  • Rev Patti. Ruhala was a huge part of our day! We could not have done this without her. Planning a wedding during the pandemic was so stressful, but she honestly took that stress away from us. She was always so responsive and open to what we imagined for our big day. She was patient, kind, and kept our wedding party in order. 5/5 and we would recommend her to anyone getting married! Thank you Rev. Patti for being apart of our special day and making it perfect.

  • Patti did an amazing job at writing up our wedding ceremony. She listened to our love story and took it and interwove it with the way she ministered our wedding. There was not a dry eye in the house at the way she included my children in the ceremony. Also she is a positive light and a big comfort on the day of the ceremony when nerves were running high.

    Amy, the best part of being a minister is the love story of each couple. All unique and yours. Incorporating it into the ceremony can be fun and romantic. Adding the childen is a lifetime memory for them too. Thank you for your review and best wishes.

    Thank you Kailyn. The wedding ceremony was a bit chilly, but we loved your leopard print blanket afterwards to keep you warm! Being there for you from start to finish is what I do to help ease your stress. Best wishes to you, Ricky and Addie.

  • From rehearsing under cell phone flash lights to last minute changes Rev. Patti was amazing! Her words are so well written it makes the ceremony absolutely beautiful! She guides you through your whole ceremony and just makes you so at ease that you are able to enjoy the day! Highly recommended

    Holly and Justin, I do have to say that rehearsing with the cell phone flashlights was a first, but it made it fun and helped ease the pre-wedding tensions. Everyone was so nice, the kids did a great job with the sand and as flower girl/ringbearer. Eric was very proud to carry the rings. I wish you and your family all the best!

  • As many covid brides know this year did not go how we expected! I had to downsize my wedding and a few weeks before the wedding my pastor suddenly passed. I was left frantically looking for an officiant. When I reached out to Reverend Patti she was so quick to respond!! I feel so blessed that I found someone so patient and knowledgeable. Reverend Patti talked us through the whole ceremony and made everything so easy for us, on what can be a bit of a stressful day. Thank you Reverend Patti!!!(:

  • Rev Patti was great! We can't say enough wonderful things about her. She made our day so smooth and made sure that all of our fears and questions were answered and taken care of. We didn't have to worry about anything! She was professional, on-time, and made sure our day went exactly how we envisioned it. We would recommend her to any couples seeking an officiant!

  • Patti did a wonderful job throughout our wedding process and at the ceremony. She was always responsive, checked in with myself and my mom on how things were going, and made the rehearsal and day of the ceremony go very smoothly yet still had fun and joked with us and my bridal party. It is very important to have a great officiant- I have attended some weddings and wondered if the officiant was more nervous than the couple! But she knows what she's doing! Our ceremony felt intimate and personal yet still light and happy. I would definitely recommend Patti to anyone for their big day!

    responded with the following comments.

    Melanie, thank you so much for the kind words. Wedding days can get so stressful and I really try to make sure you get to be "bride" and enjoy your day and let me take care of rehearsal and ceremony. I wish you both every happiness!

  • Planning a wedding during a pandemic is well, awful. All of the not knowing what will happen and trying to keep hope alive that you will still have your special day is difficult. Having Rev. Patti in our corner the entire time certainly helped me keep my hope alive. She was kind and positive and always very responsive! Our day came, and it was HOT and HUMID and rained! But even with all of that she kept a smile on her face as well as ours and made everything so special! I cannot recommend her enough to anyone! She is sweet and funny and just an overall joy to work with! Thank you again for making our day perfect. :)

    April, thank you so much. I had a great time being there for you and Robert! It's about starting the journey together, a little weather makes it fun.
