  • We chose Puja as our officiant because we felt an instant connection with her. She is so lovely to work with and offered wonderful advice. She made our day even more special than we could have dreamed and we always felt like we had her undivided attention while going through the process of building our wedding ceremony. We would recommend her to anyone looking for an authentic, memorable, love-filled event.

  • Puja was a sincere pleasure to work with as my spouse and I began to plan our wedding. Before our first meeting we had a really nice conversation with her on the phone where she asked us lots of questions and implored us to think about things that were important to us - as a couple - so that our ceremony would be well personalized. The meeting was a continuation of that exploration about us. There were a number of follow up calls where we further planned every detail of our ceremony with her. She really left no stone unturned as she seemed to want just what we wanted, which was a highly personalized and self styled ceremony. The wedding turned out to be beautifully just right and we were very happy. Puja is excellent, in all regards.

  • Puja was wonderfully helpful. We worked through a guided questionnaire that helped her get to know us, but also to focus us on what was important in our relationship that we would want to emphasize in our ceremony/marriage. She met with us and provided many examples of templates for different parts of the ceremony- some more elaborate and some more simple. We were able to find the tone we wanted to strike within the ceremony and she helped guide and tie the whole thing together so that it was meaningful and cohesive. She guided us through a practice of the ceremony so that we were prepared for the day of. Overall is was a wonderfully meaning ceremony to us, and we were so pleased to share our special day with Puja.

  • Puja is AMAZING! She is kind, direct, patient and very easy to communicate with. Her spiritual presence and positive energy was instantly felt. Our ceremony was absolute perfection. It was the most beautiful day of our lives. Everyone who attended continues to talk about how unique and special our ceremony was, and that they have never been to a wedding like ours. She helped us to create a very meaningful and intimate ceremony that reflected exactly who we are, and what we believe, and that was most important to us. Puja worked with us over months via email, Skype and in person meetings. Her guidance throughout the process was beyond anything we both expected. We are so very grateful to her and what she helped to create for us. Puja is wonderful, professional and genuinely caring. We couldn't have picked a better person to be our wedding officiant. We highly recommend her services.

  • We absolutely loved Puja! She is a very kind and thoughtful woman who really helped us put together a beautiful and personal ceremony. Over two preliminary meetings we sat together to put the ceremony together. Puja was always patient and helpful in forming our ceremony. She has a very beautiful energy and we feel blessed to have had her as our officiant!

  • We spent a lot of time searching for the right person to lead our ceremony. When we first met Puja we knew she was the match we were looking for. She is a wonderful and timely communicator. The process she asks you to go through in order to create your unique ceremony is engaging and allows you to connect with each other in a new way. We wanted a ceremony that had sacred and secular elements representing the beliefs of both ourselves and our families. With her guidance, insight and resources we ended up with a ceremony that reflected us. After the ceremony many of our guests said that her presence and direction of the ceremony made them feel connected with us in the moment. We were blessed to have her with us that day and throughout the process. We highly recommend her!

  • The ceremony was beautiful. Our daughter and her husband worked with Puja to design a spiritual ceremony which reflected both of them. Puja was a calming presence at the ceremony, conducting it with meaning and sentiment. We recommend her highlyt.

  • Puja was absolutely perfect. We knew the moment we met her that we wanted her to be our officiant. She is spiritual, insightful and kind. She brought us closer together and allowed us to think about our commitment toward one another and why we wanted to take this next step into scared act of marriage. The ceremony was beautiful. Puja brings harmony to the ceremony regardless of any denomination. Our guest left feeling inspired by what she said and how it was unique and suited our beliefs. Forever in our hearts the magic of that day will carry on.

  • Puja made the most important part of our wedding day, the ceremony, absolutely beautiful! Weeks, if not months, of correspondence and planning together via email, skype, and a personal meeting, to make sure our ceremony contained everything we wanted. Puja is just lovely - very professional, yet relaxed, and her guidance throughout the planning process was a source of comfort and reassurance during an otherwise whirlwind time in our lives. She provided us with sample passages from precious ceremonies that she performed, featuring many traditions spanning the world. My husband and i were able to use these as a template to create a ceremony reflecting our sentiments and values, and Puja guided us through the process. I know in my heart that I had the perfect ceremony to express my love to my husband, and in fact, many guests at our wedding commented on how beautiful, unique, and heartfelt our ceremony was. Puja will make sure your ceremony is a beautifully crafted reflection o... Read more

  • We found Puja through our venue, the Highlands Country Club, where she married us this past April. We first met with her a few months before the wedding and loved her instantly. She has a very kind and calming presence and we felt very comfortable with her. We wanted a non-religious but spiritual ceremony and Puja walked us through a number of sample ceremonies and traditions we could incorporate into ours. The end result was very special and we were so happy to have Puja there to take us through the entire process. Thank you Puja!
