Sheri Thomson

Owner. Wedding Officiant , Notary, Blogger , Amateur Photographer 

I grew up as an Army brat and was blessed to travel throughout the US and Germany as a youth. I have 3 adult children, 2 grandchildren and the love and support of my husband who has helped me with weddings since I started my business with pictures and behind the scenes technology. He inspires and encourages me to do what I do.  I worked for the local Florida Courts for 10 years and other Fortune 500 Companies throughout my career. I have a love for performing weddings and helping unique couples create beautiful words to express how they feel and what their relationship means for their wedding day. It’s wonderful and refreshing to meet out of the box couples.

I especially love intimate destination weddings because I get to meet couples from all over the world.  I make a connection not only with the couple but also their families and guests.  They have less to worry about because it is usually only a handful of guests and almost always the most important people in their life. I have met some truly amazing people. I even get cake sometimes,… and I love cake.

I enjoy blogging, pinning and tweeting about all things wedding. My next love is photographing lovely couples on their wedding day. There are so many beautiful elements and unexpected moments in a wedding day.

Your wedding, no matter how big or small, will be special to me. Thank you for sharing such an important milestone with me. As always, I look forward to sharing your I DO’s.

I am one of two sons from parents who have been happily married for over 40 years. I was born in California, but consider myself a Florida native graduating from UCF with a finance degree. I am a financial advisor helping families prepare for retirement, college and many other savings goals.

I chose to join my wife with her business in 2012 to help make happy couples married couples. I have found that life is always better when you are joined with that special person who completes you as my wife completes me. I started out helping Sheri by taking photos for many of her weddings and look to help lighten the mood to relieve the stress from your wedding so it can be an enjoyable day.

My wife takes a great deal of pride and accomplishment in the weddings she creates and performs and as I join her business, I will strive to uphold her good name. I pledge to help make new ceremonies meaningful and enjoyable.

We are so appreciative of all of the hard work that you put into our ceremony. Your patience leading up to the wedding and your involvement before and after the wedding really means so much to us. The ceremony was so beautiful and you did an amazing job with your professionalism and presence. You looked amazing, just like everyone in the wedding and we just thank you so much for everything.-Mr. and Mrs. Woods

I want to thank Sheri for officiating a beautiful wedding. It was such a beautiful ceremony, that I couldn’t ask for anything more. I felt like I had known her for years, because she made us feel at ease for our day. I loved how she involved our family that was not able to make it, especially our kids that were overseas in school. I would recommend you to others anytime!!
Thank you so much Kimal & Naquaysha Matthews

I searched for a wedding officiant for a long time! We had a multi-cultural wedding and wanted an officiant that could perform a secular ceremony. We also had a second officiant that could perform the traditional Muslim ceremony. Even though we had two different ceremonies, it was important to us to make it look like one cohesive ceremony. Needless to say, our wedding ceremony was complicated and unique. Sheri coordinated with our second officiant and handled our complicated wedding with ease and professionalism. She had great communication with us during the whole wedding planning process. She provided options in terms of whether or not we wanted to say our own vows, how or if we wanted to do a unity ceremony, and much more. We ended up choosing not to say our own vows and instead chose one of the many ceremonies options she gave us to read. Sheri really put effort into creating a ceremony that spoke to us personally. She spent time getting to know us in order to create a personalized ceremony that would be very special for us. All in all, she made sure our day was special, catered to our unique needs, and made the whole process seamless and easy. We are truly blessed to have had her as our officiant.-Amber and Faraaz

Sheri was very comforting and soothing to be around during our ceremony which I needed that cause I had the jitters at first. I found Sheri by chance online when looking for a wedding officiant. Her website and Facebook page just stood out to me from the others. Then once I talked to her over the phone, it confirmed she was the one! Very knowledgeable on so many wedding vow styles and ceremonies. She was very detailed learning about my husband and I so she could help us the best she could. Brainstorming with me on how to make our dreams into a reality. Sheri was more than just an officiant, she was like a 2nd wedding planner, really! Which makes sense cause she has had so much experience with so many weddings. We couldn’t of been more blessed to meet and get to know this talented woman -Devine Hawley

Thank you so much for doing an awesome job for us! It was exactly what we wanted, no muss, no fuss! ;)-Amber

I had a destination wedding in Lake Mary, Florida and I found Sheri online. What a gem I found! I connected with her right away during our initial consultation. She personalized our ceremony to our liking and made our intimate ceremony feel grand! If you are having a destination or local wedding, I definitely recommend her! Keep up to excellent work Sheri-Christina Wimms

I was referred to Sheri by my niece & sister in law & it was the best match. Sheri is very personable, up front & to the point. I would definitely recommend her to perform for your special day. My wedding was planned in less than 2 months, so finding a venue & planning was stress-ful but the end results were beautiful & well worth it.-Cordelia
