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.

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding day! And a big part of our day was all due to Shelley's presence as our officiant. She was extremely communicative, professional and takes great pride in her work. We are incredibly grateful for Shelley and her husband's assistance officiating and taking photos of our special day. I'm hopeful we get the good fortune of staying in touch with her!

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

Shelley is amazing !! I had only reached out to Shelley a month before our wedding date and met her for the first time in person the day of our wedding, but there was such a warm connection with her , that I had felt like we had known her forever! Me and my husband shared a lot of things with Shelley and she beautifully incorporated all of that into the ceremony which made it sooooo much more special and intimate! She really captured the moment that I was trying to create for our special day! She was so understanding and really worked with us. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to have officiated our day ! Thank you so much Shelley !

I cannot believe how fortunate we were to find Shelley as an officiant for our recent wedding. She took time to truly connect with both of us, to learn about our relationship, what we love about each other, and how we complement one another. And then she did research about the people and topics we told her we value, and incorporated what she learned into the most beautiful script for our wedding. Our guests commented that our ceremony was the most personalized and intimate ceremony they had ever been to, and we felt so close to Shelley throughout our experience with her. It's hard to express how special our relationship with her felt on our wedding day and in the days since then.

Shelley is amazing!!! She officiated over our SF City Hall wedding. She was a dream to work with especially during stressful pandemic times. She made the process super easy as we didn’t have a ton of time to plan. She had a helpful planning document that captured details about how we met, etc. We were able to also add a hand fasting ceremony which was a meaningful way to include our family members. The ceremony exceeded our expectations! Shelley is very communicative and easy to work with. Her calming and reassuring energy made the process easy. She was a perfect match and was one of the highlights of our wedding day. I highly recommend her!

Shelly was fantastic! We had an officiant cancel on us last minute and we reached out to Shelly within a week of our wedding. We couldn't be happier with how it turned out. 100% recommend!

FAQs

  • 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 currently a retired science teacher for 20+ years and was also a vice-principal. I had 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 former teacher and 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 and just feeling like,” wow, I got to marry those two” and the joy i feel is like right there ❤️every single time.
