— Steven

I was introduced to Liz through a friend as I was asked to officiate my cousin’s wedding and wanted to get some expert advice. Liz was so easy to talk to and her passion for officiating weddings was immediately apparent. We chatted for 30 mins and she gave me insight and information which will be super helpful as I plan the ceremony. Thank you, Liz!!


1-1 Meetings

Liz will schedule a personal video call with you to discuss your wedding ceremony, critique your writing, and offer takeaway items to improve.


Ceremony Prep and Materials

Before your calls with Liz, she’ll provide you a guide to help you begin preparing to write and additional guides throughout the process to help you formulate the ceremony. Closer to the wedding, she’ll prepare you for officiating or help you prepare your friend to officiate.


100% Custom Guidance

We’re known for writing deeply personal, intimate ceremonies that are sure to give all the feelings during the wedding day and engage guests. We’re not going to give you templates – we’re going to help you write a dang good ceremony from scratch, just like us.

Founder + Officiant


Liz founded Liz Rae & Co in 2015 during her best friend Maranda’s engagement. Her friend, Timmie, at the time also struggled with finding an LGBTQ-friendly officiant that custom-wrote ceremonies. Liz believes the ceremony is the best part of the wedding day and wanted to make a change in the industry by emphasizing not only the importance of marriage ceremonies but inclusivity as well.

Since starting her business, Liz has officiated over 400 ceremonies across the US and Europe. She started Vows Well Traveled shortly after to plan custom elopements and small weddings for international couples.

When she isn’t writing ceremonies, she works for a tech company during the day and a film production company by night. She’s been writing her whole life, but gained her storytelling knowledge through Faber Academy’s novel program and UCLA’s TV and Film Writing degree. You can read some of her writing on her website, Liz Rae and more notably on Thought Catalog.  She writes freelance for a variety of clients in various industries.
