  • Arissa is absolutely incredible!! I first became aware of Arissa and how amazing she is when I had the pleasure of being a bridesmaid in a wedding of one of my best friends. Arissa provided my friend with one of the most beautiful ceremonies. I remember going up to the bride after the ceremony and asking her if Arissa was her aunt or a family member I had never met before because there was something about the way Arissa shared the couple’s love story that made me think that she had to have known the couple very well. She was so personable and really focused on all the details of the couple’s love story. My friend received many compliments on the ceremony so when it was my turn to get married, I knew right away that I wanted Arissa to be apart of my big day! When you meet Arissa, there is something about her that is so calm and welcoming. You can tell that she really cares about her clients. She is a great listener and so it was no surprise when she was able to tie in our love story... Read more

  • Arissa was very easy to work with. We met up with her once before the wedding and we liked how calm and friendly she was. We absolutely adored the love story that she wrote for our wedding ceremony. It was a fun touch that we hadn't heard the love story until the wedding. The ceremony felt very personalized to us. All of our guests commented on how they really appreciated hearing our love story of how we met and got engaged. Would highly recommend Arissa if you are looking for a personalized wedding ceremony.

  • Arissa was the perfect officiant for my wedding. It truly was "a wedding with heart." I planned the ceremony from out of town, and Arissa was communicative by facetime and attentive email replies. She interviews the bride and groom to weave their love story, which was such a highlight for our ceremony. I received so many compliments about how touching the story was and it became a conversation piece for the guests during the reception. She helped with vow writing and, for my mother, the toast speech. She is lovely, and I would highly recommend her!

  • 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!

  • Arissa was a complete joy to work with during our wedding! My husband and I wanted a personalized, non-religious ceremony but did not want the pressure of designing a ceremony all on our own. Arissa provided the perfect solution! She gave us outlines and choices of readings and other pieces to include in the ceremony so we could select what was meaningful to us. She also helped us with our vow writing and read our vows prior the wedding to ensure that they had similar vibes (meaning our vows were still a surprise to each other on the day of, which was priceless). But the best part was the individualized love story that Arissa crafted for us. We elected to keep the love story a surprise until the actual ceremony and it was a wonderful experience fo both us and our friends/family to hear our story as part of the ceremony. We received so many compliments on the ceremony and how meaningful and personalized it was. Many of our guests asked if Arissa was related to us in some way! Arissa was... Read more

  • 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.
