Elena is a thorough, creative and conscientious marriage celebrant. In our ceremony, she ensured that everything went smoothly and on point. Our friends and family commented on how fantastic the ceremony was, including terms such as: entertaining, fun, emotional, unique and very special. This, however, took a lot of preparation. Elena took us through the journey of the marriage celebration, explaining the legals plus items and sections of the ceremony in detail. She provided creative suggestions (such as music, readings, rituals), while ensuring to accommodate our personal requests and vision of the event. She was patient and flexible in working through difficult interstate schedules and a condensed wedding timeline. At all times Elena was very professional and amicable, making us feel comfortable. She took time to meet with us for a rehearsal and was well equipped to ensure the ceremony was audible and visible to everyone. We really felt we could leave all aspects of the ceremony in her hands, confident that she would take care of it with attention to detail.
You know when you recap your wedding day in your head and think ‘oh maybe I could have done something here or there…’ Well our memories of our ceremony are the most special and heart-warming part of our wedding day and without hesitation this warm feeling we have for our wedding ceremony has much to do with the trust we put in Elena. And we wouldn’t change any part of it! We highly recommend Elena not only for her demonstrated abilities as a celebrant but for her upbeat energy which is embodied through all stages of the ceremony and its preparation. Thank you very much, Elena!
