On WeddingWire since 2023

Congratulations on your engagement! I'm Susan Craig, owner of Spiritual Bondings LLC. I'm an ordained officiant serving all of Rhode Island, Eastern Connecticut, and Massachusetts - as well as locations further afield!
I've spent most of my career as a Registered Nurse. But both jobs require many of the same skills: excellent public speaking skills, the ability to remain calm under pressure, and a genuine desire to help people. I'm passionate about weddings - big or small, it makes no difference. My goal is to help you design your perfect ceremony.

My services include a free consultation, rehearsal attendance (I don't believe in charging extra for this. I expect to be there; it's part of my job!), a handcrafted memento of your ceremony, and an unforgettable wedding day experience!

Please take a few minutes to explore some of the weddings I've performed. I love and remember every single one!

Services Offered
Elopements: I offer an Elopement package for weddings with 20 or fewer guests. The ceremony is generally 5 to 10 minutes, but with all the most important elements included - I Do's, Exchange of rings - and you will have some options for all of these. There is an additional fee if I am needed at a Rehearsal.

  • Woman-owned

Susan was a wonderful officiant from start to finish. She tailored everything in her ceremony to fit us, our venue and more. We would recommend Susan to anyone looking for a small intimate wedding like ours

Wedding of our dreams

They helped us plan the wedding both my husband and I wanted. Helped combine both of our visions and brought it to life. Still feels like a dream.

Susan Craig
Ordained Officiant, Owner

Most of my career has been spent as a Registered Nurse. Several years ago, close friends asked me to write and provide their ceremony. I have always loved weddings, and I've found this experience so fulfilling that I just couldn't stop providing them. I found I used many of the same skills as in nursing - calm under stress, excellent public speaking skills and a true interest and wish to help all kinds of people.
I'm passionate about weddings, and totally focused on helping the two of you create the ceremony that will become yours alone.
