Reverend Denise was a wonderful wedding officiant. I knew as soon as I met her that I wanted her to officiate our wedding. Rev. Denise works with you and your budget to offer the type of ceremony you want. We were able to pick and choose the parts of the ceremony we liked out of the many that she provided for us; for example, we got to choose how we wanted to say our vows, what readings we wanted (she gave us tons of ideas to choose from), and how we wanted her to pronounce us at the end. We even did a cute bubble blessing at the end of the ceremony. Also, we were able to rent from her a very pretty lighted arch for our ceremony.
Rev. Denise was very professional and got to our wedding ceremony 30 minutes early. Her presence was very calming, and she was very reassuring throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend her.
We couldn't have asked for a better Officiant, Denise made everything so relaxed and easy, we had no worries on our wedding day :)
Can't say enough good things! Everything was very professional. The assistant was awesome and everyone was very accomodating to my needs. Emails and phone calls were returned in a very timely manner, I never had any doubts about anything regarding the wedding (time, place, papers, vows, etc.). 1 out of 10 I would give an 11 overall! Everything went smoothly and was perfect!!!!
Reverend Denise Blackman was professional, helpful, and friendly throughout our planning process. She made suggestions, listened to what we wanted for our ceremony, and personalized every word for us. I would recommend her to everyone looking for an excellent speaker to officiate their wedding.
With the ceremony package we chose, a coordinator was included for the rehearsal and wedding day. She was professional, friendly, and organized. She put the entire wedding party at ease. It was great to have her guidance behind the scenes while Reverend Denise was up at the front of the aisle waiting for us to approach.
As a side note, we were not looking for any sort of religion to be included in our ceremony, but we didn't want it to sound as if it was once religious but had gotten watered down with God removed. It honestly turned out perfect. We had countless guests tell us afterwards that it was the best ceremony they had ever witnessed. Reverend Denise will perform your ceremony however you would like it without pushing anything that does not fit you and your partner personally, religious or otherwise.
Reverend Denise was terrific! She offered us many different programs to choose from starting with the traditional to the more fun and relaxed. We chose the fun, relaxed program and she personalized it for us. Everyone enjoyed the ceremony because of the light-hearted vows and we couldn't keep the smiles off of our faces.
The officiant should be booked as soon as possible to insure that your wedding date is available.
