    Perfect Choice

    We're so happy that we chose Puja to officiate our ceremony! She had the perfect balance of guiding us in our decisions, offering ideas and opinions, and giving us the final say in just what we wanted in our ceremony. Our special day was perfect!

    Roots & Wings's reply:

    It was a pleasure to work with you and Mark on creating and officiating your ceremony. Thank you for asking me!

    Puja Was a Tremendous Help!

    Puja was absolutely the best officiant we could have asked for in regards to our non-traditional wedding with elements of Buddhism. We could not have had a more breath-taking wedding ceremony without her!

    Roots & Wings's reply:

    Thank You! You certainly created a breath-taking ambiance and experience for all your guests at your wedding ceremony and I was happy to support you!

    Puja made our ceremony memorable and special for us and our guests!!!

    Puja came as a recommended officiant by our venue, Red Maple Vineyard. After speaking with her during our first consult we knew we’d found the person we wanted to conduct our ceremony. My wife and I are not religious people and quite frankly didn’t know exactly what we were looking for out of our ceremony. Puja asked us very pointed questions and was able to guide us with thought starters and a tremendous wealth of resources from numerous ceremony types for us to pick and choose from. We ended up with a completely customized ceremony that truly meaningful to us and our values. We had SO many of our guest come up to us, unprompted, and say how floored they were with our officiant, how she completely made them forget about everything else and help them be fully present for the ceremony and how poignant her words were and how they resonated wo much with them. We would strongly recommend Puja to anyone looking for an officiant, especially if you’re not quite sure what you want from your ceremony and could use a little guidance.

    Roots & Wings's reply:

    Thank you so much for your glowing recommendation! I'm so glad that our connection led you and Sara to a deeper understanding of all the aspects that you wished to include in your ceremony. It is what I hope for when I work with a couple so I was happy to read your words. Thank you again.
