    Wonderful!

    Diane is amazing! She did our small COVID wedding and our actual wedding and she is a straight delight to work with, highly recommend!

    Lyrical Life Ceremonies's reply:

    I loved working with you, too! I don't often get a chance to work with couples two years in a row, but that has happened several times now, as couples put together the gathering they had hoped to have a year ago. I loved all the special touches.

    Wonderful experience!

    I hired Diane to help my husband and I prepare for our September 2021 wedding vow renewal. I found her through the Life Celebrant Institute website, but she also happened to be on our venue's preferred vendor list. We initially did a small backyard wedding during COVID lockdown in September 2020 and then did a large reception a year later, where we renewed our vows. I wasn't sure how to make the second ceremony unique under the circumstances - I knew I wanted our guests to still feel like they were at a wedding but didn't want to do the same thing all over again, and Diane was such a huge help with making that a reality. She was kind, patient, and thoughtful with her input on the flow and contents of the script. She also was diligent with getting drafts back to us after each conversation/editing session, and I appreciated the research she did to understand our stories and traditions. Ultimately, we decided to have someone else besides her officiate the wedding (something we had been back and forth about since the beginning), which was nothing against her as an orator or person, and she was very understanding. All the time and effort spent working with her was still very worthwhile - she asked us questions that we never would have asked ourselves, which created a different/better outcome than it would have been otherwise, and the vow-renewal ceremony was so special. I would definitely recommend Diane.

    Wonderful every step of the way - despite the pandemic!

    We reached out to Diane for our June wedding ceremony because we remembered she'd done an incredible job for my sister Genevieve in 2014. Working with Diane was a joy every step of the way - despite any interruptions from the pandemic this year! We met with Diane well ahead of the event and went over some of the most important stories of our relationship. She helped us craft the perfect wedding ceremony for us, and took great care in all of the best details from our stories. She helped us find inspiration for our vows, and we had gone through all the details of the ceremony well ahead of the date. When COVID caused us to downsize our 125 person wedding to a much smaller gathering of 15 people, Diane didn't miss a beat and helped us adjust the ceremony to fit the smaller crowd. With her help it was still a wonderful celebration despite the restrictions! We can't wait to work with Diane for a bigger event in 2021, and can't recommend her highly enough!

Excellent officiant who takes the time to personalize each ceremony and tell the story of how the couple met and fell in love. Also very photo-savvy, in that she knows exactly where to stand and how to move about the space to make sure your photographer gets stunning shots. Highly recommended!
