What a beautiful wedding set up you and the team made for us. Thank you for all the hard work, we were very pleased!
Thank you so much for making our Fort Myers Beach wedding so meaningful. It was everything we dreamed of!
We couldn’t have selected a better officiate!! Stephanie went above and beyond to make sure every detail of our ceremony was perfect.
She even made suggestions that I am so happy I listened to, such as, doing a second kiss with my husband, so she could step aside and we would have the perfect photo of just us, kissing under the arch! And having a second reading so my ceremony was the correct length!
She also gave us the opportunity to take the complimentary DISC Assessment for couples. It was in-depth and enlightening. She walked us through our results and explained them in depth. We really enjoyed this opportunity and experience.
Stephanie is very knowledgeable and professional while being warm and friendly at the same time. I would recommend Stephanie 10/10 to officiate your wedding!
Thank you ever so much for your support and tireless efforts in helping Storyteller’s Creative Arts make a difference through our fund-raising events.

We’d like to take a moment and thank Stephanie and Weddings Made Simple for an absolutely wonderful wedding. Stephanie was a measure of calm during all the controlled chaos that a wedding can bring. She and her staff made things absolutely spectacular for our special day. Our beach wedding was everything she said it would be and more and all the worry and guess work was eliminated thanks to Stephanie! If you’re planning a beach wedding and want to keep things simple for yourself, we highly recommend Stephanie and Weddings Made Simple. Thanks, Stephanie, for making our day so very special!

I would like to take this opportunity and express our appreciation and very thankful for your service, we had the most beautiful wedding ceremony at Delnor-Wiggins State Park. Our families enjoyed the ceremony how beautiful the beach was decorated, and the weather was awesome. Stephanie, and staff, I am very pleased and we are glad you made our special day memorable.

After extensive research in trying to find an official to marry us, Stephanie and the staff at “Weddings Made Simple” were the people for us! We are from MA and wanted to get married in Naples on the beach. She was very helpful in long distance planning and the most affordable. We had a very small, intimate wedding and she made it every thing I dreamed it would be. The decorative bamboo arch was beautiful and the ending “Sand Ceremony” was well worth it. This was also planned in a short 2 month period. Can’t say enough about Stephanie, would definitely recommend her to you!!
We just wanted to tell you thank you so much for everything! It was great to meet you and have you marry us. I would never have wanted anyone else to do the ceremony. You made it so easy. We will keep in touch. Thank you for everything.
— Nancy and Bryan

Choosing Naples, Fl was not a tough decision for us – we love Vanderbilt Beach and the amazing sunsets. But once we started planning the wedding, we quickly realized that we did not have the knowledge, relationships, nor the time, to find all the best wedding resources in the Naples area. A friend referred us to Stephanie and we began to work with her for about nine months before the wedding. She quickly helped us identify all the critical elements, the time-lines for making decisions and immediately began to educate us on the best wedding professionals in the area. We made one trip to Naples before the wedding, and in 2.5 extremely well organized days, we met and selected all the perspective suppliers. Her guidance and fantastic taste helped in our selections and final plans. Her calm, organized and flexible support on the days leading up to the event allowed us to relax with our family and friends and enjoy our destination wedding. To quote the groom….”she was brilliant”.
— Jane and Dave

We were totally in awe of the wonderful job you did! We can’t thank you enough for how special you made us feel…….your expertise and guidance, Stephanie, we loved your soft spoken demeanor and elegance. P.S. We will be sure to contact you on our 50th!!

I want to thank you for all your help with the wedding! Everything went smoothly and everyone had fun! Thank you for your advice, making the event not only high quality…but affordable.
