    Larisa: Extraordinary Wedding Officiant

    Larisa went above and beyond to ensure our ceremony ran perfectly. I didn’t have a wedding planner so one of my concerns was that the ceremony ran how it was supposed to. It was so nice to have Larisa at our rehearsal as she was very knowledgeable of all aspects such as pace to ... View more walk, which way to face, the do’s and don’ts etc. Larisa ran through the ceremony twice at our rehearsal and I’m so thankful for that as it would have been so stressful for me (the bride) to have to coordinate the rehearsal. You truly don’t realize how much there is to know and practice until you’re going through it. As for the content and wording of the ceremony... after we met with Larisa and got to know us, she provided us with a very thorough, detailed draft and listed so many options of vows, ideas for rituals, even poems and readings. Larisa was open, honest and attentive to our needs and dislikes. It was nice to know I could make as many changes and cuts as I needed and Larisa was happy to make adjustments until the draft was exactly what we wanted. There are so many parts to planning a wedding, it was really nice to have at least one of them be stress free. Would absolutely recommend Larisa as a wedding officiant! Amy & Chris

    She’s wonderful!

    We met Larisa over facetime and even through a screen, her warmth and her professionalism came through. She wrote a beautiful service for us, including all the elements we wanted and respected all of our choices. The day of she led us through the ceremony with such grace, laughing with us and calming our nerves. She absolutely became one of the family.
