Meet the Team

Shannon Delorme Hamilton
Shannon Delorme Hamilton
Owner / Officiant

Do you remember that moment when you knew you had fallen in love? The butterflies. Your heart is racing. The permanent grin. That kind of love doesn’t come along very often. It needs to be honored and celebrated.

I am an Irish and Italian girl mixed with some Indigenous roots, who loves her heritage. I have been very sarcastic at times. However, I am also known for the organizational and professional skills that I have acquired in hospitality and customer service over 30+ years

I am an advocate for Children with Disabilities as my child was born with Cerebral Palsy. They need to be receiving more than they are getting. Without my sheer determination and my child’s wanting to feel normal, our family would not be where we are today.

I love everything 80s, and I am not ashamed to admit it! Especially the movies and music. I have a huge collection of both.

In my past time, you can find me watching hockey or football and cheering for my favorite teams!

I look forward to seeing you.
