Laura made our Zoom wedding ceremony easy breezy!
Laura was available to answer any questions we had prior to our Zoom ceremony and helped ease our worries about having a virtually-officiated ceremony. She had a great presence on the Zoom call with our family joining us from overseas, and the ceremony was just perfect under her guidance!Sent on 06/03/2020

Advisor and Cantor in One
Despite having met only virtually and a year ago, it still feels like we have known Cantor Stein our whole lives. That is the easiest way to describe how personal of an approach Cantor Stein takes. She perfectly balanced professionalism, intimacy and spiritualism to make a uniquely special experience. She then went above and beyond, acting as our advisor and friend as the Pandemic complicated everything. She made our small Pandemic wedding as perfect as it could have been and will undoubtedly make our future party just as special :)Sent on 08/16/2020
