Everything was PERFECT!!!!

Pamela did our ceremony at our home. She was great. She is so down to earth and a real person. We hired her son to do our photography, and they came right in and got to work. My ceremony was beautiful and so was our pictures. She gave us a laminated card of our vows that we wrote as a keepsake. Everything was PERFECT!!!! We would recommend her highly!

Wow! Rev. Pamela was amazing

Wow! Rev. Pamela was amazing. Our family couldn’t stop saying how beautiful the ceremony was. She puts a lot of thought into her service and it was so affordable, flexible, and perfect for us. In true fashion, we were late to the house and arrived frantic but Pamela was so calm and ushered me upstairs to change and relax. She had such a beautiful set up and had it ready for an outside or inside ceremony since the weather was rainy that day. Half way through the ceremony outside we had to bolt in the house because it started pouring! Then there was a tornado warning and we all had to huddle in the basement. But she brought down the delicious house wine and cups and we all had a great laugh about it! We were still able to go through the ceremony, cutting the cake, everything and left on time for our downtown reception. We can’t thank you enough Pamela for making it such a special day for us and handling everything so well. I have told everyone about you and hopefully will send some couples your way! You’re the best! A million thanks-

A Ceremony We’ll Treasure…

Reverend Pam is a fantastic interfaith She traveled to our wedding location in Chicago, and worked with us to craft a unique and wonderful ceremony. She was kind,  calming and professional. Our ceremony is something we will always treasure and Rev. Pam helped make is so. She arrived on time and helped make our special day all our own, customizing our ceremony to reflect our beliefs.

I also appreciated the laminated card of our ceremony and vows to each other, it is a true keepsake that I will treasure always.

We highly recommend her and her services!!!! She is fantastic!!!!!

 

 

LOVE Rev Pam & Pine Manor!!

Pine Manor is the perfect place for a wedding.

At least, that is my belief after my 8-18-12 wedding here. The rest of the day went by as a blur for me, but my memories of being in Rev Pam’s beautiful home and yard, sharing vows with the man I love will be treasured memories for the rest of my life, and its because Rev Pam provided us with such a lovely place and had such attention to detail (I mean, she even went out of her way to get Sugar Free Lemonade for my diabetic mom!!) that NOTHING went wrong on our special day. If you are looking to have a small, intimate wedding then I cannot imagine going anywhere else.

I could not have been happier

My husband is in the Air Force and we decided to get married while he was on leave and have a big wedding later on. Originally we were going to go to the court house, but after learning how extremely half fast it would have been, decided we wanted something a little nicer. I looked at many different websites that had officiants but they were so ridiculously over priced and you got almost nothing. And then I came along Rev. Pamala’s website and after speaking with her, knew she was the best choice. She charges very little compared to other officiants and you get so much more than your money’s worth. There was a total of 13 of us in the party and for less money than the other officiants I found, I got a location to have my wedding, a customized ceremony, a bridal room for which to put my finishing touches together, champagne before and after the ceremony, coffee, a certificate of our union, a photographer, and I was able to download my pictures and not have to pay extra. Rev. Pamela is the sweetest woman and very accomodating. Any request I had, like switching a few words in the ceremony as well as having a bottle of champagne in my bridal room, to ease my nerves before the wedding, she gladly fufilled. She was extremely easy to get a hold of whenever I had any questions, both by phone and email. Don’t be fooled by the look of the outside of her house, because it does look like your average home, but the inside of it is so beautifully decorated and has a very charming feel to it. And the way she sets up her backyard for the ceremony is lovely. I could not have been happier having a small wedding anywhere else. Whether you are straight or gay, and you don’t want to have a big expensive wedding, but still do want to have a very special day, this is the place to have you wedding at.

We ended up having a great memory and a special day

I have to say we were blown away.  We found Pam’s website purely because we were looking for an alternative to standing in line down at the courthouse and didn’t even know the option of a private ceremony with a Justice of the Peace was an option.  We were driven a bit more by urgency than by trying to make the day perfect.  I’m trying to say we had VERY low expectations for the event and braced ourselves for it to be very in personal and well… legal.

PERFECTION!

Pam is truly the best.

From the initial consultation, to the day of, I could not be happier with the entire process! The vows were so touching, and simply perfect! There wasn’t a dry eye in the place! Pam herself is so caring, sweet, and pays attention to every detail. I feel so lucky to have found her (and Ian!).The phenomenal pictures done by Ian were better than anything I could have ever anticipated. Creative and stunning. We will be using him for our photography needs in the future.THANK YOU SO MUCH PAM! MY HUSBAND AND I CANNOT BE HAPPIER! WE LOVE YOU!

It was the most amazing day of my life

It was the most amazing day of my life. With 2 kids and both of us working full time a big wedding was out of the question. Pam was great. We told her what we wanted and when we arrived only 2 hours before our ceremony everything was set up and ready for us. Our photographs are beautiful and there were a lot of original poses. I would recommend going to Pine Manor to anyone looking to have a small wedding.
