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

Having Susan officiate our wedding was a truly wonderful experience. I should note that my fiance and I contacted Susan with less than a couple of weeks to go before our wedding and even in a very short timeframe, she managed to create a wedding service that we will never forget. The sentiment that was invoked and how personal Susan made the service to our relationship was so very touching. Her praises were sung, by even our toughest customers, all throughout our reception and after. We are grateful to Susan for putting her heart and soul into an occasion that was so very special for us and we are happy to have had her help us start our lives together. She is recommended in the highest regard.

Susan was great. She created a beautiful ceremony with very short notice, listened to our comments and adapted perfectly, and was very efficient during the rehearsal in getting everyone to pay attention! Our guests thought it was great and unique. Also, reasonably priced!

Susan was amazing to work with! We were hoping to have an intercultural ceremony but had no idea how to blend the two into one cohesive ceremony. Susan stepped in and had some amazing ideas on how to blend the two cultures together. In the end we had a cohesive ceremony that respected both sides of our cultures and we couldn't have done it without Susan! I have gotten so many compliments from our guests saying how touching and meaningful our ceremony was to them. It was our favorite part of our special day, and something we will always hold close to our hearts. Thank you Susan!!!!!!

Susan was our officiant for our wedding at the Gramercy Park Hotel. We met with her a few months before the wedding to talk about how we met and to learn more about our relationship. She used this information and beautifully incorporated it into our wedding ceremony. She was extremely attentive and responsive. She was very respectful of all of our ideas and open to any suggestions which was great. We felt she understood the tone and style of the ceremony we hoped to have and on the wedding day everything went smoothly. We are grateful for her efforts and would highly recommend her to couples looking to get married. Thank you Susan!

My fiance and I had a wonderful time meeting Susan and talking about what marriage is to us and what our goals are for our life together. She really helped me think about what marriage means to me and why I love my (now) husband. She is a wonderful listener and asked lots of questions to get to know us. She wrote a unique and creative wedding ceremony and we had many round of revisions which she was happy to work on. When the day came for the rehearsal and wedding she was organized and had a wonderful calm energy. The ceremony was amazing and felt magical. I sincerely hope to stay in touch with Susan and I feel she is someone I could go to for guidance in the future. Thank you Susan!

My wife and I were referred to Susan through the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York City. We looked for an Officiant to conduct our wedding who was spiritual but not religious, deep without being stuffy and also knew to laugh and not take all too seriously when it was appropriate. We found all that with Susan. She met with us several times before the ceremony giving us not only great guidance but also gave us the space to make the entire ceremony our own and mostly special to us. Thank you Susan!
