I have helped many honor attendants and parents with the construction of their speech. We can start from scratch, or work with what they already have.

First, I invite you to make contact with me via phone at 845-222-5146 (NY) or 201-785-7933 (NJ) or E-mail

Next, when we speak, I will tell you more about what I do, but the most important component to building your ceremony is when I listen to you and find out what you are looking for.

To start, I will ask you basic questions about your ceremony day, such as date, time, venue, etc.

Next, we’ll talk about if there are any spiritual elements you would like to include, or would you prefer that it be free of any religious references? Will someone be singing or doing a reading? Would you like to include a moment of remembrance and honor loved ones who could not attend on your special day because they are ill or have passed? Have you given any thought to including a rose, candle or sand ceremony in your wedding?

***Don’t worry if you don’t have what you want in mind just yet. I am here to guide you and bring it all together.

Basically, during our conversations, I find out what makes you and your fiancee unique as a couple, and as individuals. I will ask questions about how you met, what your first date was like, what made you fall in love with each other, how you would describe one another, things that you like to do together, what the engagement was like and how you picture your wedding.

Finally, I take the information and I create a ceremony for you. Some of the elements we discuss will be included in the actual ceremony text. The other information helps me to get a “flavor” for who you are as a couple to build a wedding that is truly “yours”.

After your ceremony, you and your fiancee will have experienced a moment in your lives that you, your fiancee, your family and friends will never forget. In fact, they will likely talk about it for years to come as it will stand out from every other ceremony they have attended. Why? Because it is Your Personalized Ceremony!
