    Heartfelt Ceremony

    Sara was the officiant at my husband and I's wedding this past October and I cannot adequately express just how great she was. She was an incredible listener and made the most beautiful ceremony for us and our guests. She was professional, timely, and extremely kind and I would recommend her to anyone! Thank you for everything Sara!

    Ceremonies from the Heart's reply:

    Dear Amanda,
    I apologize for not responding to your testimonial much sooner. I received your lovely wedding ceremony response about me back in 12/2022 and I want you to know that I was so very grateful for your kind and thoughtful words! Thank you so very much Amanda!!
    As I mentioned to you previously, your wedding was exquisitely beautiful!! And, you and Matt were truly such a beautiful bride and bridegroom! It was a joy and an honor for me to be your wedding officiant!
    Many thanks to you and Matt for choosing me!
    May your lives together be long and healthy and filled with love.

    Meaningful and beautiful

    Sara helped us make our day so special and meaningful. She was easy to communicate with and gave us plenty of help with the planning. She is super kind and truly understood how to help make our day so special.

    Ceremonies from the Heart's reply:

    Emily,
    I want to thank you so very much for taking the time to write such a lovely review about me on Wedding Wire! I also want you and Michael to know that I loved being a part of your exquisite wedding.
    Many thanks also for inviting me to join you and your families and friends for your rehearsal dinner. I so very much enjoyed meeting everyone and especially your mother who I had a wonderful time chatting with.
    And, what a glorious wedding day you had…the perfect autumn day with you and Michael surrounded by your special gathering of family and friends in the beautiful historic Chapel of Restoration in Cold Spring!
    My best wishes are with you and Michael. May your lives together as husband and wife be a great and glorious journey!
    Kindest regards, blessings, and best wishes,
    Reverend Sara
