Words that illuminate your thoughts and feelings.

Rituals

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.

    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.

    Susan is the best!!

    Susan was the most amazing and professional celebrant we could have ever dreamed of having. She tailored the ceremony to our unique personalities and made it feel like an eternally special moment, instead of just a countdown to cocktail hour. The amount of compliments we received on the ceremony and Susan were more than I ever could have expected, the only complaint anyone had is that we don't have a video of the ceremony because it was so good!!!

    Long story short I would strongly recommend Susan for anyone, especially to couples who may be interfaith or come from different traditions, as her ability to craft a personal and custom narrative was just tremendous.

    Susan Turchin

    Susan helped us create our perfect wedding. She took a great deal of time to get to know us and our story. She made our ceremony very personal and incorporated the different spiritual and religious elements that she knew were meaningful to my husband and myself. She went above and beyond on the day before our wedding and came to our venue to lead the bridal party in a helpful rehearsal. Many of our wedding guests commented on how beautiful and moving the ceremony was and how wonderful Susan was. She even wore a purple robe to match my purple bridesmaids. We are so grateful to Susan for making our special day everything we dreamed it would be!

    Thank you Bess. Loved working with. My only regret is that due to Covid I didn’t stay long enough to see you changed to your next fabulous dress!!!! So many blessings. Susan

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.
