The BEST experience!

Shelly with Short and Sweet Weddings was absolutely a DREAM to work with. From the moment we contacted them about officiating, they were responsive, kind, and informative. When we met with Shelly, she was so lovely and spent some time getting to know us. When we got our script, I was in tears almost instantly! It was so personal and meaningful to my now husband and I. We couldn't have been more pleased with how it turned out. During the wedding day, she checked in with us right away to finalize some last minute changes. SO many guests came up to me at the cocktail hour and reception and raved about how AMAZING Shelly was. I am still getting calls about her! She is truly a talented person and you can fully trust her. From the bottom of my heart, I highly recommend Shelly and Short and Sweet Weddings!!!

Gary was a hit. We had multiple guests come up to us after the ceremony to commend his style and delivery. He is also very sweet and professional.

Book them!

Short and Sweet was amazing! Super easy to book and price was very reasonable! Our officiant Shelly was perfect - just one meeting with her and she nailed the type of ceremony we were going for! She included a beer-blending ceremony that was a favorite amongst our guests. We received so many compliments on her, people thought she had known us for years! 10/10 wound recommend!
