Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life -- and the wedding ceremony itself is the very beginning of your life together as a married couple. After your wedding day, when you look back, most likely the parts you will remember best, and most fondly, are the feelings you had during your ceremony, and the moment that you were pronounced husband and wife.

No matter what the size of your wedding, your ceremony can be as simple or customized as you like --it's YOUR wedding day and YOUR ceremony! As your officiant, I take the time to get to know the two of you, and to work with you, constructing your ceremony to make it something that is truly unique and reflective of who you are as a couple. There are no "rules" as to what must be included in a wedding ceremony, other than your consent to be married and my pronouncement of you as husband and wife -- the rest is flexible!

I serve the Central Florida area -- Orlando, Winter Park, Lake Mary, and all surrounding areas. I'm on the Disney Fairytale Weddings "Preferred Officiant" list, and specialize in adding that extra-magical Disney touch to your ceremony!

You can reach me by email at lovelyceremony@gmail.com, by phone at 386-717-0303, or on my website at www.lovelyceremony.com. I look forward to hearing from you! Read less

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Non-religious Ceremony
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes -- in fact, since I'm a secular officiant, I do not perform ceremonies in religious locations. Most ceremonies I perform are at a wedding venue, a country club, a hotel ballroom, a park, and so on.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
Business attire -- a black suit with a neutral-colored shell underneath. If there is a specific request -- for example, for a beach wedding, or for a specific color choice of shell under my suit, I am always flexible.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Absolutely! Each ceremony I perform is different, just like each couple I marry is different. Wording can be included that has humor, references to funny stories about the couple, hobbies, pets, or anything else (in good taste, of course!). This makes each couple's ceremony unique and special!
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Again, absolutely! A wedding ceremony is a very special and personal event, and the couple's words to each other as they are married should reflect what THEY want to say -- NOT what someone else THINKS they should say!
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
I do have samples, to show ideas, and couples are welcome to use wording from those samples -- but it's not a MUST that only these samples must be used! Some of the best ceremony readings come from ones that the bride or groom finds and suggests! I'm also willing to research wording, readings, or any other elements that the couple requests -- for example, for a dog-loving couple, I found a wonderful verse about "Falling in Love is Like Owning a Dog," that fit perfectly into their ceremony! 
How long are your ceremonies?
Depending on the couple's choices, ceremonies can run anywhere from 5 minutes to 25 minutes. I advise couples not to make ceremonies too long so that they, and their guests, are not fatigued before the reception even starts!
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No, I do not. Most premarital courses are faith-based, and as a secular officiant, that is not in my range of service.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes, I am willing to attend and/or coordinate a rehearsal. There is an additional fee for this service. I do encourage couples who are having more than 20 guests to hire the services of a "day-of" coordinator, if they're not already using a planner. It makes for a much more relaxed wedding day!
Do you supply a sound system?
If requested, I can bring microphones and an amplifier that will work for a park or a small-to-medium size room.

Renee was a pleasure to work with, and a very "down to earth" person. She had wonderful ideas with the ceremony which made our wedding PERFECT! Renee was very good keeping in contact with you and making sure things were in order. She even helped out with our marriage license, and making it so easy and convenient for us. During the ceremony, Renee was soft-spoken and really made Mike and I comfortable and relaxed throughout the entire time. I would honestely recommend Renee to ANY couple! =)

My husband and I had originally planned on having a family friend officate for us because we wanted our wedding to be as personal as possible. When that fell through, I was heartbroken...until I found Renee.

From the moment we met her, my husband and I knew she was the right person for us. Renee helped us personalize every part of our ceremony. Most of our work was done via email because we were so busy with moving during the planning process, which helped us immensely. She was always available whenever we had questions. Her fee is absolutely reasonable and she is worth every single penny we paid her.

My husband and I knew we wanted some non-traditional parts to the ceremony, and Renee was more than happy to help us with that. We threw flowers to pick the official witnesses, had a ring warming ceremony, an unplugged wedding, and had many references to The Hobbit. Renee was instrumental in making sure that our guests understood exactly why we did all of the non-traditional things that we did. If I had a nickel for every time during the reception how much a guest loved the ceremony, I could have paid for the whole wedding!

I loved every part of my time working with Renee, and so did my husband. I cannot recommend her highly enough. If you can book her for your wedding, you absolutely should. You will not be disappointed with anything she does!

What can we say that hasn't already been said?! We absolutely LOVED working with Renee and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant that will make their ceremony memorable and unique. Renee was genuinely interested in getting to know us as a couple and we instantly felt comfortable with her. Every aspect of the ceremony was tailored to reflect who we are and what is important to us. We still receive compliments from our guests about how personalized (and emotional!) the ceremony was. We are so happy we chose Renee to marry us and we couldn't imagine it any other way!

Renee is absolutely wonderful!! Right from the first phone call, I knew that the ceremony would end up being exactly how we imagined. Renee worked diligently with my husband and I to create the perfect ceremony and vows. She got to know us over phone calls and E-mails beforehand, and was always immediately available and replied to E-mails instantly. The ceremony and vows perfectly reflected our feelings for each other and matched our personalities, and our wedding was so memorable and tailored to us thanks to her. From the first consultation through the now, Renee has been professional, prompt, calming, and fun. We are so grateful that we found her and cannot imagine our big day without her! If we ever renew our vows, we will definitely seek Renee's services again!

Renee was so wonderful from beginning to end. She takes great pride in what she does. To this day we get compliments of our wedding ceremony. During the planning of our wedding my husband and I went back and forth about a traditional or custom wedding, well choosing a custom wedding is something we will forever be greatful of. Renee helped us all the way through it. I cant thank her enough for making our ceremony perfect. Although it rained on our wedding day and being soaked in the end it was still perfect. I will most certainly recommend her to anyone looking for a memorable ceremony. :)

I'll be honest-I first found Renee online and was drawn to her picture. In just one tiny photo, I swore I saw the kindness and compassion that I was looking for in a wedding officiant. It could have been the wedding planning excitement talking, but either way I found myself on her blog, growing even more sure about my first impression. From the very first email I sent Renee, she was incredible to work with. Patient, knowledgeable, and always flexible. She was even willing to drive nearly two hours from her home on the day of our wedding to be our officiant, which I know was an extra special exception. Renee made the ceremony planning the least of our worries, and allowed us to worry more about the things that don't end up mattering anyway. Things like checking the weather report 4 weeks before the wedding and deciding how many types of wine to buy from Costco.
The day of, Renee was right where she was needed the most, exactly when she said she would be. On the porch of the bride's cabin, glowing with maternal pride and complimenting the bride's hair, dress, and the sunflowers she was holding.
Even though we had only met Renee once in person before the wedding, it truly felt like we had known her for years as she confidently guided us through the perfect ceremony. She even had tissues ready when the groom blew snot nearly 10 feet after hearing the bride's vows to him.
We're nearly two months out from the wedding, but I am still hearing from friends and family how beautiful and creative our ceremony was. My uncle who has probably been to a wedding every year for close to 40 years now, told me it was the most genuine, thoughtful ceremony he had ever attended and that he was grateful to have been a part of it.
If you are looking for someone to create something custom and creative and guide you the whole way while still giving you the reins to put your own personal touches in, stop looking here because Renee is your woman. :-)
Sincerely,
Nicole Hoag

Renee was so wonderful to work with. She took everything we said into consideration and helped us mold the perfect ceremony for our personalities and wedding type. She really listened and got to know us before creating a generic wedding ceremony. Renee was also easy to communicate with and got back to emails quickly. Years from now, if we choose to renew our vows, we will definitely ask Renee to do us the honor of remarrying us. We look forward to keeping in touch with Renee through the years! Thank you, Renee!

As Renee told my uncle, who had never been to an "offbeat" ceremony before, she may look straight laced but appearances can be deceiving! Renee went above and beyond our expectations for a ceremony and helped us truly turn what is usually, in my opinion, a boring wedding ceremony into one that was truly our own.

Renee was great and so friendly from the start! She specializes in customizing your ceremony as much or as little as you would like and has plenty of creative ideas if you need help! We met with her a couple of times before the wedding and went back and forth through emails/calls many times before we got our ceremony just right so she is not afraid to put in the work and is also easy to contact! I would definitely recommend Renee Silverman for your upcoming wedding if you are looking for someone fun to work with and passionate about what they do! Thanks again Renee!

As I started planning our wedding, one of the things I knew I wanted for sure was that the person that would marry us was a friend or family that knew us. I didn't want a random officiant that had no clue as to our personalities or what we liked or didn't like. When I asked the friend we had in mind, if he would be able to marry us he had to regretfully decline due a prior commitment. My fiance at the time then thought that the best alternative would be to be married at the courthouse. "Hey if a stranger is going to marry us, might as well make it cheap!"
However, with some persuasion and help from my FIL we decided to look for officiants.
We met with Renee one afternoon and 5 min into our meeting I knew that this was the person I wanted to marry us. It's like she had known us her whole life! She was so wonderful and sweet. We were going to have a unconventional wedding and never did she make us feel like what we were doing was not ok or persuaded us to do things different. After some emails back and forth we put together the ceremony of my dreams. I could not have asked for anything better. It was so us! I am beyond thrilled that we found each other. Our wedding would not have been the same without Renee. She is professional, responds to emails super quick and guides you every step of the way. I don't think of her as just the person that married us but a friend!
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Renee!

My husband and I have both been married before and when we decided to get married, our thought was to elope, to make it simple and romantic without all the hustle and bustle like our previous weddings. I had called many places and searched for ideas and none of them seemed right for us. Then one night I ran across Renee's website and called her number right away, she answered, and that started our journey to our August 23, 2013 wedding date in Orlando, Florida. Renee is amazing. I would text her with a question and she always texted back. I would call, she answered. Miles away from each other yet we had constant communication. I told her our story, that this was our 2nd time around and that we wanted something intimate and meaningful, she understood exactly what we were searching for. We didnt meet Renee until our wedding day but it was as if an old friend attended our wedding. We were so comfortable with her as she made a nervous day a very soothing one. We were so blessed on our wedding day, the weather and setting were stunning but nothing compared to the intimate ceremony she had prepared for us. A day we will cherish forever. Thanks to Renee Silverman for making a 2nd marriage feel like a 1st. We plan to renew our vows again one day and we wouldn't hesitate to ask her to be our officiant. Thank you Renee for giving us our fairytale wedding.

When my husband and I started looking for an officiant, we had trouble finding someone who was not religious. Then, one day, while perusing through offbeatbride.com, I found Renee from A Lovely Ceremony. I decided to send her an email.
Renee responded within hours of my first email (I later realized that she almost ALWAYS responds within hours), she was free for our wedding day and we decided to meet a few weeks later.
When we met, I immediately realized that I wanted Renee from A Lovely Ceremony to officiate our wedding ceremony. She was so sweet, so upbeat, so enthusiastic about every ideas that we had. And, above all, she is a wonderful listener. We talked about us as individuals and as a couple, what we liked to do, together or separately. It was obvious that Renee was trying to really get to know us. She also made great suggestions like reading a extract from Dr. Seuss.
The day of wedding, she was so sweet and did a wonderful job, even going above and beyond by providing us with a prop that we had forgotten. Throughout the ceremony, Renee looked so genuinely happy and benevolent, I am so glad we chose her.
If we ever decide to renew our vows, I know that we will ask Renee from A Lovely Ceremony to officiate our ceremony.
Renee, if you are reading this, thank you so much, for making our day so special and for being part of the first page of the next chapter of our life.

Renee is absolutely awesome! At our ceremony in July of this year, we were blessed to have Renee as our officiant. She is extremely compassionate, personable, and sincere, and she made the most important part of our special day just perfect. Renee took the time to meet with my then-fiancé and I for over an hour several months before the ceremony. She took the time to get to know us as a couple, and to understand our values, beliefs, and priorities. She incorporated all she learned about us during our meeting with her in an adorably personal ceremony that made us feel unique and valued as a couple. Please know that Renee is completely accepting of everyone; we have a somewhat non-traditional family, and it was important to my husband and I to choose an officiant who respected our family members and made everyone feel comfortable. Renee did exactly that. Some advice if you make the smart choice to let Renee make your special day perfect: Let her put her personal touches in your ceremony rather than try to follow a rigid plan. That was her advice to us and we are oh so grateful that we followed it. Thank you, Renee! We love you! Gen and Jordan, July 6, 2013

Renee Silverman was by far the best officiant for which we could have ever hoped. She was always available for questions with a pleasantly cheerful disposition and she provided a very personalized service. Thanks to her, we were able to customize so much of our ceremony that we feel we can confidently say no one else has ever been married as we have. Such customization options made this a very fun an engaging experience. The sentiment behind this testimonial extends beyond myself and my bride as every guest we invited could not help but compliment us on our beautiful ceremony with many questions about how it was conceived, to which we always replied, "with a lot of guidance courtesy of Renee Silverman." If marriage customs were any different than what they are and I could marry my wife over and over again, I would ask Renee to officiate every single one of them just to see exactly how flexible and creative we could be with all of the ceremony options she provides.

We organised our wedding from Scotland before travelling to Orlando. On contacting 'A lovely Ceremony' the service and help from start to finish was exceptional. Renee was great and helped us with all the legalities and any time we contacted her we got an immediate response and she was happy to help in any way she could.
The actual process of compiling the service was so simple. Renee had lots of example services that she sent through to us and we were able to pick and choose what suited us best. There was the option for Renee to compile the service as well, nothing was a problem.
After the service Renee took the marriage license and lodged it with the court and then when we returned from our honeymoon our marriage license was waiting for us back in Scotland.
I would recommend Renee to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding.

My wedding would not have been the same without Renee. My husband and I decided to plan our fairytale wedding at Walt Disney World, Florida. Since we live in the D.C. area, we had to hire all of our vendors 'sight unseen'. I shopped online for months looking for the perfect person to perform our non-traditional wedding ceremony. I wanted someone who would help me design a custom ceremony that really fit us and would be something as special and unique as we are. That someone was Renee. I have no doubt in my mind that she was the perfect person for our wedding. I spoke with her many times over the phone, and she really got to know who we are and what we were looking for. She spent time researching ideas and assisted me greatly in finding the perfect words that my husband and I would be vowing to each other that day. She quickly responded to any and all questions I had, she made suggestions and helped me put together a ceremony that was perfect from start to finish. She was flexible, responsive and professional. She even helped advise me on music and other wedding elements when I was having difficultly putting it all together. During the ceremony, Renee spoke every word with passion and sincerity, but also kept the tone of the wedding upbeat and happy (it was Disney after all!). I loved having her as our officiant, she was perfect. A fairy godmother to start off our happily ever after.

We absolutely loved Renee (pronounced Ree knee)! Her service was so beautiful, and exactly what we wanted. She listened to our needs and crafted a ceremony that reflected our spirit and love, and wording that expressed a marriage built upon the foundation of friendship. I especially loved the Dr. Seuss poem "Oh, The Places You'll Go" that she suggested. As we had arrived to our ceremony in a sea plane, the poem perfectly mirrored our entrance with the phrase,
"You'll be on your way up!
You'll be seeing great sights!
You'll join the high fliers
who soar to high heights."
We had a friend do that reading, and everyone loved it. I still have guests talking about our wedding.

In particular, I wanted to share that I had many guests comment on her professionalism, wonderful wording, and overall perfect ceremony. She was a wonderful choice for our wedding, and I couldn't have been happier with my ceremony!

My husband and I, avid roller coaster fans and self-professed "theme park nerds", had a "destination elopement" wedding at Disney World. Without a doubt, Renee is the best decision we made about our wedding. We didn't want our ceremony to be the same ceremony that a lot of other people have. We have been to many weddings, and often, the ceremonies all sound the same or very similar. That's just not us! Luckily, that's not Renee, either. From the start, Renee was sweet, kind, understanding, and excited about working with us. She got to know us as a couple and she used that knowledge to craft the perfect ceremony to start our marriage. Planning our ceremony with Renee was fun and easy. Renee worked her magic, weaving it all together, adding personalized touches that included a mention of our engagement at the Haunted Mansion, a reading about roller coasters, and Dr. Seuss. Without a doubt, it was the perfect ceremony for US, about US! Nothing we didn't want, and everything we wanted and more. Hearing Renee perform our ceremony was amazing. She has awesome stage presence and a wonderful speaking voice. Her communication skills are excellent and she was always quick to get back to me on every question I had, and she kept me "in the loop" during the whole process, which really put me at ease. She was very understanding about the 6 month window I had to book our Memories wedding with Disney, and she kept us in mind and even sent me an e-mail wishing me good luck the night before I called Disney's Fairytale Weddings to book our big day. I feel so lucky that we found Renee. Our officiant was very important to us, and as soon as we decided to get married at Disney World, the first thing we did was look for the perfect officiant. We found her!! I never worried for one moment about our ceremony. Working with Renee was the least stressful part about planning our wedding! To sum it up, Renee was perfect, our ceremony was perfect, and we could not be happier!!

My husband and I recently married at Disney's Polynesian Resort through Disney's Fairytale Weddings. Being from North Dakota, we planned an intimate destination wedding. Disney provided us with a list of vendors, but were unsatisfied with the selection of officiants. We were blessed to come across Renee and her services through weddingwire.com , A Lovely Ceremony, and she provided just that! She was always available for long distance planning via email, cell phone, and Skype. She was kind and was willing to travel over 2 hours to receive our wedding license when our's failed to be delivered on time in ND. She really personalized our ceremony and helped coordinate our events. Renee's kindness and dedication to providing a truly unique ceremony for a couple is what makes her an excellent officiant. She is just an outstanding lady to work with and recommend her for anyone who is interested in having a beautiful, "lovely ceremony."

She completely walked us through the process of developing this one-of-a-kind ceremony that was so perfect for us. She helped to make the entire process as stress free as possible. After our ceremony she provided us with a keepsake copy of our vows and entire ceremony, printed on gorgeous ivory cardstock.

Renee was absolutely wonderful! We found her through a referral and I am so thankful for that. She actually was our third go at finding an officiant for our wedding, "third times a charm" certainly applies!

I knew it from the very beginning that I made a great decision when she returned my call so quickly for some information. She was out of town yet still had the time to communicate with me. Our first meeting was at our convience, she is very flexible and understanding of busy schedules. Any questions that came up during the process were quickly addressed and she always touched base with us.
Our ceremony was perfect and I owe it to Renee :) She really fed off us as a couple and made our ceremony unique to us. She guided us through everything.

I'd also like to say that I really appreciated how simple she made the process. I had no concerns about anything, she communicated with our other vendors to make sure everything went smoothly. She also provided a copy of our vows printed on pretty paper the day of wedding, such a great keepsake! Her services even took care of making sure that our final documents were sent off. She sure did send it off quickly, we got our license that week!

I would recommend her to ANY couple that would want a warm, kind professional to perform their ceremony.

Last weekend my husband and I were married by Renee, A Lovely Ceremony, in Port Orange, Florida. From our first meeting up until the ceremony, Renee was spectacular. If we had any questions she was more than willing to answer them for us. When we got "stuck" while trying to figure out what we wanted for our ceremony, she took the time to work with us to figure out what it was we really wanted. Renee promised us that she would make sure our ceremony went as smootly as possible and that it would be spectacular, and it was! Her personity, love, and passion for officiating was amazing and she delivered all three of these things through the wonderful service she provided us. We couldn't have found anyone more willing to work with us or anyone more honest, sincere, and straight up as Renee at A Lovely Ceremony. We will never forget our wedding, but more so, we will never forget our magnificent ceremony. Thank You Renee - for making our day perfect!

Much love,

As my [wife] and I faced the daunting task of planning a Florida wedding from our home in Philadelphia, we quickly came to understand, not without some anxiety, that we were essentially hiring strangers to play critically important roles in our wedding. It was clear to us that everyone we hired needed to be thoroughly researched, as we had to attain the highest level of comfort with everyone in our wedding. After an exhaustive online search, we were delighted to find the perfect Officiant in Renee Silverman. I initiated contact by calling Renee. She promptly returned my voicemail and we spoke at length. I found Renee to be friendly, kind, patient, funny and always professional. After the first conversation, I was convinced that she was perfect for our wedding. We spent some more time getting to know each other as my fiancée (at the time) joined in the second call. She too was immediately enamored with Renee. We hired her on the spot. In the days, weeks and months to follow, Renee went out of her way to simplify the process of developing a ceremony that fit our personalities. She sent us sample ceremonies, and helped us to edit ours, in order to maintain clarity and tradition. Renee kept us at ease by always responding to communication in a timely manner. She addressed all of our concerns, and frequently initiated contact just to check in and see how we were doing. On the day of the wedding, Renee arrived early, dressed professionally, and we finally had the pleasure of meeting her in person. The ceremony was perfect – everything that we had hoped for and more. Incidentally, Renee did not deviate from the wording that we agreed upon (something I was especially insistent upon). Our special day was a perfect day and Renee played a significant role. It is with the highest of standards of excellence that I recommend Renee Silverman’s services as a wedding Officiant.

We had very special requests for our ceremony to include a little tradition with both Jewish and Christian representations, humor and sentiment....she blended it all beautifully!! Renee took the time to meet with us, speak to us over the phone and via email (whichever was most convenient to us). We received drafts of our ceremony in order to ensure she captured our requests, and it was never an issue to change anything. She was very easy to work with and made sure we knew what to expect every step of the way. It was fun and completely stress-free!

Marriage is very personal and often the individual who officiates is not acquainted personally with the couple to be married. What we found exceptional was that she spent time with us to ensure our day was "ours" and not some preconceived idea. Renee is caring and finds joy in her role of sharing the special occasion of marriage. You will find that Renee will ensure the ceremony is as memorable as the rest of your wedding day.

We were very comfortable with Renee from the moment we met her. She made a point of explaining that she wants all of her couples to be happy with their ceremony and that she is open to any and all suggestions. One very important thing that Renee added to our ceremony was humor. Our ceremony took place outside on a very windy day and as I was walking down the aisle and throughout the ceremony the arch was on the verge of blowing over. Instead of this ruining the moment, Renee helped make it a funny and memorable part of our ceremony. One unique aspect that we included in our ceremony is a ring blessing. Before the exchange of rings my husband and I passed our rings through our immediate family to allow them to give their own personal (and silent) blessing on our marriage. At that time Renee also asked for the rest of our guests to also silently bless our rings with out holding them. Renee was very receptive to this idea and worked out the wording for this part of the ceremony to great effect.

Look her up on OneWed, she has many more reviews there.

She was wonderful. Absolutely, helps you decide what you would like in your ceremony and does it completely your way. Very professional and she really made our ceremony special. We had a military wedding during a Veteran's Memorial Ceremony and she adapted to all of our needs and completely made our day memorable. I would and will recommend her to anyone's wedding ceremony! She makes a visit to plan the ceremony prior to and then even calls to go over everything a day before. This was all done in her price for the ceremony.
She was wonderful. Absolutely, helps you decide what you would like in your ceremony and does it completely your way. Very Read more...

Renee made our wedding day very easy for us. She arrived and made sure that everything was in order and ready to go. She worked with the harpist, DJ, and photographer very well and when an issue came up during the ceremony (and the guests had to wait a little longer) she improvised and everything turned out perfect. We would highly recommend Renee for anyone's wedding as she will work with you to make sure it is unique and exactly what you want.

Renee did a wonderful job with our ceremony. We pieced it together from our own ideas, hers, and a mix of different ceremonies and our personalities. The result was a meaningful and unique ceremony. We were complimented on it so much for how powerful and one of a kind it was.
Through the entire process Renee stayed upbeat and positive. The ceremony went perfectly, and she walked us through everything, keeping us so comfortable and allowing us to focus on the words we were hearing and saying.
