  • I wish there was a way to Arissa more than 5 stars!! Seriously, you may as well stop searching because she is the best and will provide you with a ceremony that your guests will still be talking about months after your wedding. I didn't even realize that a ceremony could be a wedding highlight! We found Arissa through a referral and I was pretty nervous to meet her because I was worried that an officiant wouldn't be able to provide a ceremony that felt like "us" but as soon as we met, those fears disappeared. She has this ability to make you instantly calm (great for stressed out brides!) and you know she is really listening to you and what you want for your ceremony. After our initial meeting, she talked to both me and my husband independently and created a special piece of the ceremony about our relationship and why we love each other (note: we opted to hear this for the first time on our wedding day and it was so special). We worked with her over the next few weeks and picked re... Read more

  • Dear Arissa, Todd and I want to thank you for making our wedding a truly memorable and special one. Your story-telling was beautiful and warm. Your tone was relaxing and grounding. The ring-warming session helped create a very intimate space where guests could express themselves and share their thoughts and feelings. Todd and I are extremely grateful to you. Todd & Santiago

  • Arissa is the single most important person that made our wedding special and tailored to us as a couple. Her gift of listening is impeccable, she knows the questions to ask to help you find the elements of tradition or going out of tradition to make things just right. She tactfully played tie-breaker when my wife and I had different ideas of what we wanted. She did it by really listening enough to know what questions to ask to bring us to a compromise, or to meet the needs one one of us at some other point in the ceremony. She also had such a broad spectrum of readings from traditional to religious to downright hippie! This saved us SO much work in searching, and we used four of them. On the wedding day she was such an anchor of calm joy to draw on, I was so glad she was standing near us. Take the time to meet with Arissa. She is worth every moment you talk to her, and every penny you spend.

  • After the first meeting with Arissa, we immediately realized what an absolutely great person she would be to guide us through this wonderful day we had planned for years! The first thing we noticed about her is that she is a great listener. She spent the time to get to know us and had a genuine interest in our interests, our loves, our desires and just our life in general as it pertained to each other. This would prove to be very important later on in our ceremony. As we drew closer to the big day, Arissa was always supportive and caring, always making sure we were in a good space. With all of the stresses, checklists and general unknowns that come with getting married, Arissa was a constant sure thing we could rely on and feel confident in. The actual ceremony that Arissa prepared for us was absolutely beautiful. She wove together personal details from both of our lives to create a story that was both unique and wonderful and most importantly, fun to listen to! To have some... Read more

  • Arissa was amazing! Our ceremony was personalized and made our guest really understand our story to marriage. Many of our guest were asking all evening if she was a family friend or a family member because of her energy with us and her extensive knowledge of us as a couple. She did a remarkable job on such an important day of our lives!

  • Arissa was awesome! She helped us prepare our vows. She was reliable and professional. She guided us through the stressful time before the ceremony. She was a calming and benevolent presence at our wedding. Several of our guests commented on how eloquent she was and how they wished they had known about her when they had gotten married. We loved the keepsake book she prepared for us with our ceremony information in it. She's great!

  • Arissa created a wonderful, heartfelt and intimate ceremony for us. Many of our guests have commented that it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to. We had a small wedding (50 people) and Arissa performed a ring warming ceremony where each guest held the rings and gave us a personal blessing or best wishes-- it made the whole ceremony very meaningful and brought everyone together in a wonderful way. Also, my grandmother had just passed away a few days before the ceremony and Arissa took extra care to pay special honor to her. That meant a lot to me and everyone in my family. She really made our wedding all about the ceremony and gave us great memories that we will always cherish.

  • My wife and I eloped in Seattle and while we thought we had planned everything, there were some things we forgot. Like to enjoy the moment. We were kind of frazzled and running around and Arissa helped us get centered and focused on the moment. Her kindness really does shine through her your face - I'm so glad I followed my gut feeling!! Thank you again for making our day amazing!! -Kirsten & Carrie

  • Arissa is highly skilled and professional in her role as the wedding officiant for our wedding last fall. Communication from initial email contact through post-wedding thank you notes was timely, on-point and clear. She exudes a warm, friendly, calm and helpful persona, she really loves telling a couple's love story. Arissa has a good working strategy for assisting her couple clients through the process of designing and executing their ceremonies (this part of a wedding really does set the tone for any event, she is an expert in this). She worked thoroughly with us to create a custom wedding ceremony and made it genuine, many of our guests complimented on the intimate and loving feelings they felt during the ceremony. We are happy to have had the opportunity for Arissa to be part of our wedding day team, she was integral in making it a wonderful day for us. We will continue to cherish the vows that she lovingly wrote for us, we plan to read them at our future anniversaries as a reminde... Read more

  • We are truly blessed to have found such a wonderful celebrant for our wedding - our friends and family still comment about what a great job Arissa did with our ceremony! We first met Arissa just a month prior to ourwedding and she made time to visit us at our home even though she was leaving for a trip the next day. Arissa is truly a wonderful listener - she wanted to hear all about our relationship and how we fell in love, and she translated that story into a beautiful ceremony. She is a calming presence who was willing to make our ceremony very personal, intimate, and heartwarming - everything that a wedding ceremony should be. She even provided the ceremony in a keepsake notebook, which we will treasure forever. Arissa is the ideal celebrant and made everything so easy for us. We highly recommend her and have already shared her information with a few friends who want her to marry them, too!

  • Thank you again for working with us to make our day special. All of the guests that we spoke with after the ceremony said that the ceremony was excellent and that it felt like it was very customized to Theresa and I. We wholeheartedly agree with them and extend a huge thank you for facilitating that process and doing an excellent job especially with the personalized piece. We really could not imagine a better ceremony! We were told over and over by a lot of people that the vows were the best they ever heard and we thank you for working so closely with us on them. You are truly top-notch!!

  • Arissa was extremely professional, flexible, and she helped to create a wedding day that was uniquely us. All of our friends and family enjoyed the intimacy of our vows and the story of us. Arissa was helpful in providing tips on how to structure the ceremony without making it feel like a run through of prayers and "I do's" that would have been against the grain on how we wanted our day to flow. The ceremony had the perfect balance of helping our families feel like they were a part of the beginning of the rest of our journey together while still placing the focus on our commitment to one another. Thank you Arissa for helping to make our day perfect!
