    Amazing Officiant!

    We couldn’t have asked for a better person then Heidi to be our officiant! She helped us create a ceremony personal to us and took the time during our pre-marital sessions to truly get to know us. We received so many compliments from guests on how wonderful our ceremony was. We were honored to have Heidi a part of our wedding!

    Heidi Gessner's reply:

    Kelsey-- Thank you so much! You and Matt were so sweet during your ceremony. I loved when he took your hands into his and kissed them to help calm your nerves - and he did it twice. :) I also thought your framed Match.com profile that Matt responded at your reception was poignant and so creative. Thanks for including me on your big day.

    Warm, prepared, and flexible!

    Heidi was SO AMAZING. The planning process was such an easy one, and although we did not know each other prior, she was so warm and welcoming it was like we knew her for years! The consultation was such a great process and I am glad it is part of the package as it was SO helpful! She took what we wanted our dream ceremony to be like and created it into a reality! I would also suggest having her for the rehearsal as it calms a lot of nerves and gives you a sense of how the ceremony will function. HIGHLY recommend Heidi! :)

    Heidi Gessner's reply:

    Thank you, Amanda! You are such a joy to be around and I loved hanging out with you and Dillon and the wedding party before your ceremony. So laid back. ;) The trellis that Dillon and his father made was so stunning and elegant. It made the space where you shared your unity candle ceremony extra special.

    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

    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!
