Everyone should know Loretta even if she doesn’t officiate your wedding. She is an incredible woman and so loving and kind. She made our ceremony so personalized and made us feel like a family member was the one officiating our wedding. She was prompt and made the process so easy for us. I would highly recommend her!

Loretta was very professional and at the same time sounded completely sincere while officiating our ceremony. I was very picky about hiring an officiant, since I needed someone who could be trusted to honor my wishes for a completely religion-free ceremony. She did a great job of letting us know what to expect during the ceremony and worked with us to craft a beautiful presentation. She also took care of rounding up our witnesses after the ceremony so that we could get started on our photos, which was very helpful. I would definitely recommend her services!

Loretta was an absolute pleasure to have a part of our wedding day. We planned our wedding from Sydney, Australia and were married at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse in May 2017. Loretta organised a 1 hour phone call 8 months prior to obtain more information about us and used it at the wedding (ensuring she incorporated loved ones who couldn't join us). She constructed a beautiful script which she sent us 2 weeks before the wedding. Loretta came to the rehearsal the day before and professionally informed our bridal party where they needed to be at all times.
Loretta's work does not stop after the wedding, she also had no issue in turning in our marriage license and made the process super seamless.
Thank you very much Loretta for all your help and we hope you enjoyed the Tim Tams! =)

We can't say enough nice things about Loretta, she was truly a pleasure to work with and helped to make our ceremony better than we could have imagined. To start, we had a lovely phone conversation where Loretta learned more about us as a couple and we discussed ideas for the ceremony outline. We planned an intimate ceremony for family at the Santa Barbara Courthouse and lucky for us Loretta is very knowledgable about this location - she even sent us photographs of the best areas in advance so that we could decide exactly where on the grounds we'd like to have the ceremony and take pictures. Next, she sent us a ceremony outline based on our requests and was really accommodating to make any minor revisions we had. On the big day, she was incredibly kind (despite some minor hiccups including our late arrival) and warm. Her delivery could not have been more exquisite, even with the challenge of an E.E. Cummings poem included as a reading. Of course we were beyond thrilled, but even family members remarked that it was one of the most beautiful ceremonies they'd ever witnessed. We can't thank Loretta enough for her involvement in making our day incredibly special!

We are so grateful to have booked Loretta to be the officiant for our wedding. She is genuine and has an amazing spirit. She strived to get to know us as a couple in order to create a ceremony that is personal and reflects our relationship. I feel very blessed to have Loretta officiate our wedding.

Loretta was wonderful to work with! After a brief phone consultation (we planned an out of state wedding) she wrote a beautiful ceremony script that we really liked. And she was flexible in making small changes that we requested.
But she really saved the day before the ceremony even started. Our two year old was upset because he didn't have a box to hold like his older brother. Loretta convinced our little guy that he had a very important job for the ceremony, he was to hold a blue flower and he held onto that flower like it was the most important thing in the world. Once that crisis was averted, the ceremony went on without a hitch.
Loretta's delivery was spot on, she spoke clearly and deliberately so everyone could understand. We were very happy with her services.

We were so happy Loretta Redd was our officiant. She is very knowledge about all the different options and nuances for wedding ceremonies. Who knew there were so many! She is friendly and flexible, a delight to collaborate with. She started the process by interviewing us and worked with us every step of the way to tailor the perfect wedding for our needs. Thanks, Loretta!
