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

We contacted Shari after searches and also finding out a collegue used her. Shari wasn't available for our day but instead had a few other officiants she works with that were available. We chose Brian to perform our ceremony however Shari stayed involved, including looking over the wording for the ceremony. Brian worked seamlessly with the wedding coordinator for our venue, was professional, and he consistently made sure to ask everyone in the wedding party if there were any questions. He (and Shari) were responsive throughout the process, available for whatever questions we had and also patient with us as we drug our feet finalizing details. Brian and Celebrations by Shari absolutely contributed to a perfect day for us and we would highly reccomend them to anyone!

Shari is a wonderful person, first and foremost, and an excellent officiant. She was extremely sensitive to our needs, our rookie status of not knowing what we were doing, and our nerves - she answered all of our questions, sometimes twice, and calmed our nerves, and was very communicative throughout the process. Her ceremony was done at a great pace, allowing everyone enough time to savor the moment - she was calm, assured, well-spoken, creative, and assuring. We would not hesitate to recommend Shari to anyone in the market for an officiant and we would in fact hope that they stop here after reading this review and book her. We do not imagine anyone exceeding her service and product. She is forever a part of the wonderful memories of what turned out to be an absolutely perfect weekend. Couldn't have done it without her.

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 love Shari, and we absolutely adore her daughter, Kristen! Shari had a last minute conflict, and Kristen officiated our wedding on July 9, 2016. We could not have asked for a more beautiful ceremony! Kristen was so in tune with what Kevin (groom) and the guys needed help with! She even helped them put there boutonnieres on!!! Kristen made it a truly wonderful, easy process!

What can we say except "We love Shari Caruso!" After almost 18 years together my partner and I got married this summer and it was more wonderful than we could have imagined. Shari made sure the ceremony was exactly as we wanted, and while it was non-traditional in every sense of the word, it was heartfelt and beautiful. Even though we knew Shari personally prior to her officiating our ceremony, she truly cares for all her clients and wants everyone's wedding day to be memorable. Believe me when I say that if you choose Shari you will not be disappointed.

Shari was great to work with from the start. she was always very responsive and open to any questions. We emailed a lot during our process. I didn't get the pleasure to meet her due to being chosen to go on a mission trip (which I thought was awesome). Shari asked was it ok if she found another officiant within her group. I told her of course this was a great opportunity for her to go on this mission trip and I wouldn't let her miss it for the world. She blessed us with Andrae Hampton who was great through the last month of the process. He helped us with rehearsal, along with ceremony set up of chairs due to having an outdoor ceremony. If you want a fantastic company please hire celebrations by Shari.

Once we talked to Shari, we knew we had found the person we wanted to marry us. She had the right personality for us, was extremely professional and accommodating, and sent us wording choice options that were better than any ones we could have thought of ourselves. She also was very flexible and allowed us to customize our ceremony the way we wanted. Her price was reasonable and she made sure that we reviewed and approved the wedding content, price, and wording in advance to make sure there were no misunderstandings. The day of our wedding she arrived promptly and made everyone feel at ease immediately. She took care of everything and even followed up by sending me information about how to change my name legally. We cannot say enough good things about Shari - she was perfect and we would highly recommend her to anyone considering getting married!
