  • Denise was wonderful and really came through for us. When we originally met through FaceTime she spent a good hour talking to us about what her ceremonies are about, and wanted to know exactly what we wanted. Right away we knew we wanted her to perform our ceremony. Due to unfortunate circumstances we had to reschedule our wedding because of the coronavirus pandemic. However we still needed to get married. Denise was super gracious to allow us to meet her at her house, and perform a quick ceremony (just my fiancé and myself) to get us married. We still fully intend to have Denise attend our wedding and performer ceremony when the time comes. I will write another review post-wedding

  • We chose Denise to marry us and could not be happier. She was great to work with from the very start and all throughout. She was on time to our meeting, responded very quickly to texts and always made herself available to answer any questions. She showed up early to the wedding and mingled with the guests. People commented about how personable she was and how they thought she knew us for years. She wrote a beautiful ceremony for us! She mailed in our marriage license promptly and provided us with a tracking number which I thought was very professional. We received our certificate from the state by the time we got back from our honeymoon! Again, we couldn't be happier with her and highly recommend.

  • When we decided to get married we looked for an officiant online. This was our second marriage so we wanted just a short but sweet ceremony. When speaking to Denise I found her easy to talk to and explained what we wanted....Spiritual but not too religious. She emailed us her rough draft of the ceremony and we edited only one part. I never met Denise but we had a few long conversations on the phone and I knew she was a great choice as our officiant. Our date and location was changed due to Covid 19 and she was very accommodating as well with the change. It turns out she gave us a beautiful ceremony. My guests came to me and said the same thing. Can't thank Denise enough! I would recommend her to my friends and family in need of her service. She's wonderful and kind and highly recommended!

    Thank you Lisa and Andy! It was my honor and delight and I wish you both many years of love! Denise

  • When my fiance and I started the ceremony process with my church I had gone to all my life, we came up against quite a few obstacles. One being the price was almost three times what we had been quoted by Denise. Denise's ceremony was not a generic ceremony but one that was custom created and spoke to our hearts. We loved that ceremony, and our family and guests thought it was wonderful also. We would recommend Denise because she listens, gives you what you want, and puts her heart into pleasing her couples. What turned out to be a worrisome issue turned out to be a lovely ceremony.

  • When we first spoke to Denise she made us feel very comfortable and like she actually cared about what we had to say. She was very responsive throughout the process and was willing to incorporate what we wanted. She submitted a few drafts and examples for us to look through. She is extremely caring.

  • I am so happy that we went with Denise for our wedding! She is the best. She wrote the most beautiful ceremony and I received so many compliments from my family on how nice her words were. They really touched my heart. I would absolutely recommend Denise to any of my friends! She really takes the time to know you so she can write a ceremony that fits your relationship. I was also able to have a nice print out of the ceremony as a keepsake. I hope we even stay in touch! Love, Kristin D.

  • We met Denise and instantly knew this woman was going to make our big day even better, just by being a part of it. She is so genuine and takes her position very seriously! She's prompt with every response and never leaves a single question unanswered. My fiance and I are very down to earth and sometimes forgetful, so when she reminded me about the things we needed to get her, I was so thankful! She looks out for you and helps in every way she can. We couldn't be happier!

  • I'm so glad we chose Denise to officiate our wedding. She wrote us the most thoughtful ceremony and we had received so many compliments about how lovely it was from our guests! Everyone who attended was so emotionally moved by her words. She was so easy to work with and I can't recommend her enough!

  • My fiancé and I met with Denise when we were looking for an officiant and instantly felt a connection with her. To be honest, I was pretty much sold just from our email conversation setting up the meeting! She was friendly, warm, super engaged, and genuinely interested in getting to know about us and our relationship. We had so much fun filling out the questionnaire (or as my fiancé called it "writing our love story") Denise uses to get all the information she needs to write her ceremonies and cannot wait until the end of September for our wedding!

    I loved writing your Love Story and incorporating the reading - which fit you both - into the ceremony! Denise xo

  • I very highly recommend Denise. She was amazing from start to finish. I had a very small wedding with only 12 guests. I wanted a short and sweet ceremony and that’s exactly what we got, only it was better than I could have hoped for. Denise made it so personal and meaningful for us. We spoke on the phone and via email during the planning, and the day went just perfectly. Before she wrote our vows she asked my husband and I to write down what we were looking forward to in out marriage, and we really enjoyed that. She even incorporated some of what we said in our vows. She also knew I didn’t want him to see me before the ceremony. Since there was a long walk out to the gazebo where we had the ceremony, she didn’t let him look until I was at the door! I really appreciated that because I got to see his reaction to seeing me for the first time. It was such a special day made even more special by Denise! Any couple would be lucky to have her officiate their wedding!

    Elizabeth I loved officiating your heartwarming ceremony! And yes - it was very worth that look on Luke's face - priceless! Denise xo

  • No words can't express how much My wife Amanda and I are thankful we got Denise Drapkin to officiate our wedding. Her Mother like approach she gave to us made my wife and I feel at ease and comfortable. I felt like it was nothing in the world she would have do for us and that's what we want from all our Vendors. Our Ceremony was a breeze and it was all thanks to Denise.

  • We are forever grateful for the beautiful ceremony that Denise put together for myself and my wife for our wedding day! We initially spoke with Denise via FaceTime to introduce ourselves and for her to get to know us to see if we would be a good match. After an hour of FaceTime, we felt like Denise was an old friend. She was absolutely amazing to work with from the beginning! She took her time in speaking with us. She not only wanted to get to know the both of us, she wanted to know our individual reasonings for why we fell in love with each other and why are choosing one another to love for eternity. She took our answers from our questionnaires and put together the most beautiful ceremony. We wanted some aspects of a traditional Jewish wedding and she implemented them perfectly. We HIGHLY recommend Denise to everyone! She is such a kind and caring individual who will give you her all to make sure that you get the perfect ceremony.

    Dear Arianne & Matthew- How I loved telling your beautiful love story! Thank you for the privilege! Best Denise xo I Wed All

  • Denise did my wedding August 11, 2019 and it was the best decision we ever made. The ceremony was custom made to our personal love story, beginning with how and where we met to the present of exchanging vows! She was also able to integrate my loved ones as well as my Filipino customs of veil/cord and candle ceremony rituals. She is such a creative writer in which she draws you in to the story of the couple and as well as explaining the meanings of the rituals. Denise thank you for making our wedding extra special! I definitely recommend her to everyone.
