Ruth was AMAZING. She is such an easy person to talk to and oh so helpful through the entire process. She arrived early to the ceremony, and did a beautiful job! I highly reccomend using Ruth for your wedding!! She provided a wedding workbook that allowed for me and my now husband to customize our entire ceremony script. Thank you sooo much Ruth, for everything ❤️.

We were so happy with how our wedding worked out. Ruth was so kind and wonderful throughout the entire planning process and the ceremony. We loved the unique workbook she gave us that allowed us to make the ceremony unique to our liking. We honestly couldn’t have asked for a better officiant. Thank you for everything 🥰

My husband, Rick, and I were about to start planning a big day wedding when Covid hit last year. We hadn't put any deposits down for any vendors and our families are spread across the united states, so we made the decision to elope and have a small gathering afterwards to celebrate sometime in 2021. Long story short, we were unable to get an appointment for our already chosen date at the court house so I rushed here and found Ruth at the top of my search list. It was almost too good to be true but after chatting here I had to look no further! My now hubby and I spoke with her on the phone the same evening and it was like talking to family member we had known for ages. She was able to be there for us on VERY short notice she was delighted to help us in surprising our nearest and dearest friends by marrying us at the party in front of them (since none of them knew of the courthouse mishap!) Ruth has a beautiful way with words and her wedding workbook that she provides meets the needs of couples from all walks of life. Words cannot express how thankful we are to have had her there on our special day :)

Details: Elopement • Non-denominational (mentions God) • 21 - 50 guests • Help writing vows will not be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Officiant does not need to be present at rehearsal
