My wife and I contacted Lori and initially wanted to hire her to do a smaller sized wedding we had been planning. We ended up changing our plans and decided we wanted to get married in TWO weeks with just our witnesses. Lori told us she would still be our officiant and would do everything in her power to give us our perfect little ceremony. We went back and fourth editing the ceremony she wrote for us, and within a week she had our perfect ceremony written. Lori was amazing and supportive through our plan change and we couldn't be happier with our vows and ceremony she put together for us.Apr 18, 2019Verified
Lori was wonderful. We were able to create the perfect ceremony for our special day. She was professional, quick to respond and connect when needed and arrived when we asked her to on our wedding day. We have no complaints. We highly recommend Lori!Sep 5, 2018Verified
Lori was really flexible when it came to my wedding! My husband and I planned our wedding in six weeks and are not local (we live in WV but had our wedding in RI) but Lori was willing to take us on! She let us customize our wedding ceremony to fit our personalities, which was wonderful. She also gave us discrete directions during the ceremony so we knew what to do next to not look silly in front of our loved ones. We would recommend Lori in a heartbeat!Dec 28, 2016Verified
Extremely professional and is open to doing many different types of ceremonies. She officiated our medieval ceremony and donned my beautiful dragon velvet cape to add to the atmosphere. She performed handfasting as well. Beautiful person with a wonderful personality and presence. I highly recommend her as an officiant. :-)Sep 23, 2015Verified
Lori was a pleasure to work with. She was proffessional and friendly. She also customized a wedding ceremony for my husband and I which made our wedding day that much more special!Sep 23, 2014Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I do have a standard pricing system - my basic wedding ceremony is $200, this includes the wedding rehearsal.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to speak with my customers to find out what they are looking for in a ceremony. I then mail or email my wedding packet for them to overlook and schedule a time to meet. After the initial meeting we correspond with each other and make sure that I am giving them the exact type of ceremony that they are looking for on their Special Day.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am an Ordained Minister through the Universal Life Church, I am also a Certified Wedding Planner as well as a Certified Wedding Officiant.
