INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Non-religious Ceremony
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
Yes
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes, because my ceremonies are non-denominational and non-religious. We can certainly include a prayer or religious reading if you'd like that, but the overall tone of my ceremonies is humanist (capturing the human spirit of love and commitment) and does not speak to any particular religion.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
Formal, or other by request.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Yes. I work to make this ceremony something that feels right for you.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Absolutely. I can even share examples to get you started.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
No, but I have readings of all sorts that you're welcome to choose from if you'd like.
How long are your ceremonies?
Typically, they're 20 minutes or so. But I can go shorter or longer if you'd prefer.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No. I trust that you're both making a mature decision that's mutually beneficial.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes. Though I do request an extra $75 for my time.
Do you supply a sound system?
My voice carries well, but should the venue require it, your DJ or venue contact can help me out with extra sound assistance.

Liz made our special day - - special! She was friendly and honest and open, from the first day we met and interviewed each other to the end of our ceremony and beyond. We had a small intimate ceremony with family and close friends in our suite at the Sanctuary Resort. Although she had a wedding ceremony already scheduled for later that day she was very accommodating to us for our romantic midday celebration.

Liz is a true professional - thoughtful, caring, personable, and easy going. A real pleasure to work with! She delivered our ceremony, including our personal vows, with compassion and sincerity. Her words were heartfelt, captivating, and beautiful. Many guests commented on how distinctive and enchanting her ceremony was. She stayed for a little while afterwards and mingled to enjoy our celebration together.

Liz is a very charming, likeable, and pleasant person. I would recommend her to officiate for anybody's wedding! She is...JOYFUL indeed!

Thank you Rich and Nhu for your generous words. I loved working with you and experiencing your authentic affection for one another.

To say that Liz was amazing, would be an understatement. It was like having our best friend perform the ceremony. She took the time, to hear our story and how it all led to our special day. Hearing her say it to us and our guests was, made us feel as though she was there watching all these past years. Liz made it a point from the beginning to really listen to us and understand us. The ceremony she wrote out for us, FOR US, was personal and so touching. Not a dry eye... Everyone, always thinks that you will be complimented on the flowers or the cake or the brides wedding dress.... NO, not in our case, everyone gave us compliments on Liz; on how loving yet humorous she made our special day. This rating system, does no justice for Liz! She is off the charts.. There is nothing to consider, she is the best. Liz, if you ever get a chance to read this... Thank you, thank you, thank you. You made our day special and unforgettable. Your words and presence are carved in our hearts! ..... Sam & Gaby

My husband and I were so lucky to come across Joyful Unions when researching officiants. We met Liz in person a few months before the wedding and we absolutely adored her! She is so personable, kind, funny, and very perceptive. We spoke for a good while giving her insight of who we are, how we met and what we love. She asked great questions to get to know us before the ceremony. During the wedding planning, she was quick to respond and always helpful. On the day of our wedding, she did an amazing job! We had a small ceremony at the Desert Botanical Garden among family and close friends. She brought our personalities beautifully into our vows and her words about what marriage is. Our guests kept raving throughout the night, and honestly even to this day, about how touching and lovely Liz made the ceremony. My husband would give her more than 5 stars if we could. I cannot express quite how much we enjoyed working with Joyful Unions.

Liz is such a wonderful person to officiate a wedding. I knew the moment I met Liz that she would do a great job. She was very easy to keep in contact with and would check in with us from time to time just to see how we were doing. After our wedding my husband and I had multiple people tell us how great our ceremony was specifically the vows that Liz was so kind to write for us. Thank you Liz!

Liz was personable from the first day we met her. It felt like we were meeting an old friend for coffee. She listened to what we did and didn't want, and helped us incorporate family into our ceremony.

Liz made things very personal for us. She included the story of how we met and things that we said into the ceremony.

Our family told us they enjoyed the ceremony, some of them wanted a copy of what Liz said, and they all agreed that Liz added to the beauty of the photos taken during the event.

We highly recommend Liz, and we thank her for all she did to make our wedding memorable.

Liz was perfect! We spoke on the phone, then met in person. We got the feeling that she really wanted to get to know us and our story. She was flexible and was open to anything we wanted to do. After our initial meeting, we communicated by e-mail. She was professional, prompt, warm, honest, and sincere.

She incorporated some of favorite music lyrics, told the story of how we met, the story of the proposal, our live before marriage, helped us make vows with our daughters, vows to each other as husband and wife and gave a beautiful message about our how marriage will change our lives!

We got a lot of compliments for a lot of our guests and a lot said they teared up hearing her speak about us! She was perfect - I'm so glad we chose her and she chose us!! Thanks Liz!! :I can't wait for our wedding ceremony script!! :)

Liz,

I knew that when you accepted our request to officiate our ceremony that it would be great and a lot of pressure was taken off our shoulders. What I didn't realize was the magnitude of this greatness. You have the wonderful ability to take the information you received from us and turn it into a beautiful ceremony that neither Vicki or I will ever forget. You took our words and "captured who we are". I have never heard a more dynamic and heartfelt ceremony. Many of our family and friends commented on the actual words you spoke. It was mentioned that the words in our ceremony were meaningful, enlightening, and thought provoking. We can only say "thank you" for being part of our day and making it terrific!!!

The day before our wedding our minister was admitted to the hospital and couldn't perform the ceremony. We found Liz online, called her in a panic, and she immediately answered the phone and put us at ease. By that evening we had chosen vows, gotten her the other ceremony information she needed and had everything all set to go. The next day she arrived early so we could review and do a short run through. Everyone commented on how amazing she was and no one suspected she was a last-minute substitution. To everyone there, it seemed as if she'd known us for a long time and not that we'd just met! I firmly believe that she did a much better job than our original officiant would have done and am thankful that this odd circumstance brought us all together. Thanks, Liz!!!

I am so glad you called, Emily. Your wedding was so warm and relaxed; it was a pleasure to be part of it. And I'm also happy to hear that we successfully "fooled" everyone as to how long we'd known each other! Wishing you and Michael a long and happy marriage!

Hands down, Liz was THE best wedding vendor my husband and I worked with. Not only was she responsive and professional, she really listened to our needs and spent time crafting a touching, heartfelt, and joyous ceremony that we could not have been more happy with. Every single person who attended our wedding commented on how brilliant Liz's ceremony was. My family are still raving about the beautiful and personal words that she shared that day. Most people who attended the wedding thought that she was a family friend because of the warmth and personal touches that Liz included in her words.

I am so happy to have met and worked with Liz. She is a wonderfully kind individual who will give you the ceremony of your dreams. She surely did that for my husband and I. I cannot thank her enough.

The feelings are mutual. I very much enjoyed meeting and working with the two of you. My husband and I were about your age when we married all those years ago; being part of your Big Day was quite sentimental for me. And your dress! It was fairytale perfect.

Liz made our wedding absolutely perfect! She met with us a couple of times prior to the wedding and asked us both questions on how we met, how he proposed etc. She used the questions to introduce my husband and I to all of the guests at he wedding by giving them a quick story about us prior to the vows. She was so professions in every aspect and gave us a perfect ceramony. After all of the wedding fun was over the 1 thing all of our guest were complimenting us on was how amazing our Officiant did. I would recommend Liz to anybody who is looking to have a perfect wedding!!!!

Liz is personable, professional, and is a wonderful officiant. She took time to get to know my husband and I, took notes on how we met and incorporated this into our ceremony. Liz was always responsive to our questions, created a wonderful ceremony of laughter, tears and love. Many of our guests commented to us on what an amazing job Liz did. I would highly recommend Liz!

Liz O'Brien was an absolute JOY to work with as our marriage officiant. She was extremely personable and took the time to get to know not only what we were expecting out of our ceremony and vows, but she really very pleasantly surprised me with how much she got to know us as a couple and how she tailored our ceremony so I just felt like it was "us." We didn't really give Liz enough time to even schedule an in-person meeting with us, but after the first phone conversation I really felt like she was the "one" and felt confident moving forward with working with her in the very short time frame (about a month before our ceremony). I really felt like Liz gave me the flexibility to write our own vows, but then provided excellent support in organizing the entire ceremony and not putting any pressure at all on me and my husband. It was a great balance - she knows her stuff! I would recommend Liz to anyone looking for an amazingly supportive officiant who LOVES what she does. I was so pleased to share our special day with Liz.

We used Joyful Unions to officiate our ceremony and it was the best wedding decision we made!! Liz is absolutely wonderful to work with. From day one of meeting her, we knew she would be perfect to officiate our wedding. She took great detail in capturing our love story and incorporating it into our ceremony - our families and friends were teary-eyed after hearing her heartfelt words. She guided us and allowed us to taylor our ceremony in a way that was meaningful to us. Communication with her throughout the process could not have been easier! If you want someone caring, thoughtful, professional, responsive, and flexible, Liz and Joyful Unions are the ones you want! I highly recommend them!!

Our families thought we were crazy for using an "unknown" officiant on our wedding day but having never really 'connected' with the the "known" options available to us, we felt it in our best interest to look outside the box.

We were connected with Bill Holmes (through a mutual friend) and set-up a meeting/consultation. From the moment we met him until the moment we headed out the door for our honeymoon we couldn't have been more pleased with Bill. He seemed sincerely interested in our story (and how our stories would compliment one another), our individual concerns and, perhaps most importantly, he was EXTREMELY sensitive to the concerns of our families.

The ceremony was beautiful, heartfelt and touching to us and our guests. Following the wedding, my grandmother pulled us aside to say how touched she was by the ceremony (and if you can melt my my grandma's heart you can melt a glacier!). The wedding was a perfect blend of humor, nostalgia and romance and everyone seemed to resonate with it.

All we can say is THANK YOU, BILL!

My husband and I chose Liz Obrien to be our officiant because we wanted something non denominational and different. Since many people expect a male to be an officiant, we decided that having a female would be our something different. When we first had our initial meeting with Liz, we both knew right away that it was a perfect fit. We had met with a few other officiants prior to our meeting and had different experiences to compare it with. We only had to meet with Liz one time - at our initial meeting (several months out from our wedding) - for her to gather all of the information that she needed from us. She was very responsive to any email communication over the waiting period between our meeting and the wedding date. She was also very resourceful and provided us with many options in her readings.

We initially were a little concerned about not having our officiant at the rehearsal, however, the day of the ceremony went so SMOOTH you would have thought it was practiced on a daily routine by Liz. Her execution of the ceremony and readings were flawless - and we received MANY comments from guests about how awesome our ceremony was. Everything seemed almost personalized and she didn't skip a beat. This actually was very surprising for us because we tried hard to have our reception be the highlight of the night - however - Liz was our shining star that day and swept our guests off their feet and into our love story - and overly exceeded our expectations.

Let me also not forget to mention that she sent us a copy of everything she said / read in our ceremony almost immediately after the wedding and turned in all paperwork promptly.

We planned our wedding for out of state, so we never actually had a chance to meet Liz in person before our ceremony. She interviewed us both over email in advance and was going to put together a personalized ceremony. I wasn't sure how this would work out. It ended up being better than we could have ever asked for. It felt like she really took the time to understand our story and she put together a very touching service. It was like she had known us for years. Thanks to Liz, we had a wonderful, personal, and memorable wedding service.

Liz's words on love & marriage during the ceremony were perfect, not too long winded and a very strong message. We can't recommend Liz highly enough.

She took the time to interview both of us and then worked those interviews seamlessly into the ceremony, making it even more personal and meaningful than we ever expected. She was instrumental in planning the ceremony and gave us plenty of suggestions and examples to consider. She's a gifted public speaker and has a bubbly personality. Liz was sincere and caring about every part of the ceremony. Her eloquent presentation was touching and loving, but also peppered with humorous anecdotes! She was simply an amazing officiant and you will love her, just like we do!

We could not have asked for anyone better to not only present our vows in front of our friends and family, but also to make our day uniquely memorable. After first meeting with Liz we knew she was passionate about our relationship and took the right steps to get to know both myself and my husband as individuals and also as a couple. Through this process she was able to come up with a ceremony that was not only beautiful to hear, but unique to us and true to our hearts. On the day of our wedding, she arrived fully prepared with a smile on her face and seemed to be as excited as we were! The 'unique' part of our experience came when during our garden ceremony it began to rain to the point that guests ran for cover. Liz, with wet hair and soaked clothes, stood by our sides with a bright, calm smile and continued reading through the rain without a concern. It was an amazing moment and could not have been lived without her. We will continue to highly recommend her services to anyone who is looking for an amazing, smooth, and perfect ceremony!

Liz was our officiant and we could not have been happier! She was warm, welcoming, and disarming when she interviewed us. Her sparkling blue eyes hinted at the joy and happiness she would bring to the service; yet it was her listening skills and the amount of time she spent with us that made the ceremony uniquely ours. She truly got to know us as a couple and wrote our union based on our relationship, which included my 6 year old child. As a result, our ceremony was not just a marriage, but the creation of a family...a safe haven/harbor, where we would all love and protect each other -- no matter what -- from the world. This was important to all three of us as it set the tone for our lives together. It was perfect, but it never would have happened without Liz.

I had a very non-traditional wedding that was not pre-planned. Ultimately we gave friends and family a three day warning to attend if they were able and willing. Then we realized "oops! we need someone to marry us don't we!". A friend recommended Liz and we were able to quickly get in touch and fortuneatly she was able to accomodate us. Liz listened to our unique request of a non-traditional wedding and was able to personalize our vows and enhance our overall experience.

Our commitment ceremony was in the planning stages for months and Liz was with us from the beginning to our sacred day. Her joyful heart and kind words provided warmth on a unbelievably cold day in the red rocks. She is sincere, creative, passionate and compassionate about being a witness of our love and relationship. We thank you Liz! We consider you a friend for life and will forever remember our very special day with you and Mother Nature at her best! Love and light, Ashley and Darla

Your ceremony amidst the red rocks was among the highlights of my Arizona wedding season. Your beautiful attire, warm and genuine spirits, and heartfelt vows created quite the moment. It was my true pleasure to be on the receiving end of your love and light!
