Cherise was awesome to work with. She was on time and very welcoming and made us all feel comfortable. Cherise literally picked up the pieces as I had another officiate cancel on my husband and I at the last minute. Cherise was on time and very flexible and patient with us. I’m so blessed to have Cherise officiate my beautiful wedding.☺️

If you need an officiant look no further!!! I could not have imagined my wedding ceremony to be any better! My husband and I planned a very last minute elopement to Mount Rainier with no clue on where we wanted to exchange vows. She gave us recommendations, had outstanding communication and was very flexible & understanding with us. There was something about our first conversation that made me trust her fully and herise felt more like a friend! I gave her full freedom to write our ceremony, it was above and beyond our expectations. There wasn’t a single guest at our wedding that didn’t shed a tear. My family doesn’t stop talking about how perfect our ceremony was (even my never cries, man of men father in law cried!!) She was exactly what our ceremony needed & we are so grateful that she was a special part of it. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for the memories we will carry with us for a lifetime! No words can express our gratitude 10/10 service!

Best wedding officiant
Cherise was so accommodating and wonderful. She was so kind and easy to communicate with. She really made our day special especially during covid. I would recommend her to anyone. She became like family during our small intimate and casual wedding. I appreciate her so much!

Cherise was perfect! We visited Washington for our elopement and she made the process super easy. The ceremony is just what we envisioned. She most certainly captured how personality in her words. I am so happy we found her to be apart of our special day!

Ashley & Collin

We did a quickie elopement and I wasn’t expecting much, but Cherise said the sweetest words and gave us a cute card and gift! She was very flexible with us and straight forward about everything. When the time is right we will definitely be welcoming her to officiate for us again.

Darius & Gabrielle

Cherise was amazing. She was extremely nice and understanding, had some great puns and greys anatomy references. She was funny and very positive, she had such great energy. If you’re looking for someone to marry you, i recommend Cherise. When we do a bigger wedding after covid, we would want her to marry us again.

Faith & Elizabeth

This was such a seamless and pleasurable experience. We are so happy we went with Cherise. She came on time, communicated perfectly, and made the whole process easy. We didn’t have a huge ceremony or anything, and she did exactly what we needed.

Vanessa & Mark

Cherise was absolutely wonderful. I loved how personal and sweet her words were. We didn't really know what to expect, so I thought we'd just have a generic cermony, but everything she said was so specific to who we are as a couple. It was perfect and added to a perfect day.

We decided to go with the Quickie service for our elopement! Cherise was very responsive, flexible, and personable. We were just expecting her to literally just say "do you take ____" but she surprised us with a beautiful vow that brought both of us to tears. I can't imagine having anyone other than Cherise officiate our elopement. She made everyone feel very comfortable, it was like having a friend officiate. We highly recommend hiring Cherise to officiate your wedding!

Cherise was amazing! I was blown away at how beautiful our ceremony was because of her words and her presence. With very little back and forth she came up with something that felt extremely personal, like we’d known her for years. Searching for an officiant online when you don’t know someone personally is very daunting but I got a great feeling from her, went with that, and we were so so happy with our ceremony. She helped coordinate the documents and signatures with ease. On the pandemic front as a very small detail bonus, the ppe she wore during the ceremony was clear and almost invisible; it was nice to be able to see her mouth as she spoke during the ceremony. I can’t wait to get our photos back, our photo with her will be a cherished memory! Thank you Cherise! I think you have found your calling and I hope you continue to bring joy to other couples like you did for us. Happy New Year!

From the start Cherise set me at ease with her quick responsiveness. Even though our day could have easily been canceled due to inclement weather, Cherise and her positive attitude made our wedding seem as if there were no changes at all. I would highly recommend Cherise to anyone even thinking about getting married, she is absolutely amazing!!!!

Great Officiant!
Cherise is great! She was flexible when our date shifted and she provided helpful examples of vows and ring exchanges for us to choose from (or create our own). The day of the ceremony she was on time (unlike me) and so helpful. Her remarks during the ceremony were really special. We highly recommend!

Sarah & James

Cherise was so wonderful! She was on time and even in a snow storm was there. She gave my wife and I exactly what we wanted . We hope to have a ceremony in the spring time and hope she will do it again. WONDERFUL!!! Thank you so much!!!

Joe & Patty

Cherise was amazing! Like so many others, my partner and I had to reimagine our wedding ceremony due to Covid 19 restrictions. Cherise not only understood exactly what we wanted but was super flexible and was able to accommodate our preferences last minute (lead up time was less than 2 weeks). The actual ceremony was at a park by my house and was absolutely perfect. I can’t recommend Cherise enough.

Amazing officiant!
Cherise was an absolutely amazing officiant for our elopement in Olympic National Park. She incorporated everything we said we wanted in a ceremony, was fun to work with, and accommodating. It’s a shame I’ll only get married once, or I would 100% hire her again!

Amanda & Michael

Elopement officiant
Cherise was absolutely amazing. She was easy to talk to and get to know virtually. She made our ceremony unique by the special sweet words she said. Both me and my husband were so happy that she married us. And she gave us a very nice gift that brought tears to my eyes: she wrote down her notes for the ceremony and gave them to us afterwards. I would highly recommend her.

Sarah & Mike

Incredible!!!
I’m so happy Cherise officiated our elopement. She was so easy to communicate with from beginning to end, she was so thoughtful and kind and made our personalized ceremony fit us perfectly. ❤️She was also willing to travel for our elopement which we were so grateful for! My husband and I couldn’t be happier! If you’re looking for someone to officiate your wedding/elopement no matter how big or small I highly recommend Cherise ❤️

Diana & Latrell

Cherise is phenomenal!! She was able to share our love story in such a beautiful way. We could not have chosen anyone better to officiate our secret elopement. She was the sweetest and wonderful to work with! Highly recommend.

Sandra & Laurit

Cherise is incredible! She is so thoughtful and the energy and effort she put in to making our personalized ceremony was amazing. She even worked in a quote that my husband loves and had in his vows and made last minute adjustments within 24 hours of the ceremony! Throughout the whole process she was professional, friendly, and a joy to work with - always made us smile and feel like she had everything under control :) You are in good hands with Cherise! We highly recommend her!

Sam & Quinn

I want to say thank you to, Cherise! My husband and I got married last weekend and boy was the ceremony magical. From the time we booked with Cherise to leading to the wedding, communication was on point. Cherise took our questionnaire and made our ceremony memorable. Thank you to the best officiant out there. PS. we have the same first name so she must be great!

Charese & Jason

Cherise was absolutely perfect for our ceremony vision. She is so well spoken, prompt, and organized. Her ceremony script was beautiful and thoughtful with personalized touches. We felt so comfortable around her and would recommend her foe anyone!

Carmen & Charles

The moment we had our initial consultation with Cherise we knew she was the one we wanted to have officiate our elopement ceremony. She is so sweet, caring, professional and super responsive. She made us feel at ease throughout the whole process. Also, she was super willing to drive to our ceremony out in Olympic National Park.
During the ceremony, I could not get over how beautiful Cherise’s words were. She truly took the time to write meaningful vows that were the perfect match for our relationship. Thank you for making our day so special! We will remember your beautiful words for a lifetime.

Ashley & Stephen

Cherise was an incredible officiant! We searched for a long time to find someone that we felt a connection with. After a brief phone call to get to know each other, we knew that she would be the perfect person to officiate our wedding. She was kind, easy to talk to, friendly, and really took the time to get to know us and ask about our life and relationship so that she could create a personalized ceremony. We knew that we wanted to add in some sort of unity ceremony, but didn't know exactly what. Cherise suggested handfasting and ring warming to help include our family that was attending. These two simple additions really made our ceremony feel special and personal. Our ceremony also took place near Cannon Beach, OR and Cherise had no problem traveling to us despite being outside of her usual locations. She was also super flexible and patient with us when we were running late getting to the ceremony site from our Airbnb. She submitted our marriage license paperwork right away- our offical marriage license was processed and waiting for us before we even got home to North Carolina! I really loved working with Cherise, and I'm so glad that we were able to use her as our officiant. She really helped make the most special day of our lives even more personal and meaningful.

Olivia & Blake

Cherise is absolutely amazing! she made my wedding day perfect and beautiful. From the guidance prior to the wedding to detailed steps of what's to come. She incorporated our love story and added in small changes that the groom and groomsmen requested. the ceremony was beautiful and it was happy and funny at the same time. she is the best and definately will recommend her to anyone if anyone shall need one! thank you for making me feel comfortable and giving me the vision that I wanted!

Annita & Abdul

Cherise is amazing!! If you’re in the market for a wedding officiant, look no further. We could tell on the initial consult call that Cherise was who we wanted to go with, she was so friendly and personable and asked all the right questions to guide us towards having a wonderful ceremony. She sent us a couples questionnaire to fill out and wrote our ceremony from there, and did such a good job capturing us as a couple that our parents thought that my husband and I had written the ceremony ourselves! She was also flexible and accommodating when our ceremony location changed from what we talked about initially. We can’t thank you enough, Cherise!

Chloe & Tyler

Cherise is an absolute gem and I am so grateful my now husband and I worked with her! Cherise was recommended by our wedding coordinator, and truly blew us away. Cherise is incredibly talented and made our ceremony so sweet and thoughtful, and even gifted us with momentos from the day. I loved her energy and how she wove pieces from our story, making it feel like she knew us for ages. Cherise is highly recommended.

Ben & Irma

At first both my husband and I were pretty sure we wanted to ask a family member or friend to officiate our wedding, but as we went through the list we really couldn’t pinpoint the right person for the role. We met with a few other officiants before finding Cherise and were somewhat discouraged on what to do. But as soon as we met Cherise we both immediately vibed with her and knew we wanted her to be a part of our big day. Our first call with her ended with both us saying, "wow, she seems cool!" She was great throughout the whole planning process and made some really fun suggestions for our ceremony such as including a wine unity ceremony that we had never seen but our guests completely loved it. She was open to our feedback, showed up early, and did a great job with our ceremony and all of the paperwork. She completely personalized the ceremony for us so that it was totally like it was a friend like we wanted all along and not someone we hired. We loved having Cherise be our officiant and will recommend her to any future couples tying the knot!
