Merly was a pleasure to work with. She was down to earth and took the time to get to know us as a couple. We went into crafting the ceremony pretty overwhelmed with wedding planning; we had very little concept of what we wanted other than steering away from a traditional ceremony. Merly was patient, flexible and gave us both valuable guidance and the freedom to make the ceremony our own. She was professional and warm; she made our wedding ceremony something so special to us!Sent on 03/25/2018
