Love Letters

Sweet Words from My Couples & Vendors

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 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!

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.

Wow, where to start? First of all, THIS is the woman you need to go to if you're looking for a stellar ceremony and Officiant. She offers so many amazing potential experiences for the needs of any couple, specializing in unconventional weddings, including those of different faiths and lifestyles. My husband and I had one that honored my Pagan faith utilizing The Selene package beautifully. It was personalized down to the last detail.

Liv makes an effort to get to know you on a personal level, and completely tailors your ceremony to YOU. You still get the final say as to what you want your ceremony to include, what things you might want her to say, any sort of rituals you'd like performed, all of it. She will take the time to help you and take everything into her own hands, like planning and vendor coordination, so you don't have to worry. Total lifesaver for this bride, as I started out trying to plan and do everything for my wedding totally solo before I found her.

She's extremely professional and makes sure to check in with you regularly, and is always available for any and all concerns you may have. She is kind, attentive, and always has some awesome ideas and suggestions if you're running short on those. She genuinely at her core cares so much about you as a person, and making your day the most special it can be. She loves love, and being apart of it.

The day of my wedding, my decorations didn't arrive on time. Liv's husband (yes, even her husband cares TONS about you and your wedding. C'mon people, they are amazing) along with other members of her crew, went out of their way to make a trip to the craft store last minute to pull some things together and then decorate the venue according to the vision I was going for. It was so absolutely gorgeous and I am eternally grateful and in her debt. 

ALL of this (and sooo much more) at prices that are absolutely unbeatable. Like, it is mind-blowing how much you get from her for the prices she offers. This woman will even full-on travel to another state or country for you. This is something you most definitely won't find anywhere else. She also has other packages, involving day-of coordinating, which was a major load off of my shoulders for me. We got The Artemis package along with The Selene; again, at absolutely unbeatable prices.

This is the only person I will ever point people to who are looking for someone for their wedding. Someone who genuinely loves what she does, puts ALL of her effort forth, and goes more than the extra mile for you. I'm getting emotional just typing this out because I can't stress enough how precious of a person she has become to myself and my husband. 

Thank you so much for everything, Liv. Conner and I had the most beautiful and perfect day, and it was 100% because of you.

Just book Liv! Seriously do it now!!

I was getting married for the second time, and I really wanted my second wedding to be more spiritual and meaningful than my first wedding which was a courthouse wedding.

I tried to look for other officiants in the Denver area that would cater to my Pagan beliefs, and it was crazy how I was able to find other non-denominational or Humanist officiants but not a Pagan or Wiccan one.

Liv filled this bill perfectly and was able to customize our ceremony to include traditional handfasting elements while making it to where it wouldn't weird out my very Catholic in-laws.

She really got to know myself and my husband personally over a few in-person meetings and tailored our ceremony perfectly to us.

Liv was also a huge support especially towards the end when things got intense with the wedding planning, and I just loved the support she provided.

Her husband Phil is also amazing as well as being an awesome bartender for our next day reception brunch. We were bummed that he was not able to attend our ceremony with Liv.

Overall, I cannot recommend Liv enough. She's really is the officiant you've been looking for if you need someone who can help you customize your ceremony for your unique spiritual beliefs.

You should hire Liv- period!

Liv (& the Let There Bee Love team) made all of my dreams come true- I wanted a non-traditional wedding that was spiritual, yet not religious. The team was inclusive, kind, and open-minded.

Through Zoom videos & an in person meeting over dinner & drinks, Liv got to know us as a couple. By filling out intentional questioneers (curated by Liv) & random side-conversations, Liv captured “our vibe” and created the most raw and genuine ceremony script for our wedding- (we even got to read the script with Liv in person a week before the wedding at a German pub). It felt like you had a best friend by your side, someone who will go out of there way to get to know you and make your vision come to life.

Alongside Liv’s creative ingenuity and writing skills, she is also an outstanding Day of Coordinator. Planning and going through with a wedding felt daunting, but Liv carried all of the hard parts on iher shoulder Through planning, she kept me on track and finalized vendor communication. And the day of, she burnt our every fire (and there were a lot).

Let There Bee Love team acted as our MC, videographer, photographer, timeline guru, and they helped set up table center pieces, dessert tables, and helped cleaned up. They did it ALL- everything I dreamt of, Liv & the team made it happen.

My wedding would not be the same without them- it would of been scrappy- without flow. Plus, the price was right- we got more than what we paid for, if you can't tell, i really loved their services.

When our original officiant came down with Covid just days before the wedding, Liv stepped in and truly saved the day. We met with her over Zoom to make sure it was a good fit and we instantly knew that she would be perfect for our wedding.

We did not want any religious affiliation so we loved that she performs ceremonies for couples with a variety of beliefs and walks of life.

She performed the ceremony beautifully and we didn't have to worry about anything. The vows were printed for us, she had the rings, and is taking care of sending in our marriage license. I'm so happy we found Liv for our day!"

Meeting Liv was one of the best things to come out of our wedding planning process! We searched everywhere from Denver to the Mountains and the minute we got on the phone with Liv, we knew she would make our wedding day perfect.

 

She got to know us over Zoom and in person meetings throughout the year leading up to the wedding and created the most beautiful custom ceremony that all of our guests loved.

 

Liv calmed all of our pre-wedding nerves and answered every question big or small with so much kindness and understanding. We were worried about incorporating the unity ceremony, but it turned out to be one of the best parts of the service. It dissolved any seriousness and was a great start to the party we wanted!

 

We highly recommend going with Liv to build a unique ceremony that you will remember forever! Shout out to her husband, Phillip, for his assistance and support behind the scenes.

Liv coordinated our destination microwedding in Colorado and did such an amazing job!! We are SO glad we found her and hired her. She took so much stress off of my plate as a bride planning a destination wedding in a state I had never been to - I couldn't have done it without her.

 

Liv is extremely organized (which is obviously a great trait to have as a coordinator) so she kept everything on track and would check in with us often about all of the various details. She also made sure she knew our vision for the day and what was important to us and made it happen (down to all of the little details).

 

She's also such a sweet and genuine person person and from the first call with her we felt like good friends. I'm so thankful for Liv and her team who worked so hard to make our day magical - even building us a custom string light setup for our outdoor Airbnb reception!

 

Not everything went according to plan on the day of the wedding (which is to be expected), but she and her team were so incredibly flexible with all the changes and never made me feel more stressed - she took care of everything!! She's seriously magic. HIRE HER!! You will absolutely not regret it!!

Seriously she and her husband are the most amazing and wonderful people! I am externally grateful for how she stepped up and helped us with everything. I went into wedding planning convinced that we could do it on own own but it wasn't happening. Liv came to the rescue! They went above and beyond in making sure we were care for and had all our boundaries respected! She made our day amazing! Let her help you with the wedding of your dreams!

When David and I first came across Liv's website I just knew she had to be our officiant! I could feel how passionate and intentional she was about her work. She was exactly what I was looking for. I didn't want just any one officiating our wedding lol.

During the entire wedding process I was very intentional about the vendors we chose and I am soo grateful to have found Liv!

From the start, it felt as if we were just chatting with a friend and I loved how she made sure our ceremony was exactly what we imagined it to be.

Our ceremony was a huge deal for us we wanted it to be super meaningful not only for ourselves but our guest as well.

Many of our guests also mentioned how amazing Liv was!!

Book Liv for your wedding and you won't be disappointed!

Thank you Liv for doing an amazing job and for being a part of such a special day in our lives. I wish you and Phil continued success!!
