We recommend Lissin very highly to anyone looking for a wedding officiant/celebrant who is thoughtful, kind, and very skilled at crafting and leading a meaningful, personal ceremony! My partner and I are queer, and we were excited to create a wedding ritual to affirm our commitment to each other and incorporate traditions from both of our heritages. My partner is a Jewish atheist, and I have an Anglo Protestant background but am not religious. We had some general ideas about elements we wanted in a ceremony, including the seven blessings from Jewish wedding traditions, and a handfasting ceremony connected to my Celtic roots. We knew we didn't want language about god. It was important to us to work someone who could craft a ceremony that would center our deep love for each other and the commitment we're making, and also hold the complexity of our political feelings about marriage as a state-sponsored institution.
From the start, we felt like Lissin was listening closely to us, and that she understood where we were coming from. She asked thoughtful questions, shared about herself, and really took the time to get to know us. The ceremony she crafted was grounded, joyful, romantic and fun! She also lead our rehearsal with a great combination of ease and directiveness. Our friends and family said that our ceremony allowed them to get to know us in a more intimate way through the stories that Lissin shared about us. Several folks said they thought she must be an old friend of ours that they'd just never met! We are so thankful for the experience of working with Lissin, and recommend her wholeheartedly.

We could not have asked for a better officiant to marry us. Lissin was perfect for our spontaneous wedding in Pacifica (spontaneous = 4 days’ warning!). Despite the spontaneity, Lissin took the time to understand our desires and wishes and on the day, everything she said and did was exactly what we wanted + more. We could not recommend her more. Thank you so much Lissin, you’re the best.

Definitely our advice would be to book Lissin. What a wonderful woman. We had confidence in her from start to finish and were amazed at just how thoughtful and considerate she was and how well she interpreted our wishes for the ceremony, especially as we were organising our wedding from another continent. She is creative, professional and she listens. It was a pleasure to have her as our wedding officiant and we would highly recommend her
