Reverend Heidi Rocked!
My husband and I are not church going people, rather we are spiritual. We wanted to have an officiant that could also speak to our quirky and fun sides. Reverend Heidi provided us with a completely customized ceremony with a little help from our “love story homework questions”. I would chose Reverend Heidi over and over again. So many family & friends have commented on how unique and fun our ceremony was. If you want something unique and personal, Reverend Heidi with Love Story Vows is what you want.Sent on 11/08/2019
Love Story Vows's reply:Thank you so much!!! Your ceremony was such an absolute blast! You two are definitely quirky and fun but also now two of my favorite people! I'm always a text away if you need me or just want to hang out! Heidi

Rev. Heidi married us 1/24/2020 at Galway Downs in Temecula, CA. She was great to work with during the entire wedding planning experience, the day of, and even after the wedding. We chose to add Celtic ribbon hand-fasting during our ceremony and it was so cool! So many of our guests loved this addition to the normal ceremony.Sent on 02/10/2020
Love Story Vows's reply:Thank you so much! I loved working with both of you and your wedding was gorgeous! I'm always here for both of you as Auntie Heidi now!

Heidi is amazing
We were so lucky to have Heidi as our reverend. Prior to the day of the wedding, she made an effort to reach out to us on multiple occasions. She didn't just reach out to prepare for the ceremony, she would also just check in to see how we were doing and to make sure we were keeping the romance alive. You can truly tell how passionate she is about her work. Our special day would not have been the same without her and she will forever be a part of our lives. We received so many compliments from our guests about how amazing she was. Thank you so much, Heidi. We love you.Sent on 02/28/2020

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.
