Meet the Officiant

Officiant Deb

I’m Officiant Deb Lorentz. Let’s Plan Your Wedding!

Do you want a ceremony that captures your love story? Something that is fun, romantic, and memorable?

Perhaps a themed wedding is more your style. Do you want to get married before a hockey game? Do you love The Wizard of Oz? If a Halloween wedding is more your style, go for it! I am game for all of it!

Here’s the secret to planning a beautiful wedding day: There’s no one-size-fits-all wedding style.

You’re getting married! Your ceremony should be a reflection of your love story and your personalities, not be a cookie-cutter bore fest.

I’m a full-time wedding officiant, and I’m passionate about weddings. I’ve married hundreds of couples in West Virginia and Ohio. I became an officiant because my husband and I loved our elopement experience. I believe in marriage equality. I am an LGBTQIA+ – friendly officiant

I’m a published author, a book editor, and a former college English and public speaking instructor. I’ve transformed my love for written and spoken words into love stories and wedding ceremonies for couples from all over the world.

If you’re ready to take the next step and plan your wedding, reach out to me by completing the form below. There’s absolutely no obligation. We’ll chat. If we’re a good match, we’ll take the next step toward making your “best day ever” fun and memorable…and definitely UNboring.
