About

My wife and I hired Barbara Berlin as our wedding officiant for our wedding and she was absolutely amazing! Shannon and I flew from Florida to Albany, NY to get married since NY honors the same-sex marriages. Once we got our license we immediately started looking for an officiant. Barbara was the first to respond and had the most reasonable prices. She met us in Washington Park and waited with us while the rain passed and performed the ceremony in the most professional fashion that also suited our morals and beliefs. I would highly recommend her! Thank you again Barbara! ~ Amy & Shannon Chenoweth

Tina was hired to marry my fiancé and I on very short notice (within 2 days of the ceremony), pulling through without a hitch. She arrived at the time we agreed upon and ready to go right away. She had even altered our vows to our liking per our request. Tina was personable, professional, and very kind. I would whole heartedly recommend her to anyone else who may be looking for a wedding officiant (and for a fantastic price!).

Sharon was our wedding officiant and we were very pleased that we chose her. I had exchanged emails and phone calls with her a couple weeks to a week before my wedding and she had offered us a few different ceremony speeches to look through and choose what one we liked the most. A couple days before the wedding I was having some problems with my license, and when I called her she was very calming and helpful to me, that brought me back to a better state of mind. She is a very kind and helpful woman and I appreciate all she did for me. When the day of the wedding came, and she arrived early. I introduced our guests to her as they arrived and everyone liked her too. Unfortunately we were running behind, and even though she had things to do after the ceremony, she was always professional. I did feel terrible because we were running behind. Our ceremony was beautiful. Sharon did a wonderful job, and myself and my husband were very, very pleased. I would not hesitate to recommend Sharon to anyone that was thinking of getting married. Thank you so much. Judy and Jason.

Peter was amazing. I gave always dreamt of my wedding day since i was a little girl, and with the help of Peter and what he brought to the day, my day surpassed my dream ten fold. Between the quick thinking of my husband, and the heart warming, soul clenching, memorable and true words of Peter, my wedding day will be one to be talked about for years to come. Thank you so much Peter! I definitely want you at our renewal in a few years. I cant imagine doing it all over again without you.

About

Father Jonathan was our officiant for our wedding on 1/17/2016. He was very responsive from the first time with contacted him. He met with us a couple of times to get to know us and help us on how to make this big day, an special, and unforgettable one. He walked us through the whole ceremony, step by step. We honestly feel that we couldn't have started our marriage life with a better blessing than his. He made the ceremony how we wanted it. He was not only a person to get us marriage that day, but also a coach/ advisor for what is to come in our marriage life. We are extremely happy that we found him. Our guest were also delighted by the way he conducted the ceremony and how meangniful everything was. We highly recommend him. He is very professional on what he does. He is open minded and will make your ceremony how you want it to assure to make it the best day of your life. That's how we feel now. You won't need to look for anybody else, you found the best officiant out there.

About

Reverend Gary Shapiro was the Officiant at our wedding on 10/9/15. Overall this was a great experience. We had several enjoyable conversations with Gary before the wedding. He had us fill out a questionnaire which he used to get to know us better and to get an idea about how we view our relationship and marriage. He incorporated this into our ceremony and made it very personalized. My husband and I are not religious, but Gary was very accommodating of our beliefs and tailored our ceremony to this. We were very happy with our experience with Gary and with our ceremony the day of the wedding. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone looking for a wedding officiant. Thanks!

About

Reverend Neal was just outstanding! Right from the beginning he guided us completely through the marriage process from customizing the ceromony with a long phone call and a personal meeting, organized rehearsal, a a beautiful day of ceromony! All my family commented on how lovely the ceromony was myself and the majority of my family is catholic and it really didn't miss anything from a church wedding! We were married on site at the Franklin Plaza and I would highly recommend reverend Neal to perform your marriage. Love Melissa and Jeremy Reed

Rev. Warren Maas was great!! He is a very friendly guy and was always early for our meetings. We met over breakfast and we "clicked" right away. He assured me that it was his passion to perform ceremonies and unite two people who love each other. He even drove over an hour to make it to our rehearsal before the wedding and made that same drive two days later for the actual ceremony. He was very professional and made sure our ceremony went as planned. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for a wedding officiant!!

Reverend Richard Moore performed my and my husband's wedding ceremony with such grace, generosity and attentiveness!! His effort to be of assistance in any way he possibly could, made my husband and I feel VERY considerate of his GOODNESS!! Reverend Moore did not charge us a dime to come together in Covenant with our Father GOD, as most Reverends, Pastors, and Ministers does. I thank GOD for Reverend Moore because he showed us what a TRUE and PURE Man of GOD really looks like ;-) He was very humble in assisting us to perform our wedding our own special and unique way, he was courteous and friendly with our small but hilarious group of famly and friends, he was overall OUTSTANDING!! -Sytia Moore-Gray

Remy did an outstanding job as the officiant at my daughter's wedding on Sunday, October 4, 2025. It was a beautiful and personalized ceremony. My friends and family all thought he was a friend of our family and knew my daughter. In truth, we were Blessed to get his name and contact info from the Thumbtack website. He took the time to meet with her and personalized the ceremony and vows using what he learned when he met them. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Remy if you are looking for a meaningful and thoughtful wedding ceremony. Everybody at the wedding commented on what a beautiful ceremony he did!! Thank you Remy for starting their marriage with such loving and beautiful words!!!

About

I am a non-denominational interfaith minister and civil wedding officiant. I specialize in hand-crafted ceremonies that will be meaningful and memorable for you and your guests, but I am also available for quick and simple ceremonies throughout the Hudson Valley and the Tri-State area, both civil and spiritual in nature. I am often available on short notice with reasonable fees, and can supply a witness if needed. I work with people of all faiths, preferences and spiritual paths, especially if you feel spiritual but not religious. My favorite language is the language of love. I am a strong supporter of marriage equality, because I marry hearts, not genders. I am a winner of the 2013, 2014, and 2015 Officiant Awards from both Wedding Wire and The Knot. Every wedding deserves to be a special moment, one that you will remember for the rest of your lives. I bring warmth, joy, tenderness and laughter to all of my ceremonies, big or small, and couples consistently tell me I immediately put them at ease. I offer several ceremonies to choose from, in addition to ceremonies that are completely hand-crafted. These range from civil "courthouse" style ceremonies to ceremonies that are more spiritual, and all ceremonies can be customized by vows using my extensive resources or writing your own. Wishing you all the best on your wedding day! I look forward to hearing from you, so that I can help make it as meaningful as the love that you share.

Ron was very helpful to us. We needed to find an officiant at a very short notice, about 2 weeks. Ron's response was immediate even though he was already booked for the time we wanted. He offered some alternative times but we were set on our original 4pm ceremony. Ron said he'd help us find someone new, and sure enough, within an hour we had the perfect officiant. Ron continued to work with us and the officiant, writing and editing the ceremony and joining in on all our phone meetings. We were very grateful to have found him.
