Arlene was a dream to work with!
We just had our wedding two weeks ago and Arlene did such a fantastic job! We originally were going to try to ask a friend or a relative to be the officiant, but I am sooooo glad we went with Arlene. She's done this so many times and is so professional, and it's truly a relief to know that the person who is up there speaking knows exactly what to do and when to do it. If you are considering having someone who doesn't officiate often, I'd strongly recommend Arlene or her husband as an alternative. There really is so much going on and a lot to be stressed about, so having someone who has done this hundreds of times will make you feel much better! She also wrote the ceremony, and this was an area that was a little tricky because I was raised Catholic but my husband was not raised religious at all. We wanted my parents to be happy and my husband's family to be happy, and I think we struck the perfect balance. Even the most religious of our family members commented on what a beautiful ceremony it was, and how personal it was. I couldn't be happier with how the ceremony went, and Arlene also made sure to send off our marriage certificate for us - which was a huge relief because it would have taken us at least a week or two to send it off, and a lot of things got moved around in the chaos of the wedding day! I would strongly recommend Arlene!!Sent on 11/20/2019

Arlene was amazing and did a great job. She was very flexible and helpful. She was even able to give us access to the beachfront for our intimate wedding and was able to recommend a great photographer. All this on a very tight schedule of about a week and a few days.Sent on 11/03/2020

You should definitly hire Arlene !
Arlene is such a wonderful person to work with, she asked us several questions and took her time to get to know us and she was able to capture and write such beautiful words that represent us. I am really shy and love that she was able to embrace that as well. She also gifted us a manuscript of our vows in beautiful paper. I definitely recommend you hire her, she's so sweet and amazing!Sent on 01/19/2021

Rev. Arlene is so sweet. I'm so glad we hired her to officiate for our wedding. From the very beginning she was always attentive and accomodating to our every wish.

Spiritual, Loving and Peaceful
I was in the midst of wedding planning when I connected with Arlene. She brought me back to the real meaning of this wedding, our marriage ceremony. She helped me re-establish why David and I were getting married, what we valued about our present and our future together and made it easy for me to focus on the most important aspect- US. I was so nervous before the ceremony and it was a relief to hear her begin speaking. It really calmed me down and carried us both through the ceremony. I would highly recommend working with Arlene. On your wedding day, you want someone whose going to bring your ceremony to a truly peaceful space where you can begin this incredible journey. Blessings Arlene and eternal gratitude.Sent on 03/03/2020

She exceeded my expectations!
I can't say enough good things about Arlene! We were very particular about how we wanted our ceremony because we've been to alot of weddings where they drag on and you start to lose interest. This was not the case with Arlene! Our ceremony was so beautifully written and executed. My husband wanted us to write our own vows which I was very nervous about but Arlene helped me every step of the way. She was always available for phone calls and responded to emails quickly. She helped me through alot of the stress of everything! I highly recommend using Arlene!Sent on 03/30/2020

We would highly recommend Rev. Goldman to anyone looking for a qualified, kind, and easy officiant for their wedding. Arlene made sure we had all of the information we needed before he big day and helped us craft a ceremony that was truly our own. Everyone has different ways of expressing themselves, and we really feel that Arlene took the time to get the details right for us. She was a pleasure to work with and she really made our ceremony feel romantic, loving, and just what we wanted.Sent on 11/22/2019

Special Day with Special People
Paul and Arlene were referred to us by my wife's brother as he used them for his wedding as well.
We could not have asked for a better recommendation. They were extremely helpful from day 1. Not only were they very responsive to any questions we had before the wedding but the were very helpful making our ceremony run smooth. We highly recommend them to anyone and we would be happy to speak with anyone to help choose them for their special day.Sent on 05/02/2019

Great-would highly recommend
We decided to use Arlene and Paul based on a recommendation from our venue and from all the wonderful reviews we read. They both did a fantastic job, Arlene wrote the ceremony, and Paul was the officiant. Many of our guests commented on how beautiful it was, and it definitely exceeded our expectations! Everything went smoothly throughout the process and they made it all simple and walked us through step by step. Would highly recommend them to anyone!Sent on 05/30/2019

Arlene Goldman is amazing.
Arlene Goldman is a top 5% rated officiant in the nation and it truly shows. Her ceremony was beautifully written and spoken.Sent on 04/08/2019
Arlene's communication is nothing short of amazing. She made sure to find the correct tone we wanted for our ceremony, constantly ask our input and was quick to answer all of our questions.
We received our ceremony a few weeks before our wedding and it was perfect.
We are so grateful for all your hard work and for really understanding us and delivering what was a beautiful ceremony.

Vow Renewal - 30 Years
We were delighted to share our experience with Rev. Arlene. She is a joy and took pleasure in our happiness and making sure our day was memorable and special. Rev. Arlene obviously took to heart what my husband and I wrote on our questionnaires, and she was well prepared with the remarks she made at the civil ceremony. She incorporated everything we asked for into the service and added her own special touches which we appreciated and enjoyed. Our vow renewal ceremony was short, sweet, memorable, and FUN -- just what we wanted. Rev. Arlene is lovely and highly recommendedSent on 01/09/2019

Rev Arlene Made Our Dream Wedding Come True!
We had an outdoor wedding at the Sundy House and wanted a unique ceremony that would not only highlight our quirky love, but also honor my husband's families very traditional Catholic upbringing. People were flying in from NY and I didn't want them to be uncomfortable with the fact that we didn't choose a church setting. Rev Arlene did not disappoint!! She was so responsive through the entire process and made it very easy for me with my crazy work schedule. She sent me questionnaires about our relationship and families and created a unique and beautiful ceremony that had people raving all night. I received so many compliments from our guests about how moved they were and that they really felt that they were part of our union by getting a little window into who we were as a couple. She is so sweet and professional, was on time (early actually!), and gave us a gorgeous scroll with her speech to keep forever. Highly highly recommend. Thank you so much Arlene! :) - The Buondelmonte'sSent on 05/21/2019
