Services Offered
Sarah Oswald is a licensed officiant that provides counseling and customized love stories for couples. Lead Your Love Life performs the following ceremonies:

  • Civil union
  • Interfaith ceremony
  • Non-religious ceremony
  • Rehearsal
  • Vow renewal
  • Pre-marital coaching

Many couples want their ceremony to be uniquely their own. Sarah works directly with you to create a personalized ceremony-- down to every detail. She has a deep respect for this intimate role and by the day of your marriage she will have developed such a rapport with you that it feels like she's an old friend.

You’ll start with an extensive questionnaire to get you thinking about the meaning of your union, and help isolate the elements you’d like to include in your ceremony. Sarah will take this insight into your partnership and weave into your ceremony script in the form of a love story.

Next, she will send you a draft of your personalized ceremony document. For example, ceremony elements might include: telling your love story, community vows, a ring warming, collective moment of silence, candle lighting, etc. Collaboratively, she'll work with you to hone your ceremony structure to perfection.

On your wedding day, you can relax and leave the details for Sarah to worry about. All you will have to think about is showing up, being present for one another and enjoying the process!

    Before planning our wedding, we had a fairly concrete vision set for our ceremony. To give an idea of how specific we were, our ideal ceremony included: Chinese translation (done by our maid of honor), a tea ceremony, Christian elements, an emphasis on our personal values, community thank-yous and our dog bringing us our rings! Sarah refined our initial ideas and made the ceremony really shine with a carefully crafted process. First, she sent us a survey with questions that let us reflect on our relationship, our feelings for each other and our community. She then put together a ceremony draft together that we collaboratively edited. Sarah also made sure to meet up with us several times in person to go through any questions we might have. Besides the ceremony writing process, Sarah has a unique presence which makes her a natural public speaker. Thank you for making our wedding day wonderful!

    My wife and I searched for months for a premarital counselor and officiant that seemed to be in sync with people, nature, and the greater spirit. Near the end of our ability to search, we found Sarah and were whole! We have met with Sarah for premarital counseling over multiple video chat sources, phone calls, and in person, all effortlessly because Sarah is very flexible and accommodating. Sarah has encouraged us to truly search our feelings for each other and has helped us to realize the depth of love we share. By discovering this, we are more compassionate, present minded, and forward thinking, and we can serve each other for each other. We learned the value and importance of big and small community, and we couldn’t be better prepared for marriage.

    We wanted a unique ceremony and got nothing less. Sarah came to us with a beautiful framework that we continued to collaborate on along with my sister, who performed the ceremony. By all our powers, we created an inspiring piece that wove together our community in our love and transformed that riverside into our temple. Seriously all of our guests commented about how they never cry at weddings but were just so touched by ours that they shed tears!

    We believe Sarah is servicing the world through her calling to bring couples and communities together in companionship and celebration, and we can’t recommend her more highly.

    Sarah Lila offers a great service that more people need to talk about when heading into their new life together. Yes she can marry you for your ceremony but there is so much more that should be looked at before you reach that special day to ensure you're on the best path possible to success in marriage and life. We do tons of research before committing to a car, house and even a meal these days, so why not ask Sarah Lila for her professional perspective when it comes to your biggest commitment: Love?
