LOVING HEART CEREMONIES
by Risa Marlen
"Thank you so much for all of your help. We heard only raves about the ceremony!
Feel free to add our kudos to your list. We would certainly recommend you!!”
Katie & Joe
“J. and I have been friends and colleagues for 4 years now. Because she recommended you, I knew that you were someone I could trust. You gave us exactly the ceremony we wanted, and needed, at this complicated, but blessed time.”
Mariella & Chris (
"Thanks for the photos, and for making our day so special and personal. Lots of people told us that it was one of the best ceremonies that they'd been to because it was so personal."

"Thanks Risa! I really had an amazing time and you made it that much more special by being understanding of our short but sweet ceremony!" ……
“We always tell our friends and family how special you made our day.”
Candace & Mike
"Thank you so much for the anniversary wishes. We were so fortunate to have you there to help in making it such a special day! We are actually here at the Manor this weekend to celebrate and re-live it all again."

"I have to say again and again, you did a wonderful ceremony, seeing someone else's makes me realize how lucky we were to have you! I can promise if anyone I know gets married I would surely recommend you! ..... We always joke we are going to renew our vows and have another big party for our five year anniversary, perhaps we could convince you to come back and renew our vows!!"
The Grand Chalet
"We were so happy with the way the ceremony turned out. Thank you for understanding what it was we wanted. We enjoyed your company and were glad you were able to join our crazy families for dinner! ....We were just talking about our wonderful day one year ago and how beautiful our ceremony was thanks to you. You really did capture who we are and helped make our day exactly what we were hoping for. I will always be sure to think of you if we have a need, and always have you at the back of my mind when others are talking about events in their lives also. "
Jennifer & Michael
“Thank you so much! It was exactly what I wanted— small and personal. It was laid back and very comfortable – which is the way I want anyone who comes into my home to feel. Everyone thought you were so nice. My niece is actually trying to talk her boyfriend into doing the same thing now – so you will probably be hearing from us again!”
Colonia, NJ (Family Home)
“Without a doubt, the highlight of this amazing trip was Renewing Our Vows to each other on our wedding anniversary. We are so grateful that Risa was willing to do this for us. She hardly knew us, and yet she was able to pull a ceremony together so quickly, capturing the essence of who we are, and what has been important to us over these past 45 years. Thank you, thank you, thank you – we will never forget what you did for us!”
