    Cantor Erik was absolutely fantastic - working with him was by far one of the best decisions we made for our wedding (besides choosing each other to marry, of course). I had dozens of guests complement me afterwards about our officiant - Jews and non-Jews, young and old, EVERYONE seemed to love him, everyone felt included and touched by our ceremony. And most of all, my husband and I couldn't have asked for a better person to usher us into our marriage.

    From our very first meeting with him, Cantor Erik put us at ease and helped us think about how to build the foundation for a healthy marriage. He had such a great balance of humor and seriousness, helping us recognize the gravity of the wedding but also putting us at ease and helping us keep perspective amidst all the craziness of wedding planning. He worked with us to craft the ceremony that would be most meaningful for us, explaining the history behind various traditions and rituals and helping us determine what we did and didn't want to include. He was always responsive throughout the months leading up to the wedding when we had questions about our ketubah, program, etc. We looked forward to all our pre-wedding meetings with him, and grew as a couple in the process.

    The wedding day itself - WOW. We laughed. We cried. We couldn't have been happier. Cantor Erik created a very special atmosphere for the ketubah signing, which created such a happy and peaceful tone for the whole wedding. For the ceremony, he started off with a very personalized message about our relationship - he got to the heart of who we were and why we worked so well together. He explained each of the traditions as he did them in a way that made everyone feel included. It was a truly special, uplifting, and unique ceremony.

    All in all, we couldn't recommend Cantor Erik more highly!

    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!!
