    Mary Ellen is the bomb!

    From first interaction, ME showed compassion and expediency. Ready with excellent suggestions but not at all pushy. Short notice bilingual (Chinese/English) ceremony including a WeChat broadcast for family in PRC. Coordinated interpreter (delightful young lady as well). Presented a delightful ceremony. You must hire Mary Ellen!
