Above and beyond
Working with Reverend Lili Freitas was the best part of our wedding. She made our ceremony so meaningful. Reverend Lili is pleasant to work with, intelligent, personable and really provided for a personalized wedding preparation experience. Our family and friends all indicated that the ceremony was so heartfelt because of Reverend Lili. Her expertise and experience just shines. My husband and I could not recommend Lili highly enough. If we could do it all again, we would without a doubt, work with Lili and Weddings of Heart. Thank you, Lili, for making our wedding truly special and memorable!!Sent on 11/16/2020

We can't reccomend Dr. Lili Freitas enough! She planned our ceremony with all of our wishes in mind and every aspect was just perfect. Dr. Freitas was so kind and warm we were drawn to her from our very first meeting. She executed our ceremony with such warmth and made us feel at ease the entire time. We had so many people ask us afterward where we found such an awesome wedding officiant! Thank you Dr. Freitas for contributing to our beautiful day and making it so special!Sent on 02/08/2020
