    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.

    Simply Amazing!

    My husband surprised me with our wedding renewal in Portland Oregon. I was so happy to meet Susie. She made our event amazing and so easy. She was sweet and on target with everything. She made us feel comfortable and she was super nice and sweet. She made our renewal day so beautiful. They way she incorporated our love into our ceremony will never be forgotten. Highly recommended!!! David and I will be forever grateful.

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.
