Christobel was the officiant at our wedding ceremony last week (December 28, 2017), and she did a phenomenal job! I knew from the moment we met her, at her adorable home with her handsome Rottweiler Charleston, that she was a perfect match for us. Her eloquent accent and... Read More intonation, along with her vibrant demeanor, created such a beautiful ceremony that will never be forgotten. Our guests continued to rave about her well into the evening, and she certainly deserves it. My husband and I are very grateful to have such a fond memory of our ceremony, and we owe it all to her. I'm confident that Christobel can provide a special and unique day to any bride, and I would recommend her services to anyone! Thank you so much, Christobel! <3

During our wedding, Christobel did a phenomenal job and moved many of my family to tears with her descriptions of our love. She also kept composure when my wife's veil flew into her face and did not miss a beat. We could not have been more thankful to have had Christobel with us on that day and anyone who can book her should. I promise it will be the best booking you will make!

I'm copying this review from my WeddingWire account, because I know that a lot of people use TheKnot and want everyone to know how awesome Christobel is!! We were so fortunate to have picked Christobel out of what seemed like a sea of officiants! She is definitely one of a kind... Read More and you will not regret picking her for your special day. From all of the weddings I've been to, you're lucky if you get an officiant who doesn't drag on with bible verses and offers the wedding attendants an occasional laugh. With Christobel, you don't need jokes to make the service bearable, it is short and filled with the most beautiful words you will ever hear. Christobel has definitely done her research, bringing together heart-warming and passionate words from all over the world and from every era. She gives you plenty of service options to pick from, and I promise picking your favorites will be the hardest part about working with her!! Make sure to take the time to meet her before the ceremony, I promise it is worth it and her gigantic rottweiler Charleston is absolutely precious. She makes you feel so special and treats your wedding vows as what they are-- the most important words you will ever say and hear. She is also very flexible! We had pouring rain start 30 minutes before the ceremony, and while we were slightly off schedule, she was totally open to doing the ceremony in the wet grass last minute when the clouds parted, and she would have done it inside as well if that's what we had decided on. While everyone loved the ceremony and said that it was "absolutely beautiful," most of the words I heard about her from friends and family were, and I quote verbatim, "I LOVE her!" She was an excellent presence and you will see what I mean the second you speak on the phone with her! That all being said, I hope we will remain in touch with her throughout our years, because she really is just a wonderful person and exactly who I feel we deserved to help us claim our love as ever-lasting. We adore her!

Words cannot truly express the emotions and joy I’m still feeling as the words Christobel so eloquently wrote came to life in Chelsey and Christopher’s “Celebration of Love” ceremony. The looks of pure love that Chelsey and Christopher displayed as they recited their vows said... Read More it all and then some! I can’t thank Christobel enough for including their beautiful daughter, Emerson in the ceremony by having Chelsey’s brother “Uncle Connor” escort Emerson to present her Momma and Dada their wedding rings. Such a touching moment as Chelsey and Christopher and Emerson joined together as a completed circle of love. I had such a huge smile on my face during the whole ceremony that my cheeks were sore the next day! My husband and I are so happy that we met Christobel at Milltown Historic District’s vendor show last fall. I knew then that she was what we were looking for in an Officiant to make our daughter and Christopher’s wedding day one that they will cherish forever. From day one, Christobel was so passionate and caring about listening to what Chelsey and Christopher envisioned for their vows, and she truly expressed the love they have for each other. The ceremony was “Epic” and Chelsey and Christopher described the whole event as a fairytale that came to life!
