    She's Amazing!!!

    A remarkable energy that will leave a lasting impression. My FH and I didn't even need to search around, she's hired. Rev. O is funny, relatable, honest and straight to the point. We don't have a church home, but she makes a feel that we still belong. We will be using her for all our life's milestones.

    Thank you Rev. Orsella!!!

    When you work with Reverend Orsella, she will tell you right away that her clients are more than just clients, that they're family. While that may sound cliché, after working with her, we can assure you that it is not. We genuinely looked forward to all of our premarital sessions with Rev. O and were sad when they were over. We first booked with Rev. O in June 2019 for our September 2020 wedding, but we unfortunately had to postpone our original wedding date due to COVID-19. Rev. O was so flexible, kind, and patient with rescheduling that it took a lot of anxiety out of our planning. Because we were a COVID postponement, we went a long time between our final premarital counseling session and our actual wedding day. That didn't matter at all. Speaking to Rev. O, even after the long break, was natural, easy, and fun. It was like we'd spoken every day.

    To say that she did an incredible ceremony would be an understatement. She really listened to us during our sessions, incorporating our language and personal stories into our ceremony in ways that felt natural and organic to the entire audience. She blended the right amount of scripture and secular language, satisfying both religious and non-religious attendees, and perfectly capturing our relationship.

    After the ceremony, multiple friends and family members of all backgrounds and beliefs approached us to tell us how moving Rev. O's words were. Many members of our family approached her directly to inquire about her services, with some even reaching out for their own events. It would be difficult to imagine our wedding without Rev. O, and it simply would not have been the same without her words and guidance. Thank you Rev. O!!!
