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
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
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.
Nicole and Tom, NH

Nina and Brett, NH

can say! Very kind and caring and more than happy to help in
Samantha and Brian, NH
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.
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
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
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.
Bonnie was very professional and organized. She was also very flexible and the
ceremony was exactly what we were looking for! Excellent job overall!!
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!
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!
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
