  • Hiring an officiant is so daunting, it’s such a huge part of your Wedding day. Sarah made us comfortable to share our feelings and specifications for our Wedding ceremony. Sarah was so helpful and fun to talk to. Justine performed our ceremony and she was so sweet, professional, and kind to us on the day of our Wedding. We even had to move our ceremony inside and she managed to ease a bit of my anxiety. I loved working with both of them and will definitely recommend them in the future!

  • Rev. Sarah Gutmann was the most perfect officiant we could have wished for! She was sensitive, fun, easy to communicate with, caring and very professional. She met personally with us and asked us about our courtship, current life and future dreams as a couple. She then wrote the most touching love story that had us and all our guests both in laughter and tears. The ceremony was simply magical. We highly recommend Sarah as a fantastic officiant!

  • Reverend Sarah Gutmann is fantastic! We are still receiving compliments on our personalized ceremony and what a wonderful job Sarah did. During our ceremony, it began to rain and we can not thank her enough for the way she handled the wet situation. She didn’t skip a beat as the rain came down and continued the ceremony, which made for a fun and memorable day that we’ll never forget. We highly recommend Sarah as an officiant!

  • We just had Sarah perform our wedding ceremony, and we agree that she is truly phenomenal. If you're looking for someone to officiate your wedding, there is no better choice than Sarah. My husband and I were residing in different states during our engagement, and Sarah took the time to arrange a video chat with us, understanding our circumstances and still wanting to offer the same opportunities she would if we were able to meet in person. From the start, she listened to our desires and knew exactly what we were looking for in an officiant. She wrote a personalized story for the two of us, and our guests were able to laugh and cry at different points through the ceremony. Sarah is charismatic, professional, sweet and super kind. We were so happy to have worked with her, and can't say enough about how fantastic she was. Thank you, Sarah!

  • Sarah was absolutely amazing. We had our first chat over FaceTime and by the end of the conversation my wife and I instantly felt life we had a connection with her. Sarah is so funny, genuinely cares about making sure your Day is exactly as you want it and was always great about getting back to us. We received so many compliments at our wedding about how fantastic Sarah was. If I had to have my wedding all over again I’d instantly choose Sarah. You are in good hands!

  • During our wedding planning, my now husband and I knew we wanted two things out of our ceremony: 1. Not boring, 2. (and most importantly) It needed to feel like "us". We didn't want a generic ceremony that could have been written about any couple. We needed someone who could convey our story in a sincere and beautiful way. And Sarah was absolutely that person. Since we live on the west coast, we skype interviewed our officiants to make sure we had someone who we clicked with. And what was supposed to be a 30-60 min interview turned into a 2+ hour conversation of laughter and emotions. She was just amazing from the start. While I am a very outgoing person and getting my thoughts and feelings is very easy, she was even able to work incredibly well with my introverted husband. She made us feel completely at ease, like a friend we've known for years. She then took everything we talked about and turned it into something we could share with our loved ones. The first time I read through our c... Read more

  • Our entire wedding was a dream, but our ceremony was what made our day so special. My husband and I cried when we read our Love Story for the first time. Sarah was incredible to work with from the beginning, our Facetime chat was seriously fun! She was able to capture so much from that 1.5 hour convo. Our guests laughed, cried, but most of all, loved how personal the ceremony was. After we walked down the aisle, I looked at my husband and said "that was so much fun!" I read reviews like crazy before booking Sarah, and they were all true!! She also had us covered when we lost our copy of the marriage license needed for our honeymoon. I would recommend Sarah to anyone looking for an officiant, she truly made our ceremony one we will never forget!

  • PERFECT! We had a perfect day for a wedding on the beach, my Bride to be looked perfectly beautiful and Sarah created the most perfect ceremony! I had spoken to two other officiants before speaking with Sarah, immediately I knew Sarah would be our choice for our very special day because of her professionalism and her enthusiasm. Sarah then met with us in person and spend a lot of time hearing our story and getting to know us both while sharing some of her wedding adventures with us. Sarah took our story and our thoughts and turned them into a beautiful wedding ceremony! When grown men are still telling you weeks after the wedding that the party was great but the ceremony was really special, you know Sarah was perfect!

  • Sarah was a fantastic officiant – we had a nondenominational wedding and were looking for someone extremely personable and caring to make our ceremony truly special – Sarah was the perfect person for that job. We booked Sarah about a year prior to our wedding and in our first “meeting”, Sarah facetimed us and asked us all the hard questions. At the time, it felt like a therapy session, but looking back, this allowed her to get to know us on a deeper, personal level. We appreciated this as this made the ceremony more unique and personable rather than just another, cliché ceremony. All of our guests ranted and raved about her, saying it was one of the best, if not the best, ceremonies they’ve witnessed. We were nervous about writing our own vows, but she provided comfort and feedback to each of us on how we should approach our vows and after we had drafted what we wanted to say, she provided feedback and suggestions along the way. She comes loaded with a bunch of suggestions a... Read more

  • Sarah was amazing to work with. She took the time early on to meet with us for a few hours to talk about our story (how we met, what we love about eachother, etc) as well as our vision for the ceremony. She had a lot of great options. Following this meeting, she made it very easy for us to put together our ceremony and was always very responsive via email or text. In the end, the ceremony turned out beautiful...it was exactly what Brian and I had envisioned. We also had the ceremony videotaped for an additional $50. The only thing we would have liked would have been for the camera to have seen both of our faces (mostly my back and profile and my husbands front), but unfortunately there wasn't a lot of space as it was a backyard wedding. The voice quality though was great and we could hear the entire ceremony perfectly. I highly recommend Sarah Gutmann for officiating your wedding! :)
