Congratulations on your engagement!

I am Rev. Sue Whitehead, Life-cycle Celebrant and Interspiritual Minister. I am dedicated to creating ceremonies that live and breathe with the words, intentions and energy of the participants.

It would be an honor for me to work with you to craft your ideal ceremony. The result will be touching, warm and entirely personal. Every word, reading and ritual will be a reflection of who you are - your spirit, your style, your story.

I would be delighted to officiate at your ceremony. Feel free to contact me with any questions or just to talk over your ceremony. I offer a no-obligation consultation as a first step in planning any ceremony. Let's see if we are a good fit.

Warmest regards,

Rev. Sue Whitehead

I work with my couples to create ceremonies that are entirely personalized. Every word is chosen because it is write for the couple.

I have a variety of readings that I will provide to the couple as suggestions. I am happy to include whatever readings the couple would prefer.

No.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes, I am happy and prefer to hold a rehearsal as long as I have advanced notice so that I can arrange my schedule.

We could not have been happier with our choice to have Sue officiate our wedding. Every step of the process was not only made easier and clearer with her as a part of it, but her unwavering support and true caring made it honestly enjoyable.

We met with Sue one-on-one several times during which she got a sense of who we were and what type of ceremony would be important to us. She offered us sample ceremonies of all different faiths and lifestyles, samples of prayers and vows, and ideas for personalized meaningful touches. She respected our ideas and values, and was ready to help us work through any doubts we had and come to formulate a ceremony that was all our own.

Sue was invaluable the day-of. Her steady presence was unfailingly calming, not only for the bride and groom but seemingly for our families as well. She performed a "ring warming ceremony," which she'd helped us plan, in which she brought our rings to each of our family members and friends as they arrived to bless individually, honoring our value on community that she'd come to know of during our time preparing with her. Then, she stood with us and delivered the words and prayers we'd chosen with complete grace and solemnity as we were married, but gave it all a sense of lightness and warmth that it felt like we had a friend up there with us.

Her unwavering support, reassurance, respect, knowledge, and above all humor, made a potentially stressful time feel not only more manageable, but fun. We are happy to count Sue as a friend now, and if we ever renew our vows, Sue will be there!

Most married couples would probably agree that the logistics of planning a wedding can be stressful. Our first decision was not the flower color or the location, it was we wanted Sue to perform the ceremony. We knew that with Sue's input and direction "our" ceremony was going to just how we imagined it. From our first consultation to the special day, Sue shared our vision and guided us through the process. Her experience and knowledge was an asset in helping combine our common vision that was built on very different spiritual and religious backgrounds. When we think about our wedding day, it's not the flowers or the band that we remember. We remember standing there with Sue expressing our love and devotion in the presence of all our loved ones. Every element of the ceremony not only reflected our deep commitment to each other but also the joining of all aspects of our lives. Sue's presence and guidance helped us turn our wedding ideals into a moment in time we will treasure forever.

When planning our wedding, Susan was incredible! She met with us several times, creating and tailoring a ceremony to fit both of who, who come from different religious backgrounds. She not only listened to what we said, but also what we weren't saying as well. She is intuitive, talented, and performed a beautiful ceremony on this perfect day. I cannot say enough good things about her. I would highly recommend her to all my friends, family, and strangers!
