Shannon crafts beautiful ceremonies
When we started planning our wedding, we didn't know what direction we wanted to go as far as the officiant was concerned. People suggested asking a friend of ours, but we didn't have anyone in our lives who we felt knew us both equally well. In the end, we decided to find a professional using WeddingWire. We met up with two women, and it was obvious who the better choice was. The first woman we met was a bit scatter-brained and disheveled when we met her. When we met Shannon, however, we felt completely at ease. She's such a warm-hearted and kind person. She's incredibly easy to talk to. She gave us all sorts of guidance that really helped us along the way as we decided what type of ceremony we wanted. It was a little disconcerting asking someone who we didn't know to officiate our wedding. It's easy to worry that the ceremony script is just going to sound like a bunch of cheesy, nondescript platitudes all copied and pasted together. That was NOT the case with Shannon. It's clear how much thought and intention she puts into crafting her ceremony scripts. But, at the same time, she was very open to any changes we felt were important to us. For example, at no point did we want to be referred to as "man and wife" during the ceremony. Shannon heard us and kept that in mind when she wrote her first draft, and was super sensitive about any patriarchal sounding language. She also did a hand-fasting ceremony for us, which we were really excited about. All of our guests thought it was such a unique way to signify the strength of the bond that we've formed, and we're so happy to have a beautiful memento of our day. Long story short, hire Shannon! She's great!Sent on 11/14/2020
Royalink Weddings's reply:Elise + Kevin, thank you for sharing this touching review! Meeting the two of you last year, I still remember how excited you both were to be getting married. I felt your enthusiasm and sheer joy. Covid did alter your plans, but we rose to the occasion and created a perfect ceremony. The outdoor park setting, in the middle of the forest was ideal. Thank you for the opportunity to incorporate your beliefs and wishes. The hand-fasting was very fitting and provided an authentic moment to capture your true love for one another. It was my honor to officiate your wedding! Wishing you a future of love and adventure. Cheers, Shannon

We had a PERFECT ceremony!
Our ceremony was absolutely perfect thanks to Shannon! She thoughtfully wrote a ceremony that included all of the things that are important to Brock & I; family, adventure, our love story, and everything in between. We also did a rose ceremony for our moms and a wine box ceremony, which we never even thought of, and both were such nice additions to the day! Our guests are still talking about how wonderful the ceremony was, and how they felt as if they knew Brock & I even more after it because of how personalized it was. Shannon is the most caring person who will do whatever she can to ensure your wedding day is amazing. She was always available to answer my questions, and made sure our rehearsal ran smoothly, especially with a large wedding party! Thank you so much for making our ceremony special & something we will never forget. We couldn't have done it without you!Sent on 10/18/2020
Royalink Weddings's reply:Sarah and Brock, you are a dream! The love and reverence you both held for one another throughout your wedding was awe-inspiring. Everyone could see it, feel it and reflect on it. Being asked to officiate your wedding, was a very significant moment in my career, one that I will always treasure. Thank you for trusting me to take care of you on the most special day of your lives. It was such an honor and on top of that - so much fun! Let's do it again! Thank you for these incredibly kind words, it means so very much to me. Cheers! Shannon xoxo
