  1. Hey! Let me know if you need help with the music/musician for the ceremony. I sing weddings here and there (Catholic and non-denom) and have other musically inclined friends if you’re having trouble finding musicians/singers. Facebook me if you’d like! Hope you’re well!

    • Abby I completely forgot you have a beautiful voice and sing! I’m sorry I wish I would have reached out to you directly! I’ll call the church in the next few weeks and will Facebook you soon!
