Helped us find our voice.
Chani helped my wife and I find our own voices within our interfaith wedding. Going in we had no idea how to go about creating a ceremony for our Jewish/Catholic families. Chani helped us realize that the ceremony really needed to be about what we (my wife and I) wanted to say to each other more that what we thought our families wanted to hear. Chani also gave us great suggestions for different elements from each of our religions that we could incorporate into the ceremony that played well on both sides. The thing I appreciated most of all was Chani’s request to sit and meet with us at different points throughout the process leading up to the wedding. It allowed us an opportunity to get to know each other while also giving Chani an opportunity to develop her portion of the ceremony. I was pleasantly surprised on the day of the wedding by how much Chani knew about the two of us. I can't recommend Chani enough!Sent on 01/14/2020

Chani was wonderful for my wife and I as our wedding chaplain. We met several times both together with my wife, and individually to discuss ideas I wanted to explore about marriage. Chani walked us though the hardest part of the ceremony, which is really a key part to agree on, what to do for the ceremony? Chani was amazing at helping us visualize and decide what we wanted. And then on the actual day she was present, gracious, kind, and generous with her energy and professionalism. Highly recommend Chani Getter for wedding chaplaincy services and also spiritual guidance to prepare for marriage. I’m so happy we did that.Sent on 12/05/2019

Chani was not just a wonderful officiant and ran a beautiful ceremony, but she's an absolutely beautiful person. She is incredibly kind, and intelligent, and thoughtful. Her views on life and spirituality and religion are original and authentic, and it always makes for interesting conversations and of course a very thoughtful and beautifully executed ceremony. Chani has a great read on people and having such an intuitive, perceptive officiant allowed her to deliver a unique and personalized service. My husband and I aren't very religious but we wanted a Jewish ceremony, but, wanted to pick and choose which traditions we incorporated. Chani was incredibly flexible and it was clear that her priority was that the two of us and our families were comfortable and happy. She clearly explained the meaning behind every custom, and what incorporating that tradition would look like and about how long it would take, which allowed us to choose those things that emotionally we felt connected to but also remain practical about timing (it was important to us to have a ceremony on the shorter side). Chani's warm and accepting personality, her very eloquent way of speaking, and her prepared and organized way of going about things made her such a pleasure to work with and allowed us to have our dream ceremony. I would highly recommend Chani as an officiant for any ceremony!Sent on 11/04/2016
