About Reverend Sue Olson

Your Wedding Officiant Buffalo, NY

I have been a wedding officiant for over thirty years. I was ordained as a Unity minister in 1980, and it has been a joy to perform weddings ever since. I was minister of the Unity Church in Buffalo for twenty years. I retired in 2000 and was made Minister Emerita of this church. I can now devote full time to weddings. The Unity Church has a beautiful wedding chapel for weddings with no more than 100 guests, and I have been invited to perform weddings there, and in the gazebo behind the church. I also offer labyrinth wedding ceremonies at this location.

I travel throughout western New York as much as 80 miles in any direction. I offer the first sixty miles from my home free, and I charge 40 cents per mile after that, plus my normal fee. I have my own portable, battery-operated sound system for beach or wilderness weddings.

I perform weddings in my home for couples who come from out of town and don’t have a wedding venue. I have a lovely room in my home with windows overlooking a pond, filled with plants that is my special wedding room. There is no extra charge for using this room. I can engage a witness for those who are traveling and don’t want to bring a witness along. I also offer my home for couples who want a small, private wedding with just a few guests. (No more than 10).

I am very pleased to be part of Weddingwire’s continuing education program and regularly take on-line classes to keep up with the latest developments in my field. I have over thirty reviews on weddingwire.com. and I received the Bride’s Choice Award for excellence in my field this year.

We first won the WeddingWire Brides Choice Award in 2012, and continue to be recognized year after year! That means we are in the top 5% of Wedding Pros nationwide.

What is a Wedding Ceremony?

A wedding is a rite of passage which launches you into your new life together.  When you enter into a rite of passage, it’s time to set new intentions so that you can be happy and successful in your new life together. You are embarking on a transformational journey, and love is the catalyst for transformation -Love for yourself, love for your partner, and love for the family you create together.

Love Matters!

As with all rites of passage, there are challenges to meet.  But you and your fiancee are the heroes who are prepared to overcome them:

  • Not expecting that your partner will make you happy
  • No falling back in to old habits of ineffective communication
  • Learn tools to prevent yourself from being habitually unhappy or dissatisfied
  • Don’t allow distractions to put other goals ahead of love

More Love, More Life!

Most people don’t realize how powerful and pivotal setting intentions can be.  Your wedding ceremony sets the tone for your marriage for all your years together.  You can continue to draw on the loving energy that is generated by your wedding ceremony to keep your love alive and growing.  And you can set a new intention every day to fulfill the intentions you have pledged.

Let me help you design a wedding ceremony that brings you more love and happiness every day of your life.

Ordinary Morning by Joyce Grenfell

“It felt like an ordinary morning.
It began in an Ordinary way.
And then, without warning, 
ordinary morning became an extraordinary day.

Hadn’t the slightest sort of inkling.
No one said love was on the way.
And then within a twinkling,
without the smallest inkling, 
It became an extraordinary day.”

For there you were,
and the world stood still.
I loved you then and I always will.
At first, an ordinary morning
began in an ordinary way.
And then my heart was beating
At this ordinary meeting,
and we both knew
This was not an ordinary day.

We’re All A Little Weird by Robert Fulghum

“We’re all a little weird.  And life is a little weird.
And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours,
we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness 
and call it love – true love.
