We used Deb as an officiant for a wedding in Three Oaks Michigan. Deb was exceptional, she was professional and extremely personable. She emailed us ceremony examples to help us with exactly what we wanted for the ceremony all the while keeping it unique as to the bride and groom. She was available for any questions throughout the planning right up to the day of the wedding. She was amazing and I highly recommend her.

My husband and I feel very fortunate to have found Deb on Thumbtack. We became interested after reading her rave reviews and we can now say with confidence that she lived up to all the kind words people have said about her. She is extremely personable and was helpful every step of the way in preparing the perfect ceremony for our wedding. Deb was very responsive with any communication and always got back to us within the same day. Another selling point for Justin and I was her long history of working in academia, giving her vast experience in public speaking. She truly did a fantastic job in preparing us for our big day during the rehearsal and ensuring the entire ceremony ran smoothly. We have nothing but positive feedback regarding her services. We highly recommend her to other couples looking for a wedding officiate that will provide a customized ceremony.

Deb was magnificent! We worked with Deb long distance as we hired her based on the reviews made from other couples. She sent us samples of ceremonies from prior marriages she officiated. We combined, tweaked and made our ceremony tailored to who we are as a couple. Deb performed the ceremony to perfection. Upon meeting for the first time the week before our wedding, it was like meeting an old friend. Our day was perfect, the ceremony heartfelt and was a true representation of us as a couple. I highly recommend Deborah as an officiant.

Deborah Locklear was a phenomenal and wonderful officiate for our wedding! Even before we committed to using her, she was making suggestions, making calls for information on our behalf with no guarantee of the job. She was kind, very professional, and more concerned with our happiness and joining us together than her fee, which by the way was extremely reasonable! My new wife and I heartily recommend her to anyone seeking a warm and memorable and loving ceremony to celebrate the beginning of their new lives. Thank you Deborah for making our day very special!
