Notable Wedding Review

From Yelp

My wife and I got married about a month ago. Shari performed our ceremony and she was simply great. We had friends tell us how beautiful and meaningful the ceremony was. The process to book was simple; we met with Shari at a coffee shop and we went from there. She was kind, friendly, and most importantly fun! She made us laugh every time we met with her. We also applied for our marriage license with her, again, the process was fast and simple. I would recommend Great Officiants to all my friends. Thank you, Shari. The ceremony was everything we expected.
