    Incredible!

    This review is way over due. I want to start by thanking Paula (again) for everything she did at the ceremony. Paula was always reachable, professional and friendly, she helped us with all of questions. I can't thank her enough.

    THE best you can ask for!

    Paula was so accommodating and kind, and helpful with any question I had, and she really saved me by accepting my last-minute request and helping with much-needed advice on paperwork, especially during the early months of the COVID crisis. I have only the best to say! Still, 6 months after our little wedding ceremony, I remember Paula with such warmth and gratitude for having come across her! Thank you!

    Wonderful and highly recommended

    Paula was prompt in all our planning communications, arrived exactly when she said she would, asked questions about our personal preferences and was personable, humorous and kind. She gave us helpful information. Would highly recommend.

    Incredible!

    From the moment we met Paula, we knew she was the perfect person to officiate our wedding. She was funny, well spoken, kind and patient (especially with us at the rehersal...we get easily distracted)
    Paula created a ceremony that perfectly fit us and our personalities.

    Our guests have not stopped talking about her.

    We love you Paula! You are amazing!!!

    Couldn’t be happier with her :)

    Paula was amazing!
    We had a private ceremony with just us and parents and this didn’t want anything elaborate. Paula made our ceremony feel very intimate and personal :)
    She made sure to arrive early to go over things and discuss how we wanted things done and that put our minds at ease.
    Could be happier with her and highly recommend her services!!

    I cannot recommend Paula enough. We had witnessed her officiate my brother-in-law's wedding and immediately knew we wanted to book her. She arrived 15 minutes before the ceremony and asked us a few questions about how we wanted the ceremony to go (how long, did we write our own vows, any religious affiliations, etc). The ceremony itself was so lovely and Paula really seemed to speak from the heart and brought the whole room to tears (in the best way possible)!

    Perfect bilingual ceremony!

    We had an excellent experience with Paula as our wedding officiant. She provided a bilingual Spanish/English ceremony for our intercultural Mexican/Canadian wedding. She was responsive, pleasant and professional throughout the booking process and was transparent about fees. We had two telephone meetings with her during the planning process but she was also available by text and email. She offered us a selection of pre-written ceremony scripts and readings as well as the option to customize the ceremony however we liked. She was punctual on the wedding day, and the ceremony itself was absolutely beautiful and filled with emotion. Thank you Paula!

    She's fantastic! Our day wouldn't have been the same without her

    Paula was absolutely amazing. Always reachable, professional and friendly. She spent time going through all aspects with us was very helpful in creation of our vows and additional customizations that we had. All of our guests enjoyed the ceremony and we honestly couldn't be any happier. I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation.

    There wasn’t a dry eye in the house!

    Paula,

    From the moment we met you, we knew that you were the perfect officiant for our big day. We have received so many compliments about our ceremony, and we are so grateful that you helped bring our vision to life. It was so easy working with you and your sample scripts were exactly what we needed to inspire the right words for our big day. Thank you so much for guiding us though our vows and facilitating a memorable ceremony. We would highly recommend your services to anyone who wants a compassionate, flexible and professional officiant. We’re also quite certain that a few family members with upcoming weddings will be in touch with you soon.

    With sincere thanks,
    -Ignazio and Michelle
