I’ve enjoyed helping couples create a ceremony that reflects their values and intentions for their life together. I’m comfortable with large or small weddings, with inter-faith marriages, and with those who want a spiritual but not necessarily religious ceremony . I believe that couples choosing to get married should have the opportunity, if they wish, to participate in the creation of their own wedding ceremony. I have a lot of experience in helping couples find ways and words to honor their spiritual values and create a ritual that has meaning for them. Sometimes the ceremony looks very traditional and sometimes it is less so. In all cases I strive to create a mood and atmosphere that is sacred and heartfelt but not stiff and uncomfortable.

About

Father Jonathan was our officiant for our wedding on 1/17/2016. He was very responsive from the first time with contacted him. He met with us a couple of times to get to know us and help us on how to make this big day, an special, and unforgettable one. He walked us through the whole ceremony, step by step. We honestly feel that we couldn't have started our marriage life with a better blessing than his. He made the ceremony how we wanted it. He was not only a person to get us marriage that day, but also a coach/ advisor for what is to come in our marriage life. We are extremely happy that we found him. Our guest were also delighted by the way he conducted the ceremony and how meaningful everything was. We highly recommend him. He is very professional on what he does. He is open minded and will make your ceremony how you want it to assure to make it the best day of your life. That's how we feel now. You won't need to look for anybody else, you found the best officiant out there. There is one, very powerful event which occurred not too long ago which made a profound impression on me and affirmed my sense of call to the sacramental ministry. I had been reading and praying about the Gospel of John 12: 20-33 in preparation for a sermon I was going to preach. The line spoken by those Greek visitors mentioned kept repeating itself over and over in my mind: ‘we want to see Jesus’. I was outside on the playground with the children from St. Matthew’s School where I was first employed as pastoral liaison, and presently as a teacher, when little Ashley, a child from the kindergarten, came up to me and asked what kind of cell phone I had. I took it out and showed her; I don’t play games on it or download music, so I told her I just use it to talk to my friends and sometimes take pictures. Ashley asked if she could see my pictures and I said sure, was there anything in particular she wanted to see. She looked at me with her beautiful, brown eyes and said, “Yes, I want to see Jesus”. I still don’t know quite what to make of that: was it just some phenomenal, one-in-a-million coincidence that this child would make the same request of me that those Greek travelers made of Phillip in John’s gospel? I don’t know, but I thank God for that moment. It reinforced for me to dedicate my life to help others to ‘see Jesus’, through my words, actions and ministry.

About

Make your wedding a memorable experience that deeply reflects who you are, and the love and dreams you share with each other. As a wedding officiant who is also an ordained interfaith minister, I work with couples of all faiths and beliefs, to design and perform wedding ceremonies that can be either spiritual, religious, humanistic-secular, nature-based, or other themes, including mixed-faith relationships - whatever the couple experiences as true for themselves. Your wedding ceremony can be very elegant and elaborate, or very simple, or anywhere in between depending on your wishes. While the only parts required by law are the intent ("I Do") and the pronouncement at the end, the ceremonies that I officiate often include some or all of the following elements, again, according to what each couple wants: - Welcoming - Opening blessing or prayer - Reading or sharing (usually from family or friends) - Ritual - Music - Officiant address/homily - Exchange of vows and rings - Kiss (after pronouncement) - Closing blessing The actual content of the ceremony comes from our discussions. We can be as creative as you like! My services as a wedding officiant include the following: - Initial introductory conversation and ceremony overview - In-depth initial meeting with couple to discuss wedding logistics, details of ceremony, personal faith and beliefs, the joys and challenges of your relationship, marriage beliefs and goals. Discussion is based on completion of questionnaire by couple prior to meeting (which can also be by phone or Skype, if there is geographic distance involved). - Design and creation of ceremony. This can involve rewrites and additional discussions until it is exactly the way you want it. Also included, if desired, are suggestions for readings, music, blessings, rituals, vows, and ring exchanges. (I can also write your vows and ring exchanges, if you choose.) - Completion and mailing of your marriage license - Performing ceremony My fee range is $250 - $550, depending on the time and complexity involved (This will be determined during our initial conversation.). A 50% deposit is required at time of signing of written agreement which spells out all commitments by me and you. The balance is due on the day of the wedding. I am glad to answer any questions that you have. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Many blessings, Reverend Joy (Gary Shapiro)

About

I am a non-denominational interfaith minister and civil wedding officiant. I specialize in hand-crafted ceremonies that will be meaningful and memorable for you and your guests, but I am also available for quick and simple ceremonies throughout the Hudson Valley and the Tri-State area, both civil and spiritual in nature. I am often available on short notice with reasonable fees, and can supply a witness if needed. I work with people of all faiths, preferences and spiritual paths, especially if you feel spiritual but not religious. My favorite language is the language of love. I am a strong supporter of marriage equality, because I marry hearts, not genders. I am a winner of the 2013, 2014, and 2015 Officiant Awards from both Wedding Wire and The Knot. Every wedding deserves to be a special moment, one that you will remember for the rest of your lives. I bring warmth, joy, tenderness and laughter to all of my ceremonies, big or small, and couples consistently tell me I immediately put them at ease. I offer several ceremonies to choose from, in addition to ceremonies that are completely hand-crafted. These range from civil "courthouse" style ceremonies to ceremonies that are more spiritual, and all ceremonies can be customized by vows using my extensive resources or writing your own. Wishing you all the best on your wedding day! I look forward to hearing from you, so that I can help make it as meaningful as the love that you share.

Neal was a lifesaver! He is so easy to talk to and welcoming. He pretty much became my advisor on all things wedding. I asked his opinion about a number of things and he helped me make a couple of really hard decisions! His personality matched ours so perfectly, and was so calming to this extremely anxious bride! Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful. He worked with us to create something from our hearts as we did not want a "cookie-cutter" ceremony. I honestly cannot say enough good things about him. We are so grateful that he came into our lives. Thank you so much, Neal!!!
