Are you looking for an amazing ceremony?

Do you want an even more amazing marriage?

Because your wedding day is not only a day of celebration, but also the day that launches a whole new chapter of your life, I am here to create a heartfelt, memorable wedding ceremony with you and offer you wisdom and guidance to build the marriage of your dreams.

By listening to the story of your relationship and your desires for your wedding day, we will create a ceremony you will always remember - one that will have your guests laughing, and maybe, crying - and definitely, raving.

Photographer Laura Gallagher writes, "Rev. Sue is one of a kind. Her wedding ceremonies are full of grace, love and attention…like nothing else I have ever witnessed. It's so heart felt and wonderful, everyone notices it. I have proof since I take the photos, it's written all over their faces."

By getting to know you and listening to your dreams for your marriage, I will affirm the strengths that are in your relationship and provide wisdom and guidance to support those areas needing attention and growth.

We will start by getting to know each other. I want to learn everything I can about how you met, your first date, when "you knew," why your relationship is so wonderful, and your dreams for the future.

Then we will go over the parts of a wedding ceremony so you will see what we can create together. I will give you lots of ideas and be open to your ideas. My goal is to create a ceremony that you love from beginning to end.

And, if you want, we can get together for Marriage Preparation sessions - a time to talk about the most important parts of marriage, including communication, successfully managing inevitable conflicts, and what you want for your future.

Recent bride Ashley writes, "Words cannot describe what gifts you have given us as we set out on this new married journey. We take with us greater knowledge of ourselves and us as a couple that we would never have understood without your guidance. The ceremony you wrote for us was icing on the cake."

Please take a peek at my reviews, the best way for you to see what we can create together! Thanks for reading!

Blessings on your Big Day! Blessings on your marriage! Read less

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Agnostic, Baha'i Faith, Buddhist, Christian (no denomination), Christian - Anglican, Christian - Baptist, Christian - Catholic, Christian - Episcopalian, Christian - Lutheran, Christian - Methodist, Christian - Mormon, Christian - Orthodox, Christian - Presbyterian, Christian - Quaker, Evangelical, Hindu, Islam, Jainism, Jewish, Muslim, Shinto, Sikhism, Taoist
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
Yes
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes. I perform ceremonies all over - at the finest wedding venues in the area, as well as at local parks, backyards, etc - anywhere a couple chooses!
What is your attire for the ceremony?
My attire varies depending upon the wishes of the couple. On most occasions I dress in my black ceremonial robe (but never white; I leave that for the bride!) with a stole made from my own wedding dress.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Yes, I am flexible and creative! My intent is to reflect the personalities and wishes of each couple.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes, I encourage couples to write their own vows, giving them samples and guidance. The vows are the one moment in the ceremony where the couple has the opportunity to share what's deepest in their hearts. For couples who are concerned that writing their vows would be difficult, I provide coaching and feedback each step of the way.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
Couples are encouraged to choose readings that are most meaningful to them. If couples have found readings on their own - great! If couples need help finding a beautiful reading, I have LOTS of samples to offer.
How long are your ceremonies?
The length of the ceremony depends entirely upon what a couple wants. 
 I have done 10-15 minute ceremonies, as well as 45-50 minute ceremonies.
 Most ceremonies are in the 20-35 minute range.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
Premarital counseling may be the most important investment a couple can make during their engagement. Although I do not require it, I encourage couples to consider taking the time to do it. Couples will spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on flowers that are "here today, gone tomorrow." 
 Making the investment for premarital counseling will last a lot longer! I offer affordable rates to encourage couples to make this choice for their future.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes, I like to perform rehearsals to make sure that the couple and all who are participating in the ceremony feel at ease before the big day!
Do you supply a sound system?
I do not. But, most couples have a DJ or band that can do this.

Rev Sue. is an amazing lady and she did a fantastic job! I really do mean that. She kept everyone engaged with small stories of my husband and I.... keeping our ceremony unique. Even before the ceremony, we enjoyed our time with her... we laughed a lot. She is very personable and I highly recommend hiring her. You will be very pleased.

We booked Reverend Sue about a year in advance and she was so warm and responsive throughout the whole ceremony planning process. We loved being able to personalize each aspect of our ceremony (readings, blessing, vows, etc) and Reverend Sue was always available to offer advice or suggestions. Many people told us that our ceremony 1) was one of their favorite ever and 2) made them cry (tears of happiness!). I highly recommend Reverend Sue as a wedding officiant and also for pre-marital counseling. She is wonderful!

I just knew there was something special about Rev. Sue after our first conversation on the phone and I wanted to hold out on booking the first officiant we had met with (who seemed nice to work with!) until we had met with Sue!! It was the right way to go because when we met Sue, her smile just lit up the room, she made us feel at ease, and she laughed easily with us. We found that spending time with her really felt like "home".. She has a very warm and caring personality and you cannot help but love her! Rev. Sue really "got us" as a couple and individually after only a very short amount of time. She put the time and effort into our ceremony to help make it so beautiful, memorable, and unique. She was so well received by our guests and many asked where we "got her from!" Her demeanor at the ceremony was on point.

We wanted a special element in our ceremony, but could not quite pinpoint it! Rev. Sue came up with a winning idea - we are so looking forward to receiving our videos from the videographer to relive the moments all over again. She is passionate about what she does and it shows in her work with you. Rev. Sue is professional, timely, and helps you organize the key aspects of the ceremony. She will send drafts of the ceremony to make sure it is to your liking and is very responsive and collaborative with your own ideas. We wrote our own vows and she really had a way of creating a final draft that just floated together so smoothly. Thank you Rev. Sue for helping us create such a special ceremony that will live in our hearts forever!!!!

We got married on August 16, 2014 and Rev. Sue married us! My husband John and I both feel that choosing Rev. Sue was one of the best choices that we made for our wedding day. She was wonderful! When we first began looking for an officiant we emailed a few local officiants pretty late one night, and Rev. Sue responded right away! And her communication stayed consistently wonderful throughout the entire planning process as well as with the many questions that we had. When we met her for the first time, John and I instantly knew that we wanted Rev. Sue to marry us; she made us feel so comfortable and made us feel that she really wanted to get to know us too. By getting to know us she was able to infuse our personalities as well as many special touches into our ceremony. She did such an amazing job creating a fun, special ceremony just for us! She really embraced us, our families, and our guests. We would definitely refer her to other couples!

My husband and I cannot say enough amazing things about Rev. Sue. We had meetings with her before, I guess you can call it "premarital counseling" but she helped us through every one of the stresses couples encounter during a wedding. I always put it as, I need Rev. sue with me at all times b/c she is the most positive light you could ever be around. She helped us write our own vows and gave us things to think about along the path to get married. You are really missing you if you choose someone else. My husband and I both said, we are happiest about our Officiant choice more than anything because we know she will be in our lives after the wedding.

Bottom line - Rev Sue is the best. She does AMAZING at weddings, and helped me keep grounded and sane throughout the entire wedding process and we have made a life long connection with her which we are so grateful for!

We could not have asked for a better officiant at our wedding than Reverend Sue. From the first time we spoke with her she did everything in her power to make us comfortable and help us along this exciting journey. Her professionalism and caring nature shined through during the ceremony. The ceremony she created for us felt genuine, honest, and truly personalized for us and she delivered it with elegance and grace. Many of our wedding guests told us that our ceremony was the most beautiful ceremony that had ever been too, and we attribute that to such fine work that Rev.

We would recommend Rev. Sue 100 times out of 100.

Rev. Sue Koehler-Arsenault did such a beautiful job officiating our ceremony. I cannot recommend her enough! Not knowing the first thing about what kind of direction we wanted to go in with our ceremony, Rev. Sue guided us and helped us to choose readings that reflected our relationship. Our wedding was sort of a "destination wedding" and we lived quite far from her, so Rev. Sue was extremely flexible and able to set up meetings over Skype to talk about the type of ceremony we wanted. We felt completely at ease during the whole planning process.

We had a backyard wedding and therefore we didn't know the first thing about where everyone should stand, where to walk in, the cues everyone needed to look for, but all of that didn't matter because Rev. Sue took charge at the rehearsal and guided everyone to their correct places. During the actual ceremony, she spoke clearly, and really took her time in order to allow us to enjoy our own ceremony. It was a feeling I will never forget! She even stood out of the way during the exchange of rings and vows so that the photographer could get a picture of my husband and me during this special moment. Compliment after compliment from our guests on our ceremony really attest to the fact that Rev. Sue loves what she does. We are so thankful that she was our officiant!

Not knowing the first thing about what kind of direction we wanted to go in with our ceremony, Rev. Sue guided us and helped us to choose readings that reflected our relationship. Our wedding was sort of a "destination wedding" and we lived quite far from her, so Rev. Sue was extremely flexible and able to set up meetings over Skype to talk about the type of ceremony we wanted. We felt completely at ease during the whole planning process.

We had a backyard wedding and therefore we didn't know the first thing about where everyone should stand, where to walk in, the cues everyone needed to look for, but all of that didn't matter because Rev. Sue took charge at the rehearsal and guided everyone to their correct places. During the actual ceremony, she spoke clearly, and really took her time in order to allow us to enjoy our own ceremony. It was a feeling I will never forget! She even stood out of the way during the exchange of rings and vows so that the photographer could get a picture of my husband and me during this special moment. Compliment after compliment from our guests on our ceremony really attest to the fact that Rev. Sue loves what she does. We are so thankful that she was our officiant! Read less

Rev. Sue provided my husband and me with an experience that I did not expect. We are very spiritual people and truly do believe that ““They are not said to be husband and wife, who merely sit together. Rather, they alone are called husband and wife, who have one soul in two bodies.” (Guru Amar Das).

However, we are anything from “traditional”. We wanted to be united in reverence and commitment to each other. We didn’t want to feel that we were not taking it seriously if we didn’t have a traditional wedding.

Rev. Sue, with all her heart and grace, provided this for us. She helped us through the decisions of picking out the perfect words that would be recited. We were allowed to personalize the entire ceremony.

It truly was a blessing to have found Rev Sue for our spiritual union. It was with her guidance and understanding that helped to create the most memorable day in our lives.

Rev Sue is so kind and attentive to the wants of the bride and groom. She created such a personal ceremony for the two of us and it was so nice to know how much she cared to make the ceremony unique and intimate. This can be something hard to do when the wedding becomes such a large affair but Sue did a fantastic job.

Rev. Sue did a great job with our ceremony and all the preparations ahead of time. We were planning our wedding from 1800 miles away, and she was very prompt with everything -- from her initial response to setting up our first meeting via Skype and all the way through to the cermony. Our wedding was at my parents' house and it was very small (only 16 guests), so we didn't have a planner or anything. As soon as Sue arrived, she made sure all our ducks were in a row. She wasn't afraid to go wherever she needed to go, even delegating tasks to make sure our day was pulled off without a hitch. PLUS, as an overwhelmed bride, she kept cool and acknowledged that "it's a lot", which took my edge off immediately. When one of my readers was late for the ceremony, she quickly came up with a contingency plan to help make up for lost time.
Several of our guests even commented on what a great job she did and asked where we found her. We couldn't have been happier!

We saw Rev. Sue's name on a list and asked her if she was available on our wedding day. We received a prompt yes reply. When we met with her for the first time we felt instantly comfortable - as we sat and spoke with her about our plans for our day it was like we were speaking to someone who had known us for years. We knew we had found the right person to share our day and unite us in marriage. She helped us choose our vows and all the aspects of the ceremony that fit us as a couple. She guided us through our planning process and we even were able to add a remembrance of a loved one who passed away prior to our ceremony with very little notice. As I walked with my father to meet my groom it was comforting to see Rev Sue there I knew even if I got nervous she would be there to see me through. There isn't enough room on this page to say all of the positive things we feel about Rev. Sue - She is warm, caring and gets to know you which just adds a personal touch to the ceremony. She made our day wonderful and I would recommend her to everyone.

Rev. Sue was great! We were nervous about finding an officiant because we don't belong to any religious organizations and didn't already have someone who knew us who could officiate. We were referred to Rev. Sue by a friend's officiant, and we feel lucky to have found her. She was a great listener and made sure to craft a ceremony that we and our families would all feel comfortable with. She gave us the option of writing our own ceremony or choosing from an ample list of suggested ceremony components. We met with Rev. Sue and discussed the history of our relationship and what we'd like from the ceremony. From our discussion (and some email exchanges), Rev. Sue was able to craft a funny, insightful, spiritual, and unique ceremony for us. We also appreciated that Rev. Sue was very quick to respond over email to our questions. We would highly recommend Rev. Sue!

We had interviewed other officiants but we had an immediate connection with Rev Sue. She seemed to care about us, our story, and what we wanted. By the end of the process, we felt as if she had known us for years. Rev Sue made herself available for advice, a supportive ear and always a friendly smile. Look no further for your officiant!

I can't say enough how happy my husband and I are that we had Rev. Sue officiate our wedding. She was a truly nice, caring person, and I had many people tell me how beautiful and meaningful the ceremony was. I have to admit, before meeting with Rev. Sue, we were not so excited about the ceremony part of the wedding, we were more concentrated on the "party part". After our first meeting, Rev. Sue not only had us excited about our ceremony, she also had us picking out readings, vows, and ceremonial music that very nice because we were so excited about the ceremony. Rev. Sue gave us a piece of advice at a meeting before the wedding- make sure that you take time to appreciate your spouse each and every day. She said you can get caught up in all of the little things in life, and your marriage can often get pushed to the back burner. Every night when we go to bed, my husband and I think about this piece of advice. I would recommend Rev. Sue to anyone who is getting married.

She was so energetic and was just as excited about our wedding to devote our love for one another as we were! We cannot express how grateful we are to her for making our day so special and magical! She was the perfect combination of wit and class. During our ceremony we had three flower girls that were under the age of three and they were somewhat of a destraction, however even through the distraction sue kept our guests focused on us.

She provided us with many samplings for all different types of ceremonies to help us build the perfect wedding ceremony for my wife and I. She was always quick to respond to any questions we had and we had a lot of them. I would recommend reverend Sue to anyone on their special day.

We couldn't be happier with Rev Sue's correspondence, thoughtfulness, and execution of our tailor made ceremony. My bride and I felt the importance of her words, and did not imagine anything better. She was warm and sincere and spoke slowly enough for all the words to sink in!!

It was a pleasure to have Rev Sue usher us through our special day - and she truly did help to make it special.

Reverend Sue helped my wife and I make our wedding even more beautiful than we could have imagined. She took the time to get to know us so that when she offered suggestions for our ceremony they were right on point with what we wanted. Any time we had a question about the ceremony she would respond to our emails within a day in order to resolve whatever issues might have come up. If anyone wants a personalized wedding that is completely amazing then they should definitely choose Reverend Sue.

Reverend Sue made our ceremony a perfect moment that we'll never forget. Even with my husband and I living out of state (NC), she went above and beyond to get to know us and write a ceremony that fit our personalities. Immediately after the ceremony, almost every guest commented that it was the best wedding they'd ever attended. She is energetic, genuine, and makes every guest feel a part of things. Our day wouldn't have been the same without her, and I'm so thankful we had her as our officiant!

We needed an officiant to "legalize" our commitment ceremony now that same-sex marriage is legal in NYS. We emailed Rev. Sue with about a week to go before our desired date. She was available, flexible, responsive and very reasonably priced. More importantly, she turned what we had envisioned as just a paper signing ceremony into a thoughtful and meaningful renewal of our vows that was inclusive of our family and absolutely perfect for us. I would absolutely recommend her for any occasion!

Reverend Sue co-officiated our interfaith wedding ceremony and it was amazing! She met with us twice, once with just the both of us and our second time was also with the rabbi. She met with us the night of our rehearsal and went through the ceremony with us. Throughout this very stressful time (as weddings can be very stressful), Reverend Sue was very professional, caring and supportive. She offered guidance and advice that was very helpful and thoughtful to both myself and my now husband! Thank you Reverend Sue for all that you have done for us! You helped make our wedding very special and memorable! :)

Reverend Sue was a joy to work with as we got ready for our wedding. We didn't really know what we wanted our ceremony to look like, but she gave us samples and guidance and put together a ceremony that fit us perfectly. All of our guests were saying how nice and one-of-a-kind our ceremony was.

We also asked to work with her for Pre-marital counseling. To me it was very important that I felt completely comfortable with the person we were talking to, and she was great. She really helped my husband and I work through our communications stumbles to be able to talk to each other about issues as they arise now.

Rev. Sue was the most wonderful person to officiate our wedding, she was so attentive to our special needs. We had family fly in from abroad and they felt so much part of the wedding because Rev. Sue took the extra effort to make them welcomed and part of the ceremony.

For my wife and I felt that Rev Sue customized our wedding vows to the letter and respected our wishes on what we wanted to say to each other, and was attentive to the fact that we had a multicultural service from various spans of religions and heritage, And she gave us advise on how to respect those that were and weren't with us in the ceremony. In other words she was a great mentor.

Everybody that I spoke loved the ceremony and how Rev. Sue presented that ceremony to all there was amazing.

In addition, when we needed additional advise, Rev. Sue helped with last minute details that made our wedding extra special.

With all sincerity we recommend Rev. Sue so that you to can have a wonderful wedding day, since this is one of the most major events in one's life.

Thank You Rev. Sue for all you did to make our day so special.

Reverend Sue is hands down the best person to have as your officiant. My husband and I were planning our wedding in the Catskills from our home in Atlanta which can present a lot of challenges to say the least. It also didn't help that we had no clue what we were doing. Rev. Sue was fantastic. She made a lot of suggestions that really made our ceremony special, and she put a lot of personal touches in that made it very "us". She picked up on our casual nature and our sense of humor, and made sure to interject some of her own throughout. After the ceremony, people asked us how long we knew her assuming we must have been friends long before and were shocked to find out otherwise. Everyone complimented us on the ceremony, and we could not have been more pleased!

From my own personal point of view, what I absolutely loved about her is the pure joy she takes in being an officiant. She really seriously loves being involved in this very special moment in 2 peoples lives, and loves to learn about you to make your ceremony special. She was a pleasure to work with, and my husband and I always looked forward to our chats on the phone. She took what could have been a very awkward and uncomfortable situation and made us completely at ease. You seriously can't ask for better!

We used Reverend Sue as our officiant for our wedding in September (2013). She was really great! Easy to work with and personalized the ceremony to include our son and focusing on things in our life to incorporate during the ceremony. We received many compliments follow the ceremony and wedding about our ceremony and how she seemed like she was a friend we had know for years. This after only meeting once in person and then communicating via skype and email as it was easier for me.

I really recommend Sue. She puts together a beautiful ceremony (once again very personalized) and is just a great person.

This provided us with a very personal celebration of who we were but also of our love for each other. Her preperation of the ceremony was flawless. I couldn't be happier with the level of professionalism combined with the personalization for us.

Reverend Sue was the perfect addition to our wedding. We were looking for someone who would perform the ceremony with all the religious professionalism as a priest, but with the warmth and compassion of one of our family members. Reverend Sue fell into our laps, as she came highly recommended from one of her colleagues. We could not have created someone who is easier to work with. Her genuine, honest nature makes you feel instantly comfortable and at ease. She treats moments of vulnerability with sensitivity and wants to help nurture lasting, loving marriages. Our ceremony was a reflection of who we are as people with all the dedication and sincerity of a true professional, Reverend Sue. We highly recommend working with Reverend Sue. She is wonderful to get along with and takes the time to do her very best. There is no doubt that she will not give you all of her with the utmost care and attention.

Not only did Rev. Sue create a perfect ceremony, she ensured that is was the perfect ceremony *for us*. My husband and I could not possibly have been more happy with Rev. Sue and the wonderful job she did at our wedding. All of our guests told us it was the most beautiful, personal ceremony they had ever attended. The reason? Rev. Sue really, actually got to know us as individuals and as a couple, and that was truly reflected in the ceremony she created for us. From the very beginning, she welcomed us and invested a lot of time finding out about our history and getting to know as as friends. She was helpful every step of the way, making recommendations, but also listening to all of our hopes and concerns, and responding to them to 100%, even the minutiae that I was picking at as a nervous bride who wanted everything "just right." . We knew that this was not just a job for her, but a pleasure, and her enjoyment in making our special day perfect for us was quite evident. In addition, she helped us write our vows, and coached us on putting the rings on one another, etc., so every little thing went off without a hitch at the ceremony-- nothing was overlooked. I would also like to mention that Rev. Sue didn't charge extra depending on how many "consultations" we had (they were numerous,) like some officiants do, and her fee was a tremendous value-- significantly lower than many officiants in the same region. If you are looking for an officiant who will really make your ceremony YOUR ceremony, and make it beautiful as well, trust Rev. Sue-- she is fabulous!

From the moment my wife and I met Rev. Sue, it felt like we had always known her, like catching up with an old friend over coffee.

Our ceremony was in my parents backyard and we only invited our immediate family (14 guests total), so having an officiant who felt like one of the family made our wedding all the more special.

Rev. Sue met with us once in person and then was in contact over email and Skype leading up to our ceremony (we live in Chicago). She was always quick to respond to our questions, and she had very helpful suggestions, without pushing us into anything.

She helped us create a ceremony that was beautiful, special and a complete reflection of us as a couple. It was perfect.

Reverend Sue was a gift from God. My wedding would not have been the same without her. Her services are invaluable. From the moment we met Reverend Sue she put our minds and hearts at ease. She has a calming presence and warm demeanor. She listened to us intently, and put forth extreme effort to make sure that everything we wanted was included in our ceremony. She helped us create a theme for a wedding that set the tone for the whole day- gratitude and God. She took care of every detail for me ensuring me peace of mind the day of the ceremony. She thought of every last detail, and made sure that everything was put in place. The only thing I needed to think about was enjoying the ceremony. She came up to say a special prayer with my family before the ceremony began. My family and friends loved her and she will forever hold a special place in our hearts. When we first met I was vey sad because I could not get married in the church. Reverend Sue told me God was everywhere and she would make sure I got the ceremony I dreamed of. She was true to her words. It was like a fairy tale, a dream come true. The nicest touch was Reverend Sue presented my husband and I with a copy of the ceremony as a keepsake. There are certain things that you will always remember about your wedding, for me one of those things is Reverend Sue.

She helped us create a theme for a wedding that set the tone for the whole day- gratitude and God. She took care of every detail for me ensuring me peace of mind the day of the ceremony. She thought of every last detail, and made sure that everything was put in place. The only thing I needed to think about was enjoying the ceremony. She came up to say a special prayer with my family before the ceremony began. My family and friends loved her and she will forever hold a special place in our hearts. When we first met I was vey sad because I could not get married in the church. Reverend Sue told me God was everywhere and she would make sure I got the ceremony I dreamed of. She was true to her words. It was like a fairy tale, a dream come true. The nicest touch was Reverend Sue presented my husband and I with a copy of the ceremony as a keepsake. There are certain things that you will always remember about your wedding, for me one of those things is Reverend Sue. Read less

I was so blessed to have met Sue. It was an honor to have her officiate our wedding. She was 100 dedicated to providing us a quality wedding program that celebrated my husband and me's unique relationship and love for each other. Sue was available 24/7 throughout the wedding planning process and was always available to provide my husband and I support. Sue is a beautiful person inside and out. My husband and I will definitely be keeping in touch with her now in our married lives - we are thankful to have acquired Sue as a new friend.

So we had an officiant lined up and he quit a month before the wedding. In our frantic WeddingWire search for a new officiant we found Reverend Sue - and I am SO HAPPPY we did!!! She was absolutely vital to the beauty and personality of our wedding. She crafted and put on the most amazingly heartfelt ceremony and there was not a dry eye in the room. She is so creative, kind and thoughtful and I was sad when the night ended and she had to go - I only hope we will all see each other again. Thank you so much Rev Sue!

Rev. Sue was the perfect officiant for us in every way. Upon meeting with her to discuss our wedding, we felt welcomed by her and comfortable immediately. Her warmth and kindness made it very easy for us to open up to her and the process of creating our own unique wedding ceremony began. From the first meeting we had with Rev. Sue until the wedding ceremony was finished, we were so happy with her services and the process of our wedding ceremony. Sue put together many drafts and multiple different pieces for us to choose and helped us find the words to express our relationship. She made the process fun and was always available to us and open for changes. She listened to us with her heart and expressed our love and spirituality perfectly. Sue even took the time to explain to us wedding processes and formalities since the first wedding we attended was our own. The services we received from Sacred Celebrations were exceptional. Rev. Sue is a beautiful person, the kind of person that you want to perform services for your special day. We feel very lucky to have found Sacred Celebrations and very highly recommend her, you will not be disappointed!

Reverend Sue was awesome. This was the second marriage for the both of us so we weren't sure who should preside over our ceremony. We got lucky when we found Rev. Sue . She established a wonderful rapport and we became very comfortable with her.

Sue ensured everything was perfect. She met with us to gain additional information about what we wanted to accomplish. Her recommendations were excellent and she shared all the material with us in advance. She made everything easy by taking care of each step of the wedding ceremony.
One of our guests mentioned she wished she had Rev. Sue perform her wedding ceremony.
It was a blessed event and we have Rev. Sue to thank!

It was an absolute pleasure working with Reverend Sue. She took her time to get to know me and my husband and met with us one few different occasions. Considering that I am Ukrainian, it was important for me to keep some of my native traditions in the weeding. Sue was happy to learn about the traditions and she did a beautiful job incorporating them into the ceremony. Overall, she made our ceremony incredibly personal and meaningful.

Sue is a very special person. Not knowing it at the time that I contacted her to be the officiate for my wedding, she was the chaplain for my mom six months earlier. This was truly a sign from my mom. Anyone who knows the work Hospice does, also knows how kind and understanding all the people are that work for this wonderful organization. With that being said, I knew the ceremony would be exactly what I was hoping for and it was, perfect!

Reverand Sue made our entire marriage process from the first meeting to the actual wedding day, special in every sence of the word. From her flexbability to her unique ceremonial style, we could not imagine our wedding without her! Even today we are still getting compliments on our ceremony. People were convinced we had known Sue our whole lives. Sue spent many hours getting to know us and during those meetings she was able to provide us with a non traditional, warm, and intimate ceremony that will be remembed for the rest of our lives.

"Sue made our day very special. She personalized the ceremony and captured everything detail that we were looking for to express our love. Sue was able to modify the ceremony to incorporate both our religious backgrounds. Sue was able to articulate the importance of remembering our dad's in a subtle manor, not to make the evening sad but very happy. She tapered the ceremony adding the significance of blending our family, which was vital to include our children in a special way. We were thrilled to have her officiate and many of our guests raved about how special the ceremony was, which reflected the work that Sue put into the preparation of the day".

Sue is a really wonderful and caring person. She took the time to find out as much as she could about us and crafted a service to reflect my and my husband's personalities and our relationship together. I loved how it came out in the end. She was always just an email or phone call away to answer any questions about anything - wedding related or not. Her answers and advice were always great and something that we can take with us into our new life together.
