    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!

    The personal ceremony you are looking for!

    A perfect ceremony! Yael was amazing and really gave us the unique personal ceremony we wanted. She took the time to really get to know us, and wrote a beautiful custom ceremony about us. We got so many complements from our guest about how beautiful and touching the ceremony was, and asking how long we've known her thinking it was a longtime friend :) I also really liked that we could review it prior together, make edits and tweaks to make it really fit us. It was tender and sweet, and a little funny like us, and it was also important to us that it carried some Jewish traditions for us and our families. I highly recommend her!

    Absolutely amazing!

    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!
