    Darlene was very personable & professional

    We would like to say that Darlene made our ceremony extra special by giving us options as to what kind of ceremony we preferred she took the time to get to know us personally prior to our wedding day. She was punctual & professional, friendly & made me feel comfortable & honored to be marrying my best friend. Thank you so very much Darlene. Be blessed & stay safe.

    Beautiful and Soulful- Professional and Kind

    Darlene is such an amazing person and officiant. She really is a wonderful professional who puts the added personalization to your wedding ceremony to make it special and not just the same like many "I do" ceremonies. She was helpful and put us at ease. Can't refer her enough!

    Rev. Darlene Murray's reply:

    I am so thankful for the honor of being a part of your day. So much love was present one could not help shed tears of joy. I suspect we shall see each again for more joy. Lots of love to you all! Thank you

    We Highly recommend !

    We loved our ceremony. We asked for something very casual and short, which Darlene respected and gave us exactly what we wanted. Very nice and responsive! Our dogs barked at Darlene during the ceremony, which made everyone laugh! We had a great time and would do the same type of ceremony over and over again!

    Not Recommended

    Darlene is personable and very friendly upon meeting and speaking with over the phone, however.... I am very disappointed with her professionalism and services.

    Darlene did not show up for the rehearsal and only called to inform me that she would not be showing up at 3:58 when she was to scheduled for our rehearsal at 4:00pm!
    Darlene did not follow the order of services correctly and forgot to seal our marriage with a kiss and instead had us sign the marriage license first. Then when it came time to announce us as a couple she announced us as “Mr & Mrs Calling” our last name is Couling pronounced COOLING. We went through pronounciation....

    Anyways, don’t waste your time and ruin your ceremony with this one. We got our outcome, we are married..., but what a stressful mix up of events.

    Ceremonies with the loving Touch

    I have known Reverend Darlene Murray for over 20 years and she has always been honest, reliable and hardworking with a strong attention to detail. Her warmth and compassion has always been two of her greatest qualities that now her Brides and Grooms get to experience. As a professional Wedding Specialist I would highly recommend Reverend Murray to oversee one of the most important days of your lives.

    a beautiful ceremony!

    Darlene is the reason our ceremony was as beautiful and meaningful as it was! Everything was very easy and effortless from first messaging her, to meeting up shortly after to get to know each other and go over details. She incorporated all of our requests and made them her own! She made it a point to arrive early and came to the rehearsal the day before which gave us confidence in the ceremony running smooth from start to finish. We are thankful for a ceremony we will never forget! Thank you so much Darlene!

    Rev. Darlene Murray's reply:

    Awe! Thank you for choosing me for such a beautiful moment in your life. I wish you so many Blessings; May the sun shine warm upon your face, forever.

    Uses wrong name x2

    Officiant was pleasant enough, however called my fiance by the wrong name TWICE during our wedding ceremony. Not acceptable. She was also extremely shakey.... Like having a bad come down or dehydrated.... The ceremony didn't go as I would have hoped.
