    Best All Around- Makes the day Personal for You

    Everyone is still coming up to me and telling me how wonderful Lois was at our wedding ceremony. They were impressed with how much she knew about us and how personal she made the ceremony. Lois is an absolutely pleasure to work with and helped us with the timeline for the big day. She included all the details we mentioned which made our ceremony personal and perfect. I will definitely want Lois around to help us with other celebrations in the future. Thank you!

The thing about Lois is ability to adapt seamlessly to a bride and grooms collective personalities. When she steps up to officiate she has everyone's undivided attention. She is upbeat and humorous and at the same time deadly serious. Lois is so versatile I don't think there's any style ceremony she hasn't presided over. If you want the very best wedding experience you need to talk to Lois. I highly recommend her with 100% confidence.
