  • 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!

  • Shari was our wedding officiant and was more than we could ever have imagined. She was always very responsive and has tons of wording options which she shared with us to choose for her to use during the ceremony. Shari handled the rehearsal and took charge in the most professional and fun way which left us more than confident the ceremony would be perfect. It was the most important part of the day and the part we felt most at ease about because of Shari. We highly recommend!

  • Shari was amazing! I had no idea where to start when it came to finding an officiant and started reading reviews on Shari and decided to give her a chance. I can honestly say from the first initial contact with her I knew I would not have to stress about anything. She gave us a packet full of wording options and let us customize whatever we wanted. She even added personal touches that really made it special to us. She even handled everything for the rehearsal to make sure everything ran smoothly the day of. I got so many compliments on on our ceremony I would highly recommend Shari.

  • Like so many couples, my husband and I had our 2020 wedding impacted by COVID. We were originally supposed to get married in Yosemite, but a few months before the wedding, we made the difficult decision to move everything to Ohio so our families wouldn't have to travel. We were able to find Shari to officiate via Weddingwire, and we couldn't be happier with that choice. Before the wedding, she made everything super simple by giving us a lot of choice in the ceremony wording, while also providing us with a lot of guidance. On the day of the wedding, we were both a little nervous, but Shari's professionalism calmed us down and the wedding was perfect! I would highly recommend her to any couple!

  • We were very pleased with Shari as our officiant for our wedding. Everything was very organized and communication was prompt. Shari makes everything easier by providing example wording and was willing to help in any way to make the planning process easier. We couldn’t be happier with the way our ceremony turned out and we are forever grateful for celebrations by Shari.

  • Our experience with Celebrations by Shari was wonderful from the beginning to the end. Brian was our officiant. He was very professional, friendly, helpful, and answered all of our questions promptly. We were provided with wording choices which we loved because we were able to tailor our wedding to how we wanted. Our wedding was short and to the point. Brian helped us make our ceremony perfect!

  • Shari was very easy to work with and very professional. We weren’t sure how we were going to do our ceremony and it was so easy to pick what you wanted from here suggestions. The ceremony was beautiful and I appreciate how easy going Shari was. Thank you for making our day perfect.

  • 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!

  • From the start, Shari was the most friendly vendor we worked with during our wedding planning. Shari was happy to meet us before booking with her, and made us feel extremely comfortable about the whole ceremony process. During this meet, Shari was happy to answer all of our questions, even if they pertained to an area outside of her services. After our initial meeting, Shari kept in communication with us, answering any questions that came up during our planning phase. She also provided us with multiple wordings for each part of the ceremony that we were able to change and use if we didn't want to write our own. The wordings she helped us create for our ceremony were absolutely beautiful and made us even more excited about our big day. For rehearsal, Shari was the BIGGEST help. Where our ceremony director made us feel rushed and unwanted, Shari made sure to take her time with us to make us feel prepared and comfortable. On wedding day, Shari arrived early and even helped the groomsmen w... Read more

  • 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 recommended to me by my boss whose word I value and she loved Shari doing her vow renewal. She is super sweet, charismatic and genuine. She was very easy to work with. Most of my communication was through email with a couple of phone calls for some reassurance. I didn’t meet her til my ceremony and everything was perfect. Definitely recommend for anyone who wants someone very down to earth and passionate about what they do. She’ll make your day extra special for you. Especially the times we are in currently, she made it happen the best way possible.
