Look no further - you've found the PERFECT officiant.
What an amazing experience my husband and I had with Deidra. I cannot express our gratitude for her professionalism, her attention to detail and overall warmth and joy she infused into our ceremony. (her slightly-softened Australian accent didn't hurt, either)
In fact, she was more aware, organized and on-top of our entire day than our team of wedding planners/designers were. She inquired about details that I suspect made my wedding planners/designers think things through that much better; for which I am forever grateful. She has a wonderful way in which she begins getting to know a couple, and by the end, we felt as if she were part of our family, not someone we had hired. She even recommended our wedding photographer, who had the best photo-journalist sense of style, we could not have been happier.
Pre-wedding day she was incredibly interested in getting to know what makes "us" a couple, and what is important to us - our likes/dislikes, wants, needs, etc. With the knowledge she gained, she gave our ceremony such personal touches that there were few dry eyes in the audience (and alter, I must say).
During the wedding day she is as calm as a cucumber, and made us feel as if there were not a single worry to be had -- which really, there wasn't! She was genuine and welcoming to everyone, and made all in the audience feel right at home.
Several weeks after the wedding, we still had people remarking on the overall fluidity and ease of the day. We credit Deidra in our reply, knowing that without her there, things would not have been as memorable or as touching.
