I can't say enough about how special Reverend Patty is! We planned this wedding in three weeks so everything was last minute. If it hadn't been for her I don't think we could have made it work. She not only said yes right away, but recommended caterers and florists and even made some calls herself. She was so considerate about making it the short and simple ceremony that we wanted, really listening to our wishes. She even made a visit to our home not only to meet us but to see how everything would be set up for a surprise wedding since the guests thought they were coming to a Cinco de Mayo party. She was a big part of the surprise and our guests loved her too. Reverend Patty is a very special person and I would recommend to anyone to give her a call. Her caring ceremony was the best and so is she!Sent on 05/14/2018

Working out the details of our wedding ceremony with Rev. Spicer was simply lovely. Not only was she focused on the details of the ceremony itself, but also other aspects that make the whole day special. It was clear to us that it wasn’t just about getting through the formalities. She made sure that she got to know us a couple and the important things of our life together. Rev. Spicer’s help in preparing for the big day made us feel at ease and with virtually no nervousness one could expect for such an occasion. And though we knew much of what to expect, her execution of the details left us truly impressed and forever grateful. We of course know our love story, but Rev. Spicer brought it to life for our guests as well. Afterwards several of our guests shared with us that is was the most beautiful wedding they had attended. Thank you forever Rev. Spicer.Sent on 07/05/2019

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!Sent on 01/18/2018

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.Sent on 10/30/2017

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!Sent on 05/04/2017
An Exceptional Wedding's reply: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!

My husband arranged for a two part “surprise” for me on our recent trip to Palm Springs for our 37th Anniversary. For the first part of the surprise, he booked a tour of the Elvis Honeymoon House and as we were leaving - (2nd part!) we were met by the lovely Rev. Patty Spicer, who performed an amazingly touching Renewal of Vows Ceremony for us! Her ceremony was warm, heartfelt, personal and meaningful to us both; it was truly exceptional! The ceremony was also particularly poignant to me, as I am a wedding officiant in another state and pride myself in creating personalized and unique ceremonies for each of my couples as I feel that the ceremony is the “heart” of their day! Rev. Patty, thank you for capturing our love and life, you managed to made us laugh and cry, I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect person to perform our ceremony! With Love, Gratitude and Blessings, Suzanne and DavidSent on 11/08/2016

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!!!!Sent on 07/24/2016

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!Sent on 06/22/2016

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.Sent on 11/10/2015
Above all, she had a very calming influence on us, which helped make it a perfect day.
An Exceptional Wedding's reply:Thank you for the lovely review. It was a joy to work with you and share such a day of happiness with you. It was an intimate, relaxed, and beautiful garden wedding where all the guests felt the love you share. It was one of the best luau themes I have seen; and It was an honor and pleasure to officiate.

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!Sent on 11/09/2015

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.Sent on 11/07/2015

Searching the internet,we found Rev.Patty Spicer and were so pleased that we did..
Just talking to her made us feel at ease and comfortable. Rev.Patty was so thoughtful helping us with humor to overcome our language barrier. This very special intimate ceremony was held in a beautiful park. Suddenly it started to rain---Rev. Patty was even prepared with an umbrella,and the three of us huddled together to finalize our readings !
We will always saver and think of this wonderful time as our journey continues .
Rev.Patty is a great professional,sensitive,loving an warm individual.
We will always honer her,and we recommend her for other couples who want to renew their vows

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.Sent on 12/31/2015

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.Sent on 03/11/2015
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!Sent on 12/14/2014

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.Sent on 11/01/2014
John · Married on 09/13/2014
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.Sent on 12/20/2014

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.Sent on 04/27/2014
