About Jeddah Vailakis

Jeddah Vailakis is a trustworthy and beloved New York wedding officiant and Interfaith Minister. When working with Jeddah, she will guide you through your inner journey leading up to the day of your wedding, and help you to connect to what matters most.

Her calming nature will guide you through the tough parts of planning, and will keep you centered on the big day. Choosing Jeddah as your officiant is a great first step for planning your wedding.

Experience
Jeddah Vailakis was ordained as a minister in 2002, after a close friend and mentor asked her to fill in as the officiant for a wedding of 350 guests. She fell in love with the role, and has been helping couples on their journey to marriage ever since. Jeddah has been featured twice in Martha Stewart Weddings, offering sage wisdom to couples about the planning process and what to expect during the ceremony itself.

Services Offered
Jeddah offers religious, non religious and interfaith wedding ceremonies and civil unions. Jeddah believes that ceremonies should reflect the couple’s love rather than adhering to strict traditions. She invites couples to choose their own reading materials and write their vows, and will help them to create the perfect wedding as they envision it. Jeddah also offers pre-wedding counseling for couples.

A heartwarming experience for sure. She was professional, accommodating, punctual, and kind. She really made the ceremony feel like one of a kind.
