    Grounded, open, & insightful

    Following a recommendation from a friend, we hired Elizabeth and were happy at all turns with our decision. From the first conversation, we had a positive connection and could sense her great balance of interpersonal & professional excellence.

    Our wedding guests commented on Elizabeth's grounded presence, authenticity, and ability to graciously hold space for all participants. Elizabeth had knowledgable suggestions throughout our planning process, which we were rooted in our interests and sensibilities as the couple.

    Heartfelt Unions's reply:

    Thanks so much! It was a delight getting to know you both, and crafting the ceremony together. So beautiful and a reflection of your love and authenticity. I wish you all the best on your journey together!

    The most magical ceremony

    We'd originally asked a family member to officiate, and I'm SO glad they dropped and we found Elizabeth instead -- we never would have been handfasted without her suggesting it, and it was the most powerful part of the ceremony (which was saying something!!!). She was so wonderful to work with from start to finish, and honestly, having an elder in our lovely LGBT community perform the ceremony was so special.

    Heartfelt Unions's reply:

    Thanks so much! It was an honor to perform your ceremony and I'm so happy for you both. I wish you both all the best on your journey together!
