10/10 would recommend!!
Rev. Deborah was so easy to work with, so kind, caring, full of energy, and professional. She is quick to respond, and allowed us to personalize our entire experience! She was respectful of all of our decisions and was very helpful when it came to things I didn't know about. I also loved how she performed the ceremony because I didn't realize how much she could liven up the ceremony just with how she read the ceremony. She really helped us pull off a terrific ceremony. I recommend her to anyone who needs good a great officiant. You get what you pay for!Sent on 03/12/2021

Deborah Radiates A Beautiful, Spiritual Light
Deborah has a gift for connection. We really felt it in our work with her. In the preparation for our ceremony, she helped us to personalize it and make it feel more special. In one part, she asked us to say things we like about each other. It felt so good to hear her reflect these attributes back to us during her opening words in the ceremony.Sent on 02/02/2021
She created a safe space for us during the ceremony. She helped me (the bride) to feel completely comfortable and present. I didn’t expect to be so nervous on our wedding day! I found myself getting distracted with the computer trying to see what was going on as our wedding was online on Zoom! Deborah knew right away and told me and Alexander (my husband) to look at each other and hold hands. She spoke eloquently and soothingly, welcoming a space of love. She had an amazing command of the ceremony itself. It changed everything for me.
We feel that Deborah genuinely cares and wants two people to have a beautiful ceremony together and a beautiful life together as well! We absolutely love Deborah and highly recommend her!

Rev. Deb is a blessing!
Rev. Deb is amazing!!!! Even months after our wedding, we continue to receive compliments along the lines of, "that was the most beautiful wedding ceremony ever!" ... and it is thanks to Deborah who helped us bring our ceremony vision to life!
For my husband and me, the ceremony part of our wedding was always our main priority. We wanted to curate something that was both meaningful and unique, and a reflection of who we are as individuals and of course as a couple (our values, interests, beliefs, etc.). We wanted a ceremony that incorporated elements from various spiritual traditions while also honoring our Jewish roots. Rev. Deb helped us create exactly that! She was super organized and sent over so many great suggestions (everything from quotes, poems, rituals, etc.). She lovingly guided and supported us through the often overwhelming process of customizing a ceremony. She helped us with both the content and structure of our ceremony so that it was cohesive and flowed nicely instead of being disjointed and fragmented. She even read our vows to one another in advance and offered feedback, which was extremely helpful. She collaborated and ultimately co-officiated with a rabbi to ensure that all the pieces of our dream ceremony were in place.
Rev. Deb is kind, compassionate, patient, punctual, a great communicator, and has the warmest energy. Her presence and heartfelt delivery of our ceremony was perfect and made the whole day and experience so, so special, something we will cherish in our hearts forever! We are so grateful for Rev. Deb and we HIGHLY recommend her!Sent on 12/14/2020

Deborah MORE than exceeded our expectations!! She was extremely easy to communicate with. With us traveling to New York from Alabama for the wedding, all of our wedding plans had to be made via email and she was very prompt with all responses and went above and beyond to help us decide how to make our wedding day as special as we could ever hope for. We couldn't have asked for a better officiant!!!Sent on 07/07/2012

Customized and personalized ceremony!
We loved working with Deb - she co-officiated our ceremony with our best friend and worked with us every step of the way. Some of our family and friends said it was the best ceremony they’ve ever seen!Sent on 10/14/2020

Deborah made our special day perfect!
Deborah was flexible, which was especially important during COVID wedding planning craziness; she was a true professional with such a fun, comfort about her that put us at ease right away. She was helpful with vow writing, and ultimately delivered us the best wedding ceremony we could have dreamed of. We Highly recommend Deborah to any couple who may feel a bit uncertain about what kind of ceremony they want; she will help you figure it out and will cater to your preferences to make everyone feel comfortable. All our guests from different Christian/Catholic and Jewish faiths loved her!Sent on 10/06/2020

Reverend Deb created a beautiful ceremony for our intimate solstice wedding. She had several recommendations on beautiful and unique elements to incorporate into our ceremony. She was very communicative and even reviewed our personal vows. I couldn’t recommend her more!Sent on 12/27/2019

Being high with love in the Colorado Mountains
Deborah officiated at out daughters wedding. She took quite a bit of time talking to Dina and Eric and learned about their lives and values. The service they created together was truly uniquely special. Deborah’s heartfelt delivery of the service made the wedding a loving experience for everyone.Sent on 12/24/2019

Warm and Happy!
Working with Deb on our wedding was such an easy process during a time of so much stress planning a wedding! The end result was a unique and personal ceremony that we created in collaboration with her. Every word spoken felt significant and heartfelt. Deb is so kind and genuine and that came through every second that we spent with her leading up to and during our wedding weekend. Thank you Deb so much!!!!! XOSent on 12/25/2019

Highly Recommend! :)
Deborah was nothing short of fabulous, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant on their wedding day! She has such a calming energy and presence, which I desperately needed for my wedding day, and the process of planning our ceremony was easy and flawless. I felt she truly cared about my fiancé and I as a couple and shared our story with our family and friends in the perfect way, which was most important to me. She was such a special and integral part of our wedding day, and the ceremony was one of my favorites moments :)Sent on 10/18/2019

Deborah was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. My fiance and i met with Deborah a few months before our July wedding and we knew immediately that we wanted her to officiate our wedding. She was so welcoming and vibrant. We loved how helpful she was in the planning of the actual ceremony. She was key to making our ceremony feel just right for us.Sent on 07/23/2019
On the day of the wedding, Deborah made everything so much better. Her professionalism and poise helped bring everything together during a chaotic time. EVERYONE in our wedding LOVED the ceremony and we truly believe that was Deborah's doing.

Soulful and Experienced
The heart of a wedding is the ceremony, so it was essential for us to partner with someone who had there right blend of soulfulness and professionalism. Working with Deborah was that and more! She brought to our ceremony her beautiful presence, her many years of experience, her deep heart, humor and intelligence. Most importantly, she brought her love for ritual and her ability to capture the essence of our relationship. We could not recommend her enough!Sent on 05/27/2019

Rev Deb was truly an amazing officiant for our wedding. My husband and I, being from different backgrounds struggled on what type of ceremony we wanted and whether we wanted someone we knew to officiate the ceremony. After being recommended Rev Deb, and having our first facetime with her, we knew she was the one we wanted to officiate our wedding. She is awesome, caring, thoughtful, and truly connects with all those that she meets. She was so organized and helped us create a ceremony that was a true reflection of ourselves. She helped us reach out of our comfort zones. We were very hesitant to do our own vows at first and she encouraged us that it would be so much more meaningful if we did them on our own.... and BOY WAS SHE RIGHT... waterworks like crazy!! But good waterworks. Everyone at our wedding said the ceremony was beautiful. Adam and I couldn't agree more!!Sent on 10/12/2018
Love, Deana and Adam

As a recent mother of the groom, my heart is still overflowing. There were so many moments that literally took my breath away. Without a doubt, one of these was the deeply beautiful way Deborah made the happy couple's bond official. I hung on her every word, not only because she was speaking to my son and his bride, but because her words were intimate, personal, and beautifully profound. Deborah's ceremony was perfect because it was wholly authentic, and a true reflection of each of them and the two of them together. How lucky we were to have been the beneficiaries of Deborah's obvious talents and generosity of heart.Sent on 10/14/2018

The ceremony Deborah created for us struck the perfect balance of intimacy, personalization, and uniqueness. We loved working with her and our guests had nothing but complements of both Deborah and the ceremony. Deborah took a lot of time to understand us and craft the perfect personalized ceremony. We highly recommend working with her!Sent on 01/01/2019

Deborah officiated my sisters wedding and my niece's baby child ceremony. This is how we found her. She is absolutely the best there is! She is full of great ideas and inspiration. She really makes you think about what you are doing and reflect upon why you are getting married to your partner. If you;'re searching for an officiant for your wedding, trust me - just hire Deborah and do not stress about it. She will make your ceremony as beautiful as you dreamed.Sent on 09/10/2018
Lauren · Married on 08/10/2018
Deborah was the officiant for our elopement in Morningside Park. We planned it in about two months and didn't even finalize the location until a few days before. Through all that, Deborah was wonderful. She made suggestions that helped make our day more special and guided us as we designed a totally custom ceremony. She also sent us a marriage questionnaire that we each filled out and then discussed the answers to in detail and that really helped us realize we were on the same page on the big and the little things. On the day of the ceremony, Deborah was totally flexible as our ceremony started a little late. She is the best and we can't recommend her enough!!Sent on 08/13/2018
Gen · Married on 06/23/2018
I have lost count of the number of our wedding guests who reached out to me afterwards and said that our ceremony was their favorite part of the day because it truly felt personal and "like us". We 100% have Deborah to thank for that. She guided us in choosing the language, elements, and overall design-- and encouraged us to write our own vows which was so, so special. We met with her several times leading up to the big day and she really got to know us and made sure that every aspect of the ceremony felt authentic to us as a couple. We cannot thank her enough for the care and thought she put into our day, and for thinking of all of the little things to make sure it went perfectly. The ceremony really can be such an amazing, unique, special element and that is what you'll get with Deborah. Do yourself a favor, hire Deborah as your officiant, and give yourself one less thing to worry about!Sent on 09/23/2018

We loved working with Rev Deb for our wedding! She gave us some great ideas and was flexible to include the things that were important to us. In the end, she helped us create the ceremony of our dreams and we will always be thankful to her for that! We got to know Rev Deb through a few coaching sessions which we felt helped us as we prepared for the big day and really added to the personal touch of the ceremony. We highly recommend Rev Deb!Sent on 09/23/2018

It was truly a delight to plan our ceremony with Reverend Deborah and she was extremely helpful in crafting our special moment together. She really cared about making it perfect for us and provided excellent advice and recommendations. On the evening of our wedding, Reverend Deborah was there when we arrived and was a very friendly officiant who got along very well with our guests and did an amazing job during our ceremony. We are truly grateful for her guidance and highly recommend her for anyone.Sent on 04/29/2018

We absolutely love Deborah! She is so warm, friendly and such a joy to work with. She put together the most beautiful ceremony for our wedding this past weekend. We are thrilled and our families are still raving about how wonderful she, and the whole ceremony, was. We could not have wished for a better officiant - she really made the event so memorable and perfect and we are so appreciative.Sent on 12/04/2017

Deborah is the best. Due to an unfortunate family situation we came to Deborah a week before the wedding. We knew Deborah was right after talking to her on the phone for 5 minutes, even though we talked for nearly 50. The next day Deborah met with me and my fiancé, and we jumped right in. She did such a great job working with us at the last second to craft a stunning ceremony. We loved everything about her energy and what she brought to the table. Couldn't have been happier.Sent on 11/12/2017

Deborah was truly incredible in every way!! I HIGHLY recommend using her for your wedding if you are looking to embrace and soak up the sacred and spiritual aspects of your most special day. Our sessions together were interesting, insightful and so worth every second leading up to the big day. She is supportive, accommodating and has a beautiful energy that makes your wedding ceremony bright, meaningful and personal. She takes the time to make sure your ceremony is exactly what you want and that it reflects your relationship perfectly! Everyone at our wedding said that the ceremony was the most beautiful and touching ceremony they have ever been to... My husband and I agree!!!! THANK YOU DEBORAH!!!!Sent on 01/14/2018
