About Reverend Orsella

As an ordained wedding officiant, I have been officiating ceremonies since 2005, but officially launched Serenity Ceremonies by Rev. Orsella on August 29, 2016.  As the recipient of multiple five-star reviews on Wedding Wire, I am proud to have received Wedding Wire’s Couple Choice Award. I absolutely love writing a great wedding story and I’m excited to begin crafting your fairytale. 


Love Notes

I was a bit nervous about choosing an officiant for our wedding, but as soon as my husband and I met Rev. Orsella, we knew that we wanted to book her. Thank you Rev. Orsella for helping make our day magical!

Using Serenity Ceremonies by Rev. Orsella for our wedding was the BEST decision we made. Rev. Orsella made us feel comfortable and at ease. You will not be disappointed by Serenity Ceremonies by Rev. Orsella.
— Freddie & Cindy Harold
Rev O. was absolutely amazing, from our first phone conversation to the day of the wedding. We agreed we wouldn’t make a decision until after our first meeting — but we hired her on the spot!
— Olo & Gisselle Pinnock

Getting To Your #IDo

During our initial no-cost consultation, we'll determine your ceremony expectations. From your love story, and with your complete input, I will design a unique, loving, enchanting, and memorable wedding ceremony that will capture all your hopes and dreams for your special day. Your ceremony can include unity ceremonies such as lighting candles, handwashing, jumping the broom, tree planting, or whatever your heart desires. My goal is for you to walk away remembering the moment you said, “I Do!”

Additional Serenity Experiences

The Serenity Journey
(Pre-Marital Spiritual Counseling)

Through the Serenity Journey, traditionally known as pre-marital counseling, you and your fiancé will participate in readings and activities that help create a spiritual foundation for your marriage. The Serenity Journey includes five sessions, each typically lasting one hour.


Vow Renewal Services

The perfect gift to your marriage is to constantly keep it fresh and renewed.  Vow renewal services with Serenity Ceremonies by Rev. Orsella will help you design a ceremony that captures the love you have built over the years.


Destination Weddings
(Domestic & International)

In most states, a copy of the clergy’s ordination paperwork is the only proof of authenticity needed for a member of Serenity Ceremonies to officiate your wedding outside of Connecticut.  In all cases, foreign or domestic, our staff will research and retrieve the necessary documents to ensure your wedding is officiated legally.
