    (25 reviews)

    Janet L.

    Peter was a wonderful Officiant for our Wedding! After the ceremony, many guests asked if he was a relative or a super close friend as he made our vows suit our personalities. His presentation was great in a fantastic tuxedo - very polished and a huge asset on our special day. I would reccommend Peter to anyone thinking about getting married. He is professional , poised, well spoken and perfect.

    Jen G.

    Hollis was really kind and easy going. I actually didn't meet him face to face until I got to the end of the isle on my wedding day, but we didn't really think we needed an in person meeting. He was very accessible via phone and email and he seemed to have a pretty clear picture of what we were going for. He's genuinely caring and well spoken.

One of my biggest inspirations continues to be Alex Polizzi. She is known in the UK as “The Hotel Inspector” and “The Fixer”. She possesses incredible business acumen.

  • Non Denominational Officiant

    "I'm Here to Help" - Anthony Foggia, NY/NJ Officiant

    (81 reviews)

    We are very happy to have Anthony being part of our special day! He is very responsive, professional and cooperative. We were looking for an officiant who offered reasonable price and were willing to accommodate our special arrangement for the ceremony - we planned a little prank. Anthony well fitted the bill. We met briefly for coffee before the wedding to go over the ceremony. It was a very productive meeting. On our wedding day, due to logistics issue, me and my husband were not quite on time and some guests arrive ahead of the party, but Anthony handled the situation with experience. He hosted the ceremony exactly as we wanted and the prank was successful. Everyone said it was memorable! Even after the wedding, he took time answering our questions regarding the marriage certificate. Overall, we are very thankful for him! Highly recommended!

    Rev Brad

    (79 reviews)

    Brad was an absolute pleasure to work with. We all met in person to make sure we were compatible and for him to get basic details (how religious we wanted it to be, how we met, etc). An ordained interfaith minister, he sent us a full script of the ceremony a couple weeks in advance of the wedding. While only a couple tweaks were needed, Brad worked them seamlessly into the ceremony. On the day of, Brad showed up on time and signed the license with us, then did an excellent job officiating the ceremony. He was comfortable and confident, mixing in a little humor, and talking more than anything else about the power of love, which was perfect. We received many comments about what a good job he did. It's not easy to officiate a wedding, but Brad made it look effortless. We'd recommend him without reservation.

    Rabbi Dr. Andy Dubin, Wedding Officiant for all Traditions

    (46 reviews)

    Working with Andy was awesome! I recommend Andy with 5 stars to conduct your ceremony. After our initial meeting with Andy, he gathered our ideas and sent us a script promptly. Andys expertise combined with our vision made our day memorable for all who attended our special day. After my first conversation with Andy, I knew he was the one because of the comfort and patience I felt from him. Thank you Andy for making the best of our ceremony!

  • Spiritual Wedding Officiant

    Happily Ever Blissful

    (41 reviews)

    My now-husband and I were very happy with Cindy's services at Happily Ever Blissful. After our venue abruptly closed (reBar in DUMBO), costing us $10,000, we decided to scrap our original wedding plans and have a wedding with just family. My family lives out of state, so we had to find a time when everyone could be there. That time turned out to be a week and a half in the future. I asked around for recommendations and Cindy was one of the first we got. She was quick to respond to my initial e-mail - it was actually faster than I expected - and was always very responsive and quick. Getting the contract signed and paid was very easy (we were able to use Chase QuickPay, which I LOVE). We signed the contract and answered a few questions late Friday and had a draft of the script by early Saturday afternoon. It was amazing. Cindy also took the initiative to set up a meeting with us before finalizing the ceremony script. Normally we would've wanted to meet before signing a contract, but it was such a rush that we just needed to find an officiant. It was a relief that we still got to meet with her before the wedding day and it helped to personalize the ceremony (she made the suggestion of doing a ring warming, which worked well for us). Cindy also speaks Spanish, which was fantastic, because my grandmothers don't speak English. She was incredibly flexible in figuring out which parts to do in both English and Spanish. She also gave us some great inspiration for writing our vows. On the day of the wedding, Cindy was on time, dressed professionally, and did an amazing job. We had a ceremony that was beautiful, personal, and certainly didn't feel like it had been put together as quickly as it was. I've already recommended her to others and will continue to do so. If you need an officiant, look no further!

    Our Wedding Officiant - NYC

    (25 reviews)

    It brings me satisfaction and joy to unite couples in marriage. I am a registered wedding officiant here in NYC. My diverse background has uniquely prepared me for a job as an officiant. I worked as a professional extra on shows, such as The Equalizer and Law and Order, after graduating from New York University's Theater Department in 1979. I've appeared in Off-Broadway and in films as well. My theatrical experience has taught me to feel at ease when speaking in front of large groups. Thus, I'm at ease officiating a wedding with four or 400 guests. I became a reiki practitioner and massage therapist, leaving the acting world behind. The ability to create a relaxing and calm environment was essential, and I've carried that skill with me as a minister. I believe it is my duty to provide couples with a thoroughly stress-free and pleasant wedding day, one that'll be treasured by everyone present, most importantly by the two people who are committing their love to each other.

    Rev. Adelaida was AMAZING! She performed the ceremony for us at this beautiful restaurant in Brooklyn. She was very communicative and prompt in her responses. She quickly made us feel like friends and was more than happy to discuss every tiny detail of the ceremony to ensure that it was exactly what we wanted. Without any doubt or hesitation, we then booked Adelaida for our October 14th ceremony. Patrycja & Ertan

    Pastor RL Ishmael Wedding Minister

    (19 reviews)

    Pastor RL Ishmael was a wonderful wedding officiant! I could not have asked for anything more. My wedding was on December 21st and he performed with elegance, humor and respect. Prior to my wedding we communicated a couple of times over the phone to discuss details. He broke down all the things I did not know about and was very informative. He also respected my wishes and tailored the ceremony to my husbands and my beliefs. I would absolutely recommend Pastor RL Ishmael to anyone that wants a beautiful wedding. Thank you so much Pastor!

    Interfaith Minister/Wedding Officiate

    (10 reviews)

    They say the heart of any wedding is the ceremony. If that is the case, than Reverend Lou and Reverend Britt (who performed our ceremony) made it beat loud enough for all NYC to hear! Together they brought kindness, soul, laughter, spirituality, professionalism, intimacy and joy to our exchange of vows. For my husband and I, standing in front of our loved ones on an outside terrace, they eloquently infused our love story and strong love for one another, into a ceremony that felt uniquely ours. Guests afterwards shared comments like: "I've been to tons of weddings and have gotten married but this is the best ceremony I have ever attended"; "It was so beautiful I couldn't stop crying (that was from our photographer!)"; and our favorite- "Your minister captured your love for each other like a fairy tale and made us all share in the magic of your marriage." Reverend Lou and Reverend Britt, thank you from the bottom of our newlywed hearts. You both are true gifts from God. We are truly grateful we chose you to officiate our wedding. To all our fellow bride & grooms/ bride & brides/ groom & grooms, reading this message- if you both desire a bespoke ceremony crafted in the image of your unique love story, if you want the heart of your wedding to beat loudly- you search has ended with Minister Lou and Minister Britt. Best of luck and lots of love to all, Scott & Mario

  1. #1 Coupling

    (50 reviews)

    Linda T.

    On July 6, 2015, Rev. Sondra Coupling performed my perfectly beautiful wedding ceremony. We planned the ceremony in a very short time span, and Sondra was available and on board from the inception. Sondra was always available to answer any questions we might have had via phone, text, and emails. Her professionalism is outstanding, and even during times were she knee in advance that she might have been indisposed due to other ceremonies she had to orchestrate, Sondra always informed me of these possible situations. The gift that she presented my husband and I was very thoughtful. As a woman of the Lord, Sondra radiates humbleness, patience, and peace. Unfortunately, I was late to the wedding, and Sondra exhibited nothing but complete patience and understanding. The day before the ceremony, Sondra held a conference call between my now husband and myself and ran through the ceremony with us. Everything was perfect and I would recommend Sondra to anyone looking for a wedding officiant. Wonderful service!

  3. #3 Happily Ever Blissful

    (41 reviews)

    Lily B.

    Cindy was a thrill to work with! My husband and I were married in June 2015. We booked with Cindy several months in advance and Cindy quickly provided us with a sample script and ideas for how to construct a unique ceremony. With her help, we created a ceremony that was meaningful and representative of our relationship. One of the traits that brought me to Cindy was her bilingualism! Our wedding guests made up a patchwork of English and Spanish speakers. Cindy worked with us to determine which parts of the ceremony should be spoken in both languages and which parts could be left as is. We included a Neruda poem in Spanish and a reading, "Union" by Robert Fulghum, in English. I had been worried that a bilingual ceremony might sound choppy or repetitive, but Cindy integrated the languages seamlessly. It was such a meaningful touch that was appreciated by all our guests. We would absolutely suggest Cindy to anyone who is planning a wedding - especially to those who want a bilingual ceremony!

    Patricia S.

    Rev. Mary Carroll has been really wonderful since the very first time we e-mailed. She answered all my questions, sometimes even at odd hours, and has been very helpful with lots of ideas to make our ceremony special. It's been a really nice experience bouncing ideas with her because she's just very pleasant to talk to. I had to re-schedule my original wedding date and she was very understanding about it. We got married just after New Year's and we were surprised to receive a lovely card from her before Christmas. She made us feel that she was really looking forward to our special day, and being an already stressed-out bride, Rev. Mary Carroll made me feel like I shouldn't be worried about her being there on time or whatnot. She always says, "Just let me know the date and time, and I'll be there!" She wrote a very lovely ceremony for us and came on time and all in all it was just very nice to have her marry me and my husband.
