  • We interviewed several to officiate our wedding and we found an amazing gem. Leigh Ann Phillips-Knope gave us each a questionnaire which we made us dig deep into our relationship. She then took our answers and crafted a very personalized ceremony which we then got to review. We had so many compliments at the wedding about the ceremony. Her words were touching and memorable. We can't say enough good things about this company.

  • I never imagined that our decision to work with Roots of Change would result in a lifelong connection with an amazing person! We highly recommend Leigh Ann to anyone looking for a personal and inspiring ceremony! When searching for someone to conduct our wedding, it was very important to us that the ceremony was unique and reflected our personalities. Too often we've attended ceremonies that were dull and scripted, and we promised ourselves and our guests this wouldn't be the case. Roots of Change was a perfect match for us, and our expectations were exceeded in every way possible! The process that Leigh Ann used to design our one-of-a-kind ceremony is extremely creative and expressed us and all of our emotions perfectly. Not only did she create our individual love story, but she told it from both of our perspectives, which allowed our family and friends the opportunity to fully understand our love. Leigh Ann was a true partner in planning our special day and we could no... Read more

  • We couldn’t have asked for a more thoughtful or loving person to celebrate our nuptials! On the day of our ceremony, Leigh Ann was ahead of schedule every step of the way and was a major contributor in making it the best day of our lives. Our friends and family had so many compliments about the ceremony and of both Leigh Ann’s words and professionalism. The questions she had us respond to in preparation for our ceremony were comprehensive and even made us feel closer to each other as we reflected on our relationship leading up to the wedding. Originally, when we found Leigh Ann, we were living in Texas (and Leigh Ann in Michigan), and we had a great feeling about her solely based on our interactions by phone and email. As our ceremony date approached, and we were finally able to meeting Leigh Ann in person, we had such a warm feeling and knew that we had chosen the perfect officiant for our non-traditional ceremony!

  • We loved working with Leigh Ann! She helped us create a very personal ceremony that really reflected who we are and what we wanted. We got many comments from guests afterwards, that our wedding ceremony was the best they'd ever been to. Highly recommended!

  • I cannot say enough good things! Before meeting Leigh Ann, I didn't think that it would be possible to have a ceremony that reflected both my relationship with my fiance as well as my beliefs about marriage. She turned our wishes into a beautifully written ceremony, while taking the time to get to know us and making sure it represented what we wanted for the most important day of our lives. On the big day, she executed that vision perfectly. All our guests remarked that it was a beautiful and unique ceremony, and were very touched by how personal it was.

  • Leigh Ann created such an incredible wedding ceremony for us that truly captured our relationship. Our guests raved about her. She was calm, audible, and appropriately emotional throughout the entire ceremony. We had such a great time working with her in creating the ceremony and she gave full ownership of the decisions to us. She answered all of our questions and offered suggestions when we needed help. She will be able to make your special event special and is a delight to work with.

  • Leigh Ann was a great match for us as we really wanted an officiant who took the time to understand and appreciate us as a couple. She provided gentle and honest feedback as we crafted our ceremony and truly captured the spirit of our relationship on the day of our wedding through her sincere and heartfelt presentation. We feel very fortunate to have worked with Leigh Ann and would happily recommend her to others.

  • Leigh Ann is just so wonderful. She is caring, thoughtful and, genuine. Her ceremony was moving and passionate. My family and friends are still talking about it. My sister asked me, "Can the two of you get married again? Cuz that was the best wedding we have ever been too." Leigh Ann has a well established process of getting to know you and your significant other in such a way that she gets to know the real you without taking a life time to get to know you. We loved how personal our ceremony was. We were so used to cookie cutter weddings. Ours was unique to our story.

  • When my now husband and I were looking into a wedding ceremony we were first sucked into the whole circus aspect worrying about the venue and the flowers and the lights and...etc. We knew that only a few things were really important to us (my engagement ring, my dress, the music, and our officiant), however we played the game to start until we realized it was not us. So we cancelled the original venue and trappings and focused on what was important. I give this intro so that I can say how wonderful Leigh Ann was in every aspect. Through the planning stages she asked us many questions and listened carefully to our answers. She tailored the ceremony for us, addressing our needs and wishes. Our simple ceremony with no flowers other than my silk flower bouquet and my sister and maid-of-honor's bouquet, no decorations, and only two people in our wedding party is one our family and friends still talk about. The ceremony was so original with touches even the chapel had never seen befor... Read more

  • Liegh-ann was so awesome. Some members of our family are pretty conservative so we weren't sure how they'd react to a more personal ceremony. Many many people told us after that it was the best ceremony they had ever been too. Our parents really loved it too. Also we had to change our venue the day before due to a power outage and she was such an important calming presence amongst some of the chaos.

  • My wife and I interviewed a half-dozen officiants before we were lucky enough to meet Leigh Ann and Kim of Roots of Change. Upon meeting them, you immediately feel their love for each other. This passion towards each other directly translates to their love of officiating. In our experience, Leigh Ann wrote the ceremony while Kim attended the wedding to deliver a witty, funny, serious and heart-felt experience to all whom attended. Throughout the process of creating the ceremony, both Kim and Leigh Ann were professional and responsive. They kept us on schedule without being pushy. Their questionnaire really helps to get the process started and we do recommend not cheating by looking at each other’s answers. The result of this effort was a better ceremony then either of us imagined. The flow of the ceremony was also amazing. Leigh Ann and Kim were able to incorporate a multitude of events (i.e sand ceremony, mother speeches, remembrance candle, etc) while maintaining an up... Read more

  • Leigh Ann wrote a beautiful ceremony for us. We had a lot of elements that we wanted to include, and she managed to weave them together into an intimate and personal ceremony that flowed well and wasn't too long. We are still receiving compliments on how touching our ceremony was almost a year later. Leigh Ann is a great choice for folks who want more than a fill-in-the-blank experience.

  • Leigh Ann could not have been a better officiant for our wedding. My spiritual background and that of my husband and our diverse families were all taken into account. The ceremony that Leigh Ann designed was beautiful, exquisitely customized to our needs, and magical. We felt that she did a marvelous job of including all of the ideas and concepts we wanted without alienating our relatives with more "traditional" beliefs. Leigh Ann has a tremendous intuition, and a wide-open heart and spirit that shines through in her finely-woven ceremonies and in her presentation of these ceremonies. It was marvelously easy working with Leigh Ann. Her flexibility and intelligence was always very clear in her manner of working with us. I would wholeheartedly recommend Leigh Ann to anyone who desires a very special wedding ceremony or other life-transition ceremony. She also officiated at my twin sister's Celebration of Life, and I could not imagine a more special tribute to my darling sister.
