Testimonials of couples joyfully united in marriage and promised to cherish each other forever.
Reissa was the Officiant at our wedding. It was important for my husband and me to find an Officiant who was non-denominational since neither of us are very religious. Since we didn’t have a close friend or family member who could serve as our officiant, it was very important for us to find someone who was warm and still made the ceremony feel intimate and special. Reissa was perfect for this! The second we met her it felt like we had known her for some time. I felt very comfortable with her and we were able to talk openly about what we wanted for our ceremony.
Reissa was also extremely flexible and allowed us to alter the wording of the ceremony until we were 100% happy. She offered to meet with us as many times as we needed which is unheard of with most Officiants. Best of all, she constantly kept us on track with writing our promises to each other and making sure we get our marriage license on time. This is a huge help through all the chaos during a wedding!
My husband and I were very happy that Reissa was the Officiant for our special day and would recommend her to anyone else. Thanks again for everything!
We got married in June 2012. Reissa was our wedding officiant, and we are very pleased with how she handled the ceremony and helped us preparing it. The ceremony and the reception were held in our garden at our house, and required somewhat special preparation, as we wanted it to be really unique. Reissa was diligent and constructive, she agreed to come to our house prior the wedding day, and she gave us a lot of very useful advice. All along, it was very easy and pleasant to communicate with her. She is a very open-minded person.
We added a lot of our own text and poems to the original text that Reissa provided, and she was very supportive and willing to incorporate our suggestions. It was a real pleasure and fun to work together with her. We were also very happy with how she handled the ceremony. She was very organized and professional. And, although we didn’t have a professional wedding coordinator, everything went smoothly and we had a beautiful and a very unique wedding, just the way we dreamed it would be. We are very grateful to Reissa for all her help and support. We highly recommend her as a wedding officiant.
I would recommend Reissa to any couple looking for a unique, heart-felt, and personalized wedding ceremony. Reissa is so warm and personable – she really did a great job at getting to know my husband and I before our wedding to ensure that our ceremony represented us to its fullest. We had SO many compliments from our guests that our ceremony was the most moving and personalized they had ever been to!
Reissa encouraged my husband and I to write our own vows/messages to read to each other during the ceremony and I’m so glad that we did! My husband and I are forever grateful to Reissa for making our wedding ceremony so special and memorable!
Rohn and I would like to thank you for the beautiful ceremony you performed at our wedding. It was absolutely perfect, utterly moving, and filled with meaning. It was so wonderful to be up there looking into each other’s eyes and feeling the absolute truth of everything you said. It was such an emotional ride. The feeling of love and commitment and excitement were overwhelming.
There was almost an immediate sense that you connected with what it means to be marrying someone in a same-sex ceremony. You helped make the whole process easy. Where we envisioned awkwardness, you pointed us to people who were welcoming, and you understood the significance of what a same-sex marriage means to those getting married. You will always be part of a beautiful memory for us. We will gladly recommend you to anyone we know who is tying the knot. Thank you again.
