Have Lover, Will Travel is a wedding officiant business based out of Brooklyn. As the creator and writer behind Have Lover, Will Travel, I specialize in telling love stories and bringing a true sense of professionalism throughout my planning process, from our first meeting until your marriage license is filed.
As your wedding officiant, I will work with you to create a ceremony that is memorable, captivating, and deeply personal. I draw my inspiration from poetry and travel, from artists and the subjects they bring to life, from musicians and lyrics as they dance upon the notes, but mostly, by the love you share.
I choose words that are evocative of pure, raw emotion; a passionate embrace, an intimate conversation, a tearful reunion, a mischievous wink. Now let me choose some for you. Let me be the voice that unites you, formally and forever. Let me tell your story.
Given current restrictions, I'm happy to add a Zoom element to your ceremony or to help plan a virtual wedding that will feel just as personal as a traditional ceremony. I love working with couples to plan intimate elopements and recommend locations for your pop-up wedding.
I've worked as an assistant planner for the past 7 years so trust that along with my proficiency in writing your ceremony, the professionalism I have on wedding day, whether working with a team of industry experts or solely coordinating your elopement, is truly paramount.

HLWT is a marvel
I've been to a lot of weddings and my mother is an officiant, so I like to think I have some discretion.
My wife and I had a very stressful marriage process. We planned it in a week, during the pandemic, and it was too ambitious. We found HLWT just days before the wedding and hired them to officiate. We met with the director over zoom and suddenly, everything was okay. Liz took all the weight off our shoulders and managed to reassure us, focus our ideas, strategize, and tease out our love story, all at once. We were truly freaking out and Liz was a rock. We literally sent her our vows the morning of the wedding and she rolled with it.
(but don't do that.)
The ceremony Liz crafted for us was elegant, magical, and heartbreakingly beautiful. She captured our love and values so perfectly, it felt like we had hired a mind reader. No joke - in the middle of my own wedding I turned to her and shouted "GOD YOU'RE GOOD!" During the reception, some of our guests told me they were glad I did because they were thinking the same thing.
Liz brings to her work the sharpness of an event planner, the intuition of an artist, and the warmth of a friend. Her preparation is rigorous. She carefully collects the gems of the relationship and unveils them throughout the ceremony in a way that makes you discover them all over again.
I urgently recommend this business.Sent on 07/28/2020

Incredible to work with - Highly recommend!
Liz was absolutely incredible to work with! From our first introduction call to the day of the ceremony, she put us completely at ease and offered her assistance whenever possible. She clearly understood our story and translated it into a beautiful ceremony. As our wedding took place during Covid, we had a zoom video as part of our day and her team helped figure out technical difficulties so it would not make me worry, which was so appreciated! I highly recommend her services - our day would not have been the same without her!Sent on 09/22/2020

Liz married us this most recent weekend. We were actually really looking for something quick and simple and reached out to Liz and loved the look for the 'Just make it legal' ceremony. From the very first contact we had with Liz, we were really blown away by how dedicated she was to getting to know us, understand our story and make the ceremony feel personalized and special. It felt like she was charging us for something simple and small, yet giving us so much more. Her dedication to making it feel extremely special, made us realize we actually did want this too (even though it was a legal ceremony). We had never really stopped to think about our story from start to finish and hearing Liz tell it at the ceremony, was truly one of the best experiences of our lives. Couldn't recommend Liz more - she was the perfect mix of professional, friendly and sincere.Sent on 07/28/2020
