Vera officiated our wedding three weeks ago. She was very kind and knowledgeable as she had done hundreds of weddings. During our consultation she provided us with many good options for our ceremony. She came prepared with handouts of the ceremonies and we were able to take them home to review which options we wanted. The rehearsal the night before went very well, she was able to direct and organize the wedding party so we knew where to be and when. She was early for the wedding, and she was able to coordinate with our sound techs and the venue managers which made the ceremony go smooth. We do have to mention she had made some mistakes that were quite embarrassing. My husband uses his middle name Shane day to day and we had mentioned that to her, however she kept using his first name which made the ceremony feel less personal to us, as family and friends know him only by Shane. His legal first name is Steven and she kept saying Steve, never in his life has he used Steve. At one point she went back and forth between the two names making it seem like there was two grooms. Her printed book that she read off of was all written as Shane. There was also mispronunciations of the last name and it was when she announced us as husband and wife. Our last name is Camarillo and she said Carero. The mistakes were pointed out to us by many family and friends who laughed and made us feel embarrassed. They made comments like wow I didn't know you were marrying Steve, or hello Mr and Mrs Carero.Sent on 28/10/2019
Besides the mistakes on the names, Vera was great. Just make sure to confirm the names with her day of.
We did love the keepsake book she made us with our vows written in it. And it was amazing she filed all the paperwork for us and did it within a few days. All these things took so much stress off of us.

Vera was incredible.Sent on 15/09/2019
We were so pleased with the service she provided. She helped us plan and personalize the ceremony and met with us during the rehearsal to go through exactly what to expect. On the day, everything was seamless and our guests all mentioned how much they liked what she had said and done throughout the ceremony. We would certainly recommend Vera

Amazing in every way!
Vera did a wonderful job with our ceremony. She sat down with us and listened, offered her recommendations and then put a beautiful piece together she had customized just for us. Our wedding guests thought she was lovely, and everyone enjoyed the ceremony. Her responsiveness and flexibility on the wedding date was also very much appreciated, as we held an outdoor ceremony, and were advised to get started an hour earlier than scheduled due to the possibility of rain. When we called her on short notice, she jumped into action and was able to start an hour earlier than scheduled and we avoided the rain. We highly recommend Vera.

We were very Happy
We had a great experience with Vera. She was very professional and friendly and did a great job on our ceremony. She had many ceremony options for us to choose from and was also very flexible, adding and taking out things at our request. Lastly, she one of the less expensive options that we looked at and at no time did I think we sacrificed quality. I would highly recommend her.Sent on 09/07/2019

Perfect celebrant for our day!
We met with Vera before the wedding and I knew she was a perfect fit for us. She was lovely and down to earth which my husband and I are. The ceremony was so beautiful and the extra touches she recommended were lovely. Everyone at the wedding commented on how special it was. Thank you Vera for being so lovely and helping us so much on our special day!Sent on 07/11/2018

Amazing service & professionalism
Vera was an amazing person to work with around our wedding. She went up and beyond expected. An hour drive which took 4 hours due to weather, but she still made it to perform our service. Thank you Vera, I would recommend anyone getting married to have Vera perform it, she is an amazing person who does the job she stated she would do. Thank you once again Vera for everything you have done.Sent on 04/10/2018
All Things Shamanic's reply:Thank you Anthony and Michael for the wonderful review. Once again it was such a delight to meet you both and to officiate your wedding ceremony in the mountains.

Rev. Vera McNally was great to work with. Vera first contacted me when she heard I was looking for an officiate and could not seem to find someone who could work with our date that was already set. Vera was very quick to respond to my emails and text messages with answers to all my questions. We then decided to meet with her to discuss the details, Vera was very thorough in explaining how the ceremony would go, gave us vow options, and also said she would be able to accommodate our request for a sand ceremony (which everyone loved!). Not only was Vera very professional but she made our ceremony unique to us and our families. On the big day she arrived early and did a run through of how everything would go and explained everything in fine details to my maid of honor, the best man, my husband and myself (even though I was too nervous to understand what was being said). Thank you Rev. Vera for such a beautiful ceremony!Sent on 22/09/2017
