We want to say a big THANK YOU for helping make our wedding day special! We really appreciate all the help and advice, and we enjoyed the ceremony.
Carolyn delivers exactly what she advertises - a short, sweet ceremony - which was exactly what we wanted!
We hired Carolyn as our wedding officiant and were extremely pleased with her services. We discussed everything over the phone with her prior to booking. Her policies were very clear, and she provided us with all of the information we needed well in advance of our ceremony. She allows couples to add customized readings, symbolisms, etc. to their events, but we wanted a short and sweet ceremony, and that’s exactly what we got! We had a phone rehearsal the day prior to the event, where she explained exactly what she would do from the time she arrived to the time she left the venue. We also went over pronunciation of our names and details about the wedding party, etc. She was very professional, but also fun.
Her pricing is very reasonable. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant!

Carolyn was helpful throughout the planning process, communicating what steps we needed to complete and when. We also hired Carolyn to lead the rehearsal at our venue. I am so glad we did this because I would have had no idea how to organize 20+ people and make sure they knew their roles for the big day. Thanks to the extra help we got at the rehearsal, the actual ceremony went off without a hitch! Carolyn did a terrific job officiating, making our ceremony both meaningful for myself and my new husband and entertaining for our guests. 5 stars for everything!

Carolyn was the perfect officiant for us. We aren’t particularly religious so we didn’t really want that. We wanted something short, sweet, and to the point. That is exactly what she gave us for an amazing price. We also got to pick essentially all of the elements of the ceremony so it wasn’t the same nickel speech as every other wedding. She also made sure we would all be in the same page with the phone rehearsal which eased both of our minds.
Carolyn was a perfect fit for our ceremony.

Carolyn is very professional and a seasoned officiant. She made sure to prepare us for the ceremony and allowed us to customize the ceremony to best represent us as individuals. She was punctual and also very personable from the moment we met. Carolyn made our intimate ceremony very special. She was very enthusiastic and made us feel so comfortable in front of our friends and family on one of the most important days of our life. We highly recommend Carolyn Burke as a wedding officiant.

Carolyn officiated our wedding at City Hall. We are so grateful she worked with us. She made us feel comfortable leading up to the wedding. She was so clear and easy to communicate with which is so nice for a nervous bride-to-be.
Most importantly, she was pleasant and we are happy she shared in our love and excitement on our wedding day.

Carolyn was excellent to work with. She was easy to reach and always so easy to talk to. Truly the glue that held us all together on my big day! We will always remember how you made our ceremony uniquely ours.
~ April and Nick at the Thornhill Mansion in Faust Park
Carolyn Burke was an excellent officiant for our wedding. She was very flexible and willing to handle the ceremony in the relaxed mood we wanted for the short service and to take part in the light-heartedness. We’ve been together for 29 years so we didn’t want anything solemn! We highly recommend Carolyn’s service!

Carolyn Burke officiated our wedding on 10/7/17. She was very organized and made sure all the details were ironed out before our big day. Any questions I had she answered. She was also easy to get in touch with, especially the morning of when it was clear Mother Nature was not going to cooperate with our outdoor ceremony. We very much appreciated the attentiveness and thoughtfulness she gave us. Thank you!
~ Jamie and Jeffrey at Lafayette Square Park
Carolyn was wonderful! She was a great calming presence before and during the wedding. She helped me gather my thoughts and determine the processional order. I would 100% recommend Carolyn!
~ Mandi and Gary at The Jewel Box in Forest Park
Carolyn officiated our wedding and we're really happy we chose her. She was very professional, accommodating, and warm. She explained to us the plan in advance and we were able to stick to it perfectly. We'd definitely recommend her for your service especially if you're clueless, like we were, about the whole process.
