    Miriam, a rabbi, co-officiated our wedding with Father Jack Baker, a Catholic priest with whom she frequently collaborates. She worked with us to craft a meaningful ceremony that reflected our values and traditions. Miriam is very organized and early in the process, sent us a comprehensive packet on creating your own wedding ceremony, so we could select exactly which elements and readings we wanted to incorporate. Miriam got to know us well throughout the process and did a great job telling our story and tailoring her remarks specifically to us. We received many compliments on our ceremony from our family members and friends, and even received praise from a Catholic nun. We highly recommend Miriam to officiate at an interfaith wedding, or at any wedding for a couple that is looking to have a meaningful and personalized ceremony.

    Miriam was fantastic to work with. She made our ceremony so special. We feel honored that Miriam married us. It was truly a privilege. She took the time to get to know us and the names of our family members and wedding party and the details of our family members. She helped us arrange the whole ceremony and had great advice through the whole process. Our wedding ceremony was even more special because it was Miriam who married us.
