I can’t recommend Susan enough. Due to COVID 19 we had to replan everything we thought we would have. I contacted Susan fairly last minute and she was so kind and helpful. She helped us still pull off an amazing day.

Susan Lee-Wright... not sure I have enough words to express how absolutely wonderful she is. Two days before the wedding we had to move everything up an hour, Rev. Susan was not only accommodating but did so seemingly effortlessly. She kept us calm and excited at the same time. She was very flexible and even when I was delayed in communication, she was beyond helpful.
As for The Big Day!:
We didn’t want the “typical “ wedding ceremony, but I also didn’t want it to be tooo long that the message was lost in a wordy reading… (also, high heels lol). Rev. Susan made the ceremony one of my dreams. Actually, I could have never dreamt of such a special, meaningful, emotional & hopeful ceremony. There was a pause for deep breaths, which let’s be real, in 2020, we need these things. She helped us put into words how we already felt about one another. She is: A miracle worker!, kind, patient, loving and one supper funny Rev.! Everyone cried and laughed. All who were there said it was the most special ceremony they had ever witnessed. I am truly amazed. I will never forget our ceremony. She helped us both feel like the most fortunate humans in the universe. For that reason alone, I would truly recommend Rev. Susan Lee Wright. I am unable to adequately describe how we felt -but I bet Rev. Susan can help find the words for me ;). So grateful! 💕✨

During our first phone conversation, Susan was very patient with us (we had absolutely no clue about what to do for a wedding ceremony!) She certainly know what she was asking; I was surprise when she asked me about the tea ceremony, which is a wedding tradition in Chinese culture! All the details about fees and charges were transparent to us (nothing hidden, which I like!); she explained thoroughly about the differences between the packages that we were interested in. Another thing I like about is the list of flow/order that she prepared for us (based on our likings), and all the useful suggestions and honest advices throughout the preparation period. She was prompt in response too! On my wedding day, Susan took an initiative to help coordinate and talked to everybody; making sure the flow of event went through perfectly. Oh yea, her voice was very soothing to ears! My husband and family were very happy with her and her service; all my close friends told me the ceremony was very well organized.

We hired her to be our officiant on the day of, as well as for premarital counseling- and we were sooo thankful that we did. We have both been in couples counseling before and Susan’s approach was unlike anything we had previously experienced. She took time to get to know both of us and also helped us see our relationship together in new and exciting ways. It felt like she understood us in more ways than we even understood each other. She was so positive and a true breath of fresh air in a time that was pretty overwhelming. It really felt like we were working with a family member anytime we spoke, her ability to connect with us individually yet also maintain the level of professionalism needed to help us navigate all of the moving pieces on our wedding day was so special for us. Before I get too sappy let me just say that both my husband and myself feel incredibly grateful that Susan came into our lives when she did. She helped us stay focused on our love and connection with one another-when in the midst of wedding planning and life in general that isn’t always an easy feat.

Susan’s guidance and the help of Priest Jignesh from the Hindu Temple of Minnesota, we crafted a 1 hour ceremony that was a unique and beautiful expression of both me and my husband’s cultural and religious backgrounds. The number one piece of feedback we received from our guests was how special our ceremony was, and we couldn’t have agreed more. Rev. Susan was extremely responsive via email and flexible in scheduling meetings. We live in Chicago, and Rev. Susan was always willing to meet via Skype or work with our limited windows of availability when we were in MN. The day of our rehearsal, Rev. Susan was instrumental in keeping everyone on track and made sure that members of our wedding party who could not attend the rehearsal still knew what was going on. I cannot say enough good things about working with Rev. Susan and would recommend her to anyone, particularly those putting together a fusion ceremony.

Reviewed on The Knot:  We used Perfect Day Ceremonies for our ceremony this past weekend and it was amazing! Susan was very helpful and wonderful. She helped us through planning the whole ceremony and made it very personalized. She did a great job performing our ceremony and was very sincere! We highly recommend Perfect day ceremonies!

Megan & Nick ~ October 17th, 2015

Reviewed on The Knot: My husband and I decided to have our September 5th wedding ceremony and reception at the same location. This led us into the situation of having to choose an officiant. Perfect Day Ceremonies was referred to us by our wedding planner, and working with Susan was one of the best decisions we made! From our first meeting, she made us feel completely at ease. Susan really took the time to get to know us and our own personal love story, and created a beautiful custom wedding message for the ceremony. We received so many compliments about how wonderful everything about the ceremony was. She also has a great eye for detail – everything was coordinated from the aisle runner to the music ques! She makes it her priority to make sure the ceremony goes off without a hitch. I would recommend Rev. Susan Lee Wright to everyone looking for an officiant!

Laura & Jason ~ September 5th, 2015

After meeting with Susan the first time we knew that we wanted to use her as our officiant. We both loved the fact that we were able to go through the many options she provided and customize our ceremony to our liking. We were fortunate to have Susan available to officiate our ceremony. She did a wonderful job both with the rehearsal in the hours ahead of the ceremony and the ceremony itself.

Caitlin & Michael ~ May 9th, 2015


Thank you for helping us to make our wedding celebration a day we’ll always remember!  Everything was wonderful and we appreciate your efforts!

In deepest gratitude,

Jason & Craig ~ February 7th, 2015

Reviewed on Wedding Wire:  We used Susan for our Pre-Marital counseling, and to officiate our wedding in December. She was so easy to work with, and got back to me very quickly with any question I had. She was so professional, and directed everyone the day of. The best part was all the compliments I received on how beautiful the ceremony was, and how everyone loved how personal it was. Several people came up to me after and thought Susan was just wonderful. Thank you Susan for making our day so special!

Erin & Mike ~ December 13th, 2014

Dear Susan, How blessed we both feel to have found you! Your ability to take our love story and turn that into a beautiful wedding ceremony is truly a gift. Thanks for your encouragement and support through our journey to marriage.

We wanted to thank you for being part of our “Perfect Day”! The whole process was pleasant and memorable and most of all STRESS FREE!! We truly enjoyed the day and will call on you again when the “time” comes!

Reviewed on The Knot:  We were extremely lucky to be able to work with Susan for a perfect ceremony. She took the time to meet with us and get to know us which allowed her to come up with a ceremony that met our needs and reflected who we are. We would use her again in the future for a dedication or any other service. Highly recommend!

Mark & Jacque ~ August 23rd, 2013

Susan, Thank you for your services. You made our day come together just as we imagined. You are wonderful!

Rev. Susan,
Thank you so much for such a wonderful ceremony – it was exactly what we wanted and we appreciated it more than we can say! Thank you also for the beautiful South African candles, they were very thoughtful of you (we are planning on lighting them to celebrate our 1st anniversary).

Christopher & Melissa, Cambridge, Minnesota

Rev. Susan,
We are so pleased with how our wedding ceremony turned out and cannot thank you enough for making it such a special day for us! You have such a patient and kind heart and a beautiful voice. You provided us with such excellent service above and beyond your duties, we will recommend you to all of our family and friends!

Tyler & Alicia, Minneapolis, Minnesota

Rev. Susan,
Charlie and I wanted to thank you again for officiating our ceremony. It was very important to us that we felt like we had a personal connection with the person who was marrying us, and we really got that with you. You were so relaxed and so good at making sure that our wedding expressed our love and commitment to each other, it really wasn’t a cookie-cutter ceremony, it was so personal. You also negotiated the sound issues with the microphone with grace and calm. Our wedding party was really appreciative of how thoroughly you conducted our rehearsal. I know I’ve been to several weddings where I was more confused and unsure after the rehearsal than before. Especially with our non-traditional wedding site with people coming from so many directions, it really helped make our ceremony go smoothly. We feel like our connection with you extends beyond the day of our wedding and we’ll highly recommend you to family and friends. You were meant to do this and we feel blessed that our paths crossed at the right time so you could share in our wedding day.

Amber & Charlie; Eugene, Oregon

Thank you for the unique African candles! Most of all thank you for the beautiful ceremony; we’ve gotten so many compliments on you! Thanks for making that day the best day of our lives!

Luke & Courtney, April 1st, 2011

Thank you so much for officiating our wedding…we could not have been more pleased with the work you provided!

Alex & Kelly, October 23rd, 2010

Dear Susan,
Our family thanks you for supporting us through this difficult time… The burial and memorial services you provided were inspirational… I felt that you truly cared about my brother and our family and it seemed like you knew him even though you didn’t. We can’t thank you enough. Many of those who attended the service told us it was very moving and helped them to feel closer to Rick even though he had been away from Minnesota for a very long time. Some even said it was the best memorial they have ever attended! Thank you once again.

Judy ~ September 2010

Reverend Susan,
Thank you kindly for all of your time, efforts and patience on our wedding day and the weeks leading up to it. We found ourselves in a very difficult place when we came to you and will remain forever grateful to you for making our wedding day the special day we wanted it to be! You listened to us and allowed the day to be about our love for one another and for that we cannot possibly thank you enough. …several of our guests were very complimentary of your officiating and one of them even said it was the best ceremony she has ever attended! We will recommend you to all of our friends!
All of our best,

Hayley & Blake, August 28th, 2010

Dear Susan,
I can’t thank you enough for the ceremony you gave to me and Peter. Our surprise wedding was more perfect than I ever dreamed. The look on Peter’s face and his tears of joy were priceless. I knew the words were meant for us the first time I read them and I know Peter felt the same way. And you delivered them perfectly. We will remember that day for the rest of our lives. You did help make it a perfect day.

Katy & Peter, July 14, 2010

…thank you for the fine work you did at our wedding.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Steff & Tim, April 16th, 2010
