Big wedding or small - I think we all want the same thing when we hire an officiant. We want someone who can speak with wisdom, cheer, and conviction. Someone who makes the ceremony and legal process of getting married feel like you are getting guided and supported by a close friend rather then just a hired stranger.
That is exactly what Valerie is-she is friend not stranger.
We had a small ceremony (an elopement with only 25 guests), so given that the vendor ratio was close to what the guest ratio was - we were definitely choosy about who to hire. We both wanted the day to feel like we were surrounded by friends...not just hired personnel. Valerie contacted us several times via phone prior to the ceremony to help us coordinate the ceremony and the various pieces of paperwork. This was all considered to be part of their lowest-cost elopement package, and it was very helpful. Furthermore, by the time we met face-to-face for the first time it really felt like we already knew them very well!
Valerie did a beautiful job speaking at the ceremony and I know we will have great memories of it for many days to come. She was a large part of what made the day so great, and I am grateful for that.
We highly recommend her, and hope you have a beautiful day as well!

Val is very flexible to meet our date and time, she met us prior to the ceremony to go through all the details to make sure we understand the process and get everything prepared. She is very friendly and considerate. Thank you!
