Wedding Officiant

TL;DR: Minister Lisa is kind, affordable, reliable and professional. She went above and beyond to ensure we had a beautiful ceremony, and I would recommend her for any wedding without hesitation! Lisa was everything we had hoped for and more in our wedding officiant! From the first interaction, she was very kind, thorough and professional. After finding out we were having a smaller ceremony due to COVID-related travel restrictions, she offered to set up a Zoom meeting so our family that was unable to attend could at least watch. That was really special for us because we were already pretty overwhelmed having to replan a wedding during a pandemic, so we were very grateful she took the initiative and made that happen for us. Also, she recorded the Zoom meeting, so now we actually have video of our entire ceremony! On the day of the ceremony, she arrived early so she could set up the camera, and officiated a beautiful ceremony for us, exactly like we had discussed previously. Afterwards, we ran into an issue with the marriage license but Lisa was very understanding and didn't hesitate to sit down and enjoy the reception until the mix up was resolved. Overall, Lisa is a such a lovely person who really brought a beautiful energy to our wedding; she was as professional as she is affordable, and I would recommend her without hesitation!

We don’t have to go through all of the trials & tribulations of what it takes to plan a wedding during a pandemic but Minister Lisa was instrumental in making our matrimony blissful! The Brooklyn Bridge was the location of our ceremony but Mother Nature decided to change our plans. Minister Lisa was early to the location & when I told her about our concerns she sprung in to action. Commandeering elevated courtyard space at the Hotel we booked our honeymoon suite at, Minister Lisa’s diligence secured a spot on cloud 9 for my wife and I. Me and the Mrs. plan on staying in the clouds (so to speak) together for the rest of our lives & we can’t thank Minister Lisa enough for her positive energy & professionalism. PS. She ain’t a bad DJ either! She played heavenly music on her phone for us while we waited for the Bride. Sincerely, The Mr. & Mrs. Jarvis

Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Jarvis for the review! It was my pleasure to make your day as wonderful as it could be especially since Mother Nature had alternative plans. So happy I was able to find another location within the hotel that was at least scenic. LOL! Glad you liked and appreciated my DJing skills 😆. Happy holidays to you both!

Lisa is one of the best people I have ever came in contact with, September 21, 2019 Lisa married me and my wife and we could not have hired a better Wedding Officiant to marry us, she entertained our guest and told a story about our journey leading up to our marriage and it was great and heart felt, Lisa thank us so much and you did a great job and such a loving, caring and beautiful person.

Minister Lisa was so nice from the first time we met! Our wedding was scheduled for 6/12/20 but due to covid we moved it to 6/12/21... however, last minute we decided to get married on 7/5 and She was available and ready to go! She delivered a beautiful ceremony filled with amazing words and humor which fit our very small crowd. She also provided zoom for our family that could not be there! I wasn’t able to have a videographer but thanks to her I have the zoom recording. Lisa is amazing and when it’s time to renew our vows she’s the only one I will call!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My quote is based on the location of the ceremony and whether the couple want my participation in the rehearsal. I don’t have a standard fee but sensitive to the couples financial needs.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Text, call me or email me to discuss the details of your day.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am an ordained Minister with 7 years experience of uniting couples/plus vow renewals. I’m registered with NY State. I’ve officiated many unions.
