Mr. Rodney Noran was a delightful pleasure to work with as our casual officiant on our special day. He arrived early, arranged and set up planning with the photographer, and gave us a reassuring ease and performed a beautiful ceremony to commemorate our union in marriage. We would highly recommend his services for any couple whom would like a hassle free ceremony with a touch of eloquence and kindness. Thanks again! Chris and Natalia Martin
