You have promised to cherish each other forever. This is my promise to you to create a ceremony for your wedding day…

Weave the story of your special relationship into the fabric of a wedding ceremony that presents you to your family, friends, guests and the world as you desire. Tell them how your love came to be, make your vows revealing your hearts’ love as you desire. Acknowledge those who have supported your journey along the way. Share the exchange of your rings, light a candle, and make it your own. Your marriage ceremony will be filled with joy and grace, peace and the promise of lasting love. In the light of day or the soft light of the moon, the words of your ceremony will bless all those present to witness your union.

Reissa Leigh made our Wedding Ceremony such a personal and special part of our Wedding. From the first time we spoke on the phone we knew she was the one we wanted to marry us. Once we met it was confirmed what a truly loving, special person she was and our date was booked. She's all the things you would want in an Officiant; professional, punctual, personable, great speaker, etc. but she is so much more and we feel incredibly fortunate to have met her and that she was the one to have married us.

Reissa was so great to work with throughout the entire wedding planning process. We met her two times prior to the wedding day, so once the wedding came it felt like we knew her! We instantly liked her the first time we met. She is very professional, kind and responsive. She made sure that the ceremony was personalized for us and made it out own. I would highly recommend Reissa going forward. She was great and made our wedding day very special!

Reissa was fabulous! Because of our busy schedule we were not able to meet in person prior to the wedding but it felt like she had known us for years when she performed the ceremony. This was a second wedding for both my husband and myself so we wanted things to be a little less traditional than a first wedding. Reissa worked very well with us to create a perfect ceremony for us and it was just that perfect! We cannot recommend her enough!

We had such a wonderful wedding ceremony with Reissa, and we are so glad that she officiated our ceremony!

My husband and I decided to do an elopement style ceremony at the Harvard Arboretum, so finding the right officiant to make our intimate ceremony meaningful was very important to us. Well, Reissa definitely delivered.

Reissa responded to my initial inquiry very quickly, and we started off with a phone call with her. We immediately liked her warmth and openness, so we decided to meet with her in person at a Starbucks so she could get to know us more. We chatted for an hour, which was wonderful because we felt that the ceremony would be officiated by someone who knew us and our story well.

Reissa gave us the ceremony text in advance so that we could edit it as we wished. I kept it exactly as she designed it, though, because it was truly beautiful.

The day of the ceremony, Reissa arrived to our early morning ceremony spot early, which was very nice for us. And most importantly, Reissa's words and delivery at our wedding ceremony were incredibly meaningful and beautiful. I admit, she had me in tears in no time :)

Overall, we are so happy that Reissa was not only part of our day, but made our ceremony committing our lives to each other incredibly special and meaningful. We highly recommend Reissa to others looking for an officiant for a large, formal wedding, an intimate elopement or anything in between.

Thank you, Reissa!

Outstanding! Excellent to work with. An easy template to start with and add or subtract from. I especially did not want a religious ceremony and my wife is from Thailand which has its own customs and nuances. So we were married in a Thai restaurant and had the reception there as well about 55 people. Many guests complemented us that it was the most intimate warm wedding they had ever attended. Even the bride's mother said that! We had a rather short ceremony about 15-20 minutes followed by about 30 minutes of photos. All in all the the wedding was 10 times better than I or anyone expected. And everyone cried. And I mean everyone. Reissah is the BEST!

You would never think, initially, when starting to plan your wedding day that an officiant would be so difficult to choose. It was for us! We wanted someone who we could feel comfortable with and someone we could trust to do our ceremony the way we wanted. Reissa was wonderful. I'm talking amazing. She was so professional, warm, & friendly that after we first met her- I said to my then fiancé in the car- "she is exactly who I always imagined our officiant would be". We instantly felt so comfortable with Reissa. She came to the table with experience and suggestions, while totally being open to any custom things we wanted to include, or portions we wanted to take out. She was able to accommodate a knot tying ceremony beautifully for us although she mentioned she hadn't done one before, you would have never known. Many friends and family commented on how beautiful and "perfect" our ceremony was. I couldn't agree more.
She's is just great! Highly recommended from this happy couple!

Reissa was the first person we worked with when planning our wedding. I wish every aspect was as easy as working with her! She was wonderful. She not only provided valuable input and suggestions from her experience, she helped customize the ceremony to make it personal for our special day. Family and friends all commented on how beautiful the ceremony was and we owe most of that to Reissa. We highly recommend her!

Reissah was awesome! She was very professional from beginning to end! She came to my house in all the way in Saugus to meet my spouse and even convinced my spouse to have a sand ceremony! (He is shy and hard to persuade)
At the ceremony she spoke very clear! And my family and friends adored her! A few friends even wanted her buisness cards!
Reissah is very flexable and super attentive! She was simply super!
