Making it Special
We decided to tie the knot , after being together a long time. We wanted to keep it simple , small but meaningful. I spoke to Sheila after interviewing other officiants and I was immediately struck by her quick understanding of what we wanted. We also had a meeting where she learned more about us as a couple . On the day of, she led a beautiful ceremony , which touched on all the things that were important to us.Sent on 02/04/2021

Special & Expeditious
There's really not enough I can say about Rev. Sheila. My fiancee and I had been trying to get married for a while but COVID had made things quite difficult and pushed dates very far back in our state. Across the river in NJ was Sheila, who was reffered to me by the marriage license registrar of the town. Sheila was so sweet and helpful and after getting to know us briefly, tried her very best to get us married right away. Never have I met someone with so much conviction towards their job and someone so devoted to seeing love happen. She gave us a tremendously lovely wedding and I cannot thank her enough for it. Rev. Sheila made us aware of the magic in our love and truly helped us feel connected during the experience. I would recommend her to anyone looking to get married.Sent on 07/31/2020

Amazing ceremony by Sheila! Everyone loved it!
We got married a little over a week ago and we are so happy that we chose Sheila to officiate our wedding. She was easy to work with before the ceremony and she was really interested in learning more about our love story. During the ceremony she mentioned everything that we've told her about how we met and what we love about each other. Also, we were running late to the ceremony and she was very accommodating with that. We highly recommend her to other wedding couples!Sent on 06/01/2020

Intimate. Memorable. Magical.
Sheila was a dream come true. We had a very intimate ceremony at our condo in Edgewater and she made it so special. She asked us questions separately before the ceremony, which allowed her to connect with us and our story, and play it back during the ceremony. Truly magical and absolutely perfect.Sent on 03/04/2020

The Ceremony Day!
Sheila was awesome, everything about our experience was great! I first spoke with Sheila before we met. At first I reached out to get information; nevertheless, wanted to make sure my fiancé(now wife) and I still wanted to take it to the next level(Marriage). When we were ready I reach out to Sheila and ask could she be our officiant. She was delighted to help. So Sheila and I arranged a meeting at her home to have a conversation and get to know each other a little more. By the end, she felt more like a friend than a vendor. She truly got to know me as a individual and made our ceremony incredibly personal and special. I really cannot say enough good things about Sheila. She was absolutely a joy! Sheila married my wife and I June 17, 2020.Sent on 06/20/2020

A Super Wonderful and Amazing Officiant
Sheila is great and provided more than we expected. We had a small ceremony with just two other witnesses and even they were amazed by her charisma, caring and professionalIsm. Our ceremony was performed at her house because she’s awesome enough to do that. Her whole vibe and attitude is perfect and I can see why she does this. She also helped us with the marriage license and made the whole process easy. Couldn’t have asked for a better officiant. I highly recommend Sheila as well as my wife and our witnesses. Don’t miss out on having a great experience with Sheila.Sent on 06/22/2020

Sheila help us to make a dream marriage ceremony come to true from the beginning to the end. After the first time we talked, she started to work and helped all the way she can to prepare for our ceremony. It adds a lot of value especially at this difficult moment to have Sheila as she has the best knowledge about how to step by step to complete a successful marriage ceremony and certificate registration.Sent on 02/13/2021
Sheila is also a considerate, positive and joyful person. She accommodated us to have our ceremony at her house due to the COVID. Although the ceremony is short, her speech made us aware of the magic in our love and truly helped us feel connected during the experience. Tears and happiness fully reflected in both of our hearts.
I can’t thank more for Sheila to give us this tremendous lovely wedding, and strongly recommend Sheila to anyone who is looking for an amazing officiate to facilitate a wonderful marriage ceremony!

I cannot recommend Dr. Gross enough! She went above and beyond for my fiancé and I as we had a unique situation. She was personable and very caring. If you’re looking for an officiant that cares about and appreciates the love between you and your partner as much as you do, and will conduct a meaningful wedding ceremony, I highly recommend Dr. Gross. Thank you for everything!Sent on 01/12/2021

It was just wonderful, even with the fact it was online, Shiela made it extra intimate event for us. This will be cherished for lifetime.
Never thought online wedding could be this intimate. All thanks to Sheila! She has made our wedding a memorable one. She was so much into the wedding whole time, we barely felt that she was not physically there but online. She has made all our guests who joined online, super warm within few seconds and all of them really enjoyed watching the whole ceremony online. It was just amazing and can’t thank Sheila enough.Sent on 01/16/2021

Personal wedding ceremony
My fiance and I were recently married during the pandemic. Sheila helped us understand the process to get a license in our hometown. Without her guidance, we may have still been waiting to get our license! She was extremely responsive and went above and beyond to ask us questions and get to know us as a couple. She made the ceremony for us truly special and personal. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant! We are already set on re hiring her for our vow renewal :)Sent on 10/04/2020

A Ceremony Unlike Any Other
From the moment my now husband and I met Shelia, we knew that she was not the average wedding officiant. She took so much time getting to know us as people, as a couple, and even learned about our families. She was so dedicated to learning all she could about us in order to create a personal and special ceremony. And that she did. I really feel like our ceremony set our wedding apart from any wedding that I have ever been to. Shelia not only celebrated the love of my husband and I, but included our guests and families in the ceremony, celebrating the love they have for us and the love they showed by being there. It was so special, and so many of my guests mentioned to me how much they enjoyed the ceremony. Sheila is a truly talented officiant, and a truly loving person with a beautiful spirit. I feel very lucky to have found her and to have had her officiate my wedding.Sent on 12/02/2020

Sheila is an amazing officiant. We found her on wedding wire when we found out we had lost the church we originally planned on having our ceremony. The venue let us have the ceremony there but we needed to find an officiant. When we first spoke to Sheila on the phone we instantly knew we wanted to book her. We had to do zoom meeting so she could get to know us as a couple. This was perfect because she truly got to know us well and every aspect of her ceremony was tailored to us as a couple. She really personalized everything and included all our wedding guests in the ceremony. We got so many compliments on our ceremony and many people who came up to us and said she really captured us and our love.Sent on 11/16/2020

Made our wedding day more perfect. Very attentive and had such beautiful words to say. This was hard enough to do during covid but Sheila made all of that go away. It was just us and that was all that mattered and that’s how she made us feel. Being a same sex couple she made us feel very comfortable. It was an amazing day ! Thank you Sheila so much for all you did. You truly made this a special day for us love always Marzia and Ana

We first reached out to Sheila in hopes of finding an officiant that could do an interfaith Hindu and Orthodox Christian ceremony - she was so confident in this area and helpful in fleshing out our vision that we booked her immediately. She took the time right away to get to know us and our love story and crafted a ceremony on the spot. When we had to cancel our larger wedding in favor of a strictly virtual one (due to covid), she worked with us to make sure it would still be intimate and special. No one in our families had ever participated in an online-only wedding and were highly skeptical, but we are still receiving feedback (from those who livestreamed it) that the ceremony was one of the most beautiful and personal ones they have ever “been” to. Not only did the ceremony focus us with personal stories, but she also masterfully included our parents and siblings, which was so important considering they couldn’t physically be there. We can’t recommend Sheila enough; she never hesitated to hop on a call when needed, helped us roll with the punches (and there were many punches), and made us feel confident throughout the whole process. Thanks Sheila!Sent on 12/13/2020

Shiela The Wonder Woman
Shiela is honestly amazing. Shiela went above and beyond to help with my marriage plans. All of the plans changed last minute, due to my mistake, and Sheila found a way to come in and save the day. Sheila took took the extra mile to wed me and my love and I cannot thank her enough. Shiela is very knowledgeable in her craft and she shows a lot of love in what she does. Honestly if I can give Shiela 6 stars I would! Again, thank you so much Shiela for all that you did!Sent on 10/20/2020

Heartfelt Gratitude to Sheila
I was very frustrated to find an officiant and open city clerk office during the pandemic. I found Sheila online and reached out to her, and she immediately replied! Sheila really helped everything go so well. She is incredibly generous to have gone out of her way to help us with the marriage process, even when the city clerk was normally closed. Although small, our ceremony was so beautiful and spiritual, and we feel truly blessed to have met Sheila.Sent on 06/22/2020

Sweetest covid wedding ceremony
Sheila is the best! I was supposed to get married to my fiancé in March but it was canceled due to COVID. We finally decided that we didn’t want to hold off any longer and looked for an officiant in June. From the first phone call I had with Sheila, I could tell she was highly experienced, well-rounded and knowledgeable about different cultures. She offered to do the ceremony at my home or at hers! We decided to go to her in Edgewater with just our immediate families, and she performed the ceremony right outside of her condo in a little courtyard. It was sweet and intimate. It’s a pretty courtyard too so we got some great photos. She was very well spoken and though she did not get a chance to know us very well before the ceremony, she found her own way to make it personal for us. Highly recommend her!Sent on 07/06/2020

Not only an officiant, Your best Friend
My wife and I were lucky to have Sheila being our wedding ceremony officiant. She is super kind, flexible, and sweet. Shelia spent a lot of time with us at the preparation of wedding ceremony. During this pandemic time, she carefully listened to what we need and considered possible situations and difficulties we may suffer. And she helped us go through everything thoroughly. We were glad to have her.Sent on 07/20/2020
