Steve and Jen's Wedding - April 2, 2016-119.jpg

Looking back, I can't imagine having anyone other than Erica perform our wedding ceremony. From the moment we met with her, we knew that she would be a perfect fit for us. She's full of spirit, enthusiasm, love, and happiness and it shows in her personality. We were not looking for your typical, bland, boring ceremony.  We were looking for those in attendance to understand what our love means to each other and Erica was able to express that to everyone perfectly with her beautiful words and positivity. She even went out of her way to create one of the most original wedding readings that one could ask for tailored exactly for our crazy love story. Everything in planning a wedding is chaotic.  Erica not only relieved the stress but just having her there helped us relax and enjoy ourselves. She also took care of all of the details with the marriage license and made sure that it was mailed in after the wedding since we left the next day for our honeymoon.  How awesome is that?!?!! She crafted the perfect ceremony and above everything else that occurred that day, it is what I will remember for the rest of my life.  I'd give her 10 stars if I could.

Allison and Michael, January 2016

Erica was everything we could have hoped for in a wedding officiant. From the get-go she was warm and inviting (and prompt!), and she wholeheartedly encouraged me and my wife to make our wedding our own, listening to our love story and adding details from it to her part of the ceremony. She provided an exhaustive list of vows to choose from and personalize, and was open to us writing our own if that's what we wanted. Anytime we interacted, she radiated with positive energy and encouragement of my wife's individuality as a bride (she wore a red dress...), as if our wedding were the most special thing on earth, and important. She checked in regularly as the date approached, which made us feel like we could count on her. Plus, she knows her stuff (e.g., "Hey, don't forget to get a marriage license within X number of days of the wedding, look at each other--not me--when you're saying your vows, etc etc). She's just a lovely, kickass person, and I hope we stay in touch.

Kathryn and Darrell, October 2014

Erica was so incredibly helpful, kind and patient thoughout our wedding planning process. She was a perfect guide though uncharted waters, helping us keep on track. I am incredibly shy but I found it so easy to open up to Erica and she was mindful of this with regards to ceremony planning as well.

Our ceremony was personal, meaningful, short, and everything we could have asked for plus somethings we would have never even thought to ask for! My husband and I both come from families deeply rooted in the Catholic faith. We were nervous about how our famillies would feel about our non-religious wedding but everyone was both touched and impressed by how it turned out.

I will be forever grateful to Erica for playing such an integral role in our special day.

Catherine and Dan, September 2014

Erica officiated our wedding this past September, and we couldn't have been happier with our ceremony! I cannot say enough amazing things about this woman! Erica is one of the most kind and sincere people I have ever met, and the instant I met her I felt like we had been old friends. Our wedding photographer referred us to her, as we were looking for someone to help us create an easy, short-but-sweet, non-religious wedding ceremony- someone to click with our personalities and an overall fun person- and Erica was that! I emailed her an inquiry, and she quickly replied to me and set up a meeting at a coffee shop near me, where we met and had an awesome morning full of fun and laughter as we got to know her and she got to know us as a couple. After that, she drafted a ceremony for us, and frequently contacted me for our input and edits along the way. We met a few times leading up to the wedding to discuss changes and finalization. She writes the most beautiful ceremonies. She helped me find the perfect vows and poems to include, and she listened to every idea we had imagined for our wedding. She was there every step of the way, and she went out of her way to make sure it was the perfect ceremony that we wanted. Erica is professional, genuine, and just an overall cool person! You can tell that she truly cares and loves this profession- her positive attitude and warmth radiates!! Everyone at our wedding had nothing but wonderful compliments for her. We are so thankful we found such a great person to marry us!! Thanks Erica!


Elizabeth and Bryan, May 2013

Erica officiated our wedding in May of 2013 and was a delight to work with at every step. She made it easy and fun to create our vows and choose the details of our ceremony, coordinating with our wedding planner and others to help us shape a wonderful memory we will treasure all our lives. She helped us add personal touches to our ceremony (including references to Star Trek and the stand-up comedy origins of my husband's and my original acquaintance) that made the days even more special. I would wholeheartedly recommend Erica to anyone who is looking for a helpful, cheerful, magical officiant for their wedding.


Ryan and Sylvia, September 2012

Both Fuzzy and Erica were the officiants at our wedding when my wife I got married. They were both amazing and were more than happy with to help us with any questions we had regarding the ceremony structure, flow and content. They were great at keeping the balance between being excited for our big day and ensuring everything was as grounded as it needed to be. We never hesitated with any questions and they never hesitated with any answers. During the rehearsal, Erica was on top of making sure that people were on task and didn't get distracted by anything else going on. On the big day, they brought a warm energy to the ceremony and we had a number of friends and family comment on how much they loved the service because of them. We would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking for officiants to bring smiles and laughs to their special day. --Ryan

Erica is awesome! She was sooo wonderful to work with and we felt so safe and comfortable in her capable hands. She was a perfect mix between business and friend, and she instinctively knew when to put on which hat too. The ceremony we wrote together was a true collaboration, and her stage presence and delivery of said script was perfect. Our family and friends had so many nice things to say about the ceremony, and about her. She really gets it, and is just a wonderful person to have around on such an important day. I know Erica is a very busy woman, but she always managed to make us feel like her top priority. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone. --Sylvia

Jen and Dave, August 2012

Erica is a dream, from beginning to end. Early on, she drew on her vast experience to offer suggestions and inspiration, but her aim was always to guide us toward a wedding that 100% reflected our personalities. And on the day of, she was a blessing, wrangling issues and heading problems off at the pass. She's a warm and uplifting presence, and her calm is infectious on what might otherwise have been a hectic day. Finally, her service was thoughtful and beautiful, folding in our experiences and our family and friends. It was the perfect beginning to our marriage!

Emily and Kevin, July 2012

Erica was kind enough to jump in as an "emergency officiant" when it turned out the officiant we had planned to use would be unable to perform much of our ceremony. Erica turned out to be the perfect "finishing touch" on our special day. She brings a sense of joy, happiness, and light with her that really made us feel like our happiness was her first priority. Though she was in an odd situation (our original officiant had helped us plan the ceremony and still delivered much of the service), Erica was totally flexible, willing to "roll with the punches," and in the end you would never have guessed that she wasn't part of the process from the beginning. She even added a few special touches of her own that showed she really understood who we were as a couple and what style of ceremony we wanted. I would absolutely recommend Erica for a ceremony of any kind-- if she did all this for us at the last minute, just imaging what she'll do for you with plenty of time to plan!

Noah and Stephanie, August 2011

Working with Erica was the first and easiest decision we made when we started planning our wedding. When she could have just breezed in at the last minute, officiated over the ceremony, and left, she worked with us to make it the ceremony that we wanted and that was the most us, and both in planning and on the day, Erica made sure everything ran smoothly and that we were both comfortable.

Erica was everything you could ask for in an officiant - thoughtful, generous, kind, and very well-organized. She helped us out from the planning stages to the big day, and she did an amazing job at every step. Erica is the best!

Jodi and Eliot, April 2011

Working with Erica and Fuzzy made the ceremony planning easy and meaningful from the first conversation to the actual wedding day. My husband and I were melding Jewish and Christian traditions. While we had some ideas, Erica went above and beyond researching both faiths to bring real balance to the language and ceremonial elements. We highly recommend working with Erica; she's a true collaborator who will help make the wedding day plan a seamless reality.
