    Wedding Review

    Mr. and Mrs. Nelson are the sweetest people ever! They literally went above and beyond for our wedding. From Mrs. Nelson giving my mother a break and running our ceremony. Making sure we all walk in accordingly into the ceremony. To even adjusting our dresses and hair so we were all picture ready. Mr. Nelson shared beautiful words and even personalized it to make more about us and our background/culture. All of our guest could not stop talking about how beautiful the ceremony was! Highly recommend their services! You don’t want to miss out on these kind people they really resemble the meaning of love and long time unity! My husband and I look up to them a lot.

    The Wedding Preacher's reply:

    Wow! How precious. Thank you so much for those beautiful and kind words.
