The minute we met Puja we knew we wanted her to officiate our wedding. Not only was she warm and caring, her kind nature put us at ease. She helped us create vows that truly expressed us as individuals and the commitment we were making to each other. Puja is a true professional and a wonderful person. We would highly recommend her to any couple for their wedding.

Puja was recommended to us by our photographer, Maggie Heinzel-Neel. We had an excellent experience in crafting our ceremony with her. We wanted a completely secular wedding ceremony, which was more challenging than we originally expected. Starting from a blank slate is hard! Puja shared loads of examples of different ceremonies - some were more spiritual, some were very romantic, some were a little whimsical. And there were also tons of examples from Celtic, Native American, Indian and Jewish traditions. From all this information we were able to craft a ceremony that reflected the shared beliefs we have about marriage but also told the story of how our long friendship turned into a love story. Many of our guests commented on how beautiful and unique our ceremony was and a few said they got a little choked up - even some of the guys!

One of the main reasons we chose to work with Puja was that she made it clear from the beginning that she would act as a guide in putting the ceremony together, but the heavy lifting would be up to us. We took that as an opportunity to really reflect on not only our decision to get married, but what we expected our marriage to be. It also made us both very thoughtful about what we wanted to say to each other about how we felt and the promises that we wanted to make to each other. Puja was a tremendous help and made suggestions about tightening up certain areas of the ceremony or switching things around so they made more sense or weren’t repetitive. The overall language and feel was left in our hands and gave us honest and direct feedback about how it all sounded. We happily recommend Puja as an officiant! Whether you want a secular, spiritual or even non-denominational religious wedding ceremony, she is a perfect guide through the process and an excellent resource in supplying materials to help you craft a ceremony that will be just right for you.

Our original plans for an officiant fell through, and Puja was kind enough to step in at the last minute! She helped us construct a unique ceremony that perfectly represented our relationship and religious/spiritual backgrounds. Despite the last minute nature of our preparations, Puja was able to come to our ceremony rehearsal, and the day itself went off without a hitch. Would absolutely recommend!

We loved working with Puja. She is a lovely person and Reverend. We enjoyed the process of working with her to put together a ceremony that represented our values and feelings. She was a highlight on wedding day, helping us feel calm, relaxed and focused on our ceremony. And we felt happy that she stayed and enjoyed the festivities. As with all of our guests, it was a pleasure and an honor to have her with us sharing our special day. Xoxo

My husband and I are so happy Puja officiated our wedding ceremony a few weeks ago. She has a lovely presence, and officiates with the perfect combination of seriousness and lightness. Working with her was such a positive experience, from our initial meeting where we met and discussed what kind of ceremony we would like, to the ceremony itself.

Puja gave my husband and I so many suggestions on how to incorporate our diverse spiritual backgrounds into a ceremony that was incredibly personal and special- we truly experienced it as the most important day in our lives.

Puja is a warm and beautiful soul I would recommend wholeheartedly as an officiant for any ceremony!

Puja helped us to create the most beautiful wedding ceremony! With patience and gentle guidance, she helped us craft a unique ceremony that felt just right for us. Her delivery of the ceremony on our wedding day was heartfelt and genuine, and her kindness and personal attention throughout the rehearsal and right before the wedding made us feel comfortable and nurtured as well as relaxed, present, and centered. We had so many compliments from our guests about the ceremony and specifically about Puja. We thank her for playing such an important role in making our wedding so special! I highly recommend her services.

Puja brought magic, grace and charm to our glorious day! I knew from the moment we got engaged that I wanted Puja to be our Officiant! I know other couples who have had beautiful ceremonies led by Puja-she has a very respectable reputation. She worked with us to really make our vows flow seamlessly. She assists you every step of the way. She has many samples of vows to help guide you with a variety of ideas/styles etc. We received so many compliments about her from our assembly! We were so happy to have Puja lead our wedding.
