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. Jeddah has a passion for storytelling, and will narrate your love story in ways that are meaningful and memorable for you and your guests. 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.

    Wonderful!

    From our initial conversation on the phone with Jeddah we knew she was who we wanted to marry us. Her words were so thoughtful, she asked us questions to get our minds thinking about the special times over our years together which allowed us to re-visit special moments in our relationship. Meeting her in NYC was a helpful step to really know we were making the right choice - she was so warm and connected with us instantly. She was very thorough & explained her process to us upfront so we knew what to expect throughout the entire planning process. Her follow-up questionnaire was very detailed which helped form our ceremony & allowed us a great timeline to write our vows which meant a lot to us. Jeddah's personality was contagious, she had everyone in the room filled with tears & laughter connecting with our family & friends. Our guests still commented on how beautiful the ceremony was. We are so grateful to have found her and have had her as part of our most special day.
