Up-Close and Personal Package

We are so incredibly appreciative to Heidi for making our wedding day extra special. When we were planning our wedding, we researched officiants and loved reading through the nice things that people said about Heidi.

We decided to reach out, and shortly thereafter, we met for a consultation. Heidi was so friendly and personable as she took the time to get to know us as a couple. We had a great meeting, and within the first few minutes of speaking to her, we had already decided we wanted her to officiate.

Heidi incorporated small, personal touches into our ceremony and found the most beautiful way to weave our love story into our wedding day, particularly as it related to making sure our daughter felt included. Those small personal touches really made such a huge difference. -- Janelle

Heidi is simply incredible at her craft. Her skill, knowledge, organization, kindness, responsiveness and ability to keep a constant line of communication with us was beyond helpful and much appreciated. Evan and I decided to engage in pre-martial counseling sessions before we tied the knot and it was one of the best decisions we made during our engagement. During our pre-martial counseling session Heidi challenged us to think about our values, goals, hopes, dreams and personality traits. It was an incredible opportunity to be able to talk to a third-party about our strengths, weaknesses and plans for the future. We both gained valuable “take-a-ways” that have helped us grow and learn more about each other. --Megan

Heartfelt Packages & Marriage Enrichment

"From the moment we met with Heidi we fell in love with her personality and her spirit. Being an LGBT couple it was difficult to find an officiant who would agree to marry us. Heidi's exact words to us were "God created love" and from that moment we were convinced she was the one. We could not have chosen a better officiant and we cannot wait to visit her in the future to keep us on the right track in our marriage. Simpy put, HEIDI IS AMAZING!!!" --Sha'Quitta
