Today I will marry my friend, the one I will live with dream with and love

A Love Letter to all of my brides and grooms.

Who I am and why am I different from other Officiants and Ministers?

I have a passion about what I do. I want to get to know the couple and make sure we are the right fit. If a couple want a wedding ceremony where the Officiant reads from a little black book and uses the same wedding ceremony for each couple then I am not a good fit for them.

I strive to make my couples ceremony a ceremony that reflects their love story, their unique personalities, and most of all the love that they have for one another.

Your wedding ceremony is a romance, a love story that started some time ago. Maybe years ago, and now is culminating into a breathtaking love story that captures the love you share, with a personalized wedding ceremony. For all to see and hear on your wedding day.

This is “Your day” your wedding day. A joyous occasion as you are finally joined together as man and wife. A day to celebrate with your family and friends present to witness your ceremony and then celebrate with you.

My desire is to help you craft an awesome wedding ceremony that will be long remembered by you, your family and friends for years to come.

My reviews from previous couples tell me that my couples love the fact that I wanted to get to know them. Not to be a distant Officiant /Minister.

We all have different personalities, which makes each of us unique.

So do find an Officiant/Minister that you can relate to. Who will listen to your hearts desires, who will answer your questions.

And then craft for you the wedding of your dreams.

We at Weddings by Christobel strive to make this happen for you. We are learning every day and gleaning new ideas and concepts to make “Your” wedding ceremony the wedding of a life time ~ for “You”.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon,

Fondest Love,

Christobel E.

Christobel is an amazing officiant! She is very friendly and easy to work with. She can be traditional or accommodating to your needs. She is energetic and is different from the norm. Christobel is such a wonderful speaker. She has a way with words and can make the ceremony feel very personal and intimate. She is punctual and emails often to verify meetings and makes sure everything is to your liking. Our guests absolutely loved her! They thought the ceremony was romantic and beautiful. We love Christobel dearly and would recommend her for your wedding. You will not regret it...and you will love her dogs. :)

Dear Christina, Thank you for your wonderful review. It is so kind of you. We had such a heart to heart connection and crafted together your dream wedding. It was awesome from start to finish. A fairy tale in the making that came true on November 28th 2014. I loved being with you and your family and friends. We had so many compliments. But without you both none of this would have been possible. I love you both and can't wait to see those pictures.

From the moment we met Christobel we knew that she HAD to officiate our wedding. One of the 1st things she said to us was that our ceremony will be unique and "out of the box". It was...and so was she.
Christobel is professional and very personable. She took the time to get to know us before she created our beautiful and unique ceremony.
I highly recommend her! You couldn't find a better officiant out there to pronounce you man and wife.

Her contact in the lead up to the wedding was superb and the ceremony she wrote us was incredibly moving. We had so many people complementing how much they enjoyed her and the ceremony. I would recommend Christobel incredibly highly and thank you for making our day so special.

The wedding was truly one of a kind and in large part due to the phenomenal officiating by Christobel!

It was beautiful from start to finish, and all of our friends have said that they have never seen or heard more beautiful words. We are glad that the wedding is over, but would love for Christobel to record a children's book for us so that our children (when we get around to that) will also be impacted by the power of her voice and the words that come out of it!

Thanks for the memories Christobel and thanks for the lovely ceremony

It was truly a ceremony for the record books! Her words were so meaningful and loving, everyone that attended loved every second.
