  • 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

  • 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 did not only do a wonderful job she became such a source of calmness as I reshuffled our wedding from 120 people to my fiance and I and our parents. Covid dismantled our original wedding plans but having Larissa officiate our wedding was a beautiful ceremony I will never forget. I am so touched, that in just a few days, she helped me write a ceremony and take on a socially distanced wedding for me and my now husband. It was better than I could have imagined and Larissa was such a big part of making our day special and meaningful. She was prompt, responsive, enthusiastic, and kind. You can really tell she loves what she does! Thank you again!

    Thank you Danielle, it was my absolute pleasure helping you tie the knot with your husband! It all came together so beautifully on the day, the kind park rangers were amazing and I'm so happy for you both. All the best! Larissa. ps - I'm obsessed with that jumpsuit! It looked fantastic!

  • Larissa was absolutely amazing to work with. She helped us feel at ease during such a unique time, was flexible, thoughtful, and extremely helpful. Given that we had a virtual wedding, it went much better than expected, and Larissa's personal touch made virtual guests feel as if they were there with us. We couldn't thank Larissa any more for making our day special and something that we will forever remember as a special day. Highly highly recommended.

    Thank you Phil! and to the lovely Andrea! It was a super sweet wedding with everyone watching, I thoroughly enjoyed looking at their expressions. Really happy you picked me, it was definitely an experience! Enjoy married life! Your love story and how you met will stay with me for a long time! Larissa

  • Working with Larissa for our wedding on 10/10/20 was amazing! We knew we wanted a thoughtful and personal service and Larissa delivered. She asked us questions about each other that really added that little touch. Larissa also provided us vow examples which was a HUGE help to writing our own. 100% would recommend for your wedding!

    Hi Amy! Hope you got back OK from the big road trip and thank you for taking the time to review me. It was a lovely wedding (what a great setting, your cousins now have something to look forward to!) and it was really great getting to know you both. Lots of happiness! Larissa

  • Larissa was an absolute dream to work with. We interviewed many other officiants and were instantly drawn to her energy and charisma. She was so flexible and gave us excellent insights into how to write our own vows. On the night, she was calm and organized and delivered her part beautifully. All night we were receiving compliments on the ceremony and her officiating. Would highly recommend to anyone hoping for a perfect, loving energy at their ceremony!

    Thank you so much, this is a lovely review! It was my pleasure working with you both and then performing the beautiful ceremony! My best to you both x

  • Larissa Officiated our wedding yesterday, and, frankly, we couldn’t have been luckier to have her. She is a lovely, huge hearted person, who put her personal and professional self into our ceremony from the start. Our first phone call to her, the sound of her beautiful voice, was just the start of our wonderful experience. Thank you, Larissa. You touched us and our entire family yesterday . We love you!

    Oh my gosh you guys thank you for such a lovely review! Since our first call early March it has been such a pleasure getting to know you both and your story. It was such a lovely and sweet ceremony and wow did you knock it out of the park with your outfits! #stunning! All my absolute best wishes for a lifetime of happiness! Much love- Larissa (ps thanks for the cookies, they were delicious!!)

  • Larissa was amazing to work with. She provided so much guidance, and we really appreciate how flexible she was with... well, everything. I anticipated the options for vows and ring exchanges to be cookie-cutter -- and I was okay with that -- but I was pleasantly surprised by her options. Her standard ceremony was so moving. Thank you, Larissa, for a beautiful Sunday morning ceremony. We could not have imagined it better. Also, we really appreciate how quickly she replied to our inquiry and subsequent questions and requests. When the time comes for vow renewals, I'd choose Larissa again.

    responded with the following comments.

    Vow renewal, yes please! I would love to work with you guys again! Many thanks for a wonderful review and photo! I wish you both LOTS of happiness for the years ahead! Larissa

  • Larissa was extremely easy to work with before the ceremony and a true expert in officiating weddings. She gave us questions to answer in order for her to personalize the script more, which was a really great touch during ceremony. She provided sample vows and ring exchanges as well. She reviewed the whole process with us over a Zoom call, so we had nothing to worry about going into our ceremony! Afterwards, our families raved about the ceremony by Larissa and we completely agreed. Highly recommend her for your wedding!

    Thanks both! Lovely wedding- you are a fab couple! So easy to work with and I loved your family- especially kind of your mom to let me borrow her reading glasses!! Please thank her again! Best wishes to you both! Larissa
