One of the highlights of our day

When planning a destination wedding, we didn’t know how would officiate the wedding. Our wedding planner recommend Rev. Wahila and we couldn’t be more thankful. She sent us a questionnaire about our relationship and turned the answers into the most personal, beautiful ceremony. We had multiple guests tell us that it was the best ceremony that they have ever been to and we couldn’t agree more. We went from not knowing how to find an officiant to having the best officiant one could ask for!

Truly Amazing and Excellent vow renewal to never forget.

We want to recommend Rev. Allison and Rev. Michelle. We knew from the start that we had made a great choice with just the first email we exchanged. The both of them equally made our out of the country vow renewal ceremony planning an amazing, unforgettable one. We couldn't believe how we put together our ceremony in a matter of nothing with their recommendations. We were in touch for 10 months on and off. Their response and willingness to help us was one we were amazed with. Our ceremony was prepared for us based on our questionary. We couldn't be more thankful. It was absolutely beautiful. They also recommend us a group of vendors that we ended up hiring and were wonderful recomendations.
If we were to renew our vows again we will hire them again and again. They were Godsend to us. Thanks to them we have beautiful memories. Don't hesitate to hire them and you will see for yourself that nothing it's impossible with their help. Thanks a million. We are so grateful.

Ceremony was December 29th, 2019

Our guests couldn't stop raving about Michelle

I was totally bewildered by the idea of writing our own vows. Somehow nothing seemed to capture exactly what I wanted to say, or how special that moment should feel. But WOW once we found Michelle - she just blew our every expectation out of the water. She gave us lots of beautifully written vows to choose from, but customized the ceremony with tons of personal details about our relationship and our wedding. She was also so very respectful of both of our faith backgrounds, and that of our guests. She worked with us to find exactly the tone we wanted, and to make sure the little details were just right. We come from two different faith backgrounds, and she took such care with even the little things - did we want her to wear a collar, did we want a scripture reading, or blessing of the rings, what would feel inclusive for all of our guests?

It was beyond perfect. The one thing our guests couldn’t stop talking about all night was how wonderful she was. I’m so, so glad, and so grateful we found Michelle. To top it off - we first reached out to her less than a month before our wedding (when our first plan for an officiant fell through). We feel very lucky she was available, and we’re thrilled she was part of our wedding. It’s so clear that she loves what she does, and we loved having her as part of our day.

Michelle is a joy to be around. She is kind and full of love and brings something extra to ceremonies with her genuine excitement for the love couples share. She goes the extra step to always make ceremonies as special and to the clients needs as possible. If I could I would work with her for all ceremonies.
