Stephen Laurie was very easy to work with. He put together a simple but elegant wedding ceremony, and he gave us advice for writing our own vows. Overall, working with him was a great experience.Sent on 07/22/2014

Stephen was such a great pleasure to work with! I think there may have been about 50 plus emails between the two of us prior to my wedding day, most of them regarding the "official stuff" and some of them were just Stephen checking in to see how we were holding up as the big day approached. Stephen delivered exactly what we requested and provided us with great advice on vows, readings etc. He arrived on time, fully prepared and his fee was very reasonable :-).Sent on 09/10/2013

Stephen was everything we wanted in an officiant. Stephen had no reservations in accommodating the non traditional ceremony that we wanted.Sent on 08/25/2013

I found Mr. Stephen Laurie through WeddingWire and couldn't have been happier with how things went. At the time of finding him, we had less than two weeks until our ceremony and I was losing hope of finding an officiant. Mr. Laurie was very open to the time crunch and within a couple of days we had the ceremony completely set up. We were able to customize it to exactly what we had wanted. He was extremely kind and our family was extremely impressed with how he conducted the ceremony. I am beyond grateful for how everything went and how open he was to the last minute booking! I would recommend Mr. Laurie to anybody in need of an officiant!Sent on 07/24/2013

We couldn't have been happier with the service Stephen provided to us not only at the wedding but in the months leading up to it. My wife and I were very hopeful that when we met Stephen for the first time (he came to meet us at a coffee shop several months before the wedding) that he'd be the type of officiant we'd want in our wedding, and he was. I got the impression he would be as involved as we'd like him to be. Through our numerous emails we traded he seemed to genuinely care that we got out of the ceremony exactly what he hoped. I specifically remember Stephen helping keep the mood light, and me from becoming too nervous, as we stood in front of everybody waiting for the bride. He interacted with the wedding parties wonderfully and I remember being asked by my grandmother how we knew him, as if he was a relative on my wife's side of the family. He interacted that well with everybody. It's for these reasons and many more that I highly recommend Stephen, we couldn't have been more pleased.Sent on 11/11/2013

I have left reviews many times prior to this, however never have I been more pleased with the services received from anyone! When we found Mr. Stephen Laurie, after months of searching and painful disappointment, we were thrilled to say the least. He began with making me feel most welcome to the fact this was all about my fiancée and myself! He asked questions and really truly listened to the answers, so much so, even I was amazed at just how well he paid attention to each and every detail without having to be told more than once! He truly made this experience all about us, the Bride and Groom. Each and every detail intertwined into the Ceremony becoming "Made For Us" and our lives together thus far! He was amazing in so many ways, in EVERY way necessary! When a couple is going to be married, they have so many things on their plate that it is difficult to keep track of many of the Wedding details. Yet, Mr Laurie made each and every step happen with ease, Beauty, and PERFECT! He sent a Mach Ceremony within a couple hours and a plethora of information which made the process all that much more simple for us, the busy couple to plan. From the moment we spoke to Mr. Stephen Laurie, to the moment we said our goodbyes, it was the most amazing, beautiful and stress free Wedding Ceremony we could have ever hoped for..... THANKS TO MR. STEPHEN LAURIE!Sent on 05/30/2013

Within 24 hours of initially contacting Stephen (through email back and forth), we had discussed details and received a sample ceremony for our review. Stephen's sample ceremony included readings we had requested as well as beautiful pieces he had suggested. Changes were made per our request and he had tips for us to flawlessly deliver our own vows. Our ceremony was small, (18 total in attendance) but absolutely beautiful and Stephen was great with my husband and I and our families. I would highly recommend him for anyone getting married. All of our guests loved him, and we were honored to have him officiant our wedding! Thank you so much!Sent on 03/18/2013

Stephen Laurie was amazing and helped to made our wedding perfect. He never responded more than 12 hours after I'd wrote to him, he wrote out our vows and ceremony perfectly. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone I know looking to get married.Sent on 03/07/2013

We contacted Stephen via email about our elopement plans and he was very prompt in responding and offering his services. Our situation was a little complicated with one of us on an aircraft carrier in San Diego and the other in the Washington DC area but Stephen was very accommodating and flexible. We appreciated his willingness to provide some choice readings that were appropriate for our ceremony and guided us through the flow of the ceremony. Stephen was very professional, articulate and prompt for our ceremony and took care of delivering the license to the Town Clerk afterwards. We would highly recommend Stephen to anyone.Sent on 10/20/2012

I highly recommend Stephen Laurie as an officiant. He was very professional, flexible and understanding. He had great respect for our needs as a couple but also knew when something wouldn't work and was not afraid to express his opinion. He was easy going, social, and he truely enjoyed his "job" in our wedding and took great pride in his part of our special day.Sent on 08/23/2012
