Dear Reverend Marlan,
As a Banquet Manager I have witnessed countless ceremonies both religious and civil, so when it came time to choose someone to perform my own ceremony it was a difficult choice. However, I know my choice was the right one. We don't know where to begin to thank you for the wonderful ceremony you performed for our wedding. It was so personal, so spiritual, so graceful and peaceful. As I look at the pictures, there are many tear-filled eyes in the audience. Everyone was touched by the spoken words as well as the spirituality and love present in the room. We truly appreciate your suggestions from the candle lighting with our children to the presentation of flowers to our parents as well as the silent meditation that gave everyone reason to reflect. We continue to hear from our guests that it was the nicest and most meaningful ceremony they have ever attended. Everyone was included and felt a part of the ceremony. We couldn't have asked for more. We will cherish the memory forever. Thank you for such a lovely memory.

Dear Susan,
It has been six days since our wedding and our guests are still calling to compliment us on our ceremony. It was exactly as we dreamed. Everyone felt involved and very much a part of our celebration. Even our parents and my grandmother told us how special it was .. although, as you recall, they originally wanted a Catholic ceremony in a church. To say the least, they were impressed and so very proud.

Dear Susan,
William and I want to thank you for the very beautiful and spiritual ceremony you created for Rachel and Tony's wedding. I was able to be very present during the ceremony, truly listening to your words. That was important to me. It has been a joy to view the ceremony again, thanks to our videographer, and appreciate, even more, that special day. Many of our guests have expressed the feelings of intimacy and spiritually they experienced during the ceremony.
Thanks again

Susan was a great officiant who provided us with a personalized ceremony. She tailored the ceremony to what worked for the two of us a couple. She was extremely professional and answered all questions we had!

Susan, we just wanted to take a minute to tell you how much we enjoyed working with you on our wedding day at Fontaine Vineyards. The ceremony was beautiful, and we both felt so comfortable knowing you were in control and running the ship! We had so many people comment on how perfectly things went, and how much they liked the ceremony. They were all very impressed with you, as were we!
We were thrilled to have you play such an important role on our big day.

We were so happy with everything that Susan was able to do for us and how well she was able to do it. She is exceptionally gifted as a speaker and we couldn't have been happier with the ceremony :)
BeLoved Ceremony
We were actually originally suppose to have someone else officiate our wedding, but that person was unable to at the last minute. I found Susan's website through the grace of spirit with only a few days to spare and I could not be happier. She made our wedding so special and intimate! Every moment was so meaningful! Everyone said it was just beautiful!
BeLoved Ceremony
Susan was amazing. My husband and I are from Charleston SC. Our wedding was in Bryson City NC. Susan was so understanding of our schedules and taking time to call us and go over our ceremony. She was available any time I needed her. She tailored the ceremony to fit our relationship, and our desires. She referenced our grandparents that had passed. This was especially important to us. We were both very close to our grandparents. I would gladly recommend Susan to anyone wanting a personalized wedding experience, and not the run of the mill "I do's"

Dearest Susan,
Thank you for providing such a beautiful ceremony for our wedding. I LOVE IT!
In reading through the words again; I can hear your beautiful delivery of them. It takes us back, not only to our wedding day, but to the first time we met and you translated the words that would marry Monte and I.
You moved me to tears as you translated the story of our commitment to one another. There was no doubt that we had found the words that would marry us.
Little did I know that your words were not only a gift to us, but a gift to all of our guests.
After the ceremony, and still today, our guests have shared how your message moved them.
Thank you for providing a ceremony that not only we will remember, but one that our guests will remember as well.
You truly have a gift that allows people to connect with you and your message. You have a special way of conveying the Tenderness and Spirituality of marriage while Honoring each others' individuality.
Monte and I are so fortunate to have met you. I hope we do stay in touch. I really enjoy speaking with you.
Thank you for making our wedding so special.

Susan was excellent! Provided structure/outline to the ceremony during planning but was also open to any free-lance ideas. She was incredibly well-spoken and had excellent delivery of the ceremony. I highly recommend her!
BeLoved Ceremony
I cannot say enough positive things about our experience working with Susan. From the time of our first meeting with her we felt very confident that she was the perfect person to officiate our ceremony. We wanted an interfaith ceremony and had a difficult time finding someone who truly understood what that meant. She was extremely professional and helpful throughout the preparations. And the ceremony was absolutely beautifully done. Many of our guests commented that she was the best officiant that they had ever heard. Some even asked for her contact information. I would recommend Susan to any friend without a single reservation.

Dear Susan,
We wish to express our thanks & gratitude for the most moving and beautiful ceremony. People really listened to your words and it was clear that they were deeply affected. It is rare that a ceremony could be as memorable as ours was. Your words and presence really touched a chord in our guests, as was evidenced by the laughter and the tears. The part you played in the most wonderful and important day in both our lives was unique and most important to us. What a fabulous way to start our lives together - with words and thought so true and perfect for us.

Dear Rev. Marlan,
Where to start ? Our ceremony was exceptional. Every one of our guests commented on the depth and beauty. Our ceremony was beyond our dreams. Thank you for being a beautiful and loving person that excels at what you do.
BeLoved Ceremony
From the first time we met Susan Marlan, we knew for certain she had to be the person to marry us. Once you meet her, you'll understand what I mean. Susan is a force of nature. On the big day, she calmly yet decisively guided us through the ceremony in a way only an experienced professional can. Her genuine and thoughtful writing and delivery of the wedding ceremony was beautiful and joyful, but had a certain gravity to it that honored the significance of the day. We (and many of our guests) especially loved that the ceremony focused on the joy and celebration of love and life.
BeLoved Ceremony
Susan Marlan was wonderful. She helped Steven and me create a perfect ceremony to celebrate our love. 
Susan was great at communicating, particularly important for me and Steven and we had a destination wedding. The first time we spoke to her, she spent 45 minutes on the phone with us making sure that she was able to help us create a personal ceremony that represented us. Most of our communication was via e-mail, and Susan always responded quickly. 
The ceremony itself was beautiful and exactly what we wanted. Steven and I are so glad we chose Susan

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Susan to officiate our wedding in Asheville, NC. We live outside of Chicago and had about 20 of our family and friends join us for a small wedding ceremony in Pritchard Park. Being out of state and trying to plan a destination wedding was a bit challenging, but as soon as we reached out to Susan, we knew we had to have her as our officiant. We spoke over the phone and went over the kind of ceremony we were looking to have, various options for readings/rituals/prayers, and the overall flow of the ceremony. She was very responsive to any questions we had leading up to our wedding day. On the wedding day, she arrived on time, made us feel at ease, and gave us a wedding ceremony that truly exceeded our expectations. She is a very warm, genuine, caring, and loving soul, and she was a huge part in helping to make our wedding day perfect.

Susan was absolutely wonderful on our special day. She made our wedding ceremony very personal and heartfelt. We have never felt so welcomed and loved by someone that had never met my wife and I. We have waited 15 years for this moment and she made it everything the both of us dreamed of for our special day. We would highly recommend Susan to any couple that is wanting to marry the love of their life. We would like to thank you Susan for all that you did for us as a couple. You truly are a gift to same sex couples that have been waiting for this moment

My husband and I planned a last minute get away to elope in Asheville. I contacted the Chamber of Commerce and was directed to the proper contacts to put me in touch with Susan. Our initial call was made on a Thursday and our wedding took place the following Saturday. We were so excited to have a positive response to our request with such short notice. We couldn't have been more pleased with Susan's service and flexibility. Rob and I would highly recommend Susan to all couples looking for someone to add that special touch to their special day! She was a sheer delight and we can't thank her enough!

We were happy with Susan’s ceremony, it included our family. Our family that came with us has supported us from the beginning. We were very excited to be abe to let them know how much we appreciate them. The whole ceremony was created for us and our love. Thank you Susan. We felt like we were married before, but now everyone knows that we are married.

Susan was an absolute delight to work with for our very small, no frills ceremony. Her various options for the program were comprehensive and beautiful. So very gracious and cordial given that we were so nervous and had zero experience with this! Very organized and professional and certainly gave us a sense of calm before and throughout the ceremony.

The road to our wedding day was long and complicated, and you enhanced our memories and spirit of the day. Your words were so spiritual, you were so embracing, and the ceremony was absolutely perfect for us. On our wedding day, with your guidance and care, we were filled with joy. Our prayers were answered...for which we are grateful to you.

We would, without hesitation, recommend Susan to anyone looking for a personalized wedding ceremony experience. She is undoubtedly gifted at her work! After spending ample time searching for the "one", we contacted Susan. She responded quickly to discuss our ceremony line by line, word by word. In the beginning, we really did not know where to start and I was impressed by Susan's recommendations for our ceremony based on our life and our beliefs, but which was also respectful of the guests that would be attending. I especially appreciated the recommendations she made regarding the flow of our ceremony. We ended up incorporating a sand exchange which I originally thought was too trendy and a passing fad. However, being that we met in Florida, we were able to collect sand from the beach in the city where we met and used it in the ceremony. It was simply perfect and totally "us". I had numerous family members and friends approach me and say how impressed they were with the ceremony and that they could tell it was carefully planned. Susan was absolutely critical to the success of our wedding and we cannot thank her enough!

I couldn't have asked for a better ceremony. Susan was very professional and friendly and she spoke with us early on before the ceremony to make sure all our wishes were granted and what we wanted to say and what we didn't want to say. We are not a religious couple, and she was completely open and understanding to that. I was so nervous that we would be judged for it, but Susan made us comfortable and she truly shows how much our ceremony meant to her. My husband and I do not like to be the center of attention, but the words that were spoken put us at ease and we couldn't have been happier with how our ceremony went. I highly recommend Susan for any ceremony you need regardless of your beliefs. She has a big open heart and she truly makes you feel special.

Absolutely loved the way Susan did our ceremony. We met months before and chose exactly how we wanted the ceremony to go and got to make changes all the way up until I was about to walk down the isle. Susan made sure to stay in contact with us over the months before the wedding and that made us feel very comfortable with her. I definitely recommend her.

Susan. Thank you so much for helping us create a customized wedding ceremony tailored to our beliefs and wishes. Not only that, your creative ideas made it even more tender and heart felt. It's amazing that we planned the ceremony over the phone and met you only minutes before the ceremony. We could tell you were committed to making this a day never to be forgotten...and you delivered! Your guidance and calm voice carried us from the first phone call to the "I do's". Thank you Susan, for being there for all of us who want something other than the traditional. I feel as if I have known you forever. If anyone out there wants that person who truly "gets" what you want, I strongly advise you contact Susan immediately. As soon as you hear her voice and ideas, you will need to look no further. Susan, you truly are a blessing, and we will hold you dear in our hearts forever...
