We are so thrilled to have had Susanne as the officiant for our intimate wedding! She crafted a ceremony that was touching, personal, and truly the center of our day. We could not have asked for a warmer person to invite into a day that otherwise consisted of family only. From the first time we met with Susanne a few months before, she put us at ease and thoroughly explained the process of building a ceremony, giving us options for what we might want to include. We wanted our family to feel like they were involved in our union, not just witnessing it. She suggested rituals like a ring warming and readings done by our mothers. Although neither of us are practicing, both sets of parents are, so we wanted a ceremony that walked that line in a way that made all parties comfortable. Susanne immediately knew what would work for us, and once we read her first draft we knew we were in good hands. Leading up to the day, we all worked together to put everything together – our poorly worded suggestions were turned into beautifully written parts of our finished ceremony. She was very flexible, making changes up until the night before. I would recommend her to anyone, and I can’t picture our day with anybody else. Thank you, Susanne!

Dear Susanne,

We wanted to thank you so much for the beautiful ceremony that you gave us. Honestly, the rest of our wedding was pretty hectic and my memories of the reception already blur together, but our ceremony will stand out in my memory for the rest of my life. You made us feel so comfortable as you guided us through the ceremony, that we were able to really feel present in the moment. We can’t thank you enough for your heartfelt words during the ceremony and for your kindness and patience as we planned everything out in the last few weeks before the wedding. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful and personal ceremony. We both agree that choosing you as our officiant was one of the best wedding planning decisions that we made!

Dear Susanne – I am the grandmother of Trisha who you married on July 27th. I wanted to thank you for one of the most meaningful weddings I’ve ever attended. You spoke right from the heart directly to the bride and groom and with such ease and compassion. You also gave credit to their family and friends who supported them. I was very impressed with the ceremony and the way you brought yourself to it – like you knew Trish and Kurt forever!

From Polly (Grandmother of the Bride)

Hi Susanne- I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the beautiful and perfect job you did with our ceremony. As I’m sure you noticed, it was incredibly emotional for the two of us, as well as our families and many guests. We received compliments from everyone regarding how unique, personal, and beautiful the ceremony was. Everyone loved the ring warming, the handfasting, and even the readings we selected. They all commented on your calming demeanor and poise as well. It has been such a pleasure working with you – we truly would not have been able to do it without you (I’ve already thanked Linda for introducing us). The day felt like a whirlwind passing by, but there are moments from the ceremony that are frozen forever in my mind.
