Helene was awesome! She was very flexible with the ceremony, but also had lots of helpful suggestions so that we had a good flow. She was very organized and made the ceremony writing process go so smoothly. She came to the rehearsal (no extra cost) and really helped it run smoothly. On the day of, she was a calming influence, knew exactly what was going on, and did a great job during the ceremony! We were lucky to have her!

I can't praise Helene our Officiant from Creative Vows enough. She was extremely professional, personal and experienced in her work. She took the time to go through everything in much detail, from wedding vows to other various ceremony tips and insights that I hadn't even thought about. She took the time to get to know us as a couple which made the actual day go utterly perfect! She was extremely quick to respond to any questions, allowed us to be creative in the ceremony when we wanted to be, and was happy to accommodate every detail of our vision. We had quite a decent sized wedding party (7 bridesmaids and 7 groomsmen) and she worked really well with the entire wedding party to make sure the rehearsal was useful for everyone and an efficient use of time which made the day of ceremony go absolutely flawlessly. She was able to conduct the ceremony with such grace and ease just like it was second nature to her which made everyone feel comfortable while ensuring we were all on the same page throughout. I would recommend Helene to any of my friends and family who need an Officiant as she is such a kind person who made our special day very sweet yet unforgettable! Thank you Helene from the both of us!

Helene was the best! She really worked with us on every aspect of our ceremony that we wanted. My now husband and I took great care to use the ceremony options she gave us and modified them into our own special unique service for our Wedding. Helene was great at adapting to our requests and the additional material we added in. She took care in understanding some of the personal touches and references we made in our ceremony (gaming terms and other geekish themes). This was great because while we had these references we received compliments on how well done it was - it wasn't campy or boring! (coming from most of our friends who actually hate weddings.)

She was also very helpful in the license process and took great care of making sure we had all the paperwork filled out properly as well as made sure it was sent off to the county registrar for us. We received our marriage certificate with certified copies with no problem.

We both wrote our own vows and she was fantastic at making sure we were both on the same page so that everything flowed well. I also loved her because she's got a colorful personality which really made us feel comfortable. For a non-traditional and non-religious ceremony, she was the perfect fit for us.

Helene was Awesome!! she made us feel very comfortable, and at ease with the whole process. We were apprehensive as to whether or not she would perform a same sex marriage as there was no mention of this on her Website, but she was great, it was no problem for her to do this for us. She was nothing but professional through out the whole process. we highly recommend her to anyone looking for an Officiant, Helene is who you should use, you will not be disappointed. Thank You, Thank You, your the best...

Helene worked well with us to customize our wedding ceremony.
She kept us on track, as we were working on a short time line and long distance.
Helene also made sure that our paperwork was filed properly. She also clarified some misinformation that we received. Our marrige license came sooner than we anticipated.
