Rabbi Sanford Olshansky is a wedding officiant based in Rockledge Florida performing customized, personalized weddings throughout Centreal Florida, including Orlando, Disney, and Daytona. He has been part of the local wedding industry since 2013, specializing in Jewish and interfaith ceremonies. Couples and their families, of all faiths, tell him consistently that his ceremony was a beautiful and meaningful part of their special day.
Since his ordination in 2011, after four years of intensive study, Rabbi Olshansky has performed dozens of weddings, in Florida and at overseas destinations. Each ceremony was unique, just as each couple is unique. If yours is an interfaith wedding, he will acknowledge and honor family traditions of non-Jewish partners as much as possible. Rabbi Olshansky believes in finding a balance between what is meaningful to couples and their families with Jewish tradition. He usually meets with couples 3 times in order to be able to speak about them personally and to customize the ceremony. Rabbi Olshansky's typical ceremony runs under 30 minutes. He also performs vow renewals and will participate in rehearsals if requested. Couples can feel confident that their beautiful, personalized ceremony will reflect the most important thing: their love for each other.

Perfect choice for interfaith wedding
Rabbi Olshansky, from our first introduction via Skype (we live in Texas but our ceremony was in Florida) to our beautiful ceremony by the ocean, was a true gem. We were so fortunate to have found him. At first we thought we might have both a Rabbi as well as a Minister but we both felt so comfortable with Rabbi Olshansky and didn't think we needed anyone else to officiate at our wedding. He is a very warm, witty, kind person and we both feel fortunate to have met him.Sent on 01/02/2019

We loved working with Rabbi O! He really took the time to get to know us over our skype calls to ensure that his remarks about us would be personal to our relationship. He was flexible on what we wanted to include and what we didn’t. And was extremely responsive on answering emails with questions as well as proof reading our ketubah and programs. We highly recommend him for Jewish or interfaith couples.

Rabbi O was an amazing officiant and person. He met with my (now wife) and our 17 month old daughter (who can be a little inpatient) and spent the time to get to know us and provide a tailored ceremony given our different faiths. He explained everything and helped us have a gorgeous ceremony. I can’t recommend him enough. If you are really looking for someone who actually cares about the couples he marries, then look no further. Thank you for sharing in our special day!
