  • I found Rev Rita and Trace (the dynamic duo/husband and wife team behind Tie the Knot Officiating) through WeddingWire. Funny enough, I selected Rita because I saw that she officiated a wedding that was featured on Married at First Sight and my fiance and I were watching it the night before! We had the chance to consult with her twice on Zoom before meeting her and her husband in person a couple months before our wedding. Each time we talked with her, she was professional, charismatic, and was always one step ahead in terms of what we needed to do/prepare/write. It was so helpful, and she made us feel so comfortable and relaxed (who says that while wedding planning?!). Upon the initial consultation, she shared a guide with us about what rituals, verses, and vibes we'd like to include in our ceremony which helped us think outside the box. And once the wedding day(s) came around (yes, plural -- we used her services twice -- back to back for a family day then a friends day!), we were BLOW... Read more

  • Rita was awesome!!! My husband and I initially were going to get married later this year, we then decided we wanted to do a little ceremony sooner than later before our big wedding. Rita was amazing!! Although we let her know last minute, she took initiative and made sure everything was perfect!! And it was!! Her and her husband are a great team and I recommend them to anyone! She was very attentive to our needs and made everything special “your wedding your way” She definitely made this experience memorable and we will never forget the moment she helped create! 10/10 recommend, she will not disappoint!!!

  • My (now) husband and I were looking to have a simple beach wedding and were going to go with an officiate the DOH recommended- let me tell you, I am beyond glad we reconsidered! We just asked Rita to show up and officiate our small wedding on the beach, but she did so much more than that! Despite reaching out to her very last minute, she made our ceremony so personalized, as if we had known her for years. Her spirit is so welcoming and friendly- all our guests loved her! Not only did her and Tracey get the job done, they went above and beyond to make sure our day was special and our guests were comfortable. I would definitely recommend Rita and Tracey to anyone looking to get married whether the ceremony be big or small- they are awesome and provide much more than you pay for! Thank you guys for making our wedding day one to remember, I can't wait to have them back when my husband and I decide to renew our vows.

  • So my (now) husband and I decided to have an intimate marriage in Hawaii, but we planned everything extremely late, however Trace and Rev Rita were extremely accommodating and were able to officiate us on the day we wanted. From communication to service to unexpected gifts, Rev Rita and Trace just went completely above and beyond. We first filled out a questionnaire about our relationship, followed by a zoom call for Rev Rita to get to know us a bit more on a personal level. Since we planned everything fairly late and had no place in mind to get married, they suggested a beautiful private beach to host the ceremony. The set up with the music and ambiance was absolutely amazing. After the ceremony they even gave us a complimentary decorative certificate along with a video and some photos! Rev Rita was extremely responsive to any questions we had and even provided some feedback on our vows! She also printed them out for us on some fancy paper so we wouldn’t forget them the day of. I wo... Read more

  • Rita was amazing! When my then Fiancé and I had no clue what we were doing regarding the requirements of a wedding. She went out of her way to help us get the information we needed! She gave us hope that although it was now the weekend and last minute we could still potentially obtain a marriage license. Which we did! She was so flexible with her schedule and agreed to marry us with one days notice! And she made it so special! She listened to what we wanted and delivered, making us feel so comfortable! She made our special day even more special! Thank you Rita for all that you did for us and all that you do for others! -Lisa and Mark

  • My wife and I are beyond grateful to have found Rev. Rita. Not only is she the only one that extends services to the LGBT community but made our ceremony MEMORABLE! It was more perfect that we could ever have planned, imagined or prayed for. The communication, professionalism and attention to details was INCREDIBLE. Due to our families and friends been spread all over the world, she give us the gift of bringing them all together via zoom to witness our ceremony from their homes. We are forever grateful to her and her amazing team! God Bless you Rev. Rita and thank you for everything we did for us.

  • Rev. Reeta made this whole process a breeze. Between travel restrictions due to COVID, my unorthodox ideas, and our indecisiveness, she put together a ceremony that was just so perfect. With her guidance, we were able to get married in a way that was unique and personal. It felt like we have been life long friends, and her words she shared for us reflected that as well. Meeting with us virtually and via phone before hand and helping us with everything we needed to prepare before hand took away so much anxiety that comes with planning a destination wedding during a pandemic. She even had excellent ideas for us during our vacation time as well. She and her husband, Trace, made it just the most amazing day for us. To say they went above and beyond is an understatement. We are so grateful!

  • We traveled to Hawaii from South Dakota for a family vacation. We have been together for over 11 years but could not find our "perfect moment" to officially get married. Prior to our trip, my husband contacted Rev Rita regarding the possibility of getting married while in Hawaii. We talked a few times on the phone, met via zoom prior to our departure to Hawaii. Rev Rita is extremely personable, warm, and becomes an instant friend. After our arrival to the island, she kept in close contact, providing recommendations for delicious food, ice cream, drinks, places to go visit and experience- you name it! We met prior to our wedding day to go over and fine tune the details of our ceremony. She was super thoughtful, picked up on a lot of very personal details of our relationship and lives, and made our wedding absolutely perfect! She guided us in our vows, as we had written our own. We also did a hand fasting ceremony in place of a Lei exchange, pouring sand, unity candle, etc. She did an ... Read more

  • We set out to have a small ceremony at our home and decided on Reverend Rita as an officiate after reading her glowing reviews. We couldn’t have been happier with the result! She did an amazing job personalizing the ceremony, even with our last minute schedule. She has a warm and welcoming energy about her, always smiling and very professional. She thought of all the specifics and worked with us directly to make sure our brief ceremony was tailored to our individual love story and special for us. Her husband Tracey accompanied her and he was just as warm and friendly! He took great pictures throughout. They both were very flexible and accommodating and their services were very affordable. We would highly recommend Rev. Rita and her husband Tracey to anyone looking for a wedding officiate!

  • Rev Rita , Amazing is all I can say. I contacted her one evening and she was planning my brother-in-laws wedding the very next day and married them off within a few days. Her ceremony was unique to them as if she knew them for a lifetime. Very professional and def plan to use her for my own vow renewals.

    Mahalo nui loa for your kind words! I’m so glad I could officiate for your family and I look forward to doing something equally as unique for you and yours! It’s a delight to help a neighbor :)

  • RITA!! We are so very grateful for you and everything you did for us! You helped ease us when we needed it and talk us through any and every question that we brought to you! Honestly, you made everything so smooth. We both could feel the dedication whenever we spoke to you, and during the ceremony itself, you could feel how much you genuinely enjoyed being there. Again thank you so so Much! If anyone is reading this and you are like “should we hire Rita?”. Dont even hesitate, Rita will not disapoint. Honestly we dont think she could even if she wanted to

    Mahalo nui loa for your kind words! I know planning a ceremony during Covid-19 was challenging and I am so glad I could be there for you both. I meant it when I said you are two of the nicest people. Please keep in touch! Congratulations!!!

  • I will never forget this day!!! Rita was so awesome, from working behind the scenes to making this day just completely perfect. Having someone who’s accepting and comfortable with LGBT folks is awesome!!! We couldn’t have anyone perform this special day any better. Thank you for everything and we can’t wait to bring you to Boston for the big wedding!!!!!

  • We planned to get married super last minute. After some googling to find the right officiator, Rita spoke to us the most. We chatted for a few minutes and our intuition got confirmed, Rita was going to be the one! She proposed to have a skypecall the day before the ceremony to get to know us a little bit. We talked about our story, our personal values etc. She incorporated our conversation in a personally written service. Which was absolutely amazing. Every single word resonated. As an unexpected bonus, her husband captured some beautiful images and a video of the entire ceremony. We are forever grateful Trace & her husband crossed our path. Thank you so so much, you both!
