"We needed an officiant at super short notice. We were having a small, standing only ceremony in Solvang, CA. Our guest list was only 12 people. We wanted a short & sweet vow exchange, but we did not write our own vows so we also needed the officiant to provide vows. We asked to keep it fairly traditional, but not super religious.
Fortunately for us, we had a few responses to our last minute request. (Thumbtack rocks!) Dani responded with a quote almost immediately which is huge to me, customer service-wise. We hired her Wednesday morning for a Friday wedding. I actually called her on the drive to CA to touch base with her since we wouldn't have time to meet in person. She was warm and friendly and easy to talk to and work with. She emailed me a copy of the short ceremony (10-15 minute per my request). The ceremony included a couple of blessings and mentions of God. She asked if I wanted to include them or not, and requested approval of the ceremony & vows. My husband is not religious, whereas I have a strong religious background. Our guests were of mixed religious views as well. I thought her ceremony and blessings were perfect so I asked her to include them.
The day of our wedding Dani was absolutely wonderful. She could not have done a better job. Even my non-religious husband said he was glad I kept the "blessings & God-stuff" in our ceremony. From the uber-religious (eek! female clergy?!) to the totally atheist, every single person in our party gave her rave reviews.
I would HIGHLY recommend Dani Antman to anyone who needs a wedding officiant or any other service she offers. "
