Are you getting married, thinking of renewing your wedding vows or looking for someone to perform a commitment ceremony? Do you want a special ceremony that is written specifically for the two of you? Would you like to have an officiant who will make sure your special day is done exactly the way you have dreamed of? Then look no further!

I am a non-denominational wedding officiant/celebrant residing in Avon, Ohio. As a mobile officiant, I come to you and your venue. Whether your ceremony is traditional or non-traditional, in a church, hotel, or garden, choose Celebrations by Shari to begin planning your new life together.

As a retired teacher of thirty years, I knew in selecting a new career it would need to be one that provided me with the same amount of joy teaching had. I suddenly realized that weddings are a perfect source of joy to brides, grooms, families, friends, and me. That is when I knew what the next chapters of my life should be spent doing -- working with couples to create a wedding ceremony that truly reflects who they are and the love they share.

I will work hard to personalize your wedding ceremony by reflecting the love and commitment shared by the two of you . I specialize in wedding, commitment, and vow renewal ceremonies. I believe your ceremony should be a reflection of the love the two of you share.

No two couples are the same. Therefore, each couple's wedding should be different, unique, and personal. I am able to write personal ceremonies, to suggest original ceremony ideas, and to assist you every step of the way with your wedding ceremony needs. I recently received the Top Officiant Award for the Cleveland Hot List.

Performing wedding ceremonies is my passion. Let my passion be your inspiration - together we will create a one-of-a-kind ceremony that you, your family and your friends will never forget. Read less

When looking for an officiant for a Lesbian wedding, we were a little concerned about finding the right fit. Our first meeting with Shari COMPLETELY erased any worries I had. I didn't realize how important a good officiant was until we met with her and I felt totally at ease. Not only is she an awesome person, she had SOOO many options for us to choose from. This was great because we really had no idea what we wanted to do. Shari rocks!

We would highly recommend Celebrations by Shari to anyone searching for officiants due to their top-notch professionalism and customer service. They were fantastic to work with and truly provided a memorable and engaging experience. It was a pleasure to work with Shari on the wording of our ceremony, and Brian did a fantastic job as our officiant. We can honestly say the ceremony was the best part of our wedding day!

Shari made our special day even better with her touches to the ceremony. I had several questions even just a few weeks before our wedding and she never hesitated to help. She always was there to answer the phone, text or email. Even when we had a crisis arise, she went above and beyond to try and make it better. I would recommend Celebrations by Shari for any couple planning a wedding.

I cannot say enough good things about Shari and her impeccable service. She was so easy to work with, always responded quickly, and made our wedding ceremony very special and tailored for us. Many of our guests even asked us how long we have known Shari! They thought she must be a family friend since the ceremony seemed so personal. Along with being a wonderful officiant, Shari is an amazingly sweet and kind person which made working with her even more special and stress-free. It was important to us that our ceremony be very thoughtful. Shari encouraged us to write our own vows and we are so happy that we did (although she gives plenty of wording options for vows if you choose not to write your own!). All I can say is that if Shari is available on your wedding date don't hesitate to book, you will be in good hands! Thanks Shari!

I cannot say enough good things about Shari. She was the perfect officiant for our big day. Sweet, well spoken, and loving. It's exactly what we wanted. She was so helpful leading up to our wedding, and would always email me back within hours. Her book of ceremony wording options was a lifesaver.

Everyone complimented how personal our ceremony was, and Shari hugged me a bunch of times that day. It makes us feel so great to have someone that was so personal and we feel like we could be friends with for years. Our bridal party gave us several compliments of how sweet she was.

We had thought for months we were going to have a family member get ordained and perform the ceremony and then about 2 months before it all fell through. I found Shari online and she responded to me immediately. She was booked for our day but set us up with her associate Brian Gibbons. Shari still handled all the correspondence until the day of. She sent us probably over 100 choices of wordings to pick and choose from and we ended up with a very personalized ceremony. Brian came to our rehearsal and was very easygoing. He looked and sounded very professional at our ceremony and we received a lot of compliments on it. Having only met Brian the day before, I felt very comfortable with him performing our ceremony. I feel very lucky that he was available so last minute. I felt the price was reasonable even with a small travel fee and fee to attend the rehearsal. He filed all of our paperwork for us.
