  • Working with Dianne was an incredible pleasure. We were dealing with so many factors, including the pandemic, so reorganizing our vision to fit in our own home seemed like it was going to be a challenge, but Dianne worked with us to make sure the ceremony would be just as magical as anywhere else. She was also willing to lookup different options for us since we were open to a few different approaches to the ceremony. It worked out perfectly.

  • Dianne is amazing. I found her by reading through reviews and immediately contacted her to set up a meeting. She asked us questions to learn more about us and also asked specific things we liked/didn't like in terms of wedding ceremonies so she could better serve us. Our original wedding date was Dec 2020 and we unfortunately decided to postpone due to COVID and do a small ceremony in August. She had no hesitation, immediately accommodated our new plans and was more concerned with how we were handing it rather than us changing the original arrangement. Highly recommend!!

  • Dianne was so wonderful to work with. Her process allowed us to completely personalize our wedding ceremony but with her expert guidance. We could not have been happier with the ceremony that we had. It was so special. We can’t thank Dianne enough for all of her help throughout the process! Could not have asked for a better officiant.

  • Dianne has been amazing from start to finish... and she's not even done helping us yet! My (now) husband and I had to reschedule our big wedding due to COVID-19 but we still wanted to get legally married on the original day. Dianne (who created a personalized ceremony just for us) shortened our ceremony and was willing to marry us on both days! She is extremely easy to work with, listened to our input and created a wonderful and touching ceremony tailored to us. I can't wait to do it again in November in front of all of our guests. I highly recommend Dianne and I have already recommended her to close friends.

  • Dianne was an absolute joy to work with. When our wedding changed to a backyard elopement due to COVID, Dianne ensured we still had the ceremony we dreamed of. She was a calm, kind, and reassuring presence throughout the planning process. Despite having to do all our planning virtually, Dianne took care of us every step of the way. She has a way with words and helped us strike the perfect balance between religious and non-religious elements. Whatever your ceremony vision, Dianne will help you make it even better than you envisioned!

  • Dianne is worth her weight in gold and we are so happy we made the choice to use her for our wedding ceremony! We had booked with Dianne about a year before our date and with our initial phone call we knew she was the right choice. My husband and I were one of the first couples effected by COVID and when speaking with Dianne during that very stressful time she remained calm and more than willing to work with us for our new date - with no extra deposits or rate change (I know of brides being screwed by vendors because of COVID.) My husband and I decided to marry on our anniversary with just immediate family and Dianne was more than accommodating and was able to marry us during that time. One of the things I originally liked about Dianne's services is that she created a draft of the ceremony for you and your spouse to review and approve (or redraft if necessary.) I have been to weddings were the priest says something of tangent and going into a ceremony I didn't want that same scenario... Read more

  • My husband and I could not be more thrilled with how our ceremony went the other weekend. Dianne was amazing, calm, and professional to work with throughout our entire wedding planning process - even with our change of plans due to COVID. She wrote a ceremony script that we will never forget! She made it so personalized (based on questions she emailed us beforehand and used some of our answers to create the script) and was so accommodating throughout the entire process. We highly highly recommend Dianne for anyone looking for an Officiant!

  • Dianne was the perfect person to marry us. Her professionalism and sincerity guided us throughout. Creating our ceremony, writing our vows and experiencing it all “live” was exciting, meaningful and heartfelt. Dianne’s utmost attention to detail and care meant that we could relax and focus on each other and on starting our lives together “from this day forward.”

  • Diane was an amazing officiant. I was part of the wedding party, and I knew the couple appreciated her leadership, insights, and talents. She made the wedding personal and everyone attended felt welcomed at the ceremony. I have been at weddings where the officiant doesn't connect with the audience, and that's not Diane. Diane is personal, customizes the wedding to the couple, and helps bring a community of people together to celebrate a special day. You should certainly consider working with Diane!

  • We talked with a couple officiants before finding Dianne and we knew we had found a match as soon as we started talking ! She allows you to completely customize the ceremony (prayer , no prayer , readings , rituals etc). She also sends you several drafts which you are able to edit or add suggestions on. She is so kind and easy to work and talk with ! The ceremony Dianne wrote for us was so beautiful and personable! She sent each of us a questionnaire and she even reached out to several close friends and family members to really get a sense of who we are ! We received so many compliments from guests , some said it was the best ceremony they have been to , others said they thought she was a close family friend of ours ! We truly appreciated all of the time she put in to make our ceremony so memorable and special!

  • Dianne was amazing!! She sent us multiple copies of our ceremony in the planning stages. Never meeting Dianne until rehearsal was no issue as she gave us the biggest hugs and made it seem like we have always known each other. My mom made some wishes the day of the rehearsal to Dianne and Dianne came through with them no problem! She was a god sent! Even our DJ suggested that Dianne read audible books for a living!

  • My husband and I know we chose the perfect officiant for our wedding. We know that because the day after our wedding people were still talking about how special our ceremony was, how amazing and touching Dianne Patterson’s remarks were, and how they could honestly say it was the best ceremony they had ever been to. Everyone kept saying, who did your wedding? We happily replied, From the Heart Ceremonies. From the start working with Dianne was easy. Probably the most important thing she did at the beginning was taking the time to get to know us as a couple, no doubt this information was instrumental to her as she wrote our ceremony. The process of getting to that final ceremony was very straightforward and she always clearly communicated what she needed from us. She took lead in all parts of the planning and made sure we had an accurate timeline that would get us to our big day. As part of that timeline she sent us a questionnaire that encouraged us to write about our relationship, an... Read more

  • Diane was an absolutely amazing officiant! From our very first phone call through our wedding day she was such a pleasure to work with! She really made so much effort to make sure our ceremony was exactly what my husband and I were looking for! She made sure it reflected our personalities and was personalized towards our relationship. She was so personable and we loved each moment of working with her! If you are looking for an amazing officiant, look no further!

  • Dianne was a pleasure to work with throughout the ceremony planning process. We enjoyed meeting with her when we first reached out and she was very kind and easy to get along with. We were able to edit our ceremony throughout the entire process and she made it extremely personal. We received SO many compliments at our reception about our personal ceremony and everyone appreciated Dianne’s work. She spoke eloquently and made the entire process seamless. She is a true gem and we would hire her again if we could!

  • Covid changed our wedding plans and when we decided to elope in Upstate NY, I had to find an officiant. I'm so happy I found and connected with Dianne, she was so sweet and easy to work with via email to create the script for our ceremony. She made it feel very personal and just how I envisioned. On the day of, she was dressed beautifully and was so cheerful and warm, and just perfectly complemented our ceremony. She immediately felt like a friend of ours. I am so glad we hired her and wouldn't have had it any other way!
