My husband and I weren't sure how to go about finding an officiant for our wedding since we couldn't find a friend or family member that was right for the job, nor are we affiliated with any churches at home. We did what anyone would do and went to reviews online and that is how we found Rachel. All her reviews were amazing and she had recent posts on her facebook so we figured what the heck. I felt in some way that we were sacrificing a little bit of something by choosing a person that we didn't know. That feeling went away as soon as she showed up for the rehearsal dinner. Rachel was truly amazing. The groomsmen were being rowdy and goofy and she completely commanded the situation, getting their attention authoritatively, but also with humor and tact. It really put my bridal nerves at ease. We ran through the ceremony twice and I felt like she gave us all the time we needed to get it. She called people by their first name and made the other ceremony participants also feel at ease. By our wedding day, hers was a much welcome face among the other family and friends. During a wedding you begin to learn which vendors are there for themselves and which are really there to be on YOUR team and to make the day about YOU. That was Rachel 100%. A few days before the wedding we told Rachel that we wanted our Great Dane to be the ring bearer. She was so excited! She treated our dog like family too! That really meant the world to us. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful. I wish now that my husband and I had planned it to be even longer :-)

Rachel was amazing. She made everything easy and stress free. She jumped right in made everyone comfortable. Rachel not only got our children involved, but even smoothly handled the chaos they created during the ceremony. :) She provided plenty of options so that My husband and I were able to put our ceremony together just how we wanted. She gave us great ideas and even though we had a small in home ceremony, she made us feel important. I was able to have the perfect wedding day and I give a lot of credit to her.

Rachel was AMAZING! She made our day everything that we could have dreamed. The ceremony was so seamless and stress free, and we could make it however we wanted it to be. During the ceremony she did a wonderful job speaking eloquently, clearly, and loud enough for everyone to hear without thinking she was yelling. We would not have wanted anyone else to perform our ceremony. I would recommend her to anyone. She was more than what we could have ever expected!

Rachel was a dream to work with, she made planning our non-traditional, non-religious ceremony a breeze. She was extremely flexible, even when we through some really off the wall ideas at her (quoting Princess Bride and marching out to the Imperial March). All of my guests loved the ceremony!

Rachel is one of the most empathetic people I have worked with so far. She was very receptive to our non-traditional theme and helped us design a ceremony that was in keeping with its tone. She was flexible with the changes we made to it and was fantastic at keeping us on track, even reminding us to finalize our personalized vows the week before the wedding.

The best example we can give of what kind of person Rachel is to work with has to do with our handfasting cord. The day before the wedding, during the rehearsal, we realized that no one had thought to get a cord for the handfasting. With the rest of the evening taken up by the rehearsal dinner, and Rachel unable to make the dinner, we turned to Rachel and asked if she could pick up a handfasting cord for us. Rachel asked a few questions about color, and then agreed to get one. The next day, she came to the wedding with two different beautiful cords for us to choose from. I could not give her a stronger recommendation as an officiant.

We really enjoyed having Rachel as our officiant. She seemed to really "get us" as a couple and the vows we designed with her couldn't have been more perfect!! My only complaint is that she put the wrong county on our non-official marriage certificate (just the one for us to keep so it's not a huge deal) and forgot to forward some paperwork for us. Neither of these things affected our wonderful ceremony or the fact that we are officially married so they're minimal!
