    The perfect day!

    My husband and I weren’t sure what we wanted for our wedding. We were looking for something understated and not too formal. At first, when we contacted Wanda, we thought we wanted no ceremony at all. But she gently coaxed us toward doing a small one. And we are so glad that we did! It made our wedding so much better. Wanda encouraged us to write a small speech for each other and crafted a simple ceremony for us that was exactly what we wanted without knowing we did! We will always cherish the day of our wedding thanks to Wanda :D

    Our Wedding With Wanda Was Wonderful!

    We were extremely happy with Wanda's service! She went above and beyond to help make our day memorable and beautiful on very short notice! We had asked for a Directional Ceremony as well as a traditional blended family wedding ceremony. All those in attendance thoroughly enjoyed our wedding and how it was perfectly us!!! We highly recommend Wanda for your wedding ceremony.

    Amazing JP

    Wanda wed us very last minute and she was so kind and accommodating. She performed a beautiful smudging ceremony right before our wedding ceremony and we were so happy to have her. She made us feel so comfortable. 10/10

    Exactly what we wanted!

    My husband and I are both low key and were honestly dreading having a wedding where we would have to spend a ton and have everyones eyes on us. We enjoy attending big weddings but wanted to have a small 5 person gathering including myself, my husband, our two witnesses, and Wanda. When I contacted Wanda via phone to say that we wanted to get married April 1st... she of course pointed out that was April Fools. Our friends and family have been bugging us for years about getting married so we kind of wanted to make a joke/prank out of it seeing as they wouldn't believe us. When Wanda pointed out that we needed to get married before noon for it to work for April Fools we knew she was the lady for us. She was humorous, spunky, punctual, and to the point. Exactly what we needed! Thank you again Wanda for everything! (Married while Social Distancing)

    Weddings by Wanda's reply:

    Thank you so much! Your wedding was so much fun, did you fool the family? It was a honor to officiate your wedding and to witness the love shared between you both! Congratulations again and may your marriage always be joy, love and laughter!

    Got my husband’s name wrong TWICE

    During communications with Wanda she was polite and responsive. The day before our wedding however we had called her to let her know the details of the venue, (being down a trail at a lake) we asked her to please where comfortable walking shoes because it would be about a 10-15 minute walk to the site. She had also got my husband’s name wrong on the phone multiple times and we corrected her every time hoping that she would have it right the day of the ceremony. Day of the wedding arrives and she is not where she should’ve been to meet us for the walk to the location, we waited an extra 15 minutes looking for her. After finally arriving we started our walk, everyone was very excited and we had stopped a couple times to take some pictures on the way. While getting my pictures taken I could hear her complaining to my MIL about how long we were taking and when we would get to the location. She complained about the walk the entire time and also felt the need to tell us she hadn’t eaten dinner yet like it was our fault for having a wedding during her dinner time? Then we get to the site and during the vows she not only got my husband’s name wrong once, but TWO times! Instead of apologizing she laughed it off and said “it’s just one of those days”… No it was our wedding day and it was your job to get our names correct. Would not recommend to anyone

    Weddings by Wanda's reply:

    Dear Shannon and Tyler. I want to say I am sorry you feel this way.
    To clarify a couple of things, I was on time for the wedding, it wasn't communicated with me that there were two different parking lots with bathrooms and which one to go to. So when I arrived I started to communicate with the groom, letting him know I was there and if I was at the correct location.
    The walk was beautiful! I totally enjoyed the walk and had come prepared, distance and time were not a issue. I walked with Tyler's mom, She expressed to me that she hadn't had supper and was wearing the wrong shoes.
    I will and do take full responsibility for getting Tyler's name wrong. I feel and felt so bad about that, please accept my apologies.
    With all the interruptions that happened during the ceremony, the baby crying and the runner that almost knocked me over. I got distracted and said his name wrong. I was trying so hard not to! With everything that was going on I was trying to be lighthearted when I said," It is one of those days", it was in reference to all that. It really was unfortunate that there were so many interruptions during the ceremony. I can understand why you are so upset. My deepest apologies again. Still you are correct, it was your wedding day and it was my job to get your names correct no matter the situation!
    Regardless of all that, I think you both are loving and caring people, I wish you a marriage full of joy and love!
    Thank-you for your feedback.
