We can't think of anyone else who we would have wanted to perform our wedding ceremony than Joel Grossman. He met with us twice prior to our wedding, one time for 2 hours to understand what would make it most meaningful for us. He understood us perfectly, made terrific suggestions for readings and music, and worked with us on the sequence of events. And, it all turned out perfect! Almost everyone present told us that the ceremony was the most beautiful and meaningful one they had ever attended. We highly recommend Joel Grossman to officiate at your wedding!Jun 2, 2015
Joel took time with us before and so helped us be clear on our goals and challenges in this marriage. He officiated with grace and honored all we wanted. He is an outstanding person to help hold any Union between two people to embark on this deep commitment.May 30, 2015
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $100 for each meeting, $100 for a rehearsal, if needed, and $150 for the wedding. I can be flexible on these charges based on an understanding of special circumstances.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?As an interfaith minister, my aim is to help people find meaning and fulfillment in their lives, whatever the event, or subject they wish to address, is.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?To make sure that the officiant you hire gets to know you, not just make a plan over the phone or just have one planning session with you. I meet with couples twice, the first session is to get a good understanding of what what getting married means to you, and the second to create the service elements that will have the most meaning for you.
