Raves & Testimonials from Couples I have had the honor of marrying!
Michele & John Carden, Eustis, Fl. Thank you so much for officiating our wedding. You went above and beyond what we expected. We feel so blessed to have found you to help us during this special time in our lives. We appreciate all the extra details like the keepsake book to remember our wedding day. Thank You Again, Sincerely.
John & Karen, The Villages, Fl. What a great experience! We expected planning our wedding would be a bit stressful - but not with the help and resources from Ida-May! From our first meeting, we knew we were in good hands. She provided ideas for the ceremony that we had not seen or heard before, such as the Wedding/Love Letter Box (we AND our guests LOVED it). The resources she provided were so helpful... from the best florist (Miss Daisy's Flowers & Events in Lessburg) best bakeries, to bridal accessories. And it was almost like we wrote our own vows, as Ida-May helped us with all the right words. Couldn't be happier with our wedding day and all the preparation (made easy)!!! We were very fortunate to find Ida-May to perform our "custom" ceremony!! Thank you so much!
Alyssa and Josh, Tennessee Thank you so much Rev. Ida-May! I had many of my Aunts, Uncles, and family members say that they had never been to a ceremony that touched them the way that our ceremony touched them. It was very powerful and I truly believe that it could not of been more perfect. I am so happy we didn’t write our vows because us being the cry babies we were, we wouldn’t of been able to make it through them! Thank you for everything!
Heather & Brandon We will be sad to see you go and we are honored to share such a special day with you. Brandon and I are so excited for our wedding and I can't thank you enough for all of the advice you've given and all of the information you shared with us. You have really made the process simple and I'm happy we were able to design every aspect of the ceremony. It will definitely be memorable :). I hope you continue to officiate in Florida because any couple is lucky to have you be a part of their day. I'm sure Leesburg will treat you well! Good luck packing and we will see you very soon! Best regards,
Amanda & Jason Rev. Ida-May, Jason and I would like you to know how happy we were with our service on April 9,2014. Thank you so very much for making our day so special. We would recommend you to anyone we know that plans on getting married. Thank you again. Lots of Love

Brandy & David Where to begin with Rev. Ida-May Hanson...Outstanding is an understatement for the services she provided to us. She made our day so smooth and so special for us and provided great ideas for making our services that much more unique. As a blended family with a unique ceremony of it's own included Rev. Ida-May really made our son feel as though he was a gracious part of our ceremony and truly helped us prove to him how special he really is to us both. I highly recommend her for any services you may need. She was very professional, very organized and very punctual. You never had to question where or what she was doing or when. She was patient, helpful and an absolute perfect fit for making our day amazing. Thank You again Rev. Ida-May!
Jennifer & Justin Rev. Ida-May was wonderful! Our entire experience with Happy Ever After was wonderful. From our first call, to meeting with Ida-May, having her five us so many options & suggestions so that our day could truly be "Our Special Day", right down to the ceremony, everything was perfect. Ida May understood exactly what we wanted our ceremony to be and helped make that happen. We are a blended family and wanted the kids to be included in the ceremony and Ida-May included them in such a way that the kids felt comfortable and it conveyed our love and commitment, not just for one another but for our family as well. Thank You!

Emily & Adam Ida-May, Thank you so very much for the amazing job you did for our wedding. You were so organized and calm! People were so touched by our ceremony and the words that were spoken by you, not to mention Adam and I. I can't thank you enough for getting everyone prepared and ready to go. It couldn't have gone any better! I know you don't get much return business (at least I hope not true) but I will recommend you to others if the opportunity should arise. Thanks again!
Teresa & Terry Terry and I had the wonderful pleasure to be married by Rev. Ida-May Hanson on August 31, 2012. She was definitely a blessing to us. She gave us the most special suggestions and tools to help make our wedding day feel like a dream come true. Rev. Ida-May has such a warm and beautiful charismatic personality about her that made our ceremony so complete and her guidance made us feel completely at ease and able to enjoy our celebration of love for each other. We are so very thankful to have found Rev. Ida-May for our Wedding Day!
Jen & Chris Ida-May married Chris and I in July. She was wonderful all the way through the process. I really appreciated her guidance and patience as we took our walk down the aisle!
Ashley & Aaron Ida-May married us on June 8th, 2012 and we couldn't have imagined a better ceremony. She was so helpful with any questions or requests we had and provided us with many useful resources. She really made our ceremony perfect for us and EXACTLY the way we pictured it to be. Also very organized and professional, which put us at ease because we knew we could count on her to do a wonderful job! Thanks again Ida-May!!! :)
Erika & Ben Rev. Ida-May Hanson did a great job of officiating our June 9th, 2012. When we first met with her she put us at ease. She was very professional and provided us with a lot of information on things that we hadn't even thought about or considered for the ceremony! The day of the ceremony she was very punctual and organized. She tailored the ceremony specifically to our liking. She also provided us with a lovely keepsake booklet containing all our ceremony words. She was awesome!
Billie & Dave Thank you so much for working with us! The ceremony was perfect :) We couldn't have asked for a better person to marry us! Do you mind sending me the picture of us with you? Thanks again!
Ashley & Stuart I just wanted to thank you so very much for the beautiful ceremony you provided for us. You helped my husband and I start our wonderful lives together.
Vera & Nick Dear Ida-May, A loving note can barely express how you have added to our happiness. We would like to send you our sincerest thanks for your thoughts, your prayers and your help, as well as your presence in our lives. Thank You!
Kristine & Du Wayne Ida-May performed our ceremony on May 19, 2012. It was such a wonderful ceremony, beautiful, and relaxing. She did an outstanding job keeping everyone informed and on top of what they needed to do. Thank you for being part of our wonderful day.
Jennifer & Damon We had the pleasure of having Rev. Ida-May Hanson officiating at our wedding. Ida-May was so great to work with. She was very, friendly, and easy to talk to and was very accommodating to our wishes for our wedding. She was very professional at our rehearsal and ceremony and made it a memorable experience. She had great communication through phone calls and emails and she even gave us a beautiful ceremony packet to remember our special day. I would definitely recommend her!
Faith & Andre Dear Mrs. Hanson, I don't even know where to begin. This journey of ours started with all the basic plans, flowers, cake, dresses and photography. These things seemed easy compared to the task of finding someone that we felt comfortable enough with to have married us on our special day. We knew from the first meeting when you invited us into your home to meet and get to know one another. You were very, friendly, and open and we connected from the start ...the thing that clinched it for us was when you reached out for a hug at the end of our first visit. We knew you were the one. I had concerns before the meeting because of not having a family minister of our own we thought things might feel awkward and cold. You made our day so special. The words you spoke at our ceremony were perfect for us as a couple and it is a memory that we will never forget. We will always be grateful for your kindness. Thank you and we will recommend you to anyone who ever needs a wonderful minister for an amazing event. Best Regards!
Amy & Tim Thank you so much for being a part of our day and performing our wedding ceremony, 2nd time around and incorporating our children! We received so many wonderful compliments on the ceremony. Thank you so very much! You are a sweet and wonderful person and we are so glad we had the opportunity to meet you.
Melanie & Marc Many thanks to Rev. Hanson for making our private elopement ceremony special! She provided all the things that were needed to make our special day memorable. We highly recommend her to be your wedding officiant. You will be most pleased with the manner in which she carries out even the most simple of ceremonies. God Bless you Rev. Hanson! Warmest Regards
Andrea & Shane Thank you Ida-May for the intimate wedding ceremony you provided for us. You helped make our day complete!
Carloynn & Thomas My husband and I really enjoyed working with Rev. Ida-May :) I like how she gave us options on the type of ceremony we could have and that she let us mix and match from them. I also enjoyed how she worked with us online through e-mail to get stuff together and done for the ceremony. I would highly recommend her to anyone that is looking to have a simply, yet sweet and intimate ceremony!
