Dee is AMAZING!!! We were referred to Dee by our photographer, Erica Ann Photography, and I am so glad! Upon our first meeting with Dee she spoke with me and (my new husband), Sean. Our first meeting was about 2 hours long. Through casual and fun conversation she was able to get to know us and get a feel for what we wanted. I really wanted a non-religious, fun and sweet ceremony. I didn't want any of these boring, solemn ceremonies that I am used to seeing at weddings. After our first meeting, Dee provided us some readings and verbiage for us to use to create our own wedding vows. She provided assistance in helping us create our own vows and made the process really easy. Which was great because we were really worried about that part. Upon our second meeting, Dee had typed out the ceremony for us to go over. It was perfect! She included even the smallest details from our first meeting and she really listened to what we wanted.
The day of, Dee was incredible. She got there early, she was helpful in making sure things were set up properly and making sure everything was going smoothly. I cannot tell you how many compliments I got on her ceremony. People were so impressed. I was and keep being told that it was one of the best ceremonies they had ever heard. It was personal, fun, touching, and with laughter hidden in there. Dee made Sean and I feel so comfortable, not an easy feat for two shy people. I cannot say enough good things about her. After the ceremony, she hung around for a bit, chatted with our guests until we were ready to sign the documents.

Dee is just a breath of fresh air, she was a calming fun presence throughout the whole process and the day of.

You would be sorry if Dee was missing from your wedding!!!

Rev. Dee is absolutely amazing! After meeting with some not so great people, my husband and I started to get discouraged but the second that we met Rev. Dee we knew she was the one we wanted to officiate our wedding. Both my husband and I were extremely nervous about being in front of so many people at the ceremony so we wanted something short sweet but with meaning. Not only was she great at getting us calmed down, she did a great job at making our ceremony so beautiful and special. I would recommend her to everyone.

We will start this review with the fact that Dee is a wonderful wedding officiant and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding. We met Dee by chance three months before our wedding when we sat next to her at a friend’s wedding reception. After having seen firsthand her energetic and kind nature, we knew she would be a perfect addition to our ceremony. We met with her a month in advance of our wedding to give her ideas for what we were looking for. She was very receptive to our ideas and desires for what our ceremony would look like and helped us pick out passages and inspirational quotes as well as organize logistics. We had a hard time making certain decisions for what would be said, what the procession would look like, and what order everything would happen in. Luckily, Dee had some wonderful ideas and answers to our questions but also let us make the final call on any decision. She was also able to attend our wedding rehearsal and was able to walk us through how everything would look so there were no surprises on the day of. She offered to stay for the reception and interacted very well with guests and people had nothing but great things to say about her. Her exuberance and passion for what she does make her a perfect officiant. She is fun to watch and listen to. She will always remember that it’s your special day and will do whatever she can to make it perfect for you. We hope this review has been helpful and again, we would highly recommend Reverend Dee.

Josh and I are a very young couple who were married on the beach earlier this month! Your ceremony, in my opinion is the most important part of your wedding. You really want to find someone you connect with, someone you feel comfortable with to help you celebrate your love and marry you. We found that in Dee, we couldn't have chosen a better officiant! She wrote a beautiful ceremony, that was so unique to us and our love. We got so many compliments on the ceremony, and my aunt is meeting with her soon to discuss her wedding! She has a very warm, loving, and adorable essence about her you can't help but love! Dee is a very genuine beautiful person, who will make your wedding day everything it should be.

From the beginning Dee was amazing. Worked around our ached and helped us succeed in having an amazing wedding. Even though our ceremony got delayed thanks to the rain and she had another wedding to get to Dee didn't rush our ceremony at all. It was absolutely beautiful and I couldn't be happier.

Rev Dee Richardson did an amazing job during our ceremony. Everything went perfect and there were no complications. She helped us out from the beginning with coordinating ideas and if we needed help finding other vendors, she already had some that she recommended. The ceremony was perfect and very warm and heartfelt. Rev Dee fit right in with the whole ceremony and family. Clinton and I are so happy with her professionalism.

Oh my...where do i start? Our wedding would not have been the same without Dee. Period. I cannot put into words the sense of relief we felt from the moment we first met with her thru to the very end. Her warm, personal touches along with her professional expertise was so refreshing after meeting with other officiants and leaving their offices feeling like it wasn't a match and we were never going to find the perfect officiant.
She was so patient with us as we wrote our own vows, patient and supportive of family members needs and requests and so in tuned to what made us as the Bride and Groom happy. We love her. We feel like she is a part of our family! I cannot say enough good things about her . We got so many compliments from guests and other vendors of ours as well which just reassured what we already were feeling. If she is available for your wedding date look no further- book her now.
And if she is already booked on the date you have chosen...pick a new date that she IS available. ;) Seriously- she is worth it.
