    Thoughtful and Flexible

    Shannon was an absolute joy to work with and the perfect officiant for our intimate ceremony. She reached out to us ahead of time to learn a little bit about our story and hear our thoughts on matrimony, which was great, as it made the whole arrangement seem less transactional. On the day of, she was flexible and understanding, as we were running ridiculously late! She had a great calming energy, as we were running around frantically. She even helped pin my corsage to my lapel!
    For the ceremony itself, she did a great job of integrating some of the thoughts we shared with her ahead of time with her own, as well as giving us the space to share our vows with each other. She pitched in on good ideas of photos and all around just had great energy. You can tell she just loves love, so it was a great vibe to have for what was just me, my spouse, her and the photographer. Would highly recommend!

    Forever & for Always's reply:

    Your wedding ceremony may have been small, but the love felt between the two of you wasn't small at all. I was truly inspired by your love story and the vows that you shared with one another. Thank you for choosing me to be a part of this very special moment in your love story. Wishing you a lifetime filled with more love, growth and gratitude.

    No need to look further! Shannon is the best!

    My now husband and I decided to elope before we have our big wedding next year. We contacted Shannon on short notice and she able to officiate our marriage. She gave the best advice on beaches for the ceremony and was super helpful navigating through everything and made feel extremely comfortable. I couldn鈥檛 have asked for a better officiant.

    Forever & for Always's reply:

    So happy that you found me and that I was available. It was great working with you both and I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness. Thank you for this kind and thoughtful review!
