INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Agnostic, Buddhist, Christian (no denomination), Hindu, Islam, Jewish, Shinto, Taoist
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
Yes
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes, and most of my ceremonies take place at banquet halls, mansions, restaurants, hotels, Central Park and other parks, gardens, private homes, and chapels that are rented for the occasion.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
I wear an elegant suit, dress, or a white ministerial robe, depending on the couple's wishes.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Yes, my services are highly personalized. Flexibility and creativity are key in how I work with my clients. The wording of my ceremonies is customized to suit the couples preferences in meaning and overall tone. I create the script based on the information and preferences that I have gathered from the couple. They get to read the script and can make or request any changes that they desire. They have final say over the ceremony wording and content.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes, and I am happy to provide a guide on how to write vows, and samples of vows to use as inspiration.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
If the couple would like to include a reading, I have a wide selection that they can choose from. They can also use a reading from their own resources or internet research.
How long are your ceremonies?
They range from the "petit ceremony" which is 5 minutes long, to 1/2 hour which is the average length. Longer ceremonies are available on request.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No, I do not require pre-marital counseling. However for those couples who desire pre-marital counseling, I offer a referral to an excellent facilitator.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes, I am happy to perform a rehearsal if needed.
Do you supply a sound system?
No.

Elizabeth helped bring magic and something transformative and electrifying to the atmosphere I felt yesterday for our wedding. She works so hard work and is so thorough in preparation, as well as compassionate, and commanding in her presentation of our ceremony. She is so special. She has an incredible gift and is one of the most creative, artistic and perceptive people I know.

Elizabeth made our wedding ceremony flawlessly perfect and special. From the beginning of our meeting to the ceremony, she was very thorough in her preparation and in execution of officiating the wedding. Elizabeth advised on the order of the ceremony, types of rituals we could include in our ceremony (which took place at Conservatory Garden in Central Park - we chose a coin tossing ritual), readings, vow exchange and ring ceremony. I think the highlight of the ceremony was her writing on the couple's story. She took many notes during our first meeting and showed the draft. After several drafts back and forth, VOILA! Her reading of our story of the couple and other opening/closing words was a combination of beauty, humor and truthfulness. She reads clearly and has a very professional and pleasant manner. I highly recommend Elizabeth Phaire to anyone who isn't into overt religious tone of ceremony. She will make the occasion beautiful and smooth.

I found Elizabeth through the Internet. Being a bit of a last minute bride, I contacted Elizabeth with only about a month to spare before our wedding date. When we first met Elizabeth we were quite undecided as to how we might create our ceremony. We were extremely impressed that, without any judgments or biases, Elizabeth presented us with many options to choose from - from different readings, to vows, to various symbolic rituals we might perform during the ceremony. She collected our story and we tweaked a couple rough drafts back and forth, via email, and in a very efficient and professional manner we had the perfect ceremony in a very short time. It had just the right amount of light hearted moments and deep meaningful ones. As my mother said, after the ceremony, "wow, you found the right officiant. That was a beautiful ceremony." I highly recommend Elizabeth. She truly cared about creating the perfect ceremony for us, and she succeeded beyond my wildest dreams. It was perfect.

We had a great experience with Elizabeth Phaire as our Wedding Officiant. She was very professional, composed, and attentive. Initially we had a few unique requests due to private circumstances, and she was willing to work with us, which was much appreciated. She listened to our concerns and needs and tried to accommodate them. She even helped us with our vows, which we had no time to prepare ourselves. She wrote a beautiful summary of our life story, and kept our guests entertained with a combination of telling our story in a personalized way as well as adding some humor to it. Our guests also commented on how nice the Ceremony was and how much they liked our Officiant. I highly recommend Elizabeth Phaire to anyone.

While planning our wedding my wife and I always believed the ceremony to be the most important part. That said, finding the right officiant was going to be as crucial (well, almost) as finding the right gown. As a same sex couple with some extended family who I'm sure still had questions needing to be answered in attendance, the officiant would have their plateful. Thankfully, we found Elizabeth. Meeting Elizabeth made us even more excited about our wedding it made it real! Elizabeth had this warm vibe of genuinely nice person upon our first meeting, it was easy to trust her. We allowed her full access into our personal lives knowing that she would take great care of Jess and I's story. And that she did. Elizabeth crafted such a beautiful ceremony that had our guests crying and laughing at the same time. The ceremony was indeed a reflection our personalities. There is something to be said when friends comment on your wedding ceremony first before they tell you how amazing the food was at the your wedding. My father-in-law still keeps saying it that it was the best ceremony he has ever attended. Thank you, Elizabeth!

She is knowledgable and caring. She presents in such a warm and genuine way. Everyone commented on how beautiful the ceremony was - and we owe this to her.

I could not recommend her more.

Elizabeth did an absolutely perfect job as our officiant. She spent hours in research and preparation. At the same time, she was very respectful of our schedule and gathered input from us in a very efficient manner. She then put all that preparation to work in writing a deeply moving and completely individualized ceremony, which she performed impeccably. All those in attendance said it was the most beautiful wedding ceremony they'd ever witnessed. Thank you so very much, Elizabeth!

Elizabeth was truly awesome as our wedding officiant! We were looking for a unique and personal ceremony that was tailored to our own unique story - and Elizabeth delivered exactly that. All of our guests were so impressed with our ceremony - there was not a dry eye in the house! Elizabeth is a kind, calming presence in the craziness that is a big wedding. She helped us remember to take a deep breath and be in the moment. Elizabeth was also very responsive to all e-mails, and from the moment we started working with her she communicated clearly and efficiently, which was incredibly important to me as a busy bride who was working full time up to the wedding. Thank you Elizabeth for making our wedding ceremony the most wonderful, memorable experience we could have hoped for!!

Elizabeth worked with us to create a one-of-a-kind ceremony that focused on our story and the people we love. We were two brides who dreamed of a meaningful, but at times lighthearted ceremony that really focused on our love. Elizabeth helped us to make this dream a reality.
Elizabeth also kept us calm, and maintained a consistent pace, never rushing through, allowing the right amount of time for each element of the ceremony to achieve significance.
We are so thankful that Elizabeth was our celebrant, she had a huge role in making our wedding absolutely perfect.

Elizabeth was wonderful to work with. After meeting with us, she sent us some questions about us and our history as a couple. From there, she crafted the rough draft of a beautiful ceremony that my fiancee and I were able to to review, edit, and suggest additions and subtractions to. Elizabeth took and improved upon our suggestions to create an utterly perfect ceremony that was exactly what we wanted.

Captivating To Say the Least
Elizabeth hands down is the Officiant to have for your wedding ceremony. She has such a calming sense about her. She brought our love story to life in the ceremony through words, quotes, and analogies that were so spot on that you would think she was a fly on the wall throughout our relationship leading up to our wedding ceremony. She worked so hard and compiled so much from listening to us. We received so many compliments from our guest about how “heartfelt, unique, and one of a kind” the ceremony was. We are so grateful for having Elizabeth be our Officiant we couldn’t ask for anyone better. Thank you Elizabeth! Derrick & Renée Schmidt ~8/16/13 ~

Elizabeth is wonderful! We highly recommend her! We met Elizabeth for @ one hour and then shard e-mail correspondences prior to our wedding . She took the time to get to know both of us by having each of us fill out a questionnaire about ourselves. From that information, Elizabeth wrote a very personal ceremony that truly reflected our relationship. My family and friends were amazed at how lovely and personal the wedding ceremony was.
Ron and I felt like we were truly participants in our ceremony and Elizabeth helped us define what we wanted. She is extremebly professional, intuitive, and caring. Her calmness during our ceremony helped me to calm down as well.
We highly recommend Elizabeth for your wedding--you will be very happy, I promise!

Elizabeth has helped my husband and I since the moment we first contacted her. She has shared with us her knowledge and experience, which ultimately helped make our wedding day go as wonderfully and smoothly as it went. We were completely satisfied (to say the least) from Elizabeth's Services, and ceremony. We held our ceremony at Central Park, and Elizabeth helped us not to have our spirits damper when it started raining for short while (by letting us know that rain on the wedding day is actually a sign of good luck!) . We would also like to say that having the wedding between a same-sex gay men couple was not taking away from Elizabeth's performance, but in fact it felt she made it comfortable and elevating. We will be forever thankful to Elizabeth, and couldn't give any warmer recommendation about her officiating a wedding! MAZAL TOV!

After meeting with Elizabeth for the first time, I immediately got an incredibly good vibe… she just has this amazing energy about her! Elizabeth is warm, genuine, thoughtful, patient and incredibly thorough. She is everything that you could ever want in a wedding officiant and more! She made every step of our wedding ceremony planning as easy as it could possibly be, from providing us with various reading and vow selections to offering her expertise and insight on various questions and concerns we had. The end result was a ceremony that was personal, meaningful, intimate and quite simply… perfect :) All of our guests raved about how much they loved our ceremony (there were lots of tears and sniffles throughout the crowd) and how well Elizabeth truly captured our story. Some people even remarked that it seemed as if Elizabeth was a friend of ours, someone who really knew US. Even when there were certain technical difficulties with our song selections being played correctly during the ceremony, Elizabeth was a source of comfort for me… she remained cool, calm and collected and kept things under control. I highly, highly recommend Elizabeth to any couple looking for a wedding ceremony that is truly special, unique and memorable. Working with Elizabeth was an absolute pleasure!!!

It’s difficult to put into words how wonderful Elizabeth is, and how memorable a ceremony she put together for us.

Just some of the countless positive comments from those who attended were, “She was so terrific–where did you find her?”, “She knows you guys so well, you must have been friends for a while”, and “Such a beautiful ceremony–she was perfect.”

The truth is, we found Elizabeth slightly more than one week before our ceremony(!), and over the course of one, hour-long meeting, and a few follow up email correspondences, she put together the most wonderful ceremony–just how we envisioned it, perfectly suited to our personalities and sensibilities. It was a narrative, really; Elizabeth seamlessly and organically weaving all of the elements of the occasion–the story of us, the history of the venue, the few traditional elements we wanted included. She displayed a wonderful, warm, commanding presence, very at ease and confident in her leadership of the ceremony.

She was incredibly easy to work with–so professional, so attentive, so affable. Leading up to the ceremony was an interactive collaboration–every question she asked and every email she sent had the end goal of making the ceremony as perfectly tailored to us as we could have ever hoped. She sent us drafts of the ‘script’ as we went, and reworked it beautifully around any edits we had. The end result was a ceremony masterfully cut to fit US.

It is with great enthusiasm that I write this testimonial–we were so happy and impressed with the job she did. She truly helped make every part of our wedding so much more special.
It’s difficult to put into words how wonderful Elizabeth is, and how memorable a ceremony she put together for us.

It’s difficult to put into words how wonderful Elizabeth is, and how memorable a ceremony she put together for us.

Just some of the countless positive comments from those who attended were, “She was so terrific–where did you find her?”, “She knows you guys so well, you must have been friends for a while”, and “Such a beautiful ceremony–she was perfect.”

The truth is, we found Elizabeth slightly more than one week before our ceremony(!), and over the course of one, hour-long meeting, and a few follow up email correspondences, she put together the most wonderful ceremony–just how we envisioned it, perfectly suited to our personalities and sensibilities. It was a narrative, really; Elizabeth seamlessly and organically weaving all of the elements of the occasion–the story of us, the history of the venue, the few traditional elements we wanted included. She displayed a wonderful, warm, commanding presence, very at ease and confident in her leadership of the ceremony.

When my DH and I met Elizabeth last year we knew we picked the right person! She was great in providing us the readings, vows and etc.. The most important part of our ceremony was my husband and I story. After she told my guest our beautiful love story not a dry eye in sight! I'm so glad that my husband and I picked Elizabeth. To this day my guest still rave on how great Elizabeth told such a beautiful story. Thanks Elizabeth!!!!

Elizabeth performed a lovely ceremony yesterday! All of our guests were commenting about how wonderful she was. They thought the ceremony was personal and beautiful. The sand ceremony was a perfect way to bring our son David into the special moment with us. And now we have a special keepsake that we will treasure always. We also appreciate how patient she was with David's interruptions (he is two). I know that it can be distracting but she handled it so well.

Its hard to express how much we appreciate her help in planning the perfect wedding ceremony. We were not sure what we wanted and she created for us exactly what we wanted. Thanks to your help, yesterday was a very special day for me and Billy that we will always remember.

Elizabeth,
We have to extend the deepest gratitude to you for helping to make our day very special. We wanted to have an intimate ceremony in our home. The most important and memorable part of the day for us were the words we shared with one another. Your writing was beautiful and you truly incorporated the personalized elements we shared with you. It made the ceremony that much more touching and heartfelt for us. We could not be happier about choosing to have you lead our ceremony. We felt like your heart was full of warmth and joy on our special day.
Thanks very much,

Within 30 seconds of talking to Elizabeth, my husband and I knew she was the officiant for us - she immediately put us at ease and we were confident that she understood exactly what was important to us as a couple. We didn't want an "off the shelf" wedding ceremony and we certainly didn't get one - we worked with Elizabeth to ensure every aspect of the ceremony was crafted to us as a couple. She was great in helping provide suggestions for readings, quotes, blessings etc - sometimes it's difficult to know where to start but Elizabeth put in the hard work to ensure it was as simple as possible for us. We wrote our own vows and chose our own readings in what was a wonderfully personal ceremony. As we were travelling from overseas for the wedding, Elizabeth went out of her way to make sure we knew what we needed to do to sort the extra official paperwork - with so many other things to think about, having an officiant who gave us this added support was a real bonus, and a weight off our minds. All our guests absolutely loved the ceremony and several commented on how Elizabeth's approach fitted our style as a couple down to a tee. The beautifully presented print-out of our ceremony she made for us was a thoughtful extra touch that confirmed, if confirmation was needed, that we made the perfect choice when we decided to work with Elizabeth as our wedding officiant. We can't recommend her highly enough.

Elizabeth Phaire.. AMAZING!!!

From the moment we went on her website we knew Elizabeth was the one. Once speaking with her we immediately felt at ease. She is very professional, organized and guides you through out the entire process. So now we’re on the big Wedding day and its natural to have a little bit of worry, Right? Not with Elizabeth that all dissipates. Not only was she the first to arrive at the ceremony site, but also she has an incredible Aura that evokes such a calm, peaceful and pleasant demeanor. I swear an Angel sent her! Look no further because Elizabeth Phaire is the one. Your wedding will be personalized with brilliance and your story captured in such a unique way. It’s just truly amazing. Not only were we pleased but everyone who attended expressed how truly touched they were and how this was the most special wedding ceremony they have ever been to. We can’t thank her enough for the memories we will have with us for a lifetime!

For our wedding, it was very important to my husband and I that we had a heartfelt, personalized and eloquent ceremony. Elizabeth delivered that and more. She incorporated elements of Jewish tradition for my husband's side and Christian tradition for my side, as well as a meaningful unity ceremony. She is incredibly knowlegeable and guided us in all of our choices, including readings, vows and even processional/recessional music. Also, she is very responsive to any questions or suggestions, and truly dedicated to creating the ceremony you envision. Elizabeth has a very calming and assured presence, which is so valuable on your wedding day. Our guests loved hearing the story of our relationship and raved about the entire ceremony. We were so fortunate to have Elizabeth marry us. She is truly excellent at what she does!

My wife and I got married about an hour and half away from home and decided it made more sense to get an officiant from our wedding location than back home. We looked around on the internet, not really liking what we saw, until we came upon Elizabeth's website. We set up a time to talk with her over Skype and were immediately impressed. We booked Elizabeth shortly after and couldn't have been happier. Her pleasant demeanor, prompt responses and professionalism are second to none. Yes, you can find cheaper options, but she is worth every penny. My wife and I received so many compliments about Elizabeth's ceremony. It was just so personal. In fact, many asked us how we knew her. Little did they know, we just met her in person for the first time that very day. We couldn't recommend Elizabeth more. She, like the day, was perfection.

Upon meeting Elizabeth for the first time, my husband and I were convinced that Elizabeth was the officiant to carry out our ceremony. It was her love and respect of ceremony and various traditions that drew us in. During the weeks leading up to the big day it was obvious that Elizabeth was working very hard to create a ceremony that was tailored to us. It meant so much to have our personal story shared with our loved ones on such a special day. I really feel like it was the first time that my husband and I were truly introduced to our community as a couple. It was beautiful.We received loads of wonderful feedback about Elizabeth from our guest. Many of them were in tears and believed "it was the best wedding ceremony" they had ever witnessed. We are beyond thrilled that we made the right choice for such a monumental day.

Elizabeth was not only our officiant but her role was valuable in so many ways. She didn't just write and officiate our ceremony but she even helped us in terms of giving us info on how to make it legal as we are a same-sex couple. On the day same-sex marriage became legal here in NYC Elizabeth sent us a wonderful email and we could feel how happy she was not only for us, but for all those who could now be legally married here. Elizabeth was very attentive and always made herself available to us throughout this whole process.



In the end she made everything feel just right and helped us to truly personalize our ceremony. Guest also asked about her and complimented the way in which she officiated our ceremony.

I never imagined that the voice of love could feel so true. But on our wedding day an angel stood before us. She made me feel how much I truly loved this beautiful woman that stood before me, ready to marry me and give her love and life until the end of our days. Elizabeth (our angel) read words from a place that only the heart could feel. She read our vows with careful deliverance, taking time and breath between every word said. In all my life I have never shed a tear. But on this day I could not stop the love flowing from my eyes in the form of tears. Slowly and carefully she read our feelings in the form of vows, making sure that we felt every bit of love and devotion from every word she said. I could not stop from thinking, was this woman sent to us from the heavens to marry us. I can not express the words in earthly terms, but it has carried myself and my wife into our next journey in life in a way that will never be forgotten. Elizabeth's patience and careful deliberation of words, I can only feel and not describe, made for an unforgettable union of love and life. In all aspects of our ceremony I know now that my life has been blessed with love’s gentle fingertips, enabling me to fill unlimited canvases, pouring affection onto the timeless white fabric that has been weaved exclusively for me. I can open doors the universe has kept closed to me and see beyond the realm of what once was the limit of my understanding. Elizabeth's words led us through the halls of hope and libraries of possibilities to encounter the most enchanting feeling we have ever experienced, let alone be part of. We thank her for what she has done for us and wish everyone who gets married can have even but a glimpse of what she made us feel.

Our best to you Elizabeth,

Mark and Teri Moore

We had our wedding on Oct 10,2010 and felt so lucky to have Elizabeth to be our officient at our wedding.
First, Elizabeth is very cooperative and always quickly response to our questions and requests. She had been working very hard to answer our requests or accommodate our needs.
Second, she is very patient and always trying to put her thoughts and efforts in to make the event more successful. After we shared our needs and information with her, I continue receiving the revised responses about how to line out the procedure and speech words to achieve the best results.
Third, she is very professional about what she is doing. She gave all the options out there for us to choose and made us feel so comfortable to have the wedding sweetly and nicely performed to our guests.
Elizabeth's presence is one of our best memories and I am sure all the new couples that Elizabeth worked for will be enjoy their weddings with her.

She is attentive & caring, because on the day of my wedding, my printer had crashed & she helped me to get copies through one of her printer contacts. I highly recommend her! Her attire was spotless & her appearance well groomed. She encompasses all that is needed to get the job done well!!

Working with Elizabeth to plan our wedding ceremony was a warm and personalized experience. She took the time to get to know us and was able to create a very personal service. As an interfaith couple we wanted to incorporate aspects of our cultural heritages into the ceremony. Her research proved invaluable as she added to the ideas we had and included some beautiful readings.

The ceremony was exactly as we planned it and most importantly as we wanted it to be. Her professionalism, presence and calm manner made everyone feel welcome, comfortable and part of something special. My husband especially appreciated her support as his emotions overtook him as I walked down the aisle.

A number of our guests commented on what a lovely ceremony it was and how special Elizabeth made it. In these times when just about anyone can get a license to marry two people we feel very fortunate to have found Elizabeth.

Our Dream come true
One of the happiest and most memorable moments in my life was marrying my husband in a Rose Garden. Because of Elizabeth and her wonderful spirit and love she made that moment more magical and wonderful then i could even imagine! It was personal, and she set the mood just as we asked. She met with us previously on site and asked us personal questions in order to create a very personal and emotional ceremony. I was able to run my thoughts and vow selections over with her and she even provided suggestions of what would fit where. The guests were blown away by the ceremony and there was not a dry eye in the house. She is genuine and cares for her work and it shows!!! Elizabeth made our garden fantasy wedding come true and we will always cherish that time!

The guests were blown away by the ceremony and there was not a dry eye in the house. She is genuine and cares for her work and it shows!!! Elizabeth made our garden fantasy wedding come true and we will always cherish that time! Read less

Elizabeth was one of the few vendors for our wedding we had absolutely no complaints about. She was very flexible and her calm and reassuring demeanor really helped us stay at peace among all the craziness. She was extremely flexible and friendly and still keeps in touch with us today!

Her ideas for our wedding really helped make our ceremony so special and unique. I can't tell you how many people commented on how they have never seen a ceremony like ours before and wanted to steal our ideas. Many guests commented on Elizabeth specifically and said how she did such a wonderful job and was so clear, confident and precise. Even some of our more religious family members who were not pleased that we were not getting married in church, gave glowing reviews about the ceremony afterwards.

Guests who didn't know one of us as well or our history together really came away with an understanding on how we fell in love and what we meant to each other. Elizabeth presented our story in a touching and real way that was just right � not too formal, not too casual. Her system of having the couple fill out a questionnaire separately was spot-on and really worked to make that part of the ceremony shine.

The other HUGE plus was how organized and on-point Elizabeth is! As someone very organized myself, it was something we *really* appreciated. When we signed the contract, she immediately gave us timelines of what should be done at what time and it really kept us on track. If something was going to be delayed, she would tell us beforehand versus us having to contact her. She was consistently easy to get in touch with, very flexible and always willing to make any changes we had without any attitude. Not having to go through a bunch of meetings, explaining things over and over and being easy to contact, made working on the ceremony one of the easiest and most enjoyable parts of the wedding planning process!

We had an incredible ceremony and Elizabeth�s spirit helped make it so. We would highly recommend her to anyone!

Elizabeth was our Wedding Officiant in May of 2008. She took the words of my husband and I and turned them into the most beautiful ceremony I have EVER heard. Truly amazing! From the start of the process to the actual ceremony Elizabeth has been such a blessing to work with. Her thoughtfulness goes beyond words! After our Wedding Elizabeth also did a Baby Blessing for our oldest daughter then just recently for our youngest daughter. Just when I thought she couldn't possibly be any better she has continued to WOW us with her gift for beautiful words, thoughts, and prayers. Elizabeth is such an amazing person and a true joy to be around. I have and will continue to recommend her to every single person I know who is in need of any of the services she provides. I feel like she is a part of our family! Thank You Elizabeth for EVERYTHING!!!!!! <3 -The Rozycki Family <3

Elizabeth did an amazing job with our ceremony. We had a lot of guests attending that were friends of our parents that we had never met before and even they were in tears! The ceremony we planned with Elizabeth was very personal and everyone that attended the wedding left with a better understanding of us as a couple. We couldn't ask for anything more.
