When working with couples, our goal is to give some peace of mind to them. Their day should be nothing but fun and wonderful memories. That being said, below you will find some kind words from couples we have had the pleasure to work for–and more importantly–create memories and blessings of our own with.
“The ceremony was particularly important to us, even though neither of us are particularly religious. We wanted a moment and an officiant that would share our promises with God and our loved ones. What we got was even more! Deb Porter is an amazing person, from how she relates to people to the great work she does. She transforms words into a moment that you will remember forever. She worked closely with us on the wording of our vows and was completely open to all of our wants and suggestions. I wanted a particular Dr. Seuss quote that I wasn’t sure would flow into a ceremony very well. She got it to sound beautiful. She guides your bridal party into how they walk and stand during the ceremony to make sure everyone looks and feels their best.
She does do one thing that sets her apart from the others. She truly cares about you and your partner. Many times she offered open support when we were nervous and needed that hand to hold and comforting words along the way. She truly wants you and your partner to have a great day. From so many people I heard how beautiful our ceremony was and how great she did, using words to fill the room with love. Hands down best you can do, I am sad to say I will only get to spend that short time with her, but she made it memorable!”
Nina and Matt
“Absolutely wonderful!!! Our wedding was a last minute out of state military wedding and that can be difficult. She worked with us to find the perfect place for our ceremony, was very well organized, and made our night one we will always remember as “perfect”!”
Kay and Nick
“Our pastor, Deb Porter was wonderful!!! She was nice, friendly and extremely helpful when trying to decide what kind of ceremony we wanted. She made herself available to answer any questions I had and gave me advice/samples of ceremonies she thought I would like. I would definitely recommend Deb for your wedding. She did a great job and also created a decorative marriage certificate for us vs. the plain one from the state!”
Mary and Rupert
“DJ, You are our hero…. Thank you for making this day possible. On short notice, with another earlier wedding, and dealing with our HUGE group of crazy people, you ROCK! Thank you.”
Kim and Tony
“Deb is SO KIND! She met with us one night and talked to us like we were best friends. She didn’t judge us or force us to do anything we didn’t want and she wasn’t overbearing or demanding money. We weren’t forced into marital counseling but she offered it. She asked questions about every detail and was willing to include everything we wanted. Her service was personal, endearing and fun- everything my husband and I are about. It was a short, sweet ceremony (which was the best part because we were outside and did not want to keep everyone out there for long) and everyone loved it. She answered any questions we had and ran an extremely efficient rehearsal dinner (I’ve been to some that were unorganized and nothing went right). We absolutely loved her!” The New Mr. and Mrs.!

Tamika & Rey
“Rev. Deb “DJ” Porter was wonderful, she truly personalized our ceremony to what we wanted. She took our suggestions and created a ceremony that was “us” and made us feel like family while we were working with her. I highly recommend Rev. Porter, you will know she is the one for you and your wedding day the minute you meet her!”

Patricia and Larry
“We are overjoyed you were the special person to officiate our wedding ceremony. We received many compliments as to how deep and meaningful, yet unique, our ceremony was. The “Family Ceremony” was so special for all of us. And your robe was magnificent! There really are no words to adequately describe our gratitude to you for all that you did to make our wedding a dream come true for us both.”
