    An amazing experience!

    Being married by Judy was a uniquely magical experience. And she attended to all the details so it was also stress free.
    We were married in October. Her gardens were resplendent with color. The leaves were at their peak fall display and before we arrived, Judy went out and picked a bouquet of flowers for our occasion which was equally beautiful. We chose to be married with the fall colors as our background but there were many other choices in her gardens.
    She seamlessly integrated our desired language into the ceremony which made the ceremony uniquely ours, not some cookie-cutter event that could have come out of a crackerjacks box.
    When the ceremony was over, she had a bottle of Prosecco and a cake waiting for us.
    She even volunteered to act as the wedding photographer if we wanted to avoid that expense.
    Finally, when all was said and done, she followed us down to the town clerk and registered the marriage license for us. Within minutes, we walked away with our notarized copies, a happily married couple.
    Judy made the event a joy to experience and we believe she took as much joy out of our wedding as we did.
    We couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

    It truly was my pleasure to see how much you appreciated my work and it was a honor to be your officiant.

    Super personal!

    Judy was so positive to talk to the first time I called her. Our town hall clerk had referred us to her and I was not disappointed. The ceremony had a perfect and personal touch. I especially love the adorable cute “love” wine opener gift.

    Sacred Dove Celebrant's reply:

    Thank you, it was great fun to be a part of your special. Love prevails despite the cold wind. All the best to you and Todd.
