You are right in the middle of one of the busiest, most memorable days of your life.

Imagine taking a moment to stop, breathe, and be in gratitude for all the reasons you're there.
My passion is creating personal, meaningful ceremony and I love performing weddings. I like making a connection with guests and I really enjoy hearing how much they enjoyed the ceremony. My response is always, "Thank you. I love doing this!" and their reply is always, "I can tell. The service was so meaningful." I see the greatest part of my job as facilitating an experience that allows everyone to feel connected and present, especially the couple. I really enjoy getting to know the couples I work with and helping them to be present to each other during their ceremony, not stressed and worried about remembering things. Making certain the ceremony flows seamlessly is my job, not theirs. I coordinate with all managers, vendors, readers, ushers and the bridal party to be sure everything goes smoothly. I subtly direct everyone during the ceremony so no one needs to remember anything and everything looks natural. I love meeting with couples and hearing their stories. I love watching the transformation as they walk in unsure and walk out relaxed and excited about a ceremony that truly reflects who they are as a couple. I love watching their faces when they see one another at the end of the aisle. I love watching them connect on a heart and soul level during their vows and personal words. I am an ordained, interfaith minister and I honor all belief systems. That means I encourage others to find their own Truth and live it, rather than preaching mine. I believe every wedding should be as unique as the couple getting married. For couples who are spiritual, not religious, I help them create a spiritual tone in their ceremony with or without the mention of God. For non-theist or non-traditional couples, I help them create a ceremony that is grounded by their love story. Many of my clients come from mixed family backgrounds and I help them create a common experience that honors their beliefs and heritage.

Sandy was outstanding! She put together a beautiful, secular ceremony for us that conveyed our values. Sandy was also extremely flexible and supportive when my mother in law fell ill in the months before our wedding. My MIL ended up being in a wheelchair for the duration of our wedding, and Sandy was able to rework our ceremony so that we could still include my MIL. I cannot recommend Sandy highly enough! Her kindness, flexibility, and positive attitude made our day!

We sought Sandy's services because we wanted a secular wedding ceremony. From the start, Sandy was responsive and helpful. We felt so comfortable when we met with her to put together our personal ceremony. Throughout the year if I had any questions (or worries!) Sandy was quick to put me at ease, which was wonderful once wedding planning started getting stressful!
As for the ceremony, there aren't enough words to say how amazing it went. We had a crowd of about 160 and every one of them told my husband and I how special the ceremony was, how they'd never seen a ceremony so personal, and a few even asked if Sandy was our close friend, saying the 3 of us looked so connected during the ceremony. It was very neat to have guests remember pieces of the ceremony that felt special to them as well.
Overall, I know the day wouldn't have been as perfect as it was without Sandy. I would recommend her a hundred times over to anyone looking for a traditional OR non-traditional wedding!

From start to finish Sandy was fantastic. My wife and I had many questions and concerns about the proceedings, how it would look, what we should do, and Sandy not only answered those question and many more, but made us feel comfortable. If you are seeking a caring, responsive, professional and overall wonderful Officiant for your wedding we hope you look no further than Sandy. There is none any better in our mind and will highly recommend Sandy to other over and over again.

We had so many of our guest compliment us on how beautiful our ceremony was, and Sandy is the one we have to thank for that. She included my husband's and my children into the ceremony which was so touching and heartfelt. The children loved that they were included in the ceremony and we will always cherish the memories and that moment of our families offically joining together. Sandy has the best personality and is very professional. She listened to what we wanted and exceeded our expectations. Thank you Sandy for helping to make our day very special and beautiful!

Sandy walked us through the entire process of creating a personal outline for our ceremony. Everything was written out for us in our meetings prior and at the rehearsal, so we didn't have to worry about it on the wedding day. She was well-spoken, down to earth, upbeat, and charming. Our guests literally gave us compliments on how good the ceremony was performed. Sandy also walked us through the knot tying ritual, which my wife and I wanted to include. I would highly recommend Sandy for a wedding. She went above and beyond for us. Thank you Sandy :)

I requested an online quote for the elopement ceremony as my husband and I just wanted a small, intimate wedding with low stress. The price was very reasonable for our elopement ceremony. Sandy is also very quick to respond to emails and is always offering additional help. She is professional and organized. You can really tell she loves helping people and bringing them together on their wedding day. She is pretty flexible, especially with elopements on weekday evenings. Overall, the value of her services are above and beyond. I would definitely recommend her to anyone interested in finding an officiant. Thank you so much Sandy!

Sandy did a fantastic job at our wedding. We were particularly pleased at how she took the time to truly get to know us (how we met, a little bit about us, etc.) and integrated this information into a personalized ceremony. She guided us through the entire process of how our ceremony would flow and gave us some ideas to choose from for certain pieces. The day of the ceremony Sandy even guided us through some items like the sand ceremony which we wanted but did not know entirely what we were supposed to do. The result was a beautiful, personalized ceremony without any stress or anxiety! We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Ceremonies by Sandy.
