    Beth was absolutely amazing. When we first met my husband and I both instantly liked her and felt we could be completely open and honest. She makes you feel so comfortable. Neither of us are religious so she was able to provide a perfect ceremony for us without any religion in it. Yes, there is no denying that she was a little pricier than we ever thought we would pay but we do not have a single regret about it and I would absolutely do it over again. She made the ceremony so personal to us she even made my friend cry (who never cries) because she was able to really bring all our memories to life. She gave us the perfect mix of funny, romantic, cheesy (in a good way), and so honest. If you're unsure where to turn, absolutely at least sit down with Beth. She will be with you every step of the way to make your ceremony perfect.

    Beth created the perfect ceremony for my husband and I. Being raised in families of completely different faiths (Unitarian and Catholic), we had our work cut out for ourselves. Beth assured us that she would work tirelessly at creating a ceremony that was perfect for Michael and I while ensuring that both of our families would feel comfortable and included. After the ceremony, every guest who came up to us said that our ceremony was beautiful. We even had one guest say that he usually zones out during the middle part of the ceremony, but he paid attention to our whole ceremony because it was engaging and interesting. One thing I really love about Beth is each ceremony she creates is unique to the couple she is creating it for. She uses her expertise but doesn't impart any specific believes she has or try to sway you in any certain way. She just guides you into creating a ceremony that is 100% you. Michael and I had a great time working with Beth. She kept us on schedule and was very responsive. She kept in contact with our friends and family who were doing readings in our ceremony and made sure they were ready and comfortable. I couldn't be more pleased about how the ceremony turned out. It is a moment we will remember our whole lives and I'm just so glad we found Beth.

    Beth created the most special ceremony ever! Guests still talk about how entertaining, unique, and touching it was. Friends have just asked for her info to refer :)

    Beth Palubinsky, Modern Clergy and Celebrant's reply:

    Allison, thanks for the review and the referral. I remember your wedding so well - gorgeous setting, gorgeous you, your wonderful family. Send some news about you and Chris. Did you finish the work on the house? Still working hard at work, I’m sure. Again, thanks for the review. All the best,
    Beth

    Our ceremony was perfect. My husband and I were looking for a non-religious, but intimate and moving ceremony and I was SO overwhelmed by everything I found online to write it myself. Then we were referred to Beth and while she was more expensive than what we budgeted, which to be fair was barely anything, she was absolutely worth the price. She had such wonderful ideas, she did research into things we discussed to create the best ceremony that really fit our unique backgrounds and the final product felt just perfect for us. She seamlessly tied everything together and our ceremony was perfect. We got so many compliments from guests all night and even still about her amazing ceremony. I highly recommend her!

    Liia and Cliff, it's hard to believe your wonderful wedding, at that gorgeous farmstead, was so many months ago! It means a lot to know how pleased you were and still are, that what I was able to give you had such great value to you, and that the ceremony we made together touched you and your guests so deeply. I still remember your father's amazing trumpet voluntary that started us off. What a great day! With affection, Beth

    Beth gave us an amazing ceremony tailored just to us. We got endless compliments on how beautiful and special the ceremony was, our friends were impressed with how we made it fit to our personalities, and my parents were happy that, while not traditional, it was still structured and held meaning. I highly recommend Beth if you are looking for something more personal and fitted to your relationship, rather than a stock ceremony anyone could perform. Beth guided us through writing our own vows, and while there was a small hiccup the day of in which the wrong draft of my vows was printed, we managed to fix it and make it work out. I can't imagine a better wedding ceremony for us, thanks Beth!

    Beth wrote a custom ceremony that was tailored to us. We filled out questionnaires to provide background information on us, our relationship, and our thoughts on the ceremony and she took the information to craft a draft for us to review. She was receptive to the feedback and finalized a script that we both approved before the day of. Overall she was very responsive and provided suggestions for the wedding along the way, and delivered a great ceremony that we got many compliments on.
