Reverend Sara was absolutely wonderful and I am so glad that we chose her to officiate our wedding. She tailored our ceremony to what we wanted included and she walked us through the entire process from beginning to end. She clearly enjoys bringing people together in matrimony and leaves you feeling extremely blessed. I would highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for someone to officiate their ceremony.

I cannot say enough good things about Rev Henderson. Not only is she amazing and warm, but she is with you every step of the way as you plan your ceremony. My date was very special to me, as it was my grandparents' anniversary, and she assured me that even if it snowed she'd be there. True to her word, she made it even through the heavy snow that day, and it was a heartfelt, beautiful ceremony that I'll remember for the rest of my life. I highly recommend her; she will make your special day even more special.

Sara was wonderful from the beginning. She sent us all the information we could possibly need and was always available if we had any questions. The day of our ceremony she helped our nerves and went through the ceremony just as we planned. I would suggest her to a friend any day and if we had to do it again, I wouldn't of done it any other way!

Upon meeting her, we knew Reverend Sara was the one we wanted to marry us. Her gentle demeanor drew us to her immediately. Since it was "the second time around" for both my husband and I, and because of religious rules and regulations, we were unsure of exactly where we could/should exchange our vows. She actually came up with an outdoor venue right in the town we live in that we weren't aware of. With her encouragement and support, our ceremony was everything we hoped it would be. We felt like a young couple getting married for the first time. I would highly recommend Reverend Sara to anyone, but especially to couples unsure of where to begin their new life journeys together. Thank you Reverend Sara for being a part of our "happily ever after!"

We were so glad to have an opportunity to work with Reverend Sarah on our wedding ceremony. She gave us lots of ideas to prepare us for our ceremony. Her talent in writing translated our love story thoughts into beautiful speech . Her delivery during the ceremony was lively, sincere, beautiful and memorable. She is such a pleasure to work with!

Rev Sara was the perfect choice to marry Gilberto and I. She tailored the entire ceremony to resonate with who we are and our beliefs. She has a gentle, yet inviting voice. Very personable, warm, and flexible. She was able to accommodate our last minute requests and never skipped a beat. She was amazing and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to get married in NY.

Upon our first meeting, I knew almost instantly that Reverend Sara was the right person to wed my husband and I. She has a warm, friendly, maternal nature that is comforting to a stressed out bride and groom. We did not know exactly what we wanted for our ceremony, although we knew the vibe we wanted to elicit. She understood us right away and helped tailor our ceremony to reflect exactly the people that we are, the vibe we wanted, and our desire to be both spiritual, yet non-religious.

Reverend Sara is a wonderful person and has a super warm personality and I would highly recommend her to any bride or groom looking for a personal and classy ceremony. I've heard from numerous guests that they thought my ceremony was the best they've ever been to! She's truly a great human being and I am so happy we chose her to be our officiant. Thank you Rev. Sara!

Reverend Sara did a wonderful job with our ceremony. She provided many suggestions beforehand, and the service came out perfect. I would certainly recommend her to another couple looking to wed in the area.

Reverend Sara Henderson is simply the best! Sara performs all different types of wedding ceremonies and I guarantee you she can create one to fit yours and your partner's taste, values and beliefs. Sarah was approachable and really helped to guide my husband and I through the creation of the ceremony. We wanted a non-religious ceremony that would simply be about our love for one another and our relationship. Sara provided us with sample ceremonies, ideas, and readings that she thought might inspire us or that we might want as a part of our own unique wedding ceremony. She even reached out to my "other half" to help when he was struggling with his own vows. And what a BEAUTIFUL writer she is! Sara wrote our ceremony and shared it with us a few weeks before the wedding....we both cried when we read it and knew we had chosen the perfect person to marry us! We got so many compliments on our ceremony and how beautiful, short and sweet it was! She even captured our humor a it! Just what we wanted!!! Our guests found the ceremony intimate, engaging and beautiful and loved that Sara captured us and our love in our 25 minute ceremony. As a person, Sara is sweet, genuine and approachable and truly LOVES what she does. When someone loves what they do, it always shines through! We were so proud of our beautiful ceremony and Sara made that possible!

Reverend Sara was the perfect fit for Mike & I. From our first meeting, we knew she would make our wedding ceremony special, and that is what she did! Our ceremony was beautiful, she recommended a special rose ceremony for our mothers which went over great! Everyone says our ceremony was beautiful and that we could not have picked a better officiant and we agree! Wish she could have came to our rehearsal, but that is my fault for not making sure of this in advance! Would highly recommend!

When my husband and I got engaged, we knew that we did not want a traditional church wedding, but we had no idea who would officiate our wedding or how to find someone to do it. We toyed with the idea of having a friend officiate, but that seemed like it could end up being stressful. We got some recommendations from our venue and also looked at weddingwire, and were so glad to find Rev. Sara Henderson!

We interviewed a few potential officiants and each of them had many strengths. We decided to go with Rev. Sara because she possessed qualities that were very important to us – sincerity, warmth, and enthusiasm. We felt an instant connection with her and knew right away that we wanted her to officiate our wedding.

In planning our ceremony, Rev. Sara sent us a zipped file of resources – potential readings, rituals, and vows, and sample ceremonies to use as a template. She was open to our ideas and edits. She also created a “Love Story” that really captured our relationship.

Rev. Sara did an excellent job at our wedding! We were supposed to have an indoor ceremony, but it moved it outdoors at the last minute, and she totally rolled with the location change. Her sincerity, warmth and enthusiasm certainly came across to our guests. Several of them have commented that it was the most personal ceremony they have ever seen, and that they were moved to laughter and tears at different points throughout. We also appreciated Rev. Sara’s willingness to attend our rehearsal (other potential officiants gave us a flat out “No” when we asked about this, or charged an exorbitant fee) and take care of all of our paperwork.

Overall, we are so glad that Rev. Sara officiated our wedding! Highly recommended!

Reverend Sara not only did a beautiful job of officiating at our ceremony, we would not have been able to have a ceremony at all without her help. Everything was done long distance so she facilitated our getting a marriage license without having to wait. She also sent us a huge amount of information on rituals, poetry and because we were writing our own vows, she sent us wonderful suggestions for doing so. She made recommendations for other services that we needed such as a wonderful photographer, etc. and she did all of this with one or two phone calls and mostly emails. We would recommend Reverend Sara to our family and friends without hesitation. Also, the city of Kent, Connecticut was a quaint wonderful place to hold our ceremony with people who were very helpful.

Reverend Henderson was not only the officiant, but she handled all the paper work, for our wedding. We had
some ideas for the ceremony, but her suggestions and the options she provided really did make it our own.

We would highly recommend her for a wedding tailored to any couple.
