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.

We couldn't have picked a more kind and caring Officiant. Cheryl was exactly what we were looking for. She had plenty of good ideas for the ceremony and had no problem incorporating our own ideas. The price was absolutely unbeatable, and rather than "get what you pay for", we got more than we could have hoped for!

Thank you Cheryl!

Cheryl was amazing. We had just shy of 3 weeks notice for a last minute civil ceremony on the Country Club Plaza on the Saturday following Thanksgiving Day. I contacted her by email and she responded within the hour saying that she'd be happy to be a part of our special day and that she could arrive at the Raphael Hotel where our service was to take place at any time convenient for us that evening. We further corresponded by email, text and phone calls to touch base. The day before the ceremony, Cheryl called to advise she had fallen and hurt her ankle the weekend before but that she was walking on crutches and could stand for our ceremony without them. She didn't want us to freak out because she was showing up on crutches and she also wanted to ask if it was okay to bring her helpers along who would drive her to our location and assist her if necessary with her things. We were so glad she arrived in good spirits and even though she was wearing a boot over her ankle, she looked fabulous and professional. She put us both at ease and the "script" for the ceremony, which she sent to us by email for review, was beautiful and touching. Her fee was extremely reasonable even though we expected her fee to be higher due to the holiday weekend. She was very personable and her sister and brother-in-law were so very nice and they took photos of our ceremony as well. We couldn't be happier and really recommend Cheryl to anyone who wants a meaningful and special celebrant at their wedding!

Thank you so much for the kind words Cindy. I truly do what I do out of passion and not for the money. I love meeting wonderful couples such as you and Dwane and do my best to make your day as Special as I can. Thanks for understanding and welcoming my "helpers". I remember most of the ceremonies I do, but yours will be one I will truly remember fondly. Best Wishes to you and Dwane. It is easy to see how truly in love you are. Let that love be what gets you through life's experiences forever.

Rachel was great! We only met her for the first time to decide our ceremony, but just spending that time with her it felt like we had known her longer. She was always available to answer our questions by phone or email promptly. There was never any pressure to choose any one type of ceremony over another. She showed up to our venue on time and dressed professionally. She performed our ceremony to our specifications. By the end of the wedding ceremony I felt that Rachel was a big part of our lives. She shared in a special day with us. We have included her in our wedding album. We could not have asked for a better person to have performed our ceremony with love and tenderness! I think she even had a few tears in her eyes at the end. White Dove Ceremonies fees were very reasonable you can tell they enjoy what they do.

I had a fabulous experience with White Dove Ceremonies and I would strongly recommend it for your wedding. Although we didn't want a religious ceremony, we really wanted something very special, the ceremony she prepared for us was very sweet!!!! We didn't do any rehearsal, Cheryl was flexible and kind enough to come earlier to explain us what to do. She made the process very easy, she prepared everything and helped us having a beautiful ceremony that truly represented us as a couple and we couldn't be happier with the results. We really felt like a family friend was performing the ceremony for us. She was wonderful.Thanks again Cheryl!

Cheryl was very accommodating to both Blake and I. When we first met with her she was very prepared and gave us many options for our ceremony and always gave us an option to do what we wanted. We both felt very comfortable with Cheryl and trusted that she would be great the day of our wedding. At the rehearsal of the wedding both Cheryl and her husband were very helpful and knowledgeable on what they were doing and made things run very smoothly. The day of the wedding was a little bit of a blur to me but Cheryl ran the ceremony with no mistakes and overall it was a wonderful day. I would recommend Cheryl to anyone getting married in the future!

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.
