Ruth guided us through the entire process of crafting our wonderful wedding ceremony. She made it clear that we could incorporate whichever elements were meaningful to us into our ceremony, and that it would totally reflect our preferences. She was very helpful with offering us material to look through to help us design the wedding ceremony we had always dreamed of.

We had six months to plan and our ceremony script was pretty well finalized four months before our wedding day, so it was one thing that was never a worry. Ruth's friendliness and professionalism set the perfect tone for our ceremony and all of our guests commented that she was the perfect Celebrant for us. Thank you, Ruth! You certainly were instrumental in making our ceremony exactly as we had hoped it would be and our day stress-free and fun!

Ruth performed a beautiful ceremony. She listened to our requests & developed a ceremony that was unique & individualized. Ruth was a dream to work with. We were both nervous during the ceremony, but her calming voice & warmth made us at ease. Our guests we impressed at the presentation of our ceremony. I would highly recommend Ruth as your officiant.

After reading many excellent reviews we decided to contact Ruth to see if she would be available to officiate our wedding. Our wedding was two weeks away and by some small miracle she was available. Though we had a limited amount of time to get to know one another, Ruth made every effort to cover as much ground as possible before our big day. Our ceremony was both meaningful and memorable. Ruth is a true professional with a warm heart and a light that shines brightly from within. We would happily recommend her to others.

Ruth walked us through preparation for the ceremony every step of the way. The ceremony script, written by her over the course of several months and drafts with feedback from my wife and me, was tailored so well that our guests said that it was as if she had known us for years. Professional, reliable, and willing to go the extra mile for us, we highly recommend her services.

Ruth was our wedding celebrant and did an excellent job. We got married in St.Louis but planned the wedding from out of town and were so lucky to have found Ruth. She was professional, helpful and prompt with email communications as we planned our ceremony. Because we had no idea how to plan a ceremony she helped walk us through it and on the day of was pleasant and encouraging. Everyone loved her warmth and kindness!

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.

Your ceremony had a lot of "moving parts," but it all came together beautifully. Congratulations, Jill and Danny!
