Ruth officiated our wedding and we loved her! She helped us put together a personalized ceremony so that both of our personalities could shine through. Some guests even commented that they felt like it truly embodied our relationship. We weren't sure what to do for our ceremony because we come from a multi-faith background so Ruth gave us lots of options to help make everyone feel included. Not only was she extremely professional through the whole process, we could tell she was passionate about what she does. We had lots of hiccups on our big day with venues, but Ruth was very helpful and accommodating through it all. If we had to go back and change anything about our big day Ruth would be the one thing we kept the same.

We can not say enough nice things about Ruth. She is incredible and we are so lucky to have worked with her on our wedding ceremony. From the moment we met Ruth, we were at ease and knew that she was the person we wanted as our wedding officiant. She is extremely inclusive of all of our ideas, offered suggestions when we asked, and wrote a beautiful ceremony for us. Ruth was great to work with through the entire process.

During the ceremony, she made us feel at ease, filled the ceremony with emotion, and had a great relationship with our entire wedding party. After the ceremony, so many of our guests wanted to meet her because the ceremony was that good! We got rave reviews from our guests about how beautiful and personal the ceremony was, and we contribute that to Ruth. She takes the time to really get to know both people and to make sure that their history, interests, etc. are a part of the ceremony. I'm so glad that we chose to go with her rather than a more traditional "cookie cutter" ceremony where we just insert our names.

Ruth Ellen was the officiant for my wedding last month. I could not have imagined a more ideal person to work with. She is flexible, friendly, organized, and very knowledgeable. I planned my wedding from out of town and she was always quick to respond via email and available to speak on the phone. She was friendly and efficient for the rehearsal and at the wedding. Everyone who met her enjoyed her. I am so glad she was part of our wedding day!

Thank you for reviewing my work with you and Tommy! It was particularly fun celebrating your wedding with two self-described "history nerds" at the MO History Museum.

My new wife and I are so thrilled we found Ruth and chose her to officiate our wedding! She is extremely easy to work with, whether your ceremony is standard or unique. She has a wealth of source material she can provide you if you're looking for special touches, enhancements, and readings. Always available via email for any questions, and delivered a script of our wedding with plenty of time for us to review and approve. Of course, we didn't need any changes to the script, because it was exactly what we had asked for. At the ceremony, Ruth is extremely calming for the bride and groom (she also attends the rehearsal and can help you prepare) and helpful with filing the marriage license. We highly recommend her services, our family and friends continue to rave about her!

Ruth Ellen Hasser was absolutely sensational, she provided even more than expected. Ruth is very calm and well spoken. She understood exactly what kind of ceremony we wanted to have, and executed it perfectly. Many of our guests commented on how engaging Ruth was, she told the story of how we met and fell in love and completely captured all of our guests attention. Ruth was also comforting to have marry us, she was happy to let us take a moment and breath every so often during our vows. We were married in the Missouri Botanical Gardens, and Ruth already knew the sound doesn't carry well there so the took it upon herself to bring her own microphone, this really impressed me, because i wanted all our guests to be able to hear the ceremony. Something else that proves Ms. Hasser goes above and beyond was the fact that she was willing to step to the side when we were announced husband and wife so she wouldn't be in the background of our photos. She's so incredibly thoughtful!

Ruth Ellen Hasser was the officiant for our May wedding, and both my husband and I couldn't be happier with how our ceremony turned out. We live in Brooklyn but married in St. Louis, and we found her to be very flexible and patient with long-distance planning. She walked us through every step of the way. We wanted a high level of customization for our ceremony, and we feel we achieved that—we picked all the readings, and Ruth gave us lots of great tips for writing our own vows. We designed our own unity ritual, and she also helped us with that. Overall, I would definitely recommend working with her on your special day.
