    Helene was the officiant at our recent NOLA wedding at the Chateau Lemoyne. It was perfect!
    We are from Pennsylvania, and working via email with Helene was perfect and stress-free.
    The wording she used for the ceremony was moving and right on point for the crowd and us, as a couple.
    We met right before the ceremony and the ceremony went off without a hitch! Such a perfect day!

    Helene was such a thoughtful officiant. She was easy to meet with both via Skype and in person. My husband is from another country and we live abroad, and she had great ideas of how to incorporate both of our cultures and traditions into the ceremony. As a non-religious couple with religious family, we were a bit worried about how to create a ceremony that was both meaningful and authentic to us, but that would be recognizable and meaningful to our families. Helene did this gracefully and thoughtfully. I could not recommend her enough.
