If I could give a 10 star review I would. Shelby did an amazing job officiating my wedding. The ceremony was perfect thanks to her. She was on time, and patient with my gigantic family scrambling to be ready on time. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a perfect ceremony. She helped us with our vows, read a really cute poem, and even subtly reminded me to breathe a few times. Thank you Shelby for making it the best night of my life, and for being there for my wife and I on one of the most memorable nights of my life.

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 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!

Details: Wedding • Non-religious (no mention of God) • 20 guests or fewer • Help writing vows will not be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Officiant does not need to be present at rehearsal
