What My Customers Are Saying

"We booked with Francesca to perform our ceremony for an Elopement. My fiance & I went into it thinking we just wanted it to be quick and to the point as we are planning a large wedding in the future so we didn't need this to be a "special" moment. But the minute Francesca had us hold hands and began to read the words to perform the ceremony, my fiance and I realized how special and intimate this moment was. I am very grateful for the experience she created for us. This was very last minute and she quickly got everything together and made sure she could meet us in the short amount of time we provided her. It was quick and simple, but romantic for us. She is very professional and easy to work with! thank you so much Francesca!"

"I cannot say enough good things about Southern Charm Officiant. This is who you will contact when booking, but when your wedding or elopement is over you will know her as Francesca. You meet as strangers but leave as friends. She is absolutely amazing at what she does. You will not find someone as sweet and as accommodating as she is. She helped plan an elopement (Bride&Groom only) from hours away and made it absolutely perfect. She not only was ever so kind to marry us last second when our other officiant backed out, but she also went as far as being our photographer and hair/make up artist. She was willing to meet at our resort, help us get dressed and drove back out to the beach to marry us. The weather was not accommodating but that did not scare her away. In fact she threw her shoes off (puddles of water walking to the beach) and said, "Come on, lets go get you married" Francesca is definitely the officiant for you if you want a stress free wedding/elopement."

"I have no words, literally to amount to the recognition Fran deserves. We were in last minute need of an officiant and she was truly an answered prayer. We instantly connected and everything felt so natural. Her words of affirmation had both the bride and the groom so emotional yet relaxed. Our big day was truly a dream 🤍"

"Southern Charm Officiant did an amazing job on our special day! Francesca did a great job with a late notice! I decided to go with Southern Charm just days before the ceremony and she ensured we made the right choice!"

My new husband and I eloped and we called around all day and ran around all day to try and make our day happen and this lady saved the day and she did amazing pictures for us they are absolutely beautiful I couldn't have asked for a better outcome of our special day im so happy you were our officiant thank you so much ❤️ beautiful venue choices as well ❤️

Francesea St. John is absolutely the best!! She is so sweet, professional, well spoken, and a blessing! I'm so thankful we found her, and she performed the most beautiful wedding ceremony for my daughter! She has become not only a friend, but also part of our family! I can't say enough great things about Francesca!!!

Francesca is not only great at officiating your event, she is very caring and deeply invested in the couple. She takes the time to get to know you and can adjust to meet your individual needs or concerns. She is well spoken and has a way of taking any nervousness away during the ceremony. Everyone present at our ceremony had nothing but compliments about her. We invited her to stay for the meal and she took the time to get to know us and our guests. She is the best! Highly recommend Her and Southern Charm Officiant for your event! Thanks again for a truly memorable Day!

Francesca was absolutely amazing. My fiancé and I ended up having to rush the process of getting married in less than 3 days, and originally she wasn’t going to be able to do it until the following Wednesday, but was able to squeeze us in Saturday when meant we were on a time crunch. We were both so nervous but she made the process so easy and understandable, and the pictures were all absolutely gorgeous. Not to mention, she didn’t judge at all when we opted to have my fiancé (now husband) and his best friend and witness do a few goofy pictures together. It was a small day but ended up being so very special thanks to Francesca. We will definitely be using her services again for other things, and I recommend her very highly. Thank you very much, Francesca, from the Elswicks ❤️

Francesca did an absolutely amazing job for our elopement. She was very accommodating, officiating our ceremony in a cemetery, and made the day very special for us despite it being a small ceremony. Thank you so much for helping us make our day memorable!

Francesca was so amazing to work with from beginning to end. She replied promptly to any questions we had prior to booking and was so professional and genuine throughout the whole process. We booked her for an intimate elopement on Driftwood beach and I couldn’t imagine it going any better. She also stayed after to assist in our posing for pictures on her own free will which was so kind. My wife and I would 100% recommend her work.

My husband and I decided we wanted to elope in Savannah and we had initially thought we would just do a courthouse wedding, but after researching learned Chatham no longer did in court ceremonies. So in a rush i was researching officiants for elopements, and stumbled across Francesca’s website. She responded in a time efficient manner, offered a reasonable price for the ceremony, and also offered photography! For the price, we paid and the quality we received we couldn’t be more grateful. If you’re looking for inexpensive but high quality services, keep her in mind. She made us feel so comfortable and was so relatable right off the bat. She was professional and had great ideas for photos, and worked with us to get the shots we wanted. She personalized our ceremony and made it such a beautiful day! We’re so thankful to have found her and had her apart of our day and we definitely made a friend from the experience too! Thank you Francesca!

When trying to decide on an officiant for our ceremony, my husband and I were both at a loss for what to do. Neither of us is religious, and we did not have any close friends or family members that would have been able to do the ceremony for us. Enter Francesca, the service was extremely easy and straightforward to book. Even if you are looking for more traditional services, I would not hesitate to reach out to her and work together to plan the perfect ceremony for your wedding. Francesca did an amazing job on our wedding day and was a very settling presence to help calm any pre-wedding jitters. She was also incredibly helpful with the wedding license and application for the certificates, and she provided a beautiful transcript of our ceremony as a keepsake. If you are in need of an officiant, Southern Charm Officiant is the place to look!

My husband and I decided at the last minute to elope the next day and Francesca was fully on board with us. She provided suggestions on where to hold the ceremony, she gave us a rundown of it, and we had the option of a basic or more extensive service. The morning of, we were faced with a couple obstacles that threw our whole plan off. We were in such a rush to be at the ceremony on time and still ended up 35 minutes late. Francesca was compassionate and courteous through and through and relieved a ton of the stress we were feeling. So glad we went with her business.

We had the best experience with Southern Charm! She made us feel very comfortable. She took some absolutely awesome pictures and made the entire experience fun and enjoyable. I would highly recommend!

Francesca is THEEEE best! She was so super sweet, personable, & accommodating and like I told her on our wedding day, she is/was heaven sent. Everything that she did for us was amazing (ceremony, photography, and bouquet/boutonnière), and I don’t think we could have found anyone better if we tried. We will be doing a big shindig/wedding in a few years, and we will 100% be going with her again when that time comes.

If you on the fence about working with her, get off of it and reach out to her immediately! It will definitely be one of the best decisions you make for your day

We love her and her work!!! She is so sweet and talented. She made our day feel so special, recommended a great location and was just a great experience overall. Will definitely be booking in the future!!! Can’t wait for Southern charm to capture our next event

Francesca wrote beautiful vows for us, and made our wedding ceremony perfect. She was able to accommodate us with short notice, for which we are grateful. We took advantage of her photography package, and are super pleased with our wedding photos! Thank you so much Francesca!

Southern charm officiant & photography was the best, Francesca was amazing and everything came out beautiful. We were both nervous but she made us feel super comfortable, I also had great communication since booking with her up until the elopement everything was AMAZING, I’m glad we chose Francesca and will totally recommend her to anyone who is looking for an officiant and photography.

I absolutely love Francesca, she went above and beyond for our wedding day. I couldn't of picked a better officiant to marry us. She is truly amazing at what she does, and I couldn't recommend her more than enough.

She truly does put all of her heart into her business. I'm so grateful that I booked her.

Francesca is amazing! She did our engagement photos. Her prices are very reasonable and communication is great. We will recommend anyone who is looking for photo's or wedding in the area. Thanks!
