  • Leora is a truly caring and wonderful celebrant. The ceremony she created for us combined our beliefs, personalities and included our two young daughters perfectly. She really went above and beyond to create our ceremony and was a delight on our wedding day, on time and completely prepared. If you hire Leora you and your guests will have incredible memories of your ceremony

  • My husband & I eloped during the pandemic. With This Ring's license signing service was perfect! Our ceremony was sweet & exactly what we wanted - all with only a short call before the event. We had a Monday ceremony that only came together a few days before and we appreciate the flexibility.

    Thanks Kate for your initiative and kind words. It was a delight to meet you and your groom and stand with you on your wedding day. I hope the joy you felt on your wedding day is the joy you will experience over and over again throughout your marriage!

  • Leora officiated our wedding on March 29, 2021. As with all weddings, some things went wrong that day, but what was perfect was Leora’s handling of our ceremony. We liked her from our first discussion, and she made us comfortable from the start – which is important considering we wouldn’t meet her until our wedding day. She was the only officiant we spoke with – we knew she was the one! Leora made the ceremony script process easy. She accommodated all of our requests and went out of her way to make us feel at ease. Her command of the schedule, impeccable timing, sense of humor, and overall love for her role as our officiant kept us calm and relaxed on an excitable day. It was a clear, cold, and windy day, but Leora’s warmness made all the difference. We could go on and on about what a wonderful person Leora is, but anyone who speaks with her will quickly figure that out. We consider ourselves fortunate for having found Leora.

  • It meant so much to us to have Leora officiate our wedding ceremony. Her warmth and generosity of spirit are palpable. She worked with us to accommodate COVID safety concerns, a quick time frame, and even an injured bride-to-be! Leora pronounced us wife and wife on a beautiful January day, on our back porch, and with words that suited us so well. Our three dogs sat quietly inside, intently watching their moms get married, and greeted Leora beautifully afterwards. They know a great person immediately, and it was the sweetest ending to our sublime day. Thank you, Leora, for helping us embark on our partnership in a beautiful, honest, and meaningful way!

  • Leora was an integral part of making our wedding ceremony special. From the very beginning, she took the time to get to know us, learn about our relationship, and learn about the traditions we wished to incorporate. She curated a ceremony so perfect and intimate for us, full of many emotions, interactive with our guests, and respective of our cultural elements. Our family and guests loved Leora and commented on how professional, elegant, and personable she was. Leora made our ceremony so memorable and I would highly recommend her to couples of any culture!

    Dear Riya, I am moved by your heartfelt words. You are very kind, thank you. It was a delight to stand with you and Eshan on your wedding day at the lovely Strathmore Mansion. Your families were also kind and generous. The shawl your mothers gifted me is the perfect accessory for outdoor weddings. I wish you and your groom a wonderful life! Leora

  • Despite the COVID scare, Leora went out of her way to make our wedding memorable. We can’t thank her enough for her flexibility. We went from a venue wedding to a wedding on our driveway. She made it quite special for us.

  • From our first phone consultation, Leora listened carefully to our preferences, and was extremely easy to talk to. We had no idea what we wanted in a ceremony, and she helped walk us through some options, and crafted a script that was personalized and very much our style. We loved the simple vows that she used, and she included a beautiful note of remembrance for my husband's father. It was clear that she really loves this job, and puts careful time and intention into crafting a meaningful ceremony for each couple. Fast forward to the Tuesday before our Saturday wedding date, and we had to change the venue (again) due to covid restrictions. I tearfully wrote an email to Leora bringing her up to date on the situation, and she responded within minutes. Her email brought a wave of calm over me. She suggested several alternate venues, and reassured us that everything would work out. She was right! On the day itself, she was professional, calm, and flexible (when some of our guests ...

    Thank you Kimberly for taking the time to write a thoughtful review of my services. I truly appreciate your kind words. Every couple deserves the very best on their wedding day and I'm thrilled I was the one you and Anthony chose to stand with you on your wedding day. You are a beautiful bride! The color and style of your gown was perfect on you and the pockets were a practical extra. Your hair, earrings and bouquet added to your bridal elegance. I wish you and Anthony the very best life has to offer!

  • Ms. Willis was the officiant for my wedding in September 2020 and she was amazing! It’s was a very high stress situation all around due to covid but she was very patient throughout the entire process. From our initial contact, she answered all of our questions. She was tolerant of the fact that we were a same sex couple. On the day of our wedding, we were running late, but she didn’t fuss with us. She made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. I’m very pleased that we chose her to share our day with us, and should we ever renew our vows, we wouldn’t hesitate to call her again.

    You are very kind, thank you! I know “stuff” happens especially on a Friday in northern Virginia. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your wedding day festivities. Take good care.

  • If you’re looking for someone who is invested in the process and wants to get to know you before the big day...Leora is it! She took the time to get to know my wife and I to incorporate our love into our ceremony. Truly a unique and personal experience. Although there were some quirks during the ceremony it all felt authentic and honest. We would definitely recommend to those who want to have someone genuine represent them on their big day! Thanks again Leora!

  • Leora was very friendly, professional, and flexible throught the planning process despite last-minute COVID impacts to the original plans. She created a wonderful ceremony script from scratch that needed very little editing and included all our requests. At the rehersal, she skillfully and respectfully coordinated the wedding party/readers across 3 distinct families and several friends. Her high quality preparation shone through with a beautiful ceremony, with complements still pouring in on her officiating quality from close family and friends. Highly recommended!

    Thanks Joseph for your thoughtful review. It was a pleasure to work with you and your bride. I admire you both, I'm sure the impact of Covid-19 on your lives, wedding planning, jobs and across state lines was taxing. Remember you persevered and ended up standing. Take good care!
