Stephen is the absolute best! We couldn't have been happier with him as our wedding officiant. We were initially supposed to marry in January 2017, however, due to an unexpected death in the family, we had to delay the wedding a year. Stephen graciously stuck by us for the three-year period that we worked together. He was incredibly kind, attentive, conscientious, thoughtful, and supportive throughout the process. He was very organized, thorough, and collaborative as he guided us to put together a beautiful, thoughtful, personalized ceremony. It was very clear to us that Stephen loves what he does and has a true gift.Sent on 07/04/2018
When the big day came, he delivered with flying colors. Our ceremony was everything we could have hoped for and more. Stephen was able to perfectly articulate and express why our relationship is beshert. It was like having an old friend marry us. His delivery was perfect. Stephen captivated the audience throughout the ceremony and received rave reviews from all who attended -- we've lost track of how many people have told us that it was the best ceremony they have ever attended. When we reflect on our wedding the two of us ultimately agree that the ceremony was the best part of the entire wedding. We could not recommend Stephen more -- snap him up!
We love you, Stephen!

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.Sent on 10/09/2018
