"I just love helping folk create happy memories!"

Hello everyone!
I have such heart felt feelings of seeing true love.

I will become one of your best cheerleaders!

Why I am a wedding officiant

 History of events creates the story...
 
A very observant husband (my customer) says he notices his wife eyeing that tea set.
"Could you wrap it up for me? I'll slip away and put it in our auto while she's in the gallery".

I was a guest at a wedding for a couple who were beginning their lives together, close to their forties. The wedding officiant asked everyone to gather for a prayer for children. Yes, two beautiful children have completed this love event.

As a coordinator of wedding years ago, I observed a wedding officiant assist in making the bride and groom's day timeless, selfless, and full of care and love.

My best friend's soon to be husband asked me to plan a wedding ceremony for them in six hours!  Tea lights and a private space made it perfect. The minister asked me if I had a bible. I promptly pulled mine off the coffee table. We were in business for a great evening! Always be prepared!

Being asked to sing love songs at anniversary celebrations, church, and even coffee shops
is such an honor to love - all by itself!

SO HERE I AM. I AM HERE FOR YOU!
