About this Vendor

Unique and Memorable Ceremonies in Central Pa.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! I believe the ceremony should set the stage for the rest of the day and your ceremony should be about the couple. Every ceremony I officiate is based on meetings (in person, phone or skype) with the couple so that the ceremony reflects THEIR personalities. Whether it be a civil/non-religious but romantic wedding in the park, a fun and theatrical handfasting at midnight, a traditional, religious ceremony in a church or a more elaborate blending of religions and cultures...I’ve written, officiated over and loved them all. Contact me today to discuss your ceremony and to check on the availability of your date. LEGALLY ORDAINED, ALL FAITH MINISTER

Rev Reenie was able to put together the perfect ceremony for our wedding. We wanted something that would be light and fun (no tears!), but still sweet and heartfelt, and she delivered! We met with her a couple times, and she was able to recommend some excellent readings for us... Read More to choose from, and helped us come up with a ceremony that fit us so well! We received so many compliments from guests afterwards about how much they enjoyed the ceremony and Reenie’s personality. We couldn’t be happier with the way everything worked out. I am usually terrible at making it through any wedding without crying, but Reenie kept us smiling through the whole thing, and even laughing at some parts. It set the tone for the rest of the day: stress-free and happy!

Reenie was amazing!!!! From the moment we first spoke to Reenie on the phone, we knew that she would be perfect for our wedding. She is so personable and put us at ease about everything immediately. We had told her that we wanted our ceremony to be about love, and upon... Read More reading the first draft, my eyes welled up - it was surely about love and so perfect. We told Reenie about how our love story started, as well as some inside jokes, and she incorporated everything into the ceremony in the most perfect way ever. Almost everyone who attended our ceremony was brought to tears of happiness and we are still hearing from our guests about how awesome our officiant was. We want to re-live the ceremony over and over again because it was the best moment of our lives and we cannot thank Reenie enough her part in that!

We planned our entire wedding from out of town and relied a lot of these type of reviews. We booked Reenie as she was super helpful with answering questions about getting a marriage license in PA (3 day waiting period is annoying, marriages officiated by friends arent... Read More necessarily legal in PA, etc). She was super easy to talk to, and we communicated almost solely via email. She was incredibly prompt with all my (many) questions, and very sweet. We met her at our rehearsal, and she married us the next day, and she managed to make it so personal and sweet, and made the entire thing so laid back for us (non-religious folk), even while making the ceremony spiritual, pleasing the groom's religious dad. We absolutely loved Reenie and after the fact later that night, we kinda looked at each other, and said, wow Reenie was great though wasnt she? (that really did happen.) Highly recommend her. Thanks Reenie!

What I am so grateful to be able to say about Irene "Reenie" Panzini is that not only did I get a wonderful, kind, supportive officiant for my wedding, but I also got a friend in the process! That's how awesome she is. I had never known her before Eric and I chose her for our... Read More officiant, but I am so very glad I met her. Eric and I were married 7 years ago, and I continue to be friends with Reenie. She is a treasure. Reenie is funny, kind, and wise. She is accepting and supportive of all religions and lifestyles, and is just an altogether loving soul. She accommodated all of my choices in the ceremony. She gave us all kinds of ideas as well, like including a hand-binding ceremony, which was gorgeous and such a wonderful memory. And she was so supportive of our quirkiness, including saying "May the force be with you" in honor of my dad, who passed away a few years before my wedding and who loved saying things like that. My wedding ceremony was beautiful, and EVEN ALL OF THESE YEARS LATER, I still get compliments on how personalized and fun the ceremony was. My husband and I do not have a specific religion, but are open to different beliefs. Irene's ceremony was respectful of our (very undefined) beliefs. She can cater to whatever your needs are in terms of religion. I literally had people coming up to me several times during the reception to say that our ceremony was the best they had ever been to - to quote one guest, he was "on the edge of his seat". Irene is so AWESOME!

I cannot express in words how fantastic Reenie was officiating our wedding. My husband and I chose Reenie after asking our vendor to recommend someone who would help make our ceremony a true reflection of us as a couple. Reenie was the first name uttered and I can, without a... Read More doubt say, I understand why. The best way to put it is Reenie seemed to know my now husband and I better than we even knew ourselves in terms of the ceremony. Without making our meetings feel like interrogations, we sat in a coffee shop talking, about life, our past and everything in between. Reenie was able to the reflect us in the ceremony she created. It felt like us! Looking back I couldn't imagine doing any of it without Reenie! I now consider her a friend.
