Welcome! Thank you for your interest!
As a full-time registered marriage officiant in New York, I perform weddings, vow renewals, engagement celebrations, baby welcomings, and funerals. Now that New York finally supports Marriage Equality, I am especially proud to legally marry all loving couples. I have officiated thirteen hundred (1300) ceremonies and counting for very diverse couples.
I grew up on Eastern Long Island, moved to Queens, nearly became an academic, and then discovered the meaning of creating ceremonies. These days, on topics both sentimental and serious, I read, write, research, and officiate.
Most of my couples are looking for an earthy and caring celebrant for their full wedding or Justice of the Peace style elopement. My couples marry throughout the New York Metropolitan region in parks, gardens, the beach, homes, hotels, restaurants, museums, and historic landmarks.
Whether your attendants be lots of family and friends, only your kids and dogs, the photographer and myself, or even only a kind stranger who is your witness, I will do my best to make your wedding day peaceful and joyful.
