My husband and I cannot say enough amazing things about Danielle. When we started the process of looking for someone to marry us, I of course spent forever reading through reviews on Wedding wire and the Knot. We came across a LOT of officiants. Danielle's reviews were so detailed and perfect that we decided to reach out to her. We scheduled a Skype call where Dan & I talked to her for at least an hour, maybe more. We got to know each other and we knew right away she was the one for the job. Later on we each filled out a long questionnaire with all of our details including the proposal, our love story, what we loved about each other, and so on. Danielle responded so fast throughout everything and helped us along the way. When we received our first draft of the ceremony, I actually was hysterical crying reading through it. I couldn't believe how personal and perfect it was. Danielle put so many ideas about unity rituals and how to make things flow the best to ensure we had the best ceremony possible. Dan & I made some edits throughout the ceremony and then Danielle scheduled a call with us to go through finishing touches before finalizing the draft. On the actual wedding day, to say Dan & I were blown away is an understatement. Every single one of my guests told me this was the most beautiful ceremony they ever witnessed. They couldn't believe how personal it was and how full of love it was. It was so unique compared to a regular church wedding which even though we are both catholic, we didn't want. We wanted to highlight what we love about each other, and how we met, and how Dan proposed, and our hopes and dreams for the future. Danielle captured ALL of this and more in the beautiful ceremony. I have to say choosing Danielle to be our officiant was the best choice we could have made. She went above and beyond in every single way. She was always ready to help us and the communication was great throughout every step of the process. Thank you so much Danielle!!Sent on 12/13/2016

Amazing Experience with Marisa!
Working with Your Story Ceremonies was a truly wonderful experience. We worked with Marisa as our officiant, and she was absolutely amazing. We met in person and then worked together through e-mail to create the kind of ceremony that worked for us, and she was so accommodating and helpful the whole time. She made us feel very comfortable throughout the process, and most of all before and during the ceremony when my husband and I were both a little nervous about being in front of everyone. So many people at our wedding came up to me after and thought that we were old friends because of how personal she made everything! She's a true professional with a real talent for writing a meaningful, beautiful ceremony. If you're looking for an officiant on Long Island, I highly recommend Your Story Ceremonies!Sent on 02/05/2020

interfaith wedding service
We had an inter faith wedding. Marissa was amazing to work with and made our dreams come true. Our service was beautiful and so personal. I wasnt sure we would find someone to provide everything we both wanted from both religions but she made it happen! We had a hand fasting performed and a breaking of the glass. We also had family members do readings. She was great and revised our service multiple times before the day so we could be comfortable. IF we did it all again we would 100 times over use her again!Sent on 12/11/2019
Danielle is a natural charmer, a keen-eyed scribe and a delightful storyteller. She was meant for wedding ceremonies the way sails are made for the wind. There are probably better metaphors to describe the unique alchemy of Danielle's work in the wedding world; may many couples get to experience working with her.
