Jennifer & Matt
We knew even before we were engaged that Laura was going to be our officiant. We didn’t know where to begin when it came to the ceremony and what we wanted. We planned for a small, simple ceremony with just close family. So it was very laid back. Laura provided us with great insight and a number of ideas. If it was up to us, it would have been a 5 minute ceremony. HA! Lucky for us, Laura knew a few things, simple and meaningful, that we could incorporate. It was still the small, simple, laid back ceremony that we wanted. Laura helped to make our wedding day perfect. She is amazing, enthusiastic, and professional.
Hollie & Micah
Rev. Laura Ann Phillips was our first choice when deciding on an officiant for our wedding. She is one of my favorite spiritual advisors and I felt that having her marry us would make our special day that much more personal. Rev. Laura performed premarital counseling for us to ensure our commitments were not being taken lightly, as well as satisfying our Covenant Marriage requirement for the State of Louisiana. During that time, Micah and I learned a lot about what we were expecting from each other and what issues may arise in our marriage that would take a little extra TLC.
We had lunch with Laura shortly after and discussed the arrangements for the wedding. She helped us organize it exactly the way we wanted and personalized vows according to our choosing. At the rehearsal dinner, she walked us through the service as it would go and gave us all a pep talk on what was expected, including a small bribe (quarters!) to get my flower girl and ring bearer down the isle. :)
Come the wedding day, she handled the ceremony exactly the way I had hoped it would go, and spoke some beautiful words that I still keep dear to my heart to this day. I remember the feeling of relief knowing she would handle the service in its entirety and that was one less item for me to check off my list. Even as my pregnant matron of honor almost fainted in the June Louisiana heat, Laura was able to carry on without missing a beat (after ensuring she was OK of course). Overall, our wedding day went off without a hitch and is a day I'll never forget. Rev. Laura had so much to do with that and I'm so thankful for choosing her to share that special day with us.

We used Rev. Laura Phillips as our officiant and had some very specific ideas in mind of what we wanted. She didn't bat an eyelid when we asked for a non-religious ceremony and she asked very specific questions of the way we wanted certain things worded. She created a very poetic ceremony script for us and we received so many compliments during the reception about how beautiful the whole ceremony was!
Brandy & Frederick
Laura was amazing! Our small, private ceremony went off without a hitch. Laura did a fantastic job of listening to our request and then transforming them into something we never would have thought of. We didn't have a serious formal ceremony so it was quite pleasant to have someone so outgoing and open to our idea. She laughed with us, not at us, which was great. Very much prompt and delightful!
Thank you, Laura

Antoinette & Larell
I absolutely loved her... she was perfect!
Jessica & David
We contacted Laura about 3 weeks before the wedding (4 weeks total from saying "Yes!" to saying "I do!"), and she was very understanding and open-minded to our wants and needs. She emailed us a version of what she wanted to say for the nuptials, and it was stunningly beautiful! I would highly recommend Laura!!!
Heidi & Brandon
Rev. Laura was absolutely amazing. I can not rave about her enough. She was so understanding and flexible with our last min time change from evening to lunch, more than happy to work with us and our dogs whom we wanted in the ceremony and listened to everything we wanted from our ceremony. The service was short, sweet, humorous and perfect in every way. I will be recommending her to everyone I know.
Missy & Andrew
Our experience with Laura was outstanding! She came through for us when we needed a last minute officiant and our guests couldn't say enough about how beautiful the ceremony was. She was very pleasant to work with and listened to our needs and worked them into the service perfectly.
Ryan & Alynn
She was perfect and so prepared for our needs. Thank you Laura. It was a blessing to find her.
