Your special day...
In America's greatest city!

Congratulations on your Engagement and your decision to marry in one of the most romantic cities in the world. A destination wedding in New York—be it winter, spring, summer, or fall—can offer a couple the most spectacular landmarks and locations, where vows of wedding, commitment or marriage renewal can be made.
<p><span  class=As a wedding officiant and celebrant in New York City, I have worked with many couples, traveling from the U.S. and abroad, who for reasons of convenience, amenities, or sheer drama choose to hold their weddings in the Big Apple.

I am a professionally trained wedding officiant, specializing in personalized ceremonies that “tell the story,” of happy couples. I believe that a well-crafted and perfectly delivered wedding ceremony is a crucial part of any larger marriage celebration, so I spend a great deal of time and energy developing your perfect ceremony.

In my experience, preparing ceremonies for weddings, civil unions, or vow renewals is only one part of the services needed by out-of-town couples and their families. So my work as a celebrant is complemented with basic wedding planning assistance.

Having lived in New York City for more than a decade and New Jersey and Connecticut for another 10 years, I have a deep appreciation of the ins-and-outs of event planning in this most exciting part of America. So I stand ready to help with all of the major aspects of your Destination Wedding including selecting a venue, identifying vendors such as photographers, musicians and florists, helping with travel, hotel and tourist selections, assisting with securing the wedding license and much more. While some who offer these services have a vested interest in convincing couples to choose their vendors, my role is to locate the best options for all your wedding needs.

So let’s begin this adventure together. I promise, it will be hassle-free, wonderfully fun, and an experience that you will never forget and will always treasure!

Happy Couples

Dear Sarah, Although we’ve already spoken through email, we wanted to send you a card to say ‘Thank You’ for making our wedding day so special. The ceremony was everything we wanted–and more! Everyone agreed that it was a fantastic day. People commented on how personal it was and I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house. We appreciated your help in finding the location in Central Park (and the back up location, too!). We appreciate your help with everything.
