  • Going with Shari for our ceremony was the best decision we made for our wedding! The ceremony is the most important part of the big day, and Shari lives by that! She is a professional, offering wedding expertise and ceremonial resources, consistently making recommendations and providing guidance -- yet, still allowing the couple to customize to their liking and make final decisions. We significantly downsized our wedding due to COVID and live-streamed the ceremony for our friends and family at home. Our loved ones are STILL raving that it was the best ceremony they have ever witnessed. It was professional, joyful, and had many personal touches. I highly suggest you select Shari for your ceremony!

  • From start to finish, Shari was absolutely phenomenal to work with. Throughout the entire COVID-19 pandemic, Shari was communicative, professional, and flexible. We had to reschedule the entire wedding three times and she was helpful each time. Shari was outstanding during the planning stages of the ceremony and during the ceremony itself. If you are a couple in Northeast Ohio, look no further for your officiant.

  • From start to finish Shari made the experience so effortless and stress free. I couldn't have asked for anything more than her services provided us throughout the planning process, the rehearsal and day of the wedding. Shari took charge of the rehearsal and covered every single detail that was needed to make the day perfect. The day of her delivery of our vows was perfect! Even when we messed up, she made light of the situation and our nerves to make it flow so effortlessly! I am so happy with our decision to hire Shari and would recommend her to anyone! Thank you so much Shari for making our day perfect!

  • I can't say enough about Shari. If there were 6 stars, I'd still want to give her 7. Over the last year I meticulously planned my reception, and admittedly neglected the ceremony. Other than the order of the bridal party, the songs, and the wording, I hadn't given it much thought. How does my mom, who was walking me down the aisle give me to the groom? when do I pass my flowers? Who escorts the mother of groom, grandmother of groom down aisle and when? Shari came prepared with answers for EVERYTHING and made sure we knew EXACTLY where to go and where to be. After the rehearsal, ALL nerves were gone. I didn't have the opportunity to meet Shari before booking her. I think she's a little pricier than others....Trust me...its WORTH it. I went with her because the others reviews were amazing and we didn't have time to get to Cleveland (I was an out of town bride) before having to make a decision. Shari immediately sent us a TON of choices for wording. We picked some of hers, com... Read more

  • Shari was our officiant at our wedding on Sept. 14, 2019. She was absolutely wonderful from the time we have contact her all the way to the end of the ceremony and beyond. Very helpful in guiding us to chose the wording for the ceremony and to answer all our questions. Our wedding day to the ceremony was pretty crazy. But Shari was a wonderful and much needed oasis of calm, smiles, kindness and practical all in one. We are so happy that we chose her to be our officiant. We are highly recommending her service.

  • Shari was very helpful throughout the entire process. She had so many variations for ceremony wordings and readings, from religious to non religious. She often checked in and sent us several copies of our personalized ceremony, in order for us to be certain it was how we wanted it. After the wedding she even sent us instructions on how to proceed with name changing, which was very helpful.

  • We were married on Sept 7, 2019 and had the most wonderful experience with Celebrations by Shari from beginning to end!! Brian was our officiant and we couldn't have been more pleased with him!! He was extremely helpful, professional, friendly, patient, prompt and responsive. We especially loved all the wording choices and being able to tailor our ceremony to what we personally wanted. Celebrations by Shari will not disappoint!

  • Brian was our officiant. A total professional from our first phone call to our last handshake. Full and open communication; accommodating with our rehearsal time; patient throughout the rehearsal; walked us through every little detail; worked well with the site director, planner, photographer, and wedding party; assisted us with the legal/bureaucratic aspects of the marriage; and conducted the ceremony flawlessly. Don’t hesitate to use Celebrations by Shari in general, and Brian in particular!

  • Shari is AMAZING! We knew the moment we met her that we wanted her to marry us. She is so warm and funny! She walked us through the entire process and was always there for questions. We were pretty nervous about reciting our vows and Shari helped us through and made us feel very comfortable. We also had her help with our rehearsal which I originally thought we didn’t need but I am so so thankful we did because it made our day go smoothly and our wedding party was more confident with what they were supposed to do. Shari is a true professional and we’re so grateful to have part of our day. She also added a personal touch for us and that made our ceremony even more special. After the wedding I received guidance on next steps for name change and how to get a copy of our marriage certificate. I highly recommend Shari for your wedding, she made the ceremony absolutely perfect! Thank you Shari! Big hug! Jenelle and Kevin
