Rev Rebecca truly made the vision of our wedding come true in the most amazing, beautiful, breathtaking ceremony I could have ever dreamed of. She has an incredible gift of storytelling, writing and charisma and we are completely honored that she was the one to make it all come to life! When we first met to discuss what we wanted, we were impressed in the genuine interest she took to get to know us and what we really wanted in our ceremony, her experience is quite obvious!Sent on 02/23/2016
Again thank you so very much for the beautiful ceremony - We couldn't be happier!

Oh my...where to start?! Rebecca was AMAZING!!!! I cannot say enough good things about her!! She is calm, friendly, funny, passionate about her work, caring, punctual, and the list could go on! She is hands on from the moment you choose her. We spend almost an hour on the phone with her in order to create the perfect ceremony for my husband and I. She asked about how we met, if we had any special people we would like mentioned during the ceremony, any songs to be played, etc. It was unique just for us! We didn't want a "traditional ceremony." Guests commented after saying that they had never been to such a beautiful, unique, touching ceremony ever! She was worth every penny!! We will use her again for our vow renewal!Sent on 09/19/2017

Rebecca was the perfect person to play such an important role in our wedding. My fiance and had spent a good deal of time looking online for an officiator and had spoken to a few on the phone but none of them really seemed to 'get' us. Within a few minutes of speaking to Rebecca over the phone we both immediately knew she was going to be perfect for us. She later met with us in person and took the time to get to know us and craft a ceremony tailored to us as a couple. On the big day the ceremony could not have gone better. Rebecca is a great speaker and has great presence. Many of our guests came up to us after the ceremony asking to know more about her and where we found her. We are so grateful to have had her be apart of our wedding day. I would without a doubt recommend her to anyone looking for not just an officiant but someone to help create an experience for them and their guests. Thank you Rebecca!Sent on 08/01/2017
I had the pleasure of working with Rev. Rebecca Armstrong at a wedding ceremony recently and she was a true professional. She was already there by the time I arrived, which gave us an opportunity to go over the ceremony timeline to make sure the music and her readings synced up perfectly. She is very cordial as well as sincere and energetic. She has a great delivery when she is speaking and her candence and rhythm seems musical to me. I would love the opportunity to work with Rev. Rebecca Armstrong in a heart-beat! Thanks you Reverend!
I love working with Rev. Rebecca. Her ceremonies are always fun, heartfelt, sincere and memorable. I've seen many many ceremonies performed, hers always stand out. Looking forward to working with her in the future!
