Rev. Reenie Panzini at Susquehanna Ceremonies

Lancaster / Central Pennsylvania and Surrounding Area

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

We LOVE Reenie!

Reviewed on 10/26/2015 Abby F

We knew Reenie was going to be our wedding officiant from the second we met her at a little coffee shop in Lancaster. We sat and chatted with her for almost 2 hours about not only wedding, but life - what we do in our free time, details about our family, our friends, the list... Read More continues. Reenie is not your typical officiant. It feels as though she has known you for years and has a very warm presence about her. I truly enjoyed both of our meetings with her - and couldn't wait for her to be a part of our big day! When she arrived to our wedding - my face lit up - I was SO happy to see her. Our guests are still talking about how lovely she was and how much they enjoyed the ceremony she created for us. She incorporated things about my husband and I and really took the time to weave it into the theme of the day. She took command of the room with her strong presence and made our ceremony absolutely perfect! If you are looking for an officiant, look no further, Reenie is your gal!!!!

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.


Loved Reenie!

Reenie did an amazing job for us! We were so pleased with the ceremony and couldn't have been any happier! Before the wedding, I took some time write up a short summary of our relationship, our history, and our personalities. She tailored the ceremony perfectly to fit our style... Read More and even included inside jokes which helped make it even more personal. Reenie was dressed appropriately and was prompt on her timeliness. When performing the rehearsal and the actual ceremony she was efficient and made sure everyone in the wedding knew what they were doing and made them feel comfortable. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is planning a wedding!

Reenie was a life saver! My husband and I wanted our best friend to marry us, but we wanted to be sure that there was no question that it was legal. Reenie came to our rescue!

Reenie officiated our September 6th wedding at the Landis Valley Museum. She was such a pleasure to work with. She made the process fun and about what was important to us. I would recommend her to everyone! I'm so glad we chose her to participate in our very special day.

Reenie was a pleasure to work with on every occasion we've needed her. We didn't want a traditional church wedding with lots of scripture reading. Reenie took the time to get to know us and what our marriage meant to us, and then was able to provide meaningful readings and... Read More create a truly perfect ceremony. She even included our son which meant a lot to us. She even performed a Salt Covenant for us because she didn't want to do a traditional union ceremony. She had great communication skills throughout our long engagement and often sent us things she came across if she thought they fit us. Whether for a wedding or an elopement, a traditional or non traditional wedding, Reenie has you covered. I'd highly recommend her:)

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!

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!

Reenie is the absolute best! My husband and I could not have been more happy to have Reenie officiate our wedding! She went above and beyond for us on numerous occasions!
