    personalized

    Lorie was very professional. She took the time to meet with us several months before the service (an extensive meeting) to personalize the service. She included our children which was beautifully integrated. Lorie is well organized and genuinely cared about our day. The vows she prepared for us were exactly what we were looking for. We would highly recommend Lorie's service to anyone looking for a meaningful officiant.

    Thank you Mellisa and John, you guys made it so easy. I love my job and couples like you make my job so easy and fun. The kids did great with their vows.

    Absolutely Lovely!

    My fianc茅 and I are going to be wed with another officiant due to scheduling, but Lorie was an absolute delight to work with along the way! She was kind, cheerful, an absolutely laugh, but very professional in her work. Anyone would be lucky to be married by her.

    Lorie Gonta's reply:

    Thank you, Maxwell...I wish you the best of a beautiful life together...If you ever need any other services, I am available for baptisms..wink wink...

    Amazing experience!

    Lorie officiated our wedding last weekend and I have to say she was amazing. She was so helpful throughout the process and shared any tidbits she had learned over the years. When she had sent us the written copy of the ceremony a few months before I fell in love with the words she had written. We didn't want to write our own vows and she had written some that were perfect for us. We just added our own little touch to them. I would highly recommend Lorie Gonta for anybody who is looking for an officiant. She is just too sweet not to love! Thanks Lorie!

    Lorie Gonta's reply:

    Thank you Sarah and Marco...you guys were wonderful. It was a wonderful day. Seeing you two up there saying your vows, made my heart melt. This is why I love my job! Getting to marry wonderful couples like you.

As a former wedding planner, I loved being a part of the couple's special day. However, wanting to do more for couples, marrying them was the next best thing. I love getting to say I now pronounce you husband and wife. It is the best job I could ask for.

Also being ordained has given me the added satisfaction of being able to offer more to a couple outside of being married. I encourage couples who have pets to somehow incorporate them into the ceremony.

Adding vows for children when blending a family or even vows for your furbaby has been an excellent addition to some ceremonies I have done.

I enjoy taking photos of flowers and nature when I am not performing weddings鈥攖aking care of my three cats and one bunny. Going for walks with my husband and just enjoy life as it comes.

Several of my hobbies include making jewelry and rosaries, and yes, I make them for brides to carry down the aisle in their bouquets and crocheting.

I am the IT Dept. as well as Lorie's husband. We work as a team, I keep her afloat with computer problems, and she keeps everything else afloat regarding weddings.

We balance each other out. She doesn't have to stress about glitches in the system and can focus on the couples she will marry.
