Do you want a personal ceremony to remember forever?

By listening to the story of your relationship, your hopes for your wedding day and your dreams for your future, I will create a ceremony with you to always remember - one that will have you and your guests smiling, laughing, maybe crying (tears of joy!) and definitely, raving. My goal is to create the best ceremony you and your guests have ever experienced.

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."

From our first appointment to your wedding day, I will lead you through a process to create the ceremony of your dreams. 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 your marriage.

Together we will review all of the parts of a wedding ceremony so you will see what we can create. I will give you lots of ideas and be open to your ideas. Whether you write your own vows or choose from samples, I will help you craft vows that are personal and deeply meaningful. My goal is to create a ceremony that you love from beginning to end, filled with personal touches.

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

Greg and I could not have asked for a better choice in Rev Sue for our wedding. Sue took the time to get to know us and made the ceremony very personal. Sue was warm, caring and very professional. She made the preparation very easy and did all she could to relieve any stress. All the guests had such positive comments about the ceremony and they also felt Sue had taken he time to really get to know us and that was reflected in tour ceremony. I could not have been more pleased. I highly recommend Rev Sue she was just wonderful.

My husband and I had our wedding ceremony on Halloween, but we were unable to make our marriage "official" at that time. When the time finally came that we could get everything officially signed, we contacted Rev. Sue about doing a very, VERY, brief ceremony on Valentine's Day. Rev. Sue was incredibly helpful and seemed to know exactly what we were looking for. After traveling out in the freezing cold, she performed our mini-ceremony in our kitchen. Despite the completely informal and short service, Rev. Sue STILL managed to make our ceremony beautiful and heartfelt. Thank you, Rev. Sue! You are an amazing person, and we are so glad to have found you! ~ Julie & Al

My review may be a little biased, as Rev Sue is also my stepmother, but I am so grateful to have had her officiate our ceremony. Sue has known me and my husband for the past 9 or so years, yet still took the time to get to know us as a couple. She created our ceremony to reflect who we are as individuals and as one. She had suggestions along the way, took our desires into account, and was always available for any questions. Our ceremony was perfect (even with our chipmunk party crasher) and we are so pleased with the end result. Our guests have told me how special and personal our ceremony was, the best they have seen! We did not have a videographer and I wish we did because I've said many times since our wedding that if I could see one part of our day again, it would be our ceremony. Sue helped make our day that much more perfect!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! <3

My husband-to-be and I decided early on to seek some kind of premarital counseling so that we could have a structured way to have some of the hard conversations about what we both hoped for and expected out of the life we would build together. This took two forms. We met with a financial adviser about making a plan for combining finances. Then we set out to find someone who could help us talk about everything else we needed to discuss.

At the same time as we were looking for this mystery person, we were also trying to figure out what to do about the ceremony. His faith was Catholic and mine was an evolving blend of Quaker, Protestant, and Unitarian influences. We both wanted to get married outdoors, which we knew would be at odds with Catholic doctrine. We also wanted our outdoor ceremony to reflect our values, show deep respect to all of our faith traditions, and be welcoming to our many friends and family who have a great diversity of faiths and values and gender identities and valid questions about the institution of marriage. Because he was not an active member of a parish and my UU church was undergoing a major shift in leadership, we weren't sure who to have perform this ceremony.

So in a quest for both premarital counseling and an officiant, we took to the internet. Finding Rev. Sue was such a stroke of luck, and our meetings with her were an amazing and grounding journey towards discovering our own mutual understanding of what a marriage is, and what kind of marriage we want. We met with Rev Sue for about 8 months leading up to the wedding for pre-marital counseling, both in person and by skype when my husband's leg was broken. She created a safe atmosphere for us to share our biggest hopes and fears, and provided the structures we needed to discuss the hard stuff. After getting to know us and our values, she also helped us to plan a ceremony that fulfilled everything we needed. It was an incredible process, and we are so grateful.

Rev. Sue is simply amazing! From her very first email response all the way until our wedding day ceremony, she was always so thoughtful, enthusiastic, and genuine. The first time my husband and I met Rev. Sue, we immediately knew she was the right person to officiate our wedding ceremony. Her personality radiates warmth and positivity, and it is clear that she is passionate about what she does. She has a great deal of knowledge about different types of ceremonies, readings, etc. that helped guide us along the way and answered all of our questions. We decided early on to write our own vows, and Rev. Sue gave us many helpful tips, advice, and thoughtful feedback. When the time came to review our ceremony plan, it was clear that she spent a lot of time planning the ceremony to reflect who we are and what we envisioned for our wedding day. The end result was incredible! We had guests coming up to us afterward complimenting Rev. Sue and telling us that our ceremony was one of the most personal and touching weddings they had ever been to. We have absolutely no regrets in choosing Rev. Sue and are thrilled that she officiated our special day!

We are beyond grateful that we found Rev. Sue to officiate our wedding. She is such a kind, generous, lovely person and couldn't have found someone better to be part of our wedding ceremony. Rev. Sue took the time to get to know us as a couple and really wanted to make the ceremony as special as we did. She also took the time to meet our families and understood how important they were to us as well. We decided to write our own vows and she guides us through the process with ease. We were so nervous on the day and she made us feel so calm. I never imagined my ceremony being so meaningful and we have Rev. Sue to thank for that. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to Rev. Sue. We couldn't have done it with out you!!

From the moment we met with Rev. Sue in her beautiful Rockport home, we felt completely comfortable and at ease, and it didn't take much deliberation to decide that she would be the right person to conduct our ceremony. During our initial meeting, Rev. Sue asked us many questions about our relationship and what we meant to each other, and she took great care to work those details into the ceremony. My husband and I really wanted our ceremony to reflect what our relationship means to us, and Sue was able to write and deliver a ceremony that perfectly reflects our feelings for each other and the life we hope to build. Not only does Rev. Sue radiate warmth and kindness, but she is also extremely professional and helpful. My husband and I decided to write our own vows, and Sue was able to make great suggestions for edits. With Rev. Sue's guidance, my husband and I were able to exchange very heartfelt words during a ceremony that really felt like "us". During the reception, multiple people told us they loved the ceremony and how genuine it felt. All of my close friends cried. To sum up, we are so pleased not only to have had Sue officiate our ceremony, but, also, to have met a person who is so deeply passionate about people, life, spirituality, and love. Thank you so much!

Reverend Sue was a fantastic mentor for us to prepare for our Marriage. Her advice was wise, her words were kind, and she was super helpful when helping us work on our ceremony and vows. The ceremony was perfect. Could not have asked for a better spiritual officiant!
