Reverend Deborah Hoch officiated our wedding at the Providence Public Library and it was an absolutely wonderful ceremony. From the initial phone conversations to our meetings with Reverend Hoch, we instantly felt her warmth and compassion. We knew she was the one for us. Reverend Hoch conducted our ceremony with professionalism and grace. So many of our guests complimented her for a beautiful ceremony. Thank you for a memorable evening!
A Perfect Ceremony/ Justin and Chris
My brother and his now wife hired Rev. Deborah Hoch to perform their ceremony last year, they sure made the right decision! Rev. Hoch was thoughtful, professional and engaging yet personable throughout the entire ceremony. She spoke clearly yet gently and you can absolutely tell she loves her line of work and her couples. She personalized the ceremony specifically for my brother and his wife. HIGHLY HIGHLY Recommend!
Absolutely fabulous officiant!/ Briel D.
If I could rate more than 5 stars I would!! Deb made our day so special and she exceeded our expectations. During these tough times of covid, planning a wedding was not easy but she eased our minds and created a very intimate and meaningful ceremony that I will remember for the rest of my life. She did an incredible job with the family unity sand ceremony and the baby blessing, she truly does it all! My husband and I will recommend her to ANYONE

Amazing and Thoughtful/ Stephanie and Lauren
I cannot say enough good things about having Deb as our officiant! She was extremely flexible, accommodating, and flexible about our wedding ceremony. She helped us perfect the ceremony itself and her expertise aided in helping our day to go very smoothly. I highly recommend Deb to anyone needing an officiant!
Amazing to work with!/ Samantha M.
Deborah was beyond amazing! She was so helpful during the wedding planning and answered all of my (many) questions. She even thought of things that helped me with other areas of the wedding! She was always one step ahead of us thinking of the little details that are easily forgotten. The day of the ceremony she was so calm that it calmed everyone else down as well. We had so many guests come up to us to tell us how amazing they thought she was.
Best Officiant around!!!/ Kelly
The wedding day was an emotional one .I didn’t even get to spend the extra time with her that she had personally carved out for us, but through the madness, Deb remained professional and courteous throughout all of the chaos! Because of the pandemic, and all of its restrictions, we had to cancel most of our vendors, and modify our original plan. We are so grateful that Deborah Hoch of “An Everlasting Memory” wasn’t one of them! highly recommend
Creative and Memorable/ Melonie and Scott
Deborah, was wonderful! In our journey to choose the right officiant and Deborah was the only one who called me back to actually speak with us and not just send an email. She made us feel comfortable and asked a-lot of question to get to know us and our family to make sure the ceremony was just the way we wanted, despite covid! I would definitely recommend her services. Prompt, professional and gave a calmness to a crazy day!
Everything we were looking for,,,/ Jennifer N.

Excellent!!!!!/ Suzanne C.
Because of covid our 2020 event was much different than planned but Rev.Deb made the transition easy & less stressful and her calm demeanor helped disperse jitters the day of the wedding. Deb worked with the outline and ideas we gave her and the outcome was a fun, special, & meaningful ceremony which we, and all our guests, raved about. Rev. Deb was wonderful to work with and we look forward to working with her again next year for our renewal
Helped make our day special/ Lee W
Deb offered advice, consultation, calm reassurance and guidance through the whole wedding process (not just the ceremony) and delivered a truly outstanding ceremony that all of our guests are still telling us was beautiful. Even our wedding coordinator told us Deborah is his favorite officiant to work with as she is personable, inviting and accommodating to all vendors, venues and people involved in your day. Highly recommend her
Highly Recommend Rev Deborah/ Kevin
Deborah was easy to work with. Provided us with a lot of options to tailor our ceremony to our taste. She was very professional and conducted the ceremony very well. She takes a lot of pride in what she does and it shows.
Highly Recommended Officiant/ Nick C.
After meeting Reverend Deborah at Crestwood Country Club's food tasting, we were so pleased and impressed with her compassion and her professionalism. We knew right then and there, we had to book her to be our officiant at our wedding. We received such good advise and direction from Rev. Deb. She also had so many great vow options to choose from, which allowed us to still have a bit of tradition but with a unique twist in our ceremony. Thankful
Intimate and beautiful!/ Dawn and Ronnie
very bride attempting to marry in 2020 is well aware of the challenges of planning a wedding at this time. My husband and I had to make multiple changes to our plans & Deborah was very patient and accommodating. She was able to summon the right words for our ceremony to influence the mood we were striving for- living in 6 months of uncertainty- everyone needed to feel humor, relief, happiness, & love- Deborah was able to achieve that.
Late Summer Wedding/ Evelyn R.
Deborah was amazing!! Everything was absolutely perfect and she made our day so special. I would 100% recommend her to anyone getting married. So happy we choose her. We choose everything we wanted to say and she made it so easy.

Most Memorable and perfect ceremony/ Cathy and Samantha
Deborah was a pleasure to work with in every way! From our first contact through our final goodbyes, she was excellent at reading us in the moment and providing us the guidance we needed. She was playful when the bride got nervous but treated the ceremony with the utmost respect at the same time. She provided us with many different examples of possible ceremony readings to help us put together with her a ceremony that was deeply meaningful
Rev Deb was a pleasure/ Lynn
We can’t quite find the words to express how thankful we are to you for making our wedding day so special. All of our guests commented on the feeling of Joy, celebration, eloquence and dignity you brought to the ceremony. We have a LifeTime of Unforgettable Memories to Thank You For! With our Deepest Appreciation
Thankful/ Joseph and Kasther
Rev. Deborah Hoch was the officiant for my nieces wedding 3 years ago. I knew immediately that she was the one I wanted for my own wedding. She is kind, thoughtful, helpful and fun. She is a calming spirit!
The best officiant around!/ Elizabeth G.
Deborah is the most amazing person. She is now officially our family JP. She married my Sister, my Daughter, and now my Husband and I. She makes a very stressful, nervous, exciting day so calm and fun. She had everyone laughing, and even got on record that my husband vows to do the dishes. Deborah will customize everything for you down to what she wears. Believe me when I tell you, You will be so happy you called her.I can't wait to see her again
The Best there is/ Karen G.
We could not have asked for more at our wedding. Rev Deb was so wonderful and due to Covid and half the family on zoom, she made sure that everyone present and those on zoom were very much involved. Her warmth and professionalism helped us feel at ease and we are forever grateful to her for our perfect little wedding.
the Boyle's 2020 Wedding/ Xiomara B.
Deborah was very professional throughout the entire wedding planning process. She responds quickly and made us feel so comfortable, always letting us know that it was our day so we can choose how it goes. The nerves I felt on the day quickly went away when Deborah began the ceremony. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a brilliant officiant.
Wonderful Experience!/ Victoria
