Introduction: Getting married -- how wonderful is that.. Congratulations! You've found someone to spend your life with. All the waiting will soon end. Now, you are looking for someone to take you in hand and plan your ceremony. This whole process is about what both of you want and need in your ceremony. Visit my website, noted below, to hear me sing. I am a licensed Wedding Officiant in the City of New York, and therefore, in any jurisdiction in the country. I have officiated for people of humanistic and secular commitments, Christians and Christians, between Christians and Jews, between Muslims and Christians, and for Jews and Jews. Committed love is committed love. Love and Life are honored in my ceremonies. While I don't speak Spanish, I have officiated many weddings in Spanish solely and bilingually, using a written script. It has brought smiles and tears in over 30 weddings. Todos estan contentos. Also, in Russian, German, Italian, Hebrew, and French. Since October 2020, I have officiated over 230 weddings. ****COVID UPDATE***** On August 2, I received the second Pfizer booster. Fridays from 2-7pm, and after 6PM on Saturdays. Clients have noted and appreciated that I am always — always — on time. 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 place for you. Ceremonies last between 7-25 minutes, depending. The Regular and Deluxe packages follow this general pattern. Opening Welcome Speech to the Couple Ring Exchange and Vows Signing the Marriage License Concluding Readings/Blessing Pronouncement I offer five packages: Signings, Enhanced Signings, Regular Ceremonies, Deluxe Ceremonies, and Jewish Ceremonies. Inquire for details. The $175 you see in my ad is for a Signing. Many couples have shared with me that the length of each is perfect – – not short, not long. I look forward to being the officiant you want to respond to. Wishing you a very happy life together. Daniel

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

Thank you very much Darlene, for your kind and supportive words. It makes me really happy to know that my efforts to create an warm and uplifting ceremony achieved their aim.

Thank you so much, Kim. It was a pleasure to officiate for you in the backyard of a family house. I was also glad to see to it that all the paperwork was done properly. That's part of the service I provide. I wish you and your wife much happiness and prosperity.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I charge neither the lowest or the highest fees in the area.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First, I like to meet in a video conference. I ask I about their hopes and plans, and what they’re looking for in a ceremony. I answer any questions they have about what I do and why, and whether I can be flexible in my approach. It always works out for the best.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a Masters degree in vocal performance from the Manhattan School of Music, and religious ordination from the Hebrew Union College in New York City. Also, graduate credits in chaplaincy training. Have been in the cantor field since 1989. Singing since I was child.
