Shadi made our day so special
As many couples getting married in 2020, the process has come with a lot of letdowns. But deciding to go forth with our original wedding date in a tiny, intimate ceremony was absolutely the right choice for us. Shadi helped make it that much more special. She was incredibly supportive throughout this entire process of rescheduling and altering plans. Her enthusiasm for our decision to go ahead and elope was the encouragement we needed. She worked with us to create a perfect ceremony that really captured who both my husband and I are as a couple. Shadi was such a bright light in our pandemic-altered wedding, and I will always be so incredibly thankful for her.Sent on 07/09/2020

We are really glad we found Shadi! She was very attentive to details, a breeze to work with, and flexible/accommodating when we had to shift from a 200+ person wedding to a 10 person ceremony at the park due to the pandemic. Shadi went over everything with us beforehand, which really personalized our ceremony. Her positive and fun attitude and great speaking skills made for a special day. A joy to work with - we recommend without reservation.Sent on 07/09/2020

We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day. Shadi was absolutely amazing and brought such a special touch to our ceremony. She put so much thought into her words and captured the moment perfectly. We also did a wine bottle / love letters in a box ceremony and had so many guests want to do it with their loved ones when they got home. What an absolutely beautiful day it was and we can't thank Shadi enough!Sent on 02/06/2020

Couldn't have asked for more!
Our experience with Shadi and Rosewater Rituals was truly a blessing. Everything aligned perfectly and I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful ceremony. Shadi's words and poetry were exactly what we wanted. Our wedding guests were so delighted and said the ceremony was the most beautiful they'd seen and experienced. Shadi did a fantastic job in bringing our story together, her interview process was seamless and efficient, and she brought in new ideas to help us make our ceremony even more personal.Sent on 11/22/2019

We 💗 Shadi!!
I can’t imagine anyone better to officiate our wedding! Shadi was an absolute delight. She was generous with her time in getting to know us and wrote us a beautiful ceremony. During the reception and for days after our wedding countless people told us that it was the best wedding ceremony they had ever heard - heartfelt and unique to our relationship. I can’t recommend Shadi highly enough!Sent on 09/11/2019

Amazing & Beautiful
Not only are her prices reasonable, she gets just as excited as the couple she marries to help them start their journey in life as 1. She listened to our story and wanted to make our dreams of marriage come a reality, for that there are not enough words to thank her. Not only do I recommend Shadi & Rosewater Rituals, I highly recommend her to those who are just simply in love! Thank you a million times Shadi & Rosewater Rituals for helping my new husband and I start our lives together as 1. Many Blessings!!!!Sent on 04/30/2019

The Absolute Best!!
My husband and I were looking for someone to marry us that would make our ceremony personal, fun, and romantic. I found Shadi on wedding wire and fell in love with her bio, and after meeting with her in person, fell in love with her! She did an unbelievable job listening to our story, pulling out the most important and beautiful parts that I didn't even know how badly I needed to have said during our ceremony. She was so flexible, working with us whenever we had questions, and personalizing our ceremony so that it fit us perfectly. Weddings can be so stressful but anytime I spoke with her she relieved so much of the tension with her bright personality. She was so organized with everything- she sent us our ceremony words with plenty of time to discuss everything, and was on top of getting our marriage license and sending it off. I knew because we hired her we had one less thing to worry about on such a hectic day. I would highly recommend her to anyone that wants to have the greatest wedding and work with one of the best people I've had the pleasure of meeting! Thank you so much for everything you did, we loved you!!Sent on 11/19/2018

Our wedding was a brunch dance party that happened to have a wedding at it. Shadi quickly understood the laid back vibe and that we seriously wanted it to be fun and stress-free for all our family and guests.
We meet with Shadi with the intent that we might have a friend or family member officiate our wedding. Immediately, we felt as if we were meeting a friend whom we hadn't seen in a while and decided on the spot that we wanted her to officiate us. Bonus points as Shadi used to work at the restaurant we were holding our wedding.
For the most part we knew what we wanted and quickly received a draft and provided iterations about seven or eight months out. Jumping less than a month or so from our day we provided an update as we wanted to save some of the fun bits for our vows. All in all we had perhaps three versions of the script and was a swift and painless process.
Shadi is extremely personable and professional, kind and caring, silly and optimistic, fun and friendly, flexible, and a great person who listens and takes interest in her clients.
Perhaps one of the best things Shadi asked of us to do during the process was to text her once a month to touch base. I did just that and before it it came naturally to check in with her– especially when our plans started solidifying, we got our marriage license, or other mini milestones during the wedding process.
By the time it came to the wedding, we found an officiant– and a friend. She was the perfect person to stand up there with us to marry my best friend and me. We love the vibe and energy she brings– in our ceremony and when your posts pop up on our feed. Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without Shadi.Sent on 09/29/2018

Shadi was amazing, the way she laughed with our families on our big day made our hearts warm. We planned our Rochester wedding from Kentucky, Shadi communicated with us primarily via Gmail and Googledocs per my request. She was familiar with our wedding venue (Deerfield Country Club) which was very helpful on our big day. The love story Shadi wrote for us was lovely, 100% recommend if you want to have a memorable and light hearted ceremony!Sent on 10/04/2018

Shadi is a true pleasure to work with. We have a rather unique story and came to her with a picture in our minds of how we wanted our ceremony to go. Shadi was full of great ideas and understood how to weave this into the ceremony that would ultimately become picture perfect. We couldn't be happier with Rosewater Rituals!Sent on 10/21/2018

Everyone Loved Our Ceremony
We had such a wonderful experience with Shadi for our wedding ceremony. She was easy to work with, and very responsive to our needs and communication. We met with her in person, and filled out a detailed questionnaire, which allowed her to write a personalized ceremony for us. We really appreciated that she got the ceremony to us a month ahead and was able to make all the changes we desired. She was very professional and well spoken for the actual event, and we received many complements from our guests that they loved the ceremony and Shad's presentation. It was thoughtful, genuine and us - we couldn't have been happier!Sent on 05/04/2020
