  • We decided to work with Claire after video chatting with her to discuss our envisioned ceremony. She was easy to work with and helpful when we were unsure about various parts of the ceremony. The ceremony she drafted for us was so beautiful - both families loved it and the touching message she conveyed. One thing that Claire really excels at, which I didn't realize until looking at our wedding photos, is stepping aside at important times during the ceremony to give the photographer a clean shot. Thank you Claire for marrying us and delivering such a beautiful ceremony!
