We hired Benita to celebrate our wedding in Houston on September 30th, 2018. I have to say we hired her less than 2 weeks before the wedding and she did everything to plan our perfect ceremony and have us approve all the details before the big day. We decided not to meet her personally before the wedding as we were busy those days but the email communication was more than enough for Benita to tailor a ceremony that was perfect for us. The day of the wedding she arrived promptly, in professional attire and with the script of our ceremony printed out with all the details we had requested. She even clarified how to pronounce names before the ceremony started to avoid awkward mispronunciations during the ceremony. She also filed our marriage certificate with the county clerk and we have already received it back in less than 2 weeks. We would definitely recommend her to any one looking for a wedding officiant.Oct 10, 2018Verified
Benita was, by far, the best of our vendors to work with! She was professional, well-mannered, and handled changes quickly on the spot! We selected Benita to be our celebrant less than a month out from our wedding date and she met and exceeded our expectations. She gave us a few readings to choose from and directed us to her pinterest page as well as website to get ideas for vows and other things. We had a rough draft sent to us and the final draft revised within 24 hours. This woman is amazing! I cannot say it enough! Something I thought was particularly unique about Benita was that even though she is a Humanist, she was 100% okay with having a family or friend do a Christian reading (we did not have one, but the option was made available to us). Many Christian officiants would balk at the idea of using a secular poem or reading in their ceremonies. Her voice is pleasant and calming and she carries herself with such poise. My husband and I never once had a doubt about Benita's ability to perform well. She worked with a faulty sound system and last minute changes without a hitch. I will be recommending her to some of my friends who are getting married. She really made our night special and I am over the moon!Nov 7, 2016Verified
Benita is an amazing women! We had a very simple ceremony but she took care it very detail and thoughtfully. She had amazing words and communicated well with us. She presented in nice outfit and always smile. She was also willing to help me for an extra offer. We're happy and satisfied with her service. If you're looking for a beautiful, nice and sweet officiant, she'll be your choice.Dec 23, 2016Verified
