  • Rachael was one of the best choices we made regarding our wedding. Within the first 5 minutes of talking to Rachael over Skype during our intro conversation, my husband, Chris, and I fell in love with her and knew we wanted her to officiate our special day. She was kind, full of energy, funny, and armed with so many cool ideas for the ceremony that we hadn’t even thought of, including incorporating a wine-box and surprising our mothers by presenting each of them with a rose before our vows. She met with us via Skype and phone multiple times (my husband and I lived 1.5 hours away so this was best for us instead of meeting in person) to ensure our planning was going smoothly, to answer any questions we had, and even to help us defuse family drama (at the last minute, Chris’ grandfather whom is a minister decided he wanted to officiate our wedding instead *a little awkward*). We used Rachael for our wedding rehearsal in addition to the day of, which I’d recommend everyone who uses h... Read more

  • Our ceremony was perfect, and we have Rachael to thank for it! She helped us with every aspect, from the readings to the special requests we had and she even made sure the tone of our personal vows matched. She handled a large and rowdy family during rehearsal with ease and absolutely nailed it on wedding day, even ad-libbing some jokes with our readers! Rachel was flexible and timely, especially during the stressful week before. She was always straightforward and honest with us, and presented herself as both professional and friendly. We got tons of compliments from family and friends for the ceremony. We definitely recommend her!

  • Rachael was friendly, warm, and accommodating. Despite a very busy schedule, she managed to arrange phone calls and meets that worked for both of us! She also allowed us to tailor our script appropriately, since neither of us is particularly religious. She also works for many other denominations and provided a really warm experience before, during, and after the actual ceremony. She was well worth the money.

  • Rachael was a pleasure to work with. We hired her for both our wedding rehearsal and our wedding ceremony. She was always professional but also sweet and personable, quick to provide helpful tips/feedback and also incredibly organized. Hiring Rachel I knew that we didn't have to stress out about anything related to our wedding ceremony. From the first time we had spoke to her on the phone to the later exchanging emails we never felt that she was once unresponsive.

  • Rachael was everything we could have ever hoped for and more! Even though we did not meet in person until the day of our wedding she made us feel like we knew each other for years. My now wife and I had found Rachael last minute with only a few weeks away from our wedding date. Rachael could tell that we were stressing it and made everything move smoothly. She was consistently following up with us and giving her insight every step of the way through both phone calls and emails. Working in one of the most popular wedding venues around town I have seen 100's of ceremonies, with countless different styles of officiants. Call me bias, but Rachael was by far the BEST! You can really tell that she puts 110% into every ceremony with genuine compassion and joy. Know that you will be in good hands with Rachael Zajac! 5 stars ++++

  • Rachael was incredibly helpful to us in putting together a lovely ceremony; all who attended remarked on its beauty and sincerity. We had to plan our wedding long distance, and Rachael was completely flexible and communicative via email and Skype. She is eager to share her advice and experience about the little details that help a wedding go smoothly. Without the knowledge she so generously shared, I would have had been overwhelmed organizing the rehearsal and the ceremony as a whole. She’s always smiling and her warmth and support were felt all of our family and friends.

  • Rachael is absolutely great! I have never been to a wedding before, so Racheal helped my husband and I pick out all the readings and directed us in the right path. She knows all the little tricks of a wedding ceremony to make everything go smoothly and make the pictures look perfect. I don't know what I would have done without Rachael, she looked out for us and made sure our day was perfect!

  • Rachael Zajac of Ceremony by Rachael was the wedding officiant at my recent wedding. Words cannot express how wonderful it was working with Rachael. She took the time to get to know me and my fiance, ans was passionate, knowledgeable, professional and caring. She genuinely wanted to make sure our wedding ceremony was everything we wanted, and she was able to offer helpful suggestions about the ceremony. Not only did we fall in love with Rachael by the end of our planning sessions, our guests fell in love with her too and were raving about how great she was during the ceremony/rehearsal! If you are getting married and want a caring, experienced officiant, Rachael is your choice!

  • From the first email exchange to the last, she was a pleasure to work with! I contacted a few different Officiants before making my final decision. After my first phone call with Rachel, I knew right away who I’d be choosing. Prompt email responses - Which is refreshing! There’s nothing worse than waiting days for an important email. And when it comes to your wedding every email is important! Rachel rolled with the punch when I changed our wedding rehearsal location 2 hours before hand, (due to rain). And was completely comfortable with taking control when dealing with our big family crammed in one room, and a wedding to practice for, the following day. Not to mention she was a great sport when it came to my Hubby, who was being a complete goofball, while we were all trying to be serious. The day of my wedding Rachel exceed my expectations. She came to check up on me a few times. To see how I was feeling, making sure all of our marriage license paperwork was all ... Read more

  • Rachael was very prompt and courteous in her emails and in coordinating the ceremony. She provides many choices and ways to put together the ceremony. The price is a bit much, but feasible for higher budget weddings. She arrives on time to rehearsal and ceremony and checks on the bride prior to. She is available for phone calls, text messages, video chat at late hours, when needed.
