I had the unfortunate situation of finding out I was moving out of a state just 2 months before my wedding so much of my last minute planning (which included my officiant) was done over the phone and internet. After interviewing about 5 different officiants I knew, within 5 minutes that I wanted to work with Nan. She has a great speaking voice, she's clear, and was very calm and composed even though I was a bit of a frantic mess. I wrote my own ceremony, but the other ceremonies she sent me were also beautiful and heartfelt, and if I hadn't had such specific things I needed on mine I would have happily used some of the examples she sent me. She worked out well for my family, which tends to be boisterous and hard to settle down EVEN at a solemn occasion like a wedding. She came extremely well prepared and didn't stumble over any of the words (which I've seen numerous officiants do at my friend's wedding) and was a genuinely nice and lovely person to work with. Also, since I was planning this thing from out of town, I also wanted to add that she was very easy to get a hold of and returned all of my e-mails and calls within 24 hours of sending them; we all know that reliability is a huge factor!. I would recommend her, with gusto, to anyone who needs an officiant.

We were married by Nan on March 30th of this year and she did an GREAT job!! When I was researching Marriage Officiates, there were plenty to pick from. Once I checked out Nan’s website at ceremoniesbynan.com, I was hooked. Nan was great at consulting with us to ensure all of the details were addressed. I was confident that she had it under control but she was patient with us so we felt comfortable that everything would occur just as we wanted (and it did!), She was extremely helpful in providing us samples of other ceremonies that we used to write out own vows, getting ideas from her material and adding our own specifics to make it “our” ceremony. Nan was very good at listening to us and determining exactly what type of ceremony we wanted and then she provided us with many ideas to enhance our ceremony. And it must have worked because we received many compliments after the ceremony about how beautiful yet fun the wedding ceremony was. I’m sure there’s many fine Marriage Officiates out there, but if you select Nan, you’ll be confident in the knowledge that she’s got it 100% under control. Good luck on your special day!

Three months later, our wedding guests are still telling us how beautiful, unique and memorable our ceremony was. We just keep hearing, "Most receptions are fun, but what I will remember most about your wedding was the ceremony." My now-husband and I had the hardest time figuring out who would officiate our wedding. We have different religions between and amongst our two families, which made planning the ceremony a daunting task. Finally, Don at the Rusty Pelican recommended Nan as an officiant who could help us make our families feel respected and us feel relaxed, and Nan did those things and more. She provided enough structure to take the stress off but let us customize as much as we wanted to. She spoke with us on the phone multiple times, since we were planning the wedding long distance, and she was so flexible with our rehearsal plans for our large bridal party. We can't recommend her enough!
