Personalized, easy to work with, FABULOUS!
Shannon was so wonderful! She was prompt and professional. She curated a ceremony that was perfect for us and had us proof and tweak the whole thing until we were happy. We really appreciated her modern approach to the ceremony. My other vendors spoke highly of her as well! She created a very memorable ceremony for us and I’m so grateful we went with her.Sent on 06/02/2021

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

I created Royalink Weddings for couples who were searching for a person to marry them, that was not their best friend, but yet felt like one. Someone who could make them feel confident in knowing that their ceremony would be tailored to their wishes, tell their love story, honor their beliefs and be as unique as they are. Royalink Weddings is my very own, woman created, loved and nurtured business. It means the world to me.
Shannon with Royalink Weddings is great to work with. Her attention to detail and genuine enthusiasm for life shows through in her work. She is very organized and her personality is warm and inviting which makes it very easy to feel comfortable around her. The quality of the ceremonies that Shannon writes is amazing. She is highly perceptive to those around her which allows her to tell a beautiful love story in a wedding ceremony. Shannon is a true professional!
