From choosing the elements in the ceremony to where I should place my hands, Darlene was professional, easy-going, knowledgeable, and will be right by your side every step of the way.

Darlene was truly amazing to work with and really made it easy for us to personalize our wedding ceremony... An impressive feat as we do not consider ourselves to be the most creative couple! We had so ... Read more so many special touches within our ceremony and it flowed effortlessly. Our dog Arrow was a part of our ceremony and he was incorporated so thoughtfully throughout the ceremony including in one of our readings. In addition, we also did the wine box ceremony, and it was such a special touch the way Darlene weaved in its significance as well as the contents that we placed within it. When it came time to deciding what we would do for our vows, Darlene insisted that we added a few lines to make it meaningful and personalized to one another; and reflecting back, we are so glad we did it with her guidance! Our vows were so special and light-hearted to one another without having to go the extra mile to think outside of the box. We received a lot of compliments on how personable Darlene was and how she truly personalized the ceremony to showcase who we are as a couple. Her wedding gift to us is also very meaningful and the sweetest keepsake we could have received from her to remember our wedding ceremony. If you are looking for a easy going and knowledgeable officiant, look no further! Darlene will truly make your day feel unique and special!
