Made our made magic

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Jerri. I am still in awe 10 months later at the compliments our guest gave about our ceremony. It was absolutely beautiful and her energy and way of speaking left our guests in awe. So many guests have said we had the most beautiful ceremony they had ever seen. We were at The Elks at Bass Rocks which was a beautiful setting for a beautiful service. We even had a mix up at the post office with our marriage license and Jerri drove down from somewhere way up north to straighten it out.

We were so happy to have Jerrie marry us! She was incredibly personable, accommodating, and easy to work with. Jerrie was responsive via email and Skype throughout the months leading up to our ceremony. She also provided us with a fantastic packet full of suggestions and ideas that ultimately helped us shape our dream wedding ceremony. The day of was beyond perfect - several guests said it was one of the best wedding ceremonies they had been to! Would highly recommend Jerrie!

Our day was so special!

One of the best decisions I made for our wedding was hiring Rev. Jerrie Hildebrand. She made our day so special and beautiful. I have had so many people come up to me to say how beautiful the ceremony was, one of the most beautiful they had ever been to!! Working with Jerrie made everything seem so easy, she is kind and caring, patient and intuitive. I am so grateful I had Jerrie marry my husband and I! I wouldn't have had it any other way!
