Each time we cross a threshold in life, and mark it with a ceremony, we have an opportunity to transform ourselves, our community and our world. It is my great pleasure to help you create a personal, unique and heartfelt ceremony for your wedding, recommitment or any rite of passage.

“When we were planning our wedding, Reverend Diane Epstein was everything we needed: inspirational, warm, patient. Someone sensitive to religious differences who could help us put together a wonderful, spiritual ceremony. She met with us again and again to make sure everything was just right. Reverend Diane is simply the best. We would highly recommend her to anyone.”

Laughter and Levity with Rev. Diane
It's one thing to find "the one", it's quite another to find "the one" to officiate your wedding. When we first met with Rev. Diane, her consultative, calm approach immediately put us at ease. She was instrumental in crafting and delivering a ceremony that struck the right balance of sincerity and joy--a nod to tradition with a modern touch. Her flexibility and grace in working with us through some unexpected challenges and changes leading up to the wedding showed her heartfelt dedication to her work and her clients.Sent on 08/18/2019
What resulted was a unique and individualized ceremony that demonstrated our approach to life and set a course for a successful union. Our guests repeatedly shared that our ceremony was refreshing and delightful. Thank you, Rev. Diane, for bringing levity and laughter to our wedding!
Hudson Valley Interfaith Minister's reply:Katie and JM—It was my pleasure to be "the one" to officiate for you. It was a magnificent day in every way. Peace and blessings to you always!

A joy to work with
Working with Reverend Diane for our wedding was such a relaxing and joyful experience. She was totally focused on our needs and kept an air of calmness over the entire process. Her responsiveness to our questions was always quick, and she often provided several potential scenarios for us to work with.Sent on 06/23/2019
When it came time for the ceremony, Reverend Diane made sure we were always at ease. She incorporated all of our ideas for rituals, and presented it all with all the greatest regard for our ceremony.
After the ceremony, we were told by many of our guests (one being a retired deacon) that Reverend Diane’s ceremony was one of the best they had ever experienced. Her union of several facets of spirituality with humanity, and the importance of family, made our ceremony that much more special.

Better than we dreamed
Throughout our wedding planning process, my husband and I agreed that choosing Rev. Diane Epstein to help us craft and officiate our ceremony was the best decision we made. Rev. Diane went above and beyond in every measure! Her energy, grace, enthusiasm, patience, and wisdom was exactly what we needed during this time, and we couldn't be more thankful that we found her to work with us. Our ceremony was the most important part of the day to us, and Rev. Diane truly made it exactly what we hoped for. More than a few of our guests even said it was the best ceremony they had witnessed. We wholeheartedly and enthusiastically recommend Rev. Diane to anyone looking for a meaningful, personalized, and lovingly-crafted ceremony!Sent on 11/11/2018
Hudson Valley Interfaith Minister's reply:Thank you for your beautiful, heartfelt words. It was an honor and pleasure to work with you both. Blessings always, Rev. Diane

I had the pleasure to see Rev. Diane Epstein perform a ceremony at Clermont State Historic Site. She brought great enthusiasm to the ceremony. She was also light-hearted and had a great rapport with her couple and their guests. I highly recommend Rev. Diane to officiate at a wedding.
