My husband and I cannot say enough amazing things about Danielle. When we started the process of looking for someone to marry us, I of course spent forever reading through reviews on Wedding wire and the Knot. We came across a LOT of officiants. Danielle's reviews were so detailed and perfect that we decided to reach out to her. We scheduled a Skype call where Dan & I talked to her for at least an hour, maybe more. We got to know each other and we knew right away she was the one for the job. Later on we each filled out a long questionnaire with all of our details including the proposal, our love story, what we loved about each other, and so on. Danielle responded so fast throughout everything and helped us along the way. When we received our first draft of the ceremony, I actually was hysterical crying reading through it. I couldn't believe how personal and perfect it was. Danielle put so many ideas about unity rituals and how to make things flow the best to ensure we had the best ceremony possible. Dan & I made some edits throughout the ceremony and then Danielle scheduled a call with us to go through finishing touches before finalizing the draft. On the actual wedding day, to say Dan & I were blown away is an understatement. Every single one of my guests told me this was the most beautiful ceremony they ever witnessed. They couldn't believe how personal it was and how full of love it was. It was so unique compared to a regular church wedding which even though we are both catholic, we didn't want. We wanted to highlight what we love about each other, and how we met, and how Dan proposed, and our hopes and dreams for the future. Danielle captured ALL of this and more in the beautiful ceremony. I have to say choosing Danielle to be our officiant was the best choice we could have made. She went above and beyond in every single way. She was always ready to help us and the communication was great throughout every step of the process. Thank you so much Danielle!!Sent on 12/13/2016

Amazing to work with!
Danielle was absolutely amazing! From our first phone conversation with her we knew right away we wanted to work with her. Speaking with her you felt comfortable right away. We ended up postponing our big day to 2021 but Danielle was able to still make our mini ceremony feel so special. She was even able to change some of the wording around in the ceremony to really make it more personalized to the smaller setting. We are looking forward to working with her again in 2021 for our big ceremony!Sent on 09/18/2020

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!
I found out about Danielle through a bride’s Facebook group and I’m SO glad I did! Danielle is the kindest, most genuine person ever. From the moment my husband and I met with her, we knew we wanted her to officiate our wedding. She sent us both questionnaires that we answered separately, and she used our answers to write the most beautiful, personal ceremony that captured how we are as a couple and described our love perfectly. It was exactly what we wanted. We were able to edit the ceremony script as we pleased, but we didn’t need to make many changes! The day of our wedding, she was punctual and did a great rehearsal with us and the whole bridal party. She did an amazing job officiating! All of our guests loved the ceremony, they kept saying it all night! We are so happy we chose to work with Danielle and any couple should choose her too!!!Sent on 05/30/2021
Danielle is a natural charmer, a keen-eyed scribe and a delightful storyteller. She was meant for wedding ceremonies the way sails are made for the wind. There are probably better metaphors to describe the unique alchemy of Danielle's work in the wedding world; may many couples get to experience working with her.
