Meet your Minneapolis Officiants

Hannah (she/her)


Hannah grew up in South Dakota just a few blocks from the world’s only Corn Palace. (Which, yes, is exactly as interesting as it sounds.) In 2018, she traded corn fields for the streets of New York, where she got her MFA in creative writing from NYU. There, she studied with writers like Joyce Carol Oates, Jonathan Foer, and Zadie Smith, who taught her how to read and write better and only made her cry once.

Now that she’s graduated, Hannah works at a startup in Manhattan on its operations team. In her free time, she works (slowly, painstakingly) on her first novel and freelance writes resumes and cover letters for other women. She has also discovered a love of yoga and plant-based eating since quarantine and will sing the praises of cauliflower BBQ wings all day long. 

When her friends put out a call for a wedding officiant late last year, Hannah jokingly volunteered. The joke was on her, apparently, because they agreed. Turns out, officiating combines all the things she loves the most—writing, public speaking, and leaning in over a beer (or a Zoom call) to get every. single. detail. of a love story—and she’s so excited to get started with you and the team at Liz Rae!

Steven (He/him)


Steven is a native NY’er who grew up in Wappingers Falls, went to college in Albany and moved to Manhattan upon graduating (um, a….few…years ago.) Steven, his partner and two rescue dogs call the Upper West Side home and they all love taking advantage of what the city has to offer.

When work calls, Steven is the Head of Talent at POPSUGAR, the leading female lifestyle digital platform where he and his team source talent for all of POPSUGAR’s content – video, editorial, events and social media. Prior to POPSUGAR, Steven was a talent agent in unscripted television.

When Steven’s cousin asked him to officiate her wedding, Steven dove in head first and had the best experience. He loved crafting the ceremony with the couple and can’t wait to be a part of yours!

Will it be worth it?

Just ask these folks.

“Working with Liz and Hannah was an amazing experience. Everything about the entire officiant process was amazing and more than I could have ever imagined. The initial contact/setup process is made extremely simple. Liz makes sure to pair you up with the officiant of your choice based on your own personal preference and availability. Our officiant Hannah Redder was the best fit for us. Hannah is an extremely kind, funny, and accommodating person. We had multiple calls with her throughout the planning process, where she would ask us questions to get a sense of who we were as a couple. Hannah also went in-depth by having conversations with some of our friends and family. Everything she did was extremely thorough. I never got the sense that she cut corners on anything. Hannah wrote us the most beautiful drafts for our wedding ceremony, based on the observations she made during our conversations. My wife and I barely had to make ANY changes to her drafts, as we thought they were as close to perfect as they could possibly be. Meeting Hannah at the wedding in person was also great, as she was just as friendly and likable as she was online. Hannah was a crucial part of making our wedding the amazing day that it turned out to be and I would recommend her to all of my own close friends and family. The BEST officiant ever!”
