    A wedding ceremony with a personal touch

    The wedding ceremony my wife and I had was very well thought out. Rev. Courtenay makes an effort to get to know her clients as much as possible through the planning process to cater to the couple as much as possible in creating their ceremony. We were very satisfied with the services offered throughout the entire process.

    Reverend Courtenay did an absolutely amazing job at creating the perfect ceremony for us! Not only did she make our ceremony deeply meaningful and customized to our life, she guided us through the whole process from beginning to end and anticipated our needs. She is extremely professional, very personable, quick to respond, and is amazing at creating the perfect day! Plus she was the only one that could calm the nerves of my groom before the ceremony started! We would recommend Rev. Courtaney to anyone and would not have changed a thing, all our guests were blown away with the ceremony!

    Rev. Courtenay Weinkauf did my wedding this past weekend and she was absolutely amazing! She was so helpful with planning the process from beginning to end, did a great job at our rehearsal dinner and made sure our ceremony went exactly as planned! She was very good at paying attention to detail, was quick to respond and impressed all our friends & family! I would highly recommend Firenze Ministries and especially Rev. Courtenay if your looking for dedicated, responsive and quality services! Thank you again for making our day even more special and perfect!!

    Rev. Courtenay was simply a joy to work with. She was kind and understanding. I would not of been able to pull me wedding together without her and her day of coordinator, Courtney. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful. I don't think it could have been any better.

    Rev. Courtenay Weinkauf was the perfect choice to officiate our wedding. She was very helpful working with us to create the ceremonial script to our liking. She was very professional and responsible pre-service, during and post. Her reading was wonderful and countless guests commented on the lovely ceremony, reading and exchange of vows. We honestly can not imagine having done our wedding without her. And we highly recommend her to any person(s) seeking an officiant to perform their wedding.

    I was planning a destination wedding for a client and needed an officiant on very short notice. I needed someone who was unique and would not provide the usual cookie cutter ceremony we've all seen a thousand times. I needed someone that would understand the couple, and be flexible enough to accommodate their wishes. Luckily, Reverend Courtenay was able to help! Not only was she helpful, but she wrote a custom sermon that blew the couple away! She went above and beyond to help in any possible way. I highly recommend her!

    Rev. Courtenay was the epitome of patience and understanding as we tried to piece together our ceremony. The actual planning and personalization of the handfasting, ceremony and vows was done with remarkable ease. For a life event that is ranked up there with buying a house, a new job, starting a family, or losing a loved one - as one of the most stressful life events anyone can go through - Rev. Courtenay makes the most important part of the day, the actual ceremony, the least stressful part of the entire day. No matter what type of ceremony you wish to have for your special day, you can't go wrong working with Firenze Wedding Ministries or Rev. Courtenay. Our day couldn't have been more lovely and we owe it to her patience and understanding!

    Are original jp cancelled on us a week before the wedding Courtenay came in and saved the day . She was very flexible and helpful even recommended places to get the licence and what we needed to do and bring. We had written are own vows and I was worried that I would forget the words, she was very reassuring and had me email her them just in case I stumble. The ceremony was beautiful and she did a great job of making it feel intament and heartfelt.

    Rev. Courtenay Weinkauf was our officiant for our wedding day 6/27/15. Although the weather was not on our side for our outdoor ceremony, her positive spirit and flexibility with what we needed that day was superb. Nothing but a professional. She was there every step of the way with us from our first meeting, until our wedding day. Always there via phone or email to answer any questions or to make time to meet with us. We were very happy with her services and HIGHLY recommend her for your special day!

    I was very pleased with Firenze Wedding Ministries. Reverend Courtenay Weinkauf was very helpful in planning our ceremony. She was very friendly and open-minded. She introduced the idea of a tree planting ceremony which we found to be very special and perfect for our rustic, outdoor wedding venue. All of our family and friends continue to tell us how much they loved the ceremony. We highly recommend Rev. Courtenay Weinkauf!!!

    I was very happy with Rev. Weinkauf. We live in Texas and were traveling to New York for Christmas vacation and she was able to not only make us feel confident in her but also meet with us a few days prior to the event to go through and answer any questions. I was extremely happy with my new year!

    We found Rev. Courtenay to be extremely helpful in planning our wedding day. Our main interest was having our family participate in the ceremony and Rev. Courtenay came up with several ideas that we implemented on our special day. The sand ceremony was beautiful and the grandchildren reciting readings was so touching and memorable. Rev. Courtenay was always professional and responsive during our contacts. She seemed like part of our family at the ceremony and reception and was a joy to work with. We highly recommend her services.

    Rev. Weinkauf was very open and accommodating. We had a medieval/Renaissance theme for our small family wedding. She preformed a hand-fasting as well as a ring ceremony for us adapting the service for our circumstances and beliefs. She even dressed up in period attire for us. We are very pleased.

    Rev. Courtenay Weinkauf was friendly, set us at ease. We didn't have a clue what we were looking for except we wanted everything simple, short and sweet!

    She went over and above what we expected, anyone would be lucky to have her. She also helped us with a glitch with the license at the town hall!

    Hi Jessica,

    Thanks so much for allowing me to share in your special day. I know it was hard that the DJ didn't have it all together and that the hall was hot. I hope that I was able to soothe you as much as possible in the light of these things, and that you enjoyed the decorations that my assistant and I helped with. It's so great to see two people so very much in love as the two of you!
