    Magical day with Carmen

    We were lucky enough to have Carmen as our wedding officiant on 10/26/19. We met her beforehand in person, and she really spent the time getting to know us . She was genuine, professional, warm, and lovely to be around. She worked with us to generate the best wedding script for our day. She arrived the day of our wedding on-time and excited to be there. She carried out the ceremony beautifully and supported us throughout the day. I cannot recommend her enough! She is fantastic to work with and truly made our day special. Thank you Carmen!

    Our experience

    Carmen was very interested in getting to know the bride and groom before marrying us! She really speaks from the heart and is committed to making this the best, and most memorable day of your life. She has no judgement on if you want a very religious wedding or minimal religion. I would recommend her to anyone!

    A beautiful ceremony

    Carmen was wonderful to talk to and really got to know our relationship and story. After talking with her through FaceTime she sent us a draft of what she planned on saying for our ceremony. It was so thoughtful and well written we didn’t even need to make any changes to it! She was there for our rehearsal and made sure we were comfortable with the timing and order of everything so we could rest easy the night before the wedding. Our ceremony was perfect and we know that her words were very meaningful and spoken from the heart! You need to have Carmen as your wedding officiant, she made the whole thing so relaxed and easy!! Thank you Carmen!!

    Carmen Made Our Day So Special!

    Carmen helped to make our ceremony so special and specific to us. From the moment I booked Carmen as our wedding officiant, she was responsive, helpful and she took great care to make sure everything at the ceremony was what we wanted. We received so many compliments from our guests on how special and unique to us as a couple our ceremony felt! I could not recommend Carmen enough!

    Our wedding

    Carmen is very personable and professional, she gave us a lovely experience. She also went above and beyond our expectations adding a bit of her personal touch to the way things went. We couldn’t have chosen a better officiant or person for that matter.

    Absolutely amazing

    Carmen made the whole process so easy and made us feel so comfortable. I have known Carmen for years and love her dearly, she really took the time to get to know my husband and our relationship. When she sent us what she had written for our wedding, I literally bawled. I felt as though she had known mine and Troys relationship for years.

    Phenomenal

    Carmen was phenomenal, she is so personable and professional. We met with her in person prior to the ceremony and she was quickly able to assess and distill our relationship details into a great ceremony script. She was prompt with communication regarding the ceremony and was always able to answer our questions. During the rehearsal and ceremony Carmen was perfect, she was great with our friends and relatives and kept everything flowing and made sure we all felt prepared. Her personal touches were also great. We cannot recommend her enough, we are so happy that we decided to have her officiate our wedding.

    Carmen was amazing! She was very open to what we wanted and made sure it was exactly that. Our first wedding script was perfect and she had so many amazing ideas that we never thought of. I would highly recommend her! She’s amazing!

    Carmen helped to make our day very special. She took the time to really get to know us as a couple before beginning to put together our ceremony. The result was a very personalized and meaningful ceremony that was a true expression of us. Many of our guests were moved to tears and nearly all of them took time to tell us how much they loved the ceremony.

    Look no further if you want a beautiful ceremony and vows that are meaningful and express who you are as a couple - Carmen is the best!!!!!

    Carmen is an absolute joy! We found her through sheer luck of the internet when we wanted to find someone who could perform a nondenominational ceremony. She did an amazing job of getting to know us and helping fit the ceremony to us. Thank you so much Carmen for helping make our day special!

    I've never met someone who was so warm immediately! Carmen provided us with the ease and comfort of a long time friend while delivering a professional and beautiful ceremony. The crowd loved her as much as we did! Before she even wrote our script, she invited us into her home, baked cookies and spent countless hours getting to know us. She is now someone that is a huge part of our lives and a life long friend. I highly recommended Carmen for an officiant services needed!

    I had such a wonderful experience with Carmen. She was flexible in scheduling. I had to change venues the day before and she was completely understanding and flexible. The day of the ceremony she was punctual. She was beautifully dressed for the occasion. Her personality was very warm, very attentive, very friendly, very professional. I wouldn't change a single thing about "My Special Day" Thank you Carmen for such a fantastic experience! I am forever grateful.

    As someone who wanted a wedding unique to my husband and I, I was struggling with finding a perfect officiant who made the ceremony personal for the two of us, after speaking with several generic and unpersonal officiates about what they had to offer I was finally able to find Carmen and I cannot be more thankful that I found her! She made sure she got to know my husband and I on a personal level to set our ceremony apart from anyone else. I felt like every moment was personal and special.

    My wife and I can not say enough good things about Carmen. Every aspect of working with her went perfectly. She listened and catered to our requests, she made herself available, and she has a way about her that makes you feel very comfortable. My wife and I both have Christian backgrounds but we didn't want the ceremony to be a sermon; Instead we wanted more of a celebration of our love and relationship. Carmen created a ceremony that fit our desires exactly. Carmen truly cares for and enjoys bringing people together in marriage and I would recommend her to anyone.

    Thanks, Carmen!

    5 out of 5 for EVERYTHING. Carmen was amazing. She was personable, communicative, organized and professional. She did an amazing job at our ceremony, and was able to handle our rowdy bridal party at the rehearsal :D I would HIGHLY suggest going with Carmen for your wedding!!! She made it all so special.

    Carmen was wonderful to work with, truly flexible! It was difficult to find an officiant that would have no problem providing a service for a same-sex couple. When it came to our ecperience with her, we truly felt that she cared about our relationship and that she wanted to know as much as possible in order to provide the best service. She was a natural and blended in as if she were family! Would recommend to any couple.
