Rev. Shirley did an absolutely fantastic job officiating our wedding. She is very personable and really makes you feel special. Everyone keeps commenting how wonderful the ceremony was! It was my favorite part of the day!Jun 7, 2016Verified
My now husband and I were extremely lucky to find Rev. Shirley Macfarland on Thumbtack. She was the first wedding officiant we looked into, and we were so pleased after having met her in person, that we decided to go with her to officiate our wedding! We received SO many compliments from friends and family about how beautiful her ceremony was. Everything she said throughout the ceremony suited us perfectly. We were truly lucky to have her as such an integral part of our special day. We highly recommend her.Oct 31, 2014Verified
There are so many words to describe Ms Rev Shirley. When we first met her and she read the ceremony reading to us, I cried. It was the most beautiful and personal piece I’ve ever heard. She came to our rehearsal and wedding ready and punctual. I could go on and on about her but you’ll be reading for days. If you are looking for an officiant who will make your day about you, show you compassion, this is who you’re looking for. She’ll make you laugh and make you smile and all my guests LOVED her. Thanks so much Ms Shirley! We appreciate you. Mr and Mrs ClaxtonOct 9, 2018Divine Love Ceremonies's reply
Thank you my sweet Shavonne. You two are the best. Loved officiating at your wedding with so much love around.
Reverend Shirley was a fantastic officiant for our wedding. She was quick and responsive to all the questions we had. She ran the rehearsal smoothly and efficiently and helped everything go according to plan. On the wedding day, Reverend Shirley was charming and did an excellent job running our ceremony. Some of our long-married relatives even commented on the truth and value of the wise words in her ceremony's message. -Joe and Hilary, married 07/14/2018Jul 26, 2018
Rev. Shirley Macfarland was exceptional for our 12/31/18 Wedding. Prior to our Wedding at our first meeting with Rev. Shirley, she walked us thru everything for our big day, she was so warm, and caring, and was extremely organized, and had tremendous attention to every detail. She made us feel completely at ease, and very welcomed. On the day of our wedding, Rev. Shirley arrived early, and went over everything before our ceremony to keep us calm, we had the most special, loving, intimate ceremony I have ever seen. Rev. Shirley made us feel like we were the only ones in the room with her! Rev. Shirley's words were so captivating, so loving, I cry writing this because we had the wedding of our dreams, because our ceremony was so unique, and filled with inspiration, and very special attention and care because of Rev. Shirley. I highly recommend Rev. Shirley, she is a beautiful person, who truly loves what she does for couples. We are so blessed, and grateful, that we had Rev. Shirley officiate our Wedding.Jan 14, 2019Divine Love Ceremonies's reply
