Rev. Sandy Bearden did a wonderful job with our wedding! She has a very helpful and very thorough ceremony booklet that lets you completely personalize your wedding if you so choose. My husband and I did and I have heard from so many guests that our wedding was the most intimate and personal ceremony they had ever attended. There wasn't a dry eye in the house! She will answer any questions and help you out every step of the way. You cannot go wrong by choosing Weddings by Sandy!

We used Bruce with Weddings by Sandy as our officiant and we were so happy that we did! Bruce really cared about us and made the extra effort to make sure we were completely happy with the service and his efforts were very much appreciated. Since the ceremony was really the one area that we needed lots of feedback on, it was great to have a resource that we could trust and count on if we needed it. He was professional and we were impressed with the way the ceremony unfolded. Thank you Bruce!

Sandy Queen was my officiant for my wedding and I absolutely love her! She is so friendly and supportive and my ceremony went beautifully! She was there for me from start to finish helping me plan my ceremony. The rehearsal went smoothly and on my wedding day she came out to the venue early to make sure everything was set up the way we wanted it. I could not have asked for a better person to officate our wedding and I would highly recommend her! My friends and family told me how much they loved her and wanted to book her for their weddings!

Sandy Bearden was our partner from the start. She provided us with a handbook packed full of resources and samples. Sandy gave guidance on the flow of our ceremony, including how best to acknowledge my deceased mother. She also provided feedback and guidance as we wrote our own vows. Sandy was invaluable in helping us plan the enchanting ceremony we wanted. During the rehearsal, Sandy was about business but allowed our wedding party to have some fun as we ran through the process several times to ensure we had it right. Since our wedding, we've had several of our married guests say they wished Sandy had performed there wedding ceremony.

We are highly satisfied with using Sandy as our wedding officiant. She has a lot of really creative ideas for the ceremony and is good at listening to the couple. She did exactly what she said she would and showed up early to the ceremony. Afterwards she gave us a book to keep of our vows. She spoke very well too and had our audience captured which we had hoped for as the laughed and cried and participated following her lead. We were very happy with her services.

Sandy did a great job at our wedding - hands down. She wasnt corny or boring - she is delightful to work with.

Absolutely perfect. Not only was Rev Sandy extremely accommodating for a couple planning their wedding from out of town, but she crafted a beautiful ceremony for us and made sure it went over smoothly. She was completely in control of all details and ensured that everything went exactly how we had envisioned. Having someone who REALLY knows what she is doing that you can REALLY trust is huge for a bride. Also, both my husband and I really loved the fact that she is truly a wealth of information when it comes to weddings and ceremonies. She has an enormous amount of information on every type of ceremony you can think of - so you can basically read through with your sig other and choose rituals or passages that you both like. I am typically picky and never give 5 out of 5's...but in this case, I would give a 10 if I could. Thank you, Rev Sandy!!

Sandy Queen was our officiant and she was wonderful! Right from our first meeting with her we knew she was the perfect fit for our non-denominational ceremony. Sandy was so helpful in providing us with everything we needed to write the ceremony and she was incredibly responsive in the months leading up to the big day. The ceremony was beautiful and we heard nothing but positive comments from our guests. Thank you Sandy for making our wedding wonderful!

There are not enough words to express my gratitude to Sandy in the months leading up to our wedding, but even moreso in the days leading up to the wedding day and on the day of. Sandy was a sounding board, an ear to vent to, a friend, and on the wedding day, and lackey! Sandy genuinely cares about her brides and their fiance's. I planned our wedding from out of state and met Sandy in passing a month before the wedding and didn't meet her again until the rehearsal. But to be honest with you, I felt like I'd known her my entire life. She was so incredibly accomodating to my husband and I. One night she called me, and I was in tear's because my dog had just had surgery, and she sat and talked to me until I was calm.. Nowhere in the contract we signed did it say that she needed to do that! I also had Sandy print my programs for me and they were perfect! When I thought that portions of the ceremony might need to be changed at the last minute, she was completely willing to do whatever needed to be done. When I told her I had no one to pick up my flowers the day of the wedding, she graciously agreed to do so, and then return the pillars the next day. When I called her two days before the wedding freaking out because our groomsmen were driving me nuts, my mother-in-law suddenly wasn't coming, and people were backing out at the last minute, she let me vent, and then told me, "You can call me anytime between now and the ceremony to vent or cry or scream. But whatever you do, don't take it out on Mike! (my fiance)". That was so comforting. Sandy was there the day of the wedding before I was. She made sure that everything was perfect, since I was sequestered in the dressing room away from my groom. She held onto the wedding rings so that the ring bearer didn't lose them. She made sure everyone had their flowers. She made sure the flowers were at the alter. She helped my junior bridesmaid hot glue her sandals more than once. And more than anything, she kept me calm. I had so many compliments about how amazing Sandy was that day. Even for my very traditional Catholic family who was orginally skeptical about being married by a non-denominational female officiant, outside, on a golf course, they were won over by Sandy and her professionalism and compassion. I would recommend her to anyone!!!!

Sandy did a wonderful job with our ceremony. If you use her company, be sure you request her. The woman that was sent, in her place, for our rehearsal, was awful! No sense of humor, no allowance for fun. Sandy however was delightful. Her book of ceremony ideas is huge and if she does not have something she will go and find it for you!
