    Unique Ceremony

    It was a pleasure working with Rev. Ari on our wedding ceremony. From the moment we first met her, we felt at ease and like we were talking to a friend of ours. Since my fiancée and I were from different religious backgrounds and in a non-traditional relationship, we were looking for an officiant who would respect our ceremony preferences. Rev. Ari fit this description perfectly. She provided us with lots of good information and ideas to incorporate into our wedding ceremony and allowed us to select language that was truly unique and meaningful to us. On our wedding day, she arrived early, coordinated last-minute details with our string quartet, and made sure family members were in their appropriate places. She even noticed that we had forgotten our bouquets in the main hall and made sure we were 100% ready to go in time for our entrance. She did a great job leading the ceremony itself, and we definitely recommend her services. Thank you, R. Ari!

    Beautiful, personalized and unique!

    Rev. Khrymsun was so great to work with! She's extremely professional and made everything very easy for us. The ceremony itself was nothing but perfect. It was our favorite part of the wedding and everyone else's too. There was not a dry eye in the room! I loved that we were able to incorporate spirituality and handfasting into our ceremony. I will be recommending her to everyone!
