My fiance chose Dianne Spaulding as the officiant for our wedding. Our first meeting together went ok. She seemed nice enough and offered a quick ceremony. Which worked for us, because neither one of us enjoys being in the spot light. On the day of our wedding Ms. Spaulding drove me CRAZY! She had told us that we could pay her the day of the wedding. Which was fine. However, she approached me for payment while I was still in a chair getting my hair done 15min. before the ceremony was to start. I offered to write her a check as soon as I was done. She agreed. Within 20min. she was back asking for payment again. At this point my hair and make up was taking longer than expected and I was growing anxious to get on with the ceremony. Again, I told her I would write her a check as soon as I was done. Again she agreed. Then she approached my parents and wedding coordinator about payment and she also complained that things were running late! Finally, after her 3 inquiry into payment I wrote her a check. She got paid $150 for 10 mins of work and was at the hall no more than an hour total and complained the entire hour! Please, for your sanity find another officiant!!!
Pros: Offers a quick ceremony
Cons: Everything else
