  • Susan, was amazing. From the first time we spoke and reviewed the ceremony, she was always able to put us at ease and help us through any questions we had. Kevin and I have different beliefs, Susan was able to help us through with wording our ceremony to fit what we wanted to express to each other. She was able to bring all of our thoughts and feelings into words, then shared them with our guest. Though we had not met Susan in person before our ceremony, she made us feel like we have been friends for many years and spoke from her heart about us. All of guests were taken by how beautiful the ceremony was and how Susan delivered the words and meaning of the ceremony to us. Her elegant voice and heartfelt love that she expressed during the ceremony was felt by all. She was amazing and I am so happy that we were able to have Susan perform our wedding ceremony. I would recommend her to anyone who wants a relaxed, heartfelt and loving ceremony. Susan is very easy to work with and... Read more

She truly made sure every word and reading was exactly what we wanted. She was incredibly nice and easy to communicate with. She spoke clearly and delivered the ceremony well. Thank you so much, Susan!!

  • Logan and I loved working with Susan! We wanted a spiritual but not religious ceremony and she was able to take our desires and put them into a beautiful heartfelt ceremony that reflected our love and beliefs perfectly. She wants the ceremony to be exactly what you want and will even let you make changes to it the day of your wedding if you want. Her voice is very calm and soothing and she is a poet with her words. My husband's parents have passed away and she made a special effort to honor them during the ceremony and it meant so much to us! We can't say enough kind things about her and would definitely recommend her to anyone that wants a relaxing, heartfelt ceremony.

  • Susan is just wonderful. She puts great effort into her writing. The tone of her voice is angelic. I could not have asked for a more gracious officiant. We wrote the ceremony together over the phone. She was there for all my questions, even though we lived out of state. I am forever thankful to her. A remarkable woman- a must-have to complete your special day.

  • Clay and I loved working with Susan. From the beginning, she was responsive, caring, and flexible. She helped us personalize the ceremony in all ways from the words, the vows, and the location. She drove an hour so we could get married in one of our favorite places just off the parkway. It turned out beautifully. Extremely meaningful and memorable. We hope to have Susan renew our vows in the future!

    Thank you Amanda & Clay for your lovely review. It was truly my honor to officiate your ceremony. Thank you for introducing me to the magical Tea House at Sourwood Inn. I look forward to officiating your renewals.

  • We were blown away with how experienced Susan was during our initial over-the-phone conversation. Her ceremony was personal, just the right amount of spiritual, and blew our guests away. We had so many kind words from guests about how they’d never heard such a unique and couple-centered ceremony which meant the world to us. She met with us just before the wedding ceremony to go over our license and add any final changes. We appreciated her poise, professionalism, and accessibility throughout the process. We will always have a special place in our hearts for this woman—she made the day absolutely perfect!

She met with us in person, let us tailor our ceremony to our personalities, and she took care of getting everything ready on the wedding day. She is very well spoken and easy for all your guests to hear! I would highly recommend her to officiate your wedding!

  • Susan was the best officiant that we could ask for. She makes the ceremony completely unique to each couple and takes in a lot of input prior to writing everything. You could tell that she was prepared and loved what she does. She brought out all of the emotions in the ceremony from everyone that attended. My friends and family spent so much time after the wedding asking me about Susan because she made such a wonderful impression on everyone!

    Thank you Courtney & Zach for your most kind and generous review. Your words mean so very much to me. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness & love.
