looking for a story teller?
Susan is responsive, thoughtful, prompt, and kind hearted. She learned about us as a couple, each of us as individuals, and learned our love story. We had a book themed wedding and she was a wonderful support and ceremony lead on our special day. 10/10Sent on 10/13/2019
Oregon Ceremonies's reply:Loved working with you and Alex and telling your story, Emily! The Sylvia Beach Hotel was such a perfect location for your book-themed wedding.

Have Susan marry you--you'll be glad you did!
Susan at Oregon Ceremonies is very professional and has a lot of experience, but she made us feel like we were all family. She has a lot of options and suggestions for those who don't know exactly what they are looking for in a ceremony, and she is also flexible, creative and accommodating and will help you design the perfect ceremony. Susan went above and beyond in planning and even traveling for our wedding, and it wouldn't have been the same without her! We recommend her very highly and you'll be amazed at what she does for her very reasonable fee.

Oregon Ceremonies's reply:Will, I just realized I sent you a note privately but didn't reply here. It was a joy to work with you and Lillian and tell your story woven with ancestral and forest magic. I loved the way you invoked the presence of your ancestors with music from indigenous Paiwan people in Taiwan and your mother through the trumpet music recorded by her teacher and mentor.

Susan Sanford is professional, efficient, down-to-earth, kind, flexible, and reasonable.
She gave us a beautiful, unique, and personal ceremony that touched us dearly. We switched to her with 3 weeks to go until our wedding, and she rose to the challenge, providing us with more than we could have hoped for!Sent on 10/31/2019
Thank you, Susan!
Oregon Ceremonies's reply:Jessica, it was a joy to work with you and Peter. I especially loved the rings he crafted from apple wood harvested
Susan has been a delight to work with. When I am booked for a wedding I turn to her for help. She has always been responsive and helpful. Reverend Larry Edwards Awedlar Wedding Officiant service
