Dear Kayelily,
I just wanted to let you know how much we truly enjoyed having you officiate our wedding. You made it so easy, helping us every step of the way ... from the vows down to the little details such as the music. I think it would have been disastrous without you and I must say your voice has a calming presence that put us at ease. We were both so nervous about everything being perfect but you thought of everything and the ceremony was absolutely beautiful, memorable and touching.
Thank you!
Trish and James

We LOVED Reverend Kayelily! From the moment we met with her I knew she was absolutely the right person for us. I loved the fact that she wanted us to have a personalized, and tailored ceremony to suit our beliefs and our lifestyles. She was very flexible and accommodating. Just over all great to work with! So glad she was the one to marry us on our big day!!!! Best of all she did a great job of keeping the groom calm, which is no small task!
