Betty Davis is an absolute gem! We were so lucky to find her.

When living out-of-state, you never know what to expect as you research officiants online. But our officiant Betty Davis was warm and hospitable. She showed a genuine interest in getting to know me and my husband, and even came to our rehearsal dinner. She spoke to each guest, and made a sweet impromptu toast at the end of the evening.

She was so down-to-earth, and everybody loved the ceremony. She allowed us to customize it in whichever way we preferred, and even gave us tips along the way. She always responded within 24 hours (if not immediately), and was incredibly flexible. She was also very professional, arriving early, and dressing appropriately.

On a side note, if you live out-of-state, she waives the "premarital counseling," although she does recommend doing so. Her services are an extremely good value, especially compared to those in the area. I highly recommend Rev. Betty Davis and Riversong Weddings.

Betty was so incredibly wonderful to work with, and I can't thank her enough for helping us create such a beautiful wedding ceremony that was a perfect expression of our love for one another. Betty is very easy to talk to and extremely helpful, respectful, flexible, and patient; she will work with you to understand what you want from your service, providing helpful suggestions when you're stuck but letting you take the lead if you have specific ideas in mind. She did an absolutely fantastic job as an officiant, and I enthusiastically recommend her!

PS: Betty also provided premarital counseling services (secular, though she does offer faith-based counseling as well) for me and my husband at a discounted rate, and it was by far the best money we spent toward our wedding.

Betty was absolutely fabulous to work with. She is a warm and generous individual and a calming and grounding presence when leading a ceremony.

She met with us beforehand and was very helpful both with her gentle suggestions based on her experience but also her willingness to let us rewrite, add or remove from the basic ceremony in any way we wanted. She was very amenable and as she told us, she had done a pirate wedding only the week before, so she was comfortable in whatever clothes and with whatever words would be the most meaningful to us.

Betty is non-denominational which was important to us, and the fact that we wanted almost no direct religious content in the ceremony was totally fine.

She also took the time to get to know us during our meeting and rewrote a few parts of her standard reading based on personal history which was incredibly sweet. I felt it was an excellent collaboration from start to finish and her calm presence at the front of the room and gentle humor calmed my nerves at the ceremony. A joy to work with.

Betty Penton was a wonderful officiant! She met with us and really listened to what we wanted in our service. We wanted some religion without being over the top. She did exactly that. She really worked with us to make sure the ceremony was just right. She came to our rehearsal dinner and really took the time to get to know not only us, but our families as well! This made us feel special, and made a nice connection so that we really felt like she "knew us" and "got us" when she married us! She was truly wonderful to work with and I highly recommend her!

Living in Virginia and planning a wedding in New Orleans presented us many difficulties as we were unable to visit and speak with potential vendors/officials for our wedding. While we had many bumps in the road, when we were introduced to Rev. Betty she was incredibly helpful and informative. Due to situations outside of our control, we were forced to scramble at the last minute (less than a week to the wedding), to find a new official and that is where Rev. Betty came in. Even with the severely condensed schedule, she was patient, flexible and professional. She worked us into her schedule to meet with her prior to the wedding so we could review and make the ceremony personal to our request instead of a vague and impersonal ceremony. On the day of the actual wedding, she was prompt, and walked through with us to ensure everything was to our liking and the ceremony was beautiful and exactly what we wanted. We are very thankful to have met Rev. Betty and would recommend her to anyone!
