Wonderful Experience

It was such a pleasure to work with Susan for our recent wedding. She was consistently very responsive and prompt, and answered all of our questions very quickly. The ceremony document which she provides allowed us to customize our ceremony exactly how wanted and on the day of the wedding she delivered it exactly as planned. The sand ceremony element was special and allowed us to have a special keepsake from the day. Our guests commented on how they enjoyed Susan's words for the ceremony. We would recommend her to other couples!
