    Extraordinary from Start to Finish!

    We're a nontraditional couple that chose to have our destination micro-wedding (26 guests) in New Orleans, and we knew it would be vital to have an officiant that could match our laidback, but intimate energy. We were beyond lucky to find LaToya, and she was a perfect fit from start to finish.

    We knew from the first phone call that she was THE officiant for us! She got back to us very quickly after our initial inquiry, was transparent about her pricing, and provided us with templates that helped us consider what we wanted our ceremony to look/feel like.

    Our friend streamed and recorded our ceremony on Zoom for distant family to join virtually, and we realized that our ceremony was a total of 12 minutes long. It was 12 minutes of perfection for us, and afterwards SEVERAL of our guests told us they thought LaToya was fantastic. She had a major impact on both us and our guests in a short amount of time. She had all of us laughing, crying, and remaining present for our magical moment at the altar. With the mention of some of our sweetest memories around about how we met, what we enjoy, etc, LaToya created a space of ultimate joy.

    Prior to the wedding, we only met via Zoom because we chose not to have a wedding rehearsal, but LaToya showed up for us in the biggest way and brought our ceremony dreams to life. We are eternally grateful.

    A truly beautiful and loving experience

    I cannot do justice in describing our experience with LaToya of Waning Moon Weddings. We were attracted to her business by the photos on her website of her beautiful smile. We were not disappointed when we connected with her. She made us feel special every step of the way. On the practical side, she was efficient and professional. But on the more emotional side, she put us at ease and personalized our tiny elopement. We feel very fortunate to have had her as part of our wedding. We recommend her enthusiastically!
