    The best, EVER!

    Simply put, Sarah from Lead Your Love Life was the officiant of all officiants. The word “officiant” almost doesn’t even really capture all that Sarah puts into working with each and every individual and unique couple. In fact, people kept asking me after the ceremony, “who was that INCREDIBLE friend of yours who officiated your wedding??? She was so lovely, personal, kind, touching, etc….” Everyone was always SHOCKED when I said I found her online!

    I chose Sarah to marry my husband and I because from the time I found her website, I absolutely loved how unique and different the experience was! It wasn’t a simple cut and dry wedding speech, deliver and done. Sarah works with each couple to get to know them, reaches out to their community of friends and family to collect personal and meaningful words, learns what is important to each couple, really listens when you express what you want your day to be, and even coaches you through the entire process! Let’s face it, wedding planning can be stressful, and most people are navigating and planning an event they’ve never planned before. Sarah really felt there for us every step of the way.

    I never really understood when people used to say their wedding was the best day of their lives, but with Sarah’s help, this was 100% true for me. The ceremony was so beautiful and personal – it was probably the happiest I had ever been in my entire life, and Sarah was a driving and central force behind why. She worked with us to craft the PERFECT wedding in every way and make sure it was everything we ever wanted. Not only did she deliver on this, she went above and beyond with her own unique touches and glowing and kind heart and personality.

    I didn’t see Sarah as a “vendor” at my wedding… Sarah was there as a cherished guest and kindred spirit. She was crucial in making our day perfect, and I will always be grateful to her for that. Any couple who has been married by Sarah knows how incredibly lucky they are, and I feel like one day she will be this incredibly famous person with waitlists years long for her services. I am so grateful I got to have her there with me and my husband in the happiest moment of our lives.

    Oh my goodness, dear Stephanie— you are a GEM. Thank you for this marvelous review! I am honored and touched and so moved reading it. Officiating for you and Peter was a major highlight of my 2019. Together you both really shine and I so much enjoyed getting to you know two and being part of your special day. I am thrilled it really WAS the best day of your life! And I wish for you to encounter even better days in the years ahead. All my love and appreciation to you both!

    Sarah is magical!

    Sarah was incredible. Warm, inviting - and deeply thorough in her process. She took the time to know us as a couple, and made our wedding everything it could be, and more.

    If you're looking for a true professional - someone unafraid to challenge your notion of marriage, commitment, and the systems that drive a healthy union - Sarah is unreservedly the officiant for you!

    Thanks again, Sarah. We loved having you guide us through this journey, keeping us engaged/positive/playful and curious. We'll never forget it! Cheers!
