  • Without doubt, meeting, planning and working with Hannah to plan our wedding ceremony, earlier this month, was one of the most delightful and fulfilling experiences of our lives. She planned meticulous attention to every detail imaginable, in order to make our ceremony a marvelous success, our very special day a day to remember and cherish. Hannah's loving personality, kindness, courtesies, experience and professional competence, are a delightful "mingling of the brew", which in combination, made our wedding ceremony so very special, warm, intimate, memorable and beautiful.

  • We were married on 10/15/20, and Hannah was provided to us inclusively as part our venue’s package. It could not have been a better choice from our venue. Our first facetime with Hannah got us really thinking about our vows and Hannah listened to our love story. The incredibly detailed script that Hannah provided us for our ceremony was something I went back to and referenced many times thoughtful the planning process. Fast forward to the big day, and Hannah transformed our love story into an absolutely beautifully personalized ceremony that made us as well as all our guests both smile and tear up throughout. Our ceremony went off without a flaw and we will be forever grateful to Grace Ceremonies!

    Meera, I so am delighted to read your review, and so thankful I got to be part of sharing your love story with your dearest loved ones. I'm glad working with me was helpful throughout the planning process and that it all culminated in such a beautiful event! I'm grateful I got to be part of it.

  • My wife and I couldn't have better things to say about Hannah who was our wedding officiant this past summer. Hannah guided us to craft the ceremony that we hoped for. Our ceremony was very polished thanks to Hannah and our guests remarked that it seemed like Hannah had known us forever based on the personal address that she gave about us. We highly recommend Hannah.

    Brian, I'm delighted to hear that based on your ceremony, your guests felt like I'd known you two forever. What a great compliment! I'm so thankful for your recommendation and so glad you chose me to share in such a happy day!

  • We are so glad that we chose Hannah for our wedding! Planning a wedding during a pandemic was not ideal, but Hannah made everything feel so simple. When we began the planning process, my husband (still can’t believe I get to call him that!) said that he was most excited for the reception, but as time went on he realized how much he was looking forward to the ceremony and that was all thanks to Hannah! Our ceremony remained the one sure thing throughout COVID wedding planning. Our ceremony was beyond perfect and we have received so many compliments. I cannot say enough about Hannah and all that she did for us. She is beyond amazing and we are so thankful!

    Monica, thank you so much for your review...especially during this time of COVID! I am very happy I got to be part of your journey into marriage, and that the ceremony was such a simple but special part of it. Thank you for choosing me to share your love!

  • Hannah officiated our 7/12/14 ceremony and we have nothing but positive things to say about her. We had met with a couple of other officiants before her and didn't feel much of a connection, but when we met her we both knew immediately that she was perfect for us. She is easygoing, friendly, and very thoughtful, and has a positive and flexible attitude about the whole process. We knew that we wanted to create our own service but were overwhelmed by all of the possibilities for doing so. Hannah helped us narrow down our options and ultimately aided us in creating exactly the lighthearted, personal ceremony that we hoped for. She was always easy to communicate with and quick to respond, even around the birth of her daughter (!!). And when we decided after our rehearsal that one entire element of our ceremony wasn't working for us, she had no issues taking it out last minute and making sure that the ceremony was seamless despite its removal. We loved our ceremony and had lots of positive... Read more

  • We had the best experience with Hannah officiating our September 2019 wedding. We planned our wedding long-distance and she was extremely accommodating, setting up Skype calls with us along the way. She put together a beautiful ceremony that incorporated everything we wanted and felt very natural and very "us".

    responded with the following comments.

    Gretchen, I am so glad to hear that working with me from across the country was a great experience and that you two felt the ceremony was so beautiful and personal...even without meeting in person! I am thankful you chose me to share in your very special day.

  • Working with Hannah of Grace Ceremonies was easily the best decision we made on our wedding journey. Her kindness and care are ever-present in her helpful guidance of navigating the marriage process and her expertise of synthesizing the message a couple wants to portray on their wedding day. We definitely recommend the premarital conversations as well! We had our private ceremony in Boston with just my husband and I, Hannah, and our photographer - then moved to the reception to join a small gathering of family and friends. We opted for the One of a Kind ceremony package as we wanted our intimate ceremony to truly reflect us as a couple and did it ever! Hannah did an amazing job (both my husband and I bawled tears of joy the entire time) and really made our day so special! Thank you again, Hannah!

    responded with the following comments.

    Jess, it was an honor and a pleasure to be part of helping you two navigate the marriage process, from Premarital Conversations to your amazing private ceremony to the celebration which followed. My tears were mixed with yours, for sure! I'm so glad you found me and that I got to share in your love!

  • Hannah is an incredible officiant. She was such a calming, reassuring force when COVID threw a wrench in our wedding plans, and she helped us design a beautiful and meaningful ceremony despite the absence of in-person guests, a bridal party, readers, etc. She worked with us every step of the way and provided super helpful materials as we were preparing our vows and readings. She was intentional about getting to know us so she could create a beautiful and personal ceremony for us, she then she sent us a beautiful booklet of the whole ceremony for us to keep. She made our day so special and we are so grateful to her!

  • Hannah officiated a vow renewal ceremony for my husband I in July 2020, and it was perfect. She took the time to get to know us and our story. She answered questions and assisted us with writing our own vows. We were in the midst of COVID-19 and all of the unknowns that came with it, and Hannah was able to find the right balance, allowing us to go forward while still feeling safe. She seemed to know both what we were looking for, and also what we really needed from our renewal ceremony. I cannot say enough about how absolutely perfect it was and I can’t possibly thank her enough.

    Jen, I so appreciate you taking the time to share your experience working with me...yes, including this time of COVID! It was an honor to help facilitate the renewal of your vows, and a blessing to me and everyone who shared in it! Thank you for choosing me to help celebrate your love.

  • Hannah Grace did a phenomenal job officiating our tiny wedding on 10/4/20, and she was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish! She took the time to get to know us (over Zoom!) and really listened to all of our wishes for the day. She also provided excellent advice and was extremely organized throughout the process. The ceremony turned out beautifully and was just as we hoped it would be. Amidst all of the nerves and emotions of the day, Hannah was a truly kind and calming presence, which we greatly appreciated. We have gotten so many compliments on the thoughtfulness of the ceremony and I know we couldn't have done it without Hannah! Thank you!

    Thank you so much for this review, Becca! I'm very glad you two found me to help create the thoughtful, beautiful ceremony you envisioned, and that I was also able to be a warm and calming presence on your wedding day. I really appreciate your feedback about working together over Zoom, as well. Thank you again for choosing me as your officiant!

  • Hannah took the time to get to know us prior to the ceremony, and on the day of she was an absolute trooper! Not only did she drive out into the middle of nowhere in the cold rain, but she also stood in the cold rain to conduct our ceremony. We offered her an umbrella, but she declined so that she could do what she needed to do. She tailored her readings to reflect our stories and to create something that was personal to us. We really appreciated that touch. We would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an officiant. If you are planning a non-religious ceremony, ours was non-religious. She does both. She was wonderful!!

    Thank you, Dayna, for sharing such a wonderful review! I'm very happy the ceremony felt personal and special to you two...I so much enjoyed getting to know you both and being able to weave that into your ceremony. Thank you for choosing me to be there alongside you two...even if it was in the cold rain! It was exciting, and certainly unforgettable! :)

  • Hannah is a wonderful person and an exemplary reverend. She married my mom and step-dad in 2016 and I knew as soon as my husband proposed that I wanted her to officiate our wedding. We ended up deciding on an elopement ceremony prior to a traditional wedding prior to our son being born. However, the baby had different plans and showed up almost 5 weeks early! Hannah didn’t pause to help us wed at the hospital a week before our scheduled ceremony! Not only did she perform a last minute ceremony, her sermon was written as if she had months to prepare. After our ceremony we went back to visit our son to tell him all about our ceremony. We told him that “our friend Hannah” was also there, and it’s true, I can easily call Hannah a friend. I am looking forward to having her officiate our traditional wedding ceremony in the next year!

    responded with the following comments.

    Nicole, I think it would have been special enough for me to get to be part of your wedding after officiating for your mom and step-dad. But to be there with you in the hospital after L's unanticipated early arrival...to help you two make it official and be part of solidifying your little family...well, it's hard to find words to describe how meaningful it was for me. Thank you. And yes, I can't wait for the next celebration! :)

  • We could not have asked for a more kind, dedicated and thoughtful person to officiate our wedding. We weren’t sure where to start with choosing an officiant, but after our first meeting with Hannah we knew she was the one. Hannah was there every step of the way and led us through the ceremony planning process with ease. We are so impressed with how wonderful of a listener she is that after just a few meetings, she was able to put our love story into better words than we can! Our friends & family raved that they hadn’t been to a wedding with a more personal and heartfelt officiant than Hannah before. Thank you so much Hannah for creating the perfect balance of laughs, smiles & tears for us and our guests on our biggest day!

    responded with the following comments.

    Aw, Lara...your review makes me so happy! I'm very glad you and Matt felt guided through the planning with ease and that you (and your guests!) were so happy with the ceremony. I loved sharing those laughs and those tears with you all!

  • I could write a novel on how wonderful Rev. Hannah is as a person and as an officiant, but will try to keep it brief. Hannah is an absolute joy to work with. She is considerate, perceptive, and thorough. Hannah sensitively made space to honor my deceased father while also balancing the joy of our wedding day. I was impressed with her ability to understand our relationship after only a few conversations together, and with how beautifully she reflected it in the ceremony. All of our guests were tearing up from her heartfelt words! In fact, many of my guests commented how impressed they were by Hannah, and many asked me how we found her. She was a calming presence before, during, and moments after the ceremony. We really felt fully supported, guided, and prepared for each aspect of our ceremony thanks to Hannah. In short, you will NOT regret hiring Hannah as your officiant.

    Sabina, I couldn't have asked for a lovelier review. Thank you for taking the time to share this! I'm very happy to hear that the process and experience of working together was so wonderful, and it was fun to read about your guests' impressions, too! I loved being a part of your happiness -- thank you for choosing me to share your special day.

  • If you are looking to have the most incredible wedding ceremony you could have ever dreamed of, then do not wait any longer to connect with Hannah at Grace Ceremonies. We both felt that we wanted ceremony itself to be the most important part of our wedding day (it's easy to get lost in the band, the cake, the colors, the dress, the venue and all of the planning) and wow did Hannah deliver and exceed on any of the expectations or dreams we may have had. Hannah is warm, loving, kind, patient and takes the time to get to know you as a couple, your story and what brought you two together in the first place. We both feel like we have known Hannah for a lifetime (I hope we do!) and we can't recommend her enough. She is amazing and I will tell you many of our guests came up to us with tears in their eyes telling us how moved they were -- one couple even said it gave them the inspiration to want to have a better marriage! Don't wait, you will love her just as much as we do. Hannah thank you fo... Read more

    Haley, you have me in tears! Your review really touched my heart. Everything you wrote made me so happy...to know the ceremony was even more than you had hoped it would be, that your guests were moved and inspired by it, and that the relationship we built in creating your ceremony is one we will all carry forward with us. You blessed me with your love story and your happiness together, and for that I am sincerely thankful!
