Having this wonderful man perform our wedding ceremony was truly one of the best parts of the day!

Having this wonderful man perform our wedding ceremony was truly one of the best parts of the day! I cannot possibly say enough good things about him. He paid attention to each of us, and captured details about our relationship that were completely unexpected yet felt like such a blessing. His warmth and humor and kindness are beyond measure. We never even considered having anyone else marry us, And we chose the date based on his schedule. He was literally the first wedding choice after I choose the person I wanted to marry.

Rabbi for Wedding Day!

Rabbi Astrachan was an incredible asset to our wedding day. Throughout the process, Rabbi was responsive to all of our questions and extremely warm. During the ceremony, the Rabbi was engaging, injected humor, and wowed our wedding guests with his words. After the wedding, all of my friends want him to be their officiant at their future weddings! Overall, he surpassed our expectations and we would highly recommended anyone to hire him as their officiant.

Rabbi Astrachan is the BEST!

Rabbi Jeffery Astrachan with Exchanging Rings is truly the most exceptional officiant a couple could ever ask for for their wedding! He helped facilitate the most unique, personalized wedding for my husband (Jewish) and myself (Catholic). We met with him several times in the months before the wedding and he placed careful attention to get to know us as individuals and a couple. He encouraged us to do wedding "homework", which was a series of fun questions that we answered independently and as a couple. He then used the answers in the wedding to ensure the ceremony was personalized to us. We had countless guests tell us it was the most unique ceremony they ever witnessed! Rabbi Astrachan traveled to Cincinnati, OH from Florida for our wedding and we will eagerly recommend his officiant services to any couple regardless of your religion, sexuality, race, culture, location, etc. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!
