    Valerie ticked all the boxes we wanted and needed from our small Central Park wedding, and then some. Due to geography, we did not actually meet her until the morning of the ceremony. But her communication via phone and email was professional and friendly, and we appreciate the work that went into making our special day as smooth and lovely as it was. Our family greatly enjoyed the ceremony (a few tears of joy were shed), and many people commented on what a fine job she did in pulling it all together. In fact, we ended up using one of the poems she selected for us at a later event related to our wedding; so she clearly knows what she's doing.
    We'd recommend her highly and wish her nothing but the very best.

    Mat and Nadine, it was an absolute pleasure to create your wedding ceremony. Seeing the wonderful connection you both have with your families was truly wonderful. And those kids! How adorable! I do hope our paths cross again. Thank you for trusting me to be your officiant!

    Valerie was the absolute best choice of officiant for us for our wedding. After our initial meeting, she totally understood the romantic, non-denominational wedding we wanted and wrote a ceremony script that was perfect. There was not a dry eye in the room and we loved working with her. Would highly recommend!!

    We planned our NY wedding from Scotland and were so glad that we had Valerie as a celebrant. Although we never met her until the wedding day, her personality and professionalism shone through the emails. She gave us good advice and was always quick to answer any queries. We certainly didn't feel like the distance was an issue. The wedding questionnaire we completed helped her to get to know us better and we felt in control of what was being said on the day with Valerie adding her own special touches within the speech.
    Valerie made the wedding day itself very personal and made everyone feel at ease. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!

    James and Gary, thank you for your kind words! I was deeply touched by the words expressed by your family members during the ceremony. The love that you two have for each other brings such love and warmth from others. Thank you for allowing me to "tell your story" and be there for your special day!

    I have worked with Valerie many times and she is not only very professional and talented in what the does, but she is also a really good person. She makes you feel special on your wedding day and that is one of the most important qualities to have as an officiant and celebrant. Two thumbs up for Valerie.
