    Reverend Rose did an amazing job for our wedding ceremony. Our reading, Irish blessing and vows we perfect. Reverend Rose is a wonderful person with a big heart. We will always remember our wedding day and the great job Reverend Rose did!

  • 5/5 stars June 26, 2014

    Rev Rose was great! Laid-back, friendly, and went along with our humor! She even met up with me afterward to give me a copy of the ceremony video that was taken with her camera. Excellent value also.

  • 5/5 stars April 28, 2014

    Rose consulted with my about a week before the wedding, listened to our rendition of an 'ideal' wedding, and delivered a ceremony that reflected our wishes. She was wonderful.

    Thank you Matthew and Ariel for such a nice review! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to help make your Wedding Day special and for being able to share such a meaningful celebration with you and your loved ones!

  • 5/5 stars November 5, 2013

    Working with Rose was awesome! The script she provided for the ceremony was perfect and we did not change a thing. She was prompt, professional & we felt at ease with her from the first time my husband and I met her. We could not be more thrilled with her services. She obviously loves what she does and we would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding officiant.

    "Happy Dance!" Yes, I love my job and working for such wonderful and excited couples! Thank you Diane and Doug for giving me the opportunity to share your Wedding Day with you!

    My partner and I have been together for over 32 years, so we really thought of our marriage as more of a "formality" and were just going to use a Justice of the Peace. But then we found Rev. Rose. And then we choose the park for the ceremony. And then our friends and family all wanted to come. And then it was a wedding! And believe me, while many of us have been fighting for the right to marry for a very long time, we shouldn't underestimate our right to a wedding, too. It can be just as important. And ours wouldn't have happened without Rev. Rose. Who was perfect. Thanks Rev. Rose! -Gretchen & Lindsey

    Rose W. from Rev. Rose Woodruff replied to this review on November 3, 2013:

    Thank you Gretchen and Lindsey! What a wonderful review! It was truly my honor. I love being given this beautiful opportunity to share such a meaningful and yet historic moment with you both! Thank you!

  • 5/5 stars September 26, 2013

    Rose officiated my partner (now husband - that still sounds strange) and my wedding. It was a small elopement at Orchard's Park and it was wonderful. Rose provides a basic structure for those that have no clue how to proceed, but provides the flexibility to make your ceremony your own. She is beyond friendly, is respectful, and honestly I can not imagine anyone else would have done a better job. I will never need another officiant, but if I did, Rose would be who I would call.

    Rose W. from Rev. Rose Woodruff replied to this review on September 26, 2013:

    Thank you Jamie and Paul! I love working with such wonderful couples and you both were awesome to work with! Thank you for the nice review and I hope the best to you both in all of your future 'Life Adventures' together!

  • 5/5 stars September 26, 2013

    Rose was wonderful! The vows she scripted were very personal and touching, they fit us perfectly! She had amazing response time and professionalism. I would recommend her to anyone getting married; she couldn't have been more perfect.

    Rose W. from Rev. Rose Woodruff replied to this review on September 26, 2013:

    Thank you Brianne and Matt! Brianne, your Wedding was very well thought out and everything looked so romantic, beautiful and unique! Maybe someday you will think about becoming a Wedding Planner! :-) Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be a part of your special day!

  • 5/5 stars August 3, 2013

    Rose was a wonderful officiant, and was genuinely an emotional part of the experience for us. She was expressive and sincere, and we liked her very much. She was very dear to us. I would recommend her highly to anyone.

    Rose W. from Rev. Rose Woodruff replied to this review on August 25, 2013:

    Thank you Tommee and Cat for giving me the honor to be a part of your special Wedding Day as it was very touching and meaningful! I hope the best to you both in all of your future 'Life Adventures' together!

  • 5/5 stars June 2, 2013

    Rose was the perfect match for us. She is friendly and has a warm and peaceful demeanor. She arrived early and was very prepared with her reciting of the script. She was also very quick in responding to emails - we really felt like she was available to help us with any questions. We couldn't have been happier with our choice.

    Rose W. from Rev. Rose Woodruff replied to this review on June 2, 2013:

    Thank you Kathleen and Matt for giving me the opportunity to share such a special and wonderful time in your life with you! I'm so glad you gave me such an honor! I hope the best to you both in all of your future 'Life Adventures' together . . . as I'm sure you both will have many! Enjoy!

  • 5/5 stars April 24, 2013

    She was awesome, she was very helpful and made our day smooth and perfect.

    Rose W. from Rev. Rose Woodruff replied to this review on April 24, 2013:

    Thank you Angela and Chris for your kind words! I had such a nice time getting to know some of your family and friends! Thank you for giving me the honor to officiate your Wedding at the lovely Klineline Park! It was such a wonderful day! I hope the best to you both in your future 'Life Adventures' together!

  • 5/5 stars April 24, 2013

    Rev. Woodruff officiated our wedding on March 21, 2013. It was a beautiful ceremony. When we met with her prior to the big day, she was friendly and profession. She worked with us to help make our day special. I would recommend her as an officiant to any couple.

    Rose W. from Rev. Rose Woodruff replied to this review on April 24, 2013:

    It was truly an honor to officate Max and Amith's Wedding here in Vancouver, WA at the Grant House! I'm also happy that they were allowed to have their loyal pooch with them! Thank you Max and Amith for giving me the opportunity to help make your Wedding Day special! I hope the best to you both in your future 'Life Adventures' together!

  • 5/5 stars October 16, 2012

    Rev Rose Woodruff was our wedding officiant. She was very caring, kept us very well informed, answered all of our questions in a very timely manner, and she was very professional. She met with us before the wedding and spent a good amount of time letting us know what we needed to do and what she would be doing. I appreciated everything she did and would recommend her services to anyone looking for a good, affordable officiant.

    Rose W. from Rev. Rose Woodruff replied to this review on October 16, 2012:

    Thank you Debby and Mike for your review and your kindness! It was a pleasure to work with you and I'm glad to have had this opportunity! I hope the best to you both in your future Life Adventures together!

  • 5/5 stars October 2, 2012

    Excellent wedding officiant. Prompt, professional, caring, Rose knows what she is doing. She was early, stayed a bit after the ceremony was done.
    She was caring, did a good job of listening to us and what we wanted.
    We really appreciated her services, without her, we would not have been able to have our perfect wedding day. Thank you so much. I have no recommendations on how to improve service.

    Rose W. from Rev. Rose Woodruff replied to this review on October 3, 2012:

    Thank you Robert and Katie for giving me the opportunity to help make your Wedding Day special! It was truly an honor and privilege! I hope the best to you two in your future life adventures together!

  • 5/5 stars October 2, 2012

    Rose Woodruff was the wedding officiant at my son's wedding. We couldn't have been happier with Rose's services. Rose is professional, friendly, flexible, affordable, and knowledgable about all aspects of the wedding ceremony. We would definitely recommend Rose to anyone looking for a wedding officiant. Thanks Rose.

    Rose W. from Rev. Rose Woodruff replied to this review on October 3, 2012:

    Thank you Yvonne for such a nice referral! It was truly my pleasure and honor to work with you all! I truly enjoy meeting with and getting to know really nice people even if it's for such a short time! Thank you for giving me the opportunity and I hope the best to you and your family!

  • 5/5 stars September 10, 2012

    We had a wonderful experience with Rose as our wedding officiant. She was easy to talk with and personable. Our wedding came together so quickly it was nice that she contacted us in between the planning and craziness just to check-in and double check that nothing had changed, which I really appreciated. :)
    She provided us with a list/timeline of when couples usually liked to have things done by. I am so glad she gave it to us because I am certain we would have had a lot of last minute planning.
    We also loved that she let us use her camera to record our wedding. I am so thankful for that because pictures aren't the same, especially when I was hidden away when family and friends began to arrive and mingle.
    Thank you Rose for performing a beautiful ceremony! I wish you could have stayed to enjoy the dinner, music, and cake. :)

    Rose W. from Rev. Rose Woodruff replied to this review on September 21, 2012:

    Thank you for such a lovely review! The review you left did not include your name though . . . I wish I knew who's kindness this was! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to help make your Wedding Day special and I hope the best to you and your husband in your future life adventures together!

  • 5/5 stars September 10, 2012

    We would like to say that Rose did a wonderful job with our wedding! She was helpful, flexible and worked with us to create the ceremony that we wanted. Her fee was very reasonable for all that she did to make our day so special! We would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an officiant!! Thank you Rose!

  • 5/5 stars August 16, 2012

    Rev. Rose was great to work with, I would recommend to my friends and family. We were looking for a nonreligious ceremony and Rev. Rose provided us with a beautiful script about love and marriage. In addition, I had many comments from guests that they really enjoyed the ceremony.

    Rose W. from Rev. Rose Woodruff replied to this review on August 16, 2012:

    Stephanie and Dustin had a beautiful wedding at the local 'The Academy Chapel' surrounded by all of their family and friends! It was a beautiful and fun event which reflects the type of people Stephanie and Dustin are! They were thoroughly enjoyable to work with! Thank you Stephanie and Dustin, for giving me the opportunity to help make your Wedding Day special! I hope the best to you both in your future life adventures together!

  • 5/5 stars June 13, 2012

    Reverend Rose was so wonderful to work with. I did not have a large wedding and I had no clue what I was doing. From the moment she contacted me I felt comfortable that everything was going to turn out beautifully. And it did! She was bright and cheery and my whole family loved her, as did I. Thank you Rose for making my dad memorable.

    Rose W. from Rev. Rose Woodruff replied to this review on June 13, 2012:

    I thoroughly enjoyed working with Karen and Ryan Richardson! They have such a sweet family and I am so thankful that I had this opportunity to get to know them a bit and to help make their Wedding Day special!
