We could not have had anyone better than Claudia for our wedding ceremony. When we first met it was over a Skype call but we knew right away we made the right choice. Claudia has such a wonderful energy and is so easy to communicate with. The way she understood my husband and I and what we were looking for in our ceremony made planning easy and stress free. She even made suggestions we would have never even thought of that we ended up using in the ceremony. The rehearsal went so smoothly and she was able to instruct everyone in an informative yet easy going manner. Even when rain changed things on our wedding day, she was quick to adapt and keep the ceremony flowing smoothly. We are truly grateful to have worked with someone who was able to understand so much about us and our love for each other. Family and friends can't say enough about how personal and beautiful our ceremony was. Thank you Claudia!
Claudia was a pleasure to work with and we cannot recommend her enough! Claudia is passionate about her work and took the time to truly understand my husband and I. She asked thought provoking questions during our first meeting that made their way into a beautify crafted ceremony script! We used her wedding vow guide as a tool to create personalized vows, held a beautiful rose ceremony for our mothers and enjoyed her poem and blessing selections throughout. Claudia guided us throughout the entire process and we felt confident with her by our side. Thank you for helping make our wedding day a dream come true!
Claudia was amazing, from the moment we first spoke until after our ceremony was done, and through every little detail in between!!! She goes above and beyond! We had a maid of honor dress disaster the day of rehearsal dinner. My MOHs dress got lost in the mail and we were going to buy a new one last minute, we called Claudia to push back our rehearsal time. She with out hesitation agreed and said no problem at all! She made our special day just as I was dreamed it would be!!! So many thanks to her! ❤️
Thanks, Caitlin! Your & Micheil's wedding was really something special! Thanks for choosing to work with me and celebrate in such a meaningful way! All the best to you both!
Claudia was perfect! So glad we found her. She is outgoing, well spoken, at ease, and professional.
Deb - Your love and commitment were so beautiful, even a torrential rainstorm couldn't dampen the mood! Thanks for trusting me to be a part of your big day!
Claudia is amazing! From the first time we spoke on the phone, she was so helpful and open to what we were looking for. We also changed location last minute and she was great with it! She was always there for questions and support. Made the day smooth and perfect. Highly recommend Claudia!
Hi Michelle. Thank you for your kind words! Your "simple elopement" was simply beautiful! I was honored to be a part of your special day, and so glad you chose 'Simply Unforgettable Elopements' to marry & photograph you!!
Claudia was awesome from the very first time we met her! She responded to my inquiry immediately and was incredibly accommodating! We were planning our wedding in the Capital Region, but we live an hour and a half away. Claudia set up our first meeting at a location halfway between both towns, and was flexible in scheduling our second meeting for a time when we were already in the area meeting with our venue. At our first meeting, we felt comfortable with her right away. She took a genuine interest in our story and in our expectations for our ceremony. Claudia did not just hand us vows that we would be using, but instead helped us incorporate our own unique touches into the ceremony. The result was a breathtaking ceremony that fit our relationship perfectly. We selected vows that perfectly described our relationship, but did not realize how emotional they would be to say in front of all of all friends and family until it was time to recite them. I was fighting back tears throughout the vows! Luckily, Claudia noticed this and injected some light humor into the ceremony. She adapted easily to all the changes that occurred that day (rain moving the ceremony, dropping the rings during the ring exchange), and had such a positive attitude that was downright contagious! All of the guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was, and how friendly Claudia was! We never would have thought that someone we found online and had never met before would end up being more than just a “vendor” contributing toward our big day, but Claudia made such an impact on both of us that we felt like close friends by the end of the process. We are truly hoping to have another occasion to meet up with her in the future, and are beyond happy that we had the opportunity to work with her for such a special day.
Wow. Just Wow. Thank you, Danielle, for your wonderful words! I knew that you and Anthony were looking for something "out of the ordinary" for your wedding, and I'm so glad our paths crossed and we were able to work together to make your dreams come true! I wish you both all the best!
We hired Claudia for our wedding on 4/21/2018, and I’m so glad we did! Several of our guests commented that she was the perfect balance of seriousness and humor, and we absolutely agree. She was very easy to work with and was super organized helping us talk through ideas. Our ceremony was so special to us, and we’re so grateful to her for all the work she put in making it absolutely perfect!
Hi Katie. Thanks for taking the time to write such a lovely review! Knowing that John is a writer, I wanted to make your ceremony extra special... I'm so happy to hear that you (and your guests) were pleased with how it all turned out! All the best!
Asking Claudia to officiate our wedding was one of the best decisions we made! She brought professionalism, organization and most importantly her warm heart showing how much she loves doing what she does. We were provided with scripts before hand which she adapted to suit our wishes and she gave us ideas for the structure of our vows. I couldn't have asked for anything better and will be recommending her to everyone I know!
Hallie, Working with you and Will was one of my great pleasures this year. Your intimate elopement was so very special... I'm so glad you were pleased! It was a lot of fun being a part of your special day!
Claudia did a wonderful job with our wedding, she wrote a beautiful unity candle ceremony! She is one of the kindest spirits I have ever met and you can tell joining people together in marriage is her passion in life
Thank you so much, Katelyn!! Your winter wedding ceremony was really special, and I was honored to be a part of your big day! Hooray! You did it!
Chaplain Claudia was very interested in creating an experience that was both unique and comfortable.
Nicole - Thanks for your nice words. Your & Calvin's wedding was a fabulous tribute to his service in the Marines and to your love and relationship! I has a great time being a part of legalizing your union. Congrats again!
Claudia was very professional and organized. She guided us through our specific vision for our ceremony, and we were very specific and picky. We highly recommend Claudia
Hi Jenn.... You were not picky.... just selective and knew exactly what you wanted! I'm so glad that your "epic" ceremony turned out to be all that you hoped it would be! You two deserve all the happiness the universe can give! Congrats again!
While looking for a non-denominational chaplain for our wedding we came across Claudia. She had excellent reviews and when we first met with her it was very evident why. Claudia truly loves what she does and enjoys creating the perfect ceremony. She offered us many different ideas, options, and things we could do with our ceremony that we never even thought of doing. She customized the most amazing, heartfelt, and personalized ceremony we could have ever dreamt of. Many of our guests said that it was the most beautiful ceremony they have ever witnessed. It is very evident that Claudia puts in a large amount of time to make the ceremony script perfect. She was very helpful with the rehearsal dinner. She could sense that I was very nervous about the weather on the wedding day and offered her grandmother's rosary. She uses her grandmother's rosary to help keep the rain away for the ceremony if there is ever a chance of rain. She told me to hang it from a branch on a tree outside and that it has never failed her. We had a few showers that morning while getting ready and right before the ceremony the skies cleared and we had a beautiful, sunny ceremony- how AMAZING! Claudia went above and beyond any expectations we had. Her presence is very calming and she ensures that you are not stressed and are able to be in the moment and enjoy the whole process. Claudia is an amazing person inside and out and we are honored to have her has our Chaplain for our wedding. We cant even begin to thank her enough for everything!!! Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for an unforgettable ceremony!
Desiree - Thank you for your kind words! Yes, your wedding was an amazing celebration of your love... thanks for allowing me to be a part of your special day!! The butterfly flitting around during your sunny ceremony is a memory that I will cherish forever! All the best to you both! Claudia
My first encounter with Claudia was at a funeral. I arrived late and only heard her for the last 5 minutes. I was amazed. I found I needed her services shortly after that for my mothers funeral. Again, she was amazing. I knew that following November when I got engaged, she was the one to perform the service. She is funny, caring, professional and most importantly she listens. She does everything she can to make your ceremony exactly what you want!
Wow, Teri.... I had forgotten the details about how you met me for the very first time... I'd say the universe had a hand in bringing us together, wouldn't you? Your wedding was filled with so much fun and joy... I'm thrilled that I got the chance to be a part of it!! Thanks for sharing...
If you’re looking for a wedding officiant than look no further, she’s here! From the moment my husband and I met Claudia we knew she was what I had been tirelessly looking for. Our venue did not have a wedding coordinator or someone to assist with ceremony specifics which was not a problem for her. Although she had never performed a ceremony at our venue before she took the time to familiarize herself with it and took initiative when necessary. Claudia put together an incredible ceremony with a mix of traditional and non traditional pieces that really expressed who we are as a couple and created a feeling of warmth and love during our ceremony. In my opinion, she went above and beyond and we cannot thank her enough. Book her and you won’t be disappointed!
Jillian & Daniel
Thanks for reviewing me, Jillian! I really enjoyed working with you and Daniel, and am happy to say that I'm booked to work again at your venue several times this year! All the best to you both!
Claudia was fantastic! She was incredibly easy to work with, matched the vibe that we were going for, and delivered an amazing, heartfelt and sincere ceremony. We received compliments from guests as well. We were lucky to have her!
Thanks for your review, James! Your wedding to Hillary was quintessentially "classy yet relaxed," and I'm so glad we met and connected so I could be a part of your big day!
It was a pleasure working on our wedding ceremony with Claudia. My husband and I immediately felt connected to her after we first met! We knew some of the elements we wanted to include, Claudia talked us through other ideas and elements, explaining what they were but never pushing up to include anything in particular. After our ceremony, many of our family and friends commented on how beautiful and personal it was, and how sincere and warm Claudia was. Thank you Claudia, for helping us create the type of ceremony we wanted! We would recommend Claudia as a wedding officiant to other couples in a heartbeat!
Imbi, Thank you so much for taking the time to review my work! I'm so glad the ceremony was exactly as you wanted it. Your love story was just so beautiful, and I enjoyed getting to know you and celebrating your love!
Claudia was a great officiant! She was very sweet and professional and made our day perfect!
Thanks, Lisa! Your & Roxy's close friends-and-family-only wedding was so very special... and reminded me why I love intimate celebrations like yours! Congrats again!
We are so happy we found Claudia! We spoke to numerous officiants and no one seemed special enough to be a part of our wedding day. But her warm and loving spirit is perfect for celebrating love. She allowed us to customize
our ceremony and gave us guidance along the way. Our ceremony felt very special as a result. We got so many compliments from our guests- some said it was the best ceremony they've ever been to!
Claudia is easy-going and very professional. It was a joy to have her on our team. There was threat of rain and on the eve of our wedding and Claudia loaned me her Grandmother's rosary beads to hang out my window (an old tradition to stave off wedding-day rain). The rosary beads worked because the rain held off just in time for our reception inside! We highly recommend Claudia:)
Kelsey - Thanks for the kind review, and I, too, am so happy the rain held off and allowed your celebration to be outside in nature as you envisioned!! You & Logan have the BEST families, and I really enjoyed being a part of both your planning process and your actual wedding!
Claudia was absolutely amazing. From the first meeting we had with her she made sure that my husband and I were comfortable and that we got everything we wanted.My husband and I knew we wanted a unique ceremony that combined our faiths in an interfaith ceremony and she did a wonderful job. She wrote our wedding ceremony and it was unique and was tailored to us. Everyone commented how wonderful our ceremony was. Claudia also provides you a copy of the ceremony so you always have it as a keepsake. She is highly recommended and is so passionate about all the ceremonies she puts together.
Sara, Thanks for your review... and for allowing me to celebrate your unique story! I has a lot of fun working with you and your fiance (now husband!). All the best to you both!
I am so glad that I picked Claudia to officiate our ceremony!! She is so nice and has such a positive energy. It's hard to explain, but I will try. She's very open and friendly, I could tell immediately that she's very good at public speaking. The way she speaks, her tone of voice, is energetic and happy. What we wanted, was a non-denominational ceremony that wasn't too long, and about our relationship. We met with her a couple times, she gave us lots of ideas and options. She helped us with email reminders and was really good with communication. We were slow to finalize our personal vows, but she gave us time. At the rehearsal, she was very thorough going through directions. I gave her the license and she brought it to the wedding, so I didn't have to worry about it. She mailed it to our town hall for us. She even sent us a physical copy of our ceremony, photocopy of the license and a cute note. The ceremony itself was perfect. I was nervous about writing my own vows, but she gave me a helpful guide for ideas. She proofread our vows to make sure they flowed and complimented each other. She used 2 quotes we picked and blended them well into the ceremony. I love the readings she added to it, it all fit together. The most important thing for me to mention, is that my ceremony was to be outside, but it started to storm the exact minute it was supposed to start. The ceremony was delayed half an hour, but we had to do it inside. The amazing thing about Claudia, was how she incorporated that into our ceremony without missing a beat. She had the sweetest things to say and add to it, about rain on your wedding day and even worked it into the quotes we picked. She just did it all right on the spot like that. It was perfect and everyone LOVED the ceremony. People keep telling me how much they loved Claudia and how she did a great job, that our ceremony was so touching and personal. I completely 100% agree! I totally recommend her!!
Jillian, I'm soooo happy to know that my work was a big part of making your day special. While the weather threw us a curve ball, we were able to celebrate your love and your vows in a very personal way! Thanks for your confidence in booking me!
Claudia was absolutely wonderful to work with. My husband and I felt at ease with her immediately. Claudia created a beautiful and personal ceremony for us that we truly loved. I actually had tears in my eyes the first time I read it! I had several guests approach me at the reception to comment on how wonderful the ceremony was. Thank you so much, Claudia!
Heather, It was a genuine pleasure getting to know you and your fiance (now husband!) and creating a ceremony that reflected your beautiful love! All the best to you both!
Claudia truly cared about what we wanted in our ceremony. She made our wedding day special. personal, and fun!
Karen, Thanks for your kind words! I'm glad that my "care" showed through and that you were pleased with my work!
Really enjoyed having Claudia with us on our marriage day. She had no problem directing us where to be and what to do when our minds were elsewhere during the hectic rehearsal and wedding day. Very Professional, very kind.
Alex, I'm glad you and Alyssa were happy with my work! Your relationship and engagement story were so much fun to get to know... I wish you both all the best!!
My wife and I met Claudia at a bridal show. She wasn't pushy like some vendors are at the bridal shows. And when we spoke to her we immediately realized that she was a great person-- not just for this job, but all-around. Claudia is an officiant, and then some! She is amazing. An absolute pleasure to be around, and so kind and funny. She even gave us genuine advice for what to ask from OTHER officiants if we decided not to go with her. When my wife and I turned the corner we both looked at each other and said, "YEP."
Claudia's price includes meetings, e-mails, a rough-draft script, an organized ceremony, and a final script (And other things).
She helped us customize our ceremony so that it was true to us as a couple. She had a long list of the "usual" parts of a ceremony that you can pick from, but she was also extremely receptive to new ideas that we introduced. And she had options for the wording for all of it. It was so helpful.
At our second meeting, she came with a blueprint of the ceremony and we went step-by-step to organize the day. If you wanted to move things around, she was totally okay with going with the flow of what WE wanted.
She also helped with vows. She had a few articles to read, and she was available for advice and guidance.
At our rehearsal dinner she organized everyone and coached everyone in their positions. At our ceremony, everything went well and she was truly the greatest. SO many guests went to get her business card afterwards, and so much of our families mentioned how amazing she was-- everyone loved her.
I would highly recommend her to anyone who asks. We are a queer couple, and she was very accepting. She is also non-denominational, so she can adapt to different spiritual preferences.
Kyle - The feelings are mutual!! I knew when you and your wife shared your love and engagement story with me, that this was going to be an epic, beautiful and creative wedding! Thanks for allowing me to be a part of your celebration!!
Claudia was amazing, helpful, and just all around wonderful. She made our day. It was easy, and she was very knowledgeable. She took care of everything, and thought of everything we didn't. And it didn't cost an arm and a leg! I would highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you Claudia!
