  • Working with Arissa for our wedding ceremony in May 2020 was one of the only things that went smoothly for us. She was a calming, reassuring presence from our first phone conversation; and guided us through the process of creating a ceremony unique to us, with ease. Due to covid restrictions we had to change our plans multiple times and Arissa was 100% flexible and supportive. She never made us feel like we were asking too much and encouraged us to do what was best for us. She was genuinely concerned that we should have a day that we were totally happy with. Arissa is well spoken and did a wonderful job officiating our small ceremony. Her experience and guidance ensured that everything went smoothly. I heartily recommend Arissa!

  • Arissa was so easy to work with throughout the entire process of planning the ceremony for our February 2020 wedding! Neither my husband or I are very religious, and had a difficult time finding an officiant we felt comfortable with. We first met Arissa at a local coffee shop and immediately felt comfortable! We loved that her focus for our ceremony could be our love story. It was incredibly easy to work with Arissa throughout the entire planning process - we were able to answer questions and make decisions in our own time, and she was always extremely responsive to any of our emails! By the day of, she had thoughtfully put together a beautiful ceremony for us - we had many guest comment on how beautiful and heartfelt ceremony had been.

  • It was an absolute honor to have Arissa as our wedding officiant. Our wedding day had a hint of magic added to it by Arissa's creativity and her delivery of our story and vows. We could not have asked for a better ceremony and all guests kept asking where we found her! She was a delight to work with and demystified the planning process for our special day. If you're looking for someone who is passionate about her work and compassionate about your wants and needs, she is the person for you. Thank you Arissa for making our wedding day the best day ever!

  • Arissa was amazing, flexible, and ready to help us create the ceremony of our dreams! The story she helped us tell and the moments she created for us and our guests will be with us for our entire lives. Thanks to her approach to the ceremony, everyone knew exactly what the to of is meant to each other. All the guests raved afterwards about how perfectly "us" the ceremony was. ♥️

  • Having Arissa as our officiant was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We first experienced Arissa's talent when she officiated at our friend's wedding. She was outstanding- and it truly was one of the most magical ceremonies we had the pleasure of witnessing. So when we got engaged we knew we wanted Arissa to be part of our day. Arissa was so wonderful to work with, great communication and incredibly organized! Our ceremony was hands down the highlight of our day. Arissa captured our love story so perfectly and we were complimented endlessly on how touching it was. I would highly recommend Arissa to everyone!

  • When picking someone to officiate your wedding, it’s hard if you do not belong to a church, or feel like someone will understand you completely after only meeting you a few times. From the FIRST meeting with Arissa my now husband and I knew we absolutely had a connection with her, and felt so comfortable in her presence! Arissa has such an amazing energy about her, and in combination with her completely professional process or learning who we were and how we met, etc. we knew we HAD to have her!! Our ceremony was more amazing than we could even imagine. We went through the “vibe” we wanted, and Arissa had pages and pages of possible quotes,verses, and anecdotes to be shared during the ceremony - we were able to craft something so unique it made us feel so comfortable! With questions answered by myself and my husband she was able to create the most unique and truly amazing ceremony and “love story” that she read for the first time at our ceremony. We get such a connecti... Read more

  • We sadly lost our first officiant to very sad circumstances a month before our wedding and we were contacted by Arissa to help us! She stepped in and it was absolutely seamless! She has such a kind nature and was incredibly supportive of us! The ceremony was perfect and afterwards, she helped us with our paperwork and made sure our vow books and wedding certificate were mailed safely to us. I would highly recommend Arissa! Your ceremony will be heart felt and perfectly catered to you and your fiancé!

  • My husband and I were married by Arissa in August 2019. We could not have asked for a better officiant. Arissa was attentive, calming, thoughtful and so lovely to work with. Arissa truly took the time to get to know us and understand our story. I had some family emergencies arise just before the wedding and not only was Arissa extremely accommodating to last minute changes, she was a really positive energy in a stressful time! The ceremony was so much more than I could have ever expected and really felt special to us. Our guests are still commenting on how much they enjoyed the ceremony—in fact, most people assumed she was family or a close family friend because everything was so personal. After the wedding, Arissa handled the marriage licensing quickly and without any issues. She also sent us a lovely packet with the ceremony and vows printed out—such a special touch. We are thrilled that we connected with Arissa and cannot recommend her enough for your special day.

  • Arissa is absolutely incredible and wrote us the most beautiful ceremony that captured all the sweet details of me and my partner's relationship. Our guests are still talking about how personal the ceremony was and how they feel like they know us better because of Arissa's words. She was wonderful to work with and really took the time to get to know us. When she sent over the first draft we had a lot of edits and she was really willing to work with us to make sure it was perfect. The love story she wrote made everybody cry and laugh. Couldn't recommend her enough.

  • We were lucky enough to have Arissa as our officiant and we couldn’t have had a better experience! She was so professional and kind, she helped us from start to finish, including but not limited to meeting with us in person before the ceremony, walking us through the steps in obtaining a marriage license, and facilitating the rehearsal of the ceremony. We are very lucky to have chosen her and were told by multiple guests that they loved how she performed our personalized ceremony. We would highly recommend Arissa for your wedding.

  • Arissa was so great! The "love story questions" she had us send her beforehand made our ceremony so unique and personalized. She is definitely a professional and walked us through the process and made us feel calm and stress-free on the day of. Thank you Arissa!

  • Arissa was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. From our first email, she was positive in her responses, and quick to get back to us. We first communicated via video chat, as we live away from her location, and the entire process of meeting her and introducing ourselves and having her explain the way she creates her meaningful and personal ceremonies was completely pressure free. She was reassuring and kindly re-explained as I asked questions over and over again. As she was creating our “love story” she asked us thoughtful and personal questions about our past, present, and future together, and helped us to select readings and vows that were special and meaningful to us as a couple. Arissa was so flexible with our needs - making herself available for video chats, doing a phone call rehearsal a couple days before the big day, and giving us plenty of time to get back to her about our “love story” questions and ceremony choices. And then there was the ceremon... Read more

  • Arissa was fantastic and really made sure our wedding felt like 'us'. She took the time to talk with us as a couple and individually, getting to know us and crafted the perfect ceremony for our personalities. We were a little bit behind on some of our planning, but she never made us feel rushed and just wanted what was in our best interest. Arissa was incredibly flexible, willing to change things as we got closer to our wedding to make sure our ceremony was perfect. I'd highly recommend her to anyone.
