About

People ask Lori why she became a wedding officiant. Here鈥檚 the story, short and sweet. She had friends that were looking for a Rabbi to perform a marriage ceremony for them and could not find one because they were a same-sex couple. They asked if she would become ordained because she knew the Jewish rituals and believes that love is love. That was Lori's first ceremony in 2013.

"As a wedding officiant, I create and perform joyful, meaningful, and personalized non-denominational wedding ceremonies for ALL couples." ~ Lori

Wonderful to work with

Lori officiated our wedding ceremony on 10/14/22. From the beginning, Lori was very professional and responsive. She worked with us to create a memorable ceremony and we loved the personal touches she added in our ceremony speech. Lori made sure we were happy with everything and sent us multiple drafts to approve. Lori answered every question we had and made us feel prepared for our big day. She even noticed that the groom's suit jacket had stitching still on it that needed to be cut. Lori went above and beyond for us and we couldn't have asked for a better Officiant. We definitely recommend her and her team!

Speechless

Lori not only exceeded our expectations, but she brought us and our guests to tears with her beautiful ceremony. Being a same-sex couple, finding the perfect officiant was very important to us. Lori made us feel special and welcomed, and she was able to perfectly capture our story, values, and love for each other. With her artistic writing, unique personality, and even random check-ins after marriage, I don鈥檛 think you鈥檒l ever find a better officiant!

Through a few twists and turns, her journey brought her back to NEPA where she eventually diversified her public speaking and messaging abilities into a Self-Development Coaching business. Although, she occasionally still performs comedy, merging her lifelong interests in writing and speaking as well as, practices in natural health and wellness was a necessary evolution in her own self development.

Teri鈥檚 unconventional life choices has enriched her understanding and compassion for the steps others feel compelled towards on their journey. Her transformative speaking and coaching come from a deep exploration of self. The innate sense of humor is the filter in which her messages are delivered. However cloaked, the message is always one of encouragement, non-judgement and love, with a little side of funny.

There is no greater transformative energy on earth than LOVE. It is with great honor that Teri welcomes each jubilant opportunity to Officiate and unite couples in the unparalleled Ceremonies by Lori, as well as, to become a part of her dynamic team.
