    Fantastic Officiant

    Yael truly went above and beyond for our ceremony. She took the time to learn our history and wove it beautifully into the ceremony. She told a story instead of just reciting a rehearsed monologue. She is so well organized with everything! Go with Yael, you will be so happy you did!

    Thank you so much Shonlyn! It was so special to come out to California for your wedding--thank you for allowing me to officiate your ceremony. I wish you and Elie the very best!

    Personalized Ceremony

    Yael was a great officiant who really took the time to get to know us in order to write a personalized ceremony. She was very responsive, on time and we got our marriage certificate back within about three weeks after the ceremony without any issues. She was also very flexible when we had a last minute time and location change for our ceremony due to rain,
