  • I worked close with Emily who provided me and my husband Patrick with a great ceremony. The ceremony featured jumping the broom, vows, laughs, and cries. However, what prompted all these great events during my wedding was the lovely and profoundly informative program Emily presented. The way she took our experiences and wrote them into our ceremony was beyond beautiful. You'll get no better experience and the price is really too low for the amount of time and quality she puts into the ceremony. Loved my experience and now she's going to be a honorary member of my family!

  • We highly recommend Smitten State Wedding! We had a very simple ceremony at Nichols Arboretum on May 19, and Emily was our officiant. We are absolutely satisfied! Emily is very patient and considerate. We had a face to face meeting with her when we are still browsing officiants. At that time, she listened to our stories earnestly, and helped clarify all of our questions. In addition, Smitten State Wedding offers a variety of services that we can customize the ceremony easily. So we immediately decided to have her as our officiant after the meeting. We chose the Prewritten Ceremony, Emily has done an excellent job! She delivered fabulous readings, incorporated with lyrics from our favorite Beatles' songs! The ceremony is romantic and impressive, definitely beyond our expectations. Thank you Emily, for creating such an unforgettable memory for our lifetime.

  • It was a pleasure to have Emily as our wedding officiant. We had a small outdoor ceremony under a tree and it was perfect!! The words she wrote for our ceremony was wonderful, everyone who attended the ceremony was so moved! She was so easy to work with and so flexible and it was a great experience. We are glad we found Smitten State Weddings during this difficult times and Emily made our day so memorable! Thank you Emily :-)

  • We were so incredibly fortunate to find Emily! She has such a positive, upbeat personality and is incredibly passionate and skilled at what she does. The ceremony she wrote for us could not have been more perfect! It was absolutely beautiful the way she was able to describe the love in our relationship! She also included our kids wonderfully in the ceremony so they could be a big part of our special day as we blended families. She was amazing at the rehearsal and did an exceptional job to coordinate everything to make sure our ceremony was seamless. Because of her calming presence and expertise we had no stress at the ceremony because she had prepared everything so extraordinarily well and we knew everything would be just perfect - and it was! She is exceptionally well spoken and performed the ceremony even better than we had dreamed! We are so thankful to have had the privilege of Emily marrying us, and we can't recommend her enough! Thank you Emily and Smitten State for making our da... Read more

  • Working with Biz and Emmy was an absolute pleasure! We could not have been happier with the ceremony. They did such a great job capturing the essence of our relationship with small details and anecdotes. Even close family and friends learned something new about us as a couple. A number of guests came up to us afterward to tell us how much they enjoyed the ceremony which is not something you hear a lot at weddings. It was definitely the highlight of the day. We highly recommend them if you are looking for an officiant.

  • Biz and Emmy were both wonderful! Our vows were beautifully written, original, and really captured our relationship-and we received many compliments from guests on our vows! On the day of our wedding Emmy was a fantastic officiant! Very well spoken, and such a warm personality! I can't say enough nice things about Biz and Emmy, everything was so incredibly smooth, I would recommend Smitten State Weddings to anyone!

  • Biz and Emmy were so friendly and easy to work with. We wanted something small and private, so we had an elopement ceremony with just us and our photographers on Belle Isle. Emmy was our officiant, and the ceremony was beautiful. We wrote our own vows, and Biz and Emmy were kind enough to read over them in advance to make sure they went together okay (similar length/ tone). Even though we planned something non-traditional, we always felt like Biz and Emmy were on the same page as us. We were so lucky to find them, and I can't imagine anyone else being our officiant!

  • Professional, knowledgable, and incredibly friendly, Biz gave us the exact (rather untraditional) wedding we wanted. My partner and I knew we wanted to have a wedding with different traditions from around the world, and Biz designed a ceremony that, for one, re-worked a Japanese sake ceremony. Not only was Biz able to write us a ceremony that felt perfectly fitting to our relationship, she doubled as a wedding planner. She gave us all the information we needed when we had to plan our wedding in only a month; and on the day, she made sure our guests were happy and knew what was happening. In short: She made our day the success it was. Thank you, Smitten State Weddings, for giving us such a special marriage ceremony!

  • After dragging our feet for a long time about getting married, we finally decided to JUST DO IT already with a quick family ceremony. We weren't in need of a big fancy shindig. Biz was 100% accommodating and would have showed up wherever we wanted her to. As it was, she got there in a snow storm for our living room ceremony. We expected it to just be some quick "I do"s followed by paperwork, but she managed to make it even more than that, with tears and everything. It was perfect.

  • When we got engaged, we both knew we wanted Biz to perform our ceremony. My husband is shy and I am a nervous speaker, so we also wanted her to compose it! We knew it was a big task but we were confident she would come up with something personal, witty and unique. We told her what we wanted it to include(cartoon references, Star Wars references, etc) , approximately how long we wanted it to be and that we wanted as little speaking parts as possible! We also wanted it to be a surprise, so she made time to meet with each of our best friends to make sure it was just right. She delivered! Our wedding would not have been the same without her. There was laughter and tears from us as well as our guests. I never get bored re-watching our wedding video. It was a one of a kind ceremony and I would not change a thing!
