  • I recently went to my sister in law's wedding, where Dr. Renee DeSocio was the officiant. Her ceremony was beautiful, with some of the sweetest wordings on marriage that I have heard. In a time of social distancing, she helped to make a wedding a memorable event full of love that I'm sure my sister in law will appreciate for years to come.

  • Renee was beyond wonderful! We got married yesterday and she did an amazing job. I recommend her to everyone! She's professional, yet, her passion is what really makes her great; she makes you feel 'at-home' and her wanting to help give you one of the best days of your life really shows! She is the absolute best! Renee is always on time, always has a smile on her face and creates the wedding with what you want said, not said or any activities included. We had her help us perform the candle ceremony where we lit 2 candles separately and we both light a 3rd candle together with our 2 candles to signify our love is now one. I can't say enough about Renee! She really was perfect!!

  • Our officiant cancelled on us last minute and no one was available to/wouldn’t marry us with such short notice! We found Renee! She was truly a blessing in disguise! She put a BEAUTIFUL ceremony together in just a day and it left our entire wedding guests in tears through the entire thing! She is such an amazing person and really takes the time to make it special for you!

  • Renee has a great personality, perfect for a wedding minister! I am so glad that I was able to find someone like her to officiate our wedding! We weren't sure how we wanted to do our wedding, so she gave us lots of really cool ideas that we could do! She was outstanding!!

  • Renee, Alternative Weddings, was great. She met with us at our house, had several examples of promises, vows, prayers, etc for us to choose from or to adapt to what we wanted to make our wedding perfect for us. She arrived at the venue on time and conducted the wedding ceremony in a calm and confident manner. We received several compliments on the ceremony from our guests.

  • Renee was a Godsend. The process of planning a wedding can be overwhelming, to say the least—so many options and decisions to make the perfect as every girl dreams of the perfect wedding day. She greeted us with a smile every time we met. Renee was an approachable professional that listened to our vision of a perfect ceremony, from the color scheme to the venue and everything in between. She clarified every step of the way to ensure she clearly understood our vision to make a dream come true. She offered options and suggestions without pressure. Our schedules were complicated at best-Renee accommodated our schedule. I highly recommend Renee!

  • Renee was exactly who we were looking for in an officiant for our wedding. She was responsive to our questions, flexible with our requests, and above all professional through and through. We ended up meeting on line for the ferry to Boldt Castle where our ceremony was held. Her delivery of our ceremony was exactly as expected and we couldn’t be happier. We would absolutely recommend Renee to anyone looking for a someone who is patient, professional, and personable for your wedding, please consider Renee!
