As a photographer at a wedding that Lauren officiated in Boulder, I have to say that I have never witnessed such a beautiful and personalized wedding ceremony in all the weddings I've attended. She had a graceful presence, a very audible voice and tone, and the most touching, heartfelt words. The guests at the wedding, along with the couple, were laughing one minute and crying the next. It was just so authentic and real - something you don't see with a lot of standard officiants these days. I was wowed, and so were guests and the couple. I heard guests raving about the incredibly beautiful ceremony throughout the entire wedding.
It was clear that Lauren really took the time to learn her clients as both individuals and a couple. She sat down with them and communicated with them every step of the way, to make sure the ceremony would be as perfect as they'd imagined.
She also gave the couple plenty of options for verbiage to help get them started, and inspire them, and then let them make their choices according to their personal style and their own personal stories. Getting to know her clients and adding a personal flair and touch seems to be Lauren's specialty - and what sets her apart from other bland, less involved, or less dedicated officiants out there.
I will never forget that wedding, and it's because the ceremony was so well developed and displayed. You could feel the connections within everyone. You could see the love and hear it. Lauren's officiating is fresh, vibrant, and unique. It really made an impression on everyone attending and set the wedding up to meet an immeasurable standard.
