One of my first weddings was between a Muslim and a Fundamentalist Christian. I wed many International couples...thank goodness for Skype.

Lately, I've been creating a lot of renewal of vows ceremonies for couples whose stories encompass a fascinating history of many years together."

Every couple deserves a ceremony that will touch the heart and they can remember with pride for the rest of their lives."

Rev. Peluso was a great officiant during the wedding. She was very professional throughout the entire experience. Rev Peluso asked for key details and reading for the ceremony and filled the rest of the ceremony with solid wording. She is very hands on and anybody who wants to be walked through there ceremony should hire her.Sent on 07/20/2015
