Reverend Rudd made us super comfortable! She reminded us that this was OUR day and we could have it any way we wanted and she would help us to make it that way. She was very easy to talk to and answered all of our questions.
She actually stood to the side by our audience so that we could turn and face the people there to see it. It was great! Our guests didn't have to look at our backs. We had several people comment that it was nice to see us and our reactions.
We added and family sand ceremony because both my husband and I have kids from previous relationships. It was beautiful!
Again, they loved that we were turned around so that they could see our faces and not our backs. Some said it made the ceremony more personal and they felt like they we apart of it.
Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? The Reverend did a wonderful job at tailoring the ceremony to the needs of my husband and I. We really wanted a more spiritual versus religious ceremony and she was able to accomodate that. She offered counsel before and after the ceremony, which really gave us an opportunity to bond with her. I could not have asked for a more perfect day.
What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected? My father passed away several years ago, so in memory of him my mother lit a candle in his honor. Reverend Rudd knew the importance of this, so she took it upon herself to read a poem as my mother walked to the podium. I am forever indebted...
How did you personalize your wedding ceremony? I personalized my ceremony by bringing a compilation of vows that were a reflection of the love my husband and I have. Rev. Rudd was instrumental in making this day unique and memorable.
Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests? My guests were skeptical in the beginning due to the wedding not being conducted in a church. At the completion of my ceremony each person expressed their pleasure with Rev. Rudd's performance. A few individuals even followed-up on vow renewal ceremonies with her.
Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? Rev. Rudd made us very comfortable. It was a first wedding for the both of us and we had no idea what to do or expect. She walked us through every step and helped us create a beautiful ceremony that complimented the both of us.
What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected? Our own personal touches. She made sure that everything was about us!
How did you personalize your wedding ceremony? We were able to find things on our own and in the things she provided and cut and paste what we wanted. It was really great!
Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests? They loved how unique it was. Most said they had never been to a ceremony like it.
