She brought the light.
Reverend Deborah Steen Ross was just the gravitas we wanted for our ceremony. We are an interfaith couple and wanted both incorporated in the vows. First Reverend Deb (what I call her) met with us, and asked us the important questions. Both my husband and I fell in love with her wit, humor and caring. She offered us suggestions for our wedding and that listened to our responses. What was created was a moment to remember. She showed up on time, calmed everyone's nerves, and has the clearest and most eloquent speaking voice. She went through the ceremony with deliberate care, even steadying us as we offered our personal vows of commitment. All of our guests felt connected to us and felt the sincerity of our feelings. Reverend kept that space for us. Then with a memorable and salient Blessing, she sent us off to begin our lives. Of note, she began and ended on time and did not rush us. We are now devotees. She is worth every effort. Thank you Reverend.Sent on 11/25/2019

They were truly professional while being warm and welcoming at the same time
My husband and I were married by Rabbi Roger and Rev. Deb May 26, 2018. They were so incredibly wonderful through the whole process. We were told by many people that it was the most beautiful ceremony they had been too. And that is truly thanks to the rabbi and reverend. My husband and I would recommend them to anyone getting married. The best part is that they truly care. These are two people who love getting to be apart of such a special day.Sent on 03/19/2019

My wife and I were introduced to Rabbi Ross after hiring Father John Voglio (who was wonderful as well) to preside over our interfaith wedding ceremony. Once we met the Rabbi at his home, we knew we were in good hands. He was extremely courteous and generous with his time and guidance, as Amanda and I were very unsure of what to do. Between Rabbi Ross and Father John, we couldn’t have asked for two better clergymen to preside over our wedding. The ceremony itself was full of love, humor and wisdom. Several wedding guests came up to us afterwards and told us it was the best wedding ceremony they had ever seen. Rabbi Ross took extremely good care of us and we are excited to welcome him into our lives for the big moments of our family in the future.Sent on 09/13/2017
