A Wonderful Person and Officiant
Gwen was our officiant for our January 2021 wedding. We first met her during our initial consultation and we were super impressed by her friendliness, kind voice, and professionalism. We chose to work with Gwen and she wrote our ceremony to our style. Her final product synced with our wedding perfectly! Many of our guests commented on what a great job she did. Gwen made us laugh, cry, and feel the love that everyone in the room shared. It was beautiful. I highly recommend Gwen as your wedding officiant.Sent on 02/07/2021

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!Sent on 07/27/2020
