We couldn't have asked for a better officiant. Brooke was enthusiastic, kind, and full of cheer and humor, yet treated our ceremony with respect, poise and clearly took our actions seriously. When we first met, she asked us many questions about what marriage meant to us and why we were eager to share our lives together to ensure she created a ceremony that reflected out personalities, beliefs and priorities. The finaly ceremony was so us and couldn't have been more perfect. She was wonderful and we were so happy to have her as part of our big day. Thanks Brooke!

The pre-event meeting during which Brooke went over a number of questions and then followed up by providing sample vows and readins was very helpful. We edited the ceremony content several times and Brooke was always ready to incorporate them without delay.

Brooke was a wonderful officiant to work with. She is easy-going and flexible, and very responsive to our needs and wishes. She also had some wonderful ideas, not only for the ceremony but the reception. The ceremony was personalized to fit our family and Brooke made a huge effort to put special, unique qualities in place during the day. I would highly recommend her to a friend.

Brook was an amazing wedding officient. We met up with her about 2 months prior to the wedding at a Starbucks and even though we were late she was so kind and funny! We were only there for about a half hour and she asked us series of questions about are family,lifestyle and relationship and from that she wrote such beautiful vows the whole ceremony that she wrote was amazing she added a poem and prayer and we got married at a winery so she also incorporated that as well. We had her come to reversal which was really worth it because we had no idea what we were doing and she really helped us get organized. The day of the ceremony was perfect she did such a great job she has beautiful speaking voice and made us all stay nice and calm even though it was pouring down rain!! She was perfect I couldn't of had anyone better!

Brooke from Marriage Mate was very accommodating when initially meeting with my fiance and I to begin the process of contracting an officiate. She also discussed and provided us many different vow structures and ways to include my fiance's children into the ceremony vows. Our family and friends (as well we) were VERY impressed with Brooke's ceremony choices, professionalism, and friendliness. We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND her to anyone getting married.

Brooke was very easy to work with and provided some great ideas for the Ceremony. One of which was including my husband's 13yr old son into the ceremony. We bought him a set of engraved dog tags that will remind him of us. We did not want to write our own vows, so she sent us over a hundred sample vows we could chose from.

Brooke is absolutely wonderful! She just did a wedding for us in the end of June. She gave us many options to choose from, including letting us ad our own "touch" to the ceremony. Brooke's website is very useful... there are many different ceremonies to choose from and you can even pay with Paypal, just makes a bride's hectic life a little easier!
