    Accepting, Flexible and Positive Energy

    Hannah was the officiant at our wedding in May 2019 and she was exceptional. From the initial meeting Hannah made us feel very comfortable. This was truly an accomplishment as all 3 of us were in different locations so it was a virtual video chat meeting. Then meeting in Hannah in person was even better. She has such a warm, welcoming energy - it was just what we were looking for. The process questionnaire and follow-on exchanges were very helpful in focusing us on what we wanted for our ceremony. Finding Hannah was a blessing. She's wonderful!

    River and Root Ceremonies's reply:

    Thank you so much, Lynn! It was wonderful working with you both, both remotely and then in person. I really enjoyed the different elements that you brought to the ceremony and the ways that you each brought so much of yourselves into the process. It was very moving for me to be a part of your elopement and I'm so happy for you both!

    Hannah creates MAGIC!

    I cannot say enough good things about Hannah! Run, don't walk, and hire this incredible human! She made our wedding ceremony one of the most magical experiences of my life. So many guests noted that it was the most beautiful ceremony they had ever been to. Every step of the way, from our original meeting to the day of the ceremony was so magical thanks to her incredible process. We knew right away after meeting you that she were for us, and we are so grateful that we found her. The final script was gorgeous, and we are still receiving compliments to this day about the ceremony. The energy was palpable during the day of the event- something that I know Hannah helped created. I wish I could give Hannah more stars than are even available for reviews here! Her professionalism, artistry, vision, and voice SHINE through her process!

    Thank you so very much for these wonderful words. I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate both you and P and your flexibility and patience with co-creating this ceremony. It truly was a collaboration between the three of us and I loved so much that both of you approached it through the lens of spiritual artistry. It was a joy and a blessing to work with you and be a part of this wonderful celebration. Mwah!
