Thank you so much for your service! You are a god-send.

Thanks again for all of your help in getting us some legal protection and in giving us the perfect ceremony!

We never thought we'd cry at our own wedding. You made it so special.

My husband and I want to Thank You again for the beautiful and professional manner with which you handled our wedding and all that went before it. We enjoyed meeting you, and of course it was obvious that you put a lot of energy and emotion into the whole process. The church was a perfect setting, and the service very beautiful. It was an experience we will remember all our lives.

you don't know how much your help means to us

You are lovely....

Ed Ingebretsen is an incredibly professional, flexible and understanding officiant. He tirelessly worked with us to provide helpful guidance and make sure that our ceremony was exactly the way we wanted it to be. For us that meant fewer religious references, and Ed was very flexible to make that happen. Being a professor Ed is incredibly well-versed in literature, poetry and philosophy, and he did an amazing job weaving quotes, poems and other nuggets of wisdom into our ceremony so that everyone found something that deeply resonated with them. He is also great at engaging family and friends into the ceremony making sure that they feel like participants rather than like passive observers. We received so many compliments, and would recommend Ed to anyone without any hesitation!

We just wanted to thank you again for everything you did to make our wedding possible. It was better than we could have ever hoped for and it was exactly what we wanted for our big day. We will always be grateful for your kindness and attention to both of us!

We're still hearing your praises sung by more and more wedding guests and of course we are your most vocal boosters.. Thank you for making our wedding so beautiful, so moving.

Thank you again so much. It was a really special day, something that John and I have looked forward to for years now.

We wanted to thank you for marrying us yesterday. The service was just what we had in mind: dignified and brief. We truly appreciate your professional demeanor and they way you were able to accommodate us on such short notice.

THANK YOU for such a beautiful ceremony. Everyone loved it. YOU were perfect. You set the exact tone that we wanted.

The service was perfect! You helped make our special day that much more special

We cannot find the words to tell you how happy and pleased we are with you and your handling of our marriage arrangements. When I get more time to think I will write you a reference to use. The calls from the people who knew have been great they want to know everything especially how easy it was for us.

I need to write down all the research we did, why we chose D.C., why we chose you, and how the time line, convenience of D.C. and cost make it the best option. Again you will never know how much you are appreciated.

We just wanted to say thank you again for everything. You were a tremendous help and the ceremony was perfect. We could not have asked for more. As we get settled in the area and meet new people, we will sing your praises and recommend you unreservedly. Thank you, Ed. Thank you. Everything felt beautiful and perfect.

Katie and I really can't thank you enough for the beautiful ceremony you performed for us on May 12. It was intimate and meaningful for our families and ourselves, just as we hoped it would be. You really saved the day for us when our first officiant canceled so close to the date of our wedding, and we'll never forget your kindness and professionalism. Thank you.

We truly had an amazing time in D.C. The whole experience was exactly what we wanted to start this next chapter in our lives. Thank you.

I want to thank you for your excellent service and help while Daniel and I were in DC and before. The entire experience went well thanks to you and the suggestions that you made. We were very pleased with the hotel, the venue for the ceremony, and everything else regarding the trip. If you want to use us as a reference in any way please feel free to do so.

With all the excitement of the evening we didn't get a chance to express how much we appreciated all that you did for us. You helped make our special occasion a truly special event that neither of us will ever forget. The Shakespeare sonnet was the topic of many conversations that evening and we owe that all to you. You are a true professional and a class act in every sense and you put us as ease from the moment we first met.
