  • 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!

  • Ceremony is next Monday, contacted Shari 10 days ago and her response time was great. So far, everything has been very smooth and her husband is a photographer and is available to take pictures. Both are very reasonably priced. I can't wait to meet her and to thank her

  • Shari is great to work with! She is very helpful throughout the whole process & is sure to make your wedding special. She sent us ceremony wording options to chose from & we were able to choose the wording options that we liked best. We had her officiate our small, intimate ceremony in my parents backyard, to make our marriage legal in the US before getting married in Mexico. We did not have a rehearsal, but when Shari arrived at our home, she made an instant connection with us & our guests. Shari did an amazing job officiating our ceremony (even with our dog walking around us at the beginning haha) & Shari never skipped a beat! All of our guests commented on how lovely our ceremony was too. It was short but meaningful, and exactly what we were looking for! After the ceremony, Shari followed up promptly with mailing our marriage certificate and instructions on how to change my name. We 100% recommend Shari as an officiant for your wedding ceremony! Cheers!!

  • Five stars! Shari is a professional! She is organized, responsive and so kind. So trilled we had her for both rehearsal and ceremony. Definitely a calming force for myself and the groom. We were able to personalize the ceremony to exactly what we wanted. Thank you Shari!

  • I'm thankful we found and chose Shari to officiate our ceremony. We had a small intimate wedding in our home. Shari helped us form our ceremony script by offering several examples and ideas. She responded quickly and was able to chat on the phone to answer my questions (and ease my stress). She arrived at our home early and ready to guide the ceremony. Shari is a lovely person and I would recommend her to any couple.

  • Shari made my wife and me feel like much more than a temporary client. We could tell upon first meeting her that she truly cares about your day and making it special. She provided an entire playbook of options for the ceremony and verbiage including her attire. On the rehearsal day, she had answered for all of our questions including silly concerns. She was promptly on time to the rehearsal and the big day and helped calm nerves and concerns throughout the entire process. She made our day absolutely perfect.

  • 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
