We were so lucky to find Sheri to be part of our wedding. We had procrastinated to find an officiant, and Sheri was able to put together an incredible ceremony in a short time. Even after spending just a short time getting to know us, the ceremony she developed captured our personalities and our relationship perfectly. We worked with amazing vendors for every part of our wedding, but the one we received the most compliments for was Sheri. Everyone told us it was the best ceremony they had ever seen. A few people actually thought she might be my mother because the ceremony was so personal. We cannot say enough about Sheri - we will recommend her to absolutely anyone who asks!Sent on 08/13/2017

We were lucky enough to get Sheri to officiate our wedding on extremely short notice. Our original officiant was suddenly unable to perform our ceremony on 10/21/17 and Sheri came to the rescue. We met with Sheri for a few hours less than a week before our scheduled ceremony. She constructed a ceremony that made it seem like she had known my husband and I for years, not 6 days. Our guests loved how she was able to combine our chosen readings with her words and make everything flow so effortlessly. We highly recommend Sheri and Flow Ceremonies.Sent on 11/07/2017

Sheri was simply amazing. Initially we met in person and told her stories about how we met, what we liked about each other, how/why we decided on marriage etc. Then she followed up with a sheet for each of us to complete. Initially I thought "how much information could she get from these questions?" well that was before I understood how amazing she was. She then took that information and drafted our ceremony. Somehow through our onsite and questionnaire she got us entirely. She was able to understand our relationship, our past and what mattered most to us. She was able to incorporate parts of our lives in the ceremony and did it in a way that made it flow perfectly. After the ceremony concluded on our wedding day I heard compliment after compliment from family/friends at how good our ceremony was. They loved the flow and the peppering of humor in the ceremony. I had no less than 15 people tell me it was one of the best and most memorable ceremonies they have attended. In addition what people liked most was that it wasn't just the same verbiage you hear at wedding ceremonies, it was all about us and that in turn kept their attention the entire time. We are very lucky to have worked with such a professional. If you have the chance to use Sheri consider yourself lucky!Sent on 11/29/2017
