One of the greatest blessings in my ministry is to officiate weddings. I so enjoy the process of working with couples to create a ceremony that truly speaks to their hearts. During this process, a connection is made between us so that we are not standing at the altar as strangers....but people who have made it possible for the two of you to walk back down the isle feeling truly married. Your ceremony is not just words on a piece of paper. It is the symbolic gesture and the right of passage to true union with another. It is the outward expression of what you already know inside your hearts.

Feel free to call or email with any questions you have about me and my services. I take Monday’s off. Otherwise, I’m prompt to reply. Read less

Rev. Simone was great! She was very kind and warm. We loved our ceremony and found it to be very personal to us. Her pre-marital counseling was fantastic. Those rates were very reasonable and allowed us to get to know her, and vice versa, better. I would recommend her again and again!

We couldn't have asked for a better officiant to marry us. Simone was wonderful in every way. She worked with us to create the perfect ceremony that was just us. Many of our guests came up to us after saying how beautiful our ceremony was.

I don't know where to begin.
We were recommended to Rev. Shepard by family friends. Our first meeting was brief, but she was very pleasant to talk to, and quite professional. She quickly was able to help us create a plan for our ceremony that was not only unique, but adapted several times as we learned more about what we wanted. She was quick to respond, and patient when we needed more time, and always willing to incorporate new ideas without complaint, and often with suggestions that complemented the changes. When the wedding day came, we were struck with a bout of extraordinarily strong weather. In the madness that should have ensued, she helped the party adapt quickly to a change of plans, and delivered an exceptional ceremony. She always managed to keep what we wanted of our voice to show through as a priority, and we still are hearing comments from our guests about how incredible she was. We highly recommend her.

Rev Simone is fantastic! My husband and I considered having a friend marry us because we were new to the area and aren't particularly religious. I'm so glad that we went with a professional! Rev Simone makes you feel like you are the only couple she is working with and works with you to create a ceremony that is truly unique. When the weather didn't cooperate for our planned outdoor ceremony she was right next to us helping us figure out what the best plan was. She helped us stay calm and to have an amazing wedding ceremony that was perfect for us.

Simone was wonderful. We had a problem where our other officiant bowed out, so a month or two ahead of the wedding we were scrambling to find someone.

It all turned out great because Simone stepped in. She spoke clearly and was flexible with our vows. We wanted something less traditional and she provided that in spades. It was wonderful.

If you're thinking about booking her for your ceremony, don't hesitate.

Simone is fantastic at what she does and a lovely person to boot. She worked with us to help us put together just the ceremony we wanted and was super flexible in contact, travel, and details. Day-of, she kept us standing, putting the right foot in front of the left foot, and got us through it in spite of ourselves. Recommend her without reservation.

We feel so fortunate to have met Simone and had her be part of our wedding. We requested pre-marital counseling and were so happy we did. Simone helped us strengthen our relationship and we discovered things about each other that we never knew. Simone was not only an integral part of the wedding, but we also made a lifelong friend. We highly recommend Simone and know that she will be a bright and amazing part of your wedding.

We were so pleased. We highly recommend Simone to any and all for any major event in your life. She was very kind, professional and best of all she took the time to get to know us and our wishes. She helped us write our vows on who we are. Many after the wedding asked for a copy of the vows. WE feel so blessed to have found this amazing lady.

Rev. Simone Shepard was simply amazing. My husband and I live in Chicago and had a destination wedding in Colorado. Rev. Shepard was willing to spend the time to get to know us as people and as a couple... and it showed in the beautiful and eloquent ceremony she created for us. We spoke on the phone, Skyped, and met twice before our big day. She allowed us to read over the ceremony and make changes until it felt perfect! How many officiants do that?
She has a beautiful, calming and pure sounding voice that made us both calm (even during the vows!) and feel as though we were talking to a friend. Her words on love, our marriage and the family we have now created are something we will always treasure whenever watching our wedding video.

Thanks Simone!
