Rabbi Winer made our magical wedding that much more so. My now-husband and I interviewed several rabbis before finally selecting Rabbi Winer -- it was important to us that our rabbi got to know us as people before officiating at the most important day of our lives, and he shared our conviction in the value of multiple face-to-face meetings prior to "the big day." We came to love Rabbi Winer so much, we had him (and Laurie andSent on 07/10/2017

Rabbi Winer was great to work with from the start and put together an absolutely beautiful ceremony. After we booked our venue in Waitsfield, VT - we quickly realized that it was the longest day of the year.. on a Saturday.. which was going to make it difficult to find a rabbi to marry us. From the first time speaking with Rabbi Winer he put our minds at ease that he was willing to travel, accepting of our interfaith marriage, and would perform the ceremony as long as we signed our Ketubah after sun down. We wanted religion in our ceremony and it was so great that Rabbi Winer was open and accepting of us.Sent on 06/25/2019
During our meetings and discussions before the wedding he really took the time to get to know us. This showed in the ceremony and added so much warmth. He recommended the circling of the groom, the 7 blessings, and blending of the wines as a symbol of our blended families. The ceremony was absolutely wonderful thanks to Rabbi Winer and his warm outgoing style. We could not be more grateful.
Rabbi Rick creates ceremonies which convey what's at the very heart of your relationship - LOVE! He always speaks from the heart with words both sentimental and with a touch of humor. He is experienced weaving together customs and traditions from various cultures and is open to help any couple along their marriage journey.
