Hello, Pat!
Now back from our idyllic wedding trip to Santa Fe, Daniel and I would like to thank you for your service as our wedding officiant extraordinaire! You did a wonderful job of weaving our stories into whole cloth, and creating just what we’d asked for–a meaningful ceremony to mark our transition to married life. Each of us had tears in our eyes at points during the ceremony, and Felicity commented that it had been one of the more memorable ceremonies she had witnessed.
Also, a favor . . . you printed our vows out so nicely on such pretty cards. I nearly asked you for them as you left, and regret not having done so. Is it possible for you to send them? It would be nice to have them as mementos and reminders.
Thank you again for helping our day be beautiful!
Kind regards,



We were thrilled with our wedding ceremony performed by Pat. She gave us each a questionnaire so she could learn about us as individuals and as a couple. She then weaved the stories and facts into the celebration. Since we are both tequila fans, she contrived a tequila ritual as part of the ceremony (highly recommended!!). We couldn’t be happier and after waiting 23 years to do this, it was important that we get it right. Laura 04/23/2015

My spouse and I chose Pat to perform our wedding. Richard corresponded with Pat and she asked a number of questions geared toward meeting our needs for this special day. Pat composed a beautiful, customized ceremony for the two of us, and while I didn’t expect to get choked up, the meaning and choice of her words was so heartfelt and perfect that I did get a lump in my throat. Our witnesses commented that it was the most beautiful ceremony they had seen. What made the ceremony so special was not the decor, or how anyone was dressed, but how moving Pat’s words were, and how calm and easy the wedding felt. She exceeded our expectations, and I would very highly recommend her if you want a customized, stress-free, beautifully composed ceremony on your special day. 04/20/2015

Pat engaged us in a very thorough and thoughtful process leading up to the wedding to make sure that our ceremony was personal and captured the true essence of our relationship. The wedding was just what we wanted and our friends and family loved hearing the stories of our relationship. We highly recommend Pat as a wedding officiant.

Wedding: 10/10/2014

Pat’s work made our small, private wedding an event to remember. She combined each of our thoughts into one of the most beautifully written and spoken ceremonies ever. We felt an immediate connection to her. She is absolutely amazing! ~Byron


Hi Pat,
We can’t thank you enough for making our ceremony more than perfect. Your energy and warmth was felt by all. We could not have asked for a more perfect renewal of vows. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.
We will see you again in 25 years. 😉 Or better, 13 years. xoxo
Love to you.
~Anita Singh

kris-jenPat performed a wonderful ceremony for our wedding. She was very helpful before the ceremony and really helped us get things organized and ready with a two day notice. She stayed in constant contact with us and even provided a person to take pictures during the ceremony. We definitely recommend Pat for your wedding ceremony.

I called Pat at the last mimute and told her exactly what i wanted..a quick civil union cermony..something that wouldnt take away from the church wedding down the road in 2015. i couldnt have asked for a more PERFECT ceremony. Pat understands and respects your wishes and i will be calling her for my large church wedding. She truly made my stressful day turn into something to always remember and i thank her from the bottom of my heart.

Pat was the Officiate for our wedding. It was very private and personalized. I don’t know how she does it but she’s gifted at creating your very own ceremony. The communication lines were flowing the whole time. She was also very flexible seeing as we wanted our ceremony to be at sunrise on a lake in the mountains. Every word was special, just for us, she took the time and asked the right questions to get to know us. I highly recommend Pat, she’s awesome!!

Pat was the best choice we could have made to officiate our wedding ceremony. We interviewed several officiants. She was very professional, personable and accessible over the phone and email during the planning process. By the time we met her (we were planning from out of town), it felt as though we knew her well. She was very open to ideas and offered wonderful suggestions that we incorporated into our wedding. Pat made our ceremony very special with her attentiveness to detail and very caring attitude. She clearly has her heart in what she does. Although Pat’s rates are exremely competive for her services, I would have paid above and beyond for what she gave to us…and that was making our wedding very intimate and personalized. She made our Santa Fe wedding very memorable.

My life partner and I, after many years together, decided to marry shortly after the new year. With only a few days notice, Pat created a lovely ceremony for us and, on the big day, was helpful, flexible, and efficient. She really made us feel special and unique…it was clear that she incorporated our “story” into the ceremony!

Pat was so wonderful throughout the process. She was easy to get in touch with, created a beautiful ceremony for us to remember always. She was prompt, prepared, and so very pleasant; making us feel so special on our wedding day!

Ms. Murphy officiated our 30th anniversary vow renewal. It was small, quaint and she performed a beautiful, heart warming ceremony. She was open to ideas and a true professional. We recommend her services to anyone looking for originality with a personal touch.

annaPat did an amazing job as our officiant! We received so many wonderful comments about our ceremony. She brings love stories to life. Many of our guests said it kept them so intrigued and made them feel like they were on our journey with us. If you are looking for a unique and one-of-a-kind wedding ceremony, I highly recommend Pat Murphy!


Hello Pat,
Julie & I are leaving Santa Fe tomorrow to roam around more of NM before we head back home to Utah.
I just wanted to thank you again for officiating our wedding ceremony. We have had a wonderful life together all these years, but you have now made it possible for us to begin another chapter. In reflection, I feel our time in Santa Fe has brought us together with kindred souls who will forever remain in our hearts and lives. For you it may be another ceremony, but for us it is something we will cherish and honor the rest of our lives. Thank you for being part of that and making it magical.  I sincerely hope our paths cross many times in the future. Wishing you love, peace, and kindness…. Always. -Lisa & Julie   3P9A1545-2


On short notice, Pat assisted my wife in preparing a ceremoney that participants said was unique and fun; in addition, my wife and I felt that our needs were addressed, our wishes respected, and our personal twists were incorporated.  I am a man of few words and I go with the flow, but my wife has very high standards and she was so pleased by Pat’s assistance.  In planning, Pat seemd well organized and offered great suggestions; she also asked us good questions and was willing to modify the ceremony to reflect our unique style  We had contacted another celebrant who didn’t want to work with us..  Pat delivered the ceremony in a polished, professional way and was very flexible regarding last minute changes (and misbehaving family dogs).  I would recommend her very highly!!

Dear Pat,

Thank you for the wonderful wedding ceremony you conducted for us on our property on Friday. It was PERFECT ! It was such a pleasure meeting you.  Again, the ceremony was exactly us — small and private for Susan and for me, outside on our land (and not in a government building) with beautiful sentiments expressed. We greatly appreciate your quick assistance in this regard, since we did not give you much lead time.  
Thanks again,
Jan and Susan
