Where do I even begin? My now husband and I are not the same religion. This was a sensitive subject as I am Catholic and he is Protestant. Therefore, we agreed that we would have an Officiant marry us for our November beach (yes, beach) wedding. I emailed 5+ vendors the same email question: "What makes you special? Why should we chose you?" An exposing question to ask, but we knew that the officiant who cared would take the time to answer vs. directing us to their stellar online reviews. There was something about Paula's response that put me, the uptight bride, at ease. I remember saying to my husband: "I like her." We met Paula at a Starbucks and after a simple conversation we booked her. I was adamant on writing the ceremony and vows ourselves and wanted to make sure Paula was on board. She was beyond on board. If we wanted more guidance, she would give it. If we wanted, less she would offer support from a far. She gave me a library of resources and templates to work from and there in was born a very personal, very intimate ceremony. We were able to layer in moments of God, moments of love and some out of the box things all with Paula's blessing. (We had our dog as the ring bearer, some funny readings and even a song played in place of a reading). Paula came to our families' home for the rehearsal dinner. A 30+ room of loud Italians is not easy to handle -- but Paula did so with grace. I wanted someone to take our very special ceremony and execute it flawlessly and Paula did exactly that. People LOVED Paula. She just nailed it. And watching Paula get choked up during the song meant she felt the love too. If you're looking for a seasoned vet, who will give you as much or as little guidance as you need, someone who is willing to help make your ceremony your own, call Paula. She is a special individual who l o v e s love and all that she does. Paula, you're part of our family now. Thank you for making our ceremony the most talked about part of our wedding day!

Paula was truly amazing as a wedding officiant. She spoke beautifully and like a friend. From the first meeting we had with her we really felt like a friend we've known for a long time. We connected with her immediately and knew that we'd want her to marry us. We had a particularly different kind of wedding ceremony because we incorporated some hebrew readings and Jewish traditions. Paula was not only able to accommodate, but some of our more traditional guests were thoroughly impressed with her interpretations and readings. Just meet with Paula for 20 minutes and you'll not only want her to marry you, you'll want to be her friend for a very long time!

Robin at Heart and Soul Ceremonies was wonderful to work with. She was recommended by a family member in the wedding photography industry, due to her great experiences working with Robin in the past. From our initial inquiry, to supporting us in writing our own ceremony and vows, to the delivery and tact during the rehearsal and ceremony, everything was fantastic. Robin worked with us to edit and perfect our personally written ceremony, providing welcomed support and guidance along the way. Our guests are still talking about how personal and beautiful our ceremony was, as well as the professionalism and warmth exuded from Robin. As for logistics, Robin was quick to answer any questions and help us with the marriage license process, especially since we are currently living out of state. We highly recommend Heart and Soul Ceremonies!

If you've found Paula then it was meant to be! She is above and beyond amazing! She is unbelievably passionate about what she does and will help guide you every step of the way. I had absolutely no worries the day of our wedding. She exceeded our expectations. We felt as though we had known her our whole life and she added something very special to our wedding that just made it perfect. Anyone would be lucky to have her officiate their wedding. I cannot thank her enough.

I do not have enough room in this review to express how AMAZING reverend Paula Taylor is. She made the ceremony. She is not only our officiant, she is now our friend for life. She is someone who takes the time to really know you and your relationship, creating the intimate ceremony that will last in my heart forever ! When I was stressed at how disorganized my venue was at our rehearsal, she met me and my husband and told us she's going to "come in like a boss" and make sure it's runs so smooth that there was no need for an ounce of stress. (I mean come on, how cool is she?!) She is just the most genuine person I have ever met, this is not a job for her, she acts as if it is a privilege. When in actuality, it was OUR privilege to work with her. I want to give her 100 stars, but the knot made me stop at 5. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMENDED !! Thank you Paula !!

Paula was a blessing to have marry my husband and I. She couldn't have been more caring and sweet. My husband and I at the time were going through some hardships that life was handing us. Paula gave us a helping hand through all of it. She didn't just marry us, she was apart of the marriage. If you have the honor of Paula being the officiant of your wedding, I promise that it will be that much better. She has the most kind and understanding soul. I can look back at that day as the absolute best day of my life and much of it was due to Paula's remarkable services.

Could not be happier with our choice of Paula from Heart and Soul Ceremonies. She took the time to meet in person and provided us with many options for different types of ceremonies which was so helpful. We wanted an Offiiant who would make our Ceremony the most important part of our wedding. Her experience and professionalism helped make our ceremony best part of our day.
