A Custom Fit!
We wanted a simple private ceremony, but more than just a signing of legal papers. We interviewed with Rev. Scarlett and felt her personality suited us perfectly. She gave us a handfasting, something we had heard of, but never witnessed, and pulled it off flawlessly for us. She let us speak our words, she guided us through our vows, she gave us everything we were hoping for. We couldn't be any more pleased. Timely, affordable, flexible to our location...just wonderful to work with!Sent on 12/19/2020
Natural Element Ceremonies's reply:Sandy & Jeff, thank you so much. You both have such warm & loving hearts, a real pleasure to work with. Your home is as warm cozy & inviting as yourselves. You had a stunning arrangement lined up for our ceremony. Honestly, while it may have been only us there, the room was still filled with love from you & your loved ones who joined us in Spirit. A very moving ceremony time shared, in deed. I am so happy your found me & blessed that I could help you and bring the Old Ways traditions to you with the Hand-fasting & Wine Sharing.

Nothing short of wonderful
Scarlett is a dream to work with. On short notice (2 weeks!) she helped me and my life partner plan our handfasting ceremony. She is professional, caring and a joy to be around. She didn't let the 2 week dead line stop her from helping us make our day our way. She focused so much time and energy into how we wanted it, and she gave us everything we wanted, needed, and then some. I have recommended her to a few of my friends who have been, or will be, married by her. She is such an amazing person and anyone would be lucky to have her officiate their wedding! In fact, we are hiring her to renew our vows this December. Please consider her for your ceremony, as she will be sure to make your day about you.Sent on 10/11/2020
Natural Element Ceremonies's reply:Thank you so much Meredith! It was a pleasure to work with you both. I loved the Medieval Peasant / Boho styling. I enjoyed playing with the wording as "Lord & Lady" - very fitting I thought, as well as fitting our shared Eclectic Spiritual ways. I am looking forward to your Year & A Day Renewal this Dec. Blessing Be. 💜
