Liz is such a wonderful person to officiate a wedding. I knew the moment I met Liz that she would do a great job. She was very easy to keep in contact with and would check in with us from time to time just to see how we were doing. After our wedding my husband and I had multiple people tell us how great our ceremony was specifically the vows that Liz was so kind to write for us. Thank you Liz!

Liz did a terrific job helping us plan our ceremony and choose our vows. On our wedding day, she arrived as schedule and mingled with our guests wonderfully. The ceremony itself was beautiful and Liz was so heartfelt in her words and emotions. She truly helped make it a wonderful day for us.

Thank you for your comments, Susie. Your wedding on the pool island was a nice touch, and meeting your personable father-in-law was a highlight of my day! Wishing you both the best.

Liz was personable from the first day we met her. It felt like we were meeting an old friend for coffee. She listened to what we did and didn't want, and helped us incorporate family into our ceremony. Liz made things very personal for us. She included the story of how we met and things that we said into the ceremony. Our family told us they enjoyed the ceremony, some of them wanted a copy of what Liz said, and they all agreed that Liz added to the beauty of the photos taken during the event. We highly recommend Liz, and we thank her for all she did to make our wedding memorable. Bryan and Lisa

Liz was perfect! We spoke on the phone, then met in person. We got the feeling that she really wanted to get to know us and our story. She was flexible and was open to anything we wanted to do. After our initial meeting, we communicated by e-mail. She was professional, prompt, warm, honest, and sincere. She incorporated some of favorite music lyrics, told the story of how we met, the story of the proposal, our live before marriage, helped us make vows with our daughters, vows to each other as husband and wife and gave a beautiful message about our how marriage will change our lives! We got a lot of compliments for a lot of our guests and a lot said they teared up hearing her speak about us! She was perfect - I'm so glad we chose her and she chose us!! Thanks Liz!! :I can't wait for our wedding ceremony script!! :)

Thanks, Dawn. The family ceremony we did with your daughters was among the highlights for me. You all make a beautiful family, and it was my honor to be part of your Big Day.

Liz, I knew that when you accepted our request to officiate our ceremony that it would be great and a lot of pressure was taken off our shoulders. What I didn't realize was the magnitude of this greatness. You have the wonderful ability to take the information you received from us and turn it into a beautiful ceremony that neither Vicki or I will ever forget. You took our words and "captured who we are". I have never heard a more dynamic and heartfelt ceremony. Many of our family and friends commented on the actual words you spoke. It was mentioned that the words in our ceremony were meaningful, enlightening, and thought provoking. We can only say "thank you" for being part of our day and making it terrific!!!
Joyful Unions responded with the following comments:
Thank you, Alexa! It was my pleasure to be part of your day, and to learn more about your story and your connection with one another. And it was such a perfect day, with the sun shining, the garden so green and lush, and all the gathered family and friends -- even some present by FaceTime! I know you both will have a long and happy marriage!

Liz O'Brien officiated our wedding last year and we are still thrilled that we selected her. She personalized our wedding story and was a highlight of the event. She met with us and we discussed our vision for the wedding and she went beyond satisfying that for us.

Your sunset ceremony at the Ice House will remain one of my favorite wedding contexts. The two of you were so present during the ceremony -- I loved being part of it. Thanks, Thomas!

The day before our wedding our minister was admitted to the hospital and couldn't perform the ceremony. We found Liz online, called her in a panic, and she immediately answered the phone and put us at ease. By that evening we had chosen vows, gotten her the other ceremony information she needed and had everything all set to go. The next day she arrived early so we could review and do a short run through. Everyone commented on how amazing she was and no one suspected she was a last-minute substitution. To everyone there, it seemed as if she'd known us for a long time and not that we'd just met! I firmly believe that she did a much better job than our original officiant would have done and am thankful that this odd circumstance brought us all together. Thanks, Liz!!!
Joyful Unions responded with the following comments:
I am so glad you called, Emily. Your wedding was so warm and relaxed; it was a pleasure to be part of it. And I'm also happy to hear that we successfully "fooled" everyone as to how long we'd known each other! Wishing you and Michael a long and happy marriage!

Hands down, Liz was THE best wedding vendor my husband and I worked with. Not only was she responsive and professional, she really listened to our needs and spent time crafting a touching, heartfelt, and joyous ceremony that we could not have been more happy with. Every single person who attended our wedding commented on how brilliant Liz's ceremony was. My family are still raving about the beautiful and personal words that she shared that day. Most people who attended the wedding thought that she was a family friend because of the warmth and personal touches that Liz included in her words. I am so happy to have met and worked with Liz. She is a wonderfully kind individual who will give you the ceremony of your dreams. She surely did that for my husband and I. I cannot thank her enough.
Joyful Unions responded with the following comments:
The feelings are mutual. I very much enjoyed meeting and working with the two of you. My husband and I were about your age when we married all those years ago; being part of your Big Day was quite sentimental for me. And your dress! It was fairytale perfect.

Liz made our wedding absolutely perfect! She met with us a couple of times prior to the wedding and asked us both questions on how we met, how he proposed etc. She used the questions to introduce my husband and I to all of the guests at he wedding by giving them a quick story about us prior to the vows. She was so professions in every aspect and gave us a perfect ceramony. After all of the wedding fun was over the 1 thing all of our guest were complimenting us on was how amazing our Officiant did. I would recommend Liz to anybody who is looking to have a perfect wedding!!!!
Joyful Unions responded with the following comments:
I'm touched by your sweet words, Ashley. Thank you. Congratulations again to you and Jeremy; you're undoubtedly off and running on a long and successful marriage! All my best.

Liz is personable, professional, and is a wonderful officiant. She took time to get to know my husband and I, took notes on how we met and incorporated this into our ceremony. Liz was always responsive to our questions, created a wonderful ceremony of laughter, tears and love. Many of our guests commented to us on what an amazing job Liz did. I would highly recommend Liz!
Joyful Unions responded with the following comments:
I loved working with you both. And I'll never forget Jeff's "fortune cookie" vows to you! It was a priceless moment.

Liz O'Brien was an absolute JOY to work with as our marriage officiant. She was extremely personable and took the time to get to know not only what we were expecting out of our ceremony and vows, but she really very pleasantly surprised me with how much she got to know us as a couple and how she tailored our ceremony so I just felt like it was "us." We didn't really give Liz enough time to even schedule an in-person meeting with us, but after the first phone conversation I really felt like she was the "one" and felt confident moving forward with working with her in the very short time frame (about a month before our ceremony). I really felt like Liz gave me the flexibility to write our own vows, but then provided excellent support in organizing the entire ceremony and not putting any pressure at all on me and my husband. It was a great balance - she knows her stuff! I would recommend Liz to anyone looking for an amazingly supportive officiant who LOVES what she does. I was so pleased to share our special day with Liz.
Joyful Unions responded with the following comments:
Thank you so much for your words, Jennifer. Your wedding on that beautiful Spring morning in the garden showed that couples can, if need be, put together a ceremony quickly, elegantly, and most romantically. Wishing you the greatest of marital bliss!
