Within our Hearts we find Common Ground

Thank you so much for finding me!  You are here because you have arrived at one of the most important moments and decisions of your lives!! I am here because it would be a privilege and honor to be a part of your special day.  

 

My passion is to guide you toward creating a ceremony that that will be cherished and remembered for years to come. Whether you choose to have a large gathering or a small intimate setting, your ceremony sets the tone for the rest of the day. You deserve to share in something that truly celebrates you as a couple. No two weddings are alike because no two couples are alike.  

 

I will lovingly guide you through this process by getting to know you and learning more about your journey up to this point. I am happy to suggest any readings, poems or songs (my favorite) to personalize the ceremony. I will also suggest ways to include your families and guests as they witness one of the most important moments of your lives.  

 

I am committed to creating a service that reflects you, your beliefs and traditions in the most heartfelt way.

NYC Wedding Officiant, Singer & Musician

I was born and raised in NYC and always had an interest in the performing arts.  I studied musical theater and majored in Classical Voice at Oberlin Conservatory of Music. I originally started out working in the wedding business as a professional singer and pianist over 17 years ago.  

 

My spiritual journey eventually led me to enroll at The New Seminary of Interfaith Studies in NYC where I was ordained as an Interfaith Minister in 2008. When a friend asked me to officiate her wedding in 2010, I knew I had found my calling and have been happily marrying couples ever since.

 

 

I have a very personal connection to the LGBT community. Throughout my childhood, most of my mother’s friends were male couples and each of them played such an integral role in my upbringing.  My gay “Uncles” attended all of my recitals, shows and graduations.  Unfortunately, they never had the choice to legally marry or witness this incredible moment in history, so each time I have the privilege to marry a couple, I always feel like I am honoring them too.

Services

Because of my musical background, I also offer many packages that include live music (Harp, Violin, Guitar, etc.).  I have also sung to my couples as they walk down the aisle and also after the pronouncement.   

 

I am licensed in NY, NJ, CT and will travel throughout the Tri-State area to perform weddings, commitment ceremonies, vow renewals, baby blessings and any other life passage to be celebrated. I am also a certified PREPARE/ENRICH counselor which enables me to offer couples pre-marital coaching and support as needed.  Please contact me for more information.

 

I love what I do and I hope that you will invite me to cross this wonderful threshold with you.  Let’s Celebrate!!
