Wedding with Laurie
If I only had one word to use to describe Laurie it would be INCREDIBLE. She helped us plan our wedding in 10 days on the beach at Siesta Key. She gave us the questionnaires and with our answers wrote the most beautiful vows that couldn’t have represented our feelings for each other any better as if she knew us for years. She found the spot on the beach doing her own drive around and found the best parking for our family. She gave us the most meaningful ideas for our wedding and incorporated everything we wanted. Her personal experiences brought so much into our wedding. Every time I sent her a message or email she responded almost immediately. Her joy and happiness for us showed when she read our vows. She kept us all calm when our family was running late. She came to the hotel where I was getting ready to make sure I didn’t have any other questions and that all was well. She directed us with all of the paperwork and took care of submitting the license for us. Laurie THANK YOU for making our wedding day beautiful smooth and left us with complete joy and happiness.Sent on 12/28/2020

Laurie is an amazing angel
Search no further for the perfect celebrant. Laurie pours her heart into her work and truly celebrates the power of love and commitment alongside each couple. Laurie is kind, professional, and goes way above and beyond to get to know her clients and create a totally custom ceremony. She will bring more love, joy and meaning to your event than money could ever buy. I couldn't recommend her more!Sent on 09/21/2020

Thank you, Laurie!
Where do I even begin!? Choosing an officiant is an important piece of your big day, and Laurie made our ceremony special, magical, and full of happy tears. She pays attention to every detail and makes sure that your wedding is everything you want it to be. In the short time we worked with her, she captured our essence and put together the perfect ceremony for us including a beautiful "blessing of the rings" which involved our parents infusing their wishes for us into our rings. We could not have asked for a more thoughtful experience. Laurie made it perfectly "us."Sent on 04/12/2021

Hi ! I'm glad you are here-it means you are getting married! Whohooo! How incredibly special is that? I'm Laurie-someone that had a very wonderful corporate career for a long time and then decided to follow my heart and do things that make my heart happy. I teach yoga, I travel, I drink coffee, and I officiate wedding ceremonies (hopefully YOURS). It LIGHTS me up to create memories for couples on their VERY SPECIAL day they will celebrate for the rest of their lives!
I also offer a yoga class to wedding parties the morning of the wedding or day before to help connect everyone. Your love story is what makes your day so memorable...I'd love to share that!
