Rev. Lou was an amazing person with whom we bonded after meeting briefly a few months prior to our ceremony. Even though we are from Atlanta, he was there each step of the way and guided us to choose the most perfect ceremony for us. He really individualized the celebration and incorporated very personal parts of our lives into the entire process. He was reassuring, calming, but most of all he is a genuine individual that helped make our day perfect and magical. I can't imagine having anyone else! He was simply the Best!

Reverend Britt Hall helped make this day truly remarkable. His presence was calming and his words were eloquent. The process from the beginning was made very simple and I'm grateful to Rev. Hall and Rev. Olivieri. It is very clear that they both make every effort to make sure you are not only happy but that expectations are exceeded.

The level of flexibility, personal input and easiness in preparation of the entire ceremony was unparalleled. Within two months, Father Lou prepared, facilitated and executed our wedding vows. Being from different religious background, his approach to the ceremony made our wedding preparation stress less. Thank you Reverend Lou.

From the moment we met Reverend Lou we knew he would be the one to marry us. We had just had a bad experience with the officiant that we were going to work with and we were pretty timid, not knowing what to expect. He welcomed us into his home and we sat and talked while petting his beautiful dog. (We love animals!) Rev Lou radiates love and spirituality and was so kind and accommodating. He gave us so many options to choose from that we didn't even know existed. I can't tell you how many people came up to us after our beautiful ceremony and complimented us on our officiant. They wanted to know where we found him (our planners) and we were told over and over again that he was AWESOME. When and if we have kids, we will contact Rev Lou. Any occasion that calls for it, he will be there. And I hope my family and friends will work with him as well. It really is the most important part of the wedding and had we gone with the other guy it would have been bad. Ceremonies can sometimes be boring to be honest and there was not one thing boring about this. We included the celtic hand tying tradition to it as well as one of his options. Go with Reverend Lou for your occasion. Do not even think twice about it. I have never seen any one have a ceremony like that. Thank you Rev Lou!!

When we first met Lou, we were very nervous because neither of us is particularly religious, but do maintain a level of spirituality and beliefs based upon our experiences and upbringing.

Right away, Lou made us feel at ease and laid out our options for everything from how religious to make the ceremony down to what we would like him to wear. He provided many readings and passages for us to select, allowing us to essentially choose the majority of what was stated throughout the entire ceremony so it reflected us. In addition, he shared with us some great ideas to make the entire day special, not just the ceremony.

In the end, the actual ceremony was beautiful, very personal and unlike other ceremonies we've seen at our friends' weddings. Lou was wonderful at making us feel at ease just prior to the ceremony and we would highly recommend him!

Lou was really great in helping to make our special day that much more special, stress-free and personal. His low-key but attentive demeanor was what first made it apparent he would be the right person to officiate our wedding ceremony. He has a great sense of humor yet is honest and immediate in a way that makes you feel instantly comfortable talking about your life with this man. Many people offered their compliments to me about Lou long after he had left us to our revelry, saying that the ceremony was beautiful and his words were spoken with sincerity and care.

My bride and I agree, Lou was the right choice.

I would strongly recommend Reverend Louis Olivieri to anyone reading this review.
Reverend Lou did a fantastic job not only at the ceremony, but from the very first time we sat down with him and began constructing our personalized event. Reverend Lou
Made it extremely easy for us and was there for us when ever a question came up.
On our actual wedding day he presented extremely well. Kept everyone relaxed an calm
And was truly part of the family. I 100% recommend bringing Rev Lou into your big day as well.

I was originally going to use the suggested officiant from our venue but then I went online to read the reviews and was less than impressed. I did my own search and found Rev Olivieri who has outstanding 5-star reviews. He is very professional, thorough and most importantly, very punctual. He provided a lot of information and was well organized. On our wedding date, he arrived at the appointed time, well-dressed, and helped us do a dry run of the ceremony. The ceremony was great, there was a lot of positive energy and even my parents commented how our officiant was very good! Don't hesitate to give him a call if you need an officiant!!

One thing that I highly appreciated was the flexibility our officiant had with us on our special day. He was always going based on our time. He always asked what we preferred and that I think that was/is one of his many best assets that made my now husband and I feel so comfortable and happy before and on our wedding day. He performed a very nice ceremony. This was the wedding we were looking forward to....thank you Rev. Louis Olivieri!!!

They say the heart of any wedding is the ceremony. If that is the case, than Reverend Lou and Reverend Britt (who performed our ceremony) made it beat loud enough for all NYC to hear!

Together they brought kindness, soul, laughter, spirituality, professionalism, intimacy and joy to our exchange of vows. For my husband and I, standing in front of our loved ones on an outside terrace, they eloquently infused our love story and strong love for one another, into a ceremony that felt uniquely ours.

Guests afterwards shared comments like: "I've been to tons of weddings and have gotten married but this is the best ceremony I have ever attended"; "It was so beautiful I couldn't stop crying (that was from our photographer!)"; and our favorite- "Your minister captured your love for each other like a fairy tale and made us all share in the magic of your marriage."

Reverend Lou and Reverend Britt, thank you from the bottom of our newlywed hearts. You both are true gifts from God. We are truly grateful we chose you to officiate our wedding.

To all our fellow bride & grooms/ bride & brides/ groom & grooms, reading this message- if you both desire a bespoke ceremony crafted in the image of your unique love story, if you want the heart of your wedding to beat loudly- you search has ended with Minister Lou and Britt.

Best of luck and lots of love to all,
Scott & Mario

Together they brought kindness, soul, laughter, spirituality, professionalism, intimacy and joy to our exchange of vows. For my husband and I, standing in front of our loved ones on an outside terrace, they eloquently infused our love story and strong love for one another, into a ceremony that felt uniquely ours.

Guests afterwards shared comments like: "I've been to tons of weddings and have gotten married but this is the best ceremony I have ever attended"; "It was so beautiful I couldn't stop crying (that was from our photographer!)"; and our favorite- "Your minister captured your love for each other like a fairy tale and made us all share in the magic of your marriage."

Reverend Lou and Reverend Britt, thank you from the bottom of our newlywed hearts. You both are true gifts from God. We are truly grateful we chose you to officiate our wedding.

To all our fellow bride & grooms/ bride & brides/ groom & grooms, reading this message- if you both desire a bespoke ceremony crafted in the image of your unique love story, if you want the heart of your wedding to beat loudly- you search has ended with Minister Lou and Britt.

Best of luck and lots of love to all,
Scott & Mario Read less

My husband arranged for Rev. Louis Olivieri and Rev. Britt Hall to surprise me in Central Park on our first wedding anniversary so we could renew our wedding vows. The entire thing could not have been more perfect. Rev. Louis Olivieri made the ceremony so special and so personal. He was sincere and his delivery was powerful and it was just the right amount of time. His words were beautiful and he really focused on the aspects of love and marriage that are important to us as a couple. He really made that moment in our lives so special and we will never forget him! I could not be more grateful to Rev. Louis Olivieri, he really went above and beyond to make sure it was a huge surprise for me. My husband was delighted to work with him and he was very accommodating with last minute and unscheduled changes in the surprise plan!

Thank you for the beautiful and amazing ceremony!

Reverend Lou preformed our marriage ceremony, which was a wonderful experience. He was more than thoughtful to our requests, that it be a very non-denominational ceremony. It was short and hit the right note in every respect. Having done this in the privacy of our home I could not have asked for a better experience.

Finding the right officiant was the most important thing to me. My (now) husband and I are spiritual but not religious. We have close family members who are LGBT and it was important to me that they would be respected. Reverend Lou was the first person to respond and I immediately knew he was our guy. He is kind, humble, smart, approachable, personal, warm....he made me feel like our service was as important to him as it was for us. Nearly all of my guests pulled me aside to say how great he was. I am so thankful and pleased!

Rev Lou is by far the most amazing Officiant a couple can ask for! He puts a great deal of effort in getting to know you and tailoring the ceremony to make it personal to not only the bride and groom, but to the families as well. Our ceremony was both humorous and touching -- to this day our family and friends are still telling us how much they enjoyed hearing about our journey together during the ceremony. Rev Lou was able to seamlessly intertwine our 12 years into a 30-minute ceremony with such ease and grace. He also has a knack for putting you at ease throughout the entire process but especially the morning of the big day - we knew we were in the right hands! We are forever grateful to have been able to work with Rev Lou in making our day as special as it was!

From the bride:
Our ceremony with Rev. Lou was absolutely perfect and better than we could have imagined. When we first met him he was so down to earth and open about what kind of ceremony we could have, we knew we had to work with him. After learning more about each of us, Lou put together a draft of our ceremony with SO many options. He worked with us to give us what we wanted but still keep the ceremony cohesive and meaningful. Everyone is still raving about how beautiful of a ceremony it was. Even the staff at our venue kept telling us how much they loved Lou. As the venue was setting up our alter, Lou actually recommended how to make it look and his idea was perfect -- it was obvious he understood our vision and style for the day. For me, our ceremony was easy, calm, and fun. I couldn't have asked for anything more.

From the groom:
Rev. Lou was an amazing officiant! He was incredibly easy to work with. He was genuinely interested in getting to know us and tailored the ceremony to match our personalities. On the wedding day he arrived early and made sure everyone knew what they had to do. I've lost count of how many people complimented us on Lou and the ceremony. In what can be a stressful process and day, he was always a calming presence. Rev. Lou was absolutely the right choice!

My Partner and I of 11 years had decided once The Supreme Court struck down section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) last year that we would finally make our union legal. Unfortunately at the same time we were dealing with a serious health condition that thankfully, is currently in remission, so waiting for the state of Georgia to follow suite was not a prudent option. Rev. Lou was helpful in many aspects of how we could accomplish our goal of marriage in the course of a weekend and was very flexible with his time to accommodate us the following day. The service was beautiful and you could tell he spent some time to personalize the ceremony. I would highly recommend Rev. Lou.

Lou was the officiant for our wedding on April 4, 2014 at Battery Gardens in Lower Manhattan. From the day we first met Lou we knew that he was someone special and that he was the only officiant we needed to meet with to make our decision. He was receptive to all of our special requests and helped in every way possible in preparing the service. He initially sent us a script with several different options of readings, sequences, how the vows would be done, and extras that we may want. He is very knowledgeable with the process and we were very happy with the finished product. On the day of the wedding Lou worked well with everyone in the ceremony (groomsmen, bridesmaids, readers, wedding planner, and of course bride and groom) in making last minute changes and preparations. Overall he is a minister true to the spirituality of a wedding yet very down to earth to help you feel as though your ceremony is as much yours and your family's as it is a religious and spiritual celebration.

He performed a beautiful ceremony and the "sand ceremony", which he suggested, turned out wonderfully. He made sure that both of us were well prepared and knew exactly what to expect, which helped make us both feel at ease. Lou made a very special day turn out exactly as we planned and I am so glad that with Lou's help, such a wonderful day turned out to be a perfect ever lasting memory.

Rev Lou provided us with several readings to select from prior to our ceremony for one of our close friends to read that really captured who we are and our relationship. Although we only spoke to him a few times on the phone and briefly before the ceremony it was as if we knew him and he knew us for a long time and he captured so many attributes of our relationship within his words during the ceremony. I would highly recommend Rev. Lou to everyone.

Olivieri came highly recommended to us by friends who also had him officiate their wedding. Upon speaking with him, we knew he was going to be the right fit for us. Rev. Olivieri is a very warm, open and supportive. He makes you feel as though you've known him all your life. The readings he used for our ceremony we're perfect and without even knowing, they fit and flowed perfectly with the commitment ceremony we had years before, almost as if he had been there himself. He made our day perfect. We will forever look back on our short time with him with fondness and warm hearts. He was a big piece to our perfect day. We are forever thankful.

Lou was an incredibly calming presence the day-of, and was generous, gracious and easy to communicate with prior to the wedding. We heard from so many people that it was one of the best ceremonies they had ever heard. He respected our secular beliefs and really incorporated our details in such beautiful ways. Thank you again, Lou! Can't recommend you more highly.

Our ceremony was immediately before the wedding reception so we wanted to make sure that it was meaningful and concise but not rushed.

To do this Lou was both extremely professional and comfortably personal throughout the entire planning process. He helped us prepare ceremony scripts that he, myself and my wife reviewed together with him prior to our wedding day. We decided not to write our own vows so we were worried that the ceremony would be too generic, but what he helped us create really brought out the best parts of our relationship in words.

Overall he was excellent on the day-of officiating and we had a bunch of positive commentary from our guests both during the cocktail hour and after the wedding.

We highly recommend him!

Rev. Lou made our wedding a wonderful and spiritual event for which we are eternally grateful.
We live in Texas and were working to plan a destination wedding in New York. After reviewing several web sites for a minister we settled in on Lou as his style and nature seemed to fit well with our lives and relationship. Since we were planning everything remotely, he went above and beyond to help us find a beautiful church venue that was the perfect setting for our wedding before God and our friends. Lou also exceeded our expectations on getting to know us personally leading up to the ceremony. He planned several conference calls whereby we could discuss our life experiences and expectations for the wedding ceremony. These calls allowed for us to have a personal connection with Lou and made for a ceremony that was both meaningful and personal.

When we arrived in New York, our wedding planner had an emergency and Lou stepped in to help us with the last minute details of obtaining the marriage license. This was much appreciated not only by us but our wedding planner as well. Lastly, at the ceremony itself, because we had developed a personal friendship with Lou, he was able to keep us calm and knew when to pause to allow us to keep our composure during what was a very emotional and meaningful ceremony for us both.

Therefore, we are happy to provide a hearty recommendation for Rev. Lou Olivieri.

Rev. Lou was a joy to work with and made our ceremony truly personalized and special for us. From the first meeting, he inspired confidence in his ability to put together a seamless event. I would strongly recommend Lou to anyone who is looking for a reliable, genuinely warm and experienced officiant for their wedding.

We are a couple of Montrealers that eloped in NYC! Rev Lou was WONDERFUL! He answered our request promptly, offered suggestions on where to have the ceremony and even gave us all the legal info that we needed to know before getting married. Most communication was done via email but he always made the effort to call and make himself available on his cell, which is very comforting for out of towners. Extremely organized, professional, punctual and friendly. We asked for some religious aspects to be included in the ceremony and that was no problem for Lou. Our elopement was mid-Dec at the Ladies Pavilion. Lou was there on time and very presentable. We wish we could do it again just to get more pictures with him!

If you are looking for an officiant, with class and style, Lou is your man! What a wonderful experience he made for us. Thank you so much Lou!

My long time partner and I were married in NYC this past December. We had a formal commitment ceremony/wedding a few years before but when we got married "on paper" in NY we were fortunate enough to find Reverend Lou to preside over our relatively brief ceremony. Everything was perfect and he was so helpful. He took the time to get to know us and helped us select the perfect place in New York. It ended up being a snowy day...which made it all the more perfect in Central Park…and he was flexible and accommodating. More important was how warm and supportive he was. Even though our paths crossed for only a brief period, it was one of the most important and meaningful "brief periods" of our life, and so every time we think of our day we will think of Lou and how much his words and blessing meant to us!

Our flash mob wedding took place on December 7, 2013. We were celebrating our milestone birthdays, 60, 50 & 21, when we thought it would be a grand surprise to our family and friends if we took this opportunity to get married. A friend of the family was going to preside over the ceremony in the middle of the party or so we thought until he called and canceled unexpectedly. With three weeks to go anxiety struck big time. To our good fortune, we found Rev. Lou Olivieri. He not only helped soothe our anxiety he guided us through every step of the way. Rev. Lou even arranged his schedule to accommodate us as he had another wedding to perform earlier in the day before ours. The day of the party arrived, family and friends ate and drank to help celebrate the three birthdays and Tom got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. When Tom asked if there was a reverend in the house, Rev. Lou came on down like the Lone Ranger! It was a beautiful service that was just perfectly suited to us and made our day just as we had imagined.

My husband and I are indebted to Reverend Louis Olivieri who officiated our wedding on 11/16/2013. I was going to type “who married us” but he would remind me that we married each other, not him. Although our wedding day was the first time we met him – it was a destination wedding – he managed to personalize our service based on only a few conference calls and emails. He sent us drafts of scripts that we could tweak well in advance, so we knew most of what to expect before we met him on the wedding day. Before guests arrived, he walked us through the details of the service and calmed our – okay, my – nerves. He took me aside after we signed the license and said “look at me and breathe”. During the service, we chuckled a few times, an indication that the 3 of us standing there had inside jokes which is remarkable for the limited time we spent with him. He is the type of person that you seem to have known forever – someone with whom you want to keep in touch and even after years, seems like no time has passed.

The only bad thing about our wedding? Reverend Louis had another appointment and had to leave our reception early. Before he left, he thanked us for the honor of officiating our wedding. We are the ones who are truly honored and blessed. We could not have asked for a better person to guide us through the most important day of our lives.

Reverend Lou was amazing! Carol and I traveled from Virginia to get married in NYC. She grew up in NJ and I in CT. NYC, particularly Brooklyn is a very special place for us. We originally wanted to be on the Brooklyn bridge but was unable to. Lou was so flexible in meeting our requests. He made excellent suggestions and was very knowledgeable of the area and their conditions like construction and accessibility. The back drop of manhattan was breath taking and the bridge was a perfect symbol that our marriage will bridge all that life will offer us, forever taking us to beautiful places. "Lou, we will call you to celebrate our first anniversary! Bring your dogs to, our pets can meet and build on our friendship."

Lou is family to us now and we recommend him for any event or occasion.

Thank you Lou for making our special day spectacular!! Alvaro and Carol

Nothing but praise for this man! From the first meeting my now wife and I had with him, he made us feel like we were family already. He leaves nothing for chance, everything is discussed before going into the ceremony so there are no surprises. Every word during the ceremony was what we wanted said. During the ceremony, he was quick to react to anything situational and even had the crowd laughing at points. Would highly recommend him for your event, you will not be dissappointed. Thanks again Lou, my family loved the ceremony!

Rev. Lou was amazing. He created the most heartfelt, spiritual and loving wedding ceremony for us. He was very efficient and made sure we were well prepared for the event. He put us at ease the day of the wedding by showing up early to check in on us and sharing wonderful words of encouragement. He took the time to get to know us as a couple and that really made for a wonderful, personal ceremony. During the ceremony, Rev. Lou clearly shared in our love and joy! I really felt that he became part of the "family." I was originally just looking for someone to "officiate" our wedding and I was lucky to find a spiritual, kind man who made it come to life. I would HIGHLY recommend Reverend Lou no matter what kind of event you want to create.

Rev. Louis Olivieri was great to work with because he really did want to get to know my wife and I before he married us. As the groom I needed a lot of coaching and calming down, and Rev. Lou was great at helping me through the day when I was so on edge. My ability to write my own vows needed some help also and Rev. Lou was there via email also, I couldn't have put my words together without him. We just got back some of the pictures with him in them full of big smiles because he really was happy for us! I highly recommend Rev. Lou as an officiant!

Working with Reverend Lou to create our same-sex, interfaith wedding ceremony was a joy and a blessing. He is attentive, thoughtful and calm. From our first teleconference to subsequent meetings and finally the actual ceremony, Rev. Lou partnered with us to create an individualized, beautiful ceremony that reflected who we are and what we believe. Our guests have described the ceremony as impactful and we feel the same. One of the most exceptional elements of the ceremony was how Rev. Lou placed us in front of our guests. Rather than standing with our backs to the guests, or looking only at each other, he placed us at a slight angle to each other and the guests. This gave us a view of everyone, and everyone could us our expressions! It was an incredible feeling of inclusion – like a giant hug! We would highly recommend Rev. Lou for your officiant needs.

The decision to have Rev. Louis Olivieri officiate at our wedding was one of the easiest ones we had to make, regarding vendors. From our first meeting with him, he made us feel instantly at ease. He was so easy to talk to! He wanted to know all about us as a couple, how we met, what are interests were... And more importantly, what we envisioned our ceremony to be. Every couple is different. And so every ceremony should be different to reflect that couple. We met with the Rev. a few times to discuss what we wanted for our ceremony, and he even gave us questionnaires to fill out independently of each other so he could really get an idea of who we were and what was important to each of us. Our ceremony was beautiful! Exactly what we wanted. Our guests all told us what a beautiful ceremony it was and how it was "so us"... He also took care of mailing out the marriage license for us and our marriage certificate was in the mail when we got from our honeymoon! I'm so happy that we chose Rev. Lou to help us celebrate our very special day. I would absolutely recommend his services to anyone looking for a wedding officiant. He's very down-to-earth, reliable, funny, and his fee was more than reasonable! I will be keeping his contact information for any of my friends/family members that may be looking for an officiant in the future.

Lou was EVERYTHING we could have hoped for and more. We have not stopped hearing compliments and raves about how amazing our wedding ceremony was. As this was the first year our group of friends has started to get married, our wedding was the 7th of 7 that we had this year, and all of the other couples who were married prior to us came up to us at the reception to rave about how intimate, romantic and special our ceremony was. We had an incident with an ill bridesmaid passing out during the ceremony and Lou did not miss a beat - he acknowledged the situation, made sure it was addressed, and went right back to his beautiful words, which helped the ceremony to flow seamlessly and to not take attention off or our union, once he knew all was well and OK. As the groom, I did not know what to expect from an interfaith ceremony,,we are not a overly religious couple and I personally was weary of a long , boring ceremony (as I have been to many), Once my now wife discovered Lou, we met with him right away and I KNEW he was the man who should marry us - between his charm, his sense of humor, his professionalism and his true caring for us as a couple - he was the ultimate wedding officiant. My wife had a moment of sentimentalism during the ceremony and in her midst of crying, Lou slickly whipped out a tissue and handed it to her without missing a word or even looking away from his very captive audience. To me, the fact that we have had SO many compliments about Lou's service from men in our family, says a lot. Everyone admired and enjoyed his charm, his wit, and his truly special, captivating, moving ceremony. Of all of the things we had to choose for our wedding, Lou was the best decision made. He made our wedding day so special, so moving, and truly unforgettable. Quite simply - Lou is the man!!

Rev. Lou made our wedding day so special.

Rev. Lou was an absolute pleasure to work with. From our initial meeting months before the wedding, to the moment my new husband and I had our first kiss as a married couple, Lou was one of our biggest cheerleaders and supporters. He was able to keep our anxiety down before the big moment/ceremony, and we greatly appreciated that. All of our guests had wonderful things to say about him, about how friendly and relateable he was. Not only were his words during the ceremony made of true love and happiness, he brought much needed humor to keep us relaxed. I would highly recommend Rev. Lou for an easy yet brilliant service. Thank you Lou for all that you did, especially taking the arm of Celio's mother as she exited the ceremony. Shine bright always!

There was no limit to the number of revisions we needed (though we didn't need more than a few) and we were able to add in our special touches. Many people told us afterwards that they thought he did a fantastic job.

Rev. Lou was amazing. We were looking for an officiant that would set the tone and help our wedding run as smoothly as possible and we got that and so much more. My wife and I are beyond excited to have picked Lou as he was a true professional and paid attention to detail. His script that he wrote for our ceremony was able to capture us perfectly and in a personal manner.

On the wedding day he arrived nice and early, hung out with me and my groomsmen while my bride was getting dressed. After our 'first look' photos we signed the paperwork and did a quick rehearsal. Lou made all this completely stress free. The ceremony reading was great, displaying our love together through words with some laughs inbetween. Thank you Lou for being apart of our special day!

Since the first time i spoke to reverend Lou, I knew i wanted this man to officiate my wedding. Little did i know the value of what he would bring. Although the cost may seem high at first, the reality is i couldn't speak higher of the hole experience including the ceremony itself. The truth is, you can not put a dollar amount to perfection especially on your wedding. the simple fact that Lou gave us the ability to script our own wedding made the ceremony more memorable for both my wife and i. In the end days after the wedding im still getting compliments on how beautiful the ceremony was.

Lou thank you for making this process more fun and memorable then i couldve imagined

My bride and I are of mixed culture. I am American of no religious affiliation while she is Burmese and Buddist. Rev. Lou was able to help us settle on ceremony vows that satisfied her religious background without the potential for offending anyone of other religions within the two families. He offered many options that made it easy for us to pare down his provided documents to a final draft. He speaks clearly and calmly even when in the sun on a very hot morning in July. He was there when we needed him and responded quickly to questions.

Of all of the people we could have chosen to officiate our wedding, Rev. Louis Olivieri was by far the best choice we could have made. In just a six month period of time of working with Rev. Olivieri, he was able to really understand us, both as individuals as well as a couple. During our time working together, Rev Olivieri was very patient, kind, and gracious. He translated our relationship dynamic into poetry. We could not have asked for a more thorough, supportive, and compassionate person to bind our union.

He really brought the spirit of marriage to life.

First things first, we have to give a standing ovation, round of applause for Rev. Lou! About a month before our wedding, my wife and I ran into a unique situation; the person that we had been working with to officiate our wedding and assist with coordinating the plans became completely unreachable. I frantically searched the internet, made phone calls, and became mortified that all of the plans we had made over the last year would have to change. Then, I came across Rev. Lou online and decided to give him a call. He answered right away! I told him what had happened and that we were only a few weeks away from the wedding. He single handedly created a serene level of comfort and I knew he was the one for us. Since we reside in Ohio, all of our interaction was on the phone and through email until the actual day of the wedding, when we met him in person for the first time. I was amazed at his ability to work virtually with us and build such a well understood relationship. We were thoroughly impressed by everything about Rev. Lou. His genuine rapport, ability to design a ceremony that suited us perfectly, professional expertise, and inclusive, tranquil personality made such a positive imprint on us. Since we had to reconstruct our plans for the day, he also had many professional recommendations for other services that we would need which was a huge help! My wife and I strongly recommend Rev. Lou and are so pleased with the service and friendship that he provided to us during one of the most important milestones in our life!

Reverend Lou worked with my husband and I to create exactly the ceremony we envisioned to have. He was a pleasure to meet with in person, and always responsive in any questions we had or emails that we sent. I will never forget calling Lou a few days before our wedding, sounding quite stressed, and Lou calming my fears and concerns, telling me everything was going to be perfect-- and it was! We had a gorgeous beach ceremony, and even though our guests were sitting under the hot sun for the entire time, I can't begin to tell you how many compliments we received about our wedding ceremony -- from the acknowledgement of our guests who traveled far, to taking a moment to remember those who were not with us, to exchanging our wedding vows, to the unique and meaningful sand ceremony, the beautiful little details were endless! I had a strong vision for the type of person who I wanted to marry us, and the kind of ceremony we would have for our wedding. Reverend Lou did not disappoint! Rather, he brought his own style in while giving me his professional and personal opinions on what he thought would work best and why. Everyone loved the ceremony, especially me and my husband! So many people were impressed, I was asked many times where and how I found Reverend Lou. It was meant to be! Thank you so much Lou! I highly recommend you to any couple who wants to have a beautiful ceremony, rich in words, modern, tasteful, where guests can truly feel moved after experiencing it and sharing it together.

We had a small ceremony of about 60 people - all of them have been touched by our ceremony, and even the man teared a bit during the ceremony. I don't think that we would have been able to create this unforgettable moment without him! Thanks so much Lou!!!

In summary it was a wonderful experience. We had an initial meeting with Lou to go over our thoughts regarding the wedding, and got to know eachother well. A month or so before the wedding, Lou sent us a draft of the ceremony script which incorporated a lot of the personal stuff that he learned from our meeting. Rev. Lou was also very patient in working with my husband and I to finalize the draft, and had a lot of ideas and suggestions for us. For the actual ceremony, Rev. Lou was great, very well spoken and engaging. The script was personalized to my husand and I, and Rev. Lou delivered the speech perfectly! I would recommend Rev. Lou to anyone!!!

Rev. Lou was EXTRAORDINARY !! We simply could not have imagined a more beautiful ceremony. It was filled with love and peace, and the words Lou spoke went to the deepest parts of our souls... Lou could not have created a more perfect ceremony for the two of us. Afterwards, everyone raved about the ceremony and Lou, and several went as far to say it was the most meaningful and special wedding they had ever attended. We certainly could not have agreed more!!! The wonder is also that we emailed and spoke on the phone with Lou, but were not blessed to meet him until the day of our wedding because we live out of state. It was as if he had known us intimately our entire lives, as he nailed the ceremony and us perfectly. We will never forget our wedding... and we have Lou to thank for making it the most precious day of our lives. We LOVE him !!!

My husband and I found ourselves without an officiant at the last minute, and two weeks before our wedding we called Reverend Louis to see if he happened to be free that day and willing to work with us. He worked quickly and efficiently to make sure we had a ceremony that reflected us personally, and was open to any notes and preferences we had. His ideas and suggestions were wonderful and he made this process so easy and seamless for us. Our ceremony was even better than we envisioned, and Louis was such a comforting and calming presence on the day of the wedding. We could not be happier with how things turned out, and our guests are continuing to tell us what a wonderful, personal and unique ceremony we had. Louis is very passionate about what he does, and it really shows in his work. He was a pleasure to work with and really enhanced our wedding day.

Rev. Lou is amazing! Just from e-mailing, we could tell he was a very genuine person. On the day we met Rev. Lou in person, we felt an immediate connection! We sat down and told him many things about us including how we envision our wedding day. By the end of our meeting, we felt like we had all known each other for years! My fiancé & I turned to each other and gave a little nod, indicating that we both LOVED Rev. Lou and there was no doubt that we wanted him to officiate our wedding. We even wrote him a check on the spot to confirm his services! We left that meeting with so much joy in making a connection that would impact our wedding day, our family & friends, and the rest of our lives as we sincerely consider Rev. Lou our friend.

The process of creating our wedding day ceremony was extremely thorough and very easy. Rev. Lou asked us to put our trust in him to create a beautiful ceremony - he would take care of everything so that we could focus on the rest of our planning & each other. Rev. Lou has amazing suggestions and easily came up with readings & powerful words to really relate to who we are individually, who we are as a couple, and what we will be moving forward.

Our wedding day was PERFECT and the ceremony was the beginning of our perfect day. Rev. Lou is handsome, professional, warm, comforting, genuine, etc. etc. etc.! He helped make us feel at ease on our wedding day, introduced himself to our bridal party and parents, and really stepped up to officiate the ceremony (and leading up to the ceremony on our wedding day).

Our friends & family continue to rave about our ceremony AND about Rev. Lou! They loved the ceremony, the readings, and the words that Rev. Lou shared with our guests.

We highly recommend Rev. Lou as your wedding day officiant. Not only will you have a memorable ceremony comprised of everything you've ever dreamed out, but you will make a sweet & genuine dear friend in an amazing man!

I want to start this review by sharing two comments we received from attendees of our wedding because should you not make it passed this first paragraph, you'll know everything you need to know. The first compliment we received was from a close friend (who is such a close friend, he was one of our groomsman). He commented to us that he could really see us as a couple in the ceremony performed by Rev. Lou. He even asked if we wrote parts of the ceremony ourselves (we didn't). Another compliment we received was from my husband's uncle who said he could literally feel our love for each other throughout our entire ceremony... If that's not enough to help you make your choice, feel free to keep reading.

My husband and I come from different religious backgrounds, with his family being more religious than mine. We knew immediately upon meeting Rev. Lou that he would be able to help us to create a perfectly balanced ceremony. The whole process outlined by Rev. Lou was easy and convenient. My husband and I got married in Montauk however we were able to meet with Rev. Lou in NYC (where we live) for our meetings.

Rev. Lou had us complete a questionnaire about our relationship and one another. We were able to complete it on our own schedule with no pressure.

The day of our wedding Rev. Lou arrived early and was such a calming presence for both my husband and me leading up to the ceremony (for my bridesmaids too!).

The ceremony was beautiful and personal. I don't use the word "perfect" lightly but our ceremony performed by Rev. Lou was perfect.

Many of my guests commented on how wonderful the ceremony was. By the end, Lou felt more like an old family friend than just a minister. I would recommened him 100% to anyone.

Finding an officiant was difficult for us because of our different faiths. Rev Lou Olivieri recognized that immediately and made us very comfortable. During the initial meeting, he asked us about our lives, relationship and desires and through this conversation we discovered what we wanted to accomplish; a warm, friendly and familiar ceremony that paid homage to our beliefs while being respectful to our families' beliefs. Rev Lou provided us with a draft ceremony consisting of many options to choose from for readings, intentions, vows and rituals. After going back and forth a few times we settled on a version that was perfect and that made our ceremony perfect. Rev Lou was cheerful, charming and caring and made everyone feel as though he knew us well. We are very happy to have Rev Lou Olivieri's name on our marriage license!

When it came to choosing an officiant for our wedding, we were very particular. Like many young couples, we wanted our wedding to be the way we wanted it to be, but also please our parents and others involved. Rev Lou was not only extremely professional and flexible, but he also has a great reassuring effect on everyone, which went a long way in helping everyone involved feel like they were in good hands and getting what they wanted. He allowed me to basically completely write the ceremony and delivered it in such a great way that everyone I've spoken to has told me the ceremony was the nicest they've ever been to.

Rev Lou's best quality is that he has his belief systems and they come out in a very nice way through his warmth and personality, but he respects yours and your day. He in no way tried to make his own belief system a part of our day, allowed us to craft a ceremony that meant something to us and our beliefs but delivered it with the same thought and care as though they were his own.

I couldn't recommend him any more highly. Thank you Rev Lou!

As the Mother of the Bride, and raised a Roman Catholic (having had 12 years of Catholic school), I was very concerned when my daughter and then future son-in-law shared with me that their wish was to have a non secular wedding! At first I felt a loss and eventually I had to accept that this was their wish and I had to give up what was my preference as this was their day. I did insist on meeting Rev Lou as I wanted to know who the person was that was going to marry my children. Just after speaking with Rev Lou, I already could "hear" that I liked him, that he was real and understood life and the seriousness of the decision to marry etc. Once I met Rev Lou, it confirmed all that I hoped was so, he was confident, understood my children, agreed to give them "homework" that would make them think about and work at the ceremony of their wedding day etc. Rev Lou guided them. My children delivered a most beautiful ceremony that touched, moved and inspired everyone present. Rev Lou officiated a genuine, touching and warm ceremony. We already recommended Rev Lou to a family/work colleague who will be getting married in the Fall. And we hope to stay in touch with him throughout the years.

As soon as we met Lou, we knew immediately that we would be honored to work with him. He has a cheerful, very personable and positive aura that puts us at peace during a stressful planning period. I specifically remembered that, on the day-of the wedding when the last hour was the most stressful, Lou looked at me and told me to just look at him and breath if I get up to the alter and get nervous. That made all the difference. His presence made everything come together at our ceremony. Lou is terrific to work, and we will definitely recommend him to all our friends.

He totally customized our ceremony to tailor us and a lot of our guests came up to me afterwards asking about him and complimenting me on how unique and meaningful the ceremony was. I also liked his process. He wrote a draft of the ceremony and had us choose passages that we prefer. I asked him to take away some and add certain things and this went on for a few emails until we all collectively came up with the perfect words to say. We were very happy with hiring Rev Lou and you will to!!

He was able to fulfill their unique requests during each of the wonderfully touching ceremonies. We received many accolades about his approach from all of our family and friends in attendance at each wedding. We certainly will recommend Lou to any friend or family member in need of his services. He was personable, professional, caring and so much more during each of our very special occasions.

I feel so fortunate and blessed to have had Lou as our officiant. Luckily he was available for our fairly last minute wedding. Even though we contacted him just a month in advance of our special day, he still took the time to make sure that we had the ceremony that we envisioned and ensured that our ceremony was the sacred act that it ought to be. Lou was very helpful in accommodating our desire to have a partially bilingual ceremony to honor my husband's roots. While I was the main point of contact, Lou made sure that my husband felt comfortable and included in all aspects of the ceremony. Guests continue to rave about how beautiful the ceremony was, what wonderful energy imbued the vows and how the words chosen really reached their hearts. It is so clear the Lou absolutely LOVES what he does. It is a very unique experience to work with someone who clearly has a special gift for what they do.

While I was the main point of contact, Lou made sure that my husband felt comfortable and included in all aspects of the ceremony. Guests continue to rave about how beautiful the ceremony was, what wonderful energy imbued the vows and how the words chosen really reached their hearts. It is so clear the Lou absolutely LOVES what he does. It is a very unique experience to work with someone who clearly has a special gift for what they do. Read less

From the moment we met Rev Lou, we knew he was right for our wedding. He made us feel comfortable, got to know us, asked questions and truly listened to our wishes and desires for our ceremony. We talked for a couple hours in just our first meeting. We felt so relieved and actually excited.

He was just a blessing on the actual day of the wedding. He gave us gentle guidance and reassurance when we felt overwhelmed; he was a calming presence for us.

The service he developed for us was perfect; everything we could have asked for. Everyone I wound up speaking to after the wedding commented on how beautiful and fitting the service was. It was very touching, a touch of humor thrown in (which we loved) and very honest and true to us as a couple. I'm so happy we found him.

The Rev. Lou was simply amazing. He was able to accommodate our elopement in Central Park yesterday and provided a perfect ceremony. He even had a friend stake out the perfect spot in the park for us and to hold our spot clear of tourists. :-D

His fee for our elopement was extremely reasonable (60% less than all of the other officiants we spoke to). He handled all the paperwork for us after the ceremony and was very supportive and responsive every step of the way. He always responded to our emails and questions very promptly.

We are not religious, rather secular humanists, and the Rev. crafted a ceremony about our love for one another, rather than any deity. It was perfect for us: beautiful, meaningful, and very elegant. We only asked him to do something short and sweet to make it legal, and he gave us a ceremony that honored our love and made our day very, very special.

I checked to make sure that he was actually registered as an officiant with the city of new york. I am very detail-oriented and a bit paranoid. I had heard horror stories of people getting married and then learning that their officiant wasn't actually registered. Plus, I hadn't heard of the interfaith ministry before. I was concerned that we would get married but it wouldn't be official. I can verify now the Rev. Lou is in fact a registered officiant in NYC and your wedding with him will be official.

We found the Reverend to be a very understanding, caring individual who is willing to work with our particular needs. My husband and I only spoke to him once prior to the ceremony - mostly we just emailed him. Yet, he was still able to create a ceremony that felt like it was just for us. I really can't say how lucky we felt to find someone so great. I got the feeling that had we required more meetings or a more specialized ceremony, he would have been very accommodating. We were so grateful to him and would totally recommend him to friends.

Rev. Lou was amazing! We were looking for someone who really "got us", someone who could convey who we are and the love that we share. Rev. Lou did that and MORE! Our ceremony was beautiful, carefully planned, unique, personalized and all that we dreamed it could be! Lou took the time to get to know Mike and I and "our story". When he sent us the first copy of the ceremony he wrote I literally cried at how perfect it was for us! The day of our wedding was even better, Lou literally had everyone captivated with his presence and his words. I can not tell you how many of our guests raved about the ceremony. I had MEN telling me that "they usually never pay attention during a wedding ceremony BUT our ceremony was so interesting and they loved every minute of it and listened to every word that was said!". I can not say enough about Lou as a person and as a professional. We are all here for a reason, a higher calling, a purpose......THIS IS Lou's life's calling. He was meant to do this work and you will FEEL that the moment you start working with him! Simply amazing! We were blessed to have found him!

When we met with Rev Lou we knew that he would do that that and more. He took a lot of time to get to know us and it clearly showed in his beautifully written and executed script. He was professional, very responsive to our many, many emails and spent a lot of time personalizing and hand crafting our ceremony. And most importantly, not only was he a pleasure to work with, but he is truly a wonderful person and has a great spiritual presence - someone who makes you feel comfortable and in good hands. Thanks to Rev Lou for helping to make our wedding night so special!

Our ceremony was so great thanks to Rev. Louis Olivieri! He showed up very early, took care of all the paperwork beforehand and put together the most beautiful ceremony script. He really tried to get to know us as much as he could and become a true friend. He listened to all our ideas and concerns, as we wanted a non-religious ceremony, and the result was simply wonderful. The whole ceremony ran flawlessly and all our guests commented on how beautiful it was. We couldn't be happier with our officiant choice and recommend Rev. Louis Olivieri to everyone!

Rev. Lou was our officiant for our recent wedding in Montauk, NY. He worked with us to craft the perfect ceremony, just the right amount of spirituality, philosophy, and plain truth to capture our beliefs and emotions surrounding our wedding. Also, and this cannot be overstated, he is a tremendously calming presence; an extremely useful trait when you are trying to stop crying in the middle of saying your vows. Overall, I would recommend Rev. Lou to anyone looking to put together their own, uniquely touching ceremony for their wedding.

Louis,

Veronica and I can't thank you enough.. for the words you spoke and for making it so special with your sincerity.

You are honest, and made us feel like we had known you forever! However what is more striking is how in such a short time of knowing you, you had become such a big part of our celebration.

You get involved and 'feel' as much as we do without imposing or "over doing it".

As you say "It is not I, but the Spirit within that does work"... Louis, you really live up to this great testisment. And, furthermore, somehow when you speak you make the words belong to us and fit not from the page, but from the heart.

You truly have a gift. It was a blessing to have met you and to have had you be the one to marry Veronica and I.

We could not have asked for a better Reverend than you Louis. Thank you with all our hearts.

My husband and I were so pleased that we had found Lou and asked him to be the officiant for our wedding ceremony. We really connected with him the first time we met, and he really seemed to understand who we are as individuals and as a couple. That came through in our ceremony. What I liked most about Lou was that he picked up the humor we share as a couple, so he approached our ceremony in a way that created some laughs among us and the guests. Many of our guests commented on how great of a job he did, and even asked for his information.

Rev Lou was a pleasure to work with. My wife and I were seeking a custom personal interfaith service for our wedding. We enjoyed being guided through the process of creating and writing a ceremony that was unique and heartfelt to us and our family with Rev Lou. Although after our initial meeting we didn't speak directly with Lou, we knew he was always available to us. He was always prompt to respond via email with reminders, ideas, and confirmations, in short he left no stone unturned. Due to an unforeseen circumstance during our wedding my wife and I were not able to do a planned walk through/rehearsal with Lou and the Glen Island staff prior to our service. Rev. Lou was completely calm and unfazed with this development, helped keep everyone calm and focused on enjoying our moment. He carried out the service without a hitch. We have received many positive complements about our service from our friends an family in attendance. He also handled the entire administrative duties with our marriage license in a professional prompt manner, our license was waiting for us in the mail when we arrived back from our honeymoon. We both highly recommend his services to anyone in search of a wedding officiant.

Lou was completely calm and unfazed with this development, helped keep everyone calm and focused on enjoying our moment. He carried out the service without a hitch. We have received many positive complements about our service from our friends an family in attendance. He also handled the entire administrative duties with our marriage license in a professional prompt manner, our license was waiting for us in the mail when we arrived back from our honeymoon. We both highly recommend his services to anyone in search of a wedding officiant. Read less

Rev. Lou was very professional and good to work with. He wrote a lovely ceremony for us and made suggestions and recommendations while also taking our feedback and thoughts in a collaborative process. He was absolutely great on the day-of, and he's an excellent speaker. The more weddings I go to, the more I realize how great Lou is. He truly treats your day as being special and sacred, without being cheesy and over the top. He took care of filing our marriage license for us, and the certificate was waiting for us when we got back from our honeymoon.

My husband and I didn't immediately selecte a minister to officiate our ceremony, but Rev. Lou was available on our wedding date. So you might say we lucked out! He gave us timely feedback and responses to our emails, and had such a warm and welcoming personality when we met him in person. We wanted to incorporate some Filipino traditions into our ceremony, which Rev. Lou had not performed before. He was on board with our vision for the ceremony. Our wedding was PERFECT, marked by beatiful words spoken by Rev. Lou that reflected the relationship between my husband and I. He was meticulous and had even sent us 1st, 2nd and final drafts of our wedding ceremony script, allowing us to select readings and choose our readers, as well as make any necessary changes. But little had to be changed; he did a fantastic job! We highly recommend him for anyone who wants to have a personalized ceremony for a good price.

We hired Rev Lou as the officiant for our May 2014 wedding at The Woodlands. During our cocktail hour, our guests were coming up to us and telling us that our ceremony was one of the BEST ceremonies they had ever been too. We are out of state, so we had an initial phone conversation with Rev. Lou, after which we decided to hire him, and only had one in person meeting. The rest of our planning was done via e-mail and phone. Rev. Lou had some great ideas for our ceremony and things we could incorporate into our ceremony that would make it unique and set it apart from the many other wedding ceremonies we have attended over the past few years. He did such a fantastic job of really personalizing our ceremony and incorporating anecdotes of our lives into the script. We would definitely recommend Rev Lou if you are looking for a personalized ceremony that really speaks to who you and your significant other are as a couple. Thanks Rev. Lour for helping to make our wedding day so perfect!

Groom agrees!

Working with Lou as the officiant for our wedding was a lovely experience from start to finish. Lou is so easy to work with, and really understood our needs. Lou listened so closely to our wishes, and took careful note of what we told him about our families, and used all of the information to create the most perfect and fitting ceremony. My husband and I come from different religious backgrounds, and we wanted to incorporate a number of both Catholic and Jewish traditions, to honor both of our families. Our families could not have been more thrilled and pleased with the end result. All of our guests found the ceremony so touching and personal, as it was a great balance of different ideas, and reflected so well on both my husband and myself. We received so many compliments! It didn't hurt that Lou has a great sense of humor, and through in a few laughs, for a light hearted and easy going touch. Our four grandmothers (the guests we were most concerned about pleasing) were over the moon, and so happy with the ceremony! Thank you Lou!
