Andrea was extremely professional and accommodating. After Covid altered our original plans for a May wedding, we decided to elope at the end of June. I contacted Andre approximately 10 days prior to our chosen date. Luckily she was available! We chose a sunrise wedding on the beach and it was absolutely perfect. I would definitely recommend Andrea!Sent on 07/10/2020

Andrea officiated us right on the beach in bay head. It was a last minute decision and she was nothing short of professional and so kind. She was so patient while we customized our wording in our ceremony (even added some words at the last minute). I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for an elopement or a small wedding. It was a windy day with high tide, we did a fb live and you still heard her clear. It was a perfect day and she did an amazing job. She responded very quick to emails and answered every question we had. She also provided us with decorations, came early to set everything up.Sent on 09/14/2020

Andrea was very responsive and accommodating from the very first day that I contacted her. She helped us through the entire process of planning our elopement ceremony, including support with municipal paperwork, securing a location, and planning a custom ceremony. Every last detail of our ceremony was perfect. Andrea was a pleasure to work with and we are so thankful for her!Sent on 07/16/2020
