  • We couldn’t be happier with Shauna as the officiant at our wedding. From the beginning, her calming and caring personality made us feel at ease and definitely helped on our wedding day, which was one of the main reasons we chose her. We received so many compliments on the way she officiated, and it was so nice to work with her throughout the process of writing our ceremony from beginning to end. On your wedding day, you need as many reassuring people around you as possible, and Shauna was exactly that to the both of us. She speaks gently, but so that people listen and are drawn into the ceremony, and helps make sure everything is in place so the ceremony runs smoothly. It really was just beautiful and we can’t thank her enough .
