We were just reminiscing about our wedding (nearly three years ago!) and we thought about how important you were to making that special day perfect. We hope that you are well and wanted to send you a quick “hello!” from Dallas, where we moved a few months ago. Here’s a recent picture with one of our two dogs. Warmest wishes and thank you for everything

Leslie helped to create our ceremony, and she made it run smoothly and effortlessly. My husband and I first met with Leslie about six months in advance of the ceremony, and she immediately drafted up some wonderful remarks—which were tailored to reflect us as a couple. For example, she incorporated facts about how we met, and the connection we both have to literature, which was particularly appropriate, as the wedding was literary-themed. Her attention to detail and her language use were both exquisite, as were her recommendations about how and when to incorporate readings. We wanted to interweave a couple of poems (as well as a multi-denominational blessing) into the ceremony, and were a little flummoxed in thinking about how to make the whole thing flow well—and not feel choppy or scattered. Leslie had terrific recommendations about where to place particular readings; in the end, the ceremony moved along effortlessly.

Leslie was so considerate, composed, kind, and thoroughly professional. She went above and beyond in preparing and reviewing the vows—and in finalizing details with us before the rehearsal and the wedding day. During the rehearsal, as well as on the wedding day, she made sure that my husband and I were both feeling calm and comfortable.

I loved collaborating with her, and think so highly of the work that she did. I can’t say enough about her dedication to us as clients, her work ethic--and her graceful, thoughtful presence.

AL

I found Leslie through all of her glowing online reviews; the reviews are very well deserved.

Leslie made our day truly special and memorable. She is a beautiful person who cares deeply about making the event special and memorable. Everyone at the ceremony complimented us on what an amazing job Leslie did. Thank you, Leslie for everything! Your role in our ceremony will be remembered always!

We got married just last week and I cannot speak highly enough of the amazing job Leslie did as officiant of our wedding! From everything starting from our initial conversations to the day of, Leslie was very responsive and professional in all communications. She drafted wedding vows for us and gave us the opportunity to review before our ceremony. She added so many personal touches from our lives that meant so much to us. We were nervous about some bad weather as our ceremony was outside and she completely put us at ease and suggested a few options for change if needed. If you are looking for someone to lead your ceremony we HIGHLY recommend Leslie!!!!!!! You will not be disappointed and on the contrary beyond amazed!!!
