"Shannon did an amazing job. I was very nervous of the wedding, but I loved that she checked in on both Marc and I before hand. It made me feel like I had less to worry about. She was very thoughtful, and caring. She paid attention to the tiniest details of the ceremony. There were a few things I didn't think of, but she did. That made the wedding flow seamlessly and even more special. We didn't do a traditional wedding. We did a handfasting, and a small unity ceremony. You were wonderful! I hope you do many more weddings!" Review Submitted By Jennie and Marc (June 2016)
"Shannon's professionalism was superior. She took extra efforts to get to know us and successfully reflected our personalities and all the special details we requested in our evening garden wedding ceremony. Truly suburb!"

"Shannon officiated our wedding on 3/19/17, in the Carriage House at Gramercy Mansion. From our first meeting, we knew Shannon was the perfect choice. My partner and I were comfortable with Shannon right from the start. She was enthusiastic, supportive, and ensured that we had a personalized ceremony that truly celebrated us as a couple. After meeting with us (and with only a two week window to work with), Shannon drafted a ceremony script that was thoughtful, contemporary, and one that allowed us to incorporate our own personal touches. She was very responsive to our questions, and offered suggestions that made our wedding ceremony even more meaningful. We could not have been happier with the outcome. Shannon is on this earth to spread love. She is genuinely kind and upbeat; and we were very fortunate to have her as our officiant." Review submitted via Wedding Wire by Terry and Lynn (March 2017)
"From the very first phone call Shannon was warm, friendly and super helpful! We planned a majority of our wedding in 3 weeks so needless to say - we were a little stressed. Thankfully, we had Shannon. We met shortly after booking so she could get a feel of who we were as a couple before she started writing the ceremony. She also helped us work out some details we were unsure of. The entire process felt collaborative which helped ease the stress. She was really so much more than just our officiant. We couldn't be happier with how everything went. I highly recommend Shannon!!" Review submitted via Wedding Wire by Lindsay and James (May 2017)
"Shannon was our officiant through the Gramercy Mansion and we could not have had a better person. She was approachable, down to earth, responsive, and planned the perfect ceremony after inquiring about our preferences. Just lovely - thank you!"

"Our wedding planning was such a tumultuous affair until I came across Gramercy and Shannon. For the first time since beginning to plan my wedding I actually felt listened to! I recommend them to any and all overwhelmed brides looking for a lovely venue filled with wonderful helpful people."

"My Husband and I got married on 1/1/17 (New Years Day) at Gramercy Mansion by officiant Shannon Rice. From the first day I called to schedule our ceremony to the end of our ceremony Shannon was pleasantly responsive, informative, and helpful. She made sure that we were comfortable with how the ceremony would be performed by drafting a personalized ceremony script! We eloped and wanted everything about our ceremony to be as non-traditional as possible and Shannon made sure all our requests were met. Shannon is truly the best, we were very lucky to have her as our officiant for our special day!"

"Shannon was amazing! We had a small ceremony on about 4 weeks notice. As a coordinator, she didn't miss a beat. She was flexible, responsive, and thoughtful to our every need. As an officiant, she was so kind and fun. We would recommend her to anyone. "
