Christina Turner Ward ~ Spirithearts

We absolutely loved working with Christina. We were apprehensive to have our ceremony performed by somebody we did not have a prior personal connection with, but she really takes the time to get to know you and to discover what is important to your relationship. The in-person meeting is invaluable and will let her get to know you and for you to understand her style better. We had many of our guests come up to us during cocktail hour to let us know how beautiful they thought the ceremony was. As much as it was the information we provided, Christina's writing and touches really bring everything to life in a touching way. We would recommend her in a heartbeat!

I was so glad when we found Christina! My husband and I used her services for our wedding in November. She was so easy to work with and did everything we wanted for the ceremony. Christina put together the best ceremony and we got so many compliments on her throughout the wedding night. I was glad she had sent us a list of side ceremonies beforehand because we found a wonderful knot tying ceremony. She really made our ceremony, it was better than we ever could have expected! Highly recommend her!

Thank you for your kinds words Chelsea. It was so special that you used the knot tying ceremony as a way of including Jake's grandfather. Best wishes!

Christina crafted a beautiful wedding ceremony for us that did not feel templated or boring - it was full of personal details about us. I had some family members tell me that they couldn't stop crying throughout the ceremony! She responded to us every time we had a question and helped us get our personal vows together. On the day of our wedding, we had unseasonably hot fall weather and it was nearly 90 degrees. We had concerns about having to shorten the ceremony but Christina did not make it feel rushed at all. It was the most important part of the day for us, so that was important.

Our original officiant bailed three days before our wedding due to a family emergency, and Christina saved the day! She was such a dream to work with. She responded promptly to all of our emails, and was so sweet to work with. We were given a few different ceremonies to chose from, and we worked together to edit it to fit us. Our wedding worked out seamlessly, and was exactly what I imagined. I highly recommend Christina!

My husband and I cannot say enough about our experiences with Christina! Right from our initial meeting, she put us at ease and answered all of our questions. Christina took the time to get to know us and our ceremony truly reflected our love for one another. She was very timely and responsive to e-mails, getting back to us the very same day. Christina sent my husband and I questionnaires which we filled out separately and drafted a ceremony from our responses. We then added to and revised the ceremony to create our perfect ceremony! If you are looking for a wedding officiant who will work with you and take the time to personalize the perfect ceremony for you, Christina Turner Ward is the one!
