Five Stars are not enough!!!!!

We have only the most beautiful words regarding Bonnie and the wonderful ceremony she so kindly crafted for us. During our first chat with her, it became very quickly apparent how positive, easygoing and attentive Bonnie was. She answered every annoying question I asked 😉! She took away, every big or small concern.
We connected right away and I decided that very Moment, that she would be the one, our wedding officiant. Bonnie gathered so many important details about us, our families, and our love for each other that she weaved into her speech. She hit every single point and even I was surprised to remember we told her certain facts! Our friends was amazed by her too and surprised that we just met once before the big day! THAT is how good she is at connecting with her couples and sharing in their joy for an event as special as a wedding renewal! It felt like we had known Bonnie forever.
Even a one year delay (because of personal setbacks), couldn’t stop Bonnie to stand by our site and keep the connection! She went above and beyond for us and gifted us with THE Vow Renewal of our dreams!
We could not recommend her enough - you will not be disappointed!

Bonnie has a beautiful way with words

Bonnie created the most beautiful ceremony for me and my husband. We interviewed several officiants in the Tampa Bay Area for our November 2023 wedding and was by far the most responsive and caring officiant we got to know. She asked us questions about how we met in order to share our story for our ceremony. Our friend and family were teary during our ceremony especially during the vows.

Bonnie was an absolute pleasure to work with and we are thankful she took part in our wedding day.

Easy and amazing

When I say Bonnie knocked it put of the park… I truly mean it. She was wonderful and so helpful from day one. There was always open communication and she strived to get to know us to create a unique and personal ceremony for us. She guided us when we had questions, and then even on the spot responded to some of our quotes in our vows. We 100% recommend her if you’re looking for a fabulous officiant. On top of it, she sends information on how to obtain your marriage license AND how to change your name. Super thankful we came across Bonnie on Instagram!

A Little About Me…

On July 7, 2021, I proudly celebrated 7 amazing years as a Wedding Officiant, performing nearly 1000 ceremonies to couples from around the world.

I believe one of the main reasons couples hire me is because I customize every ceremony I perform to ensure a very personal and memorable experience.

I began my career as a Wedding Officiant in Las Vegas and made a promise to myself that I would NEVER show up with a "canned/cookie cutter ceremony." That doesn't mean your ceremony will be long, boring and complex - it simply means that your ceremony will be created with content that best expresses the love you share for one another.

There are no words to express the overwhelming honor, love, and blessings I receive as I unite each couple in love. For these reasons, I am very passionate about what "I Do" and pour my heart into each and every couple I work.This profession is the most rewarding and fulfilling of all my life experiences.

Am I The Right Officiant For You?

It is equally as important to me, as it is to you – that we have a warm connection. To determine our compatibility, we will converse on the phone, in person, or just be pen-pals through email, and get to know each other.

This is your life changing day and you MUST be comfortable with the person that is uniting you in marriage.


My career as a Wedding Officiant began in Las Vegas where I served weddings and vow renewals along the Las Vegas strip, private homes and in the state parks. And yes...I have stories - you can't even imagine the "non traditional" weddings I have served!

Typical weddings/anniversary celebrations I serve range from small elopements of 2 people to 350 guests. My largest audience was at the Sam Boyd Stadium at the USA Sevens Rugby Tournament in Las Vegas in front of 40,000 fans and televised in 200 countries. Scary...absolutely, but exhilarating! They asked me back to marry 4 more couples, so I guess I did ok.

I have performed heartfelt ceremonies for:

  • International couples (many that did not speak English);
  • Poignant ceremonies that were a last wish for a terminally ill bride/groom and/or family member;

  • Private ceremonies for celebrities from around the world.

  • Ceremonies for disabled and special needs couples;

  • Ceremonies in hot air balloons, yachts, gondolas, on the beach, in the ocean, in a mansion, in a train car, in a barn, a chapel, many backyards, golf and country clubs, in the mountains, on a helicopter, in an airplane, in a limo, a pod on the High Roller, hotel suites, state parks, at museums, wineries, balconies and rooftops, a professional baseball diamond…and I’m sure there are more.

I have performed at least 30 different types of unity traditions and enjoy creating creative content within a ceremony that truly represents your love story and personalities. That said, if simple and traditional is your style - then that is exactly how your ceremony will be written. This is about you and your preferences - not just a "one size fits all" ceremony used on other couples.

I want your experience to be magical, meaningful, memorable, and all about the two of you. Your guests are your greatest gift on your wedding day and I have several options to include them and ensure they remain engaged throughout your ceremony.

Let’s create your memorable wedding experience together!

I look forward to hearing from you and being a part of your life changing celebration of love!

Hugs and Blessings,
