Emily was beyond fantastic. Her ceremony incorporated much of our back story, the right mix of gravity and levity and had everyone in the house laughing and crying. I think we had almost as many compliments on the ceremony as we did the bridal dress.
We met with her and went through the entire ceremony from front to back in almost the exact language we used in the wedding. It was a great reassurance to know that the legal and ceremonial part of our wedding was completely taken care of months in advance.
I can't recommend her enough.

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.
