Liz O'Brien is an independent, non-religious officiant
Why do I officiate? I presided over my first wedding in 1994, doing several more for friends and family over the years. I opened my services to the public in 2009 and have been busy ever since, guiding a beautiful diversity of couples through their marriage ceremony at wedding venues, resorts, hotels, gardens, restaurants, parks, living rooms, backyards and secret spots in the desert.
My feelings for human partnerships are genuine, and I pull -- from the depths of my heart and experience -- my love for the connections we make in the human family. I work creatively (and without judgment) to make your wedding a fulfilling and memorable experience for you and your guests.
On a personal note, I am a native Tucsonan who has lived in Phoenix since 1990. I hold a B.A. and an M.A. in Communication from the University of Arizona and the University of Maryland respectively, and have nearly three decades of college teaching on my resumé. I’ve been married for many years and enjoy a large network of friends and family. You'll often find me biking around Midtown, at the yoga studio, or out walking our adorable scruffy terrier, Mr. Bingley.
