  • When it came time to hire the officiant for our wedding, we were relieved when we met Denise. Her professionalism and organization really impressed both of us. She was personable during our initial meeting and put us both at ease. We loved all of the options she provided for us when it came to writing our ceremony, and she made herself available for any questions we had. She had a calmness about her during our ceremony that certainly made me feel better and helped me stay in the moment. We would highly recommend!

  • Denise was a wonderful officiant! She gave us guidance on potential options for our ceremony but was also open to anything non-traditional that we wanted to do. Due to COVID we had some changes along the way. She was always extremely understanding and responsive. Highly recommend!

  • Denise was truly amazing! She was fine to completely do everything or work with the material I provided. She made my best person cry during the rehearsal and the ceremony and did an amazing job wrangling participants who drank too much. We didn't have nearly all the details ironed out but she ensured it all went super smooth--even our Iranian sugar ceremony. More than that, she made me feel beautiful and important and I would recommend her to anyone!

  • Denise was an incredible officiant for us. We found her on WeddingWire and are so glad we went with her. From the moment we met her in our initial meeting, we could tell she was going to provide us with a service that would be unique to us. We wanted a very short ceremony that was intimate and still capture the emotions we were feeling that day. Denise was so accommodating in helping us design a ceremony and vows that would be a true testament to our relationship. She did a great job keeping the ceremony rolling and making sure we were prepared through the rehearsal. My husband and I did not want a very religious ceremony, and Denise was great at helping us to come up with a way to incorporate a short prayer but then highlight the other aspects of marriage as well. We would highly recommend Denise to anyone who is in search of an officiant who is experienced, organized, and flexible!

  • Something just felt right starting from our initial contact with Denise. We had several questions along the way and Denise gave us not only the answers we needed but other suggestions we had not considered. Our wedding experience was wonderful, and having Reverend Denise Gonyea as our officiant made it that much more special. All the best, David & Angel.

    David and Angel, I so appreciate your kind words! Thank you! You are such a wonderful couple. I really enjoyed working with you both. I wish you an amazing married life together.

  • I honestly can't say enough good things! Denise was very helpful and understanding. She worked with us to get everything just right, and was on the ball with everything from last minute paperwork to unforeseeable schedule changes. We would have been totally lost without her.
