Bonnie McCarthy was great! She made changes to the service based on our idea's and theme. She drove out of her way to meet with us. We live in Nashua, but we were having the ceremony in Rindge, NH. She was very responsive to E-mails and on the phone. After the rehearsal I felt so much more calm about the wedding. Her confidence helped put my mind at ease. The ceremony was beautiful! The Unity Flower ceremony that she does is such a great idea for outdoor weddings! This saves the embarrassment of having the candle blow out if a breeze picks up.

Lauren and David, NH

Thank you so much for being part of our wedding. Your smile and kindness added joy to our special day. Jay and I, as well as all of our guests, felt the ceremony was thoughtful and beautiful.

Sandy and Jay, NH

We are extremely happy and thank you sooo much....our lives have just begun, and you made it all possible. Thank you again!

Jenna and Matt, NH

You came in when we needed you, and we are so thankful and grateful you agreed to fill in for our original minister. The ceremony she wrote means so much to us, and it was amazing that you felt we were worth driving the long distance from NH to CT to deliver it. You saved us when we really needed it, and we can not thank your enough.

April and Jon, CT

Bonnie was fantastic. She helped us design our ceremony when we had no idea of what to do. Bonnie was very flexible and easy to get in touch with. She made our ceremony beautiful but also short and sweet...just how we wanted it. She even made us a little book as a keepsake. She such a sweet and wonderful person and we couldn't imagine anyone else performing our ceremony.

Bonnie did an excellent job and we were very happy to have her, our guests told us what a nice job she did too. She was even able to meet with us before the wedding closer to our home then hers which was nice. Thanks for everything Bonnie!

Tammy and Shaun, NH

Bonnie was amazing to work with. She is very organized and responsive. We were able to create our vows over the phone and through e-mails, which was perfect for my busy schedule. She was able to create a wedding ceremony that was exactly what my new husband and I wanted. The ceremony was heartfelt and sincere. I had many compliments from my guests about how lovely the ceremony was and that they were truly touched by the message. I truly recommend Ceremonies from the Heart.

Sandy and Jay, NH

Rev. McCarthy was a caring, respectful, flexible and professional officiant. She was readily available via phone and email, tailored our ceremony to our exact tastes and provided a very professional rehearsal and touching ceremony. We would recommend her to anyone in search of an officiant for their big day.

Winter and Keith, NH

Our wedding ceremony could not have been more perfect for us!! Rev. McCarthy met with us, asked insightful questions, made excellent suggestions and then together we prepared an extremely beautiful and meaningful ceremony. The scores above reflect our total satisfaction and pleasure of working with Rev. McCarthy.

Peg and Karl, NH

As two women celebrating New Hampshire's recent enactment of same-sex marriage, we were a little nervous about finding the right person to perform our ceremony. Bonnie was professional and receptive to all of our special requests. We had a very small ceremony at our home and our friends and family agreed that she was wonderful. She made everyone feel comfortable and we enjoyed spending time with her after the service. We couldn't recommend her more highly!

Tracy & Julie, NH

Bonnie was a fantastic part of our special day. She is friendly, courteous and attentive; she worked hard to make our ceremony truly special, unique and touching. She truly did work with us to build a ceremony that was from the heart; we cannot recommend her highly enough! Thank you Bonnie!

Kate and Mike, NH

Bonnie was really great to work with as we were planning our ceremony. She was very flexible in relation to what we wanted (and didn't want) and provided helpful suggestions. Bonnie is very open, welcoming, personable and inclusive - we couldn't have wished for a better officiant!!! We highly recommend contacting Bonnie about your ceremony - you won't be disappointed!

Lisa and John, NH

Bonnie did so incredibly well for me and my husband. She was extremely responsive to all of our requests and changes. My husband is active duty military so planning a wedding was challenging at times, and Bonnie was very helpful and willing to do whatever she could to help us out. The ceremony was perfect, absolutely beautiful and having Bonnie be there was such a blessing. I would recommend Bonnie to anyone who is looking for some one to do their wedding. She was absolutely wonderful and my husband and I are forever grateful. Thank you so much Bonnie, words can't even describe how thankful I am.

Kristin, NH

We are so glad John and Janet recommended you to us! From the moment we met you we knew we picked the right person to marry us! Throughout the entire process you never ceased to amaze us. Whether it was the great job you did on the vows, searching for the church before the wedding day, or calling the church caretaker to make sure it would be unlocked on time. Your organization and humor helped us keep it together on a stressful day. Thank you so much for helping to make our day special.

 Melinda and Joe, NH

We wanted to take another moment to thank you for marrying us. It was a beautiful exchange and we couldn’t be more happy! Thank you for making the process fun, meaningful and enjoyable for us.

Andrea and Anthony, MA

Thank you so much for your dedication towards making our big day just right. The effort and positive energy you put forth in our vows booklet,, and in climbing the mountain [Ascutney] is really appreciated. It was truly and "Extreme Wedding Ceremony."

 Mark and Pam, VT

I want to thank you so much for making Jenn and Gif's day perfect. I truly believe it was meant to be that you would be the one to perform their ceremony after the first minister backed out because Jen and Gif wanted to help write their ceremony. You were just the kind of caring, open-minded person they were looking for.

Linda (Mother of the bride), NH

Martin and I would like to thank you for all of your care and hard work in helping to make our spiritual wedding both special and perfect. We feel so fortunate to have found you, and are equally pleased that you played such an important role in our wedding. Please don't ever forget us as we'll always remember you as our wonderful motorcycle riding reverend.

Rochelle and Martin, NH

Thank you very much for all of the time you spent preparing for our wedding. Your flexibility and wonderful ideas made creating our ceremony fun and memorable. We are blessed to have someone wonderful like you marry us!

Lori and Dave, NH

My husband and I were legally married in Lebanon, the country of his birth and where the majority of his family lives. My family was unable to attend the overseas ceremony, so it was important that we find a way to also honor the significance of this milestone in our lives with my family and our friends who live here as well. As the details of our stateside celebration came together, we felt it would be meaningful to include my family and our friends in a civil ceremony that confirmed our commitment for one another.

We discovered Bonnie and her services through a recommendation and could not have been more pleased with her efforts to customize the ceremony to suit our needs and taste. In the relatively short time we were in contact with one another prior to the ceremony, she collected enough information to suggest a ceremony program that flowed naturally and beautifully from start to finish.

Bonnie recognized the value of our two families coming together through the symbolism of a flower ceremony. This was a meaningful component of our ceremony as it allowed us to acknowledge our two families who had never met and could not be present at the same ceremony to honor our commitment together. We also factored in a reading of a poem about love, read by a close friend of mine.

Finally, we had to opportunity to draft our own vows and read them aloud to one another in the presence of our friends and my family which was a special component as well.

Bonnie very thoughtfully collected the thoughts, insights and prayers recited at our ceremony into a keepsake book which is a treasure I hold close to my heart. Bonnie's services as an officiant at our family ceremony went above and beyond what I could have expected. She is a deeply spiritual person, without preaching the teachings of just one version of Christianity or any other faith, her background and training allows for a deep appreciation and insight into the core values of what brings couples together. Bonnie has the unique gift of bringing couples together in the presence of family and friends and uniting them in the warmest, most loving and beautiful way possible with the presence of her words, prayers and insights that come from her passion to serve in this capacity as well as her years of training and practice. I would recommend her services to anyone who is interested in having a ceremony from the heart.

Karin, AZ

Bonnie was very professional and organized. She was also very flexible and the ceremony was exactly what we were looking for! Excellent job overall!!

Kelly, NH

 Bonnie was awesome! She was very flexible in meeting with us and accommodating our rehearsal time! I would recommend her to anyone having their wedding at the Shattuck Golf Club!

Holly, NC

Bonnie was absolutely wonderful! She was not only very professional, friendly and flexible with our planning, but she also wrote a beautiful ceremony that helped make our unique wedding very special. We highly recommend "Ceremonies from the Heart" because it truly was!

Andrea, NH

We want to say thank you for everything. The ceremony was wonderful, and thank you for making the last minute switch for the poem. Everything was great despite the weather.
