“My daughter’s wedding would not have been the same without Hannah, our ceremony officiant. She added joy and calmness to what has to be a bit of a hectic time for any mother… Hannah honors a breadth of spiritual perspectives in the co-created ceremonies she leads which tells of the breadth of her spiritual experience. I would recommend her to anyone wanting a meaningful ceremony for any of the most important aspects/events of one’s life.” – Lois Clement

I like to keep a file of each wedding I perform with a copy of the marriage license,  the ceremony, the check and a photo
