Rev. Judi Davis delivered an amazing ceremony for our wedding. I received compliments from numerous guests about how the officiant (Rev. Judi) truly captured who we (the bride and groom) were individually and how we were as a couple. She did an amazing job personalizing the... Read More wedding ceremony! Furthermore, her stage presence was wonderful and you could tell that she is great at her craft; for instance, she would pause during moments of laughter and clearly knew how to control a room. Her service was highly customized and provided a great mixture of sentimental moments and comedic relief. If you're looking for an officiant you can trust to care about your wedding ceremony as much as you do, Rev. Judi is the officiant for you. Truly wonderful.

She was so personable, prompt in response, and easy to work with throughout the entire process, taking time to get to know us as a couple so that our ceremony was a true... Read More reflection of our personalities. She had so many great suggestions on how to personalize and add meaning to our ceremony, making sure we knew we didn't have to do anything a particular way. Neither of us is very religious and it was a relief to know that she could find a way to make the ceremony just as special without some of the more traditional rituals that come with religious ceremonies. We did the personal and unique ceremony and couldn't be happier with it. We got so many compliments from our guests about how fun, personal and touching Judi made the ceremony. My father in law was particularly happy that "it wasn't boring and too long like most weddings." His quote! Judi was great during the rehearsal in taking charge and setting the expectations for the wedding party and family while still being easy going and relaxed. At the wedding her presence was welcoming and calming, and she had us giggling during the ceremony, which in our relationship is always a plus! We appreciated that she understood (and shared) our love for dogs and found the most meaningful ways to incorporate that into the ceremony. Reverend Judi is open minded and accepting of all types of couples which made me love her even more. Whether you want a traditional, religious, or funky off-beat ceremony I am confident that Judi will exceed your expectations! Thanks for making our day so perfect, Judi!

Reverend Judi Davis

Revs Judi and James Davis have a lifelong connection to the Arts. Both are professional performers dedicating their lives and their talents to entertaining and educating, working in theater, film and television. Their passion lead them to the wedding industry. In 1985, in a Vegas wedding chapel, in a cookie cutter ceremony, they wed. Nothing about their it reflected who they really were as individuals or as a couple. Though they have never regretted the bond they formed that day, they have always felt that there should be more to this sacred event. That is now their mission and their passion.
