    Stress-free ceremony!

    Gwen made our ceremony SO easy. She constantly kept in touch with us, and was very understanding to any changes or add-ins I needed. She also sent a very detailed copy of how the entire ceremony would happen and what would be said, which is extremely helpful, it especially came in handy while we were doing our rehearsal. She also allowed you to personalize it to make sure it is exactly what you want. I appreciated her services! 10/10 would recommend!
