  • Like many couples this year, we postponed our wedding to next year but didn't want to wait to get married, so we decided to hire Larissa to officiate our civil Central Park wedding. From the beginning, I knew we had made the best decision. She was so kind and helpful when I couldn't get an appointment with the city clerk to obtain our marriage license, and right away, before even hiring her, she provided information on other places where we could get one. The process of working with her on writing our vows and the ceremony was easy and fun. The result, was the most magical ceremony we could have ever asked for. It was so perfect, that we have decided to not do another for our wedding next year, and just go straight to the party. There's no point to try to replicate that moment, because it was just too special and magical. Larissa is a beautiful soul, she has the most wonderful smile and energy. I'm forever grateful to her and I'm so happy we chose her to marry us!

    Laura (& Dr J). I have no words (not a journalist like you!) I am in complete awe of this review because I knew when I asked you to write one that you would blow it out of the park, and being British I am no baseball fan but I know it's a term that means amazing. I cannot thank you enough. To say I loved working with you would be an understatement, you are truly beautiful inside and out. I am honored to have married you. And how crazy I married a colleague of yours a year ago! I wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness and I will never pass that unique sport in the park and not think of that magical moment. Much love. the other L. x

  • Larissa is the BEST in the buisness! Because of COVID, my (now) husband and I had to move our large wedding to next year but we still wanted to get married this year. We had to change ceremony locations 4 to 5 times because of new restrictions and Larissa was there every step of the way! We didn't have a plan until 10 days before the wedding and Larissa was able to put togther an AMAZING ceremony with little time! She was even willing to lend me her garden for our ceremony that goes to show how understanding and kind she is. I can go on for hours about Larissa! I have to say my husband and I spoke to 6-7 officiants before her and none of them compared to her! She is amazing and felt like family! Make sure to book her now!

    Thank you Stephanie! I loved working with you and I wish you both so much happiness. I will always think of you when confetti is thrown :)

  • We very much appreciated Larissa as our officiant as she was extremely prompt with her responses, flexible & authentic! Larissa was very easy to communicate with and personable. She took our low key vibe and provided a thoughtful and succinct ceremony to match what we wanted. Would definitely recommend Larissa as a modern, personable and warm officiant!

    Thank you guys! I really enjoyed officiating your "socially distant" wedding last week and I am so happy that you guys found each other! Your guests were awesome too! All the best, Larissa

  • Larissa responded promptly to emails, explained the process and our options, and was flexible - centering what we wanted the ceremony to be like. Larissa also explained the form, the signatures, and the paperwork without losing joy and conveying happiness for us on our special day.

    Thanks E and A. It was such a lovely last minute ceremony and with the sun shining as it was (look at today!) it couldn't have been more perfect. I'm really happy for you both!

  • Larissa worked with us through 2 covid-postponed weddings and countless iterations to accommodate my picky notes and feedback in order to craft the ceremony perfect for us. In addition to incorporating stories from both me and my (now) husband, Larissa added her own recommendations and ideas to make the ceremony so personal and meaningful for us. I especially loved her recommendation to have our mothers hold on to our wedding bands and offer them to us during the ceremony. Such a lovely way to include them in our special moment. The suggested language for our ring exchanges was also perfect. We got LOTS of feedback from guests on just how perfect the ceremony was, and much of this is due thanks to Larissa.

    Thank you Monica! I was so thrilled it finally happened for you guys! You were a dream couple to work with! With love Larissa

  • We found Larissa through another officiant and instantly warmed to her open and friendly nature. She was prompt in answering all our questions and even helped us work around the 3 - 4 month backlog that the NYC City Clerk had in obtaining our marriage licence. In addition, she was flexible in keeping our date open when we were unsure of whether we were able to obtain our licence in time which really helped when planning our wedding. On the day of the wedding (socially distanced - we had about 5 people attend), she arrived early and her words about us was exactly how we wanted them portrayed; meaningful, not too cheesy, with a little humor thrown in. I would definitely recommend her to other couples who are looking for someone who is able to contribute to your ceremony in a fun and thoughtful manner. Thank you Larissa for making our day special!

    Thank you so much Jade and R! So much fun officiating my fellow Brits, you guys were a pleasure to work with and best of luck to you both in the months ahead. I wish you a lifetime of happiness! Larissa

  • We recently got married having Larissa as our official wedding ceremoniamester. Larissa was recommended to us by our friends who also used her service in online wedding. We were very please with her service and how it all went. To say it was a very unusual experience for us as we used online wedding ceremony where Larissa via Zoom, proceeded with all required and requested procedures. The entire ceremony went smooth, pleasant and memorable for us. Prior ceremony we had number of meetings with Larissa where she patiently explained in very details how it be also answering any questions we had. She had made few suggestions on how it be better done as well as provided us with few samples of ring exchange statements and vows. She was kindly checking on us time to time making sure we be on track with all arrangement we had to make. And finally at the end of it Larissa made that day a very special for us. Despite it all been online it was so real and filled with passion so we felt like Lariss... Read more

  • Larissa was the perfect officiant for our micro wedding. She has such a wonderful personality, which shined through both before and during the ceremony. She was quick to respond and accommodating to our requests — even taking the reigns when we wanted. Plus she was flexible with our last minute weather-related changes. We couldn’t recommend her more.

    Thank you both. I really enjoyed yesterday and the sweet surprise you had for me at the end! I will always remember it. Lots of good wishes to you both and have a wonderful honeymoon!

  • My husband and I had the most beautiful day of our lives last week thanks to Larissa. It took us months to find a wedding officiant that we liked then we found Larissa Martell. Larissa made our wedding unforgettable, she was the most professional, organized and kind during the preparations of our ceremony and when the day came and we met her it was wonderful. She was lovely and always smiling ! It was very special to have her with us on our special day. I will recommend her to anyone that needs a wedding officiant!!! Thank you again, Dan and Julie

    Thanks Julie and Dan. I loved your wedding! The location was fantastic and working with you both couldn't have been easier and a joy for me. I wish you both lots of happiness! Love Larissa

  • Larissa was just amazing! She got us started on the marriage license, got to know us personally, customized the storyline with our personal stories, and has been an incredible officiant! I could not recommend her more (+ her british accent is to die for). She’s sweet, nice, professional, funny and extremely helpful. Get her as an officiant for your wedding, we’re very happy we did!

    Soraya! Thank you for such a great review!! I wish I could review couples because you were amazing to work with!! I will never be on Ludlow Street again and not think of you and that amazing suite you had and the sheer beauty and elegance of it all. You guys were amazing, thank YOU for choosing me! Much love and happiness, Larissa

  • We finally decided to tie the knot but were in a bit of a pickle! We couldn't find anyone we felt would tie together our last-minute idea the way we liked. On a recommendation from a friend who happens to be a wedding photographer we contacted Larissa in hopes should could give us a wedding to remember. SHE DID! But before all of that Larissa was attentive and included us in ring vow & wedding vow selections. Larissa understood that we wanted to keep our wedding low-key & without a crowd. We couldn't have asked for a more patient, kind & wonderful person to help create this memory. If you are planning a zoom wedding we highly recommend Larissa. She will walk you through all decisions. Nothing was confusing. Everything was perfect.

    Alessa, thank you! Such a lovely ceremony, I loved how he looked at you when you walked in in your beautiful wedding outfit - so pretty! I wish you both LOTS of happiness!

  • We hired Larissa for our wedding ceremony on top of the rock in Manhattan. She was absolutely the best and the day wouldn't have gone so perfectly without her amazing service. She arrived on time, was super professional during the ceremony and was so helpful in calming us down throughout the process. She was in fact the first to arrive in line and got our group a spot to go up so we didn't have to wait in the long line when we arrived. Working with Larissa prior to the ceremony was smooth as well. She guided us through the process and prepared us with options for our vow and ring exchanges. I would recommend anyone to hire her as a wedding officiant. Her warmth, friendliness and professionalism would absolutely lighten up anyone's day.

    Thank you Sylvie, such a pleasure working with you and marrying you. TOTR couldn't have been more perfect and I was so happy the weather complied! Your photographer, Sacha, was awesome to work with too. I wish you and Yao a lifetime of happiness! Thank you again! Warm wishes, Larissa
