  • Tara van Dernoot was a big reason why my wedding was perfect. From the first moment we started cooresponding till the ceremony was over, Tara was there for us every step of the way. She made planning the ceremony as simple as she could and worked with adding special touches that we asked for. We couldn't have asked for better.

  • Tara was a wonderful officiant. She has the ability to put any bride and groom at ease about planning the ceremony and incorporating important pieces. She is very easy to work with and goes out of her way to make the ceremony perfect. She is very professional and sincere. I myself felt touched that she went out of her way to personally introduce herself to both my parents and my future husband's parents during the rehearsal. Even better, she was 100% on board with officiating a wedding outside in 5 degree weather with snow falling in order to make our ceremony perfect! We highly recommend Tara for your upcoming wedding!

  • Tara was a dream to work with, and we don't know what we would have done without her! She made planning our ceremony a simple and fun process, and together we developed the perfect ceremony. When it came time for the big day, Tara was extremely classy and professional. We can't recommend her enough!!

  • Tara was the officiant for my wedding in Eagle-Vail, CO and I couldn't have found anyone better. We had so many guests comment on how great she was. Her calming voice and presence just brought such a great touch to the ceremony. She provided us with tons of options of readings, etc. that we could use to build our ceremony and was an enormous help pulling it all together into a truly custom ceremony that fit the setting, our personalities and our life perfectly. Tara's prices were very reasonable, she is extremely easy to work with and is there to help make your wedding day the perfect day for you.

  • My husband and I recently married on 10/20/12 in Beaver Creek CO and Tara officiated our ceremony. Choosing her was the best decision we made. We did not have the first clue as to how to put together a ceremony that would be memorable and thoughtful without being “corny”. Tara gave us so many different options to help us customize the ceremony just the way we wanted. She is a class act…so professional and accommodating. Also, she really is a sweet person, I felt an instant connection with her, she made us feel very comfortable. I never felt like she was just doing ‘her job’, it was very obvious that she wanted our wedding day to be the best day of our lives. Her husband even lent someone in our wedding party a suit (Don’t ask-long story;) talk about going the extra mile for us!!. I highly recommend doing this thing called a “ring blessing”, it was Tara’s idea and it was our favorite part of the ceremony, everyone loved it (every guest holds your rings and gives a si...

  • Tara was a sincere pleasure to work with as the officiant for our wedding. She made the time to meet with us personally and guided our ongoing dialogue to craft a ceremony that was a unique reflection of my wife and I. Tara's authenticity shines brightly. Many of our guests complimented our special ceremony including sepcial tribute to Tara and their assumption that we've known each other for years. That is certainly how Tara made us feel.

  • Tara was amazing in every way. She worked with us up to the last minute to tailor our Colorado elopement to suit our needs and preferences perfectly. Where we were unsure, Tara had suggestions to steer us in a suitable direction. Work with Tara, take some of the worry out of your special day, and rest assured that all will exceed your expectations. Thanks Tara!

  • Tara was wonderful. She was extremely warm, friendly and helpful throughout the planning process. She was flexible and matched our style of planning instead of telling us what to do. The day of the wedding she helped both of us remain clam and did a great job of making everyone feel welcome. We would highly recommended her to anyone else looking for an officiant.

  • Tara made our wedding ceremony the most amazing ceremony EVER! We appreciated all of the insight and advice she gave during the pre-wedding planning period. On the big day, she delivered the most intimate and beautiful ceremony. At the reception, all of our guests kept coming up to us saying how fabulous you were and that they loved the service. We couldn't have agreed with them any more! It was magical. Thank you! And she photographs well for pictures, too! :)

  • Tara was recommended to us by two different friends who have lived in the Vail Valley for many years. Being that Tara was out of the country, we believed in the recommendations and chose to go with her despite the fact that we would not meet her until a week before our wedding. She was WONDERFUL with long distance communication prior to our event. She is timely, professional, and thorough with her communication. She provided us with many, many options for the ceremony which made creating it easy. Our ceremony did not go as planned due to mother nature, and she did an exceptional job changing locations at the last minute. Her voice is pleasant and carries well with a crowd. She is open to doing whatever the couple would like for their ceremony. Everyone LOVED our ceremony and Tara was outstanding. I highly recommend her to anyone who is thinking about going this way. You will not be disappointed.

  • We felt very fortunate we were able to find and work with Tara for our wedding ceremony. From the first time we spoke with Tara on the phone, we knew she was right person to officiate our ceremony. She provided is with so much great reference material and readings to help us create the perfect ceremony that was personalized just for us. She was very quick in responding to our calls and emails and always had answers to our questions. On our wedding day, Tara really went above and beyond to make our ceremony so beautiful. Although we were not able to spend alot of time getting to know each other since we live out of state, she presented our ceremony with great emotion and enthusiasm as if she had known us our entire lives. We received so many heart felt compliments from friends and family on how lovely, unique and genuine the ceremony was. Our wedding was the most important day of our lives and we were so happy Tara was there to share it with us! Paul and Kate Omaha, NE

  • Tara was absolutely amazing! We had very little time to prepare/plan for our out of state elopement ceremony & I'm so glad that I found Tara online! She emailed me back promptly & was available via phone despite the fact that she herself was out of state on a trip. She did an wonderful job of putting together the vows & giving us choices without leaving the writing completely up to us. She was flexible with the time & location (which we didn't know until the day of!). It was a beautiful day for us & she was a huge part of that. She went above & beyond what I expected. She even mailed us a hard copy of the vows & followed up to make sure we got our marriage license back from the state. I highly recommend using Tara!
