Heidi was so fantastic and a pleasure to partner with on our wedding. She brought expert insight, and a unique perspective that we had not seen in other weddings we've attended. It was so easy to work with Heidi as she guided us through the process and brought our story to life with her abilities. We received so many compliments from our guests on the ceremony, many wanting to know if we had known Heidi for a long period of time. You can expect a great experience, and someone who genuinely cares about telling your story and making it stick for all who are listening.Sent on 09/19/2019
Heidi Yorkshire's reply:Kim and Steve got married on a hilltop in Oregon's gorgeous wine country, with family and friends attending from all over the country. They participated in writing their own ceremony, and the result was a wedding that really showed their values and dreams. I was so happy to be a part of it.

An amazing experience— the whole process was so comfortable. Heidi listened to all our needs, she makes sure your day is authentic and everything you can imagine. Her communication is superb, there wasn’t a moment of worry amongst the juggle of preparation. We’re grateful and blessed. In front of the largest audience of my life, I felt so confident having Heidi lead our day. We get compliments on our wedding every time we see friends and family!Sent on 07/02/2019
Heidi Yorkshire's reply:Tracy and Jaret are real originals. Every aspect of their ceremony was completely personalized. Their unity ritual was based around sharing kombucha -- a first for me! And they have even created a new last name to share. Tracy wore a stunning rose dress accessorized in gold. These two have a beautiful life ahead of them, and I was honored to be part of the beginning.

Heidi was such a joy to work with! If your on the fence about having a friend officiate your ceremony or hiring a professional let me tell you, all our worries went out the door the first time we met Heidi. She really knows her stuff! She helped in so many ways from handing all the paperwork to helping our bridal party with the rehearsal and coordinating with our photographer and DJ to make sure the ceremony went on without a hiccup! She really took the time to get to know who were were as people and wrote the most amazing ceremony ever! Everyone was commenting afterward about how wonderful of a ceremony it was and wanting to know how we had found her. She calmed all our nerves and truly was the perfect person to let us shine at our ceremony! Thank you so much Heidi!Sent on 09/17/2018
Heidi Yorkshire's reply:Lauren and John's wedding was at a rustic venue with loads of style. Their ceremony was the best kind -- with laughter and tears and good stories to tell and re-tell all their lives. Even their fabulous, blue-eyed Australian Shepherd was part of it. I was happy -- and honored -- to pronounce them husband and wife!
