We were totally thrilled and pleased with Rev. Robin Zucker. It was a pleasure to meet ahead of time with her and talk about our relationship. She captured the important aspects of Mike and me in our ceremony and made the entire event even more personal. Everyone at the ceremony was pleased with the proceedings. I especially liked that Rev. Zucker gave us a booklet that we were able to go through and pick which words we were interested in having spoken. That made the event much more personal. She also provided us with names of musicians and readings for us to choose from. Overall, we couldn't have been happier with the ease, the relaxed nature and the beautiful words at our ceremony. We will recommend her highly to anyone who would need her services.
I could not imagine a more perfect officiant. Many of our wedding guests told my husband and me that our wedding ceremony was the most meaningful, personal, and all out best they have ever attended. Among Robin's important strengths, was her ability to weave together our religious views (including mine being agnostic/spiritual) and those of our parents. Further, she has experience in being a part of a blended family, and was able to guide us on how to include my teenage stepsons in the ceremony. Finally, it was evident that she can efficiently observe character traits, preferences, and the bond of a couple and the individuals within that couple. When she officiated, it was as if she had known us for years, despite us having planned the ceremony with her in three weeks or less time. She was incredibly flexible with us despite our short time table and disorganized nature. We highly recommend her. Thanks Robin!
Robin was very friendly and helpful. We're so glad we decided to use her for our special day. She's an absolute sweetheart!
Robin was amazing on our wonderful wedding day. More importantly, we worked together in the planning of the wedding service to make the ceremony a meaningful and unique reflection of who we are and what our wedding meant to us, our family, and our community of friends. From interviews so she could truly learn about our feelings, to interweaving these thoughts into elegant words and radiating joy from the pulpit, Robin was so much more than we could ever explain.
Robin played a huge role in making our ceremony incredibly special. My husband and I come from different religious backgrounds and Robin was able to put together the most beautiful and meaningful ceremony that seemlessly intertwined the spiritual aspect of our lives. She took the things that were most important to us and really created something truly special. We also participated in the counseling sessions offered prior to our wedding and were so impressed with what we learned about each other and us as a couple. She enabled us to have very open discussions about important aspects of life shared together as one. Robin is a truly open minded and accepting person who has left us with wonderful memories of our union.
We were so happy to have Rev. Robin Zucker as the officiant for our wedding! She was easy to work with, professional, and extremely helpful both before the ceremony and on the day of. We met with her several times before the wedding and she helped us put together a ceremony that really captured us as a couple and that included our community of family and friends. It was truly a perfect day for us and wouldn’t have been possible without Rev. Robin’s skillfulness and support. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant!
Rev. Robin was very personable and took the time to get to know us prior to the wedding. She made the service personal, relating her comments to us and our guests. Her professionalism made the service flow smoothly even though we did not have a rehearsal. She was flexible and great at handling small glitches that occurred. Our guests all commented on the moving ceremony she performed. We highly recommend Rev. Robin Zucker.
We contacted Rev. Robin Zucker and on short notice she helped us organize our very small, simple, yet special wedding ceremony. With her help we were able to secure a very nice location that was very accessible and affordable. The entire process was organized in a short period of time, and with maximal ease. Robin had excellent suggestions for our vows and for elements of the ceremony. She took the time to get to know us, and help us figure out what was important for the event. When last minute adjustments to the venue and the time were needed, Robin was very flexible and helpful. We have kept in touch with her even though we have moved away from Pittsburgh. We had a great wedding with her help and we highly recommend her.
Rev. Robin Zucker was truly amazing. She takes time to meet with you, gets to know you and customizes your wedding ceremony around what you tell her you would like involved and what she gets from her meetings with you. She made us feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the entire ceremony and truly made it one to remember! I would highly recommend her, her services were inspirational and beautiful!
My husband and I enjoyed working with Rev. Robin Zucker to create our wedding ceremony and were incredibly happy with the result. The ceremony was beautiful and exactly what we were looking for. We received many positive comments about the ceremony from our guests.
Meeting with Robin over these past few months in anticipation of her marrying us was such a wonderful experience. I was raised Catholic but am not practicing and consider myself spiritual, but not really Catholic anymore (yet some of those traditions were really a part of my upbringing, and my family is still very true to the Catholic faith); my now husband was raised Methodist and was very active in his church community growing up. Finding someone to organically fuse these traditions into one very meaningful marriage ceremony is no easy task. Robin did just that, and it was really such a wonderful experience. We both participated in a marriage preparation course with her where we met about 4 times and had some relationship building discussions. My husband and I agreed that this was a great experience, not just for us and our relationship, but to really get to know the person that would eventually marry us (because we don't belong to a church). I received so many lovely comments from wedding guests that remarked how MEANINGFUL the ceremony was. I attribute that fully and completely to Robin and our meetings leading up to the big day.
Having Robin as an officiant made our wedding ceremony so special. She took the time to get to know us at our initial consultation and got to know us better while we completed the PREPARE pre-marriage counselling. Having gotten to know us, and working with us on picking readings and vows for our ceremony, she put together a truly beautiful ceremony. There was not a dry eye in the house, but there was also laughter and joy. We have had so much feedback about how personal and unique our ceremony was.
The PREPARE program is optional, but well worth it. My fiance and I were highly compatible on the testing, but it just gave us the time and motivation to think about area's where we may be less compatible and have a plan on how to deal with those, before they become a problem. It also was a nice environment to reflect on all the wonderful things that we have in our relationship. Completing this program brought us closer together and gave us a chance to spend some time reflecting on the marriage as opposed to focusing on planning a wedding.
I would strongly recommend using Robin for your marriage ceremony, particularly for interfaith or non religious couples.
We just loved Rev. Zucker. She is so warm and caring -- the perfect person to marry us. She was not pushy at all with the religious aspect. We did not want "God" mentioned in our ceremony and she was very understanding of that. We had a few sessions of pre-martial counseling with her before our big day, and those sessions were very helpful. She was excellent during the rehearsal -- making sure everyone knew what they should be doing. She was even better during our wedding. A few people commented that she was one of the best public speakers they had ever heard.
Robin was fantastic! I heard from many of my guests that she was one of the best public speakers they had ever heard.
Our ceremony was beautiful and extremely personal, there was not a dry eye.
My husband and I decided a week before our vacation to Boston that we would like to get married while we were there. I did a little research on the internet and found Rev. Robin Zucker's website. A bit skeptical, but really wanting to pull this off....I contacted her.
She was prompt in a response and so professional in every aspect. We made arrangements to meet once we were in the Boston area. She was so flexible with us and worked around our request. We decided on a perfect location for us in Columbus Park right on the harbor at twilight. It was absolutely perfect. Her ceremony was beautifully written for the two of us. Robin joined us afterwards to celebrate at a quaint little restaurant. We were absolutely thrilled with her service and feel that we have made a great friend as well.
I highly recommend Robin Zucker to anyone looking for a personal, unique and meaningful ceremony. Robin spent the time to truly get to know us and created such a special ceremony that truly made the wedding an unforgettable event. So many of our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was and how it captured the essence of us as a couple. Robin incorporated many of the personal stories we shared during our meetings with her, and even referenced our two cats during the ceremony which we absolutely loved!
In additional to doing a wonderful job with the ceremony, Robin was really great to work with during the planning process. We both thought the Prepare program was a really worthwhile experience, and only helped to strengthen our commitment to each other.
Robin was an outstanding officiant. We were lucky enough to spend time with her before our wedding with the prepare program. We really feel the prepare program helped us as a couple to get ready for marriage. We have had numerous guests who have since told us our wedding was the most personal they had ever been to. We would throughly recommend Robin as an officiant.
The planning aspect was great. We met with her and right away we knew we wanted her to do our wedding. She spent a great amount of time getting to know us (and worked all of the details into our actual ceremony). The PREPARE program was great and with it, we got to see what aspects of our relationship we need to work on and Robin gave us some great tools to work on them throughout our lives. It was always a very comforting and inviting atmosphere and we felt so comfortable sharing with here. It was as if we'd known her for years.
The ceremony itself was fabulous. I can't tell you how many compliments we got on how touching and personal the it was. We didn't want a religious ceremony and she made a beautiful, tailor-fit ceremony for us that I'll always remember. Robin was such a calming presence at such an anxious/exciting moment in our lives. I feel so lucky that she was the one to marry us. It was an absolutely beautiful ceremony and I really don't think we could have asked for anything more perfect for the whole experience.
Robin met with us a total of three times to plan our wedding service. But it was more than just the usual "what do you want to say/who wants to walk when & where" kind of planning sessions -- it was a deep-dive into who were were as individuals and as a couple - how we related to each other and to our respective families, what trials we encountered as a couple so far, and how best to manage future issues given our styles of communication, etc. What resulted was a real and powerful ceremony celebrating our lives and our couplehood - it was truly transformative. Our friends and family have all commented that it was one of the most moving services they'd ever experienced. We would recommend Robin to anyone looking for that kind of sensitivity to detail, for excellent planning leading up to the day, and for crisp execution of the ceremony on the day of. She's great!
My husband and I were blown away by Robin's genuine care and attentiveness. With so many costs associated with the wedding, it was refreshing to work with Robin and know that we were investing in our marriage and not just a one day event.
We cannot recommend Robin enough to any couple of any religious affiliation or spiritual belief to officiate your wedding or other important life moment. Robin's attention to our personalities and our desires for our wedding ceremony went beyond our expectations. Guests of all ages sought us out after the wedding to share how uniquely personalized and special our ceremony was. We highly recommend Robin's PREPARE program where you meet with her two times for pre-wedding counseling. Her warm attentive nature made us feel right at ease and she really took the time to get to us as a couple and as individuals. All of this attention was reflected in her words and nature on the day of our wedding. If that isn't enough, Robin was asked to officiate my niece's non-denominational blessing two months after our wedding because of how impressed my family was with her personality and style.
Robin has a unique and special talent for honoring all traditions and beliefs in a way that is seamless and full of grace. My husband and I come from different cultural backgrounds, and with Robin�s expert advice we were able to create a ceremony that celebrated who we are together in a complex and meaningful way � one that felt special to us and to both of our families and friends. Our sessions with her leading up to the big day were always relaxed and comfortable, and she is definitely someone you can rely on. We would highly recommend her!
Rev. Zucker performed our wedding ceremony in August of 2009. She put a lot of personal attention and time into preparing our ceremony. This included several meetings before the ceremony, in which she spent a significant amount of time getting to know us. Looking back at our experience, the Prepare program she used during those meetings helped us to discuss and reflect upon our relationship in new ways. It truly helped us to strengthen our relationship by talking about expectations for marriage. Rev. Zucker was a very knowledgeable and insightful guide throughout the whole process.
Rev. Zucker incorporated what she learned about us during our meetings into a very personalized service. Friends and family thought that we had known her for years. Her positive attitude and genuine demeanor throughout lead to a beautiful ceremony we will never forget.
If we could have created the 'ideal' officiant, Robin would be it. She is the perfect combination of warmth, grace, humor, and reverence for the union of marriage. We immediately felt comfortable with her, much like a close friend that one has known for years. She was intentional in getting to know us and hearing about our families so that she could help us create a wedding that was a reflection of who we are. She assisted us with details like choosing words for our vows, and also offered suggestions of additions to the ceremony that were in perfect harmony with the tone we wanted to create. Her personalized attention helped us create the best celebration of our lives.
