I want you to feel great about your officiant choice. I also want you to know how I'm different.

I bring over two decades of professional wedding experience to our collaboration. I'm creative, skilled, and supportive, and I'll be your coach and advocate throughout your ceremony-planning process.

Here's more to consider in your search for an officiant:

  • Look beyond the "Rev." Many officiants who call themselves a "minister" or "Reverend" graduated from a brief interfaith program, and are disconnected from ongoing systems of accountability. I earned an M.Div. and completed two internships before being credentialed and then ordained within a respected religious denomination.

  • Weddings are complicated Let's celebrate your love, because love is amazing! Let's also be real: weddings are also about family—which can create complicated dynamics even before the Big Day. Consider whether you value an officiant who's trained in family dynamics, pastoral counseling, and professional ethics.

  • You deserve a great match If you contact me, I'll request a video meeting so that we can get to know one another. I'm not going to "sell" myself or push my contract at you; I want you to figure out whether we're a great match, because the best officiant for you is one you click with, and one you trust fully. (If that's not me, I'll be happy that you found a better match.)

  • "Officiating" entails a LOT I'm your minister, all the way through the planning, the choices, the pressure you're under. I arrive at the ceremony early, offering calm presence where it's needed. I check in with your other vendors to plan smooth transitions. I handle last-minute surprises with grace and ease, and help you to do the same. By the time the ceremony begins, you and your family will feel more at ease, and ready to be present to the wedding and its celebration.

What My 2023 Couples Say....

  • "Throughout the process, Erika kept the lines of communication clear and flowing, and because of that the ceremony was more than we could have ever dreamed... We utterly adore her. We cannot recommend Erika highly enough, here is a person who radiates joy, love, and a centering energy that will without fail make your ceremony one that reflects you as a couple."

  • "Rev. Erika Hewitt was amazing! Our guests are still commenting on how wonderful the ceremony was. We had debated having a friend officiate but are so glad we worked with Erika! She crafted a ceremony that had the familiarity of a friend but the delivery of a professional."

  • "The short version is Rev. Erika Hewitt was amazing, and she has our highest recommendation. We met with her virtually, and it was instantly clear that she was the one. She not only helped with the ceremony itself, but with numerous logistical issues as well—things we wouldn't have thought of until it was too late. During this process, Rev. Hewitt was kind, flexible, sage, and most of all PATIENT!
