Best of the Best!
Mr and Mrs Jack Climer will take care of you every step of the way-from first meeting until after the ceremony, including filing all the paperwork for the copies of the marriage license. The Climers will customize any ceremony to YOUR needs, and have vast 'life' experience that makes the day even more special. Their compassion and professionalism is unparalleled and I would recommend them to ANY couple considering an independent officiant! You will not be sorry you contacted Mtn Valley ministries.Sent on 12/20/2018
