Five Stars for Weddings by Phyllis

Phyllis is an absolutely beautiful wedding officiant. We are so fortunate to have met her. We give her 5 stars!!!!!

Our Day Made Special

Phyllis performed the vow renewal ceremony for our 40th Anniversary on December 15, 2019 on the beach of Marco Island. My husband planned the whole 5-day vacation (away from cold, snowy Minnesota) as a surprise to me and Phyllis was so helpful to him in planning the ceremony! She helped make our day very special ! ❤️

We would choose Phyllis over again!

I couldn't be happier that we chose Phyllis to officiate our wedding. I searched online, read reviews and contacted Phyllis. She responded to my email very quickly, answered any questions we had, made suggestions and explained so much. She is so very sweet, kind and takes pride in what she does. As much as our hearts were in the planning, Phyllis took pride in making our wedding very special and memorable for us. She was not rushed, took many photos for us, suggested the most beautiful spot which we loved and put so much into preparing our ceremony. We wrote our own vows and told her specifics and then told her to take the wheel to incorporate the rest. It was perfect and we couldn't have chosen someone better at what they do than Phyllis. After our wedding, we were going out to eat and she provided us with many suggestions. We would choose Phyllis over again. She is not only a great officiant but a wonderful person.

Definitely Recommend Phyllis

Phyllis was fantastic, very soft spoken and not over the top. She worked with me on short notice and changed the ceremony to fit my needs. We would definitely recommend her to anyone!

Phyllis is Amazing!

Phyllis is amazing! We contacted her last minute (days before our ceremony) and she had availability! The wide range of ceremonies that she offers really allows each couple the opportunity to chose what fits them best. She was prompt on her arrival and a champ for conducting an outside ceremony in the 90F+ south Florida heat. I would highly recommend Phyllis for planned or impromptu ceremonies. We chose to have an intimate ceremony at a relative's house and it could not have run smoother. So glad we chose Phyllis to officiate the ceremony :) Thank you so much again for such a meaningful ceremony! Sincerely, Margaret Lesniewski

Karen Eways and Laurance Reagan Wed on Cape Romano

"We had the pleasure of having Phyllis perform our marriage ceremony. She was very easy to work with, and the ceremony was exactly as we had envisioned. She honored all of our requests. We picked her up by boat and went out to an island. We had requested that we first exchanged our own vows, privately. She had the foresight to take a few pics of us, from afar, giving us privacy yet capturing the memory with a photo. She then performed the agreed upon ceremony, including some additional customized comments that we had requested. She knew exactly what poses to take pics in- and took some great pictures. We were thrilled with the outcome. Even though it was a little bit chilly that day, she was very accommodating to go out on our boat, wrapped in a blanket! We highly recommend Phyllis and would choose her again.

Honored For Your Services

Dear Phyllis, Thank you for helping us with our wedding ceremony. It was absolutely beautiful and perfect! Your wording of the ceremony was everything I hoped for and we were honored to be married by you under God's beautiful creation. Thank you for all you did to help us with every detail. We also appreciate the Keepsake Booklet.

You Are a Gem!

Dear Phyllis, Thank you for being with Mike and I through this journey. I know the Lord brought you to us, ad I am so grateful for His plan and ways! Thank you for giving us direction and advice on how this comes together. You're a gem to get to know and celebrate life with. Thank you again.
With much love,

Weddings by Phyllis Highly Recommended

Phyllis is lovely and a pleasure to work with. She made our 10 year vow renewal ceremony so special and helped us customize it exactly as we envisioned. The beautiful program is a wonderful keepsake and her willingness to take pictures for us was really nice. We look forward to having her for our 25th anniversary renewal! :)

You Made Our Day Special

Dearest Phyllis, Thank you so very much for your services on our wedding day and for making it so special. We loved the words that you spoke and are happy that you provided a family sand ceremony. It was perfect for us. You were a pleasure to work with, so that you. Kind regards.

You Helped Our Day Perfect!

Thank you so much, Phyllis, for being a part of our special day. You were absolutely amazing and you helped make our day perfect! Our ceremony was everything we dreamed of!

Thank You from the Plastino's

Thank you, Phyllis, for capturing these pictures and especially for marrying us... you helped make this day perfect and our ceremony was everything I could have imagined!

Phyllis is Perfect!

We have had the pleasure of Phyllis officiating our wedding 10 years ago and our vow renewal this year. Phyllis goes above and beyond to make the day special and is in constant contact making sure the day is perfect. She is an absolute joy to work with and it has made our vow renewal so special that she was able to fit us in with such short notice. Her expertise really made our day better than we could have imagined. She included our 3 daughters seamlessly into our ceremony and was so helpful with every detail. I can’t say enough about how wonderful Phyllis made our entire family feel. We are greatly appreciative for all she has done for both our special days!

Guessford's Give a 5-Star Rating

Phyllis was such a great officiant! She came prepared and helped ease my nerves by rehearsing with me a month early! The ceremony was very eloquently put together by Phyllis and we couldn't have asked for a better officiant! I would give out a million recommendations for anyone wanted to get married on Marco Island! Thank you for everything, Phyllis!


Thank you, Phyllis! My family thought you were Awesome! We already gave your name to someone at the Marriott. Thank you again.

Phyllis Gets a 5 Star Rating

FIVE STARS!!!! Hands down the best!!!!

Phyllis married my wife, Avie, and I on December 8th 2017. I don't think any words could express how wonderful Phyllis truly is. Organized, affordable, efficient, courteous, PROFESSIONAL, and most importantly, she is full of Love and Life...Eternal Life. Anyone can feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions but something about Phyllis immediately made us love her. She was not just a person who married us, Phyllis was and is a part of our family. Phyllis didn't just marry us but joined our family on December 8, 2017. Her Faith and Love in God is abundant and obvious in a respectful non-offensive, non-over the top, just true real deal way. She was and is the perfect person to have conducted our sacred ceremony. AND SHE WILL BE FOR YOU TOO!!!

I highly and thoroughly recommend Phyllis to conduct your sacred wedding ceremony. If you are looking for someone to handle this eternally important role in your wedding, you have found that person. Put your other options away, Phyllis is perfect for you!!!!

THANKS PHYLLIS!!!! We love you and may God Bless you forever :)

Simple and Magical!

Phyllis made the whole experience both simple and magical. Everything went according to plan, with no stress, which is how a wedding day should be. We are so glad we found Phyllis to organise and perform our wedding ceremony in such a beautiful place as Marco Island. Thanks from Ann and Michael xxx

Incredibly Awesome and Memorable

Dear Phyllis,

"On behalf of both my husband, Jim Kelly, and myself, I would like to take this moment to thank you for performing such an incredibly awesome and memorable vow renewal for us, on South Beach, in Marco, on November 13, 2017. You are truly the best wedding officiant, (and now a close friend), a couple could ask for! The ceremony you performed at sunset was simply marvelous in every respect, and we also would like to thank you, and your son David, for doing us the honor of coming back to our resort hotel, (Marco Beach Ocean Resort), for a celebratory drink with us. We truly are so grateful to have found such a wonderful person as yourself, not only to renew our wedding vows, but to become a true and dear friend as well! You are wonderful, and we love you!"

Special Thank You

Dear Phyllis,

Loren, Chris, Scott and I really enjoyed meeting you. I'd like to say "thank you" from the bottom of my heart for making our renewal so special. xxxx

So Glad We Chose You!

Thanks so much, Phyllis. I am so glad we chose you to do our ceremony! It was great!! The pictures are perfect! Thanks again so much!!

Gorgeous Little Wedding

Phyllis has a well-organized procedure that is also very client-friendly. She was very accommodating and arranged the service to meet our "out of the box" ideas. She was very patient and understanding, which was greatly appreciated when our wedding day got a few large hurdles and time delays thrown at us. Absolutely Beautiful ceremony. This was a peaceful, lovely experience. It was Perfect, just as I had imagined and desired.GREAT Pictures, Phyllis. This was such a gorgeous little wedding. You were wonderful. Thank you SO much!

WBP Highly Recommended

My wife and I just spent a week on Marco Island for our 30th anniversary. We had the pleasure of having Phyllis officiate the renewal of our vows. Phyllis was a joy to work with as we planned the event. In addition to the service, she also provided us with a memory booklet and a number I'd lovely pictures. If you are in the Marco area, I HIGHLY recommend Weddings by Phyllis! We gave her a 5-star rating on Facebook.

A Memorable Ceremony

Phyllis, was so sweet! She officiated our vow renewal even with the threat of rain. We got a little wet on the beach but she made our intimate ceremony such a memorable one.

A True Professional!

Living in New England, we felt like we had a friend helping us arrange our wedding plans on Marco Island. Phyllis was very friendly and accommodating with our thoughts of including our children in the ceremony. She was accessible and returned our phone calls and emails very promptly. A true professional. Thank you, Phyllis, for helping us with the best wedding ceremony ever!

Over-the-top, Genuine, Caring Person=Phyllis

Planning a wedding with four children and an unfamiliar area is extremely stressful and overwhelming. Thankfully I came across Phyllis on my search and she made it so much easier for me! She talked to me on the phone giving me suggestions about Marco Island and even sent me a book that highlighted the island. If I ever had any questions, she promptly emailed or called me back. I cannot emphasise enough how important customer service is and Phyllis is an over-the-top, caring, and genuine person. Thank you again for making our day so stress-free and memorable!

Phyllis went Above & Beyond!

Dear Phyllis, I want to thank you for performing my wedding ceremony. You were an easy, delight to work with. You handled all details with professionalism and warmth. You went above and beyond to make our day special. Nick and I want to thank you for a job well done. I wiil recommend you to anyone I know wanting to marry in the Naples/Marco Island area. it was our pleasure to have you preside over our ceremony.

You left a hugh footprint in our lives.

Phyllis, I cannot think of words enough to express our sincere Thanks to you. These are only just a few. After searching forever to find the perfect wedding planner for my vow renewal, I found you, Phyllis, and I had no idea that you would be so amazing and provide the ceremony of my dreams. From my actual ceremony vows that were written so beautifully on a special linen keepsake to the time spent capturing that perfect sunset moment, to special chosen words and moments of our ceremony, you truly have left a huge foot print in our hearts forever. You were there helping me even just five minutes before from start to finish. You were so fantastic beyond any words that I could ever say. Our ceremony was everything and more that I ever dreamed it could ever be. I just hope that if anyone is ever looking for that dream come true wedding or vow renewal that they talk to you first, Phyllis. I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU. Not often my husband is speechless, but you certainly created our dream ceremony short of nothing except words enough to praise and a lifetime full of special romantic memories and thankfulness. Phyllis, Thank you. May God Bless and protect you always.

It Was Perfect!

Phyllis- just wanted to thank you for doing such a nice job at our wedding ceremony on Saturday. It really was so perfect and simple for us. And nice the weather cooperated!! We did get the booklet and appreciated that also, will like rereading the ceremony and our vows.

A Perfect Wedding!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience with Phyllis! In January we decided to get married on St. Patrick's day during our planned vacation to Marco Island. I googled "wedding officiant on Marco Island" and found Phyllis! In the three months leading up to our wedding, Phyllis answered my many questions promptly! She worked with us to customize our vows to include an Irish Blessing and through her website I found an amazing florist! OUR WEDDING WAS PERFECT!!! I can't help but smile when I think of that day- and it was all because of Phyllis! She even took pictures for us! We always knew we wanted an intimate ceremony and our initial thoughts were to get married at our local city hall, I am so thankful that I did that google search on that cold January day!

Amazing From the Get-Go!

I would highly recommend Weddings by Phyllis. She was amazing from the get go. She continually returned my calls and emails. She was very helpful! Phyllis is a sweet soul and sincere in every way. In addition, I was very pleased with the listed referrals on her website. I used JRobert for music and he was fabulous. I used Barbara for the calligrapher, and Marco Island Florist was amazing. Thank you so much, Phyllis, for making my parents 50-year renewal celebration a day they will never forget! Sincerely, Jules Keilitz
