Larissa Martell was a true and exceptional find.
Phil and I discussed our elopement to New York some 3 months ago and didn't actually do or make any arrangements until a month beforehand.
Larissa came on high recommendation. She confirmed her availability straight away and was extremely helpful with regards to the process.
Everything was confirmed again via email. Leading up to the date of our elopement Larissa asked for any special readings, family members that we wanted to remember and had asked questions of both Phil and I (separately) about one another. She managed to incorporate these just before our vows which made it personal, memorable and injected some humour too which made our photographers and witnesses to the ceremony laugh and smile.
Larissa made our day special. Before I/we finally met Larissa the day before the wedding at the Mandarin..I felt we were meeting up with a friend. She is truly lovely, personable and a gorgeous person and now our new friend.
If you are looking for an officiate, someone who can make your wedding special then pick Larissa....You wont regret it.

My Wedding Wire reviews
Location: Under the Brooklyn Bridge - New York
We travelled from Australia to get married in New York (at the Empire Fulton-Ferry Boardwalk), and of course not being in the city whilst planning our wedding was tricky for some aspects, this was not one of them. Larissa was so obliging, professional and honestly an absolute pleasure to work with.
Right from the beginning, we felt very comfortable with her and she understood exactly what we wanted.
Our day, whilst it flew by, was perfect and we have Larissa to thank for a big part of that! - Josh and Amanda
