Nanette is one of the most heartfelt wedding officiants that you will ever encounter! Her ceremonies are beautiful, eloquent, and so genuine! I am truly honored every single time I get to work with her and I know her clients feel the same! I highly recommend her!!!
Nanette is the perfect addition to a wedding ceremony! Her infectious smile, and wonderful attitude, are sure to provide brides and grooms with the ceremony of their dreams. Not only that, but more importantly, you'll love to hear her speak. I love it when it is obvious that the officiant really cares about the bride and groom.
Stop right here! Nanette is the best around. If you want a ceremony that reflects YOU, and isn't a "fill your name in here" type of ceremony, call her now. We witness ceremonies weekly, and Nanette's is different EVERY TIME. How refreshing!
