    Creative and Caring

    AC was engaging from the beginning. During our first conversation she asked great questions to get to know us better. The first draft incorporated many of our interests and she suggested some unique ideas to make the service more personal. Instead of sharing a cup of wine, we exchanged beer steins and sips, because we love craft beer. We had already exchanged rings, so she did a blessing on our hands instead. Our family members were warmly included and AC even added some humor by using the opening from "The Princess Bride", it was great! We'd highly recommend her.

    Thank you so much Jeff! It was great to work with you two. You are so well suited to each other and all of your family members and friends are too. I know you all have a great future in front of you.

    Highly Recommend

    A.C. was awesome! She was so responsive and professional. She helped make something that is seemingly complicated so easy and simple. She put the ceremony together as if she knew us for year. We received so many compliments about how great the ceremony was and that is a direct connection to A.C and her detailed, well planned approach. We are very happy with our decision.

    Capital Ceremonies's reply:

    Thank you so much Dan & Jenn. It was such a pleasure to work with you and to meet all your wonderful family members & friends. The location was also quite beautiful. Thank you for making me part of your day!

    Everything we wanted and more

    Working with A.C. was exactly what we envisioned for our wedding. My husband and I wanted a non-religious ceremony and we really appreciated that A.C. could pull ideas and readings from so many philosophies and literary works. Our first meeting with A.C. involved sitting down and getting to know each other so we were all on the same page. From there she provided a big selection of ceremony language options for us to choose from. Once we outlined the elements of the ceremony we wanted it was really easy to edit the drafts until it was exactly what we were after. She also reviewed our vows and took care of mailing in our marriage certificate. A.C. was so easy to work with and was patient with all our questions and emails!

    Capital Ceremonies's reply:

    Thank you so much Shanna & David. I really enjoyed the whole process and thank YOU for being so patient with my frustrations with Google Docs. I learned so much from you on this. I also loved the Chuppa your uncle had made for your family weddings. Such a great tradition.
