Services

These days, all couples are concerned about preparing and staying within a reasonable budget. In order to accommodate couples looking for different types of ceremonies, I offer several “packages,” with a range of services and price points. After learning more about your event and expectations, I will provide you with a price quote for my services. My rates are competitive with other New York City Officiants and reflect the care with which I prepare and lead ceremonies. I will happily officiate your event in New York City, New York State, Connecticut, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and other locations, upon request.

Full Service Civil Union, Wedding, or Commitment Ceremony

Your ceremony deserves all the time and attention devoted to every other major part of the wedding day. With my full-service package, I will develop, with your consultation and approval, a complete ceremony including the narrative of your love story, vows, and any other ceremonial elements you wish to add. I will happily provide you with readings and resource materials, including music selections, drawing from my broad ceremony repertoire. I will offer a full draft for your comments, edits, and feedback, and I will continue to polish the ceremony until it meets with your complete satisfaction. I am prepared to meet and work with your event planners, caterers, musicians, and others to discuss all aspects of the event. I will conduct a wedding rehearsal at your convenience, and I will arrive early to your ceremony and stay late, if need be. After the event, you will receive a “keepsake” version of your ceremony. My fee for a full service civil union range from $500 to $900.

I do, I do

A simple ceremony, with some customizing, can be crafted and delivered for impromptu civil unions or simple affairs. Why have your ceremony at City Hall when we can create a simple, but memorable, civil union ceremony for you and your beloved? Fees for these simple, but lovely and customized ceremonies, are between $350 and $500.

Destination Events

Many couples choose New York as the location for their “destination wedding.” I am pleased to work with couples from all corners of the world to create their ideal wedding experience, be it highly choreographed or short and sweet. In addition, I am delighted to provide assistance with “wedding planning” tasks such as locating venues, selecting and securing music, and arranging for flowers and other decorations. I am equally prepared to help you negotiate the sometimes stressful process of obtaining a marriage license in New York City or elsewhere.

I want to lead the way in creating a ceremony that reflects you, your love, and all the things that you hold most dear in the world.

Vow Renewal

Whether you are celebrating your five-year anniversary or your fiftieth, vow renewals offer an unforgettable way to share your love with friends and family. Maybe you eloped and never had the civil union of your dreams—we can make that dream come true with an exquisite vow renewal ceremony.

Ceremony Consulting

If you have an officiant secured for your civil union or you live well beyond New York, I am excited to offer a consultancy service that will provide advice and assistance in creating a spectacular ceremony conducted in any location. Consider me a concierge for all of your ceremony questions and needs. These consulting arrangements can be established in a way that works for you. I am available to write your personal love story; prepare vows; present choices about ceremony rituals and options; assist in selecting readings, music, and decorations; and develop wedding programs. I will work collaboratively with your officiant, musicians, wedding planners and others to design this key aspect of your wedding day. Our partnership will include the same attention to detail and personal service that I extend to couples for whom I perform the wedding or commitment ceremony.
