Wedding Officiant

Shelby was wonderful and a calm and kind presence on our wedding day. She was flexible throughout our elopement planning and was punctual and professional! Her voice and overall demeanor was perfect for our intimate ceremony, regardless of crashing waves and other distractions along the beach where we married. She went above and beyond to make it to our difficult-to-reach location with no complaints. We’re so thankful to have found her to officiate!

Shelby did a wonderful job for us officiating our wedding. I knew we were in great hands from the moment we spoke during our initial call. She was extremely helpful from beginning to end, and even after! She is professional, caring, understanding, and overall just amazing. She made our ceremony perfect. Thanks Shelby!

Shelby officiated my virtual wedding on Zoom and we couldn’t have been happier. We hired her a little over a week before our ceremony and from when she reached out to the day of, Shelby was super responsive and made sure we were comfortable with the programming she planned for our ceremony. The day of the wedding, she made sure that all of our guests we on time and updated us up until we entered the screen. She played our requested music before the ceremony and made sure everyone had their cameras and mics off the entire time. She gave us the option to record the ceremony so we look forward to watching it!

Shelby was amazing. Due to an emergency, I contacted Shelby the day before my wedding. She responded quickly and we set up a phone meeting. I gave her minimal details. With little information and less than a day to prepare, she managed to make our beach ceremony still feel intimate and personalized. She was accommodating and so kind. Without rehearsing, we were so comfortable. With her guidance, the ceremony transitioned naturally and so beautifally. Everyone in attendance complimented her service. If you are unsure about an officiant, book Shelby and thank yourselves later.
