Truly heartfelt

We had the privilege of having Elizabeth officiate our two bride September wedding in Woodland, WA. Elizabeth was so thoughtful and kind. She was totally open to us personalizing our ceremony script and her handfasting ceremony was absolutely lovely. Her instructions were clear and made us feel comfortable and reduced our nerves. We would absolutely recommend Elizabeth to anybody who is seeking an LGBTQIA/woman officiant or just someone who “gets it!”

Beautiful and Unique Ceremony

We loved working with Elizabeth! My fiancé and I were nervous to select an officiant because we come from mixed faith families (Jewish, Mormon, Catholic...). She did an amazing job integrating different aspects of our backgrounds. We truly felt that our ceremony was unique and special to our story. Our friends and families kept telling us how beautiful the ceremony was. I really appreciate how she made everyone's culture and values feel included and honored. I would definitely recommend her to anyone, especially those looking for a more personalized ceremony.

An Amazing Minister!

Elizabeth is an amazing minister: caring, thoughtful, and a deep listener. Her questions, ideas, and resources helped us to create a ceremony that we loved. Our friends and family said it was one of the most beautiful ceremonies they'd ever been to.
