Hire Tanya!

I heard Tanya on betches brides in 2021 before I was engaged and I knew that I wanted to at least have her be a part of the vow writing process for myself and my now husband. I loved the idea of us having a third party hearing and seeing both of our vows to ensure we had similar amounts of humor, seriousness, and lengths. We ended up hiring Tanya to officiate our wedding as well and we were so happy with the vow and ceremony creation process. Nothing is one size fits all with Tanya and we felt every detail was tailored to us as a couple. She met with us several times individually to practice and coach us on our public speaking with the vows and even met with me the morning of the wedding in the bridal suite to go over it one more time. She is truly a professional and knows when to get out of the way for photos during the ceremony - she even sat on the stairs of our venue while we delivered our vows to each other! We are still receiving compliments on our ceremony and vows over a month after our wedding! Tanya was a joy to work with from start to finish and I would recommend her to anyone!

Amazing Ceremony Experience!

Working with Tanya was an amazing experience! Tanya was so thoughtful and helped us to craft the perfect wedding ceremony. She created a ceremony that really captured us as a couple and felt very genuine. Tanya was so easy to work with, was very responsive, and spent time to get to know our story.

Tanya was not available to officiate our wedding due to a previously scheduled wedding ceremony. She recommended her colleague, Paula. Paula did a fantastic job performing our ceremony. She was such a calming presence, and we loved having her as a part of our day.

We are still receiving compliments from our guests over a month later about how wonderful the ceremony turned out! We would highly recommend working with Tanya.

The Vow Whisperer is REAL!

It’s hard to put into words exactly how impactful Tanya was on our wedding experience, but in short we give her our highest recommendation! We found Tanya by searching for officiants in the NY area, and immediately was attracted to the aesthetics and values that she presented on her website. Tanya provides expertise in many services including vow creation, ceremony curation and as an officiant, but what immediately became clear in our first consult with her is that her true skill is in understanding her clients as individuals and couples, and integrating herself into the appropriate roles that match the couples needs. We are individuals from different cultural backgrounds that had ideas about how we wanted to incorporate both of our values, and Tanya worked with us to sift through all our ideas and create a ceremony that exactly fit our beliefs, desires and ceremony logistics. With regard to timelines, she is prompt in communication and helped us keep to timelines that she established for us, while maintaining flexibility as she truly understands the complexities of process that her clients are going through. Our final product was a ceremony that included both her and another family member as officiants which was executed with precision and comfort and beauty. Even though we didn’t take full advantage of her services in crafting vows, we felt so comfortable with her being part of our special day as she took genuine interest in getting to know us personally and operated with great respect for the moment we were sharing together. She is supported by a wonderful assistant, Queenie, who helped facilitate all our meetings and also adapted to our needs with flexibility. We are so thankful for Tanya and her team, and hope many others get to share such the type of magical wedding experience as we did while working with The Vow Whisperer!
