On WeddingWire since 2012

Congratulations on your engagement! My name is Sarah Gutmann and I am an interfaith minister and founder of the non-denominational Footprint Ministry serving Long Island, Westchester, Putnam and NYC. Over the past ten years I have had the honor of officiating more than 1,000 weddings and baby blessings! Just like each couple, every ceremony is special and unique. I strive to make the ceremony planning process meaningful, fun, and stress-free. I welcomes all couples, backgrounds, and beliefs.

Services Offered

I will meet with you and your future spouse to learn how you met, what made you fall in love and how you came to this wonderful point in your relationship. I use these detail to create an intimate personalized ceremony that you and your guests will never forget. This is YOUR ceremony and just like your relationship it should reflect your values, spiritual or religious needs (or non-spiritual), and your style!

I officiate personalized ceremonies, baby blessings, civil union, non-religious, vow renewal, interfaith ceremony, and single religion. For any one who needs to get married in a hurry, I offer a “Get Hitched Quick” service which includes the signing of a marriage license with no ceremony. (Please note, Suffolk, Nassau, and Westchester do NOT recognize minister credentials from the Universal Life Church and The Monstary)

Thanks for taking the time to learn about me! Give me a call or send me an email so I can learn about the of YOU and help you create the ceremony of your dreams!

So Glad We Did Not Go With A Friend!

We are so thankful we found Sarah! We had a friend who we were going to use but out of nowhere he backed out. We were panicking but Sarah came in and saved the day. She was friendly, professional, and calming. She created a perfect ceremony and our guests were shocked to discover we had just met her since she really portrayed our story as though she was there every step of the way!

Phenomenal Ceremony

We knew within 15 minutes of meeting Sarah that she had to be our officiant. It was good vibes from the very start. She asked the right questions to get to know us and our relationship. We even got to know her too! She guided us when it came to picking what we wanted like readings, poems etc. And reaching out to her was never a problem. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful and we received so many compliments from our guests, saying how ceremonies are usually boring and dull but ours was one of the best they’ve been to. She incorporated humor into our love story, which is exactly what we wanted. All in all, she nailed it. Our ceremony was everything we could’ve imagined it to be. I highly recommend Sarah to anyone and everyone. The Riveras thank you Sarah for being a phenomenal officiant & giving us the best ceremony!

Sarah is the best!!

We chose Sarah as our officiant after seeing her perform a ceremony at a friend’s wedding. We are so happy we decided to go with her for our ceremony. When we first met with Sarah she asked us questions about us as a couple and our relationship. I can’t believe the beautiful words she wrote with the information we gave her when we first met. She was so chill and laid back which is exactly what we wanted for our day.

I had the recent pleasure of working with Sarah Gutmann. What I loved most about her and her level of service was the fact that she really took the opportunity to learn about my client's and thier "love story" in an effort to intertwine their union into the ceremony details. I have worked with MANY officiants and Sarah was quick, witty, and developed a beautiful ceremony outline for my bride and groom. I have since recommended Sarah to future clients who have fell in love with her just as much as I did! THANK YOU SARAH! You are for sure my go-to-gal!
