"Bonnie made our wedding ceremony one to remember. All of our guests loved her as much as we did. She did an amazing job customizing our ceremony to our specific interests and wishes. We were unsure what we should do for our "unity portion" of our wedding. Should we both light a candle ... mix sand ... we were unsure. Bonnie recommended a Ring Warming ceremony with our parents where they each hold our rings to pass on their years and years of love and adoration - passing all that positive energy to us at the beginning of our marriage. It was a perfect moment in our wedding. I would recommend Bonnie to anyone who is looking for a unique and targeted experience that everyone can enjoy!

"I'm a wedding photographer, and I worked with Bonnie on a wedding this past October. I can't say enough good things! I only found out after the ceremony that she wasn't an actual long-time friend of the bride and groom! She spoke with such genuine affection and took the time to put together a detailed personal ceremony. I've worked with a lot of officiants over the years, and Bonnie is my new favorite!"


"Bonnie has been great every step of the way. At our first meeting with Bonnie, she was so warm, friendly and welcoming. We knew right away that she was a great fit for us. Bonnie was exceptional at our wedding! Many of our guests thought Bonnie had been a friend for years since she made our Ceremony so personable. She told our story so well and made our guests laugh, which was exactly what we wanted. My husband and I truly feel lucky to have worked with Bonnie. Our wedding day is one we will remember forever, and Bonnie was the icing on the cake! Thank you Bonnie for being so great!"

"Thank you so much for your part in making our ceremony so wonderful!  Mike and I had SO many people come up and say how wonderful you were, and how incredible the ceremony was.  It was so great to hear how many people loved how personal it was to who we were as a couple, because that's what we were striving to achieve the whole time, and you nailed it! All the best, and sincerely from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for making our day so memorable!"
