Testimonials

    After seeing Shelly beautifully and articulately officiate a dear friend's wedding, she was the first (and only) officiant we reached out to when planning our wedding. Luckily for us, she was available on our day. Throughout the process she caringly got to know us via a phone interview, email and her well thought through couples questionnaire before writing a custom ceremony just for us. She allowed us to read through what she'd wrote and would have incorporated any edits or suggestions we had. The draft she sent via email was quite nearly perfect and we were both in tears reading it on our phones. Having attended, photographed and filmed dozens of weddings, I've come to realize the officiant is one of the most important pieces of the wedding puzzle. Ceremonies are all too often stymied by an unsure officiant tripping over their words. This wasn't a worry of ours with Shelly on our team. All you have to do is get your marriage license and she takes care of the rest!  -Nicole & Mitch
        We were beginning to lose hope that we would find not only an officiant to perform our marriage ceremony but someone who would make such an important day feel special.
Shelly not only took the time to get to know us, she guided us in such a way that helped us remember why this day was so important and all the reasons why we wanted to share our lives together. She felt like someone near and dear by the day of our wedding and the ceremony didn't leave a dry eye in the house : ) Shelly was a beautiful part of our journey and performed a touching ceremony!

      We felt incredibly special, as if we were the only ones in the world getting married. I highly recommend her! She's great!  -Jennifer & Billy
      Shelly lead an excellent ceremony at our wedding. Due to an illness in the family, the wedding was planned in just three weeks. Shelly was quick and easy to communicate with and quick to get things done on her end. We didn't even get a chance to meet before the wedding but Shelly provided us with a questionnaire which she used to write a wonderful ceremony. I heard many positive comments from my guests about the ceremony.
Because the wedding planning was so rushed, I was worried so many things would go wrong. But instead so many things went great and Shelly's service was one of them. I am very grateful and I can't thank her enough.
