Perfect day - An Eventective User from Phoenix, AZ

Darlene was incredible to work with for our wedding. She gave us so much time and flexibility for our ceremony planning. She provided helpful resources for writing vows, getting our official documents and other essential parts of our big day. She was willing to come out for our rehearsal which was SO HELPFUL as she helped coordinate both of our families for a perfect ceremony. Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted it to be and seamless. There were special touches that she added like my bridal “emergency kit” and a little photo from our wedding that her sweet husband took. Thank you so much!

Best Officiant Ever!!! - An Eventective User from Mesa, AZ

We recently got married and Darlene was our officiant. Expectations were far exceeded!! She was incredible, radiant, kind, encouraging, calm, and organized. I could not have asked for a better experience! Everyone was in tears at the beautiful words spoken and the tone set by Darlene. The night before the wedding, she noticed I was stressed out and brought over a Bridal Survival Kit. It had all types of odds and ends that a bride could need. During the reception, I hugged a guest too enthusiastically and the zipper on my dress popped and broke. Without the sewing kit and safety pins in the bridal kit, I would have been SOL with a broken dress. My mom was able to get me pinned back in and the night continued. I really appreciate all the time and attention Darlene gave to our ceremony and us as people taking a huge life step together. I really needed her calming presence and wonderful words. My wedding day was absolutely wonderful, and Darlene had a big hand in making it such a memorable day. If you are looking for an officiant to capture your vibe and love for each other and put it into beautiful words, Darlene is your lady :)

Darlene is truly amazing! - An Eventective User from Peoria, AZ

I cannot say enough good things about Darlene! If it wasn't for her, I'd probably still be engaged, not married. Darlene was so quick to respond to my inquiry and from our first contact, she made me feel as though we had been friends for a long time. Darlene really made my wedding come together and she was so accommodating on short notice, even allowing me to choose the same wedding date that she already had booked for another wedding (she went straight from one wedding to another!). Darlene helped my husband and I prepare our vows, plan the ceremony, and even offered to help me with my flower arrangements because I am not very crafty but wanted to personalize my floral décor. She listened to what my husband and I wanted on our wedding day, gave us suggestions on things we didn't know about and incorporated everything beautifully! Our ceremony was short, sweet and performed without a hitch. Darlene even gave me a sweet "something blue" trinket, a wedding day keepsake, and a follow up treasure! I feel as though her personalization, thoughtfulness, patience, performance, and all around beautiful nature is worth at least double the price she charges (although I am grateful for her very reasonable fee)! I highly recommend Darlene as a wedding officiant. She will not disappoint, and having someone as radiant as her in your wedding ceremony and photos is a plus!

I am very appreciative and humbled by your review. Darlene Reyher, Officiant.

My contact with Darlene was a little last minute as I contacted her only a couple of weeks before our wedding. She immediately made herself available to meet with us to discuss our desires for our ceremony and to hear our story. My initial intention was a very short, no frill ceremony with just close family and some paperwork. Darlene made some recommendations for scripts that made the ceremony much less "business". Darlene also offered to make a bouquet and her husband even took some pictures. She is accommodating, non-judgemental and truly cares about her purpose.

Management Response
Thank you for your very kind and thoughtful review! It was a joy and honor to have a part in making your wedding day special. I am so glad that I was able to exceed your expectations. I love the picture of the both of you. You can see the joy and happiness of the day. May your life together be blessed.
Accommodating and flawless - An Eventective User from Phoenix AZ

Darlene was so easy to work with and open to what we wanted as a couple. We’re very “non traditional” and not religious but none of that was a problem. She made us feel special and accommodated to our wishes. She had examples of all kinds of ceremonies and wording for pointers if we got stuck. We even did a “tequila toast” in our wedding ceremony to which she incorporated flawlessly. She even had pointers on the order we walked down the aisle in, music recommendations if we needed and overall very supportive and easy to communicate with!

Management Response
Thank you for your kindhearted review. I am so glad that your wedding was everything that you wanted it to be. I had a wonderful time working with you to plan your special day. Your wedding is one that I will fondly remember. The tequila toast was the best! Cheers to many happy years!
Beautifully crafted ceremony! - An Eventective User from Ancala country club. Scottsdale, az

Hi, Darlene was our wedding officiant last year. She took the extra time to meet with us for dinner and get to know us on a personal basis. The result was a beautiful crafted wedding ceremony. She included some nice added touches ...like laminating our vows for us to keep etc. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a personalized ceremony.

Management Response
I greatly appreciate your thoughtful review and recommendation. Your wedding was wonderful! May you both have many blessed years together.

We are so glad we found Mrs. Reyher to perform the service at our wedding. She understood our vision and found ways to accommodate those needs at a every point. From the first moment we began speaking to Darlene, she was willing to take the time to explain everything to us, in detail. She met with us and was prompt with feedback and communication. She came forward with wonderful, unique ideas that customized our wedding with the distinct and extraordinary ambiance we wanted. We appreciate her kind efforts and hard work in personalizing a perfect and beautiful ceremony. We had many compliments from our guests after the ceremony. They were quite moved with her delivery of the vows and composure throughout. Darlene was calm, relaxed and had such a welcoming approach, even when a family member came at the last minute with a beautiful, but large flower/bracelet ceremony to add to the occasion. Family raved about the moving and memorable ceremony. Without hesitation, we strongly recommend her splendid and creative gift. In today’s hustle and hectic lives, it is getting harder and harder to find someone who is willing to take the time to help with such a kind, loving, and accepting demeanor. Darlene is someone we will always remember as we reflect on my son's special day. Because of her, it was truly the best day ever imaginable!

Management Response

It was truly a joy and honor to be part of such a special day. May you, your family, and the newlyweds continue to have many beautiful memories together!
