Praise for Sheri-D

“Sheri-D brought momentousness and deep reverence to our special day. She has a mind for words, and chooses them deliberately and carefully. In our meetings with Sheri-D, she welcomed our choices as we selected poems and quotes. With our consultation, she masterminded a beautiful ceremony involving arranging our ceremony chairs in a special way. She communicated with our wedding party what to do during the ceremony, allowing us to enjoy the occasion. Her pronunciation of our grandparents’ names was correct, which is no small feat given they had come from overseas. Sheri-D was warm and kind throughout her officiating duties.” – Justin S.
