I started Affordable I Do’s in 2005 to provide couples with a reliable and creative wedding officiant outside of the traditional church setting. As owner and director I work personally with each and every couple to develop their custom ceremony, handle all scheduling and make certain that everything goes smoothly. I offer dozens of unique and beautiful ceremonies and components to help you create a ceremony that is heartfelt and original. To ensure the best care for all of our clients, my officiating services, in the months of May through October, are reserved exclusively under our Perfect Day Ceremony package.
Since the inception of Affordable I Do’s I have created and performed hundreds of wedding ceremonies. Prior to that, I owned and operated a business in the laboratory instrument field with my father. Throughout my career I have had extensive experience in business management, public speaking and the performing arts as well as in ministry and dramatic training for couples, teens and children. The opportunity to assist couples in creating the wedding of their dreams is, to me, the greatest of honors. As a writer, choreographer, producer and director; my skills for envisioning and creating ceremonies serve our clients well. I focus on the individual personalities of my clients to guide them through the process of creating their ceremony. I strive to enhance their vision of the ceremony by making suggestions designed to aide their creative process, while staying true to who they are and how they feel.
My primary role at Affordable I Do’s is to ensure you receive excellent service in the creation of your ceremony and in matching you with the officiant best suited to your personality and ceremony style. Working with a large group of excellent and highly trained officiants ensures that, if for some extreme circumstance an officiant is unable to make their engagement, I can quickly and efficiently provide an alternate officiant with all of the ceremony details. Thus alleviating the stress that such a situation would normally create.
Dear Susan, Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding ceremony so very meaningful. You truly captured the essence of our relationship and somehow framed it in the most beautiful language. I will never forget the sincerity in your eyes and your voice as you performed the ceremony. Patrick and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We received many many comments on how lovely the ceremony was! I think the biggest compliment (which in fact came from several guests), was that they thought the three of us had known each other for quite some time. This tells me that you truly do have a passion and a gift for getting to know your couples and speaking in such an authentic way about their love while joining them in marriage.
Susan, We wanted to thank you for being part of our “Perfect Day”! The whole process was pleasant and memorable and most of all STRESS FREE!! We truly enjoyed the day and will call on you again when the “time” comes! 🙂
