New York Marriage Officiant
These days, all brides and grooms are concerned about preparing and staying within a reasonable wedding 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, Long Island, Connecticut, and New Jersey, and other locations, upon request.
Full Service Wedding, Civil Union, 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 marriage officiant 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 wedding 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 wedding range from $500 to $900 I provide marriage officiant services in New York and the surrounding areas.
I Do, I Do
A simple ceremony, with some customizing, can be crafted and delivered for impromptu weddings or simple affairs. Why have your wedding at City Hall when we can create a simple, but memorable, wedding ceremony for you and your beloved?
Many couples choose New York as the location for their “destination wedding.” I am pleased to work with brides and grooms 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.
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 wedding of your dreams—we can make that dream come true with an exquisite vow renewal ceremony.
If you have an officiant secured for your wedding or live well beyond New York, I am excited to offer a consultancy service that will provide advice and assistance in creating a spectacular wedding 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.
