Carla is amazing! She is extremely professional and easy to work with! She made writing our own vows super easy! She also pays careful attention to the photographer to make sure he catches your first kiss. I would highly recommend Carla and her premium package because she it is well worth every penny to make sure the most important part of your wedding day runs smoothly.

Carla is great! She makes everything simple and straight-forward. She is very responsive, friendly, funny, and extremely accommodating. We decided to write our own vows, but she also provides many templates just in case. We would recommend her to anyone looking to have a fun, intimate, and personalized ceremony.

Carla was really sweet and very professional!! She answered all our questions promptly and swiftly. She gave us samples of the ceremony and vows which I thought were great. She is a lot of fun and she added humor to our wedding ceremony. A lot of officiated keep it serious, but she made ours fun and quite enjoyable adding many laughs during the ceremony. I would recommend her to anyone getting married. I couldn't have imagined anyone else officiate our wedding.

Since the moment we contacted Carla, she was super helpful. She gave us all of the information we requested promptly. She was extremely nice in our first phone conversation and she offered to meet us at a convenient location for us to discuss more details about cost and ceremony requirements.
As soon as we met her, we decided that she would be the officiant for our wedding. She was cheerful, friendly. and kind, plus she is bilingual. We wanted an officiant that could do our ceremony in Spanish.
Carla was always easy to contact through email or by a phone.
The day of the wedding, she arrived on time and took care of all of the paperwork. Carla even communicated with the photographers to make sure they were all in sync on what was needed to do to have the wedding flow properly.
We would recommend My Dream Ceremony to any couples looking for a professional and friendly officiant.

We found the amazing Carla and she was very professional and understanding of our situation. She comforted me and walked me through everything. She was a blessing on our special day. THANK YOU

Long story short, my fiancé and I decided to cancel the services with the officiant we had booked 3 months prior, 5 days before our wedding. We thought we were given poor service. After searching a bridal website, we found Carla of My Dream Ceremony. I called her in the morning, and she was able to meet with us that same afternoon. We instantly knew that she is wonderful. She is organized, attentive, knowledgeable, and super sweet. She took away any worry that we had caused by our previous officiant.

She helped us to create a beautiful ceremony. We got so many compliments on it. She also helped out a lot before and during by helping to keep everyone and everything in order.

I would definitely recommend Carla to anyone, hands down. I wish I would have done more research before booking my previous officiant, so that I could have booked Carla to begin with.

Carla was AWESOME!!!!! She made me feel at ease. I met with her personally, before my wedding date, to go over everything and she was very detailed in how everything would go and that she was very open to suggestions. Like she said, it was my day and I had control of how the ceremony would turn out to be. She was open to all of my suggestions! And the day of my wedding was no exception. She truly worked her magic and it was as if she was part of my family. All of my guest loved her! Thank you Carla for everything, you will forever be a great part of my special day!!

Carla was outstanding. She made some suggestions that seemed to fit us. I felt she tried to make the ceremony about us and not just a cookie cutter one, and she took our suggestions with no issues and went with it and made it work. I had called many other officiants but 5 mins with her we were in. The only issue I did have is, during the ceremony there seemed to be a few mistakes, blunders, and awkward pauses when reading our love story and vows, and she did not introduce us as we asked. I knew somewhat what was going on that day, but your obviously locked in the moment, however this was very evident after seeing the video( which I'm paying to re edit) and getting some phone calls from friends and family. I just think she could have known the material a little better. But I do think she a very solid, caring person that you can count on to officiate your wedding!
