Judy performed our August ceremony. She was perfect! She made the ceremony so personal, she even teared up in the middle of it. It was exactly what we wanted and our guests (and my Mother) keep commenting on what a beautiful joyous ceremony we had.Sent on 10/31/2016
I am a wedding coordinator so have worked with Judy many times and my clients have always been very happy. Working with her personally though I was so touched with the time, thought and emotion she put into our lovely ceremony. Judy is the best and I am so glad we decided to have her be such a special part in the most important part of our day!

Judy was our officiant for our August wedding, and she did an amazing job! We were able to FaceTime with her as well as have an in-person meeting during the planning process to finalize our ceremony, and all of her suggestions were great. She was also incredibly helpful and organized for rehearsal to make sure everything ran smoothly in our very non-traditional outdoor venue. I couldn't begin to tell you how many compliments we have received from family and friends on how beautiful her message was. We are so happy we were able to work with her, she helped make our day so special!Sent on 09/09/2018
