I am not your typical officiant and wedding coordinator. I have my own way of doing things and have my own message behind my business. I advocate for love of all kinds. The struggles, the hardships, and the joy. I believe in Love is Love and finding true love at any point of your life. I want to help people to know they are loved, every single part of them. Not judged by looks, their scars, inside and out, and who they love. It’s not just about finding the right services for you, it is what I do and bring for your day. That is peace of mind and stress free.

Fun, Unique and Memerable

Made the wedding one to remember! Unique and personalized.

Only issue was that we agreed on her wearing black with her black cape, and instead she showed up in a jean jacket with tons of pride patches all over it. Not opposed to that normally, but it clashed with the overall theme and aesthetic of the wedding. Even though we were a same-sex wedding, we didn't want to have it thrown in my conservative family's faces. We had thought she was going to change for the ceremony, and didn't realize she was still wearing it until we were walking down the aisle.

Would still recommend, though, as she was fun to work with and made sure to provide a one of a kind ceremony.

Thank you!!!

Shannon did an incredible job as our officiant. She would frequently check in with us and really took the time to get to know us as a couple to ensure that the ceremony was personalized to us. Shannon's personality and professionalism were the perfect fit for us and we're so thankful that we chose First Chapter Weddings to be our 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!
