    Mother of the Groom - Loved the ceremony

    As mother of the Groom, I was thrilled with the ceremony that Zia crafted with and for Mollie and Thomas. The time they spent talking with Zia certainly paid off, in my opinion. The ceremony included personal experiences, ritual, vows, and an exchange of rings. I especially enjoyed hearing the "story of Mollie and Thomas" told in storybook fashion. The bride and groom thanked all their parents which sealed the deal for me.
    If you are looking for a meaningful and personal ceremony, Zia does great work!

    Best Wedding Vendor By Far

    Wedding planning can be very stressful, but working with Zia was so easy. We chose her because she was approachable, friendly, and sweet. She helped navigate us through our ceremony and gave us advice for other wedding planning details that we hadn’t thought of. After a few calls and emails, Zia was able to come up with a ceremony that was exactly what we wanted - simple, sweet, and very much reflective of who we are as a couple. We laughed and cried during our wedding. We are so glad that we chose to work with Zia!
