“My Wife and I are truly grateful to have chosen Laura to officiate our Wedding. From the beginning, Laura acted with an enthusiasm, professionalism, and genuine regard for our vision, that assured us we were making the right decision in choosing her. Aside from the prerequisites, those qualifications one would hope for in an officiant: organized, audible, reliable etc. (which she definitely is) -- it's her love for what she does that will strike you. She love's the occasion. She is all too happy to be in service to your dream -- and that impassioned approach, while being truly infectious, is also wholly necessary, as she knows. Our Wedding, without a doubt, would not have been the dream come true that it was, without her. We are greatly appreciative of her gifts. Thank you, Laura!"
