A seasoned public speaker, preacher, and writer, she crafts ceremonies that include magical moments, laughter and happy tears, delivering an experience that reflects each couple’s beliefs, values, and personalities.

Whether couples select a One of a Kind Ceremony or a Short & Sweet Ceremony, Elizabeth's goal is to help them celebrate Life and Love with solemnity, romance, moments of tenderness, and light-hearted playfulness.

Elizabeth works with couples of all faiths or those without a faith tradition; using everyday language and concepts that touch the heart, incorporating each couple’s love story and ideas into the ceremony script, with a dose of appropriate humor and a touch of British class! In 2017, Dr. Stewart was inducted into The Knot's Hall of Fame as one of the top 2% of wedding vendors across America; she has been awarded both WeddingWire's Couple's Choice Award and The Knot's Best of Weddings Award for the last 8 consecutive years.
Dr. Stewart offers a range of ceremonies to suit every budget and circumstance, from simple Elopements to lavish One of a Kind ceremonies, from regally traditional weddings to weddings that incorporate pop-cultural elements. Her main ceremonies are:
1. the One of Kind Ceremony which is completely customized from beginning to end and can include the couple's love story. The possibilities for this type of ceremony are endless. It is best suited for couples who are looking for an absolutely unique ceremony and for those who want to incorporate special themes, inter-faith rituals, cultural elements, and blended families.
2. the Short and Sweet Ceremony which provides a series of options from which the couple can select their preferences. This ceremony feels personal but doesn't have the degree of customization that a One of a Kind Ceremony offers. It is best suited for couples who may prefer a low profile during their ceremony or for those who would rather leave planning up to the Officiant than participate more fully in the process.
A Board-Certified Coach/ ICF Professional Certified Coach, Elizabeth also offers optional Marriage Coaching before and after couples tie the knot. She also offers bi-lingual ceremonies with the assistance of a translator (Spanish and German) and is usually available for wedding rehearsals.

Convenient, affordable, safe, and surprisingly romantic virtual elopement
Although all the planning for the dream wedding turned out to be futile, we still wanted to move forward with our lifelong commitment on our anniversary in 2021. After scrambling for weeks to find ANY venue during tier 3 mitigations (including all the county courthouses!!!), we leaned into the idea of a Zoom wedding about a week before. While we contacted many officiants, Dr. Stewart was the most responsive, easiest to talk to, straightforward, and was not overselling.
Honestly, we thought we wanted to "just make it official," but so grateful we did not do a courthouse wedding. Dr. Stewart sent a worksheet and incorporated it into a beautiful script. Honestly, it inspired us to see it as a celebration, not a legal transaction. Reflecting on our journey before the ceremony galvanized us to make the most of it.
After our long saga, we were married in our backyard next to the firepit, snow, and in the presence of our dog virtually! It felt like Dr. Stewart knew us, our struggle, and was right there to support us in our journey to married life. Also a plus, free recording over Zoom! Thank you so much for making this the easiest and nicest experience during the pandemic!

I've been fortunate to work with Dr. Elizabeth-Anne Stewart on a number of weddings over the past few years. When a couple tells me they have hired her, I'm always glad to hear it.
