What do our couples think of Ceremonies by Lori?

Ali & Michael

“My biggest regret is not booking with Lori sooner! Starting from most important reason – Lori was an amazing officiant. She made our ceremony special and unique to us. I get goosebumps thinking about it! It was beautiful and we still get compliments from our guests three months later. She took time to get to know us to make sure it was tailored to us and our love story. We loved how great of a job she did at making our ceremony not boring and not stuffy. You could tell that Lori truly loves what she does. Everything was seamless from beginning to end. Lori is very good at communicating during the entire process and is very organized. She was very clear on instructions on for all the legal stuff needed from my side. If you are thinking about booking Lori and team, I highly recommend it! You will not be upset! THANK YOU AGAIN, LORI!!!

We decided to have her perform a hand-fasting ceremony. She was so helpful down to the details – from helping us pick cord colors to dying them herself.

I genuinely couldn’t have imagined our day without her. My husband and family still haven’t forgotten the beautiful words she spoke at our ceremony, and I know I won’t forget them for many years to come.

Thank you, Lori. It was truly a pleasure working with you!”

“I knew I had to have Lori officiate our wedding during our initial Zoom call when she stated, “I’m not for everybody.” Lori is who she is and will not compromise that for anyone – which I LOVE. Her style isn’t school-kid giddy, so if that’s what you’re looking for in an officiant, book elsewhere. Lori is thorough, timely, professional, and creative. She’s kind-hearted, and her passion for what she does shines through during her ceremonies. She makes her couples feel empowered while guiding them through what their wedding ceremony could be.

“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!”

“10/10 would recommend Ceremonies by Lori as the officiant for your wedding. Lori puts so much time and effort into getting to know the couple and writing the ceremony. She guided us through the whole process, making us feel at ease about our ceremony. All of our guests commented on how lovely the ceremony was and what a great job Lori did. We can not thank her enough for making our day absolutely perfect!”

“When my husband proposed, there was really only one option for whom I wanted to officiate, Lori Prashker-Thomas. Lori and I grew up together many moons ago. In fact, she even lived with me over the summer one year.

Lori created an incredibly personal and customized ceremony and worked collaboratively with us to make sure we aligned at every stage of the process. Her questionnaire was very thorough and allowed us both to include things that were important to each of us.

When It came time for the wedding weekend, Lori flew 2500 miles across the country to officiate. She ran the rehearsal with efficiency. Wedding night is sort of a blur for me. BUT, I do remember clearly how she led us through our ceremony, including important parts for us (moment of silence for departed parents, breaking the glass, etc).  Lori also helped me find an interfaith Ketubah and consulted on several other pieces that weren’t really in her contract.

If you want someone who cares deeply about their couples and spends the time to truly customize your ceremony, Ceremonies by Lori is the one!!!”

Lori is AMAZING! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
I will never forget the time Lori took to make our ceremony individualized to our personal style. Lori made it ‘us’.

We were coming close to our date, and I was so unsure who to use as an officiant.  I found Lori. I looked through photos of her and just felt so connected. I saw her wearing a beautiful dress and asked she wear that dress. And she did that for me!!!  (And she looked so beautiful in the dress she wore also!)

Lori takes the time to get to know her couples. Likes, dislikes, wants, and needs. I was so impressed. My husband was impressed, and our guests raved about her! Very HIGHLY recommend Ceremonies By Lori, and Lori as an officiant!

“Lori was absolutely amazing from the first moment we reached out to her. She went above and beyond, bypassed many obstacles, and never left us out of the loop. I couldn’t have imagined having anyone else. She was not only our officiant but she became part of our family. We would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone.”

“Having Lori as the officiant at our wedding was an absolutely fantastic experience. We met with her twice before the ceremony, and she was so lovely to talk to and very knowledgeable and thorough. She mentioned things that my husband and I hadn’t even considered. Meeting her in person on the day of the ceremony was like meeting with an old friend. It was a pleasure to have Lori on our special day!”

“We knew from our first meeting with Lori that we made the right choice in having her officiate our marriage. Lori is very professional and knew exactly what we wanted. She also helped with our vows and added a special touch to them, that brought a chuckle from our guests. She took all of my fears and brought them to calm… I wish we could turn back time and do it again. Lori thank you so much. Your special touch will be forever remembered.. I highly recommend Lori. She is the best!!”

“From the announcement of our engagement to our wedding day, Lori worked with us every step of the way to ensure that we had our dream wedding. Lori was always very professional, replied to emails/texts/calls in a reasonable amount of time, and made sure that we were always ahead of our timeline to stay stress free. On our wedding day, we received many compliments on how the ceremony was truly unique and reflected us as a couple. I would recommend Ceremonies by Lori to any engaged couple who is looking to have a ceremony/wedding day that reflects who they are and truly breaks free from the “cookie cutter” mold.”

“Lori was great to us, kept contact and was responding constantly to my questions. She guided us in the marriage license process and sent out all of the paper work for us. She preformed the ceremony we requested and was catering to our wishes to keep it short and sweet. She was dog friendly (as we had our dogs present for the ceremony). I would recommend her to anyone needing officiant services!”

“Lori officiated our spur of the moment wedding. Gay marriage had just become legalized in Pennsylvania and my wife and I wanted to be married quickly in case the law changed. She came to our home and wed my wife and I with our children present. She did a wonderful job, was professional and performed a beautiful ceremony.”
