    Great event staff services!
    I hired Elvia and her assistant as party staff and they were so helpful in making sure our event ran smoothly and our guests were welcomed. There was no need to provide them with much direction as they took initiative to keep on top of many tasks as needed. They were also very friendly and pleasant to work with. I am so thankful for them--they were a tremendous help!

    Elvia was very kind, polite, professional and patient even when the bride was running late in getting ready for the ceremony. She performed a beautiful bi-lingual ceremony even the guests commented on how lovely it was. We were all very pleased with her service and will recommend her to friends and family for any future weddings. Thank you so much for a wonderful and beautiful ceremony!

    Elvia was amazing! Our wedding was in February. The communication ethics that she has are amazing! And her experience as a wedding officiant definitely shines through! We asked her last minute if she could be there early to rehearse with the audio for our wedding and she absolutely was! She performed a non religious bilingual ceremony and it was amazing! Thank you so much Elvia!

    Elvia was great!!! We requested a last minute rehearsal and she was there early... the ceremony went perfect without any hiccups too. Elvia was able to perform the ceremony in both English and Spanish which was very important to us being that both our parents are Spanish speakers only. Thank you so much Elvia!

    Elvia came out and she was there super early!! She was even there before me which was one less thing I had stress about. She performed a beautiful bilingual service. What I loved most is that she had all of her notes written down in a notebook. It seemed like everything she had written was just specifically for us. My sister is even considering hiring her as well! Thank you Elvia

    Elvia went above and beyond the call of duty for us. She came out to our rehearsal on time and back at the ceremony on time. We had an outdoor wedding and it was raining. This delayed the start by over an hour. Elvia stayed without any issues. The ceremony was changed due to the weather and Elvia was able to work with the coordinator without any issues. Elvia wrote and said very nice things for us. Thank you very much!
