Wonderful NYC Wedding Officiant
Cantor Stein was an incredible partner throughout our interfaith ceremony planning process. She listened to our love story and ceremony wishes and then expertly crafted a beautiful narrative to share with our friends and family at the wedding. On the day of our event, she delivered a personalized, poignant ceremony that was one of the highlights of our day. Guests commented on our ceremony throughout the night and beyond to let us know how meaningful and memorable it was. Thank you so much to Cantor Stein for her collaboration and amazing work! We are thrilled to recommend her as an officiant.Sent on 12/08/2019

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
