Officiant

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Buddhist, Christian (no denomination), Christian - Catholic, Hindu, Islam, Jewish, Muslim
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
Yes
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
YES! Many couples are choosing creative locations at the shore, in parks or gardens as well as banquet halls, restaurants and chapels. I am happy to serve you in the location of your choice.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
I usually wear a white suit with an Interfaith Stole, but I also have worn a clerical robe upon request. I once did an "all pajama" wedding! (Ask about it -- it's actually a touching story!)
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Absolutely. I work closely with each couple to determine their personal style and wishes. I want to give you a ceremony that reflects your authentic feelings.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
I allow the couple to write their own vows and provide helpful work sheets to assist in giving you great ideas.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
I offer several readings and am happy to have a couple choose anything of their own. My list is simply to save them time searching for the perfect reading.
How long are your ceremonies?
I always ask the couple what their preference is. Most venues have a half hour time allotment, and most couples request the ceremony to be shorter than this.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
I do not require counseling. If there are sensitive issues I need to be aware of for the wedding day, such are divorced families or strained relationships, I want to be prepared to help you have the best wedding day possible.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
A rehearsal on the day of the ceremony is included in my fee. A rehearsal on another day is slightly extra.
Do you supply a sound system?
Not at this time.

Rev. Lisa performed my cousin's ceremony a few years ago so when it came time for me to start planning our wedding my husband and I knew that all we needed to do was call her. She made everything so easy and relaxed. We were so excited to have everything so personalized and she offered great advice when it came to planning the day. Our wedding day was absolutely amazing and she made our ceremony so incredibly special. Our guests have been raving about how wonderful the ceremony was and how special she truly is.

Do you want your wedding ceremony to be unique and memorable, or just another day? Are you tired of attending long, dragged out, boring ceremonies where members of the clergy talk more about themselves and their affiliated religion, then the bride and groom and what their love means to them? If this is the case then please give yourself the day that you and your spouse truly deserve and choose Reverend Lisa as your officiant. Though she was extremely well organized and able to answer any questions that we had, our initial meeting and subsequent communications never had that cold, impersonal business transaction-like feel. Instead my bride and I found it easy to speak freely with her about our wishes. The level of warmth and comfort could easily rival the feel of being fireside with friends, drinking hot cider and reminiscing about old times. As previously stated by others, Lisa will send the bride and groom questions that will later be used to create a completely customized experience that you will never forget. When the ceremony takes place, your guests will not just be sitting in a room waiting to be dismissed to go to a reception. Lisa's unique delivery is so entertaining that she will pull them into the moment while still managing to keep the crowd's focus where it belongs...with the bride and groom. It isn't just her previous officiating experience or her performing arts background that allow her to do this. It is also due to the fact that she is a warm, heartfelt person who truly wants to create the best possible memory for you and your spouse. My wife and I could not have been more happy with our decision to choose Lisa for our officiant. Don't just take my word for it. Meet with her and see for yourself.

Reverend Lisa has came to a few gatherings my family has had, the most recent being my wedding. She did an absolutely wonderful job. We told her that our family is primarily Catholic and even though we were going down the non-traditional route of having our ceremony at our venue, she made it as close to Catholic as possible. She also asked my husband and I a few personal questions, that she shared during the ceremony, to make it more personal to the two of us. I don't know what we would have done with out her during the rehearsal and for the day of the ceremony. Everything was organized and beautifully done.

Reverend Lisa officiated our wedding in February. My wife was concerned that the time of the year we may contend with some weather issues. My reply was the odds of the weather being bad were statistically insignificant. Well the only Blizzard of the season was on our wedding day. It was horrible out. The shining moment was Reverend Lisa who showed despite the weather. She was also feeling a little under the weather at the time.
I cannot begin to tell you how many of the people who were at the wedding commented on the ceremony that she performed. It trulty was beautiful and personal. My wife and I watched the ceremony again last niight. If you are looking for one of a kind nuptuals You will be very impressed with the job she will do.

Reverend Lisa was amazing! We are so happy that we made her a part of
our wedding day. We found her online and when we met her in person
she seemed to be exactly what we were looking for and we were right.
We were impressed with her performance background and it really stood
out on the wedding day. She went through all the options for a ceremony with us. We knew we wanted a short, personal, non-religious
ceremony and that's exactly what we got (even better than we expected,
really). We each answered her questions over email and didn't share
our answers with each other. On the day of our wedding we were so
happily surprised with the ceremony that she wrote, it was really
beautiful. It was basically a story of how my husband and I feel
about each other. During the reception and in the weeks that followed
I honestly think that every guest commented on how wonderful and
personal the ceremony was. Many people said that it was the best
ceremony they've ever been to, that it was exactly what they wish they
had or would like to have one day, or that they were amazed at how they laughed and cried through the whole thing. Reverend Lisa made our day extra special and we strongly recommend her to anyone!

Reverend Lisa was the officiant for my wedding. She did an absolutely beautiful job of putting together a personalized and well-organized ceremony. Lisa was extremely easy to work with from the very beginning. She answered all of my questions and promptly responded to emails and phone calls. Our guests loved how the ceremony was personalized to represent my husband and I as individuals, as well as a couple. Before our wedding, Lisa asked my husband and I to fill out questions about each other. We did not share the answers to our questions with one another. During our ceremony, Lisa shared our responses to the questions with us and our guests. This was one of my favorite parts of not only our ceremony, but our whole wedding day. I loved hearing what my husband had written about me, and we thought this was a fabulous addition to our ceremony. So many of my guests raved about this and thought it was very unique. My husband and I met with several reverends, but no one made an impression on us the way that Lisa did. Lisa did everything we asked her to do during our ceremony and made us feel at ease throughout our entire planning process. I would highly recommend Reverend Lisa for anyone looking for a personalized, unique, and unforgettable wedding ceremony.
