  • Patti did a wonderful job throughout our wedding process and at the ceremony. She was always responsive, checked in with myself and my mom on how things were going, and made the rehearsal and day of the ceremony go very smoothly yet still had fun and joked with us and my bridal party. It is very important to have a great officiant- I have attended some weddings and wondered if the officiant was more nervous than the couple! But she knows what she's doing! Our ceremony felt intimate and personal yet still light and happy. I would definitely recommend Patti to anyone for their big day!

    Melanie, thank you so much for the kind words. Wedding days can get so stressful and I really try to make sure you get to be "bride" and enjoy your day and let me take care of rehearsal and ceremony. I wish you both every happiness!
