(or, I googled myself so you don't have to.)

What makes Michelle's stylish wedding inspiration website so valuable to couples planning a wedding is that she doesn't just share the brides' experience, but she let's her readers see these gorgeous weddings from all the vendors perspectives', too. Here I revealed to her my most memorable weddings, and what makes a wedding memorable to me.

Would you believe me if I told you that back in the olden days, people kept online diaries where they wrote eloquent personal essays 100s of words longer than 140 characters? Back then it was unusual to find a wedding officiant online, and people who disapproved of the idea were not shy about saying so. So I am indebted to Emily for writing about choosing me as her wedding officiant on her blog. It was the first online mention of my wedding officiant services.

I was sad to read about a bride whose biggest wedding regret was that she didn't pay more attention to the ceremony, because no professional wedding officiant should allow that to happen. The ceremony is the reason for the celebration that follows. That's why my motto is "Your perfect wedding starts with your perfect ceremony." So I wrote an article for Wedding Lovely about the three essential choices every couple should make to have their perfect wedding ceremony.

Lindsey's favorite memory from her wedding is "laughing so uncontrollably" at the altar when "the officiant read a poem that talked about us tickling each other and I lost it after the 3rd tickle". When the Bride's favorite memory is the ceremony, I know I did my job! I smile whenever I think about this gorgeous NYC rooftop wedding.


"New York City elopements never get old." It's true! Especially when the handsome couple's summer solstice tour of NYC is vividly captured by wedding photographer Priyanca Rao, and climaxes with an intimate Central Park ceremony at the Ladies Pavilion.


What could be more sentimental than a "personalized, heart-felt and romantic ceremony" with a big group of family and friends in the hippest intimate venue in town?" How about holding the wedding on your parents' 44th wedding anniversary?


Wedding Officiants are the writers, producers, directors and lead performers of the wedding ceremony, but we make sure that the Bride and Groom are always the stars. Still, it's disappointing when, as usual, the media doesn't print your name...unless they print a picture of you from your stint on TV's Married At First Sight that your friends see first!


The SPRING/BREAK Art Show is easily the hippest art event in NYC. I officianted the show directors' [artists Ambre Kelly and Andrew Gori] legal "matrimonial ritual" as a piece of performance art during the opening press conference of the 2015 edition of the show, whose theme was "Transaction." A limited edition print of the marriage certificate was sold at subsequent shows. You can see me in the photos of other reports.


Connie and Fabiana went to high school together, but didn't know each other. When the internet happened, they reconnected on an early social network platform. Theirs is an old story with a very modern twist. Connie said she "hung on to every word that was spoken by our officiant," not wanting the ceremony to end. As is often the case with magazines, my name was removed from the draft-which I saw. (Do you see a pattern here, too?)

It's crazy how much can change in a lifetime, and I'm not talking about the internet. It's hard to imagine that some people used to argue that 2 people who loved each other were not entitled to marriage equality-now, thankfully, a minority viewpoint. So when New York State legalized marriage equality, a few of us wedding ministers were invited out to Fire Island to bring legal equality to gay couples. When I officiated the wedding of two men who'd already been together for 58 years, the whole town showed up in their honor!

What you find on Google: My first review! In the New York Times! Back when off-Broadway was downtown, Tin Pan Alley was a real place, and alligators still occasionally crawled out of manholes, theater critic Mel Gussow called my performance in Side Street Scenes "engaging" - sort of. Mom and Dad were so proud.
