Emotionally Moving Ceremony

Sarah was amazing, truly making our wedding ceremony beautiful. She took the time to get to know us and this made the words she prepared for our ceremony heartfelt. We had so many guest tell us that they were crying through out the ceremony. She kept us on track during the wedding and used well timed levity to cover over my own confusion during the ceremony. We are so grateful for Sarah's help through out the whole process, including the help she provided in writing our vows. She was also extremely organized which made planning so easy. Sarah was a professional from start to finish and so friendly putting us at ease during our most nervous moments.

Sarah created our dream ceremony!

We are so happy that we found Sarah. Our ceremony was the most exceptional, intimate, and simply incredible event of our wedding. Every guest we spoke to for the rest of the night could not stop talking about how beautiful our ceremony was, all thanks to Sarah! She sent us a thorough questionnaire to complete, along with ample resources. We really took our time in completing the questions separately and together. Sarah took our responses and crafted the most spectacular script for our ceremony. She included beautiful poems, prayers, and readings as well. She took extra care in guiding us through the ceremony timeline, and she was very flexible with any small changes we made to the script. We would recommend Sarah again and again! I wish we could relive our ceremony everyday.

Beautifully moving ceremony with Celtic rituals

Sarah did an incredible job as officiant for our wedding! Our guests could not stop talking about how moving and beautifully written our ceremony was. Her delivery was impeccable. She was great in communication and incorporating our edits to the ceremony. We wanted to get in touch with our Celtic ancestral roots in our ceremony, and she seamlessly led our infinity knot handfasting and Quaich rituals.

It was an absolute pleasure working with her, and I highly recommend her to anyone!
