    Wonderful ceremony!

    Emily has been doing special events in my family for the past 12 years! She married both my nieces and blessed both their babies. What makes Emily so special is that she personalizes each ceremony to the couple. So many guests said they never had so much fun at a wedding ceremony. If you are looking for more than just a quick ‘I Do’ check out Emily. She is super easy to work with.

    We had our wedding at bear mountain in the hudson valley, NY. We were very pleased with Emily. She helped us design a very elegant bilingual ceremony (French and English). All our guest were really impressed with her ceremony. I would highly recommend her for a wedding(or other ceremonies), especially if you are looking for a bilingual ceremony. Her comments and availibility were a +.

    Emily did an exceptional job crafting our wedding ceremony. It was everything we could've hoped for and more. The journey to our wedding ceremony was challenging sometimes but she really helped us stay focused on what was important as well as serving as a compassionate, sensitive and patient shepherd to a ceremony we will cherish for the rest of our lives. She created a deeply personal ceremony that reflected our values and the spirit in which we wanted to enter our marriage.

    Her work was one of the many blessings bestowed on our marriage. So many people told us how moving the ceremony was and what a great job she did. Even the musicians were crying! We highly recommend Emily.

After marrying over 250 couples, more than ever I believe that what makes this a life-expanding job is that the two of you are unique, that your love story could only be yours. Your style, your sense of humor, your romance, your faith in the future. That's what we share when we create a ceremony for the ones you love, the folks who gather together on your wedding day. Their love for you makes any place a sacred space. Your love for each other brings everyone there together. I just tell your story.
