    The perfect fit

    Heidi was the perfect officiant for our intimate wedding ceremony. When we came across her site and read through the reviews, we knew she was who we had been looking for!

    We had one quick meeting together and from that she created the most beautiful ceremony. She tied in aspects of our history as a couple and reflections of our Christian upbringings.

    On the day of our wedding, she felt like part of the family and made everyone feel like she had known us for years. Our day would not have been as special with anyone else but Heidi marrying us.

    We cannot recommend Heidi strongly enough!!

    Megan & Adam, Thank you for your thoughtful words. I had a blast at your wedding and loved meeting all 12 of your siblings! Two fun families coming together to make one big, happy bunch. I feel so honored to have been a part of your intimate gathering. You are a beautiful couple - inside and out. xoxo

    Look No Further

    Heidi was an amazing wedding officiant and we had a great experience working with her! She was always available for an email, phone call or in person meeting. We only spoke with her a handful of times before our wedding, but it felt like we had known her forever. She took our love story and was able to talk about us as if she had known us through the whole thing. Heidi has a great speaking voice and is so kind and easy to talk to. We received so many compliments from wedding guests about Heidi and how she officiated our beautiful ceremony. If I had to choose again, I would choose Heidi in a heartbeat!

    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!
