What We Do

Your wedding ceremony is about the two of you: the very personal expression of your love story, your beliefs, your traditions, your relationship, and your path together. It is my role as a wedding officiant/celebrant to deeply listen to your ideas, needs, and desires, and then to synthesize the essence of who you are into a custom designed ceremony that is imbued with all that is uniquely you. I will be your guide and resource from the planning of your ceremony to officiating on your wedding day.

When two people unite their lives, it is a time for celebration. Whether you long for the traditional, envision something unconventional or anything in between, I can provide you with the wedding ceremony of your dreams. As your wedding officiant, I will guide and support you through the process of creating your custom wedding ceremony -- from our first meeting to your wedding day.

We will capture what is important to you: the words that need to be said and the rituals that hold meaning for you (and, of course, make sure that all the legal elements are there as well) and create a handcrafted ceremony that reflects who you are. Your lives will be joined legally and meaningfully. My role is to be of service to you, with no obligation to any organization or institution.

With extensive knowledge of the wedding customs from the world’s cultures, religions, and spiritual paths, I will help you fulfill your wedding dreams. No matter how you describe yourselves--secular, humanist, religious, nonreligious, interfaith, spiritual but not religious, or someone who is searching--you can have a personalized ceremony that will bring meaning to the moment and honor your rite of passage to marriage.

What people are saying

From the first meet­ing we had with Susan, we knew she would do a won­der­ful job with our cer­e­mony. She asked many ques­tions to allow her to really under­stand our love and our story and it truly showed. My hus­band and I are dif­fer­ent reli­gions and we wanted to include some tra­di­tions from both, but we wanted the theme of our cer­e­mony to be love, and she did just that. She worked closely with us to make sure every detail was per­fect and was extremely flex­i­ble when I had some last minute changes to be made. Whenever I had a ques­tion or sug­ges­tion, she was always quick to respond and always pro­fes­sional. This process can be extremely stress­ful at times, yet I felt cer­tain the cer­e­mony would be won­der­ful. We have lost loved ones in our fam­ily that should have been with us on our wed­ding day, and Susan did an absolutely lovely job hon­or­ing their mem­ory, just as we had asked. Throughout my recep­tion, at least 15 guests told us it was the best cer­e­mony they had ever been to! I can­not say enough won­der­ful things about my expe­ri­ence with Susan! She truly made our day per­fect.

Susan was absolutely amaz­ing! She really cap­tured the love of our rela­tion­ship within the cer­e­mony. She gra­ciously took the time to get to know my hus­band and I before writ­ing the most beau­ti­ful cer­e­mony for our wed­ding day. We highly rec­om­mend Susan!

Kiersten and Blake

Susan was FANTASTIC. Susan is an incred­i­bly open-minded, thought­ful, recep­tive and cre­ative offi­ciant. She helped my hus­band and I cre­ate a unique expe­ri­ence and spe­cial cer­e­mony that was sim­ply per­fect for us. But before this beau­ti­ful expe­ri­ence, Susan worked hard to get to know us, both as indi­vid­u­als and as a cou­ple. This wasn’t just a “job” for her, this was a spe­cial, cre­ative expe­ri­ence that clearly would be mean­ing­ful to ALLof us. Her heart was truly in the right place. She really wanted to under­stand us and what was impor­tant to us so that she could make some­thing impor­tant and beau­ti­ful for us! She wanted to cre­ate an expe­ri­ence that was per­fectly tai­lored to us, to our desires and to our needs. She lis­tened care­fully, con­tributed valu­ably and worked dili­gently to cre­ate a most mem­o­rable expe­ri­ence and wed­ding day for us. Susan was incred­i­bly effec­tive in lead­ing and help­ing us to cre­ate a lovely bal­ance between our spir­i­tual desires and reli­gious needs; and as a result, she came up with the best com­bi­na­tion and plan of all of our ideas for the wed­ding. She wel­comed us into her home and also, more impor­tantly, into her heart. I can’t rec­om­mend her enough. She gave us the expe­ri­ence of a life­time and will do the same for you!

Julie and Ben

Susan was the icing on the cake for our wed­ding day! She stepped in for us in a pinch and we couldn’t have been hap­pier with how she got to the root of our rela­tion­ship and under­stood our love. Incredible! Do not look any fur­ther than Susan! She will not dis­ap­point!
