We had the honor and privilege of having Sue Samuels as our wedding officiant and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. She came highly recommended from a friend and after some research, we decided to call her and setup our initial consult. From the moment we met, we knew Sue would be the one to marry us. She was classy, professional and extremely knowledgeable. She made us feel completely comfortable and stress-free. She took care of all the details and allowed us to have a smooth, elegant ceremony in the presence of our family and friends. Her knowledge of the business, charisma and creativity are unmatched and we would highly recommend her and her company for your wedding officiant services. Thank you Sue!

We had Rev. Sue Ellen for our October 2014 and everything was amazing from the first time we met her.

My husband and I had been working on finding a minister that would perform a handfasting that wouldn't scare our very Christian relatives. After our first minister fell through I found Rev. Sue's card on my desk while shuffling through some papers. I had no idea where it came from but I immediately emailed her to see if she was available. She met my now husband and I for coffee in what was the most pleasant meeting of a stranger ever. She was warm and welcoming and confident in her abilities. She offered exceptional suggestions, without ever being pushy or judging. I left that meeting feeling like it was the perfect match for us. Fun with a bit of traditional, just like us. She emailed us the next day. The email had tons of samples for readings and vows, and we were able to work with her on the entire ceremony, word for word, until we were completely satisfied. There were so many little touches in the ceremony that our guests have mentioned as incredibly moving. The wording of the handfasting, the rose ceremony, the wording of the ring exchange (which my best friend loved so much she is reusing in her wedding this weekend!), and even the suggestion of my husband's grandparents signing the marriage license. She knew how to make it both unique and memorable and keep everyone at ease with the non traditional parts.

I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a beautiful ceremony, multi-faith or not.

Sue was fantastic! She helped us with the whole ceremony and most importantly made us comfortable throughout the whole thing. She is calm, cool, and collected and we could not have gotten someone to make the official part of our wedding run any smoother.

Rev. Sue was the best. She took time out to make it to our rehearsal on short notice and guided us on how it should go. Her speeches during the ceremony were absolutely beautiful and she even had a tissue for my wife during the vows! I would highly recommend Rev Sue to anyone who is looking for an officiant.

Our wedding day could not have happened without Rev. Sue. My husband is a United States Marine and we were planning our wedding in Rochester, NY from Hawaii. My husband and I really wanted our friend to marry us but it would have been his first time doing a wedding. Finding Rev. Sue was nothing short of a miracle. While she was already booked for our wedding day, she offered to plan and put together the ceremony AND drive down from Buffalo the night before to run our rehearsal. She helped us build a ceremony from the ground up and gave insight and suggestions along the way, while still allowing it to be "our" ceremony. During our rehearsal picnic (before the actual rehearsal) she took the time to pull us and our friend (the now Officiant) aside to be sure we were all comfortable and on the same page. Rev. Sue was professional, kind and very involved throughout the entire process. I cannot say enough about Rev. Sue and her obvious passion for what she does. I am so very grateful to have found Reverend Sue and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant.
