  • Heather was a pleasure to work with! She really took the time to customize our ceremony by having us do "homework" throughout the year before our wedding day. The ceremony she had written for us was so unique and so US! During our rehearsal and our wedding day my husband and I both felt so at ease with Heather next to us. We almost didn't even feel as if we were in front of 160 people. We highly recommend Heather if you are looking for a more meaningful wedding ceremony!

  • My wife and I are so thrilled to have had Heather as our wedding officiant for our August 2017 wedding. We are not local to Western Mass, so we had an initial meeting via Skype, and from the very beginning we knew she was the right choice for us. We decided to go with the custom ceremony package, and I'm glad we did. We started by each filling out a customized questionnaire so that Heather could get to know each of us and what we wanted out of our wedding ceremony. She crafted a custom ceremony for us which we loved. When we met her in person for the first time at our wedding rehearsal, she was warm, friendly, and very professional. She's got backup plans for everything, just in case something were to go wrong. Our ceremony required a small table to place a flower arrangement on, and when our venue dropped the ball on bringing the table we requested, Heather had a backup table for us. We got compliments throughout the reception about how beautiful our ceremony was, and how it ... Read more

  • Heather was an absolute joy to work with and did an amazing job officiating our wedding. She has incredible skill at capturing the essence of a couple and translating it into a beautiful and personal ceremony. She was also very helpful at helping us navigate some of the rituals of our ceremony and addressing logistical issues. We were getting married from out of town so never met Heather until the day of our wedding, but by that point we felt like she knew us better than some of our guests! I greeted her with a massive hug like I would family! Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted - personal and authentic. Heather is an incredibly warm presence and numerous guests were shocked to learn we didn't know her personally. We can't recommend Heather highly enough and are so happy we found her to officiate our wedding. Our ceremony was exactly what we envisioned (minus the 90 degree heat!) and we will be forever grateful to her for making it such a special moment in our lives.

  • Heather was wonderful to work with! She officiated our wedding at the end of July 2015 and created a custom ceremony for us. She asked us many questions about our story and created the perfect ceremony. We had many opportunities to review what she had drafted – and it was absolutely beautiful and representative of us as a couple. It was a very collaborative process, and she was open to our every suggestion. She took the time to meet us in person and get to know us several months before the wedding, in short notice. We chose to not do a formal rehearsal, but the day of the wedding, she came to our venue plenty early and gave us all an overview of how the processional and ceremony would work. All of our friends and family thought she did a wonderful job. She was positive and cheery on the day of, perfectly calm and confident. She gave us pointers on details we would not have thought of, and the ceremony went wonderfully. In short: We could not recommend her more!

  • Words can't describe how excited and thrilled I am to say Heather did my wedding!!!!! She listened to me as a bride, she was their for me as a friend. She put 150% in her work. I have no complaints at all. My husband said after the wedding that he would have no changed anything about the wedding . She was prefect! He personally didn't know heather before the rehearsal like I (bride ) did. All the guest who came to the wedding loved how she did the ceremony they had no compliments . I know for me ( bride) that I felt so comfortable being up their knowing that heather was their she knows what she doing and that she listened to my wishes how I would like things to go and also she gave advice to me from other brides on how things worked. To have my husband say he wouldn't have changed anything about the whole wedding is prefect to hear and also to have him say that heather made him feel comfortable up their knowing that heather makes me happy as a person she listen to what I wanted to...

  • Heather is absolutely AMAZING! It poured on our wedding day and we got married in a mud pit, more or less, but she had our guests laughing and smiling the entire time! She personalized our vows to us so well that we had guests asking us how long we had known her for. :) She is easy to get in touch with and is just simply amazing! I watched our wedding video today and she was phenomenal!! We couldn't have asked for a nicer woman to marry us! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

  • Heather is incredible. She puts all of her heart into creating a beautiful ceremony the truly fits the couple. Her words filled my day with so much love. Heather embraced my day with so much care and thoughtfulness. Every moment on my ceremony was perfect and flawless thanks to the calm she brought to it. Heather made my inter bridal party feel at easy and directed everyone with care and kindness. I really could not have ask for a better person to marry me and my now husband. Know that if you use her that you will receive nothing but the best. Heather is a great listener and really took what i wanted and built the most beautiful and loving ceremony out of it. I was truly blessed to have her be part of this day.

  • Heather was an amazing wedding officiant for our end-of-summer wedding this past August. From the moment we met until the day of our wedding, Heather was engaging, responsive, and professional, making our time working with her enjoyable and stress-free. Together we created a custom ceremony that truly represented us as a couple. Many of our guests commented on the beauty and depth of the ceremony and how much it matched our personalities. I am glad to have had the opportunity to meet and work with Heather, and I expect that any other couple would feel just a happy with their ceremony on their special day.

  • My wife and I were lucky enough to have Heather be our Officiant. She was there every step of the way for us, from helping with our vows to asking us what she should wear so not to clash with our wedding colors. She truly did an amazing job and made our day extra special!

  • In the months leading up to our wedding, Heather was a pleasure to work with. She listened to what we wanted and executed it perfectly in her readings. She has such a warmth about her that it made the day so personal and memorable for us. She brought us such ease during nerve-wracking moments. Many of our guests commented on how they actually listened to the ceremony because it was new, sweet and inspiring. I would recommend Heather to everyone I know as she will forever be a significant part of the most wonderful day of our lives. Thank you!

  • Heather is a lovely, warm, wonderful person who immediately made us feel comfortable and who helped us create the ceremony of our dreams! She was willing to meet with us over Skype and email to plan a long distance wedding, she bought a book about wedding ceremonies that I mentioned I was inspired by, sent thoughtful notes at special times throughout the year, gave us a send-off blessing at the end of our reception... and just did so many other things to go above and beyond! Most importantly, though a process of emailing back and forth questions and answers, drafts, and revisions, she created a ceremony that fit us perfectly, was beautiful and moving and literally all I hoped and dreamed for. (The ceremony for me was by far the most important part of the day, so I cannot stress enough the wonderful job Heather did and how much it meant to me!) Several friends and family members told us our wedding was the most moving and heartfelt one they had ever attended. If you want a ceremo... Read more
