    A Magical Ceremony

    From the start I knew my ceremony would be the most important part of the wedding . And Jennifer helped make that vision a reality, even through the challenges of COVID, which forced us to reschedule our wedding, and redesign it. We met with her several times and she helped us drop into the feelings we had for one another, our intentions, our fears, and the impacts of COVID on the wedding process. She's very, very gifted at this kind of thing, which really raises the whole consciousness of the event. She did a phenomenal job at writing a custom ceremony that reflected us and our distinct values, which I'm sure was not easy as we wanted and needed something quite unique in a very unique time. If you want to design your ceremony and have it reflect you as a couple, then I can't recommend Jennifer highly enough.

    Stop Looking!

    From the moment I saw the name of this vendor I knew I wanted them to be a part of my ceremony. Then we met Jennifer, the person behind this great company name and it just confirmed what I already felt in my heart. She would be the one who would guide us through our journey to being legally bound.

    Jennifer was determined to get to know us; she learned our story. Making sure to delve deeply into who we were and how we became who we were. She took all of this gathered information and created what is being called by our guests the most genuinely organic wedding experience that they've ever been a part of. Our guests have sent us thank you notes saying things such as "your ceremony made us want to be better", "best wedding I've ever attended" and "we left thinking how we could love one another more".

    We told Jennifer that we wanted to fill the space with love and make our guests feel love at every turn. She delivered! Our ceremony was filled with the most thoughtful and loved-filled rituals and sentiments that we will cherish forever.

    If you are looking for someone who will take their time to create for you an experience that embodies what love is meant to feel like, Jennifer is your person!

    Incredible

    Jennifer is a beautiful person. Inside and out. She made our wedding planning/wedding day everything we could of dreamt. She’s so calm and relaxing. Being in her presence really brought my husband and I to a place of unimaginable love throughout the chaos that a wedding brings.

    We not only had the perfect woman to marry us. But we gained a great friend in the process.

    I would recommend Jennifer time and time again! ♥️
