I am a certified life-cycle celebrant/officiant that works with couples to create a ceremony that is highly personalized and sacred. I officiate weddings in New York State: Adirondacks, Catskills, Saratoga County and the Mohawk Valley. I also officiate in Pennsylvania: Poconos, Scranton, and Jim Thorpe area. I am very excited to announce I am officiating in the beautiful state of Vermont too! Together we craft a ceremony that has all the finesse, flair, spirituality, and magic that you two would like. A wedding from the heart is a ceremony that comes from your own deep feelings and influences others that are there to witness your ceremony. It is a sacred chalice of your love and a special frame for the portrait of the two of you as you unite with high hopes, dreams and a desire to honor your relationship. It is a celebration of love and joy. It is an expression of commitment that is made in the presence of family and friends. It can be a traditional wedding ceremony or non-traditional. I will listen to what your vision is and from that information, we will create a one of a kind ceremony. The process is finding the right ritual, readings, remembrances, blending of family vows, ring, and wedding vows and whatever else you may want to include. I also help people write their own vows. Truly this is a wonderful process of creating a unique wedding ceremony that reflects the two of you. The "love story" is another option as well. It truly is one of the most magical and beautiful parts of the ceremony. We collaborate through your stories about your beginnings, dreams, visions for the future, and what you value in your partner. It is a lovely addition to your ceremony and of course very unique to the two of you. My career as a life-cycle celebrant includes other ceremonies such as funerals, healing from trauma, pet ceremonies, baby blessings, women empowerment ceremonies too. I adore my WORK! I am very honored to be awarded: 2016, 2017 and 2018 Couples' Choice for Officiant through WEDDING WIRE.

Father Jonathan was our officiant for our wedding on 1/17/2016. He was very responsive from the first time with contacted him. He met with us a couple of times to get to know us and help us on how to make this big day, an special, and unforgettable one. He walked us through the whole ceremony, step by step. We honestly feel that we couldn't have started our marriage life with a better blessing than his. He made the ceremony how we wanted it. He was not only a person to get us marriage that day, but also a coach/ advisor for what is to come in our marriage life. We are extremely happy that we found him. Our guest were also delighted by the way he conducted the ceremony and how meaningful everything was. We highly recommend him. He is very professional on what he does. He is open minded and will make your ceremony how you want it to assure to make it the best day of your life. That's how we feel now. You won't need to look for anybody else, you found the best officiant out there. Highly recommended! We were so honored to have father Jonathan Gray officiate a wedding yesterday. From the moment we met him after reading all his reviews we knew that we had to have him, he didn't amazing job and making us feel comfortable and did a beautiful ceremony for us he's down to earth happy always with a smile and the men of the Lord. My husband and I come from different religious backgrounds and he didn't charge us for that and still put on a beautiful ceremony for us. Amazing! Absolutely wonderful. From start to finish Father Gray was amazing! Thank you. Thank you so very much for Jim and Didi Slingerlands ceremony.

God bless From Janna Fr. Jonathan was wonderful, very responsive and the ceremony went beautifully. Thank you so much Fr Jonathan, we couldn't be happier, Erick and Jody Brown! Father Jon is such a wonderful person. He took the time to sit down with us and discuss his thoughts and feelings about the bible. He then helped us to tailor our wedding to us. He is a wonderful man whom I would recommend to anyone. Thank you Father John. I cannot say enough about how wonderful Fr. Jonathan was for our wedding. Coming from a mixed Christian background each of us felt like our faith was given due justice. We met twice before the wedding and each time was easy - it was clear we were all on the same wavelength. We received such wonderful comments from our guests regarding the ceremony. We would recommend Fr. Jonathan to anyone! Thank you Fr. Jonathan for everything! Sincerely, Meredith & Joe Fr. Jon was a blessing. We were able to have a Catholic wedding and a full mass service.

From the Heart Ceremonies
14 Reviews | Albany, NY
Hi, I'm Dianne Patterson and I became a Marriage Officiant because I love everything about weddings—the celebratory mood, the coming together of family and friends, the attention to detail, the couple’s excited anticipation and, of course, the special role I’m privileged to play in their big day. This passion inspires me when I put my writing and public speaking skills to work crafting and presenting each personalized marriage ceremony. Here's an excerpt from a recent email a couple wrote as we worked on their ceremony together: "Attached are the revisions to the incredible script you wrote. Wow! It is so lovely, and we are thrilled about the tree [planting] ceremony." Couples who have a clear vision for their ceremony, those who aren’t sure where to begin, and those who fall somewhere in between will appreciate the enthusiasm and patience I bring to working with each and every couple. Those who choose me as their officiant find the ease of working with me lessens their stress when there are so many other things on their minds. You can choose from templates for the logistics and components of your ceremony or we'll customize as much or as little of the service as you want. We'll draft a "script" so family and members of the wedding party will be comfortable knowing where to be and when. If you would like readings and/or a unity ceremony as part of your service, there are many options and I'll make recommendations for you. You’re welcome to call me for a getting-acquainted conversation—and there’s no obligation. Here's a little bit about me. I enjoy traveling with my husband of 28 years and watching our college-age son participate in swim meets. I'm an advocacy volunteer for the Humane Society of the United States, working for animal welfare protections at the state Capitol. I've been a hands-on animal care volunteer for the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society and the Red Rover international rescue group. In January 2018, we adopted a Beagle/Hound mix from a local rescue group. He hails from Puerto Rico and his name is Taco. Congratulations and best of luck!

I am an ordained minister and certified officiant serving couples in the Capital Region of New York State. I have been performing wedding ceremonies since 2001 with a focus on military couples. Since then I have lived in Colorado, Europe, and back to New York. Put simply, my focus is creating a customized ceremony that reflects who you are as individuals and as a couple. At our first meeting, I answer any and all questions you may have. If you select me as your officiant, the time until your wedding we will get together every so often. Whether you want formal meetings or just hanging out, having a drink, coffee, or sharing a meal, I'm learning about the two of you. Whether you want to be aware of every detail of your ceremony, or want to be surprised... whether you want to laugh during your ceremony or have it as a solemn occasion... you have as much or as little control over the process as you prefer. For example, some couples want traditional vows, some want to write their own, some leave it to me to write them. There are no itemized or extra charges for my level of involvement. If you want a meeting every month and want me at the rehearsal, or if we only meet up a few times, it's all part of what I offer. If you need help planning out your ceremony, or need some referrals for other vendors with specific services, I provide that as well. Most of all, I want the two of you to enjoy your day with as little concern as possible about the little things. I've been known to run interference for parents, family, or friends who try to detract from making the day about your marriage. Also, you have many other officiants to choose from. I'm an option, not competition. It is always a pleasure to meet new couples, and I encourage you to send me a message, phone call, or meet me to see if I'm the right fit for the two of you.

Celebrations Beyond Belief
2 Reviews | Troy, NY
For many of us, religious belief is something long abandoned in favor of rational thought and personal responsibility. In daily life, that seems to work just fine. The world is just as rich and beautiful, full of discovery and brilliance – but as human beings, we are drawn to ritual and tradition, and for many of us, that tradition is grounded in religious faith. So how do you represent who you have become, while celebrating the most important moments of your life? I believe in the amazing potential of human beings. I believe this world is all there is, and that all the wonders of this world are more than enough. I believe it is possible to invoke art, literature, music, good food and drink, and the human bonds we have forged with those we care for, to celebrate life’s milestones. All of the majesty, kinship and significance exist without the need for divisive and exclusionary rhetoric or inflexible dogma. I’d like to help you plan a ceremony to remember . . .

Rev. Jude Smith - Interfaith Minister
88 Reviews | Rhinebeck, NY
Congratulations! You have chosen to embark on one of life’s greatest adventures – the committed partnership between two people, each devoted to unconditionally loving the other, and to working together in common purpose and shared harmony. And just as you have chosen to formally sanctify the depth of your relationship, you are also about to choose the style of ceremony and the officiant that best reflects your personal, spiritual and emotional preferences. As a non-denominational interfaith minister, I hold the perspective that there is an essential and common spirituality underlying all of the world's faith traditions. It is a spirituality that speaks to the universal truths that resonate within our hearts, serving to authentically connect people on an intuitive level. I bring that authentic expression of spirituality to the ceremonies I jointly create with couples in such a way that the experience is sacred, elegant, meaningful, and transformative. As a contemporary non-denominational wedding officiant, I enjoy working with people of all faiths, preferences, and spiritual paths, especially those who feel spiritual but not necessarily religious. I believe that our hearts choose our partners, and I celebrate marriage equality for all. I offer warm and distinctive ceremonies that support your beliefs, values and traditions. I am sensitive to the fact that many people are not certain of the style of ceremony that will best represent them. I delight in working with couples to assist them in gaining that clarity, so that together we can custom design a ceremony that is a unique reflection of you. I officiate at weddings, commitment ceremonies, civil unions, and the remaking of vows. I also officiate at all of life's transitions, including baby naming and blessing ceremonies. I practice throughout the Hudson Valley of New York, including the Catskill Mountain region, and cover the counties of Dutchess, Ulster, Columbia, Putnam, Westchester, Orange, Albany, and Greene. I am also available to officiate at weddings in the Berkshire Mountains of southwestern Massachusetts, as well as the western portions of Connecticut. Should you be traveling to the Hudson Valley as a destination wedding, I am very comfortable working remotely, and am able to coordinate all of the details of your special day in a way that will allow it to be a stress-free success. I look forward to having you contact me so that we can explore our synergy and the way in which we can complement one another while crafting a ceremony that is uniquely you.
