Absolutely amazing experience

Wow! Where do I even begin. My husband Zayne and I were recently married this April in Tuscany. We had a small wedding with a little more than 20 guests. It was quite a feat planning a wedding abroad when you don’t know anyone! I searched and searched for vendors and luckily, found Carina on Wedding Wire to officiate our ceremony. She is the absolute best!! She worked with Zayne and me to ensure our wedding ceremony was just perfect. We had so many guests after the ceremony saying, “Wow! That really was the most sincere and special ceremony we’ve ever witnessed.” This means so much to us! We wanted our ceremony to be about our love story and how we make a great team. Carina went above and beyond and it seemed like she had known us for years. She was so easy to work with and allowed us to have a Skype meeting to get to know each other. She was also very speedy on communication via email. I highly recommend hiring her!!

Excellent service!

Carina officiated our elopement ceremony in Tuscany. We live in the U.S. and do not speak Italian and Carina communicated clearly in English (written & verbal) and made the entire process very easy for us. She asked all the right questions to get us thinking of the kind of ceremony experience we were looking for and she delivered with perfection! Her script was substantive, heartfelt, and just the right length to create an intimate, emotional ambience. We are Christians so we wanted to involve God in our ceremony and she wrote just the right script that was spiritual rather than formal religious — which was just what we were looking for. We wrote our own vows and she didn’t pressure us to submit them to her in advance or give us ‘rules’ to follow, which was nice to not have that added pressure. However, she did make suggestions along the way. She helped us determine our specific location (on a very large estate property) and the location she chose (a dock on a pond — with lilly pads!) turned out to be absolutely perfect! Overall she was very helpful, patient, knowledgeable and professional throughout the process. My husband and I agreed that Carina did an

“The best wedding officiant ever!””

We definetely had the best officiant wedding ever. Since the first contact (via email) Carina proved to be a professional really engaged for making our day a special and unforgettable moment. We are from Brazil and had planned our vacation and elopment wedding in Tuscany – with just 6 weeks of planning. We thought Carina wouldn’t be able to to prepare such a beautiful cereomony in a short deadline, but she did more than we expected. She was always avaiable for skype calls, messages and emails – and answer them quickly. She also recommended great professionals such as photographers and florists to be with us! When we met Carina in person, 3 days before the wedding, we felt as she was an old friend. She really loves what she does and know how this moment is important for a couple. She also take us to visit a park, in Certaldo, where we could take pictures and have our “wedding picnic” after the ceremomy with a beautiful sunset.

My most professional & kind vendor

Carina was a dream to work with from my first inquiry message to when I said goodbye on my wedding day. She was by far the most professional and kind vendor I worked with throughout my planning process. We started late due my hair and makeup running over and she reassured me it was not an issue and so I was able to do some pictures beforehand without feeling rushed. Carina was well put together and dressed nicely (Which is something to consider when choosing an officiant, as they will be in your photos!!). She tailored her speech and recited it so well that my husband and I burst into tears about two minutes into the ceremony. We also included the symbolic certificate into our ceremony which is a beautiful keepsake. I am so glad I did not simply ask a friend to officiant our wedding and hired a professional. My guests raved about Carina! It was 1000% worth it.

Beautiful & thoughtful Celebrant

Carina was the perfect wedding celebrant who immediately got ‘us’ as a couple! We wanted a classic ceremony but with a loving twist, and that is exactly what we got! All the guests, my wife and both families were in tears with her beautiful and thoughtful ceremony that touched on how we met, fell in love and ended up all the way in Certaldo in Italy to celebrate. She also made the whole process really easy for us in the lead up and during the wedding week.
I would recommend Carina to everyone, she really understood who we are as a couple, and even wrote a lovely part of the service around my not very by-the-book ‘jewish’ upbringing!

“The best we could have asked for”

Carina was incredible from start to finish. She perfectly tailored our wedding ceremony, to a level beyond our imagination. Her service was true professionalism with a blend of friendliness and comfortability – much needed when planning a wedding abroad. We cannot fault anything from our first exchange through email, to meeting and engaging with Carina on our big day. Thank you so much, you have a special place in our hearts.
