Darlene Ellis was a wonderful officiant for our wedding. She was very kind and spent some time getting to know us. She really put my husband and I at ease before the wedding ceremony and made the ceremony very personal. We had many of our guests comment on what a great job she did! We would highly recommend her!

Darlene was wonderful! She set up an initial meeting with us close to our home. She answered all of our questions and let us know about herself and her background. We were immediately taken with her.
She helped us through the process of picking the perfect ceremony. My husband and I wanted a traditional ceremony but are not religious. She offered us several alternatives to a prayer and we found the perfect one! She sent us the ceremony in emails and was completely flexible when we wanted to take out a few lines and add in a few extra. She was prompt in her responses to my emails and even took initiative when I fell behind in my responses as the wedding drew closer and I was overwhelmed.
She added a personal touch too...including our daughter in the ceremony and a fun story about how we met. She seemed truly happy to be a part of our special day rather than there just to be our officiant. My husband gave her a huge hug after the ceremony and can't stop talking about how sweet she was. She helped to make our day perfect. We loved her and would recommend her to everyone!

Darlene was the perfect Officiant for our wedding. She has married thousands of couples over the years in her experience. She brings a unique and individualized approach that was welcomed and enjoyed by everyone. She was incredible easy to work with and we couldn't have had a more perfect start to our marriage!
Thank you Darlene!!!

Darlene was quick to send us a reply when we began searching for some wedding officiants to perform our wedding ceremony. She introduced herself via email, and directed us to take a look at her website. We liked what we saw on her website so we contacted her again and then we spoke with her by phone. She wanted to get to know us a little better and hear our story before she wrote out the words she would read at our ceremony. She sent them to us for editing/approval and we offered our additional poem to add (at her suggestion) and the wording could not have been more perfect. Darlene was kind and warm in her delivery of our ceremony. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a wonderful, thoughtful wedding officiant.

Reverend Darlene did a beautiful service for our wedding in the Northern Tahoe area. From the beginning stages of opening up communication and calling us to find out more about the couple my husband and I are, to offering different suggestions of blessings and/ or prayers that best suit us. She really put the personal touch on our very special day.
Reverend Darlene as a person just naturally fits in with your family and friends making it feel like you have known her for years. It was a beautiful service and we would highly recommend her to anyone. You can be rest assured that you need to look no further, you have found the right person to marry you :) Thank you again Darlene, wishing you all the best. Brian and Lisa Lake
