    Barbara was very personable. She took time for us and was very patient with our quirkiness. She is laidback and was eager to tailor our wedding to us. We even change the ceremony detail on the day of wedding and she was awesomely accommodating. Thank you Barbara

    Rachel A.

    Gary did an excellent job of accompanying us in our preparations of the ceremony itself, during which he shared thoughts which we have noted and will bring with us on this new journey. His allocutions were personal and profound, without ever being too much or out of line with who we are. Gary kindly agreed to hike out in a trail to the side of the lake so we could celebrate in our preferred spot (not reachable by car). Also, his contact with our witnesses and ourselves put all of us at ease in what is an exciting yet stressful moment. Thank you Gary! -Maxie & Rachel

  6. #6 Weddings by Neal

    (12 reviews)

    Amanda M.

    Neal was a lifesaver! He is so easy to talk to and welcoming. He pretty much became my advisor on all things wedding. I asked his opinion about a number of things and he helped me make a couple of really hard decisions! His personality matched ours so perfectly, and was so calming to this extremely anxious bride! Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful. He worked with us to create something from our hearts as we did not want a "cookie-cutter" ceremony. I honestly cannot say enough good things about him. We are so grateful that he came into our lives. Thank you so much, Neal!!!

  9. #9 Hudson Valley Weddings

    (2 reviews)

    Maureen L.

    After being shocked at the price tag presented by my husband's pastor, I was in a bit of a panic given the short time frame til my wedding date. Jude Smith at Hudson Valley Weddings immediately put my mind at ease! She was attentive and thoughtful, guiding me and my husband to a ceremony that was perfectly tailored for us. I will remember it and how special my ceremony was forever, and I would completely recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant for their special day!

Thumbtack Spotlight

Sharon Rose LaVerda Weddings and Other Ceremonies

(58 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

What I mostly love about my job is meeting people who are in love and not only optimistic about the future, but really excited about it. Most are young and starting a family, some have been together quite a while and are just ready to legalize their union. Some are even older who are so happy to be in love and want to spend their days together. I love that I work with current and future happiness always. I work with love.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

My sister is a wedding officiant in New Jersey. I was a chaplain in a nursing home. It was a very rewarding thing to be and do but after several years, I was really realizing that it was often sad. One day after spending a long night with someone, I found myself going off the road on my way home and decided I was meant to take that as a sign to change. My sister said that with my background I should do what she does and be happy and have happiness around me. She was so right. I have met the most amazing people and have not had a minute of regret. I wish I had done it sooner.
