In January 2017, she completed her first ceremony in a hotel suite at the Rio Hotel & Casino. By December 31, 2017, she had officiated 101 ceremonies. She continued to conduct many weddings throughout Las Vegas including helicopter ceremonies to the Grand Canyon, over the Strip to Mount Charleston, and on Fremont Street. Due to her mother-in-law's Alzheimer's issues increasing, she and her husband relocated to Houston, his hometown, to be closer to her. From 2019 to 2021, she continued to commute between both cities and expand to other locations such as her hometown of Jackson, MI. She has now worked with close to 450 couples in six years of service.
