High Quality, customizable, beautiful Sermon!

I really lucked out with finding Shirley MacFarland!

She gave us a Beautiful, lovely sermon for our wedding! Our 2 year old Chihuahua was our ring bearer and she did a lovely job including him in our ceremony!

Her sermon was the perfect length, it really made a big impact for me and I didn’t know that it would!

She comes with great experience, her recommendations for our unity ceremony were a great help to find one that was special to us!

She helped us out so much at our rehearsal dinner getting our group organized so that on that big day, we were ready to go!

She also helped me out by coordinating with our DJ, so the day of, the ceremony went so very smoothly!

I planned our wedding on a small budget and I’m grateful I didn’t skimp on hiring Shirley! I now understand how big of a deal it is to have this part of your ceremony done the right way!

She’ll make you feel special and you won’t regret hiring her for your big day!

I’d highly recommend her!

Most Beautiful Ceremony!

Rev. Shirley was wonderful at our wedding! Not only did she make things easy with her ceremony script that you could go with as is or make changes that fit you better personally, she was so kind and sweet and the ceremony on our wedding day something to always remember! So many of our attendees made remarks on how beautiful the ceremony was, that they hadn't heard one like that before, and it was a beautiful way to share our love with each other and our loved ones! There were many happy tears in the audience and wedding party, even from our groomsmen! I would definitely recommend Rev. Shirley for anyone's ceremony!

Reverend Shirley led a very beautiful, personal and moving ceremony. She was so easy to work with and sought us out before the ceremony to give directions. Everything was very clear and ran smoothly. If you are looking for a personal, unique to you, ceremony, I highly recommend Divine Love Weddings.
