I attended a wedding of my husband’s friends where I had never met the bride or groom, and while Shelley spoke about the couple during the ceremony I felt like I knew them. Shelley made the ceremony so personal, I knew I wanted her to be our wedding officiant. From our first meeting, to the rehearsal, to our wedding day, Shelley was a pleasure to work with. She listened to what we wanted, made suggestions and expand on our ideas, creating a unique ceremony that expressed who we are and what was important to us. It included our personal story, a surprise tribute to our parents and special wedding vows. Her warmth, attention to detail, and genuine interest in who Bart and I are as individuals and as a couple made us feel like we were being married by a friend. I\\\'m so glad when we look back on our wedding day we won\\\'t just remember a great celebration but we\\\'ll also remember exchanging vows in a very special ceremony tailored specifically for us.
