Exactly what we needed

Shaughan made our ceremony exactly what we wanted it to be. It was short, sweet, and she added a bit of humor. She was flexible when we needed to move dates at the last minute due to covid.

A great fit for our ceremony

We knew when we met Shaughan that she was the one who we wanted to perform our ceremony. Her easy-going personality and punch line jokes really helped us to relax and laugh even through the nerves of standing up at the altar. She made the whole experience very easy and was extremely flexible and adaptable.

Cant ask for better !

Shaughan is the woman for the job . From rehearsal to ceremony she brought her humor and wit to the space bringing my group of nervous and slightly stressed people back down to a relaxed state knowing that everything is going to be great . My favorite part is that she kept my husband and I laughing and smiling the whole time .

This is awesome because all I asked for was a fun and easygoing service in between the serious stuff and the crying .

All in all it was all we could of asked for !
