It is a privilege to share this joyous occasion with you! I am a wedding officiant, certified to perform weddings in the state of New Jersey. I provide interfaith and non-denominational wedding officiant services and am honored to work with couples of all faiths, traditions and lifestyles.
I have a selection of ceremony packages to choose from. All packages can apply to Weddings or Vow Renewals. They range in length and price, so there is something for everyone.
I have put together some beautiful pre-written ceremonies for you to choose from. You may use one of these, or you may select from a collection of Ceremony Elements that I have gathered. This menu allows you to create your own ceremony based on your own preferences. If you would like, I will work with you to create a more personalized and unique ceremony.
For those looking to avoid the stress and expense of a large wedding, I have designed a Seaside Ceremony. This is a simple yet beautiful ceremony package that takes the stress and expense out of a big wedding.

Andrea was awesome to work with for our wedding. We had such a short time frame to work with and she worked with us and planned it all within a month time frame and she made sure every little detail was complete and perfect. She always followed up with us in a very timely matter and works with you to customize your ceremony to be exactly how you want it to be. We will be using her to renew our vows in a year! Would definitely recommend her!

A perfect ceremony
Andrea was so easy to talk to on the phone and sent us an information packet to help us plan our ceremony exactly the way we wanted it to be. At our venue, there was a power outage one hour before the ceremony and Andrea helped us stay calm and we planned to continue by candlelight, but the lights came back on just in time. She is a lovely person and her way of speaking and conducting the ceremony puts real meaning into the words we chose. I would definitely recommend Andrea to anyone planning their wedding.

We chose Andrea for our 11.2.18 wedding and we were extremelly pleased ! She was friendly, kind , professional and very easy to work with . Her suggestions for the ceremony and readings was exactly what we needed. We had a scheduled phone walkthrough and she also arrived early to the ceremony to go over last minute details . Very very pleased 😁
For This Joyous Occassion is simply amazing. Her services are touching, personal and full of JOY!
I can not say enough great things about Andrea. My staff and I are always delighted when a new couple comes in to book and they let us know that she is their officiant of choice. She is an absolute delight to be around and we wish her nothing but continued success!
