Nicki was such a delight to work with! We had great communication leading up to the big day and she was super helpful at the rehearsal. On the day of my wedding, I forgot to bring my marriage license (whoops!) and Nicki was more than accommodating to get them signed later that evening after the reception. She is amazing at what she does and I recommend her to any couple looking for an officiant.Jun 16, 2019VerifiedCelebrations's reply

I am so glad that we had Nicki as our wedding officiant. She was always quick to respond to our emails and made sure our ceremony went according to plan. Nicki was a pleasure to work with, and we had a beautiful ceremony thanks to her. She is the best, I would 100% recommend to everyone!Jul 6, 2017VerifiedCelebrations's reply
Such a pleasure to be there for you. Best wishes for a long and happy life together.
Words can not express how easy and understanding Nicki is to work with. From our first meeting to our wedding day, Nicki made us feel more like extended family, very warm, and professional. Our day was perfect and we couldn't ask for a better officiant.Sep 1, 2016VerifiedCelebrations's reply
I wish you both only the best! All my good wishes for you and your family for a happy future together.

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?After a couple responds to my bid, I talk with them on the phone. Typically we will have an in person meeting. I learn what type of ceremony they are interested in having. And I get to know them more as people which is important to the overall meaningfulness of the ceremony. I provide templates and suggestions for the actual ceremony. We then will email back and forth about the vows and any concerns they may have. I will show up and lead rehearsal, if needed. If a couple decides they want premarital counseling, we will meet at their home or on FaceTime for three sessions. I show up early on wedding day to complete paperwork and address any last minute concerns. It is important to me that couples don't worry about me showing up. I focus on the ceremony itself and the words I am saying as I speak to help them feel the seriousness of this action. Yet, it is also joyful and I try to convey that as well. I see officiating at weddings as a ministry. I hope to offer my loving presence at a greatly significant event/transition in a couple's lives.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am always looking for new literature to read in the field. I frequently check out the bookstore or library for new editions on the subject of marriage and premarital, marital counseling. I have discovered many rituals online that I preserve in my online library to suggest to future couples, for example: Sand Ceremony; Unity Candle; Hand Fasting Ceremony; Celtic Knot Ceremony; etc. I am a graduate of seminary with a Masters in Divinity. I have a license to perform marriages in the State of Virginia. I have a two year certificate from The Well Spiritual Direction School to provide Spiritual Direction also known as Life Coaching. I have a Stephen Ministry Certification obtained after six months of course work.
