    Absolutely Perfect!

    Christy was absolutely amazing! She went above and beyond in bringing our dream of eloping in Awenda to life. She spent a lot of time getting to know us and crafted a ceremony that really captured our love story and who we are individually and as a couple. On top of the ceremony, Christy and her crew created a beautiful luxury picnic for us and took our gorgeous photos. She was a delight to work with - always available if we needed anything, accommodating any special requests, and providing helpful recommendations when we didn't know where to begin planning. Our perfect day is truly all thanks to her.

    Absolutely Amazing!

    Christy was absolutely incredible! She was so responsive and easy to work with prior to our big day and worked with us to create a custom ceremony. We eloped just the two of us, Christy asked us a few questions before our wedding and then she wrote our love story back for us -bringing us both to laughter and tears. We can’t thank her enough for making our wedding that much more special. It was truly a day we’ll never forget and that is due in large part to Christy’s talent and dedication to her craft.

    Quaint, Intimate, and Memorable Ceremony

    Christy was the most amazing officiant for our wedding. Honestly, it was during the pandemic and our spirits were a bit low due to the poor weather. She was constantly positive and uplifting and helped to make our union a cherished one. In fact, she went so far as to scout out the perfect location on an island with a wonderful gazebo that set the mood perfectly.

    She was accommodating with the words she said during the ceremony. We had asked for it to be non-religious and she delivered it respectfully.

    Christy, thank you for everything you did for us. It was a perfect day, and you helped to make it that way.

    Amazing experience

    Christy is a very intuitive individual who is incredibly compassionate and professional (yes, those things can be used together). She truly takes the time to get to know you and what vision you have for your wedding. In these harder Covid times, safety and health are a high priority of hers. She takes the time to outline everything and there are no hidden details. She has wonderful communication skills and she will set you at ease in no time. Christy has a true understanding of what love, marriage and commitment are. She is flexible and truly puts you first. If you are looking for someone to put that extra touch into your special day, look no further.

    Christy was friendly, flexible and made our speacial day unique!

    Christy was very easy to work with. She helped answer all of our questions and was very flexible with various changes that came up while planning our wedding during a pandemic. She was very friendly and truly got to know us before putting our ceremony together. We got lots of wonderful comments about the ceremony about those in attendance and those who had to watch virtually.

    A kind soul

    Christy is one of the kindest souls I have ever met. I attended a zoom wedding and her energy and kind words brought tears to my eyes. Her professionalism is top shelf. Really in tune with the bride and groom's needs. You wont be dissapointed

    Christy was a wonderful officiate

    It’s hard having your own business and trying to accommodate everyone’s demand. I don’t believe she deserves a 1 star review as the previous person gave her. Christy was wonderful to us and very flexible and accommodating. She wrote a beautiful ceremony geared to our wishes and helped us every step of the way. We appreciate site everything she did for us for our special day and we highly recommend her!
