Bride Magic

It never ceases to amaze me how brides always get it right!

They have the right style of dress, the perfect hair style, the accessories are exquisite and the result is absolutely stunning. It’s so much fun to see the transformation from the rehearsal where brides are usually quite casual to the “bride magic” of the wedding day.

I always try and see the bride before she comes down the aisle so they don’t take MY breath away before we start the ceremony!!

 The most stunning dresses reflect the simplicity and timelessness of pure white. So many shades of gorgeous white. Silhouettes range from sleek and under stated to fuller silhouette that were simply gorgeous. The combinations of “stunning” are endless. I always, always look forward to  “bride magic.”

On the Lighter Side

Ceremonies on the lighter side

In meeting some of my couples, I know right from the outset – they are all about the fun!

There are so many ways to add some fun and laughter to a ceremony.  Themes, humorous vows or ….. green sunglasses 🙂

If you are a fun loving couple, your family and friends know it!   They are delighted to be a part of a ceremony that really feels like the two of you.

Let’s plan a ceremony that is a  celebrates you as a couple!  

Bring on the kids!

I love kids in weddings! Little boys dressed up in grown up suits and little girls in dresses that are so cute. 

One little guy was dressed in a top hat – he fell asleep just before his big debut down the aisle so Dad carried him down.  Wedding guests love these “blips” in the program!

My motto is – and you will hear me say it at rehearsal – guests love it when kids perform their roles perfectly – but they love it more when they don’t!  So you can never go wrong with little people in your wedding party.

One lovely bride had her two little girls walking down the aisle with her, when the littlest one decided it was all too much and insisted that Mom pick her up. I performed that ceremony for three people – Mom, Dad and the one little angel that would not be set down! There was something incredibly sweet about the whole thing. Tiny little guys in tiny little suits being enticed down the aisle by a favorite teddy bear in the groom’s hand or little girls who are suppose to delicately toss petals but instead throw them in clumps beside their feet – wedding guests love it all! I love it all!

Tammy Was a Great Listener

Tammy was Awesome. She did an excellent job of listening to our requests and customizing a ceremony that fit both of our personalities.

Truely Talented At What She Does

It’s difficult for us to find the right words to describe just how grateful we are to have had you as part of our special day. Thank you so much for your patience, understanding, and sheer enthusiasm as our wedding officiant. You helped make our wedding ceremony the most fitting and perfect representation of us as a couple – it was exactly what we had pictured in our minds, even though we had no idea what we wanted at first. You are truly talented at what you do, and we are so happy we found you to kickstart our new adventure together. Thank you again!

Helped Us Coordinate Our Ceremony

Tammy was spectacular! She helped us coordinate our ceremony so that it was organized but still personal. She was always responsive to my emails, and even provided some advice beyond the officiant capacity that helped make our wedding day a success!

Tammy Banting is the best!

We had a surprise wedding, so having an officiant that was really flexible and able to roll with punches gave us one less thing to worry about. We wanted a quick ceremony and Tammy got the job done with a very heartwarming ceremony; all of our guests were in tears! (For real, you should see all the crybaby eyes in our wedding photos!) The planning process was super easy. Tammy provided us with  ceremony choices and ideas to make it even more personal and unique. I loved that we had the option of adding some spiritual components as well. Our guests loved Tammy and even the event planner at our venue had wonderful things to say about her. You can’t help but love Tammy!
