    Great Ceremony!

    Minister Debra helped us create a magical ceremony in only 2 weeks as we decided to not let COVID deter our wedding! She made the time to get to know us so that we could feel that weren't just getting a canned program. We would highly recommend her!

    Thank you, Dennis! Your ceremony was magical in so many ways, and it seemed that everyone contributed to the joy. I'll never forget it, and how we brought so much beauty to a completely scaled-down event during a pandemic year. It was my honor.

    Book with Minister Debra Ann!

    My husband and I connected with Minister Debra Ann right from the start. She was so flexible during those uncertain times at the beginning of the pandemic and very understanding when we ultimately had to postpone our wedding. During that time, we met virtually with Debra on a weekly basis for couples coaching. It gave us something to look forward to each week and I feel like I learned a lot about my significant other even though we had already been together for several years. It was a unique experience that every couple should consider prior to marriage to get a better picture of how to invest in your relationship. We also got to know Debra very well throughout those coaching sessions. This helped us feel so comfortable with our ceremony when the wedding day came this past November. Minister Debra Ann personalized every piece of our ceremony. She was able to modify some things with short notice when we cut down significantly on our wedding party and guest list in order to respect Covid guidelines. You can tell that she puts a lot of hours and diligent work into making sure your ceremony reflects what you and your spouse truly want. She also files the signed marriage license and takes it to the courthouse after your ceremony. It was so nice not to worry about that when we came back from our honeymoon! We are so thankful to have had Debra as our officiant and we will be keeping in touch with her as we continue on as husband and wife!

    Thank you for these beautiful reflections of our heartfelt work together. We accomplished so much and enjoyed fun, laughter and learning every step of the way. It was a dream affiliation, and we even mastered an impressive Savings Challenge, all because you and your husband are so dedicated to the success of your marriage. Congratulations to a remarkable couple!

    Stop your search...

    Minister Debra Ann Valentino is the real deal. When you are selecting an officiant for your wedding, you are choosing someone who will do more than just say a few words and pronounce you husband & wife, as there is much more to an officiant’s role than showing up on the big day. There are many things that go into a wedding (both pre and post ceremony) that you may not think of as a bride & groom, but Minister Debra Ann will leave no stone unturned. Debra is very knowledgeable and well prepared for everything a wedding encompasses. Her kindness, thoughtfulness, consideration and level of care/effort are unparalleled. She will treat you as more of a friend, rather than just a client, which is something I greatly appreciated. If you are looking for an excellent officiant, then look no further!

    Vista Events's reply:

    Ben, this is beautiful and humbling. I love that you say there is more "that goes into a wedding (both pre and post ceremony)" than couples realize, because that's the part they have to trust to me when they aren't even sure I can or will deliver. Thank you for assuring other couples that they can count on me. I have so enjoyed working with you and your beautiful bride, and I truly value all the appreciation and kindness you both have shown me every single step of the way. As John Keats said, "A thing of beauty is a joy forever." Thank you for such beautiful memories.
