  • I've been to a lot of weddings and my mother is an officiant, so I like to think I have some discretion. My wife and I had a very stressful marriage process. We planned it in a week, during the pandemic, and it was too ambitious. We found HLWT just days before the wedding and hired them to officiate. We met with the director over zoom and suddenly, everything was okay. Liz took all the weight off our shoulders and managed to reassure us, focus our ideas, strategize, and tease out our love story, all at once.  We were truly freaking out and Liz was a rock. We literally sent her our vows the morning of the wedding and she rolled with it. (but don't do that.) The ceremony Liz crafted for us was elegant, magical, and heartbreakingly beautiful. She captured our love and values so perfectly, it felt like we had hired a mind reader. No joke - in the middle of my own wedding I turned to her and shouted "GOD YOU'RE GOOD!" During the reception, some of our guests told me they were glad I... Read more

  • Liz was absolutely incredible to work with! From our first introduction call to the day of the ceremony, she put us completely at ease and offered her assistance whenever possible. She clearly understood our story and translated it into a beautiful ceremony. As our wedding took place during Covid, we had a zoom video as part of our day and her team helped figure out technical difficulties so it would not make me worry, which was so appreciated! I highly recommend her services - our day would not have been the same without her!

  • Liz married us this most recent weekend. We were actually really looking for something quick and simple and reached out to Liz and loved the look for the 'Just make it legal' ceremony. From the very first contact we had with Liz, we were really blown away by how dedicated she was to getting to know us, understand our story and make the ceremony feel personalized and special. It felt like she was charging us for something simple and small, yet giving us so much more. Her dedication to making it feel extremely special, made us realize we actually did want this too (even though it was a legal ceremony). We had never really stopped to think about our story from start to finish and hearing Liz tell it at the ceremony, was truly one of the best experiences of our lives. Couldn't recommend Liz more - she was the perfect mix of professional, friendly and sincere.

  • Liz is amazing. We had to cancel our wedding due to covid-19, but we still wanted to be husband and wife. Liz responded to us immediately to get us married with less than 24 hours notice, and I can't tell you how much I appreciate her! We did our ceremony out in Fort Greene Park, a special place to us both, and Liz's words were perfect. She learned our love story, our parents love story, and who we are in such a short time and incorporated it seamlessly into the ceremony. My husband's parents are metallurgists, and she incorporated that so well- it felt so special and it was something they really loved. I really can't thank her enough, to give us our marriage in a time like this. Thank you, Liz! You changed our life, and your personality exudes comfort and warmth and also liveliness! Thank you from the depths of our hearts!

  • Liz was a wonderful officiant. Sincerely, I could not have expected anything else to make our ceremony more perfect. She succeeded in capturing the essence of our relationship and our personalities in an incredibly limited amount of time (we reached out to her only a week before the big day)! And she turned our socially distant ceremony into a work of art. She is an incredible writer, very methodical, well organized and flexible. She is also a very caring person. She also made our family members who were joining us remotely because of Covid-19 feel as if they were with us. A real accomplishment. I recommend her to any couple!

  • Simply put, Liz was amazing! She was kind, supportive, accommodating, and genuinely interested in learning our love story. She enjoys being a conduit of love for couples and it shows in the way she crafts the foundation of the ceremony. Because of the personal details and nuances wedged throughout the exchanging of our vows, so many of our friends and family assumed Liz was one of our long time friends. My partner and I were married via Zoom and many of the comments in Zoom chat were about our loved ones not expecting to be so touched by an online wedding. Liz's talent for storytelling helped turn what can be a somewhat impersonal medium of communication, into one that brought us and our loved ones closer together.

  • Liz was AMAZING. We were in time crunch since we had to postpone our wedding and decided to pivot the plans and do a virtual wedding. She was all hands on deck when it came to putting this together. She took the time to get to know us as a couple and as individuals- it all felt very genuine unlike other officiants that I had previously talked to. She knew all the right questions to ask, jumped on a few zoom calls and gathered all the info needed to write a beautiful ceremony. We did the ceremony over zoom where it was just my now husband and I physically together and everyone else joined us virtually. I would've never thought that people would get emotional over zoom but Liz did a great job setting up our story, our fam story and the rest of the ceremony to include us and some family members. So many people thought she was a friend of ours because she spoke in such a way that you would think she knew us personally for a long time. We also opted to do our vows with her - it was extra bu...

  • As a New York ex-pat, I’ve followed Liz’s blog (Brooklyn I’m Trying) for a long time and love her style and prose. So when my fiancé (now husband!) and I were looking for an officiant that could tie in some religious elements, family stories and our background into a ceremony I knew Liz would be the best fit. She worked with us before the ceremony to identify the important items we wanted to incorporate, and things that we hadn’t even thought of, either. We were looking for something heartfelt and meaningful but also brief. No small task! To make it harder, my mom passed away 2 years ago and I wanted to have a nod to her that wouldn’t make me burst into tears. We could not have dreamed of a better officiant. Liz coordinated with the DJ to get mic’ed and set up while I was running around before the ceremony: I didn’t have to worry about a thing. And the ceremony. She weaved the Red Rocks setting, our families, heritage and story together in a way that was so perfectly... Read more

  • We hired Liz to officiant our wedding in Italy this past summer. We worked with her for 6 months beforehand and she made the process of writing and creating our ceremony feel relaxed and enjoyable. She asked really interesting questions and always came with unique ideas when we would meet to plan the ceremony script. She also worked closely with our wedding planner on logistics and my planner said she was amazing to work with. Liz’s ceremony she wrote for us felt like poetry - her writing is absolutely beautiful. We felt our love was truly represented and our guests were celebrated and appreciated with her words. We are non-denominational and wanted to find someone who could create a ceremony that wasn’t religious focused, but did represent our families and our spirituality. We did include some traditional religious elements which she was great at incorporating. She actually hand wrote her script for us which we still have and love reading again! I definitely recom...
