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

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.

Almost at the first meeting with Susan, we decided to hire her. Susan took very careful note of our story when we met. Throughout the process Susan was able to work back and forth several times with us to get our story correct. Susan was always professional, polite, kind and with a loving heart. I especially like her speech during the ceremony, it was just touching and remarkable. I will definitely would recommend Susan.

Susan was an absolute delight to work with. Not only is she professional, creative, and kind, but she really puts effort into making the ceremony about you. The first time that my then-fiancé and I had "met" her was via a Skype call, in which she asked us a few simple questions, then some personal ones. She jotted down notes throughout the entire conversation, making sure she had all of the information correct. As our wedding date slowly approached, she then asked us both for a paragraph about one another. This was an interesting exercise that truly made our big day that much more special, as there were hints of personalization sprinkled throughout the entire ceremony. If you're looking for an officiant who is genuine and caring, and will make your wedding about you, then I highly recommend using Susan Turchin.

I'm so glad we found Susan. Although her price was higher than other providers, it was certainly worth it. Everyone raved about our ceremony. Susan took the time to develop a personalized and detailed ceremony uniquely crafted for us. She has a great calming presence. As an interfaith couple it was important that we find someone that could incorporate elements of both our faiths and cultures and she did so seamlessly. Would definitely recommend.
