  • When the chance to get married in God’s country (Santa Barbara) comes up you jump on it! And when COVID delays your plans, you wait. And wait. And wait. During multiple delays Nannette was wonderful and supportive, helping us flex time and time again. Nannette delivered a heartfelt personalized ceremony. She took the time to talk to us and get to know us so that she could personalize our nuptials. I can not recommend Nannette enough. Her care and love made our special day even more special.

  • Nanette was such a pleasure to work with, which meant everything to my (now) husband and I during this challenging time to plan anything. We eloped, just the two of us, so it was very important to find the right person. Nanette has such a wonderful energy and from the start felt like someone we had known before. Not only was the ceremony she put together lovely and modern, but she incorporated two poems we chose so beautifully into the rest of her words. Truly couldn't imagine a better experience.

  • I would recommend Nanette to any friends or family in the SB area looking for an officiant. We reached out to her with a very small timeframe for an elopement (2 weeks before our desired date!) and not only was she incredibly flexible, but she dedicated so much time and effort to making our ceremony personalized to us and our vision. The end result was a beautiful day that could not have happened without her support and guidance!

  • My fiance (now husband!) and I had to push our wedding back to 2021, but we wanted to go ahead and get legally married with so many uncertainties in the world. Santa Barbara is a very special place to us as it's become our anniversary celebration spot. We knew we wanted our courthouse wedding to be at the Santa Barbara courthouse. We found Nanette through our planners and she became such a crucial part of our small little elopement team. With all the unknowns about the courthouse and Covid, Nanette through her connections and experience guided us with various options. She really went above and beyond to help the experience be a happy, less stressful one for us. On the day she prepared a beautiful ceremony and gifted us a copy of it, so we were able to re-read it and re-live the memory. It's so special to have. She is super professional and her energy matched ours so perfectly. We are thrilled and would recommend Nanette to anyone! You will have an amazing experience in her hands.

    Hannah, thanks so much for your beautiful words and I am so happy you had a great experience. I loved meeting you both and your pups and wish you a lifetime of love!

  • Having Ms Nanette be our officiant was the best choice that we made. We were looking for someone who could combine our two faiths and she did that we ease. What I did not expect was actually how her presence brings this palpable ease, from who she is and how she speaks. It’s hard to explain until you meet her. She is just so warm. It felt difficult for me to have someone who did not know us prior to officiate our wedding because I thought the warmth would be missing. Ms Nanette’s warmth was exactly what we needed. We also were concerned with how to find the right words for not only how we felt but how our story came to be, and after answering a few questions and visiting with her, it was somehow spot on, SPOT ON! We got SO many compliments from our friends and family about how they were shocked with her ability to capture our story. You won’t be disappointed by selected Ms Nanette. Guaranteed.

    Robin, thank you for your beautiful words. It was a joy to get to know you both and to be a part of your beautiful day. Thank you for the honor of serving as your Celebrant and Officiant.

  • Working with Nanette was seriously a dream. She navigated us through planning our traditional wedding and writing a beautiful and thoughtful ceremony. When we had to pivot to a small courthouse ceremony she beautifully transitioned the ceremony to accommodate the new situation. I would highly recommend working with her!

    Cara, thank you! It means so much to me to have been a part of helping you create an beautiful day and I thank you for the opportunity.

  • Nanette was a pleasure to work with and saved our last minute wedding. We (like many others) had to completely alter our plans due to COVID but Nanette was very understanding, quick to respond, and had fantastic recommendations to make our wedding day safe and special. We hired Nanette about a month prior to our wedding. She offered multiple plans depending on the state of the pandemic and was very flexible which took so much stress off the planning process during this time. Although it was a short timeline, Nanette offered multiple phone conversations to ensure we were comfortable with the ceremony, assistance with our personal vows, and provided clear guidelines as we were not able to have a formal rehearsal. Nanette wrote a beautiful ceremony that all our guests commented on. She provided a professional copy of our ceremony as a keepsake that we will treasure for years to come. Overall we were very happy with her services and would immediately recommend her.

    Alison, thank you so much! It was a pleasure to help you create your beautiful wedding ceremony and I loved being a part of your special day.

  • In the midst of the viral pandemic, my husband and I decided to elope and were married by Nanette this week. We were initially going to marry in a small ceremony with our family, and had been planning with Nanette for the past 6 months. Nanette was so easy to work with from the very beginning. She really felt like family from the get-go, and whenever she talked, a sense of calm immediately set in. She offered to meet us in person to review the details of the day and made sure we liked the setup of the ceremony. Before and after our meeting, we were able to set up phone calls with her to check in and update each other. When we realized we had to cancel the ceremony, Nanette graciously accommodated us and really did whatever it took to make our dream of getting married happen. Team work really did make the dream work. We could not have asked for a better backup plan. If you are looking for an officiant with a kind and warm heart and soul, Nanette is really the best. W...

  • Nanette was an exceptional officiant from beginning to end. I knew from our first call with her that she was the right officiant for us. She is so experienced, easy to work with, and considerate. She was eager for our feedback to ensure ceremony was exactly the ceremony we had been imagining. With Nanette as our officiant, our wedding day was low stress and absolutely beautiful. We cannot recommend her highly enough!

    Jane, thank you so much for your generous words. It was my honor to be your Officiant and meeting you both, was a pleasure!

  • Nanette officiated our non-denominational elopement in Santa Barbara in Sept 2020, after COVID required us to postpone our actual wedding until 2021. From the first call via Zoom, her warmth, consideration for the experience we wanted to have, and inquisitive questions made it a no-brainer to go with her. We decided to be surprised by her sections as we felt comfortable she had asked enough questions to understand what we were looking for. She checked in regularly as our date approached, and as we kept her updated on our timetable and other vendors. She showed up early, gave some last minute suggestions, listened to how we wanted to handle the first look and ceremony, and then ensured we were good to go on the marriage license. The ceremony itself was beautifully written and perfectly in line with what we wanted. We would highly recommend Nanette as a wedding officiant, especially in Santa Barbara but also anywhere else. Thanks Nanette for making our special day even more speci... Read more

  • Nanette was perfect for our small, intimate wedding. We opted for her most basic package / offering, and our experience was nothing but positive. She was attentive, supportive, warm, and all-around professional. She even helped us stay on track / ahead of schedule, when possible. Although we didn't spend too much time together (mostly by way of the package we purchased), we felt supported the entire way. It felt really easy to work with her, which was perfect for our wedding.

    It was a joy to share in your special day! It makes me so happy that even though we didn't spend a lot of time together before your ceremony, you felt my support and caring. You had a beautiful gathering of family and friends!

  • Nanette came highly recommended to us by our wedding coordinator. Hiring Nanette was one of the best decisions my fiancee (now husband!) and I made and actually made the planning process easier. I knew that I wanted a very special and personalized ceremony and Nanette came through! We began with a phone conversation and then my husband and I were able to meet with her in person. Nanette listened carefully to what we wanted and incorporated humor and aspects of our personalities into the ceremony. She even helped us write and edit our own vows which was the highlight of our ceremony--all our family members loved how personal and touching they were. Communicating with Nanette was always a joy, she put me at ease and always replied to my emails and calls right away. Her professionalism and calm demeanor was priceless on our wedding day! Her presence was wonderful and helped us stay in the moment. Thank you, Nanette for being a part of our wedding! We are so grateful to have ... Read more
