Your ceremony is the heart of your wedding day--don’t leave it to an amateur! Let us inspire you! We can tailor the ceremony to be exactly what you want, be it elegant, light-hearted, romantic, upbeat, spiritual, or just plain FUN! We have many resources to get us started, and you can add your own ideas as well. We’ll create a memory that will last a lifetime! And if you're looking for a short 'n sweet, simple ceremony, we have those too! We try offer ceremonies for every budget. Let your ceremony be a joyful and unique reflection of YOUR love--not a beige, cookie-cutter service that will have your guests dozing off! Our officiants serve almost the entire state of Colorado--and they're talented, energetic, experienced and (most important) passionate about weddings. We’re big on humor--not the slapstick comedy type--but the infusion of a lightness and playfulness (while still retaining the beauty of the words we speak) that calms frazzled nerves, infuses joy into the celebration and sets us apart from more traditional officiants. We're on a mission to eradicate beige wedding ceremonies from the planet (or at least our corner of it!). We hope you'll join us! Read less

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Christian (no denomination), Christian - Baptist, Christian - Catholic, Christian - Episcopalian, Christian - Lutheran, Christian - Methodist, Christian - Presbyterian, Jewish
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Of course! We perform wedding ceremonies at any location
What is your attire for the ceremony?
Lyssabeth's wedding officiants adhere to a strict professional dress code. Typical attire generally falls into one of two categories: 1. religious garb (i.e. ministerial-type robe and/or stole) or 2. Appropriate, subdued wedding attire (suit and tie for men, suit, pantsuit or dress with sleeves for women).
 
 Of course, if you have a special request for officiant dress that we can accommodate, we're happy to do so. Just ask. (We'll be happy to dress up as a pirate or don a Hawaiian-themed shirt for the festivities!)
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Yes. We want your ceremony to be 100% reflective of your love and values. While we have numerous wording options for you to include in your ceremony, we're also open to any other wording you'd like to add.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
You bet! We'll even help you, if you like.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
We have many selections, but no "must" choices. It's all about what you want.
How long are your ceremonies?
The length of the ceremony can vary from just 10-12 minutes for our Elopement Ceremony up to as long as you like for our customized versions. We always say that a couple can get a lot of creativity into a 20-25 minute ceremony, which is the average length of our larger ceremonies.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No, but we can refer you to some resources if you want that service.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes. Rehearsals are included in our Premium Custom Ceremony package and you can add a rehearsal to any other ceremony level if you want.
Do you supply a sound system?
Our officiants do not carry their own sound systems as these are generally provided either by the venue or the ceremony musician.

Last but definitely not least...Thank you SO much to everyone at Lyssabeth's!! You ALL did a fantastic job in coordinating our ceremony and we will be forever grateful.

We used Bill Donovan as our wedding officiant, and he exceeded our expectations! From the first time we met, he was so enjoyable to be around. He loved hearing our story and really tailored the ceremony to be just about us. We got to choose exactly what was said, and we went back and forth with several drafts before coming up with the final ceremony draft. Everything went perfectly on the wedding day, and we felt so comfortable having him up there to marry us. Truly a magical experience! I'd highly recommend Bill especially if you are looking for a custom ceremony that is all your own.

I highly recommend lyssabeth's elopement service. Maureen, from the Monterey area, helped us put together a ceremony that matched our needs and desires. She never gave us a sales pitch but really cared about what we wanted and what we could afford. Our officiant,Eileen Woodward, checked in with us many times prior to our marriage and performed a wonderful ceremony. If you are looking to keep your elopement stress free and in line with what you want, this is the service for you.

Hi Theresa,

Thank you for placing your confidence in us for your recent Monterey elopement. As we discussed when you retained us, we do make a concerted effort to keep stress and the couple as far apart from one another as possible both up to and including the wedding day (after that, you're on your own LOL)!

I'm so glad that Eileen and I were able to do that for you!

Years of marital bliss wished for you and Bob!

We can't thank Bill and Lyssabeth's enough for being a wonderful and fantastic addition to our wedding day. We truly appreciate all of the effort and thoughtfulness that they put into our ceremony. Not only did our ceremony blow away the two of us, but we had virtually every single attendee tell us “that was the best ceremony ever” and “you could really tell that Bill cared about you two” and “WOW, your wedding officiant did an amazing job.”

To be honest, the quotes could just keep coming. Bill was the best person that we could have ever asked for. He was easy to work with, extremely detail oriented, calm, enthusiastic, structured, passionate and it was an utterly remarkable experience.

Thanks again so much Bill. We will always have great memories of working with you.

We are so pleased with how smoothly the planning process went and how professional and SWEET Julie was. She not only performed the ceremony but tried to help us with lodging and reception when our first place/choice fell through. We managed to make things work out despite the challenges of planning something so last minute but I really appreciated how sweet and thoughtful Julie was. Not only that, it was a windy/cold day and some of our friends were not planning to ski. Julie's husband, Brian, was quite the gentleman helping the non-skiers reach the destination spot. They all raved about how wonderful and friendly Julie was and what a complete gentleman Brian was.

The ceremony itself was perfect - it was very sweet, short and to the point (exactly what we wanted!)!! Our friends were surprised at how nicely written the vows were. They thought we had customized them! We received only glowing feedback from our guests and know it would not have been the same had Julie not been our minister. She was very professional, communicated well via emails and phone/voicemails, and I really appreciated how she went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure we had our "perfect" day! I would definitely recommend Julie and Lyssabeth's wedding planners to make your day as special as ours was! Thank you for helping us make our day memorable!

Wow! Very impressed!

I am so glad I trusted Lyssabeths! Dana did a spectacular job at our wedding! She was professional and super organized. I love her lively personality!..she is truly a gem! She met with us and also skyped with us. Dana was on time at all of our meeting as well and even reached out to us via phone several times throughout. She responded promptly to all our questions. I am exceptionally pleased with Lyssabeths! Couldn't have asked for a better wedding officiant! And can't say enough about my amazing wedding all because Dana came prepared and kept our guests interested. I would recommend Lyssabeths to any bride! And please choose Dana, she made our wedding ceremony unforgettable!

Okay, now wait a minute. Dana is good, but she's not the ONLY topnotch professional wedding officiant that we have in the metro Denver area. You're going to give her a big head and then how will she fit through the door of her next wedding venue???

Oh, okay--we'll give Dana her moment in the sun. She is wonderful at what she does, isn't she? I'm thrilled that you had such a connection with her and felt she enhanced your special day. (And I'm only kidding about the big head--Dana is one of the most humble people I know.)

Thanks for your glowing endorsement!

Matt Raynak is an awesome officiant - and we appreciate working with Lyssabeth's service to find him! He was super fun, laidback, and gave a us great ceremony. He made us laugh, and he made our parents cry, and he's got great suggestions for ceremony ideas. Lyssabeth's was easy to work with and had an online payment system that made everything very smooth. Would definitely recommend using them to find your officiant - they can give you a ton of choices that finding officiants one by one simply can't offer.

Lyssabeth's Wedding Officiants responded with the following comments:

Hi Elyse,

Wowza! What a ringing endorsement for both officiant Matt Raynak and Lyssabeth's! We aim for lots of laughter and happy tears so I'm glad we were successful in that regard for you and Chris!

And we do aim to make our booking and contract-signing process as user friendly as possible, so I'm thrilled that you found it to be so. Just a note to clarify your glowing testimonial for anyone considering us to officiate their wedding. We're not an officiant referral services per se. All of our officiants are trained by us and utilize Lyssabeth's resources, contracts, policies, etc. (The only difference with each of us is our personalities.)

We're a little unique in the wedding officiating world because of the way we do business (everything but the actual officiating and writing of the ceremony is handled through our central office). But it works for us and apparently it did for you, Elyse. Yea!

Thanks so much for taking the time to review our services. We so appreciate it!

We had Dana as our officiant for our wedding in September. She was so awesome and fun to be around! She made us both feel so comfortable and the ceremony went very smoothly thanks to her! Even though we just picked the basic ceremony, she made it personal and fun. I would highly recommend her!

Hi Caitlin,

We wrote the Basic ceremony to fit the needs of couples looking for a more-affordable, but creatively and beautifully scripted ceremony option. So, I'm thrilled that it met your needs and felt fun and not cookie-cutter! And who better than to deliver it than the delightful Dana Bevis! I agree--she IS great fun to be around.

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We wish you and Brandon a long and happy marriage!

Terri Woodd was the officiant for our supposed to be beach wedding!! Terri was the perfect match for the officiant I had in mind, during our first conversation I knew she was going to be perfect and that she loved being an officiant! On our wedding day we had rain and gale force winds, Terri asked me where we were doing the wedding and I said outside on the back patio ( we would have all been blown away on the beach), keep in mind the wind and rain and she was so willing to do it anywhere. The ceremony went absolutely PERFECT, Terri has the most compassionate demeanor, she kept my very anxious soon to be husband calm and so serene, it was so magical! Terri I can not thank you enough, my wedding will be in my thoughts forever and so will you! You are one amazing person and I am glad you were meant to be part of our wedding!!! If you want the most magical wedding day ever, Terri is the officiant you want!

Getting married on the Oregon coast is not for the faint of heart. One does need to go with the flow. (And I mean that quite literally because sometimes it flows and flows and flows!)

You are correct in that Terri LOVES being an officiant, and it shows in the relationships she develops with her couples. Thanks so much for taking the time to capture Terri's personality in writing and for your resounding endorsement of our services!

I just wanted to write and tell you all how much we think of Bill Donovan of Lyssabeth's Wedding Officiants. Bill officiated our civil union service last Sunday, 8-25-13. He did an amazing job! I had friends and family members asking me, after the service, where we found Bill because they enjoyed his style and presence at the ceremony so much.

With the laws changing so rapidly across the country, I think that gay marriage and civil unions are going to become more and more commonplace. So I think there is going to be a strong market for officiants who let people know they are open and accepting.

Lyssabeth's is one of those companies and Bill certainly is one of those officiants. He treated Doug and I with great respect from the minute we met him. He was open that we were his first gay couple, but you would never have known it. It seemed like it was something he had done many times before - probably because he just treated us like any other couple. That was all we wanted. And because he treated us that way, it felt very comfortable and easy, and we trusted that he knew what he was doing. When you are hiring so many professionals for your big day, you don't want to end up second guessing your decisions about who you hired. We never had a moments hesitation with Bill. We knew right after meeting him that he was the right fit for us.

Sincerely,

Dan S & Doug R

P.S. Lyssabeth's service was also excellent - easy to book and e-sign documents, make payment, etc! This simplified things and was great! Can't thank them enough.

Hi Dan and Doug,

How wonderful that the two of you hit it off so well with Bill Donovan. While we always strive for that deep personal connection with our couples, it's true that for some couples, we're blessed to "click" almost immediately.

And you are correct that this was Bill's first Colorado civil union and he was thrilled to work with the two of you. The handfasting you included in your ceremony was a unique and memorable addition (and the photos showing that part of the ceremony were fabulous!).

Bill and I wish you years and years of happiness together!

Thanks for your kind words. All of our Vail brides (and grooms!) just love working with Heather. I think she combines two qualities that couples appreciate--a eye for details that is second to none (Heather doesn't miss a trick--in fact, she keeps ME on my toes!) and a real passion for officiating.

So glad she was able to make your wedding special!

We couldn't have been more pleased to have discovered and selected Lyssabeth's. My husband and I were at a complete loss for what to do when it came to an officiant. We don't really know anyone who we felt confident asking. When we found Lyssabeth's it seemed like a good option to explore.

When we met our officiant for the first time we were extremely impressed with the process. We had options for vows that made life easy, found answers to every question we had, and we felt an immediate bond to our future officiant Vicky Hampton In addition, the service is very customizable which is exactly what we wanted.

Vicky replied to emails very promptly which makes life so much easier. We had a second meeting with Vicky just to spend time together. She became a friend that we truly respect and enjoy. She made the process leading up to the wedding very comfortable and lent us a great deal of confidence.

The day of our wedding was no exception. Vicky did such a wonderful job. She was humorous, tasteful, professional, friendly, patient, and organized. After all was said and done I can't imagine having selected a better person to officiate our wedding ceremony.

To top it all off, Vicky was diagnosed with cancer before our wedding. Even though she was going through chemo and other major hurdles, she always had a smile and a positive attitude towards life. She is an amazing person and friend. My husband and I hope to have her in our life for many, many years.

Your words are a true testament to Vicky's character and there's nothing I can add to embellish them. It's true that she's had some major health challenges in 2013 and the manner in which she nonetheless put her couples front and center is truly amazing.

I'm honored and privileged to have Vicky on our Denver officiating team and I thank you for your beautifully worded and glowing endorsement. I know Vicky will be over the moon when she reads this.

Our wedding was in Carmel, CA. Lyssabeth's serves a few states, so we chose our Officiant from the local CA list. His name is Vince LoForti, and he was outstanding! I would recommend this organization and Vince in particular, for anyone who needs a wedding officiant for a 1st or 3rd marriage, to renew vows, or even just to elope! My Groom and I loved Vince's upbeat attitude and desire to tailor the ceremony to reflect us. He spoke from his heart, and we spoke from ours. t was wonderful to have him celebrate with us on our wedding day!

Lyssabeth's Wedding Officiants responded with the following comments:

Vince doesn't get to do as many weddings as he used to as he's a new daddy and recently took on a new full-time position that keeps him hoppin'! But even in a part-time capacity (we'll take him however much we can have him!), he just charms his couples and their wedding guests. He's a delight to work with and I'm so glad you took the time to share your thoughts with the Wedding Wire community.

Rob & I live in Australia and definitely benefited from using the help of Lyssabeth's with the organisation of our entire elopement wedding which was held in beautiful San Francisco. Maureen & Jeremy helped to organise every aspect of our wedding day and for that, we are truly grateful. They understood our brief perfectly and at all times they provided solutions to every one of my 'attention to detail' questions. Maureen & Jeremy work with some amazing people and we found every one of their recommendations to be great. All of the people involved in our wedding day offered the same high level of service that Maureen & Jeremy had provided. Officiant, hair & make-up, photography, videography as well as advice on the venue and the hiring of our requested American Muscle Cars. They even went the extra mile and organised a Nanny to care for our son in the evening. Your wedding day should be enjoyable and stress-free and the organising process should be as well. Let the professionals do what they do best, they are truly amazing at what they do.

Vicky Hampton was our officiant and she was perfect! She took the time to get to know us and helped us put together a ceremony that reflected the two of us perfectly.

Lyssabeth's was very easy to work with, accomodating, flexible and kind. We are from Massachusetts and decided 4 days before flying Colorado that we wanted to elope while there. Lyssabeth's was very easy to work with on short notice. Julie, the officiant of Breckenridge, even changed her weekend plans so she could be available to us.......AND she offered her beautiful home to marry us with fantastic views of Breckenridge ski resort. My husband and I could not be happier!

We organised our wedding through Lyssabeths. Heather Rawlings (our officiant) was absolutely fabulous and performed our amazing ceremony on her skis on the piste in breckenridge, Colorado. We all had a truly fabulous day and she was so lovely, warm and full of life. We will remember our day forever and thank heather for making it perfect. We couldn't have wished for a more amazing day. From the moment we arranged the wedding everything went beautifully smoothly and everything we wanted was accommodated.

They are resonable priced, and they work very fast. Once we paid we had our contract and our officiant emailed us to start the process. We didn't have to think about a thing or worry about anything. They were on top of things and because of that we didn't stress at all about our ceremony, which was wonderful through the planning process!

I can't say enough great things about my officiant, Christine Turner, who I booked through Lyssabeths. She created a personal ceremony for us based on our input, and presented it professionally and seamlessly. She was on time, professional, easy-going and our guests loved her. It's worth it to book your officiant for the rehearsal as well as ceremony, as she helped us run through our vows and made us a bit more comfortable with the overall flow of the ceremony. I'm so happy I booked with Lyssabeths!

Unfortunately, Chris will be leaving us at the end of this year in order to concentrate on her full time real estate career. She was very torn over the decision (as you saw, she's a fabulous officiant and absolutely loves every couple with whom she works.). I wonder...would it be absolutely evil of me to pass along this review to her and see if it entices her to stay????

Yes, that would be wrong. But I think I'll do it anyway. Thanks so much for taking the time to submit a review. I know Chris will be thrilled--and it really might make her reconsider. Or maybe the real estate market in the Rockies will take another nose dive. One can always dream...

Lyssabeth's provided us with officiant John Bowen. Although we only had a brief phone conversation, and some email correspondence, it was almost as if he knew us when we met at the wedding. John was prompt, professional, and congenial. Our guests asked how long we had known him, and commented that he seemed like an old friend. John kept an easy smile, putting the guests at ease, as well as moving us through the ceremony efficiently, and even whispered jokingly to us about how well we were doing, and what was coming up next. After signing the marriage certificate, John exited as gracefully as he entered, and was never obtrusive. I would highly recommend his professional officiating services!

Yours is a perfect testimonial as to why a couple should hire a professional officiant for their day. I think sometimes couples confuse "professional" with "impersonal."

After eight years, an unforgettable reunion and a lifetime of memories, I FINALLY got to marry my true love; the only person whose happiness reflects my own and whose life mine
wouldn’t be complete without. My wife and I knew that planning our wedding we would run into many obstacles; once people met BOTH of us and realized they would be involved with a lesbian wedding. To be quite frank we were met with a lot of bias opposition. Luckily, our dream venue was able to suggest Lyssabeth's for us and recommend an officiate for our ceremony- Mary.

When we met with Mary that was a wrap; a true match made in heaven! We explained to her upon our first meeting that we wanted to have a very personalized ceremony and so she allowed us to customize our service just the way WE wanted it with a kind and courteous attitude; encouraging us every step of the way. Like any “Bride to Be” we wanted our day to be perfect and everything we ever imagined it would be…and it was in every way… PERFECT. Many people commented that the wedding was possibly one if not THE best one they had ever been to; and it seemed that the overall consensus of the evening was that the BEST part of the wedding was within the ceremony itself. Rae and I cannot thank Lyssabeth's enough for Mary and the flexibility and creativity that she inspired within us. Had it not been for those two elements especially; the love everyone felt would have been pre-ordained, and well..not about us. We both agree it was our originality and ability to envision a customized ceremony that made our wedding..our wedding; in fact we still get emotional just thinking about it. Mary was able to bring a unique quality to the most meaningful ritual of our lives and everyone kept commenting how obvious it was that she loves what she does! We wish you many more proceedings over couples who are looking for that extra special person to narrate the most important chapter of their never ending story… ♥♥

And yours certainly fit that description. What a memorable day!

We hired Mary Borsick as our officiant for our Pike's Peak elopement July 14, 2012. We found Lyssabth's through a web search and were overjoyed at the professionalism and prompt response to inquiries. We moved to Denver in June and got married in July, what a relief to have all of this handled so simply during our transition. We even had to change the original date and both Lyssabeth's and Mary were more than happy to accommodate us. Our small group of fiamily had a great time and Mary was wonderful, professional and so nice! Astounding for only communicating via email. We highly recommend both Mary and Lyssabth's!

Vicky Hampton officiated our wedding and we could not have been happier! We went with the basic package and chose the contemporary script. She took the time to call and also email me prior to our wedding day to make sure we were on the right track. She attended the wedding rehearsal per our request and took the time to mingle and speak with my parents and some of the bridesmaids/groomsmen before we got started. I really appreciated this since I was running around and making sure everyone was there for the rehearsal!

The ceremony was absolutely beautiful. Vicky delivered our ceremony with love and used humor in the perfect places. I have had so many compliments on our ceremony! It is amazing it was a script; it felt very personal and I can only attribute this to Vicky's delivery.

We hired Lisa to perform and ceremony and could not have been happier. From the first meeting she was so informative and helpful. She really helped us create the perfect ceremony for us and suggested some wonderful ways to include our son in the ceremony. Lisa gladly accommodated all of our requests and made everything run smoothly. She even handled the lack of lighting to read by...totally our fault by the way...like a complete pro and never missed a beat. She conducted the ceremony with a nice mix of solemnity and levity that brought both tears and laughter from everyone involved. Even though we only met her a couple of times before "the day", it felt like she was an old friend.

I think hiring an officiant for our wedding was the part of our wedding planning I dreaded the most in anticipation, but looking back on it, it turned out to be the easiest part of the process.

We found Lyssabeth's with a websearch, sent in a contact request, and were contacted back right away. Maureen walked us through the various options they offered and took the time to make sure we had just the ceremony we wanted. Corrina, our officiant, kept in contact with us before the wedding to polish the ceremony and timing, and this even though she was out of the country at the time. Amazing.

The ceremony went so well,and I think that was in large part due to Corrina's coordination, presence, and feeling. The words were wonderful, and we couldn't have been happier with our choice of officiant, I think.

We had most of our contacts via email and over the phone. We didn't need any 'face to face' meetings, and I think they've done this enough that none are really needed. But, I suspect if you did, they'd be just as professional.

Thank you Maureen, Corrina, and everyone at Lyssabeth's!

It's funny because the ceremony was what we spent the least amount of time planning and it became the only thing that went according to plan! Lyssabeth's services were exactly what we wanted - affordable officiating services. We got the basic package. They provided example scripts, I combined them to create our ideal script and then our officiant did a little personalization and we finalized everything. It was so easy! Vicky was our officiant and we met her for the first time the day of the ceremony. She was so great!! We had a couple of laughs during the ceremony and it was just perfect because it was just our style.

Involving teenagers in the ceremony can be tricky--some things are too babyish (like being a ring bearer) and others are too adult (like doing a reading in front of 300 people). So, we think it's important to offer ways that will involve teens that are age-appropriate and allow them to realize how much they, too, are a part of Mom or Dad's new life.

I'm thrilled that your day was so memorable! Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.

Ms. Dana Bevis performed our wedding ceremony and we could not have been more pleased with her! When we met with her she was so enthusiastic and genuine, we loved her! She responded promptly to all of our emails and questions, and was happy to make the changes we wanted, and had fantastic suggestions. The day of the wedding she was wonderful, and absolutely genuine, I would hire her again in a heartbeat, thanks Dana!

I found this company to be one of the most professional vendors I worked with during the wedding planning process. Vicky, my officiant, always emailed me back right away when I had questions. In fact, she was the one who prompted most of our conversations. And when my big day came, she introduced herself to me in person with the most calm and caring demeanor. I felt like she was really there to guide me through (I was nervous!). It was so helpful to have her peaceful and cheerful attitude through the ceremony. Overall I loved this company and would recommend it to ANY bride!!

Ariane,

Thanks for your kind words. We always say that we strive to keep stress and the bride as far apart from one another as possible on the wedding day. And no one is better at that than Vicky!

For the Basic Ceremony that you selected--which only calls for phone and email consults prior to the big day--it's especially important that the officiant be able to put couples at ease on the wedding day. I'm glad (although not surprised) that Vicky was able to calm your anxiety and help you create a picture-perfect ceremony experience.

Lyssabeth's Wedding Santa Cruz Officiant's was such a great experience! My husband and I wanted just a small intimate wedding on the beach, Corrina shared an amazing beach spot in Santa Cruz that was magical!
From the moment of contacting Lyssabeth's Wedding we were taken care of in a fast and professional manner with ease and comfort!
The ceremony itself was beautiful, it was as if Corrina wrote our vows just for us... it was perfect!
Thanks for making our special day so wonderful!

After not getting any calls back from judges and such, and seeing the prices from various clergy that do non-religious ceremonies, I decided to go another route. If we knew someone who could do our ceremony we would have gone that way. Lyssabeth's was very easy to use. Their website is very detailed, and when I inquired about my date I got an immediate response from a real person! The prices and descriptions of packages listed on the website are exactly what you get. I like the recorded samples of the various vows too, it really brings the words to life. Communication with our officiant was very smooth and he responded quickly to all of our emails and met with us at convenient times. The written materials provided by Lyssabeth's are very thorough. We didn't have to reinvent the wheel, there are so many ways to say "I do" and the samples from this company cover EVERYTHING you could possibly want. My husband and I were able to personalize our ceremony, but used at least 90% of the provided wording, and both of us are pretty creative and like to write!There were great ideas for various traditions for ceremonies as well. Trust me, you will be relieved to have professionals take the lead. I hired a caterer, a photographer, why not hire a professional officiant too? Scott, our officiant, attended and helped run our rehearsal which was great. It was helpful to us for him to become familiar with the wedding site and the wedding party. Overall, we loved Lyssabeth's.

I chose Lyssabeth’s Colorado Wedding Officiants because they served a wide range of destinations in Colorado, offered scripts for a variety of religious/secular ceremonies, and their packages were reasonably priced. Hiring Lyssabeth’s was one of the best decisions I made during the wedding planning process. My officiant, Dana, was an absolute joy to work with! Not only was she welcoming and sincere, but she was very responsive to my requests. Dana was also accommodating, and she incorporated several last-minute changes into the ceremony with ease. Thanks to Dana’s professionalism and outgoing personality, the ceremony was a beautiful and memorable event! I highly recommend Lyssabeth’s Colorado Wedding Officiants to any bride and groom seeking the ceremony of their dreams!

Corrina McFarlane was wonderful and did a beautiful job with our custom ceremony. We had hired another officiant who found out that she was due with her second child on our wedding date. We had just under 5 months until our wedding date and we contacted Lyssabeth's, and requested a meeting with Corrina. Upon our first meeting we knew that she understood what we wanted in a ceremony, and how we wanted things to happen.


We still get compliments on both our officiant and our ceremony. Thank you Corrina!!

Extremely pleased with Lyssabeths!! So many other services in the area didn't return my phone calls or emails...another officiant actually cancelled on my because I decided to do my winter ceremony outside! Maureen played phone tag with me & never gave up until she was able to talk to me & find out my needs....she & the website helped me tremendously & set me up with Chris Turner to do the ceremony who was aslo an absolute sweetheart! She braved the bitter cold that day like a champ and performed a beautiful ceremony. I'm so glad I used Lyssabeths & would use them again in a heartbeat! They definetely took away the stress I had about that aspect of the wedding planning! Go with them, you will not be dissapointed....you'll be in GREAT hands!!!

We ended up not using her since my mother had a heart problem and when we flew back home to be with her we threw something together having an ordained uncle marry us. I had to review still because she worked with me all through the process and was amazing. She walked me through marriage license laws, helped me pick a location that would have been perfect and answered every email or call right away. I wish that the big wedding with Jim marrying us would have worked out but all of her help was well worth the lost deposit.

I think that Maureen was a blessing for our family. Being that our photographer was a no-show Maureen took the time to take pictures with her own personal camera before and after. If it weren't for her genuine care for our special moment, we would not have had the pictures to capture it!

My husband and I used Lyssabeths Officiants services a little over a year ago for our small wedding of about 14 guests. Ken was our officiant and he was wonderful! Our ceremony was short, sweet and just how imagined it to be. I actually stumbled across this feedback forum because we would love to renew our vows at one point and I wanted to see if Ken is still with Lyssabeths and fortunately he is!

It still warms my heart to see all the couples who opt to have the intimate wedding like my husband and I had. After over a year we still talk about our wedding everyday and how happy we were with how wonderful and special everything turned out. Thank you Maureen for your grace and patience with a scatter brained so cal bride :)

We met with Maureen Thomson of Lyssabeth's and after meeting her the first time, we decided she was it. We didn't even want to see anyone else. We clicked with her the first time we met her. The second time we met to go over the ceremony, we had such a blast with her. She has a tiered plan--depending on how much you want in your ceremony drives the cost. If you just want a simple ceremony, the cost is very affordable. We decided on some unique parts--Celtic Handfasting & parents prayer.
On the day of the wedding, she was wonderful. Our families were so happy about our marriage and lots of people were crying. Maureen injected the PERFECT amount of humor and personality and just fit in like everyone else. She helped make our ceremony that much more beautiful. She also has a number of people that work for her if you're looking for something or someone more specific.

There was a lot of laughter throughout our service, the unexpected breaking of a candle and votive during the service, sweaty palms and comments about the sweaty palms from the maid of honour, more laughter, but through it all Megan just smiled and went with it. We had so many positive comments about what a fabulous job she did, a touching ceremony and readings. She let us be 'us' and THAT's what made our ceremony so special. I'd recommend her any day of the week.

The service that I received at Lyssabeth’s was wonderful when we booked our appointment. Prior to my wedding I changed my e-mail address and phone number and e-mailed Lyssabeth’s and told them of the change just in case they needed to contact me for any problems. I’m glad that I did because the officiant that we had booked no longer worked for them and was obviously not able to perform our ceremony. They set us up with John and he was very responsive and friendly. I would recommend them, just be sure they don’t make any last minute changes that you aren’t aware of.

Thanks for the feedback and I'm thrilled that your wedding ceremony turned out to be all that you'd hoped for. And yes, sometimes (although it's rare) life intervenes and for whatever reason your assigned officiant will be unable to perform your ceremony. In those unusual circumstances, we always have a backup available to step in for a seemless transition.

In your case, your original officiant moved out of state so we moved quickly to make sure Jim Anderson was able to step in and pick up where the original officiant left off. That's one of the advantages of working with a group of officiants as opposed to a single person. And of course we'd always be sure to communicate changes right away to a couple, so there will be no last minute surprises!

Thanks for your thoughtful words! We do pride ourselves on keeping stress and the bride as far apart form each other as possible on the wedding day. And yes, Jenn is a pro at that. And I'm willing to bet she kept you smiling,

As far as pricing, our price for a Classic Custom is $389, which falls within the average range of $300 to $425 charged by a professional Colorado wedding officiant. Sometimes couples are surprised at the amount of wedding officiating fees, until they see the amount of time that goes on behind the scenes to result in a polished, unique and memorable ceremony. We do try to keep our prices as low as we can while still be able to offer the best service around.

Thanks for your input. We always appreciate the time it takes to let us know how we're doing.

Maggie did a great job with my wedding. She did everything we asked for and then some. The only thing we heard from our guest was that she was hard to hear we had an outside reception with 80 people. But standing right in front of her she was great. The only people who really needed to hear her did. Thanks for a wonderful ceremony.

Thanks for your kind words. I just want to clarify that I believe your officiant was Megan Riley, as we don't have a Maggie on our officiating staff. (As long as she got YOUR names correctly, that's really all that matters!) I'm delighted (although not surprised) that you felt Megan to be a good fit. She exudes a warmth and sensitivity toward her couples that is unrivaled.

We generally advise couples that for weddings with more than 50 people and/or background noise (like traffic or rushing water) to provide a microphone for the officiant so that even those in the very back row can hear every word.

We used Lyssabeth's and Rachel Preston was our officiant. Rachel was great to work with and very flexible in helping us put together the perfect service. We knew right away when we met her that she was the perfect fit for us and our wedding. Everything went as planned and it was a great ceremony.

I was looking for a wedding officiant only days before our wedding due to our first person not being able to perform the ceremony. They got back to me quickly and gave me several choices. Our officiant, Vince, was wonderful. He communicated with us, was sincere without being "syrupy" or like Mr. Rogers. I believe he's a romantic at heart. He was prompt on our wedding day, greeted guests, gave us helpful hints and made it a wonderful day for us.

There was slight chance of rain forecasted but he said he'd be there rain or shine. We had blue skies but he braved the cold and wind and came although he had family from out of town
that came. He even stayed to to take a few pictures with us at our request.

I was so pleased with our services and our officiant that when I went to pick up a copy of our marriage license weeks later and there was a couple getting their license who asked about finding a wedding officiant, I recommended Lyssaberh's and Vince, by name. I gave her the site and phone number. Hope their wedding was as wonderful as ours. And I appreciated their follow up on our one month anniversary, wishing us a happy marriage.

Sincerely,
The new Mrs. H

Hi Stephanie,

Thanks for your kind words about Vince--and for referring him to another couple. One never knows what the weather will be like on the California coast, so we've all learned to tough it out. If our couples are game for an outdoor ceremony in any weather then so are we!

I am a bit puzzled as to the low mark for "value" as you seem to be truly delighted with our services and we do strive to provide topnotch value for what our couples are paying for. When your request came in with only 4 days to go until your wedding, we immediately bumped you to the top of our priority list and kicked things into high gear to pull together your ceremony in record time. (We even waived our customary last-minute rush fee for you.) If you have suggestions on how we can improve the value of our services, then please shoot me an email. I'd love to hear them. We're always looking for ways to improve while still compensating our officiants sufficiently for their level of expertise.

Years and years of love and happiness to you and Deans!!!

Lesley was a pleasure to work with. She was very personable and calm through all of our work before the wedding and - especially - at the ceremony. She helped us understand all the possibilities of a wedding ceremony, gave us much material from which to choose and, in the end, was very respectful of our "simple, casual" desires.

We’re both very grateful for her patience with the back-n-forth of writing our ceremony and for her flexibility in allowing our personalities to be in the forefront of our wedding. We have received several compliments on our ceremony and that’s largely owing to Lesley’s willingness to know and understand who we are and what we wanted from a wedding ceremony.

She's been a knowledgeable, calming influence before, during and after our wedding.

This package was perfect for us. We didn't want the 'big wedding' and only invited immediate family. The process was explained clearly and everything went smoothly on the day. We loved our photographer Meo, she knew what she wanted and it suited us well, we even got to recreate some of my husband's parents wedding photos, which was wonderful. Thanks for everything.

So glad your San Francisco elopement package was perfect for you! I didn't know about re-creating the parental photos until I read your review. What fun!

I wish the two of you years of happiness together!

Kimberly was our officiant and she was wonderful! She was so much fun to work with and the ceremony was beautiful! We were very pleased with how everything turned out. The price was a little high for what we were expecting, but it was worth it!

Lyssabeth's Wedding Officiants responded with the following comments:

Yes, Kim always gets rave reviews. Thank you for yours. In terms of price, our fees are about average for officiants in the area. And I agree that a professional wedding officiant is well worth the money. There are so many ins and outs to performing a ceremony well--especially if something unexpected occurs--and it's nice to know you're in good hands from start to finish.

Our wedding was officiated by Dana. She was easy to communicate with and very enthusiastic about our wedding. I liked that she incorporated "us" into the ceremony, even though it was just a basic script with pre-written vows. She did a nice job during the ceremony, but did stumble over her words once or twice. The best part was how easy going she was about starting the ceremony late. I had forgotten the marriage license and asked one of my bridesmaids to go get it for us. Dana was so sweet about the whole thing and said it was no problem at all. She was also really good about directing us. I was nervous about when I should start walking and she talked me through everything to assuage my concerns. Overall, we were quite pleased with Dana.

Lyssabeth's Wedding Officiants responded with the following comments:

Nicole,

I found out after your ceremony that Dana performed it with a raging migraine headache, which may have accounted for the word lapse. That's only one of the things that I love about Dana--and all of our officiants--they check their personal (and this case physical) baggage at the door when it comes to performing a ceremony. Our goal is to make it all about the bride and groom on their wedding day.

I'm thrilled that she was able to pull it off (beyond the minor lapse of a word or two) without you suspecting anything. She's a pro.

Thanks for sharing your experience.

We had our wedding in Carmel California and Stacy was our officiant. We were disappointed with the service we received for a few reasons. The reasons include Stacy’s belly showing and mispronouncing my name during our ceremony! She also left part 26B of our marriage certificate blank- causing us the hassle to connect with the county clerk and have it fixed. I regret using them!

Lyssabeth's Wedding Officiants responded with the following comments:

It's never a good thing when a client is unhappy with our services (but we do appreciate the high marks for responsiveness). Fortunately, it's a rare occurrence for us, as evidenced by our other reviews. This situation was fraught with inconsistencies and lack of communication, so it was very difficult to get to the bottom of the problem. We have photos of the wedding showing the officiant as wearing appropriate attire (no midriff-baring clothes are EVER allowed!) so I'm not clear on that reference. We also tried repeatedly to ascertain the problem with the marriage license (which item was incomplete) but clarification from the couple was never provided. All in all, it was a rather frustrating situation for all concerned. Clearly this bride had complaints and we did make every effort to resolve them, but in the end, we simply issued a partial refund rather than waste any more of the couple's time or ours in trying to sort out the situation.

My husband and I were very dissapointed in our officiant, mary, and how our ceramony turned out. None of our guests could hear anything she was saying, she rushed through the most important day of our life, and made jokes throughout the ceramony when she messed up!! Also they over charge so much!!! we paid $250.00 for 11 min of the officiant's time!!

Lyssabeth's Wedding Officiants responded with the following comments:

I'm sorry that you were not happy with your experience. Mary indicated that she's advised you to have a microphone for her during the ceremony, but that you opted to forego one.

One thing of note is that our prices are in line with what other officiants in the area are charging. You chose our pre-written ceremony which we indicated was 12-15 minutes of "speaking" plus time for your processional and recessional. I don't think any of us is capable of performing it in 11 minutes--we'd have to speak at an auctioneer's pace to achieve that!

There are numerous factors that go into the execution of the professional wedding ceremony--many of which the client does not see during the time that the officiant is present on the wedding day. If we could invest only 11 minutes of time into a ceremony, then we'd be able to reduce our fees by 90%. Unfortunately, that's not the case.

Do not spend your hard earned money paying for this company to officiate for your wedding.
My Husband and I did and the ceremony was terrible! We paid $250.00 for an officiant who was only at our wedding for 11 minutes. No one could hear anything she said, she rushed through the ceremony, and made a joke out of our special day.
You would be better off having a friend marry you!

Dear review reader,

I did think about responding in depth to this review, but realized that it's so off base that it would simply be a misuse of my time and a disservice to our current and future brides for me to expend any more energy on this.

This client booked our no-frills (but beautifully written!), 15-18 minute (not 11) ceremony and pre approved the wording beforehand. The ceremony was performed by one of our most experienced and popular officiants. (Feel free to listen to the audio of the ceremony here: http://www.lyssabeths.com/ceremony_samples.html).

We're sorry that the bride is unhappy, but her facts are so severely distorted that there is no way we can address this. We simply wish them well and instead turn our attention to the couples who are a better fit for our professional services.
