Shirley was the perfect officiant. She incorporated the message we wanted to send out to our families with beautiful words. Our ceremony was perfect!Aug 30, 2018VerifiedDivine Love Ceremonies's reply
Thank you for the kind words, Kim. It was a true pleasure officiating at your wedding. And it was just lovely on the beautiful beach of Lake Erie.
Rev. Shirley was the perfect person to marry us! She was just great! We met with her almost a year ahead of time and we ended up making some changes along the way but didn't think to tell her - thankfully she was accommodating to our unpreparedness!! She also rearranged her schedule when we decided to do a rehearsal last minute. We really appreciated everything she said and did for us along with keeping the rain away for our outdoor October ceremony!Feb 14, 2018VerifiedDivine Love Ceremonies's reply
Thanks so much for the kind words. Planning a wedding can be very chaotic. I try always to go with the flow. You two are cute together - it was certainly my pleasure.
We were elated with our experience with Reverand Shirley. She was professional and relayed the exact message we had wanted during our ceremony. She was able to take charge of our rehearsal making everyone comfortable with what their own special job might be. She was a doll even after I inadvertently forgot to tell her that our ceremony time had changed and she arrived an hour early. We had so many compliments on our ceremony and I spent most of the night agreeing that we absolutely loved our ceremony as well.Oct 11, 2017VerifiedDivine Love Ceremonies's reply
Thank you so much for all the kind words. It was certainly my pleasure to officate at the wedding of two such special people. I truly hope our paths cross again.
Rev. Shirley was absolutely professional and we felt it was the most meaningful and beautiful ceremony we had attended. Those who were in attendance said the same. If you want a personalized service that speaks to the heart and soul, this is exactly who you want to officiate your one-of-a-kind day. Beautiful.Dec 27, 2018VerifiedDivine Love Ceremonies's reply
Thank you so much for the lovely review. It was certainly my pleasure to officiate at your wedding. You two are so much in love - it was a wonderful thing to witness. And you have a beautiful family. Wishing you much love and happiness in the new year!
Rev. Shirley was wonderful! She made our ceremony feel as unique and as special as we felt it was! She was a pleasure to work with, and was a joy to have with us on our special day! Thank you so much for a beautiful ceremony!Jul 22, 2018Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Wedding ceremony is $185 and $90 for a rehearsal. For a quick, small wedding with no rehearsal the price is $150.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I always meet with my wedding couples to go over the entire ceremony to customize and personalize it to their wishes.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I was ordained in 1998 at Fellowships of the Spirit in Lily Dale, NY. This is a two-year school with a highly intensive curriculum. Plus, I am always researching additions for new ceremonies and trends to add to my wedding service.
