Welcome to Ceremonies of the Heart, one of the proud winners of the 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011 & 2010 Couples and Brides Choice Awards!


Creating a wedding ceremony that's meaningful, warm and uniquely yours, be it spiritual, interfaith, religious, or civil, means more than selecting vows and readings.

You and your fiance/partner are unique people. So are your histories, story, relationship to family and friends, your personal tastes, desires, goals, dreams and vision for your wedding day. Your wedding ceremony is a reflection of all of this and more. It is an invitation to explore what it is you wish to celebrate, honor and commit to as you move forward together in a loving marriage.

As a Celebrant, Officiant and Interfaith/Non-denominational Minister, my passion and commitment is to form a fun, caring and compassionate relationship in which we can explore possibilities and co-create a unique and memorable wedding ceremony. Our process begins as we spend time getting to know each other and ensuring that there is a good fit between us. Once we have decided to work together, we will discuss all the steps involved and agree upon a time line for the co-creation of your ceremony.

Throughout this planning process, I am available for consultation and coaching as needed. On the day of your ceremony, I will help you to remain calm and experience all the joy the day has to offer you. I welcome the opportunity to work with you. Please visit my reviews to see what people are saying about me, and then call for a free consultation. Massachusetts, New England and Beyond


Warm Regards and Blessings

LisaAnn was great. She took a lot of time and care to help us craft a ceremony which fit our desires. We had a small wedding and it went great. LisaAnn met with us several times in person and via Skype to go over the details of our wedding. We are very happy with how everything went and have great memories from our special day!

Thanks to LisaAnn, we had the most perfect wedding ceremony. She is committed and took the time to really get to know us. Our ceremony was so personal and heartfelt. We had so many people tell us that our ceremony was the best they had seen. We couldn't be happier!

LisaAnn is a blessing. She did not just officiate our wedding, she made deep connections with both my now husband and myself in order to make our ceremony the most special we'd ever experienced. We still have guests commenting on the unique, warm, intimate atmosphere she created for our marriage ceremony - that they had never before seen. She will get to know you and create a ceremony tailored completely to the two of you. She is open to all of your feedback and suggestions and also guides you in case there are elements with which you need help. She is the best - look no further for your ceremony officiant!

LisaAnn was wonderful! Not only did she deliver a heartfelt service that was unique to my husband and I, but she was also such a pleasure to work with. She was extremely responsive, organized and professional (which was great when working with SO many vendors for the big day!) So many of our guests commented on how much they loved the words and messages LisaAnn had in our ceremony. Highly recommend!

LisaAnn was truly an amazing person to officiate our wedding. No matter you background, tastes, creed or religion, she is ready to make your special day complete. It was her relaxed and warm personality that made us know we made the right choice. She not only made us feel at ease but she invited us into her home and welcomed us as friends. She was very keen on listening to how we wanted our wedding ceremony to go. Seeing as we've never done this before, it was great for her to brainstorm with us and walk us through the process and to guide us in what we wanted said and how we wanted the ceremony to go. She was open to everything! IT was so reassuring to know that our non traditional view would be presented in a classy and tasteful manner. I cannot recommend her enough and 5 stars needs to be 10!!

FABULOUS! LisaAnn is just The Best! For any couple, the Ceremony is truly the beginning. It's such a cherished moment that becomes part of a married couple's history together. My husband and I feel so blessed to have had this amazing opportunity to have LisaAnn as our Officiant. But, she is so much more than just an Officiant. She is loving, caring, thoughtful, warm, embracing... she really gets to know a couple for who they are, and she completely tailors the ceremony to match the personality and relationship of the couple. Whether it's humor, sentiment, or a particular uniqueness that you're looking to incorporate into the Ceremony, she will find a way to make it work beautifully.

While the Ceremony writing process can take time, all the effort is incredibly worth it. LisaAnn has a Questionnaire for the couple to fill out, and it really helps her to capture additional details that you may not have initially thought about. The Ceremony is such a deep and personal decision of how you want to begin your life as a married couple, and LisaAnn guides you through it all with heart and love. At any point if you're not sure about something, she'll openly, honestly, and kindly offer suggestions, including the Vow writing process (if you decide to write your own vows!).

Whatever you're personal life may entail, whether it's a unique family situation or something else that is perhaps less 'traditional', you can count on LisaAnn to make the Ceremony truly special and wonderfully memorable.

Hiring LisaAnn was the first (and one of the best) choices we made about our wedding. We got so lucky - we searched Google and immediately found our PERFECT officiant. After a short Skype call to confirm, on both ends, that we were a good match, we started planning. LisaAnn took all of our requests and added in her own ideas for consideration. She was amazingly helpful and made suggestions that really ended up shaping our ceremony into a unique experience. Afterwards, everyone commented that our ceremony was a real celebration of love and that it reminded them of the true purpose of a wedding.

In addition to the ceremony writing, we also highly recommend the "Marriage Visioning" session that she offers. What an amazing day! We felt so welcomed by LisaAnn in her home and were really able to clarify some ideas about what we wanted our marriage (not wedding!) to look like. She was the only person in the whole wedding-planning process who took the time to ask us about our marriage. The experience was invaluable.

We're so grateful to have made a friend for life!

When my husband and I first started talking about what we wanted our wedding to be like, we agreed that we wanted the ceremony to be the most important part and that it be unique to us. LisaAnn exceeded expectations in making that the reality for our wedding day. From the first time we Skyped with her, there was an instant connection and understanding of what we wanted for our ceremony, and through several Skype sessions, her questionnaire, and feedback on the ceremony drafts, our ceremony became exactly what we wanted it to be with her guidance and input. She really was able to take what were talking about and turn it into a beautiful, meaningful, one of a kind ceremony. On top of it all, LisaAnn was wonderful to work with; she was there for us in more ways than one, and was extremely accommodating and flexible about the fact that my husband and I were planning the wedding out of state. The day of the wedding once again she was there in more ways in one, not just officiating the ceremony with excellence but also making sure I had something to eat before the ceremony! We so enjoyed and appreciated the time we spent working with LisaAnn, all of the work and heart she put into our ceremony, and having her be an integral part of us joining our lives together in marriage.

LisaAnn is hands down the the best of the best! From our very first Skype call, she really took the time to get to know us. Over the course of our engagement, she welcomed us into her home, fed us lol, laughed with us, cared for us, supported us, and helped us to figure out what was really important to us. We built such an amazing relationship with LisaAnn. She is genuine through and through, and I believe that it is through such an authentic process that she is able to help her couples to create a truly unique ceremony.

Our ceremony was a true reflection of who my husband and I are in every way and it was evident in every last detail…it was just so 'US!' It was so special to us and I cannot tell you how many of our family and friends took the time to tell us that they thought our ceremony was beautiful and unlike any other ceremony that had ever seen.

My husband and I also completed the visioning workshop that LisaAnn offers. Throughout this amazing process, LisaAnn created a very unique space that helped us to define the foundation of our partnership and guided us in creating a vision for our marriage.

Our vision really became our ‘rock’ throughout our engagement-a place that we could come back to when we needed to get grounded and reminded of what it was really all about for us (you can sometimes forget what it’s all about when ‘life happens’ let alone when it happens while you are trying to plan a wedding! lol ;) Our vision then became the center of our ceremony…a way for us to really capture and express our commitment to one another and our intention for our marriage. Today, our vision is framed in our home and will serve as our rock. It will be a daily reminder of our commitment and intention, and it will be the foundation from which we will continue to build together for the rest of our lives.

LisaAnn, thank you for being who you are and for giving us the gift of a lifetime. you are forever stuck with us :) we love you! J&C
