1) You are getting a professional – someone who has extensive knowledge and experience in performing a variety of types of weddings. I have performed Jewish weddings, Interfaith weddings (with and without other clergy), Multi-cultural weddings, LGBTQ+ and Same-Sex weddings, Non-denominational weddings, non-religious weddings, handfasting ceremonies, commitment ceremonies and renewal of vows ceremonies. I am also someone who has studied to receive clergy ordination to be able to perform weddings legally.2) I am an expert in listening to your wishes and crafting a unique, personal and meaningful wedding ceremony just for you. I work hard to make sure that everyone attending the wedding feels welcomed and comfortable, always explaining traditions and rituals used within the ceremony. 3) You are not just paying for that 20-30 minute ceremony. Much more time and effort goes into creating your ceremony. From the moment you hire me, I am available to you via phone, email, or text to answer questions and discuss your ceremony. It takes me between 6-12 hours of time to complete a personal ceremony for a couple. I spend time meeting with you, reading your questionnaires that I send out to get to know you better, crafting and editing your ceremony until I have a finished product.
