Lorraine was awesome. She was very easy to work with and it was a pleasure to have her as our officiant for our wedding. She communicated with me through the entire process via email and was very patient no matter how many emails she received.

Reverend Lorraine was WONDERFUL! She delivered a beautiful ceremony. Rev. Lorraine was so easy to work with and helped us to customize our ceremony to meet our unique requests.

Her voice is soft and soothing which is so helpful for a nervous Bride & Groom. There is a peace about her that just calms even the most jittery of brides.

Thank you Reverend for blessing our marriage!

After 15 months of planning and interviewing dozens of vendors, asking about their backup plans, what-if scenarios etc, we thought we had the perfect team. On the wedding day, I got a phone call at 5:10 Lorraine was going to be late but she would be there at 5:40.(5:30 was our start time) 55 minutes later she showed up. Since the ceremony didn’t start until 55 minutes after it was supposed to, everything was pushed back an hour and cocktail hour was 15 minutes! We rushed through the ceremony, then we had to fit an hour of pictures into 15 minutes. Luckily, our photographer was top notch and she got the shots that we wanted. During this time, Lorraine wanted to leave as she had an appointment with another couple on the same grounds! She tried to leave without even saying goodbye, or apologizing to us. The venue and my mom told her she needed to stay and apologize to us. I am shocked she signed our marriage license. We ran past our venue time by 30 mins, which was an extra cost and all of our vendors needed to stay longer which WE also had to pay for. WE had to pay extra money to all the vendors because she was late. How is this fair?
She told us she would get to the venue 30 mins prior, but to get to our venue, she would have had to leave by 4PM. To get there 55 minutes late - something doesn't add up. She told us that she’s from Bucks County so she’s very familiar with the area so I had no doubt that she would be there. I am here to recommend that this woman retire from presiding over weddings. I also hope she reads this. We felt so comfortable paying in full with her before the wedding, only to have it blow up in our face. I really thought she would have called or emailed after the wedding to apologize, refund some of the money or even offer to pay for the vendors staying later because SHE was late. We never heard from her since our ceremony. I am still very upset about this even as I’m writing this review. I hope another couple can avoid this same situation.

There is absolutely NO WAY I would recommend this woman for any bride & groom to use as their officiant. She arrived at my daughters wedding 55 MINUTES LATE--yes that's right--55 MINUTES LATE!!!! Even after all this time has passed I am so upset how she was so cavalier about being so late. She was quick to blame traffic for her delay but when booking her for the wedding she assured us she was leaving Delaware in plenty of time since she used to live in Richboro, Pa & knew what traffic would be like. She tried to leave without even an apology to anyone . I guess she thought that MOUTHING the the word SORRY as my daughter walked down the aisle was sufficient enough. IT WASN'T!!! When I approached her after the hectic 15 minute photo session, she said to me "Are the bride & groom upset?" I looked at her & said, "What do you think?" She didn't even have the common courtesy to refer to them by their names. She took away so much of their wedding time that they didn't even get to talk to all of their guests. I hope that no other couple uses her because if they do there's a good chance they will end up having the same thing happen to them.

The wedding ceremony that Lorraine performed marrying my daughter and son-in-law was absolutely wonderful! The ceremony was custom made for them and it was perfect. Lorraine was very flexible and customized the ceremony including love letter and wine box ceremony for them. We will forever cherish the memories of this amazing day and wedding performed by Lorraine.

The moment we met Lorraine we pretty much had our minds made up. She is super friendly and always helpful. She gave us so many suggestions for the ceremony that I never knew about and it really made it perfect. She never limited us to how many times we could contact her. Prior to the wedding she ran through the whole ceremony with us in person and made me feel so much more at ease. I would definitely recommend her.

Lorraine was our officiant for our wedding this July in Chesapeake City. She was truly a joy to work with. She was very responsive, paid very close attention to all of the details, and made our ceremony exactly what we wanted. Lorraine was also with us for our rehearsal the night before to make sure everything was perfect. Her prices are very reasonable for the services she has to offer.

After meeting Lorraine my now husband had some misgivings and I should have followed his instinct on her. Lorraine seemed responsive as we emailed back and forth leading up to the wedding, and I provided her the finished ceremony a month in advance. She showed up on the wedding day and immediately I had a bad feeling. She couldn't pronounce my new name at all, and didn't even have the brain cells to try. She just stared at me when I said it. Its not a hard name. Then, it got so so much worse. As she started the ceremony, it was as though she had NEVER seen it before in her life. Fumbling words, mumbling, mixing sentences, changing them outright, destroying the ceremony we had crafted. Then, oh wait, it got WORSE. She skipped our ring ceremony altogether. Thats right. She got to the end and said "you've exchanged vows with these rings...... oh............ may I have the rings" and she started the ring ceremony. WHAT?! I was absolutely fuming. She destroyed my wedding ceremony, and I've waited 3 weeks to calm down to write this review, so you're lucky you didn't catch me after the ceremony. Thankfully, I brushed her aside and the rest of my wedding was fantastic, but she truly left a dark cloud in my memory. GO WITH YOUR GUT PEOPLE, DON'T CHOOSE LORRAINE FOR YOUR WEDDING!

Lorraine did an amazing job with our ceremony. We were struggling to find the perfect officiant who had experience with inter-faith ceremonies. She gave us great suggestions and had templates we could tweak to make our ceremony our "own" and to give us the perfect balance of both faiths (Catholic and Jewish). Lorraine is a wonderful woman to work with and we are so happy we had the opportunity to meet her. She also offered to speak the Hebrew translation during the ceremony for certain prayers which was a very special touch. She is very accommodating and is even willing to wear a specific color scarf to match your color scheme if you wanted her to. We are very thankful and grateful to Lorraine for performing such a beautiful ceremony and we will cherise the memory forever!

I had a very bad experience. Lorraine was all welcoming at the first meeting and very responsive on e-mail. I even agreeed to change my wedding time to accomodate her drive. Then I stopped hearing from her. 6 weeks prior to my wedding, I emailed her for the final details, and she says I never booked a wedding with her (although, she did cash a check from me). She tells me there is NO WAY she can do my wedding, as she has another wedding booked for the same time, and blows me off.(and my cashed check). Well thank god, I kept all our e-mails, so I forward the conversations to her, and only then is she apologetic and willing to return my deposit!! Extremely unprofessional......however, it all worked out and I booked a FABULOUS dependable minister!
