Jonathan was a youth of mine ages ago when I was a youth minister. He and his sister were two of my favorites. I loved his entire family, actually, so when he contacted me about officiating his and Allyson’s wedding, the answer was an immediate YES! In a quaint, family-only ceremony at St. Mark’s chapel, they officially became Mr. and Mrs. I feel so fortunate that I could marry these two and still be connected after so many years apart.
Another couple close to my heart – Jonathan and Sammy were in my college group several years ago, and we’ve stayed close friends. I was so happy to officiate their wedding after seeing their love grow throughout the years.
From Geoffrey and Dessteen:
“Stephanie is absolutely wonderful! From our first meeting with her through the follow up on our marriage license submission, we are certain that we could not have found a better officiant, person and wonderful spirit to preside over our wedding. Stephanie made my wife and I feel at ease through the entire process and her heart felt presence at our ceremony was one of a kind. I am not one who ever writes reviews, however the utmost in excellence of Stephanie’s service is more than deserving of the highest marks. It was clearly apparent to my wife and I, our family and our guests that Stephanie is a completely true and kind soul. Stephanie worked with our needs of having a small, intimate ceremony that was well worth her very affordable options. We certainly recommend Stephanie Shaffer Ceremonies to all who read this review and we will certainly look no further than Stephanie when we renew our vows with one another. Thank you so very much Stephanie for such a wonderful, enjoyable and memorable service. We will never forget.” (Thank you so much for allowing me to be your officiant. You two have an amazing love!)
