  • Although we are from out of country, Patty made planning our ceremony so easy for us. She added personal touches that we found to be very heartfelt, which was especially unexpected considering we mostly communicated through email leading up to the event.

  • Rev. Patricia Spicer created a very personal service that a all of our guests commented was the best they've ever attended. It was warm and full of love and appropriately the best part of our wedding. She made the effort to commute to Joshua Tree for us and was full of great advice leading up to the day. I would highly recommend her to any couple.

  • So many words can be said about Rev. Spicer, and how amazing our wedding was because of her service at our wedding. The customization, flexibility, special ceremonies, verses, and ability to capture the moment are only a few things that make her perfect for a wedding. What my wife and I both agree on, is that no other officiant would have been better. How are you supposed to feel when the majority, if not all, guests come up to you and say something in the words of, "This is not just one of the best weddings I have been to,... but the CEREMONY was the BEST I have ever seen". Many couples will have some of the best ceremony experiences ever if you have Patty Spicer at your wedding. Period. VR, John & Alisha De Garmo

  • My wife and I were planning to elope, but decided after some consideration to include our parents and siblings. I mentioned this because our ceremony was very intimate, just 10 people. In this setting the caliber of your officiant must be second to none. Patty proved to be up to the challenge. She was proactive in her preparations, staying on top of us, making sure we responded to her inquiries and gave input. Her price was fair and she was not afraid to offer honest advice and consult for all aspects of our day. This led to a ceremony perfect pitch in both emotion and humor. Patty was as much a part of our special day as our family was and we highly recommend her.

  • We live in Barcelona, Spain and decided to get married at my parents' home in Palm Springs. We chose Reverend Patty as we trusted her to provide us a special wedding and she delivered. She skillfully weaved our personal information into the ceremony highlighting the important facts of our love story.

    Susana and Dan, thank you for your very nice review. It was a challenge to work out the details of what you wanted to include in your ceremony with the different traditions of the USA and Spain, the hour difference for emails, and last minute surprises. You are a beautiful couple and the wedding was romantic, sweet, and special. It was an honor and privilege to be your officiant and get to know you. Rev. Patty

  • Rev. Patty was the perfect person to officiate our very small wedding. We arranged it at the very last minute and this did not phase her one bit. She was extremely knowledgable about the process and walked us through each step. This was especially helpful as we are not Americans and don't fully understand the bureaucracy in this country yet. I was able to talk to Patty in depth about what we wanted from the day in terms of location, flowers, photographer and budget and she absolutely delivered on this and more!!! On the actual day she was great- romantic, thoughtful and fun. She was an integral part of making it so special and we couldn't have done it without her. Highly recommended.

    Thank you, Julia and Darryl, for your great testimonial. Your wedding ceremony was pure joy, tender love, and loads of fun. You smiled continuously through the whole ceremony and then jumped with joy afterwards for the photographer. It was a delight to officiate and meet you both. I wish you much success, happiness, and blessings in your new life, new home, new country. You are adventurers with courage and soul and each other!

  • We cannot say enough about Rev. Patty! She was beyond wonderful and such a joy to be with. After our first meeting, we knew we wanted her to be the one officiating our ceremony. She is a true professional and her experience goes a long way. During the wedding planning process, our communication was frequent. We knew that Rev. Patty was planning OUR perfect ceremony. Her attention to details and completely gaining an understanding for our vision was top notch. At first in the planning process I did not realize how important it would be to completely enjoy the person that is performing the ceremony, but I can without a doubt say, that Rev. Patty was perfection for us. We have received compliment after compliment on how special and unique our ceremony was. Our guests truly got to know our love story and were completely engaged. All of our family and friends loved how personal, meaningful and touching the ceremony was. Rev. Patty takes great pride in her what she does, and it is comp... Read more

  • Reverend Patty Spicer officiated our wedding ceremony Oct 27/2012 in Palm Springs, California. I had originally intended to have a family member perform our Ceremony, and a week before the wedding, that plan fell through and I had to scramble to find someone to do our wedding. I believe everything happens for a reason, and this case was no different, we were SO lucky that Patty was available. She enhanced our wedding day exponentially. From our first phone conversation, I felt that I had known her for years. She is incredibly endearing, and warm. Patty took the time to get to know both my fiancé and I, learned about our love story, and weaved these parts through our ceremony beautifully. Patty was with us every step of the way and ensured that the ceremony reflected who we are as a couple. When the ceremony was complete, I had multiple family members snapping photos with her and exclaiming to me how much they loved her and that it was the BEST wedding ceremony they have ever at...

    Thank you, Judy and Elmer, for the special review. Your wedding was beautiful and elegant in a gorgeous desert setting with waterfalls, palm trees, mountains, endless green grass and a couple who obviously adored each other--picture-perfect. You are beautiful couple and your wedding is one I will long remember as a favorite.

  • Rev. Patty Spicer, We can't thank you enough for putting together the most beautiful wedding ceremony, it was very personal, romantic and loving which was exactly what we wanted. Your personal touches were amazing and heart felt to us as well as our two guests, we never thought a wedding for two could be so grandiose. Giving us our whole ceremony in writing as a gift was the icing on the cake, your gift will truly be a treasure for us to enjoy for years to come. You have created memories we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Thank you for being a part of our most precious day of our lives. Denise & Jim

    Your private and intimate ceremony was very elegant and very joyful as you committed to each other forever. Your love story was most emotional and I was delighted to see you two together at last. I wish I could have been at your famous barbeque party later and casually announced to your families and friends tht you had run away and were married! It was a delight to work with you.

  • We had the pleasure to work with Rev. Patty in September 2014 when we hired her as our officiant for our spiritual non-denominational wedding in La Quinta, California. We began working with her approximately a year before our ceremony and it was seamless from the start. Rev. Patty spends time getting to know the bride and groom, learning about what they value as a whole and how they envision their wedding day – with many intricate details noted. All of which she uses to build a ceremony that speaks to you as a couple, and encompasses the friends and family that surround you on a very important day. As we were Canadians coming to California for a destination wedding, there were many things that were unfamiliar to us – adding to the stress that already exists planning a wedding. Rev. Patty continually made herself available, answering questions and guiding us on the legalities associated with the marriage ceremony. She further offered to help in many other ways, such as referrals to ... Read more

  • Let me preface this review by saying that Rev. Patty Spicer provided us with a very lovely wedding ceremony that we received numerous compliments on (including from our videographer who said it was the best he had seen). It is clear that Rev. Patty takes great pride in her ceremonies and I am sure that any issues we encountered were a reflection of that fact that creating the perfect ceremony is Rev. Patty's priority. That being said, my husband and I do not think that Rev. Patty was the best fit for us. We wanted a non-religious but spiritual ceremony that was fairly simple and wouldn't feel too contrived. Unfortunately, rather than feeling like we had a positive and supportive relationship with Rev. Patty where we could openly communicate, we felt like we were often butting heads with her and felt pressured to make choices that would create the best show for our attendees. For example, we were asked multiple times to confirm that we really didn't want any mention of God in our cere... Read more

  • Rev. Patty Spicer provided us with an unique and special wedding custom to us and us alone. We wanted a casual luau themed wedding, with a non-denominational ceremony. She wrote a ceremony about our love story. Perfect for us.

    Pamala and Glen, it was such an honor and pleasure to marry you as you rekindled the love you had in your teen years. Your Hawaiian wedding was memorable for the amount of support and love that surrounded you both and all the guests that joined you on the lawn and danced to Hawaiian songs. Very special! I wish you continued happiness and joy.
