Absolutely made our Wedding Day special.
A big thank you to Wendy for officiating our Wedding. She was wonderful and made our ceremony special. This was a destination wedding so we actually didn't get to meet Wendy until the day of our Wedding on the Beach in Empire. It was the perfect place for our small ceremony with family and a few very close friends. Thank you for making our Wedding special for us!Sent on 09/04/2019

Wendy was amazing!
Wendy was great from start to finish! She takes her time to get to know you and made our day more special then I could have ever hoped for! All my guests were raving about her and our ceremony. She listened to what we wanted and put her lovely words into the ceremony to make it so intimate and perfect. You won’t be disappointed! Thanks so much Wendy!Sent on 08/14/2019

Small Destination Wedding
Wendy was amazing to work with! ***HIGHLY RECOMMEND*** I live 4 hours from the location in which our wedding took place. Wendy was able to help me find a venue, cake, photographer, etc. Via email and phone over only a couple month time span! During our planning process a large medical issue occurred putting us under more stress. Through that whole process she was so patient and kind helping in whatever way she could to alleviate stress. By the end of the process we consider Wendy a friend and amazing person. We were so lucky to have her marry us!Sent on 08/13/2019

Stress Free and Perfect
Weddings Your Way made our whole ceremony process easy and stress free. Wendy performed our ceremony and it was exactly what we could have hoped for. With a few face to face meetings and phone calls Wendy was able to create a personal ceremony for us. She submitted our paperwork and directed the rehearsal to make the whole weekend as stress free as possible. I highly recommend Weddings Your Way if you are looking for someone to perform your ceremony in Northern Michigan!Sent on 07/03/2019

Wendy was great from the start to the finish. She really helped make our amazing day great. She performed a wonderful service for our wedding. My new husband and I enjoyed her and so did our guests. We had never meant Wendy prior to our rehearsal but it felt as if we knew her for a long time. Your wedding day is suppose to be one of the best days of your life and ours was. It truly helps when you have caring people like Wendy there to make things smooth and relaxing. Thank you Wendy.Sent on 10/10/2018

For a Beautiful Ceremony
Wendy was our officiant for our September 2018 wedding. She was the first person we met with and instantly knew that we wanted her to be a part of our wedding day - Wendy seemed genuinely excited for us and had some great options for the ceremony. We worked together before the ceremony to make it exactly what we were looking for. Wendy did a fantastic job on writing our ceremony, it turned out beautifully! She attended our wedding rehearsal which helped to make every run smoothly! Wendy was very professional, yet heartfelt at the same time - I would highly recommend her!Sent on 11/26/2018

My husband and I had a small wedding (35 people) on a beach at Sleeping Bear Dunes, and we wanted an officiant who would keep the ceremony light-hearted and simple, but meaningful. Wendy did exactly that. When we spoke to her on the phone before hiring her, she was very attentive to our requests and answered all of our questions honestly. We met her in person once before the actual ceremony, and she took notes and was very responsible about all our little requests and questions. She complied with everything we asked for, and surprised us at the ceremony by giving an extremely lovely and sincere talk about marriage. Her words did not seem generic at all, but rather that she was speaking directly to us from the heart. Everyone was sniffling and laughing throughout the whole ceremony. Wendy also offered some really creative and cool ideas, and the one we chose is now a tradition we plan to uphold for the rest of our lives. I highly recommend Wendy to couples in search of a responsible, friendly, and wise officiant who genuinely loves her job. My husband and I are very thankful to have met her and will remember her participation in the happiest day of our lives with great fondness. Thank you, Wendy!! :)Sent on 08/15/2018

Wendy was so easy to work with throughout our wedding planning! The ceremony was beautiful and just perfect for what we wanted. We got married at Black Star Farms (6/30/18) and had the option of a “wine” ceremony through Wendy but chose not to add this in as it was 94 degrees out that day! I would definitely check out the wine themed ceremony-especially if you're getting married on a vineyard- it was just too hot for us! I think our guests appreciated a short and sweet ceremony :) Choose Weddings your way; You wont be disappointed!Sent on 08/06/2018

Wendy you certainly have a gift! You made our ceremony so special and personalized. Every guest (and Garland staff) said our ceremony was “the best they had ever witnessed”. When Ed and I renew our vows down road, we hope that you will still be doing what you love. May you and Hutch have a fantastic summer of love!Sent on 06/20/2018

Our experience working with Wendy was excellent! She made every step of the way easy for us and we couldn't have been happier with the result. We were married at The Shores of Grand Traverse Resort and it was perfect. Wendy was very responsive throughout the process and you could tell she truly cared about making our ceremony special. We felt like we knew her for years. I would highly recommend using Weddings Your Way! Thanks again Wendy! We really enjoyed working with you and will recommend you to others in the future.Sent on 10/02/2017

We used Weddings Your Way to book our clergy services for our big day. The owner Wendy Hutchinson was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. She introduced my husband and I to Reverend Alan Strange. He was simply amazing. He was extremely helpful in every step of the planning process. Reverend Alan would contact in the method that worked best for us, he was available through e-mail, phone, text - which was great! He'd check in periodically to ensure the planning process was going smoothly. Reverend Alan put our mind at ease, from the moment we met him. Our guests complimented us numerous times on our ceremony... We couldn't be happier with our choice. Thanks so much Reverend Alan :)Sent on 12/03/2017

We used Weddings Your Way for our wedding in Traverse City. We asked for a recommendation from our contact at our wedding site location, and she recommended Wendy from Weddings Your Way.Sent on 08/26/2017
We had an initial email exchange and then signed up with Wendy. Wendy was very flexible about how much or how little time we wanted to spend planning the wedding. Since we were from out of town and were having a smaller wedding, we wanted to make it quick and easy and handle most of the discussion via email. We emailed her a few months in and she was very flexible in meeting with us when we were in town for a visit. We planned our wedding at that visit, and the remaining time we emailed.
Wendy made sure to find out what type of wedding we wanted. She was all about making our wedding customized our way. She provided lists of example vows and ring verses for us to chose, or we could customize our own. She was open to religious or non-religious weddings. She was also flexible with the rehearsal. Since we were doing a wedding at a location she is very familiar with, we opted out of the rehearsal, which allowed us to save some money.
The wedding was beautiful, and Wendy did a great job. She was very positive and professional. The tone was just right for our wedding. After the wedding she provided us with a folder that contained a copy of our wedding ceremony. All the license paperwork was handled quickly.
All in all I would highly recommend Wendy. I know she does a lot of weddings, so she has a lot of experience. Our experience was very positive.
