Hi Rab! Yes - we are (pretty much)
settled in - - there is still so much
John and I talked about it and both
of us agree that if we had to go back
and do it all over again, we wouldn't
change a thing (EXCEPT that we would have
more time to take off for a honeymoon
I think everything was perfect including
having you as our officiant!
I really appreciate your calmness,
openness and willing to let us just be
us!!! I was incredibly comfortable with
you and that meant alot to me! Thank you
was the best decision we made for our wedding.
After our initial meeting with her she drafted
our entire ceremony, and it could not have
been more perfect. She completely connected
with us and expressed our vows in a way
that I felt came straight from our hearts.
We met with her a second time to do a togetherness
survey that brought all of us closer together.
Susan sat with us and talked about our strengths
and opportunities as a couple. I think that
meeting brought Alan and I to a whole new
level of understanding each other. The ceremony
was my favorite part of the whole wedding.
From rehearsal to wedding day we trusted
her leadership and knowledge and it all
came together wonderfully. We received compliment
after compliment from numerous guests, saying
it was the most beautiful ceremony they
had ever been to. We couldn't agree more.
Susan has become more than our officiant,
but also a guiding spirit and friend.

Hello Rab! Nice to get an email! :)
We're doing great! We're finally settled
in Phoenix.. Man is it HOT!
I've been meaning to send you some
pictures, I'll probably send them to you
next week when we get our internet set
up. Brien and I were very pleased with
how personal you were with us. The ceremony
was absolutely perfect and I couldn't
have been as happy with anyone else marrying
us! No complaints here at all, keep up
the good work! Thanks again!

Marriage Makers and Susan Chicovsky
helped make our wedding ceremony both
unique and special for my husband and
me. Marriage Makers offered us a forum
to find a wedding officiant that suited
the type of ceremony we wanted and Susan's
warmth and sincerity made the whole experience
a pleasure. She helped us create a beautiful
ceremony that expressed exactly what my
husband and I wanted to say to each other
on the day we became husband and wife.
Susan's wonderful spirit and sense of
humor made our wedding ceremony very special
for both us and our guests. We loved our
experience with Susan and with Marriage
Makers and would strongly recommend them
to any couples looking for an officiant.
Thank you, Susan!

David and I were both very happy with
the ceremony you performed for us. We
thought that having a collaborative approach
to writing our ceremony made it very easy
to have our feelings expressed in a format
that was appropriate for a wedding ceremony.
Thank you for your efforts and support!!
My father took the copy of our wedding
prayers, folded it, put it in his pocket,
and commented, I'm keeping this. I'll
remind you if you forget what you promised.
You guys said all the right things!
Kathleen and David
We loved everything you did for us,
with the counseling and with the ceremony.
We can't think of a single thing we would
have changed. We will recommend you to
friends. Thanks so much for participating
in our wedding, it was fabulous and unforgettable!

Rich and I first moved to Colorado from
Chicago after our engagement, we were
very concerned about finding someone we
trusted and connected with to marry us.
We found Susan by chance and met with
her in her lovely and welcoming home.
We connected with her immediately and
felt like we could talk with her for hours.
She really got us and what we wanted and
after our first meeting, she drafted our
vows and they were absolutely perfect.
Just from meeting us one time, she knew
us enough to write the most beautiful
words we could ever imagine to be read
at our wedding. She was always quick and
precise and was such a calming force at
our rehearsal dinner. She made everything
seem effortless and fun and reminded us
that the wedding is about us. On the day
of the wedding, she was so graceful and
at ease, you couldn't help but just be
excited and not worry. Since the ceremony,
I have had individual sessions with her
and plan on sustaining a relationship
with her for years to come."

Marriage Makers - Rab Freeman -- A+++++
We both fell a little in love with
our officiant Rab Freeman. She runs Marriage
Makers and that was one of the best choices
se made. She was open to our ideas (and
some of ours were wacky), she reminded
us over and over that it was our wedding
not our parents', friends', families',
etc. She did some light pre-wedding counseling.
And she is a tough cookie with a soft
heart. Our rehearsal day was atrocious
and she took us aside separately and said
and did all the right things. She was
like mother, friend and fairy godmother
all rolled into one. We want to get married
again just so we can spend more time with
Dear Kathleen: At first, Mary & I
thought that our officiant would be a
figurehead, someone who didn't really
mean anything, but who we had to have
there. But then we met you. Both the ceremony
you prepared and your presentation of
it, truly enhanced our wedding, and we
are both deeply grateful for the care
you brought to it. Thank you so much for
all your care. You made our wedding feel
Love Sam & Mary
Dear Kathleen: I told you the day of the
wedding how beautiful the ceremony
was, but once again after being able to
read and linger on the words I am
truly moved. Jane Anne and Kevin did well
in choosing you to perform their
bonds. Thank you for your lovely words.
I told Jane Anne and Kevin any
time they were angry with each other,
to read these words again. I will
even incorporate them into my life. Thank
you for making this such a beautiful day.
Patsy I Rieger (mother of the bride)
Dear Kathleen: Thank you for making
our wedding so wonderful. Your energy
and spirit was felt by all.
Love, Linda & Rick
