Jeff was deeply instrumental in creating a perfect wedding day. From our initial meeting, which lasted close to two hours because he was so invested in understanding us as a couple, we felt at ease placing our ceremony in his hands. He has wide-ranging knowledge about various cultural and religious traditions, and consequently, was able to help us design a ceremony that conformed to our religious and cultural backgrounds, representing our diversity as a couple. Additionally, he guided us as we navigated a way to include my stepson in our ceremony, providing suggestions (which included personal vows I wrote to my stepson, as well as a small gift that I gave him as a token of our newly formed bond), that were thoughtful, loving, and simply stated: perfect.
Jeff is articulate, sensitive, witty, and has an incredible sense of humor, all qualities that were evident during our wedding ceremony. Numerous guests commented on Jeff delivering THE most sweet and personal wedding ceremony they had ever attended. My husband and I MORE than highly recommend Jeff's services.

We asked for simple and sweet for our elopement. He met us at the location of our choosing and even offered suggestions of places as we were not from the area. He was flexible with what time we chose (married on a holiday). Very professional and was extremely friendly. Highly reccomend.

Jeff made everything easy and simple!
From our first meeting at the local Panera Bread, to our continuous email communication, to our wedding day, it was an absolute pleasure working with our officant, Jeff Maszal. He was everything we could hope for: patient, flexible, full of helpful suggestions, and always carry a positive attitude.
After our meeting at Panera Bread to get to know each other better, Jeff sent us an email with different templates for the ceremony that proved to be very helpful when we start selecting blessings and readings. He offered suggestions that he feel may be of use to us, given our cultural wish to respect and honor our families. When our wedding ceremony changed from a simple (and separate) civil ceremony into a more complicated mix of civil and Vietnamese tea ceremony, Jeff was more than ready to work with us to enable a smooth transition/bridging of the two ceremonies (within the same hour and venue!). As Jeff had prior experience with Viet/Chinese tea ceremonies, it made it all so much easier.
On the wedding day, Jeff was the total professional and yet, also a caring friend. He took care of us, kept us calm and anxiety-free. The ceremony was beautiful, and all our families and guests were impressed by his delivery. My non-Vietnamese in-laws found his words touching, and my traditionalist Vietnamese parents thought it was well done how he bridged the civil and tea ceremony effortlessly. Through his gentle voice, his steady demeanor, and his well-chosen words, Jeff gave our wedding ceremony so much more meaning and made it all the more special. Thanks Jeff!!!
