Sweet Words from My Couples
Finding Olivia and "Let There Bee Love" was an act of the Universe! We knew we wanted a non traditional, yet spiritual wedding and surprisingly these searches led us to exactly the opposite of what we were looking for. The Denver market needed an officiant and planner like Olivia! She breaks the mold of traditional and crafts a divinely guided experience for her couples. I was lucky enough to be one of them! Olivia took the time to get to know my now husband and I over multiple, intentional Zoom/in person meetings and made sure very early on that she was a right fit for us as much as we were for her. She is honest, gentle, extremely caring and wildly talented with her writing. On the day of, Olivia was our emotional rock at the altar. She made sure we had nothing to worry about other than locking eyes with one another and truly soaking in this precious and fleeting moment. We love you Olivia! (shoutout to Phillip for also providing moral support and coordination!)
Liv is so full of love and made every part of our experience and ceremony amazing!!! We had an amazing time planning our ceremony with you and the ceremony you wrote and created for us on our special day is something we will cherish forever, you truly captured our love and I cannot thank you enough!!!!! Liv you are amazing!!!! I highly recommend anyone looking for an amazing officiant to capture your love.
Liv was so helpful with our elopement- Including FaceTiming us to get to know our relationship so she could make our ceremony more personal, sending links for fun things to do around the area of our elopement, giving us how to’ son writing our vows, and so much more! She and her husband even traveled a few hours to where we were staying to make the weekend an anniversary get away since our wedding date was on a week day. She is so easy to talk to and was available to me anytime I needed to ask questions! :D We couldn’t have asked for a more caring, down to earth person to officiate our wedding! We highly recommend Liv!
Amazing! Helped me out so much before, during, and even after the ceremony! Compassionate, loving, and truly cares about her couples! Even helped with the littles! Went above and beyond! Hire her! You rock, Olivia!
Getting married? You've probably booked your main vendors, venues, food choices, dresses, tux’s flights, and a plethora of other must-haves. I just went through it with Stephanie, my—now—wife at the end of August. One of the items we neglected to explore when we started planning 11 months before our wedding, was having an officiant. My wife and I are not religious, but we were planning a small (about 60 people) intimate wedding at Deer Creek Mountain Camp in Bailey, CO and wanted an officiant for our ceremony even though Colorado does not require a certified officiant to sign a marriage license.
Fast forward to the end of May 2021 (about 90 days before our wedding) when Stephanie reached out to an officiant named Liv, the proprietor of “Let There Bee Love” with an inquiry. This is where the story really begins. We scheduled an introductory zoom meeting with Liv and after the first few minutes of chatting with her, I realized two things: first, I had no idea how many details really went into a wedding ceremony, and second, that we personally needed someone to help us figure out and achieve the ceremony we wanted to have.
Traditionally, an officiant would strictly be at a wedding for the ceremony and signing the official wedding certificate, but with Liv, that is just the beginning. After our first meeting, we decided to book with her, and it was one of the best decisions we made for the wedding. After booking, we decided to have Liv write the story of us (her idea) to read to our guests at the ceremony. My wife and I have a colorful background which we were hoping to share with our guests in a plateable way. We had multiple follow up meetings with Liv where she got to know us through questions and fun exercises at our leisure. Despite oversharing, after the 4th meeting, Liv had a rough draft of our story for the ceremony that she was as excited to share with us as we were to read it. I made it about 3 sentences in before getting choked up, and after getting to the end, my wife and I both agreed that we wanted her to use that draft and not change a thing.
It might be cliche to say, but Liv understands love, and as she likes to say, she loves love. Additionally, she was able to help us create a wholly unique ceremony by allowing us to choose various traditional wedding functions and apply them to us. We chose to say our vows in private and perform a hand wrapping during the ceremony, which Liv catered to us specifically. She’ll also match the wedding colors per your request and can provide many additional wedding planning resources where needed. On the day of, everything went exactly as planned, and Liv even helped corral the wedding party when it was time to start, walked with me down the aisle (providing both moral and physical support) and later, helped kick off the toasts at dinner.
Liv also directed us and helped us scramble to get our marriage certificate before the wedding and held onto it after the ceremony along with some other precious valuables so we could go on our Honeymoon without worrying about losing or misplacing those important things. At your own wedding, things are such a whirlwind that something as simple as holding on to our own marriage certificate will be very difficult.
Once we got back, we had the pleasure of meeting up with Liv to pick everything up and have a follow up chat. Liv helped make our wedding perfect in more ways than I can write. If you are looking for an officiant in Colorado to cater to you, look no further. I highly recommend Liv for her wedding planning and officiant services. You’ll know you are in good hands if you choose her.
Liv is such a nice person who really cares about her couples. She is well spoken and the perfect person to marry you! Highly recommend
