We hired Amanda to officiate the ceremony of our Nov 17, 2018 wedding. From the start, Amanda was great to work with. She was responsive and answered all of my questions in a timely manner. She sent myself and my husband questionnaires to fill out, and without ever meeting us in person, was able to create a ceremony that so completely captured who we are. I read these same reviews while I was searching for an officiant, and so many couples said that after their ceremony guests had commented that it was the best ceremony they had ever seen. I can honestly say that this happened- MANY times!! Amanda's voice is calm, soothing, and perfectly captured our story with both laughter and tears. I could go on and on and on, but most importantly- you will be forever grateful for hiring Amanda to perform your ceremony!Sent on 11/30/2018

Unforgettable, personalized, us!
Upon our first conversation with Amanda it was an effortless decision. She was responsive, professional, and you can tell she just loves doing this work! It was so fun filing out the questionnaire she use to craft our ceremony. The ceremony was unforgettable and so unique for us! Thank you Amanda!!Sent on 01/13/2019

One of a kind ceremony!
We are so glad that we came across Amanda and got the opportunity to work with her. She is fantastic to work with and really made sure the ceremony was exactly what we wanted. The ceremony could not have been put together more perfectly and she really let our love story be told for all our guests to hear. Our guests raved about how amazing and beautiful the ceremony was from start to finish, and are also glad that we had sunglasses for favors so they could hide the tears! We would 100% recommend Amanda to anyone looking to get married. She is very passionate about her work and you will not be disappointed.Sent on 11/27/2018

I can't thank Amanda enough for her wonderful wedding ceremony script and telling our story in such a special way. Everyone loved how personal and sweet the ceremony was and how if fit us perfectly. From our first meeting and all of the emails leading up to the big day Amanda was quick to respond and helpful in answering all of our questions. We were having a hard time writing our own vows but Amanda came to the rescue with sharing her tips. Our ceremony was delivered eloquently and her calming voice made it feel as though it was just the two of us up there. I would highly recommend Amanda to anyone looking for a ceremony that is made especially for you and told from the heart. My only wish was to have been able to say goodbye to Amanda, give her a hug and say THANK YOU!Sent on 06/28/2018

Amanda was perfect! She was very responsive to our emails and worked with us to craft a ceremony that worked perfectly for us. We had never met Amanda before she arrived for the ceremony but our guests continually commented on, "it's so great you had someone you know do your ceremony", "she was so personal".Sent on 01/19/2018
Amanda made our experience unique, special and personal. She was well spoken and exactly what we had wished for! Not much more we could have asked for! She has packages that cater to different budgets and desires. Would recommend to anyone!

Amanda was truly fantastic. She was flexible, organized, and helpful throughout the process of writing our vows and organizing our ceremony. On the day of our wedding, she was incredible - all our guests commented on how she created a beautiful, calming, and warm atmosphere, that felt intimate and inviting. Thank you so much Amanda for making our wedding day extra perfect! We feel so lucky to have had you there.Sent on 11/27/2017

When searching for an officiant online, it can be super scary because all you have to go on is the reviews other people write - how can you be sure that you can trust them? If you are looking at Amanda Brown's reviews, you'll see that she has amazing ones and please let me assure you that each of them is spot on - she is excellent!Sent on 07/27/2017
My husband and I got married in June and we still have people telling us that ours was the best ceremony they had ever heard. We still have people asking us how long we've been friends with Amanda (and we booked her online about a year before our wedding) because our ceremony was so personal. Amanda was really flexible in working with us to make our ceremony feel like "us" and it was the perfect beginning to a really fun party and what will hopefully be a really long and loving marriage.
I can say with complete confidence that hiring Amanda Brown was the best wedding-related decision my husband and I made and if you are looking for a kind, flexible, graceful officiant who will bring humor, warmth, and personal touches to your ceremony, Amanda Brown is the person you want!!
Cassandra · Married on 11/12/2016
Amanda was the officiant for our wedding on 11/12/16, she was amazing to work with. Amanda is a genuinely kind person and you can tell that from the first time you speak with her. She wants your wedding day to be special and her process offers no stress. For the big day, all of our friends and family were moved by our ceremony. She's a beautiful storyteller of your story. We would recommend her to everyone. Thank you, Amanda, for adding such a light to our beautiful day.Sent on 12/31/2016

Amanda exceeded our highest hopes for what our ceremony could be!Sent on 10/26/2016
From the detailed survey sheets we provided to Amanda, she created a ceremony that felt like it was being officiated by a long time family friend.
The seamless blend of sentimental moments with humor kept us laughing and kept everyone's attention. This was NOT your cookie-cutter dry ceremony, this was 100% reflective of who we are and it's something we'll remember for the rest of our lives.
Amanda did so well with the ceremony, and was very prompt with filing the paperwork so that I was able to change my name shortly after the wedding.
We couldn't have done it without Amanda's expertise, we're so happy with how the ceremony turned out!
Melissa · Married on 09/09/2016
Amanda was so great I was so happy with our ceremony. She writes a personal ceremony just for you which is what I loved. I actually met with other jps previously I was being very picky as the ceremony was the most important part of my wedding day. She performed the ceremony flawlessly and many people commented on how great they felt she was. If you are looking for something very personal and special with a heartfelt delivery, use Amanda brown!Sent on 09/30/2016

I don't even know where to begin describing how much Amanda Brown's ceremony script for us MADE MY WHOLE WEDDING. So many people were crying - it was personalized to us, had some laughs, and made you cry. All I cared about for my wedding was a super personal and memorable ceremony -- everything besides the ceremony is just really a fun party -- so the ceremony meant so much to me. We used a friend as an officiant but hired Amanda to write our script. We just had a phone conference (never met in person) and yet she nailed it on the head so perfectly. Having the most amazing and perfect wedding ceremony ever is like being given a gift you can never get forget. I really have no idea how to thank Amanda enough because she gave us a memory for a lifetime. I would hire her a thousand times over again - I highly recommend - you will not be disappointed. Thank you again Amanda!Sent on 06/23/2016

Amanda is a talent and a joy. I will recommend her to anyone and everyone who asks, no matter where you are or what kind of ceremony you have in mind. Her process is respectful and easy for a busy couple, and it is extraordinary what she can do with the information you provide her.Sent on 01/01/2016
We met with Amanda once before our wedding and then each filled out a series of short open-ended questions over email. We worked with her to sketch out the order and items in the ceremony. She pointed us to number of helpful resources to give us some ideas and was encouraging and excited throughout the process. The ceremony was truly amazing. All of our family and friends remarked on the content and delivery--no one could believe she was not a lifelong friend or family member! Thanks to Amanda, our wedding ceremony was exactly what we wanted: personal, warm, funny, simple, and very us. Even if you have no idea what you want your ceremony to be, call Amanda. She will help you create the ceremony you never knew you always wanted.

Amanda really made the ceremony perfect. Through her survey she was able to work together a great ceremony just for us. Her voice and how she delivered the ceremony was beautiful. We are so happy we went with her, I would highly recommend her to anyone that was a completely personalized ceremony.Sent on 12/27/2015

Our ceremony was truly my favorite part of our whole wedding day. Amanda Brown is truly an amazing story teller and guests are still commenting on how unique of a ceremony it was and how much they loved being part of it.Sent on 11/29/2014
Amanda Brown sent both me and my fiancé separate questionnaires to fill out and then created an unique ceremony that was so personalized that after our ceremony guests asked how long we knew Amanda. Guests both laughed and cried and I am forever grateful to her that she gave us such a meaningful ceremony.
Kasey · Married on 08/29/2014
Amanda is Absolutely phenomenal!!!! She was able to tell the story of "us" in such a beautiful and unique way that was personable, funny, sweet and heartwarming, and unique beyond anything we could have imagined. Not only did she make our day so originally magical, but she is an amazing human being that is compassionate, kind, understanding, flexible, and filled with an abundance of love that permeates every interaction. I would HIGHLY recommend her to narrate ANY event!!!Sent on 08/31/2014

From the second I heard my cousins ceremony written by Amanda Brown I knew I wanted her to write my ceremony. She was so responsive and met with us right away via Skype to find out everything we wanted out of the ceremony. Amanda was so easy to work with and put together the most special, personal and heartfelt ceremony we could have ever asked for. Everyone kept complimenting how wonderful and meaningful the ceremony was. I would recommend Amanda to anyone who is looking to have a more personal touch to their ceremony and one that will be remembered forever.Sent on 12/30/2013
Tobi · Married on 10/05/2013
Where to begin! In the 48 hours that we have been married, my husband and I have had virtually all of our guests contact us to say that ours was one of the best ceremonies they\'ve ever attended. Amanda was so amazing to work with, I can\'t say enough, she was very communicative, had great suggestions and really helped us create such a personal wedding ceremony, truly something we\'ll remember for the rest of our lives. It is so easy when planning a wedding to forget that the ceremony is the most important part of the day, and, with Amanda\'s help, it is the part all our family and friends are talking about!Sent on 10/07/2013

Amanda made our ceremony so special and distinctly us! It truly was a reflection of "our love story". We had so many guest asking about her and our ceremony. Everyone was so moved and impressed by how genuine and thoughtful it was. There were plenty of tears as well as laughter, Amanda was able to make everyone feel a part of the service. I can not recommend her enough.Sent on 09/13/2013

We were told over and over that our ceremony was the best service many of our guests had ever heard. People commented that it captured their attention and they loved hearing the personal details that were intertwined through out the ceremony. Amanda is amazing and we can't recommend her enough!
Alexandra · Married on 08/10/2013
Amanda was an amazing officiant. From our first meeting with her, we knew she was going to bring something really special to our ceremony. She helped us really reflect on what was important to us and why we were getting married and incorporated that into the wedding ceremony. Many people commented on what a fantastic, personal ceremony she provided. She made a great suggestion of a "ring warming" which is when each person there has a chance to hold and silently say a prayer or blessing on the rings before passing to the next person there. I had never heard of this before and it turned out to be my favorite element of our ceremony. We went with her basic service (not the personalized ceremony writing service) but it was actually incredibly personal and unique. I can't imagine having done this with any other officiant - I highly, highly recommend Amanda!Sent on 12/31/2013
Deb · Married on 07/20/2013
We had to select our officiant from afar since we live in CA, but planned to marry in MA. From the first interaction with Amanda, I was put at ease. She has a wonderful spirit! She met my husband and I via FaceTime and we just clicked; she really "got us". She didn't disappoint us either, she was amazing. From helping us write our vows to crafting out story and ceremony. Everyone (and I really mean a full 90-100%) of our 130 guests complimented her delivery and loved the way she incorporated so many important details into our ceremony. It was truly personal -Something you would expect a close friend to deliver. I would recommend Amanda without reservation!!!Sent on 01/01/2014
Kara · Married on 06/02/2012
Amanda did a spectacular job. She made the process amazingly easy and enjoyable. My husband and I wanted a ceremony that reflected our story in a more untraditional way. Amanda made that happen perfectly. In fact, two of our most rational friends (read: non-wedding criers) actually cried at a wedding for the first time. And she brought out the laughter as much. Another couple ran over to us after the ceremony and asked how they could hire her, too. She's a consummate professional, a gifted writer and a coach through some of the common wedding ceremony pitfalls. I cannot recommend her more.Sent on 06/09/2012
Heidi · Married on 10/01/2011
Amanda was positively WONDERFUL to work with. My husband and I were a little clueless about what we wanted, and Amanda walked us through everything step-by-step. The end product was an intimate, personal, and beautiful ceremony. So many of my guests said it was the best ceremony they had ever been to. It was fun, energetic, and really showcased our personalities. I absolutely loved working with Amanda.Sent on 10/25/2011
Olga · Married on 09/24/2011
Amanda was fantastic from the very start!!! Our ceremony was personal and it was about the two of us. Our guests loved every moment of it!!! We had one guest comment on how usually they can't wait to get throught it quickly, but w ours they listened and couldn't wait to hear what else was coming!! Not your traditional style which I loved! Amanda will work w you to make your ceremony the way you want it to be!!!! She is terrific!!!Sent on 10/13/2011
