My name is Lisa Shoemake. I am authorized to perform weddings in the state of Arkansas. I believe that a marriage is not something created by law – it is two people who love and cherish each other and want to create a life together. I believe that whether you belong to a church or not, whether you are religious or not, and no matter what your beliefs, you deserve to have the wedding that you want – done your way.

I am a non-denominational, independent wedding officiant serving the state of Arkansas. More couples than ever are choosing to work with officiants like me. Why? Because I can help you design the ceremony you want and avoid the dreaded “cookie cutter ceremony syndrome” so your wedding will truly be a unique event. It can be large, small, religious, secular, inter-faith, contemporary, traditional, intimate, fun, fancy, fairy-tale or frivolous, but it will be the perfect expression of your love.

It has been said that the greatest gift you can give someone is your undivided attention and that is what I will offer you. I will sit down with you and we will discuss your vision of your ceremony and how we can make it a reality. I will help you with ideas for your ceremony, find resources, address your concerns and make planning your ceremony as stress-free as possible.

I will be honored to meet with you in person, talk on the phone or correspond by email (all at no charge!) to find out how we can work together to create the perfect ceremony for you.
