Ingrid was the best officiant for our multicultural wedding. She was very good at helping us design a ceremony that honored a variety of traditions without being religious. Although we wanted our ceremony to be heartfelt (and it definitely was), Ingrid was able to keep it lighthearted as well, which is more our personalities. My Dad has mentioned how pleased he was with the ceremony, and Ingrid specifically, multiple times since. I also recommended Ingrid to one of my co-workers, who ended up choosing her for an officiant and they were quite pleased as well. Ingrid is very open-minded, easy to talk to, and professional and we were so happy to have her as our wedding officiant.
What a great person! Ingrid was very easy to work with. She works to help you have the ceremony that you really want. And if you're not sure what that is exactly, she offers a lot of really good ideas to help you make your ceremony more personalized. Ingrid is very professional. She has a very clear plan and process so that your ceremony will be beautiful and flawless. I would highly recommend Rev. Ingrid Sagula!
Choosing someone to officiate one of the most special days of your life isn't something to be taken lightly. My husband and I were so lucky to have found Ingrid to hold that place on our big day!
From day 1, Ingrid has shown how patient, kind, and professional she truly is! We were running late for our first meeting, but when we got there she didn't miss a beat. We chose her immediately, and from that point she was so responsive and easy to work with. She sent us some questionnaires to help with personalizing the ceremony, and we went back and forth with changes until the write-up was exactly what we had wanted. When some of my family was running late to the rehearsal, she didn't show frustration at all and made sure that we went through everything to be sure everyone was clear on what they needed to do. She was always punctual, easy to work with, and overall a very nice, friendly person! :)
Our wedding ceremony was so beautiful, and we owe a huge 'thank you' to Ingrid, for making that possible. Thank you, Ingrid!
Rev. Ingrid performed our short, secular ceremony exactly the way we wanted it. We could fully customize our ceremony! She is so nice, responds quickly to emails and calls, and was there to answer any questions we had about the process. I highly recommend her!
Ingrid is one of the top reasons that my wedding absolutely perfect. I could not have asked for a better ceremony, it was PERFECT. Ingrid is so professional and made everything perfect. She met with me before the wedding and we went over everything that I wanted to be included in my ceremony and she did such a great job putting it all together and wrote it all up. We were able to read it ahead of time and change anything we wanted to. She was simply amazing, and I am SO glad we had her as our offciant for our wedding.
What a lovely lady. She is so easy to work with and really sweet. She really wants you to have the ceremony that you always envisioned. She provides really great ideas and really makes the ceremony personalized. Everyone told us how great she was and what a beautiful ceremony we had. I would highly recommend Rev. Ingrid Sagula!
Ingrid is very easy to talk to, and took the time to understand us and our relationship before writing our ceremony. Her first draft of our ceremony made me cry, and I never cry. The entire ceremony was customized and personal to us. Ingrid's delivery was perfect on our wedding day. We received many compliments on the ceremony, and it was all her hard work.
We are so grateful for Ms. Sagula and the wonderful job she did at our wedding. She was so professional, calm, and overall pleasant. She worked with us through the process and helped us make the ceremony exactly as we envisioned it.
She was on time, rehearsed, and ready for our big day.
My favorite part about Ms. Sagula is her voice is so nice and works well within a wedding atmosphere...she is very clear in her speaking abilities which all our guests appreciated.
Rev.Ingrid Sagula was definitely one of the reasons our wedding was unforgettable. She really listened to what kind of ceremony we wanted and she wrote the most beautiful vows I have ever heard. It was absolutely perfect. She kept in touch with us throughout the entire process and was quick to answer our questions and calm our nerves. On the day of the wedding, she showed up early to check on us, and her peaceful presence just put all of us at ease. During the ceremony, she spoke in a way that made it all incredibly loving and meaningful. After the wedding, I had 3 different people ask me if or where she preaches on Sundays because they wanted to hear her again. And several people commented to me about how professional and sweet she was. I cannot say enough nice things about her. She truly has a gift for what she does and I am so thankful we found her. She really made our wedding special.
Rev. Ingrid was so wonderful, I really could not say enough good things about her. She prepared a ceremony that was completely personal to my husband and I, and it fit us so well. She was always available and quick to respond to any inquiries. Because of extenuating circumstances, I could not be at my own rehersal (crazy, I know!) but she simply said "no big deal" and made me feel so much better about the fact that I was going to miss it. She even gave me an "abbreviated" rehersal via e-mail! She guided us through the whole process seamlessly and our ceremony was perfect. I can't tell you how many people have complimented our ceremony and Rev. Ingrid. She was funny, warm and inviting. We truly could not have asked for a better officiant or ceremony.
Rev. Ingrid Sagula made our wedding day so special and all about us. She worked with us in getting to know us and create a ceremony that was romantic, sentimental and descriptive of us and our relationship. She was very professional and made sure our ceremony ran smoothly. I would recommend Rev. Ingrid to anyone who is looking for someone to officiate their wedding if they don't have someone in particular.
Rev. Ingrid Sagula was a pleasure to work with! From the moment we met her, we knew we wanted her to officiate our wedding. From a business standpoint, she had quick response time, she made herself available to us for any questions via email or face-to-face meetings and gave us many different options in order to personalize our ceremony. On a personal level, she created a warm, beautiful, and unique ceremony that my husband and I will never forget!!
After a brief meeting over coffee, talking about our vision for our ceremony, Ingrid was able to put together a beautiful ceremony, tailored exactly to who we are, and the feel we wanted to project. She is incredibly well-spoken, professional, and you can tell she really loves performing ceremonies. It was just perfect!!
Ingrid was extremely flexible and understanding in creating a unique nonreligious ceremony for us. We planned our wedding from across the country and Ingrid introduced herself via Skype and was great about keeping up with us over email as we created our ceremony. We incorporated a few different traditions and didn't make it easy for her, but Ingrid handled the ceremony naturally and gracefully. She took the time to get to know what we were looking for to personalize our ceremony.
We are so glad that we chose Reverend Sagula to act as officiant at our wedding. Her calm demeanor, comforting presence, and gentle sense of humor helped steady our nerves and put everyone at ease on our wedding day. As a bride, I was especially thankful for the phone call she made to me the morning of our ceremony, asking if I needed anything.
Reverend Sagula was a pleasure to work with. She understood what we were looking for in a ceremony and helped shape it. She is refined, kind, sensitive and intelligent. We highly recommend her to anyone searching for a wedding officiant!
Rev. Ingrid Sagula is such a joy. She made our ceremony so special. I am so pleased with my choice on picking her to be a part of my special day.
I highly recommend her for your gathering. She brings a ray of sun shine when she enters the door. She is a beautiful person inside and out.
Rev. Sagula performed a thoughtful, intimate, and well-informed wedding ceremony. She was responsive, patient, and kind. The day of my wedding was rather typical - I was a nervous bride! Rev. Sagula was so calming and sweet that I instantly was able to center myself and remember what a joyous occasion this truly was! I highly recommend Rev. Sagula to any couple getting married in beautiful North Carolina.

Choosing an officiant is a very personal process but Ingrid was perfect for us.
She was very flexible, a great listener, and her experience was very helpful. She was able to get to know us well enough to create a ceremony that was distinctly us and everything we wanted it to be.
Hiring Ingrid as our officiant to marry us, was the best decision ever! Her professionalism, personality, flexibility and price were just unbeatable!!! We met with multiple officiants and we chose her based on her relaxed and great aura as well as ideas and knowledge! She created our entire ceremony and it fit us perfectly...I was speechless, when she sent it for proof reading...it was perfect! My family and friends loved her, said she was so sweet, warm and kindhearted! I would highly recommend her to anybody!!!! On our wedding day, she was there on time if not before, spoke with us and prepared everyone what to do and stayed there till it was her time to leave...no rush..just on spot! I will recommend her over and over!!!! :)

The act of choosing an officiant can get confusing. We had been looking for a while when we stumbled on Ingrid Sagula's website. After checking out her website we had some questions for her and we left her a message and she called back that day. She was very easy to talk to and was super flexible with different ways we could do things. We were worried about what the actual words of the service would be and would we like them. Ingrid emailed us a sample service she had prepared and it was the most beautiful thing we had ever heard. It was so nice that we decided to use it with no changes although she gave us the option to change whatever we wanted. When I say beautiful, its really an understatement. She arrived early and took charge which took a huge stress of of us. She made sure everyone was ready and knew what they were supposed to do. The service was perfect and everyone said it was so the most beautiful service they had seen. We both felt like we had know her for ever and she has a calming effect about her that made things so smooth.
My mother passed right after we were married and my sister and myself asked Ingrid to conduct the service. My mother was a college professor for over 30 years and there must have been over 300 people at the service. Ingrid did such a beautiful job. We were both so grateful that she was available. She is truly a wonderful and caring person. My advise to anyone that is planning a wedding or other special event is to check out her website http://www.carolinaweddings-usa.com and give her a call. You won't be sorry.
