Heidi is wonderful to work with. She is easy to talk to very dependable. She was very accommodating of scheduling our ceremony. We actually had two ceremonies due to a military deployment and Heidi was the Chaplain at both, 11 months apart. Heidi was understanding of our situation and we enjoyed her presence and kind words. She was very willing to include anything we wanted in each ceremony including readings, memorandum and a sand ceremony. Heidi's message was loving and heart-felt with a personal touch.

We weren't terribly comfortable with a strongly religious service, but wanted some of the elements of a traditional service. Heidi was able to weave those two requests together and that's not an easy thing! Thanks so much! Heidi was very open minded and accomodating regarding what my husband and I wanted to include in our ceremony. She was willing to arrange the program to include elements that were important to the two of us and invited our input. Heidi met with my husband and I twice prior to the ceremony. She was professional, organized, and punctual to each meeting. Our day was perfect and our vows and ceremony were just as we had hoped. We owe a great deal of that to Heidi!


We met with Heidi on very short notice (it was about 30 days before the wedding!) to discuss and plan our wedding ceremony. We had few ideas and did not really know where to begin. As soon as we met with Heidi, we were at ease; we immediately knew that she knew what SHE was doing even though we did not! She provided us with the structure for the ceremony we needed and was very accomodating when it came to incorporated our own ideas. In the end, it was the ceremony we dreamed of.

On a more personal note, Heidi is one of those rare and genuine individuals that makes you feel like you have been her friend forever. When we were excitable and anxious, Heidi was calm and soothing. When we needed direction, she offered valuable insight. We were truly blessed to have her be such an important part of our wedding day.
