About

$250 Typical Price

It is said that, "One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: That word is love." Sophocles.

It is also sometimes said that one Officiant frees Brides, Grooms, and Guests alike from the dread and tedium of enduring a boring ceremony: and that Officiant is Terri Swadey!

My name is Terri Swadey and believe in Love - and if you and a special someone have found that love with each other, then I believe in your love and I believe any ceremony, whether a wedding or other commemoration, should be done your way!

I also believe that the Ceremony part of your Big Day should be as much fun for you and your guests as the Celebration which follows!

So as your Officiant, my goal is to bring the personal into the private without losing track of either aspects. Recognizing the many nuances that are often part of that dynamic, it brings me great joy to be part of your Joy, and so I would relish the chance to work with you to create a customized ceremony for you that reflects he love and commitment between you and your partner.

    Swadey's Sweet Ceremonies's reply:

    Thank you, Heather, for taking the time to write and post your review of my services. Your review made me blush with both pride and humility. It was, indeed, a TRUE HONOR to serve as your officiant and unite you and Travis in matrimony. I hope you meant what you said about being lifelong friends, because I hope to hear from you both through the years. Now go forth and continue to keep your vows and enjoy the love you share! All my best, HUGS, Terri (Swadey)

    Heartfelt and truthful

    Terri is an AMAZINGLY heartfelt officiant. She was responsive, professional, and detail oriented. She provided many sources so we could decide how our ceremony would be presented. She has templates of all backgrounds and even shares ideas from other couples that she thinks would go well with your personality. Best of all, we had such a quick but deep connection to Terri, that she really surprised us at our ceremony by speaking truthfully about how she perceived us! It was a talking point after our wedding. We had so many compliments about our ceremony and Terri's role in it. We could not have found a more perfect officiant, and now lifelong friend!
