We chose Leslie for her eastern world and naturalistic approach. She custom wrote all of our vows and had great ideas that allowed us to include our children (and heritage) into the ceremony. Leslie did a fabulous job and we would recommend her to others. Thank you Leslie!

We hired Leslie as our officiant and couldn't be happier! She was knowledgeable about the process and really took the time to get to know us as a couple so it felt real. She does a beautiful job creating and finding the words to describe our journey to marriage and we were so pleased!!! She was attentive to our needs and extremely supportive. She also was kind and helped us out with some frames for our wedding décor!! Leslie has a calming presence that was helpful on the day of and through our planning process. We would highly recommend her!!!! Her cost was very reasonable too!

Leslie really put on a very personal very unique wedding ceremony for us. She even drove by the place Stirling and I met so she had a better idea of where we are coming from.
She took a great deal of time getting to know us. She refrenced these personal details in the ceremony. Like my spinning wheel and Stirling's programing profession.
I highly suggest her! She assured me from the first time we met her that if she is doing the wedding ceremony I don't have anything to worry about. It was wonderful.

Leslie was more than I could have hoped for in a wedding officiant. Neither myself nor my husband belong to a church, and I was worried about having a ceremony by some random officiant that felt an impersonal and generic. Leslie was recommended by a mutual friend and I am so grateful! She took the time to get to know us and worked with us to get our ceremony exactly right. She listened to feedback and I wa impressed how she was able to distill all our thoughts and hopes for the wedding into a cohesive ceremony.
Beyond the ceremony, she's fun, creative and enthusiastic. She's been around the Wedding Block a time or two and was very helpful with ideas and planning and, in general, keeping me de-stressed and headed down the aisle. Obviously, I can't say enough positive things about the experience we had or recommend her highly enough.

Leslie was a wonderful officiant! She provided us with lots of choices and opened our eyes to the possibilities of creating a beautiful ceremony that reflected our dreams of being married. She guided us in selecting the right readings and vows and took as many opportunities (phone, skype and in person meetings) as she could to get to know us as individuals and as a couple. She made it feel like we were creating the ceremony, all we needed to do was put the pieces together. She was completely open-minded and welcoming of our diverse interests. Leslie also directed the ceremony rehearsal and made it fun and stress free! It was an empowering experience having the ability create a unique ceremony and amazing experiencing it as it all come together. Leslie made our wedding day special and sacred and we are blessed to have found her.

We couldn't have accomplished such a successful wedding event without the guidance of Leslie Johnson. Her advice, input and knowledge of how a wedding ceremony should flow was outstanding. Her many years experience as an officiant AND a caterer is really what was so valuable, and her decorating expertise and hands-on assistance (that we desperately needed) went above and beyond our expectations! People still talk about our wedding and I have received so many compliments about our officiant; it was the best wedding ceremony I have ever been to :)

My husband and I got married in September, and we could not be happier with Rev. Leslie Johnson's services! She was an amazing officiant--thoughtful, respectful, empowering.
She let us personalize the ceremony as much as we wanted, which was important to us. Leslie also found a way, with her beautiful choice of words, to unite our multi-faith backgrounds/beliefs. (And this is coming from me, who is a writer by profession.)
Leslie met with us several times at our venue to make sure we felt comfortable with all the little details, too. It definitely made us less nervous for the big day.
We highly recommend Leslie at Positively Charmed--especially to interfaith couples like ourselves!

We were married this fall and were lucky enough to have Leslie do our ceremony. She was very flexible with planning our ceremony and let us have input. The entire ceremony was truly us. We had many compliments on how personal the ceremony was. She was comfortable to work with and answered all of my questions quickly. We had planned to do a unity candle but our wedding day was windy. She offered to stop at the store, pick up sand and vases and worked in a sand ceremony instead. Truly above and beyond!

We met with 2 officiants and I knew right away that Rev Leslie Johnson was the one. She has a passion for making the day special and she created a custom ceremony that could not have been more beautiful. She also worked with the photographer and DJ to make sure everything was in place and everyone knew what to do. It was perfect!
