Deciding on the right person to perform your ceremony can be a tough decision. Please read some of the testimonials I have received.
THANK YOU CYNTHIA! After 6 months of wedding planning I had everything in place but the most important part- the Officiant! I’d been procrastinating for months and avoiding the ceremony and vows until a decision had to be made. Enter Cynthia, who offered so many ideas and worked patiently with us to create a nontraditional ceremony that reflected both our spiritual beliefs and a way to directly involve our guests. I am especially grateful for Cynthia’s patience and flexibility given the many changes that were made (until the night before), and her willingness to drive a distance to our wedding venue. I can honestly say that in the end our ceremony and vows were “Perfect.” Moreover, Cynthia is a wonderful person we enjoyed being with, and are so happy to have been married by.
CAJ said… Cynthia was so excellent!! We booked her in February for our August wedding and corresponded via email between the dates. She offered to get together again to discuss the wedding plans and such before the big day, since we weren’t doing a rehearsal, but we didn’t feel that we needed it. Whenever we wrote her an email she responded very quickly and was so helpful throughout the entire process – and she was super patient with me and my procrastination! She showed up early on the wedding day, just as she said she would, and even selected her outfit to compliment our wedding colors (instead of the standard black). She worked with the DJ and our coordinator to cue everyone with walking down the aisle and happily wore the corsage we’d made for her as well! Cynthia wrote up a ceremony just for us, based on our initial interview and subsequent questionnaire, personalized with the Native American and local touches we’d told her were important to us. She even found a really nice Native American blessing for the ceremony that one of our guests liked so much she wants to use it for her wedding too!! Ms Curry is just one of the sweetest, nicest people you could ever meet and it was such a pleasure to have her officiate our wedding, which was full of love and laughter, just as we’d hoped!
Tealah & Matt: Cynthia was the perfect officiant for our wedding! Let’s start from the beginning.: When I initially emailed Cynthia, inquiring about her officiating services, she replied quickly. She is great about replying via email and text message which made getting together for our initial meeting very easy. My – now – husband and I met her at a Starbucks where she asked us about how we met, what we like to do together, what kind of wedding we were planning, if we had any special needs/wants/requests for our ceremony – she was very thorough and such a pleasure to talk with. After she had gotten a feel for what kind of ceremony we wanted, she gave us a sample of something she thought would work for our vows; it made both of us tear up – in a good way! – and we knew that she was the right officiant for us! After that, she sent us home with a questionnaire to fill out that would help her write our full ceremony. The ceremony turned out better than either of us could have hoped for or imagined! My husband comes from a very traditional Christian family, while I am a Neo-Pagan; it could have been tricky to navigate the intertwining of those traditions into a cohesive, sensitive ceremony, but Cynthia managed to do so with flying colors! All of this being said, Cynthia’s fees for her services are also very reasonable. I’m sure that any couple that choose Cynthia for their officiant will not be disappointed!

Cindy is just as sweet throughout the whole process as she is the first time you meet her. She’s intelligent, understands love and relationships and people and is genuinely kind-hearted. We loved her.
We felt comfortable throughout the whole process with Cindy, right through the ceremony and afterwards — she attended our reception at our request and we loved having her there. I especially like that she seemed to be on the same wavelength as Bill and I on what we wanted and how we wanted to say it. What she wrote was near-perfect (that’s why get to edit throughout the process – but honestly there was very little of it!). Once we completed our questionnaires, it seemed easy from there. The questionnaire was hard and long, but enables her to understand you and your groom so much better, so both Bill and I gave it everything so she could have a true picture of us.And she allowed us to write our own pieces and put it in with the ceremony, which worked out well.
She was sweet during the ceremony as she is one-on-one and smiled and was loving and human throughout. She dressed appropriately — we’d discussed it beforehand then I left it up to her — I trusted her judgment at that point.
Her price was awesome. It depends on what she is doing for you, but we had many quotes at quadruple and more for what she did. Many. We looked a long time to find the right fit in Cindy — she was definitely not the first person we came across, and was one of many we actually contacted. She was the only one we loved from the beginning and have not been sorry. Our wedding was awesome and everything was perfect. Cindy had a big part in that — because the ceremony was the most important to us and what was said. Oh, and all the guests were in tears (so I’m told) and loved everything said.
Thanks again for making our wedding such a special and memorable day… You did a great job… We’ve gotten MANY compliments on what an awesome job you did… No one had ever seen someone conduct a ceremony as in depth and personnel as you did…Shawn & Donna

I hope all is well. I have to say my family and friends said so many wonderful comments about the ceremony. It was perfect in every way. I appreciate all your efforts. You were truly thoughtful in personalizing our ceremony. Thank you so much for bringing the backup music. I found out too late in the game the DJ was not up to speed. Thank goodness you were there to save the day. Take Care, Pendora
