    Thoughtful and kind

    Val was a fantastic officiant and celebrant. She was thoughtful and warm from our first meeting and helped us out in big and small ways for our big day. She very kindly steered us through the process and kept us on track to make sure everything was ready for the day well in advance. Val worked closely with us to reflect on what mattered most to us and helped us prepare a unique ceremony that made our guests feel welcomed and included. Val also helped us with filing of our license and made sure everything went smoothly. Our ceremony was so special and heartfelt thanks to Val. We would highly recommend Val.

    Valerie Coleman, Wedding Officiant and Celebrant's reply:

    Thank you David and Alex! Your wedding was incredibly special and I am so thrilled you chose me to be your officiant! I enjoyed working with you two and seeing your wedding dreams come true. Wishing you much happiness!

    The perfect officiant for our marriage ceremony!

    My husband and I planned a small ceremony in central park. Valerie was very responsive and communicative. She provided good advice about obtaining the license and ideas for locations. She was reliable and arrived right on time for the ceremony. Our ceremony was absolutely blissful- just what we wanted. We had described the ceremony we wanted and Valerie helped make that happen. She was great with describing before the ceremony, what would happen and during the ceremony kept everything so smooth. Valerie helped to make our day stress-free and special. Thank you!

    Valerie Coleman, Wedding Officiant and Celebrant's reply:

    Rebecca and Andre, it was great meeting you and making your wedding day dreams come true! Best wishes to you both for a wonderful life together!

    Made our day special!

    Val officiated our wedding this summer. She did a really fantastic job, starting with asking us lots of questions about ourselves that she ended up weaving into the ceremony. She was very communicative and open to that way we wanted the ceremony to go. Would highly recommend!

    Valerie Coleman, Wedding Officiant and Celebrant's reply:

    Thanks Laura and Abby! I absolutely loved your story and was so happy to weave it into the perfect ceremony for you! Best wishes for a fantastic future together. xoxo
