    Tailored the experience to us and our relaxed personalities. Was on time. Made the ceremony personal, in spite of the fact that we gave him little to work with. He was a great choice.

    The PERFECT choice for our wedding

    We were so pleased with Rabbi Nathan. Going into our wedding, we had a hectic schedule and were not able to meet as much as we had planned. Rabbi Nathan was so flexible with us, and in a short period of time he managed to get to know us wholly. We wanted a ceremony that was filled with music and that celebrated equality while honoring tradition, so Rabbi Nathan took a lot of extra time to research and consult with colleagues. He was both extremely knowledgeable and open to our ideas, which made him so helpful in helping us fit the ceremony we wanted into the Jewish tradition. Our guests were blown away by the ceremony and how much it truly reflected who we are and our values. We can't recommend him enough.

    Rabbi Nathan is warm, wise and wonderful.

    My wife and I instantly connected with Rabbi Nathan. His warmth and wisdom are radiant, and he is a genuinely wonderful man. He worked with us to make our ceremony unique and special, taking into account that we are an interfaith couple. Anyone would be lucky to have Rabbi Nathan officiate their wedding - we highly recommend him!
