    Great Experience!

    We had a wonderful ceremony performed by Cheryl! We are so thankful to Cheryl for making our special day amazing! She is warm, authentic, passionate, with good sense of humor and with unique approach. We really wished for not too formal, more personal ceremony, and Cheryl was excellent to create that special, warm and fun environment. Prior the wedding she took very serious preparation and tried to learn as much facts as possible about us and to understand what kind of ceremony we want. Very professional! We absolutely loved the entire experience! Couldn't be happier!

    Custom Ceremonies's reply:

    We are so grateful for Cheryl!

    Cheryl is so comforting and allowed us to customize our ceremony to work with my Vietnamese Tea Ceremony traditions. Her experience ensures that she will have the resources and advice for a young, soon-to-be-married couple. Even in the face of a global pandemic, she helped us say I do with ease. Thank you so much for marrying us!!
