    We loved our ceremony!

    We absolutely LOVED working with Heidi. Hiring the right officiant was very important to us, and Heidi was the perfect fit. The entire process of getting our ceremony written was easy, and she was so thoughtful and considerate. We wanted our wedding ceremony to be the right balance of spiritual/religious, modern, personal, and just to overall feel like "us" —Heidi nailed it. Heidi was so professional and we really enjoyed getting to know her through our wedding planning process. We've received so many compliments on our ceremony and we'd absolutely recommend working with her!

    Our Ceremony

    Luke and I just want to extend the biggest Thank You to Heidi. Everything was perfect and it started with her. Thank you for being with us on our day ... though we started our lives together a few years ago, being in front of family and friend and having Heidi there allowed us to start our forever all over again! Heidi is amazing.

    Perfect 10!

    After 35 years together, we decided to take 13 days to throw together a micro-wedding in our front woods, with just 6 people, (including us) in attendance—oh, and 19 Ranch animals! We couldn’t have imagined a more perfect officiant than Heidi, who added such class and connection to a very casual outdoor event, on a rather drizzly day.

    Heidi truly blessed our marriage.

    She also, on the fly, helped us find a wonderful photographer and recommended a lovely musician.

    As spouses for life and family forever, we were welcomed into the wonderful warmth of wifehood by an equally warm and wonderful Rev. Heidi.

    We highly recommend her!

    Heidi was wonderful to work with. She is warm and friendly, and also very professional. We photographed an outdoor wedding with her this fall and were very impressed. The ceremony was just lovely.

  • Chad Biggs Event Planning & Design Wedding Planners

    From a planner's point of view, Heidi is a dream to work with. She's responsive, organized and easy to work with during the planning process. During the wedding weekend, she is always prompt, flexible and has made my clients feel special through her work. Her ceremonies are personal to the couple and she gives great sessions prior to the ceremony, if the couple is interested in working more closely with her. I highly recommend Heidi as your officiant!
