"My advice is to contact Debra and make arrangements for her to perform your wedding ceremony.
We found her most helpful, responsive, professional, gracious, flexible, and spiritual. She rearranged her schedule on short notice to accommodate our needs (last minute).
She came dressed beautifully elegant and in keeping with the theme of our wedding. When I saw her photo on the website, I thought to myself, I hope she responds to our request and is able to officiate. She did and she did!
I've recommended her to others, including my brother, who was my best man. She was gracious enough to take the time to join us for lunch, and we all got to get to know her better and enjoy her presence. The ceremonial reading and vows were beautiful and touched our Hearts, and she even accommodated us on some of the words we wanted used as well! I don't plan on getting married again, but she will always be our friend!"

“Debra did exactly what we expected from her. Very nice, and helpful. Loved that she contacted us before the wedding to get to know us, and double check all the wedding details. I would highly suggest Debra Nardi to anyone wanting a stress free, worry free wedding.”
"Absolutely loved her!!!!! Debra is so warm and welcoming, she provided us with a beautiful seashell ceremony. Debra took care of our marriage license for us, we received it in the mail shortly after our wedding. She's one of a kind, so comforting...she laughed and joked with our friends and family...took care of business!"

"After falling in love, one of the most special days that my wife and I experienced was that of our wedding. We were accompanied by a beautiful beach and sunset, along with a minister that understood the love that we had. The gentleness, the sensitivity, and the love that she poured into our ceremony were exactly what Mandy and I both longed for. What a beautiful moment, to marry my best friend and soulmate, the love of my life. And what even made it more beautiful was to share that moment with someone who connected with us on a feminine level. The sacred vows that she led us through, as we promised our lives to one another, brought us to tears. It was such a tender moment that could only be complete with a female minister. I'm fairly certain Debra had tears also.
Debra, thank you for making our day so beautiful, It was great to meet you and to share one of the most intimate moments in our relationship with you. You blessed us."
"Debra has a gift of bringing pure beauty into the world. I am familiar with the meticulous detail that goes into each wedding, an expression of divine perfection. Rest assured that any wedding that she orchestrates will be done tastefully, deeply soulful, reflective of the beauty of a lifetime commitment."

"Hi Debra, Just wanted to send you a short note and say “Thank you” for all of the hard work that you put into personalizing our wedding ceremony. You made us feel as though we were surrounded by family and friends although it was just the two of us! Thanks so much for making our dream come true!"

"Hello Debra, On Behalf of our daughter, Tricia and her new husband Danny, we would like to 'Thank you' for making their wedding day everything they dreamed it would be and more! Planning a wedding from so far away from home in an area you are totally unfamiliar with can be frustrating and 'scary' at the same time. You, Debra, made everything so smooth, carefree and easy! We felt confident in your services from afar and most importantly, there are not enough words express our appreciation for making our daughter and son-in-law’s wedding day so special! They are still talking about how 'perfect' their wedding day was and how it exceeded all of our expectations! Our beautiful Princess, (after watching Prince Charles and Diana get married at age 4, found her prince and through you, they had their 'fairy tail wedding!' Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for making this day so special. One they will cherish in their hearts forever!"

Sharon and Ray Smith
"As promised, Ray and I wanted you to know how very special you made our wedding. Everything you promised and more. Your readings of the vows made our wedding so much more than just a 'quick ceremony' I thought it would be. You took the care, time, patience and compassion to review every word with us to make our ceremony meaningful. Every time we watch our wedding video we know we were blessed to have someone like you join us in marriage. You did not make us feel rushed you made us feel our wedding was the 'only one' that day! The day of someone’s wedding is so important to them, it is nice to have a person who, even though they have done this many times, does not act as if this is just 'another wedding'. God bless you and continue on your path. This is your true calling."
Sharon and John

"Dear Debra, From the moment that you shared that you were a student of 'The Course In Miracles', both Steve and I felt a great deep sense of peace, 'Awe' and connection with the universe that was very powerful on our wedding day, and that lasted throughout our honeymoon stay in the Virgin Islands. Not only were our concerns that the wedding would be commercial or assembly line like, but all of this was dissipated with your warmth and intimate presence. It felt like you were personally a part of our ceremony and that you were able to help bring the three of us to be a part of an even higher spiritual dimension!"
