Lori specializes in unconvential and free spirited weddings, in intimate and romantic settings, such as restaurants, family homes, backyards, parks and by the lake.

Lori was lovely!

Lori was lovely as our wedding officiant! Her warm and caring personality made us feel at ease, and she took the time to get to know us as a couple. Lori's professionalism and attention to detail were reassuring. She guided us through the entire process, offering valuable suggestions and ideas while also being open to all of our own preferences. She delivered a beautiful ceremony that perfectly captured our love story. Throughout the ceremony, Lori's soothing and reassuring presence helped calm our nerves, making it a truly lovely experience. We couldn't have asked for a better officiant to be a part of our wedding day. We highly recommend Lori to anyone seeking a compassionate, dedicated, and talented officiant! Thank you Lori!

Like being married by a friend

Lori is warm and approachable and friendly. When you meet her, you feel like she’s a friend you’ve always had. (In fact, many of the guests thought she was a friend of the family because she was so welcoming.) Her ceremony program was simple, touching, and exactly perfect for us. I also appreciated the attention to detail and preciseness of her service and follow-up. Lori was outstanding and I’m grateful she officiated our day.

Lori made the whole process easy

Lori was great from our first call right through the wedding day. We didn’t know exactly what we wanted from the ceremony and Lori was very helpful - she gave suggestions and made it easy for us to make decisions.

I’d definitely recommend Lori.

Look no further!

From the first time we met with her over Skype in 2020, we knew Lori was the officiant we wanted for our wedding! Not only is she very knowledgeable and professional, but she is also a genuinely kind person and we immediately felt at ease in her hands.

She took genuine interest in getting to know our story and about us as a couple, and based off of our communications, created a beautiful and intimate ceremony that was very much 'us'; which is exactly what we wanted!

We received nothing but compliments following our ceremony and we couldn't recommend Lori enough to any couple planning a wedding. Having the right officiant for your special day is pretty important, and you can't go wrong with Lori!

So happy with our ceremony!

Throughout all of the changes that come with planning a wedding during a pandemic Lori was nothing but supportive and accommodating, we talked a few times over the phone and on Zoom and instantly knew we had made a great choice. She is so knowledgeable about the legal requirements of a marriage, different types/styles of ceremonies and had so many great suggestions to make sure our ceremony was tailored towards us as a couple, which was exactly what we wanted. Lori was such an asset to our wedding day and we would highly recommend her and her services!

Professional and a pleasure to have Lori as our wedding officiant

Lori was flexible, professional and a pleasure to work with! Me and my fiancée were looking for a wedding officiant to have our marriage signing completed when we met Lori. Lori provided valuable information to us and gave us recommendations, which we appreciate. I would recommend Lori to anyone looking to getting married or have their marriage signing completed!
