    "Deidre to the Rescue"

    A most extraordinary Officiant!
    At a most difficult time, I had no idea where to begin, in honoring my Mother in a Celebration of Life.
    Diedre's professionalism, loving support, advice and overall organization, was a tremendous help and very much appreciated.
    She gathered information from family and friends to formulate a eloquent, heartfelt and sometimes humorous remembrances of my Mom.
    The selection of poems, her comforting words and soothing voice made for a most memorable ceremony.
    Many commented on how beautifully Deidre carried out the service.
    I will forever be grateful!

    Deborah, I understand how difficult it is to lose a parent. And I know you wanted a ceremony that truly reflected your mother's love and the memories of her that you hold so dearly. I'm sure she would have loved her beautiful memorial. Thank you for the honor of choosing my services.

    Smooth as Silk

    We were looking for a professional and experienced officiant who could officiate a non-religious ceremony, and Deidra fit the bill.
    Deirdra is articulate, elegant, and has a calm demeanor that we love.
    From our very first meeting with her, we noticed that she is confident, patient, and well-organized, which made it easy for us. She was open to ideas, gave us some ideas, and communicated with our wedding coordinator right away.
    Deidra took a lot of pressure off of us. Her instructions were clear and easy to follow.
    She made sure that we could contact her via phone or email for any concerns.
    Deidra communicates very well. She promptly replies to emails and follows up on a regular basis. She often took the initiative to contact us first with any updates and to just check up on us.
    On the day of the ceremony, she arrived early, reassured and comforted us, and officiated a marvelous ceremony. It flowed as smooth as silk and we are very pleased with the outcome. Thank you, Deidra!

    Amazing ceremony!

    Deidra was absolutely wonderful! She was so proactive and organized when planning our ceremony. She was very receptive to our ideas, even when we weren't sure of what we wanted. She also checked in on us regularly, which we are thankful for, since planning a wedding from across the country can be a little overwhelming! She even helped us with the logistics of applying for a marriage license in California! Our ceremony was perfect! So many of our guests have told us how sweet and well-spoken she was. She made sure our ceremony reflected who we are, our love for one another, and even managed to include our furry son, Apollo (who was a groomsman).

    Best Officiant Ever!!!

    Deidra is AMAZING!!! She is so sweet and caring. She has a beautiful accent that will make your ceremony even beautiful. She’s well organized and will treat your wedding as one of her own. I cannot stop speaking highly of her because she was that amazing. She show up ahead of schedule and made sure everyone was present and had whatever it was they were responsible for. I didn’t not have to worry about the ceremony one bit. Deidra took care of everything regarding the ceremony, mailed our license, and communicated very well with our wedding coordinator. I trust her 100% and would definitely recommend her time and time again.

    I highly recommend Deidra as a wedding officiant. Beyond the fact that she is incredibly kind and warm, Deidra's professionalism and attention to detail blew me, my husband and family away. She crafted a very romantic ceremony that truly captured my husband and I as a couple, along with a symbolic candle lighting ceremony. Plus she has a cool Australian accent :) Do yourself a favor and hire Deidra as your wedding officiant, you won't regret it!

    Deidra Gray-Breijo officiated at our wedding on September 1st at the 94th Aero Squadron in Van Nuys. From the moment we met her I knew she was the only person I wanted to join us together in matrimony. She was gracious and poised at our first meeting even though we were sadly 15 minutes late (LA traffic.) She was engaging and receptive to our wants and needs regarding our ceremony. Soon after our first meeting she had a transcript of the ceremony which was very well thought out and we found deeply touching, just what we wanted to convey on the day. We hardly needed any revisions. She kept in contact with us through the months before the date and offered us great advice on how to manage stress and get the most out of the process that is planning a wedding. I really appreciated her Zen attitude and calm, reassuring demeanor. She reminded me to have fun and enjoy the process and not to sweat over every detail. She has that great combination of professionalism with a wonderful sense of humor that helps keep the "Bridezilla" under control. On the wedding day, Deidra arrived promptly, was dressed elegantly and appropriately for our 6:00 pm ceremony. At our venue we had planes taking off occasionally, but because of her helpful suggestions and her deft timing, the ceremony was smooth and meaningful and as perfect as one could ever hope. Her voice was mellifluous and interesting with that hint of Australian accent. It kept our guests and us engaged and entertained. I and my husband would definitely recommend her services.

    It was very clear from our first conversation with Deidra, she was the perfect person to marry us! It took us most of our engagement to figure out who it should be, and after looking through tons of officiants online, all of whom just didn't seem right, we were so relieved to find Deidra! First off, she's just a lovely human. She's kind and funny and you can just tell she loves what she does. We didn't know what kind of ceremony we wanted or what traditions should be included, but she walked us through it all, and put together a beautiful ceremony that really felt like us. Another thing we felt and appreciated is that Deidra truly believes in marriage and understands the weight and importance of it. She guided through writing our vows, along with the process of getting all the necessary paperwork in order (we needed help with both!!) We've had so many people tell us what a beautiful ceremony it was, and how it truly felt like us. I truly could not recommend Deidra more, and I can't imagine a better person to have standing there with us that day! Thank you, Deidra!

    From the moment we first met Deidre we were impressed with her warm and charming demeanor, as well as her poise and expertise. She was quite intuitive during our consultation and was able to share ideas that were exactly what we had hoped for. Deidre was extremely supportive and always available for questions as we went through the process of writing our own vows and deciding on details. Thanks to Deidre's presence on our wedding day, our ceremony was absolutely perfect- warm, inviting, personal, well paced, meaningful and memorable!

    Deidra was absolutely amazing, from our first meeting with her at her home we knew she was the officiant for us. Her professionalism, support, and advice is unparalleled. Many guests provided unsolicited positive comments regarding the ceremony that she orchestrated regarding how lovely it was. Diedra really took the time to understand my Fiance and I and our story and related it so well to our audience. We could not have imagined it going any better. If Diedra is available, book her for your event.

    We knew Deidra was going to be incredibly efficient and organized by the long and in-depth consultation we had upon first meeting her. We spent an hour and a half going over every aspect of our ceremony and we enjoyed our time with her very much. She also typed up the notes that she took so that we could check everything. She’s so attention to detail! And as for the ceremony, it was exactly what we had hoped for – beautiful and eloquent! I highly recommend Ceremonies by Deidra.

    Deidra was a delight to work with. We were apparently late to the game in looking for an officiant only six weeks before our ceremony, and we were so lucky that Deidra was available. She was quick to respond and took the time to get to know us as a couple on a weekend morning, which was the only time we were both available to meet. Deidra made sure that our ceremony ran smoothly and walked us through all of the details that we hadn’t thought of. If we ever get married again, we will be sure to use Deidra!

    Deidra was very supportive during the wedding process. She was very informative and assisted us with any questions. She made getting the marriage license super easy with all her advice. Deidra was also very caring and supportive through out our ceremony process. My husband and I wanted to write our own vows and when we were having trouble writing, Deidra gave us the advice we needed in order to complete them. She was very responsive to emails and was tentative to our questions; giving thorough and detailed answers.

    We cannot express how lucky we feel to have found Deidra to provide us with the most beautiful ceremony we have ever been to.
    She went over and beyond our expectations. Our first meeting was beautiful, she counselled us, giving us both a chance to talk about one another and then later used those expressions in our ceremony and it was genius because it really personalized our ceremony in ways other officiants don't do.
    She's lovely and gentle and genuine and there is no one else that I have seen do this kind of work, do it better

    Deidra was an absolutely amazing officiant for our wedding ceremony. From start to finish throughout the planning process to the day she was exceptional. Deidra is such a nice person to be around. She was great about answering all of my questions, and went over every detail with my husband and I. She was very helpful in so many ways.

We had absolutely no worries about or ceremony on the day of the wedding because we knew we were in such capable hands. Without hesitation we would recommend Deidra to anyone who is getting married in California. She will add class and polish to your wedding and make sure you have everything perfect. Thank you Deidra, it was such a pleasure!

    Thank you Alice for such a positive and lovely review. Both you and Ted were so sweet and such a pleasure to work with, that you made my role look easy. It's wedding celebrations like yours that reminds me how grateful I am to an Officiant.

    We couldn't have asked for a more special ceremony. Deidra was wonderful, professional, and added such a personal touch to our wedding day. We wish we could rate more than 5 Stars. Our guests were so impressed and kept asking us how how Deidra knew us so well - a true tell of how excemplory her execution was. We're so happy to have found her. Our big day wouldn't have been the same without her. Thank you so so much Deidra!!!

    My wife and I chose Deidra because we were looking for a non-religious officiant who seemed down to earth and fun, and Deidra fit the bill! From start to finish, we never regretted our decision. Deidra listened to what we were looking for and provided exactly that, while also offering occasional advice and thoughts on things we were considering. When we told her we wanted to write our own vows, she helped us with the process, providing some samples that we could start from if we wanted. The result was a ceremony that was beautiful, fun and very much us! If you're looking for a wedding officiant in the LA area, Deidra is amazing. You won't regret going with her.
