Theresa was exactly what we needed for our wedding. We were definitely at a loss for what to do about an officiant; PA has some odd rules and we wanted to be sure the ceremony was what we wanted without having to create it all from scratch. With the package we chose, we were able mix and match from a bunch of different templates and readings that she provided to create a ceremony we were 100% happy with. Our meetings with Theresa were straightforward and friendly, and she was always quick to respond to my emails and make us aware of her timeline. We were grateful that she came to run a rehearsal the night before, and she was friendly, clear, and direct with what everyone should do without taking too much time. She was engaging when speaking and felt very genuine, and was happy to bow out to let us enjoy the rest of our day when the ceremony was over. She has clearly done this before, and are glad we decided to just spend the money to have someone who could confidently guide us through the ceremony. We are very happy that Theresa was part of our day.Sent on 09/13/2018

Picking an officiant to marry us was something that we worried over for quite some time because we wanted to be certain that who we went with would be able to provide us a ceremony that was just as beautiful as it was simple and enlightening. We are thrilled to say that we found exactly that with Rev. Theresa. She has a beautiful collection of various ceremony readings and vows which allows you to build your very own that you as a couple can relate to. For both the rehearsal and the big day, Rev. Theresa was excellent, capturing the crowd and speaking with meaning. Our guests were so impressed with her, and we were asked how we found her (P.S., it was on Wedding Wire!) Rev. Theresa is very experienced and it especially shows when things don't go according to plan, such as it being rainy/windy which made it difficult to light candles, but she made an awkward situation turn right back around with a light-hearted joke. When I think back on the ceremony, I am filled with such joy and happiness that Rev. Theresa was there to guide us through to becoming a married couple. We HIGHLY recommend her to any couple who is looking for peace of mind when it comes to selecting a capable, gracious and welcoming wedding officiant.

We got married at the Lodge at Liberty Forge in Mechanicsburg and got Theresa's card during the planning process from them. Theresa, from the get-go, was quick to respond to emails and questions. She has been a absolute pleasure to work with! She was helpful during the entire planning process, including the rehearsal. We were able to customize the template for our ceremony so that it really spoke to us. We've heard nothing but wonderful things regarding the ceremony and how lovely Theresa was from our guests! I think what we appreciate the most is that she wasn't just reading from the page, but speaking from memory and was able make it more interesting-not only for us but for the guests. She put alot of thought into every line and verse as she spoke and that showed! We really appreciate how special the ceremony was, it really did feel like it was tailored just for us. We will never forget it!
Theresa also takes the time to review all that's involved getting your name changed as well, I feel less stressed about it for sure! I feel like she was exceptionally priced for all that she does, its a good deal- especially in the scheme of things. We are grateful to have found her and that she was a part of our special day! I highly recommend her for any kind of ceremony in which you need an officiant honestly-- wedding or not!
Reverend Theresa is a lovely woman who understands weddings inside and out. Regardless the size or tone of the wedding, her ceremonies are always a beautiful reflection of the bride and groom. We whole heartedly recommend you meet with her to discuss your perfect wedding ceremony!
Rev. Theresa is someone I hold in the most highest regard, both professionally and personally. She truly hears what her couples desire in a ceremony and creates what best conveys those wonderful feelings of love. She works with honesty, integrity and with sincere care. Theresa is one of the first officiants I refer to when my calendar is booked - always confident they are in good hands.
We, the wedding planners of Designing Memories, love working with Theresa and highly recommend her! She is dependable, professional, and very helpful. Choosing a great officiant is so important to your wedding day running smoothly so give her a call.
