Rachel was an absolute dream officiant for my husband and I! We are a goofy, nerdy couple and she really personalized the ceremony to fit who we are. She was very kind, super responsive when emailing, and just an all around consummate professional! October 2023

Rachel took all of our notes and requests and crafted a perfect ceremony script. It was funny and heartfelt and perfectly reflected us and our relationship. She was super professional and kind and made the ceremony go off perfectly. I have been told by many of the guests that the ceremony script was amazing and gladly shared that Rachel composed it just for us. September 2023

Rodney & Snezana

Justin & Cassandra
Rachel responded to my emails promptly and made the process very simple. We loved that we were able to celebrate with our immediate family, the most important people to us. Unfortunately not everyone could attend our destination wedding, so it was really nice to be able to have something small here to celebrate with them. Every thing was seamless! Rachel provided us the script for our ceremony and we were very prepared with our license & rings leading up to the day. We loved our experience with Rachel. She was very sweet, and made us feel so comfortable. I couldn’t have asked for a more memorable day!! August 2023

Easy and straightforward. Rachel Norman was referred to us so we had an advantage there, but the process of confirming her for our event and managing payment was all super smooth through the website. Hard to narrow in on one thing - the guests would be number one. We had a lot of positive feedback from our guests on the ceremony itself though. Rachel did an amazing job and it did not go unnoticed by our attendees. Absolutely. Rachel was awesome. She met with us to ensure everything was in a good spot, she was very collaborative and easy to work with, and added a lot of great ideas to the process. Jun 2023

Rachel fue una oficiante maravillosa y súper linda. Desde el inicio de ella mostró interés y atención, siempre respondiendo nuestras dudas e incluso nos mencionó que ella podría aprenderse una frase en español para poder decirla durante la ceremonia cosa que apreciamos mucho. Sin duda ella hizo que la ceremonia fuera muy especial.

Rachel Norman was amazing, she really rolled with our casual approach (thank you Rachel for your patience!). She was very kind to reassure me when I was feeling anxious about the whole process and the expectations around weddings. September 2022

Paul & George
We had a 70's/80's themed wedding. Rachel (Norman) dressed for the occasion along with the rest of our guests. She helped us compose a customized ceremony for our non-traditional wedding. She made it an memorable and unique experience for everyone! Aug 2022

Anderson & Cecilia
Rachel Young was great, detailed oriented, experienced. She was able to answer a lot of our questions we asked, and others we didn't know to ask. Also she was able to keep the proceedings going in high winds and rocking boat.

Kate & Michael
Rachel Young was lovely to work with. She was flexible and totally happy to help us bring our vision for the wedding to life.

Lianne & Jordan
Rachel Young was exceptional. She made us feel very comfortable right from the start, and she shared several of her ideas with us and together we created a beautiful ceremony that I will never forget. The handfasting ceremony was so special and everyone that attended was in awe with how unique and beautiful it was. Thank you, Rachel!

It was a pleasure to work with Rachel (Young) for our ceremony. We connected by phone initially and in person later, before the wedding. In both interactions, Rachel was genuinely interested in learning our story and understanding more about our relationship and values - importantly, she was also willing to share her experience and love story and even introduced us to her husband. She provided us with some great starting content for our ceremony and was flexible to suggested changes and additions we had and was ready to answer our questions along the way. The day of the wedding went very smoothly and we were very happy! Thank you Rachel!

Shega and Andrew
Rachel Young was the officiant of our dreams. Clear communicator, supportive of our vision and always ready to make great suggestions based on her experience with a diverse array of ceremonies. She has deep respect for the profession and a unifying outlook on humanity and love. Thanks again Rachel!

Rachel Young is a very talented person and very professional in any thing she does. I had the great opportunity of working with her and can tell that whatever you assign her to do you will not have to worry. It will be done on time and perfectly well.
