Incredibly kind and always professional. She listened to our thoughts and preferences. Our vows were tailored to us, as was the brief speech beforehand. She even integrated our love of LEGOs into the brief speech--a touch that earned many smiles and compliments from our guests.

Crystal was able to deliver a perfect ceremony on our wedding day. Her selection of readings for non-denominational ceremonies was really broad and we were able to find one easily that best suite our relationship and the message we wanted to say in front of our friends and family. She was very easy to work with and very professional.

Crystal did an amazing job creating a ceremony that was a perfect representation of my husband and I. We gave her a lot of different elements to try and incorporate and she made them all work. If there was something we wanted to change at any point, she made it happen. The fact that she also dressed up to match our Steampunk theme was the "icing on the cake". Very glad we asked Crystal to officiate for our wedding!

I called Crystal a week before my wedding in a panic because there was an emergency with my original officiant and I needed to find someone new in a hurry. Crystal was so helpful and I am so grateful that she was able to take the place of my original officiant. She helped us to revise our original ceremony wording to better fit us and was so helpful. She really took a lot of stress off of our shoulders and helped us to have a beautiful ceremony!

Crystal was an absolute dream to work with. She is very friendly, and down to earth. One very important factor in our choosing of an officiant was that we wanted someone that would make it a non-religious experience. Crystal prided herself on making the wedding about US, not about her own views. Every aspect of choosing a speech, options with vows, sand ceremonies, celtic knot tying etc was fun! She was very professional when working with the photographer, when working with losing daylight. She was very professional when speaking to fellow wedding guests, and very professional during our ceremony. Crystal had very reasonable rates for her services. She was the first we contacted, and the last, because we were so impressed! I will definitely be passing her name along to my friends who are planning weddings. Such a great experience!

Reverend Crystal was so nice when we first met with her and she had a beautiful collection of ceremony wording and outlines to choose from. She was patient and thorough with the best pricing aftr researching several officiants. She color coordinated with the bridal colors which was neat and she made us feel very comfortable during the ceremony. Thank you for everything we will refer you in the future! -Cierra & Derek 7-7-2011

As my wife ahd I had a very non traditional wedding we knew that we would have to have an officiant who could think outside of the mundane.
Crystal not only understood what we were going for she had the clarity to help before we needed it.
I have nothing but praise for her.

Rev Crystal was amazing from the first time we interviewed her (and hired her on the spot, I should mention!) until we signed the marriage license after our ceremony, and she even sent us a little follow-up e-mail that was greatly appreciated. She was supportive, helpful, attentive to our needs and how we wanted the ceremony to flow, and calming for us by leading us through and helping us when needed.

I would recommend her to anyone and everyone - you will be so glad to have her as a part of your special day!

Crystal was able to marry us with very short notice. She was prompt and always responded to any questions quickly. She was able to suggest the perfect place for our wedding. She respected our wishes and did not impose any limitations on our requests.
Crystal's price was extremely resonable.
We could not have asked for a better officiant for our wedding and want to personally thank her for all her help in making our wedding happy and memorable.

Crystal worked with us on designing a ceremony that fit us as a couple. She coached us in the areas we were not sure on, and worked with us around the things we were sure about. Our ceremony would not have been as successful without her, and our pre-wedding meetings helped us think about things that were not even on our radar that made all the difference.

Crystal was absolutely wonderful and really helped to make our wedding day special. She always stopped to make sure I was doing okay and to make sure there wasn't anything I was nervous about. She was great at calming our nerves and making us feel relaxed. Crystal checked in with me a few times before the wedding by email to ask if things were going okay, if I needed opinions and/or advice on something for the wedding. She color coordinated her attire to the colors of my bridal party and I thought that was really thoughtful. She was professional, caring and just really did a marvelous job.

Crystal did an amazing job officiating our ceremony. We were looking for an officiant that was comfortable with our non-religious ceremony requests, and it was actually much harder to find someone than I thought it would be. She was very flexible with our needs and easy to work with. She provided us with a lot of options for our vows and made suggestions based on the things we liked and didn't like about each one. The critiques I do have are very minimal and should be taken with a grain of salt. Crystal can sometimes look unprofessional, her clothing it too large for her small frame and are usually wrinkled. We are a casual couple and this didn't bother us very much but if you are looking for someone who appears very professional this is just a heads up. She did look very nice on the wedding day though. She is also very outspoken and can come off as abrasive in conversation. As I said, we are not religious and so my fiance said something like "G Damn it" and was quickly reprimanded by Crystal, we didn't really appreciate that.
