As a professional, registered wedding officiant in New York City, I greatly enjoy the honor of participating in weddings, vow renewals, and engagement celebrations.  I also officiate baby welcomings, as well as memorial and funeral services.  Those who seek my services are looking for a caring celebrant for their full wedding celebration or Justice of the Peace style elopement.  Particularly with the introduction of Marriage Equality across most states, I am proud to have legally performed 1400 ceremonies and counting for very diverse couples with their own brilliant and beautiful styles. 

Marriages do last!  Today, with greater equity and knowledge, marital bonds are strengthening.  When we are willing to learn, we become wiser, kinder, and happier as anniversaries pass.  For my part, I endeavor to provide a gentle, dignified ceremony. No one can promise a perfect day. I do promise personal diligence.  As I experience daily life, I do my best to grow in knowledge about the world and love.  By better understanding the many values of marriage, I may give you a ceremony filled with integrity and, hopefully, insight.

With joy, I work as a wedding officiant throughout the NYC metro region in parks, gardens, hotels, restaurants, private homes, historic landmarks, churches, and reception halls.  Whether your attendants be lots of family and friends, an intimate celebration with your kids and pets, or your photographer and myself, I will do my best to make your wedding day peaceful and joyful.  

Warm regards,  

Judie L. Guild,

Registered Wedding Officiant #77862
