Everything and more we hoped it would be !!
From the first time we met Sue we felt very confident in our choice to hire her to marry us. She was everything and more we were looking for. She spent hours getting to know us and genuinely cared about our past, present, and future. The ceremony Sue put together was amazingly heartfelt and many of our guests after the wedding commented on how wonderful our ceremony was. Sue will always have a special place in our hearts!Sent on 09/05/2019
Rev. Sue's reply:Thank you, Antonia! I LOVED getting to know you and Mike. You are an amazing couple! You touched my heart deeply. Know that I continue to be here should you ever want to talk or get a cup of coffee in Rockport. Lots of love to you and your family!

Rev Sue made our day magical!
Our wedding was on winter solstice at Peirce Farm in Topsfield. On this dark and stormy night the barn was bathed in candle light and twinkling white lights. But Rev. Sue created the true warmth in the room.Sent on 12/27/2018
From the first time we met she helped us co-create a service that was personal and authentic. She gave us the framework to show our guests and each other how much we loved each other in a beautiful way. When we made our vows you could feel the energy in the room supporting us.
Rev. Sue is a seasoned professional who absolutely knew how to work with our vision but even more importantly guided us to and through the perfect wedding ceremony.
She radiates warmth and kindness. I can’t imagine our wedding without her thoughtful presence.
setareh · Married on 08/26/2018
This is my very first time leaving an online review. However, I feel the urge to write about Sue and how AMAZING she was. From our very first meeting, I and my fiancé (now husband, haha!) connected with Sue. She was sweet and kind and at the same time VERY organized and professional.Sent on 09/09/2018
We had a Persian fusion ceremony, and Sue was very flexible and proactive towards it. She provided us with excellent suggestions how to put everything into place and she even helped us in finalizing our vows. Before the big day, Sue gave us very interesting exercises about our marriage visions which led to a very profound conversation between me and my partner. I mean the type of conversation you will not initiate by yourself but can be very useful in having a happier relationship. I may say Sue was not only our officiant but also our couple therapist. :)
On the big day, Sue went beyond our expectations by the way she performed the ceremony. She was very real and present at the moment (this part is hard to explain- no one felt this is someone providing a service- it was beyond that) in a way that the ceremony came out to be absolutely beautiful and the favorite part of the day for both of us. Many of our guests were also impressed by her. So long story short, Sue was our favorite wedding vendor and we keep joking we should marry again just to hire her again. :)
Rev. Sue's reply:Oh Setareh! And you and Ehsan provided me the opportunity to officiate my first Persian Fusion ceremony. More than that, WHO the two of you are as individuals and as a couple touched me so deeply. You are both beautiful inside and out, which was reflected in everything about your extraordinary wedding. Thank you for the kind words and I hope to welcome you to Rockport again some time. Lots of love, Sue
Daniela · Married on 08/12/2018
I would highly recommend Rev Sue to anyone looking for an outstanding, professional and personable officiant. From the beginning, Sue took many opportunities to genuinely get to know my husband and I as a couple, but also as individuals and how we got to this point in our lives. She answered all of our questions quickly and patiently, had an abundance of suggestions and options for personalizing our ceremony, and took control during our rehearsal and wedding day so we did not have to worry about a thing!Sent on 08/27/2018
Rev. Sue's reply:Thank you, Daniela! I loved getting to know you and Scott. You are such solid people and have so much to look forward to in marriage. Every blessing, Sue
Taylor · Married on 06/23/2018
Choosing an officiant for our wedding was what I thought would be the most difficult choice, but it turned out to be the easiest (and best decision) we made. My husband and I come from different religious backgrounds so it was important to us to find someone to marry us who could strike the balance and help us find common ground. The moment we talked to Rev Sue we clicked and we had no doubt that we wanted her to marry us. Rev Sue went above and beyond what we ever expected. It wasn't just about marrying us to her, it was setting us up for a successful marriage right away and for the future. She facilitated important conversations through discussions and exercises. She committed to getting to know us as individuals and couples. On our wedding day, Rev Sue made the ceremony so incredibly special - people still comment to this day how it was the most magical ceremony they've ever been to and how Rev Sue truly touched them. We feel so lucky to have found Rev Sue, she really made an imprint not only on our wedding day and the process itself, but on both of us. Thank you Rev Sue!Sent on 09/23/2018
Rev. Sue's reply:Taylor, Thank you for this gracious review! Working with you and Joe was a joy! You came to me eager to grow as a couple who already had a strong relationship. You were fully invested in working with me, which enabled me to really get to know you and write a ceremony reflective of your love. It was a gift to share this special time in your lives. Love, Rev. Sue
Cassie · Married on 04/28/2018
Rev. Sue made our ceremony one-of-a-kind! She really took the time to get to know the groom and I. This was certainly reflected in our ceremony. Rev. Sue is super pleasant, down to earth, and easy to work with. We highly recommend her!Sent on 05/14/2018
Rev. Sue's reply:Thank you, Cassie! I'm so glad I had the chance to be part of such a special time in your life. Much happiness to you and your husband. Love, Rev. Sue
Sarah · Married on 04/14/2018
We absolutely LOVED working with Sue! She was very kind, thoughtful and organized. I thought that planning the ceremony would be very stressful, but Sue made it very manageable. She took the time to get to know us and support us throughout our planning. She helped us balance a ceremony with just the right amount of religious themes. My husband, his family and my parents are christian, so it was pleasing for them, but comfortable enough for me as I don't practice an organized religion anymore. As my husband and I both don't like/get nervous being the center of attention, she helped us stay calm and as relaxed as we could be during the ceremony. She also gave us advice for what to do after the wedding, especially if we wanted to change our names. Everyone in our wedding party loved her too and made sure to mention it to us! Would definitely recommend her to any and every couple out there looking to get married!Sent on 05/01/2018
Rev. Sue's reply:Thank you for the kind words, Sarah. You and your husband are just the most thoughtful people. It was an honor and pleasure to be part of your wedding day! Lots of love, Sue
Rowan · Married on 11/04/2017
After several meetings via skype due to distance, sue crafted a meaningful and personal ceremony. The exercises she gave us helped us to create a detailed and thoughtful marriage vision document for us to use in the future. All of our guests commented on what a beautiful ceremony it was, and how much they liked sue's presence. We highly reccomend her services!Sent on 11/07/2017
Rev. Sue's reply:Thank you, Rowan! I'm grateful to have been part of your journey to marriage. It was a special joy to experience you and your wife BEAMING at each other during the ceremony. The bond you share is so strong. It was a gift to be part of this time in your lives! Love, Sue
Jennifer · Married on 10/14/2017
When my husband (then fiance!) and I were thinking about our wedding ceremony we were going back and forth on whether we should ask a friend/family member to marry us (mostly to save $) or hire an officiant. I am so very grateful we found Rev Sue. She really took time to get to know us and helped us create a personal wedding ceremony that reflected who we are as a couple. She also had many excellent suggestions, given her experience, that I don't think a friend or family member would have been able to provide.Sent on 10/31/2017
We met several times over several months - at her lovely home in Rockport, once she visited us in our home, and others over Skype. Her perspective on marriage and counseling couples is well informed and very thoughtful. Rev. Sue provided materials and suggestions for each component of the ceremony. My husband and I decided to write our own vows and she gave us great feedback along the way. Going through this process helped us further reflect on what values we wanted to serve as a foundation to start our marriage. The end result are vows that provide grounding in our relationship and inspire me each day (even before we were married!).
One goal I had throughout the entire planning process was to surround myself with great people to work with (there's enough stress with Pinterest fails, seating charts, etc.!). Rev Sue has a calming presence and ease about her. She is a kind, sincere and thoughtful person and a pleasure to work with. I am so happy we found Rev Sue!
Rev. Sue's reply:Jennifer, thank you for this thoughtful review!! I'm grateful you brought up the difference between hiring a professional officiant and having a friend or family member officiate the ceremony. I'm grateful to know that you felt the value of what I was able to offer. My goal truly is that you not only have a great ceremony, but that you start your marriage off in the strongest way possible. You and your husband were more than a delight to work with and get to know. Keep dancing! Love, Sue
Nicole · Married on 09/30/2017
Sue was an absolute dream to work with. She took the time to get to know us, and put together a thoughtful and personal ceremony that we’ll remember for years to come. Extremely organized and responsive, warm and welcoming. We participated in the pre-wedding counseling and found it to be extremely helpful. Sue truly cares about your happiness and we absolutely loved her. Look no further and book her now!!Sent on 10/03/2017
Rev. Sue's reply:Thank you so much Nicole!! I'm grateful we had a chance to really get to know each other over this last year. I know that you and your husband will truly strive to make your vows come true - to love each other more each day than the day before. You are pure gold. Lots of love, Sue
Rachel · Married on 09/29/2017
I have nothing but endorsements for Rev Sue! We decided to have her officiate our ceremony after seeing her perform a close family members a few years ago. Rev Sue was incredibly helpful and supportive throughout the ceremony planning process, and really took the time to get to know us as a couple, which made our wedding day all the more meaningful. Rev Sue really puts her heart and soul into writing a ceremony, and it most certainly shows!!Sent on 10/03/2017
Rev. Sue's reply:Thank you, Rachel. You and your husband are the most sincere, loving people. It was an honor for me to be part of your wedding day and a joy to see family members I had met previously. You and your family are gems! Love, Rev. Sue
Emilie · Married on 09/17/2017
My husband and I absolutely love Reverend Sue! She made our wedding day so special, with a personalized ceremony tailored just to us. Everything went so smoothly, and she helped us to both calm our nerves as well as uplift us with her energetic spirit. My husband and I also met with Sue several times over the summer leading up to our wedding for her premarital courses and counseling. I would highly recommend those meetings to other couples as well, as they really helped my husband and I prepare for marriage and bond with each other in what can be an otherwise stressful time. Reverend Sue is simply the best.Sent on 09/23/2017
Rev. Sue's reply:Oh Emilie! Thank you for this enthusiastic review. Your faith, warmth, and kindness touched my heart. I'm so glad I was able to be part of this chapter in your lives and I look forward to continuing our connection. Much love, Sue
Tyler · Married on 09/16/2017
Rev. Sue was absolutely incredible! Getting to know her over the months leading up to the wedding was so much fun and she delivered the perfect ceremony for us. A fun, true professional!Sent on 09/24/2017
Rev. Sue's reply:Thanks, Tyler! Getting to know you and your new wife was a joy for me, too. I also really appreciated the chance to spend time with your families at the rehearsal - it confirmed for me how wonderful and well matched the two of you are! My door is always open... Much love, Sue
kirsten · Married on 09/02/2017
I feel incredibly blessed to have found Sue to marry us. She is a truly lovely person and working with her to make a perfect ceremony was special. Sue believes that the ceremony should be a reflection of the couple. She wants to include your family and anything important that you feel should be part of the big day.Sent on 10/11/2017
She met with us and really got to know us. We discussed that I wanted everyone to feel the love during our ceremony. She listened intently as my fiancé and I described what was important.
She gave us thoughtful exercises to help us write our own vows. Our vows turned out beautifully and I will cherish them forever.
She is a complete professional and knows how to run ceremony and how to make sure everyone knows their part. I would hire her a million times over. She gave us an unforgettable ceremony and I am thankful!
Rev. Sue's reply:Kirsten, I so enjoyed getting to know you and Greg. Your care for each other and your patients is deeply inspiring. I hope you will come visit me in Rockport! Love, Sue
C · Married on 08/12/2017
My husband and I had an incredible experience working with Reverend Sue. Having her as an officiant made our wedding planning experience and our ceremony better than anything I could have imagined. We wanted to find an officiant who would really spend time getting to know us, who would help us get to know each other better, and who would help us write vows and a ceremony that were really meaningful to us as a couple. Reverend Sue did all of this and more. In my experience, the wedding planning process can become so consumed by the details of decorations, flowers, caterers, music, etc. Our conversations with Reverend Sue were a wonderful reminder of why we were getting married in the first place. She made our wedding ceremony truly magical and so meaningful. In the midst of a chaotic wedding day, I felt so happy and grounded having Reverend Sue by our side. She provided a great perspective on the entire experience and set us up to be well prepared in our first year of marriage. After all of the adrenaline from wedding planning and getting married settled down, I felt so happy, content, confident, and strong in my relationship with my husband. My husband and I feel so fortunate to have had Reverend Sue as an officiant. She will be a close mentor and friend to us for the rest of our lives!Sent on 08/22/2017
Rev. Sue's reply:Dear C & C, Thank you for this review. From our first conversation, I knew the two of you were special! You have your priorities in the best place and your love and care for each other and everyone in your lives is clear to see. Your celebration was a culmination of who you are and who you will be as a married couple. I count myself among those blessed to know you!! Lots of love, Sue
Lisa · Married on 08/05/2017
There are no words for how grateful we are to have met Rev Sue. My (now) wife stumbled upon her information online and we reached out not knowing how much of an impact she would have on our lives. We were planning our wedding long distance so our initial interaction with Rev Sue was via Skype. We could immediately tell she was warm and loving and accepting - exactly what we wanted in a Reverend. We had 2 pre-marital counseling sessions with her, both of which were helpful in learning how each of us viewed spirituality. When it came time to plan the wedding, she could not have been more helpful, insightful, or organized. Although we had planned everything, the actual wedding ceremony blew us away. It was a very customized wedding ceremony and Rev Sue impressed both the attendees and us. We received countless comments from guests about how great Rev Sue was. Great is an understatement. We thank her, from the bottom of our hearts, for being a part of our wedding and our lives. If and when babies come, there is no doubt that Rev Sue will be incorporated.Sent on 08/30/2017

Rev. Sue's reply:Aww!! Thank you Lisa and Lauren. To say that getting to know the two of you and being part of your wedding day was a gift would be an understatement. Your connection to one another, your families, and friends was inspiring. I loved being part of your journey to marriage and celebrating the big day! Lots of love, Sue
glenn · Married on 07/26/2017
What a wonderful and exciting wedding ceremony we had with Rev Sue aboard the schooner "Adventure" on 7/26/17. The ceremony she delivered was so appropriate, mentioning our love of the ocean, lighthouses and sailing. Even the ad-libs were timely and apt to the occasion. We also called her "D.J. Sue" because she had her playlists and portable sound system! We highly recommend her as a minister. She took the time to get to know us, before creating a ceremony just for us.Sent on 07/28/2017
Rev. Sue's reply:Thanks very much Glenn! It was a memorable day and I'm grateful to have shared it with you, Riva, your families, and guests aboard the Adventure. Many blessings! Peace, Sue
Tayla · Married on 07/21/2017
When my husband and I were planning our small intimate wedding we didn't know where to begin when planning out our ceremony. When we asked our venue (The Emerson Inn) if they had any suggestions for officiants they raved about Rev Sue. I could not be happier with how our ceremony went. Sue went above and beyond personalizing our ceremony to really represent who we are and also helped us with our vows. There was not a dry eye during our ceremony and our photographer commented on how amazing impressed she was with Sue. If you want someone who will help you handcraft a very special ceremony for you and your fiance, Sue is your officiant.Sent on 08/02/2017
Rev. Sue's reply:Thank you Tayla! I loved getting to know you and Joel and reflecting your love in your ceremony. I'm so glad the Emerson Inn recommended me and look forward to seeing you the next time you visit your favorite place, Rockport! Love, Sue
Derrick · Married on 07/08/2017
Rev. Sue was amazing! She was such a great officiant from the very beginning. She was extremely communicative and very responsive. Beyond just officiating our event, she helped us throughout the entire wedding process including walking us through our vows and and explaining the chain of events. She took all of our requests into consideration and was very flexible. We would recommend her 100%!Sent on 08/11/2017
Rev. Sue's reply:Thank you, Derrick! It was a joy for me to be with you from our very first conversation. You and your wife have an infectious spirit - your love for each other is so palpable. Lots of love to you both! -Sue
Alex · Married on 07/03/2017
Rev. Sue was excellent in every way and truly helped us shape a ceremony that was meaningful to us and entertaining for our guests. Her warmth and expertise really made us feel at ease preparing for the big day, but also on the wedding day itself. She knew the right balance of suggesting things that we might want to incorporate into our ceremony while still listening to what we wanted to do. We really couldn't have asked for anything more in an officiant and if you are consider her for your ceremony, I'd strongly suggest calling or meeting with her. Afterwards, you won't look anywhere else.Sent on 10/21/2017
Rev. Sue's reply:Thank you so much, Alex! I will never forget the way your bride danced down the aisle and how you greeted her with a dance of your own. The lengths you went to speak your vows in Chinese and print scripts for family so they could follow along was so heartening and memorable. May you have many, many happy years together. Love, Sue
Amanda · Married on 06/24/2017
Going into wedding planning, we knew we wanted to have a meaningful and memorable small ceremony. After combing through reviews of various officiants, I hoped Rev. Sue would fit the bill. When Brian and I met her, we instantly connected with her warmth, vibrancy and supportive nature – we knew we had found the right officiant for us!Sent on 07/05/2017
Months later, when I proofread the ceremony she put together for us, I was floored by how much she had captured in just a few hours of chatting. Her attention to detail in planning our ceremony kept me at ease on the big day because I knew everything would go smoothly with Rev. Sue at the helm. Also, it was really important that we write our own vows and Rev. Sue helped review, offered suggestions on wording and made sure that both of ours matched in length and tone. Our guests absolutely loved our ceremony and wouldn’t stop raving about how special it was, which is a testament to Rev. Sue and her commitment to making sure everything was flawless on our wedding day. We’re so lucky we found her and can’t recommend her enough!
Rev. Sue's reply:Amanda, I so enjoyed getting to know you and Brian and being part of your sweet ceremony. From first meeting you two, it was evident how much you mean to each other and how supportive you are to one another - which made writing easy! Wishing you both much happiness in the years ahead! Love Sue

Nancy · Married on 06/14/2017
Rev. Sue was a gift. Everything was perfect, from the first contact, to meeting via Skype to plan and to connect, to the breaking up into pieces of the ceremony's writing, to the resources supplied, to the ideas for how to do things we wanted that we could only vaguely describe. She also referred us to the perfect photographer who did an amazing job for a fraction of the cost we expected.Our wedding day was exactly what we hoped for and was even better than we imagined it could be, and we could feel Rev. Sue's spiritual presence supporting, pushing, encouraging and guiding us all through it.Sent on 06/29/2017
Rev. Sue's reply:Nancy, standing with you and Lou was a tremendous gift and source of inspiration for me. Your deep kindness to one another, complete acceptance of one another, and heartfelt connection to each other was a joy to witness. Many, many blessings to you both!! Love, Sue
Stephanie · Married on 06/02/2017
Rev Sue did such a wonderful job as an officiant for our wedding. From the first meeting with her, we knew wanted Rev Sue to officiate our wedding. She really got to know us as a couple and took a lot of care to make sure she included everything that was important to us in our ceremony. Every part of our ceremony felt personal and special. No one else could have made our wedding more perfect. We can't recommend Rev Sue enough!Sent on 07/02/2017
