My name is Pastor Cindy Holda and I am a licensed Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I co-pastor, along with my husband of twenty years, a church in DeKalb, IL where I am under the covering of our church board and the denomination where we serve. I am also a graduate of our denomination's seminary, a member of the American Association of Wedding Officiants, and a member of Wedding Pastors USA.

I have had the joy and honor of serving engaged couples with my husband for the past seven years and I am now performing ceremonies on my own. I am thrilled to walk couples through the ceremony process and I like to follow the Golden Rule when working with couples. I provide one to two pre-ceremony meetings with you so that we can get to know one another and so that we can craft a personalized ceremony to your taste. It is not my desire to deliver a boring, "been-there, done that" service for you, but rather a ceremony which will really fit your personalities and wishes for your special day. I work hard to make sure that you are pleased with every word spoken during your ceremony and I provide you with a script for your approval. I also present to you, on your wedding day, a complimentary Marriage Certificate, which you and two witnesses can sign, as a special keepsake.

I hope that you would consider me for you officiant on your special day. Please visit my website for more information or to contact me to book your date! Read less

I never thought I would find someone who made the ceremony so personal. Cindy did a great job. Went way above and beyond what I expected.

Cindy was absolutely AMAZING! She helped us put together our ceremony and gave us ideas that we hadn't even thought of. She had me excited about the ceremony and it turned out perfect! I can't thank her enough for being a part of our day and making it absolutely perfect.

She was very sweet, super helpful and made the ceremony exactly what we wanted! We had to decide everything from long distance and though I was worried at first, she made sure everything was taken care of. She emailed me many times showing me ideas she had or asking me to review things that she had written to make sure everything was perfect. So glad we chose her to officiate our ceremony :)

I was scared of hiring a "Rent-a-Pastor" online- I know others who've done so and ended up with boring, generic ceremonies. But when I met with Cindy all my fears melted away. She had a great sense of humour and I felt comfortable with her right away. She was attentive to our needs and very flexible. The ceremony itself was absolutely lovely... warm and personal, full of joy, far from generic. I received SO MANY compliments on the ceremony. All my friends and family said it was the best they had attended, that it was unique and beautiful.

In addition, I was impressed by Cindy's prices. While she was not the cheapest I found, she charged much less than other well reviewed pastors/celebrants on wedding wire. She was worth every penny! I would recommend her to anyone.

Cindy officiated my ceremony on August 14, 2010. My husband and I couldn't be more pleased with the ceremony and her service. Cindy was professional and a joy to work with. She offered insightful counseling prior to the wedding day that really helped my husband and I focus on our relationship. The rehearsal ran smoothly and efficiently thanks to her leadership. The ceremony itself was touching - she incorporated our families and our own individual personalities to really help make the ceremony about us as a couple. Cindy truly helped make our wedding day perfect.
