In early September, we were looking for a celebrant for a same sex non-denominational wedding ceremony; we were referred to Elizabeth. We contacted her by email and she confirmed that she was available for the date requested (New Year’s Eve) and could do the ceremony in our home. She referred us to her website and we liked what we saw. We contacted her again, discussed some more details and decided to meet with her.
The consultation was friendly and at the end we were confident she would be able to do what we wanted in a professional and friendly way. We signed a contract and paid a 50% deposit. Elizabeth agreed to send some sample vows and text for the ring ceremony.
A couple of weeks before the date, we choose the text for the vows and ring ceremony and sent her the choices via email. A few days later, she returned the text incorporated into a wedding script which was personal and reflected our wishes. We made some minor changes and sent them back. We also told her that we wanted a clergy member and friend to give a blessing. She said that she would incorporate that into the ceremony.
On New Year’s Eve Elizabeth arrived and we discussed some final details. The whole ceremony was all we had wanted and expected--so personal and meaningful. All our guests said it was beautiful and professional.
In the first meeting Elizabeth asked what we were looking for, we answered “We want what they do at City Hall”. What we got was 1000 times better! And we were glad she brought the whole ceremony to a much higher level.
We highly recommend Elizabeth to conduct your wedding ceremony. She is a lovely woman and really helped to make our day special.

Elizabeth helped my husband and I have the ceremony of our dreams! We did not want to have a religious ceremony, but wanted the ceremony to be spiritual, meaningful and personal. Elizabeth exceeded all of our expectations with the truly personalized and one of a kind ceremony that she created. Everything felt so personal and genuine, and she beautifully told our love story. We received so many compliments from guests saying that the ceremony was the most touching and meaningful that they've ever heard. Some people even asked us if Elizabeth was a close friend since the ceremony was so personalized! On a personal note, Elizabeth is lovely, calming and easy to work with. I would recommend her to anyone who wants a customized, unique wedding ceremony...you will not be disappointed!

Elizabeth was a pleasure to work with. The moment my now husband and I met her we knew we had to have her be the one to marry us. The ceremony she put together for us was perfection! Everyone came up to us and told us how amazing she was! Elizabeth always answered emails and returned phone calls immediately. She also helped us write our vows, and didn't mind any last minute changes. She made our wedding ceremony so meaningful! We hope to have her in our lives for any other ceremonies we may have in the future!

Out of all of the events surrounding my recent wedding, the ceremony is by far my most memorable. Elizabeth made it so personable and touching and it is something my husband and I will remember for the rest of our lives. She worked with us through different drafts, offered ideas, suggestions and tailored our ceremony to exactly what we wanted. She helped us combine two cultures and told the story that we wanted to be told. She brought our ceremony to life. If there is one piece of advice I can offer to anyone planning a wedding, book Elizabeth and you will be so glad you did. We cannot begin to thank her enough.

Elizabeth was such a joy to work with for our May 6th wedding. At our first meeting Elizabeth showed us many different options and ideas for our ceremony, which was great because neither one of us are very religious, but knowing there were other options was a breath of fresh air. After the initial meeting, we were sent a questionnaire separately to fill in, which was a lot of fun because you didn't know how the other responded. From there Elizabeth built this beautiful ceremony that told about the journey of us becoming husband and wife. All our guests kept telling us how fantastic the ceremony was, and that they felt like they knew us so much more and gain a better understanding of our love for each other, family and friends. This is all thanks to Elizabeth. I highly recommend her, not just for her professionalism & expertise, but because she’s one of the nicest people you will ever meet.

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.
