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.

Our ceremony is forever memorable because of Andrea. The little book of our ceremony was such a sweet and thoughtful gift for us to always look back and re read . I was the lucky one to have found her on a whim on Instagram . I would do it all over again if I could and I would without a doubt hire Andrea again. People are still talking about our ceremony and how wonderful and heartfelt it was! She is the best and I can't thank her enough !

I was so nervous about having a simple but beautiful beach wedding. Andrea worked with us to make a memorable ceremony that included our children. Sarah did an amazing job performing our ceremony and was able to calm my nerves before the ceremony (thank you Sarah). I cannot thank you both enough for making our special day even more special!

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!

Andrea and I worked together at a beautiful seaside July 4th wedding, and I was impressed with her professionalism and warm spirit. Anyone who hires Andrea to officiate their ceremony will not be disappointed!
