Congratulations on your engagement! My name is Lissin Lev Chaya, and I am a Wedding Celebrant and Officiant serving Pacifica, California, the San Mateo Coast and the greater San Francisco Bay Area. I'm so glad you found me. It would be my honor to guide you in co-creating the personal, authentic, custom wedding ceremony of your dreams.
Do you want your wedding ceremony to be meaningful and personal, and reflect you and your values? Are you looking for an officiant who goes the extra distance to help you feel calm, grounded and present on your wedding day?
Your wedding day is a moment out of time on your journey together. I support you as you step into your commitment to each other with clear intentions, fully present and connected to each other and your loved ones. Whatever type of ceremony you desire, whether an intimate elopement on the beach or a grand celebration with family and friends, I cultivate a joyful, comfortable, respectful and relaxed atmosphere.
I get to know the two of you and what is important to you.
I will listen to your love story, your hopes and visions, and together we will craft the perfect wedding ceremony. Whether spiritual, secular, religious, interfaith, cultural, or civil, I will write a ceremony that feels authentic to you and your relationship. Traditional or eclectic or anywhere in between, we can draw on customs and traditions that resonate with you and create our own as well.
From the moment we decide to work together through the rehearsal and the wedding day itself, you can trust that I will be there to facilitate your ceremony journey and support you so that you can be present with each other, your community and what is really important. I will illuminate what is unique about your relationship and the reasons why you want to spend the rest of your lives loving each other.
As your Life-Cycle Celebrant®
• I offer you a complimentary meeting to get to know each other and talk about your ceremony dreams and visions
• I am available by telephone and email for unlimited ceremony support and questions
• I offer you 100% approval over your custom ceremony script
• I offer you personal wedding vendor resources and referrals
• I coordinate ceremony logistics with your vendors to support you in a peaceful and relaxed wedding day
• I joyfully and efficiently guide your wedding rehearsal
• I officiate your unique, heartfelt, and authentic wedding or commitment ceremony
• I send you a beautiful Keepsake Copy of your ceremony for your memories.
Choosing your Officiant is a highly personal process. It is important to feel a connection with the person who will be leading your ceremony, and each Celebrant brings their own gifts to the table. My job is to be a calm, grounded presence to hold your ceremony space and help you and your guests fully absorb and *enjoy* your celebration.
I invite you to contact me for a no-obligation meeting over coffee or tea to see if we are a good fit. Please call me at 650.455.8438 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time. I offer video conferencing as well for my long-distance couples. I look forward to hearing from you!
~Praise for Lissin~
I can't say enough good things about Lissin and how happy we were to have her officiate our wedding. Her beautiful singing voice, reverence for spirituality, and dedication to personalizing our ceremony all helped to create one of the best days of my life. All of that said, one of my favorite things about Lissin was her grounding presence which held a sacred space for us and our community."

We loved the ceremony and the peaceful, loving attitude Lissin used in delivering it. Hire Lissin and there is no way you will be disappointed!" ~Lauren Mack & Alex Janus, Fremont, CA
