Laura was our officiant at our wedding this past October and we couldn’t be more happy with our experience. My husband and I aren’t very traditional but some of our family members are and Laura made a beautiful blended ceremony where everyone could be happy. She met with us before hand, got to know us a bit, and went above and beyond her duties. She’s organized, punctual, and easy to talk to! We’re so blessed to have had her be apart of our wedding. Thank you, Laura!May 22, 2018Reverend Laura Phillips - LAPStudios's reply
Thank you Britt - That's exactly what I hope for!
We contacted Laura about 3 weeks before the wedding (4 weeks total from saying "Yes!" to saying "I do!"), and she was very understanding and open-minded to our wants and needs. She emailed us a version of what she wanted to say for the nuptials, and it was stunningly beautiful! I would highly recommend Laura!!!Jun 14, 2016VerifiedReverend Laura Phillips - LAPStudios's reply
Thank you Jessica! It was a beautiful setting and arrangement. Blessings to you and your family!
LOVE Rev Laura! We were blessed to find such a down to earth, funny, and amazing person to perform our ceremony! We are not especially religious people and she graciously with no judgement walked us through the whole process with amazing secular suggestions that were not only comfortable, but beautiful for the ceremony. We took her pre-marital classes and they were absolutely wonderful! They were about us and our family as well as our personalities. Although we have been together for 10 years, this was a great experience to learn even more about ourselves and get to know Laura on a new level. The day of the rehearsal it was raining out and Laura let us use her church for the whole group inside. She was amazing and professional. She led the group with ease, was clear, and had only my husband and I in mind. We will forever be thankful we found Laura (on thumbtack no less) and will keep in touch with her often! Any one would be lucky to have her officiate their ceremony of any kind!!!Mar 23, 2017Verified

Non-Religious Wedding Officiant
Our experience with Laura was outstanding! She came through for us when we needed a last minute officiant and our guests couldn't say enough about how beautiful the ceremony was. She was very pleasant to work with and listened to our needs and worked them into the service perfectly.Mar 25, 2016VerifiedReverend Laura Phillips - LAPStudios's reply

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a B.S. in Business Administration from the University of Missouri, and a Master of Divinity from Lexington Theological Seminary. I am ordained in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) though the majority of services I perform are either non-denominational, inter-religious or nonreligious. I serve a local congregation and speak in front of my church weekly. Yet I perform many services that are non-religious or some combination.
