She welcomes you to relax and enjoy your special day, knowing that your officiant brings a peaceful and professional presence to your ceremony. Choosing Hannah as your officiant assures that your ceremony is created with joy and performed with dignity.

You can choose a non-denominational, spiritually inclusive, inter-faith, civil, traditional or non-traditional wedding ceremony, vow renewal, or commitment ceremony.

Hannah Desmond of Heart Light Weddings was our Officiant for our wedding.
Hannah was caring and very professional from the first moment we spoke on the phone.
The time she took to get to know my husband and I helped us to choose the perfect ceremony.
My husband and I thought as well as many family and friends who commented on how touching and yet fitting for us personally it was. Hannah's consistency and caring nature made for such comfort she too felt like part of the family. I highly endorse Hannah Desmond for your wedding, renewal of vows or any other event which may require her spiritual service.

Hannah was wonderful to work with. My hubby and I were very laid back, so I left it up to Hannah to select our ceremony for us. What she chose was lovely and meaningful without being cheesy. Her husband Tom came along and provided music for the ceremony. Our day would not have been as successful or relaxed without Hannah and Tom. Thank you both!

Hannah was the perfect officant for our wedding. She was courteous and helpful from the get go and the ceremony choices we had to select from were loving, original and had the exact sentiments we wanted to express to one another. She arrived in plenty of time before the wedding to introduce herself and run through the agenda and even offered to drop off our marriage license! If you're looking for a heartfelt, unique ceremony with options to personalize, Heart Light Weddings is the way to go.

We planned a simple, intimate wedding at a mountain home and had the wonderful pleasure of including Hannah Desmond as our officiant. Hannah was so easy to work with and made planning-at-a-distance nearly effortless. She was responsive to calls and emails and provided several wonderful script options for our ceremony. When we combined scripts and did a little editing to make it "our own", she received it gladly and did an excellent job of delivering the words and the sentiment during the ceremony. We must also extend a very special thank you to her husband Tom for participating as our musician- the guitar instrumentals lent such a perfect ambiance to the small ceremony and downloading and learning "our song" was above and beyond. I would highly recommend Hannah, Tom and Heart Light Weddings if you are considering getting married in the Asheville, NC area. I wasn't sure I could find someone to come to our location in Marshall, but they were more than willing to do so. It took so much off my mind to know that I could rely on their expertise, caring and attention to detail. Thank you!

I couldn't have been happier with Rev. Hannah Desmond for my wedding. She did an amazing job as our officiant for our wedding on 10/20/12. I don't normally write reviews unless I'm completely satisfied and she exceeded my expectations to say the least. I STRONGLY recommend her to other brides searching for an officiant. (I had many wedding guests come up to me and tell me that they want her contact information to pass out to their friends who recently got engaged and are planning their weddings.) Thank you Rev. Desmond for making our day special! :)

Hannah wrote and delivered a beautiful ceremony. She was also accommodating from our first meeting with her through to the days leading up the event when she agreed to stay in the mountains overnight in order to attend our rehearsal and ceremony the next day. She was also very flexible on the wedding day, delaying her departure by two hours as we waited for the rain to pass before beginning the ceremony. She is a calming presence that my husband and I and our family and friends truly enjoyed have share in our special event.

Hi Steven and Christine,
Thanks for the wonderful review. It was a great pleasure being part of your ceremony. I loved the little bridge covered with rose petals, the young girls putting the flower petals in the stream at just the right moment, the look on your face when Steven surprised you with your new ring and, of course, feeling the love between you. Brightest Blessings. Hannah

We enjoyed having Hannah Desmond as our officiant. She was very professional, kind and helped me weeks before the wedding with any questions or concerns I had. She sent me different ceremonies to go over prior to the wedding and let us choose which best suit our needs and wants. The hand blessing she offered is beautiful and our wedding ceremony was a complete success with her help! Thank you Hannah for all you did.

Rev. Hannah was fantastic. We had our wedding at a beautiful mountain cabin near Asheville NC. We met with Rev. Hannah and knew she was the perfect minister for our wedding. Her book, The Wedding Journey, helped us plan our wedding without a hitch and provided the perfect wording for the ceremony. Jen and I wrote our own vows. I cried as Jen read her vows to me and so did Rev. Hannah. She was incredibly present during the ceremony. Everyone in our family loved her and we will be keeping in touch. Thanks Rev. Hannah for perfect wedding memories.

I waited years before choosing to marry and I knew that this event would be the event of my lifetime. It was a time of gathering of old and new friends and family. I called Hannah at Heart Light Weddings for a consultation. Hannah took time to consult with me over the phone; she met with me personally and later with my fiance and I together. Her counsel was absolutely beyond what I believe to be the norm. She has written a book about weddings and gave me a copy. Both my fiance and I read it and then met with her together. She (and the book) are awesome. My event was a rather large affair. Hannah performed the ceremony beautifully. It was important to us that we be involved in the writing of our vows and Hannah accommodated us beautifully. So many of my guests commented that they felt her light energy directly to us. I would recommend Hannah to perform any wedding, whether it be a large affair or a quiet, intimate, small affair in your home.

We were twice blessed at our wedding as Rev. Hannah performed a flawless ceremony and Rev. Tom provided the music for the processional and recessional and an original composition during the ring warming ceremony. It was a joy working with Rev. Hannah. We visited with her at her home in Asheville and got to know her. It was like having a good friend perform our ceremony. Her knowledge of the wedding procedures was helpful during the rehearsal and her calm voice helped me overcome the jitters as I prepared for the ceremony. Rev. Hannah lead me through a short breathing exercise that calmed and grounded me. The experience of having her as part of our wedding was a true blessing.

Reverend Hannah Desmond did such a fantastic job for our wedding! The ceremony she performed was gorgeous, personable and she made us laugh during to ease the tension. She was also available to meet with us and answer all of our questions even before we had officially hired her. Thank you so much Heart Light Weddings for providing such a kind and wonderful person to be a part of our special day!!

Hanna was a the perfect officient for our New Orleans wedding in the Westin over looking the MS River. We are a non-religious laid back couple and she was exactly the type of officient we were looking for. Her available scripts we could choose from or combine and make our own were absolutely fabulous. We wanted something very elegant but simple and non-religious which is exactly what we were able to put together from her options. Our guests loved the wording of the ceremonly so much that some of them actually asked us for a copy of the wording. We were very pleased with the overall service and would highly recommend her.

We were very happy with the ceremony performed and being able to have someone with a spiritual base perform our ceremony without having to join a church to do so

We enjoyed having Hannah as our officiant. There was a slight mix up between who would be overseeing our wedding, but it was handled professionally and continued without delay. She answered our questions promptly and helped us with suggestions and advice. We were very pleased with the service that we got and could not ask for anything more.

We appreciated Hannah's style and energy as the celebrant for our wedding ceremony on September 1st. She provided us with a copy of her book, which had several ceremonies to chose from. She also provided us with other ceremonies via email that we could modify to suit our own style and taste. We ended up writing our own ceremony based closely on all of the materials Hannah gave us. Would recommend to others in the future -- and already have!

Hannah was a very sweet, unique lady. I loved the ceremony that she & I came up with. My only complaints pertain to the actual day...it seemed like she hadn't practiced at all, and I guess I ended up feeling like we were just another one of her many weddings. Maybe my expectations were too high.

He showed up in a dirty suit and tennis shoes. He carried a notebook and had no bible. He was almost late to the service, I was walking down and he was still in the house. He never prayed, his voice was so soft we could barely hear him so I know my guests couldn't hear what he was saying. We had a handclassping and he tried to tie us while holding his notebook. I had to hold it for him. I wrote our service and I don't know what we would have gotten if I hadn't.

Heart Light Weddings responded with the following comments:

We are extremely sorry you were not pleased with Rev Tom's service. The wedding celebrants at HeartLight Weddings are not bible carrying ministers. We work with our couples to help create a wedding ceremony that reflects their beliefs, personalities and love for one another. We never add "prayers" that are not part of the wedding script agreed upon by the wedding couple.
We are sorry you didn't approve of his attire. I saw Rev. Tom before he left for the wedding and he was most definitely not wearing a dirty suit. I know he has a lot of trouble with his feet and wears black leather shoes for weddings. It did not appear to me that he had on shoes that were offensive or inappropriate. We are sorry if you were unhappy with his services. Thank you for your feedback, this assists us in making sure our communications with couples is clear as far as the content of the service and the attire of the minister.
Sincerely,
Rev. Hannah Desmond and Rev. Tom Johanson
Heartlight Wedding Celebrants
