    Denise was AWESOME!! We couldn't have asked for a better person to officiate our wedding. She was enthusiastic, friendly, and so easy to work with! I just happened to stumble across her service on the internet and I'm so glad I did. I DEFINITELY recommend her.

    We absolutely loved Denise! From the moment that we met her until our final moments together at our wedding she was amazing! She has such a calming presence and is so much fun to be around. My husband and I had a less traditional wedding than most, and Denise rolled with our desires and silliness. My family also adored Denise and continue to talk about how great she did and how friendly she was! Denise made everything about our ceremony so easy for us, including giving us ample examples of ceremony blessings, vows, etc. She incorporated all of our nuances and styles perfectly and made our ceremony unforgettable! If I had this decision to make over again I would choose Denise 100 times out of 100!

    Denise made our wedding event very memorable. She rolled with the punches through all the chaos and was a calming presence and a source of comfort. The type of qualities possessed by a professional and veteran of the business. Thank you so much Denise for all your help.

    Denise was a beautiful officiant who made our big day so heartfelt, spiritual and special! We felt from the moment we met her that she had always been a part of our family! Communication was excellent right from the start of the planning process and Denise was there to help provide advice and support in assisting us to design the perfect ceremony, just for us. Including personal messages and our our own statements of love for each other was not an issue and we could not have been happier with the way the ceremony turned out. Denise braved some cold and windy weather conditions with us on the day, but we all left with very full warm hearts. Couldn't recommend her any higher, amazing lady who loves what she does. Thanks for making our day complete. Steve and Sally. x

    Denise did a simply marvelous job officiating our wedding ceremony. She was so happy and enthusiastic and had the guests so engaged the whole time. We communitcated many times prior to the wedding and had the chance to meet in person prior, giving us the chance to go over everyt tiny detail. She answered every question I had and gave me the reasurance every bride is looking for. We were more then confident that Denis was a pefect choice. Our guests had nothing but great things to say about her. And she even mailed in our wedding license for us! She is wonerful and we would reccomed her to anyone! Can't wait to have her officiate our vow renewals down the road!

    Denise was our officiant for our wedding and I seriously could not be happier with the flow of our ceremony. From the first meeting with Denise, the warmth of her as a person, we knew we were in the right hands. Being completely clueless as what is involved in a ceremony, we discovered that it was really not that complicated as Denise was there with great suggestions, she provided examples to find inspiration from and listened very well to what we were looking for. She took our ideas and made the perfect ceremony for my husband and I. I can not sing her praises more!! Thank you so much Denise, I don't think I could give a higher recommendation.

    Denise was our officiant this past weekend in Carmel. Not only was she prompt, professional, helpful and knowledgeable, but she was helped us put together a very personal, heart felt and beautiful ceremony along with inspiring us to write our own personal vows to share during the ceremony. She was so kind, warm, encouraging, and enthusiastic during and before the ceremony, she made us feel like we were family and we felt like she was in our as well! I would highly recommend using her for your wedding! She was a delight and we couldn't be happier we chose her! :) thanks again, Denise! Love, Erin and Brady

    Denise was absoulutely wonderful! From the first conversation I had with her I knew she was perfect, warm, and would make our day special. The way that she talks is very warm and loving, like she was an aunt or family member, she made the whole exeperience fun and easy. She was more than happy to help with writing and people have commented how personal and sweet our vows were. I would recommend Denise to everyone! Thank you Denise for making our big day that much more special :)

    Denise has a great combination of professionalism and warmth in the services she offers. She was very helpful in helping us complete our vows and preparing for the wedding. We had run out of time and needed some extra ideas for performing a sand ceremony. Denise provided some examples and offered advice in the order of events for the wedding. We had left some blanks in the ceremony and she very professionally filled them in with a style that totally suited us and our ceremony. She handled all the little details that we missed, did not know about or just didn’t have time to do on the wedding day. Little things like tracking down the best man and maid of honor to have the license signed and then sending in all the paper work make all the difference when your wedding day is rushing by.

    There is something about Denise that made us feel very comfortable and at home with her the first time we met her. She is very warm and friendly, and injects just the right amount of humor into everything. Having not been to many weddings ourselves, we also found it very helpful when she let us know of all the legal things we needed to take care of prior to and after the wedding. Denise also provided us with scores of passages and ceremony ideas that we could mix and match to our pleasure, and with her help we were able to craft a ceremony that we felt represented us pretty well. Only partway through the wedding rehearsal, one of our groomsmen told us that he felt we made the right decision in selecting our officiant. A couple of weeks after the wedding now, we still feel the same way.

    Denise married us 20 years ago. We just watched our video with our two sons. Thank you Denise for helping us make such a beautiful ceremony that is still so special and meaningful to us two decades later.

    We were so glad to have Denise as our officiant! It was important to us to have a non-religious ceremony and Denise embraced our viewpoint. We were able to write our own ceremony using pieces of the samples she provided and we received excellent feedback from her throughout the process. She is warm, calming, and put in the extra effort to make our ceremony heartfelt and beautiful. There wasn't a dry eye present! One star deduction on flexibility. When discussing the rehearsal time, Denise mentioned that if we wanted her present for the rehearsal that it had to be at a specific time. Seemed to us that the officiant was an important part of the rehearsal, so we had to go with the only time she was available which made it very difficult for us and the rest of the bridal party.

    Denise was amazing. Great attitude, amazing personality, great nature, and joy for the celebration of love. Overall we are very pleased, she presented us with plenty of options and we had fun picking out our vows together. We were planning our wedding in a rush and this was no problem for her, our only regret is not getting to know her more beforehand.

    Denise was so wonderful to work with. She has such a warm personality, and really wanted to help us personalize our wedding ceremony. We wanted a non-denominational ceremony, and she was able to provide us with lots of different wording ideas. We picked bits and pieces and put them together, and she filled in the gaps. We planned a destination wedding, but we were able to meet with her once during the planning stages when we visited California. But she made the planning very easy and was open to lots of back-and-forth in editing the ceremony wording. She also has a very calming presence and truly seems to enjoy what she does. It was so special to have a wedding ceremony tailored to our relationship and what we wish for in our marriage. I really am glad we found Denise!
