  • 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.

  • We searched and searched for the perfect person to marry us and we finally found Cara Tollefson. We talked on the phone and emailed, until we finally met in person at a cute little coffee shop. Cara was able to meet all of our needs as a couple and give us ideas when we had no idea what we were doing. She was also able to work with us when we were changing things last minute at the rehearsal and the day of the wedding! We are so happy that we found her to be a part of our wedding and also grateful that she made it so easy for us. The day of the wedding was more relaxed than we thought it would be and it was truly wonderful. Thank you Cara!!!

  • 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!

  • We used Cara Tollefson as our officiant and I can’t say enough good things about her. She was so quick to respond to all e-mails. She is one of the sweetest ladies I’ve ever met-such a genuine person and the biggest heart. I was extremely nervous before the ceremony started and she helped calm my nerves so much and honestly I’m not sure how the ceremony would have gone without her. She is such a great speaker and all of our guests commented on how great she was and how found her :) 10/10 would recommend her to anyone!

  • We had Cara Tollefson as our officiant. She had done a friend's wedding a few years ago and both of us decided she would be perfect for our ceremony. The book we received walked us through the options we had and Cara was available for any questions. The entire ceremony was personalized for us and we really enjoyed the reflections love story portion of the ceremony. We had many guests come up to us and say it was the best ceremony they have ever attended because of how personalized it was.
