Rabbi Wendy was a joy to have as a part of our wedding. She helped us over several months leading up to the wedding by guiding us in seeking out marriage preparation materials and in crafting our vision statement for our family, by counseling us on how to emotionally prepare for such a large commitment, and perhaps most importantly - by delivering an OUTSTANDING wedding ceremony. Many of our guests commented to us that it was one of the most beautiful and intimate ceremonies of which they had ever been a part. That was one of our favorite aspects, actually: Rabbi Wendy's service included the participation of all of our guests, which helped cultivate for all in attendance an atmosphere of community bonding and support. This is exactly what we would hope for as we head into this great new adventure in life.
Many thanks to her for all of her help. Very highly recommended!

Rabbi Wendy was so helpful and so engaging. She walked my husband-to-be and I through the entire integrated wedding process and service with kindness and warmth. I would highly recommend Rabbi Wendy to anyone requiring a reformed Rabbi as an officiant. She is a wonderful woman and person!

Rabbi Wendy was very supportive through the whole wedding process. We are an interacial and interfaith couple, so it was challenging finding a rabbi. Luckily ,Rabbi Wendy has a lot of experience working with similar couples. As soon as we met her, we knew that we wanted to book her. We met with her twice in person to not only talked about the wedding ceremony but also about how to navigate the challenges in marriage. She helped us through the process of selecting and ordering a ketubah. The ketubah signing and wedding ceremony were beautiful, meaningful, and special. Rabbi Wendy did a wonderful job officiating and explaining the Jewish elements. We are happy she was part of our big day!
Rabbi Wendy's soothing and joyous personality keeps all the members of the wedding party, and family, calm and focused so that they can enjoy the essential part of the wedding, the ceremony. She is spirited, poetic, and with an excellent sense of humor. Someone you can trust to be at your side and guide you through your ceremony with ease.
I LOVED working with Rabbi Wendy!! Her weddings are beautiful, personal to each couple, and a pleasure to witness. I also greatly appreciated how she asked the guests to be in the moment, and not consumed with taking their own photos during the ceremony... Wish every officiant did this, makes the photographers job so much easier!!
