  • The wedding ceremony my wife and I had was very well thought out. Rev. Courtenay makes an effort to get to know her clients as much as possible through the planning process to cater to the couple as much as possible in creating their ceremony. We were very satisfied with the services offered throughout the entire process.

    Thank you for your kind review, Tasha. It was such a pleasure to work with you and your wife, and to plan the perfect ceremony for you both!

  • From the first time we seen Firenze wedding Ministries online we just knew they were goinf to be right for us, after our first messages we were set. I could not have imagined anyone else to bless our perfect day, they both went above and beyons to make our wedding day exactly like we asked. Any questions, they came back with a quick response. No matter what day, they always made me feel like they were excited about this as much as we were. We were able to write our own vows and she made sure our wedding was completley personalised to us. She got to know us and our story, she became more of a friend. We were able to incorporate a beautiful handfasting into the ceremony which really was the icing on the cake. We used their premises and im so glad we did, we were even able to have cats there (crazy cat lady here!) They even took pictures for us! And we were able to have our own music. They really went above and beyond, which made us feel special. Our wedding went without a hitch, ... Read more

  • Rev. Courtenay was amazing! Our ceremony was beautiful. The readings, the message of love was exactly what we wanted! Our original wedding date was postponed due to a serious car accident driving home from our rehearsal dinner. My daughter was seriously injured and spent a few days at Golisano Children’s Hospital. When I reached out to Rev. Courtenay she came to sit with my daughter at the hospital. When we were finally able to reschedule the wedding, it meant so much to me for her to see my daughter walking down the aisle as my maid of honor. Such a beautiful day!

  • Reverend Courtenay did an absolutely amazing job at creating the perfect ceremony for us! Not only did she make our ceremony deeply meaningful and customized to our life, she guided us through the whole process from beginning to end and anticipated our needs. She is extremely professional, very personable, quick to respond, and is amazing at creating the perfect day! Plus she was the only one that could calm the nerves of my groom before the ceremony started! We would recommend Rev. Courtaney to anyone and would not have changed a thing, all our guests were blown away with the ceremony!

  • Rev. Courtenay was simply a joy to work with. She was kind and understanding. I would not of been able to pull me wedding together without her and her day of coordinator, Courtney. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful. I don't think it could have been any better.

  • We met Rev. Courtenay and we loved everything she had to offer. She was able to conceptualize us as a couple. She was very responsive via email. We were not a fan of what she wore to our wedding (but in hindsight we didn't even think that would be something we would care about), so if you really care about that make sure you ask what is she going to wear and that you plan accordingly. She was very accommodating in that she wore something with pockets so video could capture our vows, etc. She was also very accommodating in that she attended rehearsal and was great. Other than the dress choice, the only struggle was that Rev. Courtenay didn't send in our wedding license right away and when she did send it she dated our wedding date incorrectly. She wrote in our rehearsal day versus our wedding day. She also wrote in the wrong town of where we got married. You can imagine the level of frustration and stress that fell over us. That put a damper on a lot of things because then our wedding c... Read more

    Thank you so much for your kind review, Diandra and Brandon! It was my sincere pleasure to create your dream Ceremony, and to preside over it as your celebrant. I totally agree with the portion of your review where you state how frustrating it was to alter your license after my mistake, and again, I offer my sincere apologies. It was sent out to the clerk within the five business days required by NYS law, but I do understand how my mistake in noting your wedding date incorrectly frustrated you. The clerk and I resolved this as quickly as possible, as per my personal resolve to meet every need for couples that I work with. However, I would really like to respond to your statement that my attire to your ceremony was not to your liking and/or inappropriate for your ceremony. At your rehearsal, we conversed briefly before I left regarding whether or not you would like me to wear my ecclesiastical robes and stole, to which you replied that you would like that. As my robes do not have any overt religious symbols on them, many couples enjoy when I do wear them. They are off white, as is the color of robes for ministers celebrating weddings. Underneath, I wore an appropriate burgundy lace dress which falls below my knees, and my black pumps. I apologize if any of this was not to your liking, and ask you to please email me with what you found not to be to your liking so that I may make sure in the future to discuss this with couples. I've included a shot of us after your ceremony in my photo stream here, so that couples browsing your review may take into consideration your words. Many blessings to you on your marriage! Warmly, Rev. Courtenay

  • Courtenay was so great to work with! We were planning our wedding from out of state and she was very accommodating. We had a few phone conversations and she really understood what we were looking for. She put together a beautiful ceremony, incorporating all the things we wanted and executed it perfectly!
