Kind Words

"I had the honor of being invited to be the sole witness at a wedding Nansee performed. I was immediately at ease with Nansee's warmth, open heart and loving style. Her focus and presence created a lightness and reassuring space for the nervous couple. Her eloquent delivery of one of the most beautiful ceremonies I have ever heard was very moving. It was wonderful to experience Nansee's beautiful feminine strength fully grounding the ceremony that was clearly flowing from her heart."
