My fiance and I planned our wedding in 2.5 months, and when we contacted Shannon about 2 months prior to the date, she happily accommodated us into her busy schedule. Really, Shannon made everything about planning our ceremony easy. Her list of sample scripts is extensive, and... Read More we were able to form our own ceremony by mixing and matching, and changing it around to match what we both wanted. Her price was comparable to other officiants in the area, and her willingness to work with us on short notice made her the obvious choice for our last-minute wedding. We did not meet her until the morning of our wedding, but it did not influence the fluidity of the ceremony whatsoever. We had a run through prior to the arrival of our guests, and she was very calm and pleasant to be around. Her presence officiating our wedding was just perfect. She made our wedding special, and I highly recommend her for your ceremony. -Hailee and Daniel

Shannon officiated my wedding on September 17, 2016 and I couldn't be happier with the services she provided!

Read More ceremony and Shannon stuck through it with us, and with a smile on her face. Our ceremony was just how I wanted it - not too short, but not too long and touched on all the points I requested. I also talked to her about a balanced ceremony script as my husband and I have differing religious views - Shannon helped us put together a perfect blended script that we both felt comfortable with. Shannon answered all of my questions leading up to the wedding in a timely manner and was always very organized. She explained all of the details ahead of time so we would know exactly what to do. We did not have her at our rehearsal, but she put together an in depth outline for us to follow. On the day of the wedding I completely blanked and forgot the marriage license copies for her to send in and she was very understanding and cooperative after the wedding with helping us get the proper forms in to make everything legal. I couldn't have asked for a better officiant on our wedding day and I am so thankful to Shannon for being such an important part of our big day and making sure everything went seamlessly!
