    Wonderful officiant!

    We cannot thank Irene enough for her role as officiant at our wedding. She has a gracious, welcoming presence, wrote a beautiful ceremony, and included special requests into our ceremony---from suggested readings (which was a bit challenging as we did not want one that sounded too "Hallmark-like")---to the invitation to hug your neighbor during the ceremony---since this was the first time that our families were meeting. We recommend her highly and feel so lucky she was available to perform our ceremony. Thank you, Irene!

    Hi Kim, What a wonderful day! It was truly a memorable wedding-from the perfect weather, to the delightful venue and of course the love exchanged between you and Steve. I enjoyed getting to know you, writing your ceremony and sharing resources. Wishing you much happiness in the years ahead. Will be sending your keepsake this week. Warmest Regards, Irene

    Excellent officiant!

    Irene was a wonderful officiant for our secular wedding. She had a wealth of suggested rituals and readings and got to know us through an extensive survey. She wrote a beautiful ceremony and helped us rehearse all the little details from walking down the aisle to practicing putting rings on. Our guests really enjoyed her balance of grace and humor!

    Hi Yuan and Steve, Thanks so much for your thoughtful words. Your wedding was a joyful celebration of your love. I appreciate being part of your story and lives at this precious time. I had several delightful interchanges with your father, Steve's mother and your long time friend, Praneetha. I'll be sending your keepsake ceremony later this week.

    Everything we could have wanted and more!

    Words can’t express how THANKFUL we were to have Irene and the beyond amazing job she did on our wedding day. Every single little touch and detail made it magical and it was because of the beautiful ceremony. She was always available to answer all our questions, and full of ideas for our ceremony which made it personal to us as a couple. Orlando, Ophelia and I thank her from the bottom of our hearts ❤️❤️.
