Introduction: I am very thorough and make every effort to put my customers and clients at ease. I really listen to their needs to make sure and reassure that any service will be completed respectfully, with kindness and to their expectations. I truly enjoy and am very grateful that people feel that they can trust me into the privacy of their homes and lives to take care of loved family pets. It matters to me that people feel comfortable knowing I am there to take care of what needs to be done. Because people are so busy and have a lot going on, to be able to alleviate someone’s stress by getting things done and/or taking care of a pet -or two :), is something I am genuinely happy to do. I love spending time with a pet whether it’s playtime, just sitting quietly and petting them or just being there to provide some company and talk to them. Ultimately, I love to help both my customers and the animals I get to spend time with - I feel like I am making a difference somehow.

Wedding Officiant

Shelley is one of those special gems you might unexpectedly stumble upon through a little good luck and good fortune. She is kind, easy to work with, and she really went the extra mile to create a beautiful ceremony. Our wedding ceremony was my favorite part of my recent wedding, and I have nothing but gratitude and appreciation for Shelly's officiating.

Wedding Officiant

There are simply not enough wonderful words in the dictionary to correctly describe Shelley--as a human being and as a wedding officiant. From our very first conversation, we felt connected to Shelley and fully trusted her to create the most special ceremony. She delivered in an amazing way. She took the time to get to know us, answer our questions, and put our feelings into words that would transition us into married life. Shelly is truly amazing and you will absolutely LOVE working with her.

The five star rating system is lacking as far as the professional services of this Wedding Officiant is concerned!!!! She deserves a 10 Star Raring ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ For an older widowed couple the service was very special, the ceremony was written just for us, in fact my wife has read it over and over, still delighting on the finer points included in it about us. It was very a very special, well presented (including music that was very special to us) and will will a high point in our memories for ever! Thank you for providing us with this very special, yet private occasion. Jonathan and Teresita

Dear John and Tess, I want to thank you both from the top and bottom of my heart for truly sharing this poignant and significant part of your lives with me. Sitting and sharing just even a part of your life and families through pictures and stories is something I will never forget. I wish you health and safety. I wish for and to you all the love and blessings and strengths you give so generously to others. Take good good care of each other. Remember: ....“ Into my life You asked for my name You have the most beautiful smile My life started to change I wake up each day feeling all right With you right by my side Makes me feel things Will work out just fine” Gary Valencio - “How Did You Know?” They do and they will my friends. ❤️🙏🏻❤️ Shelley

Hiring Shelley to officiate our wedding was an excellent choice. She helped us deal with all the paperwork that goes into getting married, was super responsive when we needed her and her speech made our wedding day all the more special. I couldn't recommend her enough!

Tom and Lana, I thank you for your kind words but I am also very grateful to have been along this journey in your lives. You will always be my star crossed lovers - now husband and wife. It was an absolute pleasure and honor to be a part of your path. I wish you both alllllll the best!! ❤️❤️

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I feel that I am pretty reasonable. I know that we have a tendency to think more expensive is better. However, I am very open to working things out and can work with clients to find a fair price also.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I usually try to respond as quickly as I can to a client to let them know my availability and interest. Then I really like to establish communication either text or phone call. Again, I understand people have busy and hectic lives and so I really try hard to accommodate a client's schedule when meeting and consulting for the first time.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a science teacher for 20+ years and am currently also a vice-principal. However, I have many classroom pets and know the importance of taking care of many different types of animals. I grew up in SF and used to feed all the stray cats and care for them as they meandered through our backyard. I had the fortune of having a wonderful yellow lab for 16 amazing years. Can't even write about him after all these years still have a heavy heart. In other words, although I am professionally working with children and being an administrator, I love animals and I know that I give pets genuine and good, loving care. I provide quality and true attention - I believe that with all my heart. WEDDING OFFICIANT I actually started doing this when I officiated for a family member’s wedding. It was quite honestly, an amazing experience. To be a part of people’s journeys is something very special. Because of this, I embarked on doing this for others and I can honestly say, that each time it has been different, memorable and I am grateful over and over again. Helping to create a script that is personal and customized is almost my favorite part. I enjoy finding readings, poems, lyrics that may help to build an ambiance and gives each ceremony its own uniqueness. It is very important to me that each couple feels that their ceremony is just theirs. And that on each said date and each moment in time, the couple knows it is all about them/each other. I am always honored to be called on and I part inspired by the feelings of love, joy, excitement and commitment that can’t be denied and are so tangible. I leave smiling every single time.
