    We met Rev. Spicer originally through the internet, we spoke on the phone a few times and then met this gracious woman the day of our ceremony. Rev. Spicer made everything so easy for us, explaining the requirements we needed to fulfill as we are from outside of the country and gathering background information about us so the ceremony would be more personal.
    On April 10, 2018, Rev Spicer married us at The Living Desert, a quiet ceremony with just 4 of us in attendance. There could have been 400 people and it still would have been exactly what we asked for. Rev. Spicer made our wedding ceremony an event that we will remember very fondly in the future.
    Thank you so much for being such a lovely lady.

    Patty was incredible! She’s very organized and ready to go. We told her how we wanted the ceremony to be about US, and that’s what it was. All of our guests said they cried and because during the ceremony they knew that we were meant to be together. And that was all because of everything Patty does to make sure your wedding is the best! Can’t thank Exceptional Weddings enough!

    Reverend Patty delivered a heart felt and wonderful ceremony. Despite never having met her prior to the rehearsal, she personalized our event by sending out lists of questions for both the bride and groom to complete. The reposes made for a very fun and intimate wedding.

    My Wife and I are very pleased with our decision to use Rev. Patty Spicer to officiate our Wedding. Patty took the time to meet with us as a couple and individually to help us develop our Exceptional Wedding. She was very helpful in providing us with a number of options and special wedding rituals to help tailor our Wedding to meet our unique needs and desires, while still maintaining the traditional core activities. She was very professional and made herself available whenever we had questions or needed clarification about the order of the procession or legal processes. Patty is kind and humorous, when appropriate, and has the perfect disposition for delivering a sweet and captivating wedding ceremony, highlighting a couples love story and connecting the guests to their relationship. If you are looking to have an "Exceptional Wedding" look no further, as Rev. Patty will make it happen!

    Dear Jon and Cindy, thank you for the glowing review. I loved working with you to design this wedding ceremony. Incorporating some of the Chinese traditions for Cindy made it very special. Your wedding was romantic, elegant, beautiful, personal, and fun Your wedding dinner and your traditional Chinese ceremony dress created a spectacular and most memorable experience for all. Thank you for letting me share this wonderful day with you!

    Without a doubt the best decision my husband and I have made. On a short notice and quick to reply, Rev. Patty Spicer made our dream come true. Surrounded by our families and close friends she delivered the magical, romantic, and intimate ceremony we both have always wanted. She kept us laughing and smiling the entire time for our pictures. She is AMAZING!!! She was the first and only person I contacted to see if she was available to officiate our wedding on a 2 month notice (4th of July weekend). Talking to her on the phone and meeting her in person we were sure of our selection. She's very professional and so loving. She got to know my husband and I and we live out of state!! She is quick to respond and with her added touches to our ceremony made everything perfect! Everyone in attendance loved it!! Thank you Rev. for everything!!!!

    With love, Bryan and Valerie Jackson

    Our wedding was truly exceptional because of Rev. Patty. She made the ceremony so personal, intimate, and turned it into a unique, joyous celebration between two people who have finally found their soulmate. Emotions poured throughout the ceremony which has left each guests' heart filled with the same passion as the newlyweds. There were tears of joy and laughter throughout our nuptials, what a way to inaugurate our beginning. Our wedding was perfect! We highly recommend Rev. Spicer!

    Reverend Patty exceeded our expectations with both the service and her professionalism. We will highly recommend her to both family and friends. She performed a very personal wedding ceremony for us. Everyone at the wedding thought that she had known us for years, rather than just a few short weeks.
    Above all, she had a very calming influence on us, which helped make it a perfect day.

    We had so many wonderful comments about Reverend Patty after our ceremony. Tons of our guests told us that it was the best wedding ceremony they have ever attended. Her ceremony was personalized to the two of us, which made it very unique. There wasn't a dry eye in the house by the end of it!

    Rev. Patty was all we had dreamed of in a celebrant and more. We didn't have to worry about a thing, she organized everything and was very helpful in answering any questions (particularly seeing as we are from Australua and were unfamiliar with the U.S. Wedding process). We have had so many compliments on her ceremony with guests saying it was the most beautiful ceremony they have experienced. We are so glad we went with Rev Patty and would highly recommend her to others.

    Dear Sarah and Peter,
    You are a gorgeous couple (family) whose love is so apparent to all. Although you wanted a "relaxed and casual" atmosphere, it was quite elegant with stylishly dressed guests and family. I was pleased how many of your guests came from Australia to celebrate you. It was an honor and very special for me to share in your wedding day and include your vows to baby Saskia.
    Please keep in touch with photos and email. Fondly, Rev. Patty

    It was wonderful to have Rev. Spicer be a part of our wedding. Not only is she a pilar of the community in Palm Springs, but her personal commitments to family and marriage made the words she spoke even that much more meaningful. A great overall experience.

    Rev. Patty Spicer did a terrific job at my weeding. She went over everything we needed to do to make my wedding to my wife perfect. From the first step to the last, if you have a question she will answer it for you. I highly recommend Patty Spicer if you want your big day to go off without a hitch.

    We loved Reverend Spicer, we were so happy with the ceremony she developed for us. Our wedding was just me and my husband, so without the right Reverend it could have felt too casual or sterile. We did not meet in person, but Reverend Spicer took the the time before the ceremony to get to know us via email, find out what the experience we were looking for and really personalize the event. It was the right length of time and had many special moments. It had exactly the level of gravitas a wedding should. It was intimate and sweet, and just how we dreamed the moment would be.

    Prior to actually having a wedding ceremony, I did not realize how important having the right Reverend is. We found Rev. Spicer via Google, and frankly lucked out by finding her. Having now gone through the experience, I know the wrong person would have given the wrong tone and seriously marred our special day. Thank you Reverend Spicer!

    If you would like your ceremony to be exceptional, look no further than Rev Patty. Our ceremony was both touching, sweet and completely personalized with Rev Patty. All of our guests raved during the entire reception about what an absolutely beautiful and amazing job she did. From our first meeting with Rev Patty and our phone conversations regarding our ceremony, she created our ceremony with all the personal details and touches we were looking for. She also included a beautiful certificate and our complete ceremony in calligraphy for us to cherish forever. I would give Rev Patty 10 stars if I could!

    Although we are from out of country, Patty made planning our ceremony so easy for us. She added personal touches that we found to be very heartfelt, which was especially unexpected considering we mostly communicated through email leading up to the event.

    Rev. Patricia Spicer created a very personal service that a all of our guests commented was the best they've ever attended. It was warm and full of love and appropriately the best part of our wedding. She made the effort to commute to Joshua Tree for us and was full of great advice leading up to the day. I would highly recommend her to any couple.

    So many words can be said about Rev. Spicer, and how amazing our wedding was because of her service at our wedding. The customization, flexibility, special ceremonies, verses, and ability to capture the moment are only a few things that make her perfect for a wedding. What my wife and I both agree on, is that no other officiant would have been better. How are you supposed to feel when the majority, if not all, guests come up to you and say something in the words of, "This is not just one of the best weddings I have been to,... but the CEREMONY was the BEST I have ever seen". Many couples will have some of the best ceremony experiences ever if you have Patty Spicer at your wedding. Period.

    My wife and I were planning to elope, but decided after some consideration to include our parents and siblings. I mentioned this because our ceremony was very intimate, just 10 people. In this setting the caliber of your officiant must be second to none. Patty proved to be up to the challenge. She was proactive in her preparations, staying on top of us, making sure we responded to her inquiries and gave input. Her price was fair and she was not afraid to offer honest advice and consult for all aspects of our day. This led to a ceremony perfect pitch in both emotion and humor. Patty was as much a part of our special day as our family was and we highly recommend her.

    We live in Barcelona, Spain and decided to get married at my parents' home in Palm Springs. We chose Reverend Patty as we trusted her to provide us a special wedding and she delivered. She skillfully weaved our personal information into the ceremony highlighting the important facts of our love story.

    Susana and Dan, thank you for your very nice review. It was a challenge to work out the details of what you wanted to include in your ceremony with the different traditions of the USA and Spain, the hour difference for emails, and last minute surprises. You are a beautiful couple and the wedding was romantic, sweet, and special. It was an honor and privilege to be your officiant and get to know you.

    Rev. Patty was the perfect person to officiate our very small wedding. We arranged it at the very last minute and this did not phase her one bit. She was extremely knowledgable about the process and walked us through each step. This was especially helpful as we are not Americans and don't fully understand the bureaucracy in this country yet. I was able to talk to Patty in depth about what we wanted from the day in terms of location, flowers, photographer and budget and she absolutely delivered on this and more!!! On the actual day she was great- romantic, thoughtful and fun. She was an integral part of making it so special and we couldn't have done it without her. Highly recommended.

    We cannot say enough about Rev. Patty! She was beyond wonderful and such a joy to be with. After our first meeting, we knew we wanted her to be the one officiating our ceremony. She is a true professional and her experience goes a long way. During the wedding planning process, our communication was frequent. We knew that Rev. Patty was planning OUR perfect ceremony. Her attention to details and completely gaining an understanding for our vision was top notch.

    At first in the planning process I did not realize how important it would be to completely enjoy the person that is performing the ceremony, but I can without a doubt say, that Rev. Patty was perfection for us.

    We have received compliment after compliment on how special and unique our ceremony was. Our guests truly got to know our love story and were completely engaged. All of our family and friends loved how personal, meaningful and touching the ceremony was. Rev. Patty takes great pride in her what she does, and it is completely evident to all involved.

    She was wonderful beyond imagination, and we are so so thankful that our wedding coordinator, Nicole Alexandra Designs, shared her name with us. I am more than happy to discuss with anyone looking to use Rev. Patty for your ceremony. I can be reached at kaceykennedyroth@gmail.com
