Rev. Stuart provided a beautifully worded and meaningful wedding ceremony for us this past weekend. As it was the second marriage for both of us we also wanted our children included in the ceremony. When we met in the spring to create our ceremony he recommended using unity sand, a different color for each of the five of us, as a way to incorporate the kids. Our children loved this idea and our guests were very touched by the way it was explained and represented the joining of all of our lives together. Prior to our ceremony our two youngest started to get nervous, Rev. Stuart assured them everything would be ok and he would be right there to help them after they walked down the aisle.
His compassion, professionalism and fun-loving spirit will make your ceremony truly enjoyable for you and your guests!

Rev Stu was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He knew exactly what we were looking for in our ceremony and was super helpful with his suggestions. He was able to personalize our ceremony so it came out perfectly. We wanted a short yet sentimental ceremony and Stu delivered! The day of he also provided a print of our vows which was so amazing! Definitely recommend to all future brides!

My husband and I knew Stu from growing up in the Woodstock area and always knew him as a fun, talented, and caring member of the local community. When we saw his name while looking for someone to officiate our Wedding at Onteora Mountain House, we recognized him immediately and knew he would just be the perfect fit. Neither my husband nor I are religious (although his mother's family is Jewish and I was raised in family of Italian catholics), so we knew we wanted a ceremony that respected all Faiths while remaining Agnostic.
We had an initial meeting with Stu via Skype where we got to know him and learn about what he does -- he has a commitment to delivering a high-quality "show" that will pack an emotional punch while remaining light hearted and sweet. He has pages and pages of beautifully-worded, carefully-crafted ceremony ideas to help get you started in planning your ceremony. More than anything, his ceremony ideas showed us that he was able to create the perfect vibe for a ceremony that would be tailored specifically to us. He also helped us understand the actual marriage license filing process and after the Wedding, did the filing for us -- a huge help! On the day of our Wedding, he was supportive, helpful, and calm. I got the sense that he was completely in control and prepared and he really made sure to assure me that he had it covered.
Our wedding was lovely, but our ceremony was exceptionally lovely, and was one of the most raved-about parts of the day. Stu reads the audience beautifully, cracking jokes when appropriate, and making you feel the true magic of the moment. We cried. We laughed. And we had FUN.
Thank you, Stu.

What can i say about Stu? I recommend him to every one of our couples, not just because he married my wife and I...but he's a great guy with a great sense of humor and he brings a level of calm amongst the weddings he officiates. My couples always say how happy they are they chose Stu after meeting him, can't go wrong..he's the best!
