My mission is to honor and respect all beliefs and traditions – secular, spiritual, interfaith and religious. Everyone can feel safe with me.  I perform custom-tailored ceremonies from the heart because I know what it feels like to be judged or rejected for your beliefs or sexual orientation. I firmly believe that ceremonies that reflect the principal authenticity enhance our world. 

Over the years many people have asked me why I left the practice of law to create ceremonies and celebrate people's transitions with authenticity and professionalism outside of traditional religion. Please read the "About Us" section of my website to learn more about me, and my philosophy!

Inquire about  other  ceremonies...


  • ​Do you believe your ceremony is the most important aspect of your wedding day? 

  • Do you wish your friends and family could feel  your authentic joy as you marry the love of your life? 

  • ​Would you like your ceremony to feel like it was lovingly crafted by a dear friend who happens to be a ceremony expert? 

You are not sure how to get the ceremony you truly desire. ​You are thrilled to be formally launching your lives together but you are a unique couple and a traditional wedding ceremony just won't do. Maybe you are interfaith (Jewish-Christian, Muslim-Jewish, Agnostic-Christian, etc.), spiritual but not religious or strictly secular. Whatever your situation, you know you want more than a City Hall ceremony. 

There is a solution! If you find an officiant who approaches your ceremony the right way, your wedding ceremony does not have to be stressful. In fact, it should be the highlight of your special day. When else will the words that are said create a totally new family? A wedding ceremony is a singular event in our lives. It is one of the few occasions where we have the chance to be together and notice how wonderful it is to be alive. This is why I love to craft and deliver award-winning, meaningful, individually crafted wedding ceremonies that reflect the couple's truest desires. No cookie-cutter ceremonies! 

Having performed more than 700 ceremonies over the last 11 years, I am a ceremony expert who honors and respects all loving belief systems and traditions -- spiritual secular and religious. And, I use my trained voice acting skills to create a vibrant ceremony experience for all to hear and appreciate. Most importantly, couples have "word for word" approval of the entire text of their ceremony and the couple directs my delivery of the script! 

It is my privilege to create meaningful, personalized, wedding ceremonies that honors each couple, rather than having a one-size fits all policy. 

By the way, as a former staff attorney for Lambda Legal and with same-sex marriages being legal in the State of New York, I love to perform same sex marriages!
