    Thank you, Alexie. I'm so glad you were able to go ahead with the wedding, in spite of COVID. Everything turned out beautifully and having the ceremony "on deck" just made everything so much safer for everyone! Congrats to you and Alex!

  • Elizabeth did an excellent job at our wedding. We had to do a zoom wedding in lieu of our planned event. Elizabeth coordinates with us before hand to make sure the ceremony would go smoothly, and it did! Would recommend!

    Hi Elizabeth: I'm so glad you could go ahead with your wedding ceremony, even if your reception will now be in 2021. From all the people on the call, it seems as though you were surrounded by the important people in your lives, even if virtually. May you celebrate together next year!

  • Upon searching for an officiant for our non-traditional, and spiritual ceremony, Elizabeth was perfect. She extended herself to fit within our short lead time, and provided us with a unique ceremony, that was the cornerstone of our union and celebration. By encouraging us to take the time to tell our story, it lead to the most heartfelt ceremony. It included the details that our family and friends would later tell us they never knew; and it helped them feel closer to us, and happy to be a part of our celebration. The joy definitely carried through the night. In addition to her desire to create the right story, Elizabeth was also always quick to respond, delightful to speak with, and professional. She also offered much guidance in areas that we had no idea would be important. We would highly recommend Elizabeth for anyone looking to create a unique, and meaningful union!

    Your story truly became the centerpiece of your ceremony -- I'm so glad we took the time to explore what was going on in your lives when you met and how your two lives became inter-twined. I so enjoyed being "the Keeper of the Story," the "Teller of the Tale" -- what a sacred responsibility!

  • My husband and I wanted a brief ceremony, because we postponed our wedding due to COVID. We plan on saving the elaborate ceremony on our new wedding date. We were a little confused on the marriage process (one minute we wanted to marry in TN and then we found out the limitations), so Elizabeth explained to us what needed to happen. Elizabeth was very flexible and helped us quickly get a ceremony after we got our license. She made it very fun and memorable, even when we asked for a short ceremony. We would recommend her to a friend or family member.

    responded with the following comments.

    Hi Amy: I'm so glad you could go ahead with getting "legally married"; next year's ceremony will be very special, and I'm delighted that I will be officiating again! I look forward to the next nuptials!

    Susan and Kyu, At least the tears were happy tears! It was such a joyful occasion and I was so delighted to be a part of your celebration!

  • Many people asked me where I found the officiant for the wedding ceremony because they thought Elizabeth was amazing! I couldn't agree more with my guests, Elizabeth's story telling was perfect. It told how we met in a unique and funny way, and I could not be more happy with her services! Thank you so much Elizabeth!

    responded with the following comments.

    Tim, your love story is priceless -- it was easy to craft because you and Sanny provided so many descriptive details. I'm glad everyone enjoyed it -- I had fun being the narrator!

    Thanks so much, Jenny! We didn't have much time to work with, but the ceremony turned out beautifully and the venue was perfect. I'm so glad to hear the positive feedback!

  • Elizabeth is a consummate professional. She worked with us to develop a bespoke ceremony and was responsive & available via web conference to go through details. She also made the effort to come to a family event prior to the wedding to meet us & our families in person. You will not be disappointed. Elizabeth is incredibly well-spoken (lovely British accent), educated, worldly and kind - you will be very happy you chose her.

    Aimee, I so enjoyed connecting via Zoom before the wedding -- it made "Trans-Atlantic planning" so much easier! I must also commend you for all the effort you put into the ceremony. It was a great collaborative effort!

  • Elizabeth was a perfect choice for our wedding officiant. We were hoping to find an officiant who was able to create a personalized secular ceremony which also respected our families’ Christian and Muslim beliefs. Elizabeth did a wonderful job and truly exceeded our expectations (which were high to start with!). She impressed us right off the bat with her knowledge of religion and culture during our first conversation, so choosing her as our officiant was honestly an easy decision because we both felt so confident in her abilities right from the get-go. Through her detailed questionnaire, she was able to craft a highly personalized ceremony that we felt captured the essence of our 12-year relationship. We are so happy we chose Elizabeth and would highly recommend her to others as well!

    responded with the following comments.

    Hi Mustafa: It was delightful working with the two of you. It's not often that I have the opportunity to officiate at the wedding of a couple who have been together as long as you have -- I so enjoyed learning your "story" and somehow packaging it to highlight key moments and experiences in your relationship, along with the inter-religious elements. Thanks for your thoughtful review!

  • Dr. Elizabeth-Anne was the perfect choice for our special day! She had flexible options for all styles of ceremonies. We knew we were open to some humor in our ceremony and she delivered. I received many compliments on Dr. Elizabeth-Anne - from her tone to her lovely accent to her ability to making the ceremony funny and deep - she blew us away! Thank you!!

    Hi Jacquelyn: Your wedding was fun, elegant and touchingly romantic. I was so happy to be part of the celebration! Considering the last minute change of venue, you worked miracles in terms of pulling everything together!

  • We were looking for a wedding officiant that would provide a meaningful wedding ceremony for us, that wasn't particularly religious but included some personal rituals. Dr Elizabeth was exactly who we were looking for! She is fun and upbeat, and very experienced. The ceremony options and pricing was easy to understand. During planning, it was clear what we needed to do and by when, communicating with her over the phone and email (and in person) was straightforward, and she handled small hiccups on the big day with grace and humor. We were so glad to have her leading our ceremony and I'd highly recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant!

    responded with the following comments.

    Thanks, Kacie! Even bad weather and muddy terrain couldn't spoil the day! The Redfield Estate was a magnificent setting and the ceremony itself turned out beautifully! Much happiness to you and Jarrod!

  • Elizabeth worked with us to make sure the ceremony was exactly how we wanted it - from going over the overall structure of the ceremony, giving us many different options for each part of the ceremony, reaching out to us to make any revisions or edits if we were uncomfortable with anything. We had an idea for a unique unity ceremony and Elizabeth was able to fit it into the ceremony seamlessly. On the wedding day she was there with us, going over the script, making sure we were comfortable, and even made a last-minute edit at our request for us to speak our vows to each other without microphones - it made the ceremony that much more intimate. The ceremony itself went by smoothly, and Elizabeth's kind and warm voice was just great. We have been at other ceremonies where the officiant sounded almost like a TV announcer - you don't want that. We enjoyed it, and many of our guests came to us later to say they found it very touching.

    responded with the following comments.

    Thanks so much, Alex. I'm so glad that you and Vesi were pleased with the ceremony. As for speaking to each other privately when you exchanged love statements, that worked out beautifully and I will present this as an option to other couples who may be uncomfortable sharing at a personal level in front of their guests. It was so good that the two of you were involved in creating the ceremony -- this is the kind of collaboration that makes for a great script!
