Congratulations! You are getting married. And if you are reading this web page you are probably someone who can skillfully perform your wedding ceremony. Well now you can relax. I have worked with hundreds of couple like you, for more than 20 years, creating unique and customized wedding ceremonies that are not from any book, but created just for you.

Your ceremony is about the two of you, the very personal expression of your beliefs, your traditions, your relationship, and your path together. As a unique couple, you have your own particular style, and your ceremony will resonate with your style and beliefs. My goal and intention is to be of service to you, to take your thoughts and feels and translate them into the words that will unite your lives.

Best Officiant!

From our first phone call with Susan, I knew she was the person I wanted to officiate our wedding. We were looking for an interfaith officiant who would be able to create a personalized ceremony that was a reflection of who we were as a couple and Susan delivered that and so much more. She weaved in my Jewish heritage in a subtle and modern way, exactly what I was hoping for. After the ceremony, we had many guests come up to us saying that it was the nicest, best ceremony that had ever been to. They were impressed by Susan’s way with words and how she was able to capture us as a couple so perfectly. We are so thankful we found Susan and if you are looking for an officiant who can tailor a ceremony to fit your unique wants and needs, hire her today!

We're so glad that Susan officiated our wedding!

We had a wonderful experience with Susan and would highly recommend her to officiate your wedding. Even though we found Susan not too long before our wedding, she made the effort to really get to know us as a couple, spending hours on zoom asking us thoughtful and intentional questions that made our ceremony feel really personal. We had a great time talking to her and reflecting on ourselves as a couple. She also incorporated our Jewish and Filipino rituals that we wanted to be part of the ceremony seamlessly. Susan kept us on schedule, regularly checking in to make sure we were moving along plans for the ceremony and our vows, and we appreciated the accountability that kept us on track. Susan also let us give feedback - we had some particulars around language that we wanted, and Susan was always happy to incorporate our edits and changes, which we appreciated. Susan was very kind, open-minded, progressive, and genuine, which was what we were looking for. Our ceremony felt really personal and true to us as a couple, and many of our guests commented on how wonderful the ceremony was and what a great job Susan did. We highly recommend Susan!

couldn't have been a better match

Susan became such an integral part of our wedding day and experience. She did such a beautiful job at capturing our relationship, journey and love. So many of our guests complimented the ceremony (many said it was their favorite part of the wedding), and quite literally everyone was in tears. We are so grateful to Susan and the hard work she put into planning our ceremony and genueintly getting to know my husband and I. Beyond, beyond, beyond recommended.

I recently dj'd a wedding where Susan was the Officiant/Celebrant for the Wedding Ceremony. You can tell immediately upon meeting Susan that she is a seasoned professional. Her calm demeanor makes every one around her comfortable. I have dj'd many ceremonies where the Officiant was uncomfortable using a microphone and they were either too loud or too soft. This isn't the case with Susan. Her intonation is perfect and she speaks clearly with such sincerity you almost forget that she isn't a family member!

Rev. Susan Turchin is a gem. She is truly the most thoughtful, heart-centered, creative, knowledgeable and experienced officiant I know. You will be very pleased with your ceremony as Susan makes the entire experience a delight.
