My associates and I are non-denominational wedding officates. We do, I DO’s. We officiate ceremonies in the states of Maryland, West Virginia, Northern Virginia, DC and Pennsylvania. We offer several services that are too numerous to mention here, but as a brief overview here are the basics:

Fees can start as low as $300 for elopement services. Most ceremonies average around $600 with rehearsals and travel costing extra. We will come to a location that is more than 2 hour away, but if an over night stay is required, a hotel room is requested so we can accomodate you and your wedding needs. A $150 deposit holds your date.

Fees included research on cultural, social and spiritual ideas, booking and holding your date and of course the ceremony.
If you are active duty military or getting ready to deploy please ask about a discount, giving a discount as a way of thanking you for your military service.

Rehearsals are an option I strongly recommend if you have more than 4 people involved in your wedding. Rehearsal fees start at $175 and must be scheduled in advance. If you choose not to rehearse, a rehearsal guide will be provided, to assist you through that process.

Meeting you and your fiancee to get your vision of your ceremony is essential. Vows are prepared based on what you choose to share with your officiant. A draft is emailed to you for your approval and together we work to get the words and the emotional elements appropriate for your ceremony to be memoriable. We will meet with you as many times as necessary. Phone calls and emails are unlimited.

On the day of your ceremony, if you don’t have an event planner, we can provide one for you for a resonable fee. If not, your officiant will do their best to direct your guests to the right spot, make sure everyone turns off their phones, everyone is in place and the guests stand when the bride enters the room. Your officiant will ensure you get through your vows; and try to keep you calm. Your officiant is also available for a blessing prior to sitting down to eat at your reception.

Because there are so many officiants available, there is back up just in case your officiant has a family emergency. You will be taken care of at no extra charge and no drama.

Please consider Weddings by Sandy your resource for all of your wedding needs.

We are available for other life ceremonies such as baby blessings, new business blessings and funerals Read less

Sandy Queen was our ceremony officiant. Because of our busy work schedules we were only able to meet with her once. The majority of our communication was done via email. During that one meeting Sandy managed to take notes on things we didn't even remember discussing with her. Sandy then put those personal anecdotes into our ceremony and it made it very personal. In fact, many of our guests assumed that we knew Sandy previously because she related a lot about us into the ceremony.
I have never been to a wedding and complimented someone on how nice their ceremony was, generally they are all the same. My husband and I received multiple compliments on how well Sandy did.
We would highly recommend Weddings by Sandy to anyone looking for a ceremony that is personal, has your own touch, and is professionally conducted.

Sandy was an absolutely wonderful officiant. She helped us create our perfect ceremony and was always available up to the last minute with questions/changes/adjustments. She helped us really personalize our ceremony and got the guest engaged from the moment we started. We really appreciate everything Sandy did, and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a personalized, special ceremony. She even attended our rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, and our ceremony reception. It was very meaningful - thank you so much Sandy!

We are delighted to have selected Weddings By Sandy to perform the ceremony on our special day. Our officiant, Rev. Jamie D Fisher, was top notch. From the first time we spoke with her over the phone, we knew we found the person we wanted to bring us together in union, and we know that this was just the beginning of a longer relationship together. Jamie made us feel incredibly comfortable with her and she was amazingly collaborative throughout the entire wedding process. Jamie provided great suggestions to ensure we not only had the right flow for our ceremony, but that we struck the right religious balance to appease both sides of our families. We are so happy to have enlisted Weddings By Sandy to be a part of our special day, and more importantly, that Jamie came into our lives.

Sandy Queen was exceptional. She was nice, professional and made the day special. We met up a couple of times and each time she helped plan the day and made it special. When she arrived she checked on my wife and I to see if we had any questions and if we needed help. Everything was awesome and we appreciated everything!

We loved Sandy! During our first meet and greet, we knew immediately we would go with her. She was very friendly, but to the point, and gave us tons of options for the ceremony. She didn't judge whether or not it was a religious ceremony (I came across a lot that did), and was just fantastic. She was helpful and responsive throughout the process. The day of, she did a great job and we keep talking about how much we loved our vows. Highly recommend!

We were so fortunate to have Sandy Queen as our wedding officiant! From the first time we met with her we just "clicked". And even though we only met with Sandy a handful of times before our wedding we really got to know and form a strong relationship with her. Guests from our wedding thought that she was a family friend we've known for years after hearing her officiate our wedding. And, honestly, that's how we felt about her on the day of the wedding... like we had known her for years. Sandy is just so genuine and so easy to talk to. She's a true pleasure to be around and we are so grateful to have had her guidance throughout this whole wedding experience. She really helped us in more ways than she may realize and we are forever grateful to her for that. She was sincerely invested in us as a couple and made our wedding ceremony so meaningful and special - it really was our most favorite part of the day. She brought both humor and seriousness to our ceremony and her words resonated not just with us but with everyone in the audience. She has this sense of calming about her and just being near her helped to settle our nerves. We knew we were in good hands with Sandy and we're so lucky that she was the one to usher us into the future, into this new life together!

Thank you, Sandy, for making our wedding so special and memorable!

What can I say? Truly I don't believe that that would be enough space in this box or words in the English language to express the excitement that we felt having Sandy Queen perform our wedding ceremony. Anyone that has ever planned a wedding knows how stressful it can get but Ms. Queen was right there when we needed her and took care of the finer details so that we wouldn't have to worry about them. We decided to do an 1860's theme wedding wherein the wedding party wore period costumes and Ms. Queen was right there with us wearing her costume as well. We received several compliments on her ceremony. She was an absolute joy to have as part of our wedding, I can't imagine that it would have been as amazingly awesome as it was without Ms. Queen! So, if you are in need of a wedding officiate, Weddings by Sandy should be your only choice!

Sandy Queen was my officiant and I cannot express how wonderful the ceremony was. She brought a calming energy to the ceremony that was noticed by many of the guests. Many people came to me after and expressed how much they enjoyed the ceremony and it was better than many of the weddings they had attended previously.

She was very helpful and provided us with a custom ceremony that was tailored to us. I am so happy that we selected her to perform the ceremony, I can not think of anything I would have changed.

Sandy McQueen officiated my wedding in Baltimore. The planning guide she gave us was a great help and let us customize our ceremony to fit our personalities. She was always prompt with answering questions via email or phone. She came to our rehearsal, which apparently a lot of officiants don't do. Sandy also made our ceremony programs, which were low cost and turned out lovely. Sandy was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her!

Sandy Queen served as a phenomenal officiant. She took the time to get to know us as a couple -- our story, our interests, our life paths. She worked bits and pieces of our stories into the ceremony that she constructed for us. She was also very flexible and left room for us to adjust the ceremony and choose which passages we liked. Throughout the process, Sandy also acted as a motherly mentor, giving us advice about life and marriage along the way. I would highly recommend Sandy as an officiant.

We were working with Sandy (not the owner, but a officiant on-staff)
She was the most responsive, wonderful, calming officiant a bride could ever ask for.
Even after the wedding, we have exchanged e-mails... she's always ready, happy and willing to answer any questions or lend a helping hand.

Cannot recommend her enough!

I wish I could give higher marks for Sandy Queen, but the rating system stops at five. She’s a TEN. When my husband and I decided to get married, we knew that it was going to be a hectic, stressful few weeks leading to the big day. Sandy was fantastic at every step along the way. She was very responsive, always replying to emails within a matter of hours. Sandy was genuinely interested in hearing about us, our relationship, and what we wanted out of the ceremony. She provided a ton of examples and suggestions, and helped us distill them into a customized format that was perfect. When the day arrived, Sandy was a calming force in a chaotic scene. You could just sense that she’d seen all this before, knew that this is the way it was supposed to be—to feel, and was going to see us through to the end that was our new beginning. My husband and I come from different backgrounds, were raised in different cultures, and both had guests in attendance from across the gamut, but all of them were quick to comment how much they liked Sandy—how she was just the perfect person to perform the ceremony. And something tells me it’s not the first time those words have been uttered. As the other comments here uniformly reflect, Sandy’s the real deal, and you’d be hard pressed to find someone better to officiate your special day.

I would really give Sandy Queen all 10's, if the "rate this vendor" would permit. It was St. Patricks Day and we woke up to 9" of snow. The wedding ceremony was to be held at 3pm at the Ellicott City Courthouse, but it was closed due to the snow. In a panic, because we had a reception starting at 4pm, I called Weddings by Sandy from the preferred vendors list at Turf Valley. I left a frantic message asking if anyone could help us and perform the wedding. I really didn't expect to be successful, but Sandy Queen called me and said she would be willing to come to the reception and we could do the ceremony there.
Our guests all sat mesmerized listening to Sandy celebrate the marriage of Maureen and James and everyone said it was the most meaningful ceremony they had ever been to. Sandy Queen is wonderful and if you are lucky enough for her to marry you, you and your guests will be touched and thrilled.
It was a lucky day for us that it snowed on St. Patricks Day!!!

My husband and I had a very short engagement and left some vital elements to our wedding down to the last few weeks, including our officiant! We went through numerous websites trying to get a feel for different ones, and we very much liked one of the services on the "Weddings by Sandy" website, as well as pretty much everything she had to say! We thankfully heard back from her the next day in that she would try and find us someone. She was very warm and gracious and always a pleasure to deal with.
We ended up with Kathleen Bell as our officiant and she was wonderful! She was in contact with us immediately and incredibly nice and easy to talk with, which I can imagine would be hard trying to get to know someone a little bit like this via email and speakerphone. She arrived early on our wedding day and we were able to do a pseudo walk-through so that everyone would know their places and cues. She asked all the right questions to a slightly frazzled bride, and was very patient with us.
Although we were not the best planners, we did know what we wanted and Kathleen absolutely helped us get there. She provided with a beautiful service that several people said how much they liked. It was perfect for us and we cannot thank her enough!

---Kathleen was also beyond flexible as our venue fell through at the last moment, and she was even calling and emailing with suggestions. She was a very genuine person.

Our original officiant (not from Weddings By Sandy) over-booked herself and had to cancel. I put out feelers for a new officiant and Weddings By Sandy immediately called me and let me know they could find an officiant for me (as we were only a month out from the wedding date, and I was pretty anxious). The officiant, Jaime, was absolutely wonderful! She is very professional and fun to talk to. She had a lot of great ideas and pointers, and she has a very good projecting voice. Easy to work with and a beautiful job all around.

The wedding idea book that she provides was excellent it helped me plan the wedding ceremony of my dreams. I cant say enough positive things about Sandy!!!!

Sandy was terrific! I met Sandy at a bridal show and instantly fell in love with her personality. I contacted her the following week to see if my date was available and immediately reserved my spot since it was 6 months away. We met with her a few months before the wedding and discussed what we wanted. I love her wedding idea book and how you can create your own ceremony. She was able to do our hand-fasting no problem. She kept in touch with me and as the days counted down was in constant contact. It was awesome how she wrangled my dysfunctional bunch for the rehearsal and the ceremony, keeping everyone on track. She did a fantastic job keeping my husband calm when the tent and chair set up was going all wrong. I showed up and the rain stopped just long enough for the ceremony. It was a great day! And even though she had another wedding that morning, I never knew it and felt like the day was all mine. Thank you so much to Sandy and all her efforts. We wouldn't have wanted anyone else to share our moment. Mel & Lee

Sandy Queen officiated my ceremony and it was perfect! We had a destination wedding, so we didn't even get to meet with her in person before the wedding date. She was very flexible and accommodating. Also, she was good at adding personal touches that our guests very much appreciated. We heard from many of our guests what a beautiful ceremony it was.

She helped us with special needs, put us at ease. We consider her a life long friend. We very lucky to have gotten Kathleen. She went above and beyond for us.

We met Sandy Queen (one of the two Sandys) at a bridal expo, and knew right away that she was the officiant for us. Meeting with her a second time sealed the deal. She was knowledgeable, and helped us put together the perfect ceremony, working with us to make it personal and significant to us. Many guests commented that it was one of the most beautiful ceremonies they had ever seen, one cousin was so moved she was in tears. She was extremely helpful in getting everyone in their places on wedding day, I'm not sure we could have managed without her.

Sandy was AWESOME to work with! We met her thru Skype and communicated thru email after. Sandy gave us so many options and ideas to work with so that we could really personalize our ceremony and make it our own.

I loved the ideas Sandy had, right up until the rehearsal when she helped us decide to read our vows in unison, which was very unique and beautiful. Sandy did an excellent job with orchestrating the rehearsal practice and keeping us in line.

She was great at going with the flow and was able to hold our Cord of Three Strands for us to braid during the ceremony, while reading the scripture that went along with it.

Sandy was so helpful and she even printed out the readings for us to use during the ceremony. I needed her subtle cues during the ceremony and she helped us along and made us feel comfortable.

Sandy made our ceremony planning process stress-free and easy! Even handling the payment through Pay Pal really helped us out. I had multiple guests comment on how much they liked our officiant and I'm so glad Ski Liberty recommended her to us!

We were so fortunate to have Sandy Queen as our officiant! She was wonderful in all aspects of the planning and the actual ceremony. From a nearly deaf organist to shaky ties with parents, she handled everything in the best way. She was very accommodating of our limited availability ( I was planning the wedding from several states away). I received many complements about how personal and special our ceremony was, and I know it was thanks to her. I would highly recommend Sandy, and hope to see more of her in the future!

Excellent, excellent officiants! I had the pleasure of working with two, fabulous ladies at first; Kathleen Bell ended up officiating our wedding and was an absolutely pleasure! She was responsive, professional, very flexible, sweet, and genuine. I almost went with the first officiant I met with (someone from another organization), but something just didn't feel right. When I met with an officiant from Weddings by Sandy, my gut said "this is it!" These ladies were so helpful and organized. I am always recommending Weddings by Sandy to everyone and will continue to do so.

My wife and I were so pleased with the service we received from Weddings by Sandy. Our original Officiant was Sandy Queen. We were matched with her because she performs same-sex ceremonies. She was an incredible woman and had great ideas for our ceremony. At the time we met, same-sex marriage was not legal in Maryland so we didn't have a date finalized. When we finally picked a date, she was already booked but assured us she would have another Officiant who would be amazing. She certainly delivered. From our very first meeting, we knew that Kathleen Bell was going to be a perfect fit for us. She became more of a friend than a vendor and we are so grateful for her help. She always made herself available for questions or concerns. Kathleen certainly helped make our day special. I will happily recommend Weddings by Sandy to any of my friends seeking an Officiant.

Rev. Sandy Bearden was our officiant at our wedding. When we were looking for an officiant, we wanted someone who would do a very heartfelt and meaningful ceremony, that was not overly religious. Sandy did a fantastic job! We were able to chose what we wanted to be read at the wedding, and Sandy was incredibly supportive and flexible throughout the whole process. She was also incredibly responsive to any email I sent to her, sometimes replying in less than a few minutes. Wow! I am SO GLAD we chose Sandy! My husband and I were able to have the exact ceremony we had wanted, and we were told by many friends and family that it was one of the most beautiful wedding ceremonies they had ever attended!

We were extremely lucky to get Sandy Queen as our officiant. We did some pre-marital counseling with her and gotten to know her about 6 months before the actual wedding. During this time we felt that we made a real connection and are so happy to meet her. She definitely helped us improve our relationship and get ready to become married. We liked her so much that we are planning to still see her now that we are married.

Sandy was Excellent!

Officiants are a tricky role to select. I'm more of a 'spiritual' belief background and my hubby, while appreciative of the ceremonial aspects, isn't overly religious. Therefore, we weren't comfortable with a church-based priest. Regardless, I had my reservations with just finding an Officiant at a Wedding Expo. It didn't matter, though, Sandy was so thoughtful and accomodating that I had nothing to worry - she was very sweet and was absolutely perfect. To be honest, I'd signed up with her right at the Expo because she just had such a great persona and you could just tell she'd be a great person to lead a service.

She's got a great program set up with LOTS of ideas to choose from when customizing your ceremony - not just the vows, but also for readings and custom rituals to put in. I felt terrible because I was 45 minutes late to the rehearsal and she was on time even though she'd been sick and lost her voice the whole week prior, but she was positively nice about it and I really appreciate that! The ceremony was perfect and orated in a way to give just the right ambience. The handfasting went off without a hitch and the dog and flower girl running a-muck during the service didn't make her miss a beat.

Thanks!

Absolutely perfect. Not only was Rev Sandy extremely accommodating for a couple planning their wedding from out of town, but she crafted a beautiful ceremony for us and made sure it went over smoothly. She was completely in control of all details and ensured that everything went exactly how we had envisioned. Having someone who REALLY knows what she is doing that you can REALLY trust huge for a bride.

Also, both my husband and I really loved the fact that she is truly a wealth of information when it comes to weddings and ceremonies. She has an enormous amount of information on every type of ceremony you can think of - so you can basically read through with your sig other and choose rituals or passages that you both like.
I am typically picky and never give 5 out of 5's...but in this case, I would give a 10 if I could.
Thank you, Rev Sandy!!

Sandy had plenty of examples for us to use to plan our wedding service. With Sandy's help, we customized our whole ceremony. Sandy even helped us write our own vows.

Sandy Queen was our Officiant for our Wedding on May 19th, 2012 and she was phenomenal!! Sandy had the patience of a saint while working with us on our wedding and all the details that went with it. (We were down to the last few days and still deciding on ceremony details and she was more than willing to help us out.) Sandy wrote the most beautiful "baby ceremony" for us as we wanted to include our wonderful 6 week old son into our ceremony. That lovely candle ceremony really made our day just that more special and everyone loved it! We can't recommend Sandy highly enough, her services were beyond compare! Thank You Sandy for all you did for us! We will definetly be keeping in touch!

We are so pleased with Sandy!!!!

She was so flexible and gave us great ideas (her idea book for the ceremony, amazing).

She met with us once over Skype and once in person before the wedding and gave us great feedback on our ceremony.

What impressed me most about Sandy was, on the day of the wedding, we changed one for the readings to feature what was on our Ketubah. She added in a section explaining the Ketubah on the spot prior to the reading. Everyone in the audience thought this was planned the entire time.

Sandy is well spoken, easy to work with, and very professional.

We highly recommend her!

Sandy Queen was our officiant and she was wonderful! Right from our first meeting with her we knew she was the perfect fit for our non-denominational ceremony. Sandy was so helpful in providing us with everything we needed to write the ceremony and she was incredibly responsive in the months leading up to the big day. The ceremony was beautiful and we heard nothing but positive comments from our guests. Thank you Sandy for making our wedding wonderful!

We wanted somewhat of a non-traditional ceremony vows and she worked with us every step of the way to provide ideas and help make everything flow. She was simply wonderful, even when we were making changes a couple weeks prior to the ceremony. She did an amazing job officiating the service as well. Thank you Sandy!

Sandy Queen was amazing! She helped put together a ceremony that was absolutely perfect in every way! We wanted a unique and personal ceremony that was joyful and lighthearted, but that would still be very loving and reflect personalities. She was very efficent and professional, but we felt that we had met a new friend. She worked beautifully together with the banquet coordinator at the wedding venue and with the DJ for timing music and sound so that everything was totally seamless and as beautiful and memorable as we had hoped!

Sandy was great! She allowed us to write our entire ceremony, keep our sanity during Hurricane Irene and lit our candles around the Tannery while the catering team was prepping the salads.

She has a story-telling voice and captured our love for one another in the readings causing tears and laughter during our special day.

Thank you so much!

Hillary Stishan, an associate of Weddings by Sandy did a fabulous job with our ceremony! From the first meeting she was great—and one of the few vendors that offered to come meet with us at a place of our convenience, which means a lot to a busy bride! She was very easy to work with, and we were able to easily go back and forth through email to create the perfect ceremony. We got so many complements from guests about how beautiful the ceremony was. I would absolutely recommend her!

Sandy Bearden is a WONDEFUL officiant if you're going non-denominational. A few words to describe her: flexible, honest, professional, intelligent, funny, genuine, and personable. Sandy, my husband, and I clicked immediately at our first meeting. She gave us such sound advice that personalizing our ceremony/vows was a piece of cake! Sandy never once pushed anything on us, but provided timely feedback. I'm pretty sure that most of the reason why our ceremony turned out to be absolutely stunning and memorable is because of Sandy Bearden!

It was easy to put our ceremony together thanks to her ceremony booklet that breaks everything down. This made it a little less stressful since we didnt know what was supposed to happen and in what order. At the end of it all, we got a booklet with a copy of the entire ceremony that was used on the wedding day for our memories! Thank you Sandy for everything!!!

It is well worth the money of how easy and stress free this service provides. Plus we wanted a nondenominational ceremony and they have tons of different wordings for that to choose from. She was nice enough to print out our vows for us as well! Only criticism I have to say is my last name was spelled wrong on the ceremony remembrance booklet, and she was unable to come to the rehearsal.. but that wasn't her fault and she provided a back up officiant. Other than that, I highly recommend this service and her!

Sandy clearly knows what she's doing, and she takes you under her wing and guides you through the process. She's as hands-on or as hands-off as you want her to be, but she makes the whole process clear and doable.

Of all of the aspects of our wedding, the ceremony was my favorite part. Largely, that's due to the fact that we were able to tailor the ceremony to our specific wishes and incorporate any readings or excerpts that spoke to us to make it truly personal.

Sandy was punctual for both the rehearsal and the wedding itself, alleviating any stress about whether or not there would be an officiant! The rehearsal was really helpful, and I recommend taking advantage of that option, even if you are having a small wedding. I was hesitant because of the extra cost, but in hindsight, I am SO glad we opted for it.

During the ceremony itself, Sandy had a beautiful presence and really won over both of our families. She was prepared with tissues and patience, both helpful things when you have a crier on your hands! And the bound copy of the ceremony really is something we are so glad to have to re-read and remember the day. Overall, an excellent job and a wonderful experience with Sandy.

Sandy performed our wedding recently and she did a great job! We didn't live near her and she coordinated meeting us with her personal trip so we didn't have to drive to her. She was very professional and was very determined to give us a ceremony that WE wanted. She gives you a great deal of options/examples to work with since we didn't even know where to start. She was prompt and was very helpful during the rehearsal. Thanks Sandy!

Sandy was great! She had a wealth of resources for me and my (now) husband to look through, but she was always receptive to incorporating our original ideas. She was understanding, even when we changed our venue to someplace three hours away! She was always a professional, supportive, pragmatic force in an otherwise chaotic process. I highly recommend her services. We were both very happy to have Sandy as our officiant.

Sandy was great to work with. From the first time we met her, writing our vows, the rehearsal, and then performing our ceremony; she was great! SHe knew how to lighten the moment when things didn't go smoothly (trying to put the rings in the bridal set together.) I would recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant.

We loved working with Sandy! We loved how she lets you create you whole wedding ceremony exactly the way you want it. We got many complements afterwords about how lovely the ceremony was. She was early to the wedding venue and help make sure everything was in order, and she was also very prompt on emails, phone calls, etc. We enjoyed working with her and will recommend her!!
Thank you sandy!

My husband had only one problem with the services. He felt hurried along. Turned out that the officiant didn't leave enough time between our wedding and the one after ours. She sent a couple people to come find me and see if I was on my way yet. I myself felt hurried, but that was because the wedding was at 1pm and I was trying to be on time without someone keeping track of the time. I later found out after the ceremony what all had happened. Other than that small issue, the services were excellent. She made the ceremony about me, my husband, and our family. It was beautiful and very personable. The verses were absolutely perfect! I would definately recommend Sandy to other people. I just hope that if she plans more than one wedding on the same day, that she at least warns them the day before so they better plan there day.

There are definite pluses here. The ceremony booklet is great. You can choose and customize your own ceremony. Our wedding was wonderful and the ceremony we chose was great. I had a fairytale wedding and Sandy did help make that happen. She is very organized and has great ideas for all types of weddings. She was friendly and accommodating for the most part.

Sandy worked with our budget to come to an agreement that worked on both sides which I greatly appreciate. Although I don't think we jived well (she focused her initial meeting all about her and asked little about me and my fiancee...I left thinking she doesn't know us at all), it worked out great that she had to give our wedding to another officiant that works with her since she had a conflict.

Kathleen Bell from Weddings by Sandy was great. She worked with us and advised us on questions while we wrote our own ceremony. Kathleen checked in often to make sure we were good and everyone was on the same page. She was very easygoing and open to our suggestions. We got compliments from many of our guests. We ended up having to do our wedding under our tent due to the off and on rain and she accommodated and adjusted seamlessly. Many thanks!

I had Sandy Queen, and as soon as we met with her we loved her personality. My guests raved about her ceremony and she is warm and personable. Her process for composing the ceremony is easy and allows the couple to get the tone and wording they want. I will say she was at times challenging to communicate with; planning a wedding can make you very "type A" and it's important questions and details are addressed quickly and clearly. This was a challenge throughout the process. She also double booked our rehearsal with another wedding and waited until the morning of our rehearsal to tell me she could only be present at the rehearsal for 10 minutes. In the end, it worked out fine. Overall, there were moments I was frustrated by her, but she is so lively and warm and she made our ceremony incredible.
