    The perfect touch

    We loved working with Sue. Chatting with her helped us clarify and realize exactly how we wanted to celebrate our marriage. She gave us flexibility to speak from our hearts. She traveled to us making our dream of an intimate backyard ceremony come true.
    And she kept her “cool” through the high temps and barking of our mini-goldendoodle. Thank you Rev Sue!

    Greater Buffalo Weddings's reply:

    Dear Jennifer and Matthew,
    It was such a pleasure to work with you. I have never in all the
    weddings I've performed, had anyone compose such a complete
    and original and thoughtful spiritual wedding ceremony. There is so much heart in it , and it opens the way for a truly happy marriage, by setting forth and proclaiming your intentions. I am amazed at what you created and I felt so honored to officiate your ceremony. I got a little teary a couple of times because what I was saying touched a deep part of me. Thank you for giving me this
    honor.

    Wonderful!

    Sue was such a pleasure to have at our wedding. She was extremely professional, prompt, prepared, and eloquent. Sue provided us with many options for our ceremony and made it so we could customize it exactly to what we wanted. I got so many compliments about how beautiful the ceremony was. She has her own PA system and was completely set up and ready when we got there. I could not recommend Sue more, she’s lovely to work with. Thanks Sue!

I love that you touched on several different and important aspects of officiating a wedding, so that people can get a feeling for my commitment to all aspects of being a wedding officiant. I loved working with you and Peter and I wish you all the joys that marriage can bring. Sue

    Small and beautiful ceremony!

    Reverend Sue was a wonderful choice for our wedding. We live in NYC, so she worked with us virtually to plan the ceremony, which was very helpful. She provided us with tons of ceremony options and plenty of room to personalize it. We absolutely loved the final result! She was incredibly sweet throughout the entire process, arrived plenty early to the rehearsal and the ceremony, and had no problem adapting to the small last minute changes that inevitably occurred on the big day. She was a big part of what made our small ceremony so special and memorable, not just to us, but to our guests as well. We highly recommend her for smaller ceremonies like ours, though we're sure she would do an equally wonderful job if you're looking to go big! Thank you Reverend Sue!
