How she works
Lori begins with an initial Skype or phone call so she can learn about who you are as a couple and begin to plan a customized ceremony. She will then send you her favourite ceremony via email so together you can start adding on the personal elements to that content. Once the ceremony is completed, you have the option to meet in person to walk through and rehearse the ceremony at her office. She is available for full rehearsals at the venue as well if you wish.

Perfect ceremony, amazing experience!

I just got married this past NYE (yay!), in an event we planned about 5 weeks in advance. You'd honestly be surprised what you can accomplish in just over a month of planning, but despite this, I was still a little concerned about having enough time to find the right person to officiate our ceremony.
I can safely say that I would have chosen Lori even if I had all the time in the world to choose. She works to tailor everything to you, as a couple – whatever your idea of the ‘perfect’ ceremony is, she will cater exactly to that. We received a number of compliments afterward and I even had my new sister-in-law (recently engaged) reach out after and ask for Lori’s info. I think wedding officiants are interesting because they perform such a big role in your day but most of the time, you don’t know them at all personally. With Lori, this is inconsequential. She honestly rocks and I’d highly recommend her to anyone!
Weddings with Lori's reply:Thank you so much, Calder, for this lovely review! I am quite moved! :) Performing your ceremony was a beautiful way to bring 2018 to a close, and to welcome in a joyful 2019! Wishing you two all the best and much love!

Heartfelt, beautiful ceremony. Exactly what we wanted
Lori created the most beautiful wedding ceremony for us this past Saturday. She is an amazing public speaker and does so with confidence and grace.Sent on 20/11/2018
I knew right away during our initial Skype meeting that she was exactly what we were looking for - she’s warm, personable, genuine, and completely flexible in customizing the ceremony. We met with Lori a few days ahead of the ceremony to do a walk through - she was extremely organized and put our minds completely at ease.
Guests have been giving me compliments about how heartfelt and simple our ceremony was, which is exactly what we wanted. We cannot thank Lori enough for being a part of our day and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding.
Weddings with Lori's reply:Thank you, Stephanie, I am quite overwhelmed! Right from day one it was a pleasure working with the two of you, and it was an honor and a real joy to be a part of your beautiful wedding day. Wishing you both much love!
