  • I can't speak highly enough about Larissa! My husband and I got married almost a month ago, and our guests are still talking about how much they loved her. We knew we would enjoy working with her after our introductory call — she was warm, sincere and funny. In the months and weeks leading up to our wedding, she worked with us to craft a ceremony that felt both intimate and light-hearted — one that fit our venue, a small restaurant in Brooklyn. And her delivery! She captured the room with her charisma, and used it to tell our guests about our story. She kept us on task throughout the process, particularly when it came to editing the ceremony and writing our vows, so there were no last-minute stressors. Larissa is so talented, and if you're able to book her for your wedding, consider yourself lucky.

    Oh my gosh Kristin, what a lovely review, thank you!! Your ceremony was so fun to write because you had such a lovely story and it was my pleasure to help with the vow editing. And please give your parents my best! I wish you and Mike lots of happiness! Larissa

  • Larissa is highly skilled at her craft--she guided us through a process we were clueless about and masterminded a ceremony that was warm, lighthearted, and most importantly, personal. Larissa is very communicative but so efficient that she was able to bring our perfect ceremony to life without much back and forth--a true lifesaver when you are coordinating with multiple vendors. Her presence charmed our guests and made our wedding day!

    Thank you both! It was such a pleasure working with you and your stunning views were something I will always remember. I hope you had a lovely time in Paris and enjoy married life!

  • Larissa was amazing! From our first phone conversation I knew we were going to choose her to be our officiant. She was funny, personable and friendly. She really took her time to get to know us and asked us very insightful questions to get our ceremony to be perfect. Her ceremony speech was very loving and touching, especially the part where she included a little something personal for each of our parents. My friends and family keep telling me how beautiful, touching and personal the ceremony was. I would recommend to anyone looking for a beautiful ceremony. Thanks again Larissa!

  • Larissa was perfect. She immediately brought a very warm and comforting presence to our ceremony. We couldn’t have been happier with her attention to detail, her thoughtfulness and her inviting warmth. She made us feel at ease so we could focus on what was important. We are so thankful we had the opportunity to have preside over our marriage.

    Thank you Azin! It was such a beautiful and intimate ceremony, I'm so glad you both loved it. Good luck with all the exciting news coming up :)

  • Larissa was an amazing officiant to work with. She is so sweet, funny and very laid back. It was so fun to fill out her questionnaire (and it actually really helped me write my vows) and from it she created an amazing ceremony that was SO personal, emotional, and funny. The best part was she allowed us to edit it any way we wanted so there was literally no way the ceremony wouldn't be perfect to us. She also helped us with our vows and edited them for us and had them printed out for us for the ceremony. After the wedding was over, we had some issues where we had put the wrong address on the license and she totally took care of it for us. She went above and beyond :) We are so thankful that we found her!!

    Hey Laura (and Mike) Thank you both for such a lovely review. It was so great working with you both (you more!) and then performing the ceremony. I'm so happy you and your guests all liked it and I wish you both nothing but the best! Larissa

  • 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!! :)

    Thanks Steph (and Aldo!) It was such a pleasure working with you both and a fun and loving ceremony to write. And phew re the license :)

  • We were given Larissa's number by our friend from New York where we intended to elope. We didn't know where to get married so Larissa gave us plenty of places to choose from. She was very accommodating, helping us out all the way, communicating all the time checking how we were. The interview which she had with us couple of weeks before the wedding helped her to create lovely & emotional scenario for the day. She manage to calm us down and create an exceptional atmosphere. We couldn't have chosen better! Thank you so much Larissa. Lots of hugs &kisses from Anna & Benoit from Montreal:)

    HI! So lovely to hear from you, it's been a wee while! Such a lovely surprise! Thank you so much for the lovely review and I hope you are both well and loving married life!

  • 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 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)
