Marrying Two Amazing Women
It was an honor to officiate this gay couple's wedding in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. It was not my first lesbian wedding but definately my most memorable as both Chris and Mimi really took the time to share with me, their hearts. And they have BIG hearts! They have inspired me in many ways and I am so grateful for that.
Thank you, Mimi and Chris, for a wonderful evening and your kind words.
"Stephanie went above and beyond her responsibility of being our wedding officiant. From the get-go, Stephanie was eager to learn about us individually and as a couple. She was genuine, caring and enthusiastic and took the time to understand what we wanted for our ceremony. We spoke with her many times over the course of 6 months—we even had a zoom session with her—and sent her our “How we met” stories along with a description of what “marriage meant to us.” From these writings and conversations, Stephanie crafted a beautiful wedding service for us—one that was heartfelt and spot on.
Stephanie has a beautiful voice and agreed to sing “our song” for us as we walked down the aisle. She spent time and energy learning this song, practicing it and then recording it for us. My wife and I both had chills as we listened to Stephanie’s gorgeous voice sing the lyrics.
I cannot tell you how highly I recommend Stephanie. If you want someone who will go above and beyond, who will make your ceremony extra special and who will take the time to get to know you both as individuals and as a couple, Stephanie is IT! We invited Stephanie to hang out with us after the ceremony, as we felt like she was part of our family.
As I said, Stephanie also sings and has an amazing voice and can accommodate music requests. Do not hesitate to hire Stephanie—she is the best! And, if I ever get married again, I will definitely use her. 8-)
