With Rev. Zaro & Officiants, your ceremony is customized to fit your unique personality!

Personalized Ceremonies by Rev. Zaro & Officiants

Say "Goodbye" to the Same Old Cookie Cutter Wedding Ceremonies and "Hello!" to Love, Laughter & Celebration with Your Hudson Valley Wedding Officiant!

If you are looking for a Wedding Officiant in the Hudson Valley, Westchester or Northern New Jersey area who will create a ceremony that is reflective of your beliefs, traditions and personalities as a couple, I would love to speak with you. My name is Rev. Lisa Zaro and my passion is in making YOUR ceremony reflect YOUR requests so that you have a memorable wedding that your guests will talk about for many years to come! The Professional Wedding Officiants & Ordained Ministers I work with are committed to the same high level of service to our couples.

As a Professional Wedding Officiant, I am an active member of the International Association of Professional Wedding Officiants and the founder of Wedding Vendors of the Hudson Valley, a networking group of over 700 event pros in the lower upstate NY area.

I absolutely love what I do! How many people get to say that they spend their time celebrating life? I feel blessed that I am one of the few that are able to say that. As an Ordained Minister, my role in celebrating life goes beyond weddings to families celebrating a birth with the baptism, naming, blessing or adoption of a child or the passing of a loved one. If you are looking for a Minister for your life celebration, it is my pleasure to offer you a complimentary consultation. I look forward to hearing from you

- Rev. Lisa Zaro, Owner / Ordained Minister

- Experience. I have officiated several hundred weddings in the past few years, and the Officiants that work with me are dedicated to providing quality, professional services as well. I absolutely love what I do, as do Reverends Laurie and Diana. We all feel so lucky that we can truly connect with the couples we work with to make their day special. Let's talk about what you are looking for in your Wedding Officiant. Call me any time at 845-222-5146!

- Connections. No, not mob or mafia, but Wedding Professionals! As the Founder of Wedding Vendors of the Hudson Valley, I run a networking group of over 700 Hudson Valley/Westchester wedding pros. The Wedding Officiants that work with me are members as well. If you need someone in a flash, or for next year, or the year after, feel free to reach out to us. We would be happy to assist you with recommendations for other areas of your big day.

- Flexibility & Humor.  We are very in tune with our couples and want to make sure you are comfortable with everything. So, guess what?! You get to PREVIEW YOUR CEREMONY so the two of YOU have the final say on what is included. We encourage you to tell us of ANY changes you want. If you aren't comfortable, then we are not comfortable. This is the most important day of your life, and our job as your Wedding Officiant is to give you the best possible experience! You can even have some humor in your ceremony if you like! We will create a ceremony for you that reflects your personalities, including your sense of humor. We want you to feel relaxed and at ease during your wedding, so we can encorporate some levity and laughter that is NOT CHEESY, don't worry! Again, you get to preview everything, so nothing is said in front of your guests without your OK. After all, you know each other, your family and friends best, so you get to be the judge of how much you love your ceremony. Once you send us your changes, we make any adjustments you request and you have YOUR ceremony that is tailored to the two of YOU! (Can you tell we are all about our couples yet?)

- No hidden fees. Everything will be laid out for you up front so you know exactly what your package includes and what your options are. The details will be in your contract, which you will have a chance to review before returning it with your retainer. We do NOT charge for you to have readings or special elements (candle, sand, flower, time capsule, unity canvas, breaking of the glass, etc.). We will suggest readings for you so that you don't have to search the web or library for them. For special elements, all you have to provide is the items for the ceremony, such as the candles, holders, sand, vase or shadowbox, flowers, etc. We will NEVER nickle and dime our couples. Stress is something we never, ever want to impose on you. So, we make our packages very clear! Would you like a preview of our package pricing and inclusions?
