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.

Rev Sue Ellen and Rev Mark were a huge part of our day and we were thrilled with their service. Early on, we met with both of them to plan and to add those personal touches we wanted to come through in the ceremony. Rev Sue sent us lots of information by email and we were able to customize the ceremony to fit our wants and needs. Rev Mark conducted the ceremony and he was fun, flexible, and great to work with. We were so happy with their service and would highly recommend them to any couple.

Amazing!!! I can't say enough!!! We got to fully customize our ceremony even though we had no clue how to put one together! Sue was so helpful with helping us build our ceremony.

And Mark who did our ceremony was phenomenal! All of our guests kept telling us what a unique and beautiful ceremony we had! I will recommend them to everyone!!!!

My husband & I enjoyed our experience working with Revered Sue Samuels so much! Before meeting with her, we were concerned that some things we had seen at other ceremonies, or our impression of "typical" ceremonies, weren't what we wanted & didn't make sense for our relationship/style. She was so helpful throughout the process, explaining all the ways we could personalize our ceremony. She provided so many choices to help us create our vows and all the parts of our ceremony, helping us make it our style. One of our favorite choices we made was to include handfasting, loved the symbolism of it, and we had our mothers be the specially chosen people to tie/untie the cords. Thank you Sue for the performing the best ceremony we could have hoped for!!!!!!!!!

We are from Canada and so planning the wedding had its challenges. We were so grateful that we found Rev. Sue. Our wedding was everything we wanted it to be. Rev. Sue met with us and gave us all kinds of options. My husband & I wanted to write our entire ceremony. She then emailed us with several different suggestions for us to use as a guide or not. Everything went perfectly. Rev. Sue gave meaning to our words as she read them and everyone said it was the nicest ceremony they had ever heard. After we returned from our honeymoon we still hadn't received our wedding certificate. Rev Sue not only offered to phone for us but she also offered to go to the town clerks office where we had it issued if necessary. I believe that was way beyond what anyone would expect. I was truly touched. I would recommend Rev. Sue for any function. Kathleen & Alan Bartlett

Rev. Sue was great! She was wonderful to communicate back and fourth with while planning our ceremony. She gave us ideas, but also allowed us to put our own personal touches on everything. She was almost always quick to respond to emails, which, when you're planning a wedding is always a great thing. The best part was she was so organized the day of our rehearsal, because our rehearsal place was not very organized. She took charge and told everyone where they needed to be and what they should be doing. We were lucky to have her there! She did an amazing job on the actual day as well. Would definitely recommended her!

Great reverend to have marry you, very accommodating. Married us twice, the first time in a small private ceremony ( to help speed along some immigrations issues), and the second time amongst all our family and friends. Also offered to help with sound system for the wedding ceremony, as our DJ was unable to access the ceremony area. Overall, very friendly, helpfull and a pleasure to be around.

My husband and I are far from religious and Sue was more than willing to work with that and cut it all out of the "traditional" wedding ceremonies. She was always on time if not early to everything and responded quickly to any questions or concerns I had about the big day. During the ceremony she had a copy of our vows for us to read in her binder so that we could just read them from there and not have to worry about fumbling with any paper or trying to memorize them. She was very helpful and understanding about everything.

From our first meeting, Sue was phenomenal in bringing together our two different religions to form a perfectly harmonized and absolutely beautiful ceremony. She gave us all of the information we needed to start creating our own unique ceremony, and gave us lots of options and ideas that really helped tie it all together. We had so many compliments on the ceremony; all night long people were commenting how it was the perfect ceremony, and they had never seen one like it. On top of all of this, Sue ended up getting very sick a few days before the wedding. Like a solider fighting through, Sue did every thing in her power to ensure that she was at our wedding, and that it was perfect. Her amazing spirit and natural joy performing our ceremony was apparent to everyone, and made it an event to remember forever. We wouldn't have wanted anyone else up there with us on our wedding day. We can't thank Sue enough for everything she did for us, and also couldn't be happier to recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant to perform any type of wedding ceremony.

Sue was great. We met with her almost a year in advance to go over the ceremony, and we opted for the handfasting and the rose ceremony with the mothers (note, you will need to buy supplies for any extra ceremonies). She was very responsive to my e-mails throughout the planning process and open to any ideas. For the rehearsal she ran it efficiently and she gave us some fun suggestions for the processional to lighten things up a bit. We had a great experience and we'd recommend Sue to any new brides-to-be in the Buffalo area!

We met with her almost a year in advance to go over the ceremony, and we opted for the handfasting and the rose ceremony with the mothers (note, you will need to buy supplies for any extra ceremonies). She was very responsive to my e-mails throughout the planning process and open to any ideas. For the rehearsal she ran it efficiently and she gave us some fun suggestions for the processional to lighten things up a bit. We had a great experience and we'd recommend Sue to any new brides-to-be in the Buffalo area! Read less

I would not recommend this company. Our officiant, Mark, literally forgot our vows DURING our ceremony. He was CLEARLY not prepared, and told us that the pages got stuck together during the ceremony, and that was his explanation as to why they were missed. I'm sorry, but a professional would have known the material beforehand and caught that something was missing during the reading. We are extremely disappointed in this company, and will never get to remember reciting or vows to each other on our wedding day.

Rev. Sue Ellen Samuels responded with the following comments:

I have read your review, and I am so very sorry that you feel so bad about your ceremony. I notice that you have not reviewed your limo service or the venue where you were married. I truly wish you would have contacted me promptly and directly with any disappointment you had with your officiant. I never heard a word from you until you posted this unfavorable review. It came as a shock, since Rev. Mark had many wonderful compliments from your guests following your ceremony. I honestly wish your day would have played out exactly as you had planned. It was such a beautiful ceremony, and took many hours of planning and rehearsing.
In all fairness, I must stand up for the integrity Of Rev. Mark Sutter. His intentions and personal interest in every wedding ceremony that he has conducted is to aid and assist the couple in any way, shape, or form. This man has helped dig though suit cases looking for rings, helped contact Tux Stores, last minute, when groomsman didn't match, talked many anxious grooms though their vows, and even did the "Princess Bride" voice of the officiant as requested by one bride!!!
The information I received both from Rev. Mark, and confirmed by your venue, tell me that your day was not at all going as planned...long before the ceremony started. I understand your transportation schedule was less than desirable and that you arrived well over than an hour and a half late due to traffic, and then you took more than another half hour before the ceremony actually took place.
You also did not get married on 6/23/12. You were married on 9/14/12.
I also understand that your Foreman at your wedding venue was sent home earlier in the day due to illness, without a backup. The manager of your venue showed up briefly, then could not be found. All the issues and questions that need addressed where left hanging. Was the wedding to be outside or in? Where was the sand, the table, the table cloth for your sand ceremony? Where there chairs to be set up and where? Who was there to answer guests when they seemed disoriented about where to go? There was only one person that stepped up and helped your groomsman with these details, and it was not anyone from your venue. Not a single person from your venue helped in any way!
Rev. Mark retrieved a table from a waitress, the table cloth from another staff member, and set up the sand. He reassured and directed your guests to the bar, and encouraged the anxious groomsman away from the bar. He helped move the location three (3) times, sand and all...in and out of the shelter. When the final decision was made to hold it outside due to the rain clearing, he helped set up all the chairs (125) and saw that they were dry for your guests comfort. This is where your ceremony probably got wet. I have strong rules that the ceremony/marriage license never be left out of the Minister's sight. I use plastic covers on the pages of the ceremonies, and did not even consider that the moisture may may make stick. I do not think that Rev. Mark intentionally passed by your vows. He realized the mistake to late to do anything else but to continue on to your sand ceremony. It was not due to his inattention. In all honesty, your husband told Rev. Mark "not to be to concerned" because he "did not want to do the (repeated back and forth) vows you selected any way."
I believe whole heartily that Rev. Mark tried his very best to calm the tension, reassure everyone involved and assume responsibility for a situation that should have been handled by the manager of your venue. I will stand by his professionalism. I know personally that he was more than prepared, and knew the ceremony as well as any he has done in the past. Everything went very well at your rehearsal, and you did not question his professionalism at that time!

I am sorry that you are so very disgruntled, but I ask that you review the day in it's entirety, and ask yourself if Rev. Mark mislead you in any way, or was it genuinely an a calamity due to extreme tension and a strain on his composure? I believe that when you weigh in, you will see the support and assistance that Rev. Mark provided warrants some positive recognition.
I know that some of your reviews have been questioned legally and taken down... and I would never want to take it that far. Please reconsider, Rev. Mark should not be slandered in this way!

Rev. Samuels was so great. She is so kind and very informative. She went over every little detail and made sure things were just how we wanted them. She got back to me with any answers to questions I had the very same day or the next. We loved the ceremony and I don't think you can find anyone who's heart is in it more than hers. We would recommend her to everyone!!

Someone I did not know very well recommended Rev. Samuels because of the comfort, trust, and overall good feeling they felt with her. That alone caused me to contact her. When we met for the first time, I definitely felt that she was relatable and very open to each individual couple's desires, but came with many wonderful ceremony ideas that we could connect with. We liked her ideas because they weren't typical, and the one we chose ended up being very meaningful to us. The ceremony was beautiful, and many of our guests couldn't stop talking about it.

We were getting married out of town at my parents and all of our communication was either by email or phone. When we met we knew she was a perfect fit, she had designed a ceremony just for us that was more than what we dreamed. She created our Celtic wedding as if she had known us our whole lives, with personalized suggestions we had not even thought about. To us, the most important part of a wedding day is the ceremony itself, to express the love you share, Rev Sue captured the emotions and our beliefs we perfectly. Thank you!!

We found Reverand Sue TWO WEEKS before our July 4th wedding, after I decided I couldn't stand this guy! I thought for sure she would tell me she had her own plans for the holiday & I had waited too long. But when I explained my situation, she actually rearranged her schedule to officiate our wedding! With such short notice & on a holiday!! She literally saved the day!!!!

Beyond her willingness & availability, she was GREAT! She really understood what we wanted, a small, personalized, intimate, outdoor ceremony. She had great ideas for how to make our religious families comfortable at our non-religious ceremony! She was so easy going and comfortable to be around! Love her!

Sue Ellen Samuels was wonderful. I was a middle-aged first-time bride who, not having been through a wedding of my own nor attended any in the recent past, was somewhat clueless. Rev. Sue helped me out in weeks before the wedding by emailing samples of vows, readings and other materials. She was very responsive both on email and by phone. We didn't have a real rehearsal, but a few hours before the wedding, she guided my fiance and me through the process and gave us tips on how to make it run smoothly, which really helped calm my nerves. In addition to everything else, Rev. Sue and her assistant officiated on a holiday (1.1.11) and the fee was most reasonable. I highly recommend twohearts to anyone who doesn't have someone from their own church, synagogue or other connection to perform their ceremony!

Sue helped me out in weeks before the wedding by emailing samples of vows, readings and other materials. She was very responsive both on email and by phone. We didn't have a real rehearsal, but a few hours before the wedding, she guided my fiance and me through the process and gave us tips on how to make it run smoothly, which really helped calm my nerves. In addition to everything else, Rev. Sue and her assistant officiated on a holiday (1.1.11) and the fee was most reasonable. I highly recommend twohearts to anyone who doesn't have someone from their own church, synagogue or other connection to perform their ceremony! Read less

Sue Ellen Samuels was just a dream to work with for our wedding! We had some ideas of what we wanted and did not want and she guided us through the process of writing our vows in a thoughtful and reflective way. She answered our many questions and provided us with ideas to make our ceremony unique and special. She was supportive to us before, during and after our ceremony helping us to be present in the moment of our special day. We will be forever thankful to her!

We truly enjoyed working with Rev. Samuels. She is very knowledgeable and had a lot of fun ideas. We thought that the ceremony would be something that people just sat through but we got more compliments on our personalized vows then we ever expected. Highly recommend!!

Sue Ellen was awesome. She created an unique ceremony that was personal and fun. Everyone at the wedding raved about how well she did and what an interesting ceremony we had. We did the hand fasting which really was a creative way to "tie the knot". I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!

We got married outside but still wanted it to be some what religious. Rev. Samuels was so great and just what we were looking for. She was on time and the right price. The ceremony was just long enough but not over done. She listen to every thing I asked for. She had lots of info for us to help put it all together. It was truly perfect!

Reverend Mark helped make our wedding very special. He was easy to communicate with and was open to making our wedding ceremony as we wanted it. I wrote our vows and he had them printed out and in a book so he would get them perfect. He was very professional and extremely friendly, making our wedding day comfortable and perfect. He arrived in plenty of time before the service. I had previously spoken to Rev. Sue and she arranged everything for us as she had another engagement to attend that day. I would definately recommend !!!

Sue was absolutely FANTASTIC when it came to planning our ceremony and making it completely ours, not just a traditional wedding. She offered amazing ideas which I never would have thought of, calmed me down before the ceremony (even fanned me so I wouldn't sweat!) and was an overall calming presence throughout our service. She worked within the frames of me being Christian and my fiance not being religious with a perfect ceremony specifically catered to our needs. I would absolutely recommend Sue Samuels and Two Hearts for officiate your ceremony- you won't regret it.

Rev. Samuels is awesome and we loved her. She helped us create a wedding that was about us. We really married each other, we didn't recite the same old, tired vows that have been recited millions of times by so many others.

My husband and I are from different religious backgrounds and she is very knowledgable about the various customs. She integrated both to make our ceremony so precious and meaningful.

Our officiant was excellent! She took the time to get to know each of us personally prior to our wedding. We had great contact with her through phone and email. She was available to help with any questions and extremely friendly. She wrote our vows with our help and couldn't have done it better. Her ceremony was fantastic. The ideas we were able to incorporate into the ceremony were based on her suggestions which made everything beautiful. Although we did not get price quotes on other officiants, she was invaluable to our day and was actually quite affordable. She was also flexible with the religious aspects and catered to our wishes. We would highly recommend her services!
