Stephanie was recommended by a wedding florist to officiate a marriage ceremony in 2017. She was well known in the area from performing as a singer all around Tamarindo. After her first ceremony, she was in love and now officiates for many desitnation weddings.

You will laugh and cry when you hear her speak the words she has written just for you.

"Anyone can get married, but to stay married and honor your committments is truly special. I learn a lot from the couples that I perform renuptuals for".
