Wonderful Wedding Officiant

Susie did a wonderful job officiating our destination wedding in Hood River, Oregon. She worked with us from afar via video and phone calls during the planning process to create a custom ceremony that would reflect our unique story and helped guide us through writing our personal vows. As the wedding approached, she provided us the draft of our ceremony and made all the changes (even little nit-picky things!) that we requested. On the day of, she beautifully guided a very heartfelt, emotional, and loving ceremony. We highly recommend working with Susie!

Susie helped our dreams come true!

Susie was the best officiant we could ever hope for. She made our imagination a reality. From start to finish, she was so kind, caring, supportive, and understanding. My husband and I are normally shy and awkward, but she made us feel so comfortable during the whole process. Her beautiful words during our ceremony brought us to tears. She really made it personalized for our relationship. She's truly amazing, and we are so grateful to have found her. We wouldn't recommend any other officiant than Susie.

When someone offers me a wedding and I'm already booked, Susie Cunningham is the Celebrant I refer them to. She is a supremely empathetic being who connects strongly with her clients and always gives them a beautiful, appropriate -- yes, truly "heartcrafted" ceremony. Susie is a star.
