Hello, I am Victoria O Milne, the NORTHEAST'S ONLY FULL-SERVICE CUSTOM WEDDING MINISTER/CHAPLAIN. Each wedding ceremony I provide is completely written specifically for each couple.

My couples never have to research on their own or on-line for readings or elements that everyone else will see....I do it all from planning, to wedding day detailing, to creating personalized vows just for them. My couples love finding their special romantic ONE-OF-A-KIND WEDDING VOWs left in their honeymoon suite to end their perfect day!

Each ceremony is 100% written for each couple to reflect their love, passion, family, faith, traditions and more.

I create and provide meaningful READINGS, UNIQUE UNITY ELEMENTS, PERSONALIZED VOWS which can't be found anywhere else.

My services are DISTINCT and UNIQUE and my satisfied couples love to offer references and wedding wisdom. I am professionally well known in the community for my work as a chaplain and Master's level counselor. My services include INTERFAITH/SPIRITUAL services, CUSTOM LIFE CELEBRATIONS and CATHOLIC CHAPLAIN services. Read less

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Agnostic, Baha'i Faith, Buddhist, Christian (no denomination), Christian - Anglican, Christian - Baptist, Christian - Catholic, Christian - Episcopalian, Christian - Lutheran, Christian - Methodist, Christian - Mormon, Christian - Orthodox, Christian - Presbyterian, Christian - Quaker, Hindu, Islam, Jainism, Jewish, Muslim, Shinto, Sikhism, Taoist
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Absolutely, each ceremony is COMPLETELY WRITTEN FOR EACH COUPLE!
 The ceremony has to have meaning and be all about my bride and groom.
 I am also available to provide Catholic Prayers, as a Catholic Chaplain or Hebrew prayers, as trained by my seminary leader and Rabbi or I can provide many of the other extensive faith rituals and prayers I have studied.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
I do so many different ceremonies for people of different backgrounds. I have worn traditional attire and cultural attire depending on the desires of the couple. My couples appreciate that I wear attire that coordinates with their color scheme for the day.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
The words used for the ceremony are written for the couple. The bride and groom and guests most often comment on how tailored and PERFECT the ceremony was.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
I offer a special service to my couples that no other officiant offers, personalized wedding vows, created from love letters they write to each other.
 After the ceremony I deliver the love letters to their hotel and put them on their pillow for their first gift to each other on their honeymoon night. I love to spoil my couples.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
Using the information the couple gives me I research and/or create one of a kind readings for my couples. Sometimes they reflect their passions, their friendship, their traditions and histories.
How long are your ceremonies?
My couples have final say, when it comes to deciding what will be included in their ceremonies. Since the wedding is the ceremony, my ceremonies are created to be meaningful and comfortable for my couples.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
I am fully qualified to offer counseling to couples, since I work in the local community as a Catholic and All Faiths chaplain and I also possess a Master's Degree in counseling. However, most couples come to me prepared to marry. They do love a self reflection exercise that I give them to do independently.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
I love to have my couples feel comfortable, accompanied and supported through the entire process - so rehearsals most often are a part of my services. I have established a wonderful rapport with most of the venue representatives and so we work together to cater to our couples' desires.
Do you supply a sound system?
No

We are new to Schenectady, relocating from downstate in January 2014. We knew how we wanted our wedding to be but we did not know how to find someone who would make it the way we wanted. We got a list of officiants from City Hall and Victoria was one of the first ones we called. It was clear from our first telephone conversation that Victoria was everything we wanted. We wanted a civil ceremony with no religious references. Victoria was accepting of that.
Victoria and Nick performed our wedding ceremony on June 28, 2014. The ceremony was customized to us and it captured our love story and devotion to each other as if they knew us for many years. They spent time with us to get to know us and what we mean to each other. It was clearly represented in the ceremony. It was everything we wanted it to be. They had our guests listening closely giving a few chuckles appropriately.
Victoria performed a wedding prior to ours not too far away. She made a point to be at ours also and she and her husband performed our ceremony together. We were married in the Schenectady Central Park Rose Garden and the weather and ceremony was perfect. We feel we are blessed to have found Victoria so easily. She and Nick are the best!

Our wedding ceremony was perfect - it was a true pleasure to work with Victoria. She understood exactly what we were looking for and offered multiple options for the flow of the ceremony as well as for the different elements. Throughout the entire process, she paid attention to details and was quick to pick up on all of the little things that were important to both of us. She was very helpful in finding exactly the right readings and the right unity element (we used piano keys!), demonstrating not only how much she understood what we wanted, but her creativity.

During the ceremony she told our love story and it seemed as if she had been there for the most important events! Several of our guests noted how she wove the tale throughout the ceremony. We were very pleased with how Victoria included elements to the ceremony that were also important to our guests. We even received notes from invited guests that were not able to make it, indicating they had heard how beautiful the ceremony was and were thrilled that there were aspects of both of our traditions included - especially the religious aspects.

Victoria provided comfort and guidance throughout the ceremony - both in ensuring that we knew what to do at every point in the ceremony through great communication and subtle cues AND in her warm, welcoming manner.

Lastly, we would like to add that since we planned our wedding from out-of-state, Victoria was amazing in ensuring all the details were taken care of - she was, in many ways, our wedding planner!

We would HIGHLY recommend Victoria to anyone looking for an officiant.

I cannot express in words what a joy and privilege it was to work with Victoria. If you are looking for an officiant, do not look any further, Victoria is who you should choose. She was such a pleasure to work with and was always there to lead a listening hear and give amazing advice throughout the entire wedding process. Victoria took the time to met with my husband and I, learn about us, listen to our love story, and create an amazingly unique, personalized, and special ceremony. The ceremony was both our favorite part of the entire wedding day. She completely "Got Us" and had our guests crying and laughing. Victoria will always hold a special place in our hearts and I continue to talk to her even since the wedding has passed. She has a beautiful calm and peaceful way about her that is so admirable. I love to hear her opinion and advice. If you are looking for someone, please reach out to Victoria. You will absolutely not be disappointed. Best of Luck!

Victoria planned our ceremony by listening to our ideas and having us answer questions about our relationship. She formed such a beautiful and breathtaking ceremony. She also made everyone feel so welcome and special. We ha a few bumps on our special day and Victoria helped to smoothe those our so that our day could continue flawlessly. Even after our wedding day, Victoria continues to check in on us and has offered up advice when needed. We would highly recommend Victoria as your wedding day officiant.

As anyone planning a wedding knows, it'll go by in the blink of an eye. And true to form, our's did too. I feel like we met Victoria briefly and then BAM! rehearsal dinner. But I know that in the weeks between meeting Victoria and when she made us husband and wife, she put in so much work and so much effort. Our ceremony was uniquely our's. Everything said was somehow something that had come out of our mouth's, but put together so beautifully. Victoria combined Jamaican and Irish traditions with a slightly Catholic overtone and made it all flow together seamlessly. During the receiving line, everyone mentioned how beautiful and personal the ceremony was. We had some conversations with Victoria and she turned it into something unforgettable, what every wedding should be!

We were looking for an exceptional, personable officiant who could provide a memorable, unique ceremony and Victoria exceeded all of our expectations! Victoria stands out in so many ways:

1) She is creative and has extremely unique ideas. She had our family who were married more than 50 years bless our rings. She did a Polish custom, with our parents bringing up bread, wine and salt to bless our marriage. She customized our ceremony to include our love story and conveyed it in such an amazing way that our guests thought she was a family friend! She drove to our hotel and placed our love letters with roses and chocolate on our bed! She goes above and beyond to guarantee that your day is incredible! 2) She is the only vendor who followed up with us. We booked her 8 months in advance and she routinely sent us emails saying she was thinking about us. She had us work on writing our love letters to each other and sent us ideas. She even called me on the morning of my wedding to see if I needed anything and ask what color I wanted her to wear. She followed up after the ceremony to say how much she enjoyed being part of our day and sent us a copy of our vows. 3) She is easy to trust. Trust is a key component of a ceremony. You are literally trusting that someone you have never met before will make your day memorable. We always felt extremely comfortable with Victoria and felt it was like having a conversation with a friend. 4) She is an outstanding speaker. She conveyed our love story and ceremony like she was talking with friends. We never felt that she was reading from a script or rushing to get things done. She projects great enthusiasm and we truly felt her excitement for our special day. The ceremony is the most important part of a wedding and ours exceeded all of our expectations! It was memorable, unique and personalized to our love story. We literally say WOW when we think about it! Victoria is incredible and we highly recommend her!

Victoria provided us with the perfect wedding ceremony. My husband and I wanted a light on religion ceremony that was personal, non-stuffy and memorable. Victoria gave us exactly that. She spent a lot of time with us and really tried to get to know us and see how our relationship worked. She is extremely perceptive and really honed in on our values as a couple as well as themes in our relationship and then incorporated that into her ceremony. Victoria is just a wonderful person. She was very accommodating throughout the process and gave us valuable guidance. We received numerous comments from guests that it was the best ceremony that had ever attended. I highly recommended Victoria.

Victoria provided a wonderful service to us from beginning to end. Initially we weren't quite sure on what we wanted to do so Victoria gave us some straight forward Q&A style templates from which she was able to identify what was mutually important to us. She was always very responsive and gave us no preassure one way or the other, just some gentile direction to help guide our path. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking. Thank you so much!

Just wanted to highlight and commend Rev Victoria and Rev Jan on the ceremony they created for my wedding this past June. Victoria was able to create a beautiful ceremony for my husband and I, truly emphasizing the love we have for one another. She listened to what we wanted both individually and as a couple. She spent hours perfecting our ceremony, ensuring that it would be flawless. Because of a scheduling conflict, Rev Victoria was unable to officiate on our big day. Knowing this months ahead of time, she was able to contact Rev Jan who filled in to officiate on our big day. Rev Jan was absolutely wonderful as well. She spent time getting to know my husband and I and made us feel very comfortable. I put a lot of trust in both ladies...and I'm glad I did. Everything was perfect and I would definitely recommend them to any future bride.

Custom Wedding Minister, Victoria O Milne responded with the following comments:

I am so delighted to have Rev. Jan as a partner officiant to work with me and officiate the one of a kind custom ceremonies that I create. Having more than one minister enables more couples to have a custom ceremony. Even when couples encounter a scheduling conflict and have to change their ceremony time, they can rest assured they will have the same wonderful service they desire and expect.

Absolutely incredible

From our first meeting with Victoria, my fiancé and I knew our wedding ceremony was going to be something truly unique. A few months later we experienced the most beautiful, unique and memorable day we could have every dreamed of. Victoria created a ceremony so amazingly personal incorporating ever aspect of our lives, feelings, values and beliefs. She was able to tell the story of our love, how we met and what brought us together in a way that created a magical experience not only for us but all of our friends and family as well. During the reception a couple actually told us that our ceremony made them want to work to have a better marriage. I can’t think of a higher complement.
Victoria was so wonderfully easy to work with and always available to answer any questions or share ideas. She helped to make our day truly incredible and something we will cherish and remember forever. Victoria clearly has a gift and we are so grateful to have been able to share it with her on our most special day.
We will be staying in touch with Victoria and look forward to renewing our vows with her in the future.

People attended our wedding and watched our wedding video all said, "It was very touching. The minister was great! Where did you find her?" I guess we were very lucky. This is how we found Victoria - we filled out an online form to find an officiant, and Victoria responded. She was very easy to work with. She gave us lots of advises and gave us sample vows for us to come up with our own. We didn't have to do anything else besides telling her our love stories. She is absolutely amazing. She did ALL the rest. She accommodated our situations, incorporated our love story in the wedding and made it very special and unforgettable.

Victoria is an outstanding wedding officiAnt who made our wedding day special beyond belief!! She not only painstakingly customized each and every reading for our ceremony, she went over and beyond accommodating every detail imaginable. (Even when we forgot some very important details ourselves!) Nothing seemed to phase her and she easily managed the greatest of obstacles! We still are receiving complements about her and not only consider her a rare find, but now cherish her as a very dear friend and advisor. She is so special! Our family and friends couldn't wait to get to know her better after the ceremony, since she is so kind,supportive, and welcoming. You will feel as if you have found a long time friend with so much interest in your love story. She will capture your unique love story, like no other.
Anyone who is lucky enough to have Victoria at their wedding will understand why she is a favorite to so

When you have to plan a wedding in New York and you live in California, the task could appear to be overwhelming. Unless one is lucky enough to be guide to just the right person, whom can make all the dfference in the world. I am referring to Vicoria O' Milne. There are not enough words to express the gratitude my partner and I feel for having Victoria officiate our wedding. She went way beyond the call of duty to ensure that we had a tailor fit wedding to suit our every need. She guided us through the whole process and reassurred us every step of the way. She brought love and laughter and a mutual respect that was not only felt between my partner and I but reached out to each and every guest attending our wedding. She is so amazing in every way and a perfectionist in making your day exactly what that implies "your day'! She listens and gets to know you on a personable level and connects with you in a way that truly makes a difference in how your ceremony will flow. Not only does she unite couples but entire gatherings together in a way that brings such tranquil harmony. For that moment, that day, I felt all that encompassed came full circle. Thank-you Victoria for being you and really getting us. -Melissa & Joan

Our wedding was a very small and intimate elopement. Victoria went the extra mile to make this simple ceremony into a very touching and endearing one. This was not a cookie cutter ceremony -- it was one that was very unique and special to Jim and I. We had our choice of readings and Victoria helped us to write our vows. We also would like to thank Nick for his assistance as well. His special touch was very much appreciated. Our special surprise after the wedding was beautiful.... Thank you so very much.

Victoria designed a ceremony that was eerything we had wanted. We wanted a ceremony that was not extremely religious but one of personal meaning, because it was a small wedding, eeryone that attended had brought something special tou our lives and were there because of it. We wanted our guests to feel as special as we did on our day. Victoria made that happen for us in her special way. My husband is a man of few words and has difficulty exppressing himself and she made him feel comfortable and worked with him to make his voice heard in his own way. I wish I could marry him all over again just to experience this beautiful day...maybe our 10 year anniversary and Victoria will be there!!

From the minute we first met Victoria we felt comfortable with her. She is warm and easy going. I had no idea how to put together a ceremony or even exactly what I wanted, she asked us to tell her our Love story and created the PERFECT ceremony based on everything that was important to us. She calmed my nerves and talked me through all of those little questions that had me uneasy. She was very responsive and had great ideas. She is a wonderful person and officiant.
Our Ceremony was like no other I have ever seen, it captured our personalities perfectly. I feel blessed to have met Victoria and I would recommend her to anyone.

From our very first meeting, we were confident she would create a unique and meaningful wedding ceremony for us. And she did not disappoint! Our family and friends (some of which are strict Catholics) thought the ceremony was beautiful, and especially enjoyed the personalization she added to it. I highly recommend Victoria to anyone looking for a custom wedding ceremony.

Victoria designed the perfect ceremony for my husband and I. She listened to our needs/wants/desires, love story, backgrounds, lifestyles, hopes for the future, and creatively worked it all into our ceremony. We are rather non-traditional, and Victoria was very open to our different style. She's very easy to talk to and to work with. With all the other stuff to worry about when planning a wedding, we never had to worry whether or not our ceremony would go off well. We trusted Victoria and she delivered - in a big way!! Our ceremony was personalized and very enjoyable. Family and friends commented on how the ceremony was so unique to us and how much they enjoyed it. There were also sweet, romantic surprises awaiting my husband and I after the reception. Working with Victoria was truly wonderful and made our wedding day the best day of our lives - thus far!! We would highly recommend her!!

She did a great job balancing all of our different religious backgrounds (we come from many multi religious families). She integrated many parts of our life stories into the ceremony. She was open to our suggestions while also making some of her own suggestions. We would strongly recommend her services to anyone.

Victoria performed a wonderful ceremony for us! We had seen her in action before and knew that she would do a great job. We wanted to do a mixed faiths ceremony as my husband and I are not the same religion. Victoria tied in exactly what we wanted and made the ceremony very personal to us. We received many compliments on the ceremony at the reception and in the weeks following.

We met with Victoria almost a year before our ceremony and she kept in touch with us throughout the year (we lived out of state) and helped us put together exactly what we wanted. She was flexible and able to meet with us whenever we were in town.

I would definitely recommend her!!!

Victoria O'Milne was the Officiant for our daughter Kristen's wedding on July 10, 2010. Victoria is a genuinely kind, caring, compassionate individual. She took the time to get to know the bride and groom prior to the ceremony, and then crafted a beautiful, magical marriage ceremony which reflected their individuality and backgrounds, as well as incorporating their own personalities into the service. Kristen's aunt became emotional while doing the reading, and Victoria sensed her nervousness and put her hand on Cindy's shoulder, which immediately calmed her so that she could complete the reading. Both families were pleased with the manner in which Victoria handled the ceremony, as well as the rehearsal the evening before the wedding. We received so many compliments on her work, but especially how personal the ceremony was for Kristen and Chad. We thank Victoria for making this day so memorable for us as our only daughter was married, and would highly recommend her to other prospective brides and grooms!

We were looking for someone who could create a ceremony that was personal, reflected our personalities and relationship, was unique, and made the guests feel involved. We were lucky to find Victoria, who was able to provide all of these things. We felt comfortable with her right away when we met with her. She met with us when we were able to meet, and we discussed our needs and wants. She will make the ceremony as religious as you would like it to be... we didn't want religion to play a big part in our ceremony. Victoria took it from there and created a beautiful ceremony for us that was exactly what we wanted. People came up to us after the ceremony and asked if we wrote our own vows, because they were that personal. We did not write out own vows, but Victoria had us write love letters to each other and we sent them to her. She then took our own words from our letters and created vows uniquely for us. Victoria printed out the love letters and had them waiting for us on our bed at the hotel after the reception, so that we could take some time as a newly married couple to read these letters and bring us back to each other after such an exciting day. That was really special. Victoria was great to work with, she gets back to you in a timely manner, she is professional, and we recommend her highly!

I came to Victoria a few months before our wedding after contemplating our unhappiness with the first officiant we chose. She responded immediately and went out of her way to make sure we were taken care of. I was very impressed with how smoothly everything went even on such short notice and during a very popular time for weddings. Our ceremony turned out beautifully and we received many compliments. I would highly recommend Victoria!!!

Victoria was incredibly flexible........I changed my wedding date 3 times!! She listened to all of our suggestions and feelings in regard to our ceremony and she offered her own. Our ceremony was personal, spiritual and tailored for us and our family. We have received so many compliments. Someone actually asked us if she was a family member. She took the time to get to really know us. The part of wedding that we wanted to get quickly through and weren't going to spend as much time on became the most important and the most memorable......I am so pleased that we all found each other. She is know an integral part of our love story....

Victoria took time before our wedding to get to know us which helped her to perform a wonderful ceremony that was so personal and memorable to us. She helped guide us through the planning of our ceremony so it reflected our personalities. So many of our guests commented that it was the most beautiful ceremony they had attended. We really enjoyed working with Victoria and would highly recommend her!

Victoria did a wonderful job at making our wedding ceremony perfect! She took the time to understand both of us as individuals as well as a couple. The vows she prepared for us were personalized so accurately, it was as if we wrote them ourselves. She created a one-of-a-kind, beautiful ceremony that we will remember warmly forever.

Rev. Victoria was an answer to our prayer. We had no idea of the possiblities available beyond traditional church weddings and the lackluster civil ceremony from a JP. Her experience, expertise, and wealth of knowledge helped us create a ceremony which fit our exact family situation and included the spiritual essence we desired. Our relationship is a blending of families and she designed the ceremony to respect both the history of each family and the possibilities of the new family.

From a business perspective, she was more than prompt, very professional, and her delivery of the service was exquisite. She made the day the most special and memorable.

Victoria did a phenomenal job with helping us to create our vows. The ceremony was intimate and meaningful. Our parents were honored and our children were included. Victoria was like a burst of sunshine filling the room.

For future brides - We have gotten so many comments on our beautiful wedding ceremony. With all the focus typically on the planning of the reception, Victoria makes the most important part of the wedding day, the ceremony custom tailored and especially memorable.

My husband and I were married in September, 2009 by Victoria. I can't say enough about her, and how special she made our ceremony for us! She was beyond flexible, helping us find ways to make everything work for our dream ceremony. I had so many comments from guests on what a terrific job she did, and how they could tell that she really took the time to get to know us, and to put together something that would reflect us. I've watched my wedding video a few times now, and Victoria's ceremony brings smiles and tears each time - it was perfect!

She was available for any of our questions, very responsive and helpful. She became a friend during all of the planning, which made it so much more comfortable and wonderful!

I highly recommend her for any ceremony!

Victoria is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. The ceremony was exactly how we planned plus some. She met with my wife and I over coffee and gave us ideas on different things to incorirate into the ceremony that we absolutly loved. To be honest, she made the Wedding and I would not have done it any other way. She traveled as far out as Delansen for our wedding not to mention it was early in the morning. You won't find many people who would do that. She even let us incorporate my wife's aunt and uncle's vow renewals last minute so she kind of did a double wedding. When I asked her she loved the idea and did not hesitate to tell me yes she could do it. I would reccommend her to do anyone elses ceremony in a heart beat. Thank you Victoria!

Victoria was the officiant for our wedding in July. She was absolutely amazing! The ceremony was prefectly tailored to fit my husband and I. All of our guests commented on how our ceremony was the best wedding ceremony they had been to because it was so personal and unique. It kept them interested the entire time, and went by so quickly because it was so good. Victoria created a ceremony that was not only religious and beautiful, but personal and relevant. Not only that, but when we got to our hotel suite at the end of the night, it was decorated by her and there was a copy of our vows and love letters that we had written to each other waiting for us! VERY ROMANTIC! When people ask us about our wedding, we say that one of our best decisions was choosing Victoria. We have absolutely no regrets and would not change a thing! Thank you, Victoria, for making our wedding day so PERFECT!!!

Rev. Victoria Milne married us in September 2008. I just can't express how well she was able to capture who we are and help us create a ceremony that was unique and perfectly expressed our love for one another and the coming together of our lives and families. Our family and friends are still talking about how beautiful our marriage ceremony was. Victoria has an amazing gift and we think any bride and groom would be blessed to have her officiate their ceremony.

Victoria was AWESOME!! She came recommended from another officiant I had contacted who had prior engagements on the day of my wedding. I called her and she was able to set up a meeting with us at our convenience. We only knew that we wanted a non-denominational ceremony and had little idea about what to include to make it a substantial and deep moment. She met with us for 2 hours to discuss our ideas, our plans and our lives, as well as give us her ideas about what we should do for our ceremony. She had two forms for us to fill out, one together, giving general information about ourselves, and one apart that asked about why we loved each other. In addition, she had us write love letters to each other that we gave to her. From these 3 things, she designed a ceremony and wrote vows that expressed who we were and why we decided to get married. It was a beautiful and unique ceremony and everyone in attendance at our wedding was touched by how personal it was.

Victoria married my husband and I in April 2007. She was very easy to talk to and was able to work with us even though leading up to the ceremony my groom was already moved to our new home in California. The ceremony was beautiful and perfect. We still have the two red roses that she left for us at our hotel and they remind us of that beautiful day. I would recommend Victoria to anyone I know and love!

Victoria created a personalized ceremony that made our ceremony amazing. She created the ceremony around us and our love story. It was amazing. Our guests complimented us on our ceremony all night, saying it was beautiful and they had never been to a ceremony similar to it, many were brought to tears. Our unity ceremony was personalized and I know Victoria put a lot of effort into making it about my husband and I. We appreciated everything and would absolutely recommend Victoria to another bride. I wanted our ceremony to be memorable and different from any other i had been to and Victoria accomplished that.

Dear Victoria,
I am not sure how you were able to pull together all the elements of Kailey’s and Babak’s wedding ceremony on May 22, 2011, but you did! You not only thoughtfully and sensitively integrated the Christian and Muslim components, but you also incorporated Irish, Italian and Persian heritages in a beautifully seamless manner! The wedding ceremony just flowed. I know you were faced with the challenge of coordinating the ceremony with a Persian officiant who did not speak English as well as translator; somehow you merged all parts of the ceremony with ease. This is testament to your flexibility, your deep respect for all religions and cultures and your compassionate nature. Thank you for making our daughter’s wedding ceremony absolutely perfect!

Victoria was absolutely incredible!!!

We wanted someone that we could get to know before they married us and were not just looking for someone who would go through the requirements to make it legal, but someone who would make it special and meaningful to us. Victoria spent the time with us to understand who we are, where we came from and what we wanted. She paired rituals from both of our backgrounds to make it special to us and our families and friends.

We were pleased with how many of our guests commented on the originality and specialness of our ceremony.

Not only did Victoria help us with our actually ceremony, but she was there for us during a time of loss we experienced just prior to our wedding. Victoria not only provided us with the services she agreed to when she agreed to perform our ceremony, but gave us counsel, support and friendship above and beyond.

We feel truly blessed that we found Victoria and that she made our special day that much more special and are sure that we will look to Victoria when we celebrate the other blessings that our marriage will bring.
