  • It took me almost a month to be able to write a review about Love and Light Officiants. My wife and I wed on July 26th 2020 with Reverend Rachel as our officiant. To our surprise and in my honest opinion, her services were nothing like the 20 plus page description packet she sent out. She did not give clear instructions and gaslighted us while being held accountable. More tellingly, she announced my wife and I, two women, as Mr. and Mrs. Our parents, friends and family members were shocked and visibly upset. Days later my wife sent Rachel an email calling her attention to what I already communicated on night of July 26th. In my honest opinion, her apology was not genuine based on the way she gaslighted me during and after our wedding by referring to her contract. I can understand a mistake, but its unethical and unprofessional to not respond genuinely when you have made a detrimental mistake. Too, even if this has never happened before, it and you should have held yourself accountab... Read more

    Dear Dawanna and Aja,  From the moment we met I had a special place in my heart for both of you and deep admiration for the community service you do. I am so very sorry that I announced you incorrectly. As I stated in my sent emails and texts, it was correct on the paper but that is not what came out of my mouth. ..I have listed our responses below with the date each was sent... Wishing you both all of life’s blessings.. August 2, 2020 Dear Aja,I just received your email. I am very sorry that you did not receive my text messages Monday morning. I am also sorry that I introduced you incorrectly. It is a big moment. It is a moment that we prepared for. I made a mistake and I’m very sorry about that. As you can see from these two text messages from last Monday morning I did respond. After I read Dawanna’s text early Monday morning I was shocked. I immediately called my videographer and he confirmed the mistake on the audio. Again I’m very sorry.  Monday July 27, 2020 Dear Dawanna and Aja,I am so very sorry to hear this however I appreciate you letting me know. From the first moment we spoke I had a special place in my heart for both of you. I am deeply saddened to hear this. Unfortunately, after reviewing the audio, you are correct. I have Mrs. and Mrs. in the script, but that’s not what came out of my mouth. I am terribly sorry.  Saturday July 25, 2020 at 11:37am Good afternoon Dawanna and Aja!I hope you are enjoying this very special time with each other, preparing for your wedding day tomorrow. Please take a moment to truly appreciate this moment and each other. Having the Lord in the center of your lives is a gift that you give to one another every day! It is an honor and a privilege to be your officiant. Thank you! Much love, Rev. Rachel Response from Aja Johnson: Rachel thank you so much for all you've done thus far for us! we are two people that believe in God's divine connections and he definitely pointed us in the right direction when choosing our Officiant! It wasn't just your professionalism that allowed us to choose but your sweet spirit and love for seeing the joy of others in love that let us know you were the one. Thank you for all your kind words and going above and beyond for us. Response from Dawanna Kennedy: Aja put that perfectly. Thank you for everything you/ve done and will do.

  • After reaching out to several officiants during our wedding planning process, it was such a blessing to find Rachel Addonizio of Love and Light Wedding Officiants. She was not only responsive and professional, but so friendly and personable! She made my fiance and I feel like we knew her forever! Our original wedding date needed to be postponed due to the pandemic. But Rachel was so flexible and easy to work with during the rescheduling process. We decided to still get married this year on our original date and Rachel was so accommodating. She helped us create a personalized experience for our 'mini ceremony' and made it feel so special. She was so warm and friendly to all of our guests and we received so many compliments on the ceremony she performed. I cannot wait to see her again at our rescheduled ceremony/reception!

    Hi Justine and Doug! We did it!! We created a beautiful ceremony, together! I felt so honored and humbled to be a part of your love story and your family. Everyone was so warm and welcoming! You did a great job with the tent, the centerpieces and your amazing caterer!! Looking forward to seeing everyone again next year! Much love, Rev Rachel

  • Love and Light wedding Officiants Elopement were the best choice for my husband and I! I originally had them booked for a wedding that was cancelled due to Covid, they were amazing with rescheduling that for us!! And when we decided last minute to get married a couple of weeks ago Rachel was a huge help in making that happen! Rachel was so sweet and professional and she works closely with you in planning your ceremony. My husband and I loved her!! Even my family was impressed by her. If you’re looking for a good officiant get in contact with Love and Light!!

    Thank you so much Adrianna! I really appreciate your beautiful review of our services and I’m so glad we could accommodate you and your new wedding date with an outdoor mini wedding ceremony! Much love, Rachel ❤️❤️

  • We booked Rachel in 2019 for our 05/2020 wedding. She met with us via Skype so we could get a feel for each other, and she had us laughing the whole time. She is very kind and asked interesting questions about our families and relationship. They sent us a workbook so we could help build a ceremony that feels comfortable for us - religious vs non religious, including family members or not, different additional tributes to each other. We did have to postpone our wedding in light of the pandemic, and the Love and Light team has been very flexible as we rescheduled. We are looking forward to having Love and Light officiate our commitment in front of family and friends in the spring. I also enjoy following their social media, as they are strong proponents of marriage equality and showcase how future couples grow their families with (fur)babies. I would wholeheartedly recommend Love and Light Officiants to any couple.

    Well this is a first! Thanks Brittany Dee for taking the time to post such a beautiful review BEFORE your upcoming ceremony. We appreciate you recognizing our hard work to accommodate you and Nathan and all of our couples during this time of uncertainty. Every couple has their own love story and we strive to honor each one. I am looking forward to May 2021 when we can create the perfect and memorable ceremony for you and Nathan! Stay safe and be well. Love, Rev. Rachel

  • Working with Love and Light Wedding Officiants was truly a pleasure! Because of this amazing group, especially Reverend Rachel, I was able to marry the love of my life this past Saturday, October 10th, 2020 (despite a global pandemic being tossed into the mix of typical wedding stresses and/or snafus). We were so fortunate to have such an incredible officiant. Reverend Rachel is fantastic in so many ways. She is an exceptional communicator. From reaching out to us via phone, email, and FaceTime and making herself available through various mediums at all hours, to sending us, not one, but two different workbooks to help my husband and I create our perfect ceremony, something that was personal and that truly resonated with us as a couple, to answering all of our questions thoroughly and in a timely fashion. Reverend Rachel is very genuine and sincere. She effortlessly extended so much empathy and compassion, particularly during these trying times. Sadly, we dealt with a few vendo... Read more

    Dear Christine, Thank you so much! In every conversation we had, I could feel your love for Todd and I just knew, together, we would make your ceremony a personal and memorable one! The weather was beautiful and you made the Gazebo your own! With all of your friends and family present, I felt so honored to be a part of your celebration! Thank you for your kindness and for taking the time to write this glowing review. I can’t wait to celebrate your love again in 2021!!! Sending you and Todd lots of love, Rev. Rachel and our team.

  • Reverend Rachel is truly such a kind and loving person and it showed right from our initial conversation. She did her best to accommodate and make our ceremony exactly what we wanted. She was also able to explain the whole marriage certificate process clearly! We can’t thank her enough!

    responded with the following comments.

    You are so kind Ivette! It’s the teacher in us! We try our best to explain the entire process because the marriage license laws are very confusing in all three states, NJ, NY and PA! It was such an honor to be welcomed into your family and to officiate your ceremony and your love with Robert. Wishing you all the best on your journey together. Love, Rachel and the LL Team

  • Love and Light was the perfect choice for us. Sadly we were one of the many couples effected by the pandemic who had their wedding plans disrupted. When it came time to selecting a new date Rachel was very comforting and accommodating with rescheduling and still marrying us on our intended date in a small ceremony. Absolutely recommend!!

    Thank you so much for your kind words Kristin! We do our best to make it work!! Looking forward to September! Love, Rachel

  • Deborah officiated our wedding on September 4th and our ceremony was beyond perfect. It was like Deborah was an old friend who knew us for years and always had a beautiful smile on her face. Obviously 2020 has been a tough year and we had to postpone our wedding several times, which was heartbreaking enough, but we finally cut our guest list and decided it was time to get married and move our with our life together. Throughout the entire process, Deborah, Lydia and Rachel were so supportive, organized and flexible to make sure we got the love and answers to our questions that we needed to move forward. Do yourself a favor and book one of these ladies for your ceremony! You won’t be disappointed.

    Dear Kristen & Burak, It was my honor and joy to officiate your wedding!! I wish you and your families every blessing life has to offer, always! Love, Deborah

  • From the moment I contacted Rachel my experience was beyond perfection. When I called her to discuss our wedding I had a bit of anxiety but her calmness and reassurance put my anxiety to rest. I had two weeks from the time I called her until our wedding day (talk about short notice). She helped us the entire way through and explained everything In detail. The day of our wedding was perfect and Rev. Rachel was a large contribution to that. We highly recommend her!!

    responded with the following comments.

    Hi Meredith and Tom! Thank you so much! Gotta love the Gazebo! Meeting your families was such a pleasure. I could feel the happiness and love everyone has for both of you! Wishing you a lifetime of love and light! Rev. Rachel Addonizio

  • We were so happy to have chosen Love and Light as our wedding officiant. When our wedding plans were disrupted, postponed and changed Rev. Rachel was working with us every step of the way and supporting us through all the difficult decisions. We were so happy that we were able to have a small wedding ceremony on our original date and also postpone to have a larger celebration next year. They are the best!
