People ask Lori why she became a wedding officiant. Here’s 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

Being born in the Dominican Republic and immigrating to the United States at the age of 9, Maria has broken many barriers. She is 27 years old with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Management & is the proud owner of a Pennsylvania State Vehicle Inspection Facility.
There are many things that can get in the way of achieving one’s dreams, but Maria's passion and determination to become successful have always been major factors in reaching milestones in her life. Although she interacts with different people in her line of work, being a part of Ceremonies by Lori has given her the opportunity to connect on a more intimate level. Each ceremony is unique and it’s an amazing feeling to experience first hand how people can express their love for each.
"Lori has a passion for what she does and it shows in every single ceremony I have had the honor of being a part of. This is, hands down, my favorite part of being on her team."
Teri is based out of the Pocono Mountains and is a Communications Consultant and Wellness Coach with a BA in Interpersonal Communications from Wilkes University. Additionally, Teri is a Certified Reiki Master/Teacher since 2001 and certified fitness trainer. But perhaps the most unique trade of hers is her decade long career as a professional Stand-Up Comedian which started while living in NYC.
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’s 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.
