Yael is Amazing!!!
We saw Yael officiate a friends wedding and knew we had to have her for ours! She spends so much time, thought, and effort into writing the ceremony. Everyone thought we had known her for years- which is exactly how we felt at our friends wedding. Yael has the most amazing ability to personalize ceremonies to make it feel truly unique and special. I also worked with Yael in writing vows. She spent hours with me to write the most beautiful vows ever! Could not recommend her enough. She is the best!Sent on 11/18/2019

Yael was everything you would ever want or need in a wedding officiant. She made everything so easy and lovely and really took the time to get to know us as a couple, which allowed her to write the most beautiful ceremony. She was always responsive and so incredibly helpful. We cannot imagine our day without her!Sent on 10/08/2019

The perfect ceremony!
Yael was the officiant for our 9/7/19 wedding and she was AMAZING! I hate to copy from another review, but someone mentioned how she “exudes kindness” and that is so spot on. She asked such thoughtful questions during our first meeting and the conversation was so easy it felt like we were just catching up with an old friend. Yael put together a beautiful ceremony, and was so open to the couple tweaks we had, it was absolutely perfect for us. We got so many compliments on the ceremony in the weeks since the wedding. A lot of guests even asked how we knew each other, the personal feel that Yael gave the ceremony had many people thinking we were good friends. We’re so happy Yael was able officiate us and could not recommend her enough!
