Danielle M Baker Award Winning Wedding Officiant, Minister & Public Speaker
We feel very fortunate and blessed to have found Danielle to officiate our wedding. She was amazing to work with from the first day I met her to the day of our wedding. Danielle is extremely friendly, personable, helpful, and REAL. I felt like I had known her forever. That’s just the type of person she is – incredibly genuine and sincere. From the beginning I was very specific about what we wanted and did not want for our ceremony. Danielle was able to immediately write the PERFECT ceremony for us. I would recommend Danielle to anyone getting married; you definitely won’t find better than her!

Danielle was great! She knew everything we didn't and even reminded us to pick up our marriage certificate two days before the wedding (can you imagine if we had forgotten?). She provided several contacts for photographers, planners, caterers, etc. and worked well with the people we chose. Danielle also wrote a beautiful custom ceremony and had no problem sending several drafts back and forth until it was just right! Couldn't have asked for a better wedding Officiant and I would recommend her to any engaged couple looking for a heartfelt ceremony that everyone will remember.

My husband and I met Danielle at a friend's wedding exactly one year from our own wedding date. We had no officiant yet and didn't even know where or how to start looking for one, but when we saw how loving and caring Danielle was to our friends we casually asked her what she was doing a year from then. Thankfully she was available!
Fast forward to one year later as we prepared for our big day. The weather forecast predicted rain and Danielle brought her amazing can-do, positive attitude - accented with a little splash of sass - to both our rainy rehearsal and our rainy wedding. Every time I got concerned, Danielle was there to calm me down, reassure me, and otherwise remind me that no matter what happened she would make sure we were married at the end of the day. And it turned out she had already worked with my Day-Of planner AND my photographer, and her team-spirit was absolutely essential to getting us all in place. As for our ceremony - my husband and I are not religious. If laughter were a religion, it would be the one we subscribe to. Danielle took all of our needs, requests, and silly personalities into account, and she wrote literally the *perfect* ceremony for us. I am so glad we were smart enough to recognize at our friends wedding, right then and there, how special Danielle is. Choosing her to be the officiant for our wedding was the easiest choice we ever made. It was natural, it was right, and it was perfect.
We were blessed with the unique opportunity to 'preview' her work before we committed to her, but I hope this review will provide other brides with all they need to know to decide Danielle is, without a doubt, a professional who loves her job and whom you will love.
Thank you, Danielle! We love you!!!

Danielle was an integral part of our wedding day. She was extremely responsive, always answering us within 24 hours, usually a lot less. We Skyped with Danielle since we do not live in the same City as her, and from the information attained in our conversation she prepared us a unique and special wedding ceremony. Danielle wanted to make sure it was perfect and she was very open to making any changes to ensure our day was perfect. On the day of the wedding, Danielle arrived early and was very willing to help with all last minute details. It turns out we needed her more than we knew…she did my hair! Since we had a small wedding, my sisters were going to attempt to curl my hair. Danielle saved the day by offering to do it for us! Not only did she take the pressure off my sisters, but I received a lot of compliments on how great it looked; especially from my new husband. Danielle was very personable and helped make sure all of our guests felt comfortable and relaxed. She went significantly above and beyond the duties associated with an Officiant and my husband and I will always be extremely grateful we chose her for our wedding day.

When my husband and I met Danielle we knew that she could do what we wanted. Neither of us are very religious and we wanted a ceremony that had a more spiritual overtone rather than traditional/religious. Danielle was open to new ideas and worked with us to create the perfect romantic ceremony. She was always available to answer any questions we had.

Danielle is a true master of her craft. She guided my husband and I through some of the most important words we will ever say to each other. I can't begin to express how much of a comfort it was to have Danielle with me throughout this process. She created a beautiful ceremony for us and was open to all suggestions and changes I had. Not only did we have an amazing officiant who believes in true love, but we also have a new friend. Thank you so much Danielle!

Danielle is the Best! She was so professional, pleasant and very personal. I felt like I had known her for years. She was in communication with us from the day we first contacted her and always answered any questions or concerns we had right away. She even contacted our photographer when we tried and weren't getting any response back. Danielle wrote the most awesome ceremony with how we met, words on marriage, Love Letters from each other and a Sand Ceremony.. I will never forget the day and thanks to Danielle for being a big part of it!

Don and I had our wedding at our home and wanted a totally relaxed day with family and friends and you made that happen. I felt like I knew Danielle the moment we met. We sat down, went over the ceremony and by the time it started we were so relaxed and having fun. The ceremony was beautiful, touching and everyone thought it was wonderful and wanted a copy of the ‘Love’ quote at the end. Danielle, thank you so much for making this the most special day for us.

I was trying to find someone that could perform a short and simple ceremony for me and Ray to get married. We have both been married before and just wanted something that was special for the both of us to remember. I found several names on the justice of the peace website and called Danielle first. She was so nice and very interested in the type of wedding me and Ray wanted. I just told her a simple but meaningful ceremony and she put that plan together. We had spoken on Friday June 1st and on Sunday June 3rd, we had a lovely ceremony at the Greer City Park. I could not have chosen a better person to perform our ceremony. Danielle has a great personality and was the perfect wedding Officiant for us. She will make it happen for you. All you have to do is call her like I did. I want to Thank her so much for everything she did for me and Ray and we will always be grateful for that.

Both Mike and I found Danielle to be extremely professional and personable. She made you feel like she was part of your family and concerned that you would get the kind of wedding you wanted. She allowed us to call her or meet with her as much as we felt necessary and was not ever too busy to return our calls. I felt we had made a friend. Our wedding was exactly what we wanted and our families enjoyed our celebration.

Danielle was perfect. It was our day in every way because of her. She conducted our ceremony in the most professional and courteous manner. Since we were a couple with a budget in mind, Danielle's costs for her services were very economical. An added plus was a number of photos she offered us to help us capture our priceless moments.
