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!

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.

Ruth was an amazing officiant for our Spring wedding! She was professional, listened to what we wanted for the ceremony, was very organized, provided good suggestions and all around great during the planning process. She also arranged to discuss the ceremony over Skype since we were an out of town couple. During the ceremony itself, she spoke very well, had a good sense of humor when the groom misspoke his vows and was great at calming my nerves as I was struggling to get through my vows. I also received many compliments on her after the ceremony! I highly recommend Ruth to anyone looking for a wedding officiant!

We found Ruth Ellen on Wedding Wire and after reading her personal website and reviews I was eager to meet in person. Being from out of town was never an issue, she was very accommodating. From day one she was very professional and personable. I had no doubt in my mind that I wanted her to be the officiant on our special day. I could tell she was well versed, which was comforting considering we were a couple who had very little idea of what we wanted in a ceremony. She guided us every step of the way by asking questions and listening to feedback. Ruth did an amazing job, our wedding was perfect! I would recommend her to anyone!

Ruth is such an amazing person to work with- we feel so lucky that she was the celebrant for our wedding ceremony. My husband and I planned our wedding from out of town and were very concerned about finding an officiant who could capture our personalities, spirituality and love for each other in a ceremony despite never meeting in person before the big day. Ruth allowed us to have total control over the ceremony script- we were able to tell "our story", create unique vows and readings, and include family members in nontraditional ways to make the ceremony special and meaningful. Many guests came through the receiving line with tears in their eyes, saying that it was one of the most beautiful and special services they've ever attended. Ruth is humble and tried to give us the credit for writing the script, but in truth it was her delivery and remarks that made everything so lovely. During the ceremony Ruth paused briefly between readings and recitations to quietly ask my husband and I how we were were doing- did we need to wipe away a tear, take a deep breath, etc. It was so wonderful to have those quick moments during the ceremony to make sure that we felt good with the service and also to help us appreciate the memories we were creating.

Ruth Ellen Hasser performed our ceremony and she was fantastic! Neither one of us is religious, but we still wanted a meaningful, sentimental ceremony. She helped us write the ceremony and gave us suggestions for readings, vows, and other accents that would make our day special. She was 100% flexible and would have modified the ceremony any way we liked. Best of all, she was great at helping us through the ceremony on the day, because I was a nervous wreck! Our wedding was amazingly beautiful - thank you St. Louis Ceremonies!

Christy, it was fun to work with you and Michael. With the last minute changes we made due to so much rain, we still pulled off a lovely ceremony. Congratulations!

Ruth was absolutely perfect. My husband and I were able to meet with her before the wedding to talk about how we wanted our ceremony and what we would like to include, how religious we wanted the ceremony to be and the coordination of different people who would be in our wedding. She sent us many sample vows and readings, so that we did not have to go searching on the internet by ourselves, which was a huge help. She was a totally calm, professional and warm presence through the whole wedding process. I could not have hoped to have a better officiant for our wedding!

Our ceremony was just beautiful and Ruth was highly communicative and open every step of the way. She displayed outstanding flexibility with planning and was thoroughly professional when we let her know that, due to circumstances outside of our control, the ceremony had to pushed back half an hour. Everyone that attended the ceremony has specifically mentioned what a good job she did, and how the ceremony so perfectly matched our personalities. She was extremely thorough and made sure well beforehand that we were getting the ceremony we wanted--she had lots of ideas and suggestions for non-typical readings--and made a point of honoring the guests who had traveled very far to help make the day special. She also did a great job of staying calm and being a calming presence as both of us were overwhelmed with excitement up in front of the crowd. We are truly grateful for Ruth's involvement with our ceremony.

Ruth was an amazing celebrant to work with. We planned a lot of our wedding from Pennsylvania, and we did not officially meet her until our rehearsal. When we spoke on the phone for a consultation we just knew by her friendly personality that she was who we wanted to marry us. Ruth was so accommodating, and she made sure every aspect of our wedding ceremony was exactly as we wanted it. During the wedding ceremony she kept myself and my groom very calm and collected. For any couple who's looking for an original and personal wedding ceremony Ruth is the very best.

Ruth was an absolute gem to work with. From our initial meeting to post wedding questions she was always prompt with her response. She did an amazing job officiating the ceremony and really helped us to make it truly unique and representative of us. We had a variety of faiths and beliefs and wanted to honour that, but we also wanted to make sure we represented our love and our beliefs. Our guests are still talking about how amazing the ceremony was and how much they could feel the love. Thank you Ruth!

We found Ruth on Wedding Wire, and so we were hesitant until we met with her in-person. Immediately she asked a ton of questions to figure out what sort of couple we were and what sort of ceremony we envisioned. She allowed us time to think it over, but we ended up booking her on the spot. Following the meeting she sent us tons of sample vows, blessings, readings, etc. so that we could get some ideas of what we wanted in our ceremony. She also sent us a questionnaire to fill out separately so that she could get our own interpretations of each other and our relationship. She used our selections and the questionnaire to develop a truly personal ceremony and sent us the draft well in advance of the big day. She accepted our few changes, and sent us the finalized draft weeks before. And, little did I know, but she worked with my fiance to surprise me during the ceremony. We were married at the Zoo and my fiance bought a personalized brick at the ceremony site to mark the occasion. He contacted Ruth to incorporate this in the ceremony, and Ruth tied this into a unity ritual. I was completely surprised and impressed that she was able to develop such a history to tie this gift into the ceremony so well. She was the utmost professional, and we will happily refer her.

I contacted Ruth to set up a meeting with her and my (now) wife, and when we sat down, Ruth was completely professional, prepared, and ready to accomodate. In that first meeting she not only showed us that she knew what she was doing, and how to put together that was completely tailored to what my wife and I wanted out of our ceremony. She assuaged any fears we had that there were specific parts of the ceremony that we couldn't customize, and really took the time to get to know us then so that we could, together, create our perfect ceremony. My wife and I didn't really have many specifics, and Ruth was brilliant in providing us with many examples or readings, songs, poems, prayers, and vows. I cannot stress enough how easy Ruth made it for us to put together a ceremony we would love. She was ready and open to anything.

When it came time for the rehearsal and ceremony, Ruth was even more prepared. Weeks in advance she had a draft of what the ceremony looked like, and we were able to quickly finalize things. Our wedding party had 16 total individuals, but Ruth had no trouble corralling us all, and helping us go through the ceremony step-by-step so that it would go off without a hitch the next day–and that it did. On the day of, she was there plenty early and ready to start. She ran through everything with us briefly once more, and then it was time. It was beautiful, and truly everything my wife and I could ever have hoped for. It was a perfect representation of our partnership, and the love and respect we had for not only each other, but each and every person present at the ceremony. Everyone we spoke to commented on how wonderful the ceremony it was, and we know it wasn't lip service. Ruth took the time and energy to really work with us, get to know us, and put together something that will be with us forever. All that to say, I cannot recommend Ruth Hasser enough to anyone looking for any kind of traditional or alternative ceremony.

Ruth was very great to work with especially when our main concern was getting the ceremony we wanted. All of our friends and family have commented how wonderful the service was and how it truly represented our love for each other, very personal. In addition my husband is deaf and she was more than able to work out a ceremony that he was easily able to participate in. This is what we wanted for our wedding and she had no problems accommodating. She is a great woman and is able to get a large group working right at rehearsal. I am so glad that we found her for our ceremony and recommend her to anyone who is looking to craft the ceremony they want for their special day.

Ruth was a wonderful wedding officiant. We chose to have our wedding at a B & B in Hannibal as it was a central location for family and friends. The B & B had a wedding package that included a minister, who turned out to have a fundamentalist perspective. As we have lived in many places and learned about many faiths, this was not going to work for us. So with less than a month left until the big day I emailed four officiants Sunday afternoon. The next morning I got a call from Ruth. She had gotten several requests but called me because she likes to serve rural areas that don't have non-traditional officiants. We made an appointment to visit by phone after we had a chance to review files Ruth would send.

Ruth sent files so we were able to design our wedding and select our blessings, readings, prayers, marriage and ring vows. My mother passed away five years ago and I felt her loss acutely at this time. Ruth suggested remembrances during the ceremony for her and my husband's parents . Our ceremony was truly a reflection of who we are and what we wanted to share with our families and friends. People were genuinely touched. Ruth had such a warm and wonderful way of addressing us and everyone gathered. Ruth introduced herself to many of our guests; it was evident that she could make everyone feel at home.

Ruth came upstairs to see me very shortly before the ceremony. She sat down and asked how I was doing. She seemed prepared to hear anything from me. I really appreciated having a quiet moment to simply relax and reflect on how I was feeling as I was preparing for this big event that I was basically in charge of. This quiet pause in the middle of everything was so welcome, and I didn't even know I needed it!

Ruth was a wonderful wedding officiant. We chose to have our wedding at a B & B in Hannibal as it was a central location for family and friends. The B & B had a wedding package that included a minister, who turned out to have a fundamentalist perspective. As we have lived in many places and learned about many faiths, this was not going to work for us. So with less than a month left until the big day I emailed four officiants Sunday afternoon. The next morning I got a call from Ruth. She had gotten several requests but called me because she likes to serve rural areas that don't have non-traditional officiants. We made an appointment to visit by phone after we had a chance to review files Ruth would send.

Ruth sent files so we were able to design our wedding and select our blessings, readings, prayers, marriage and ring vows. My mother passed away five years ago and I felt her loss acutely at this time. Ruth suggested remembrances during the ceremony for her and my husband's parents . Our ceremony was truly a reflection of who we are and what we wanted to share with our families and friends. People were genuinely touched. Ruth had such a warm and wonderful way of addressing us and everyone gathered. Ruth introduced herself to many of our guests; it was evident that she could make everyone feel at home.

From the moment we met up with Ruth we both knew she was the right person to officiate our ceremony. She listened to what was important to us and guided us through the process from day 1. There was never a time where I felt I couldn’t reach out to her and ask questions or tweak things regarding our ceremony. Her responses were always quick and helpful too. She brought a professional, fun and also caring tone to our ceremony.

We had plenty of our guests, after it was finished mention that it was the most original & unique non-traditional wedding that they’ve been a part of, I loved hearing that & it’s a testament to how well Ruth does what she does.

Ruth was incredibly professional, helpful, and kind.

We were looking for an officiant that would be responsive to our needs and vision for our ceremony. Though Ruth adapts and caters to each individual couple, we were looking for a non-religious, semi-traditional ceremony. Another aspect that was important to us was the officiant should be respectful of all couples - regardless of their sexuality. Though we are male and female, we have many friends that are not afforded the same luxury of marrying that a man and a woman currently have in many parts of the country. We were pleased to learn that Ruth performs civil ceremonies of all kinds, as well as ceremonies for other milestones. Anything we can do to support others who do this is important to us.

Additionally, we both have PhDs and I (the bride) did not change my name. We needed someone who was willing to introduce us in a particular way, instead of, "Mr. and Mrs. ____."

Beyond these points, though, Ruth was outstanding. She was informed, responsive, and quick to answer questions and concerns. On the actual wedding day, I viewed her as a calming presence before the ceremony. She was actually the last person I saw before I walked down the aisle, as she was reviewing her notes in the bridal suite. During the ceremony, it was clear she had rehearsed and gone over all the points that were important to us to emphasize. We were able to completely customize the entire ceremony - ring vows, vows, the way everyone proceeded down the aisle, etc. She was very flexible and willing to go with whatever we came up with. She also provided a lot of helpful information in terms of previous vows and wedding styles others had used.

One of the most touching and memorable pieces, though, was something that happened during our very first meeting. We had not retained her services yet, and we were just going over the particulars of what we wanted during the ceremony. I had just recently lost a close family member of mine, and I was still very tender. She inquired whether or not we wanted to honor loved ones during the ceremony, and I of course got to thinking about my family member, and just burst into tears, right there in the Panera Bread Co. we were meeting at. I had only known Ruth for 30 minutes, but she was just so comforting and KIND. I felt this immense warmth from her - I felt that she cared very much for me. She did not pressure me to stop crying, just sat with us patiently as I explained my recent situation. She shared some kind words with me as I wiped my tears, and I knew after that moment that we had found a perfect fit.

I cannot express how much Ruth meant to us during our entire wedding process. She was just phenomenal.

Ruth was great! When we met her, we were at ease with her personality and way of doing things. She gave us assistance and advice but let us choose how we wanted to design our own wedding ceremony. My wife and I came from different religious backgrounds, so designing our own ceremony made things much less complicated. Ruth was very friendly, helpful, professional, well-prepared, and reasonably priced! I would recommend her to anyone who wants to have a great ceremony and make sure that it suits your needs perfectly! Blake Schade

From our first meeting with her we knew she would be the perfect fit, as she was warm and funny and clearly invested in helping us to achieve the exact kind of ceremony we envisioned. My husband and I wanted to write our own vows and Ruth helped us complete what initially felt like a very difficult endeavor. Her suggestions and guidance got us started, but in the end she let us have the final word on all aspects of the ceremony which we really appreciated.

Ruth helped us craft the perfect ceremony, incredibly personal and totally reflective of who we are as individuals and as a couple. We received so many compliments from our guests on the ceremony and we can not recommend Ruth highly enough!

My husband and I loved working with Ruth Hasser! Since we are non-practicing Catholics from Catholic families, we wanted our ceremony to be meaningful to us and something that fit our personalities. Ruth helped us craft the perfect ceremony and vows that we adored. She provided us with enough information to let us shape the ceremony elements to perfectly reflect how we feel about each other. She was very accessible via email and phone. She was very professional and personable during the entire process and really put us at ease since we chose to have an outdoor ceremony (something our families were both unfamiliar with). If we could pick our officiant all over again, I wouldn't choose anyone except Ruth!

Ruth performed our marriage ceremony in November. She was very easy & fun to work with. We met with her in person to interview her and then worked with her via email communication to complete a couples questionnaire. She had numerous weddings at the same time so she was a little delayed in getting us our first draft but she kept us updated as to her progress.

We edited the first draft and were satisfied with it. She came to our rehearsal and we worked through any last questions. She was prompt and professional and we had no fears that there would be any mishaps.

The wedding day went without a hitch and she performed a fun and llovely ceremony. She took care of all of the license details for us so that we wouldn't have to worry about it.

Ruth did a fantastic job with our ceremony. We had a few unique touches in it and she helped us review and mold our ceremony into exactly what we wanted. Many drafts were sent back and forth to ensure that she knew each detail and had it precise. During our wedding, Ruth was gracious and kind. She walked us through each step and helped calm our nerves by whispering what was coming next and praising our tearful vows.
Aside from there being a mix up with our rehearsal date that made Ruth unable to be apart of the process, she was there guiding us each step of the way and I am so happy that she was the woman who married us.
