A really wonderful interfaith ceremony!
Cantor Stein led our wedding ceremony with my husband's childhood Reverend. It was really important to his family that we had an interfaith wedding, and Cantor Stein was amenable to everything we requested. She made it clear throughout the process that our comfort and satisfaction with the service was her priority and that meant a lot to us, since we wanted to make sure that the service fully represented both of our traditions. My husband and I were really glad that everything was so seamless. Thank you, Cantor Stein, for a really meaningful day!Sent on 01/13/2019

So happy with everything!
We were really happy with Laura! Her voice is really beautiful and she's nice and personable. She's especially easy to get a hold of, which was useful in the weeks leading up to the wedding when my wife and I had questions about the ketubah language and some scheduling logistics. Thanks again Laura!
