Weddings in New York City

Creating and Officiating at Ceremonies

I specialize in creative, customized marriage ceremonies for couples of no particular religious connection, mixed religious backgrounds, or others who want a nontraditional, humanistic wedding service, making your public commitment based on your shared values. I work with couples to create the ceremonies, and I officiate at the ceremonies.

Relationship Coaching

Some couples also choose my relationship coaching package. Are there issues in your relationship you'd rather resolve before the ceremony -- often around finances, communication, decision-making, roles? Or do you just want to raise your relationship skills to a higher level, to enrich your marriage experience? I use a research-based online instrument to identify areas to work on, and then meet with the couple for 3 to 6 one-hour sessions to work on building new skills and understanding.

Other Ceremonies

In addition to wedding ceremonies, I am available for creative and customized commitment services, services of union, renewal of vows, funerals, memorial services, baby namings or welcomings, and other creative life passage ceremonies.


I'm located in the New York City metro area. Standard fees apply within 90 minutes drive from Brooklyn.  See the page on "other locations" for referrals to selected colleagues in other parts of the country.Standard Fees

Standard fees for helping to create a custom ceremony, officiating at the wedding, and, at your option, being present at the wedding rehearsal, are on a sliding scale from $700 to $300.  A package of relationship coaching and officiating is $700, or $500 for just the relationship coaching sessions. Contact me for fees for other life passage ceremonies.
