Welcome to my page, and 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 officiate your ceremony.
I don't speak Spanish, but I have officiated many weddings both in Spanish, and bilingually, using a written script. Todos estan contentos.
In May, 2000, I applied for and received a license to officiate weddings from the City of New York. It is recognized throughout the country, and beyond.
Please note that, given the new information about the very contagious Delta variant, I cannot risk officiating for people who are unvaccinated, and that includes every adult and teen guest. Masking, social distancing, and open windows will be required. I reserve the right to see vaccination cards.
Wedding couples have enjoyed the fruits of my career of singing classical and popular music, serving as a Jewish Cantor, wedding officiant, and spiritual caregiver. All of these interests have created meaningful and warm connections to people.
I live in Manhattan, and officiate
all over the TriState area.
I celebrate loving commitment: secular, non-denominational, interfaith, elopement, same-sex, as well as Jewish weddings, funerals, and unveilings. Several of my ceremonies have been in Spanish. I know some Russian, German, French, and Italian, as well. Religious… agnostic, atheist, secular, non-religious… All are welcome. What matters is love -- committed love.
Fridays from 2-7pm, and after 6PM on Saturday evenings.
On February 24, I received the second Pfizer vaccination. I prefer to work in circumstances of social distancing.
Clients have noted and appreciated that I am always on time.
AS OF JUNE 24 AT 12AM, VIRTUAL CEREMONIES ARE NO LONGER ALLOWED.
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.
I customize NYC marriage licenses by computer, my information and the witness information, just the way the City Clerk office likes it. Then, all we have to do in the ceremony is sign our names, not sit there writing. It helps make the ceremony flow.
Once it is signed by all, you will be legally married as of the date and time stated on the top right. At that moment, it becomes your legal proof. In New York City, you will then receive your certificate of marriage registration. With me, it takes only 10 business days, not 4 to 6 weeks
Ceremonies last between 7-25 minutes, depending. I ask questions, and send a questionnaire -- to make the ceremony personal and meaningful to you. Each wedding ceremony follows this general pattern:
Speech to the Couple
Ring Exchange and Vows
Signing the Marriage License
You can find me on Twitter (@danpincus) Facebook, and LinkedIn.
About shopping around: this shouldn't be hard. The back of your neck and your tummy will tell you if I can do a great job for you. If you feel it, your search can end.
I look forward to being the one to officiate a beautiful and meaningful ceremony for you and your guests.
Thank you for visiting. Wishing you health and happiness.
