    Gwen to the Rescue!

    We met Gwen a few weeks before our wedding when our original officiant had to cancel last minute due to unforeseen circumstances. We frantically looked up websites and noticed Gwen's beautiful smile! We quickly contacted her and within hours she responded! We set up an appointment to meet her and when we did we knew right away we wanted her to do our wedding. She made us feel welcomed, relaxed and in control of our own ceremony with providing examples and guides to help us along the way.

    She was ready! She had everything in place and clear instructions, she kept us in constance communication and was so easy to work with.

    When it was all said and done Gwen designed a beautiful ceremony and customized it to our need and our guest. She did an amazing job and at an affordable price!

    If you're looking for someone to get you hitched, then Gwen is the officiant for you! You won't regret it! :-)

    Gwen was wonderful! She came on very short notice, got to know us as a couple and wrote the perfect ceremony.
