Introduction: I love "moments." When I'm around town and see people about to take a selfie, I approach them and offer to take a group shot with their camera. When they trust me and say yes, that's a moment. When they look at the shot and smile, that's an even better moment. When I'm teaching and see the wheels turning, that's a moment. When a couple arrive and settle down and we begin, that's a wonderful moment. I work to provide warm, supportive, and efficient wedding moments for all kinds of my fellow humans. Ceremonies can be spiritual, secular, LGBTQ, interfaith, for the incarcerated, and, of course, Jewish. I received a license to officiate from the Clerk of the City of New York in 2001. Good in all states. A wide range of folks have sought me out to officiate their ceremonies: those with humanist and secular views as well as religious couples, and anyone inbetween. Straight and LGBTQ. Interfaith. Committed love is committed love. We all honor Love and Life in our ceremonies. While I don't speak it fluently, I have officiated many weddings en Español, both completely and bilingually, using a written script. It has brought smiles and tears of joy in over 30 weddings. Todos estan contentos. Also, in Russian, German, Italian, French, and Hebrew. Since October 2020, over 300 weddings. Fridays from 2-7pm, and only after 6PM on Saturdays. Clients have noted and appreciated that I am always — always — on time. Early, usually. Some NYC Facts: A New York State ceremony can't take place until 24 hours after the marriage license is issued. The license is good for 60 days. You don't need a New York City Parks permit to have a ceremony if your group is smaller than 20. BUT, having a permit reserves the venue for you. An important part of the process answering the questionnaire I’ll send you. really helps me create a ceremony focused on YOU. Ceremonies last between 7-25 minutes, depending. This is the pattern: Signing the Marriage License Opening Welcome Speech to the Couple Ring Exchange (optional) and Vows Concluding Readings/Blessing Pronouncement Jewish ceremonies follow the traditional pattern. Introductory blessings oncluding the one over wine, traditional wedding vow wording, the seven marriage blessings followed by a sip of wine, breaking the glass and signing the ketubah. All can be done in a variety of styles, but the structure remains. The price you saw in my thumbnail is what we call “the base price.” Transportation and other considerations are then factored in. Many couples say that the ceremony length is perfect – – not short, not long, and they like my pace. So, that’s it. Wishing you a very happy life together. I’d love to be the one to send you off, ceremony full of "moments." Would you like to get in touch? Daniel P.S. I sing.

Daniel is a really professional and open minded officiant. He came to our mini ceremony 15 mins ahead and be sure everything is well prepared. He also gave us suggestions on the process which helps us a lot! Our parents don’t know how to speak English, but he is super patient to communicate with them. Also our parents are glad you like our hand made dumplings :) 非常感谢以及荣幸Daniel成为我们的婚礼牧师!我们父母也非常开心你的到来!

Thank you, Chuyi. Yes, the dumplings were great, but not as much as you and Allen together in the ceremony, surrounded by family and friends. It was a beautiful celebration and I'm very pleased that you invited me to officiate. 谢谢你!

Cantor Daniel was a wonderful addition to our wedding. He accommodated us somewhat at the last minute and upstate! We also wanted my stepfather to help officiate the wedding, another request that Cantor Daniel graciously accommodated. He did a wonderful job of framing the ceremony while also giving my stepfather time to do his thing! And he even took the time to speak to my stepdad ahead of time to figure out the flow. We also loved that he had us fill out a questionnaire so he could get to know us and incorporate our responses and personality into the ceremony. His ceremony was sweet, funny, and even educational. And he has a BEAUTIFUL voice. Thank you so much, Daniel!

Dear Emily, This brings back sweet memories of the ceremony at the Little Stony Point Park location you chose. It was a beautiful occasion and I am grateful for the opportunity to play my part in it. I wish you and Adam the blessings of good health, family happiness, prosperity, and fulfillment in your lives. Daniel

It was a great experience working with Daniel. He is punctual, informative and makes sure the process goes smoothly before, and the day of the wedding. You can tell he is passionate about being an officiant. He is very responsive as well and gathers details about the couple to make the wedding more personal. Highly recommended!

Thank you, Metehan. It was a pleasure to officiate for you and your friends on the landing across from Bow Bridge in Central Park. A really sweet encounter. Also, I appreciate the specificity of your comments here. Very few do that. Wishing you and Jiaqi a wonderful life together. Daniel

Thank you, Cheryl. Knowing that what I provided was what you were looking and hoping for is music to my ears. I recall you saying that it wasn't at all what you were expecting; I'm glad for that. Wishing you and George, and your family, only the best. Daniel
