Officiant for Interfaith Wedding
My husband and I are so glad that we chose Laurie to be the officiant at our wedding. We were a little hesitant at first with choosing a Rabbi as we are a mixed-religion couple (Jewish and Christian) and didn’t want to have a wedding that focused too much on one religion or the other in order to make both sides of our future family happy. After a few minutes talking to Laurie, however, we realized that our fears were totally unnecessary. From the start, Laurie focused on making the wedding about us as a couple and not about what religions we followed. She helped guide us in making a ceremony tailored to our preferences while allowing us to explore what made us special as a couple and what brought us to the altar that day. We met with Laurie on two occasions before the wedding and, at those meetings, she was able to develop a natural rapport with us and carried that, as well as the stories and inside jokes we had, into a ceremony that felt like us. On the day of the wedding, the ceremony she crafted was beautiful and helped us to make memories of that day that will last forever. We were overjoyed with our ceremony and you will be too if you choose Laurie to be your officiant.Sent on 08/23/2019

Rabbi Laurie is amazing to work with! She helped us navigate a ceremony that was very personal for us but still traditional. She was super responsive and helped us prepare by carefully explaining what we needed to do to for the ceremony. She paid close attention to use and told stories about how much my husband and I care for each other and even noticed that I almost tripped and my husband had covered all the trip hazards around the huppah with his foot to save me embarrassment and keep me safe. She added that detail into the service and it was so beautiful. I had no idea this was happening and she brought me back into the moment to let me know how much Zach cares about me! After the ceremony almost every guest complimented us on how wonderful our service was and had wonderful things to say about Rabbi Laurie.Sent on 05/15/2018
