Such a wonderful experience

Carol was terrific. Her intro/ our story was perfect. The service ran smoothly and had more than a few of us with tears in our eyes. Would recommend 100%

Carol was absolutely amazing and brought our wedding up a notch! Our daughter (3.5y.o.) was reaching for the microphone, crying. laughing, wanting to be picked up in the middle of the ceremony, basically whatever you can imagine a toddler that age wanting to do to be included:-) Carol went along with things and make sure she felt included, she let her speak into the mic occasionally, asked her questions, etc. and the ceremony was perfect as a result. So many people commented afterwards on what a great job she did and how exceptionally well things went. Carol was also very flexible with us having to change to date, twice. Thank you so much Carol for helping make this day perfect:-)

The best officiant we could have asked for 🤍

We worked with Carol from 2020 until our wedding last week in 2022. She was an absolute pleasure to work with from the start! She helped us with every step along the way, and was beyond flexible when we had to postpone our original wedding day due to the pandemic.

When we met Carol for our signing, which we chose to do privately with witnesses, we knew we had made the right choice in choosing Carol immediately. She was energetic, welcoming and kind.

At our ceremony, she helped calm our nerves and delivered exactly what we were looking for, a fun easy going ceremony.

We are very grateful that we’ve crossed paths with Carol, she is amazing!!!

Highlight of our wedding day

We don't even know how to begin to describe how lucky we were to have Carol perform our wedding ceremony. We hadn't given much thought to the ceremony details before our last minute, mini wedding was thrown together this year instead of waiting for our postponed date. Carol helped us create a vision of what we wanted and then executed it flawlessly, it was so personalized and perfectly "us". She helped us realize that this was really the most important part of the day and made us SO excited to be getting married in 2020 anyways! We only had 16 guests and we had at least 10 people comment on how amazing the ceremony was - and Carol herself is an absolute pleasure to be around! We honestly can't thank her enough - she's the best decision we could have made for our wedding day!

Highly recommended

Carol was a truly fantastic officiant. She was super accommodating when we had multiple schedule changes thanks to COVID and very responsive to our requests. The ceremony was amazing. She was able to inject some humor into it, which was exactly what we had hoped. We had lots of compliments from our guests about how wonderful she was, and a few or our engaged friends grabbed her business cards.
Would highly recommend to anyone.

Phenonmenal Officiant!

Aaron and Sara married on January 26th, 2019

Carol was our officiant for our small and intimate wedding ceremony last weekend and she was amazing! Friends and family alike commented on how nice and friendly she was and how heartfelt her words were. The laughter throughout the ceremony was non-stop and she made Aaron and I feel comfortable and calm. She was very flexible and accommodating with us and was very professional. Pricing was very reasonable as well. Choosing Carol to marry us was the best decision we made and we would without a doubt recommend her.

Wonderful ceremony!

Carol officiated our wedding and she was perfect! My mother even commented, saying what a wonderful job she did, and how she set the tone for the rest of the wedding. It was a beautiful ceremony, complimented by our very personable officiant!

We were extremely impressed with the service provided. Our ceremony was very simple, at our request, and the quick response time was very comforting, being that most our planning was somewhat last minute. Our officiant from Royal Weddings was exceptionally patient, and accommodating, and our guests had only pleasant things to say, at the end of our day.
