We were in a bind when our original officiant bailed on us only 10 days before our wedding, but Sonia came to the rescue! We discovered her on CrackerJack, and wow, are we glad we did! From the moment we hired her, she hit the ground running. She assisted us with our vows, ceremony, and even our marriage license, which she promptly submitted the next day. Sonia was an incredibly professional and sweet person, and our ceremony was simply stunning. If you want your ceremony to run without a hitch, there's no one we'd recommend more highly than Sonia. She brought our vision to life, and we can't thank her enough!

Hiring Sonia as our officiant was the best decision we could have made. She was incredibly helpful, providing us with an outline of the ceremony and ensuring that everything ran smoothly on our wedding day. Sonia responded promptly to any questions we had and was both professional and punctual. Despite a slight delay, Sonia remained unfazed and even helped us with our marriage license. What's more, it was reassuring to learn that she had a backup plan in case of unforeseen circumstances such as COVID. Overall, we would highly recommend Sonia as a reliable, professional, and detail-oriented officiant.

Sonia was the perfect choice for our wedding at SF City Hall. Her outstanding professionalism and attentiveness to my concerns regarding the ceremony took away any stress that I had been feeling regarding the search for the right officiant. Sonia made our day stress-free and effortless, adding a special touch to our celebration with her exceptional service.

Our wedding wouldn't have been as successful without Sonia as our officiant. Despite giving her only a 10-day notice, she was able to pull everything off perfectly. We discovered Sonia on CrackerJack, and she lived up to her reputation. Sonia came early on the day of the wedding, ensuring that we made it to our early dinner reservations. We didn't have any rehearsal yet everything went seamlessly. When I walked into the room, Sonia played Ave Maria. During the ceremony, she included our deceased parents' names and a unity candle - it was very touching. We highly recommend Sonia as a wedding officiant; she is absolutely magnificent.

Sonia provided us with an outstanding experience. At first, we were uncertain about our ceremony preferences. However, Sonia asked the perfect questions to acquire an understanding of our values, then suggested innovative additions such as the sand ceremony. We communicated through two video calls and emails to sculpt the ceremony according to our preferences. Sonia was always prompt to our meetings and dressed in professional attire. Additionally, she thoroughly fulfilled our Spanish language requirement as she is fluent in both English and Spanish. Her pricing was fair, especially considering she traveled from Manteca to officiate in Redwood City. Sonia even guided us through the marriage license and certificate procedure. She helped us create our dream wedding ceremony and we enthusiastically recommend her!
