  • Shauna was the perfect officiant throughout the entire planning process. You can tell she really cares about the people she works with. She starts the process with a phone conversation to help get to know the couple and explain next steps. Then, we filled out a short and easy to complete questionnaire which she uses to write a personalized love story. It was a very collaborative process and we were able to provide feedback on the love story and make it perfect for us. The most impressive part was her delivery during the ceremony. She has a calming presence and that really helps when you're up there reciting your vows. We loved her and you should not hesitate to use her for your wedding, we would book her again in a heartbeat! Thank you Shauna! Much love, Eric and Lindsey.
