    Rabbit Rabbit Ceremonies

    (7 reviews)

    I've been bringing couples together since 2006. I tailor every couple's ceremony to make it unique and exactly what they are looking for. I don't do anything "cookie cutter" - I get to know everyone and make the ceremony about the individual(s). With Rabbit Rabbit Ceremonies, we offer more than just a ceremony: it's an experience you'll never forget. I love working with people! I enjoy all the types of ceremonies I perform, from weddings & renewals, to celebrations of life, blessings to passings. Everything I do is from the heart and every person I work with is special to me.

    Justice of the Peace Wedding Officiate

    (2 reviews)

    As an elected Town Court Justice in NYS, I have the honor of officiating at marriages throughout New York State. A couple who wish to marry in NYS must apply in person for a marriage license to any town or city clerk in NYS. The application must be signed by both applicants in the presence of the clerk. After the marriage license has been issued, the ceremony may not take place for 24 hours. However, after the day the license is issued it is valid for 60 calendar days. A marriage license issued by a town or city clerk in NYS (outside NYC) costs $40, and includes the issuance of a certificate of marriage Registration. There is no requirement in NYS for a premarital examination or blood test to get a marriage license. You will have to prove to the marriage license issuing town or city clerk, your age and identity. Proof can be provided by a birth certificate, baptismal record, naturalization record, or census record. AND, either a driver's license, passport, current employment picture ID, or an immigration record. Information about any previous marriages must be supplied as well. One or both parties may elect to change their surname upon marriage by entering the new name in the marriage license application. More information about this process can be obtained from the issuing marriage license town or city clerk. Besides the marriage officiant, you must have at least one additional witness who will sign the marriage certificate. Although there is no age limit for such witness, and parents often wish to include a child in the momentous event, please consider that the witness must be competent to testify in a court proceeding as to what he or she witnessed.

  • Interfaith Wedding Ministries

    (18 reviews)

    As well as officiating weddings, I am experienced at Spiritual Relationship Counseling, and am happy to speak with you via FaceTime or Skype at your convenience. What I enjoy most about performing weddings is meeting all the couples involved and learning their stories. How did you meet each other? How long have you been together? What is it you are looking for in an officiant? How involved will your friends and family be in the ceremony? What kind of assistance would you like me to provide?

Thumbtack Spotlight

Joseph Kolakowski, DD - Wedding Officiant & Public Speaker

(103 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I really love working in wedding ministry because I get to meet new people and visit new places. It offers an outlet for my public speaking talent and my outgoing personality. I love that I help people and play an important part at times of joy for many couples. I love how Thumbtack offers flexibility by allowing me to decide what leads I want to bid on.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I was a rabbi in a small synagogue, and they were running out of funds. I had to find a way to raise funds to continue my ministry. I discovered the idea to be a non-denominational wedding minister to serve people of all backgrounds. I started this ministry and found it to be a great way to make extra money and travel around. I learned a lot about this business, and found Thumbtack to be the best source of quality leads.

    Nova Premium Entertainment

    (3 reviews)

    My wife and I hired Blake and Nova Entertainment for our wedding. Weddings can be a crazy period of time for anyone planning them. When you have someone that can take some of that worry off of your plate, you are eternally grateful. Blake provided that for us. He met with us at our home and went over the music do's and dont's. Blake set our mind at ease. On the actual day, he kept the party going all night long. Our guests even commented on his music choices throughout the entire reception at how appropriate and well placed they were. I have been to several weddings in Rochester and I have to say that the amount of people that were on our dance floor was exponential to other weddings. I will always use Blake and Nova for any of my party and DJ needs. Since our wedding, we have actually sought him out for trivia as well at our local bar, where he does a wonderful job. Blake you ROCK!! For those reading this review, if you are getting married book this company and you will have the wedding of your dreams set to music.

    A wedding is a union of two beautiful and unique individuals, and your wedding should reflect that. I believe in a personal approach in which your personalities should be given an opportunity to shine through making the ceremony as memorable as the reception.

  • Officiant for Wedding Vows

    Stephen Melkanos - DJ, Officiant

    (1 reviews)

    With over 7 years of experience in deejaying, I've recently started performing wedding ceremonies, as well. I take the same one-on-one approach to both, talking to you through the process, finding out what you want to make the day special, and making sure that you have the tailored experience that you're looking for. My goal is to understand you well enough to make your celebration come out right. Pagan, and "spiritual-but-not-religious" are specialties when it comes to ceremonies. My rates are very reasonable. I offer a package deal. Book me to DJ your wedding, and you're entitled to my performing the ceremony for half price. (If the ceremony and reception are close enough, of course.) As an added bonus, I'm also an artist, suppose you want one of your wedding photos immortalized as a painting. For an equally reasonable rate, I will use your photo as a model for an acrylic painting on canvas.

    Turtle Dreams

    I have "a way cool family-friendly, earthy, groovy place" available for outdoor events, although you don't have to have your event at Turtle Dreams for my event planning, wedding officiation, group art projects, kava kava ceremonies, didgeridoo storytelling or entertainment. Are you looking for the different? You found me! I develop one-of-a-kind packages, and I will work within you budget to create fabulous memories. Do you want to make a totem pole with all of your guests' handprints, have a bonfire and drum circle, be led to a stone altar accompanied with a chorus of bull roarers or something else that's unusual? I am your guy!

  • Wedding Officiant

    Reverend Michelle

    Don't know what a wedding officiant is? Don't worry, a wedding officiant is someone who is legally allowed to marry people. This works out well for people under many different circumstances. They may not be a member of a faith community. There may be different religions in the relationship. For a wedding officiant, this is no problem. This is your day! It should reflect you and your spouse in every way. It is my mission to create a ceremony that does just that. My ceremonies are custom-built for each couple. This reflects their individual dreams and desires on that special day. By working together, we can create your perfect day. Many of the couples that I have been lucky enough to join together have commented on how important this personalization was for them. The benefit of using my services is affordability. It seems that no matter what you do for your wedding, you will be spending an arm and two legs. Please review my packages and fees section on my website, and compare.

  • Female Wedding Officiant

    Memorable Ceremonies

    Relationship counseling can be fun because I do short-term solution-oriented counseling. People love that I tell stories they can relate to; they generally last for 3 to 5 sessions and people go away feeling good about themselves. My joy is performing weddings. Part of that is helping people to understand how they got to be who they are. I do a genegram (family behavior history which is often great fun considering family dynamics). Occasionally, some counseling happens here and then we meet again to write the wedding. Each meeting is about an hour and a half. I will do the rehearsal, and there is a charge for that depending on mileage ($50+). The couple makes personal choices for readings. We three write the weddings, and the couple chooses what words or even letters get to stay or go. People love the personal feel this has. No wedding is like any other. The couple is free to bring readings they are fond of for we three to include. We can do much of this by Skype!

    Jill created a beautiful and personalized wedding ceremony for my husband and myself. She was willing to communicate via text, phone, and in person and wanted to get to know us as individuals/a couple before moving forward with the ceremony. Overall, we couldn't have found a better person to marry us and are so grateful to have had Jill be apart of our special day!
