Rev. Lisa Zaro (Owner)

Hudson Valley / NJ Wedding Officiant

Lauren + Dave (Digital Weddings - Fishkill)

As the proud owner of Personalized Ceremonies by Rev. Zaro, and a non-denominational Ordained Minister, I am thrilled to help you with your ceremony needs. My goal is to get to know you, what you want, and put together a ceremony that reflects your wishes. I do not do cookie cutter ceremonies, which means that I don't put templates in front of you and ask you to pick one. I'll ask you many questions about your wedding, baby blessing, or other event plans and the people involved, then I will put all of the details together in a ceremony written for you.

The Professional Wedding Officiants I recommend when I am already booked are listed on under the OFFICIANTS tab at the top of each page, and in the bottom menu throughout Each brings their own unique style and presentation. All of the Officiants on, except me, are Independent Contractors. When you speak with them, feel free to ask lots of questions and tell them all about your big day. All of the ministers I recommend are very personable, professional and are thrilled to be a part of the wedding and event industry. We all absolutely love what we do!

Whether you are looking for a personalized ceremony, a simple wedding or a brief elopement, I'd love to talk with you! I am based out of Monroe, NY and I service Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Westchester Counties, the 5 boroughs of NYC, Long Island, Northern NJ (Bergen, Morris, Sussex, Passaic) and destination locations. Some of the officiants who work with me serve much further North or South, so if you are not in the above areas, not to worry!

My husband Joe and our twin boys, Joseph and Anthony, continuously inspire me and keep my passion for what I do growing. When we are together, we laugh often, play with the boys, relax in front of the tv, visit with family and friends, and play with our dogs, Goofy and Lily. Our home in Monroe, NY (Orange County) is affectionately nicknamed "The Zaro Zoo". There is never a dull moment and our place is full of love!

If you would like more information on ceremony packages, fees, or to schedule your initial consultation, I would love to hear from you. Please contact me at (845) 222-5146 (NY) or (201) 785-7933 (NJ) or fill out your  REQUEST INFORMATION FORM - CLICK HERE.
