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!
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!
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!
