If I could give 100 out of 5 stars, I would in a heartbeat! Susie is absolutely incredible at what she does. She went above and beyond in every way imaginable when it came to helping us create our perfect wedding ceremony. From our very first meeting, my now husband and I felt like finding Susie was meant to be. We're both extremely introverted and had a lot of anxiety surrounding the ceremony itself. I honestly don't think that we could have done it without Susie.Sent on 10/18/2017
She is such a warm, welcoming, accepting person who we felt instantly comfortable with. She was there for us any time we needed her. She reached out to us several times simply to check on how we were feeling since she knew how nervous we were. She constantly offered her help and support in aspects of the planning that were outside of the normal officiant duties.
When it came to writing the actual ceremony script, Susie's process was perfect. The way that she truly gets to know her clients results in the most personal, heartfelt script you could ask for. We only had 10 in attendance at our ceremony, but every last one of them commented on how "us" the whole thing was. She is also a terrific speaker.
I could go on and on about how wonderful Susie is, but I'll leave it at this.
We couldn't have even dreamed of a better experience from start to finish, and we're forever grateful to have met Susie.

The Best in Portland
Susie was an amazing officiant, and I could not recommend her highly enough. She customized our wedding to match exactly what my wife and I were looking for, and definitely went above and beyond what most other officiants would do. If you are looking for someone to officiate your wedding that will really sit with you, and give you the ceremony you want versus just give you a generic cookie cutter ceremony that you choose off a list, then Susie should be your first choice.Sent on 05/25/2019

Susie is everything her reviews say she is and more!
My fiancé and I live across the country and have never been to Oregon. Susie was a God send throughout our entire elopement process. She was attentive to our wants but also gave us great ideas for our ceremony. She went above and beyond the call of duty through skype meeting, recommendations for our stay in Oregon and even taking us around in Portland helping us find items. She even went with my fiancé to pick up my flowers when I was running late!Sent on 07/21/2019
She truly spent time personalizing our ceremony making it everything we could have dreamt of and more. Not only would our day not have been the same without her I don’t know we couldn’t have done it without all her help along the way!
Our elopement ceremony overlooking the beautiful Columbia River Gorge will be a day we will remember forever, and Susie was a big part of it. I highly recommend Susie not only for her kindness and attentiveness, but because she is truly passionate about what she does, and it shows. I can’t imagine any other officiant going to the lengths to make every detail special for their clients the way Susie does.
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.
For a personal, wonderful wedding ceremony, there is nobody else I could recommend as highly. Simply wonderful to work with!
