Donna did SUCH a great job officiating our wedding. She wrote a ceremony specific to us and it was everything we could've dreamed of and more. So many people came up to us during the reception to tell us how much they cried during the ceremony. I cannot recommend her enough!

Donna is extraordinary. Despite thousands of miles between us, she seemed to just get who my husband and I are, and created the perfect ceremony to reflect us. She has a beautiful way with words that captured the nuances of what we wanted to express. She went the extra mile in... Read More every way possible, and made the whole experience of preparing our ceremony almost effortless. We couldn’t recommend her more highly. She is thorough, flexible, gracious, warm, intuitive, and truly a special person. We couldn't be happier with everything and wouldn't change a thing. We're so lucky to have found Donna.

Donna did our wedding in a very short planning period and did an awesome job. Very professional, and great prep work to customize the ceremony. She was prompt and did a great job running the service.

I would highly recommend Happy Life Weddings! Donna was professional and promptly responsive to all of our questions. From the first meeting she reassured us that our ceremony would go exactly how we wanted it to, and it did!

That's always my number one goal - to have a couple's ceremony go exactly the way they want it to. So glad yours did as well. Thank you for allowing me to help make that happen.

We are so happy with the professionalism, expertise, advice, and ceremony that was performed for us. Donna is very caring in preparing for a wedding in that she wants to get to know the couple before the day of their wedding. She advised us to design the ceremony to... Read More represent our love and commitment rather than following just a dialogue of wedding procedures. We thank her very much for that suggestion as it made our vows/ceremony belong to us.

Happy Life Weddings, Donna, was wonderful. She spent time to get to know us to ensure that the ceremony was epic. If a wedding is in your plans I would recommend Donna 10 out of 10 times.

Wonderful Ceremony from Happy Life Weddings

Reviewed on 9/29/2015

My bride and I wanted a small and intimate ceremony, but we weren't sure what direction to take. We just knew we wanted a ceremony that best reflected our relationship and personalities. We found Happy Life Weddings online and liked the options and customization the service... Read More allowed. We met with Donna and she gave us the direction we needed. We chose the vows that best fitted us and added some quotes about love from our favorite writers and books. We appreciated the flexibility of Donna's service. We were nervous for the wedding, so we asked Donna read the quotes while we stuck to the vows. She read them beautifully (including our quote from Dr. Seuss on weirdness and love, which earned a laugh from the audience). She also guided us through the vows wonderfully. It turned out to be a ceremony with the sincerity, quirkiness, and love we both share. If you want a wedding ceremony that authentically reflects your relationship, contact Donna. Thanks Donna for a wonderful ceremony!

Beautiful Ceremony

Reviewed on 6/09/2015

My husband and I wanted to renew our marriage vows but had no clue how to go about doing this. After searching the internet we found Happy Life Weddings and met with the Officiant Donna Fontenot and decided she listened to our wants and needs and decided to let her help us. We... Read More could not have asked for a more Special Day. We didn't even know what vows we wanted and after reading some of the ones Donna had in her portfolio we decided to let her "write" ours based on her meeting us. The vows she wrote for us were so beautiful and touching ~ we couldn't have written them better ourselves. She put her heart and soul in every detail of the ceremony. If you are thinking of having a small, intimate wedding or a huge, full blown affair please consider meeting with Donna. I promise you ~ you won't regret the personable, sincere memories she will provide for you. Thank you Donna for making our Special Day one to remember for the rest of our lives.
