  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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 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

  • When we were searching for an officiant our wedding coordinator recommended Nanette and we would have not made a better choice. Nanette was amazing from the start. Extremely helpful and detailed. She took the time to get to know us and really personalize our ceremony. Our wedding ceremony was more than what we could have asked for and we owe that to Nanette. We would HIGHLY recommend Nanette for your special day!

    Thank you so very much! Yours was a beautiful ceremony with lots of love. So happy I was a part of it and send lots of joy and happiness to you both.

  • We really couldn't have asked for more with Nanette. Her calm and trusting nature put us at ease when we first met; it felt like we had known each other for years. We took advantage of her optional pre-marital couples' counseling and sessions greatly helped guide us through this stressful time in our lives. They also strengthened the bond between us greatly. My husband and I had many touching moments between the two of us when we answered her questions used for writing our personalized ceremony. We would answer them separately and then read our answers later to each other over a bottle of wine. It reignited our love for each other by reflecting on our past, how far we have come, and what we both wanted for our future together. On our wedding day, I couldn't help but get misty-eyed when I saw Nanette. I felt so fortunate to have such a wonderful woman marrying us on one of the biggest days of our lives. She wrote an amazing personal ceremony for us and it made the day even the day ev... Read more

  • From the minute we first engaged Nanette, we knew she was the officiant for us. She truly took the time to get to know us as individuals and as a couple and it was clear that she was genuinely interested in making our ceremony a memorable one, not just for us but also for our family that was present. Additionally, she is such a warm and kind, but still professional, person, making the entire process leading up to and throughout the wedding go very smoothly. We’re so glad we chose her most involved package that included filling out several questionnaires about our relationship and two pre-marital phone sessions with Nanette before our wedding. This process helped us grow closer as a couple and to Nanette so that by the time the ceremony rolled around we felt as if we really knew her and she knew us. We would not hesitate to recommend Nanette and look forward to keeping in touch with her in the years to come!

    responded with the following comments.

    Amanda, thank you so very much. I will always remember you and B. and the process of getting to know you, working with you to create your ceremony and then of course, standing with you in front of your family to celebrate you and your journey. I look forward to our continued journey together.

  • We live in NY and so we met Nanette over the phone and communicated via email until the rehearsal. We didn’t want a lot of fuss in our ceremony, mostly because we wanted to spend more time with our friends and family, so we opted for a very simple package and made just one adjustment. We asked that one of Pablo Neruda’s love sonnets be added to the script. The only thing that bothered me was her mispronunciation of Pablo Neruda’s name during our ceremony. I’m positive no one noticed, but I did and that will stick with me. Other than that, she was professional in all her work and communicative as needed.

    responded with the following comments.

    Christina, I apologize that my pronunciation of Pablo Neruda's name was incorrect. I'm glad to hear you were pleased with the other aspects of our work together. All the best, Nanette
