  • Lili was the perfect officiant for our wedding! From the moment we contacted her, she was warm, friendly, informed, and helpful in guiding us in developing our perfect ceremony. On the day of the wedding, Lili was calm, prepared, and welcoming, and our guests remarked how wonderful, heartfelt, and memorable the ceremony was. We laughed, cried, and celebrated our marriage in exactly the way we had hoped--with love, humor, and happy tears. I would recommend Lili wholeheartedly--she has such a broad range of experiences and her background is so inclusive. Whether you are looking for a traditional or alternative wedding ceremony, Lili will help you craft the wedding of your dreams. We could not have been happier!!

  • Lili was an absolute pleasure to work with. She officiated our non-denominational wedding and it was just perfect. Her words embodied how we feel about each other, and really focused on our love. Lili gave us a good structure to work with and we wrote our own vows as well. She met with us before the wedding and definitely provided a lot of guidance, and also helped us realize some of the logistics as well. Additionally, she has lots of idea for little tweaks to make the ceremony ever so personal. She asked if we wanted to honor any family members/friends, and suggested we add on a drinking from a common cup. I really liked the idea! She's definitely very experienced and I just love how everything went. I am so glad we went with Lili as our officiant. We just really connected with her from our email/phone conversations. She's incredibly easy to work with and responds promptly. Our friends also commented on how great she was. Everything was just so genuine, and it felt very perso... Read more

  • Lili was great to work with. From our first meeting, she was warm and professional. We met a couple times before the wedding to review the ceremony, and she offered us many flexible options to make the ceremony our very own. A couple of our guests even remarked after the ceremony that they were impressed with Lili. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

  • Lili was a joy to work with, extremely kind, understanding, and responsive. We did a short, secular ceremony concentrating on the importance of family and friends. Many people told us how beautiful and unique the ceremony was, and that it truly reflected us and what it means to make this commitment to each other. We couldn't be happier to have chosen Lili to be part of our wedding!

  • Lili was a perfect officiant. As other reviewers have mentioned, she was helpful in offering ceremony ideas after interviewing us about our thoughts and feelings about each other and marriage. She was warm, supportive and competent in her delivery, keeping our guests' attention. She took us to important emotional places and held us so that we could maintain composure. We feel fortunate to have had Lili officiate our ceremony.

  • Rachel and I kind of had a feeling straight away that we'd found just the right match for what we had in mind with Reverend Lili. We actually both happened to find and take a liking to her independently. Once the confusion passed and it became clear we were talking about the same person, a dialogue was opened, and soon enough, one of the major points of stress associated with trying to plan our wedding suddenly seemed that much more under control. Even over Skype (We actually live on the East Coast, though Rachel originally hails from California.), her warmth and professionalism was immediately evident. She started off by trying to get a feeling for the two of us and our quirks. And we had a few to throw at her! We're the type of lovable (Apparently.) social misfits who looked to Star Trek and Lord of the Rings for metaphors with which to explain the needs we each fulfilled for the other. She was obviously amused, but rolled with it like a champ, and soon enough had the genera... Read more

  • Lili Goodman Freitas (http://www.weddingsofheart.com) As a couple, we had some ideas about what we wanted a ceremony to include, but not the specifics or how to structure it. Still, it was important that it be based on our vision. Since we were from out of state, we did phone interviews with five officiants which included time for some specific questions as well as some chatting/getting to know each other. Several candidates were very good, but Lili Goodman Freitas was by far the best fit for us. We had immediate rapport. She also suggested some ideas as to the form based on what we were interested in. Throughout the next several months, there were exchanges of email and a couple of phone conversations to bring it all together. We ended up writing a lot of the ceremony (as we desired) and Lili suggested options for readings and flow. She added her own parts, which she had us review, and was open to ideas for modifications. When the day finally came for us to be in ... Read more

  • I would highly recommend Reverend Lili. She is very pleasant and friendly and open to making the ceremony personalized and special. Not only does she have a broad range of types of ceremonies she has done (making her able to give good ideas for yours), but she actually cares about getting to know her couple prior to officiating. With us both being in the military, she was able to do my husband's and my ceremony on short notice post-deployment, was flexible with meeting times, very helpful with planning, and wonderful the night of. I couldn't have asked for a lovelier officiant and am so glad to remember her as I look back in pictures of the wedding.

  • Lili provided us with such a fantastic wedding ceremony. My husband and I looked at many officiants, but Lili seemed to be the best fit for us. From the first contact with her, Lili was professional, reliable, and very well spoken. You can tell that she genuinely cares about wanting to get to know the couple she is marrying, and is so approachable. She met with us multiple times, and even skype'd with us to do a runthrough of our ceremony. My husband and I were both so impressed with her services, and the ceremony she gave us was absolutely perfect. We have received numerous comments from our guests about how wonderful the ceremony was. A few have told me that it was literally one of the most beautiful wedding ceremonys that they had ever witnessed. Lili respected our ceremony choices, and created a personalized ceremony that painted such a perfect picture of myself and my husband. We were so pleased with how the ceremony turned out, and would highly recommend Lili to any coupl... Read more

  • Lili was an absolute pleasure to work with! I must say the HARDEST vendor to find for us was a good officiant. We needed someone able to assist us in creating our own ceremony, without causing any undue stress. We ended up interviewing 8 different officiants with varying degrees of success--some were insisting we needed to take marriage counseling classes prior to them agreeing to marry us-although I am not too sure why? My husband and I get along quite well, and we are in our 30's and are no strangers to the give and take needed for a relationship to work well. We have never been married before-because we were never in a rush. We take marriage seriously--so some officiants tended to be pretty judgmental, which was irritating to say the least. Well enough of that--I AM SO GLAD WE CHOSE LILI!!! She made everything a pleasure to do from writing our ceremony, to our vows, even rehearsal went smoothly thanks to her. The day of was wonderful and I am SO GLAD she was there to marr... Read more

  • Lily was great! She was so willing to work with our off beat ceremony. We didn't have a traditional ceremony. She helped us construct our own non-denominational labyrinth ceremony. We also scheduled a pre-marriage counseling session which worked out great! She really got to know us that really helped when the day of the wedding came. I had a mini-breakdown moment and she was a great calming light that kept us neutral and sane. A very pleasant person and someone who has done a lot of weddings before and really knows what she's doing. We'll go to her again for sure!
