Reverend Faith Lavender played an instrumental role in making our wedding ceremony exactly what we wanted; full of love, happiness and laughter. As we started planning the wedding, we weren’t sure where to begin. Faith was there to guide us every step of the way and answer any... Read More and all questions we had. She provided an extensive list of suggestions and helped us both figure out exactly what we were looking for on our very special day. We both answered a questionnaire and she wrote a heartwarming love story that brought tears of joy and lots of laughter to our guests. Faith does an amazing job at creating a ceremony that is perfect for the both of you. Her intelligence, reliability, professionalism, and warming personality make her a pleasure to work with. One of my favorite things about Faith is her ability to make those around her feel calm and stress free. Weddings can be very exciting but also extremely stressful at times. Having Faith there with me during the wedding helped to keep me calm and relaxed. Our closest family and friends continue to send us rave reviews. “Your ceremony was perfect and fitting for the two of you. I laughed, I cried, and I truly enjoyed every moment.” “It was by far the best wedding ceremony I’ve ever attended. The happiness that filled the church was contagious. There wasn’t one guest in the entire church who didn’t have a smile on their face.” “Your loving cup ceremony was fantastic. I’ve never seen anything like it. It was perfect for you!” It was truly our honor to have Reverend Faith Lavender as the officiant for our wedding ceremony on Cape Cod, MA. She went above and beyond to celebrate our love and commitment in a way that captured both of our personalities. We would highly recommend you have some ‘faith’ in Reverend Lavender. We promise she will exceed your expectations in many ways. - Mr. & Mrs. Kolcz ♡

We are so happy we chose Faith as our wedding officiant! She is friendly and kind, passionate about her work, and very responsive to emails (a trait I know most brides deeply appreciate!). Our favorite part about the ceremony that Faith created for us was the love story.... Read More We also liked that we were able to read the ceremony beforehand and make any changes that we wanted. Our family and friends commented to us later that they loved Faith because she was very well-worded and performed a unique and lovely ceremony. Faith will make your wedding ceremony everything you ever wanted! She has a questionnaire to fill out so that she can better understand your vision and so that there is no way you will be disappointed. Faith also gave us a ton of great suggestions (e.g. how to walk down the aisle, when to pause for the photographer, how to carry a tissue around your bouquet, and so many other little things that someone who has never been married before just doesn't think of). I definitely recommend hiring Faith as your wedding officiant and also spending the extra money to have her write your love story and attend your rehearsal :)

Personalized wedding ceremony - perfect wedding!

Reviewed on 9/13/2013 Lorraine B

The most important part of the wedding, in our view, is the ceremony. And we wanted it to reflect us and our sentiments. When we met Rev. Faith for the first time, we knew we had made the right choice. She has a great vibe - is so genuine and warm. We met, discussed our... Read More situation and what type of ceremony we wanted. She sent us a questionnaire that allowed us to share more. Based on this, she wrote a ceremony for us that was spot on - she nailed the exact mood, words and feelings we wanted relayed. It was a perfect "Purple Wedding". She also coached us in advance of the ceremony on ways to make our professional photos even better. Overall, we would highly recommend her - A+++++. She is wonderful!! And she is beautiful inside and out!

Faith was the perfect choice for our wedding officiant. She was warm, organized, and walked us through the whole process. We're so lucky to have had such a beautiful ceremony that we'll always remember. Thank you, Faith!

My husband and I were thrilled to work with Faith. She was so warm and welcome when first meeting with her and walked us through the process effortlessly. Our ceremony was so personal to us and it was evident a lot of thought and passion went into creating it. Our favorite part... Read More was the "love story" add-on, which made me cry! (Luckily, Faith had backup tissues close by). She incorporated actual quotes that my husband and I both had stated about each other and it was just perfect. My guests also loved the "sea glass ritual" where they were able to join in the ceremony and bless their piece of sea glass with a prayer or well wish. I cannot say enough great things about Faith and how special our ceremony was. My best friend who is getting married down the Cape next year is already inquiring to book her! You will not be disappointed. :-)

Faith set such a beautiful space for our ceremony. Her angelic presence and voice brought everyone into the moment. I've never felt so present and grounded. Her guidance and orchestration in the whole process really allowed for our love to flourish and the magic between us to... Read More unfold. If you are looking for a ceremony that is heartfelt and inspirational, a ceremony that touches the heart of everyone in the room then Faith is the one. She was born to do this. We couldn't be more grateful and feel more fulfilled!

My husband and I were so fortunate to have found Faith. From day one we knew we were so lucky. We were looking for someone to make our ceremony meaningful and memorable and it was so much more and we are forever grateful. All of our guests couldn't say enough of how beautiful... Read More the ceremony was and how wonderful she made the ceremony. From day one with her warm greeting we knew she was the one. She took the time to get to know us and walked us through every step creating a ceremony special to us. She was absolutely wonderful. Words can't describe our feelings of how special she was to our day, we can't thank her enough for all that she did.

Faith was such a fantastic officiant! From the first time I talked with her on the phone, I could tell that she was a sweet person and gentle soul. My husband and I met with her at her house to get to know each other and go over the details- there was so much we didn't know... Read More about the process and Faith was so helpful and informative. She provided wonderful options for reading, wedding vows, and ring vows. We would have been so lost without her! She sent us a draft of the ceremony and was open to any suggestions we had before finalizing. The three of us talked on the phone the week of the wedding and she gave some important tips- like looking at each other during the ceremony and not at her the whole time! Faith even coordinated her outfit around the wedding colors to complement the color scheme. I was a total nervous nelly for the wedding but Faith did a great job keeping me calm. We received SO MANY compliments on the ceremony, - Faith added a lot of personal touches to it. Everyone was saying how it was the best ceremony they've been to! My 89 year old grandpa told me that it was so great, he might even want to get married again :) After the ceremony, Faith dropped off our vow cards (great momento!) and a lovely certificate in our card box- so sweet! My only regret is that we can't do it all over again!

We cannot thank Faith enough for the beautiful ceremony that she gave us! It was exactly what we wanted in that was light-hearted yet intimate. She took the time to meet with us in order to get to know us and make sure that she personalized our ceremony. She portrayed our love... Read More story in a way that fit us perfectly! She was really able to make it our own and did not appear as if she was just reusing some other couple’s ceremony. We have received so many compliments from our guests about the ceremony.

Faith was such a sweetheart and a pleasure to work with during our wedding! She was very responsive via email which was very helpful during working hours. We had an initial phone call with her, and just met with her at her home twice before the big day. She provided a stand and... Read More microphone for us so that our guests could hear us during our outdoor ceremony. Throughout the whole process she listened to exactly what we wanted to do during our ceremony and offered suggestions when asked. We wanted to have a interfaith ceremony, I am Catholic and my husband is Jewish. Both of us wanted to give a nod to our religious backgrounds but wanted to make our ceremony more about our love and commitment to each other. She also included a bit of humor into the ceremony as well and made the entire ceremony personalized just for us. Everyone commented on how perfect our ceremony was and our engaged friends specifically mentioned that they want their ceremony to be just like ours. If you are getting married in Cape Cod you must use Faith!
