  • We chose Helen as our officiant for our informal; elopement at Spring Lake. She performed the ceremony so eloquently that it touched my heart and gave me happy tears. Helen was so easy to work with. She stayed on top of all the small details; was always fast at replying to my e-mails and change requests. She provided us with several sample vow ceremony choices. She was always helpful and patient during the planning process. She even hand-carried our license to the recorder’s office instead of mailing. She takes her role as a wedding officiant very seriously and is eager to please and make everyone happy! We definitely recommend her to anyone who appreciates personal attention and someone who is easy to work with: is kind and respectful. She made our informal wedding an awesome day to remember!

  • Helen was pleasant from the first time we spoke with her on the phone. Helen is so sweet, she pays attention to what YOU want to say on your special day. I Love how she made us feel so comfortable with her and at the moment we knew we wanted to hire her. Up to our day she always kept in contact to make sure our vows were up to our liking which she did an AMAZING job on our wedding day. I will hire Helen over and over she is wonderful. Thank you Helen for being you, and making our wedding day great with you being our officiant.

  • Helen was an absolute joy to work with for our wedding. We were very nervous and didn't really have an idea about how different types of ceremonies could be held, but Helen was very patient and generous with explaining common types of ceremonies and asking us questions so she could get to know us and make personalized recommendations. In the end, we had a very lovely ceremony that we will be able to cherish.

    Thank you so much, James. Being the officiant for you and Jie at Fairview's Foxtail Golf Course was a wonderful experience for me. I'm happy you were pleased and I appreciate your review. Many happy years, Helen

  • We hired Helen as a back-up emergency officiant, in case our friend was too nervous to conduct our ceremony. Our friend successfully married us, so we didn't get to work with Helen on the day-of our big day, however, for months leading up, she was an excellent resource: she reviewed the ceremony script we wrote and gave helpful feedback, suggestions and experience she's had at our venue. Her knowledge was priceless, and she checked in with us regularly to see if and how she could help, with anything! She truly went above and beyond and provided so much comfort knowing she was just a call or text away if we needed her to show up. You can tell she loves officiating and helping make ceremonies as special as possible because of the care she exudes. Thank you, Helen, for being part of our day in all the ways you were!

  • Helen officiated our wedding on December 1st, 2018. She was truly helpful in helping us craft a ceremony that was right for us: simple, egalitarian, and including wine! Helen is so responsive and doesn't do "cookie cutter" ceremonies. What was important to her was what was important to us. She stuck with us through the stress of the wedding, even offering a sympathetic ear unrelated to to the ceremony. She submitted our paperwork without prompting and faster than expected. I am very happy to have found an officiant who truly does it because she loves love. Thank you, Helen, for helping us have a fantastic introduction to our marriage.

    Dear Teresa, Thank you so much for taking time to write this review. I loved officiating at your beautiful venue. May you have many years of happiness. If you ever want to do a vow renewal, it would be gift to you to officate. Best wishes, Helen

  • Yes, We recommend Helen Emberly!!!!!! My husband and I were married in September 2018 by Helen. She has a warm smile and is very friendly. When we had our first meeting, I knew she would be the one! We were able to bond during the process of customizing our ceremony and had great referrals. Helen rocks at what she does!! But most importantly is that she does out of love and care for others. -Mr.&Mrs. Reyes

  • My husband and I highly recommend Helen to officiate your wedding. She is sweet, professional and efficient with putting a custom ceremony together. She will give you lots of options of how you can have your ceremony and also offer great ideas for any personal rituals you would like to add. She helped guide us with her many ideas and sample ceremonies. Especially since we were having a hard time figuring out what we wanted to say! It was great! She helped take the pressure off of us and eased our minds. We felt very comfortable having her officiate our wedding and we’re so happy she was available. Thank you, Helen!

  • Helen was our officiant for our wedding in August. She was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. Helen was very responsive, easy to reach via email, and always offered great advice whenever we asked for her opinion. When we reached out to a few officiants when first looking, Helen stood out as she was really friendly and approachable, and her pricing was very reasonable. She provided a lot of example vows and ceremonies, and we were able to pick and choose which parts we like, and incorporated personalized vows / sections as well. Helen was very flexible and offered great tips. We highly recommend her!!

  • From the first meeting with Helen she made us feel at ease. Helen handled all with great professionalism and assisted us with choosing our vows. She was with us during rehearsal and made sure we were comfortable with how the ceremony would be presented. On our wedding day everything went smoothly and was delivered sincerely and wonderfully by Helen. We were so happy. We definitely would recommend her to anyone requiring an officiant. Thanks again for making our day special. (Eric & Reena)
