Fun and Easy Experience
Reverend Heidi was awesome! She made the whole process so simple and fun. Our wedding was at the beautiful Galway Downs in Temecula. She was always in communication with us and was there to answer any questions we had. We were beyond happy with how everything turned out! Highly recommended!Sent on 09/30/2019

Excellent and enjoyable
She did such an amazing job. We loved everything she said about us. Everything was just the right amount of silly, fun, emotional, romantic and personal. She even made sure everything was in place like our rings and bridesmaids and groomsmen had copies of everything for us and great advice. She really helped everything go smoothly and helped us with our nerves. She is amazing.Sent on 09/16/2019

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.
