Professional and Amazing!!
Rev Patti. Ruhala was a huge part of our day! We could not have done this without her. Planning a wedding during the pandemic was so stressful, but she honestly took that stress away from us. She was always so responsive and open to what we imagined for our big day. She was patient, kind, and kept our wedding party in order. 5/5 and we would recommend her to anyone getting married! Thank you Rev. Patti for being apart of our special day and making it perfect.Sent on 08/16/2020

Amazing and personal
Patti did an amazing job at writing up our wedding ceremony. She listened to our love story and took it and interwove it with the way she ministered our wedding. There was not a dry eye in the house at the way she included my children in the ceremony. Also she is a positive light and a big comfort on the day of the ceremony when nerves were running high.Sent on 08/31/2020
