I Found A Gem For A Life Time

I want to give a huge shout-out! A huge praise, to Michael and Lorraine, for doing such an amazing job on marrying us on our unforgettable wedding day! Not only that, but they were also our pre-marital counselors. So they had the chance to get personal with us and it felt like family.

They are is more than just officiants. It’s their innate gift! They have a true passion and it is exemplified in their work! 🥰

But wait there’s more! They had THE UPMOST AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE!
They listened took notes and absolutely helped Ted and I on areas that we lacked. They were attentive, kind, patient, easy, and fun to be around. They gave great advice on things that just helped in for a strong marriage and a stress free wedding day . 🤩

It felt like divinity finding them randomly on The Wire and I couldn’t have been more grateful! For a week straight the feedback I’ve been hearing about my wedding was how absolutely amazing it was to see a union give us away. 🤗

Now! To all my future brides and Grooms who have not booked officiants yet and you’re in the ATL area please run and book them ASAP! They will elevate your wedding and I promise you, you will NOT be disappointed 😉 also, be sure to check out their Divorce Is Not An Option Book and Class!

Great experience!

We had a great experience with The Forrester’s! They facilitated our premarital counseling sessions as well as officiated our wedding ceremony. We loved having both of them to lean on to prepare for marriage and being able to seek counsel from them as husband and wife who have been married for many years. They did an amazing job officiating our ceremony and we can’t thank them enough for being a major part of our special day!
