A few Testimonials – and 5 Star Reviews from our beautiful couples!

WEDDINGWIRE.COM – 5 STARS – Rev. Aliene was GREAT to work with! She performed the wedding ceremony for one of my bridesmaids, and we decided to make her our officiant as well. We completed a TwoGether in Texas Pre-Marital course (fast, easy, and a little fun!), which saved us on our marriage license (we only ended up paying $11). It was a great ceremony, and she really took into account our personalities and made it a part of the ceremony. She also helped calm me down a bit in my freak out bridezilla moments!! Thanks Rev! – Malia & Josh

Your Wedding - Your Way - Home, Garden, ParkWe couldn’t have picked a better officiant for our wedding!! Rev tailored our vows & ceremony to us and it was PERFECT! She had our family & friends laughing & engaged and most of all she was so patient with me when I got choked up with my vows, she said, “Take a deep breath, it’s ok.” I felt at ease with her like she was an old friend! I highly recommend her if you are getting married and looking for an officiant! 🙂  …we received several compliments about how sweet our ceremony was!  – Jennifer & TJ

I found “Rev” online and I knew once I talked to her she was perfect to officiate our ceremony. She was so helpful during the rehearsal and during the ceremony she was so involved. It was emotional and she took her time instead of blowing through the words. She is amazing! – Amber & Jonathan

I found the Rev on line, and I am so glad that I did. She responded to my request on line right away, and when I spoke to her on the phone she was warm and friendly and helped me with all of my questions.

Aliene was wonderful! She was very helpful, professional, and caring. We were so excited to find someone who was eager to help us create a ceremony that reflected us as a couple. She played a major role in making our day beautiful. Thank you Aliene! – Katie & Andrew

Reverend Bodholdt was a joy to work with. She was very easy to talk to over the phone and made sure that both my now-husband and I understood that the wedding ceremony was about US and should be however we wanted it to be! She put together a beautiful ceremony that wasn’t too long (per our request). It was exactly what we were looking for! Due to the way the ceremony location was set up, we had to make some last minute changes to the ceremony, but Rev was able to do that on the fly, without missing a beat. Thank you so much, Rev!! – Carissa & Chad

Rev. Aliene Bodholdt is GREAT! Her personality and experience make her wonderful to work with. She provided excellent service, suggestions & direction with ceremony flexibility. She is a positive, outgoing, fun person. I highly recommend her. THANK YOU Aliene! – Barb & Jason

WEDDINGWIRE.COM – 5 STARS – When the supreme court made marriage equal for all Americans, it was two weeks before our 25th anniversary. So, naturally, we had to take advantage of the fact that we could get married and celebrate 25 years together – at the same time! We had a little under two weeks to get everything ready. We contacted Reverend Aliene and she was so very helpful. She told us what we needed to do to speed things along with the city, she sent us a wonderful service and worked with us on customizations to make it reflect our lives together. Most importantly, she conducted a wonderful, celebratory service that included the entire wedding party. It was a truly exceptional experience. – Ken & Keith

I found it very convenient that the Rev would come to the house. That way I didn’t have to go anywhere that day thereby greatly reducing my stress level. – Marie & Kurt

Worked with us on short notice. Fashioned an initial set of vows that were very lovely. However, we decided on a different direction, but Aliene took this in stride and used our vows with touching Amanda-Michaelenhancements that made the day truly memorable. She was prompt, professional and very accommodating. She gave us the ceremony we wanted and a wedding to remember fondly forever. – Jack & Michelle

She was superb! We have heard back from our wedding guests who stated it was one of the nicest weddings they have attended because the ceremony was so beautiful. Rev Bodholdt revised it 4 times and included all we requested and some of her own parts that made it very special. –  Nina & Pete

Rev. Aliene was awesome! I felt really comfortable talking with her over the phone and the sentiment was just echoed when I met her in person! She really made our day turn out great! All of our guests commented how wonderful a job she did and that she seemed like an old friend with how comfortable and easy going she was with everyone! – Theresa & Kenneth

Aliene was amazing! We had a very non-traditional wedding and Aliene was on board every step of the way. My fiance and I decided to get married, just the two of us, in front of our fire place. We found Aliene and she was willing to perform the ceremony without much instruction or notice. And I loved it! Her version (or you can pick your own) was very moving and inspiring. She knows just how to capture the spirit of love and commitment. – Ashley & Andrew

Rev. Bodholdt is very considerate and caring. If she could not take my call, she called me back within 30 minutes or lesOmar1s. She handles herself professionally and with confidence, which made me feel more at ease. She is very flexible and will help orchestrate the wedding of your dreams. The Rev. is a very eloquent speaker and will make your wedding very meaningful and beautiful. We are very happy with how she officiated our wedding. – Lucretia & Omar

My husband and I got married on 4/21. Our wedding started off kinda bumpy but once I arrived where the ceremony was being held our officiant, Rev. Aliene Bodholdt came over to me. She asked how I was doing and told me that things were ok. She told me to peek at the groom and remember why I was there and that was the only thing that mattered. She calmed my nerves but that doesn’t surprise me because she had been doing that for months. Every time I talked to her she always told me I was doing a great job with the wedding and to remember this is a happy time. Which always made me feel better because I had been going crazy for months. In total I am really glad I found her. I couldn’t of asked for better. She was supportive, helpful and very professional. She was also a good price. I hope this helps future brides. – Rachel & Juan

Rev: was exactly what we were looking for. We are so blessed she answered my email. Her words were perfect for our small wedding. She gave us a stress free feeling from the get go. I will definitely recommend her for any size of wedding. Thanks Rev 🙂 – Jocelyn & Bill

Our ceremony was very touching and heartfelt. We loved being able to review the sermon beforehand and actually kept it to use in a future vow renewal. Rev Bodholdt was very professional yet friendly and we are so thankful that we chose her! – Carol Ann & Christopher

“Rev” made this the most easy and fun experience! Everything was very organized, she was always available and just perfect! Thank you so much, Rev!!!! – Amanda & Rodney

Rev. Bodholdt was wonderful. We wanted a short, non-religious ceremony that incorporated my son, and everything was perfect. Thank you, Rev. Bodholdt. – Mary Ann & Tony

Rev. Aliene Bodholdt was wonderful! She was prompt, courteous, & professional when it came to preparing our ceremony. Her words were very sentimental and heartfelt. It turned out exactly the way we wanted it. We had a strict budget and found her prices to be extremely reasonable. We enjoyed working with Aliene and would recommend her to all. – Kris & Kasey

Rev. Bodholdt was amazing! She offered us our marriage counseling in our package. After gathering her information about us, she had our ceremony nailed, we didn’t need to change a thing. She arrived early on the day of and paired up with our photographer on key points which was so helpful for them and she made the entire ceremony go smoothly and kept us both calm (we were as nervous as could be standing up in front of everyone)! I would recommend hiring Aliene for your wedding she is great and she is so good at keeping in contact with you. – Amanda & Taylor

Our Wedding was a casual, family oriented affair. The Rev was wonderful about every aspect of it! Our service was meaningful, personalized and the Rev didn’t bat an eye with toddlers underfoot during every minute of it! Thank You Very Much for completing this special day with us so perfectly! – Elizabeth & Jacob

Our officiant “Rev” was awesome! We found her online and she responded within a few hours of me contacting her. She was very quick to respond to any questions I had and was willing to tailor the wedding ceremony to whatever we wanted. She sent us a copy of what she was planning to say for the ceremony ahead of time if we wanted to make any changes or additions. She was very prompt on her timing to the rehearsal and the wedding day. – Brittany & Matthew

“Rev B” was so nice and professional. We were so nervous and she made us both so comfortable. Everyone has been asking how we found her and have also been saying that the ceremony words she said were so beautiful and touching. Thank you so much for our perfect wedding! – Elizabeth & Roger

Aliene Bodholdt (the “Rev) was a great find for us. We had a private wedding just for two in a place two hours away from our home. We found her through online research. She answered the call immediately, was able to confirm the date for us, and emailed details over immediately. She was even able to offer us the Twogether in Texas marriage counseling so that we could save a bit on our license… especially since it is not offered to us locally. She was organized and made our day smooth sailing. The vows were modern and sweet and fit us perfectly (plus she sent them to us prior to our big day just in case changes were needed… which they weren’t). We would happily recommend Aliene Bodholdt to anyone and we’re happy to have found her. Thank you so much for your time and services! – Tara & Jeremy

Couldn’t have asked for better!! “The Rev” was great!! – Ange & Jimmy

Our ceremony was everything we wanted and more! – Rachel & Jacob

Rev. Bodholdt worked with us on short notice, knew the venue, drafted perfect words, and was basically a pleasure to work with. We told her what we wanted, and she delivered exactly that.

Rev was great. She is so easy to work with and has great intuition. Thank you for sharing our day! – Lana & Garyphoto(3)

“Rev” was great! She helped so much, easing a lot of my nerves and turning tears into laughter which is exactly what I wanted! The words she spoke were beautiful and touching.

Rev Bodholdt did an amazing job officiating at our wedding! She took the time to learn as much about us as possible ensuring that our service was unique and personal. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend her! I had several people ask for her info after attending our ceremony and I honestly can’t imagine our ceremony being more perfect than she made it. She even made us a book of our vows that we read together on our first anniversary. She definitely made our day special. Thanks again Rev 🙂 – Kristin & Aaron

Aliene is great! She let us take our wedding ceremony and make it ours. She made very sure that it was all about us and that was what was important to me. – Laura & David

Aliene was great! She was very responsive, was willing to meet with us before the wedding and was very flexible with the content of the ceremony. – Heather & Ryan

Aliene did a great job with our ceremony. We talked to her about the kind of ceremony we wanted to have and she sent us a draft of the ceremony and our vows that she put together. It was perfect! We made a few minor changes and added our own poetry readings. She was very receptive to our changes and made sure that everything was exactly how we wanted it. At the wedding she did a great job reading the poetry from the Shakespeare sonnet to the modern poem. Our ceremony was beautiful and meaningful. We had so many compliments on our vows after the ceremony. They were perfect for us and Aliene did a great job putting them together. – Terra & Jason

I enjoyed having a officiant that cares so much about the couple and wanting them to be happy. – Kenneth & Dawn

Rev Bodholdt was extremely personable and helpful during our first meeting. She made us feel right at home and provided us with encouraging and comforting words. She was accommodating with the set-up of our ceremony. She really took the time to get know us as individuals and as a couple. On our wedding day, she sent me a reminder text saying “only a couple of hours left”….I still have this text in my phone….it meant a lot for her to take the time out of her busy day to send me a reminder txt. During the ceremony, she was great. As a matter fact, she even got emotional during our ceremony… she added that personal touch! We invited both her and her husband to stay and party along with us. If you are looking for professionalism, dedication, assistance, honesty and someone to add some spunk to your ceremony, she is the perfect minister. Our wedding guests could not stop raving about her and still talk about her when we reminisce. – Carmen & Eric

Very helpful during and after the wedding. The service was exactly what we asked for. Exceptional all around! – Melissa & Ronald

We loved working with Rev Bodholdt! She did an amazing job the day of the wedding. She had an amazing personality and really helped us plan the ceremony style that we really wanted. – Grace & Richard

I cannot reccomend Reverend Bodholdt highly enough. She took on our wedding at the last minute, yet she still took the time to get to know us and to personalize our ceremony to be exactly what we were dreaming of. She was kind, supportive and professional, and even when the wedding ahead of ours ran late she still managed to zoom to our location, make it on time and pull off an amazing and lovely ceremony. We loved her and her husband so much we had them come to the reception. The “Rev” made our special day extra special, and everyone was so impressed with the beautiful ceremony. – Heather & Warren

Future brides in the DFW area, If you are looking for a reliable, affordable and professional officiant, I would without hesitation, recommend the services of DFW Ministers. Rev. Bodholdt was an absolute joy to work with. She was very responsive and answered any questions I had. Rev Bodholdt was very easy to talk to, and she made the process just as easy by sending me drafts and questions to approve and answer. In the beginning she asked for me to tell her a little about mine and my husbands (the fiance) “story”. From what little I told her about my husband and me, she produced a beautiful and original ceremony piece written just for my husband and I. As if she’d been there through our whole relationship. The ceremony, without a doubt, was the best part of our day. There wasn’t a dry eye in our crowd of family and friends and I know that it was because of the words she spoke in her presentation. Truly a blessing. I worried and stressed about a lot of things during the planning of my wedding, but business with Rev. Bodholdt was never one of them. – Martha & John

We were very unsure about what to do and where to begin. “Rev” worked with us and came up with the perfect ceremony for us and our family. She worked with our schedule and was very flexible. We appreciate everything and would highly recommend her! – Amanda & Matthew

My husband and I were more than impressed with Rev’s ceremony. She helped make our day so special and unique to fit our desires! I would highly recommend her. Thank you Rev! – Jacque & Kyle

I was just thinking about you the other day when I read our vows to my sister. They were the most precious words and we take them to heart. Even more so now that Zach is in Kuwait! The ring statement gives he and I comfort. I want to thank you for that! God will take care of us all. What you did for us will always be in our hearts! – Zach & Eelia

Jamie and Iris, finding the one person that you feel was made specifically for you after living your lives separately is one of God’s greatest miracles — and truly life’s greatest joy and blessing. – Jamie & Iris

The real act of marriage takes place in the heart, not in the ballroom or church or synagogue. It’s a choice you make – not just on your wedding day, but over and over again – and that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife. – Judy & Andrew

Choosing an officiate for that special day in your life is a very personal decision and, for most people, it is a bit frightening as you are choosing a stranger. I immediately “connected” with Aliene and felt completely comfortable knowing that she understood our special needs and would perform the ceremony we personally wanted. In an effort to continue to provide that comfort level, she continued to stay in touch while awaiting the actual date. On the date, she arrived in plenty of time to spend some one-on-one time with me and my daughter before greeting our guests and beginning the ceremony. On the date, she arrived in plenty of time to spend some one-on-one time with me and my daughter before greeting our guests and beginning the ceremony. She not only performed the ceremony with great emotion but make a special effort to connect with our guests, making them feel they were important participants and not just witnesses to our ceremony. I strongly recommend Aliene to anyone looking for that special touch. – Sandy & Lou

We just want you to know that you did such a beautiful job at our wedding, we are so thrilled about how everything turned out. Aliene helped bring our vision to life, the ceremony was beautiful! – Jessie & Charley

It was exactly what I wanted!! – Tanya & Terry

We were thrilled that Rev. Bodholdt was available to perform our wedding ceremony. My husband and I were new to the Dallas/Fort Worth area and did not belong to a specific church. When I came across DFWMinisters.com on The Knot I felt that this was a good choice. I did research other prospects, but kept coming back to DFWMinisters.com. Our ceremony was so perfect and made personal to who my husband and I are. At the end of my wedding planning that turned out to be a peaceful decision. Rev. Bodholdt was so easy to work with and in constant contact during the planning of the wedding. – Gail & Bennie

The best to work with! I came across “The Rev.” Aliene Bodholdt searching for local officiants for our wedding ceremony. I read a few hundred reviews before narrowing down the choices over a couple months. I enjoyed reviewing the photos and testimonies for The Rev. She contacted me the same evening that I submitted my interest. She spoke to me as if she knew me for years! She listened to what I for sure wanted included in the ceremony as well as gave me several suggestions. Perfect for the budget too! The Rev. gave me great advice regarding marriage, compromising, and preparation for the big day. The premarital advice and worksheets will forever be something we can look back on during our marriage. She was so quick toJanna-Paul-PinkLightImages-1 respond to emails when I had questions, about anything! She was a quick go to for help regarding the rest of the wedding planning. I even received a fantastic referral for a DJ from The Rev whom I also hired! They were both so perfect! The Rev has such a vast knowledge base that there was not a situation she didn’t have an answer for. She ensured that our rehearsal went very smoothly as well…and on time! On the day of the ceremony, she was the first to arrive. She kept me cool and calm. Never did I see her not smiling. She had written the most beautiful ceremony that captured all of the points we had talked about, including an honoring of the military for both sets of fathers (she kept it a surprise and we also handed the moms a single flower for their honoring), hand blessing, and even a sand ceremony incorporating our children symbolizing the blending of families. She had our guests laughing and didn’t miss a beat. The Rev was so much fun at the reception too! Shared some pictures in our photobooth, a wonderful meal, and great conversation. I am still getting compliments about the ceremony! Thank you Rev, you are truly a delight and a friend for life. – Janna & Paul

Our reverend was helpful, accommodating and easy! She gave us great advice for our wedding day (little bottles of water for the guests since it was outdoors, how to incorporate my daughter into the ceremony, etc.) She was kind, and took care to personalize our ceremony! – Terri & Mark

The minister I had did a great job! She fit everything to our needs and did so ahead of time. I really like that she didn’t wait til the last second to prepare her script. Everything went great! – Lauren & Rudy

WEDDINGWIRE.COM – 5 STARS – Wonderful Officiant & Perfect Ceremony! I would absolutely recommend “Rev” Aliene Bodholdt! Working with Rev was a wonderful experience, and our wedding was perfect. My husband, Matt, and I could not have been happier! I found Rev while searching for “alternative officiants” because we’re more spiritual than religious and also REALLY wanted the ceremony to be quite personalized. Upon our first phone conversation, I knew Rev would be perfect. Rev was very perceptive/intuitive about our personalities, and she used that to write the most beautiful ceremony. She was funny, laid back, and encouraged our participation and editing of the ceremony to make it truly about us. Rev was also such a fun, pleasant Krys-Matt-Melissa Claire Photographypersonality overall. Perhaps the most beautiful part of all was that she seemed touched by the vows we had written – she was instantly family.  Rev was very responsive, timely, and attentive. She offered excellent insight into the process, and helped us keep nerves calm on the day of. The premarital lessons she provided were also an amazing addition to the experience. It was so helpful to consider and discuss such a variety of important topics with Matt long before the wedding. We loved the date nights we made of it! Thank you, Rev!!! – Krys & Matt

Everyone really enjoyed the wedding and we appreciated the personal ceremony and found it touching and enjoyable, nothing like the same old boring weddings we’ve all been to! – Shelly & Jim

On the date, she arrived in plenty of time to spend some one-on-one time with me and my daughter before greeting our guests and beginning the ceremony. She not only performed the ceremony with great emotion but made a special effort to connect with our guests, making them feel they were important participants and not just witnesses to our ceremony. I strongly recommend Aliene to anyone looking for that special touch. –  Sandy & Lou

Thank you for such a beautiful ceremony! I couldn’t have imagined it any other way! – Julie & Donnie

WEDDINGWIRE.COM – 5 STARS – Rev Aliene Bodholdt was so easy to work with from the very beginning! She helped us through the process of getting our marriage license, she also told us about the premarital counseling course that the state of Texas offers, which saved us around $60! We did a wine box unity ceremony and she even tried to help us look for a wine box for it. She definitely went above and beyond what I thought an officiant is normally supposed to do. She asked us very detailed questions about us and our relationship so that she can make the perfect ceremony for us. About a month before the wedding, she emailed me exactly what she was going to say so that there wouldn’t be any surprises and it was just beautiful! On the day of the wedding, she arrived early, and explained to my now husband and I exactly what was going to happen during the ceremony and gave us a lot of cues throughout as so what we were supposed to do. When it came to our first kiss as husband and wife, she even moved out of the way for the picture because she said that is one picture that she does not need to be in. So now we have our first kiss as just ours, just us in that moment. I didn’t think it was a big deal at the time but some members of my wedding party commented on how thoughtful that was. The Rev comes highly recommended by me 🙂 – Heidi & Carlos

THEKNOT.COM – 5 STARS – Aliene was everything we could have hoped for in an officiant. Not only was she flexible, but patient and concerned that we have things exactly as we wanted them. We had the option to review and revise the vows to make them more personal, which was amazing; and her delivery of the vows was heartfelt and sincere. Not once did either of us feel like she was some stranger who just ‘showed up’ to do her job and get out of there. She was patient and kind with our family (and with the fact there was 3x more of them than we expected!), and worked with us to ensure everything went off without a hitch. I highly, highly recommend ‘The Rev’ to anyone who is looking for a down-to-earth, professional, and personal officiant. Four thumbs up from these gals!!!… – Jeni & Melissa

THANK YOU for a lovely ceremony!  Nicholas and I were absolutely delighted with the ceremony and felt it truly was the “essence of us.”Every one of our guests was completely transfixed with your words and thank you for making our day so terrific! We have consistently spoke about the ceremony and how much each moment of it meant to us.  THANK YOU for making our special day possible! – Melissa & Nicholas

Thank you so much! You made our ceremony one to remember. Any couple would be so lucky to have you as their officiant. – Joy & Justin

There are no words to say thank you enough for doing such a beautiful ceremony for us. Everything was all we imagined and then some! Thank you, again and again for marrying us and making our special day all we hoped it would be. – Belinda & Sean

WEDDINGWIRE.COM – 5 STARS – My husband and I worked with Reverend Aliene Bodholdt for officiating our wedding.

WEDDINGWIRE.COM – 5 STARS – Aliene was absolutely wonderful and a true pleasure to work with when it came to wedding planning.

We will definitely be contacting her again when we have our large ceremony in a few years!! – Rebecca & Brooke

WEDDINGWIRE.COM – 5 STARS – Rev was great to work with and we got lots of positive comments about how amazing she was. I can’t explain the gratitude we feel for not only her services, but how she connected with each of us. – April & Taylor

The Rev gave us the wedding we dreamed of. Her service was personal, heartfelt and completely ‘us’. She even stood outside in a botanical garden with us in the rain! She was happy to talk through all aspects of the ceremony and gave us huge creative input into its content – the final draft was just perfect because she does a huge amount of research into what matters to you as a couple. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone! – Vicki & Scott

WEDDINGWIRE.COM – 5 STARS – We had the pleasure of having Aliene Bodholdt from DFW Ministries officiate our wedding, I can’t say enough positive things about her professionalism and the service she provided the day of our wedding. She is so kind and handles you like you are her only client. She likes what she does and it shows in her service. Everyone raved about how lovely our service was and that was all on Aliene. She also dresses professionally which was a plus for pictures. I will recommend her in the future to anyone who is looking for an ordained minster to officiate their wedding. We also enjoyed the class she has you take, which also gives you a discount when you file for your wedding license. Total PLUS! I just wanted to personally thank you for being so professional and timely. You looked great, and you made our ceremony so lovely. Thank you for being apart of our special day as we will never forget how wonderful it was. THANK YOU, I hope I have the opportunity to refer your services in the future. – Laura & Nathan

WEDDINGWIRE.COM – 5 STARS – Aliene is absolutely fantastic!! Her replies are always prompt, and she is easy to talk with. She is knowledgeable and informative. She was always able to answer any question I threw her way. My husband and I wanted a secular ceremony, and Aliene was able to provide exactly what we wanted. A couple months before the wedding, I sent Aliene an email with readings, vows, and a mini-ceremony idea. That same day, she sent me a draft of the ceremony! On the wedding day, she arrived early and went over the ceremony with us. She did an excellent job officiating and took care of the marriage license. We did not have to worry about anything. I highly recommend using Aliene!!- Laurie & Michael

WEDDINGWIRE.COM – 5 STARS – The Rev put us at ease right away and things went so well. Fun, conversation and pic times were all a part of our event. This was such a special time and we will always treasure this ceremony. A big “thank you” to Rev. Aliene Bodholdt, for providing us with the perfect words. We appreciate you! Thanks again – John & L.J.

WEDDINGWIRE.COM – 5 STARS – “Rev”, as she allowed us to call her, was fantastic! Although the actual wedding day was the first time we met her face-to-face, the prior phone and e-mail planning conversations made the day of run very smoothly. She showed up early, as she mentions in her e-mails and had time swinging by to talk to both my husband and I separately before the event. Rev customized our vows to however we wanted it to be and that made both of us feel very comfortable. Her pre-marital course was also a nice complimentary perk! She’s very knowledgeable in all things about obtaining your marriage license and gave us some advice on which county to go to and when. She’s very professional, courteous, yet genuine and funny!- Shirley & Alex

Thank you Rev (Aliene Bodholdt) and thank you agin for performing a beautiful ceremony for us 3 years ago….you made sure it was just as we wanted it to be… – Micah & Jim


  1. Darlene & Dale Anderson says:

    Dale and I wanted simple, non-traditional, and something special just for us. Ailene delivered in spades. We were married in our backyard with our horse, Cowboy, as ring bearer. Ailene was even sweet enough to remind me (and Dale) that emotions were high and it was just fine that I laughed through most of the ceremony. It was perfect. – Darlene & Dale (Cowboy too)
