    Rabbi Richard Winer was great

    Rabbi Winer officiated our wedding and did a great job. We were an interfaith couple and understood the importance of each faith to be apart of the ceremony.

    Beautiful ceremony

    Rabbi Winer was great to work with from the start and put together an absolutely beautiful ceremony. After we booked our venue in Waitsfield, VT - we quickly realized that it was the longest day of the year.. on a Saturday.. which was going to make it difficult to find a rabbi to marry us. From the first time speaking with Rabbi Winer he put our minds at ease that he was willing to travel, accepting of our interfaith marriage, and would perform the ceremony as long as we signed our Ketubah after sun down. We wanted religion in our ceremony and it was so great that Rabbi Winer was open and accepting of us.

    During our meetings and discussions before the wedding he really took the time to get to know us. This showed in the ceremony and added so much warmth. He recommended the circling of the groom, the 7 blessings, and blending of the wines as a symbol of our blended families. The ceremony was absolutely wonderful thanks to Rabbi Winer and his warm outgoing style. We could not be more grateful.

    Truly remarkable man

    Rabbi Winer was an enormous reason our wedding was so special. He is a remarkable man and because we got to know each other before the ceremony everything was personalized and truly special. If anyone is looking for a Rabbi I would never go to anyone except Rabbi Winer. My wife and I now consider him a lifelong friend and we look forward to seeing him again. I can't say enough great things about this man. Rabbi Winer drove approximately 12 hours round trip to perform this wedding

    Rabbi Winer is the BEST

    Rabbi Winer was absolutely amazing! We booked him pretty early on (about a year out), and had meetings with him leading up to the wedding (I think we had between 5-7 meetings total). I was nervous for the first meeting...but as soon as we met him, we knew we had made the right decision. Rabbi Winer is so warm and kind, he made us feel right at home! Over the course of our meetings, Rabbi Winer asked us questions and had us do little "homework" assignments so that he could get to know us and have a better understanding of our relationship. He made our ceremony so special and personal, incorporating personal notes and things he learned about us throughout our time together. Additionally, regarding the religious aspects of the ceremony…I am Jewish and my husband is Catholic. We had a Jewish ceremony but we wanted to make sure the guests that have never been to a Jewish wedding understood what was happening. Rabbi Winer eloquently explained each portion of the ceremony and made everyone feel comfortable. Many of our guests told us it was one of the best ceremonies they have ever attended! If you are looking to have a really special ceremony, you NEED to hire Rabbi Winer.

    Rabbi Winer - Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know us and making our ceremony so special. You are amazing! Stay in touch!

    Rabbi Winer is the best!

    Rabbi Winer is the best! He made our wedding experience what it was and I can't begin to count the number of compliments we had on our ceremony!

    Rabbi Winer not only took the time to get to know Erin and I with several meetings at his home office, but you could also tell that he genuinely cares about the people he works with. I can't give him enough 5 stars and I would highly recommend him to anyone that is looking for his services!

    Rabbi Winer was fantastic the entire process. From our first introductions over the phone, it was clear Rabbi Winer was there to help and guide us through the process, to have a successful marriage as well as wedding ceremony. The meetings were all necessary and he broke the process down for us. He had no issue doing our interfaith marriage and really helped us decide what pieces we wanted for our wedding, and what things we could leave out. He explained everything and was already friendly. During the service/ceremony, a younger one was having some fun/being distracting and Rabbi Winer played it off great. He had a couple jokes during the ceremony that were PERFECT. He can really read a room. I cannot say enough positive things about Rabbi Winer, or his wife, or his dog! All were hits at my wedding and I'm sure they will be at yours too!

    Rabbi Winer is fantastic! We are so grateful that he and his wife were part of our special day and are now in our lives forever. He is kind compassionate and able to easily and quickly embrace total strangers as through he has been part of your family from the start. Our ketubah, ceremony, and overall experience was off the charts. Our Jewish and non Jewish family and guests raved about the beautiful and seamless integration of religions and cultures. Guests were so impressed with the attention to detail and explanations for aspects of the ceremony. Thank you Rabbi and Rabbietzen Winer for being part of our lives. We can’t wait to have you over for a briss or baby naming!

    Rabbi Winer made our wedding beyond special. From start to finish, we felt loved and cared for by him. We are an interfaith couple, and the Rabbi could not have been more accommodating to our wants and needs. He customized the ceremony to really make it about us, and we are thrilled with how it turned out. It was absolutely beautiful. Thank you Rabbi for making our day wonderful.

    Rabbi Winer officiated our ceremony over Memorial Day weekend and we couldn't have asked for a better rabbi. We met with him a few times before the wedding so we could get to know him and vice versa. He is very personable, funny and made us feel like we have known him for years. He made our ceremony very meaningful and personal, while also keeping it light and fun. His wife Laurie sang the blessings and it was absolutely beautiful. Thank you Rabbi Winer for helping us make some great memories that we can talk about for years to come! -Amethyst and Zev

    Ravbbi Winer did an amazing job performing our wedding. From the moment we met him right through the actual ceremony we felt very welcomed and at ease with him. Ravbbi Winer made our wedding day very personal and meaningful. We really enjoyed our entire experience of planning and the actual wedding from start to finish. A wonderful, meaningful, and memorable experience.

    I cannot speak highly enough of Rabbi Winer. He officiated our interfaith wedding and worked with us to create a beautiful, one-of-a-kind, custom ceremony rooted in traditions and custom. He also had great ideas on how to incorporate my 5-year old son into the day, something that was very important to me. We also enjoyed having his wife, Lori, sing our blessings with her beautiful voice. It was such a nice touch. After the wedding and reflecting on the day, my husband and I agreed that Rabbi Winer and the ceremony were the best parts of the day. We cannot thank him enough for his guidance and kindness- we truly feel that we have made a lifelong connection.

    Rabbi Winer was excellent. We met with him several times through the year and he really was able to add personal touches to our ceremony. For an interrace/interfaith wedding we got so many compliments on how lovely the ceremony was and that it was just right for us.

    My husband and I just got married on 10/8/17 with Rabbi Richard! He was amazing through out the entire process and really got to know us as a couple.

    We had such an incredible experience working with Rabbi Winer. He really took the time to get to know US as a couple and make our ceremony personalized. We are an interfaith couple and the Rabbi let both of our cultures shine through in the ceremony. He was very flexible to the point of letting us break TWO glasses since I (the bride) really wanted to partake in this experience too! haha The other reviews about Ricks wife also held true and she did a nice job chanting the Hebrew blessings.

    Rabbi Winer did a great job the day of the wedding. We received many compliments about how beautiful the ceremony was. He was very accommodating to any and all requests that we had, wether be it scheduling changes, or coming to the rehearsal so that we could get a little bit more input and assistance from him the day before the wedding. He had plenty of helpful suggestions and was very easy to work with.

    From our first meeting it was clear Rabbi Winer was going to knock it out of the park with helping up plan and execute the various moving parts during our wedding. Everything from helping us plan our Ketubah ceremony to the main wedding ceremony was so carefully crafted to our needs and executed with such love and professionalism it truly enabled a stress free experience.

    Rabbi Winer was amazingly patient, accommodating, responsive and supportive throughout our entire wedding ceremony planning process. He went above and beyond to meet with us until we had crafted the perfect interfaith ceremony to honor both of our families. He took the time to explain to us all of the Jewish wedding traditions, and also encouraged us to add other elements to make our ceremony unique to fit our personalities. He was always very quick to respond to emails. He was extremely prepared when it came time for the wedding and we are so thankful to have found Rabbi Winer and to have had him be a part of our big day! Could not recommend more highly.
