As Eric and I started looking for a wedding officiant, we found a list of about 10. After reading the bios we narrowed it down to three we wanted to interview. Rev. Dee Richardson of Diva Matters Ministry is the first and final officiant with whom we met. After less than two minutes in her office visiting with her, we both knew Dee is who we wanted for our ceremony. We were married April 8, 2018 and our service was absolutely perfect and flawless. Rev. Dee was by far the best officiant we could have chosen. She included us in the development of our ceremony and gave us some guidance in writing our own vows. She incorporated some readings we had chosen because they had important meaning to Eric and I. We met twice with Dee, once for the introduction and the second time, to finalize the service. Our colors were red, white and black and Dee went so far as to send us pics of two possible outfits she would wear and asked for our input. If we had a question or wanted feedback on a version of our vows, of which there were several, Dee always got back to us almost immediately. Thanks to Dee, our service was personal, deeply meaningful for us, and absolutely perfect in every way.
Dee was just awesome to work with. She is warm, welcoming, and thoughtful. You can tell she does not take her role as officiant lightly, and we felt our ceremony was so special thanks to Dee. She put together a beautiful speech that reflected us, and had a calming presence! Thank you so much Dee for helping us have a wonderful and heartfelt ceremony. Highly recommend her for anyone looking for an officiant.
I contacted Dee when planning an out-of-state (for me), small beach wedding-- with just under 6 weeks notice! Dee was incredibly responsive from the get go, and spent almost an hour on the phone with me the first time we spoke. She answered late night and early morning communications willingly, and I always felt we could count on her to do everything to make our day perfect. She spend much time customizing our ceremony and helping us with decisions regarding our vows. The day went off without a hitch. My only regret is that we didn't work on some sound equipment, as several family members stated they couldn't hear our ceremony. This was something I hadn't thought to ask for unfortunately. The ceremony was beautiful, and Dee did a great job. Hopefully my husband and I won't be needing her services personally in the future, but I would 100% recommend her to anyone (and everyone!
I have worked with Rev Dee for many years now - she is always so calm and centered. She treats her clients in a very professional manner and has the utmost respect for all people.
Rev. Dee was wonderful! We talked through exactly what we wanted out of our ceremony with her and she communicated well with us ahead of time and met with us to make sure we were happy with the plan. She came to the rehearsal and was super helpful, and we felt nothing but love and support on our wedding day. She was a true professional and when small issues arose she was able to improvise and make everything run smoothly. We couldn't be happier. Thanks Dee!
