Wonderful presence and beautiful ceremony
Sandy worked with us to create a very unique and personalized wedding ceremony, and she had a great calming presence and sense of humor. She gave us examples of weddings that she had officiated in the past to get us started, and then she let us use those to create a custom script. She went over everything with us on the phone two times, and then met with both Connor and I individually the morning of the wedding. She even sent in our marriage license for us after she signed it. Sandy was great for our secular wedding in the woods!Sent on 09/16/2019

Sweet and Lovely Reverend!!
Reverend Sandra Tracy is such a pleasure to work with throughout the wedding process. She is so quick to respond and flexible with talking times. Talking to her was like talking to a long-time friend. She attempts to get to know you beyond the wedding which was great for putting my husband and I at ease on the wedding day. For that reason, it didn't feel like a stranger was officiating us on the wedding day since she took that time to talk to me beforehand and get to know us as a couple. On the wedding day, she was so patient with us despite the wedding starting 30 minutes late. She keeps her schedule clear for a good part of the day to ensure that she has enough time to allow for late starts and other issues if they arise. Her rates are also extremely reasonable, and she allowed my husband and I to fully customize the ceremony to be exactly what we wanted. On the wedding day, she delivered flawlessly. We highly recommend her as your wedding officiant!Sent on 06/25/2019

A wedding ceremony that captured our love story
Sandy provided the exact ceremony we wanted. She patiently guided us with professionalism, loving care, and good humor. It was perfect!Sent on 06/25/2019
Reverend Sandy Tracy is highly recommended as our premier officiate. She is delightful to work with! Many "Happily Ever Afters" have started with her professional, personalized services provided at Dancing Bear Lodge!
As a photographer, I love working with Sandy! She is fun, easy to work with and wedding professional. All too often couples get a friend to perform their ceremony. That sounds fun, but if you've not performed weddings you forget simple things like asking the congregation to stand or be seated. Or they are nervous and speak too soft or too fast. Then no one hears. Hire Sandy. She is like Goldie Locks - just right!.
We cannot say enough wonderful things about Sandra! Our coordinators have worked with her at several weddings, and each time we have been blown away by the quality of her work and her dedication to beautiful ceremonies! Regardless of what type of ceremony you want, from a simple Christian ceremony to an intricate, custom secular ceremony, she always delivers. No other officiant, however great, gives a wedding quite the same touch as Sandra, and we absolutely cannot wait to work with her again!
