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, I will send along a formal thank you at a later date, but so many people have told us it was the most beautiful ceremony they’ve ever attended, and that they were left in tears! What a perfect moment it was! I was really able to soak it all in. It was such a pleasure getting to know you. I will happily pass along your contact to others. Thank you, again!
Thank you so much for creating such a beautiful wedding ceremony for us! It was truly a special day leading to a lifetime of happiness. You do wonderful work and we cannot thank you enough.
Thank you so much for all your wonderful help creating such and amazing ceremony for us. We feel so lucky to have you as our officiant!
Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding. You definitely were the leader that day for the both of us. Thank you for being patient and understanding of our wants and needs for a wedding ceremony. We both wish you great success and happiness for you in your future adventures. Thanks again.
Dear Reverend Susan,
Thank you so much for designing an absolutely perfect custom ceremony! We got so many compliments on what a fantastic job you’ve done! We could not have had a better ceremony and we were so glad to have you there! Thank you for making our day unforgettable!
Thank you for helping us to make our wedding celebration a day we’ll always remember! Everything was wonderful and we appreciate your efforts!
In deepest gratitude,
Reviewed on The Knot: I realized early on that there are so many unknown details that go into a wedding. But Reverend Susan was flawless in handling each one, which provided such a comfort level in such an intensely exciting and emotion-packed time of life. But as good as Reverend Susan was with all the practical details, she was even better with the content and themeing of our ceremony. She took time to truly listen to what we had to say about our beliefs in what we want our marriage to be and how our wedding wanted to celebrate this. The best part was that she found simply beautiful and compelling ways to incorporate our hopes and wishes. The bottom line is that Reverend Susan is exceptional and simply a very good person.
We can’t thank you enough for your beautiful job on our wedding ceremony. You did such a great job in getting everything in order and we really enjoyed the planning process with you. We felt that in the short time we’ve gotten to know each other, you were quickly able to see the inner workings of our relationship. Your wedding message was so meaningful to us because it fit us perfectly, it was such an absolute pleasure working with you. Thank you for making our day even more special.
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! 🙂
Rev. Susan, Thank you so much for making our wedding special! We appreciate all the work you put into the ceremony.
Dear Susan, Thank you for writing and performing such a beautiful ceremony for us. Many people commented on how nice the message was. We really felt you spoke to who we are as a couple!

Dear Susan, How blessed we both feel to have found you! Your ability to take our love story and turn that into a beautiful wedding ceremony is truly a gift. Thanks for your encouragement and support through our journey to marriage.
Dear Susan, Thank you so much for helping us make our day so special. We heard such wonderful things from people all night about how lovely the ceremony was! Thank you for all of your help and kind words. We will never forget our “Perfect Day”, it was beyond anything we could have imagined.
Susan, Thank you for making our wedding day so special and creating such a beautiful ceremony. It was everything we dreamed of and really captured our relationship! We love that you used rock climbing in the wedding message you wrote! You would not believe how many people came up to us saying how beautiful the ceremony was. You really did a wonderful job and also kept things very organized. We will definitely recommend you to all our friends getting married. You were wonderful to work with and we had a lot of fun getting to know you in the process. Much love,
Rev. Susan, I appreciate all of your help and patience. You really made the vision of our ceremony come to life, so thank you very much.
