"I had the honor and privilege of meeting Emily during graduate school. When we were planning our wedding, it was important to us that someone who knew us would guide us through this process. Emily is a wonderful listener and compassionate human being. She embraced our vision and brought wisdom from her own marriage to create an intimate and meaningful ceremony that integrated our family and close friends. We are forever grateful for her time, patience, professionalism and most of all, friendship."

“Emily listens. She embraced our vision and vibe for our big day wholeheartedly. With her deep understanding, she guided us during the planning process, making sure we were choosing what we wanted for our day and not sidetracked by ‘shoulds’ or other people’s priorities. She always brought it back to us, for which I will be forever grateful. She guides with grace and calm. Having Emily as our officiant was like having our best friend along for the ride.” - Rebecca 


“Emily was an amazing officiant.  She was able to help someone who is not great with words. She helped me put all the words together as I was writing my own vows.  She knew when to push us and when to let us ride.  She also had a great balance of what was important to us and defining what we were trying to say to make sure that everyone attending understood as well.  I could not have imagined anyone other than Emily being our officiant. 

Would it be wrong to add, Plus we all know that the officiant is the backdrop to so many photos, her friendly smile shows up as a friend rather than a photobomb.” - Shannon
