I’m often asked, what is the first step to planning a wedding, in my opinion it’s your DATE then VENUE then the TIME of your ceremony.  So, if you have no clue where you want to have your ceremony or reception, I have compiled my personal list of places to consider getting married at.  Plus I’m happy to share it with you!  Of course, I do so with the hopes that you will reach out to me again to see if I am available to Officiate your wedding.   🙂      BUT before you go, should you decide to contact one of the VENDORS OR VENUES, please tell them I referred you, but even more important than that is, should you have to leave a message, PLEASE leave as much information as possible… besides your name and phone number.. provide the DATE you want to get married or a couple of dates if you are flexible, otherwise, you might not get a return phone call.  I on the other hand will call you back no matter what.  🙂     If you choose to call them PLEASE tell them Kelly with Amor Ceremonies referred you!  🙂
