"If you’re looking for a wedding officiant look no further, Amber is your girl! She totally customized our wedding ceremony. Amber incorporated my Mexican heritage lasso & arras tradition for us. Our wedding script was perfect. Our family and friends couldn’t stop raving about it and how it sounded as though Amber knew us forever! So much goes into a wedding that sometimes you forget about the ceremony itself. The officiant is an intricate piece that ties it all together. Amber really made the whole day special! Amber I can’t thank you enough!!" - Selena (Yelp)
