    What a dream come true!

    Working with Shira was the best experience ever. Before getting engaged we always thought that our officiant would show up on the day of our wedding, perform the service, and that’s it. We were so happy Shira taught us otherwise. She took the time to connect with my (now) husband and I, facilitates important pre-marital conversations, and provided us with the best guidance ever. Leading up to the big day we knew we were going to be married by someone who genuinely cared about us and understood us and the values we held close to our hearts. To this day we continue to get comments from our wedding guests about how beautiful the ceremony was. Shira was thoughtful, personal, and radiant (not to mentioned HER VOICE IS SPECTACULAR). Every single moment from wedding planning, through the wedding day, and after, Shira really took the time to connect with us and make sure our time of becoming Mr. and Mrs. was uniquely ours. We couldn’t have asked for a better officiant, cantor, and friend during the best time of our lives!

    Beautiful Ceremony

    Shira made our wedding day very special. She went above and beyond to make sure our interfaith wedding was perfect. Everybody felt included. Every word she said was meaningful for us, as if she knew us for a long time. She even took the time to work with our translator to have our wedding in Hebrew, English and Spanish. The ceremony was flawless and her singing gave a special touch. There wouldn’t have been a better wedding officiant for us. We highly recommend her. Marly and Aaron
