Stephanie Cole-Hiltz is a busy working woman, mother of 2 elementary age children and a wife of 15 years. She heard about my services through a friend and reached out. Her goal was to surprise her loving husband with a marriage renewal, on the grounds of Hotel Cala Luna in Langosta, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. Like all of my surprise ceremonies, they are led to believe the are having a photo session on the beach to celebrate their anniversary and then... a ceremony is setup in a beautiful location with me standing there to facilitate the renewing of their vows. It was beautiful and Jon was super happy. I played the song that they danced to on their wedding day so they could relive that moment in front of their children. I truly appreciate being a part of these special events and I am so happy for Steph and Jon.

You know the saying, when you want something done right… in this case hiring Stephanie was the best thing we could have done. She was professional the whole way through and super accommodating. She wrote up a beautiful ceremony personalizing it to our relationship in so many ways. The vow renewal we did was a surprise from me to my husband and Stephanie made sure to roll that into the ceremony and keep everything hush-hush until I got to surprise him. We did a sand ceremony and I loved what she said while we created our sand bottle. She always made sure each element of our renewal went seamlessly from activity to activity. I 100% recommend her as an officiant, xoxo
