  • We had a lot of changes during COVID and we were in search of an officiant pretty last minute. Arissa was so flexible in working with us. In just a month or so left, Arissa put together such a personal story for us and she is so skilled at her craft. We felt confident in her ability to put something together in just a few weeks and it felt as if we've worked with her all year. She's such a great listener, so personable and professional I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a versatile and easy to work with officiant!

  • I cannot rave enough about our amazing and special wedding ceremony, all thanks to Arissa! She was able to capture our relationship from just a few phone calls with me and my now-husband and tell a beautiful love story in such a special way on our special day. She is so calming and professional and a breeze to work with, making the details of our ceremony the least stressful part of the day. I'm so happy we got to work with her and I would recommend her to anyone getting married in Seattle!My mom continues to rave about the ceremony as well: "Out of all the weddings that I have been through over a lifetime… I’m 56 years old. I have to say my daughter's wedding ceremony was the best one I’ve ever attended and it is not because it was my daughter’s wedding. I have only been to traditional wedding ceremonies and my daughter's wedding was definitely not traditional… in the very best way! It was beautiful to hear their history. The thoroughness on the part of the officiant a... Read more

  • Going into wedding planning, we were most nervous about finding an officiant who would be able to make our ceremony come together. It turns out that we had absolutely nothing to worry about! Arissa made everything so easy leading up to our big day, even though planning a wedding during this crazy pandemic meant that we faced a lot of different logistical difficulties and scheduling changes. For the ceremony, Arissa did a wonderful job stitching together our story, which was the cherry on top for our intimate, family-focused wedding. We recently received a copy of our entire ceremony in the mail, which we will certainly cherish!

  • We were so focused on where to have our wedding that we left our ceremony to almost the last minute - do not do this! Arissa eased our minds immediately and throughout the process, and especially on the day. She wove together our love story so perfectly that our ceremony ended up being our favorite part of the day. We also took part in a premarital coaching session which just cemented our commitment and love for each other. Arissa is truly the best.

  • Arissa officiated our elopement beautifully. First she spoke with us to find out information about who we were as people and as a couple. Then she sent us separate emails to find out what made that person special to us. She even reviewed our vows to make sure everyone was on the same page. At the event, she brought it all together so well. We’re super impressed and happy to have her play such a big part on our special day. She has a very calming presence and great energy

  • ***Not sure what happened with the date above, but our wedding was on 10/17/2020. Every wedding is special, but having Arissa as your officiant will make it even more so. Where she stands apart is in going the extra mile to make it personal and heartfelt. She tells your story as part of the ceremony, and hearing what she’s crafted from your words will have you falling in love all over again. For a wedding that truly celebrates the coming together of two people in a touching way that will be with you forever, you can’t do better than Arissa.

  • Arissa was absolutely wonderful to work with. She provided such a person touch to our ceremony by capturing our story and incorporating both humor and the things that were most important to us. She had us and our guests back and forth between laugher and tears the entire time, which is exactly what we wanted for our small intimate wedding. Arissa was extremely responsive and was beyond helpful in explaining the process and our options. We were ultimately able to piece together the flow and wording for our entire ceremony, from the ring exchange, style of vows, extra readings, and even a small part to honor our parents. We were just blown away by the whole experience and would highly recommend working with Arissa if you have an upcoming ceremony (of ANY type or style because she can capture just about anything you are looking for and make yours). Thank you, Arissa. You were a breath of fresh air while planning a very stressful pandemic wedding!

  • Arissa helped us make our ceremony dream become reality. The ceremony itself was so beautiful, her speech was incredible. I literally cried tears of joy, my groom did too, the entire time lol She is very kind, calm, and just brings the good energy to your special day which was most important to me. I could tell she truly listened to what we were hoping for which is why it all came out so great. Arissa's service was worth every penny! She responds to emails quickly and is very flexible, she encourages you to make your dreams come true. I can't recommend her enough, choose her and you will no doubt be very happy!

  • Arissa was so wonderful to work with! My husband and I had to change our plans several times because of covid regulations and she was so responsive and helpful. Something we loved was how she worked with us individually to craft our vows and love story which we each heard for the first time at the ceremony. She perfectly nailed the tone of the ceremony by having it lighthearted, funny and emotional at different times and had my whole family in tears. I would highly recommend anyone who wants both a personal touch and unparalleled professionalism to use Arissa for their wedding!

  • When we first met with Arissa we knew right away she was a perfect fit to be our officiant! She has such a calm and peaceful personality she made us feel so comfortable. Arissa is a great listener and made such a tailored love story for us which was read during the ceremony. Our wedding was also during covid and we had to change our date twice, she was so flexible and willing to make our special day happen. She made our day so special and I could not have imagined it without her!

  • From our first discussions with Arissa, we knew her energy was what we wanted in an officiant and present at our wedding: grounded, kind, open. She listened to what our vision was for our wedding and held the key elements close, reflecting our vision back to us as guidance when we needed it, or in simple acknowledgement that she "got" us. The pandemic hit right in the middle of wedding planning and there were so many things we needed to restructure to make our dream wedding work; I was anxious that when I had to keep changing things it might be frustrating for Arissa (and photographer) and each time I was greeted with softness, encouragement, and total flexibility. Ours was not a typical wedding-it started with quite a long, strenuous hike (wedding clothes in the bags on our back) up to an alpine lake, and more hiking to find the right place to do the ceremony- just us, our officiant, and our photographer. Arissa did exactly what we needed her to do- she was SO grounding. She did a ble... Read more

  • 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!
