“I’m glad I chose to work with the Lamar Wedding Center, Rita (officiant) is very professional and informative. They work with your budget and makes sure everything you want/need for your big day is a reality. The vows, sand ceremony, family prayer, ceremony music (I had a live guitarist-Andrew) and jumping of the broom everything was PERFECT & Rita even had the crowd laughing a little which helped keep my tears at bay. ”
