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

Thank you, Heidi!
My husband and I loved working with Heidi on our wedding ceremony. Heidi was wonderful to work with leading up to our wedding and was so understanding and flexible even when our plans changed last minute with the coronavirus. She had so much great advice on marriage for new couples that will help us in our marriage for years to come. Heidi is warm, thoughtful, and kind, and our ceremony was so beautiful and heartfelt.Sent on 06/05/2020

Do yourself a favor and book Heidi!
Hiring Heidi was the best decision we made (apart from deciding to marry one another). It honestly felt like we had known Heidi for years. She is warm, personable, and incredibly thoughtful. We opted for the premarital sessions that truly helped our relationship and better prepared us for marriage. From the moment we met Heidi, we felt comfortable with her and opening up about our relationship. My husband and I knew each other for 5 years prior to our wedding, and we swear that we learned more about one another in the months working with Heidi than we had in the last few years of our relationship. It is not easy merging two sets of upbringings and values into what is supposed to be "one," but Heidi helped us work through that process and gave us the tools necessary so that we can continually work on our relationship. Because of Heidi, my husband and I know how to communicate and love one another better. As for the wedding day, Heidi made that day everything it was and more. The ceremony was beautifully done, and made the year of planning worth every second. I mean it when I say our wedding would not have been what it was, if it was not for Heidi.Sent on 05/01/2020
Weddings by Heidi's reply:Awww, thank you for your sweet review, Heidi! It was a genuine pleasure getting to know you and Thomas and companioning with you during your engagement. Your wedding day was so beautiful and intimate and it was an honor to be with you. Love to you both! Heidi
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!
