  • My husband and I got married on February 3rd, 2018 and Larissa was our celebrant. From the first phone call, we knew that Larissa was an amazing person and that we wanted her to be part of our wedding day. She is kind, caring, funny and easy to talk to. They way that she incorporated our lives as a couple, our personalities apart and our family and friends into the ceremony was everything we hoped for and more. With Larissa, we never felt any pressure along the way and she sent so many samples and ideas for us to look at, that it was effortless! So many of our guests commented on the ceremony, saying that they were so moved! Larissa had tears of emotion trickling down our cheeks... and cheers and laughter, all in the same 20 minutes! I would recommend Larissa to any couple who is looking for a unique ceremony to celebrate their love, life, adventures, hopes and dreams. Thank you!!!!!

  • I can't say enough good things about Larissa! She was absolutely amazing! Our wedding guests would not stop coming up to us saying how beautiful our ceremony was and how they all cried through the whole thing! She made it so personal and perfect for us, I still get chocked up thinking about it. She was so sweet and amazing throughout the whole process, and even calmed me down when we had a moment alone in the bridal suite before the ceremony. She was a such a calming and soothing presence! And the kicker, she emailed us prior to the wedding to randomly make sure we had everything in order, and we had totally forgot to get out marriage license! If it weren't for her sending that reminder we would have had a disaster! I can't thank her enough for everything she did for us! I would recommend her a thousand times over!! :)

  • We can't say enough great things about Larissa. We had spoken to about 4 or 5 different Officiants before speaking with Larissa. Two minutes into the phone call I put my phone on mute, turned around to my fiancé and said "I think we've found our officiant". We were right. After a great intro call Larissa encouraged us to speak to others before making a decision. We were ready to just say yes, so we pretended to speak to others and then messaged her 4 days later saying we'd decided to go with her (haha, sorry Larissa)!! From that point on the experience got better and better. She sent a very thorough questionnaire through that not only was used by Larissa to write her portion of the ceremony, but also really helped me with writing my grooms speech. Don't fill this out on a plane though, you'll cry in public. A few weeks later we received a google doc with the first draft of the ceremony in. It was pretty much perfect. We jumped on a call, which Larissa actually agreed to do... Read more

  • Larissa was so wonderful to work with from the first email exchange until the very end! Our ceremony was perfect and better than I could have ever expected! I would highly recommend using her for your wedding - I don't think there is anyone else out there that could have been better!

  • Larissa officiated our wedding in January, and we can’t say enough wonderful things about her. She is professional, but also so warm and friendly. Larissa took the time to get to know both of us during the months before the ceremony, which allowed her to make it personal, meaningful, and true to who we are as a couple. Some of our guests thought we had known her for years! On our big day, she had everything taken care of, which allowed us to relax and really enjoy our ceremony. We had three young nieces involved in our ceremony, and Larissa took the time to chat with each of them beforehand to put them at ease (she’s fantastic with children). She also chatted with family and guests—everyone had such nice things to say about her. We highly recommend her, with no reservations whatsoever. She was great!

  • I could not recommend Larissa enough. We hired her for a more “elopement” style ceremony, but she didn’t treat us any different than her average client. The ceremony she wrote for us was absolutely beautiful. Not only did it bring tears to my eyes, but it actually made my “baby” brother cry (which was extremely unexpected)! I could not be more grateful for everything Larissa did for us. She was always so kind, and patient when it came to any questions, or waiting for responses from our end... I would recommend her 1000000 times over. You will NOT regret working with her!

    Thank you Leslyn! What a pleasure it was working with you both and I wish you lots of happiness. And Merry Christmas!

  • From my first email to Larissa I knew I had found the perfect officiant for our NYC wedding. Living in the UK and trying to arrange a wedding abroad can be tasking, but with Larissa to hand to answer any questions, offer advice and give us tips, she was perfect. Very personable and really got to know us as a couple and what we wanted on the day. Our day was PERFECT and Larissa helped us achieve this by being her genuine lovely self. We married at the Top Of The Rock and what an experience it was. Larissa is definitely someone I have already recommended to people and I would tell anyone looking for a friendly, personable, down to earth professional officiant - choose Larissa. It is a day we will never forget and I am glad that this lovely lady was part of it. Thank you Larissa. Keep being your amazing self. Lauren & Shaun (Liverpool, UK)

    Thank you both for this lovely review. It was such a fun wedding on the TOTR and I'll never forget that excited old lady waving at you! All the best to you both for a lifetime of happiness!

  • I can't say enough wonderful things about Larissa and her work as our officiant. I am admittedly a control freak, and wanted our ceremony to go a certain way and neither be too short nor too long. She accommodated all my wishes entirely, and by having myself and my husband fill out a detailed survey she was able to come up with lovely words & touches that felt like she had known us for years! She had our attendees laughing and crying (and me and my husband too!) throughout the ceremony. Many people came up to me during our reception to tell me how wonderful they thought she was. I am so happy we chose her to officiate our big day!

    Thank you Mary Beth, what a lovely review and I thoroughly enjoyed working with you! I'm glad we were able to come up with such a wonderful ceremony. Best wishes to Frank, Larissa

  • Highly recommend Larissa if you are looking for a celebrant for your wedding ceremony. My husband and I recently got married in Central Park at the ‘Treehouse for Dreaming.’ We organised everything from the UK and were so happy to find Larissa who was super helpful and gave us lots of advice and recommendations to make sure we had the perfect day 💖😍!

  • With less than a week to plan, Larissa created the most amazing ceremony for us in Central Park. We were very last minute with planning because it was a spur of the moment decision. But we gave her a little background about us & she whipped up a personalized ceremony that included our love story. She recommended a great spot with the aesthetics that made for beautiful pictures. Right by the water, with the bridge behind, the sun hit us at the right spot where it felt like we were the only people on this earth and nothing else mattered. Couldn’t thank her enough. Highly recommend!

    Thanks Alexis, it really was put together last minute so I am so glad you liked it :) It was so beautiful and I will think of you every time I pass that spot!

  • Having Larissa marry us was the easiest and best decision we made. From our very first phone conversation, we knew she was the one to marry us. Besides her incredible accent, she took her time explaining what a celebrant is/does, the process involved that she takes her clients through and answered any and all questions we had. We knew we wanted our ceremony to be intimate and have our guests feel the incredible love and authentic happiness that we had for each other and Larissa did that and more! Throughout the planning process, Larissa got to know us both as individuals and as a couple. Getting to know who we were, what our story was, and other details about our lives, helped Larissa write an amazing and incredibly touching ceremony script. She captured and told our love story perfectly and even made guests who never shed a tear cry! We may have only known Larissa for a short time while planning the wedding, but it was as if she was our closest friend. Two months later, our gue... Read more

  • It was wonderful to work with Larissa. She was very easy going and totally flexible. We really wanted to personalize our ceremony and she could not have been more accomodating. Whether you want something religious or not, traditional or not, Larissa can make it happen. She contributed great ideas and guided us through every step of the process. We wanted to saber champagne as a unity ceremony, which is a bit outside the box, but she was totally game. We also really appreciated the fact that Larissa took care of all the paperwork involved with getting the marraige license, which gave us one less thing to worry about.

  • Larissa was an absolute pleasure to work with. She brought our intimate Brooklyn wedding to life with the delivery of the speech she had prepared. The process of discussing what it was we wanted the tone of our ceremony to be was effortless and she immediately understood what it was we wanted. Larissa is extremely professional and organized. I knew we were in good hands and all of our guests agreed it was one of the best ceremonies they had ever witnessed. Thank you Larissa!!

    Thanks Paige, absolutely pleasure to work with in return. I really enjoyed the intimacy of your wedding and wish nothing but the best for you and Rob!
