    Perfect choice for our wedding day!

    Nanette was an exceptional officiant from beginning to end. I knew from our first call with her that she was the right officiant for us. She is so experienced, easy to work with, and considerate. She was eager for our feedback to ensure ceremony was exactly the ceremony we had been imagining. With Nanette as our officiant, our wedding day was low stress and absolutely beautiful. We cannot recommend her highly enough!

    A present, kind, and genuine officiant

    We spoke to Nanette over the phone to discuss our elopement at the Biltmore in Santa Barbara. She took the time to get to know us and was unbelievably kind. She truly made a positive impact on our private ceremony. Her script was beautiful and reflected us as a couple. Life can be very charming sometimes. Thanks, Nanette! We hope our paths cross again soon. - Ross and Robbie

    Warm, special, unique presence

    We are so grateful to Nanette for being our wedding officiant. She made the entire experience feel so meaningful and yet so effortless. Her presence, both in-person and over phone/email, was immediately warm and calm -- and the more we got to know each other during the process of crafting our ceremony, the more we felt truly lucky to have her unique guidance. She was incredibly respectful and encouraging of our ideas for the ceremony and vows, and provided us with wonderful options for how best to include my daughter in our ceremony in a way that would be the most comfortable for her and all of us. We received many compliments afterwards from family/friends about how special our ceremony was, and how it felt "just right" for us. We will never forget our tearful thank you hug with Nanette after the ceremony was over -- we were not the only ones tearing up! It was so clear that Nanette cares deeply about her couples and felt a real connection to us, and she approaches her work with profound respect and importance. Thank you, Nanette!

    A Beautiful and Personal Ceremony

    Nanette did an amazing job writing and officiating our wedding ceremony. We knew we were not going to have a religious wedding ceremony but wanted to have a personalized and meaningful event. She even helped us work in some Jewish traditions and secular prayers that spoke to our individual backgrounds.

    Nanette did an amazing job getting to know us as a couple leading up to the wedding. She really "got" us and it showed in her work. We spoke on the phone, email and met for coffee leading up to the wedding. She provided us with the ceremony script a month before the wedding. This made us feel calm and confident that the day would go off without a hitch.

    We highly recommend using Nanette for your wedding ceremony.

    What a great experience!

    Wow! We absolutely love Nanette -- she is so amazing at what she does and she's an amazing person as well. From the start we knew we made the right choice working with Nanette as we immediately felt a warm and comforting connection to her. She took a lot of time to deeply understand us as individuals as well as a couple. She also had us do several activities which helped us think, reflect, and strengthen our own understandings of ourselves and our relationship. This was not something we initially had even considered for our marriage, but after going through it we are so glad we did it! Nanette's process was invaluable and she was so fun and comforting all along the way. She has such a warm and inviting way about her, it really was a joy to engage with her. She did a ton of work to deeply understand us, provide guidance, and ultimately she worked it all perfectly into our ceremony script. And it was at the ceremony that you could fully see the depth of her expertise. She did such an amazing job officiating the wedding and telling our stories! The whole family was blown away by how well she did and how personalized the ceremony was to not just ourselves but also to our guests. We got so many comments after on just how well she did. We were simply blown away by the overall experience, and cannot recommend Nanette highly enough! She's amazing, full stop. And we look forward to continuing our relationship with her in the future as another source of inspiration and guidance.

    Nanette Made Our Day

    Nanette made our elopement ceremony so special! Her honest and heartfelt approach made us feel so comfortable. Even though we did not have our family or friends with us, she made us feel very loved and celebrated in our union. She is a caring and loving person that truly enjoys rejoicing in others happiness. We just loved having Nanette be our wedding officiant. Nanette also willingly accommodated our change of venue from Santa Barbara to Ventura, which we really appreciated.

    Exactly what we wanted

    In your mind, you have an idea of what you want your wedding ceremony to be like. But it can be hard to convey those feelings to someone who has to actually make them happen. When we started working with Nanette, we could tell that this was the right path. She has a very good process of getting to know everything about each individual, as well as our relationship together. After 3 rounds of detailed questionnaires (via email because we both travel a lot, so bonus points for flexibility there!), we met to go over everything. It was an easy process, Nanette did a beautiful job with her writings, and also gave us great confidence in the entire ceremony ahead. She helped keep my wife calm, and was absolutely perfect when the time came to have the ceremony. I can honestly say we would change nothing about that moment. It felt personal, fun, special, and full of wisdom/inspiration. Thank you Nanette!

    Nanette was our wedding officiant for our Santa Barbara wedding and she was incredible to work with. She is responsive with communication and after meeting to get to know each other, she wrote a beautiful ceremony for us. The ceremony and vows were personalized and included details about our relationship - which made the ceremony really special for us. We would definitely recommend Nanette for your wedding officiant needs! She is professional, warm, and sincere. We were so happy she was a part of our special day.

    We are SO happy we choose Nanette to be our officiant! She really made our ceremony so personal and beautiful. Our wedding day went by so fast and many things were a blur, but the one thing we do fully remember is the ceremony and how special it was. We couldn't have found a better person to be a part of our day. Nanette has such a calming energy, we felt at peace during the whole process and really connected with her. We went with the full package (a fully personalized ceremony and two pre-marital coaching sessions), and it was beyond worth it! Nanette crafted the most beautiful ceremony we've ever heard and it was just for us, which made it even more special. She was lovely to work with with through the entire experience; from pre-marital coaching, rehearsal and wedding day. I would HIGHLY recommend Nanette to anyone looking for a really special experience. We could not be happier with how things turned out! Thank you Nanette for everything! You truly made our day so memorable :)

    Nanette was incredible to work with. She crafted a beautiful and fitting ceremony that captured us as a couple and resonated deeply with our guests. She masterfully guided us through the process of writing our own vows for each other. We uncovered much about ourselves as we worked with her to realize our unique ceremony and cherish very much the journey and the outcome. Her presence on our wedding day was one of ease, sincerity and joy; she found her words effortlessly and was a source of support for us both. Our parents and guests have all reached out to ask more about Nanette, expressing how moved and impressed they were with the ceremony. We are so grateful, thank you, Nanette !!

    Nanette was fantastic! She made planning our wedding ceremony easy, was very available for communication as we planned our wedding from across the country, and made us very comfortable throughout the process. Our actual ceremony was beautifully done and with so many moving parts on the wedding day, we did not worry at all about the ceremony. Nanette is calm, experienced, organized, and warm. We could not recommend her highly enough!

    Nanette was great from the very beginning. Although we were long distance, she reached out to us over the phone to get to know us from an early point which we thought was awesome. She has a warm personality and is super easy to get along with. She is very organized, professional, and punctual as she was at our rehearsal before everyone in the wedding party arrived. Our rehearsal went smooth because of her coordination - she's a true professional and it's easy to tell that she's done this many times before. Our wedding coordinator even made a comment of how experienced she seemed. She performed a BEAUTIFUL ceremony for us and created a beautiful ceremony program - she gave us many options which we liked because it showed she was open and respectful. She also is extremely calming...definitely talented in her profession. If you're considering using Nanette for your special day, think no more, she won't let you down,

    Nanette was amazing! She did a beautiful job writing our ceremony, and we couldn't be happier! She asked us questions to make sure the whole thing was personalized for us, and we got to review what she wrote for the ceremony in advance, which I really liked.

    Nanette was an absolute DREAM. She offers 3 different styles of ceremony (with so MUCH flexibility within each), and I highly recommend her 3rd option, the most personal one. Her process of creating a personalized ceremony is such a wonderful experience to have before the wedding. She did all the heavy lifting by writing and creating the ceremony, but at the same time, made sure we felt like feel like we had a voice, and were involved in the process. She also made us both feel so taken care of, and relieved some nervousness about “public” speaking and allowing ourselves to be “publicly” vulnerable and open. She made something that could have been stressful and challenging feel really good. I would give Nanette 11 out of 10 if I could!

    My fiancé and I went back and forth about doing pre-marital counseling and finally took everyone's advice and decided to go for it. We are SO happy that we did! Nanette provided such a warm and welcoming environment to discuss our relationship and soon-to-be marriage that we didn't even feel like it was counseling, but just deeper, more meaningful conversations. Even though my fiancé and I had already lived together and thought we knew everything about each other, you prepare for marriage by learning things about one another through conversations you may not have on a normal basis and Nanette helps guide you there. Ceremonies By Nanette is such a true joy when it comes to not only your ceremony, but pre-marital counseling as well. She has now become a person we can reach out to at any time as a support system. Thank you, Nanette!

    Nanette was incredibly professional and responsive from the moment we reached out to inquire about officiating our wedding. She gave us options to reflect our spiritual values and taylor our vows to personalize the ceremony to our needs. Nanette has a beautiful presence and her words felt meaningful and added such warmth to the courthouse venue. We loved her demeanor and command when we felt unsure of timing or direction. We highly recommend Nanette for her commitment to making our ceremony personalized and special! Thank you Nanette!

    Nanette was an absolute joy to work with for our wedding ceremony! She magically delivered an emotional, energetic, and personal representation of the thoughts we wanted to share, the love we have for each other, and our family & friends that were there. Of all my wedding planning decisions, I can honestly say she was one of the best we made, and if we ever renew our vows, we will be giving her another call! I highly, highly recommend Nanette!

    We loved working with Nanette. Right from the first phone conversation through all the planning that followed, she was responsive, helpful, and thoroughly professional. At the wedding, she handled the ceremony with warmth and grace, and several people told us afterward how much they enjoyed her delivery of the ceremony. We couldn't be happier with our choice of officiant, and we highly recommend her.

    Sending you and Mike all the best,
    Nanette
