  • Bonnie was so easy to work with and she allowed us to make whatever adjustments to the ceremony that we felt suited us best. It was such a good experience throughout the whole process she’s very professional and created a sense of calm through the whole process. On the wedding day the ceremony was perfect and people mentioned how much they enjoyed it!

  • The experience with Bonnie was wonderful! The ceremony was us! We come from a Lao and Filipino heritage and we had the ceremony uniquely made for us. There were laughs and many tears (happy tears =)). Our love story was very thoughtful and everyone who attended loved our ceremony. Throughout the entire process Bonnie was kind, accommodating and prompt with her responses. I don't think I can find a better person to be our celebrant. We Highly recommend her to officiate your wedding!

  • I loved my wedding ceremony! Bonnie was very responsive from the start of planning and all the way through the end of the ceremony. She did a great job capturing our love story during the planning process and expressing it during our ceremony. She was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her again and again!

  • Bonnie was amazing to work with and we couldn't be any more grateful for the wonderful job she did celebrating our marriage. We knew almost immediately that the connection created with Bonnie was something special. Bonnie has an ability to take your relationship and tell your story. She takes the time to listen to your needs and helps create an amazing memory. Our ceremony was uniquely ours and Bonnie's advice and guidance made for precious memories that we will hold dear forever. We have had guests ask us if she was an old friend of ours or a family member because she knew our story so well.

    Dennis, thank you for your kind words. I knew from our initial meeting how dear you and Jessica were to each other. I could not wait to find out more about you and showcase your love story before friends and family. I count myself fortunate to have the honor of marrying people as precious to each other as the two of you. Love each other well! xoxo

  • HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Bonnie really took the time to get to know us and listened to our vision for our ceremony. The ceremony was exactly what we wanted -- heartfelt, sweet, and most importantly, true to us. We were just married two days ago and have already taken the time to write this review because we can't thank her enough. We've received so many compliments on the ceremony and this is an absolute credit to Bonnie. Hire her!!

    Ryan and Cindy, Thank you so much for your kind words. Serving as your Life-Cycle Celebrant was an honor. The tender moments created during your ceremony are a testament to the love you share with one another. Enjoy each moment of your time together as newlyweds!

  • Bonnie was absolutely amazing! She is a kind, thoughtful, and joyous individual, and that was obvious during our first meeting with her. We knew that she would be a perfect fit for our ceremony! She was extremely helpful during the entire planning process and we had no worries that the wedding ceremony would go off without a hitch. Bonnie was extremely thorough, professional, personable, and responsive. We didn't want an overly serious or formal ceremony, but we wanted it to be meaningful as well. Bonnie was very flexible and was able to design a custom ceremony and suggested rituals that would best suit what we wanted the feel to be. We received several compliments on how wonderful our ceremony was (and are still receiving them months later)! Seriously - choose Bonnie for your ceremony!

    Thank you so much, Katie! You are a love and I am absolutely over the moon about officiating for you and Rick. Your love is one of a kind.

  • From the moment you meet Bonnie, she feels like an old friend. I think meeting an officiant can feel an awful lot like meeting a therapist for the first time - having to share your story, your history, your future plans. But with Bonnie, she made it all so easy, comfortable, enjoyable, and fun. Her ceremony was so beautifully written, taking our stories and weaving them into a larger story to share with our guests. We were so delighted with the whole process that we'd do it all over again in a heartbeat. Bonnie's just the tops - she made our day.

    Are you kidding me? Dana, my cup overflows. Thank you for your kind words. Marrying you and Alicia was such a thrill, I'd do it over again as well. xoxo

  • Our friends and family raved about our ceremony. It was an emotional experience for not only us, but our guests too. Bonnie asks for each person in the couple to submit a detailed questionnaire and meticulously uses them to put together a ceremony that is thorough and unique. She also recommended other vendors which we used (and LOVED). She was extremely fast to respond to all our emails along the way. Cannot thank Bonnie enough for all her hard work. The ceremony she provided us laid the framework for the rest of our amazing wedding. Would recommend Bonnie without second thought.

    Thank you, Alicia!! Creating your ceremony with you and Dana was such a pleasure. Seeing you both walk down the aisle looking radiant with the warmth and love of your family and friends around you in the ivy-lined garden at Firehouse Chicago created lasting memories. It was a joy to serve you and Dana!

  • Bonnie was the perfect choice for my August 2017 wedding! My husband and I did a lot of research to find our officiant and knew within the first minute that Bonnie was the one. Her personality is so warm and down-to-earth which is exactly what we were looking for. She wrote a personal ceremony for us and we received so many compliments from our guests that it was one of the best weddings they had been to. Plus, she was quick and prompt in sending in our marriage license. Thank you for everything, Bonnie!

    Kelli! You are the best! Thank you for your kind works. Working with you and your husband, Bret, was a dream.

  • Bonnie curated the perfect ceremony for us! We didn't know Bonnie prior to our first interview with her, and we only conversed via email and her very in depth questionnaire, yet multiple people approached us after the ceremony asking how long we have known her. They were amazed that we hadn't known her for years.

    Thank you for your sweet words, Bret! I appreciate the time spent with you and Kelli creating your ceremony.
