Bharat Jani was professional, thorough, punctual, and made the ceremony fun and exciting. He was able to explain each step of the ceremony without having its significance lost in translation. Highly reliable; I would not have had any other priest officiate our joyous occasion. A tremendous success!
Words cannot express what a wonderful job Mr. Jani did in officiating our interfaith wedding. My husband was raised Catholic to parents from Ireland and Poland, and I was raised Hindu to Telugu parents.We had a very particular vision for our wedding, and one thing that was crucial to us was making sure that our guests and we knew what was happening during our ceremony (after attending many pujas and wedding ceremonies through my life, I can attest this is not always the case!) To be truthful, I've learned so much about my own religion through working with Mr. Jani, and found the ceremony to be beautiful and meaningful. We knew the moment we met Mr. Jani that he was perfect for this all-important task and hired him on the spot. He rose to the task at hand beautifully. He wanted to meet or talk to our parents and always made sure from the get-go to take everyone's thoughts and considerations into account. I had many concerns through the process wanting to please everyone and make the ceremony meaningful for all involved while still respecting my husband's and his family's desires/customs. Bharat Uncle was able to navigate through all of that (without me even needing to say anything), and he talked extensively with my own parents to help express my husband's and my desires and to make sure that what they wanted was reflected in a way that worked for us. Also, he had in the past officiated Telugu as well as Irish and Polish weddings and knew all of the traditions and was open to all. A rarity! When it got close to the wedding date, he helped draft programs, inform us on marriage licenses, buy needed items etc. He filled many of the more stressful parts of wedding planning and the day itself with love and laughter, all the while acting as an utmost professional. I have had many compliments since our wedding on how beautifully Mr. Jani officiated. I truly believe he can do any wedding with grace, poise, skill and humor and respects all cultures and religions.
Mr. Jani co-officiated my interfaith wedding ceremony with a Jewish rabbi. He was very sensitive throughout the planning process and made an effort to get to know me, my fiancé and my family as well as he could to ensure the ceremony met our needs. He collaborated with us on all the details and both our wedding guests, and my family members who had attended a smaller puja at our house, were raving about what an outstanding job he did working with our other officiant to blend our faiths and cultures. I absolutely recommend him for any bride or grooming planning a Hindu or interfaith wedding.
We had a great time with Mr. Bharatkumar Jani, fantastic officiant. The wedding was traditional but he made it comfortable and enjoyable for all the non-hindu's that attended the wedding. He spoke in Sanskrit for the chants and hymns but translated everything into English as well which was much appreciative. Very accommodating. I would highly recommend having him as your officiant for any type of wedding you are looking for.
Very good job. Easy to work with.
We were blessed to have Bharatkumar Jani officiate at our daughter's wedding. He was spiritual, patient, professional, and attentive to all parties involved. He answered questions and talked us through what would occur. During the ceremony, he articulately explained the meaning of each aspect. He made sure to include not just the wedding party, but all the guests. We highly recommend him with no reservations.
Bharatkumar Jani officiated our daughter's wedding. We couldn't be happier with his professionalism, attention to detail and guidance in planning for the big day. He met with both the bride, groom and both sets of parents to make sure all our questions and concerns were addressed.
On the day of the wedding, he was attentive not only to the bride and groom, the parents but also all the guests to make sure they understood the meaning of each aspect of the ceremony.
I will definitely be calling upon his services in the future.
Bharatkumar Jani exceeded our expectations and delivered a beautiful, memorable, and loving Wedding Ceremony. He fulfilled our requests and fluently conducted the ceremony in English and Gujarati with a splash of humor. His professionalism and warm heart was clearly seen not only by us but by family members as well. Everyone could not stop talking about how articulate and poised he was. He truly set the atmosphere for the ceremony just right. Thank you so much Bharatkumar for being apart of our big day, we were truly blessed.
For my husband and myself it was critical to have a meaningful marriage/ceremony and since both of us don't know Sanskrit (and most of our guest) it was important that the ceremony was translated in English for us. Bharat Uncle totally understood our needs and hosted our ceremony going above and beyond our expectations.
He is extremely cooperative and responsive as well. We printed our program guide 3 days before the big day and he proof read the content, provided samples and gave quality suggestions.
Even our event planner was extremely happy to work with him as he is adapting, respectful and most importantly he is highly knowledgeable about the culture and knows the importance of auspicious time etc
For every Indian bride and groom looking for a priest who can truly elevate the wedding experience please partner with Bharatkumar Jani. He is the best in the east coast and in my eyes the best in US :-)
I am a wedding planner, and this priest was fabulous to work with. He answered all of the couples questions pre-wedding, and explained the process to them. He showed up on time, and was very clear and concise during the wedding ceremony. He was very organized and engaging. I highly recommend him.
Bharat Uncle is fantastic. Our wedding ceremony was intimate, interesting and fun. Everyone was paying attention and attendees from all faiths and backgrounds found the ceremony as moving and meaningful as we did.
Mr. Jani is an outgoing and cheerful man who went out of his way to be sure that the guests at my daughter's wedding understood the Hindu traditions and rituals. We were happy to have him as part of the ceremony and were very pleased with his services.
Bharat Jani officiated the Hindu portion of our combined Hindu-Christian wedding. He met with my parents, wife (fiancee at the time), and me several months before the wedding day to thoroughly explain all of the steps of the ceremony. He was extremely flexible with adjusting portions of the ceremony so that we could fit both the Hindu and Christian ceremonies in the allotted time. He made himself available by phone and email from the first day we talked up to the wedding day for any and all questions. He traveled a long way to officiate our ceremony and worked very well with the other officiant. On the day of the wedding, he arrived early and made sure everything was properly set up for the ceremony, so that we didn't have to worry about a thing. He explained every part of the ceremony in English so that all of our guests could follow along. Our family and friends keep mentioning what a great job he did and how unique and enjoyable the ceremony was. We fully recommend him to everyone!
He has a very sound knowledge of subject and very good presentation , however it would help more if some of the housekeeping details are provided ahead and not ask to have money envelopes ready all the times!
Bharat Jani had been so helpful since the wedding preparation began. He was very responsive , attentive to detail and professional. My wedding ceremony was a mix of Telugu and Gujrati traditions. He came to my home and spent time with our families discussing the ceremony and the process . Bharat Jani was able to beautifully incorporate both traditions fully and both families were very pleased . His eloquent style of speech and mannerism attracts the guests' attention and makes them feel like they are participating as well. He spoke in English and Sanskrit for the ceremony . The ceremony ran smoothly with no delays, all thanks to Bharat Jani. We received so many compliments and praises from our Indian and non-Indian guests. He truly fulfilled beyond our expectations as a priest/officiant for our wedding . I would highly recommend Bharat Jani. He is truly # 1 in the market .

The ceremony was very personal. Bharat Jani took the time to answer all questions related to the wedding ceremony in detail. He even offered to discuss more details after the ceremony. I would highly recommend having him for this type of event.
