Beautiful Ceremony

Penelope was so helpful and gave us a beautiful wedding ceremony. She let us choose from different ceremony wordings and let us add in our own vows. She took charge for us at the rehearsal when weren’t sure what to do and was so helpful at the ceremony. She even went and asked people to move out of the background before our beach wedding. She was so sweet and we would definitely recommend booking her for your wedding.

Penelope was wonderful!! She smiled through the whole ceremony and was prompt and very nice!! I would suggest anyone to have her as you officiant for your wedding. Anytime we talked to her she was always responding to me. I kept in touch with her that everything was on schedule and she always responded to me.

Penelope is another one of my favorite Reverend's to work with. I always hear so many good things about her after each ceremony she delivers.
