I provide personal and fun wedding ceremonies for everyone and specialize in non-religious wedding ceremonies, same-sex marriages, and re-marriages, as well as traditional ceremonies.
When I began officiating weddings, it was just for family and close friends. I received such great feedback from guests and enjoyed officiating so much that I decided to expand my reach, that this was something I should share with other people who might need a special ceremony. I pride myself on creating affordable personalized ceremonies that really fit the couple's desires to make it a special, memorable part of their big day.
My services include creation of a personalized ceremony, attendance at the rehearsal (if requested), officiating the ceremony, and filing the marriage license after. Weekend pricing starts at $500 (Monday-Thursday starts at $300) and includes creation of the ceremony, rehearsal (if requested), performing the ceremony and filing paperwork after. Additional charges may apply for holidays and extensive travel.
Whether you want to create your own ceremony or have me write it for you, you'll have full creative control to make sure your ceremony is special and memorable for years to come.

I was very nervous about finding an officiant but after reading many reviews on several websites, i found Lauren and so glad i did! From our very first contact to the very last minute of our ceremony, Lauren made me feel completely calm! We had no clue what we wanted our ceremony to be like but we just knew we wanted it fun and light-hearted and we did not want to write our own vows. After filling out Lauren's quick questionnaire and having our first phone call with her, we knew that we made the right decision. When she sent me the first draft of our ceremony, my husband and I took a weekend to go over it and see if we wanted to make any changes. We literally changed only two words, added two inside jokes between the groom and I, and had her change the wording of our sand ceremony just slightly as our five children were involved but we weren't using different colors as most sand ceremonies do. Lauren spoke clearly and with emotion that some of our guest even asked us if we knew her prior to our ceremony. Also, we were both nervous on having to repeat a few paragraphs and not forgetting any words, but Lauren repeated everything for both of us a few words at a time, and she spoke softly enough that our guests were able to hear only myself and the groom when reciting our vows which i thought was such a nice touch. She made sure she took care of the paperwork as soon as she arrived so everything was ready prior to our ceremony starting. She also gave me some tips a few weeks before the wedding to help me cope with some of the stress that i was going through and really helped me with advise on delegating some duties to my family. During the reception, i had so many guests tell me how beautiful our vows were and although i would have loved to take the credit for them, Lauren is amazing and she deserves all the credit! Thank you Lauren!

The Perfect Ceremony
It was the greatest pleasure working with Lauren on our ceremony. She was incredibly attentive from the first email through our wedding date, always making herself available to answer any questions/concerns we had. Lauren paid such close attention to detail as my husband and I recounted our stories to her, ensuring that our ceremony was completely unique to us. We couldn't ask for a better officiant for our special day.

It was a pleasure having Lauren officiate our wedding.
My wife and I were looking for an officiant for our wedding and we selected Lauren because she was local, was well-known to our Township Registrar and when we visited her website, we liked what we saw.
When we reached out to her and she responded, we found her to be very easy to work with. She was extremely open to our ideas and made the entire process look very easy. We met her before the actual wedding and she came well prepared with all the various options - themes, vows, length of ceremony and even the script she was going to follow. Nothing could be easier. She answered all our questions and gave us some good ideas too. She is a very nice person too.
The actual wedding went as well as we had hoped for. Lauren was there on time, spent as much time as we needed and followed though on all the paperwork to follow. She was a pleasure to work with.
We would highly recommend her.
Lauren is outstanding and an excellent officiant!! She is a great friend of mine and I would recommend her to all my couples I work with!
