I am a local celebrant that will make your wedding ceremony fun.

Some word from one of my couples.

Venita makes you feel like an old friend the minute you meet her. She takes the time to get to know both sides of the relationship and is so giving with her time. Delightful and professional to deal with from planning through to panicking before walking up the aisle. Venita keeps you at ease, even went so far as to speak in portugeuse, knowing some people couldn't speak English at our ceremony. 100% highly recommended to anyone seeking a lovely celebrant who will make your special day amazing. Thank you so much Venita.
