    I can’t say enough good things!!

    Heidi is just amazing!! My husband and I decided to do the pre-marital counseling and we can’t recommend it more! These sessions not only allowed us to learn more about each other, but it also allowed Heidi to get to know us and us know Heidi! This made our ceremony so personal and made us so much more comfortable when we were up there with Heidi!

    We love Heidi so much and can’t thank her enough for making our ceremony so special!

    Weddings by Heidi's reply:

    Thank you, Yancey. Everything about your big day was special. My favorite part was when Christian saw you walking down the aisle towards him and his eyes got watery. Then you started weeping during your vows. So Sweet! Your mothers were also both wiping their eyes. Such a happy day. :)

    The perfect officiant!!

    Heidi is the BEST!!!!! We wish I could give her 10 stars! She was so wonderful to work with before the wedding--she met with us in person when we were in town, was responsive to emails, sent us sample readings, and worked with us a lot to make the ceremony exactly like we wanted and perfect and personalized for our personalities and love story. She was also awesome during our rehearsal--she did a great job corralling and organizing everyone (not an easy task!), she explained everything clearly, and made it run efficiently. And finally, she made our ceremony absolutely perfect! We had so many people come up to us after to tell us that it was beautiful and one of the nicest they've seen, and that is due in LARGE part to Heidi. She wrote such a beautiful ceremony, which she allowed us to edit (providing examples and such) to best fit our personalities and desires for our wedding. She also has such a great, soothing voice, was emphatic and really captured our guest's and our attention, and you could tell she was genuinely excited and happy for us and for our marriage. What more could you ask for! We highly recommend Heidi! If you hire her, you will not regret it!!!

    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.

    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!
