We knew from the start...Puja needed to be the one...
This was the second marriage for both of us. Every single aspect of this day had meaning...the venue (our beloved 38 acre family home), the Chapel my husband built for us to be married under (trees harvested here, locally milled raw beams from friends), our rings (Change You Can Wear) (his). Puja was The Perfect Fit. She Listened. She was so attentive, kept us on track when we were scattered and overwhelmed. She understood what we wanted and gave us the most beautiful options and ideas for our ceremony. Her calm demeanor, her guidance...was incredible. She understands people, she recognizes their hearts and what they need. Prior to meeting her (after reading reviews), and most CERTAINLY after meeting with Puja, there was never anyone else we imagined officiating our union. She is delightful and perfect and I am grateful and humbled to have had her be such an integral part of our day.Sent on 08/29/2019

Puja ensured our ceremony was unique and honest to us as a couple
I'll start by saying, working with Puja was easy and comfortable, but what made the experience truly fantastic was the outcome. As a not particularly religious couple, at the onset of our wedding planning my husband and I did not feel particularly strongly about the ceremony, but Puja's guidance and help in crafting everything from the opening prayer through to the vows, truly made it one of our favorite parts of the entire day. She worked closely with us to make sure the service was representative of us as a couple, and truly spoke to our love and future together. Not to mention, that throughout the reception and in the weeks following, I have had numerous people from friends to family to friends of family, all come up and rave about our ceremony and vows, noting how unique and honest they were. Many have also specifically complimented Puja and the calm steadiness she brought to the service.Sent on 04/24/2019

Wonderful!!! Our guests were blown away!
Reverand Puja was the talk of our wedding! She did such a beautiful job on our ceremony it blew our family and friends away. She was extremely helpful through the whole process and very accommodating of traditions we wanted included. Puja made everything very personal and we could not be more grateful. She made our wedding ceremony the moving, intimate, and powerful event we had been dreaming of. We can't thank her enough.Sent on 01/13/2019
Roots & Wings's reply:What I remember is how joyful your wedding ceremony was right from the start with the "elder flower girls" leading the way, and other "surprises"!! It was truly my pleasure to be your officiant. Thank you!
Puja is a very special person and that comes through as an officiant...she will create a very special ceremony for you as she did for us, she married Chef Mark and I in 2000 :) Puja is our top selection for an officiant here at Harvest Real Food at ElmRock Inn, she will make your ceremony as memorable for you as she did for us!
