  • Cara Tollefson conducted our civil ceremony this summer, and we were so pleased! Cara was responsive and attentive to the details, helped guide the ceremony based on our ideas and style, and was thorough with submitting our license and following up to ensure we received our final marriage license from the state in a timely manner.

  • I did a search for local wedding officiants online and ran across One of a Kind. After reading the officiant profiles I contacted Cara Tollefson to talk more about my finance and my wedding ideas. Since this was both of our second marriages, we wanted a ceremony that was simple, yet elegant and meaningful to us, our adult children, and our relatives/friends who would be attending.. From day one, my fiancée and I both had a connection to Cara. She was genuine, caring, responsive, timely, thoughtful, and had a few great suggestions for how things could flow through the ceremony, where we stood, how long we looked at each other and/or held hands and making sure we practiced a long kiss for photo takers. We had no wedding party so she had us do a walkthrough anyways when we met with her a couple of weeks before the wedding. This really calmed our nerves and made us relax and enjoy the wedding ceremony. Nothing but compliments from all our guests on how the wedding played out. I highly re... Read more

  • We had a great experience working with Jill for our wedding. We reached out with pretty short notice, and she was prompt, detailed, and very helpful in helping us put together the perfect ceremony.

  • Jill Englund was absolutely perfect! She was very fun, friendly, informative and guided us through the ceremony process the whole time. We loved being able to customize the ceremony prayers, vows, and ideas so that it was not the typical rhetoric but unique to us. I highly recommend Jill for all future couples!

  • We were honored to have Cara Tollefson officiate our wedding last weekend. We were forced to downsize our wedding (by a lot) due to COVID, but Cara helped ensure that it was just as special with only 20 guests as it would’ve been with 150. With Cara’s guidance, we were able to turn our wedding into an intimate, romantic ceremony that was so very “us”, which was reinforced by our guests telling us how wonderful it was, and that it is a wedding they wouldn’t forget :) The information packets Cara provided us in the beginning were extremely helpful in organizing our ceremony and the examples were great starting points to help us write out our ceremony. She was very receptive to our ideas, provided great feedback, and helped us create our own wedding “ritual” that everyone loved. She helped us make our ceremony absolutely everything we wanted it to be! Not only that, Cara is extremely sweet and personable and SO easy to talk to, and quick to respond to our questions.

  • Jill was excellent. She listened and asked us questions ahead of the ceremony that connected her to our values and preferences and then she honored them. She provided guidance, options, and samples to consider. As our ceremony was during Covid-19, she was both respectful of our precautions and assisted with additional suggestions.

  • We worked with the lovely Officiant, Cara Tollefson. She did a wonderful and awesome job officiating our ceremony and guiding us through the whole process. We also managed to do marriage counseling with her weeks before our wedding and Cara was so accommodating into squeezing our sessions into her busy schedule so last minute. We found that doing marriage counseling was very fun and beneficial for us as a couple and enjoyed her advice and input on so many things. She was also great at communicating with both of us through email and would reply back to us right away. We also had fun planning out our entire wedding ceremony outline and Cara was so great at giving back suggestions and input on it. She really was such a pleasure to work with and her direction during the last couple of months really helped ease our minds. We appreciate her being so easy to work with, communicate with and just her attention to the details. She did a great job. We are both looking forward to working with her ... Read more

  • We planned our wedding in about 2 months. Mn officiants was speedy with responding to our email request if anyone was available ( we don’t have a pastor we are close with ) after we set up details everything went very smoothly. She answered all our questions, made suggestions and made us feel comfortable enough to speak up when something needed to be changed. I would highly recommend this team of officiants.

  • We used Allan Lindgren for our ceremony after a family emergency prevented us from using our original officiant. Allan Lindgren stepped in the day before and literally saved our wedding. Very personable, great presentation and highly professional. He guided us through the ceremony effortlessly and made us feel very comfortable. All of our guests genuinely commented on how it was the best wedding they have ever been to! We highly recommend Allan!

  • Jill Englund was our officiant, and she was terrific! We were looking for an officiant for a nondenominational, outdoor ceremony. Jill met with us in person, provided helpful outlines of sample ceremonies, and followed up promptly via text and email. We weren't exactly sure what we wanted but she asked us some questions to get a sense of what our values and personalities were. We loved the idea of the "love story" to make our ceremony authentic to us, and we got so much positive feedback from guests who loved hearing the story of us! Jill has such a soothing presence and also took command of ceremony day-of details. She organized cues with the ceremony musicians and did a brief run-down with us to make sure we understood what to do (we didn't have attendants so did not have a rehearsal--she does offer that too as needed/wanted!). I was nervous about things running smoothly for the ceremony, but Jill took away all my worries! She was really a guiding presence to make sure the day... Read more

  • Jill Englund was fantastic! She helped guide us in creation of ceremony and had great suggestions when we hit some tricky choices. She lead our rehearsal ceremony with great 'teacher voice' and efficiency. Very profession and knowledgeable. She submitted all the paperwork as promised and quickly.

  • Jill Englund performed our ceremony and did an amazing job. We interviewed different officiants, and once we met with Jill, we knew she was the one. She was professional, organized, and kind throughout the entire process. She included us throughout the entire process and asked for consistent input. We felt like our ceremony was as personalized as it could get. By the time our ceremony was over, it was clear that our guests knew all about our love story and felt very connected. In addition, Jill worked closely with all of our children to make them feel a part of the process because it was very important to us. Our guests raved about how wonderful our ceremony was and couldn't say enough great things about Jill. We couldn't have been happier!

  • Cara Tollefson with MN officiants made our day a breeze! From our first meeting to the excitement after we said "I do" Cara was so sweet and helpful. I wouldn't have changed a thing. If you are looking for an officiant who will guide you to make your vision for your ceremony come true I highly suggest Cara.
