My husband and I could not be happier with the officiant services Shari provided for our wedding. We originally selected a family friend to perform the ceremony - however this fell through unexpectedly. We contacted Shari and she immediately calmed our nerves with finding a suitable replacement. She was extremely flexible throughout the entire pre-wedding process - including setting up an initial face-to-face consultation and responding to my many questions ranging from marriage license info to ceremony wording via email from myself and my husband. I should also note that she is very prompt with her responses!
Shari was absolutely AWESOME at the ceremony rehearsal. She was able to keep all of the rowdy bridal party and family members engaged enough to keep the rehearsal under 45 minutes, which included practicing the whole ceremony a few times. We were so impressed with her knowledge and confidence. The wedding day went perfectly. We received numerous compliments from our guests on how much they loved her delivery and personality during the ceremony.
When I was searching for officiants myself, I found it necessary to understand the personality of the individual - they are going to be a part of the biggest day of your life! I so appreciated Shari's willingness to meet with us before we committed to signing a contract. I would agree with all of the other reviewers that Shari is the absolute best. We have been to many other weddings in the Cleveland area - none of the officiants have lived up to the job that Shari has done for our wedding. I would recommend her to couple!
Such wonderful service ! Replied back to my messages in a timely manner, performed great wedding service and even traveled in snowy conditions to make my special day possible! I highly recommend.
Shari was nothing short of amazing, I contacted her very short notice and she pulled off an incredible ceremony for me and my husband. She was profesional yet personable, knowledgeable and prepared to help in any way! I would recommend her 150%!
I originally saw Shari officiate my sister’s wedding and I knew right there that I wanted her to do mine also! Shari was so quick to respond to my emails with all my questions. I loved how I was able to customize the wording for my ceremony and make it more personal to my fiancé and I. Shari also came to the rehearsal and was very helpful in getting everyone organized and more comfortable with knowing where to go on the day of the wedding. I am very happy that we choose Shari to be apart of our day!
Shari was wonderful! We felt very comfortable with her, as did our guests. She worked with us to incorporate the elements that we wanted in our wedding. My husband is Irish Catholic, so we had his neice read an Irish prayer. I am Jewish, so my nephew read a Jewish prayer. It was wonderful! Thank you Shari❣️
We worked with Chelsea and Shari, they were both so amazing and went above and beyond to help us! We highly recommend them both! Will miss working with them
Shari was wonderful to work with. She quickly responded to all of our e-mails and answered all our questions. The day of the wedding, she arrived early to review the ceremony and make sure we did not need anything. Shari was able to personalize our ceremony using questionnaires we filled out. All of our guests raved about the ceremony and said it was the best wedding they have ever been to. We highly recommend Celebrations by Shari for every wedding.
Shari was extremely helpful and hands-on with our planning process! She provided extensive materials to help construct the ceremony content and was prompt with her feedback. The day came together beautifully, and with Shari's professionalism, warmth and spirit we knew we had nothing to worry about. I would highly recommend you consider services as we had the best experience!

Shari was extremely accommodating, personal and professional
When Kevin and I decided we wanted a unique and meaningful ceremony we knew we needed to find an experienced officiant that would be able to offer us ideas and guidance. After the first meeting with Shari we knew we found the right person. Her sweet and bubbly personality and her willingness to help us create our perfect ceremony was exactly what we were looking for. Immediately after signing a contract Shari sent us page after page of wording options and ideas. It was a little overwhelming but it gave us plenty of opportunities to make selections and tweak it to truly make it our own. Shari met with us to make sure that every detail was discussed and she had a good idea of how we envisioned our ceremony. Sheri's attention to detail, her ability to take charge and get our bridal party down to business at the rehearsal, and her wonderful demeanor, made our ceremony the best it could have ever been. We thank her for all of her help and highly recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant to help you plan the ceremony of your dreams.
Shari did an amazing job with our wedding ceremony. We could not have asked for our wedding to turn out better. Shari was on the top of her game as soon as she arrived at our rehearsal. Even though she had not performed a ceremony at our venue before, after a very brief exchange with our venue coordinator, Shari was able to put our wedding party in correct places and being our walk-through. The day of Shari arrived early and was ready to go. She did an absolute amazing job with delivery of the ceremony we picked out. We were initially hesitant on paying for an officiant, and after going back and forth, we decided it was the best direction for us to go in. I am so glad we made that decision. The professionalism provided by Shari throughout the whole process was more than we could have asked for. Highly recommend.
Our experience with Shari was exceptional on all accounts. She made the entire process so simple, and our special day flawless! I absolutely have no hesitation in recommending her no matter how simple or elaborate your wedding plans are.
We would highly recommend Shari and her services. She is hrlpful, knowledgeable and efficient. The ceremony was so personal and Shari fit in like one of the family!
Beyond my expectations! We wanted a small intimate backyard ceremony and Shari delivered. My guests talked about the ceremony and I have already had two people ask for contact information for their upcoming weddings. My now mother inlaw, thought it would a quick I do and is still talking about how nice the ceremony was and how the wording made it feel extra special.
Shari was prompt in returning my calls and texts. She was professional and put us both at ease immediately. I could go on and on, but in short, you will not be disappointed, book your wedding with Shari, no matter how big or small, Shari and Brian will make it everything you imagine and probably even more.
Brian was great to work with! He was thorough, professional, and so so nice. Highly recommend!
Shari was AMAZING. She was always there with open arms to help answer anything I needed during the entire time we spoke. She showed up early and gave us a beautiful ceremony. I would reccommend her to anyone!
Shari is the consummate professional. She helped make our special day completely perfect. She helped guide us in the right direction from start to finish. She helped us when writing our own vows and when choosing the proper wording for our ceremony. Our day would not have gone as smoothly without Shari there to guide us. I would recommend her to anyone looking to get married. She is the best!
Shari was absolutely amazing for our short ceremony. The communication and professionalism were point while at the same time she was laid back and flexible (especially with our non-traditional Dr. Suess style vows)! We were instantly comfortable working with her and we are more than extatic with our decision! I would recommend her to anyone searching for a non-denominational officiant!! Simply amazing!! (and she makes a keepsake folder of your ceremony wording for you...such a great touch!)
Shari is amazing! We had to plan a wedding within a short period of time along with moving into a new house and the holidays. It was very overwhelming, but Shari kept us on track and made sure whatever we were concerned about was addressed. She really works with you and gives you all the resources you need to make it your own special ceremony. It was important to have my daughter included in our wedding. Shari really helped out a lot when it came to the wording choices and things to that nature. We would highly recommend Shari, you will not be disappointed!
It can be intimidating to hire anyone off the internet when it comes to your wedding. Having Shari officiate our wedding was one of our best decisions, though! She was so awesome to work with for every step. We had a unique procession and wanted to include a sand ceremony, and she made everything flow smooth and it looked perfect. I couldn’t imagine anyone else officiating our wedding! Thanks, Shari!
Rev. Sheri is THE BEST! We're a year out from our wedding and she is checking in to see if we have questions to make our ceremony perfect. She has several options to choose from so that our ceremony best fits us. She was by far the easiest vendor we booked! Thanks for everything so far!
Thank you! You are so kind and I am honored to be able to help you create an amazing wedding!
We contacted Shari after searches and also finding out a collegue used her. Shari wasn't available for our day but instead had a few other officiants she works with that were available. We chose Brian to perform our ceremony however Shari stayed involved, including looking over the wording for the ceremony. Brian worked seamlessly with the wedding coordinator for our venue, was professional, and he consistently made sure to ask everyone in the wedding party if there were any questions. He (and Shari) were responsive throughout the process, available for whatever questions we had and also patient with us as we drug our feet finalizing details. Brian and Celebrations by Shari absolutely contributed to a perfect day for us and we would highly reccomend them to anyone!
She made our ceremony perfect! She was so kind, well spoken, and just a warm and enthusiastic person. Everyone kept asking me after the ceremony where I found such an amazing individual to be our wedding officiant & I hope this review will help future couples make a great decision & use Shari for the big day!! She was very flexible, punctual, super fast with responding to my bazillion questions, and made the entire process of planning the ceremony a piece of cake. My husband and I would definitely recommend Shari to anyone who needs a wedding officiant!!
Thanks Shari you made our big day perfect!!
