  • If you are seeking a warm, caring, genuine, professional, seems-like-you've-known-this-person-your-whole-life individual to carry out such an important and special moment in your life, look no further than Elizabeth River. We found Elizabeth through a blog recommendation while doing research on eloping in San Francisco. Like many other couples in 2020, our original plans for our wedding day were altered. Though we were sad for how the day did NOT go, we couldn't be more thrilled about how it DID go and our choice to work with Elizabeth on creating a unique and "truly ours" elopement ceremony in Golden Gate Park. It was immediately clear that she deeply cares for those she works with and is passionate about what she does, which was emphasized by her dedicated time in preparing with us and her well crafted and personalized homily. Elizabeth sets you up for success with lots of resources to assist you on the co-creation of this event. Elizabeth has a special gift of making you feel ... Read more

    Thank you, Baillie, and I was thrilled to officiate your elopement in Golden Gate Park! Wasn't it cool that we had a coyote visiting your wedding? An unexpected witness! Many blessings to the two of you in your marriage, Elizabeth

  • Where do I even begin with my rave review of Reverend River. She is everything you could possibly want in an officiant. She is kind, flexible, and remarkably talented. She met us where we were, and worked with us every step of the way to ensure that our ceremony was exactly what we wanted. The end product was a beautiful ceremony that reflected the unique elements of our relationship and our shared spirituality. We eloped, but have since shared the document with family members who agree that it is one of the most beautiful ceremonies they have ever heard. She gave us a moment we will never forget, and words that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. Thank you, Reverend River!

    Oh Cassie, thank you for your wonderful words and let me just say what a great joy it was to co-create this ceremony with the two of you - and then to celebrate it with you along with Badger, the wonder dog - on the beach! Love and blessings, Elizabeth

  • Elizabeth is great! She took time to get to know us and understand what we wanted in a ceremony. She wrote a very personalised ceremony for us and sent it to us to review to ensure it was just right. We were very happy with the result and did not change a word. Elizabeth was very easy to work with and made sure our day went perfectly. We highly recommend Elizabeth!

  • Rev. Elizabeth is wonderful. I found her online and emailed her to learn more about her, and to see if we'd be a match. We corresponded through email and had several phone conversations. My husband and I eventually met in person with Elizabeth and spent about two hours visiting and planning the ceremony. Elizabeth has a warm, glowing, happy personality that instantly makes you feel like you have been friends for years. She did such a wonderful job preparing us for the ceremony, and prompting us when we were slacking (deadlines are important and she is very clear about that!) The day of the wedding, she helped calm my nerves and the ceremony was absolutely beautiful. I could not have asked for a more special, magical, happy day. This could not be possible without Elizabeth. If you are looking for a personalized, beautiful ceremony, look no further- Elizabeth is your girl! I could not be happier with her, she did such a phenomenal job and has been a pillar of support going t... Read more

    Oh Michael, your review brings tears to my eyes; I am so thrilled that your wedding ceremony, and the day, made you feel this way! The two of you were such a delight to collaborate with in creating your ceremony--your love story! Both of you gave me the pieces of the story along with special details that made my job easy. And Michael, I was awed by the beautiful planning of the whole thing that you did! Just the perfect setting for your love, your marriage! With love and blessings, Elizabeth

  • Elizabeth was absolutely a wonderful addition to our day. She was not only our officiant, but a friend standing next to us, guiding our commitment with such love and care. The very first time I spoke to Elizabeth I felt calmed by her presence, she is such an understanding and kind person. You can only wish to have someone with such positive energy to share in the most important moment of your life. Elizabeth gave us the space to co-create our ceremony which allowed us to make the language and words we used to perfectly “ours”. I truly felt like the ceremony really reflected our love, our journey and our wishes for the future. She was so supportive throughout the entire process and was willing to meet with me several times in person and we had extensive email exchanges over the course of six months or so to co-create our homily, ceremony, readings by our family and tie in our vows. I would highly recommend her to anyone that wants a special and personalized touch to their B... Read more

    Oh Ellie, thank you for this lovely review! It was wonderful getting to you and David over the year preceding your wedding and then focusing in on your exact thoughts, emotions, hopes and dreams as the ceremony came together. And the vows you and David brought you both to tears, and a lot of your loved ones too! My blessings on your wonderful marriage! Love, Elizabeth

  • Elizabeth River was great to work with! She was just the touch our little wedding needed! We got married at Chicken Ranch Beach in Inverness, CA on a small budget. Elizabeth was very affordable and was great at communicating with us as we planned our wedding from Colorado. When we got to meet in person the day before our wedding, she made us feel comfortable and had great suggestions. She has a wonderful warmth and welcoming presence. I would not recommend anyone else.

    Thank you Mrs. Burt for the lovely review! I"m so glad you felt warmly welcomed; you two are so naturally friendly and easy, you brought forth your own warmth and welcome! Wishing you both all blessings in your wild and wonderful creative endeavors!! With love, Elizabeth

  • Absolutely amazing! Elizabeth was a pleasure to work with, I would, without doubt, recommend her as an officiant for everyone's wedding. From the first email correspondence, she was incredibly professional, responsive and thoughtful. For our first meeting, we met her in person and she was wonderful. She spend a few hours with us, listening to our stories and already preparing for our special day. She had a list of questions to get to know us and to also get an idea of the type of ceremony we wanted. She was great about reminding of us little details which I really appreciate. On the day of, she was incredibly patient and calming. I was running late as it was our destination wedding and from the early morning, things weren't exactly how we wanted but she was able to keep everything as planned. Her voice is magical and the way she wrote our ceremony collaborating all of our stories were incredible. I am so glad we went with Elizabeth. A big thank you and I highly recommend her as a...

    Oh Tatyana, thank you for your wonderful review of my services! Wasn't it a magical day with the sun blazing on the ocean and all the gulls overhead, while the families gathered around to celebrate your wedding!! You and Juan were a joy to work with--offering your deepest truths, showing me your passion and commitment--all a complete joy for me. And yes, I do love what I do--with couples like you and Juan!

  • Elizabeth did our vow renewal in July 2018. I am so happy to found her on this website. She is such a warm and amazing person! I am short of words when I am describing how wonderful and spectacular our ceremony was! She put so much effort and love in it! From the bottom of my heart I feel very blessed to have met Elizabeth and that she has been a part in our special day! Thank you so much for making our special day even more special! Thank you! I would highly recommend her! With much love Stefanie

    Stefanie, thank you so much for your lovely words! It was so much fun doing your 10th Anniversary Renewal of Vows with you and Marcus and the boys plus a few of your closest family and friends. And didn't Mother Nature show off some of her glories--brilliant sunlight on the Pacific Ocean, fog and wind and bracing air to remind us how precious this world is!? Thank you again for including me in this very special day! Blessings for the next 20-30-50 years and love to you all, Elizabeth

  • Elizabeth was the perfect choice for our beach “elopement” near Pt. Reyes, CA. The day was exactly what we had hoped it would be... A personalized beach wedding on a beautiful morning, surrounded by nature, with Elizabeth leading us through a ceremony that we had crafted with her help. Prior to the wedding day, Elizabeth guided us in the type of elements that we might want to include in our ceremony and gave us examples of poems and vows that we could work from to make the ceremony our own. She met with us about a month prior to the ceremony and took the time to understand who we are and what is important to us as individuals and as a couple. From that meeting, Elizabeth wrote a “homily” that she shared as part of the ceremony. Elizabeth is warm and funny and perceptive. She was the perfect choice for our wedding and we would recommend her to anyone. - Sara and Scott

    Thank you so much, Sara! You and Scott were a joy to work with as you were so honest, enthusiastic and forthcoming, which made it easy to craft a homily that reflects who you are! My pleasure!

  • My husband and I were thankful that Elizabeth was the officiant for our wedding in Tomales Bay. She was very accommodating to our request, a bi-lingual ceremony [Chinese & English]. She worked closely with us to develop a custom ceremony that was true to our backgrounds & values, and memorable for our families and guests. Elizabeth was professional and efficient. She provided us clear instructions on what she needed from the couple. The same time she was understanding and respectful of our time & space. I highly recommend Elizabeth. She's the perfect officiant for your special day.

    Dear Yuan, Thank you so much for this fine review. It was a great pleasure to me, to be be able to participate in your bilingual ceremony. It was touching to watch your parents' faces as your interpreter translated the homily and the vows especially--it meant a lot to them. You and Mike looked so beautiful (don't tell Mike I called him beautiful!) as you gazed into each other's eyes during the vows. Very moving! Love rules, doesn't it? Love, Elizabeth

  • We adore Elizabeth and we absolutely loved working with her! After being so moved by my sister-in-law's wedding where the officiant shared charming details about how the couple met and anecdotes about their love story and their hopes for their future together, we just knew this was the type of ceremony we were looking for. During our wedding planning, we mentioned this to our dear friends that we wanted to have a personalized ceremony for our wedding, and they wholeheartedly recommended Elizabeth who officiated their wedding. We knew we had to meet her, so I spoke to her on the phone along with several other officiants. Elizabeth stood out from the rest. We easily chose Elizabeth for her warmth, her character and her understanding of what we envisioned for our ceremony. We met up together for several hours where she really took the time to get to know us, asking all sorts of insightful questions (she's also a couples counselor). This didn't feel like a meeting, but more like ca... Read more

    Thank you, Miwa, for offering this great review. I was very moved by your wedding ceremony, especially as I watched all your friends watching you and Gustavo. It was such a pleasure to marry you, and I was so honored that you remembered me in the years since your grandma died. Wishing you and Gustavo many blessings for many years to come! with love, Elizabeth

  • Elizabeth worked with us long distance to prepare for our wedding in California. As a longterm Indiana couple excited to legally marry at last, we were pleased that she collaborated with us to craft a ceremony that fit our history and spiritual beliefs. She suggested readings based on our initial conversation and was able to weave everything together in a beautiful way that made our special day even more meaningful. I would recommend Elizabeth to couples of all orientations and spiritual outlooks!

    Hello Shawndra, Thank you for this beautiful review! I am especially honored at your remarks because you are not only a writer, but a really great writer! It's so good to know the ceremony came up to your expectations. And it was thrilling to get to marry you here before this country came to its senses regarding marriage equality! A privilege for me. Thank you and Judy both, for your trust in choosing me to officiate your wedding! Love, Elizabeth

  • Having Elizabeth officiate our wedding 9 years ago was one of the best decisions we made towards making our wedding day extra special. Elizabeth's warm and genuine nature really stood out for us the first time we met her. We immediately knew that she was someone who truly cared about who we were as individuals and as a couple. Telling her our story was such an enjoyable experience, it felt like chatting with an old friend. During our ceremony, Elizabeth told our story so beautifully, I still fondly remember her words to this very day. Thank you so much Elizabeth, I will always be grateful for the beautiful way you told our love story on our most special day.

    Thank you, Katrina, for this lovely review! I love hearing your story, and putting it into your ceremony. I can still see the same lovelight in your and John's eyes in your photos on Facebook as you raise your two darling boys with such joy!
