Deanna Hannaford-Wilcox was wonderful! These are strange times indeed but she was so friendly and lovely even on such a brief occasion. I hope someday we can connect with her again, she seems like a truly lovely person and we were fortunate to have her conduct our very abbreviated ceremony. :) Skyler & Madisyn January 2021

Deanna Hannaford-Wilcox was fantastic!!! She learned our personalities through our pre-wedding (covid conforming) “meetings” - aka emails & Face Timing! She injected the appropriate amounts of humour & seriousness at the appropriate times through the service! Her suggestions ensured we had the exact ceremony we wanted! Scott & Anna December 2020
