  • Rev. Laura Cannon was wonderful. She married my husband and I in October of 2009. She had great ideas for our ceremony and was very easy to work with. She is super friendly and has a great sense of humor. She really listened to what was important to us as a couple and therefore our ceremony was very meaningful. Even though it rained on our outdoor wedding day, Rev. Laura still managed to make it a beautiful ceremony. We can't thank her enough for being such a big part of our special day. We would recommend her to any of our friends.

  • Rev.Laura was our favorite vendor to work with. Besides being a wonderful person, she also listened to our thoughts. She incorporated a wine and rose ceremony--something you don't usually see at weddings. I received so many compliments about the ceremony. Our guests thought it was a wonderfully presented ceremony. Rev. Laura even helped calm my husband down (who I was told was a nervous wreck, but I would have never known!) The ceremony is something we will remember forever.

  • MY FIANCEE AND I, THOUGH RAISED CATHOLIC, WERE NOT PRACTICING CATHOLICS AND DID NOT BELONG TO A CHURCH. WE WERE REFERRED TO REV. LAURA BY THE VANDIVER, WHERE WE WERE MARRIED. WE MET REV. LAURA IN HER HOME AND FOUND HER TO BE VERY WARM AND DOWN TO EARTH. SHE WAS NOT JUDGEMENTAL OF US FOR NOT BELONGING TO A CHURCH AND OPEN TO OUR IDEAS AND BELIEFS. SHE WAS INTERESTED IN US AND EVERYTHING CONCERNING OUR UPCOMING MARRIAGE. SHE WAS ALWAYS VERY ACCESSIBLE FOR QUESTIONS AND CONCERNS. A VERY MEMORABLE MOMENT FROM OUR WEDDING, CONCERNED MY FIANCEE'S 9 YR. OLD SON AND BEST MAN, WHO RIGHT BEFORE THE CEREMONY, INSISTED HE HAD TO GO TO THE BATHROOM. INSTEAD OF ALLOWING MY FIANCEE TO TAKE HIM AND RISK SEEING THE BRIDE, SHE TOOK HIM HERSELF! OUR GUESTS WILL NOT ONLY REMEMBER THE RECEPTION BUT THE CEREMONY AS WELL. SHE TALKED (NOT PREACHED) TO OUR GUESTS, AS WELL AS US, CONCERNING COMMON DIFFICULTIES WITH MARRIAGE. SHE INCLUDED OUR GUESTS IN THE CEREMONY. THEY WILL SURELY REMEMBER HER ROSE CEREMONY PO...

  • My husband and I were devastated when our original officicant canceled two weeks prior to our wedding. In search of a replacement, Rev. Laura came highly recommended by two of our vendors. Within very short notice, Rev. Laura quickly relieved our stress and put our mind at ease. She was genuine and professional the entire time. She is full of positive energy and high sprits. We really enjoyed the ceremony and how unique it was to our personality and spiritual level. We also received many compliments from our guests. Without a doubt, Rev. Laura was a main factor in making our day special.

  • Laura rocked the house! She was wonderful, personable, took the time to get to know us before the ceremony, and spoke as if she had known us for years. Our guests loved her speech and delivery, and thought she was amazing. It was casual and elegant all at the same time, which was exactly what we were going for. She was extremely responsive throughout the entire process. You can't go wrong in choosing her!

  • Reverend Laura is fantastic! Even when I changed the ceremony at literally the last minute - she accepted what I wanted and made the adjustments and the ceremony still appeared seamless. She is friendly and compassionate. We enjoyed working with her and I gladly recommend her.

  • Rev. Laura was amazing. With just meeting us she captured everything that about us in the ceremony and included our children. We had amazing feedback from our guests and how beautiful the ceremony was. She is fantastic and would recommend her especially since she made our ceremony "our own". She really touched our guests and us as well. Cyndi and Francis

  • Rev. Laura Cannon is an unbelievable officiant! One of our biggest concerns with our wedding was finding someone to perform the ceremony since we don't belong to a church. We were worried that it would seem impersonal and generic and it gave me the most anxiety of all the wedding decisions! Finding Rev. Laura put all of my worries away. Meeting with her in her home, I quickly realized that she was genuinely interested in getting to know the dynamics of the relationship I share with my (now) husband, and creating the perfect ceremony for us. I am more religious than my husband is, and she helped us to navigate our individual spirituality to create a ceremony we were both comfortable with. We also used her for some premarriage coaching to get some tips on communication. This was extremely helpful in the midst of all the wedding planning to get some perspective on what is REALLY important in the whole crazy process. It's so easy to get all caught up in what flowers to use in y... Read more

  • Rev. Laura Cannon is a wonderful and creative person who is so comfortable and relaxed. Calm, Cool and Collected! Our wedding ceremony was so wonderful. I often think of some of the phrases that Rev. Cannon mentioned during the ceremony. "The little things are the big things", the "exquisite excitements marriage will bring" to us...just to name a couple. It so happened our wedding was performed outdoors and sprinkling started to occur so Rev. Cannon has the ability to smoothly transition the rest of the ceremony into a short and sweeter version so that everyone would not get caught outside in a down pour. And not only is she welcoming and friendly, she accomodated us for a "dry run" of the ceremony a couple of days prior to the ceremony. THANK YOU REV. LAURA CANNON FOR A WONDERFUL AND MEMORABLE WEDDING CEREMONY!!! Victoria and Thomas Rosencranz

  • It's a testament to Rev. Laura that not only were my husband and I delighted to work with her and pleased with the ceremony that she helped us create but I continue to receive 'rave reviews' from my guests. "Ann and I can't even estimate how many weddings we have been to. Your wedding is at the top of our list. We are still talking about your vows." "A beautiful and touching ceremony." "It was obvious that she has known and loved you both for years." Rev. Laura was able to meet with us on fairly short notice (less than 30 days); we instantly felt comfortable and relaxed with her. We collaborated on what parts of a ceremony we wanted to incorporate. While both Bride and Groom are Jewish, we had promised family in Israel that we would have a Jewish wedding next year over there. We didn't want to wait and were 'settling' for a civil ceremony. We collaborated on what parts of a ceremony we wanted to incorporate; with Rev. Laura's help, we were able to achieve a blending of civil ... Read more
