Keith, thank you so much for making our ceremony memorable! I knew I wanted to work with you from the moment we first hopped on a intro call. You took the time to get to know my husband and I and really helped us customize our ceremony and gave us helpful tips like suggesting we include the wine box ceremony and family medallion. Our family was really impressed by the ceremony structure and had a great time meeting you. We'll be sure to keep in touch with you for our any future wedding vow renewal ceremony!
Keith officiated our wedding on August 29, 2015. From our first meeting with Keith up until our wedding day, Keith was exceptional. We found Keith after reading reviews about NY Marriages online and set up a meeting right away. Keith is very personable, funny, and sincere - I definitely felt like I already knew him for a long time, even though I just met him. These characteristics were very important because we wanted our ceremony to be genuine and heartwarming, especially since our ceremony was outside the church, much to the dismay of our families at first. Keith understood this right away, and we chose the package in which we could personalize the ceremony by filling out a questionnaire first. We provided Keith with a lot of information, but he tastefully coalesced the highlights of our answers into a beautiful, genuine, and personable ceremony. We received so many compliments from all of our guests (including our family!) about Keith and his execution of the ceremony. We were thrilled and truly enjoyed ourselves!
The day of our wedding was quite hot in the sun, and Keith felt the pulse of the our guests and made sure to not make the ceremony very long. Moreover, Keith arrived about 30-45 minutes before the ceremony, introducing himself to my family and bridal party by making us laugh and cutting the nervous tension, well, especially for me. Keith went over the logistics of the ceremony to everyone, and I was relieved. Within the week after we were married, Keith sent us a PDF of our marriage license for personal records. The official one from the state should be coming in a couple of weeks. NY Marriages is also reasonably priced and worth every penny.
Overall, I HIGHLY recommend Keith for your wedding ceremony as he is professional, personable, and down to earth. He truly made our wedding ceremony an unforgettable one, not just for my husband and I, but for all of our guests.
Keith was amazing! He officiated our wedding on August 9, 2015, and he made us feel so relaxed. My husband and I were not seeing each other before the ceremony, and it was difficult not to see one another! Keith knew this and acted not only as our go between with words of encouragement, but he also acted as one of our biggest cheerleaders! My husband was so nervous and he assured him that in the other room I was excited and so ready to see him! He also explained exactly how the ceremony would work before we walked down the aisle so we knew what to expect, which was awesome! We are of different faiths, and he blended them perfectly. Our families were so pleased, and everyone said the ceremony was beautiful. It focused on our love for one another, as well as our own personal story. Keith let us fully customize the entire experience, and he was with us throughout the entire journey! His support and guidance made all the difference!! During the ceremony, he encouraged us to talk, hold hands, and do whatever we needed to feel comfortable. He was funny, lighthearted and kind, and just so positive! We loved having him as our officiant.
Thank you, Keith!!

Keith was absolutely wonderful! He provided us comfort and support on the day of our wedding and made sure to capture everyone's attention. Even though it felt like it was 300 degrees outside during the ceremony, Keith kept his composure and performed our ceremony with grace. My husband and I couldn't be happier with him. We highly recommend him!!
We eloped from the rest of the world since my kids lived in Japan and one of his lived so far away from us. There was no point in inviting others when our kids couldn't participate. On the actual day of our wedding, I was feeling nervous that we had nobody but just one witness and fhat it was going to be just a signing of the marriage license. Keith made our ceremony a very poignant and special one, and I am extremely grateful.
Keith made our wedding ceremony absolutely perfect. It was like he was a part of our family. So many of our guests said they really liked our officiant because it wasn't just a "job" to him. He made us laugh, feel so comfortable and was really helpful with the entire process which we were (obviously) new to. With him sending us the PDF of our marriage certificate, we were able to take care of all of our legal documents right away rather than having to wait 6-8 weeks which made life a lot easier. We are so glad we chose him and would recommend him to everyone!
I was skeptical initially but after speaking to Keith on the phone and meeting him in person, he alleviated all my fears. Thank you for officiating my wedding. Your contribution helped make it memorable.
From our first conversation to the very end of the ceremony, Keith was a pleasure to work with. Even days after our wedding, guests were commenting about how wonderfully he spoke and how amazing he was throughout. I honestly could not have asked for a better officiant, and would highly recommend him for anyone in the future. He's sweet, easy-going, highly professional, and is guaranteed not to add to the stress of the day.
Keith from NY Marriages was excellent! My fiancé and I spend a lot of time looking for an officiant. As the ceremony is the most important part of the wedding, it was important we find the perfect person! We had been to several non-religious wedding ceremonies before, and they were pretty awful! The ceremony we chose was one from several samples he showed us, and we really loved all of the wording. We also had two readers who chose their selections from a huge collection Keith sent us. Keith was easy to communicate with, and he responded to emails and phone calls in a timely manner. He even helped edit our program just days before the wedding. On the day of, he was a great calming figure, making sure we knew exactly what we were doing, and worked with the other vendors and our bridal party to make sure everything ran smoothly.
Keith was AMAZING! He incorporated personal touches that were extremely heartfelt and some comical ones as well. Our ceremony was short, sweet and to the point just like we asked for. Our guest both laughed and cried. I highly recommend Keith. Thank you for an amazing job!
Keith at NY marriages was every bit as good as his reviews state. Choosing an officiant if you are not religious is a very hard task. The minute I talked to him on the phone it was clear he knew what he was doing. He worked in some of our personal stories and kept the ceremony light hearted and sentimental (which is hard considering he didn't know us). That was exactly what we were looking for. He is an excellent speaker and made my shy groom feel much more comfortable by taking a lot of the guess work out because he was so experienced. So many people commented on how great he was and asked us how long we have known him. I would highly reccommend Keith!
Keith from NY Marriages was awesome. He took the time to meet with us before the wedding, and really personalized our ceremony. He was funny, down to earth and laid back - we had a beautiful ceremony thanks to Keith.
A few months before my wedding, my original officiant left her job without notifying any of her clients. With the officiant being a crucial part of the wedding, of course I panicked. I found Keith on one of the bridal websites and saw how amazing his reviews were (WHICH ARE ALL TRUE) so I decided to give him a call. After frantically explaining my situation, Keith was very reassuring and professional. I actually thank god (now) for the fall through with the original officiant because I don't think we would have had the same experience that we had with Keith. I am still getting comments on how amazing he was at our ceremony and how it seemed like he knew us forever. I am recommending him to any of my friends/family that are getting married. He is absolutely incredible at what he does and makes your big day that much more special with his kind and loving words. Thank you Keith for everything you have done for Derek & me. We can't thank you enough!
Oh my goodness...thank you so much for such a beautiful wedding service on Saturday. It was so touching and so memorable.
Our guests as well and we couldn't have asked for a more meaningful and personal wedding ceremony. Thank you so much and thank you for being so grounded for me before the ceremony (I needed someone calm and collected and you were there for me). Thank you so much!
Keith did such an amazing job!! We are really happy with everything that he said during our ceremony. He helped guide us along the way and was very responsive to any email I sent. Everyone complimented all the things he said and he had the perfect blend of seriousness, funny and heartfelt. We are so happy that we chose him to be our officiant and definitely recommend him to anyone else!
Keith was a wonderful officiant for our wedding. He went out of his way to personalize our ceremony to make sure it was just the way we wanted it! Our family and friends all thought that Keith was a close friend who wanted to officiate our wedding! Thank you Keith! You are the best!
