    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!

    Lovely wedding in Central Park

    We hosted a lovely small wedding in Central Park in socially distanced manner. Valerie sent us a very thorough questionnaire to get to know us. And she wrote a touching wedding script based on the story. It was as if she knew us for very long time. She provided wedding vow samples that really speak to us. It was a beautiful ceremony by Valerie. We are very grateful

    Valerie Coleman, Wedding Officiant and Celebrant's reply:

    Xiao and Xinbo, thank you for trusting me with your love story and letting me create your ceremony! I really enjoyed getting to know you. So glad you are happy!
