My husband Joe and I feel so grateful to have had Michele officiate our elopement ceremony. She is kind-spirited, open-minded, accommodating, and so thoughtful. She wrote the most beautiful script for us and really captured our love story perfectly. Plus, she put together the burned sage bundle, gorgeous ceremony book, ribbons from the handfasting ceremony, and the candles we used to have as keepsakes forever. She truly exceeded all of our expectations. Working with her was such a breeze, and I would highly recommend her to anyone!Sent on 10/30/2020

Michele is amazing!
Michele delivered the most beautiful ceremony for our wedding - truly exceeding all of our expectations. She was communicative through the process, answered our questions, and worked with us as we changed locations last minute. We feel so lucky to not have had to worry at all about knowing the ceremony would be great, as Michele was so professional. Our guests are still talking about how wonderful our ceremony was, and how personal it was to us as a couple! Many shared that it was their favorite wedding ceremony they had ever been to. We wish we could get married again to have another opportunity to work with Michele.Sent on 09/21/2020

Beautiful Ceremony and Officiant
Michele was absolutely amazing! She made our ceremony so incredibly special, and helped to ensure our guests remained present in the moment with us. Our custom ceremony was beautiful, and meant so much more to us than a traditional, pre-scripted ceremony. All of our guests completed the ceremony, and Michele, noting how wonderful she was!Sent on 09/17/2019
