Just had Sonja (Shepherd) as our officiant for our wedding. She was brilliant. Our wedding was super casual at our house and Sonja was perfect. She is a lovely, genuine lady. I highly recommend her for future brides/grooms. :)

My wife and I booked Sonja Shepard through your service as our officiant, and we couldn't have been happier with our decision. Every time we communicated with her leading up to the event she was sweet and kind. She helped us to put together the perfect ceremony and she delivered it wonderfully. We would highly recommend Sonja to anyone who is looking for an officiant for their wedding. She is an amazing woman.
