    (44 reviews)

    Ekaterine E.

    This service was so invaluable to my wife and myself the words and manner in which the officiant described our love for eachother was more than we could have thought of ourselves. The ceremony was unforgettable I could hear all the oohs and ahhs behind me as we repeated to each other what the officiant so beautifully put together. I would recommend 100 % and glad my first and only time was with this company it was unforgettable.

  8. #8 Hand in Hand Matrimonial Services LLC

    (36 reviews)

    Katie F.

    Reverend Savage gave me the wedding ceremony of my dreams - for that I will always be grateful. Rev. Savage initially came highly recommended from the venue and we later connected on thumbtack. He worked with my husband and I every step of the way, helping us with our vows, marriage license and readings. Let me start by saying, I was nervous to have a wedding outside on site as oppose to in a church. Coming from a highly Catholic family, I knew it was going to be a challenge. Reverend Savage was able to address the concerns of my family. He is a people person to the core. When we invited him to our rehearsal dinner he put everyones mind at ease but left my family saying "what a great guy, he really knows what he is doing." Through a collaborative process, we chose readings and created an outline for the ceremony (husband and I tearing up through each draft of beautiful words). He was always incredibly responsive. The end result was something above and beyond what I could have ever imagined. He struck the perfect balance between religious and light leaving the highly religious crown pleased. Everyone came up to me after to say that was the best ceremony they have ever been a part of. They're all right - it was the best. And so is Reverend Savage.

Common Ground Ceremonies

(1 review)

What do you love about your job?

As an Officiant, I am so inspired by all of the wonderful couples I meet from all over the world and hearing their love stories.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I had already been working as a professional musician in the wedding business for 12 years. I was approached by a friend to officiate their wedding and I completely fell in love with the process.

Describe your most memorable project.

I have so many great wedding experiences to share but I remember when I first started performing weddings and the Marriage Equality Law had just been passed in New York. I was contacted by a couple from Dallas who had already been together for 35 years and couldn't wait to come to the city where they first met to legally marry. They were the sweetest people I had ever met and even after being together for so many years, they were still brought to tears at their wedding and never thought they would live to ever see that day arrive.

    (98 reviews)

    Vanessa E.

    I'm a last minute type of person, so looking for an officiant was a hard task to pull off. The good Lord sent Joe my way! Even though Joe is from a different faith vs my own but he was wonderful to work with. He let me tailor my ceremony how I thought it would fit our needs and wants. His wife is also a lovely woman to talk with. I couldn't have been more pleased with how we were treated. To have him marry me and my husband within 24 hours of talking to him and being so professional at it, I am thinking of hiring him to do my sons christening. I would highly recommend him for any event! Talking to Joe is like talking to an old friend!

  2. #2 Rev Brad

    Richard R.

    We were looking for a wedding officiant to perform a small ceremony at a restaurant in Manhattan. We picked Rev Brad out of a list of quite a few responses and we could not be happier with the outcome. Rev Brad was extremely responsive to any questions and communications. He gave us many options to add to his basic marriage ceremony. We opted for his basic ceremony with one additional reading. It was perfect. We had so many compliments on his ceremony. Rev Brad's unique twist on the wording of the ceremony was awesome. It had us both in tears and many of our guests also. It could not have been any better!!!! Also, I would like to add that Rev Brad's professionalism was amazing. Even though he was dealing with a personal loss in his own life, he still was able to give a fantastic ceremony without missing a beat. I would recommend him to everyone. Thank you, Rev Brad !!!!

    I don't have a 100 stars but I wish I did! Cathy, by far your work was amazing. I was looking for a Spanish language bilingual officiant for my civil ceremony and I couldn't have chosen anyone but the best. In addition to your flexibility before the wedding, during the wedding and after everyone enjoyed the ceremony and the poem during the butterfly release. Your work was superb and what I would recommend to others is the pre-marriage course; it was much needed. I love your patience, dedication, and passion for your work. It shows in the work you do and I would totally recommend you to anyone getting married or wanting to take the marriage course. Thanks Cathy! Our best, Luis and Zully :*)

I could sing his praises but my guests were awed by his presentation and entire package. He's completely professional but he balances this with sincerity and humor. He kicked off the night and started the rest of my life with a wonderful husband. Thank you Peter from the bottom of our hearts. Kisses.

  7. #7 Rabbi Gary Katz

    (14 reviews)

    Cathy A.

    Rabbi Gary Katz officiated at our marriage ceremony on Saturday, August 8, 2015 at Bear Mountain, New York. His presence was warm and enthusiastic. Prior to our wedding, he answered our questions and taught us the significance of the chuppah as both symbolic of the home (partially enclosed) and open, thus welcoming the community as family. This notion was particularly appropriate to us since we designed our celebration to include two days of family reunion. We wanted the event to be as much about family, friends, and community, as about the joining of two people. At the ceremony Rabbi Katz taught about the commitment of marriage, reminding us with the analogy of one of Moses followers walking into the Red Sea until he was "all in" after which the waters parted. The result is one of the most memorable and beautiful experiences of our lives. Guests expressed their warm impressions of Gary. His personality and sentiment are evident in the photographs of his loving and smiling countenance as we embraced after being pronounced husband and wife. We hope to maintain a friendship with Rabbi Katz into the future.

    We hired Hollis to officiate our small elopement ceremony in Central Park. From the moment we first spoke on the telephone to the completion of the ceremony, he was nothing but wonderful to us! He was very responsive, professional, warm and accommodating. He helped us tailor our vows and ceremony readings to match our desires and was patient when we had to adjust our schedule -- all with a big smile and a calm, warm, positive demeanor. My new husband and I highly recommend Hollis! You won't regret hiring him as your officiant.
