As soon as we met with Samantha we knew we wanted to have her officiate our wedding! Her enthusiasm and organization is evident right from the beginning. She comes with great suggestions and questions that even us as a couple didn't even think about. Communication was clear and she came up with the most beautiful custom script that outlined our story as a couple. Our wedding was impacted by COVID-19 and had to be postponed to a later date. Samantha during this time was extremely flexible with this date change as well as location change. She did everything possible to make this a special day for us and keep us on track day of! She guided the music and witnesses during our ceremony to ensure smooth transitions and even helped with fluffing my dress when needed. We couldn't be happier with the outcome of our ceremony and strongly recommend Samantha for any other couples! Christopher & Andreea August 2020
