We are SO happy that we chose Cantor Stein as our wedding officiant!

From our first conversation we felt very comfortable with her. We are so glad we signed up for the full three sessions (getting to know us, counseling, and planning). Throughout the sessions and the email conversations, she really helped us focus on our union, rather than the wedding planning which can feel all-consuming at times. We gained new insights in our relationship, she was an extremely supportive resource to help us navigate the Jewish traditions, and she was an incredible officiant! As so many other reviewers name - many, many of our guests (from the very religious to the non-religious) let us know that our ceremony felt super personal, that she clearly knew us well, and that Cantor Stein made the event really meaningful. She also has a phenomenally lovely singing voice. She made our wedding ceremony truly special, and we wouldn’t change a single thing!

We love Cantor Stein!

Cantor Stein is an amazing officiant and was the perfect fit for our interfaith ceremony. She took the time to get to know the both of us well, and made sure to incorporate the aspects of both of our cultures (Jewish/Chinese) that we wanted present in our ceremony. She is incredibly kind and organized, and made our marriage process so warm. During our wedding reception, the majority of our guests stopped us to tell us how beautiful our ceremony was (and how amazing Cantor Stein is). We look forward to including her in our future life events!

Truly a wonderful Cantor!

If I could leave 100 stars I would. Cantor Stein is absolutely incredible. My husband and I knew we wanted someone to marry us that was warm, friendly, not too serious and brought a positive light to the ceremony. Cantor Stein did that and more. From the moment we met her and every time we left a session, my husband and I turned to each other and beamed at how wonderful she is. Getting to know Cantor Stein, and having her get to know us was a treat. She not only helped us on this journey to get married with all the details of planning the ceremony, but helped us grow as a couple as well. She brought the biggest smiles, laughs, and such joy to our wedding ceremony. It's been 2 weeks since our wedding and everyone cannot stop saying how much they enjoyed our ceremony. We can't wait to work with Cantor Stein again. We are so grateful to have found a wonderful person to marry us, and also a lifelong friend
