I keep my Saturdays open for those seeking my fully personalized Celebrant Ceremony, and for those who are going ahead no matter what - and regardless of guest limits! 

I am a great fit for couples who prioritize the ceremony itself as one of the most important parts of their day, and are seeking to create an unforgettable experience that truly honors and celebrates this huge life transition, while at the same time wrapping them and their guests up in a big bubble of love, connection and joy!

When you hire me, you are choosing me to lead you through an experience of love. There is nothing you need to memorize or do, instead I will gently guide you through a ceremony where time stands still, helping you to feel connected, grounded and fully present for this huge moment in your life. I bring my joy, positivity and belief in the power of your love into your ceremony, and from what I hear - it's contagious! 

For non-Saturdays, I offer Elopements and Short & Sweet ceremonies.

Everyone loved her and many commented that it was the best ceremony they had ever witnessed. Given what she provides and how well she provides it, the cost was minimal to us.

  • We cannot express in words our extreme gratitude to Sue for the beautiful ceremony she created for us on our wedding day! She was extremely open to hearing our ideas and captured our personalities perfectly, taking into consideration all aspects of the ceremony. She took all our stresses away and made us feel so special... we were blown away with her delivery of our story and highly recommend her to anyone wanting a wedding ceremony based on love. I look forward to working together with Sue again in the future to plan a blessing way ceremony for my first child.

  • Sue can help you plan and execute the ceremony that you never knew existed, but may be exactly what you need at a certain time in your life. I've been to several blessingway ceremonies to mark a women's transition into motherhood (a great, and meaningful alternative to having a baby shower). I've also been to a wedding ceremony by Sue. It was fun and whimsical and personalized and organic-feeling... (not what I usually think of weddings). These kind of "get-togethers" strengthen communities and help create deep bonds, and Sue has a magical power of dissipating any awkwardness. She has found her calling as a Celebrant, so utilize her skills!

  • You were perfect for us. Short, sweet, funny and heartfelt. Thank you for being so calm and such a professional through the chaos. We appreciate you and have had so many compliments on the ceremony.

    - The Browns

  • I would recommend Sue to everyone! She takes the time to gather each of our love stories and create a beautiful story to share with everyone during the ceremony. We had many compliments on it! Perfect

  • Sue was wonderful to work with! We spoke once on Skype and then communicated via e-mail the rest of the time. On the day of the wedding, we felt at ease knowing that she was going to briefly walk us through the process beforehand and then be there to facilitate the flow and feel of our ceremony. We wanted a light-hearted, short, yet meaningful ceremony and she created exactly that. She set the tone for our evening wedding and we could not be happier with how it went!

  • Sue was such a delight to work with!! I messaged her and heard back within an hour. I told her my fiancée and I wanted to get married asap and her response was “how about tonight?” Haha! We ended up doing the ceremony a couple of days later, and everything she prepared was perfect! We wrote our own vows, did the ceremony, filled out a few forms, and it was done! I highly recommend Sue to anybody and everybody!

    - Paul Lander

  • Sue is an incredible celebrant. She made our big day perfect. Our ceremony went off with out a hitch and we loved how it was completely personalized. I could not have asked for a better ceremony. She is a true pleasure to work with. I would without a doubt recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding.

    - Angela Burden

  • Initially my partner and I did not know how to personalize our wedding so having Sue helped make our day special and accurate to our personalities. Having a celebrant was the perfect way to ensure that our wedding day was more than a legal piece of paper- it transformed our experience I'm to an intimate, fun, and unique experience that we will remember for the rest of our lives.
