Carmen was amazing! My husband, Dennis and I LOVED working with her. We hired her to help us plan our wedding and also to officiate our wedding. Her selection of invitations were good so we ordered some as well as wedding programs she helped us with wording. Half way through planning we decided to book our honeymoon through her company and she had made some really great destination suggestions and we ended up going to Puerto Rico. If you want the best hire Carmen. Great planner AND great officiant.

Carmen wrote the most beautiful ceremony. She listened to what we wanted and offered ideas for the this we didn't know. She is very professional and she will make your ceremony memorable. She is also great and directing things as she is a wedding planner too. We are so happy we used her for our wedding. Couldn't be happier!

We hired Carmen Hocking to officiate our wedding. She was easy to work with and had great ideas to incorporate into our ceremony. Very knowledgeable, presented us with options we had not really thought about. Our families really liked her too. We recommend her to all wedding couples looking for an easy going and fun officiant. We liked her the best of all our wedding vendors.

Call Carmen to set up an appointment as soon as you are engaged! She will give you a lot of great information and fun ideas to make your wedding the best wedding you could ever imagine. We hired her at the first meeting. So happy we did. She knows everything wedding related! We hired her for wedding planning to begin with then also hired her to officiate our wedding. We also used her services for invitations and to plan our honeymoon. She found us a great deal on an all inclusive resort. We will definitely be going back. We were happy with all of our wedding vendors but hiring Carmen was our best decision. Definitely worth every dime.

Carmen was more than just our officiant she was our life raft when we were drounding. Marring a marine is difficult enough, but having to change your wedding date, time and location time to fit his leave schedule was a nightmare. Thankfully, Carmen was there every step of the way! She gave us two beautiful ceremonies; one as a more privet affair for just me and my husband, and the other to share with all our Friends and Family. My husband and I can't think her enough for all the time, planing, preparation, understanding, and accommodation she provided us with our ever-changing date and venue. Our wedding turned out far better than we ever imagined and in a large part that is all thanks to Carmen for her gidence and her breathtaking ceremony! I have already referred her to a few of my friends who just got engaged and are planning coming nuptials!????

Fantastic service!! Officiant was available with overnight notice, and travelled some 60 miles to the venue.

She did much more than simply officiate. She gave us a great deal of guidance, and graciously spent time with the bridesmaids and groomsmen to explain what to do when, how to walk, where to stand, and offered a great deal of insight that added an extra element of cohesion and structure. Awesome.

Officiation was lovely. She delivered an impassioned oratory, that was specifically and individually tailored, and whose timeless sentiment resonated in my heart.

Fan. Tastic.

This awesome and fantastic lady saved my wedding day. Not only did she contact me one day before my big day and tell me some very important information about my marriage license, after I made a last minute reaching out post for an officiant . She also answered her phone on the morning of my wedding, when I still had no officiant for my big day, She agreed to be apart off my ceremony and helped everyone throughout the ceremony. She is very well versed and helpful in all aspects of the wedding day. She even had several talks and communication with each and everyone of my grooms men and most of my bride maids and gave my big day the final touch it needed. If you are ever looking for an officiant, Carmen is the one to choose.
