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 :)

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 did such a fantastic job. We received SO many compliments on our ceremony, and her specifically! From her thoughtfully chosen words to the tone of her voice, she set an amazing tone for the rest of the day and our guests were really impressed. Ceremonies are often glanced... Read More over for the "party" most people are focused on, but she made our ceremony so special and memorable to us and our guests. Even weeks later, I still get comments about the ceremony. She is sincere and will take the time to get to know you as a couple so she can share personal stories and anecdotes. It really makes a difference. We are so grateful to have chosen her for our day.

My husband and I worked with Faith for our wedding last month. She was amazing to work with every step of the way, and was so organized. We wanted to do a non-religious ceremony, and she had so many good ideas about how to go about that. Because we got married in the cape...

Faith was amazing! She definitely has you do your "homework" but it makes your ceremony so personal and great. We chose the "love story" ceremony. - What I mean by homework is Faith wants to know you and your spouse very well (how you met, what you love about each other, funny... Read More stories, etc.). Our guests came up to us many times to compliment our ceremony and asked how we knew Faith and if she was a family member - that is how intimate the ceremony was! A+ work to Faith. She is dedicated and wonderful and our ceremony was PERFECT.

REv. Scott married us on 6-10-17! He did An amazing job! My fiancé (now husband) had a bit of nerves prior to our ceremony and Rev Scott helped him calm his nerves and get him through the day.

I can't say enough good things! He was very informative and helpful finding the perfect vows and readings! I do not do well public speaking or standing in front of 170 people and we could not have done it without him! He made the whole process stress free and perfect!!!

THANK YOU, Rev. Faith, for creating such a personal, unique, and touching ceremony for us! Rev. Faith came highly recommended to me from my wedding planner because I was looking for a personalized ceremony that would tell the story of us as a couple. Faith was incredibly... Read More professional, thorough, organized and easy to communicate with from start to finish. Even though we spoke through phone calls, she was spot on with her delivery of our story. We were very involved in selecting the components, flow, and overall mood of the ceremony, and her delivery of it all was calming and yet powerful. She had great suggestions on how to keep the audience engaged with every aspect of the ceremony. Friends and family commented on how unique and personalized it was. Thanks again for making the most special moment of our lives truly one of a kind!!

We loved our ceremony and Faith! We loved that we got to see a draft of it and make edits, and were so glad we did the extra package with the love story. Ours is very unique so it was nice to have that in there. The only small criticism I have is that if you are an early planner... Read More like me, you may get a bit anxious to not have the ceremony finalized until the week of. Luckily I had plenty of time because I did everything else so early, but I can't even imagine being a DIY bride making things yourself and worrying about setting everything up yourself etc and trying to go through the ceremony. Overall we loved Faith and our ceremony! Many of our friends said it was the best ceremony they've ever been to!

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 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!
