Personable, genuine, and dedicated
We haven’t had our ceremony yet but I’m already impressed! Lori is thorough and she makes the stress of planning a wedding fall away. She is quick to respond and made time for a consult right away. It’s already a pleasure working with her and we are more than ecstatic to have her officiate our wedding!Sent on 07/18/2019

Made my wedding perfect
Lori is an amazing person, she takes the time to get to know you personally. She was not just our ordained minister but now I'm proud to say she is my friend.Sent on 09/11/2019
Memories to Last a Lifetime's reply:Connections are important for me. We chat on the phone, text, email to be sure the service & scripting is perfect for the couple but also the guests. We want the guests to be wowed & feel the words we chose to use.

The Best We Could Have Found
Lori made our special day so personal and so loving. She’s an expert at what can be and should be and helped us design the perfect ceremony. She has the rare gift of seeming like an old friend the first time you meet her, and for us that went a very long way to feeling comfortable with using her services.Sent on 07/30/2019

Party of Two
Oh my yes I definitely recommend Lori as a wedding officiant. We decided spur of the moment to elope. I googled local wedding officiants and found Lori. She was quick to respond and communicated with us all week. We headed for a scenic state park with plans to get married outdoors. Well cold rainy windy weather had other plans. Up to one hour prior to our wedding we had no plan B. A few earthly angels intervened and we exchanged vows in a 1907 historic home surrounded by art and period furnishings. It was cozy intimate and perfect. Lori wrote beautiful vows for us .....no one had a dry eye during the ceremony. I only spent an hour with Lori that day but she will forever be part of our special elopement memories filled with lovely rain and many sweet surprises !!!Sent on 04/23/2019
Memories to Last a Lifetime's reply:It was my pleasure. You two have a great story and I enjoyed the mystery of finding the right spot and it certainly was. I’m not a master photographer but loved making magic with the shots we captured.

Lori did an amazing job in very short notice. I feel like she really wanted to provide us with the right ceremony for us. She took time to get to know our family and what makes us tick. She gave wonderful suggestions while allowing us to make the decisions. We worked well together and the end result was beautiful. I even had guests tell me that it was the most beautiful ceremony they had ever been to. Many thanks.Sent on 06/03/2018

Lori was amazing, she was the officiant for my wedding on March 24th 2018. Of course living in central IL you never know how the weather will play out. We had a crazy snow storm and she was still there on top of everything making sure everything would be perfect. I loved how much she cared about my husband and myself. I highly recommend her for your future service. I am beyond blessed in getting the opportunity in meeting her and having her be the one to marry me and my best friend.Sent on 04/10/2018
Thank you for everything Lori!
Memories to Last a Lifetime's reply:I met this woman and our connection was amazing. All I could focus on was making sure those two had the perfect service. We survived a snow storm and calmly tended to details to host an incredible wedding. I love this couple. They are an example of the bonding that occurs with those one or two

Lori was by far the best officiant I could have ever asked for! From the very beginning, she worked with us and asked for our preferences on style and sent many different options for the readings which we were able to edit as we saw fit. The day of the wedding she was very calm and collected, allowing us to be stress free. She is very personable and caring, which shows in her presence. We loved Lori, and would recommend her to everyone!Sent on 12/12/2017

Working with Lori was a pleasure. She did everything exactly how I wanted it and also had great ideas on how to make our ceremony more personal. She was very professional and you can tell she knows what she’s doing when it comes to officiating. I’d recommend her to anyone getting married.Sent on 10/23/2018

Planning the ceremony with Lori was by-far the easiest and most low-stress part of coordinating our wedding. She is affordable and brilliant at what she does. We didn't even need a rehearsal--we felt so confident and prepared. She guided us through every detail and aspect of the process and was flexible with the script so that we could fit in our own unique voices on our special day. My husband and I asked for lots of non-traditional ceremony changes (walk the aisle together, circular guest seating, absence of a bridal party, etc) and Lori is such a professional! She was unphased and worked with us to write a ceremony that would be perfect for us! Don't hesitate of contact her if you're looking for someone reliable and experienced!Sent on 09/28/2017
