  • Laney married my partner and I for our backyard wedding ceremony. Our plans had changed due to covid-19 and it worked out in our favor because Laney was available for this wedding date! Laney was very easy to communicate with over Wedding Wire messaging. She incorporated aspects into our ceremony that were meaningful to us as a couple. My partner and I are a mix of non-religious and spiritual and the vows she offered during our ceremony fit our needs perfectly! Our ceremony was short and sweet and she filed the marriage paperwork for us afterwards. I highly recommend hiring Laney as your officiant!
