“Ivy you were lovely! Our evening could not have been more perfect.... Thank you so much.” Jill & Robert
"Ivy officiated a lovely ceremony for us. She was so accommodating to ensure the ceremony went exactly how we wanted it to. She is incredibly knowledgeable. It was so special for us that she was willing to allow our brother in law to co-officiate, she sat down with him and made sure he felt as prepared as possible. It was the most perfect day!" Emma & Tony
