Introduction: I personalize each ceremony that I perform to reflect the individuality of each couple. I love being a wedding officiant! It's an honor and a blessing to be part of someone's "love story". I live and officiate in NJ but am also fully licensed to officiate in NY. I have officiated many times on Staten Island, in Manhattan, and also on Liberty Island by our glorious Lady Liberty! Sadly, at this time, I am not traveling to Manhattan to officiate... but I will gladly officiate on Staten Island! I am a Pediatric Nurse, currently employed at a Preschool in Jersey City. I work September thru June, Mon-Fri 8:00am-4:00pm. Although my business hours reflect this, I am available to discuss officiating for you during weekdays when schools are closed for holidays or breaks! I have also been successfully fingerprinted and passed numerous background checks.

Cathy is great! She was so helpful, gave us great ideas, and was extremely responsive. She prepared touching vows and she practiced many times before the wedding. All of our guests are impressed by her. We would recommend Cathy to officiate your wedding!!!

Cathy was excellent to work with! Our officiant “dropped us” about a month before our wedding date due to a conflict and we luckily found Cathy. She was very responsive, delivered a personalized ceremony listening to what we wanted, and was fantastic to work with. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Cathy!

Cathy is very diligent and happy go lucky to work with. She agreed to officiate our wedding last minute, agreed to speak to our parents so that they feel okay, and explained to us everything patiently. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone, she is excellent at her work. Thanks Cathy for being a part of our intimate ceremony.
