Officiant

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes!
What is your attire for the ceremony?
I usually wear a black suit and a top which is color complimentary with the rest of the Wedding Party. If it is warm, I might wear a black top and black pants. I can also wear a cream-colored Minister's robe or a black Judicial robe. I wear close-toed shoes. I dress nicely, but never want to stand out in the Wedding photographs.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Yes, very flexible. My couples always have final approval of their Ceremony scripts. They may always choose their Vows.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Absolutely, and I encourage it! Every couple receives a "Vow Writing Kit" so they can write their own vows if they wish.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
I have a large list of Readings, or would be happy to include something specific given to me by the Bride and Groom. I also like to encourage family members or friends to perform the Readings too. This makes the Ceremony much more meaningful to all.
How long are your ceremonies?
The first step is to ask the Bride and Groom how long they would like their Ceremony to be. Then I ask what they would like to include. I feel part of my job is to work within the time-frame preferred by the Bride and Groom and still include the things that are most important to them. The usual Ceremony time is 15-25 minutes.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes. But in order for the couple to save money, I usually do not attend. My couples already have their Wedding Ceremony scripts in hand and are comfortable with the text they have approved, complete with directional cues. There are never any surprises. I send a copy of the Wedding Ceremony to the coordinator and all appropriate vendors. Since the Wedding Coordinator does most of the work at the rehearsal, it is not always necessary for me to attend. But if the Bride and Groom will feel more comfortable - - I'll be there! I also send the couple a Wedding Participant's Guide. This outlines the important things I would cover if I were to attend the rehearsal. Tips for the Best Man, Maid of Honor and Wedding Party - - and also the Parents of the Bride and Groom
Do you supply a sound system?
No.

Words cannot express how pleased we were with Lauren. She is an angel that is highly organized, very clear. The ceremony was one part of the wedding we had very little concern about since it was so well thought out and prepared. The guests loved her as well.

We do not generally write reviews, but Lauren deserves it as she was exceptional. We highly recommend her.

Lauren is absolutely excellent. We booked her for an out-of-state wedding, and could not have been happier with the level of service!

She made all the seemingly complex requirements crystal clear, and checked-in multiple times in the months before the wedding to make sure we were on track!

The script she uses is beautiful, and we had several guests independently approach us to tell us so after the wedding. We could not recommend her more highly!!

Casey, your Wedding was the perfect example of out-of-state Wedding planning made easy. Everything was perfect! You looked flawless and Steven and the boys in their suspenders were so stylish. And how could anything go wrong with Patrick as your Man of Honor? Please give him a big hug and a warm thank you for being so on top of everything on the Wedding Day. Happiness always to you and Steven!

Lauren was so helpful from the beginning to the end. Her organized approach with materials and information (and patience) made booking an out of state ceremony so much easier. While she worked to make things run smoothly, she was also intent on making the ceremony personal for the Bride and Groom. We appreciate so much all she did to make the wedding ceremony perfect.

Thank you,

Thanks so much for the kind words, Deborah! It always seems like planning an out-of-state Wedding would be so daunting, but you did a great job and you had a wonderful Wedding Team.

Lauren was amazing! I would highly recommend her to officiate your wedding! As soon as we met Lauren, we knew that she was the perfect person to marry us. She was warm and made us feel very comfortable right off the bat. That said, you should know that she doesn't pressure a decision to use her services at the initial meeting- In fact, she urges a little thought time. How great is that in a world of push-services?! Lauren is extremely knowledgeable about all of the details regarding the legal aspects of marriage and will walk you through every step. Most importantly, Lauren provided us with an extremely beautiful ceremony. She gave us many options and suggestions for a ceremony that was catered to our personal preferences and represented us just right. Thank you again Lauren!

Dear Annie! Thank you so much for your kind words! Everything about your Wedding was spectacular! You both were so gorgeous on your Wedding Day! But what I will remember most about you and Chris is how all of your vendors absolutely fell in love with both of you. "You are doing Annie & Chris' wedding? Aren't they just the nicest???" Well, yes, you are! Your love for one another is made even stronger because you share the same love and passion for teaching. You understand each other so well because of this. Go forward and touch the many lives I know you will make more wonderful in the years ahead of you! I'm so glad that destiny stepped in and got the two of you together forever!

Lauren is great. There is no other way to describe her. She is professional and helpful. Following all her directions made getting the marriage license easy. Of course in all of the stress, the day of the wedding we managed to forget it but she was very understanding. She explained to our witness what they had to do to witness it and then asked that we overnight it to her and she then sent it off. Even emailed us to tell us that it had been sent. Great officiant!

Hi Sweetie. The Number One Rule I've learned over the past fifteen years, no matter what goes wrong is: "Let's not panic." Everything can be fixed. I'm SO glad you stayed positive and continued to enjoy the day! That is the main thing. Everything really worked out well and I wish you and your beloved happiness always! That is not going to be hard for you as you are both so happy and jubilant, I can't see anything else in your future! Enjoy your life as Mr. and Mrs.!

We couldn’t have been blessed with a better wedding officiant than Lauren. She is a true professional by every definition of the word. Lauren guided us through the entire process from pre ceremony to post ceremony covering every detail (including helpful reminders!) to ensure a flawless wedding. But it’s more than Lauren’s reliability, integrity, and professionalism that makes her a solid “ten”. It was Lauren’s poise combined with her heartfelt words that made our ceremony so warm and personal. It’s truly amazing, considering the numerous weddings Lauren has officiated, that she made our wedding feel like the truly “special” one. We’re absolutely certain that she brings that same fresh and genuine joy to every single wedding. She is a super star that made our wedding all that we dreamed it would be! If wedding officiants were known by one name, like legendary entertainers and designers are (Cher, Madonna, Beyonce, etc.) THE name in the wedding industry would simply and elegantly be “Lauren”.

Dear Barbara, I really don’t know what to say…your words brought tears to my eyes and I was overwhelmed by your kindness! Thank you so much for such a lovely description for an absolutely beautiful and joyous event. It was my honor to be chosen as your Officiant, and my joy to be present on your Wedding Day. Everything about your day was so heartfelt. From the closeness of your families and friends, to your heartfelt Vows, to even little “Sweet Pea,” the puppy, who could not be left alone. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share my strengths which, thankfully, continue to represent my endless passion for my career.

Lauren did a wonderful job as our wedding officiant. She was on top of her game at all times. She would send copies to our home of our contracts as well as things we needed to know that we may not of. She was always very responsive, very professional and very personable. On the day of the wedding our florist gave us two roses that we did not know about and she added it into the ceremony that day as a rose for our mothers! We recommend her to anyone who is looking to get married.

In addition to planning out the ceremony and ironing out all the details, Lauren helped us answer many of the certification / legal questions we had being that we had a destination wedding in California. Don't look any further for an Officiant. There is no better. Seriously, Lauren is amazing!

Dear Mitch,
I will always remember your Wedding for many reasons, but the two that will stay in my memory forever are your boutonnieres, and Alexis' dress! I just loved the wine cork boutonnieres, and now wish I had taken a close-up photo or two of them! So very creative! Alexis was such a gorgeous and stunning Bride! I had never seen a dress with a white feather bodice, and it was really captivating. It suited her sense of style and elegance beautifully. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your beautiful Wedding Day at Ponte!

She was always personable, professional, and a pleasure to work with. She's exactly what a bride needs; a truly special find in a wedding vendor and person. She let us build an ideal ceremony for us, allowed us to provide our feedback and was open to suggestions on adapting our ceremony to fulfill our wants. She was a true calming presence on the wedding day and did a phenomenal job officiating our ceremony. Don't hesitate, book her while she's available!

Thank you so much for the lovely review! I know how stressful things were during those first few weeks of our professional relationship. I know how hard that time was for you and Duane and many others. But we moved past all of that, and went on to create a Wedding for the two of you that was full of sparkles, crystals and sunlight! It was such a beautiful day at Keyways and I will never forget your and Duane's radiant smiles on your Wedding Day. And thank you to the both of you for all you do to make this world a better and safer place for all of us!

Dear Avalon. Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I loved working with you from Day One. I knew we were kindred spirits in the "organized" category. Nothing left to chance, no stone overlooked. The result was a perfectly AMAZING Wedding at The Grand Tradition. I loved every minutes of it. Especially when you came around the lake in the Horse and Carriage and I got to hear all of the "ooh's and ah's!"

Hi Cassie! Thank you so much for the nice review. I loved performing your Wedding. Andrew was so cute and was a bit nervous before the Ceremony. It was nice to see all of the nervousness disappear as soon as he saw you walk down the aisle. Happiness always to the both of you!

Dear Heather and David. I never worry about planning a Wedding from across the country, but planning a Wedding from the other side of the world turned out to be just as easy. Thank you so much for all you did to keep on top of things so none of us had to worry. I loved your Groomsmen. They were all so charming. And I loved having hot tea! And let's not get started on the kilts! You all looked amazing, and so did the most demure and beautiful Heather. She was like a perfect rose. It was a wonderful day, and I wish you both happiness always!

I loved your Wedding and every single thing about it. I felt so honored that you chose me to be your Officiant. The best thing, is that you live so close by, and we will always get to run into one another and think about your magical Wedding Day! Love you both!

We could not have asked for a better Officiant! Ms. Seals is extremely organized and informative. I never had to stress about anything related to our ceremony because I knew she had it covered. Our ceremony was beautifully written and all of our guests thought it was wonderful! I am so glad we chose her to marry us and would recommend her 100% to any future couples. Thank you so much for all of your hard work, Lauren. Our wedding ceremony was exactly what we wanted. You were such a pleasure to work with, and we will definitely recommend you!

Dear Lauren. Words cannot even come close to begin describing how grateful we are for all that you did for us! Jeff and I had such an amazing wedding ceremony and we have you, especially, to thank for that! You conducted yourself so professionally and the moment we met you, we felt a connection and knew we had to sign the papers! Our family and friends commented on how emotional our ceremony was and you even got me choked up when you did our “Love Letters and Wine.” Thank you so much for making our wedding so special and memorable for us, we wouldn’t change it an any way! Thank you again, Jeff and Hollie

Dear Jeff and Hollie. Thank you so much for the kind review. When I found out you were going to have your dogs, Endo and Moto, in the Wedding, I wanted the job so badly. And I got it - - and so much more. As I looked at you during your Wedding Ceremony I saw two adorable people with a future so bright and shinning it brought a tear to my eye. I am so proud of both of you and all you have accomplished so far. I can only imagine that your future will be fabulous and wonderful. Happiness always!

I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful job you did at our Wedding Ceremony. You were amazing and I couldn’t have even imagined anything better. Evan and I both have talked numerous times since the Ceremony about how special you helped make everything. The Mother’s Rose Ceremony was perfect and I want to thank you again for having the “emergency roses” in your emergency kit. I should have remembered those! Anyway, thank you again and again and again for being such a BIG part in our most special of days. Thank you for being so on top of everything, organized, on time, pleasant to be around, easy going…THANK YOU!!!!!

For anyone considering who to choose for a Wedding Officiant, this is a no brainer! My wife and I come from a service background and Lauren is amazing with that! Service is just part of it though! The way she performed with confidence and compassion and her soothing voice and voice inflection made us both feel very at ease and comfortable. She guided us though our wedding ceremony and guests were all elated with the Ceremony. Due to Lauren, her preparation and exceptional guidance with our Vows, her delivery, truly made it heart-felt, and so memorable that all of our guests commented that it was one of the best Ceremonies they have ever witnessed! We love Lauren!

Ms. Seals was so easy and wonderful to work with! We met over Skype since we lived across the country, and from the moment we began it felt like speaking with an old friend. She performed exactly the type of ceremony we wanted with grace and humor. She's been doing her job for a long time and covered every detail, even asking the shade of my dress to ensure her outfit wouldn't clash. She professional, sweet, and couldn't have been better!

Lauren was an absolute pleasure to work with. She made us feel at ease from the very first time we spoke. I knew we had found the one to marry us. We got many compliments on the ceremony saying it was the most beautiful ceremony and I know many got teary eyed :) Lauren was the best to work with and I definitely would recommend her to anyone. She always responded promptly to calls or emails. All her ceremonies are beautiful, it was tough deciding what kind of ceremony we wanted and I am positive we made the right choice.

Lauren made everthing so simple for us and came through on the our day in a BIG way! She arrived early to go through the ceremony with all our vendors and she realized the DJ forgot to get a song for the recessional and Lauren pulls out a CD with wedding music out of her handy dandy emergency kit. Thanks again Lauren for making our day so special and saving the day!!
