Chris Turner of Lyssabeth's Wedding Officiants gave us exactly what we wanted for our ceremony! They are quick to respond, easy to work with and made our small and intimate ceremony so personal. This is a great option for the non-church wedding and I would definitely recommend them!Sent on 11/03/2011
Blue Sky Elopements's reply:Chris is a pro. Thanks for your ringing endorsement!

We had a wonderful time working with Lyssabeth's Wedding Officiants. Their website has lots of great information, Maureen (the owner) is extremely knowledgeable, their administrative staff is highly professional, and our officiant, Vicky, worked closely with us to make sure our vows were just right for us. Everyone loved the ceremony and commented on how beautiful it was. Lyssabeth's made sure our ceremony was the most memorable and least stressful part of our wedding.Sent on 09/13/2011

Heather · Married on 09/05/2011
We chose Vicky to officiate our wedding, and we couldn't be happier because we had an amazing wedding ceremony! We chose Lyssabeth's because we wanted the ceremony to reflect our personalities instead of that of a religous figure or a judge. Lyssabeth's helped us write a custom ceremony that had everyone in the crowd in tears. Vicky was extremely professional, responsive and perfect for our wedding. Highly recommended!Sent on 11/10/2011

We worked with Jenn B. She was fantastic! She helped us through the process and to create exactly the customized ceremony we were looking for. She was very flexible, responsive, and a great calming effect through the process as well as on the day of.Sent on 10/31/2009
The only drawback in our eyes was the cost of going through the service....however, after much looking, she was truly the one we felt the best connection with and that we would be happy with having officiate for our day.
Blue Sky Elopements's reply:Thanks for your thoughtful words! We do pride ourselves on keeping stress and the bride as far apart form each other as possible on the wedding day. And yes, Jenn is a pro at that. And I'm willing to bet she kept you smiling,

Maggie did a great job with my wedding. She did everything we asked for and then some. The only thing we heard from our guest was that she was hard to hear we had an outside reception with 80 people. But standing right in front of her she was great. The only people who really needed to hear her did. Thanks for a wonderful ceremony.Sent on 10/03/2009
Blue Sky Elopements's reply:Thanks for your kind words. I just want to clarify that I believe your officiant was Megan Riley, as we don't have a Maggie on our officiating staff. (As long as she got YOUR names correctly, that's really all that matters!) I'm delighted (although not surprised) that you felt Megan to be a good fit. She exudes a warmth and sensitivity toward her couples that is unrivaled.

We used Lyssabeth's and Rachel Preston was our officiant. Rachel was great to work with and very flexible in helping us put together the perfect service. We knew right away when we met her that she was the perfect fit for us and our wedding. Everything went as planned and it was a great ceremony.Sent on 01/30/2009
Blue Sky Elopements's reply:Rachel serves our Rocky Mountain area and she tends to get as excited about weddings as the bride herself! I'm so pleased that her work for you made your day picture-perfect.

Our officiant Jenn was fantastic! She was very animated, calm, and encouraging. After our ceremony we got tons of compliments. It turned out very heart-felt and beautiful. It really fit us.Sent on 01/16/2008
Blue Sky Elopements's reply:Yea! We LOVE it when you get compliments on the ceremony. Thanks for sharing your good news.
Hannah · Married on 09/10/2016
We are interfaith so wanted our ceremony to represent us as a couple. Bill really worked with us to make this ceremony "ours" and to incorporate both religions. The whole process was great and we are really happy with Lyssabeth's!Sent on 11/21/2016

Kelly · Married on 09/06/2015
We selected Lyssabeth's Colorado Wedding Officiants because my fiance and I were specifically interested in a secular wedding ceremony. We loved working with Bill Miller and enjoyed getting to know him for an hour at his home....we also loved the ability to personalize our wedding ceremony! He provided an entire menu of options for our opening words, blessing, and exchange of rings and it was the perfect balance of selecting something that felt meaningful to us, while also not having to write the entire ceremony ourselves! Bill has a great speaking voice and he was professional and encouraging throughout the entire ceremony. I would recommend this service to anyone!Sent on 10/05/2015
Blue Sky Elopements's reply:Kelly--Bill Miller is one of our most popular officiants--and for a good reason. He's got a fabulous speaking voice along with a way of keeping stress at bay in even the most stressful of situations. I'm thrilled to hear that he helped make your wedding day all that you envisioned it to be. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Maureen

Outstanding professional service with an extra-special personal touch!! Dana Bevis officiated our ceremony and she was phenomenal. We couldn't be more pleased.Sent on 10/02/2015

Brenda · Married on 09/17/2011
Lesley was a pleasure to work with. She was very personable and calm through all of our work before the wedding and - especially - at the ceremony. She helped us understand all the possibilities of a wedding ceremony, gave us much material from which to choose and, in the end, was very respectful of our "simple, casual" desires.Sent on 10/11/2011
We’re both very grateful for her patience with the back-n-forth of writing our ceremony and for her flexibility in allowing our personalities to be in the forefront of our wedding. We have received several compliments on our ceremony and that’s largely owing to Lesley’s willingness to know and understand who we are and what we wanted from a wedding ceremony.
She's been a knowledgeable, calming influence before, during and after our wedding.

Vicky officiated our wedding, and she is so wonderful! She was very flexible and understanding of what we wanted. Our ceremony was beautiful; I couldn't've asked for better!Sent on 07/25/2014
Blue Sky Elopements's reply:Thanks so much for your kind words about our services. I'm a bit confused about the discrepancy between your effusive review of officiant Vicky Hampton and the Value score of 3.0! However, since you choose to remain anonymous, we have no way of addressing the situation with you directly. One can only assume that there was an expectation that the officiant be "wonderful and flexible" (i.e. giving superior quality and exceptional service) for a rock-bottom price. As with most professional services, 5.0 ratings in service, responsiveness, flexibility and professionalism do not come with bargain pricing. Our prices fall in the mid-range of professional officiants in the area and considering our track record, we feel that offers the highest of values.

This package was perfect for us. We didn't want the 'big wedding' and only invited immediate family. The process was explained clearly and everything went smoothly on the day. We loved our photographer Meo, she knew what she wanted and it suited us well, we even got to recreate some of my husband's parents wedding photos, which was wonderful. Thanks for everything.Sent on 11/26/2013

Kimberly was our officiant and she was wonderful! She was so much fun to work with and the ceremony was beautiful! We were very pleased with how everything turned out. The price was a little high for what we were expecting, but it was worth it!Sent on 11/17/2007
Blue Sky Elopements's reply:Yes, Kim always gets rave reviews. Thank you for yours. In terms of price, our fees are about average for officiants in the area. And I agree that a professional wedding officiant is well worth the money. There are so many ins and outs to performing a ceremony well--especially if something unexpected occurs--and it's nice to know you're in good hands from start to finish.

Nicole & Jordan · Married on 09/04/2011
Our wedding was officiated by Dana. She was easy to communicate with and very enthusiastic about our wedding. I liked that she incorporated "us" into the ceremony, even though it was just a basic script with pre-written vows. She did a nice job during the ceremony, but did stumble over her words once or twice. The best part was how easy going she was about starting the ceremony late. I had forgotten the marriage license and asked one of my bridesmaids to go get it for us. Dana was so sweet about the whole thing and said it was no problem at all. She was also really good about directing us. I was nervous about when I should start walking and she talked me through everything to assuage my concerns. Overall, we were quite pleased with Dana.Sent on 09/13/2011

Read your contract before signing. They will not go above and beyond without charging you additional fees. Also, virtually all communication is done through email. Charged us additional fees after we changed our venue due to weather and we took care of everything besides calling the vendors. You are better off making the arrangements yourself and not having to incur additional fees when you need to make changes last minute. The vendors, however, were great.Sent on 04/20/2016
Blue Sky Elopements's reply:When clients become verbally abusive, we have 2 options--immerse ourselves in the drama or take the road of integrity. We choose the latter--getting into it with abusive clients drains us of positive energy…and well…who needs that?
lynette · Married on 09/14/2017
Buyer Beware!***** At first Maureen was helpful, but when we considered how important wedding pictures were, my daughter requested websites of the photographers Maureen uses. On her website she said we would have a LIST of preferred vendors to choose from. The more my daughter pushed for the info, the more agitated Maureen became, and the harder she was to connect with! I suspected something, so I did some research and discovered the reason..WHY.... The photographer we were assigned, just happened to be Maureen's husband...Jeremy. Talk about no integrity and a CONFLICT of Interest.. Once I figured that out, I looked at his website and was not impressed with his photography skills.Sent on 02/24/2018
However, the makeup and hair girl, the flowers, and Preacher Bob were wonderful and produced great products. SO, it just boils down to, HOW important are wedding photos to you.
Blue Sky Elopements's reply:When a bride’s mom insists on making the arrangements, I need to issue an immediate refund &, cancel the contract. I didn't do that with this duo & that was a huge mistake. I’ll own that.

We loved the ceremony that our officiant, provided to us by Lyssabeth's Wedding Officiants, had written up for us! It reflected our values that we had discussed with Bill. We made it very clear to him that we did not any religious references in our ceremony. He told us that, though he was religious, he respected that and would oblige. The ceremony that we had agreed upon did not have any religious references.Sent on 10/26/2014
However, at the end of our ceremony, after Bill had pronounced us husband and wife and we walked up the aisle, he asked our entire audience to join him in asking for God's blessing over our union and then proceeded in prayer.
This is EXTREMELY disrespectful, offensive, and unprofessional!!!!!!
I would never recommend Lyssabeth's Wedding Officiants due to the disgusting disrespect that we were shown by them.
Blue Sky Elopements's reply:You also brought this to my attention in a personal email. I understand that you are angry and upset. We pride ourselves in making sure our couples don't receive any unwelcome surprises in their ceremony script. To be honest, when I first read your email, my first thought was that you must be mistaken in some way. That is how positive I was that none of my officiants would violate our company policy of adhering to the couple's expressed values when performing a ceremony.
velina · Married on 03/07/2010
We had our wedding in Carmel California and Stacy was our officiant. We were disappointed with the service we received for a few reasons. The reasons include Stacy’s belly showing and mispronouncing my name during our ceremony! She also left part 26B of our marriage certificate blank- causing us the hassle to connect with the county clerk and have it fixed. I regret using them!Sent on 05/26/2010
Blue Sky Elopements's reply:It's never a good thing when a client is unhappy with our services (but we do appreciate the high marks for responsiveness). Fortunately, it's a rare occurrence for us, as evidenced by our other reviews. This situation was fraught with inconsistencies and lack of communication, so it was very difficult to get to the bottom of the problem. We have photos of the wedding showing the officiant as wearing appropriate attire (no midriff-baring clothes are EVER allowed!) so I'm not clear on that reference. We also tried repeatedly to ascertain the problem with the marriage license (which item was incomplete) but clarification from the couple was never provided. All in all, it was a rather frustrating situation for all concerned. Clearly this bride had complaints and we did make every effort to resolve them, but in the end, we simply issued a partial refund rather than waste any more of the couple's time or ours in trying to sort out the situation.
