Was SO Amazing to Work With!

Suzanne went absolutely above and beyond during the process of our wedding. Not only did she help build a script that was specific to both my (now!) Husband and I, but she was always responsive and resourceful to any and all questions I had. Furthermore, Suzanne had unfortunate news delivered the day before our ceremony and was unable to perform the day of. HOWEVER, during her own family emergency, she went out of her way to secure us an officiant who was just the sweetest THE SAME DAY! Her dedication to making the transition as smooth as possible was remarkable, she truly was dedicated to ensuring Jesse and I had a perfect wedding day in midst of her own events.

Please know that if you hire Suzanne she will make your day as beautiful and intimate as you could ever imagine. Thank you Suzanne for everything you did for us xo

Graceful, open-minded, and professional!

We are thrilled that we were able to find such a flexible, organized, and kind individual to officiate our wedding! It was important to us that we could have the flexibility to choose what our ceremony would look like. Suzanne was very open about this, and also willing and more then able to guide us through the process. We decided to incorporate a hand-fasting ritual into the ceremony and Suzanne executed it with grace. She was also great at managing the flow of the rehearsal, despite a heavy rainfall! We would highly recommend Suzanne's services. Thank you for creating magic on our special day!

Excellent Service, and Very Friendly

Suzanne was terrific. She is extremely friendly; and was very flexible to both our personal schedules which were very busy and hectic at the time, as well as our desires for our wedding ceremony. She provided several options for the ceremony presentation based on what we had talked about and offered up many other ideas that we had not thought of for consideration. She was very receptive to any and all changes we wanted to make to the ceremony to personalize it towards us. Overall, we are very happy with her services, and extremely grateful to have had her as a part of our wedding day.

Making it Personal

When we husband and I got married we knew we wanted a ceremony that was totally us! We wanted to create words that represented our feelings for each other without conforming to any set structure. The idea of following set structure that didn’t resonate with us as we vowed to be with each other for the rest of our lives seemed empty and impossible . Suzanne helped us design the perfect ceremony! She was totally open to all of our unusual suggestions and very flexible in what she defined as marriage ceremony. She was lovely to work with has a beautiful open heart and a kind energy. We highly recommend her for anyone with any type of ceramone in mind, you won’t be disappointed!

A Beautiful and Personal Ceremony

My husband and I were honored to have Suzanne as our officiant. The ceremony she designed for us was incredibly personal and sentimental, yet still light-hearted. Our guests commented on how well spoken and friendly she was to everyone throughout the event.

In addition to officiating, we also hired Suzanne for day of coordination. She was excellent at finding places to jump in and assist in keeping the day running smoothly. It was especially helpful to my husband and I, as we were keen on keeping the day relaxed and focusing on enjoying every moment with our friends and family.

Suzanne also offers a premarital program for couples and I would highly suggest it to anyone. I believe that even the most well connected partners can benefit from taking the time to improve their communication and problem solving - especially during a busy engagement!

In short, we worked with Suzanne over the course of several months and we always found her to be incredibly professional, kind, compassionate and intuitive. During the ceremony, we felt comfortable and relaxed - like we were being married by a friend.

Thank you Suzanne - we are so very glad you could be a part of our day.

Such a joy to work with

After reaching out to a few different officiants who were unavailable on our wedding date, all of them recommended Suzanne and we're glad they did. She was an absolute joy to work with. We felt completely comfortable with her the moment we met her. She made planning our ceremony easy and allowed us to taylor it the way we envisioned it and was great during the rehearsal and the wedding. We would highly recommend Suzanne to anyone looking for an officiant.

Suzanne Peters

Suzanne helped us have to perfect ceremony! We married in a quiet ceremony in our backyard, and she kept it running perfectly.

She was kind, polite, professional and gave us exactly the short and simple ceremony we requested.

I would highly recommend Suzanne!

Great officiant for your special day

Suzanne was recommended to us and I'm so glad she was. She was a thoughtful, punctual, professional, and personable officiant who made our day extra special. She made sure she knew our friends and family and even followed up afterwards with some photos she had taken of us all. Plus, she had great outlines and readings to choose from and made creating our ceremony a breeze. In the craziness of wedding planning, Suzanne was a breath of fresh air. We would recommend her a million times!
