About Cantor Erik Contzius

Meaningful & personal wedding ceremonies

I take time to get to know and understand the couples I work with. That way, I'm able to give your relationship and your love a voice to those with whom you intend to share this special moment in your lives. As a liberal Jewish ordained Cantor, I conduct a Jewish influenced wedding ceremony and perform pre-marital counseling. I work with interfaith and same-sex couples. I like to incorporate the culture from both sides of your family and make sure that all of your family and guests feel comfortable and included. Should we speak or sing any Hebrew, it will always be translated. Your wedding ceremony will feel personal and unique. Your wedding is not about the band, the florist, the photographer, or even the officiant. It's about you.

Erik is the best in the business! We absolutely loved how he did our ceremony, we’ve been married 2 weeks and people are still telling us how great he was. They loved how he translated the Hebrew part of the ceremony to English for people who aren’t jewish to understand! We love you Erik thank you for going above and beyond!!

Cantor Contzius was fantastic. We called him to discuss our wedding and he was incredibly helpful and kind. He is very knowledgeable and he is incredibly accommodating. We were operating on a tight schedule and called him at the last minute. He was unfazed and was willing to work around our schedule. The cantor offers pre-wedding counseling to help the couple think through some of the decisions they will face once married and he offers great advice over the phone! I would highly recommend you hire Cantor Contzius!
