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.

All I can say about Shari is “wow”. She helped us build the most perfect ceremony and made it so special. She is so easy to work with and provides anything you could possibly need. You should hands down have her officiate your wedding. She made our day so perfect, our guests could not stop complimenting about how special the ceremony was.

I originally saw Shari officiate my sister’s wedding and I knew right there that I wanted her to do mine also! Shari was so quick to respond to my emails with all my questions. I loved how I was able to customize the wording for my ceremony and make it more personal to my fiancé and I. Shari also came to the rehearsal and was very helpful in getting everyone organized and more comfortable with knowing where to go on the day of the wedding. I am very happy that we choose Shari to be apart of our day!

Shari was wonderful! We felt very comfortable with her, as did our guests. She worked with us to incorporate the elements that we wanted in our wedding. My husband is Irish Catholic, so we had his neice read an Irish prayer. I am Jewish, so my nephew read a Jewish prayer. It was wonderful! Thank you Shari❣️

Shari was wonderful to work with. She quickly responded to all of our e-mails and answered all our questions. The day of the wedding, she arrived early to review the ceremony and make sure we did not need anything. Shari was able to personalize our ceremony using questionnaires we filled out. All of our guests raved about the ceremony and said it was the best wedding they have ever been to. We highly recommend Celebrations by Shari for every wedding.

Shari was extremely helpful and hands-on with our planning process! She provided extensive materials to help construct the ceremony content and was prompt with her feedback. The day came together beautifully, and with Shari's professionalism, warmth and spirit we knew we had nothing to worry about. I would highly recommend you consider services as we had the best experience!
