"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. Lorelei Starbuck _> We are supporting Merryvale Weddings at the open house June 28, 2-6 South Austin 13801 Carpenter Lane, Manchaca TX 78652. Come meet with me and REv. Ed!





I am an Ordained Non-Denominational Austin Wedding Minister/Officiant 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"



My one of a kind Love Story Ceremony cannot be duplicated. Each word spoken is designed from your love story and is presented to your guests so that feel like they are part of it. It is always Especially You .



Your ceremony is the cake and the reception is the icing. If the cake is flat the icing can’t fix it. So start your marriage off with something so special that your friends and relatives will truly be moved by your love, your relationship and your ceremony.



I also 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; Agnostic, Christian, Celtic, Buddhist, Hindu, Native American, Persian and Pagan and many more. You can blend your ceremony so that both sides are honored and yet still have the Especially You present.



Today the DIY wedding really means make it Especially You! Make your ceremony Especially You with a once in a life time ceremony!

Rev. Lorelei

Davy and I wanted our ceremony to be memorable and reflective of our relationship, nothing cheesy or average. As I started searching for officiants I came across the reviews for Sacred Affairs in particular the feedback I read about Lorelei seemed to be exactly what we were looking for. From the moment we connected she was extremely clear and organized, very gentle and conscious. She was so open and flexible about our ideas and making adjustments along the way. She provided our counseling session before the wedding and talked us step by step through some very challenging and evolutionary experiences, she provided incredible insight. By the time the wedding arrived we had made a new friend, Lorelei Starbuck! We wrote our love stories for her to review (as a part of her process she had us separately write about the evolution of our relationship) and WOW! Davy and I were blown away by how meaningful the whole ceremony was as a result of her presence. She had all of our family & friends laughing, crying and cheering. It was honestly far better than I could have imagined. Our family and friends were coming up to us after the ceremony asking how we knew Lorelei and asking "how did you find her? That was so incredible! I have never been to a wedding like that before". One of the best parts was many of our guests learned lots of new information about Davy and I, everyone was so curious afterwards asking so many questions about our relationship and things Lorelei had mentioned during her talks. Everyone was saying "Gosh I had no idea this about you" "I did not know that about you and Davy" We felt so much closer to our guests, and they felt so much closer to Davy and I as a result of the ceremony. It really opened up the evening making everyone feel so close and comfortable. I could not have asked for a more perfect person to stand up there with Davy and I to walk us through the experience of becoming husband and wife, she was truly amazing!

I get the perfect couples and feel so blessed to be have been allowed to present your ceremony. Your joy and true love for each other was easy to share. To have the opportunity to join two lives together is a gift that can not be given... it is one to be experienced.

WOW! What an amazing ceremony we had thanks to Rev. Starbuck! Our love story couldn't have been told in a better way, and the blending of our 5 children to form our 1 happy family was done perfectly. After our ceremony we had countless guests comment on how amazing the ceremony was, and the questions of "where did you find her?!" Still getting those questions from more guests as I type this a week later. We are 100% happy with how our ceremony went, thank you Rev. Starbuck!

Oh my goodness, hands down the best part of our wedding. The ceremony should be the highlight of the day and Rev. Lorelei makes that a reality. We instantly connected with her when we met with her prior to our wedding day. It felt like we had known her forever. Her Love Story ceremonies are so unique and the ceremony is the part of our wedding that we have received the most compliments about. We have had multiple people tell us how they actually LISTENED to the ceremony and that it was the most heartfelt and real ceremony they have experienced. You absolutely can not go wrong hiring Rev. Lorelei. Guaranteed the best part of the day...as it should be :)

What a wonderful officiant! My husband and I absolutely love Lorelei and her services! She made our wedding day so special for us and made it very fun for all of our guest to watch us get married. We also went to her pre-marriage counseling and what a great experience that was as well! really helped us see things from a different prospective about our soon to be marriage. I love that we can still meet with her if we ever need to and she will always be a special part of our lives! I would recommend her to anyone that is getting married!!!! You wont be let down!

We used Rev. Lorelei for our November wedding (yes, this review is LONG overdue) and I couldn't be happier with how our ceremony turned out. Neither my husband nor I attend(ed) church, so we didn't have anyone specific in mind when it came time to decide on an officiant. I knew we were going to have to hire someone, and the thought of a stranger marrying us made me a bit nervous - it just seems so impersonal. But once I came across Lorelei's reviews, those worries went away. She has tons of 5-star reviews for a reason. Simply put, she's amazing.

Thanks to Lorelei, we had the most beautiful, funny, and perfect ceremony we could have ever wished for. I had so many guests (both at the wedding and in the months since) tell me how much they loved her and the ceremony, and multiple people told me it was the best ceremony they'd ever attended. But the thing I loved hearing most -- and I heard it over and over again -- was how shocked people were that we'd only met Lorelei once before the wedding day. Everyone assumed she was a family friend or someone we'd known for years and years. Seriously, what more could you ask for?

Thank you for making our wedding day perfect, Lorelei!
