A Wedding Officiant for All Seasons

A Wedding Officiant for All Seasons

A wedding officiant for all seasons! I performed an outdoor wedding in the town of Carroll in Lavender Valley on February 15th. Temperature was 23 degrees. Such a beautiful site for a wedding and such a beautiful bride!

 

 

“We had a small ceremony, and Sue helped to make it perfect! She has a calm, unassuming demeanor about her that makes you feel at ease. She performs a wide range of ceremonies, and we were able to create our own personalized ceremony using the various readings and formats she had available. She was also quick to let us know that she is flexible, and we were welcome to change, edit or even write our own vows. Sue is incredibly kind, and we are indebted to her for our wonderful day and everlasting memories. I would not hesitate to recommend Sue and Greater Buffalo Weddings for anyone searching for a wedding or ceremony officiant.”

 

“We wanted to thank you for conducting our Oct 5th wedding ceremony! You were an absolute joy to work with and we were so pleased with how everything went. Love, Brittany & Mike Bucelli”

On March 31st, 2012 Rev. Sue performed a renewal of vows for 31 couples in Niagara Falls. The service was beyond what we could have wished for. So touching and loving that some of the couples that did not partake said afterwards that they wished they had teh Renewal as well. Caring, thougfulness, kindness, understanding are just some of the words to describe the service. We had different faiths taking par in the Renewal and Rev. Sue made each one feel as if she were speaking to them directly. I would recommend Rev. Sue to anyone, be it a bride or a couple renewing their vows…she is someone that truly makes your special day very special.

“Rev. Sue Olson, this note is just to mention our sincerely gratitude. You  presided our wedding ceremony in March 2012. Since our first telephone conversation, the first time that we met you at your home, and during our wedding ceremony you presented yourself with such a calm and sincere thoughtfulness. D & I travel from outstate to your home very nervous and uncertain on what to expect. You and your husband open your loving hearts and your home to us, making our wedding day memorable for the rest of our lives. Your beautiful meaningful words during the ceremony are and would be pounding in our hearths until our eternity. The simple, but delicate wedding candle ceremony was an extra loving touch representing with the lighting that we become one. Back at home, we are in ecstasies! Rev Olson, you make our seventeen-year relationship a reality. With your help,  we were able to express our vows to each other. No words could express how much we appreciate your kindness. Thank you Reverend, thank you to your  husband too. Sincerely, D & M”

 

“Dear Sue, thank you again for making our wedding day so uniquely special and so perfect! People commented on the love and “personalized” ceremony. They had never experienced such a lovely and meaningful wedding service. Thank you! You gave me permission to write a service that truly exressed our values, commitments, and spiritual beliefs. It was unforgettable. Love and appreciation, Mary & Richard”

“Rev. Sue did our wedding.  It was very small at a local waterfall park.  She was amazing to work with.  She was easy to get hold of, and answered all of our last minute questions and concerns.  She is very good at what she does. Sue made my husband and I feel very comfortable.  She was understanding of our religious choices and supported us with every decision we made.  I would highly recommend her for anyone’s wedding.” ~ Devynn and Nathan

We were married on a beautiful sunny day in April 2010. It was a lovely, intimate ceremony by a stream on land we have in rural Chatauqua County. We were so fortunate to have found Rev. Sue Olson of Greater Buffalo Weddings. She was the right person with the right spirit to understand what we were looking for, and to officiate our ceremony with dignity, grace, and love. Thank you so much Reverend Sue.”  ~The O’Connor Wedding, Spring 2010

    Rev. Sue Olson did an amazing job with our wedding ceremony! She let us personalize the ceremony, allowing us to add readings and a sand ceremony, and it was exactly what we had always dreamed of. Everyone commented on what a wonder job she did!

    Sue made our happy, special day exceptional. From the time we first spoke with her by phone until our ceremony, Sue always made us feel important, and we knew that we were in good hands. We were impressed at the guidance we had in preparing the structure of our ceremony, while we still were given the freedom to make it unique and personal. By the time of our ceremony, we felt like Sue had become a friend, and I genuinely believe that she and her husband (who assists her with audio equipment and was happy to take pictures too!) will remain our friends going forward. Sue has a calming, deliberate spirit, and she is a big reason why our wedding day is an incredible memory.

  5. Glen and Michele Collins says:

    Our wedding began with an ancient “Handfasting” ceremony, surrounded by a circle of our closest family and friends. We chose this unique ceremony to honor our heritage. The handfasting ceremony was eloquently performed by Reverend Sue Olson. In ancient legends, lovers were united together as they “tied the knot” in the tradition of Celtic handfasting. The ceremony was especially common in Ireland and Scotland. It was commonly the way that couples were “officially” married. High praise for Reverend Sue. The beauty and eloquence of the ceremony brought a magical aire the was felt by all. We continue to continue to receive wonderful comments a year and a half after our wedding. Our sincere thanks to Revered Sue Olson.
