    We can’t say enough good things about Stephen our new life friend. He saved our wedding. Things went very wrong at our wedding but the one thing everything one talks about is how beautiful our ceremony was. Don’t let the price turn you away. Stephen works with you for months on your ceremony. Payments are broken down into deposits. He writes your love story beautifully and tells it beautifully. Our guests enjoyed our ceremony so much they kept asking us his name and where did we find him. So folks, if your looking for a usual boring ceremony then hire someone else. If you want to keep your guests entertained go with him!!

    When we read Stephen's profile we wondered "would this ceremony be traditional" "would it be warm, touching and yet memorable"......all we can say is WOW.  From our very first conversation, Stephen made us feel like family....it was as if he were a longtime family friend. We live on the east coast, so we had a lot of moving parts coordinating our wedding long distance. Yet Stephen made himself available to meet during our jam packed trip to LA finalizing plans. It was a pleasure working with him on our ceremony and vows. Stephen employs an ingenious technique when writing a service. He had us answer questions which helped him weave our story together in a seamless manner. The end result was a beautiful, touching and, at times, humorous ceremony which was meaningful to us as well as our family and guests. We would highly recommend Stephen for anyone looking for a personalized ceremony. Michele and Jeff Strumeier
