Simply Amazing!   
Elizabeth Phaire was absolute perfection for our wedding. She worked with us to develop the ceremony and made several drafts before it was complete. Elizabeth took the time to know our story which showed in her excellent delivery of the service. All of my guests praised the ceremony. If I could give Elizabeth more than five stars, I would!!

Elizabeth was attentive to our needs from the day we first met with her until the ceremony. She was flexible when our plans changed a few days before the wedding. She calmed our nerves just by her peaceful presence and our guests have given us wonderful feedback on how nice our ceremony was. We owe this entirely to Elizabeth's experience and resourcefulness.

Elizabeth was an absolute pleasure to work with from day one. We were unable to meet her in person so she set up a Skype appointment so she was able to get to know us better. I really appreciated the questions she asked in her questionnaire & the amount of time she spent crafting our personalized ceremony. It was beautifully written & we literally received so many calls from our guests saying how included they felt when they learned our story as a couple & how fantastic the ceremony was. Usually brides cannot remember moments from their ceremony because everything happens so fast but since we had a hand in helping create it & wrote our own vows it is something i will never forget. I was a bit nervous beforehand & she was such a calming presence & her instruction during the ceremony made all the anxiety disappear. She is professional, kind, warm & thoughtful (a sentiment many reviewers agree to). It was truly a memorable experience that wouldn't have been possible without Elizabeth, thank you so much!

I wanted very much that my ceremony and vow exchange be the highlight of my wedding; not the food or the venue or the dancing. Having Elizabeth be our officiant truly made my wish come true! She is worth every penny and more! She was professional and gave attentive, personal service every step of the way! Every guest remarked on how intimate and personal our ceremony was and inquired about where we had found our officiant. She is a wonderful speaker and has a loving and calming presence at an emotional time. I can't imagine my day without her.

Our first experience with Liz was when she officiated a wedding ceremony for a friend of ours. It was hands down one of the best ceremonies that we had ever attended. When it came time to find someone for our special occasion, we immediately thought of Liz. After our meeting with her, we were immediately sold. She is easy to work with, has great suggestions and made the process EASY. She also has a calm yet warm demeanor that will put you at ease and believe me, you will need it on your wedding day. Most importantnly, the story that she weaved for us was beautiful, personal and unique. It struck the exact mood and energy we were looking for – meaningful and light at the same time. I feel like I’m singing to the choir but seriously, I can’t tell you the number of people that remarked on how much they loved the ceremony. So much of the time, ceremonies are treated as an afterthought, Liz makes it the star of the show!

Elizabeth was perfection. Not only did she completely respect our wishes for what kind of ceremony she wanted, she gave so many great ideas for special ceremony "extras" that might as a certain something special.
She was so professional, understanding, warm, and non judgmental about what we wanted in a ceremony. There was No pressure for anything and she made us feel very comfortable.
As for during the wedding day and ceremony, I like that she made us and our guests laugh and our guests had only great things to say including her presence being aetherial. That is lovely!!
My FIL passed less than a year before the wedding and she made the great suggestion of leaving an empty chair and placing a flower or something on the seat during the ceremony. It was so special and the family loved it.
Elizabeth does do rehearsal dinners for a fee, a bit high, but worth it, as she informed us of what to expect for the day.

Elizabeth was an amazing officiant for our wedding. Her approach to writing our wedding ceremony was personalized and more touching than either my wife or I could have hoped for. At the end of the ceremony, we received compliment after compliment about what an amazing job she did.

Our wedding ceremony was just last night with Elizabeth. When we first started looking for an officiant, we were worried that we would not find one who was open minded about performing our ceremony in an unconventional manner. After searching through officiants in the NY area, we came across Elizabeth. Her previous reviews sounded great and her profile seemed like she would be a good match for us.

We could not be more pleased with our experience with Elizabeth. She is very professional and was attentive to our desires on what we wanted included in our ceremony, made her own suggestions, and guided us through the process step by step. We highly recommend Elizabeth and would definitely work with her again!! Thank you for making our special night so beautiful!!

Elizabeth is one of the most compassionate individuals I've ever met in my life. My husband and i were beyond pleased with her attentiveness leading up to the event. She took the time to meet with us and learn about the inner workings of our relationship. I was a bit nervous about our ceremony because I was raised Catholic and my fiance Jewish and was worried that the ceremony wouldn't be rooted in the values and traditions of our individual faiths, but Elizabeth was able to craft a ceremony that incorporated elements of both our religions without being overtly religious. She also spoke with us before the ceremony and provided us with support leading up to the big moment. Our families were beyond pleased with the ceremony. I feel blessed to have worked with someone as thoughtful as Elizabeth and highly recommend her to all!

We had an ABSOLUTELY beautiful wedding day and the highlight was the ceremony officiated by Elizabeth! It could not have been any more perfect. Elizabeth helped us symbolize our dedication to each other by providing options for meaningful rituals like the candle lighting and ring warming ceremonies, both of which we used. From our first meeting with her a whole year before our wedding day, Elizabeth provided gentle guidance and unyielding support to us. My husband says she was like a "floating angel." It's amazing that you can meet someone and instantly feel like they've been a part of your life for many years. That was the feeling we got from our interactions with Elizabeth. She blended notes from our meetings, emails and phone conversations and used them to craft a personal, unique ceremony that told the story of our love in a very special way. She even included a brief translation for the benefit of my husband's parents who do not speak English. We would choose Elizabeth over and over again for our vow renewals at the 10, 20, and 50 year marks because that's how long we plan to be in love! We extend our highest recommendation of Elizabeth as a wedding officiant for a truly memorable occasion!
