From Brooklyn, New York to Lancaster, Pennsylvania
Since I get to know a lot about the couples I officiate weddings for, I think it’s only fair that you get to know at least a little about me, Reenie Panzini.
I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and I still have a bit of an accent… or maybe more than a bit. You can tell me when we meet. I’ve had many, many wedding guests come up to me after a ceremony and try to guess where I’m from. I suppose I sound a little different and no one can really put their finger on it; it’s a fun game. Most of my family still lives in NYC and come to visit often. When they do, my accent immediately returns and even after they leave, my kids struggle to understand me for a few days! Lol
I’ve lived in Lancaster, Pa. for nearly 15 years with my husband, three kids, 2 dogs, and a turtle named Fred who is around 30 years-old, watches television and scratches at the glass of his tank if you block his view. I kid you not. Fred is a very odd turtle.
I’ve been in the wedding industry for almost 20 years and have been officiating weddings for over 10. I attended The New Seminary (TNS) for Interfaith Studies in NYC, where I hold the title of Associate Minister of the Interfaith Temple (the ordaining body of TNS) and act as a member of the Pastoral Care Team. While I am a legally ordained, seminary trained, Interfaith Minister, I do NOT expect you (or really want you to) call me Reverend. Yes, I will sign all your forms with Reverend Panzini because legally that is who I am BUT I am much more comfortable with just Reenie.
Here’s what some of my couples have had to say. Thank you, wonderful couples!
Reenie just officiated my wedding this past weekend and was amazing! She was always so quick to respond to any question I had. Her readings matched our personalities perfectly and I had many people compliment on that!

Reverend Reenie Panzini was the officiant at a wedding we recently photographed at Harmony Hall Estate and I cannot say enough kind words about her. I have worked with her a few times now and every time I come away from the ceremony completely refreshed and teary-eyed from her beautiful sentiments. Thank you Reverend Reenie Panzini for being such a wonderful friendor to work with. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant!

Reverend Reenie was such a pleasure working with and has a wonderful personality. She made us feel so comfortable and guests raved about our ceremony. A few people even said it was the best wedding ceremony they have ever seen. Thanks again Reenie for making the start of our marriage so memorable.

Reenie officiated our wedding last weekend and it went off perfectly! She came up with a great ceremony for us and orchestrated the whole thing on our wedding day. We got so many compliments from our family about how fun and upbeat our officiant was, and how beautiful the ceremony was. If you're in need of a great officiant who can turn your ideas into the perfect ceremony, definitely get in touch with Reenie Panzini of Susquehanna Ceremonies!

If you are looking for an officiant to help you celebrate love, I don't think there's a more perfect person in the world! Reenie is so adorable and fun - I think meeting her was one of the times I was most excited for my wedding. She was more than receptive to the unique ideas we had for our ceremony and she helped us add the traditional elements that we were struggling with but wanted to include. Plus she just exudes acceptance, love, and positivity which was evident in all our communications, including the big day (April 2014). I would absolutely recommend Reenie to anyone getting married in/around the Lancaster area!

Reenie is a wonderful woman whom I first had the pleasure of meeting when she conducted my sister's wedding. Her patience and sense of humor won me over almost immediately, but her professionalism and attention to detail provided me with the reassurance that my sister would not disappointed. Since the wedding Reenie has also become a dear friend, and I enjoy hearing of all the wonderful directions and journeys her ministry has or is taking her on.
