Caroline was fantastic from the first moment we met all the way until days after our wedding was over. All of our guests commented on how unique and beautiful our ceremony was and that it reflected us perfectly. Caroline included all the elements we wanted in our ceremony and... Read More created a beautiful custom love story that was heartfelt, romantic and light hearted all at the same time. She really understood what we wanted in a ceremony and was always easily available for any questions we had. After the ceremony, she provided us with a flash drive with our vows and love story and had the license scanned in an email that night. If you are looking for an amazing, custom ceremony that everyone will be talking about then I highly recommend Caroline!

Living in London, UK and getting married in NYC added more complexity to our wedding planning as we needed to do everything remotely. In searching for the officiant for our ceremony we had to make sure that the person was organised, fun, and attentive to our special situation.... Read More Caroline, recommended by our venue team, Manhattan Penthouse, was exactly the officiant we needed. From the first overseas call, through the "I dos" and after, Caroline made the planning and ceremony perfect for us. We also went with the package that included the love story, her personalised story of us that took the audience through how we met up until the special day. She spent time over the phone with us to really get to know us, and added a special something that really was beautiful on the day of our wedding. She had us and our guests laughing, and in tears (of joy), and quite a few people came up to us afterwards to say how great the ceremony was. It felt Caroline went out of her way to understand exactly what we wanted, and what didn't want so that our day was perfect, and she reviewed the ceremony with us a number of times so that we were prepared even though we were planning from so far away. On 18th December 2016 the Honorable Caroline Bazzini pronounced us married, and we couldn't be happier that she was the person to do it. Thank you, Caroline!
