The Perfect Officiant
Mandy was the perfect choice for officiating our wedding. She is very professional, personable and prompt. [ P3-Triple threat! Lol] We truly enjoyed working with Mandy and we love how she made our day special day unique to us. Thank you Mandy. We couldn't be happier.
A ceremony we will never, ever forget!
Mandy was so great to work with! She took the time and effort to get to know both of us individually so that she could create a compelling and emotional ceremony that we will never, ever forget. Thank you for making our special day that much better!
We couldn't have asked for more
From the first email through our big day, Mandy was extremely professional and did an outstanding job in guiding us through the creation of a wedding ceremony specifically tailored to us. She was so easy to talk to and made us feel comfortable as we discussed the plans for our day. I was pleasantly surprised the way she incorporated the story of our lives into the ceremony. We could not have asked for a more special person to officiate our wedding.
Highly recommend, she was amazing!
Mandy was the officiant at our wedding last weekend (May 7, 2015), and we couldn't have been more happy with the ceremony & the entire process that took us there. She was open and communicative the whole time, and with my husband and I being based in Seattle but the wedding happening in Virginia, she still made it a point to chat with us via Skype to ensure she knew who we were as a couple and what we felt comfortable with at the ceremony. She was a recommended officiant via Wood Grain & Lace and I'm so glad we worked with her, because she helped us figure out how to keep the ceremony feeling personalized and simple, which is exactly what we wanted. We highly recommend her services, she was amazing!
Our officiant, Mandy Canfield was amazing I honestly could not have been more pleased. Words cannot describe the wonderful energy, personality, and professionalism that this woman provided to not only our ceremony but the rehearsal dinner as well.
Mandy took the time to meet with my husband and me at our venue so she could understand why we choose it, the details we were looking for and go through a few questions to make our day more personal for us. Ceremonies can be quite boring, long, and unentertaining. But with Mandy, it was fun and interesting the whole way through. She is so hilarious and witty, and I absolutely LOVED her. Mandy put life into our ceremony, she really delivered.
Not to mention, my guests could not stop raving about her! Thank you Mandy for making our ceremony so memorable."
Richmond weddings take reviews seriously. Our vendors cannot pay to modify or remove reviews.
In 2013 one of my close friends asked me if I would officiate her wedding. At first, I thought she was kidding but came to realize that she was serious. I went through the process to become ordained and was appointed in the Commonwealth of Virginia as an officiant the same year. In October 2014 I performed my first custom wedding ceremony for my friend and realized what an impact it made to be an integral part of such a special occasion.
