Wonderful!

Rev. Carolyn is a gem. Her attention to detail in the planning process put my husband and me at ease as we were preparing for the big day. She is warm, funny, and attentive--all qualities that helped make our ceremony perfect. We are incredibly grateful Rev. Carolyn was a part of our wedding.

Thank God for Rev Carolyn! Due to the brides mother being diagnosed with a terminal illness, the wedding had to be moved to Tennesee (we are in Michigan). It had ro be planned for within the week. I called Rev Carolyn and she guided me through it all! I was frantic and stressed to say the least but she was there for me every step of the way!! The brides Mom was too weak to travel and Rev Carolyn drove 30 minutes to where the brides Mom lives to perform the ceremony. She is truly amazing and I was blessed to have found her! I will be forever grateful, and could not have done it without her!

Reverend Carolyn is the best! She is very thorough and even thought of a couple of things that we had missed. She is very considerate, well spoken, and always has a smile on her face. She has been a real blessing to us!
