  • Rev. Eva Overholdt did a great job with our ceremony and was able to accommodate for a few things I wanted change when it was pretty close to the wedding. She listened to what we wanted for our ceremony and executed it! She was a pleasure to work with.

  • Reverend Eva is truly amazing! We were looking for an LGBT-friendly officiant who could do a highly personal but not religious ceremony and Rev. Eva exceeded all our expectations. Our early contacts with her were unconventional so it would have been easy and even understandable for her to ignore our needs, but instead she stepped up and met them all. Eva's gentle warmth and genuine kindness is immediately evident when you meet her, and put us right at ease. She didn't just listen to us, she absorbed our story and incorporated it into our ceremony in an incredibly meaningful way. My partner and I were thrilled with how she handled the process of creating our ceremony, and the rehearsal and day of. Many of our guests commented on how wonderful she was as well. She was the calming presence we needed during a sometimes very chaotic process, and we very highly recommend her to anyone in search of an officiant.

  • Eva was absolutely amazing! My husband and I werent exactly sure what kind of context we wanted for our ceremony as neither of us are religious. We just knew we wanted a very personalized ceremony and Eva absolutely delivered that. We met in person and via Skype several times in the months leading up to our ceremony. Eva definitely took the time to get to know us as a couple and that certainly was reflected in our ceremony. Our guests had even asked if we knew her prior, as it certainly seemed that was from the ceremony when she was talking about how we met and our relationship. Eva was very responsive and provided a ton of support to us before, during and after our ceremony. I would highly recommend her to any couple looking for a wedding officiant!

  • Rev. Eva was absolutely amazing to work with! We did everything on short notice and there was never a problem. Even when my wife had a complication with her scheduling at work, Rev. Eva was there to help and made everything easy. The ceremony she provided was beautiful and better than we imagined. Would definitely recommend:) !!!

  • We feel so fortunate to have found Reverend Eva to officiate our wedding. From our first meeting, we could see that Reverend Eva was such a kind and warm person. She took genuine interest to get to know us as individuals and a couple so that she could craft the the appropriate words for our ceremony. As I came from a religious upbringing but my husband did not, it was important for us to combine religious and secular elements in the ceremony. Reverend Eva provided a solid framework and outline for the ceremony and readily provided suggestions, but was also open to hearing our thoughts and ideas, as well. She was available for multiple meetings leading up to the wedding and was quick to respond to emails. The day of the wedding, I appreciate that she took both myself and my husband aside for a quiet moment and provided a calming energy prior to the ceremony. I would highly recommend Reverend Eva to any couple.

    My deep gratitude and appreciation to you both. It was a pleasure to meet your families and see what a sincere care and regard they have for you. I enjoyed spending time with your parents, siblings and friends. I will treasure the memories each time I glance at the awesome engagement picture you gave to me a gift. All my very best to you both. BTW I really enjoyed the craft beer theme at your reception and the adorable comment Michael made to me before the ceremony "there could have been more".

  • Reverend Eva was an amazing officiant! She was great to meet with in the months leading up to the wedding, and helped us plan our Indian/American fusion wedding ceremony so that it was cohesive and honored both sides. She was a calming presence throughout the planning and on the day. You can tell she definitely cares about the couples. We couldn't have asked for more!

  • Reverend Eva was awesome. She was so helpful through out the entire process. We had a multicultural wedding and she was easily able to incorporate everything that we wanted in our ceremony. She was incredibly flexible (as we had some last minute changes). What was really thoughtful were the meetings we were able to have with her through out the wedding planning process. You could tell she just didn't want to plug us into a "template." She really wanted to get to know us as people, and I think it showed during the ceremony. Would recommend to anyone in the Milwaukee area. Thanks Reverend Eva! Val and Amanda

  • We loved working with Eva! She was very flexible with scheduling days and times to meet to make our ceremony content perfect! She is very professional and very easy to talk to. It felt like we were meeting with a friend when discussing details about our wedding. All of our friends and family said they enjoyed her as well and would go to her church if she were a pastor somewhere!! I would recommend her to everyone I know that is getting married!

  • We had a great experience working with Eva. She was a joy to work with and was on board with making the ceremony a celebration instead of a formality. She was also very easy to work with on the level of religion we wanted in the ceremony, understanding that everyone's faith is different. We are so glad we selected Eva to work with! We received many compliments on the ceremony and Eva from our guests.

  • Rev. Eva Overholt was very friendly and inviting from the moment we stepped into her office. She laughed with us and encouraged us in what we have been through in life and our relationship with each other and celebrated our decision to wed each other. Andy and I wanted a very, very simple ceremony, just tie the knot and move on. Rev. Eva surprised us with a beautiful ceremony - one we didn't even know we wanted - she took the little things we said about ourselves in the hour meeting we had with her prior to the wedding day and came up with beautiful sentiment that made our marriage ceremony so much more than the legal necessity. Rev Eva has a beautiful soul. She made us feel that we have a friend for life in her and I will surely recommend her to friends and family!

  • Eva did a great job. She looked and sounded amazing on our wedding day. We actually got compliments on her officiating! She was incredibly professional throughout the entire process and available via Skype. While there were some minor issues with using the correct draft of our ceremony, we spent a lot of time looking for the right officiant and in the end she was the right one for us!

    Thank you for your review and kind words! The overall average of my rating has been impacted by your response. I value ALL my customer experiences and I would be interested in the quality of service rating more specifically. As for the value, that of course, I understand is perceptual. My fees are not the industry, lowest for many reasons; some which are experience, education, personal demand and market supported, however, there certainly are many local officiants charging higher price points so value is something I give a great priority to. Hence, if this were brought forth to me directly I would be very open to offering options to add value such as unlimited client meetings and post nuptial support. As for the responsiveness rating this also is something that I feel is paramount to adding value to service. As a solo practice, I do at times have a somewhat delayed reply time. My goals is to reply to ALL clients within the day they contact me but at times it will be within 24 hours since I am often in consultations, client meetings and out of my office performing other services and ceremonies. Again, I am very grateful for your reply and for the thoughtfulness of allowing me to have a greater understanding of your experience to assist me in improving myself and the experience of others that I will continue to serve.

  • We worked with Reverend Eva Overholt. She did a great job with our ceremony. She’s easy to work with, and understood exactly what we wanted. The only problem we had was that it took quite a few edits and back-and-forths of the ceremony to perfect it, but in the end it was great.
