Congratulations on your engagement! Each couple is unique and so each wedding ceremony needs to be unique. The most beautiful ceremonies reflect the hopes, dreams, love, traditions, and values that you bring to each other.
I can provide resources and guidance throughout the ceremony planning process. As you determine how you want your wedding to be structured, I will help you both to understand the meaning of different rituals and customs (both religious and secular) and to select readings, prayers, and music that you find meaningful. Your ceremony can be creative and can include as many or as few religious elements and cultural traditions as you want. I can also help you prepare vows if you choose to write them yourself and determine how you would like to involve your family, friends, and guests in the ceremony.
In addition to providing rabbinical and cantorial services for Jewish weddings, I am comfortable conducting both interfaith and secular wedding ceremonies and am happy to co-officiate with special friends or family, or clergy from other faiths. I believe strongly in marriage equality and delight in serving and supporting the LGBTQIA+ community. In life – and especially at a wedding – everyone should feel loved and embraced.
