Yes, she was really laid-back and happy to help us. Not like some of the old fuddy-duddys we met with.
I was surprised she was so knowledgeable and understanding of our situation. I have kids from a previous marriage, and she was happy to include them in the wedding.
We had my sister sing and some family read passages. We also included the kids in a family unity ceremony and gave them presents.
They liked that it was fun and light. Everyone laughed during the wedding and enjoyed themselves.

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? Her presence was always calming and comfortable.
What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected? Well, nothing was unexpected but she did recommend many options for unity ceremonies that we just hadn't considered. We were able to choose a unity ceremony that better suited our cultural backgrounds instead of the same old, boring candle-lighting. She has a lot of knowledge about cultural traditions.
How did you personalize your wedding ceremony? We had a moment where we honored our fathers and then added a unity ceremony after we exchanged rings. We also had a couple of our friends perform readings.
Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests? They loved it all! It was upbeat, made people relax and laugh, and our fathers loved being surprised with the honoring piece in the ceremony.
Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? She totally made us feel comfortable because we got to make our wedding exactly the way we wanted it to be.
What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected? She surprised us by telling us that our ideas were great. We talked with another couple of ministers who wanted us to do our wedding their way, which wasn't at all what we wanted. We were maybe a little different, but that's what made our wedding so special! Rev. Hepp was so very accommodating and happy to change things up from the "normal" wedding for us.
How did you personalize your wedding ceremony? We had a theme wedding where everyone was dressed in period costumes like in Lord of the Rings. The ceremony was read in a beautiful, medieval way, and we did some of our vows in faerie language.
Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests? It was the most fun anyone had ever had at a wedding! Every single one of our guests really got into the whole theme because of the costumes and the whole feel of the ceremony. It was like being in a movie and they were all part of it.
Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? Yes, she assured us there would be no surprises in our wedding. She wrote it just the way we wanted.
What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected? Nothing - she wrote our ceremony to reflect our personalities and style and we approved the ceremony before our wedding date. No surprises, thank goodness!
How did you personalize your wedding ceremony? We added a moment of remembrance, had a couple of our family members do readings, and involved our children in a family unity ceremony.
Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests? They said it was wonderful, charming, and not cookie-cutter.
