    The Best Service

    Without a doubt Donna was the hit of the day and we had a magician and a comidian and DJ with a violinist. She is great and if you want a different memorable day she is a must.

    Rev d was outstanding

    Rev D was OUTSTANDING & I highly recommend her for your big day. From our 1st consultation to our in person meeting Rev was responsive, knowledgeable, understanding and genuinely cared about us and what we expected from our ceremony.
    We received SO MANY compliments throughout our Wedding Night about how personal, unique and US our ceremony was. Our ceremony could not have been more perfect.

    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.
