Feel free to email me at email@example.com Welcome! I am an ordained, licensed interfaith minister who goes beyond traditional limits to help you create the most unique, loving, and personal wedding you have ever wanted or dreamed of.

You will be amazed and delighted by how creative you can be on this, your special day. I will work and be with you with great care and joy. I feel that the best way to know if you and your officiant are a good match is to talk in person. Rather than give you an abundance of information that you don't need or want, I will happily share my life, history, education, experience, philosophy or anything else you want to know (except my weight--yes, I will reveal my age) if you ask. What you should know about me is that I have a big warm heart, infinite creativity, and I care very much about helping you to have the most joyous and magical ceremony you can imagine. I am thoroughly capable and professional and will listen to your wishes. I can create any type of ceremony that you want, and include any spirituality, heritage, or aspect you wish to express. I am exceptionally intuitive, and I can offer many suggestions that might appeal or inspire you. My vision is expansive and all-inclusive. I see, listen, and care. I serve all people--all faiths, traditions, orientations. I have always seen what unites us at the core, rather than what separates us. What is important is the love between you, and the people you are choosing to include in your day. Every couple has their own essence, and expressing this in their ceremony is an artistic and loving endeavor. I would be honored to be your partner in creating your ceremony for your special day.

Weddings by Yael
19 Reviews | Norwalk, CT
Hello! My name is Yael Maxwell and I am a registered non-denominational officiant, licensed through the Universal Life Church and the State and City of New York, available to help create the wedding ceremony of your dreams in and around NY and CT. You have already done the hardest part...finding each other! In getting to know you as a couple, I will work with you to create a personalized ceremony full of the traditions and words you want to include and nothing that turns you off. Nothing would please me more but to have your guests walk away from the ceremony thinking they learned more about you and your relationship and to have you walk away confident in building a marriage on the foundation of the words spoken at your wedding. As such, I will meet with you in person (or on Skype if that is more convenient) to discuss the particulars of your wedding and ask you to tell your story to me so that I can learn what is most important to you. I'm a journalist by training, so I love treating the ceremony like a profile of your relationship. Of course I will be available by phone and email for any questions you may have leading up to the big day. I'm interested in all weddings big and small, formal and intimate, indoor and outdoor, and I wholeheartedly support marriage equality. Commonly asked questions: Are you willing to incorporate any religious traditions into our ceremony? Most definitely. I am Jewish, but not a rabbi, so I know more about Jewish wedding traditions than other religious traditions and would be happy to help you explain and include some of them in your ceremony. I would also be open to including traditions from other religions and backgrounds as well. Do you have a set script you follow at each wedding you perform? While I'm more than happy to provide a template and suggestions of how to fill it, I will take the time to craft every element of your ceremony so that it incorporates everything you want, and nothing you don't. What do you charge? My fee is dependent upon the timing of the reservation, wedding date, travel time (see below), and how many meetings we have, but I am happy to discuss this with you directly. I require 50% of the total fee to be paid upon reservation, and this is nonrefundable. The second half is due before the start of the ceremony ceremony. I also offer referral bonuses. Do you require premarital counseling? While I don't require it, and am not qualified to do so myself, I firmly believe that premarital counseling is a great foundation to get yourselves started on. How long are your ceremonies? This depends on the number of readings, traditions, length of vows, but somewhere between 10-30 minutes typically. Do you allow couples to write their own vows? Definitely! Nothing personalizes a wedding more than this and I'm happy to help you as you craft this vital part of your ceremony. What is your attire for the ceremony? I don't have a strict wedding outfit, but I generally stick to a navy or black dress. I would be happy to talk with you to see what you prefer. How far will you travel to my ceremony? I typically perform most weddings in NYC and Fairfield County, CT, but my fee varies depending on how long it will take me to get to your venue. For NYC weddings, there is no additional charge for any venue within a 30-minute subway ride from Grand Central Terminal ($35 travel fee for 30-39 minutes, $50 for 40-49 minutes, and $75 for 50-59 minutes). For CT weddings, there is no additional charge for any venue within 20 miles of Zip Code 06851 (Norwalk) ($35 travel fee for mile 21-34, $50 for mile 35-49, $75 for mile 50-74, and $125 for mile 75-100). If your venue is not located within an hour of GCT or 100 miles of Norwalk, CT, I'm still willing to work with you, so please contact me to discuss. Do you have a Facebook page? I do! Please visit: https://www.facebook.com/weddingsbyyael How can we get in contact with you? Please message me through Wedding Wire, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 917-791-1017.
