  • I wish we could give her a negative score. She NO SHOWED to my brother's wedding today. A couple's worst nightmare. An entire wedding planned and no officiant. The bride and groom were devastated to say the least. Do not consider this awful excuse of a "professional" for your wedding.

  • Meeting Sherry and having her conduct our wedding was a very good experience and we can for sure recommend her and her husband to anyone else. She responded very fast and was able to come out the very same day and perform the ceremony. They even took care of the photos. Thank you Sherri!

  • Sherry drove a long way to come do my wedding....from day one she has been nothing but smiles, honestly, flexibiliy, affordable, and honestly out of all the chaos of the other wedding problems I was always at ease knowing that she would be there. I got so lucky to have found her as quickly as I did, and she was wonderful! I recommend her to anyone! Thank you Sherry!

  • Sherry and her husband were perfect for our wedding. We were able to easily elaborate the ceremony (we wanted something very simple). We were a bit nervous that we had not physically met before the wedding day, so I would recommend a rehearsal, but Sherry made us very comfortable as soon as we met at the location of the wedding. Thank you for this memorable moment.

  • I was looking for a non-denominational minister, and that was when I came across Sherry Tavel. Her prices are very reasonable compared to other ministers ($300 vs $650). Sherry provided ceremony vows for us to personalize, which was very helpful. Both her and her husband are ordained ministers, so be clear as to who you want to show up to your ceremony (in writing) so there are no surprises. Seeing that we were both very busy, Sherry offered to meet via FaceTime/Skype - which worked much better for both of our schedules. My only negative review of Sherry was the fact that she announced my husband and I as "Mr. & Mrs. Brad LastName"... my husband's name is Brandon, not Brad. Overall, you get what you pay for. They are both extremely nice indivdiauls - her husband even took tons of pictures of our rehearsal and wedding and e-mailed them to me.

  • We rented a mic stand for her to use so everyone could hear her and us but she didn't use it for some reason. Instead, she placed the mic in between her book and no one could hear us. I was pleased with her overall service but very disappointed that no one heard us. We worked hard on our vows and it was something we were proud to share with everyone. Overall, she is a very nice person and was very flexible with us since we were 2 different religions. She was willing to read whatever we gave her and even offered to wear a special stole we designed with the Islamic & Christian symbols on it.

    responded with the following comments.

    The stand for the microphone was no where on the stage to be utilized. I was handed a large microphone and due to a wrist injury, could not hold it and hold the booklet with the ceremony.

  • I had already read reviews stating that Sherry did not reply in a very timely manner. That was spot on but I expected it so it really wasn't that big of a deal! I was a little dissapointed that when performing our ceremony she seemed to be reading it for the first time. She was on time and was very professional and her prices are much more reasonable than anyone else we spoke with.

  • My husband and I selected Weddings by Sherry based on reviews that we had read about positive experiences that others had with this company. I cannot begin to tell you how disappointed we were with choosing this company! To begin with, after sending in our paperwork and paying our fee for their service, it was nearly impossible to get in touch with anyone at this company. Phone calls were not returned and emails weren't answered for 3-5 days. Two weeks after sending in our fee and submitting our paperwork, we received an email asking if we were still planning on having our wedding because they hadn't received our payment or registration so our date had not been saved on their calendar. When I questioned them further on this, they stated that they had, in fact, received it several days earlier. The worst part, however, was their lack of professionalism on our wedding day. We were informed that they would be at our location at 4:30 for our 5:00 wedding so we would have some time to go ... Read more

  • I liked Sherry. She was very personable and I loved our ceremony. Sometimes I would email her and send her a follow up email because I wouldn't receive a response but other than that, everything else was great.

  • The wedding ceremony was nice but was not what was originally agreed upon. We were supposed to have a sand ceremony, but did not get one. Now...I was willing to over look that...because it did turn out nice. I felt that I was basically rushed and pushed out the door so that they could make the next wedding. I understood that 10/10/10 was a popular date, but guests at my wedding did not appreciate the rudeness and bad attitude. My ring was basically ripped out of my maid-of-honor's hand when presenting the ring for my husband to put on my hand. During the ceremony my middle name was incorrectly said and misspelled on the certificate they give you. Even though they called confirm the information a few days before. Now...I got married in October and I have NOT been able to get a hold of them and get the certificate reprinted. At the wedding I was assured that I would be mailed a new one...STILL WAITING. I have called and emailed MULTIPLE times with NO response. I cannot bel... Read more

    I do not recall any of these details to have happened. I was on time, completed the pre-approved ceremony. The Bride was late and I had to wait and even though the agreement contains a late fee, I did not charge one. I sent several emails and language is in the agreement that the couple must fax me a copy of the license so I can make sure names are correct. The certificate is something I do special for the couple and not something required. We took pictures of the ceremony and sent them to the couple. I suppose that you cannot please everyone, even though we try our hardest

  • Mrs. Tavel did a fantastic job at our wedding despite some miscommunication which they graciously worked around which made everything so much less stressful. Both Mr. and Mrs. Tavel were very friendly and open to our guests which made them feel more like guests :)
