Cindy is a blessing. Her demeanor is calm, fun, personable, professional – a mix of all things needed to make your wedding (or I can imagine, any event) easy! From the moment my fiancé and I met with her, we felt comfortable. She understood what we were looking for and was flexible as well as directive. She listed to us and offered us guidance when we didn’t know what we were doing in planning the ceremony. She is very balanced in her approach to both officiating and coordinating. On the day of the wedding, I didn’t need to ask her to do anything, because she understood what we needed and when. She knew who to talk to and was quick thinking, I rarely had to be involved with the behind the scenes – and I’m sure that the bit that I was involved with I could have handed to her if I wanted to. Her ceremony suggestions were also beautiful, well written, and perfect for us – she took the time to figure out who we were as a couple. I highly recommend Cindy.

Cindy is a LIFE saver!!! My now husband and I were in NEED of a officiant a week before our wedding. Due to the officiant we had... backed out last minute. Of course at this point, we went into panic mode. And after plenty of candidates, she was the best fit for us. She was very professional, on top of things and the best part... budget friendly. Especially in comparison to others in her field!! I have no clue what other officiants include in their prices. But, I would imagine... they would give the same service. That any other bride and groom would want...to be married. However, one would think a honeymoon was included in some of the prices. Anywho, she gave us a arrival time of 15-20 minutes prior to the ceremony. But, she was actually early *thumbs up* And what seems to have been the HOTTEST day of a NYC summer? She was patient, welcoming and all smiles with our guests. Our ceremony was on the Red TKTS Stairs in Times Square. We all know the crowd of tourists and on lookers can become very over bearing. However, she kept everything under control, private and intimate. My husband and I are not religious.. but, my(the bride) family is. And she did a great job with respecting our wishes. As well as adding a little something to keep them happy and off my back. lol. Following the ceremony, Cindy made sure that our Marriage License made it to the Bureau safe and sound. As we went off to enjoy the rest of our day. Our family and friends gave us so many compliments on Cindy and her delivery (in that hot sun) on bringing us into husband and wife! And for her... we are VERY grateful!!

The script that you wrote for us was extremely beautiful and heartwarming. I almost cried when I read it for the first time. It truly touched me. I also appreciate your quick responses whenever I reached out and your punctuality on the day of the ceremony. Thanks again for all of your help.

​Marie & Wade


Thank you so much for being apart of my wedding. You are the best. I would recommend you and your company to anyone. Thank you again. Thumbs up!

Cindy made sure our ceremony went absolutely flawlessly. She exchanged countless emails with my now-wife during the months leading up to our wedding and as a result we had a wonderful wedding that was very much our own. All of our guests really enjoyed the ceremony as they keep on telling us that it was the best one they ever attended – very personal and memorable, with lots of interwoven symbolism that spoke of "us." My wife and I highly recommend Cindy as her knowledge, willingness to share, and the desire to leave us with a priceless memory meant that we not only had an officiant, but a partner in shaping our most memorable day together.

Cindy was amazing! She listened to everything we asked for in our ceremony and provided the appropriate text. She incorporated our edits with no problem. As a Mexican-American same-sex couple, a civil secular marriage was extremely important to us, but we also wanted to incorporate spiritual dynamics and Mexican traditions to our ceremony. She did this perfectly. She also did an amazing job of making the ceremony bilingual English/Spanish without repeating text in both languages, as we requested. Her charismatic personality and positive energy truly made her the perfect fit and she made our wedding memorable. We strongly recommend Cindy!

Cindy is very sweet and very professional. She aided my partner and I and answered all of our questions immediately. She adjusted to a last minute time change which was absolutely amazing. We would recommend her to anyone getting married and wanting a peaceful, loving person to perform their ceremony. She is amazing.

Cindy was absolutely amazing, professional and flexible. Our wedding was a destination wedding so it was important that we had someone who was flexible and reliable with communication. She started by sending a few options for us to read for the ceremony. It was easy to pick the one right for us because I cryed it was so beautiful. Next we spoke over the phone to go over everything. We did not even have the venue until the day before our wedding and Cindy was so calm. Finally our wedding day she was on time, prepared and wonderful. We got married at The Terrace Club over looking Rockefeller Center. I would highly recommend Cindy to anyone and especialy if you are doing a destination wedding. She made our day even more special!

I have no words no describe our experience working with Cindy C Blakis, everything was just perfect and we couldn't ask for anything more, she transformed our random ideas into something tangible with many great details and such great taste. She is a sophisticated, proffesional and easygoing woman that once you meet her, you'll know for sure that she is the right person for your wedding planning and officiating the ceremony. Thanks you so much Cindy!

Alexander & Rolando


Planning a wedding is always stressful. Planning a wedding in less than a month is even more stressful. Finding Cindy took the stress out of the whole process. The amount of favorable reviews on her page made me feel confident that she was the right choice. That decision was reaffirmed when I told her what I was looking for and read her script. IT WAS SPOT ON!!! The decision to use Cindy was solidified the day of our ceremony. She was punctual, her voice was calming and reassuring, and she performed a beautiful ceremony. I could not be more pleased. And my new husband has already decided that we will use her services again when we reaffirm our commitment in a few years. Thank you again, Cindy, for everything!

​Tiffini  & Westley


We truly loved having Cindy be apart of our wedding day. She is very calming and knowlegable and having her expertise on hand was very helpful. My family loved how personable the ceremony was and how she incorporated my catholic religion into the ceremony was much appreciated. I was very nervous that my catholic family was not going to be pleased and they were beyond pleased. Everyone enjoyed the personal ceremony and Cindy pronounced every word clearly and with meaning. Leading up to the wedding and tailoring our ceremony was stress free with Cindy. She was very easy to work with. We simply loved working with her and having her apart of our special day.

​Nicole & Mario


Cindy was excellent , she was caring made sure my wedding was the way I wanted it before she performed as the officiant. I was so grateful for her and the wonderful service she provided . I knew for only a couple of hours but the way she made me feel felt like I knew her all my life. Thank you Cindy once again.

Iraida & Andre


Mrs.Blakis was great to me and my husband from day one, always responded and was always very helpful.We were very new to this process and she walked us through step by step and made getting married so much easier. VERY AFFORDABLE AND PROFESSIONAL, ON TIME AND RESPONSIBLE.

​Ebony & Aqeel


Cindy was amazing and I am so glad I chose her to be our officiant for our ceremony. I am so glad that our wedding was as awesome as it was. She helped us even with the trip to New York and New Jersey. Thanks so much for everything and you were awesome. 

​Melissa  & Laura  


We could not have been more happy to have Cindy as our officiant for our wedding. She was professional, always responded in a timely fashion, sincere, and very patient. She worked with us to put together the perfect ceremony. She offered suggestions, which really helped to make the event go as smooth as possible. She also wrote her own beautiful piece which really touched our hearts. Just having gotten married herself, she can offer valuable insight in to your special day. She is genuinely a nice person and will do everything she can to make you happy with her services. I would recommend Happily Ever Blissful to any friend or family member. Thank you so much Cindy!

Christina  & Yamile
