"Dear LisaAnn, You did an absolutely amazing job preparing, and performing our ceremony. We connected with you right away, because we felt that in our first meeting you did a phenomenal job of really trying to get to know us, without making us feel that we were being interviewed! Instead, we felt like we were chatting with an old friend. That wonderful, calming energy set the tone for our ceremony as well. The reflection you wrote was moving and personal, and all of the other components of the ceremony that you recommended to us perfectly represented us as a couple. Many of our guests complimented us on how moving and unique our ceremony was, and we agreed without a doubt that it was our favorite part of the entire day. We couldn't have hoped for anything more."

"Dear LisaAnn, Brian and I knew we wanted a wedding ceremony that reflected who we were but had no idea where to begin. You guided us through this process with grace, compassion and laughter. We so loved that you really listened to our story – asking questions that brought out the essence of our relationship, and helping us see past the logistics of planning a wedding to the real meaning of creating a union with another person. On the day of our wedding, you delivered a truly lovely ceremony that captured just who we are – without fanfare or hyperbole. Your reflection was so insightful that many of our guests assumed you were a long time friend. (That’s how we felt, too.) At the end of the wedding, we agreed that the ceremony was our favorite part. LisaAnn you are a wonderful person and gifted officiant. It was a joy working with you. Our heartfelt thanks!"

"Dear LisaAnn, we wanted to write this and let you know that we had a really wonderful experience working with you to design our wedding ceremony. You made our wedding ceremony and wedding day so special. You truly have a gift of bringing everything together and you captured our relationship together & vision for our ceremony perfectly. I can't tell you how many people have complimented us on the ceremony from our wedding at The Barn at Gibbet Hill. In addition, you offered really good advice, ideas, and encouraged us to write our own vows--and as a couple we grew closer through that process of working with you to create such a meaningful and special ceremony. It was our favorite part of the wedding! Thank-you LisaAnn you are a joy to work with!"

"LisaAnn, When we first met you, we knew that you were the perfect person to marry us. You not only understood what we wanted in our ceremony, but you also gave us some insight and spiritual guidance, as well as friendship. You helped make our wedding day the most beautiful day of our lives.

We felt like you were part of our family, not only for our wedding, but for the years to come. Even our family and friends can’t say enough great things about you.

One of the most comforting things you did for us was to keep us focused on each other, and on how much we loved each other. When we did that, everything else fell into place. We can’t thank you enough for everything LisaAnn. "

Love always,

"When Abby and I began thinking about our ceremony, we knew only one thing: that we wanted to express to each other, in front of our friends, family, and loved ones, how we feel about each other. For us, that is what marriage means. Then began a long search for the Officiant who would help us put words to our thoughts. That is when we met LisaAnn. From the moment we sat down with her, we knew she was the one. Her peaceful demeanor and calm voice ushered us through the process, culminating in our wedding day. She brought us and our friends and family together to share in our joy, and for that we are forever grateful.Now we are looking forward to having little ones, so that she can share in our baby-naming ceremony! Thank you, LisaAnn, You are in our hearts."

Abby and Laurie
"Dear Reverend LisaAnn, Terry and I are so grateful for all of your guidance and support in working with us to create our beautiful wedding ceremony. You gave us the resources and confidence to write our own vows, making the ceremony all the more special for us.

We also appreciate the thought and care with which you included my son Max. Everyone at the wedding was so impressed with the sand ceremony! Thank you for helping to make our wedding so truly meaningful. "

With Deepest Gratitude,
Meghan and Terry
"Working with LisaAnn was just what we needed to get our wedding ceremony successfully kicked off. Her caring and inquisitive nature helped us unravel what the right ceremony was for the two of us. We entered the process only having a general idea of what we were looking for.

As LisaAnn got to know us, she dug deep into what we needed to make the ceremony special and meaningful. She slowly crafted the final product around the readings we selected, the “vibe” we were looking for and our personalities. The ceremony was not only beautifully crafted and unique to both of us, it was also eloquently delivered. LisaAnn’s composure and flow helped captivate the guests while creating a magical atmosphere for us.

In addition to the ceremony, During the wedding rehearsal, LisaAnn’s calming nature guided us, the rest of the wedding party and the family members who were present through a successful, organized run-through. She answered questions, made decisions and supported us to ease the pressure of the pre-wedding process.

LisaAnn presented us with a beautiful keepsake of our wedding ceremony. It is a book containing the entire ceremony which we will cherish for years to come. We are so lucky to have found Reverend LisaAnn to officiate our wedding ceremony! "

Jason & Jennifer Smith
"Our experience with LisaAnn was not only comfortable and fun, but with her help we were able to truly express ourselves in the context of the wedding ceremony. We found LisaAnn to be open and sensitive to our wishes. She shared her ideas with us, but gave us plenty of "space" so we could work out our thoughts. In the end, everything turned out to be simply perfect! "

Susan & Eric Stanley
"We wanted to send our sincere thanks and gratitude for making our wedding day as spectacular and breath taking as it was. We received compliments from our guests all throughout our reception about how lovely and heart felt the ceremony you wrote for us was. Not only did you write a ceremony from your heart, you wrote a ceremony that truly captured our personalities, our religion, and our true love as a couple. You brought humor, sincerity and thoughtfulness, and of course true love to our ceremony, and for that we are forever grateful.

In addition, we wanted to thank you for your presence before our ceremony began. Not only did you spend the time to calm our nerves before our big day, you even helped calm down our bridal party so that they could get Melissa in her dress!

LisaAnn, thank you so much for making our wedding day so special. We will remember it for the rest of our lives and will always remember what an important role you played in our big day. "

Love,
Melissa and David McGovern
"After extensively interviewing wedding officiant's, we chose LisaAnn because she was open, kind, insightful, fun and the most down to earth. She gave freely of her time, meeting with us in person to get to know us. She has a gift both for asking thoughtful questions and listening deeply for the answers that are expressed between the words that are said. She helped us articulate the kind of ceremony we wanted and select the readings and our vows.

Before our wedding, she coached us through our pre-wedding jitters. On our wedding day, she performed the ceremony with grace, spiritual calm and a sense of humor. Many of our guests told us that ours was the most beautiful wedding ceremony they had ever attended.

We are very grateful that LisaAnn was the person in whom we placed our trust to perform our wedding. We feel she has become more than the minister for our wedding, she has become our friend. "
