Responsive, Flexible and Personal
Cantor Stein was professional and made us feel comfortable from start to finish. She came to our apartment to get to know as and walked us through everything we needed to know. We had an interfaith ceremony and she was flexible in working with out Monsignor to create the perfect ceremony that fit us as a couple while keeping with tradition. We were so happy to have her as part of our day.Sent on 10/10/2019

We cannot recommend Cantor Laura Stein enough! She performed the most beautiful and meaningful ceremony. All of our guests are still talking about it! From only a few conversations, Laura understood us as a couple and brought that to life on the day. She worked with us to create a ceremony that was truly personal and spiritual. Her voice is amazing! Cantor Stein was an integral part of our day and we are so glad she was the one to marry us.Sent on 10/12/2019

Warm, charming, and deeply moving
Cantor Laura Stein brought so much to our wedding day. An interfaith ceremony in a cathedral on a Saturday is a tall order, but she, along with our priest, delivered a beautiful service. Her voice, grace, and faith touched us, and all of our guests. Our trust in her was rewarded by her blessing over our new life together, and we are so grateful and thankful we found her!Sent on 10/15/2019
