Vicki is a Godsend!! :)
Vicki was fantastic! I do know that one of my greatest “unknowns” was how our elopement ceremony would be structured being that there was not going to be any guests – I was wondering how it would all go down. She did a phenomenal job of providing marriage license information, courthouse locations, ceremony drafts and revisions. She scheduled a rehearsal call before our elopement day. That was extremely helpful. We worked through the details and even picked out a song that would lead us in and out of the ceremony - something I had even thought about. This process was much easier than I expected thanks to Vicki. She was so patient and understanding of the fact that up until the night before, we still hadn’t decided on our exact ceremony location. She was mindful of the lack of cell service in the mountains, so simply asked that I send her the coordinates at least five hours before the ceremony since she would be getting on the road and losing cell service. She even took on the daunting task of zipping up my wedding dress! :) We highly recommend Vicki!! :)Sent on 10/09/2019

A lovely and effortless experience!
Our wedding wouldn't have been what it was without Vicki. It was a total joy and effortless experience from the moment we reached out to Vicki. The ceremony words she suggested for our wedding were beautiful and hardly need altering to align with us as a couple. She was dedicated to making our ceremony perfect and left us feel so at ease! Thank you, Vicki!Sent on 08/10/2019

Vicki made the planning so simple and was so fantastic during the planning process. We had a remote location and she was all in on it, personalized everything for us and made our day so special. We could not have been luckier to have found her. Thank you again!Sent on 09/24/2019

Vicki was FANTASTIC to work with. She provided multiple sample templates and allowed us to pick, choose, and customize our ceremony however we wanted. She also provided a fun questionnaire that was incredibly helpful when it came time to draft our vows.Sent on 11/09/2019
On the day of, she spoke beautifully- clear, slow, and with lots of inflection. Our guests couldn’t stop telling me how moved they were & that they cried during the ceremony. Choose Vicki to officiate- one of the easiest decisions we made in the whole planning process.

Vicki was so amazing, she helped us pick our outdoor venue spot! My husband and I are actually from Wisconsin, so we were not familiar with the area. She preformed a profession, fun, and engaging ceremony. Took care of the marriage certificate for us. She was truly outstanding! Also super flexible was able to move the wedding up 3 hours due to weather and she was able to assist us! Would recommend to anyone!!Sent on 05/29/2019
Big Sky Country Minister's reply:I'm so happy that the spot we picked on the Yellowstone River was to your liking. (Actually, I think its the best spot on the river period!) Your family braved the misty springtime weather and the photos turned out gorgeous. Best of luck to you both and I hope you return to Paradise Valley soon!

She literally made our wedding magical by supporting our spiritual views and guiding us through a traditional pagan handfasting.
Vicki helped us through writing our ceremony on short notice. She can help just about anyone piece together a ceremony from any background or spiritual belief. She was a joy to work with and very punctual and easy. She made it the best day.Sent on 12/08/2019

Wonderful wedding in Montana
We arrived in Montana for our wedding and our officiant cancelled. Vicki changed her own plans, on Christmas Eve no less, to give us the perfect intimate wedding ceremony that we had wanted. Her words were beautiful and she is a wonderful person and officiant.Sent on 12/24/2018

Vicki's the best!!!
We loved working with Vicki as our wedding minister. She was a great partner in this journey with us. Vicki was a great resource in putting our wedding ceremony and wedding vows together. She worked with us to make the ceremony a wedding we and our guests would remember while being extremely understanding and sensitive to our belief systems and background. The ceremony was beautiful and spectacular, and exactly what we asked for and more! Thank you Vicki.......''Olya and JohnSent on 12/30/2018

I don’t know what I expected from my elopement ceremony but Vicki’s beautiful words far surpassed anything I had in mind. She helped my husband & I craft our own vows which I didn’t even know we had in us. In addition her choice of ceremony was intuitive on a personal level from just a single phone conversation. She has an instinctive gift for creating special ceremonies and I have no doubt she would be a valuable addition to your special day. I highly recommend her!Sent on 09/06/2018
Big Sky Country Minister's reply:Thank you so much, Holly! I'm glad it was everything you wanted. Such a magical spot up in the mountains and yes, your vows were awesome! Best of luck to you both! xx - Vicki

Big Sky Country Minister's reply:Thank you so much Jessica! You did an amazing job writing your vows, and it was my pleasure to be part of your big day. Yes, I love to travel, and the Black Mountain Ranch in Helena was the perfect MT venue! Best of luck to you!!

Vicki was the perfect choice for our outdoor, casual, rustic, simple wedding. She was professional, friendly, caring, and amazing to work with. We loved her ideas, coaching, and partnership as we wrote the ceremony and our vows. She was the best! We loved her and our guests did too!Sent on 08/14/2018
Big Sky Country Minister's reply:It was such a pleasure to work with you both! I absolutely loved the log arch that Dave built for the ceremony - so gorgeous. The shotgun sendoff was pretty fun too. Thank you for including me in your big day and best of luck to you both!

Dave and I knew we had picked the right person to officiate our wedding in Paradise Valley from the moment we first talked to her on the phone. She was very excited to work with us, listened to our needs, and offered as much help as we needed to plan our ceremony. She even helped us with our vows! She kept us calm and the process was stress free! We had a beautiful ceremony and a very special day! Thank you so much Vicki!!!Sent on 06/12/2018
Big Sky Country Minister's reply:It was such a pleasure to work with you both. The scenery was spectacular, and I loved how there was a roll of thunder just as we began to pray, and how two cranes circled overhead the whole time. A perfect day! Thank you so much for your kind words, and maybe I'll see you again the next time you visit Paradise Valley!
Abbi · Married on 05/07/2018
Our ordain told us Sunday morning he couldn't make it to our wedding and our wedding was Monday (the next day!) My husband's God Father found Vicki online and we were in contact with her talking about our vows within a few hours of the bad news. She was so quick to respond and really wanted to help us, and she made our ceremony better than we could've asked for.Sent on 05/18/2018
Big Sky Country Minister's reply:I'm so glad that I could be there for you, Abbi! You're not the first bride to call in a slight panic. Best of luck to you both in the future!

A perfect, personal experience. I highly recommend minister Vicki!Sent on 04/09/2018
Big Sky Country Minister's reply:What a wonderful ceremony, and the snow couldn't have been more perfect. I especially loved how Jay referenced the Velveteen Rabbit in his vows - it made me tear up, and I'll definitely try to use it in the future. Best of luck to you both, and thank you!!

Vickie was amazing! We had a non traditional wedding and Vickie was able to work everything in perfectly! She encouraged us to write our own vows, with her assistance of course, and it turned out beautiful. She did an amazing job getting to know us, and we’re in Florida. I highly recommend Vickie...amazing lady!Sent on 12/28/2017
Judy · Married on 07/04/2017
Vicki was great! She is very professional, helpful and personable. She helped us plan our ceremony for our destination wedding in Yellowstone on the 4th of July. She adapted quickly to any changes we had along the way. She responded in a timely manner to any questions or concerns that the we had whether it was email or phone. Soon after meeting "in person" she felt like a life long friend that wanted the enjoy our wedding as much as we did. Between her and our photographer, Mike Greener of Greener Visuals we couldn't have asked for a better wedding day! Great thanks to both!Sent on 07/12/2017

Vicky recently officiated my husband's and my wedding. She did an amazing job from start to finish. She was focused on helping us get what we wanted out of the ceremony and helped us personalize the ceremony to our tastes. Vicki was very friendly and sweet and checked in on us often to see how things were going. Day of, Vicki performed excellently and the vows she helped us write turned out perfect. I highly recommend Vicki as an officiant as she is so easy to work with. You won't be disappointed.Sent on 07/22/2017
