Our first meeting was great - she let us pick what parts we liked in the ceremony and customized it to us. It wasn't until 30 days before the wedding that I realized I absolutely regretted choosing her as our officiant. When I asked her if she would be able to make it to our rehearsal dinner, she claimed I told her there was no rehearsal. In her responses, she was very unprofessional and accusing that it was my fault that she made other plans; she was not willing to accommodate to the plans and therefore did not rehearse before the wedding. We had not run through the ceremony and that added so much stress. After the ceremony she was in such a rush to get out of there that she insisted the witnesses had to sign right away, which really held up the pictures and the timeline. I did not even see her after the ceremony which gave me the impression that she just wanted to get paid and get out.
As the bride, I never felt like she put us or our wedding day as a priority. The way she communicated with me made me feel uncomfortable and like it was inconvenient for her to come to our wedding. Further proof of her unreliability is that she did not file our marriage license with the county until the last day possible.
I am sad that something as special as our wedding ceremony had so much stress associated with it. I would definitely not recommend her as an officiant.

Just to clarify, when we first met the bride indicated there would be NO rehearsal and I told her the fee was based on that. When she decided to have a rehearsal with only a short notice, I told her I had made other plans and while I would have been happy to be there, I wouldn't be able to make it at the time she requested due to the distance I had to travel to get there during rush hour. I told her if I did make it to the rehearsal I would not charge her any additional amount, even though I had every right to do that. I have every email correspondence and can't find where I was "unprofessional". As far as the signing and leaving right away...that is what I normally do and have had no other complaints. I don't stay for the receptions so I prefer that the signing of the license be done so that I can get out of the way. I mailed the marriage license the following day, so am not sure why she claimed I waited until the last day to send it. I am very sorry that she was so unhappy with my services...she never indicated that to me in any way before, during or after the ceremony. She said she was fine with running through the ceremony herself and had a co-officiant (friend of hers that read part of the ceremony) helping also, so I am very confused why she is so upset. I thought she had a beautiful wedding and her guests afterward told me it was lovely. I didn't see her afterwards because the wedding party went to have pictures taken.

We knew Cheryl was the right fit from the start. She replied quickly, was willing to be flexible, and had no objections to our requests. She guided us through creating our ceremony, had great suggestions, and fulfilled every promise. She went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable both before and during our ceremony and we were pleased with the value of her service. We thank Cheryl deeply! Our ceremony was heartfelt and silly, as we wished!

My husband and I came to Cheryl with less than 30 days until our wedding and were very lucky that she had an opening for the time we needed her (of course in the middle of wedding season)! Within' the same week of contacting her we had an appointment to meet her at her home to go over what we wanted for our ceremony. Going in, we really had no idea! Cheryl made us feel comfortable and had MANY well thought-out and organized options for our wedding. She went through everything step-by-step, and when my husband and I were leaving we both said in the car that we knew we made the right decision going with Cheryl. She showed up at our rehearsal the night prior early so she could meet everyone as they were coming in and get a feel for our venue. Then on our big day, she made our ceremony absolutely flawless! We heard nothing but great things about her, how clear she was in her speaking and how she really seemed almost like a close friend. Thank you so much for all you did, Cheryl!!

From the first meeting to the wedding day, Cheryl brought an organization and professionalism that gave us the ceremony we wanted. She invited us into her house and spent ample time guiding us through the structural options for the ceremony; by giving us the ability to choose which words and sentiments we conveyed to our guests, Cheryl allowed us to personalize our day. After the wedding, we were also excited to find that Cheryl had printed out a written copy of the entire ceremony, yet another way for us to remember the day! Cheryl's willingness to adapt to our requests along with her professional attention to detail kept the day running smoothly.

Cheryl was very unprofessional. She talked about herself more than us at the first appointment, she booked two events at the same time, did not put everything we discussed in the ceremony script, and then didn't make all the changes we requested. The last two pages of the the script were actually from someone else's wedding - names and all! When we very politely and respectfully expressed our concerns, she got very defensive, denied she had done anything we said, and requested that we find a new officiant...less than two weeks before the wedding! Needless to say, I would not recommend her to anyone.

White Dove Ceremonies responded with the following comments:

While I try to please everyone I work with, and have a very good track record with the couples I work with, I tried to make the corrections to their ceremony document, but the errors they wanted corrected were grammatical (which no one would see since it was the script I would be reading from). They changed lowercase letters to uppercase, etc. I always use scripts from other ceremonies as a base for the new script and if the names did not get changed in the beginning drafts, I always read through the document very carefully before printing to make any final changes. I am sorry that they were not happy, but this was a case of "you can't please some people". I asked that they call me so we could discuss the misunderstandings, made all the corrections to the document and then told them if they still weren't happy it might be a good idea to find another officiant. I was more than willing to talk to them to try to work things out.

I found White Dove Ceremonies on weddingwire.com and reached out to Cheryl for an inquiry. She was very responsive and very, very easy to deal with. When we met for our pre-ceremony meeting it was like working with someone we had known forever. She was also kind enough to do our rehearsal for us as well. She ensured everyone knew exactly what they were supposed to be doing and where they were supposed to be on our big day. Thanks so her, our ceremony went off without a hitch. Cheryl was more than an officiant on our big day, she was part of the family. We truly appreciate all the little extras she did to ensure we had the perfect day and one we will remember always. We would recommend her over and over and over again.
