Wedding Officiant in 44011

Are you getting married, thinking of renewing your wedding vows or looking for someone to perform a commitment ceremony?  Do you want a special ceremony that is written specifically for the two of you? Would you like to have an officiant who will make sure your special day is done exactly the way you have dreamed of?  Then look no further!

I am a non-denominational wedding officiant/celebrant residing in Avon, Ohio. As a mobile officiant, I come to you and your venue.  Whether your ceremony is traditional or non-traditional, in a church, hotel, or garden, choose Celebrations by Shari to begin planning your new life together.

As a retired teacher of thirty years, I knew in selecting a new career it would need to be one that provided me with the same amount of joy teaching had.  I suddenly realized that weddings are a perfect source of joy to brides, grooms, families, friends, and me.  That is when I knew what the next chapters of my life should be spent doing -- working with couples to create a wedding ceremony that truly reflects who they are and the love they share. I will work hard to personalize your wedding ceremony by reflecting the love and commitment shared by the two of you . I specialize in wedding, commitment, and vow renewal ceremonies. I believe your ceremony should be a reflection of the love the two of you share.  No two couples are the same.  Therefore, each couple's wedding should be different, unique, and personal. I am able to write personal ceremonies, to suggest original ceremony ideas, and to assist you every step of the way with your wedding ceremony needs.  I recently received the Top Officiant Award for the Cleveland Hot List. Performing wedding ceremonies is my passion. Let my passion be your inspiration - together we will create a one-of-a-kind ceremony that you, your family and your friends will never forget.

Beyond my expectations! We wanted a small intimate backyard ceremony and Shari delivered. My guests talked about the ceremony and I have already had two people ask for contact information for their upcoming weddings. My now mother inlaw, thought it would a quick I do and is still talking about how nice the ceremony was and how the wording made it feel extra special. Shari was prompt in returning my calls and texts. She was professional and put us both at ease immediately. I could go on and on, but in short, you will not be disappointed, book your wedding with Shari, no matter how big or small, Shari and Brian will make it everything you imagine and probably even more.

Shari was AMAZING. She was always there with open arms to help answer anything I needed during the entire time we spoke. She showed up early and gave us a beautiful ceremony. I would reccommend her to anyone!

Shari is the consummate professional. She helped make our special day completely perfect. She helped guide us in the right direction from start to finish. She helped us when writing our own vows and when choosing the proper wording for our ceremony. Our day would not have gone as smoothly without Shari there to guide us. I would recommend her to anyone looking to get married. She is the best!

Shari was absolutely amazing for our short ceremony. The communication and professionalism were point while at the same time she was laid back and flexible (especially with our non-traditional Dr. Suess style vows)! We were instantly comfortable working with her and we are more than extatic with our decision! I would recommend her to anyone searching for a non-denominational officiant!! Simply amazing!! (and she makes a keepsake folder of your ceremony wording for you...such a great touch!)

Shari is amazing! We had to plan a wedding within a short period of time along with moving into a new house and the holidays. It was very overwhelming, but Shari kept us on track and made sure whatever we were concerned about was addressed. She really works with you and gives you all the resources you need to make it your own special ceremony. It was important to have my daughter included in our wedding. Shari really helped out a lot when it came to the wording choices and things to that nature. We would highly recommend Shari, you will not be disappointed!

Rev. Sheri is THE BEST! We're a year out from our wedding and she is checking in to see if we have questions to make our ceremony perfect. She has several options to choose from so that our ceremony best fits us. She was by far the easiest vendor we booked! Thanks for everything so far!

Thank you! You are so kind and I am honored to be able to help you create an amazing wedding!

We contacted Shari after searches and also finding out a collegue used her. Shari wasn't available for our day but instead had a few other officiants she works with that were available. We chose Brian to perform our ceremony however Shari stayed involved, including looking over the wording for the ceremony. Brian worked seamlessly with the wedding coordinator for our venue, was professional, and he consistently made sure to ask everyone in the wedding party if there were any questions. He (and Shari) were responsive throughout the process, available for whatever questions we had and also patient with us as we drug our feet finalizing details. Brian and Celebrations by Shari absolutely contributed to a perfect day for us and we would highly reccomend them to anyone!

Shari is a wonderful person, first and foremost, and an excellent officiant. She was extremely sensitive to our needs, our rookie status of not knowing what we were doing, and our nerves - she answered all of our questions, sometimes twice, and calmed our nerves, and was very communicative throughout the process. Her ceremony was done at a great pace, allowing everyone enough time to savor the moment - she was calm, assured, well-spoken, creative, and assuring. We would not hesitate to recommend Shari to anyone in the market for an officiant and we would in fact hope that they stop here after reading this review and book her. We do not imagine anyone exceeding her service and product. She is forever a part of the wonderful memories of what turned out to be an absolutely perfect weekend. Couldn't have done it without her.

Shari married my husband and I, on a whim when another officiant backed out. My sister called her (because I was in hysterics and had no idea what we were going to do!). Shari instantly reassured us that she could help us and not to worry. Even just talking through email and texts, I felt like I was talking to someone I personally knew! Her kindness and genuine love for marrying people made us love her even more! We had a simple ceremony but it was anything but simple to us. Shari made us feel important and helped us every step of the way. We will forever be grateful for you! ?? John and Elizabeth Kapferer-July 30, 2016
