Planning a wedding from out of town can be stressfull. Rev. Bonnie made the whole event so easy all we had to do was show up for the ceremony. I highly recommend you pay the little extra for the personalized service. She really gets to know you and captures what is important in your relationship and your lives. I am so happy we chose her to make our day special.

Rev. Bonnie married us at Dumbarton in Georgetown last month. From meeting her, to working with her on our ceremony, the actual ceremony, and wrapping things up...she was amazing! When we met her, we felt like we already knew her...she is so warm and insightful...just a beautiful soul! She really took the time to get to know us, was very responsive/timely/professional, and put her heart and soul into the words she spoke at our wonderful ceremony. She took care of getting all of our paperwork processed and even sent us a little thank you gift in the end. We feel so lucky that we found her! She said to us...if there are no tears or laughter...then I haven't done my job...AND she did do her job! People were so moved by her and our ceremony. It was a dream come true...full of love and beauty! Thank you, Rev. Bonnie!!!

We were referred to Rev. Bonnie J. Berger by the Metropolitan Community Church in DC, an LGBT community-friendly, non-denominational institution. We were lucky and blessed by meeting her. We were thrilled with her ability to relate to so many kinds of different spiritual and religious paths. We found her to be intelligent, sensitive, intellectual, sophisticated, compassionate and very professional. She was there for us throughout the whole process and since we were from out of state, she took care of almost all the bureaucratic work involved. It was a pleasure to realize, when visiting the DC Marriage Bureau, that the staff there think and speak wonders about her and her loving partner. When we are ready to renew our vows and when friends talk about ceremonies for couples, we will definitely recommend her! Ray & Raoul.

My partner and I decided to get married after a wonderful 25 year courtship, but had no idea how to go about making that happen. A friend told us about Rev. Bonnie and we are so very happy that she did. Rev. Bonnie was extremely helpful and easy to work with. She was able to take our wishes and desires for the ceremony and make it happen. Rev. Bonnie was professional, personable, flexible, patient, and friendly through out the entire process. And the best part of all, our short, simple wedding ceremony was exactly what we were looking for. We highly recommend getting in touch with her.

Rev. Bonnie was a wonderful officiant. We are so thankful we found her. We were glad she offered to meet us in person prior to signing a contract. We felt like we clicked with her right away. The planning meeting we had with her closer to our wedding was really excellent, too. Rev. Bonnie was very organized and on top of everything we needed to plan, but she was also very warm and made us feel at ease. In the hectic month prior to our wedding, it was really wonderful to sit down with her and remember why we chose to get married. The customized ceremony she designed for us was just perfect. She was very sensitive to our needs and requests. The ceremony was personal and intimate, and had everyone tearing up (tears of joy, of course). We would highly recommend Rev. Bonnie as a wedding officiant.

My wife and I were truly blessed to have found such a jewel when we contacted Rev. Bonnie and arranged for her to officiate our wedding ceremony. She was delightful, kind, professional, and very clever. Her responses were quick and knowledgable. She was very organized and helped us through every step of the way. We were able to have a smooth, stress free, personal, and loving wedding because of Rev. Bonnie. We felt as though we were her only couple although she is in such high demand. She has a very calming and confident demeanor that allowed us just to enjoy her eloquent and heartfelt words during our ceremony. Through the months of planning and corresponding I felt as though she knew us and as if we had a new friend. We could not have had a better experience than we had with Rev. Bonnie!!

Reverend Bonnie Berger helped us through the whole process of getting married in Washington DC. We currently reside in Virginia and as such, are not permitted to marry in our state. Reverend Bonnie sent us all the paperwork we needed to complete, filed with the District Court for us, and then picked up the license. We initially had chosen a park to be married outdoors, but rain was torrential. Reverend Bonnie quickly offered us a second option, which she set up. She did all of the legwork, making our process smooth and flawless.

Our ceremony was lovely. We felt like we had known Reverend Bonnie for years. She exudes a kindness and calmness that is so comforting during a time of happiness, yet potential anxiety. Instead, we only felt support and love. It is an experience we will always remember.

In a city with an abundance of wedding officiants, Rev. Bonnie stood out to us as someone who had the right mix of intelligence, flexibility, and sensitivity that we were looking for. We met with her twice via Skype to discuss our elopement ceremony. We wrote our own vows and then asked her to give us some "words of wisdom" on marriage as part of the ceremony. She gave a beautiful speech that struck just the right chord for us. We couldn't recommend Rev. Bonnie more highly!

Rev Bonnie married my partner and I this past Friday. We traveled from Raleigh NC for the special event. Rev Bonnie took care of getting our marriage license, made a wonderful suggestion for our ceremony site, and hooked us up with a great photographer. Rev Bonnie is an amazing, caring professional. By asking us just a few questions, she was able to write a ceremony that sounded like she had known us for years! Dina and I were both very nervous before the ceremony but once Rev Bonnie started, we both felt very comfortable and at ease. I would highly recommend using Rev Bonnie for your ceremony!

Rev. Bonnie helped us coordinate our wedding in DC from our home in Florida. She was an outstanding communicator, provided samples to assist us with writing our vows, and provided a contact at the hotel we had chosen. Our wedding ceremony was magical and we are thrilled to provide the highest recommendation for Rev. Bonnie's services. Couldn't have been better!

Rev. Bonnie Berger officiated at our marriage ceremony. The ceremony was perfect by all accounts. Her preparation, personalization, and pacing created a sacred space and brought forth the love among everyone in the room. She was wonderfully prepared, personalizing her words, supportive of the honor attendants and spouses and full of grace. We feel truly blessed to have been married by her and we would highly recommend her services.

Bonnie was a wonderful officiant. We had several specific requests for her, and she honored every one of them. She answered several questions about our marriage license and took the time to meet with us in person and help us figure out the kind of ceremony we truly wanted. She responded to every email quickly and graciously.

Bonnie also went above and beyond her contract. My wife is Chilean, and we wanted a bilingual ceremony. Bonnie prepared all of her remarks ahead of time and sent them to a friend of ours, who translated them. During the ceremony, Bonnie worked with our friend so that he could interject the Spanish at appropriate times. Although they had never met in person and did not rehearse, the ceremony flowed beautifully back and forth from English to Spanish. It was flawless.

Many guests came up to me after the ceremony to remark about Bonnie's choice of words, her genuineness, and how special she made the ceremony. Although we both were very nervous, she helped my wife and me focus on what was happening, guiding us through the ceremony effortlessly. We both are extremely appreciative of Bonnie and very, very happy we chose her to marry us.

A side note: we wanted a non-religious ceremony, and many of the non-religious officiants we looked at were too "touchy-feely" for us. We just wanted a simple, loving ceremony, outside of any spiritual tradition-- we were no more interested in blessings from goddesses than from our own Judeo-Christian traditions. Bonnie struck the absolute perfect balance for us. I understand she does religious ceremonies as well, and I have no doubt she would do a beautiful and profound religious ceremony. But for readers looking for a lay ceremony, I really recommend her.

If you are going to be married in Washington, DC, you owe it to yourself to have Reverend Bonnie help plan and to perform your ceremony! My partner, now husband, and I decided after 5 years that it was time for us to take the leap of faith and become a married couple. We live in Louisiana, which does not recognize single sex marriages, so we decided to go to Washington, DC, to have the ceremony – so it would be federally recognized. I confess, I didn’t know where to begin to make arrangements for the ceremony or what paperwork was required, if there was a waiting period, or what other obstacle(s) I might have to overcome to make our marriage happen. I contacted Reverend Bonnie by e-mail and she responded to me almost immediately. From the moment we established contact to the moment she pronounced me and my husband a married couple, Reverend Bonnie was nothing but supportive, responsive, and determined to help us make our marriage happen. She explained the process to us, served as our surrogate to apply for the marriage license and, after the requisite waiting period, picked up our marriage license and certificate for us. She gave us several ceremonial options from which to choose, including sample vows. All we had to do once we arrived in Washington, DC was to show up for the ceremony. The ceremony Reverend Bonnie performed was very moving for both me and my husband and the words she chose to bless our union moved us both to tears. It was a simple ceremony, as we requested, performed right at our hotel, but a life event neither of us will ever forget. I can’t praise Reverend Bonnie enough for making our special day such a wonderful and memorable event and for helping us remove the worry and stress of making marriage arrangements for a place 500 miles from home. Reverend Bonnie is a gift to this world and we are happy she became a part of our lives.

Rev. Bonnie is the greatest asset for couple planning to marry. Her compassion, love and ability to walk with you through the planning stages go without question. Her willingness to offer direction, suggestions and understanding give her the opportunity to become a part of your family. When we finally met it was a great feeling to finally touch, hear and hug someone that had been words on a page. Without her knowledge and ability to work through the systems our day and the days prior would have been full of stress. As we began our wedding the words she chose we coming from her heart and the ease of being able to enjoy your moment was such a relief. With her love, trust and commitment she will make your special day even a greater day to remember.

When we began looking for an Officiant on line we thought how are we going to do this.We looked at a lot of sights , then we found Rev Bonnie . We started to read her sermons and the more we read the more we new we had found our Wedding Officiant. So we gave her a call . Rev Bonnie took it from there. She provided us with a location , she got our marriage license and she talked with us by Skype to get to know us better. She had all the information she needed to make our wedding a very special day. She was also very helpful in helping us arrange the ceremony so that we could insert all the special music we had chosen for the day.

I am a wedding photographer and I have listened to a lot of ceremonies in my profession but none as beautiful as what Rev Bonnie chose for us. We were truly blessed when Rev Bonnie came into our lives. She will always have a special place in our hearts. Rev Bonnie was amazing.

Reverand Bonnie is a wonderful officiant. My husband and I found her through Wedding Wire, and we instantly connected with her at a preliminary meeting. She was warm, welcoming, and flexible. She was very open to a non-religious ceremony, and she worked with us over the months leading up to our wedding to create something that was unique and completely ours. We trusted her absolutely to write a ceremony that suited us perfectly. On our wedding day, Rev. Bonnie brought a sense of calm to the chaos that preceded the ceremony, and the ceremony itself was really beautiful and moving. She made people laugh, she made them cry, she described our relationship and our love so perfectly it was like she had known us for years. We received so many compliments about the ceremony, and about Reverand Bonnie. We cannot recommend her more highly!

We highly recommend Rev Bonnie Berger as your officiant. As we are from out of state, we had her apply for and pick up our wedding license, and, at a later date, perform our ceremony at our selected time and location. She completely took care of each step of the process to completion and kept us completely updated. She responded to all my e-mail correspondence and telephone calls promptly. She was extremely engaged and responsive to our needs and concerns, friendly and professional. It was a great experience with her as our officiant and we highly recommend her service.

Let me just echo what everyone here is saying - Bonnie is absolutely fantastic. I knew upon meeting her that she was the one. She met with me and my wife twice (for over an hour) weeks before the ceremony. She asked us pointed questions about how we met and how we felt about each other. After the wedding, guests thought she was our pastor because she delivered such a personal and moving ceremony. I cannot express how thankful I am that she agreed to be part of our wedding. She was always so accommodating and even offered us example vows, ring exchanges, etc. Since we also wanted to incorporate my step-kids into the ceremony, she offered all kinds of great suggestions. There's not much more I can say. Bonnie's ceremony was perfect and she is so reasonably priced. And she is adorable to boot! She just has a wonderful "vibe." Thanks again Bonnie!

Rev. Bonnie conducted our wedding ceremony. I can't say enough positive things about her. Prior to the wedding, she talked with us to get to know us better. She obtained our license for us to preclude us from having to come to Washington DC and stay for three days. The wedding was amazing. Our friends and family raved about it being the most touching and personal ceremony they have EVER attended! If you want a personal and touching ceremony to top anything you have ever seen, I highly recommend you use the services of Rev. Bonnie. She will not disappoint!

We were very pleased with the excellent service provided by Rev. Bonnie J. Berger as our Wedding Officiant. Being a same sex couple residing in Florida who wanted to be legally married we searched on the Internet for a clergy officiant near the DC area which is where we wanted to get married. We came across the ring in love website and contacted the minister. We received a very professional quick response and we're very happy to hear that the Minister had officiated same sex weddings. Rev. Bonnie took care of all of the legal paperwork for us and provided us with updates on our Marriage License. She also assisted in providing some different options for our vows and the ceremony. We highly recommend Rev. Berger as a Wedding Officiant. Isabel & Armida

We met Reverend Bonnie at a GLBT wedding expo in Baltimore, MD in January, 2013. At the time, my then partner and I--now husbands!--thought we would have a simple, quick ceremony officiated by a Montgomery County, MD court clerk, but we changed our minds after meeting Reverend Bonnie. Her kind voice and eyes made us realize that we wanted something more spiritually oriented.

We communicated this to Reverend Bonnie via email that evening, and, like all future such communications, her response was timely and complete. We chose her "Short and Sweet" ceremony, and as the date of our wedding drew closer, we worked out the exact details of timing, wording of our vows, etc. At each step, we felt like we had Reverend Bonnie's full attention, and that made us feel even better with our decision to have her be our officiant.

On the day of our wedding, Reverend Bonnie arrived exactly when she said she would, and we quickly reviewed the details of the ceremony. Shortly thereafter, the ceremony began, and WOW! what a heartwarming event it was, not least because of Reverend Bonnie. First of all, and as was commented upon by a number of our friends who were seated farthest from us, she spoke clearly and projected her voice so that everyone--*everyone*--could hear *exactly* what she was saying. Secondly, and even more important, were her actual words. Many of our friends told us later that what Reverend Bonnie said during the ceremony was the highlight of the entire evening, and we feel the same way. Especially, during our exchange of vows, Reverend Bonnie knew to slow down and let us truly feel what was transpiring, and it brought tears to both us and many of our guests. A private blessing by her over us after exchanging vows was an unexpected, wholly meaningful act that crystallized for us what she brought to our wedding: careful, spiritual, personal attention. We can't recommend her enough.

Rev. Bonnie officiated our marriage this past Wednesday. We cannot express how personable, caring, attending and professional she is. We live in another state, yet felt she was right at our side. She walked us through the steps we needed to complete with great patience and love. She allowed and even encouraged us to make our vows and ring exchange ceremonies as personal was we liked. She provided examples on vows and ring exchanges and let us make the choices and additions we wanted. The ceremony, itself, was beautiful. She listened to our wants and then set about to make our wishes come true. She conducted the ceremony professionally, patiently and personalized it to make it truely our own. We would recommend, and have already recommended Rev. Bonnie to our friends. Thank you, Rev. Bonnie! Pat and Jan

Rev. Bonnie provided an extraordinary service and made our wedding day perfect. I am not one to rate anyone or anything "perfect" although in this case, I am happy to do so. She obtained all necessary paperwork for us since we were from Texas (we got married in Washington DC on the steps of the Supreme Court). The night prior to our wedding the forecast called for rain. We contacted her and she was able and more than willing to move our ceremony up several hours thereby beating mother nature. The ceremony was beautiful and her words were chosen carefully and expressed eloquently. She wore a beautiful purple, said all the right words, and did everything with perfection. I would absolutely 100% refer Rev. Bonnie....only if you want the perfect ceremony.

Up to the time we arrived at our chosen wedding site, we had only communicated with Rev Bonnie via email. Her eloquence was quite evident from our first contact. It took very little effort on our part, while Rev Bonnie put together all the details required for the wedding we dreamed of; she handled, with utter efficiency, the mundane legal details that we had no idea how to get accomplished.

When we finally did get to meet her, she was so much more than we expected. Rev Bonnie put us at ease right off and had an air of spirituality that we were wanting for our "blessed" union. The ceremony was very touching and we were extremely pleased with all the sentiments she offered. We will always remember how special our wedding day was, in large part due to Rev. Bonnie.

Rev. Bonnie Berger was wonderful in helping us arrange our wedding, in making suggestions for vows and text of the wedding that suited our different religions and then in conducting the wedding. Everything was done on time and very smoothly. She must have a bit of magic, because she said that the weather would be perfect and it was!

Rev. Bonnie officiated at a joint wedding where we and two other couples, our long-time friends, were married. While we'd only communicated with her via emails, Rev. Bonnie personalized each couple's portion of the ceremony. We were so pleased with how Rev. Bonnie's intuition enabled her to "get us" as couples. She eloquently created a lovely ceremony that celebrated us as individual couples and as dear friends sharing a wedding day.

She was also very timely in her responses, able to accommodate our first choice of date, affordable, very knowledgeable about the area so as to offer options for venue and genuinely happy to be a part of our ceremony. It was such a wonderful, hassle-free experience that we'd recommend to anyone for her to serve as their officiant.

Rev. Bonnie Berger married us on Augut 14. We flew to Washington and were scheduled to go to the church for the ceremony and then to the Courthouse to order certified forms. Knowing my limitation on walking Rev. Bonnie said "there is a little park across from the Colurthouse. I will meet you there for the ceremoney and then walk across the street to the courthouse." This was most helpful. Her handling of the entire process was outstanding. Definition of Rev B: " COMPASSIONATE FACILITATORr" Our rating is definitely 5 Stars.

Every little girl grows up dreaming of how her wedding day will be. The perfect dress, the exotic flowers, her best friend standing by, all the things that make her day complete. Then the little girl grows up and dreams of her perfect mate and the perfect ceremony. I was blessed with both. Fate gave me my amazing wife and Rev. Bonnie Berger gave me the most amazing and personal ceremony I could have dreamed up. This didn't feel like it was her job, but instead a calling she is passionate about.
Rev. Bonnie took the time to get to know my partner and I. She asked questions about how we met and why we fell so deep in love. She then turned those questions and conversations into a beautiful message about us. She included our family, friends, and even our daughter in our special moment. She took the time to have a private moment with my wife and I, giving us words of encouragement and love. Nothing could have made our wedding day better and we definitely have Rev. Bonnie Berger to thank for that.

We absolutely loved what Rev. Bonnie did for our ceremony! I wouldn't have wanted anyone else. My husband and I are more spiritual than religious and I was worried that our officiant might feel the need to start spouting scripture. I was also a little worried after the personal interview. She said she would incorporate our story of who we are and our relationship into the ceremony, but that it would be a surprise. It turned out to be fantastic!! She was funny, personal, heartfelt and spiritual - everything we needed her to be on our special day! Highly recommended!

John and I were exceedingly pleased with the prompt and professional service of Rev. Bonnie in conducting our recent marriage at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. We were visiting from Memphis and only had 4 days to complete the procedure for obtaining a license and finding someone to conduct the service. Rev. Bonnie guided us through the license application process and assisted us every step of the way. We were able to get the 3 day waiting period waived and our ceremony was beautifully performed and a truly memorable event. We will always remember that special moment and Rev. Bonnie's kind words and thoughtful message and our cherished wedding vows. We greatly appreciate her services and would hightly recommend her wedding services.

This was not an easy task as she was to perform a Christian wedding for my fiance and I and my son and his partner. I was amazed to say the least at the unbelieveable ceremony Rev. Bonnie put together for the four of us. She took time to get to know us and time to make sure nothing went unsaid. She added her own special touches and the entire congregation commented on how beautiful the ceremony was. We are thankful to her for making our day so special and beautiful.

Rev. Bonnie Berger married my wife Lisa and on I on my 40th Birthday on 7/7/12. She braved 105° temperatures (with a heat index of 112°) to give us the sweetest, most beautiful ceremony that we could have ever imagined, in Meridian Hill Park in DC.
She arranged everything for us via phone calls and emails, and even got our marriage licence for us, as we live in Pennsylvania and it would have been very challenging for us to get to DC to get it.
She sent us sample vows and ring exchange wordings and was even open to us creating our own or using a mixture of the samples.
She also completely honored my atheist views and substituted Universe for God, to respect my spiritual, yet non religious beliefs.
She spoke to us the most beautiful poetry in creating our ceremony!
Since I could take my eyes off of my beautiful wife, we both only truly heard 1/2 of what she spoke so beautifully and eloquently to us.
After the wedding she was wonderful enough to send me a copy of her beautiful words for Lisa & I to treasure eternally.
I would completely and whole heartedly recommend Rev. Bonnie to anyone in love and looking for the magical wedding you have only dreamed of.
I & my wife Lisa are eternally grateful to Rev. Bonnie for joining us in wedded bliss for the rest of our lives!

Rev Bonnie was so accomodating, and flexible with us. Although the wedding was in DC, we currently live in Florida, so Rev Bonnie actually prepared our ceremony from a distance.

All we had to do was show up. Her service was meaningful and heartfelt which made the day even more special. Even though she was going through some family difficulties the week of our wedding, she was there to conduct a beautiful ceremony by a human-made waterfall in a gorgeous park in DC. The entire experience could not have been better or more meaningful, and things could not have gone any more smoothly than they did. Rev. Bonnie is incredible!

I found Rev. Bonnie on Wedding Wire and was immediately drawn to her photograph, she seemed like such a kind and caring soul. And were my instincts correct! I was amazed at how personalized and unique our ceremony was with only two visits and a handful of emails. She listens intently to everything you say, taking stock of the unsaid as well---she truly "got" us. She also helped us through a difficult time when our cat was diagnosed with cancer only two weeks before our wedding. She was there with spiritual guidance and gave me much strength. The end result was a ceremony that evoked much laughter, many tears, and filled with love. I couldn't have asked for a better officiant for such a special day.

My husband and I hired Bonnie to officiate our ceremony. From the very beginning, she was extremely responsive and flexible. Bonnie helped us craft a personal ceremony that took into account our cultural backgrounds, personal beliefs, and family. For example, we worked with her to incorporate our guests doing some spanish during the ceremony. She made suggestions, sent us her thoughts and proposals, but was receptive to our desires.

One of the things that worried me about hiring an officiant is that the ceremony wouldn't be personal. But Bonnie gave a wonderful speech about us at the wedding. The ceremony went off flawlessly. Lots of people commented afterwards about how much they enjoyed it.

Finally, Bonnie was always on time and extremely responsive. She was professional the day of the ceremony and was checking in with us up to the last minute to make sure everything was ok. Bonnie also helped coordinate our rehearsal, and she worked very well with our wedding party.

Rev. Bonnie was great! We wrote our own vows and she got what we were trying to do and supported it. During the ceremony itself all three of us were laughing at times, so that it was really a joyful and relaxed occasion.

My partner and I live in Colorado. Rev. Bonnie arranged the marriage license and provided guidance as to the entire process. When we had questions about locations, she was very informative and supportive to make sure our wedding day was PERFECT. Rev Bonnie was very responsive via e-mail and we had one Skype meeting which was great. I have recommended her two other couples from Colorado who are thinking of going to DC to get married. We highly recommend Rev. Bonnie to anyone who wants to have a fairly stress free wedding.

We loved having Reverend Bonnie officiate our wedding ceremony. Not only was the ceremony perfect, but we felt that we gained a friend as well. In addition, during our interview, she helped us to articulate the traits that we value and adore in one another. That, along with the ceremony, are memories that we will cherish forever.

Planning a wedding at a venue 1300 miles away that we'd never visited could've been an extremely stressful experience, Rev Bonnie made sure that it wasn't. She worked with us to customize the entire ceremony, even rewriting the vowels so they were more personal to us. She was prompt, attentive and fun to work with. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who may be considering her!

I can't say enough about my experience with Rev. Bonnie Berger. My husband (then fiance) and I found Rev. Bonnie on Wedding Wire and thought she looked friendly so we decided to set up a meeting with her. Even though we had not met with anybody else, we decided during the first meeting that we wanted her to marry us. She's very warm and has a calm, loving energy. On the second meeting, she asked us to talk opening about ourselves. I could tell she was really listening and genuinely interested. We went over what we were generally looking for in our ceremony and she described the process. We did not know exactly what she was going to say during our ceremony but it turned out to be absolutely beautiful. Her words were genuine, funny, touching and it was as if she had known us personally as a couple from the start. I got so many compliments throughout the night on Rev. Bonnie. I honestly feel like she was a large part of making our day so special and a unique reflection of ourselves.

Rev. Bonnie is an amazing woman. We contacted her asking her to help us with our marriage ceremony in D.C. We did not know what to do, where to begin and what was required. She obtained our license via proxy, provided us with pages of sample vows and ring exchanges and even recommended several places to have our ceremony. We took parts from the samples she sent and created our own vows and ring exchange words. The whole experience was incredible and there is no doubt, our wedding was the most beautiful we have ever seen! Rev. Bonnie provided us with a ceremony that was emotional, breathtaking and sacred. I cannot begin to explain how deeply her words touched us. Only afterwards did we learn that she put all this together while dealing with having a ten ton tree fall on her house from the storm. This is pure dedication! By talking with her we discovered a woman who is delightful, funny and would be honored to call a friend. If you are looking for someone to help you create the wedding of your dreams (including a small intimate one like ours), Rev. Bonnie is the person to go to. She will guide you through the entire process, answer all your questions and help you in so many ways. We rated her a 5.0/5.0, but it should be a 100.0/100.0!! Honestly, please contact Rev. Bonnie - she will make your wedding such a pleasure to plan and a blessed event you will never forget!! BTW, we had someone to take pictures but wish our ceremony would have been recorded either audio or visual. We would love to be able to listen to it over and over!! We are now Legally Married (in D.C. anyway-New York is next!) and are still beaming!! I cannot begin to explain the joy we feel knowing we are joined in matrimony! Thank you so much Rev. Bonnie for everything you did for us and for being the incredible and inspiring woman that you are!!

Rev.Bonnie was extremely flexible and kind in helping us with the logistics of our wedding. We had already had a wedding in NC many years earlier and saw this as a renewal and a necessary legal hurdle for our family.

Rev. Bonnie was able to take this knowledge and craft a truly lovely ceremony that spoke to our relationship in ways that were remarkable given the brief time we spent working with her.

We went with another couple to D.C. (who were getting married for the first time). Far from uniform, the ceremony and vows she helped to craft for them were completely perfect for who we know them to be together.

As we left the park where we shared our vows, we all commented in wonder that Rev. Bonnie seemed to "know" us and intuit who were were as couples and the words/rituals that we each wanted. We can't recommend her more highly.

If you have a dream, Rev. Bonnie will make it happen.
From her first email response, I knew that our first meeting would confirm that she was the one we wanted to perform our ceremony.
She is open to any traditions that will make your wedding special to you.
We met at the Franciscan Monastery to pronounce our 'legal vows', and then had a lovely ceremony with friends and family in our back yard.
Being able to write our own vows, the passing of rings to all present for a blessing, her beautiful remarks to involve everyone present , the breaking of
glass at the end completed 12 years of longing to be married to my devoted life partner.
Rev. Bonnie will make you feel very comfortable.
She will offer suggestions and provide verse, but all choices are left to the couple.
Thank you Rev. Bonnie for being part of this wonderful day, and I hope that you will stay in touch.

I couldn't think of a better setting than DC or a better officiant than Bonnie for our ceremony. We knew (provided that the weather was good) that it was going to be a fantastic experience, and Bonnie helped make it even better than we expected.

We were so happy with our experience with Rev Bonnie! Throughout the planning stages she made herself available for consultation and treated us with so much love and respect it made us feel so comfortable that it was almost like we had been friends with her for years! We live in Texas and having only experienced narrow minds and outright bigotry from some people of faith we were concerned what we might run into arranging our wedding long distance. Bonnie put all those fears to rest from her first email response, thru our Skype meeting, and right into a ceremony so beautiful and touching that words cannot properly express our deepest gratitude. If you are looking for someone to perform your ceremony, you MUST get in touch with Rev Bonnie first. You will not regret it!!!

Reverend Bonnie was the first potential officiant we interviewed. We knew before the meeting was over that we would be calling to cancel the rest of the interviews we had planned. Reverend Bonnie took the time to ask us questions that not only helped her get to know us, but her questions also revealed things to and about us as individuals and a couple, and we came away knowing more about ourselves. She did the thankless work of getting the license and dealing with city hall, and on the day of the ceremony, she added a depth of meaning and abundant joy. I'm sure our wedding day would have been special if we had never met reverend Bonnie, and we're equally sure it would have never been AS special without her. We'll always be grateful to her.

The Reverend Bonnie is truly one of a kind. She took the time to come to know both of us...who we are, what we value, why we wanted to marry one another, who we were as individuals and together as partners, and then she wove a story into a ceremony that was a beautiful story of each of us coming together. She suggested ceremonial rituals which we had not thought about that served to strengthen the bond we were committing to and she involved our guests in those rituals. Our guests were truly moved by hers and our service. We had considered a number of other Officiants but when we met Reverend Bonnie we knew immediately that she was the perfect Minister for us in the All Souls Unitarian Church setting. I doubt you will ever find anyone with as much insight and love in her heart as Reverend Bonnie.

My partner and I live in North Carolina. We’ve been together for a few years and we wanted to get married. We decided we’d get married in Washington DC. We researched several websites trying to find someone to officiate our wedding. We emailed several people who didn’t appear to be willing to answer our many questions about how to marry in DC. We eventually came across Bonnie and we emailed our questions to her. Bonnie quickly responded and elaborated on every question. It was obvious to us that she took the time to help strangers who were trying to handle things long distance. Right from the start we knew that she was the one for us.
Bonnie continued to answer all our questions along the way. She was willing to file for our marriage license and picked it up for us. She was willing to perform our ceremony any way we wished. She sent examples of vows and wording for the ring exchanges. We were able to write our own versions to express what we wanted to say to each other. Bonnie eventually met us through Skype and she was able to personalize our day perfectly from the things she learned about us. Our wedding was informal, relaxed and a mix of laughs and fun stories which reflected our personalities to a tee.
We had a difficult time finding a location for our wedding. Although same sex marriages are legal in DC most places weren’t receptive to hosting a same sex wedding. Bonnie actually took it upon herself to call a local place and ask if we could have a wedding there. Although they had never hosted a wedding they were willing to open their doors for us. We were actually married, with friends and family, at Larry’s Lounge on a National Holiday before they actually opened for business. We will always be grateful to Ron who owns Larry’s Lounge.
We were very pleased with Bonnie and we’d recommend her highly. Thanks for everything Bonnie!

We could not have asked for a better officiant. Bonnie got to know us by phone but on the day of you'd have thought we'd known her for years. She made it very simple, she's gracious and very kind hearted, all of the qualities you want in someone who is going to reside over your wedding. Very special lady, great day!
