More than we could have ever expected!

From start to finish, Debra and Lee were absolutely wonderful to work with during our wedding, Honestly, we were just looking for a officiant to marry us and Relish was recommended to me by another wedding venue coordinator. My wedding party was small (10 people) and we were looking to get married quickly. When I spoke with Debra and told her what we were looking for, she immediately squeezed us in to her schedule to start our wedding event. Debra is not JUST an officiant. She is very professional and so organized with planning weddings. She gave us such a beautiful and unforgettable experience making our special day that much more memorable. She really cared about the process and went above and beyond our expectations. Her husband Lee was amazing to work with during our photo shoot and my entire wedding party had FUN. I didn’t know it could be that easy but Debra is a pro and she made it very stress free for me and my husband. I highly recommend Relish regardless of the size of the wedding! You will not regret it! Russell and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for providing us with a beautiful wedding experience. We are so grateful to have had you to “seal the deal” for us!
Much appreciation and love to both of you!

AmErykahh Photoshoot

I had the luxury of working with Debra and Lee on a photoshoot for my fashion brand earlier this month. I am Fashion Designer and owner of AmErykahh Bridal based in the DMV. I had a fashion show back in April when we decided we were going to collaborate on making the ultimate dream come to life. From start to finish they made this process very easy and stress free. We emailed almost everyday to make sure we were on the same page about every major and minor detail regarding the shoot. I got married myself back in October of 2023 and if I knew about these two then. I would have definitely asked them to have done my wedding. I couldn't have asked for a better duo to have done this process with me. As I continue to further my brand, I will continue to look towards Relish to capture moments along the way.

Photographer for a Styled Shoot

Debra and Lee were wonderful to work with. They came out before the event to check out the venue so they would be prepared with the right equipment. I had set up for a styled shoot and invited a group of young adults to participate. Debra and Lee were great at interacting and putting the guests at ease. We received great photos to work with and I can't believe how quick the turnaround time was. I appreciate their professionalism and the ease with which they worked with everyone. I would highly recommend.
