Weddings by Ariel
Ariel was a FANTASTIC officiant. Her remarks were extremely personal and her professionalism is beyond compare- we had some serious microphone problems (from our DJ) and she handled the situation flawlessly, continuing the ceremony with good humor, grace, and completely unfazed. I can not recommend her enough to anyone looking for a dynamic, personable, and professional officiant (and she is completely bilingual in Spanish to boot)!
Ariel did such a wonderful job as our wedding officiant! She was so easy to work with and really took the time to learn about my fiance and myself. The ceremony she wrote for us was romantic, sweet, and very personal. She has a great presence and was very clear and easy to understand. Even my grandmother who has to wear hearing aids said that she could completely understand the ceremony and thought it was beautifully written. Ariel is also multi-lingual and speaks Spanish fluently which is a huge plus. Many of our guests commented to us afterwards that she was the best wedding officiant they had ever seen and that our ceremony was one of the most touching. She was amazing!
I'm so happy Ariel was our wedding officiant! My family only speaks spanish, so it was necessary to have a bilingual ceremony. Ariel did an excellent job combining both languages (without repeating the same text) in the ceremony. We worked together on defining what was our dream ceremony: she suggested great ideas, she was very flexible with all what we wanted, she was really nice and friendly and incorporated wonderfully our personal touch.
She is really professional and prepared. She also helped my husband with some last minute things (although it was not her job!).
Our ceremony was magical! I wouldn't change anything. Ariel made it possible :)
Like most brides, I was really looking forward to my wedding day. However, the ceremony part loomed an essential but not not focal part. I was taken totally by surprise when it became one of my favorite and most meaningful memories. Even though everything else went the way I'd hoped and the party wore on beyond the patience of the DJ, I was absolutely blown away by our nuptials (as were several others). Ariel took an incredible amount of time and interest to create a wedding where I really felt that all our guests no matter where they were coming from gained a true sense of our story and approach to love. More importantly, everyone participated (not in some hokey way) in making the ceremony a shared experience and as they should, became part of our story. When we say thank you for sharing our wedding day with us we mean it. We are so grateful to Ariel for giving us this privilege! Amelia & Scott Findley
Ariel took a lot of time to learn what was really important to my wife and I as she was planning our ceremony. She asked many questions, and incorporated personal touches that made it far from generic, and very much, us. Thanks for everything Ariel!
I am an experienced multilingual wedding officiant. I have really enjoyed performing bilingual Spanish/English ceremonies and am open to blending cultures, traditions, and languages to make ceremonies that reflect the diverse nature of today's couples. The ceremony is a central piece to the wedding, the words that are spoken and the promises that are made in front of so many witnesses is the binding contract that a couple makes. Making those words meaningful and personalized for each couple is my goal. Generally, the ceremonies that I perform blend a lot of romantic sentiment with a touch of the light-hearted.
I would like to help you create a wedding ceremony that truly reflects who you are. My main aim is to transform your vision for your wedding ceremony from a dream into a reality. I feel passionately about my job and like to work together with couples to create something that is meaningful and memorable for everyone.
