Vendors Vendors Vendors! (Part Four: Officiant)

Something very important to me is that everyone feels comfortable and relaxed at our wedding. Yes it is a very special day but it's also a day of celebration of who we are as individuals and of who we are as a couple.

If you didn't already know my best friend and Maid of Honor Danica was on a show called "My Fair Wedding" where she had literally a month to prepare for her nuptials, and most of the big details she wouldn't know until the day OF her wedding! While the show did take care of most of the planning, preparation and vendors, a few things were still left to the bride and groom, like the officiant. After a somewhat stressful debacle, Danica and her groom-to-be were left officiant-less. They took to the internet and found Terry Berrett of NW Vows. Without ever even meeting the couple face to face (until the "I do's"!) Terry agreed to officiate for the couple and it went off without a hitch! Not only did Terry do a wonderful job, he made it seem like he had known the couple for ages! His easy going nature and his kind tone made for a truly special ceremony.

When I began to think about officiants, Terry was the first that came to mind. After doing a little research I saw that he seemed to only really do weddings in the Pacific Northwest now. I figured it was a long shot but it was worth a try, so I e-mailed him. He got right back to me and, to my surprise, gladly accepted my request for him to officiate our wedding! I am so genuinely excited to have Terry be a part of our special day and our lives forever!
