Christina was the perfect officiant
From our first live consult with Christina, Jan and I knew that we'd made the right choice for our wedding officiant. The attention to detail, getting to know us both individually and as a couple, the personalization, customizing the ceremony to our wishes, and... writing the most moving and beautiful ceremony one could ever imagine or hope for.... down to researching our music and incorporating meaningful lyrics. All of our guests commented on how wonderful the ceremony was. Jan and I would highly recommend Christina.Sent on 08/08/2019

Christina is phenomenal and professional. She takes the time to make the ceremony yours. I didn’t want super religious. I wanted it to be warm and fun and really show off who my husband and I are. Christina wrote our perfect ceremony. It was us on paper to be quite frank, we absolutely love her!!!Sent on 05/27/2019

Attentive and Humbling Narrator/Orator
She is prompt about her appointments and courteous all the same. Thoughtful and pretty insightful regarding her ceremony speeches in that she interprets the answers to your questions with pretty much 20/20 vision. Our ceremony speech certainly captured not just the two of us individually but was extremely humbling in telling us how lucky the two of us are together. She understands and really writes about and to you which beautifully ties the ceremony together kind of leaving a tranquil feeling. All the wedding day hooplah drifts away pretty quick. We are not people who entertain being at the center of attention and are rather quiet so she really made us comfortable and the whole thing as painless as possible. Her attentiveness is astounding. She truly captured us and set the tone for the rest of the day/night perfectly.Sent on 12/29/2018
Christina Turner Ward's reply:Matthew, thank you so very much for your kind and thoughtful words! It was a pleasure getting to know you and Christina and, as you know, my goal is to make the entire ceremony process easy and comfortable. Im so glad you both felt at ease and enjoyed your ceremony! All the best to you both!

Thank goodness that I came across Christina Ward's information - because she was an absolutely amazing officiant! Christina gave my husband and I each a set of questions about each other, and then she took those answers to create the story of us! Countless family members and friends raved about our ceremony, and that was because Christina added just the right amount of sentiment and comedy. I was very happy with how everything turned out, and would recommend Christina to anyone!! Thanks again :)Sent on 10/23/2018
Christina Turner Ward's reply:Thank you Krishna for your kind words! I so enjoyed working with you and Evan. A little rain couldn't stop your beautiful ceremony! All the best!

We could not have been happier with our decision to choose Christina as our wedding officiant. We wanted a personalized ceremony that brought in customs from two different religious/cultural backgrounds, that was still representative of us as a pair. A tall order, and Christina delivered with creativity and grace! Christina is highly organized, and garnered information about us from an in-depth questionnaire, as well as multiple meetings. She worked with us collaboratively, and made us feel like we had complete ownership over the ceremony while still leading us through the process. She also really knows her way around the marriage licence process and walked us through everything we needed to do step by step. Since our wedding, we've gotten many wonderful compliments about how fun and authentic our ceremony was. We highly recommend Christina to other couples looking for a personal touch on their wedding day.Sent on 08/20/2018
Christina Turner Ward's reply:Thank you Vanessa and Alex for your very kind words! I so enjoyed working with you to create the perfect ceremony for you both
Jessica · Married on 08/20/2017
Our original officiant bailed three days before our wedding due to a family emergency, and Christina saved the day! She was such a dream to work with. She responded promptly to all of our emails, and was so sweet to work with. We were given a few different ceremonies to chose from, and we worked together to edit it to fit us. Our wedding worked out seamlessly, and was exactly what I imagined. I highly recommend Christina!Sent on 09/26/2017
Christina Turner Ward's reply:Thank you Jessica! I was so happy I could help you and Jeff have the wedding ceremony you dreamed of. The wedding was amazing!
Lauren · Married on 07/01/2017
My husband and I cannot say enough about our experiences with Christina! Right from our initial meeting, she put us at ease and answered all of our questions. Christina took the time to get to know us and our ceremony truly reflected our love for one another. She was very timely and responsive to e-mails, getting back to us the very same day. Christina sent my husband and I questionnaires which we filled out separately and drafted a ceremony from our responses. We then added to and revised the ceremony to create our perfect ceremony! If you are looking for a wedding officiant who will work with you and take the time to personalize the perfect ceremony for you, Christina Turner Ward is the one!Sent on 08/01/2017
Christina Turner Ward's reply:Thank you for your kind words Lauren. It was a true pleasure working with you both.

Working with Christina was truly an amazing experience from start to finish! Christina was also the officiant for my sister’s wedding. After witnessing firsthand how professional she was and also hearing the great feedback from my sister I knew she was the person we wanted to work with. Christina had a very structured approach on how to communicate with us consistently and also was very detailed in explaining the process and what needed to happen at different points leading up to our wedding day. She completely made us feel comfortable through the whole process and everything turned out perfect! If you really want an officiant who is going to sit down with you and really look to personalize your ceremony you need to look no further as Christina will provide you with exactly that!
Christina Turner Ward's reply:Thank you so much Michael! It was just a true pleasure working with you and Nikki!
Nicole · Married on 06/03/2017
We absolutely loved working with Christina. We were apprehensive to have our ceremony performed by somebody we did not have a prior personal connection with, but she really takes the time to get to know you and to discover what is important to your relationship. The in-person meeting is invaluable and will let her get to know you and for you to understand her style better. We had many of our guests come up to us during cocktail hour to let us know how beautiful they thought the ceremony was. As much as it was the information we provided, Christina's writing and touches really bring everything to life in a touching way. We would recommend her in a heartbeat!Sent on 10/17/2017
Christina Turner Ward's reply:Thank you for your kind words Nicole! I so appreciate your review and I'm hoping that you and Christian have a wonderful Fall!

If I could give 6 stars for Christina I would in a heartbeat. My husband and I were beyond happy with the attention, dedication, professionalism and overall caring that she took in officiating our wedding. She had us fill out a questionnaire asking us about how we met, how we would describe our partner and other questions that helped her in creating our ceremony. The end result was a ceremony that was tasteful and beautiful. I had so many guests approach me and comment on the ceremony. They had each said how they had never been so moved during a wedding ceremony. If you are considering an officiant for your wedding know that you are in the most competent hands if you choose Christina. We couldn't imagine a more beautiful way to begin our lives together. Thank you so much Christina :)Sent on 10/08/2017

Christina exceeded our expectations and my husband and I would absolutely recommend her as a wedding officiant. Christina has such a warm, kind and genuine personality and this came through in all of our interactions with her and during our ceremony. She worked with us to create a personalized ceremony that reflected exactly what we were looking to achieve. It was even better than we imagined! Our ceremony was so personal, meaningful, warm and loving and reflected who we are as a couple and what we wanted to come through to our family and friends celebrating with us. In addition to her warm personality and having created a beautiful ceremony for us, she is also an excellent public speaker which added to having such a great ceremony. Our guests raved to us throughout our wedding about how beautiful and meaningful our ceremony was. We are so happy that we chose Christina as our wedding officiant. She was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process and she made the most important part of our day perfect!Sent on 11/17/2016

It truly meant a lot to us that Christina officiated our wedding. She took the time to get to know us and as a result the ceremony was perfect. We will always remember the kind words she said and how comfortable she made us feel on a day when we were already excited and anxious.Sent on 11/17/2016
Julianna · Married on 11/05/2016
We wanted a wedding ceremony that was special to us, and was not religious. Christina did an amazing job of accommodating all of that for us and adding in a special reading we picked from a book, as well as the breaking of the glass tradition. So many people commented on how lovely and soothing her voice was while reading the ceremony as well. She is such a pro and made the whole ceremony and marriage license process super easy for us. She even gave us a lovely keepsake copy of our ceremony after as well. I would recommend her to anyone, especially people looking for a non-religious ceremony and have no idea where to start!Sent on 12/03/2016
Kelly · Married on 10/15/2016
Christina wrote us a beautiful, personal, non religious ceremony. From our first meeting to our wedding day Christina was very responsive and available to answer all of our questions. She provided us with a beautiful copy of the vows we wrote along with a copy of our wedding ceremony. All of my guests commented on how beautiful our ceremony was. After the ceremony Christina even helped me bustle my dress because no one else could figure out how! I would highly recommend her service! Thank you!Sent on 12/05/2016
Holly · Married on 07/24/2016
Christina is the perfect choice if you are looking for a personal, spiritual, romantic ceremony. She met with us to get to know us and our love story before our wedding. We opted for a very intimate ceremony, with just us and our parents, but the beautiful words that Christina spoke made it seem like a grand event. We had our wedding at an abandoned train car which was not in the most ideal location, but Christina had no problem with trudging through an overgrown path on a hot day to perform our ceremony at a location that had special meaning to us. It was emotional, beautiful and surely memorable for all of us. I would recommend Christina to everyone I know who is looking for someone special to perform the most perfect wedding ceremony.Sent on 08/11/2016

Christina Ward is an absolute pleasure to deal with. She listened to everything we asked for in our Ceremony and made sure it was exactly as we wanted. She made us feel like we knew her forever and was extremely accommodating. Christina kept in contact with us for the entire time we were planning our wedding which made us feel very confident that the Ceremony would go smoothly. The Ceremony that we chose from her suggestions was lovely and added greatly to our day. The day of the wedding went beautifully and Christina really made our Ceremony special. We would definitely recommend working with Christina.Sent on 06/09/2016

Christina was wonderful! Since first meeting with her, she made us feel comfortable and at ease. She has a warm presence. Christina made sure we were happy the whole time.

We cannot thank Christina enough for such an amazing wedding ceremony!! Christina helped us create a ceremony that was simple, yet touching, personalized, and perfectly "us". All of our guests are still complementing us on how perfect the ceremony turned out. Christina helped us through the process of writing our own vows, and there was not a single dry eye in the crowd. We are so grateful that we have a copy of the ceremony to read again and again :) Christina is warm, articulate, and very organized. We highly recommend her for your ceremony! Thank you, Christina!!Sent on 09/13/2015

Christina just recently officiated our wedding in Hillsborough and we had the most wonderful experience. From the start, Christina was incredibly responsive and flexible. After our initial meeting, we immediately felt comfortable with Christina -- she's warm, friendly and truly took the time to get to know us and what we wanted from our ceremony. We really wanted something that reflected us as a couple -- we wanted it to be personal, low-key and just "us." She put together an absolutely beautiful ceremony -- we were thrilled with the final result and nearly every guest commented on how perfect it was; it was everything we hoped for, and then some. I would recommend Christina to any and every couple looking for an officiant -- she's fantastic to work with and truly takes the time to get to know her couples and deliver a ceremony that reflects their vision.Sent on 05/25/2015

My husband and I are so happy that we found Christina on WeddingWire. She was such a pleasure to work with. We clicked right away at our initial meeting. She took the time to listen to our quirky/nerdy requests and then followed up with a detailed questionnaire later on to really get to know us as a couple. From that she wrote the most beautiful and personal ceremony we had ever heard. She was game to collaborate with us and our DJ to ensure we timed our recessional music just perfectly with her Pronouncement, so we walked out to the most epic part of Star Wars end titles theme - it was one of the highlights of our night. So many friends and family have commented to us how uniquely personal our ceremony was - which has been so special to hear. We highly recommend her to every couple. Thank you Christina!Sent on 05/31/2015
