    Can't say enough good things!!!!

    We cannot say enough good things about Shira! Our Rabbi was unable to officiate our wedding unfortunately, but referred us to Shira. Admittedly, we were a bit nervous at first around the idea of having someone we didn't know officiate our wedding...you know, the most important day of our lives so far. But as soon as we walked into East End to meet with Shira, all our worries melted away.

    Shira is warm, kind and approachable. She set a number of meetings with us, taking the time to get to know us and to make sure we were spiritually, emotionally, and on a practical level, prepared to enter this new chapter in our lives as husband and wife. She doesn't just check the boxes of things she needs to do, she is fully invested in each couple she works with. She also made sure that our ceremony was totally reflective of us, and gave us great advice that helped us to make sure we were as present as possible at our wedding, enjoying each other, and not getting lost in the logistics and hosting.


    Fast forward to our wedding. Our ceremony was everything we could have wanted. I could cry just thinking about it! It was intimate and special. Shira wasn't talking at us, she was talking to us -- and she made sure to explain everything that was happening so that our guests could feel intimately part of it. Oh and her voice - oh my goodness, she has the voice of an angel!!! Another perk of having a cantor officiate your wedding :)

    Shira was -- dare I say it -- heaven sent to us! We highly recommend working with her if you need an officiant!

    Amazing experience!

    Shira was phenomenal from beginning to end. She is warm, kind, and a pleasure to work with. She created such a warm and personalized ceremony and we could not be more grateful. The ceremony was our favorite part of the entire night. Shira is also incredibly organized and responsive and takes all of the stress out of the wedding planning process. My husband and I had such a great time getting to know her and couldn't be happier with our decision to have her marry us.
