Thank goodness for Amy! As I am Christian and he is agnostic, finding an officiant who we felt we could be honest with and who would work to make a ceremony that appealed to both of us was daunting. We found Amy online and everyone had such glowing things to say, and it was all true! She was such a bright and pleasant person to work with, and she works so hard to develop a ceremony that's a perfect fit for the couple. At the end of the day, everyone said the ceremony was so us. Also invaluable were all Amy's words of wisdom -- she was great about keeping us upbeat during the planning process and reminding us that it was our wedding. Highly recommend her to anyone looking for a unique ceremony and calming, helpful presence! We will definitely be back for any officiant needs in the future!

We were looking for a minister to perform our wedding ceremony because we did not belong to a church congregation, and we found Reverend Amy in an online search. Both of us were impressed by her reviews, and she met our criteria of being a progressive, interfaith minister. When we first met Amy for coffee to introduce ourselves, we were immediately drawn to her warmth and her humor. It was clear that she took her work as an officiant seriously, but also that her focus would be on crafting a ceremony that was unique to us as a couple. When she insisted on giving us each a hug before we left the coffee store, we knew that she was someone we could quickly build a connection with and decided to hire her for counseling as well as officiating.

We met with Amy four times for counseling before our wedding, and each session was a chance for the two of us to explore aspects of our relationship that we had never discussed out loud before. Our conversations were enlightening, heartfelt, and often left us all laughing, while the homework assignments we received help facilitate more discussion at home. Amy also helped us understand our differences, and moderated the tougher conversations with grace. While the counseling sessions were great in their own right, they also had the great side effect of helping inspire her sermon at our wedding. She worked with us to plan our ceremony, helping us select readings, blessings, and vows; and she was great at working with our wedding party during the rehearsal to get everyone prepared for the big day.

The ceremony went off without a hitch, and everyone found Amy’s words to be inspiring and personal, with just the right dose of humor.

We could not have been happier with Amy as an officiant or as a counselor. She did a great job helping us plan all the minute details of our wedding day, but she also made sure we took the time to consider what being married would actually mean for us going forward.

Rev. Amy was FANTASTIC. From the moment we met, she made my now-husband and I feel incredibly comfortable. We had the opportunity to meet with her a few times before the wedding, and even though we were meeting to lay out wedding plans Amy made it really fun. She has a great sense of humor, is incredibly creative and caring, and made our wedding ceremony incredibly special to us. Amy is SO easy to work with and tailored our wedding ceremony to fit our preferences perfectly. She was also a rock star at our wedding rehearsal the day before, and kept our large wedding party and family on track while still keeping the tone of the rehearsal fun and light-hearted. A+++!!

Working with Amy was a dream. She really made an effort to get to know us as a couple, and made herself available at all times for any questions that we had about the wedding process. She also provided 1 session of premarital counseling which gave us a nice overview the strengths of our relationship as well as things we could improve on. I couldn't have asked for a better person to bring us into this new phase of life.

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!
