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.

About Our Officiants

Lyssabeth's officiants are personally chosen by Lyssabeth's owner and long-time wedding officiant Maureen Thomson. We require every officiant with whom we contract to 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 Colorado 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 all of our Colorado wedding officiants perform ceremonies for all couples regardless of gender.

In addition, all Lyssabeth's officiants serve under the umbrella of Lyssabeth's in regard to pricing, contractual stipulations, and ceremony resources. Lyssabeth's 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.

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!!
