If you're looking for a painless, sweet, and inexpensive ceremony, I would definitely recommend Events on a Shoestring. Me and my husband just wanted to be married without all the frills and unnecessary things weddings can entail.

Kelli took us on short notice, she was very flexible, kept in touch, and the ceremony was exactly what we wanted. She was very professional and nice, which means a LOT to a couple of shy people on such a nerve-wracking, special day. She was also very informative about the paperwork for after the ceremony which is very helpful.

We got exactly what we wanted and we couldn't have pulled it off without her.

Kelli was wonderful. She walked us through the rehearsal and gave valuable input but ultimately let me make the decisions. She worked with my crazy family and coordinators. She was professional and she was reliable. She didn't try to add anything to my ceremony. I think if I had to do it all over again, I'd use Events on A Shoestring to coordinate the whole event rather than just my officiant, because Kelli seemed to handle stress and a large group of people casually and calmly. She was at ease with leading a group. I can't say enough good things about Events on a Shoestring. Kelli helped make my wedding day a success.

Kelli made the whole ceremony stress free and easy. She gave us samples and allowed us to built our own ceremony from there. She clearly knew her stuff and made it easy for the two of us to get through the ceremony.

However, our vows actually said during the ceremony were slightly different than what we had chosen. Not enough to ruin it by any means, but just something I noticed.

I wish I, or Kelli, had conferred with each other to make sure we had the same "final draft" of the vows.

Kelli was our officiant, and we were very impressed. She was very professional and helpful with everything! We were able to customize our ceremony to fit exactly what we wanted. Kelli even helped us run the rehearsal as we did not have a wedding planner. We were all very impressed by her and would recommend everyone to go with her as your wedding officiant.

I am appalled at the lack of care and unprofessionalism that we were shown. I received an email at 11pm, two days before my wedding, that outlined the details of our wedding day. After reviewing the information, I noticed that the time was incorrect. I responded to the email letting her know that the time was 5pm not 4pm. She doesn't respond until after midnight and stated that I had never informed her of this time change and it poses a problem as she had another event at 6pm. She would not answer my phone calls but would email me back. The day before my wedding, the only message she would send me is that she would recommend another officiant but she is still trying to find a solution to the problem. The person she recommended had never heard of her. I was very upset as I had chosen her because she told me that she never books more than one event in a day. I was confident that I could depend on her. I asked her to explain in more detail. I didn't know if the other officiant would receive the money I had paid or if I was expected to pay someone else after already paying $250.Again, this is the day before my wedding. She only responds the same statement that she sent previously, recommending that I call this other officiant who is available. This other officiant didn't know who she was and was not available. At this point, I'm upset and state I expect a full refund since she did not show up for my rehearsal. All she can respond is that we are not due any sort of refund because I should have called with the time change and filled out a new agreement. This information would have been useful when I emailed her the time change three months prior to my wedding and she just responded "I look forward to seeing you and your fiance". I also told her when we first signed up with her that I was not sure of the time exactly, and she told me that would be fine. She never brought up the process for how I need to change the time, nor did she recommend in her email that I needed to do anything else. She was the most uncaring person that I have ever met. I have learned my lesson, make sure you read the fine print.

Events on a Shoestring - Wedding Officiant responded with the following comments:

I am disappointed in the review expressed my this client.
Events on a Shoestring made it very clear in the initial meeting and in our cancellation policy what the process was for any changes to the ceremony venue, date and/or time.
We require notification in writing and confirmation must be provided confirming acknowledgement of any changes to the original event location, date and/or time.
Emails are not always the most reliable option for communicating important information since our office receives hundreds a day.
As a result, the cancellation policy was implemented to resolve such problems.
The time of the event was changed and not clearly communicated until the day before the ceremony. Although, the change was going to conflict with another event our Officiant had scheduled. We were working on arranging for another Officiant to perform the cermony and took the extra step to provide another Officiant Service should be unable to accommodate. We had another Officiant scheduled to perform the ceremony when the client emailed and cancelled her Officiant Service.
She did not allow us the opportunity to fullfil our commitment. Which we would have done although it would be with an alternate Officiant.
As a result of the clients cancellation our policy is very clear on the refund policy when a client cancels.
Events on a Shoestring certainly understands the stress a bride and groom are under in preparation of their wedding but in this instance the bride hastily discounted our ability to provide the services they agreed upon.
We were fully able to provide her with an alternate Officiant to perform her ceremony and Rehearsal.
In all the time, Events on a Shoestring has been providing Officiant Services we have "NEVER" failed to fullfil our obligation and have always provided 100% of the services promissed.

For a simple yet elegant experience Events on a Shoe String was perfect for my situation. Everything for me was down to the wire and Events on a Shoe String was there for me every step of the way. The personalization service and attention provided made my special day an even more wonderful one. I had a Gazebo Wedding with a very small party and it was beautiful.

I would definitly recommend Events on a Show String, they provide quality service with style and elegance.

As soon as my husband and I decided we wanted to get married we knew we didn't want to wait months for it happen. I simply called up Kelli and she met us and we were married soon after. The process was very professional, affordable, sweet and simple which is what we were looking for. Kelli is such a sweetheart and she provided all of the necessary paper work that we needed and even took a few pictures for us! I'm so glad that we decided to go with Events on a Shoestring.

I am not sure our wedding would have happened without her help. She managed to keep everyone on track with seamless expertise, and she was always so calming, caring and organized. Honestly, we cannot imagine achieving our dream wedding without the help of Events on a Shoestring. We would recommend her with the highest marks and will always be grateful for what she did for our family.
