Would definitely recommend!
We were blessed to have Ruth officiate our wedding ceremony. From the very thorough planning stage she guided us through to her calm energy on the big day, we couldn't have been more pleased. We didn't know what we needed in an officiant, but she was it. So very attentive, responsive and well-versed.Sent on 08/02/2019
Ruth Ellen Hasser's reply:Thanks, Laura! It was a joy to work with you and Brandon at your beautiful Silver Oaks wedding!

Ruth was the perfect celebrant for our Wedding!
Ruth is amazing!!! She was the perfect celebrant for our wedding ceremony. We explained that we wanted a mostly non-religious ceremony but didn't have a good idea of exactly what we were looking for, having both grown up in religious families. Ruth helped us to create a ceremony that was very special and meaningful to us. During the planning process she was extremely helpful and responded quickly to our emails. She was also great during the ceremony. We were both a little nervous but Rush is very down to earth and guided us through it. She is one of the nicest people we've met and we can't imagine having a better celebrant!!Sent on 10/25/2019
Ruth Ellen Hasser's reply:Thanks for writing this review! I enjoyed celebrating such a beautiful ceremony with two fellow SLU graduates. Natalie, I hope that you learn to drive a stick shift someday. It can be a useful skill! Congrats!

A friend recommended Ruth to us for our wedding celebrant and she couldn't have been better. Ruth did a custom, non religious ceremony for us. It was super personal and we really loved it. We got tons of compliments on how it was the best ceremony due it how personal and funny it was! Ruth is a really sweet person and knows what she is doing. We highly recommend her!Sent on 01/11/2020
Ruth Ellen Hasser's reply:Thanks so much, Mandy and Tom! I can truly say that yours is the first wedding that I've gotten to include Guitar Hero, Wii, and Dexter in the same sentence. Congrats on your marriage!

Ruth took all of our stress away when it came to the ceremony
Ruth was fantastic! She made everything so easy and simple for me. We didn’t even have a rehearsal and the ceremony went perfectly! She made my husband and I so comfortable before and during the ceremony. Would definitely recommend! She worked with us when we wanted to make changes to the script last minute and was great at communicating with us during the whole process.Sent on 10/22/2019
Ruth Ellen Hasser's reply:Thanks, Alex! What a beautiful morning we had to celebrate your marriage with Justin. Congratulations!

Perfect match for us
From our first meeting with Ruth we could tell she was the right one to marry us. She had such a reverence for our relationship and truly wanted to understand who we were as people and as a couple.
Our ceremony was perfection. It was soulful and joyful, and really felt like it belonged to us. We didn’t feel like we were going through the motions or participating in a ritual. It was truly unique, and that was exactly what we wanted. Ruth has a great tenderness and a sense of humor that will immediately make you feel you are in the company of a friend. We felt totally at ease. We are so grateful to have met Ruth, and to have shared this special day with her.Sent on 10/22/2019
Ruth Ellen Hasser's reply:Anna, it was truly a joy for me to celebrate that you and Dennis have found a home in each other. Congratulations on your marriage!
Ilsa · Married on 09/29/2019
We had some last minute changes that left us without an officiant only a month before our wedding, but luckily we found Ruth! She was wonderful, an excellent speaker and a very attentive planner. She took care of everything and provided samples to us for readings and different unity rituals and traditions. Our traditional handfasting ceremony was wonderful and afterwards we got lots of compliments on the readings and wording of the ceremony that stuck with our guests. I will recommend her to anyone I know getting married!Sent on 10/03/2019
Ruth Ellen Hasser's reply:Thanks for trusting me with your "dweam wifin a dweam" ceremony! It was truly a delight to celebrate with you and your families in such a gorgeous setting.

"Where did you find her? She was Amazing!"
I cannot say enough good things about out experience with Ruth! We wanted something simple and sweet and she made our wedding exactly what we wanted it to be. Working with her before hand was so easy and on the day of in the middle of the whirlwind, she was a calm, kind voice that was there to remind us that the day was about us and our beginning our lives together. Both our families wanted to know how we found her because they were so impressed. Having Ruth perform our ceremony was one of the best decisions we made with our wedding.Sent on 08/21/2019
Ruth Ellen Hasser's reply:Alice, it was truly a delight to celebrate with you and James in my favorite park! I loved the personal touches you and your family contributed, making your special day even more special.

Excellent service, super professional!
Ruth was nothing but fantastic from the time we first sat down with her to the day of the wedding. She is a thorough individual who took the time to get to know us as a couple and helped us develop a ceremony to fit our specific wants and needs for the wedding. She responded promptly to our emails in regard to coordinating readings and helped us get all the paperwork we needed for the legal side of marriage. On the actual day of the wedding, she was very polite and conducted a beautiful ceremony for us. I would highly recommend Ruth as an officiant!!Sent on 07/22/2019
Ruth Ellen Hasser's reply:Ashlynne and John, thank you for this great review! I thoroughly enjoyed your intimate wedding ceremony on a beautiful spring day in Bee Tree Park, overlooking the mighty Mississippi!

Ruth captured the essence of our relationship
Ruth did an amazing job officiating our wedding. She was considerate of asking about our beliefs and wants and walked us through what we needed to do to get our marriage liscence. The ceremony that she wrote brought smiles to everyone's faces. She really managed to perfectly capture the love and humor in our relationship. If you want a wonderful experience on your wedding day, talk to Ruth. I wouldn't dream of anyone else announcing us married.Sent on 12/04/2018

Ruth was professional and extremely helpful throughout the entire process. She met with us and took the time to understand what we wanted for our wedding ceremony.

Jessica · Married on 06/17/2017
It was a pleasure working with Ruth from the first Skype meeting to the final moment, our wedding. There was a lot of communication along the way. Ruth asked us each to fill out a questionnaire which was used to create the very personal story she told during our ceremony. If there was an option to give more than 5 stars I would. Thanks to Ruth I feel that our ceremony was more genuine and personal than some of the other weddings I have recently attended. Not that there is anything wrong with a traditional scripted ceremony. Thanks again Ruth for making our ceremony, the most important part of the day, so special. Now stop reading the reviews and just give Ruth a call because she is AMAZING! :)Sent on 10/20/2017
Ruth Ellen Hasser's reply:Jessica, it is always fun to work with couples like you and Michael who keep focused on the essentials. Thank you for trusting me with your ceremony. And thanks for the great review!

Bryan · Married on 04/21/2017
Ruth was wonderful! My wife and I had just had a very large ceremonial wedding in Vietnam, so we just wanted something short (and very affordable) to make it official. Even though we purchased the lowest-priced service Ruth offers, she still took her time and really made it special. I'm very pleased with our decision!Sent on 05/04/2017
Ruth Ellen Hasser's reply:Bryan, thank you for the opportunity to celebrate with you and An!
