Karen was such a wonderful celebrant. She spent so much time and effort working with us to create the perfect ceremony. She had so many great suggestions, was so thoughtful and accommodating, and truly cared about us as a couple. We received so many compliments from guests about how unique and "us" the ceremony was. We wanted our guests to feel like the ceremony defined us as a couple, and Karen went above and beyond to make sure this happened.Sent on 12/02/2017
