New Year's Eve Wedding Ceremony
Heidi was wonderful to work with. We had a beautiful pandemic wedding! Highly recommend Heidi to anyone planning a wedding. She is very professional, recommends the right vows if you're not writing your own, order of ceremony, etc. Very lovely woman and she made our day more beautiful!Sent on 02/19/2021

We love heidi
My newly wedded husband and I are obsessed with Heidi. She was literally the best vendor we had!! Every single one of our guests at our microwedding commented at how amazing our officiant was. She is so kind, genuinely excited for her clients and she has the perfect tone of voice for a wedding ceremony. She is excited but calm at the same time. She helped calm our nerves before the ceremony and was amazing during the rehearsal.Sent on 09/28/2020
We met with Heidi first when we were looking for officiants and we loved her right away. We wanted to just "shop around" so we met with another one and within 2 minutes of meeting the other officiant, we knew that Heidi was the best and we needed to book her before someone else did.
We ended up having to change our date and Heidi, sadly, was booked on our date. We were so bummed. Heidi, the awesome vendor she is, made it work so that we just had an earlier ceremony time so she could fit us in. Truly so thoughtful to help make it work for us.
Book Heidi. You will not be sorry!! She is the absolute best :)
Weddings by Heidi's reply:Alana, thank your for your kind words! Honestly, it was important for me to try my absolute best to be there for you and Cam, just as we originally planned. I'm thrilled it worked out because it was an absolute joy 'marrying' you two! Game. Set. Love Match. :)

Heidi was an excellent officiant for our wedding. Due to some unforeseen circumstances, my wife and I had to get married much more quickly than we initially anticipated. Even with the time crunch, Heidi worked with us to put together a ceremony that represented us well. She was very easy to work with and a good communicator. We would enthusiastically recommend working with her if you are planning a wedding.Sent on 09/05/2020
Weddings by Heidi's reply:Thanks, Justin! What an intimate and special day your wedding was. I'm so glad I could be a part of your and Krystina's becoming a family. Who knew what an especially sacred time it would be!
Heidi is captivating and fun while she showers her couples with wisdom and love. Eloquent and versatile, I recommend Heidi as a professional officiant in the industry.
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!
