    Brooke was fantastic!

    Brooke was absolutely fantastic! She went above and beyond what I had imagined perfect could be! She arrived early to meet with my friends and family, printed our vows and paperwork neatly, and even helped me through my wedding day jitters. Her words resonated through the venue and truly made our day one of a kind! I highly suggest Brooke and give her 5 out of 5 on all categories.

    Brooke is wonderful! We had a vision for an intimate ceremony that would be simple yet perfect for us. We were very last minute with contacting officiants but she responded right away and was very supportive and came to us. We set up what we wanted visually and when she showed up she made us feel very comfortable and has the personality that just meshed with us and who we had there. On top of making us feel comfortable she performed a ceremony that was just amazing. We had no idea what she was going to be saying but it ended up being so perfect and special. So highly impressed we would recommend her to any and everyone.

    Brooke was a fabulous officiant for my wedding! The ceremony she wrote for my wife and I was beautiful and felt very personal and authentic. All our guests thought she was great, and she was very helpful in having the ceremony go off without any issues. Definitely recommended!

    Brooke was incredible. Flexible and accommodating as I only gave 2 days notice. With just a few questions asked Brooke had the experience to create the most beautiful and fitting vows for our wedding which really resonated with us. Thank you for being part of our perfect day!

    If you haven't already booked an officiant, Brooke Bakogeorge is who you want! We're so lucky we found her. We were getting down to the wire and needed to book an officiant ASAP. I was looking on weddingwire.com and came across Brooke and from the moment I met her, I knew she was the right pick for us.

    Brooke's communication through out the whole planning process was outstanding. If ever I emailed/called/texted Brooke, she responded within 30 minutes. She answered all of our questions and made the whole process easy! We were able to relax and enjoy the wedding because we knew we were in good hands. When picking/deciding on vows, Brooke is flexible and extremely helpful! She can put together just about anything that fits for you and your fiance. We received so many compliments on Brooke. She made our ceremony everything we hoped for and more.

    We highly recommend using Brooke for your officiant!! Book with her NOW! :)

    Thank you Brooke for making our ceremony perfect! <3

    Brooke was wonderful. She was very interested in what we had to say and took all of our ideas and created a beautiful ceremony. On the day of the wedding, she was a great help in getting everyone organized. I would highly recommend Brooke for your wedding. Ours couldn't have been better.

    Brooke was awesome, very professional and easy to work with. She did everything for us that we asked for and she is cheap compared to the others that we looked into.
    She shows up early and dressed beautifully with a smile and a great personality! Thank you so much for a beautiful ceremony, everyone loved it and thought it was just perfect!

    Great officiant! She is very professional, responds to your emails, easy to communicate with. For this wedding, she arrived on time, made sure she made contact with me (coordinator) and the sound guy and even helped guide guests to their seats. Will definitely recommend her!

    Brooke was so easy to work with from start to finish. She met us close to our home for our get to know each other session. We clicked with her down to earth style and good sense of humor. She sent us a Copy of the vows to review and edit several weeks prior. We were impressed with the personal things she incorporated even though only meeting us one time. She integrated a few things we asked for as well, like talking about our dog, without batting an eye. Brooke showed up early at our wedding and made sure any questions were answered since we didn't have her come to the rehearsal. Her officiating of the ceremony was lovely and had just the right amount of humor built in. Brooke helped make our day extra special and seemed more like a long time friend than someone we've only known a few months. Some of our friends and family commented it was the most beautiful wedding ever and Brooke definitely was part of that. Thank you Brooke!

    Brooke is amazing!!! I know the trend is to have a friend or family member be the officiant, and we were initially planning on that too, partly because it felt more personal and it’s free . However, Brooke spent time with us and wrote such a beautiful ceremony that if felt personal, and she’s so wonderful that it felt like she was part of our family. She’s also very professional and knows exactly what to do during the processional, hand off, ceremony and recessional. There are so many little details that I wouldn’t have thought of and so many things I wouldn’t have known if it wasn’t for Brooke. It was so helpful having her at the rehearsal. She even traveled to Blaine for our rehearsal on Friday and stayed through our late ceremony on Saturday! For our vows, she had them all printed on pretty cards and ready to go for us at the ceremony. She’s very prompt and was on top of the marriage license! She explained that process to us and got it in right away. I just can’t say enough good things about her! I feel like we overpaid for so many things in the wedding, but definitely not Brooke. She’s a great value and worth every penny! We are so happy we chose her to officiate our wedding. The ceremony could not have been better – thanks to Brooke!

    And I don’t write reviews, so know that she really is that good! You will love her!

    We couldn't have asked for a better officiant. Brooke was enthusiastic, kind, and full of cheer and humor, yet treated our ceremony with respect, poise and clearly took our actions seriously. When we first met, she asked us many questions about what marriage meant to us and why we were eager to share our lives together to ensure she created a ceremony that reflected out personalities, beliefs and priorities. The finaly ceremony was so us and couldn't have been more perfect. She was wonderful and we were so happy to have her as part of our big day. Thanks Brooke!

    The pre-event meeting during which Brooke went over a number of questions and then followed up by providing sample vows and readins was very helpful. We edited the ceremony content several times and Brooke was always ready to incorporate them without delay.

    Brook was an amazing wedding officient. We met up with her about 2 months prior to the wedding at a Starbucks and even though we were late she was so kind and funny! We were only there for about a half hour and she asked us series of questions about are family,lifestyle and relationship and from that she wrote such beautiful vows the whole ceremony that she wrote was amazing she added a poem and prayer and we got married at a winery so she also incorporated that as well. We had her come to reversal which was really worth it because we had no idea what we were doing and she really helped us get organized. The day of the ceremony was perfect she did such a great job she has beautiful speaking voice and made us all stay nice and calm even though it was pouring down rain!! She was perfect I couldn't of had anyone better!

    Brooke from Marriage Mate was very accommodating when initially meeting with my fiance and I to begin the process of contracting an officiate. She also discussed and provided us many different vow structures and ways to include my fiance's children into the ceremony vows. Our family and friends (as well we) were VERY impressed with Brooke's ceremony choices, professionalism, and friendliness. We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND her to anyone getting married.

    Brooke is absolutely wonderful! She just did a wedding for us in the end of June. She gave us many options to choose from, including letting us ad our own "touch" to the ceremony. Brooke's website is very useful... there are many different ceremonies to choose from and you can even pay with Paypal, just makes a bride's hectic life a little easier!

    I am soooo happy that we chose Brooke!! She is truly amazing. Funny and serious at all the right moments, she was just what we were looking for in an officiant. She made everything go so very smoothly and made people pay attention when they need a bit of organizing. We cannot thank her enough!!!!

    We never met before our ceremony and The Marriage Mate made it seem seamless. She did a wonderful job at our ceremony. She kept it short, and made adjustments to our ceremony based on what our values were instead of traditional ones. I strongly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an officiant. Thank you Brooke!
