  • We loved working with Darlene and Ed! They were super nice and easy to get in touch with throughout the whole process. Darlene gave me so many options for our ceremony that I was able to pick the perfect one for us as a couple. People thought Darlene knew us personally she did such a nice job. Ed also did a great job capturing our vision for the music for the night -- we kept getting so many complements from our guests about the soundtrack. I highly recommend them for anyone looking for a DJ or officiant/or both!!!

  • My husband was being deployed and we decided to get married last minute before he left. Darlene at Personal Touch came through for us and gave us the most perfect, beautiful wedding in a week's time! She came up with the wedding location near her business, a charming park in Hope, RI where we were married in a lovely gazebo on an amazing summer evening. There were so many wonderful places there for pictures and the ceremony that Darlene customized for us brought me to tears. It was beyond anything I imagined. The perfect, perfect, perfect wedding and all done in a week! Darlene is hands-down the best professional in the business and anyone who wants to ensure that they have one less thing to worry about on the most important day of their lives should absolutely hire Personal Touch for their wedding ceremony.

  • We booked Darlene Schlesinger @ Personal Touch Ceremonies for our wedding. Prior to our wedding, we had an initial phone consultation with her to book, and then communicated via email until our rehearsal, which is where we met in person. While initially I was hesitant about not meeting our officiant until the day prior to our wedding, Darlene was very available to us by phone/email which eased my anxiety. She allowed us the flexibility to write our own ceremony completely, and provided us with feedback along the way. She was absolutely wonderful at our rehearsal, and is overall just a fun friendly person to be around. Unfortunately, due to a family emergency, she ended up being unable to be the officiant on our actual wedding day, however kept us well informed and lined up a replacement officiant for us, Stephanie, who was able to perform the ceremony without issue!

  • We can’t even begin to express how amazing our wedding day was and Darlene was a huge part of that! We wanted a fun and personal ceremony and we could not be more elated with the outcome. It was absolutely beautiful and surpassed all of our expectations! Darlene had us and our guest laughing while never taking away from the true purpose or importance of the ceremony. We have received countless compliments as to how absolutely beautiful and touching the ceremony was, a few people asked us if Darlene was a personal friend of ours, and two of our vendors even told us that it was one of the best ceremonies they have ever seen! Thank you Darlene from the bottom of our hearts for helping to make our wedding day absolutely perfect!!!

  • Darlene was absolutely wonderful. She was so kind and helpful through the entire process. Even though she could not perform my ceremony, she coordinated everything and connected us with an officiant she has worked with in the past. From start to finish our ceremony was perfect because of Personal Touch Ceremonies.

  • Darlene did a wonderful job during our ceremony. Having wrote the ceremony ourselves, we were uncertain how it would be executed, but Darlene nailed it! She did a great job keeping it lighthearted and had us laughing throughout the entire ceremony. She was also great at promptly responding throughout the entire planning process. My only piece of advice: My husband and I wanted to have a personal ceremony and having not done this before, we thought we'd have some input and help from the officiant on making one that incorporated personal elements. We ended up having to create it on our own, which turned out perfect in the end, but just wasn't aware of this in the beginning. Darlene provides many useful sample ceremonies, but it was up to us to build the ceremony we wanted. Overall, Darlene was great and we'd recommend her for any ceremony!

  • Darlene and Ed were very professional and easy to work with. Darlene officiated our wedding and sent us various scripts for the ceremony, which we used to compose what we considered our “perfect” ceremony. She was so warm when she performed the ceremony, she helped to calm both our nerves. Ed did a wonderful job with both the music for our ceremony and acting as DJ for our reception. Everyone had a great time and it was definitely a day to remember and that all of our friends and family are still talking about. Thank you, Darlene and Ed!
