Best officiant ever

Scherie was amazing and we would recommend her to anyone! She was the best officiant for our wedding ceremony August 27th, 2022. We had 4-5 lengthy, very organized, and detailed meetings with Scherie leading up to our event. We discussed every detail of the ceremony that by the time our wedding day came, we felt so confident and calm that everything would go super smoothly. She wrote a super heartfelt and personalized love story for us that we didn’t hear until during the ceremony and she absolutely nailed it! She was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the wedding planning process and ceremony. You can truly tell how experienced and passionate she is at her job. Scherie is the best of the best!

If you are looking for a personalized wedding ceremony contact Scherie!

There are so many wonderful things about Scherie I don't even know where to start. She is such an incredible person and truly cares about making your day special. The amount time and thought she put into our wedding ceremony was amazing and made it unique to us. Scherie values the couple as they are and that shows in how she puts together a wedding ceremony. She listened to our ideas and input and made everything beautiful. We are still getting compliments on how lovely our ceremony was and we owe it all to Scherie. Thank you so much!

Scherie was the most wonderful officiant for our wedding! We had a dual language wedding (English & Spanish) and she was most helpful in having a location with great ambiance for our small, personal wedding. We highly recommend Scherie to anyone who is looking for a traditional or non-traditional ceremony!

Thank you, Scherie!

I had the pleasure of having Scherie as our officiant three years ago. She took the time to get to know my husband and I, creating a gorgeous wedding ceremony that I still am getting compliments about. Now that I am working as a wedding professional, I continue to hear amazing things about Scherie!
