What a wonderful experience! Rev. Sutton was professional and very easy to working with. On our first meeting,she was very attentive to what we wanted and also gave us options and ideas so we knew where to start. She officiated the ceremony sinserily and perfectly and many of our guests commented on how smoothly it went. Tha k you very much for making our day perfect! :)Sep 15, 2013Rev. Theresa Sutton's reply
All my weddings are special, but Sibo's family came all the way from Zambia. Her colorful gown was made there. The pride with which her father presented her to Ray was so impressive. It was an honor and true privilege to be part of their wedding!
I can only give you second hand accounts of Rev. Sutton's services. But from the reviews and pictures that I've seen on facebook, she has performed some special events, giving special attention to details. One wedding involved an African woman whose family traveled from her country and her American husband. It was the most beautiful picture that I've seen.May 7, 2013Rev. Theresa Sutton's reply
Thank you for taking the time to do a review! I hope someday you can be at one of my weddings! Way too soon for your daughter, my friend!
Theresa made us so comfortable. She was a pleasure to work with. I love how she made our ceremony personal. People thought she had known us for years. Prompt, professional and zero pressure. Thank you!!!!Oct 22, 2013Verified

We met Rev. Sutton after viewing her ad online. She was very prompt, professional and polite. We were anxious being a male couple but she was very non judgmentalputting us at immediate ease. We wrote a few things about each other and she implemented them seamlessly into our ceremony, knowing very little about our personal "jokes". The ceremony was short as we wanted a low-key event; we have been together for 16 years already but wanted to marry since we were given the opportunity. The ceremony was concise and beautiful. We would highly recommend Rev. Sutton for your special moment. Meet her and see if youre a match for her. She was only given 3-weeks notice and she created a ceremony that brought tears of joy to everybody who've witnessed it. Thank you again for making our day special and most meaningful.

The love between Howard and Edward was so comfortable that working up a personal ceremony for them was child's play. At their wedding a sense of love and fun was palpable, they had invited a small group of family and friends. Everyone just seemed to fit like the pieces of a beautiful puzzle. Stories like this are why I have stuck with this business through thick and thin!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First contact is often through one the many wedding listing sites, work of mouth referrals, after that we either meet in person or communicate via phone or emails. If everyone is a good fit, a contract is drawn up to make sure everyone is on the same page. A retainer fee is paid at the signing. Ceremony information is given to the couple and any other assistance they might need is rendered. As the date approaches, they may begin to feel I'm a pest, but I make sure many things are in place so the day will go smoothly.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I guess you could say I was drafted. My daughter and Son-in-law were on a very tight budget when they got married. Well, I took the plunge and got ordained, something I had thought about before. I handled their over the top Celtic had fasting with fire smoke and swords with very little trouble. After studying marriage ceremony traditions and rituals, I began to gift ceremonies to friends and family. As I became more adept and confident I dove into this business of marrying folks. It allows me to write and interact with people from all walks of life. I have married many couples, ordinary folks, TV news anchors, world class athletes, people from around the corner and around the world. I get to meet so many interesting people and be a special part of their big day.
- What types of customers have you worked with?My customers come from all walks of life.TV news reporters, world class professional athletes, young couples, the young at heart, butchers,bakers and candlestick makers quite literally! I truly do cherish the rainbow that my clientele encompasses. Working with couples from around the world has expanded my horizons and helped me to grow as a minister and a person.
