George & Staci knew each other for a very long time before marrying at Newcastle Wedding Gardens. They met when they were both 19 and volunteering as counselors at a camp for families impacted by childhood cancer. Their dedication to helping others brought them together and they built a life together full of selfless acts of kindness. Many thanks to Mike Jensen Videography for this beautiful little film.
The lovely, heartfelt, Hobbit and fantasy game inspired wedding of Justin & Kristen which took place at Arden Hills Country Club. With many thanks to Martin Vo. A short peek at their very personal and unique wedding.
I am featured in the blog post "New Beginnings" by Angelyn Shapiro, telling the story of how I got to here: New Beginnings
From Style magazine, a little blurb about me and my business...
A little bit about the "unplugged" speech for weddings. I can gently remind guests (if you like, it's up to you) at the beginning of a ceremony that you have hired a wonderful photographer, so please sit back and enjoy the ceremony and how it feels and let the photographer capture how it looks.

"We initially stumbled upon Cindie Wilding by “accident” or rather a stroke of fate. Looking for a venue for our October 11th wedding, we found Cindie from a venue’s list of preferred vendors. They also had a picture of her on their site and we immediately felt the warmth about her. Even through the screen! We met with her a few months later and we are so happy we did. We didn’t know too specifically what we were searching for in a celebrant but after meeting with Cindie, we knew we wanted her warmth and grace present on our big day. Cindie was always prompt with emails and phone messages being returned and answering any questions we had . When we received our personalized ceremony I was overcome with emotion. It was so much more than we ever knew we wanted. Our ceremony was personal, meaningful, and relevant to our lives as a couple. Cindie listened to my husband and I and perfectly translated our love story on our big day. We respect the amazing gift Cindie has, and admire her beautiful and gentle spirit. We are forever grateful to have found her!! Thank you so, so much Cindie!" ~ With love, Dorothy and Chase
"I can't say enough about Cindie! She made my wedding ceremony such an amazing event! She made the ceremony unique and custom to my husband and I. She is professional, comforting, and truly great at what she does! Everyone that attended our wedding has commented multiple times about the ceremony being absolutely perfect!!! I would recommend her to all engaged couples a million times over!" ~ Amanda & Trevor
"My husband and I were extremely pleased with Cindie's services for our wedding. She was very flexible for our inital meeting and met us at our office in Roseville. This was very convenient for us. We instantly knew that Cindie was just what we were looking for. Cindie did a fantastic job putting together our vow's and the entire ceremony. The guests really enjoyed the ceremony, thanks to Cindie. I would definitely recommend Cindie if you are looking for a reliable, honest and caring officiant." ~ Nicole & Roland
"Wow, is all I can say about my big day and everything Cindie did for us! It was very special and intimate just like we asked. She made sure our day was everything we ever wanted. I was referred to her by Kelly Dalisa owner and operator at Monte Verde Inn (best place to get married) and instantly knew Cindie was going to be able to make my day everything I ever wanted. Yes she may just do the ceremony but the ceremony is where the magic happens and where you seal the deal with your partner!
I couldn't speak more highly of Cindie!!!! Thank you Cindie for the best day of my life!" ~ Alexandra & Carl
"Cindie is absolutely fantastic at what she does and really enjoys it! She was easy to work with, professional, flexible and made it clear from the beginning that we would be well taken care of. We absolutely loved the ceremony that she drafted for us and felt she really understood who we were as a couple and what we wanted to portray to our guests! Thank you Cindie! Our ceremony was perfect!" ~ Kacy & Kevin
"After extensive searching online this summer, my fiancee and I paused on wedding planning for a couple months since I am a teacher and needed to get the school year underway before I could give adequate attention to the wedding planning process. Two months after looking for officiants, I couldn't remember a single one-- except Cindie! She seemed so genuine and well above the rest in terms of personality and approachability so my fiancee and I met with her last night. We were so happy with her that we committed even before walking away from the table (this is a big deal since we NEVER make big decisions without talking privately first). She was just so wonderful and I am so pleased we will be working with her for our wedding next summer!" ~ Ashley & Caitlyn
"Cindie did a wonderful job as the officiant for our recent outdoor wedding. Many of our guests commented on how our ceremony was the most personal and unique that they had been a part of. Cindie crafted the ceremony around my and my wife's story and how we met and the love that we share. This attention to detail and her ability as a public speaker impressed us, our guests, and made the wedding ceremony the best it could be. Thank you Cindie!" ~ Katie & Joe
"We can not say enough good about Cindie!! I wish we could give her 10000 stars!! She was wonderful from beginning to end. She created a ceremony that was off the chart. At our first meet my fiancé and were a bit nervous, but Cindie was so easy going, and made us feel comfortable the moment we sat down together. Leaving the meeting we were very excited, relived and confident that we had picked the perfect officiant for our one and only very special day. Cindie is VERY patient, we know this by experience! My fiancé was so busy with work that it was hard to get him to sit down and fill out his couple questionnaire. We literally gave Cindie his questionnaire three days before the wedding!!!! Yikes!! Cindie was not worried but confident she would put together a beautiful ceremony and that's exactly what she did!!!!!
The first time we read our ceremony we were in tears!! I couldn't believe it was our own story. It was perfect and we were even more excited to share our special day. We told Cindie we wanted a short yet sweet ceremony, it was 102 degrees that day and Cindie had a smile on her face the whole time:) Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful to say the least. Immediately after the ceremony (and still today) I had guest telling me how wonderful and how beautiful our story was. My husband and I are high school sweethearts and have four children together. Even after 12 years together most people still didn't know our "love story". Sharing our story was my favorite part of my wedding. The guests were smiling, laughing, and crying, it really touched home.
Thank you so much Cindie for making our dream ceremony/wedding become reality. I have printed and framed our ceremony to put in our home, I love reading it
If you are looking for a unique, heart felt ceremony that you and your guest will NEVER forget Cindie is the one. Thank you Cindie you made our day even more special then we ever imagined. I wish I could marry my husband all over again! I know we will be seeing you again!" ~The Reyes Family
"We were connected with Cindie through our venue (Park Winters) and we were lucky to not have to stress about who would marry us. What we loved about Cindie is how she makes a unique ceremony for each couple. We wanted to incorporate the Japanese Sake Ceremony and she was happy to accommodate and even took the time to research and helped make suggestions. We wanted a ceremony that was not too short but not too long and it was just perfect and we loved how it all came together! Thank you so much Cindie!" ~ Amber & Jim
