We Had The Wedding Of Our Dreams
When my, now, husband and I started planning our wedding, originally we had an officiant. My mom worked for a company that offered services like that, and we got it for free. Well, unfortunately, my mother quit her job long before our wedding, left on bad terms and we no longer has an officiant.Sent on 10/08/2019
When we started looking for our new officiant, we had to except that we aren't getting the work for free, but that also meant finding the right person since we were spending the money.
Dottie was the first person we reached out to and the first to respond. Before meeting her, I was telling myself to keep an open mind and I don't have to choose the first one. However, once we met her, and my husband (who is very shy and had social anxiety) was smiling, talking, LAUGHING with us, I knew she was the right person to wed us.
Once we decided this, Dottie has been a gem! She checked in on us consistently to make sure we're all on the same page, as well as try to ease our nerves. We are only in our 20's and we're making a life time commitment! She went over everything from the readings, to the legal paperwork, to how we should line up, and then some! Our ceremony was beautiful and just about everyone was in tears. It set the mood for the whole evening and it was an amazing feeling.
Dottie, from the bottom of our hearts, we appreciate everything you've done for us! If we could give you 10 stars, I'd still aim for 1,000. You expressed our love perfectly, and made as easy and stress free as possible. Thank you so much and I hope you'll still be doing this when we renew our vows in 10 years!
With much love and appreciation,
