Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life -- and the wedding ceremony itself is the very beginning of your life together as a married couple. After your wedding day, when you look back, most likely the parts you will remember best, and most fondly, are the feelings you had during your ceremony, and the moment that you were pronounced as being married!
No matter what the size of your wedding, your ceremony can be as simple or customized as you like --it's YOUR wedding day and YOUR ceremony! As your officiant, I take the time to get to know the two of you, and to work with you, constructing your ceremony to make it something that is truly unique and reflective of who you are as a couple. There are no "rules" as to what must be included in a wedding ceremony, other than your "consent" and my "pronouncement" of you as being married -- everything else is flexible!
I serve the Central Florida area -- Orlando, Winter Park, Lake Mary, and all surrounding areas. I'm on the Disney Fairytale Weddings "Preferred Officiant" list, and specialize in adding that extra-magical Disney touch to your ceremony!

More than A Lovely Ceremony!
There are not enough good things I can begin to say about Renee. It was not until we began the process of selecting an officiant that we realized the importance of their role. We were having a Disney wedding, and with my husband and I having a love for Disney, we wanted someone who would embody the Disney spirit. First, we researched all of the officiants on the list- google searches, web sites, pictures- everything. Something about Renee stood out immediately. Her website really conveyed her excitement for what she does. Being one that exhausts every decision, I needed more. I emailed all of the officiants that were of interest. Their responses set them apart. They were all kind, but Renee's response had a warmth behind it. It was more than words in an email or a business transaction. In between the lines, you can really sense that Renee has a deep love and passion for what she does; she wants to make this day magical for you. Her emails were very detailed and thoughtful- she really has a desire to make that connection with couples. In the spirit of Disney, I said to my fiancé "she reminds me of the Fairy Godmother...I think I want her." He agreed.
We scheduled a phone call with her, and she thoroughly went over every detail of the ceremony, fine-tuning it to personalize everything to US. She had so much to offer that we didn't even think of! The 3 of us talked for well over an hour, and even though it was our first phone conversation, it felt as if we'd known her for years. She made us feel so comfortable and reassured. Until that point, the wedding was just a list of things we had chosen through Disney's coordinator- but Renee brought it to life and got us even more excited! She made it more real in that phone call.
As the wedding approached, she was in constant contact- reminding us of important dates, keeping us informed on everything we needed, even helping us pick out elements for our ceremony when we were unsure. And then the actual day came. I emailed her the morning of with a little freak-out moment. She called me immediately to offer reassurance and answer all of my questions until I was comfortable. We finally met that afternoon right before the ceremony. It didn't even feel like a first meeting because we had gotten to know each other so well over the months prior. The ceremony was obviously perfection and Renee performed it effortlessly. Some of the guests had roles in the ceremony, and beforehand, Renee was sure to go over everything carefully with them to make sure it was seamless. I was so worried they would arrive and be confused about what to do, but Renee made sure she talked to them and explain everything so they would be comfortable. I've never said to other people after their wedding "wow, we really liked your officiant," but the days following the wedding, we received so many comments from our guests about how much they loved Renee. We're so grateful that Renee officiated our ceremony. She is not only a great officiant, but a kind, genuine, soul.

A Lovely Experience!
We were looking for a non religious officiant for our Disney World Wedding and after much research Renee seemed like a good fit for us. From the very beginning she was warm, personable, and a joy to work with. During our first conversation with Renee, she seemed genuinely excited to work with us. Renee thoroughly explained the different packages to us but was never pushy one way or the other, which we really appreciated. Once it was time to actually move forward with the marriage license process, Renee was helpful beyond belief. Being that we were getting married in Florida but living in New York, her step by step guidance streamlined the process and made it easier than we could have ever imagined. During our rehearsal, Renee walked us through our ceremony and gave everyone helpful tips for making the ceremony seamless. The same can be said for the big day - Renee was a joy to work with and we are so happy we chose her to be a part of our special day!Sent on 05/07/2019
A Lovely Ceremony's reply:Sean and Jen, thank you so much for your review and kind words! It was truly a pleasure to work with you, and to see how the two of you shared every moment of your ceremony!

Renee was our magical fairy godmother!
When we were deciding on an officiant for our Disney wedding, we knew we wanted to have someone that would make the ceremony personal and unique to us. Renee did not disappoint. From our first conversation through the actual wedding day, she was incredibly sweet, thoughtful, and responsive to our questions and needs. We got so many compliments on our ceremony and how special it was. Our guests also enjoyed her magic wand waving at the end of our ceremony. I cannot recommend Renee enough. She was truly our fairy godmother and I couldn't imagine our ceremony being as wonderful as it was without her.Sent on 12/09/2019
A Lovely Ceremony's reply:Thank you so much for the honor (and fun!) of being a part of your wedding day. Working with wonderful couples like the two of you is why I say that I love what I do!
Renee is so sweet and kind! You can count on her to help make your ceremony formalities flow perfectly and memorable! I know our couples will be taken care of when I hear she is their officiant.
Such an amazing person and does a wonderful job with all of her ceremonies.
Renee is such a joy to be around and a true professional in this industry. She really enjoys getting to know each of her couples and make their ceremonies personal and special. From a vendor stand point, she is always on time, quick to communicate and such a pleasant "friendor" to be around.
