Shyamala was absolutely amazing at our wedding! We could not have been happier! Finding the perfect officiant was very important to us. We wanted someone who would take the time to get to know us and our story and make the ceremony personal- and Shyamala did exactly that. She was even more amazing than we could have asked for. She reached out to us several times and truly got to know us and our love story. The ceremony was so personal and she made it exactly what we dreamed of. Not to mention that after the wedding, so many of our guests told us how personable Shyamala was with them prior to the ceremony. She engaged with the guests and made them laugh and feel welcome to the ceremony. We 100% recommend Shyamala for your wedding ceremony. She will spend time to get to know you and create the ceremony exactly how YOU want (she will even ask you questions you had not thought about yet and set your mind at ease).
Shyamala was the perfect choice to perform our ceremony at the Brazilian Room. She crafted and delivered the perfect ceremony for us and several people commented on how beautiful and true to the two of us it was. Working with her was an absolute pleasure every step of the way. She really has a talent for asking the right questions and sensing who you are as individuals and as a couple, then reflecting that in your ceremony. She has curated a wonderful selection of readings and rituals to give you some ideas for things to incorporate in your ceremony, but is also skilled at bringing in any other ideas you might have. She sent us a draft of our ceremony two weeks out (which made me cry the first time I read it, tip: don't read it at work) then worked with us from there to make it perfect. Afterwards, she gave us a printed copy of our beautiful ceremony to look back at forever. We can't recommend her enough.
Shyamala helped make our big day unforgettable. She listened to our needs and crafted a ceremony that truly reflected us and our story. Our guests were blown away by the ceremony, with personal rituals like a "ring warming" that was unforgettable! She was wonderful!
Shyamala was absolutely great to work with! We talked to 4 different officiants before our wedding and she was certainly the most "real" and sincere one. You can tell she truly loves what she is doing and puts all her heart and soul into it. She took a lot of time to get to know us and our story. That allowed her to customize the ceremony to our needs and make it in a very personal manner. We felt that a lot of the other officiants have their standard agenda that they do and are not willing to change it up much. But Shyamala wrote a ceremony that was tailored to us. She allowed us to provide enough input and always guided us effectively. We loved that perfect balance of being open to our ideas but also ensuring that the whole ceremony would work out as a whole. Our guests loved the ceremony and some asked if she was a friend of ours since she put so much heart and warmth in it. We couldn't have been more happy with choosing her!
Shyamala is a master officiant - her thoughtfulness, deep knowledge of different traditions, and attention to detail made our ceremony everything we hoped for. She worked with us to bring together the different stories that shaped our relationship and crafted a ceremony that suited us perfectly. We were so thrilled that she agreed to officiate our wedding and was available to do so (she's in high demand!), as we have witnessed multiple ceremonies that she's led - each one unique and profound. You won't find a better or more skilled officiant.
