  • We were thrilled and excited to have Arissa do our wedding. She was very creative, intuitive and stitched everything together so beautifully. She is thoughtful and compassionate and considered everything that we thought was important. She has exquisite taste that makes it fun for everyone who is attending. We loved it that she was open to have the wedding out in the middle of the forest and all that goes along with that including a small trek up a trail. She was not just professional but added all the extra little touches that make these events special beyond words and meaningful enough to last a very long time. Thank you Arissa, for your coaching and your steering towards a beautiful event - the preparation, intent and follow through. Our wedding ceremony was not just an "I do", but was a moment that was precious for all who got to experience it. We would highly recommend her experience to anyone. We were awed at every turn and very impressed. We had a very non-tra... Read more

  • Arissa was absolute wonderful! She conducted an excellent service with all the parts we wanted. She was flexible, professional, light hearted, and engaging with our guests. She made our ceremony wonderful while keeping the focus on us and what we wanted. We wanted to add hand fasting before the ring exchange and Arissa was very knowledgeable about how to perform the hand fasting. She reviewed both our vows before and gave constructive feedback. We received many compliments on the beauty of our ceremony.

  • Arissa was great to work with. My husband and I knew as soon as we met her that she was the one we wanted to officiate our wedding. We felt very comfortable with her, and as though she really wanted to get to know us. We thought that was very important in someone who would be conducting one of the most sacred and intimate events of our lives! Arissa was also very professional and made the whole process go very smoothly, which is why we wanted to hire a professional officiant. We were very pleased with the ceremony Arissa created for us and will cherish the memory of our wedding day for a long time!

  • Arissa was so amazing. My husband and I both communicate very differently and I was a little concerned that I'd write these emotional vows, and his vows would be really generic. Arissa worked with both of us independently to ensure both of our vows were great, she asked amazing questions to get to know our story and to understand our relationship. She wrote a beautiful personal ceremony that brought tears to my AND my husband's eyes. I can't imagine a better ceremony, we had the best day thanks to Arissa!

  • Arissa was a phenomenal wedding officiant! She took the time to meet my husband and I before the wedding and right away, we could tell that her warm and calming presence was something that we could not do without on our wedding day. She was very professional and punctual with getting back to all of my emails leading up to our big day. She sent both my husband and I a questionnaire to fully understand our love for one another and weaved together a beautiful love story from our answers to share with our wedding guests during the ceremony. We got so many compliments on Arissa throughout the reception and several people asked if she was a relative because she seemed to know my husband and I so well! If you're looking for an officiant in the Seattle area, look no further than Arissa! I cannot recommend her enough!

  • Not only is Arissa the sweetest women on earth, she is professional, easy to communicate with, and incredibly talented at what she does. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect, so heartfelt and personalized to us as a couple. Arissa spent time getting to know us and crafted a ceremony that perfectly summarized our 10 years together and the love we have for each other. My uncle approached me after our wedding and said, "As a minister's son, I have seen hundreds of ceremonies, but none of them were as powerful as yours." Arissa takes care to truly represent the history of the couple and include the guests on their journey of love. Her words are sincere, her messages are powerful, and her delivery is eloquent. She is the perfect officiant!

  • Arissa did an amazing ceremony at our wedding! She exceeded our expectations by far as she captured what we were looking for and made it even better. She really was into her role, very calm and inspired by the moment. We could not have chosen anybody better than her. Our friends and family were also impressed with her participation. I highly recommended Arissa!!

  • Working with Arissa was such a great experience. She made planning the ceremony incredibly easy and worked with us to get all the details figured out. The best part was hearing the love story she wrote. It made the ceremony very personal and memorable.

  • Arissa perfectly captured our relationship through a story and created a wedding ceremony for us that was customized for our needs. We absolutely loved it and loved working with Arissa. I can't tell you how many compliments we received after the ceremony from family and friends on how much it captured us and our love. We met with Arissa twice before the ceremony. We told her what we didn't want--we aren't religious, we are a blended family with teens, and wanted to capture that in the ceremony, etc. She provided suggestions for readings and process. I had several folks afterward ask me to send them a copy of the Bob Marley reading we chose on love. We then each filled out a questionnaire about our partner, how we met, what we love about each other, etc. This with our meetings gave Arissa what she needed to write our story which was read at the ceremony. Neither of us read the story ahead of time so it would be a surprise when Arissa told it. I had people comment that they enjoyed watch... Read more

  • Hiring Arissa to be our officiant was one of the best decisions that we made during our wedding planning process! From the moment we had coffee with her to discuss our hopes from the wedding through to the ceremony itself, Arissa made the process easy, and helped create a memorable ceremony. After the initial meeting, we were given a few months to fill out a questionnaire that had us think about all the good times we’ve had together and why we were getting married. She was nice enough to share suggested readings and passages that we could chose from (of course we were free to suggest anything we wanted), but her collection was so varied that it allowed us to craft the ceremony that we wanted. With the questionnaire she created a ‘love-story’ that she read in the ceremony. We didn’t get to read it beforehand, so it was amazing how she blended our questionnaires into the perfect monologue. She really made it a perfect day for us. We could never have imagined the impact that s... Read more

  • Arissa was great to work with from the beginning. She was easy to get into contact with and was flexible about meeting with us multiple times to get to know both my husband and I. The ceremony components are all chosen by the bride and groom which helps you feel more connected to the ceremony and it feels more personalized. The way Arissa told our story during the ceremony perfectly captured how we met and feel about each other. She made it very fun and heart-felt to listen to for the couple and the guests. I would highly recommend A Wedding with Heart!

  • We "interviewed" and met with several officiant options for our ceremony and could not have been happier with our decision to work with Arissa! Our ceremony was the high point of our wedding day and I may be a little bias, but it was perfect. Arissa is great to work with through all steps and stages of the ceremony crafting process and surpassed every expectation we had - which were high and plentiful!
