"The ceremony is the cake... and the reception is the icing. If the cake is not right the icing isn't as good." Rev Lorelei

Rev. Ed and I, Rev. Lorelei, are two old married folks who believe in the union of marriage and know that it can last. After 38 years we know it takes hard work and commitment to have a marriage that stands the test of time. Our advice? Never give up...Never give in...Never get over each other! You love each other for all your flaws and weakness, all your talents and strengths. You allow each other to grow and become! It really is that simple and that hard!

We have been performing wedding ceremonies for over 20 years. Each one we participate in, is personal and important to us! We want your ceremony to stand alone and be the foundation of your life as a married couple. Simply put, we create one of kind, powerful ceremonies, never scripted, or read from a book. We create Love Story Memories.

Every Love Story Ceremony we create is custom and designed from your romance. Our goal is to have everyone at your ceremony fall in love again through your story! No two are ever the same and no one will never forget it. For this reason we do not deliver cookie cutter ceremonies, read from a script or prepared text.

Out of our pure love for the work, we custom design your ceremony, with joy, laughter and tears Like a fine piece of art it takes time and a creative eye. Let us create the perfect Love Story Ceremony for you!

Now some background information on us!

Rev. Lorelei Starbuck

Ordained non denominational minister and expert in all forms of ceremonies. "My goal is to take everyone present on an emotional journey so that the experience is powerful, meaningful and memorable. If anyone looks at their watch, or fidgets in their seat, then I have failed in my job"

I specialize in blending difficult religious or cultural backgrounds together in a cohesive spiritual ceremony, regardless of the religious orientation. I have studied marriage rituals in all faiths and cultures including; Inter faith, Agnostic, Christian, Celtic, Buddhist, Hindu, Native American, and Spiritual and can blend your ceremony so that both sides are honored.

Rev. Ed Sarnella

Ordained Christian minister and specializes in Christian Ceremonies built around the profound faith he has in the Lord. “ A Christian ceremony does not need to be old and boring, stayed and stiff. You can have it all, a spontaneous traditional ceremony, joy and laughter at the same time!”

I am a Christian minister and do my best to bring love, joy and peace to your wedding ceremony. I am someone you can depend on to be prepared, peaceful, calm and to help navigate the storms that may cause instability. The everyday planning of the perfect wedding causes a certain amount of stress. I am the stress relief . Filled with excitement and anticipation I am your skillful guide for the perfect wedding. In our imperfect world I am here to help my couples navigate and create an amazing, memorable wedding ceremony. You can depend on me to make sure your wedding day is what you always wanted it to be.

If you are looking to put a signature on your wedding either one of us can guide you through every step of the way. We can add many unique alternative ceremonial elements to your wedding.

More Info: We do require a meeting with each couple before agreeing to officiate a ceremony. We never agree to a wedding over the phone without a face to face meeting either in person or using Skype! It is important to us that there is chemistry and mutual respect of the process and we want to make sure that we are the right person for the job!"

Wow. All that can be said is Wow. From start to finish Rev. Lorelei was positively amazing and we could not possibly have asked for more! My husband and I are both spiritual but non-religious, but we also come from religious families. We loved Rev Lorelei from the moment we met with her. She assured us that we could have a ceremony that not only highlighted our love for each other, but also included a few "hidden" wiccan traditions (such as a traditional handfasting and jumping the broom) AND keep my Christian family happy and unoffended. AND BOY, she delivered on that assurance 100%! Our ceremony was relaxed, beautiful and personal. People kept coming up to us after the ceremony to remark on the ceremony and MORE than one person said it was the best wedding ceremony they had ever witnessed. We also did our premarital counseling with Rev. Lorelei and we are so so very happy that we did. Even though we have been together for 11 years, she was still able to help us identify potential "needs work" areas and gave us some unbelievable advice that we implement every day. It also gave her a chance to learn more about us as individuals, which I believe only made our bond to our wedding officiate stronger on our wedding day, like being married by an old friend. Not only did she deliver on EVERYTHING she told us she would do from the beginning, BUT she even swooped in to give extra support and guidance after we had a family tragedy one week before our wedding. To me, that shows someone who doesn't just care about getting a paycheck but, instead, someone who genuinely cares about the well-being of me, my husband and my family and that speaks volumes for us. Thank you a million times, Rev Lorelei, for making our entire wedding process a beautiful experience that we will cherish for years to come.

I can't begin to say how important it is to have a good officiant at a wedding... The officiant directs the tone of the ceremony... I consider myself very lucky I had Rev. Lorelei Starbuck who graced us with her presence and agreed to be the officiant at our wedding.
It was beautiful, cause she made it beautiful!
I did not know her as an officiant or watched any weddings she's done before, but I just knew I wanted her to marry us and I'm glad she did.
Thank you!!

Our guests are still talking about how much they enjoyed our ceremony because of her originality and sincerity! The wine ceremony she performed was our favorite. My wife and I would recommend her services to anyone!

My wife & I have always had a love for the written and spoken word. Rev. Lorelei Starbuck was born for this role. We knew right away during our first meeting with her that she was the real deal. She performed our ceremony almost magically. The way she spoke connected with every single one of our guest and in our hearts. It was the most amazing moments and moments we will never forget. Neither will our guests. Everyone kept saying how wonderful she was and what a beautiful ceremony she performed. We can't recommend her enough. We are still living on a high and a lot of that is in part due to Rev. Starbucks gift as a reverend. We shall always remember that "Forever is today and not tomorrow".

Out of all of the aspects of our wedding, the one thing we got the most positive feedback on was the ceremony. Reverend Lorelei Starbuck did an amazing job making it personal while still keeping it short and sweet. She had many of our guests both laughing and in tears in the best possible way. It is truly something that we will cherish and remember for years to come and we are so thankful that we found her to officiate our wedding. I HIGHLY recommend her due to her professionalism and her dedication to making your ceremony a non-cookie cutter, personal event that you and your guests will remember. Don't read another review- just book her! I can promise you that you won't regret it!!

When my Husband and I were looking for an Officiant for our wedding, we both knew we wanted someone special that would create an original ceremony for us. We wanted our family and friends to really understand our love and commitment.

Reverend Lorelei Starbuck went way above and beyond our expectations! When we first met her at our local Starbucks coffee, we were initially drawn to her and felt like we had known her for years. The conversation was so easy with her. She is a wonderful communicator!

Through the whole planning process she was very attentive and answered any questions or concerns we had right away.

At the rehearsal she was amazing. Some people of the bridal party were running late and she was so patient and ran through the practice more than once after everyone got there. As a stressed and frazzled bride that meant A LOT to me! She just has this calming nature!

The day of the wedding she was absolutely amazing for our ceremony. She did a wonderful job weaving together our love stories into one amazing love story. There wasn't a dry eye in the ceremony. She made it very personal. I loved how she made it feel like it was just the two of us with her. It was truly a special moment we will treasure forever.

We are so excited we found Reverend Lorelei Starbuck here on Wedding Wire. Our wedding would not have been complete without her beautifully done ceremony.

We have received nothing but compliments and praise about our ceremony and Reverend Lorelei Starbuck! Everyone was blown away how personal the ceremony was. I was way more then we could have ever asked for!

If you are looking for a personal or one of a kind ceremony for your wedding, Reverend Lorelei Starbuck is the minister or officiant for you! : )

With all our Love,

Lindsey and Kevin

Lorelei Starbuck will not disappoint!
My fiance and I were in a bind when we found Reverend Starbuck. We had completely planned and paid for our wedding to take place at our summer home on the East Coast when my mother became too ill to travel and we had to cancel it and start from scratch. Lorelei was the first "vendor" I found. She was not only available for our date with only a few months to spare (which must have been a cosmic sign!), but she also made herself available to Matt and myself for guidance and questions along the way. She was friendly, punctual, professional and so easy to talk to. We both felt like she "got" us right from the start and we were so incredibly happy to have found her. The day of the rehearsal she took total charge in a very loving way, which was great because the venue coordinator was less than organized. We left the rehearsal confident that our big day was going to be everything we wanted. The day of the wedding was perfect. She conducted a touching, heart felt ceremony that garnered rave reviews. So many of my guests thought she was my aunt, or some family member, which was particularly satisfying because she said that would happen. I would highly recommend Reverend Starbuck for any wedding, commitment ceremony or vow renewal. I would love to find a way to work with her again in the future!

Her thoroughness and ability to create a customized ceremony highlighted a great experience for my new wife and I. She was awesome! Read less

We hired Rev. Starbuck for our commitment ceremony. She is just awesome. If you are looking for something unique, you have found it in her. I could not be happier with my ceremony. We did not want the same ole' traditional ways. My guest were coming up to me afterwards wanting to know how I found her. She is very entertaining and extremely helpful. I just can not say enough...such a positive energy.

Could not have asked for a better person to share our special day with. Not only did Lorelei make the space beautiful, she made our ceremony more meaningful spiritual and more memorable than we could've imagined. Not at any point did we feel like just another person she married, but more as friends and family. I would highly recommend you using her and her services you won't be disappointed!!

Hiring Rev. Lorelei Starbuck to be our officiant was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. From day one, Lorelei absolutely blew us away with her kindness. We met at a Starbucks Coffee over Christmas break to get to know each other, and she welcomed us to her home a few months later (we were planning our wedding from out of town) for pre-marital counseling. The counseling helped my husband and I foster an open dialogue and come up with a way to resolve conflict with each other.

The day before the wedding, Lorelei arrived at our church early to assist us with our rehearsal. This was extremely kind of her, seeing as how we did not have a wedding coordinator to do this for us. Every one had a clear understanding of what would happen the next day thanks to Lorelei's awesome instructions.

The wedding ceremony was nothing short of magical. Lorelei spoke to both of us from the heart as our family and friends watched us from the pews... this was a far cry from your typical generic ceremony with the standard readings. Lorelei's words were so wise and beautiful; she is one of the best communicators I have ever met. She wove our "love stories" together into a beautiful speech, which really set off the waterworks in the church! My friends and family told me after the ceremony that it was the most beautiful ceremony they ever attended. They asked how long Lorelei knew us, due to all the amazing details she included in the ceremony.

We are so happy that we chose Lorelei to be a part of our special day, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an incredible wedding officiant. She truly has a special gift for what she does. -Eva, 6/22/13

Lorelei Starbuck made our wedding day. I have been to many weddings and they always came across as pretty routine as far as the ceremony and exchanging of vows were concerned. My husbands and my wedding was nontraditional, we were married in a stretch hummer limo on our way to the airport to jet set to Las Vegas. Lorelei was very flexible with our schedule and she made the process very easy on us and our families. For knowing us for such a short time she made the day more memorable than we could have imagined. Her words were so touching; there wasn't a dry eye in the limo. She really tailored the vows to fit our relationship and to have just the right balance of religion and ceremony. We really couldn't have had more of a perfect ceremony. I would highly recommend Lorelei as an officiant to anyone I knew who was planning a wedding. Even my best friend who was just married last December commented how good she was and wishes she would have known about her for her own wedding.

Rev. Lorelei was amazing from the start! The first time we met up with her, we knew we had to have her as our officiant. If your looking for a fun person who is willing to really get to know you as a couple, she is definitely the one! We also went through premarital counseling with her. At first we were kind of skeptical about this process but now we are so glad we followed through with it. She was honest and really helpful. We could tell she wanted us to have a successful marriage. Lorelei was more than an officiant... she was a friend, a confidant, and our cheerleader. We are so pleased with her service and wouldn't change a thing about the ceremony. She made the ceremony so personal, that the whole crowd was it tears. At the reception, everyone was talking about how amazing Lorelei was and how she really hit home in the hearts of all of those there. She's fantastic! I would definitely recommend her

I love the idea of the love stories and look forward to reading them on our anniversaries. Thank you for making our day so fantastic!

Revrand Lorelei Starbuck was one of our favorite parts of our wedding. From our first meeting she captured ever essence of what my now husband and I am as a couple, as if we had all been friends for years. She started just getting to know us and our story, asking a lot of questions that really brought out our personalities and values and beautifully combined that into the ceremony which made it very personal and special. There are so many things I loved that Lorelei added to our special day. My favorite though is the letter from my husband that I have not read, yet. Before the wedding she asked both me and my husband to write love letters to each other about our journey that led us to starting our lives together. She read them to get to know our love story as we each saw it and then gifted them both back to us to open on our first anniversary. We put them in a box with a bottle of wine to share and I cannot WAIT to open both. To end, I would highly recommend Lorelei. She is fantastic in every way. Very flexible, detail oriented, and important for every bride...understands how busy things can be leading up to your big day, and she instills every confidence that the ceremony will be beautiful and completely you and your husband's shining moment.

Reverend Starbuck provided us with a wonderful and enjoyable ceremony. She did a very good job of blending both of our cultures and making our guests feel special. It was truly unique. Her love story of us was touching, realistic and reminded our guests of the true foundation of a marriage - love. She was very professional, arriving well before the start - at our rehearsal and the day of the event. She even created a special box for us that housed our love stories written by each of us. Extremely thoughtful!
I would definitely recommend her to any of my friends or family. Thank you!!

Our ceremony was a commitment ceremony - technically not a wedding - and we were concerned about whether we could find just the right person to do this as it is relatively unusual, although becoming more and more commonplace.

All we can say is there is NO ONE in Austin we would recommend but Lorelei Starbuck! We love her! She is not only a minister, but an extremely spiritual person, which was our number one "want!" Lorelei was incredible from the first moment we spoke on the phone. Professional beyond, and so flexible on schedules, and especially in listening and helping us with how we wanted to create our ceremony. She has the most incredible sense of reading people and knowing just what to do and say before, during, and after your ceremony! She was loving and warm with our guests, even seeking out those we were concerned may have a problem with the day or just in general.

Everything about our day was PERFECT - and beside Mother Nature being kind to us, we mostly had Lorelei to thank for helping us have THE most wonderful, special day of our lives. If you are lucky enough to pick a date that Lorelei is available - take it - you will be lucky indeed! She is one incredibly special person! We love you Lorelei (& Ed too!!)

Warmly, Dave & Jo

We had a blend of American and Persian wedding so it was quite complicated but it went off without a hitch! She made my family feel included as well. She attended the rehearsal and helped coordinate through the different aspects. On the day of the wedding, we ran into a few issues trying to set up for the ceremony and Rev. Lorelei stepped in and helped smooth out our issues. She was very professional and dressed very well for the occassion. We received so many compliments and positive feedback from our guests on how lovely the ceremony was and what a wonderful job she did. I would highly recommend Starbuck Weddings to anyone!

Rev. Starbuck was an amazing officiant for our ceremony and I am ecstatic that we found her!! She took our words of love for each other and made the ceremony not only memorable but personal and touching. She ensured she was available for last minute appointments and appeared for the rehearsal to guarantee a perfect wedding. Our ceremony was outside in the cold and wind and she shortened the ceremony proceedings yet still provided everything and more than we asked for. Her services made an alreay perfect wedding amazing and we couldn't have asked for more. I highly recommend Rev. Starbucks services especially if you want a very personal ceremony and perfect service.

I cant even begin to create words to express just how happy my new husband and I are with Starbuck Weddings. I really can't. Rev Loreli was the kindest woman ever. Because of her I was not nervous or anxious at all. She gave the most beautiful ceremony! No one was bored and her voice is so soothing that she could read the phone book and you would hang on every word and still be relaxed and overjoyed. She was attentive to what we were looking for and was so knowledgeable with so many different religions and cultures that it was easy for her to conduct a blended ceremony. I really wish I could actually convey into words just how happy we were with her. She is the best.

We were fortunate enough to have Rev. Lorelei marry us on 10/13/12. She absolutely made our wedding! We knew we wanted a very special ceremony but we didn't know the first thing about how to accomplish this kind of ceremony. Rev. Lorelei met with us and kindly guided us through different options that made us both so excited for our ceremony. Just listening to her words on marriage sitting outside a Starbucks - we were so inspired and so relieved we'd found the perfect person for our special day - and boy was it special! We cried, we laughed! Everyone said Rev. Lorelei was incredible and how did we ever find someone so special!?! She really took the time to get to know us and it was a very personal ceremony. Not only did she deliver an absolutely magical ceremony but she helped guide us thought the chaos of pre wedding set up- and even pinned my grooms boutonniere on his suit for him. From the day I met Rev Lorelei I noticed what a calming presence she has. As a bride who is a perpetual worrier - I knew as soon as I saw Rev Lorelei walk into the chapel on our wedding day that everything was going to be just fine! Seriously, She absolutely made the most special moment in my life - the moment i married my husband - perfect and I will be forever grateful.

We were fortunate enough to have Rev. Lorelei marry us on 10/13/12. She absolutely made our wedding! We knew we wanted a very special ceremony but we didn't know the first thing about how to accomplish this kind of ceremony. Rev.

Lorelei was absolutely amazing. She took the time to meet us and get to know us a little before our wedding, made suggestions about the ceremony based on our personalities and wishes and stayed in touch up to the day. She is gifted in her ability to perform an eloquent, meaningful, professional and beautiful ceremony and made our day so very special. We are so lucky to have chosen her feel that having her at our wedding enhanced the moment and made it better than we had imagined. Thanks Lorelei!!!!

Rev. Lorelei was simply AMAZING! There are people on this earth who can grab a room with their emotion and passion for what they do and Lorelei left a lasting impression on everyone at our wedding. Truly powerful stuff.

We totally lucked out stumbling on a marketing email from Sacred Affairs and quickly arranged a meeting with Lorelei. It was the first chance for us to visualize what our wedding ceremony would be like, and Lorelei was able to answer all of our questions and provide thoughtful solutions for our various needs -- from suggestions on how to accommodate remarried parents to unique ceremony ideas.

During the month leading up to our wedding, we also took advantage of Lorelei's marriage counseling -- highly recommend. It helped us discuss topics about our relationship we had not explored and we walked away with a greater sense of partnership and outlook about our new life.

The ceremony was extremely special and tailored to our personal love story. Lorelei doesnt read from a script or present some rigid ceremony, yet she still worked in everything we wanted. Her professionalism resonates as she seamlessly walked us through our ceremony and provided much needed comfort both pre-wedding and during the ceremony.

As we decompress from our wedding, we're still getting comments from our guest about how wonderful the ceremony was. Rev. Lorelei brought a feeling of love to our united families and reminded those already in love just how special that bond is and means.

With love,

Andrew & Kendra

Our ceremony was not memorized or recited from a page, and it could not have been more organized and meaningful. You will feel Lorelei's experience when you meet with her the first time and as you see her during your vows.

Lorelei was wonderful. She gave us an experience that we could not have had without her. We received more compliments about the nature of our ceremony than any other component of the wedding or reception! "the most beautiful wedding I've ever been to" came from a few guests. Both older and younger couples told us stories about their husband's tearing up. Lorelei seemed to be herself emotionally invested in our special day.

Lorelei responded quickly to any correspondence. She constantly assured me that I could contact her with any concern or question.

One of my memories from before the ceremony is when Lorelei came to see me in my room. I was very nervous and had a few last minute things I needed to speak with her about. She is very calming and really molded the ceremony to accommodate our every wish. My maid of honor who secretly questions everything I do, even said that she would love to have Lorelei do her ceremony. That meant a lot to me.

We cannot thank Lorelei enough.

I honestly just randomly picked Rev. Lorelei from a website. The first time I met her, it was like talking to an old friend. She wanted to know about me and the man who is now my husband. She is very personable, laid back, and warm. The wedding service she performed for my husband and I was beautiful, she really made an effort to include the family and friends that attended. I am nothing short of ecstatic about connecting with her and having her make my wedding day perfect!

Rev. Starbuck is the PERFECT person to unite people in love. Her "ceremony" (in quotes for a reason) is a beautiful joining!! This is so personalized, it is not a ceremony, it is truly a beautiful union of two loving people and she is so much a part of the love shared there. She is so interested in the two getting married that you feel like she has been part of your life forever - she is such a wonderful human being!!! You would be so fortunate to have her perform your union!!!!! Bride Review

Our wedding, officiated by Reverend Lorelei, was the most personal, memorable experience that we could have asked for. Reverend Lorelei took the time to learn about us and our desires for our marriage union, and presented us with a ceremony that was beyond words or expectation. Her passion for our moment, is clearly seen in all the photographs, and the special touches she added during the ceremony left us either speechless or in tears.
This is what a marriage ceremony is about – made possible only by the love and compassion of Reverend Lorelei. Groom Review

I am so blessed that Leah and Paul asked me to be a part of their day. It was all to easy to be in love with their love story and so to bring all of me to it. I strive to do this with every ceremony. But thanks must go out to all my couples as the gift they give me far out weighs my work for them!

This was more than just a great value, it was a truly personalized service. The ceremony was tailored to us, and everyone in attendance agreed it was beautiful. We love the photos and the photo montage they created for us. We will definitely use them again for other special moments in the life of our family.

She also made us feel very welcomed upon our first and only meeting before the big day, and had a serene calmness that every bride and groom should have the day of. She was a blessing in disguise and left our guests asking how long we had known her! I recommend Lorelei with the highest of regards. You wont be disappointed if you book her!

I knew from the moment we met Lorelei that my wedding was going to be perfect, and I was absolutely right! She immediately put me at ease about coming up with a ceremony that incorporated both of our traditions (pagan/christian) while also not alientating our guests which was very important to us. She was always available, and was absolutely my anchor on the day of the wedding. She has such a calmness about her that you can't help but calm down yourself and know that everything will work out. Lorelei even managed to rescue a honey bee that had gotten itself trapped between the layers of tulle on my dress during the ceremony...so quickly and skillfully, that it was over before I knew anything was amiss! She is a problem solver, and genuinely takes an interest in her clients. She was like my wedding fairy godmother. I know it seems overly gushy, but it's all true. If I ever have occasion to need her again (child blessing/couple counselling/rededication), I wouldn't have anyone else but Lorelei.

Several members of our family asked how long we knew her. They were impressed at how well she knew us individually and as a couple, along with some of the quirky stories that only our closest family and friends knew. Many of our guests told us it was the best wedding they had ever attended. I believe much of that was because of Lorelei.

We - a German couple since 2001- love to spend vacations in LA California. During our last stay in 2011 hubby pronounced the special words, and I answered: I do!
So we were suddenly eloping! Not having anything prepared, we checked our possibilities per internet. Skipping through a huge range of vendors with tremendous offers, our eyes caught the beautiful god given smile of reverend Lorelei Starbuck – we knew exactly that moment: She was the right one for us! After a short notice per mail, she got in contact straight away. We met in our hotel to get in touch personally. Lorelei was incredible from the first moment we met! Asking what we desire, listening to our story, giving advice which documents we would need, and helping to choose the location. She simply customized her services matching our needs. We felt safe and certain right from the beginning. Excellent and professional also the paperwork service, certificates were done in a moment! Our private ceremony at the Palisades park “the bluff” in Santa Monica was SO special – all of her touchy wonderful words just for us, they went straight to the heart! We were lucky we found her services. We can whole-heartedly recommend reverend Lorelei Starbuck!

She had us each right our love story in our words, we couldn't share them with one another, and that's how she devised the ceremony. It was personal, special, and memorable. She met with us a few times before we got married, so that we forged a bond quickly, and it all felt very comfortable and natural. I cannot recommend her enough!

Lorelei married us in 2009 when we eloped on the beach. She is really great prior to the wedding: very professional , organized, prompt, and helpful. But that is only the tip of the amazing things Lorelei can bring to your life. Her words and the way she used our love stories to customize our wedding ceremony was breathtaking. We had no idea what to expect and she blew us away with an amazing special memorable, personal, customized ceremony. We we decided to get remarried in front of our friends and family a year later and we simply couldn't do it again without her so we flew her to Arizona for our big ceremony. Again, her words inspired us and every in attendance. She truley has become a very special person in our lives.

Lorelei was an amazing officiant. She really took the time to get to know US. While reading our vows, she had committed them to her memory and spoke extremely fluidly and you can tell she definitely practices and know exactly what she is going to say. Our audience felt like she was a good friend of ours knowing all the little characteristics of our personalities and our relationship. Our only downfall was that she was unavailable for our rehearsal, but luckily she sent her husband instead (who is also an officiant) to lead the rehearsal the day before.

We had a great experience with Lorelei. She made the service very personable, like she had know us for years. I would refer her to my closest friends and family.
