    Wonderful Ceremony

    Valerie crafted a ceremony that felt extremely customized and special. She was extremely easy to work with and helped our wedding day come out exactly how we hoped it would. We've received several compliments from our guest at how unique and how beautiful our ceremony was. Would definitely recommend!

    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

    Amazing! ❤︯

    Our wedding was postponed due to the coronavirus and Valerie really helped us through it! She was in constant communication with us on our options on how to still have a ceremony and the legal measures with the NYC court system. We were able to have our ceremony on April 4th over zoom where we live streamed it over YouTube for our friends and family to tune in not only did she officiate the ceremony but Valerie reworked her original ceremony to make it work over zoom. She really took the time to get to know us as a couple and her words were extremely beautiful.

    Valerie is a true gem, very sweet and made our day so special! Her professionalize and knowledge is outstanding. She will also be preforming an extended ceremony in person on December 5th where our family can actually be in attendance. We feel so blessed to have Valerie be a part of our wedding and highly recommend her!

    Thank you Valerie for your hard work, kind words and inspiration throughout these times! Can’t wait to celebrate in December!

    Love,

    Kim & Jim Dietz

    Thank you Kim and Jim! This is certainly an usual time and required much creativity! Complying with the law while at the same time having a virtual ceremony! Yet we got it done! And now you are finally married! Looking forward to December! PS having your cute dog Louie as ring bearer was so sweet. And he behaved perfectly!
