  • If I only had one word to use to describe Laurie it would be INCREDIBLE. She helped us plan our wedding in 10 days on the beach at Siesta Key. She gave us the questionnaires and with our answers wrote the most beautiful vows that couldn’t have represented our feelings for each other any better as if she knew us for years. She found the spot on the beach doing her own drive around and found the best parking for our family. She gave us the most meaningful ideas for our wedding and incorporated everything we wanted. Her personal experiences brought so much into our wedding. Every time I sent her a message or email she responded almost immediately. Her joy and happiness for us showed when she read our vows. She kept us all calm when our family was running late. She came to the hotel where I was getting ready to make sure I didn’t have any other questions and that all was well. She directed us with all of the paperwork and took care of submitting the license for us. Laurie THANK... Read more

  • We just celebrated our 20th anniversary and decided to renew our vows on the beach in Naples, FL at sunset. Laurie created the most beautiful and meaningful ceremony for us. Our Dads have both passed away and our Moms couldn't be there with us so she created a loving and thoughtful blessing that included all of them! Our 2 teenage daughters were there with us and my sister was there too. We cherished each moment on the beach. Laurie put so much love into our vow renewal and we felt it! We were beaming all night! We couldn't image having anyone else renew our vows for us, thank you Laurie!

  • Search no further for the perfect celebrant. Laurie pours her heart into her work and truly celebrates the power of love and commitment alongside each couple. Laurie is kind, professional, and goes way above and beyond to get to know her clients and create a totally custom ceremony. She will bring more love, joy and meaning to your event than money could ever buy. I couldn't recommend her more!

  • Where do I even begin..Laurie was absolutely incredible. She helped guide me every step of the way. I planned our elopement in a month & a half, it was very small but any questions I had concerning the ceremony, our license, other vendors, etc, Laurie was there to help. She was so kind & upbeat, happy, she really made me feel so special & I could tell how invested she was in our wedding. The morning of our ceremony, we met for coffee & I felt like I had known her for years. She wrote a beautiful reading/vows & did an amazing job. It was so intimate & perfect. She even included our two best friends in the ceremony & they as well felt like they had known her forever. She gave us a copy of our ceremony & our questionnaire answers in a folder with her special touch. Something I will treasure forever & will look back on to remember our beautiful day. I highly recommend Laurie. You will not be disappointed. I can not say enough good things about her & her work 💛

  • We were very lucky to have found Laurie as an officiant for our wedding in Indian Rocks Beach, FL in April 2021. We are from Wisconsin and wanted to get married on the beach so we were planning our wedding from out of state. Laurie was so responsive with all of our questions and super accommodating!! She wrote our whole ceremony using a questionnaire that we filled out so it felt very special and super personalized. She sent several drafts to make sure it was exactly what we wanted. All of our guests said they loved that our ceremony was so unique to us and that they had happy tears the whole time. We had a larger wedding party so wanted to do a wedding rehearsal the night before and she was totally accommodating and did really well instructing our large group. We highly recommend Laurie as an officiant!! She is truly the best and we couldn't have been more lucky to have her!!

  • Where do I even begin!? Choosing an officiant is an important piece of your big day, and Laurie made our ceremony special, magical, and full of happy tears. She pays attention to every detail and makes sure that your wedding is everything you want it to be. In the short time we worked with her, she captured our essence and put together the perfect ceremony for us including a beautiful "blessing of the rings" which involved our parents infusing their wishes for us into our rings. We could not have asked for a more thoughtful experience. Laurie made it perfectly "us."

    Kristyne Oh my goodness! Thank you ! I absolutely loved working with you two and it was such a pleasure to do this ceremony. You both were so sweet and you looked stunning! I wish you both so much happiness and love 💕 Laurie

  • Laurie was magnificent! She went above and beyond for us in every way possible. We traveled from Indiana, so you could imagine that made everything a little more stressful than normal. She knocked it out of the park. She was kind, courteous, and extra helpful down to the last detail. Highly recommended Laurie!!

  • Laurie is the sweetest, kindest soul I have ever met! Her writing skills and passion for what she does shows in the words she speaks. Laurie takes your love story and crafts so eloquently the journey that has brought you to stand in front of her. Laurie performed our ceremony on our backyard lanai with a small gathering of friends. We couldn't have been happier to have her officiate our special day! I would highly recommend her if you are looking for a truly personal and special ceremony.

  • I cannot say enough amazing things about Laurie Chandler. From the first time we met she was so genuine and loving. She took the time to get to know me and my finance and write the perfect ceremony to tell our story in the way we wanted it told. She had amazing insight and ideas to bring our love story to life for our family and friends! You will be so happy to have Laurie standing between you as you say I do!
