Elaine, it’s almost like you knew us when you sent us the vows! They’re perfect!  You have been a blessing! Thank you!

– Lisa V.

When my husband and I became engaged, we both knew we wanted an intimate, light hearted and personal ceremony.  Neither of us had a religious background or ties to a minister or priest to conduct our ceremony.  We found Elaine and decided to meet with her.  My husband and I both instantly loved her personality and wit and felt that she would be very easy to work with. (less stress the better when planning one of the most important days of your life.)   We wrote our own vows and Elaine read them beautifully, while adding some impromptu humor when I couldn’t get the ring on my husband’s swollen finger.  It made light of what could have been a stressful situation.  We have talked about renewing our vows and will definitely contact Elaine for her help.
