    Larry is fantastic! My husband and I had a spur of the moment wedding, so we ended up giving Larry a little less than 1 month’s notice. Not only did Larry meet with us immediately, so as to be able to tailor and personalize the ceremony to us, but he also got everything ready in time and performed a beautiful ceremony. Larry was extremely professional and kept the ceremony light, engaging and fun. My guests, particularly my mom and sister, thought Larry was a perfect fit for us. I highly recommend Larry!

    The perfect ceremony!

    Larry officiated our wedding for us on 6/8/19. From the moment we met him, we knew we were in good hands. We instantly felt that he was perfect for us, and it was by far the best we had felt about any vendor. Throughout the stressful process of planning a wedding, I knew I didn't have to worry about our ceremony, and that it would be beautiful. And it was! I told Larry I wanted our ceremony to be "lovely," and that was exactly what he delivered. Larry has a great personality, and knows the perfect balance between serious/and light-hearted, making the ceremony feel personal and again, beautiful. Our guests came up to us all night and called the days following the wedding raving about how special, intimate, and "lovely" our ceremony was. I cannot recommend Larry enough!!

    Great experience

    Larry was great from start to finish. He was very accommodating and allowed us to have the wedding we envisioned. He was very professional and always responded to our emails promptly. On the day of the wedding, Larry arrived early and helped put all the participants at ease and was a calming figure. We would recommend Larry to any couple that is looking for an officiant!

    Comic Relief

    Our ceremony was a perfect representation of us. Simple, straightforward, meaningful and humorous. Larry is laid back and experienced. He talked us through the process easily. He is flexible with meet times. He is responsive and easy to communicate with but not pushy. His wry humor made for a fun ceremony. He added in a special part about our beloved dog that we absolutely loved. Great choice all around!

    My husband and I had attended a wedding two years ago with Larry as the officiant. We enjoyed the ceremony so much so that we agreed to have him officiate our wedding as well. We just got married over the weekend and Larry was amazing. He exceeded our expectations by making our ceremony both sentimental and enjoyable. We would recommend Larry to any couple looking for an individual who will make their ceremony a moment to cherish.

    Words cannot express the amazing job Rev. Adler did for our wedding on 7/29/18. Because of him I got my dream ceremony. I loved my entire wedding but our ceremony was amazing & beautiful. Even now our guest are talking about our ceremony and how much they enjoyed Larry.
    Larry was wonderful to work with, he listen and give me exactly what I wanted. He give me good suggestions and made and changes I wanted. I cannot wait to see the video of our ceremony.

    Larry thank you for give me my dream ceremony!

    My husband and I chose Larry to officiate our wedding and we are oh so glad that we did!! He was wonderful throughout the whole planning process. He was very easy to get in touch with and was very accommodating to our busy schedules when setting up our initial meeting. He provided many choices for unique add-ons to our ceremony to make it unique. He sent over our first draft of our ceremony in a timely manner and was very open to any requests that we had. The day of the wedding, he was wonderful. Our ceremony was fantastic!! Guests are still raving about it. Larry has a great presence and speaking voice. He made us feel very comfortable during a day filled with emotions. He sent in our marriage license so quick and we were able to proceed with the name change process immediately following our honeymoon. Book with Larry!! He was great and will forever hold a special place in our hearts!

    We highly recommend Larry/Bands of Gold as your wedding officiant. He couldn't have been nicer when meeting with my fiance and doing a video chat (out of state) with me to get to know us a bit. When the day came, Larry was early to arrive and helped smooth out last minute details with the reception hall. He made our family and friends comfortable and guided us through a wonderful ceremony.

    We LOVE Larry!! I highly recommend Larry as a wedding officiant. He is kind, warm and put us at ease. He took the time to learn about us and tailored our ceremony to exactly how we wanted it. He had many options for us to make our ceremony personal. During our ceremony people laughed and cried. It was absolutely perfect bc he made it about us. He was willing to travel to our venue. People even asked us after if we were related to him... That's how personable he is. As a bride, he gave me advice and made things extremely simple for me. Larry anticipated our needs and reminded us as it closer to our date of the important things we needed to bring. Most importantly, he made the ceremony memorable and beautiful and I can't thank him enough for creating such a great experience for us!

    Larry Adler was great. He encouraged us to put some of the “us” into our ceremony. And his idea to include a sand ceremony that our child and my husband’s daughter could participate helped make the day special for everyone and we keep a beautiful memory of our blended family on our mantel. The day of our wedding Larry made sure I took a few breathes and was a ken be focused and enjoy the day even when the family was making me crazy!!!! Thank you Larry. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful. It was perfect because it was “us,” jokes, tears and all.

    Larry was excellent from beginning to end.
    We cannot say enough good things about him. From the start he was very easy to communicate and quick to respond. He met with us and discussed the type of ceremony we wanted to have. In our case, we wanted a christian ceremony with bible scriptures & and incorporate the sand ceremony. Larry was quick to send us a personalized drafted ceremony and gave us great input based on his experience. He welcomed our edits, suggestions and comments. On the day of the wedding he was almost an hour early. The ceremony was perfect from beginning to end. One week after my wedding and we are still receiving great feedback from our guests complementing Larry and how well he officiated the ceremony. We highly recommend Larry as he exceeded our expectations.

    Larry was so easy going and accommodating when it came to arranging our vow renewal ceremony. He agreed to perform the same vows we took when we eloped but with his own personal style. My family asked me afterwards how I found him They were really impressed with Larry and thought he was funny. One person even asked me if he was available to perform and tell jokes at her local synagogue.

    We are extremely happy with our decision to use Larry! From the moment we met with him, he was very patient and went over every detail with us. He made the process extremely easy and stress free. He arranged everything with our vendor and organized everything the day of. The ceremony was perfect! He really created the relaxed atmosphere we wanted and put all of our concerns at ease. Our guests really appreciated his sense of humor as well. I highly recommend Larry!!

    Larry was amazing! From the first day we met him to the day of the wedding. Planning how the ceremony would go was simple, and he had special touches that we could add to our ceremony to make it more personal. We chose to go with the rose ceremony. He also was able to add our special filipino tradition we wanted into the ceremony, he even researched it. He was there for our rehearsal dinner to guide us. Our ceremony was beautiful and filled with laughs. We would highly recommend Larry to any couple!

He had some great ideas to include a special touch during our wedding ceremony. Our special touch was a Love Letter and Wine Box Ceremony. He was very responsive, professional, and arrived early to the ceremony site. Our Love Letter and Wine Box Ceremony was beautiful and our guests complimented how nice it was!

    We found him through the knot.com and are very glad to have him as our officiant.
    We are very impressed by his professionalism. He is very responsive to our questions and we usually get an answer within several hours. He is definitely very experienced and well prepared for every occasion, from speeches to customized ceremonies. He knows exactly how to handle the crowd and knows how much time is needed. Everything is within schedule and meets our expectation.

    Larry also makes himself very flexible to our need in terms of the ceremony. We were able to make multiple changes to the speech and he always tries his best to accommodate our needs, including the part that we requested him to perform a small portion of the speech in Chinese.

    At the end of the day, another happy couple was married on 10/23/16 and we are very satisfied with the service provided by Larry.
