10 Year Vow Renewal

Rev Dr Possman,

What a surprise and a treat to see you in Blowing Rock for our vow renewal. I’m still blown away and so thankful you could be there and do this for us. I was just telling Hogan the night before how lucky we were to have found you for our wedding. This is another special occasion I will always hold dear.

Thank you!  Hillary Fulghum

I cannot say enough incredible things about Rev. Dr. Gregory Possman! He went above and beyond from the first time I sent him an email. After I officially booked him, we had a call and talked about what my husband and I wanted for our ceremony. He sent me 3-4 samples of ceremonies and we were able to piece together exactly what we wanted. He followed up multiple times prior to the wedding to ensure everything was still on track. He showed up for the rehearsal on time and did an incredible job keeping everyone informed and on track. He ran the ceremony with ease and made my husband and I feel so comfortable and loved. Guests cannot stop talking about how great the ceremony was—to the point and they could actually hear Rev. Dr. Gregory Possman speak. I would highly recommend High Country Ministers to any bride looking for a minister!!

Hi Sandie-  I just wanted to send our heartfelt  thanks for all your help and support, and guidance for our Wedding last week.  You are such a joyful, spiritual, beautiful individual, and I needed such positive energy on such a day.    I regret we didn’t get a few more minutes to chat and become more acquainted.  But the day was just lovely- and the ceremony was ever so memorable, all thanks to you.  We have framed our ceremony/the text of the service.

I have given a strong endorsement to several dozen of my friends, for you, in case they are ever in need of such help.

Thank you again Sandie 🙂  … Happy Spring! –  Vanessa Smith (Burrell)

“Absolutely perfect wedding minister!”,
We decided on a whim- after over a year of struggling to plan a wedding- to get married while on our mini mountain vacation in Linville, NC. I called High Country Ministers hoping someone was available on such short notice. Rev. Sandie was so lovely on the phone and asked just the right questions to prepare a ceremony tailored to us. She arrived early, continued the ceremony without a hitch even with our 2 children climbing into our arms and crying. She made our day absolutely perfect- even in such a short amount of time. We will forever be grateful to her.

Thank you,
Valerie and Bo

Sandie officiated our wedding on October 20th and it was wonderful! I was planning from long distance and she still worked with me on every step along the way. She provided scripts and let me pick and choose and add to them to make it special and customized for us. The day of went so quick, but you could tell Sandie was a seasoned professional. Everything went smoothly and exactly how we planned. She helped me with information on the licenses and made sure I didn’t stress about that. That Monday she took in the paperwork to the courthouse as promised and we we’re able to get our offical certificates before leaving town without a hitch. I would definitely recommend using her. Thank you High Country Ministers! Adah and Alan King

Lara and Kenneth

Dear Gregory,
Wow, what a beautiful ceremony you conducted for us on the 21st! I so appreciate everything you did to make our ceremony smooth, personal, memorable and meaningful. Thank you for encouraging and allowing us to add the details and time we requested to create the perfect ceremony for us. You did an amazing job and we received many compliments. Please also thank your Sister for all her rehearsal and day of, assistance. Everyone included in this day helped make it the most beautiful, heartfelt, joyous and special day that it was and we are grateful and humbled by this. Some parts of this day (reception) passed in a blur for me so I hope you did stay long enough to eat, drink and enjoy the fruits of your hard work! For my part, I could not have wished for anyone else to perform our wedding. You made it special and I thank you from my heart. I look forward to seeing you again as I know I will!
Love, Lara.

Rev Dr Gregory Possman, Thank you so much for officiating our ceremony. You made the process very simple, from offering us choices of ceremonies to letting us know what we needed to do about the marriage license. Your energy during the ceremony was perfect, and many people commented on how beautiful the ceremony was. I would highly recommend High Country Ministers for anyone looking for an officiant in the High Country of NC. Thanks again!

Kelly and Don Cipriani

“Don and I want to extend our gratitude to you for your part in our wedding ceremony in Blowing Rock this summer. Planning a destination wedding presents its own challenges, so it is extremely important to choose people who will make your dreams for your special day a reality. You provided guidance throughout the planning process, and then you pulled together our ideas, which made our ceremony unique and personal to our family. The day was absolutely perfect, and it turned out even more beautifully than we could have imagined! We all felt the presence of God and believe we have a special blessing on our marriage. Many thanks to you!”

Shonna McNasby

“We chose Sandie Possman as our officiant because when we told people what we were looking for, multiple people immediately mentioned her name. When I met her, I knew exactly why she’d received such praise. Once in a great while, you meet someone truly authentic, who really loves what they do. That’s what I loved most about our initial meeting for coffee with Sandie. She was genuinely interested in us as a couple, and full of enthusiasm for getting our ceremony just the way we wanted. We talked through some edits we wanted to make, she helped us understand how to make changes but keep the “flow” of the ceremony, and she answered dozens of questions. She was incredibly patient and gracious, and invited us to make the ceremony truly our own.

When it was time to walk down to my groom, I was so happy to see her kind smile, that same authentic happiness for us, and to have her guide us into this new chapter of our lives. She even had a tissue ready for me right when I needed it. I can’t thank her enough, and If she’s available for your special day I highly recommend her.”

Kathleen

“Everything was so perfect. Thank you again for everything.”

Ash and Ashley

“Ashley and I (We) knew when we first meet you that you were the perfect choice, and you’ve proven we were right.”

Jenn and Frank

“First of all please let me say thank you! You performed such a perfect, sincere ceremony. It was beyond what words can express and Frank and I were both really moved. I am not sure what I expected before I met you in person, but it surpassed my hopes and dreams. We really felt the love in the room and felt that you really meant the words you said, it was so special.

Thank you so much on behalf of both of us. ”
