Perfect officiant for our wedding!
Rhonda was easy to work with and informative from the very beginning. At one point she was going to be away from her computer for a couple of days so she notified me in advance and followed up as soon as she returned. I couldnt have asked for anyone better.Sent on 11/21/2019

Choosing Rhonda to play such an important role in our wedding was one of the best decisions we made! The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and so romantic and Rhonda had a huge part in making that happen. She called about a week before the ceremony and went over every detail and explained everything so perfectly that once the ceremony came about we had no doubts on what was to come. Our ceremony was a fairytale and I am so thankful to her!Sent on 05/06/2019

Wet and wonderful ceremony!
Our wedding was in a park, under an oak tree. It turned out to be a torrential downpour. Rhonda was there! Early, prepared, and in good spirits! We were stressed because of the inclement weather, but Rhonda reassured us that she has the experience to perform the ceremony in any conditions, and also reminded us that it is considered good luck if it rains on your wedding day! The ceremony was performed beautifully! Additionally, our original photographer bailed at the last second because of the rain, but along with Rhonda was her daughter, a professional photographer who braved the rain and captured the moment!Sent on 04/24/2019
Magnolia Ceremonies's reply:Actually, I describe your wedding day as a downpour of love! Your day was beautifully surrounded by so much energy, laughter, and love. I enjoyed every moment and thank you for inviting me to officiate your ceremony. Arielle also loved being present as well, and states "rain brings such romantic photos." We will always remember the two of you. Thank you. Love, laughter, and ever after.

Best day ever!
We could not be happier with how our wedding turned out! Rhonda did such a wonderful job making everyone feel engaged from the moment the ceremony started. We contacted her for the first time about 2 months prior to the wedding and had several questions regarding details about the ceremony. She explained everything very well and told us that if we have any questions to contact her anytime throughout the process. We called her several times thereafter and was easy to get in touch with her. Everyone felt right at home during the ceremony, with her warm and welcoming persona. The ability to select a custom made script from start to finish is what made our wedding feel so personalized. We would highly recommend Magnolia Ceremonies for anyone looking for a unique way to express their wedding. Thank you so much Rhonda for making our wedding one we will never forget!Sent on 03/03/2019
Magnolia Ceremonies's reply:Thank you so much for your lovely Review! I certainly appreciate your kind words. Your wedding was WOW and I loved every moment. It was a pleasure to meet your loving families as well. Best of Wishes to both of you with an abundance of love and happiness ever after... True love lasts forever"

Rhonda officiated our wedding on 9/29/18 and she did a great job! She was amazing throughout the whole wedding planning process, so helpful and kind every step of the way. From the first moment I spoke with her on the phone I knew she would be the one to make our wedding ceremony special. Our guests all commented on how great the ceremony was because it was so personalized to us as a couple. She listened to what we wanted and turned our words and feelings into a beautiful ceremony we will remember forever. I would not hesitate at all to recommend her to any other couples searching for an officiant.Sent on 10/09/2018
Magnolia Ceremonies's reply:Thank you Katie and Ian for taking the time to write this lovely Review! Your wedding ceremony was certainly beautiful, especially with the special personalized touches that you chose to share with your loving family and friends. Thank you for the honor of having me to officiate your lovely ceremony! May you always have an abundance of love and happiness! And...love to your fur babies! Love Ever After!
Dawn · Married on 09/22/2018
Our Rock Star Wedding was 9/22/18 and Rhonda with Magnolia Ceremonies deserves 10 stars from us!
My ceremony was extremely unique with more music queues than most, and more mosquitoes than expected..
Rhonda's expertise in verbiage choices and her flexibility and patience with changes, is why our ceremony was a true reflection of us and our journey to the alter. She listened to my vision and created a final product that brought it to life!
Rhonda, is a professional above and beyond. I was astounded at her composure, when I realized we didn't have the roses for our parents. She never missed a beat and reworded that part on the spot. No one knew, as we went on to give hugs instead! Attack of the insects! As the rest of the wedding party were batting off mosquitoes - DURING THE CEREMONY! Rhonda never flinched. (AMAZING)!
There aren't enough words or expressions of thanks, I could give, that would truly show my appreciation.
I HIGHLY recommend Rhonda and Magnolia Ceremonies!Sent on 10/10/2018
Magnolia Ceremonies's reply:Thank you for your kind words Dawn! It was certainly a wedding that rocked! The music was fabulous! I was honored to officiate your wedding ceremony and will always remember your special day. The two of you radiate an abundance of love. May you have a lifetime of beautiful adventures together hand-in-hand. Love Ever After...

Victoria · Married on 08/17/2018
My husband and I are so happy we chose to go with Magnolia Ceremonies for our wedding. We had a very small ceremony and Rhonda brought so much intimacy and joy to the occasion. We wanted our closest family and friends, who had been with us during the 9 years we were together; through high-school, college, and graduate school, we wanted them to feel like they were part of our day. Magnolia Ceremonies was a major part of making everyone feel like they were part of it all. We were thrilled!Sent on 09/10/2018
Magnolia Ceremonies's reply:Victoria, thank you so much for your kind words. It was an honor to be chosen as your wedding officiant. I am so happy that after nine years the two of you have been united into the union of marriage! May you have an abundance of love and happiness for all the years to come. Vow to be present and curious. Love Ever After...

Hiring Rhonda as our wedding officiant was absolutely one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. We wanted a small intimate wedding and that is exactly how she made it. It was a special blessing to be able to have her write our sweet vows and have Ariel take professional pictures. I would recommend Magnolia Ceremonies to anyone! Thanks, Anita and Joseph Carson!!Sent on 12/05/2017

Connie · Married on 11/18/2017
If you want a beautiful, well thought out, and kindly crafted ceremony, look no further. Ms. Rhonda has been a huge help and gave us a memorable and gorgeous ceremony that my husband and I will always cherish forever. I booked her a year and a half in advance, and she always kept in touch and updated us as necessary.Sent on 12/19/2017
I would not hesitate to book her. Officiating weddings is Ms. Rhonda's passion, and when you hire someone that does something that they love, you get something beautiful from it. Not only did she officiate our wedding, but she also officiated my sister-in-law's elopement. To all the couples that I know that are getting engaged, I have highly recommended her to them.
Ms. Rhonda is the best, and I promise you will be not be disappointed!
Magnolia Ceremonies's reply:Thank you Connie for such a beautiful Review. Your kind words are very much appreciated and makes me really happy. It was absolutely a pleasure and an honor to officiate your lovely wedding ceremony! Wishing you all the best in your union of marriage! #foreverinlove

My husband and I got married this past Saturday. We are both hearing impaired and we feel so blessed to have Rhonda as part of our wedding. We are so glad that we picked her as our officiant. We couldn't ask for a better officiant than Rhonda. My guests really adored and admired her on how wonderful she was during the ceremony. She was very gracious. The ceremony she wrote for us was beautiful, thoughtful and inspiring. Rhonda was a very sweet person with calm, positive and warm personality that my husband and I, as well as my guests loved being around. I received excellent comments about her from my guests. I highly recommend her for your wedding, I guarantee you. You are going to love her at the moment you meet her. I feel so blessed to have her as part of our lives. She is AMAZING! From the moment we met her, we knew that she is the best for our wedding, How coincidence that I choose Magnolia Ceremonies. My wedding theme is Southern Magnolia Wedding. I thank God for having her as our officiant. God bless her! It was such a beautiful sunset wedding we had with the best officiant presiding our marriage vows. You are going to love her. We love her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We really appreciate all of her help to make our special day the best ever day of our Southern Magnolia Wedding!!!!!

Adriana · Married on 09/30/2017
Rhonda was amazing! What she wrote was perfect for our little ceremony, and she really listens to what you would prefer while making suggestions if you're completely lost. She walked us through everything before, during, and after the ceremony and even comforted me when I was choking back tears at the altar. If you need someone who's going to be patient, kind, and professional while you're figuring all this out, Rhonda is your woman!Sent on 10/08/2017

Magnolia Ceremonies made our special day fantastic. Prior to our wedding day Rhonda was very helpful answering every one of our questions and customized our ceremony to fit us perfectly. The flow of the ceremony went extremely well. Rhonda was extremely professional throughout with clear and sharp wording making our following along come with ease. After the ceremony multiple guests stated over and over how they loved our officiant and how personal the message was geared towards our family and the life we share together. We were extremely happy and satisfied with Rhonda / Magnolia Ceremonies and we recommend this officiant for your special day.Sent on 03/29/2017
