  • Arissa was just so warm and lovely to work with and made our ceremony into exactly what we wanted. She let us have lots of input, listened to what we wanted and incorporated everything beautifully. We had a small, intimate, non-religious ceremony that lasted about 20 minutes with readings that we selected and Arissa's wonderful love story that she crafted for us. We contacted her after seeing other glowing reviews on the internet and we were not disappointed. :)

  • Arissa told our story as if she had known us for several years. Not only did she provide an authentic love story, but her calming presence was exactly what we needed on our wedding day. She was also able to accommodate our mixed Persian/American ceremony with ease. I would definitely recommend her as an officiant!

  • We are so happy that we worked with Arissa for our wedding day! From the first time we met her, she was so kind and easy to talk to. Arissa sent us numerous options for readings, vows and the ring exchange. The best part of working with Arissa, by far, was that she really took the time to get to know our relationship. Hearing the personalized 'love story' for the first time will always be one of my happiest memories. We feel very lucky to have met Arissa!

  • Having Arissa perform our ceremony was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. She was very responsive, and very helpful when it came to writing our vows. She pulled together a beautiful and personal ceremony that reflected the both of us. Dealing with 'wedding vendors' can be stressful but she made the whole process so easy and stress free! We couldn't have asked for better.

  • It was really important to me and my husband to have a heartfelt ceremony unique to us, but we were worried we wouldn't be able to find an officiant who could make that happen. After our first meeting with Arissa, we had no doubts that she was the perfect officiant for our wedding! Throughout the entire wedding planning process, Arissa was exceptionally responsive and organized - sending us reminders of when we needed to complete certain tasks, like getting our marriage license. She was extremely flexible and gave us a ton of options to make our ceremony the perfect reflection of our relationship. Before the wedding, we were able to review a draft of the ceremony that included everything except our "love story", which Arissa saved as a surprise on our wedding day. The entire ceremony was BEAUTIFUL, and it was so special to hear someone capture our love story so perfectly and share it with our guests. After the wedding, the first comment we heard from most of our guests was "WOW that wa... Read more

  • Arissa was able to take two separate questionnaires from my wife and I and create a beautiful seamless story of us. It was touching, humorous, and genuine. She was able to make our special day even more special.

  • We talked to many possible officiants before settling on Arissa, and we couldn't be happier with our choice! We got so many comments from friends and family about how much they loved the ceremony -- Arissa's warmth and eloquence, and the perfect balance of traditional elements with a spin unique to us. Leading up to the wedding, Arissa set my husband and I each a series of questions about our relationship, which she turned into a part of the ceremony called the "Love Story" that we didn't hear until the wedding. Our guests loved hearing about our journey together, and we both found ourselves laughing and tearing up along with them. If you're looking for a warm and thoughtful ceremony that will fill the room with love, then you definitely want to talk to Arissa!

  • Wow! Where to start. My now husband and I couldn’t have been happier to have Arissa officiate our wedding. When we first met Arissa we were taken away by how warm and sincere she came across. She took the time to get to know us and learn what we wanted in our ceremony. We instantly knew she was the right choice. Leading up to the wedding she sent my husband and I each a list of questions which she used to craft our own unique “love story”. She also helped us with our wedding vows because we wanted to write our own. On our wedding day it was such a special experience hearing what Arissa composed for us. We got so many complements from our family and friends afterwards. More than one person said there wasn’t a dry eye in the audience. My sisters also said it was one of the best ceremonies they have ever heard. Thank you Arissa for helping make our wedding one of the best days ever.

  • From the very first phone call we were blown away with Arissa’s kindness and professionalism. We felt lost when it came to finding an officiant as we planned our wedding. We were also worried it wouldn’t be personal if we hired someone we had never met. Arissa eliminated those doubts the moment we met her. She truly cared about our love story and what we hoped for in our wedding. Her warmth and genuine personality made us so comfortable. She offered endless readings for us to browse so we could help create the ceremony we hoped for. When it all came together for the first time on our wedding day we were both filled with emotions. Even though we had met Arissa six months prior she told our love story as if she had been part of it through the years. She engaged our family and led the most beautiful ceremony. We received endless complements and so many of our guests said that it was the most personal heartwarming ceremony they had ever witnessed. Weeks after the wedding we received a ... Read more

  • My husband and I chose Arissa to be our officiant, as she takes the time to get to know both the soon to be bride and groom individually as well as a couple. Arissa is able to deliver a unique wedding ceremony that is comfortable for the couple and is heartfelt. She is a calming presence for the duration of the ceremony as emotions run high on wedding day. My husband and I were so fortunate to have Arissa as our officiant. We highly recommend her.

  • Arissa was amazing!! You can read how many five star reviews she has, and there’s a reason for that! I highly recommend her to anyone getting married - her ceremony is very personal and tuned to your love story - it’s not out of the box.

  • We are so grateful that Arissa chose to be part of our wedding. It was truly a pleasure to work with her and have her be a part of our wedding day. When we asked her to officiate our small ceremony, we did not realize how much personal time and effort she would invest into drafting our ceremony for us. The finished product far exceeded our expectations. Arissa is a true professional, who has clearly found her calling in life. The care that she puts into her work is evident. Even though we never met her in person before the wedding, it did not feel like she was a stranger because she is such a sincere and genuinely kind person. Our guests thought that we had known her prior to the ceremony because of how personal the ceremony was. For all of these reasons and more, we cannot imagine a better person to have officiated our wedding than Arissa and highly recommend working with her.
