  • From the beginning when I found her, she was 10 steps ahead of me. She truly knows what she is doing. She gave us a huge Google document FULL of different ceremony choices. She prepares you for the ceremony and walks you through the whole way. We loved her.

  • Crystal is absolutely amazing and sweet! She helped make our day special! We were able to customize our entire ceremony, leave out traditions we didn't want and add in things special to us. Our day wouldn't have been so great without her. On the day of, she made us both feel at ease, and we later received several compliments on the sweetness and simplicity of the ceremony. Definitely recommend ❤

    Hello Jillian! Thank you so very much for taking the time to write such sweet words! You and Nicolas were so much fun from start to "you may kiss the bride!" I love that he was nervous and wanted everything "just so". That was a clear indicator of how much he cares for YOU! :) Thank you so much for inviting me to your wedding. Every happiness to you both!! ❤ Pastor Crystal

  • Crystal Porter made our wedding ceremony such a fun and special time. She is fabulous, fun, energetic, caring, and everything we set out to find in our officiant. After our first call, we knew that we needed her to be a part of our wedding. She made planning our ceremony, something that can be stressful and nerve wrecking, FUN! We chose the Fairytail Love story and it was amazing. Our guests were laughing and there was never a dull moment. It really made the ceremony memorable and gave our wedding party a way to be included in our ceremony and surprise us. We were both at ease because of the helpful guidance and advice Crystal shared leading up to our day. I have had so many guests ask me how I found Crystal. So many have complimentedhow unique and special our ceremony was because of her. She is everything! And look at that dress! OMG her style is perfection 🥰. We cannot say how thankful we are that she was by our side that day. We will cherish those moments forever. Thank you Cry... Read more

From romantic and sweet -- to FUN, and back again! ;) Your wedding party busting out in song/ dance -- all flash-mob style was perfection!! I'll never forget it. You and Eric are so blessed to have such loving and fun family and friends. Thank you for letting me be a part of such a special day. I only wish the photos captured more of my SMILES & laughter than these dramatic moments! LOL YOU look gorgeous though. ;) Hugs and Blessings to you both!! ❤ Pastor Crystal

  • There are no words to describe how amazing Crystal is and was. From the begining she was completely devout about us and our love story. She worked with us to make our ceremony personal and customized just for us. Her love, warmth and passion for what she does is what makes her amazing. She made a personal connection with almost all of our guests and prayed with them. We only had a few phone conversations but meeting her in person was exactly how she was in person, bubbly and exuberant.

    Valerie!! You are the sweetest! I loved every minute of being your officiant! :) Thank you so very much for inviting me to your wedding! HUUUUGS to you all three. :) -Pastor Crystal

  • My husband and I got to experience our very beautiful ceremony with Pastor Crystal! She is very creative and very flexible in pretty much everything! She's bilingual so we did have some spanglish in the ceremony which was awesome because my mom doesn't speak english. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant she makes everything flow like its supposed to. Not to mention she has done multiple sand ceremonies and they turn out very pretty, like I said she is very creative.

    Hola Sarai! Thank you so very much for your kind words. :) You are such a lovely couple! I wish you every blessing and happiness. I love how pretty your heart of flowers turned out! Beautifully done! Big hugs to you both!! -Pastor Crystal

  • Pastor Crystal was absolutely amazing! She made the whole experience incredibly easy and fun. She walks you through the process and helps where needed making the stress of planning a little more easy. She doesn't have a single minded processes and lets you had your own personality into the ceremony. Come wedding day, she was punctual and professional and had time to meet with my husband and I before the ceremony began to go over any last minute details. She added so fun and lightness to the ceremony and we received so many compliments from our guests and even the vendors loved her and couldn't say enough wonderful things about her! From the moment you meet Crystal to your special day, there's not a doubt that she isn't the most perfect officiant for the occasion!

    Sweet Jessica! Thank you so very much for your above and beyond kind words! :) What an incredible and elegant wedding. You were stunning! But, my favorite part of the wedding was the grin your groom had from ear to ear for the entire day! LOL He was adorably, madly and hopelessly smitten with you! And I pray he always will be. :) Many, many blessings to you both, "till death do you part" and beyond. ❤ Pastor Crystal
