  • Eileen did a fantastic job of getting to know our story and she provided so many options for elements to include in our ceremony. We had more than a few guests ask if she was a friend because she did that great of a job personalizing our ceremony. She was extremely professional, organized, and definitely took charge during the rehearsal to make sure we all knew what was going on and we were all comfortable with it. Even when she wasn't sure of some of the wording we wanted to use, she made sure to get our feedback right before the ceremony so that it was accurate and what we wanted. We had so many compliments on the ceremony and it was lovely working with Eileen and we definitely recommend her officiating services!

  • Eileen and team did an outstanding job with our wedding coordination and officiating! We originally hired Down the Aisle for our wedding officiant, but after letting our original coordinator go Eileen was more than accommodating to step in and help with the planning/coordinating of our wedding. With very little time between hiring her and our wedding, Eileen was able to pull everything together and we don't think the wedding would have went as amazing as it did without her! The script for our ceremony was so beautiful, resulting in all of our guest sharing a tear or many (which we wanted). Eileen was such a joy to work with and our day was perfect with her help!!!

    What would we have changed about your wedding? NOTHING! Absolutely NOTHING! The venue, love locks, ballerina slippers, and best of all, your LOVE! It was perfect, and we were beyond happy to meet & work with you & Vince! ♡ Eileen & Team!

  • We could not have been happier with Eileen. She was responsive, professional, and so warm and welcoming that we knew when we met her that she was the perfect officiant for us. She was able to customize a package that met our budget even though we reached out to her last minute. As far as the ceremony, she wrote and customized something beautiful for us, incorporating so many elements from our “love story” and our guests complimented us on it all night! She also acted as a sort of wedding planner, keeping things moving, on time, wrangling wayward guests and coordinating the evening. We honestly could not be happier that she was able to officiate our big day and we can not recommend her enough.

    Thank you Amanda! From your New Orleans proposal, whiskey barrel unity ceremony, and love of The Office, anyone can see that you and Nick are definitely going to have some fantastic adventures together! Writing your ceremony & being a part of the beginning of your life as Husband & Wife, was a happy experience for me and my team! Cheers to LOVE! Eileen

  • When we met with Eileen we had no idea what we would do with our ceremony. She made us feel so comfortable and gave us great ideas. She wrote a beautiful ceremony for us and had her amazing partner Jeannie marry us on our special day! Jeannie was absolutely amazing working with our family and I couldn't imagine anyone else marrying us.

    responded with the following comments.

    Thank you Ashton! Jeannie & I loved meeting you & Christian! You two are so clearly meant to be together! Your excitement & love for each other made writing & Officiating your ceremony a sweet, happy experience for everyone!! "... a moment when there’s nothing else to lose, nothing left to fly, nothing in the world that could change your mind. (😉❤️🎶) Cheers to Love! Eileen & Jeannie

  • Dave and I met with Eileen for an hour to discuss our ideas for the ceremony. She listened and provided great suggestions. We were thankful for the well thought out ceremony, perfectly executed by Eileen. Her referral for the ceremony musician Mia Green added even more to a lovely ceremony. Thanks Eileen!

    I loved meeting your beautiful, blended family. I could feel the love between all of you and it is a WONDERFUL thing! I was so happy to be a part of your new beginning! Eileen

  • Wow! We got married this past weekend, and we're still totally in awe of Eileen; we seriously couldn't have asked for a better officiant! She has such a bright and joyful presence, and we knew as soon as we met her a few months ago that we wanted to work with her -- and I'm so, so glad we did. Eileen not only wrote the most beautiful ceremony script for our day (it literally moved us to tears), but she also followed up immediately after with information on how to obtain our certified copies of our marriage license and how to change my name. Not to mention the fact that she also delayed her vacation so she could officiate our day. If that doesn't say she's committed to her couples, I don't know what does. Eileen is an incredible woman and wedding professional, and we would work with her again in a heartbeat.

    Awww... It was an absolute joy to be a part of such a grand & sweet love story! Your complete & genuine happiness filled the air! Cheers to love and all that it brings! Eileen

  • Eileen was so fantastic to work with! She is so sweet and passionate about what she does, and it definitely shows in her work. When we first met Eileen she was so interested in hearing our story, listened to our thoughts and feelings about what we were looking for, and made us feel comfortable that she would able to give us the ceremony we desired. Eileen was very helpful with providing different ceremony styles, readings, and ideas. She was always available for questions, and never made me feel as if my concerns were not important. During the rehearsal she gave great directions, and helped to hammer out important details that I had not thought of. Thanks to Eileen our big day was perfect! The ceremony was everything we could have wanted. I am so happy that we found Down the Aisle, and had the opportunity to work with Eileen. She was also very prompt with submitting our marriage license and providing us with documents we would need after the marriage was legalized. Give Eileen a ... Read more

  • We had a great experience working with Eileen! She put together a wonderful ceremony script and did a very nice job of responding to emails/phone calls in a timely manner. Eileen is very professional and helped keep us calm throughout all of the planning.

  • We met with Eileen about a year out from our wedding date and spent an hour with her telling her our story and what vision we had for our wedding ceremony. Eileen was the sweetest person and we loved her energy and just knew she was the officiant we wanted to share our special day. Throughout the entire process Eileen was there for us with any questions we needed. The week before the wedding we received our ceremony script and it was perfect - NOT one change was requested. She described our relationship perfectly and we immediately felt the love. We received so many compliments on how well written the script was. We would recommend Eileen to anyone looking for the most perfect officiant to celebrate their big day. Eileen, thank you for everything! We are forever grateful for you!

    LOVED working with both of you and writing your love story... "when the heart is ready, and the timing is right anything and everything can, and did happen!" When I read your kind review, I immediately thought of how HAPPY, in LOVE and GORGEOUS you both looked on your wedding day! Cheers to LOVE! Eileen Stevens

  • Eileen (and Helen) were so awesome! We had a one of a kind ceremony script and it was beautiful! Even though our original officiant, Eileen, got her foot stomped on by a horse, she had a GREAT backup, Helen, and there were no worries because she was up to speed on our special day, as if she was our original officiant. They were both so awesome!

    Awww... Liz, thank you so much! I was so sad not to be there for you and Ben... yet I KNEW Helen would step in (no pun intended!) and take great care of you! She loved meeting both of you, your family and friends and called me immediately after she left to tell me all about it! We are so lucky to have such beautiful couples... inside and out! Cheers to love! Eileen & Helen

  • Jamie was fantastic to work with! From the first time we FaceTimed her, she was so nice and genuine. We knew we had to work with her. She took the time to get to know us and it really showed in our ceremony. Eileen did a great job writing it and Jamie delivered it flawlessly. We got so many complements from our guests afterwards saying it was spot on and so unique. Jamie really went above and beyond. We had a cute marriage form we wanted filled out by her and instead she took it after our rehearsal and had someone she knew fill it out using calligraphy! We were so glad we chose Jamie as our officiant and would recommend her to everyone!

  • Eileen is amazing, plain and simple. She is so upbeat and fun to work with, and she genuinely LOVES this job, which means her energy radiates through her personality and into your ceremony. We first met with a video chat so she could interview us, which was a great way to also interview her. You will find that not only is she very detail-oriented, but the way that she speaks also captivates people. We met with a few officiants before Eileen and, not to be rude, but hygiene was often an issue when meeting with other people. Either they were unkempt or sloppy and we knew the officiant was going to be in all of our pictures on our wedding day (and the focal point of our ceremony), so it was imperative that we worked with someone who made it a point to dress and appear professionally - and Eileen most certainly does that! I know we weren't the only couple who worries about that, so I want to make sure my review says as much to help you all out! I cannot say enough about how great ... Read more

    Thank you for taking the time to write and share your experience with other couples! Wow! Your review was incredibly kind... it made me tear up a bit! It was MY absolute pleasure and honor to meet you and be a part of your wedding day memories! You had a dream wedding... right out of the storybooks! I say it often and I'm going to say it again now... I have THE BEST JOB! Can't wait to see the photos!!! Eileen

  • Eileen and her team did a wonderful job with our wedding ceremony and day-of coordination! She was the only officiant we met with who actually took the time to get to know us and our story before we even booked her. For us, adding on the day-of coordinator package helped us relax and focus on the important details and greatly reduced our stress on the day. Our ceremony was custom written for us and absolutely perfect!! We got so many compliments after the fact. I can't recommend Eileen and her team enough!

    Watching the two of you interact, the stories you shared with me, and your excitement about your future, made writing and officiating your ceremony so much fun! My team and I were also thrilled to pull it all together with our Day Of Coordinator services! Nothing made us happier than to assist in any way we could to make sure your wedding day was everything you dreamed of! Thank you for trusting us! Can't wait to see more photos! Eileen, Jamie, Erica
