Ceremonies created to reflect your personal style and beliefs.

Words that illuminate your thoughts and feelings.

Rituals uniquely meaningful to you.


Congratulations! You are getting married. And if you are reading this web page you are probably not connected to a worship community or a clergy person who can perform your wedding ceremony. Well now you can relax, knowing that I have worked with hundreds of couple like you, creating a wedding ceremony that is not from any book, but created just for you.

Your ceremony is about the two of you, the very personal expression of your beliefs, your traditions, your relationship, and your path together. As a unique couple, you have your own particular style, and your ceremony will resonate with your style and beliefs. My goal and intention is to be of service to you, to take your thoughts and feels and translate them into the words that will unite your lives. Read less

Our experience with Susan was tremendous and couldn't have had aked for a better officiant for our special day. From the first time we met Susan made us feel comfortable and was very calming throughout the process. Her work is creative and considers all the personal aspects you could want in an intimate, touching ceremony. She was truly accommodating and professional in every aspect and took the time to get to know us before putting any pen to paper. On the day of the wedding everything went so well even with some last minute additions (literally)!!! It was only a perfect celebration and ceremony because of people like Susan and we can't thank her enough. Susan's experience, calmness, and personality were invaluable and we only wish shecould have stayed with us longer for dinner.

We received so many compliments on the ceremony and how it was so natural, heart-felt, and touching. Now we fully understand why Susan and her services received such great recommendations!!!!!

Susan was wonderful!! We selected Susan after a last minute scramble to find an officiant during the final month before our wedding. Due to unforeseen issues, we were left 30 days out with no one to conduct our ceremony and no idea where to begin.

After a weekend of internet searching, we scheduled 5 interviews with a variety of celebrants. Susan was our final interview. During our initial consultation, she spent nearly an hour and a half on a skype call with us, and in this time we quickly saw what separates her from others in her industry.

Susan was the first officiant we interviewed who made the conversation about US! She asked us questions that we had not even asked each other - about our relationship, families, goals for the future, how we met, why were getting married, etc. It was insightful and made us feel like a team for the first time in the planning process. Although she was more expensive than others we interviewed, we knew her service would be worth it because she was bringing such a great value and talent and attentiveness to our wedding day that no one else seemed to be able to offer.

The ceremony itself was truly unique to us. Most officiants we interviewed crafted their ceremonies from templates and had us fill in the blanks, so to speak. Susan, instead, used the content of our conversations and interviews to write an original ceremony that captured our relationship. We reviewed two drafts of the ceremony before finalizing it, and the process was smooth and touching and professional. My husband and I also liked that she had us speak to her and also send emails to her separately because she understands that some people articulate themselves better in writing than orally.

On the day of our ceremony, Susan also brought sincerity and warmth. She made herself available for a brief rehearsal, and she delivered the ceremony with grace. We could not have been more pleased!

We booked Susan for our legal ceremony ahead of our destination wedding on November 12, 2016. She was very responsive to us right from the start, and even though we needed someone sort of last minute (and on a day she was already booked) she still managed to squeeze us in and was very flexible on the time and location! She personalized everything for us and kept it quick and easy which is exactly what we wanted! Our family asked us a few times how long we knew her and they were surprised to learn we had only just met her that day for the first time!

She was a dream to work with and I would highly recommend her if you are looking for an officiant in NYC. We received our marriage license in the mail without issue a few weeks later. THANK YOU SUSAN! :)

Susan was the best officiant we could have imagined. She worked with us to personalize a ceremony that incorporated the mix we sought of religious tradition and personal touches. Many of our guests said it was the most heartfelt wedding ceremony they had ever witnessed! Even our parents, who had been disappointed we weren't planning to marry in a church, said it was the most honest reflection of US as a couple and our commitment to each other. Susan was also a pleasure to work with professionally leading up to the wedding. She was very responsive and accommodating, and I would recommend her to anyone!

Susan was called upon literally 4 days before my spontaneous wedding, and she responded immediately to our plea for an officiant... She was completely devoted to make our nuptials as special as possible despite such short notice and prep time... She was purely LOVELY!!! Her energy and cheer was infectious and our request of having a "fun and spirited" ceremony was a success thanks to Susan!!! Strongly recommended... Thank you Susan for making our day that much more special...

Susan has such a warm and pleasant manner. She commands attention but also conveys a softness that made for a perfect, beautiful ceremony that our friends are still raving about. She was a true pleasure to work with and was open to customizing our ceremony just for us to reflect our beliefs and preferences. She listens well, made herself readily available to us and is someone with whom I hope to stay in touch beyond our nuptials.
