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.

We picked Lauren because we felt she was very organized and was one of suggested vendors at our venue (Pala Mesa Resort). Since we didn't live very close to Temecula we were able to speak with Lauren through Skype. She is very quick in response through emails. She contacted all our vendors that she would be coordinating with. She did a wonderful job at our wedding ceremony.

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,
Deborah Orlowski

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. Not only did you and your family have a great time, so did we! Many continued blessings for the Bride and Groom who are so very, very in love!

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.

Dear Delaney. Thank you so much for the wonderful review! Wow! I didn't realize that YOU didn't know about the roses either! But we went with it and it was lovely! Never miss an opportunity to present the mothers with roses and to mention that this will be your last kiss to them as their "single children." I will never forget everyone going, "Awwwww!"

My wife and I were very blessed to find Lauren on Yelp. Lauren was amazing throughout our process. Planning with her was effortless and she offered so many amazing additions to our ceremony! 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!
