Another One Ties The Knot
PNW WEDDING OFFICIANT
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.
- Jonnae & Phillip
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!
- Lorena & Norman
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
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!
- Natalie & Mitchell
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!
- Olivia & Stefan
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!!!!
- Rosalynn & John
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.
- Amy & G.
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
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
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 for 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!
- Bryanna & Marcel
Cherise was incredible to work with from the beginning. My husband and I decided not write our own vows but she helped pick out unique ones for us. She was friendly, showed up on time, and easy to work with. She made our ceremony very special. Thank you so much
- Kayla & Luke
From start to finish, they were FAR beyond expectations. They have such an amazing presence and have such an amazing warmth to them that is so awesome to have. The way they wrote everything out and tied everything together was absolutely incredible. Everything was absolutely perfect and we couldn't be happier with everything. We were incredibly lucky to have them there and they really made our special day that much more special. Could not have had a better experience without them!
- Barry & Gemma
Cherise was absolutely amazing, from the beginning of our initial phone I knew I would love her! During the whole.process I told her my vision, incorporated our love story and it was everything. She went over some ideas with how I can do my own vows while my hubby didn't want to. She gave me detailed steps of what was to come and assured it will be an amazing ceremony. It was very beautiful and she was totally amazing. Definately would recommend her to anyone who is looking for an officiant :)
- Annita & Abdul
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
Another One Ties The Knot is a great business to work with. Cherise made the process simple and she was a pleasure to work with. We had a small ceremony that felt custom and was perfect for our wishes. 10/10 would recommend!
- Taylor & Sarah
Cherise is amazing! Choosing an officiant felt so nerve-wracking to me, the person up there really sets the tone of the most important part of the entire wedding day. We feel SO lucky to have found her, she really made planning the ceremony a breeze. I loved that she really took the time to know us and our story before the day. She even happily accommodated our request to have her come back and sign our wedding license the next day at a brunch because we preferred that date. We would definitely recommend her to friends and family!
- Makayla & Brian
There are no words to describe how impressed we were with Cherise! I wanted to choose all 5 options above because she was nothing less than amazing in all aspects. She went above and beyond, staying in touch, answering our many questions, even when our venue had to change due to unforeseen circumstances she stepped right in and offered help and guidance. The way she personalized our ceremony was nothing short of astounding! Thank you Cherise for making our day so much more special.
- Sandy & Scott
My husband and I were afraid of having a stranger marry us (we were worried it would be awkward and informal) but Cherise made it so special by adding a Instagram tag into our ceremony that I had posted a year ago about my husband. It was the perfect touch to make us feel united even more at the alter. I had also asked her to read a Native American blessing over us to represent my family heritage and it sounded beautiful! She really makes your ceremony unique for you!
- Michelle & Ben
Cherise is a delight to work with, from the first time you speak with her to the biggest moment of your life. Not only is she kind, funny, and excellent at what she does, but is also extremely patient and helpful. We did not exactly make her job easy but she delivered a beautiful ceremony that had my dad in tears the whole time, and us beaming. Cherise took care to understand a few Jewish traditions, learned the tone of the ceremony we envisioned, and was a complete professional; I'd absolutely recommend her.
- Marla & Pavel
Cherise was absolutely fantastic! She absolutely did Her homework when getting to know us and helping make our day special. Her words were loving, kind, and as requested -- She respected our wants, didn't assume our needs, and worked with us every step of the way. Additionally, she was an absolute blast! We wish we could have had more time with Her on our day.
- James & Jessica
Cherise gave us a literally perfect ceremony. Her words were gorgeous and her calm and positive demeanor gave the groom and I confidence throughout the ceremony. She was easy to communicate with and helped us to include a special tree planting ceremony. I would without a doubt pick Cherise again to be our officiant!!
- Beverly & Tim
Cherise did an incredible job with our private wedding ceremony. She arrived early and even clued us into some inclement weather at our chosen ceremony location, which allowed us to pivot to a new and more enjoyable site. Even though we only got to know Cherise a few weeks before our wedding, she made us both incredibly comfortable and it felt like she had known us for months or years. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect and matched both of our personalities. We would highly recommend Cherise for your wedding ceremony!
- Brie & Bobby
Cherise is the best! Our company worked with Cherise this weekend and she did such a great job for our client. As Certified Wedding and Event Planners, we are always on the lookout for a punctual, friendly, open minded, and fun Officiant- and here she is! She showed up and ran the show with nothing more than a couple emails and phone calls with the bride to go off of. It was so smooth and well done, we will recommend her over and over again. Thanks Cherise, you rock!
- Audrey (Wedding Planner)
My husband and I are so grateful for Cherise. Working with her was such a dream -- so fun and easy! From our initial phone call, to email communication and helpful ceremony suggestions, all the way to the day-of, Cherise thoughtfully guided us through the process and helped us determine what we wanted our ceremony to look like. Choosing Cherise to perform our ceremony was truly one of the best decisions we made. For not having met each other in real life until the day-of the wedding, Cherise created an incredibly beautiful ceremony and described my husband and I's relationship perfectly and truly captured the essence of us. We highly recommend working with Cherise to officiate your wedding -- 100%!! Thank you for creating a perfect ceremony, Cherise! -
- Hannah & Alex
Cherise is WONDERFUL. From the get go she was so sweet and helpful. Before we booked her as our officiant we chatted on the phone, and I could tell right away from her personality that she would do an amazing job. She sent us some questionnaires to help get to know us and figure out what we would want to include in our ceremony. She also helped us know where to get our marriage license and what to expect with that process.
The day of our elopement we were running a bit behind schedule, but Cherise was super patient and understanding. The ceremony she put together was absolutely PERFECT, there was not a single word I would change. It included sweet tidbits about our relationship (and our cats), written sooo eloquently! I'm a wedding photographer so I attend a lot of ceremonies, but I have never heard a ceremony so well done as the one Cherise wrote for us. It was so beautiful and personal, it was so special to us. After our wedding day was over, my husband and I both said our ceremony was our favorite part of the day.
I can’t recommend her enough- book her, you will not be disappointed!
- Molly & Ryan
We can’t say enough amazing things about our experience with Cherise. We were a tough couple to work with being that we had to make many unforeseen changes to our wedding day, literally up until the last minute. Not only was Cherise flexible and kind throughout the process.. she never showed any stress or frustration by any of the changes. She also went above and beyond for us in recommending other avenues when ours kept falling through. She has the most calming presence about her which we noticed right from our initial phone call. She wrote the most beautiful ceremony for us. It was thoughtful, funny, genuine, emotional and most importantly, true to us as a couple. Our families from out of town RAVED about her afterwords. She even made my dad tear up, which is a big deal. Cherise made our ceremony so special. Truly the best officiant ever! Thank you, Cherise!!
- Michelle & Dylan
Cherise is amazing! She kept in communication with us from the time we booked and post-wedding with helpful reminders and tips, which was very helpful. The ceremony was perfect and she customized her pieces to include stories we had shared and our fur babies! She also told us about a really fun way to seal our ceremony with a shot, which our guests and wedding party loved. We received so many compliments after the wedding as well on the ceremony with folks specifically asking about Cherise! 10/10 would recommend!
- Jayda & Christian
Cherise was the perfect officiant for our wedding. She was extremely responsive throughout the process leading up to the event, and she takes time to learn about the couple and incorporate tons of personalization into the ceremony, including understanding things that you don’t want or like in weddings and making sure to stay away from those topics or language. Cherise was very attentive to how I wanted the tone and structure of the ceremony to go and executed it perfectly. The script she prepared was highly personalized, lighthearted and positive- and she left a beautifully printed copy of the ceremony script with us after, which was such a sweet touch. After the wedding, completing and signing the marriage license was seamless. I would 100% recommend Cherise / Another One Ties the Knot!
- Jaylynn & Jarrett
We absolutely adore Cherise!! the two of us are wedding photographers as well so we heard amazing things about her before officially meeting. we watched her work at a wedding we shot for and were just blown away by her professionalism, yet she was so comfortable and friendly! after meeting over the phone, we knew she would be a perfect fit for our intimate elopement since we always told ourselves we wanted vendors that felt like friends and family — and she totally did :) Cherise was there every step of the way offering advice + tips and made us feel like we made the right choice over and over. we told her “it would have been awkward with anyone else” and it still stands haha. my husband and i wrote our own vows but her personal touches she put in for us really made us feel like she got to know our relationship thoroughly!
- Sydney & Evan
Cherise was AMAZING. she made the Wedding day process very easy and stress free. we loved her vibe and energy. Ceremony lasted around 20mins which was perfect for us. She is very professional and will def recommend.
- Yessenia & James
My husband and I are so grateful that we worked with Cherise for our wedding ceremony! She was very helpful in creating an individualized wedding ceremony, talking through options for the ceremony, and reviewing each of our personal vows to ensure they’d mesh well. On the day of our wedding, she provided such a calm, positive energy, and created such a personal and beautiful ceremony for us. We have received so many comments about how people assumed she was our friend and have heard over and over that people loved the sentiment in our ceremony. We loved working with Cherise, and recommend her without hesitation!
