Arielle was amazing! She helped us through customizing our ceremony and vows and totally saved the day at our rehearsal when our wedding coordinator at the site didn’t show up until late and did not plan or lead any of the rehearsal. Arielle took over for me with little to no direction and was able to pull it all together seamlessly! My family and wedding party thought she was the wedding coordinator, she was so organized and a natural leader. She was so thoughtful to help me include a video camera recording the ceremony in an empty chair in honor of my grandparents that could not make it to my wedding from the East coast.
Arielle was AMAZING! She had more energy than we did. honestly i didn’t know what to expect but she was very professional and fun to have as our justice of peace. and here is the kicker, i called her friday afternoon and she made it all happen the next day satrurday 1pm right on the dot.
My husband and I were married by Arielle, yesterday. I had been searching for someone that was down to earth, not showy or flashy, and who just “got us”. I’m so glad I found her!! She is great and so thorough. If you want someone to officiate your wedding who will actually care about what you say and who isn’t like a used car salesman, then Arielle is your girl. She’s as real and genuine as they come. And she helped us have the best day ever!!
Arielle was a blessing to work with. Right from the beginning she was very enthusiastic about our wedding, getting to know us and paying attention to what we wanted. Her attitude was always full of positive energy.
Arielle drove out to our city to meet us which was really appreciated. We also liked that she was willing to work with any denomination and was adamant about making sure the ceremony was customized to exactly what we wanted. In fact we ended up doing a hybrid Vietnamese-American wedding and during the ceremony we served tea. To our surprise Arielle had already officiated weddings that included tea ceremonies. She was on the ball and had tons of suggestions to personalize it to what we wanted.
When we were writing our vows she gave us pre-written vows that we could use if we wanted. We decided to make our own completely but the pre-written versions were beautifully written and I’m pretty sure we’d be crying if we read them instead!
We were late to get started and our guests were kept waiting 45 minutes in the hot sun. Arielle did a great job keeping the guests calm and at bay by updating them of the situation at key moments and with great coordination with our DJ. During the ceremony Arielle’s voice was strong but peaceful. She did a great job of keeping our crowd captivated with positive energy and enthusiasm. One thing that really stood out to me was mid-way in the ceremony someone made a comment that could have been mis-interpreted and Arielle quickly stood up to the microphone and turned it into a joke and made the crown laugh alleviating a moment that could have been awkward.
After the ceremony Arielle reminded the crowd to blow their bubbles, which was wonderful and well timed. We were of course quickly whisked away by family and friends and then by our photographers. Arielle patiently waited almost an hour to sign our marriage license with us. We were really grateful for that.
Overall Arielle did a wonderful job. She was very enthusiastic and paid attention to what we wanted. Better yet she delivered. I can’t find a single thing i would like her to improve, and that includes her price which is pretty tough to beat, especially considering the quality of her service. Thanks LA wedding woman!
After 8.5 years together, my partner and I were finally able to get married! We live in a state without marriage equality, but had plans to be in California and decided to get married while there. We looked into a courthouse civil ceremony, but decided we wanted something a little more personal. We looked into our options, and got in touch with LA Wedding Woman based on their super reviews and great website. Best decision ever.
Even with very short notice (about 4 days), they set us up with Arielle, who got in touch with us immediately to work out the details. All communication beforehand was outstanding. Arielle’s kind and supportive demeanor radiated through every email.
On the big day, Arielle showed up right on time, and was just as lovely in person. It felt like we’d known her for years. She was professional while being warm and comforting, and led an incredibly beautiful ceremony (we went with the “I Do” ceremony). Our guests were also very impressed with her, all commenting afterwards about how well she officiated and how lovely her words were.
The day was going to be special no matter what, but Arielle made it so much moreso. I can’t recommend her enough!
Arielle had more energy than we did. Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect, but she was very professional and fun to have as our justice of peace. Here is the kicker, I called her Friday afternoon, and she made it all happen the next day: Saturday at 1pm, right on the dot.
On behalf of my wife and I, we would like to extend our greatest appreciation for your service and your presence for Natalie and Jonathan’s special day. We were both extremely impressed and thankful that you were there to make sure that everything was set up properly and operating smoothly prior to the ceremony and throughout the evening. I can honestly say that without your help, things would not have gone as well as planned. You completed the plan.

Thank you so much for officiating our wedding on Saturday. It was a marvelous day for LeAnn and I and we are so glad that we had you to help everything flow together so perfectly. Your confidence and grace were such a great help; we would certainly have been in a great deal of trouble without you. Thank you again.
Thank you so very very much for the ceremony on Saturday! Adam and I loved the way it all turned out. Your words are beautiful and we are so thankful for your presence at our wedding!
