  • Working out the details of our wedding ceremony with Rev. Spicer was simply lovely. Not only was she focused on the details of the ceremony itself, but also other aspects that make the whole day special. It was clear to us that it wasn’t just about getting through the formalities. She made sure that she got to know us a couple and the important things of our life together. Rev. Spicer’s help in preparing for the big day made us feel at ease and with virtually no nervousness one could expect for such an occasion. And though we knew much of what to expect, her execution of the details left us truly impressed and forever grateful. We of course know our love story, but Rev. Spicer brought it to life for our guests as well. Afterwards several of our guests shared with us that is was the most beautiful wedding they had attended. Thank you forever Rev. Spicer.

  • I can't say enough about how special Reverend Patty is! We planned this wedding in three weeks so everything was last minute. If it hadn't been for her I don't think we could have made it work. She not only said yes right away, but recommended caterers and florists and even made some calls herself. She was so considerate about making it the short and simple ceremony that we wanted, really listening to our wishes. She even made a visit to our home not only to meet us but to see how everything would be set up for a surprise wedding since the guests thought they were coming to a Cinco de Mayo party. She was a big part of the surprise and our guests loved her too. Reverend Patty is a very special person and I would recommend to anyone to give her a call. Her caring ceremony was the best and so is she!

  • We met Rev. Spicer originally through the internet, we spoke on the phone a few times and then met this gracious woman the day of our ceremony. Rev. Spicer made everything so easy for us, explaining the requirements we needed to fulfill as we are from outside of the country and gathering background information about us so the ceremony would be more personal. On April 10, 2018, Rev Spicer married us at The Living Desert, a quiet ceremony with just 4 of us in attendance. There could have been 400 people and it still would have been exactly what we asked for. Rev. Spicer made our wedding ceremony an event that we will remember very fondly in the future. Thank you so much for being such a lovely lady. Dave and Lynda

  • Patty was incredible! She’s very organized and ready to go. We told her how we wanted the ceremony to be about US, and that’s what it was. All of our guests said they cried and because during the ceremony they knew that we were meant to be together. And that was all because of everything Patty does to make sure your wedding is the best! Can’t thank Exceptional Weddings enough!

  • Reverend Patty delivered a heart felt and wonderful ceremony. Despite never having met her prior to the rehearsal, she personalized our event by sending out lists of questions for both the bride and groom to complete. The reposes made for a very fun and intimate wedding.

  • My Wife and I are very pleased with our decision to use Rev. Patty Spicer to officiate our Wedding. Patty took the time to meet with us as a couple and individually to help us develop our Exceptional Wedding. She was very helpful in providing us with a number of options and special wedding rituals to help tailor our Wedding to meet our unique needs and desires, while still maintaining the traditional core activities. She was very professional and made herself available whenever we had questions or needed clarification about the order of the procession or legal processes. Patty is kind and humorous, when appropriate, and has the perfect disposition for delivering a sweet and captivating wedding ceremony, highlighting a couples love story and connecting the guests to their relationship. If you are looking to have an "Exceptional Wedding" look no further, as Rev. Patty will make it happen!

    Dear Jon and Cindy, thank you for the glowing review. I loved working with you to design this wedding ceremony. Incorporating some of the Chinese traditions for Cindy made it very special. Your wedding was romantic, elegant, beautiful, personal, and fun Your wedding dinner and your traditional Chinese ceremony dress created a spectacular and most memorable experience for all. Thank you for letting me share this wonderful day with you!

  • Patty Spicer was one of the worst experiences with my wedding planning! My (now) husband and I took a loss of $275.00 (our deposit) because this woman was such a headache to deal with. We had planned a very small ceremony. At first, Patty was very kind and professional. I thought we chose the best officiant since her reviews are mostly 5 stars and she had a lot of experience. After about a month of planning, she became increasingly rude. She has a temper and snapped at me a few times when I turned down her add-on rituals to her ceremony. On her website it states she customizes and designs the wedding exactly how the couples want. Not true—she criticized who I wanted in my ceremony and it was like pulling teeth with this woman. She tried to dictate who I could have and couldn’t in the ceremony. I broke down from the stress she was causing, as she made it so much more difficult for me to plan. My final straw was when I asked Patty if we can meet up because all of this was done by pho... Read more

  • From the very first communication with Rev. Patty I knew I wanted her to marry us. She is a very sweet lady and has a knack for making you feel special. Planning our small, intimate, and personalized ceremony was fun, Rev. Patty made it so. Our guests were so impressed with our ceremony and how personal it was. My favourite part was the questions my husband and myself privately answered prior to the ceremony and the answers revealed by Rev. Patty during the ceremony - how special! We would most definitely recommend her to all brides and grooms looking for the perfect ceremony!

  • Reverend Patty was extremely professional and displayed her experience and knowledge while preparing and conducting our ceremony. She performed a beautiful and unique ceremony - we could not have asked for anything better! She wrote our "love story" based on questions we had answered separately. It was absolutely perfect and described our story in a fun and loving way. Our friends and family all commented how the ceremony was special and memorable - and nothing like they had witnessed before. We absolutely highly recommend Reverend Patty as a wedding officiant!

    Thank you so much for your lovely review. You are a beautiful couple and your love was very obvious to everyone there, Your wedding was a delight, fun, romantic and very special! I enjoyed meeting your gracious family and sharing in your joy. Wishing you much happiness, fondly, Rev. Patty

  • The officiant is not really something my wife and I thought very much about at the time. We both knew we wanted someone non-denominational as my wife was of a different religion, but that was about the extent of our thoughts going into looking into an officiant. We thought we would just meet with an officiant and that would be it, they would show up do something they had scripted and we would be on with it. Rev. Patty Spicer woke us up when we met with her. She took the time to know the both of us personally, and really made the ceremony very intimate for the both of us while still being able to share ourselves with our family and friends at our wedding. The readings were all carefully chosen with who we were, traditions were taken accounted for, and new ideas we never would have thought of were introduced to us. We both wanted our ceremony to reflect who we were without keeping one family out, so we opted to not include many traditional wedding ceremony pieces from each side, but inst... Read more

  • We worked with Rev. Patty for our wedding in Palm Desert this summer. We are a Canadian couple and almost all of our communication with Rev. Patty was via email. She was very informative on the process to obtain a marriage license and the steps to take after to ensure we had what we needed for our marriage to be considered valid in Canada, which was especially helpful! Rev. Patty really tried to get to know us as a couple and included our personal story in our ceremony, which created a relaxed, funny and personalized ceremony that our guests (and we) really enjoyed. I was a bit anxious right before the wedding as we had not received an outline for the ceremony and I think if we had, I would have made a small change or two, but overall, Patty brought it all together.
