  • We thoroughly enjoyed working with and getting to know Larissa. She was warm, professional and put us at ease throughout the entire process. And, at the ceremony, she was an absolutely lovely and inspiring presence!

  • 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 :)

  • 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!

  • 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)

    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
