My Husband and I knew we wanted to have a special ceremony that made sense for us. We are not religious but it was important to include our story, our families and our values. We knew that hiring a celebrant would make the most sense for us b/c they know how to craft a ceremony and work to put the personal touches that we wanted. Picking Jessie was incredibly easy. She was flexible when planning to meet with us and gave us a warm feeling immediately. Her personality was a major win b/c she would be talking for most of the ceremony and would set the tone. She had great communication during the whole process and made sure we were on track with our wedding homework and also getting the marriage license in time for the ceremony. Ultimately we were so very pleased with her work. She also helped us pick out three readings, incorporating one into her own part of the ceremony. We received a ton of compliments during the reception on how unique and personal our ceremony felt. Everyone loved it. I would recommend Jessie to anyone who wants a truly unique and personal touch to their ceremony.

Your wedding ceremony should reflect who you are - your love & your relationship. Let's work together to make your wedding ceremony into a truly special day that you will never forget!

I will create a ceremony that embodies the love and passion of your relationship, while still capturing the individuality and personalities of both parties. I take elements and rituals from your backgrounds and weave them into your love story to create a unique ceremony just for your wedding.

Of course, this is your wedding, and you have the ultimate control. I will create this unique ceremony based on the parameters you give me. All traditions and backgrounds are accepted and honored. The possibilities for the ceremony are nearly endless! I can also suggest rituals or ceremonies to include if you are looking for ideas, as well as help you with your vows, and readings. I act as your partner and guide, offering my expertise, experience, and guidance to create a truly original and very special wedding ceremony.

The ceremony will be original, touching, and beautiful, and one that you, as well as your family and friends, will remember forever.

I am a Life-Cycle Celebrant® and non-denominational minister, and can legally solemnize marriages and civil unions in New Jersey, and marriages in New York City and New York State. 

I do not practice or preach any specific religion or spiritual beliefs, and the ceremony's religious and spiritual content (or lack there-of) is very much guided through your input.  We can discuss options for what you would like to include.

The central theme of the ceremony will be your love story; the original tale of what events have brought you both to where you are today. Indeed, your wedding is just the beginning of this story, and I would be honored to help guide you into this next chapter.

I also offer elopements / quick weddings on short notice and ceremony writing services (for destination weddings, or if you are planning on writing your own ceremony and need a little help!).
