Our Story

People ask Lori why she became a wedding officiant. Here’s the story, short and sweet. She had friends looking for a Rabbi to perform a marriage ceremony for them and could not find one because they were a same-sex couple. They asked if she would become ordained because she knew the Jewish rituals and believes that love is love. That was Lori’s first ceremony in 2011.

“As a wedding officiant, I create and perform joyful, meaningful, and personalized non-denominational wedding ceremonies for ALL.
I am also a romantic at heart and I love love!!” ~ Lori

What Our Couples Are Saying

  • Valerie & Samantha

    “Lori not only exceeded our expectations, but she brought our guests and us to tears with her beautiful ceremony. Being a same-sex couple, finding the perfect officiant was very important to us. Lori made us feel special and welcomed, and she was able to perfectly capture our story, values, and love for each other. With her artistic writing, unique personality, and even random check-ins after marriage, I don't think you'll ever find a better officiant!"
