Wendy is the most professional Officiant available. She is creative and fun. She is easy to talk to, and open to any ideas you have. She is always very quick to respond to questions, and to get the ball rolling when it comes to booking her. And her printed copy of the ceremony is such a beautiful keepsake too! I will definitely use her again for our vow renewal. -Michelle B.

Wendy at Our Simple Ceremony made our lives really easy as we were preparing for our wedding. She took care of all the legal aspects for us (apart from the marriage license we had to get). She completely prepared our ceremony for us, giving us a number of options to choose from and then taking it from there. She was receptive to any changes or edits we asked for. She showed up to the wedding early, was very professional in all dealings with us, and seemed genuinely happy to be marrying us. She did a wonderful job with the ceremony! We'd recommend her to anyone needing a professional marriage officiant who helps relieve a lot of pre-wedding stress!

Wendy is the best! She sent us a questionnaire about us and what our style was for the ceremony and she created our entire ceremony from scratch! We were able to add and remove what we wanted. My husband and I decided to write our own vows and I'm pretty sue my husband sent her his vows the week of the wedding ??! She is incredibly professional, but you can tell she absolutely loves being an officiant! She performs the ceremony from a portfolio and your vows are there too! My favorite part is that you get to keep your full ceremony portfolio and it looks so beautiful! My husband and I received many compliments about the ceremony and about how great and professional Wendy looked and spoke. I highly recommend Wendy to all couples! Thank you so much Wendy!

It was everything we could have hoped for. Wendy was so professional, sweet, patient, amenable to our date, time and location. She even played with the small kids to keep them busy while we signed papers.
We were 100% comfortable the entire time with her.
We would recommend her to all of my family and friends.

Wendy is wonderful! She was a wonderful, calming and organized influence on our wedding nuptials. She helped us in organizing our thoughts, giving us options and incorporating our vows to one another. Our ceremony was wonderfully 'us' , and we have Wendy to thank for keeping it organized but not informal. She was a calming presence the day of, with a light sense of humor to keep everyone smiling but on task. I heard from MANY people "WHERE did you FIND her?! She was terrific!" She did such a great job. The questionnaire she sent us helped us organize our thoughts and allowed us to have a heartfelt, but not 'sappy' ceremony. We do not have a church, we're not religious people, but through the questionnaire we realized there was an option to have reverent but not religious (also options for religious for those who have a specific faith) which really appealed to us. We wanted something personal and lovely but not cloying or faith-based, and she delivered. Her options would work for all sorts of people from all backgrounds, and that is great. We were so pleased. Everyone said our vows to one another (Wendy organized and put together the ceremony and we additionally wrote vows to one another) were the most heartfelt and lovely they had heard. Not a dry eye in the house! Thank you, Wendy.. it was just wonderful!

Wendy was excellent. Since the first e-mail to our wedding day we had open channels of communication. She provided us all the information we needed and her recommendations for a restaurant, the location, and the photographer were spot on. We are so glad God put Wendy on our path to assist us with our wedding and help us make this the best day of our lives!

Wendy got back to us on the same day and was able to confirm her availability. She sent documentation for us to review and we had the ceremony we wanted (not what someone else thought we should have). She also whispered instructions during so we didn't look clueless and was able to handle our dogs freaking out and barking in the middle. Very professional.
