Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: As an Ordained Minister and Certified Ritual Facilitator, I will work with you to custom create the wedding ceremony that perfectly fits you and your beloved. Drawing upon the great spiritual traditions as well as contemporary secular writings, I will provide you with inspirations and ideas to create the ceremony that honors both of you and your family and/or attendees. We can plan a simple, short and sweet ceremony with just the basics, or we can co-create a longer ceremony with readings and unique rituals that have meaning to you. My goal is for you to feel comfortable, at ease, supported, seen, and 100% happy with my services. I will get to know you and will enjoy sharing some fun, special stories about your love. What your ceremony looks like is entirely up to you both and I will guide that process and offer you ideas and suggestions. Christian ceremonies welcome as are non-religious or spiritual ceremonies. ❤️ I offer affordable packages for elopements and full wedding services. Reach out and we can have a quick free consult to see what you’re looking for!

Wedding Officiant

Rev. Deshna was absolutely amazing for our wedding. She spent time to help us review and made sure she covered all topics that we wanted. The entire time we were nervous she helped keep us calm and you could not choose a better officiant.

William and I found Reverend Deshna really close to our wedding date October 10, 2020 as all of our previous plans had to change due to the global pandemic. With many interviews scheduled, we were stressed with the re-planning of our entire wedding. Reverend Deshna was kind, patient and communicated with us thoroughly. William and I were very pleased and felt immense comfort during our entire process. We felt peace and a sense of direction finally! Reverend Deshna helped us through the entire process from marriage license to I do. This was very helpful to us. On our wedding day; Reverend Deshna was very accommodating, understanding and highly professional. Reverend Deshna curated and created our ceremony wording through questions answered previously through our interview process. Our guest, William and I were blown away with how beautifully she spoke during our ceremony. Reverend Deshna was soft spoken but heard, thoughtful and charismatic. We will never forget her words! William and I are incredibly grateful we got to have Reverend Deshna officiant our wedding ceremony. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND her to any couple wanting to tie the knot with the love of their lives!!! She was wonderful to work with from start to finish. Thank you Reverend Deshna, we very much appreciate you!!!

Deshna was an amazing wedding officiant and was well prepare. She makes everyone feel welcomed and has a heart warming vibe. She gave us the ceremony we were looking for and took the time getting to know my husband and I. She also arrived 15 minutes early to make sure everything was ready. It was a pleasure working with her, I highly recommend her!

Rev. Deshna is AMAZING!! She guided us through the wedding process with blissful ease and clearly prepared us for what to expect on our big day.
