Working with Puja was a complete pleasure. She was very attentive to our desires and vision, and also extremely knowledgeable about how a ceremony can work. She had a wealth of examples of parts of the ceremony and entire ceremonies for us to look through. We were able to craft a perfect ceremony for us. Her presence was very warm and comfortable. I would absolutely recommend her to any other couples ready to make this commitment.

Puja from Roots and Wings is truly a magical woman. Puja was easy to communicate with, very professional and helped make our ceremony decisions stress free and easy. We couldn't have asked for a better connection between us and our officiant PUJA. We didn't want the typical ceremony because we aren't typical people. We are spiritual but not religious and love nature. Nature and our love is what we wanted our ceremony based around and Puja did just that. Short, sweet, of nature and our union. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect ceremony and would recommend Puja without a second thought to everyone.

Reverend Puja Thomson officiated our wedding at the Red Maple Vineyard in New Paltz, NY. From the beginning Ms. Thomson not only helped me and my betrothed understand all that it took to perform a marriage ceremony, she helped us along our path as a couple and helped us find a middle ground between both of our spiritual needs. The consultations prior to our wedding day were as important as the wedding itself.
I would say that she is not only extremely well read and eloquent, but she really does help you flesh out your spiritual wants and needs with your partner. A loving and caring woman of the cloth.
I would recommend to anybody looking to be joined in Union.

It was a pleasure to work with Puja. She was one of the vendors recommended by Mohonk Mountain House where we had our wedding. After we had our introductory call, we went up to her place and talked about what we had in mind for our ceremony and she described her experience as an officiant. Puja was accommodating and worked with us to customize our ceremony. She made it an easy process for us since she had samples of previous ceremonies for us to review and get ideas from. During the ceremony she made us feel at ease with her calm and serene presence. Our guests later said they thought the ceremony was beautiful. We thought so too! I'd say the more specific you're about what you're looking for in your ceremony, the better the results. Puja will help you but you need to do your part too if you want the ceremony to reflect who you are as a couple. We'll always remember ours!
We did interview other officiants who were either over the top or inexplicably very expensive or both. We highly recommend Puja.

We chose Puja as our officiant because we felt an instant connection with her. She is so lovely to work with and offered wonderful advice. She made our day even more special than we could have dreamed and we always felt like we had her undivided attention while going through the process of building our wedding ceremony. We would recommend her to anyone looking for an authentic, memorable, love-filled event.

Puja was a sincere pleasure to work with as my spouse and I began to plan our wedding. Before our first meeting we had a really nice conversation with her on the phone where she asked us lots of questions and implored us to think about things that were important to us - as a couple - so that our ceremony would be well personalized. The meeting was a continuation of that exploration about us. There were a number of follow up calls where we further planned every detail of our ceremony with her. She really left no stone unturned as she seemed to want just what we wanted, which was a highly personalized and self styled ceremony. The wedding turned out to be beautifully just right and we were very happy. Puja is excellent, in all regards.

Puja was wonderfully helpful. We worked through a guided questionnaire that helped her get to know us, but also to focus us on what was important in our relationship that we would want to emphasize in our ceremony/marriage. She met with us and provided many examples of templates for different parts of the ceremony- some more elaborate and some more simple. We were able to find the tone we wanted to strike within the ceremony and she helped guide and tie the whole thing together so that it was meaningful and cohesive. She guided us through a practice of the ceremony so that we were prepared for the day of. Overall is was a wonderfully meaning ceremony to us, and we were so pleased to share our special day with Puja.

Puja is AMAZING! She is kind, direct, patient and very easy to communicate with. Her spiritual presence and positive energy was instantly felt. Our ceremony was absolute perfection. It was the most beautiful day of our lives. Everyone who attended continues to talk about how unique and special our ceremony was, and that they have never been to a wedding like ours. She helped us to create a very meaningful and intimate ceremony that reflected exactly who we are, and what we believe, and that was most important to us. Puja worked with us over months via email, Skype and in person meetings. Her guidance throughout the process was beyond anything we both expected. We are so very grateful to her and what she helped to create for us. Puja is wonderful, professional and genuinely caring. We couldn't have picked a better person to be our wedding officiant. We highly recommend her services.
