Rev. Macomb is amazing. She specializes in interfaith weddings, and created an amazing ceremony for us. She does this partially by weaving in poignant elements of the our respective traditions, but more by really taking the time to get to know *us* and incorporating unique elements of our personalities.

Originally, we had envisioned a short, low-key ceremony, but Rev. Macomb created something that really did our relationship justice, with emotion, uniqueness, and humor (and wasn't TOO long :) ). Our guests had a great time, and we got so many comments on how moving and how "us" our ceremony was.

I would definitely recommend Rev. Macomb, especially to a couple looking for a unique, individualized ceremony.

Reverend Susanna Macomb is simply the best! For us it was a long, arduous search to find the right officiant for our wedding. No one seemed quite right. One was too saccharine, one was too pushy, one didn’t seem to be sincere enough… We really wanted our ceremony to be special, personal, tasteful, and heartfelt, and not the usual spiel. After many hours of searching the web, we found Rev. Susanna, and after one phone conversation (and viewing a couple of her youtube videos) we knew we had found the right one!

She was above and beyond our expectations. We were so touched by her words that we were bawling through most of the ceremony, as was nearly everyone else, including the guys! Afterwards, one of the most common comments from our guests was how touching the ceremony was. It really set the tone for the reception and the rest of the night. We couldn’t recommend her more highly!

Susanna is fantastic! The ceremony was very personal for me and my husband and so many guests came up to me and said that the ceremony spoke to them as well. Would highly recommend.

As we were not getting married in a church I wanted to find an officiant who would take the time to get to know us. Rev. Susanna Macomb was the perfect choice. Once we spoke on the phone I knew that I wanted her to perform our ceremony. I wanted our ceremony to be spiritual and very personalized, and she gave us many options. On our wedding day, we all laughed and cried and I could not believe how many people came up to me and said how amazing the ceremony was. They all had thought that we knew Rev. Macomb for years! She really “got” us. Even though we had a costume masquerade ball for our wedding, the first thing that people comment on is not the costume ball, but how unique and beautiful the ceremony was! She’s really has a gift. I’d highly recommend her to anybody.
