INVITATION TO A WEDDING ™

(407)232-0520

Do you need a Wedding Officiant or Day-of Wedding Coordinator?

Thelma Brathwaite is an Ordained Wedding Minister here in the Central Florida area, as well as a

Notary for the State of Florida.

I am a religious believer of faith however, I do not impose my religious beliefs on anyone.

I respect your beliefs and work with you to create that SPECIAL wedding ceremony you have always imagined.

I perform Christian Weddings and Non-denominational, Interfaith, Multicultural, Civic and Wedding Vow Renewals.

As your Wedding Officiant I love specializing in and creating your customized Wedding Ceremony/Vows

you are also involved in this process.

You can choose where you want to have your ceremony, church chapel, private home, hotel,

beach resort, museum or public park, you get to choose.

You will always have a wedding ceremony that you envision for the both of you.

&.

Express how you feel to one another in your personal wedding vows.

Your wedding ceremony reflects your unique and special qualities as a couple. WOW!

You may also want to include a religious or spiritual element into your ceremony with a reading, song or poem,

you are only limited by your imagination because a ceremony expresses your uniqueness.

Your ceremony can be as religious, traditional, simple and sweet, or as creative as you choose.

It's your day - one that you want to remember forever.

A conversation does not cost anything and we travel outside the Central Florida area, so give us a call

or leave a message and we will get right back to you.

Thank you! Read less

Thelma was my wedding coordinator.

My only wish is I would've hired her sooner. She was the one person that I hired that I did regret hiring she was like one of the family.

Thelma was awesome! She responds to emails and phone calls quickly, is warm, professional and easy going. Our first meeting to discuss details of the ceremony felt like talking with an old friend. Thelma asked a lot of questions about us as a couple and really got to know us - she then worked this in to the ceremony. She gave us multiple ceremony scripts to choose from, ranging from traditional to more modern and poetic. Our guests assumed she was a close friend of ours because of how genuinely happy she was during the ceremony. Afterwards, she took care of all the marriage license details for us including mailing it.

I am so very blessed and thankful to Minister Thelma for being a major part of our day. Her professionalism and kindness exceeded all of our expectations and more. When we first met her, she just wanted to know strictly about us...getting to know us as individuals and then how we first met. She was so genuine, wanting to know all the details, really listening and interested on how we found love. I love that about her. She really understood exactly what i wanted for my wedding. She worked countless times making sure every detail of how i wanted the ceremony to go on paper was exactly how it would be the day of the wedding. I really didn't know what i wanted to be played in certain parts of the ceremony and she suggested a few songs and i LITERALLY...used almost every one. She knew exactly what i wanted just by a few conversations between us and that is a very special gift Minister Braithwaite has that separates her from other officiants. During rehearsal we may have ran through it a couple of times and before that was good enough for anyone else she asked me did i want to run through it again. She always pays attention to our needs before anyone...truly understanding that is was our day. Her smile lights up the room and i cannot tell you how many compliments people gave us on how FANTASTIC she officiated our wedding. Aside from just being our officiant, Minister Thelma is a beautiful person inside and out and i know if i needed to speak with her about anything, I could always call her and talk to her. She became our friend from the moment we met i am soooo thankful she was part of our wedding day and apart of our lives forever!

She also pronounced my new last name (Badyooni) right on the day which is very hard for a lot of people to remember lol. Thank you so much!!

I am writing to recommend the services of Thelma Brathwaite.

Thelma stepped in as an officiant for our October 26, 2013 Disney World Wedding after we made a last minute change in the direction we wanted to take our vows and ceremony between 3-4 months before the big day. Being a destination wedding and our second ceremony (a week a part from the first), I was a very anxious bride who needed someone flexible and attentive to what we envisioned for our special day. I am happy to say that from the moment I spoke with her on the phone, I was immediately comfortable with Thelma. Her knowledge and attention to detail aided in keeping my husband and I on track during the planning process.

I was very excited to have a woman officiate for us and it was even more exciting to have someone who was open to adding the personal touches we wanted in our ceremony! She also walked the line between firmness and friendliness very well throughout, keeping everyone in the family and wedding party focused on the tasks at hand during our ceremony rehearsal. I can say that Thelma is not only professional, but I found her to be also very easy to work with. She was always understanding, and willing to take the time to discuss my concerns and respond to questions I had whether that was on the phone or via email.

I feel confident in recommending Thelma's services to any bride, but especially a destination Disney Bride who has a particular set of extraordinary needs. She met ours and much more! Thank you, Thelma!

I hired Thelma as my Reception Coordinator and she was amazing! She asked many questions so that she could get my exact vision in mind, and set up everything as I wanted. She even served my Bridal Party our food and beverages, although I had not asked her to do so. She was flexible, as we met in person, spoke on the phone, and e-mailed each other. If I didn't have Thelma there, I definitely would have not had such a relaxed and perfect wedding reception. :)
