Rev Amy was amazing to work with. She was prompt, pleasant and deep down, just an all around good person. Although we just met her months before our wedding, it felt like we were old friends. She made our ceremony very personable and light-hearted; just what we wanted! We received many compliments from guests on how touching our ceremony was. I would definitely recommend Amy to others!

I really enjoyed meeting with Amy before the wedding. She gladly agreed to come meet us on our side of town, and her presence was instantly calming. She is personable, honest, creative, and dependable. I would recommend her to the closest of my friends, for any life event where a minister is needed. As for the wedding, it all went without a hitch and I am grateful for Amy for that--she rounded up the troops (family and bridal party!) and made sure everyone knew what they were supposed to be doing. If she wasn't there, I would not have known what time it was or if the musicians were performing or where I was supposed to stand. Highly, highly recommend!

We found Amy online and were very happy we chose her. She was easy to work with, professional, helpful and friendly. She handled pretty much everything in preparation for the wedding and all we had to do was tell her what we liked and didn't like. She was very open to us doing things how we wanted it but offered plenty of helpful guidance and suggestions. When the day arrived we were stress free and the ceremony went perfectly. She did a fantastic job and we've received many compliments from wedding guests that our officiant was great. Thank you Amy!

It is hard to put into words how lucky we feel to have crossed paths with Amy. We had reached out to her based on the great reviews on The Knot.com. Not only was she our wedding officiant, but she also instructed our pre-marital counseling sessions. As the weeks progressed, both my husband and I formed a friendship with Amy that we feel contributred into a more meaningful and personal ceremony. We could not have had a better day and we both feel like she became our friend who we wanted to have as a guest at our wedding to celebrate our marriage.

As we planned our wedding, we were so pleased that we chose Amy as our officiant. Of all the decisions we made in an effort to set the tone for our day, finding and choosing Amy was among the top 3 most critical. We were looking for a personal and warm event tailored to our personalities and relationship. From the moment we met, we found Amy authentic, engaging, and interested in providing her services in the way that we envisioned. We appreciated that she had ideas to share for readings, vows, etc. that she tailored to our relationship but then let us plan the ceremony from there. In the end, we could use her ideas or our own. It was all up to us. The day of the wedding, Amy was prompt, calm, professional, and engaging. She connected with musician, readers, and others to ensure the ceremony would go smoothly and with no surprises. She incorporated humor into the ceremony in a way that suited our personalities and added to the moment. As a person, Amy is fabulous and genuine. We respect her deeply. As an officiant, we give our highest recommendation to anyone seeking an open, authentic, and supportive officiant!

Amy was very knowledgeable and nice. She was a great choice for us. She was very friendly and easy to get a long with. She did NOT judge us at all (a couple that others seem to think is too young to get marred plus I have blue hair), which was GREAT. I would recommend Amy to anyone who wants a laid back, but professional officiant for our service.

She also wrote her own passage about my husband and I's relationship based on question she asked us. It was beautiful and perfect.

From the moment we first met with Rev. Amy in person to discuss her as our wedding officiant, we knew she was the perfect match! She made us feel very comfortable with her warm, friendly and bubbly approach. We were able to personalize every aspect of our ceremony from the vows, readings, blessing of rings, pronouncement of marriage etc. Rev. Amy provided wondering options and examples for us to use and help us outline our ceremony. If you're more creative then us you can create parts or all of your ceremony from scratch if you'd like!

The groom's father had passed away just a year before and it was important that we include him in the ceremony somehow. Not only did we have a memorial candle, photo and have Rev. Amy make a statement about remembering those who have passed but she also came up with a wonderful way to include him in the ceremony. She presented the idea for us to light our individual unity candles from his memorial candle before lighting our unity candle together and we both loved it! It was a very touching moment for many of the family members in attendance and the groom was very happy he was able to include his father somehow. That's not the kind of attention and personalization you'll get from just any officiant!

We would absolutely recommend Amy to anyone getting married and we now have a minister for anything we may need for life!

Rev. Amy was one of the most wonderful things that happened to us while wedding planning! We were nervous about finding an officiant, but once we talked with her we knew that she was the perfect fit. She worked with us to craft a beautiful and unique ceremony, and really took time to get to know us as a couple and as individuals. On the day of the ceremony, not only did she perform a beautiful ceremony, but she also helped us scramble to move our outdoor ceremony inside due to rain.

She is a person who has truly found her calling in life as an officiant. It is evident in her vivacity, enthusiasm, and sincerity. We cannot recommend her highly enough!

Amy was perfect. We had met with 7 different people to make our day special and we just fell in love with Amy! She is just so personable and very spiritual and understanding. My husband and I were raised with extremely different religious backgrounds (I was raised Catholic he was raised Mormon) but wanted to have somewhat of a spiritual ceremony. We came up with our ceremony through internet and from talking to people. She helped us perfect it and make it ours. She was very helpful with ideas and willing to go above and beyond to make our day truly ours. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to have a friend marry you and be willing to create something special for you! Thank you Amy for making our day special and uniquely ours!

Rev. Amy was amazing! She was so nice and I needed that after going through what I did. I called her not even a week before my wedding and she made time for my wedding. And she gave me just the hug I needed the day of my wedding. The ceremony was more then we could've hoped for, and she laughed right along with my husband and I. I cannot find the words to thank her and I never will. I would refer her to anybody! Ages great! And she genuinely cares it doesn't get any better then being married by someone who actually wants to be a part of your day!
