    Working with Larissa was very easy and pleasant. She was responsive to emails and did a great job of writing up the ceremony. It was exactly what we wanted - warm, sentimental and even funny at times.

    Thanks Larissa for being the perfect celebrant!!

    Highly recommend Larissa if you are looking for a celebrant for your wedding ceremony. My husband and I recently got married in Central Park at the ‘Treehouse for Dreaming.’ We organised everything from the UK and were so happy to find Larissa who was super helpful and gave us lots of advice and recommendations to make sure we had the perfect day 💖😍!

    Larissa made our ceremony perfect! We wanted a lighthearted and warm ceremony and Larissa did just that! She was able to add all personal touches and truly make our ceremony unique. She is such a sweetheart and was so easy to work with and very organized. Thank you again Larissa!

    With less than a week to plan, Larissa created the most amazing ceremony for us in Central Park. We were very last minute with planning because it was a spur of the moment decision. But we gave her a little background about us & she whipped up a personalized ceremony that included our love story. She recommended a great spot with the aesthetics that made for beautiful pictures. Right by the water, with the bridge behind, the sun hit us at the right spot where it felt like we were the only people on this earth and nothing else mattered. Couldn’t thank her enough. Highly recommend!

    Ceremony perfection

    Having Larissa marry us was the easiest and best decision we made. From our very first phone conversation, we knew she was the one to marry us. Besides her incredible accent, she took her time explaining what a celebrant is/does, the process involved that she takes her clients through and answered any and all questions we had.

    We knew we wanted our ceremony to be intimate and have our guests feel the incredible love and authentic happiness that we had for each other and Larissa did that and more! Throughout the planning process, Larissa got to know us both as individuals and as a couple. Getting to know who we were, what our story was, and other details about our lives, helped Larissa write an amazing and incredibly touching ceremony script. She captured and told our love story perfectly and even made guests who never shed a tear cry!

    We may have only known Larissa for a short time while planning the wedding, but it was as if she was our closest friend. Two months later, our guests are still talking about how incredible and sentimental our ceremony was and how they wished they knew Larissa when they had gotten married.

    We still keep in touch with Larissa and plan to in the future. She truly cares about you and treats your wedding as if it was her own. We cannot thank her enough for making our wedding day and the planning process for the ceremony so memorable. You will not regret choosing Larissa to officiate your ceremony!! She is genuine and professional and incredible at what she does. Your ceremony may only be a small portion of your wedding day, but it is the most important moment of that day and Larissa will ensure that it will be unique, personal, and beyond what you could even envision so that it is perfection.

    It was wonderful to work with Larissa. She was very easy going and totally flexible. We really wanted to personalize our ceremony and she could not have been more accomodating. Whether you want something religious or not, traditional or not, Larissa can make it happen. She contributed great ideas and guided us through every step of the process. We wanted to saber champagne as a unity ceremony, which is a bit outside the box, but she was totally game. We also really appreciated the fact that Larissa took care of all the paperwork involved with getting the marraige license, which gave us one less thing to worry about.

    Larissa was an absolute pleasure to work with. She brought our intimate Brooklyn wedding to life with the delivery of the speech she had prepared. The process of discussing what it was we wanted the tone of our ceremony to be was effortless and she immediately understood what it was we wanted. Larissa is extremely professional and organized. I knew we were in good hands and all of our guests agreed it was one of the best ceremonies they had ever witnessed. Thank you Larissa!!

    We found Larissa on a recommendation and we cannot say enough about her. Getting Married in another country can be stressful and confusing, but Larissa was always there to answer any questions. The day itself was amazing! She made the ceremony so special for us both and we cannot recommend her enough!!

    We just tied the knot on November 12, 2017 and could not recommend Larissa more. Everything about wedding planning and the day of is hectic but every experience we had with Larissa was lovely. Our ceremony was personal and really reflected who we are! our guests were saying they wanted to get married again just so Larissa could officiate! Our ceremony was funny, lighthearted yet meaningful and sentimental, exactly as we requested. Larissa was beyond personable, friendly and super responsive. I really felt like she put thought and heart into our ceremony. She even recommended a place for us to stay on our honeymoon in England and it was by far one of our favorite parts of the trip!! Ceremony and honeymoon planning in one!! We really look back on our ceremony as our favorite part of the day and we can't thank her enough for that!! She was even thoughtful enough to step out of the way during our first kiss and parts of the ceremony so it was only us in the shots and they came out amazing. She was flexible and put us at ease throughout the entire process. Ultimately your ceremony is the most important part of the day and ours was perfect and we never felt worried about it, we cant recommend her enough!

    A zillion stars for Larissa...I am the mom of the bride. Our daughters wedding was last week, and people are still talking about how SPECIAL the ceremony was, which was because of Larissa. She made the service personal, sensitive, funny and intimate, having spent time learning about the bride and groom and putting together a beautiful and meaningful ceremony. Her amazing patience, support and personal touch were top notch. The ceremony had laughter, happy tears, funny stories and touching moments. From the start, she was so easy to work with, and she really got to know the bride and groom, which made the ceremony just beautiful and heart-felt. I can't say enough about her. We were told by our guests that the service was one of the most special they had witnessed, which set off for a wonderful night of celebration. Thank you Larissa....everything was exactly as the kids had hoped for...and being the "mom" - I am grateful.

    Larissa crafted the most moving and beautiful ceremony we'd ever heard...and we couldn't have had a better time collaborating with her! She encapsulated the essence of both of us in a charming, heartfelt ceremony. She is so lovely, and she officiated with such warmth, humor and grace, all of the attendees fell in love with her as much as we did! Everyone said it was the most moving wedding they'd been to. We wish we could marry again to work with her again!

    I'd like to share the email that my new husband and I wrote to Larissa right after we returned from our honeymoon:

    Hi Larissa,

    Now that the wedding craziness has died down a bit (we just got back from Montauk, back to the real world now), we just wanted to reach out and say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding what it was. We could not be more grateful for your talent in helping us put ourselves out there (however embarrassing it might have been with my snort crying) but I know that everyone was truly touched and that it felt personal and intimate, which is exactly what we wanted. Working with you has been such a pleasure and we really could not have pulled this off without you, so thank you, thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.

    Sincerely,

    Lindsay and Chris

    ...and we meant every word!

    Couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant. Larissa was outstanding. She made our ceremony so relaxed and easy. We felt comfortable with her straight away and felt like we’d known her for years. Before our wedding was about to commence it had started raining and she was so patient and waited until the rain subsided. My husband and I could not recommend Larissa more highly. We are so grateful at how special she helped make our wedding feel especially given that we eloped. Best ever!!!!!

    We are thrilled to have chosen Larissa to officiate our wedding! Larissa was exceptional from start to finish and her sincerity, professionalism and warmth shone through right from our first conversation. She was very easy to work with and helped us to tailor a ceremony that was special and unique. As Australians holding our destination wedding in New York, we really appreciated that she was available to chat via skype. She alleviated any fears we had about holding our ceremony overseas, and we knew exactly what to expect and prepare before we arrived. It was all very simple and stress free. We have Larissa to thank for setting the tone for a beautiful occasion that we will always treasure. On our wedding day we shared a few laughs and shed a few tears, it was just perfect. Now 6 months on we still talk about our incredible officiant and how touching our elopement was due to her. Larissa, in the middle of busy NYC you made us feel like we were the only two people in the world! Thank you, we are forever grateful.

    Larissa was absolutely fantastic, and made mine and my fiancée's wedding dream days come true. We were seeking a very small ceremony with just our parents in Central Park, and Larissa guided us through the ceremony and planning with ease and expertise, and spent lots of time preparing with us so that it was tailored to exactly what we were looking for. Throughout Larissa was communicative and supportive. The ceremony itself was wonderful, and was everything we hoped for and more!

    Larissa was wonderful to work with. She is so genuine and was truly excited for our big day. She provided us with a detailed outline, and some examples to reference, that we were welcome to alter/customize until we were happy. On the day, she engaged with our family members, and made sure everyone knew their role within their ceremony. She also submitted the final paperwork, and we recieved the final certificate in the mail within two weeks.

    Thank you so much Larissa!!! You were amazing! Everybody, all the guests, said it was the best ceremony they have ever been to!

    One couple said it was better than their son's, who got married a month ago!! People couldn't believe that you made it so personal and told all these great stories and had not only us, but others crying!

    We couldn't be happier!! It was incredible! The perfect ceremony! I loved it and so happy we met!! I'll remember forever how beautiful it was!!

    Well I don't know what to say about Larissa, other than the fact she is AMAZING!!! From the get go she was so involved, and helpful. As we were getting married in New York but from the UK, Larissa gave us all the extra info we needed for the difference in cultures and what we needed to do to get our license etc. She checked in with us regularly and we feel like we really got to know Larissa during this time.
    A few months before the big day she sent us a questionnaire which she used to create such a personal and beautiful ceremony. On the day she arrived extra early and really got stuck in helping my husband and family set up the venue to make the wedding perfect.
    I've never had any regrets choosing Larissa and I really hope we stay in touch as she's such an amazing person and so passionate about being a celebrant!
    Thank you, Larissa!! James & Yasmin

    Larissa officiated our wedding this past May in NYC. She was super down to earth and we felt like we knew her for years after our first phone call. She wrote our ceremony exactly how we wanted it. It was personal and reached our family and friends in special way. She gave great suggestions on details we never would have thought of.

    Just two days before the wedding, the weather forecast called for heavy rain and wind! We had to change our outdoor location and time last minute, and Larissa went along with the changes with no problem.

    With all the stresses of wedding planning, Larissa definitely made our lives easier!

    My husband and I found Larissa more than a year ago when we were looking for wedding officiants. We are both physicians and had such limited time to plan a wedding. Larissa was an amazing officiant!!! She was in contact with us for many months prior to the wedding, and her questionnaire allowed her to get to know us very intimately. My husband and I got married almost 2 months ago...after the ceremony and for days after, everyone we knew talked about how amazing Larissa was, and how beautiful she made the ceremony. They could not believe that she met us in person for the first time on our wedding day!!!! She truly made our wedding day special. People were in tears during the ceremony and they are still talking about her now.

    We highly recommend her as your officiant! You will not regret it.

    My husband and I found Larissa through a fabulous recommendation from my coworker. We are so happy we found her! From her responsiveness to her effort put it in to our personalized ceremony, Larissa was a true professional and made the wedding process a lot less stressful. Her creative touch really made an impact on us and our guests. After our ceremony our guests could not stop raving about her. We were beyond happy and would recommend Larissa to anyone! Thank you Larissa!
