Leora was amazing. Very professional, very responsive, and very detail oriented. She met with myself and my (then) fiance for a first interview of sorts, completely with the goal of personalizing our ceremony and vows. She was open to us giving ideas, writing our own vows and offered to help for every step of the way. I preferred to give her free rein (afterall, this is her industry!) and within the span of our initial meeting, was able to pinpoint all of these things that made us... "us". The way we interacted with each other, our comments and speech, the things that make us happy, Leora interwove everything into a ceremony that really made us happy. She was such a pleasure to work with!

Being in our business we've heard a lot of ceremonies and Leora's officiating is a breath of fresh air! She is engaging, enthusiastic, warm and inspirational. Her officiating focused on the couple--not just a "cookie cutter" oration. We're definitely looking forward to hearing Leora's work again and would recommend her to anyone looking to add a "spark" to their ceremony!
