When my husband and I began planning our wedding, we knew that we wanted to have an officiant that would be personable, and who would listen to what WE wanted our ceremony to be. Since we were not marrying in a church, we decided to marry at our reception hall, and therefore had to find a non-denominational minister to perform the ceremony. After many internet searches, we found Rev. Angela Heil. My husband and I had gone to a few other meetings before her, and just didn't feel that "click" with them at all. However, when we walked into Rev. Heil's home for our meeting, and sat down with her, there was just an instant chemistry and it was inevitable that we would book her services! From the moment we booked, nearly a year and a half in advance, we were treated like our wedding was her number 1 priority, and that she cared. She sent us countless readings and information on ceremonies, and from there, I was able to work together with my husband and we created a ceremony that we absolutely loved. She gave us the right tools to start, and it was so easy to develop the right wording to express how much we love each other! Rev. Heil never pressured us to do things in a "certain kind of way," and she let us know on countless occasions that this was OUR ceremony and we had free reign over it. Our wedding day went by so fast, but I will always remember our ceremony. It was the most important part of the day, and I am very glad that we chose Rev. Heil to share that with us. Many family members complimented us on the ceremony afterwards, and said that they enjoyed that we added personal touches to it, such as our Latin American "arras" tradition or the rose ceremony--presenting roses to our mothers. These made a difference to us, and to those who watched us marry. I highly recommend Rev. Heil to anyone who is looking for an officiant who is caring and lets the couple be themselves! She truly was one of my favorite vendors on the day of my wedding. Melissa
