I contacted Lyssabeth's to find an officiant for my Santa Cruz wedding. Maureen and was super helpful and very responsive to my emails. We worked with Donna Gardner as our officiant. We loved her! She did such an amazing job and we are definitely going to keep in contact with her. I got a lot of compliments on my officiant choice from the wedding!

We offer four ceremony levels. Click on each one below for details, or visit our Ceremonies Page for a complete overview.

John was the absolute PERFECT officiant for our wedding! My husband and I cherish humor in our daily life and John brought the perfect combination of emotion, elegance and humor to our ceremony that was beyond I could have dared to dream to ask for. I received so many compliments on our ceremony and it is all thanks to him. If we ever have a ceremony to renew our vows or our friends get engaged, I will be recommending him to EVERYBODY!!

Thanks heaps for all the help and excellent communication over the last few months. It was great and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Ken was a legend! What a great job!

I can't say enough great things about my officiant, Christine Turner, who I booked through Lyssabeths. She created a personal ceremony for us based on our input, and presented it professionally and seamlessly. She was on time, professional, easy-going and our guests loved her. It's worth it to book your officiant for the rehearsal as well as ceremony, as she helped us run through our vows and made us a bit more comfortable with the overall flow of the ceremony. I'm so happy I booked with Lyssabeths!

Bay area wedding officiant Cindy Gregory shares a smile with beautiful partners Tracey and Nemesia, at their 2009 commitment ceremony. We're thrilled to announce that they will also be working with Cindy for their legally-recognized wedding ceremony to be celebrated in 2014!
We are currently living in Middletown, OH and were worried about finding an officiant for our wedding but your services were recommended by the Wild Horse Inn and we were very happy to be able to find someone since we live out of the area.

Thank you for the organized process of booking a ceremony and helping us find an officiant. (Officiant Matt Raynak) was a pleasure to work with and made the ceremony fun and tailored it to our relationship.

Bill Donovan officiated our civil union service and did an amazing job! I had friends and family members asking me, after the service, where we found Bill because they enjoyed his style and presence at the ceremony so much.
With the laws changing so rapidly across the country, I think that gay marriage and civil unions are going to become more and more commonplace. So I think there is going to be a strong market for officiants who let people know they are open and accepting. Lyssabeth's is one of those companies and Bill certainly is one of those officiants. He treated Doug and I with great respect from the minute we met him. When you are hiring so many professionals for your big day, you don't want to end up second guessing your decisions about who you hired. We never had a moments hesitation with Bill. We knew right after meeting him that he was the right fit for us.
