We loved our wedding officiate! She did a wonderful job with our ceremony and was very warm and welcoming to our guests. She put into words the story of our love and communicated really well what we feel for each other. She honored our beliefs and heritage and was well spoken. Ashleigh is a very unique individual and she really brings so much creativity to the ceremony and we are so happy to have a ceremony that is not like anyone else's. We highly recommend Ashleigh for any ceremony or couple, but especially for those who are seeking a more individualized and creative experience!
We had a small 40 person wedding at a small Inn in Boonsboro, MD on March 14th, 2014. We did a handfasting and Ashleigh made a custom handfasting cord for us that was absolutely beautiful!!! She was really cool and our ceremony was light hearted and funny and she made really funny off handed comments for graceful transitions through awkward moments like when my husband said "I do" too soon and when I got the handfasting cord stuck on my bracelet and things like that. I would recommend her for anyone who wanted a really cool, thoughtful great wedding minister!
