  • My fiance and I were in a bind. Nanette saved the day. With just four questions/answers she was able to perfectly capture the spirit of our relationship in her ceremony script. She turned around a personalized script and revisions in under two weeks. One request I had was that we use unique quotes or passages and she hit it out of the ballpark with the two she chose for our ceremony. She has a coaching session scheduled with our "internet" ordained brave friend who is officiating our wedding. Win win! Nanette was a joy to speak with, professional, responsive and provided us with a truly stunning script for our ceremony. Highly highly HIGHLY recommend.

    Kathleen, thank you so much for your beautiful words! I'm so happy to have been able to help and will be at your wedding in spirit! Having a dear friend officiate for you is so special AND having a professionally-written ceremony makes it the best of all worlds. Cheers!

  • 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!

  • Nanette McIntyre performed a moving and beautiful ceremony for us at the Santa Barbara Courthouse. Throughout the process, Nanette was very helpful and knowledgeable about the entire wedding process, including helping to communicate with the courthouse officials, and helping us with the wedding certificate paperwork. She is a warm and wonderful officiant and we highly recommend her for your wedding! Oh, and by the way, she married us during the pandemic and despite the precautions (masks and all) she still made the whole experience special.

    Eric, thank you so much. It was a pleasure to create your wedding ceremony and help make your day special...especially during this challenging time.

  • Nanette was the epitome of class and professionalism while working with my husband, Andy, and myself, for our Santa Barbara Courthouse wedding on May 7, 2021. Nanette wrote a beautiful and customized ceremony for us. My mother-in-law teared up afterwards and said it was the best ceremony she's heard! In addition, Nanette helped keep us on track, held us accountable (we needed this!!), considered the details, and worked with us on revisions after we had to move the ceremony from June 2020 to May 2021 due to Covid. She looked great in the photographers pictures, heh, and she brought us a lovely printed version of the ceremony bound by a ribbon and a handwritten thank you card. She is wonderful!

  • Nanette wrote and officiated a beautiful ceremony for our elopement! We were originally planning on going through the courthouse, but they weren't doing any in-person appointments so we went ahead and decided to hire a private officiant. I'm so glad we ended up with Nanette! She was extremely responsive and understanding while I was still trying to figure things out. I also liked that she was available to give me feedback when I decided to write my own vows. On the day of, she showed up early and delivered a beautiful ceremony for us. It was truly a great experience and I'm so thankful she was part of our special day.

  • We initially considered my brother-in-law to officiate our intimate elopement, but decided to work with Nanette instead. My husband and I couldn't be happier with our decision! After hearing Nanette's beautifully written and moving ceremony my brother-in-law even noted, "Yeah, there's no way I could have said all of that!" She really is THAT good!! She's also responsive, flexible, and easy to work with - it was a very streamlined and efficient experience that enhanced our wedding overall! Thank you, Nanette!

    Sarah, thank you so much! I totally enjoyed sharing your special day and the process of getting there. Cheers! Nanette

  • We could not be more happy with our experience working with Nanette. She was pleasant, kind and extremely helpful throughout our entire journey. Communication was always seamless, especially during a very uncertain time. We would absolutely recommend her to any couple looking for a celebrant and officiant. She walked us through the marriage license process thoroughly, with some important tips for getting a license during Covid, and worked to get to know us as a couple so she could tailor her speech uniquely to us. She was also universally loved by all the vendors we worked with in Santa Barbara. So happy we chose Nanette!

    Pedro, thank you so much for your kind words! It was a pure pleasure to work with you and get to share a little piece of your love.

  • My husband and I eloped in Nov 2020 and due to Covid, our plans changed and had to plan everything within 4 weeks. Nanette was absolutely incredible pre, during, and post our wedding ceremony as she was professional and diligent in following up, making sure everything was in place to make our intimate wedding the best that it could be. We met her on our wedding day, and she made us feel super comfortable with her extremely kind, warm energy. We couldn’t have asked for a better officiant! Thank you for everything, Nanette! Highly recommend.

  • 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!

  • We had the best experience working with Nanette for our elopement ceremony. She came highly recommended by our photographer and planner and delivered above and beyond our expectations. She is an absolute professional, warm, inviting and genuine. Leading up to our ceremony she was communicative and helpful as we planned our vows and figured out our marriage license. On the day of, she was an absolute joy and we couldn't have been happier with our ceremony. We decided to get married just the two of us and two friends as our witnesses but having Nanette there felt like we were being married by a longtime friend. I can't recommend her enough!!

    Hi Julie and thank you so much! I loved every minute of working with you and helping you have a beautiful elopement. It was a joy to be with you, your friends and Winston! Nanette

  • 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.

  • You never know exactly what you're going to get when you hire a service, especially one so personal and intimate like an officiant, but we just couldn't be happier with Nanette! From the moment we met her, we just loved her approach to wedding ceremonies. She was so wonderfully easy going, calm and assuring that she would take care of us for our special moment. We loved what she wrote for our vows. Highly recommend Nanette! We're grateful we found her.
