My family found Lori online and she seemed nice at the beginning but then she got lazy and only wanted to have phone conferences to discuss the wedding, she wanted a rehearsal for extra $70 but didn't show calling conveniently an hour before the scheduled rehearsal with her to cancel last minute, then the day of the wedding she never showed up. No phone call or anything, she was very unprofessional and ruined the wedding. We ended up without an officiant for our ceremony so the groom's father stepped up with his iPhone and we had to wing it. You can only imagine the great deal of stress we all had that day thanks to Lori Knight never showing or ever acting as a professional. Please save yourself the hassle and a stressful ruined wedding and DO NOT make the mistake we did by choosing her as your officiant.

I found Lori online so I contacted her to be our officiant. She was attentive at first and sent me tons of forms and other things to fill out. I filled out everything she requested and then sent it back immediately only for her to lose all of the paperwork a week before the wedding. I refilled everything out AGAIN and sent it back to her. She prided herself on writing unique vows for each couple she officiated. When I finally received our vows the were for Mike and Amy (not us) and everything in them was wrong. I alerted her of this and she quickly changed out the names and sent it back to me. I was feeling a little defeated and just decided to alter the vows myself and sent it back to her asking her to use what I sent. Our last phone conversation before the wedding consisted of her dog barking the entire conversation and her telling me that her dog was just excited because she wanted to be in my wedding and she even had a little brides dress. Sigh. I thought certainly she couldn't be serious and prayed that she did not show up with the dog on my wedding day. The night of the rehearsal dinner she showed up an hour and a half late explaining that she got lost. We ran through the ceremony a few times and she promised me that she would arrive at my ceremony the next day an hour before it started. The wedding started at 3pm and she arrived at 3:15. We started only after she announced to my entire wedding party and all of my guests that she might have to excuse herself during the ceremony to vomit because she was pregnant. The vows she read weren't the vows that she sent me or the ones I rewrote. I have no idea where they came from. She was frazzled, ill prepared and mispronounced names of the books in the bible. I started laughing nervously during the vows because it was turning into such a disaster. She promptly stopped the wedding and asked if I was okay and if I needed time to think about things! I asked her to please just skip ahead to the part about pronouncing us man and wife so we could just carry on with the rest of our day and put and end to this madness. She wanted to argue with me about it. The ceremony felt like it lasted for hours because I was so embarrassed. ( it was only 30 minutes) She is unprofessional and was not prepared in the least bit for my wedding. We ended up paying her nearly $600 for her services as well. Please save yourself the money and the embarrassment and hire someone else. At least we can all look back on this and laugh now but at the time I wanted to crawl under a rock. To the poster under this one - HW - be glad she didn't show up. ;) I'm sure your father's iphone ceremony was a ton better.

My husband is home bond, in a wheel chair. We were wanting to get married for a long time, but were afraid that a minister would not come to our house for the ceremony. On Monday, I called Angel Occasions, and found our Angel. Lori was polite and kind. She agreed to come to our house.

Our wedding was last night, it was a simple ceremony, but just what we needed.

We loved Lori, she was very professional and our guest loved the ceremony she wrote for us. My mother is very hard to please, but said that the ceremony was the best she ever attended.

I was the one that hired Rev. Lori Knight to perform our wedding ,and I was glad she was the officant for our ceremony. I interviewed several other ministers, but thier price was to high or thier personality just did not fit our needs.

We were supposed to write our own vows, but at the last minute neither my wife nor I could write down how we truly feel. Lori, stepped up and wrote the most bueatiful vows that told exactly how we felt for eachother.

My college roommate has already asked for Rev. Knight's contact information, so he can hire her for his June wedding.

My minister had a last minute emergency and was not able to officate at our ceremony, so a friend had recommended Rev. Lori Knight to us and i am glad she did. Lori met with us three days before our wedding and reassured us that our wedding with still be special, she really got to know us and made our ceremony very personal and special. After our ceremony relatives were very emotional at how bueatiful our wedding was. My maid of honor wants to use Lori as her officant next June. I would reccomend her services to anyone getting married.

Rev. Knight was very personable, she asked questions and listened to what David and I wanted our ceremony to be like and made wonderful suggestions. The price for her service was very resonable compared to other ministers I talked with.

We were not going to have a rehersal, but Rev. Knight has suggested we do becasue of the side of our wedding party, and i am glad we did, she conducted the rehearsal smothly and made everyone awear of what they were supposed to do ect.

Our ceremony was bueatiful, and I still get comments from family and friends, weeks after we got married. Our wedding ceremony will deffinetly be one to remember.

Rev. Knight FORGOT to show up at our wedding. When we finally called her an hour later she said she thought it was next week but would be right there. A half an hour later (she lives 5 min. away) She arrived just in time to start my outdoor wedding as the rain started pouring down. We relocated inside and she seemed flustered and confused. She kept trying to get everyone to move into a circle when we just wanted to keep going talking about how people used to do it in the sixties.(?) When it was over she explained to my husband that she thought our wedding was tomorrow night despite what she told me earlier. Then she asked him for the other 50$ she was owed. He gave it to her in the spirit of the day, but really? She forgets to show up and still charges us the remainder? DO NOT USE HER!!


After reading this review she sent me this email:

I read the review that you left on wedding wire. I do appoligized for the misunderstanding, I tired to explain the reason for the misunderstainding, and as you know i can not control the weather, however i am deeply sorry for any inconvince i may have caused you and Tim. You yourself said that you were not ready at 530. Had i showed up at 530 and we did not start the wedding on time, thier would have been an extra charge. So perhaps things worked out for the best.

With all of Gods Love, I wish you and Tim a long and happy life together.
