Amazing in every respect!
There are no words to fully describe how amazing our experience was with Reverend Heidi. She was available and happy to answer every random wedding question that came up, she took the to meet with me and my now husband to discuss what we wanted out of our ceremony and what we expected from her, and she reached out to remind us to enjoy the engagement period (and put wedding planning stress aside). During the ceremony when I got choked up from the emotion of the day, she put the ceremony on a 10-second pause and told me to "hug my man," which was something that I have never seen, but was perfect in the moment. Every guest said that she felt like a family member with us, and that is exactly the feeling that I will always remember from working with her. I'm so glad that we had the opportunity to work with Heidi!Sent on 05/05/2019

Rev. Heidi is THE best of the BEST
Reverend Heidi is a true angel! Her communication before the wedding was amazing. She was quick to respond, and always made me feel like she was there for me no matter how small my question or concern. On the day of stress was high right before the ceremony due to a dress mishap and she actually calmed me and made me feel like everything would be OKAY. We opted to do the Celtic hand fasting as part of our ceremony. EVERYONE made comments about how cool and different it was and how much they enjoyed it. I could not have asked for a better officiant and we are SO happy she is the one who married us! 5 million stars for Reverend Heidi! She will forever be one of my favorite parts of our entire wedding.Sent on 08/15/2019

Simply put, I really enjoy working with Heidi! I've worked with her since 2006 and have always found her to be upbeat and positive, which really helps with weddings as there can be a certain amount of pressure to make sure everything is as close to perfect as you can get. And that's where Heidi shines: she's calm and even-keeled and she listens to your thoughts, concerns, questions, and addresses them in a manner that helps you to feel calm and less stressed about not only the ceremony, but the whole wedding planning process. Just one call to her and you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. She's one of the best!
Heidi from Love Story Vows is an exceptional person, colleague, and professional! I have known Heidi for over 20 years! And it wasn't difficult to choose my wedding officiant for myself and my husband. Heidi was our first choice! And what an amazing ceremony it was! She helped us incorporate our kids, make it unique, and certainly brought laughter and tears to everyone! She helped me stay calm during the planning process. She stayed in touch daily. And she even stayed with us all night to celebrate! Thank you Heidi....so so much!
I have worked with many officiants throughout my time as an event coordinator. Heidi with Love Story Vows has been my favorite. She makes it a priority to cater to the couples every need. She is attentive, kind and professional. You can see how passionate she is about what she does from the first conversation. I would highly recommend Heidi to anyone looking for her services. She and her husband are both very involved in this industry and definitely know what they are doing.
