Dagondon Wedding 2018!
Our experimented with Irma was fabulous! We emailed a bit and once we had a phone date with her we knew we made the right choice. She is fun, professional, knowledgeable & nailed our ceremony. I have even seen video footage of the ceremony & it was seamless, total perfection. Thank you Irma! What a pleasure to work with you.Sent on 11/26/2018

I was so nervous to find an officiant that we would feel comfortable working with, especially since neither my now husband nor myself are particularly religious. From the moment I started communicating with Reverend Irma, all of those nerves were gone. She was prompt to respond to my initial email, which was automatically a good sign. She was also a joy to work with - fun, focused, thorough, and made the experience as personalized and stress-free as possible. I so enjoyed working with her, I can't wait for her to help us renew our vows! (but actually I can wait...planning all that is a ton of work. lol) THANK YOU IRMA FOR MAKING OUR DAY SO SPECIAL AND "US." :)Sent on 03/07/2018
