We used Rev Judy as our officiant for our wedding. From the moment we first meet with her we hit it off right away and we knew we didnt need to search any further. She really takes the time to get to know you and she really creates a ceremony that is customized to you and your situation. Not only was she there but she showed up with just getting her appendix out less then 24 hours before our ceremony. All of our guest had complemented us on how wonderful, funny and creative she was. She also included all 4 of our kids so we could really become one family. We would 1000% recommend her to anyone who wants a reliable professional and personalized officiant.Jan 8, 2016Verified

Judith met with my fiancee and me for a couple hours to plan and personalize many details of our ceremony. She also found ways to incorporate each member of both of our families into the event. I'm very glad we found Judith, who is new to South Florida but who has years of experience officiating weddings in the Northeast, for our upcoming ceremony! Update: The ceremony itself was lovely. Judy has a resonant voice, directed the speakers and musicians perfectly, and even incorporated appropriate humor into the ceremony. My wife and I both feel Judy would be an excellent choice for just about any wedding (large, small; Christian, Jewish, secular; indoor, outdoor). We can't recommend Judy highly enough!Dec 24, 2014Verified

REV JUDY WAS EXCELLENT AND VERY UNDERSTANDING DUE TO ALL THE UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES THAT HAPPENED ON MY WEDDING DAY, SHE WAS PATIENT AND VERY WILLING TO WORK WITH US. SHE PREFORMED AND CREATED A BEAUTIFUL CEREMONY FOR US. SHE MADE OUR DAY TURN AROUND REAL QUICK. THANK YOU REV JUDY FOR ALL YOUR PATIENCE AND THANK YOU AGAIN FOR MAKING OUR DAY AS SPECIAL AS WE WANTED. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND REV JUDY SHE IS GREAT AT WHAT SHE DOES.Oct 31, 2016Verified

I hired Judy for my son's wedding. Loved her. She was stuck in traffic and called to let us know she was running late. They were coming here from out of state and kept in contact with them Prier to the wedding. Great personality, and I'm so happy I chose her!Apr 3, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Nothing that I do is complicated... I can write, create and make any couple that they honored me with performing their ceremony. It's about the ceremony, the tradition of marriage. It's not about the MONEY, I am CLERGY NOT A VENDOR......However since I DO travel to many different states my airfare & accommodations are always taken care of by the Couple. Remember what they say you get what you pay for and with me you even get more.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We meet 2-3 times before the grand day. We go over the ceremony at least 2 times so that the couple is familiar with it. We have fun just talking and getting to know each other, So that on that BIG DAY we are all so comfortable with each other, NO ONE is nervous.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Always reading and creating new material. Ordained INTERFAITH/ALL FAITH from The Church of Ancient Ways, ordained by Pastor April Gismondi. Lots of training from Fr. Joseph DeVincenzo Reform /Old Catholic Priest. Rabbi Sy Lowenheim and The Theological Interfaith and Jewish Seminary.
