You won’t regret booking with Larisa
Larisa is a such a warm and welcoming person. She made us feel very comfortable throughout the entire process. She has been doing this for several decades and was able to give some great feedback. She was very receptive to our needs and any changes we might have needed. I wanted to incorporate Filipino traditions into our ceremony and I couldn’t remember a lot of it but she was able to successfully integrate it into our ceremony whilst explaining it well to our guests. You will not be disappointed by booking with Larisa.Sent on 26/06/2019

Easy & Meaningful Ceremony
It was a pleasure working with Larisa. She has so much experience that truly helped guide us into the customized ceremony that we wanted — we had certain elements of a traditional ceremony, but also mixed in a number of more modern elements that resulted in an even better ceremony than we had envisioned. The time she took to understand us as a couple really helped make the ceremony so much more personable that truly reflected “us”.Sent on 26/12/2019
Apart from the ceremony itself, the clear & direct instructions Larisa advised us of with respect to what we needed to do ahead of time to prepare for the ceremony (i.e. marriage licenses, etc. and what we’d expect in terms of timelines) made things easy, and ultimately left us feeling comfortable everything with the ceremony was under control.
Thanks again Larisa!

Larisa was a great officiant!
Larisa was wonderful to work with! Our wedding was Harry Potter themed, and Larisa was not only comfortable with the costume, but went the extra mile to help us bring our vision to life! She worked our theme into her lines, and she even modified her costume ahead of time to be a better fit. She would be a great choice for any couple's big day!Sent on 15/07/2019

Larissa went above and beyond for our wedding day! We sent her a list of everything we wanted to include in our ceremony and she sent us back 3 separate drafts customized to our needs. She was extremely responsive and seamlessly adapted our wedding ceremony to accommodate for an incoming thunder storm. We can't recommend her enough! Thanks again!Sent on 17/09/2018

Larisa provided us with a simple, heartfelt ceremony in which she was very flexible with regard to time and location of our service. Her sensitivity to our needs as well as her willingness to deliver the necessary marriage documents to the proper authorities was much appreciated. Her ceremony touched on all the important aspects of our marriage and she obviously was quite moved by Claudine's and my love for each other. Her fees were very reasonable especially given the short notice we required for the service.Sent on 01/10/2018

The perfect officiant
Larisa was awesome. She responded promptly when we reached out to her and she was very professional and knowledgeable. She laid out several options for our ceremony and her knowledge about the legal side of marriage was impacable. Larisa was really genuine and cared enough to ask all the right questions and bring up things we had not even thought about. Her experience and counsel were warm and welcome.Sent on 03/10/2018
The ceremony itself was beautifully done and we will always cherish her officiating.

Larisa was lovely to work with. She was responsive, helpful and full of good ideas. She helped us make a personalized ceremony that (we think) was tasteful and welcoming for our guests. Her services enhanced our wedding day. Highly recommended!Sent on 27/09/2018

Larisa gives you her full attention. She is very personable and you feel like you've known her for years. She has such a kind disposition about her. I would recommend her to anyone who is thinking of getting married or renewing vows. Larisa has great ideas to help your day be as special as it should and is very accommodating to your schedule.Sent on 23/07/2018

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 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.Sent on 27/04/2018
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!

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.Sent on 30/04/2018
