Patt Was Amazing!
We couldnt have asked for a better officiant for our wedding. Patt is warm and caring. The service she put together was very personalized and even though we met Patt recently, we felt that she knew us for ages and deeply understood who we are,. Thanks to Patt we had a beautiful ceremony that we will never forget!!!Sent on 11/14/2018

Patt is wonderful woman. Her kind heart filled the air at our wedding. She really did her homework and took the time to go back and forth with me to personalize our ceremony sermon so that it was truly special. If marriage weren’t permanent I’d use her again in a heart beat. Thanks again for everything Patt.Sent on 08/01/2017
A Joyful Ceremony's reply:Thank you, Kara, for your kind words! It was such an honor to be with you and Ryan on your very special day. You are a beautiful couple both inside and out, and I know you will have many happy years together. Sorry I missed The Hustle; I know it was memorable! Please give my love to your parents; they were so very kind and gracious. And give Nixon a kiss for us!
