Amy and Bob Vezina, June 2019 Lauren made us feel completely comfortable right from the beginning. She fully explained the ceremony planning process in thorough detail. She intentionally took time to get to know our preferences and expectations. Lauren has excellent organizational and time management skills. She is professional, arrives early and is always prepared.
Lauren created the most beautiful, elegant, customized, meaningful arrangement of words for the entirety of our wedding ceremony. We received many compliments on our ceremony from our guests, some of which said it was the best ceremony they'd ever witnessed.
Life isnt always perfect, even on your wedding day. Unfortunately we received some upsetting information just hours before our wedding ceremony. Lauren acknowledged the situation and then she took action. Lauren was able to bridge a gap that seemed impossible during a pivotal moment right before the wedding ceremony. She performed a sort of impromptu spiritual realigning that allowed us to reclaim our sacred day. It was from that moment that we were able to create a night of wonderful memories, which we will remember as the best day of our lives.
Mary and Vivian Reid, June 2019 We feel so lucky that we found Lauren to help and guide us in our preparation for marriage. Planning the first queer wedding in our Catholic families was no small task, but we immediately felt Lauren would be able to help us determine exactly what we wanted and what would make our wedding ceremony special for us. Being able to create our ceremony with the experience and insight from Lauren was our favorite part of the wedding planning process! We were able to build a relationship with her through pre-marital counseling sessions, which made her marrying us feel so much more personal. Through our therapy sessions we gained skills in communication by talking through our goals and visions for our married life together, and we were also given space to air our grievances with the wedding planning process. Overall, we felt more than ready for our wedding when the day came, and our ceremony is something that felt so unique and special to us. We received so many compliments specifically about the ceremony well after the wedding! You can't find a better officiant!

Mary and David Rogawski: October, 2017 "Dear Lauren, thank you for everything you did to help us create our wedding ceremony! It was absolutely perfect- and fit our personalities and beliefs just the way we imagined. The ceremony was definitely our favorite part of the wedding and will forever be special to us! We loved working with you- thank you for your guidance, patience, and beautiful spirit."
Monica Vatalaro and McKenna Hynes: October, 2017 "Just as we felt we were the only ones for each other, Lauren felt like the only one who could marry us. We knew Lauren on a personal level. We knew she was kind, genuine, and ever present with the people she was with. We knew she had the ability to connect with everyone we loved and we knew she was the person we wanted walking us through our commitment to each other. In the end, we could not have imagined a more beautiful ceremony, an easier process, or anyone else who could have created what we imagined. Through the whole process she asked important questions, she knew what our concerns were, knew what our commitment meant, spoke to us with wisdom and perspective that we didn't have. At the same time she heard everything we had to say, Lauren never missed a beat. Lauren was well beyond our expectations, which are always high! Weeks after the ceremony, she was still showing up. Not invasive, not overly involved, just casually there checking to see how we were doing. Still overwhelming our expectations. McKenna and I have talked about calling Lauren throughout our relationship with our successes and our struggles. It is my hope and my desire that Lauren is always in our life, a part of our marriage, and always helping guide our way."
