    Amazing officiant

    Rev D was the officiant for our wedding and she went above and beyond. The survey she sent us was in depth and she follows up with additional questions/clarification a couple of weeks prior to the wedding. Rev D wrote a beautiful ceremony for us and we received so many compliments from our guests. The ceremony was so heartfelt that many people thought she was a friend of ours. Additionally she was incredibly accommodating, we had a filipino ceremony and she worked with us to create a ceremony that reflected us as a couple and respected my culture. Outside of the ceremony she was very helpful. A couple of the guys had issues with the boutonnieres and she jumped right in to help out. I would recommend Rev D to anyone looking for a reasonably priced, professional, and one of a kind officiant

    Incredible!

    I usually only use the word INCREDIBLE to describe My (Now) Husband,but RevD is just that!! She went the extra mile In every way to Insure us a totally personalized,intimate,BLAST of an elopement!..I found her through our photographer,whom she had worked with many times before,and upon first glance I knew she was going to be the one for us!(My then fiancé,completely conquered after one video chat with The Rev)...My Husband,is not religious,and is a constant joker.Together,we are a Non-traditional,Fun-loving ,over-emotional couple, who knew that a more traditional,stodgy officiant was not gonna work for us..Enter Rev D!! The off-beat officiant of our dreams.We put our trust in her,and she exceeded our expectations in every way..We HIGHLY recommend her!!

    I have worked with the Rev D on a total of six weddings, and I can say with confidence that she is one of the best officiants in the entire New York metropolitan area. She really takes care of the couples she marries. She runs a tiny video camera from a discreet location, so everyone gets a video recording of the custom ceremony she writes whether they hired a videographer or not. Her experience as the front woman for a rock band (yes, really) means she can fix any sound system moments before the ceremony or reception speeches (I've seen her do it, twice.) Her bespoke ceremonies are written based on a questionnaire that her clients fill out beforehand. The guests laugh and cry every time. EVERY TIME! She officiates a lot of themed weddings for couples planning unique weddings. You want to be married by Elvira, Mistress of the Dark? She'll do it. How about Wonder Woman? That, too. I've photographed her officiating a Halloween wedding in Sleepy Hollow where the Headless Horseman came. (You can bet that made my Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/BaFBbcblSMx/?taken-by=milestoneangie) She can tone it down, too, of course. She does not dress as Elvira for baby blessing ceremonies, for instance. If you are looking for a creative, affordable officiant in the New York area, the Rev D is your woman.

    The Reverend D is the real deal! We've worked together in New York and New Jersey. She is perfect for offbeat brides & grooms. She is up for anything. We worked together at a wedding that required steampunk attire from the vendors and it was amazing!!! She knows how to put together a ceremony for alternative couples.
