Lyssabeth's Colorado Wedding Officiants
If you think that your ceremony should be the most significant part of your wedding day, then you're in the right place. We are Lyssabeth's Colorado Wedding Officiants and we'll create and perform a service that will be--hands down--one of the most memorable experiences of your life. We specialize in officiating civil and nondenominational wedding ceremonies and vow renewals of all sizes with fun and flair and we always make the wishes and values of our couples our first priority. All beliefs and types of couples are welcomed!
Established by Maureen Thomson in 2002, we are a group of professional wedding officiants who officiate throughout Metro Denver and the entire Front Range.
We're on a mission to eradicate boring (a.k.a. beige) wedding ceremonies from the face of the planet--or at least our corner of Colorado. We hope you'll join us!
Ceremony Choices Simplified
...because getting married shouldn't be complicated!
We start with two ceremony levels. Click on each one below for details.
Don't worry if what you're envisioning doesn't fit perfectly into a category. These are just a starting place; we can tweak and edit as you like, or create something totally customized just for you.
About Our Officiants
Lyssabeth's officiants are personally chosen by Lyssabeth's owner and long-time wedding officiant Maureen Thomson. We require that all our officiants complete our extensive (and intensive!) in-house officiant training program.
While each officiant brings his or her own unique personality and officiating specialties to Lyssabeth's, we all share some common beliefs:
- Every couple deserves a ceremony that reflects their individual beliefs. Therefore, each Lyssabeth's officiant performs every type of ceremony, including secular (civil), nondenominational religious, spiritual-but-not-religious and interfaith.
- Ceremonies are about both ritual and celebration. To that end, each officiant--while demonstrating appropriate respect for the momentousness of the occasion--is equally committed to infusing every ceremony with joy and laughter.
- Same-sex couples are always welcomed and our Colorado wedding officiants perform ceremonies for all couples regardless of gender.
In addition, all officiants serve under the umbrella of Lyssabeth's Colorado Wedding Officiants in regard to pricing, contractual stipulations, and ceremony resources. Our officiants are part of a unified, interactive association of qualified officiating professionals dedicated to providing knock-your-socks-off wedding ceremonies as well as the advancement of officiating as a profession throughout Colorado.
My husband and I were amazed by the service we received from Lyssabeth's Colorado Wedding Officiants. When we first met with our officiant, he was very helpful in showing us how we could make our wedding creative and unique to us. One of my favorite ideas he came up with was how to recognize my deceased father. After our wedding we got many comments about how wonderful our ceremony was. It was great to hear that our guests enjoyed our ceremony as much as we did!
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.
Bill treated Doug and me with great respect from the minute we met him. We knew right after meeting him that he was the right fit for us
Note: Doug and Dan's Colorado civil union (above) was performed by officiant Bill Donovan at Wild Basin Lodge on Aug 25, 2013
And we're thrilled to announce that Dan and Doug had Bill back two years later to perform their legal wedding ceremony!
