    Spike is amazing!!!

    I think the greatest compliment to Spike’s work is the fact that our guests all thought that my husband and I had been friends with Spike for years. She was able to capture our story beautifully in just the two times we met with her before the ceremony. She was so much fun to work with and instilled a sense of trust from the moment we met her. Any concern I had about the fact that we didn’t have a rehearsal in advance of the wedding vanished as I listened to her and enjoyed the ceremony she helped us create. We would recommend Spike unconditionally and feel incredibly lucky for the opportunity to have worked with her.

    I don't know, what else can I say. We got Spike's name from a referral on a website, we sent her an email, hopped a plane, stayed at her ranch, Tiny T Ranch, and knew right away that Spike was the woman....the "must have" perform our ceremony - without a doubt! There are a few people you meet in life that just 'get it' and Spike is one of them. Spike doesn't push anything on you, she gets to know you but doesn't bug you, she puts her education, experience and heart, (omg her heart, so big, so deep!) into everything I have witnessed and experienced from the day we met. After our initial meeting weekend, we booked Spike; six months in advance from the suburbs of Philadelphia, and she never forgot about us - not once. Our ceremony was perfect, and we are over the moon to have Spike in the memories of our wedding day that will be treasured for a lifetime. I hope more and more couples choose to enjoy the "must have" we found in Spike.
