    Could not have been better!

    Getting married was the easy decision. After a short engagement the decision was who to find to host a small service in a back-yard garden in Topanga Canyon. I wanted a Rabbi but, someone who was reform, open-minded and comfortable with an extremely relaxed and short service. My husband-to-be wanted someone who was ‘not religious at all,’ which I understood and respected. We are both from Jewish families but, for us, it was about honoring the traditions while leaving the g-word to a minimum (if at all.)

    Once I placed a couple calls to Rabbi’s in the LA area it was quickly pointed out that our wedding day was on a Jewish holiday. Well… not on a holiday exactly. It was the eve before a holiday and that was going to be a problem. One Rabbi, who I found first through a quick google search, told me point blank “no one is going to do this; you should move your wedding day.” What else could have been more calming to hear for a bride doing all the planning herself and people already scheduled to fly in from out of town!

    We asked around and eventually found Chaplin Stephen Macht. I emailed him on several different sites in my desperation. He quickly contacted me and said he would be available on that day.

    Choosing Stephen was one of the best we made. He sent us a list of questions to fill out. In the midst of major life changes (apart from the wedding planning) we were really slow in getting back to him with this. He was always incredibly patient with us. We really took our time and thought about our answers. These answers help craft your service so really give it some thought. Stephen, myself, and my now husband really worked together as a team to craft the ceremony with all the things that are important and not important to us. We never felt pressured to do anything that wasn’t ‘us.’

    My sister-in-law got a quick sneak peek at the script before the wedding and was crying. She has been to more weddings that I can count, and said this was far and away the best (most personal) service she has ever read. The service was perfect. Even before the ceremony, Stephen told us that if we needed anything we could call him. Although, we didn’t really need much it was nice to offer.

    We really couldn’t thank Stephen enough for all he did. There are a few make-or-break things in every wedding. Having a skilled chaplain was one of essentials, and we can’t recommend him more highly! Stephen enabled my husband and I to have the wedding that was right for us. Our ceremony truly was the right blend of honoring our Jewish heritage in a non-religious way which was just right for us. We are so thankful!

    Stephen did an amazing job officiating our wedding! Not only did we love our ceremony, we got so many compliments from our guests. We gave him the challenge of a non religious ceremony that incorporated traditional Jewish elements. Stephen found the perfect balance and also found a way to make it very personalized to us. He is also very professional and very responsive.
