Shannon was exceptional throughout the entire process of planning our ceremony script and officiating our wedding. She responded to emails promptly and warmly and always asked if we needed help with anything. We did not have an opportunity to meet with her before our wedding... Read More because we live out of town. However, when she arrived at our venue, both my husband and I felt like she was a family friend we had known for many years. She was warm, calm, professional and organized. Our anxiety of standing in front of our family and friends disappeared with her presence. She led us through the ceremony every step of the way and took all the pressure off of us. Prior to booking our ceremony with Shannon, my husband and I considered asking a friend or family member to officiate our wedding for us. Immediately upon her arrival we knew we made the best decision by having Shannon there with us. Thank you, Shannon, for making our ceremony better than we could have imagined it to be!

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 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.
