Hi, I’m Lisa, and I will be the one you talk to when you call As You Like It Weddings! I’ve been performing weddings for about 15 years and have had the honor of presiding well over 1,000 ceremonies. It is my passion! I LOVE it! There is nothing I’d rather do. I feel so privileged to have work that is filled with such love and joy. Words cannot capture the gratitude I feel to be a part of such a sacred time in people’s lives. I have been extremely selective in choosing the following wonderful associates to perform your wedding with great competence and loving care.

Daniel has a contagious smile and great enthusiasm for officiating wedding ceremonies. He encourages self expression in all ceremonies and enjoys the opportunity to talk with brides and grooms before creating that very special day they will always remember. “A wedding is a sacred and joyful ceremony where two people vow to share their lives and unite their spirits. I enjoy participating in a ceremony created by and for the love two people have for one another.” He has studied literature, art, and communications, which encouraged him to research numerous systems of belief and look for the common threads that unite people, promote peace and increase stability in our world.
