Thank you so much Cecilia!
The wedding reception was very good. Everyone had such a great time.
You did such a great job! All of our guests were raving about the ceremony. They loved how romantic it was and that it was bilingual. Everyone loved the wine ceremony and the box of wine with love letters as well. None of them had ever seen that before, so it was nice to do something out of the box for them. Again, Raul and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We will definitely recommend your services! Stephaie & Raul

We really thought what you said was very nice and appropriate for us even though we did not give you much about us. Everyone who watched said it was really wonderful what you said and even how it was organized once you arrived. Thanks for creating a simple and smooth ceremony. Afterwards we all went back to the Sundy house and had a nice dinner and everyone spoke about you and the ceremony during dinner at some point which I think says a lot about your ceremonies. J.T. & Natalie

Hello, I want to extend the biggest thanks to you and Peter for being part of our special day. Our entire day was blessed by God and having you be our Officiant made our day even better. The ceremony had so much meaning and emotion to us there wasn't a dry eye there. I really appreciate the way you incorporated our son Andrew into the vows, I have never seen that done before but it was very unique to our 8 week old baby boy! You did an amazing job really capturing who we both are and bringing our two families together! I also want to thank you for speaking to Roger and talking him into saying the vows we wrote. I know he barely made it through them but it will be a moment I will never forget. It brings tears to my eyes and a smile to my face every time I think about it!!
Thank you again for being a part of our day and making it so special! Sireena and Rogerio

Thank you, thank you! We appreciate you marrying us at our wedding and being with us for the special occasion.
Although the day was beautiful, our families were there, and the location was nice, the most important part of our ceremony was the few minutes that Rocio and I could spend together telling each other what we feel and what we commit to each other with our lives. With your help and guidance we were able to say exactly what we needed to say, in more than one language, for all to hear. Your sincerity and professional manner added so much to a significant event in our lives. We will never forget get you or your influence on our bright future. May you continue on with happiness and success. With our gratitude and love, Peter and Rocio Parente
January 7, 2013 - Hola Cecilia,
Queria agradecerte por la hermosa ceremonia que realizaste en nuestro matrimonio con Luz Celia. Las palabras escogidas no pudieron ser mejor y el significado de ellas van a estar en nuestros corazones y en nuestras cabezas por siempre. Sabemos que depende de nosotros el que todo salga bien y esperamos algun dia volver a vernos contigo y poder compartir de pronto una cena. Aunque no nos conocimos por mucho tiempo contigo siento que mi Dios nos envio un mensaje con tus palabras y las agradezco de corazon.
Muchas gracias otra vez y espero seguir en contacto. Nelson & Luz Cecilia.

December 29, 2012 - Hi Cecilia, Freddy and I wanted to thank you for making our wedding so special. You were amazing from day 1. The ceremony was beyond what we hoped for thanks to you. Thank you!!! Jenny
December 29, 2012 - Cecilia is an amazing officiant and a beautiful person, very kind and patient with us. The ceremony was amazing, everybody loved it and everybody talked about how beautiful were the traditions we did. We couldn't be happier about our three-lingual ceremony , and I don't think there is any other person with such a professionalism and so much interest to make the customers happy. I definitely encouraged my girl-friends to book her (or Peter) as their officiant. Me and my husband were very proud to find out that we chose the best officiant for our ceremony.

August 23,2012 - Cecilia was very kind, patient and understanding. We has several things added and removed from our ceremony up until the week of our wedding and Cecilia never provided me with any problem. I am very detail oriented and Cecilia has no problem providing me with an updated Ceremony outline everytime I made a change. Many people would view it as a hastle and be slow about providing a return but Cecilia always emailed me right away with what I requested. She did a wonderful job arriving on time. We were rained on and the ceremony location had to be moved. I was so glad to see that Cecilia waited patiently and understood. She performed beautifully during our bilingual ceremony and did a wonderful job preparing us during the rehersal. It ran smoothly and everyone knew what to do. Our Rehearsal time and location were moved last minute but she still performed. Thank you for all you did Cecilia, Mr. and Mrs. Cone (You can also read at www.theKnot.com ).
