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.

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.Sent on 21/08/2019

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.Sent on 04/07/2019

Suzanne helped us have to perfect ceremony! We married in a quiet ceremony in our backyard, and she kept it running perfectly.Sent on 27/08/2018
She was kind, polite, professional and gave us exactly the short and simple ceremony we requested.
I would highly recommend Suzanne!

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!Sent on 28/08/2018

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!Sent on 27/07/2018

Thank you Suzanne, you are the BEST!
Suzanne of Life Deserves Ceremonies is amazing. She's caring, thoughtful, organized and genuine. She "goes with the flow" enough not to stress you out but is organized such that you feel confident working with her. Aside from being personable and sweet, what was such an incredible help from Suzanne was the extra services she offers beyond officiating. For us, she acted as a day-of coordinator. Because of the fact that we were not allowed to load into our venue before we were scheduled to take pictures, it made it impossible for us to take and set up our decorations. This is where Suzanne saved our butts! When we met with her before the wedding, we gave her all our decorations and she brought them to the venue when they opened AND started setting up all the decorations for us until we could load in after pictures and pick up where she left off. Her incredible eye for detail even caught a mistake on our welcome poster - which she even took the initiative and was caring enough to fix before we got there. Additionally, she offers sample ceremonies couples can use to start creating their own, which was a big help (we recommend putting a line at the end of your ceremony directing your guests to the next activity so they know what to do and aren't walking around all confused; i.e. we invite you to join us for cocktail hour on the patio where refreshments and bites will be served before dinner...or something like that). Suzanne goes the extra mile for couples because she genuinely cares; which is exactly the kind of person we wanted to marry us. We chose her for her education and background in family counseling and her work in the community but quickly realized after working with Suzanne that she's more than the sum of her accreditations. The value and good energy that Suzanne brings is exactly what we were looking for in an officiant. We can't recommend her enough.Sent on 14/07/2018

It was very easy and stress free from the moment we first spoke to Suzanne Peters, she answered our email's quickly and meet with us at our convenience. The wedding ceremony went very well, it flowed nicely and was well organized with Suzanne. Thank you for making our private wedding ceremony exactly how we envisioned it.Sent on 04/10/2017
