    Yael is Fabulous!

    We really lucked out when we found Yael to officiate our wedding! Meeting her felt like meeting an old friend - she made the conversation flow naturally and made us feel so comfortable. She seemed genuinely excited to get to know us and our story. We knew we wanted some Jewish traditions weaved throughout the ceremony which Yael was familiar with which was a plus. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect. She kept it short and sweet just like we wanted, but didn't leave anything out! She really nailed us and our story to a T! We couldn't be happier with our choice to have Yael officiate our wedding.

    Our wedding wouldn’t have been the same without Yael

    Yael did such a wonderful job with our June 2019 wedding. From the start, it was clear she wanted to get to know us as a couple and make the ceremony as personal as possible. She managed to get my husband, typically a man of few words, to talk about how we met, our relationship, and the proposal and turned our conversation into a really beautiful ceremony. She included just enough of our Jewish traditions but also worked with us to make it feel updated and modern — relevant to us as a couple. I can’t imagine having had our wedding with any other officiant.
