    I'm getting emotional just writing this email, Nancy was truly unbelievable. It has been a week since the wedding and EVERY day I'm getting comments from guest how amazing the ceremony was to witness. SO personal, really tied the guest into our story and our wedding. Nancy's voice is so calming, and really engaging. Nancy was such a pleasure to work with, I'm not the strongest writer, especially when it come to wedding vows, and Nancy was right there to help!
    I really can't say enough, planning a wedding has so many moving parts, do yourself a favor and choose Nancy, and worry about the other vendors!
    Truly amazing ceremony, wouldn't have changed a thing!

    Nancy was great! She gave us a list of questions to answer individually and from those answers she constructed a really beautiful ceremony with a family tribute, telling our love story, and a selection of vows to choose from. She also helped us organize a wine and letters box during the ceremony. Everything went smoothly and she even put in the effort to correctly pronounce all the names in Chinese.

    Nancy was a fantastic wedding officiant! I can't recommend her enough. She really puts in a lot of effort to create an event that combined our individual tastes and incorporated the tone & feel that we wanted in a wedding service. Throughout the process she made sure that the service created reflected our personal beliefs, without making us feel pressured to in any way. She seamlessly incorporated personalized elements into the service (i.e. a moment of silence for those who couldn't attend & a flower giving ceremony) in a manner that was elegantly explained and flowed well. Her background in theater is evident through her meticulous organization, preparation for the event, and ability to adapt to any situation. To top it all off, Nancy has a lovely sweet speaking voice and her choice of intonation/delivery brought a whole other level of warmth to the ceremony. Overall, I highly recommend Nancy for anyone looking for a wedding officiant.

    Nancy did such an incredible job with our wedding ceremony - we can't possibly say enough positive things about it. It was so incredibly personal and we had a blast working with her.

    Nancy did a wonderful job helping us to create a ceremony that reflected who we were as a couple. We knew we wanted our ceremony to be warm, personal and just us, but we had no idea where to start. Nancy did an amazing job getting to know who we were, and putting our ideas into a structure and format that flowed beautifully and in the end was exactly what we wanted. She was incredibly receptive to all our changes/suggestions, and was easy to work with. Nancy also took the time to coordinate with other vendors to make sure everyone knew what to expect from each other, which in the end helped to create a ceremony that appeared well coordinated and went off without a hitch! We loved our ceremony and are so happy that we chose Nancy to help us create it!

    Nancy Sen was the officiant for our wedding in April 2014. We were so happy with her! She is kind, thoughtful, flexible, and really listens to what you want. She came and met with us in our home, which was a great way for us to get to know her and for her to get to know us. She worked with us over several drafts for our ceremony to help us create an experience that we wanted for ourselves and our guests. We received so many compliments from family and friends saying it was the best ceremony they had ever been to. Comments to us included "it wasn't a cookie cutter ceremony" and others thought it really captured us as a couple. Thank you Nancy for helping us create a ceremony that would start our marriage and bring our two families together as one. I would highly recommend Nancy Sen to anyone who would like to create a wedding ceremony that truly reflects the style and personalities of the couple. Nancy also was very professional and did a great job delivering the ceremony. Not only were the compliments about the content but also how great she was. Thank you Nancy!!!!

    Nancy was our Officiant last month for our wedding. The ceremony went exactly as planned and people raved about it afterwards. Our guests told us it was one of the best ceremonies and most personal ceremonies they had attended. It really set a great tone for the night.

    Having a personalized ceremony was very important to us. Nancy was able to weave a wonderful ceremony that incorporated our personal anecdotes, readings and religious symbolisms. In addition, she wrote our "love story" which gave people a better understanding of us as a couple. Our ceremony had the perfect mixture of lightheartedness and seriousness.

    Nancy met with us whenever we wanted to so we felt comfortable and would respond to all of our e-mails timely. She took our feedback very well and incorporated it into the ceremony. Initially, we had started working with another celebrant due to the recommendation of a family member. Once she backed out, Nancy filled in perfectly and put us at ease. Don't waste your time talking to anybody else, go with Nancy from the start!

    Nancy was very helpful in crafting and officiating our customized wedding ceremony. We were always very comfortable working with her. She provided an excellent first draft, and worked with us through multiple iterations to get it perfect. She was more than willing to incorporate our atypical ideas, including a live chemistry demonstration in the middle. She clearly went out of her way to do background research on various topics we mentioned in our initial questionnaires, to offer creative suggestions on how to incorporate them into the ceremony. On the wedding day, she was excellent and professional in her delivery, and everyone loved the ceremony.

    We loved Nancy! Our ceremony was more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. We live far from most of our family and friends, so few of them knew both of us, or us as a couple. We felt that having a more personalized ceremony would help our guests get to know the two of us as individuals, as well as the two of us as a couple. Nancy crafted the perfect ceremony that accomplished this and so much more.

    The comment I heard the most about the entire wedding was how amazing the ceremony was. So many people said it was the most personal and perfect ceremony they had ever been a part of. One friend said he was hanging on every word and another that they smiled more through it than they had during their own ceremony.

    Nancy is extremely warm and open, making her very easy to work with. She incorporated everything we wanted perfectly. It was crucial to her that everything was exactly as we wished, including a couple of small changes we made the night before the wedding. Since we had to travel out of state to our wedding site we only had two very small windows to meet up with Nancy and she went out of her way to make the meetings happen.

    If we could give her a higher "quality of service" rating we would!

    We are SO glad we chose Nancy to be our officiant!! After a disappointing and stressful experience with another officiant, we contacted Nancy somewhat last minute, and she couldn't have made the process any easier for us. Instead of having to travel to Boston, she came to our home to meet with us. This was perfect! It was comfortable for us, and it was a great chance for her to get to know us by seeing the little home we made together. Nancy was so open and respectful to any and all ideas that we had for our wedding . . . she truly strives to create your dream ceremony. And it was! I couldn't have asked for a better memory of our wedding day. The ceremony was amazing . . . it was unique, and totally 100% all about us. At the reception, I had several guests ask how long we had been friends with Nancy. When we told them we met her a few months prior, they were in complete shock. They thought we had known her for years because of the amazing way she told our love story. Our wedding was a couple of months ago, and we have gotten (and are still getting) so many complements from guests about Nancy and the ceremony. They thought it was the best ceremony they have ever been to, and one of the only ones that will stick out in their minds forever! Meet with Nancy, and don't think twice about having her perform your ceremony . . . you will end up having an amazing memory that will last a lifetime =)

    Having Nancy, as our officiant, is one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Starting with the initial phone call- she was very prepared, organized, considerate of our wants and needs, and very flexible. The face-to-face meeting, that followed, made everything that much smoother. Nancy came to the meeting prepared with preliminary program based on our wedding details, sample programs, and sample vows to get us started. What would have taken us much longer to do ourselves, was made easier by her preparedness. She very much in communication with our wedding DJ, and wedding planner.

    The wedding day itself was awesome. We had good weather, and the ceremony was perfect. Many of our guests all had great comments about the ceremony she performed, and about her as well. They noted her delivery was perfect- she was poignant, funny, encouraging, incorporated our guests; that she was as cute as could be; and one of the better officiants they had seen at a wedding ceremony.

    We would strongly encourage contacting Nancy about performing your ceremony, I'm sure you will enjoy your as much as we enjoyed ours!

    I would highly recommend Nancy for anyone looking for an officiant! My husband and I were looking for a simple ceremony that would reflect our personalities. We had considered a justice of the peace but I was afraid it would lacking warmth and would just be like all the other ceremonies. Nancy delivered exactly what we were looking for! From the very beginning, she was very responsive to emails and phone calls. When planning a wedding, there are some many different pieces and vendors and not having to constantly follow-up or be tracking someone down is a huge help!

    Nancy also provided us with tons of ideas, suggestions, and examples for various vows and customs (sand pouring, knot tying, etc) that we could include. Since the majority of ceremonies we had recently attended were in churches, this was a huge help for us! After talking to Nancy and getting a feel for what we were interested in, she provided an easy to understand outline of our ceremony. We then completed a questionnaire that was used to put together our love story. It included how we met, our relationship, and the things we loved most about each other. This story was included in our ceremony. Since we had a lot of family attending the ceremony, they all loved hearing our love story!

    Throughout the entire process, Nancy was nothing but helpful! She provided a complete draft of our ceremony well prior to our June 2013 wedding so we could review it and make any changes (not that we had many). She had perfectly described our story in a warm, light-hearted tone. After the ceremony, our families and friends could not stop commenting on what a beautiful ceremony we had, and we could not agree more! It was absolutely perfect! I would recommend Nancy to anyone looking for the perfect wedding ceremony!

    Nancy did an amazing job at our ceremony. We could not have been more pleased with how it turned out. Nancy was in constant communication with us to ensure we were fully happy with her drafts prior to the ceremony. She was respectful and receptive of all of our requests and wishes, while taking the time to craft a personal and intimate ceremony that reflected our relationship. We could not even count the number of positive comments from our guests about how beautiful the ceremony was. We highly recommend Nancy's services!

    Nancy, we wanted to thank you for marrying us on Saturday! You did a fantastic job and we are so happy with not only what you wrote for us, but how well spoken and articulate you were during the ceremony itself. Throughout the night all of our guests were raving about how unique, positive, unconventional, and full of love our ceremony was. The best compliment we received was that it was truly a reflection of Alix and I, which was exactly what we were looking for. We will absolutely be recommending you to anyone we know who's planning a wedding. Thanks again!

    Nancy did an incredible job overall. My husband and I had a general idea of what we wanted our ceremony to be like and Nancy surpassed any goals or dreams about what we had wanted on our day. I have never gone to a wedding where people talked about the ceremony at great lengths of time but our guests are still talking about it! While Corey and I were walking around and greeting our guests, multiple people told us that it was 'the best ceremony they've ever been to'. It was so personalized and fit our values so much. Nancy was able to include all the details about how we met and fell in love and also include the traditional vows that we wanted as well.

    Nancy herself was so accommodating and always responded to my emails or calls right away and was willing to drive pretty far to meet us to discuss our ceremony. She is incredibly friendly and truly cares about making your ceremony special. I would recommend Nancy to anyone and I have a feeling she'll be getting some business from any of our friends and family members who make plans to tie the knot soon!

    Thank you again so much Nancy for giving Corey and me our dream wedding. It was a pleasure working with you!

    Nancy was absolutely amazing! She worked with us basically line by line to make every detail of our ceremony meaningful. She makes sure she knows all the little details about your relationship to include in the ceremony. Her wedding questionnaire was a great way for her to really learn our love story. She makes the whole process fun for both the bride and groom. I found the questionnaire to create a beautiful bonding time time between my fiancee and myself when things were really stressful with wedding planning. It brought us back to the whole reason we were getting married. She also has great advice about length of ceremony as well as new and modern customs that you may never have even known existed. Nancy is very flexible in her meeting times as well. We are both physicians with very busy schedules, but Nancy was able to meet with me whenever I requested. She was also easy to reach by phone and email. She goes through several drafts of a ceremony with you until it is perfect and in so doing, makes the experience all the more special. Nancy was also willing to be present during our Ketubah ceremony, which was very dear to us.
    She also makes sure you have a nicely printed copy of the ceremony to have as a keepsake.
    Also, she completely takes care of the marriage license and reminds you of all these little details! She also made the rehearsal a breeze by encouraging me to make decisions in advance about the order of things and all those small ceremony details.
    To sum up, Nancy does a beautiful job at making your special day about your union as a couple. She goes above and beyond to make sure the day is special, worry free, and exactly as you envision it. She is immensely professional and I would definitely encourage all to have her be a part of your special day!

    Nancy officiated our wedding in August of 2012. She did a fantastic job! She was communicative, organized and professional, and she was also laid-back enough that she put us at ease during the entire process. We received several comments from guests about what a great job she did. I would absolutely recommend Nancy to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding... she was awesome!

    Having Nancy perform our wedding ceremony was the best decision we made in planning our wedding. Immediately after our first meeting to discuss her services, my fiance and I knew she was the right choice. During the planning process, she was so easy to communicate with and very responsive. Everyone at our wedding loved how personal the ceremony was and Nancy did a great job conveying our story. I highly recommend Nancy to all future brides, you will not be disappointed!

    We were referred to Nancy after the officiant we had selected got sick and handed off all of her weddings to other officiants. So despite not picking Nancy, we ended up LOVING everything she did for us. She spent a long time chatting with us, getting to know us, and working on crafting our ceremony. I had so many people come up to me after our wedding and say it was the best wedding ceremony they had ever attended. That was all because of Nancy. I highly recommend her.

    Nancy is a wonderful wedding officiant! We had an originial officiant who had to back out with only a few months to go, and that made us nervous. Our old officiant turned us over to Nancy Browning, and when we met her, we were so glad she did! Nancy is so warm, caring, and funny, and we were so happy to have her as a part of her day. It was so nice of her to take us on last minute, and we were lucky to have her. Nancy joined our families for our rehearsal dinner, and we all felt like she was a party of our family! Nancy creates a beautiful and unique ceremony, and tells a love story. We had so many guests come up to us to tell us what a different and beautiful ceremony we had, and that they wished they had done something like that themselves. They are still calling us to tell us that, and it is 11 days later!!! I highly recommend Nancy to anyone. She is a wonderful person and a wonderful officiant!

    Nancy did a wonderful job with our ceremony. Many people came up to us and said what a special, memorable and personal ceremony it was. We felt she put in the effort to get to know us and was able to use her talent with words to capture how we felt about each other and our families. She has a pleasant speaking voice that is able to be heard and kept the ceremony to the perfect amount of time.

    Nancy was truly amazing. I was having trouble writing my vows and she took what I had and made them into something I couldnt have even dreamt of writing myself. All of my wedding guests kept coming up to me throughout the receptions saying that "that oficiant was so amazing". She truly captured all the love and happiness we were hoping our ceremony would be!! thank you.

    Nancy, Andrew and I are so appreciative of you and the amazing ceremony you helped us with. Everything was so beautiful and so perfect and all night our family and friends were coming up to us saying how wonderful the ceremony was and asking how we knew you! One thing we wanted to be sure of was that our ceremony was reflective of our relationship and our love. We wanted everyone to feel the love we have for each other and know how important it was for them to be there with us, supporting and loving us. That's exactly the message our ceremony sent to our family and friends. We are very lucky to have had you marry us. We had the time of our lives and loved working with you the past few months. Also, thank you for being so patient after the ceremony for the signing of the marriage license. I know it took some time to round everyone up and we appreciate you happily waiting for us. We couldn't have asked for a more meaningful, beautiful wedding ceremony!
