  • After me baby sister passed suddenly, we needed to find an officiant to perform her funeral service and found many glowing reviews about Sheri. She lovingly took the time to get to know our sister’s background, childhood, and adult life. Sheri gave such a heartfelt eulogy at the gravesite memorial. It was beautiful and we will all use it as we grieve and heal from our loss. She crafted special memories that everyone could relate to, and included a special prayer for our Christian burial. Sheri is very caring and skilled in her officiant service, and we are thankful to have found such a blessing in her.

  • We were lucky enough to get Sheri to officiate our wedding on extremely short notice. Our original officiant was suddenly unable to perform our ceremony on 10/21/17 and Sheri came to the rescue. We met with Sheri for a few hours less than a week before our scheduled ceremony. She constructed a ceremony that made it seem like she had known my husband and I for years, not 6 days. Our guests loved how she was able to combine our chosen readings with her words and make everything flow so effortlessly. We highly recommend Sheri and Flow Ceremonies.

  • We were so lucky to find Sheri to be part of our wedding. We had procrastinated to find an officiant, and Sheri was able to put together an incredible ceremony in a short time. Even after spending just a short time getting to know us, the ceremony she developed captured our personalities and our relationship perfectly. We worked with amazing vendors for every part of our wedding, but the one we received the most compliments for was Sheri. Everyone told us it was the best ceremony they had ever seen. A few people actually thought she might be my mother because the ceremony was so personal. We cannot say enough about Sheri - we will recommend her to absolutely anyone who asks!

    It was a delight to get to know Mallory and Mike and find the tone that reflected their moment. I hope to be their celebrant for many more milestones!

  • Sheri was simply amazing. Initially we met in person and told her stories about how we met, what we liked about each other, how/why we decided on marriage etc. Then she followed up with a sheet for each of us to complete. Initially I thought "how much information could she get from these questions?" well that was before I understood how amazing she was. She then took that information and drafted our ceremony. Somehow through our onsite and questionnaire she got us entirely. She was able to understand our relationship, our past and what mattered most to us. She was able to incorporate parts of our lives in the ceremony and did it in a way that made it flow perfectly. After the ceremony concluded on our wedding day I heard compliment after compliment from family/friends at how good our ceremony was. They loved the flow and the peppering of humor in the ceremony. I had no less than 15 people tell me it was one of the best and most memorable ceremonies they have attended. In addition what ... Read more

  • Sheri was a pleasure to work with and did much more than just show up on the day. She drafted our ceremony, which we rewrote a lot of, but it was important to get the structure of it from her so we didn't have to start from scratch. I loved the "gentle homework" she made us do where we had to draft short answers to questions about each other and our history and relationship. Sheri was always responsive and professional, and she ran the rehearsal and wedding seamlessly. Honestly, I had a very hard time evaluating the ceremony itself from my perspective as a bride, but even though I felt a little deer-in-the-headlights I knew our ceremony was in good hands. Sheri is a very strong public speaker and didn't suffer the nervousness I did! Sheri also recommended all the readings we ended up using and succeeded in making our ceremony a transformative, spiritual experience, while keeping it completely secular. She never pushed an agenda on us and always listened to our ideas and requests. Thank... Read more

  • I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Sheri and the service she provided. Sheri was very friendly, detailed, and positive from our opening meeting at Starbucks to our wedding ceremony. My wife and I had very little knowledge on the process of a non-religious ceremony but Sheri made it very clear and stress free. She put in a lot of time and effort to incorporate our life story and included readings and poems that matched our culture and desires. We had many guest at our wedding compliment and praise Sheri and how special she made our day. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a friendly and professional officiant for their wedding.

  • Sheri was a great wedding officiant! Her life cycle celebrant philosophy was perfect for our non-denominational ceremony. During our multiple sessions and much email correspondence, Sheri developed this comprehensive picture of my husband and I's relationship, allowing her to create a unique ceremony personal to us. She spent time getting the details right, and afterwards she even made sure to get a neat copy of the ceremony as a keepsake.

    Andrea and Dih-Loan, it was lovely to work with you! Though you were long-distance clients, I continue to feel close to you~ Thanks for the kind words!

  • Sheri was a great investment in our wedding. When we had our first meeting at a coffee shop, Sheri opened with asking how my wife and I met. As we started to tell our story that we've told so many times, this time it felt different-- we emotionally felt comfortable with this person. The tears of love flew. Sheri's openess allowed this and she asked questions about key moments which allowed more tears. We instantly knew this was the person to officiate our wedding due to her receptiveness. After she gave a detailed summary of what she would do to create the ceremony, she gave us homework: questions about ourselves and our relationship. This was a bit nerve-wracking at first, but then fun and beautiful in the end as we shared our answers together later. Sheri was responsive and open to our theme and suggested edits of the ceremony. She provided drafts and would email them back. We edited and gave feedback and found that that she listened and we ended up getting everything we needed and w... Read more

  • Sheri married my husband and I in June 2016. She was such a pleasure to work with. She met with us and learned what we wanted our wedding to be. She also was okay with us not have answers to everything. We definitely had not thought about all the details, and she helped walk us through all of it! Sheri gave us a “homework assignment” to answer questions about our relationship and marriage. We really enjoyed doing this and sharing our responses with one another. It helped us prepare for the big day and our lives together! Sheri shared with us her drafts of the ceremony and allowed us to have as much input as we wanted. She did such a wonderful job the day of our wedding and has a wonderful calming presence, that helped ease any jitters we had. We received so many compliments about how personal our ceremony was and how great Sheri was!

  • I'm still not sure I can fully describe how wonderful Sheri was to work with. We met with her once and KNEW that she would be the perfect officiant for our wedding. Through a thoughtful series of questions and many back and forth e-mails, Sheri crafted a beautiful ceremony that represented our relationship; at times serious but punctuated with humor, filled with science and logic, and frosted with some geekdom. Many of our guests asked afterward if she was someone who we had known for a long time. I cannot imagine having anyone else officiate our wedding.

  • I could not have asked for a better officiant for our big day. From our first consultation we just clicked with Sheri and knew she'd be perfect at capturing our story. Well we were blown away with how wonderful the entire ceremony was! Her presence and professionalism were unwavering and she truly helped make our wedding day special.

  • Sheri at Flow Ceremonies officiated our wedding and did an amazing job. She worked with us to create a personal, touching ceremony that told our story and was loved by our family and friends. Sheri went through 2-3 revisions until we had the perfect ceremony for our wedding and personalities. We got so many compliments about how intimate and touching our ceremony was. Thank you Sheri!

  • Sheri was a complete joy to work with--from the first meeting we knew we did not need to look any further, she was right for us. During our first meeting she was so engaged in how we met and what kind of relationship we had and she already was helping us bounce ideas around how we could incorporate my daughter and how we wanted to add a special part of the ceremony to my husband giving my daughter a special necklace. I am a huge nut when it comes to how I wanted out story shared and the details to be just right and Sheri was so flexible with changes and we were able to come together and really fine tune how we wanted to have the ceremony flow. I had and STILL have so many compliments on how personal and meaningful our ceremony was. I am so incredibly thankful we found Sheri to help us through our special day.

  • Sheri officiated our wedding in October. She was a delight to work with; calm, funny, easy going and very nice, she really listened to what we wanted and created a beautiful ceremony for us. We went back and forth working through a series of small changes to her first draft and she happily kept tweaking until we were completely happy. From first contact through to after our day had come and gone, she was quick to respond and very helpful. She was able to do our rehearsal for us, and she just fit really well with our crowd, made us all feel at ease instantly. During the actual ceremony, she was charming and heartfelt. We continue to receive compliments on how unique, genuine and perfectly suited to the two of us the ceremony was. Credit due to Sheri Redi for her beautiful work.

  • I was so concerned about finding the right person to do our ceremony. I was then concerned about writing the ceremony. We were recommended Sheri by our photographer and she gave us nothing but the best. She wrote our whole ceremony from us based on a questionnaire form we filled out. Changes and edits were painless. Our ceremony was religious yet personal enough that it pleased all ranges of our guests and they enjoyed listening. We got numerous compliments after the wedding letting us know how much they enjoyed our ceremony and our officiant. If you're looking for someone who knows what they're doing and can give a quick but memorable ceremony, Sheri is the way to go!
