A wedding ceremony is the one time a couple has to declare their devotion, love, and faith to their significant other; I truly believe that your wedding ceremony should reflect who the couple is, as individuals, and as the united force they form. 

Simply put, your wedding ceremony should be as unique as you are. 

I'm here to make that happen.

I have been a registered officiant with the Universal Life Church since 2007, and since 2011, I have married over 50 couples. I am a secular officiant, but more than happy to work with you on integrating as much, or as little spirituality, religion, humanism or silliness, into your ceremony. I recognize that every couple is unique and will work with you towards creating a ceremony which represents your relationship, love, and selves. Further, I would be honored to work with you and your significant other on creating wedding vows. However you want your ceremony, we can figure it out together. 

Upon graduation from New York University with a degree in Religious Studies, with a concentration in traditions and ceremony, I had the wonderful experience of working for a few years at a Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. In 2011, I was blessed with the chance to officiate a marriage. It was the perfect synthesizing of my interests, talents and my absolute wonder and respect for love, and thus began my passion for creating one-of-a-kind and memorable wedding ceremonies for couples. 

I would love to be part of your wedding, commitment ceremony, or renewal of vows. I am LGBTQ friendly, standing on the side of love, and proud to be officiating weddings in New York State. Currently, I can serve Long Island and New York City. 

If you have any questions feel free to email me at CheerleaderForLove@gmail.com. I'd love to hear from you! 

 

THE BUTTER CREAM FROSTING PACKAGE | $700

  • You provide the ceremony, you can write it, find it in a book or source it from the internet.  

  • Up to 1 hour of phone/skype consultation.

  • Available to you "on call" via email. Frantic concerns welcome. 

  • I will arrive 10 minutes prior ceremony. 

*This is a great elopement package! We can keep it short and sweet with a civil ceremony. A weekday ceremony at the top of the Empire State Building or on Coney Island are great ways to tie the knot. All we need is a great space, you two and a witness!

THE ROYAL ICING PACKAGE | $850

  • I present you with options for each part of the ceremony (Welcome, Convocation, Invocation, Readings, Address, Consecration, Expression of Intent, Blessing of the Rings and Pronouncement of Marriage). You can add or remove sections (Remembrance of those Passed, etc). 

  • Up to 1 hour of phone/skype consultation.

  • Available to you "on call" via email. Frantic concerns welcome.

  • I will arrive 10 minutes prior ceremony. 

CEREMONY ASSISTANCE | $200

  • I present you with options for each part of the ceremony (Welcome, Convocation, Invocation, Readings, Address, Consecration, Expression of Intent, Blessing of the Rings and Pronouncement of Marriage). You can add or remove sections (Remembrance of those Passed, etc).

  • Up to 1 hour of phone/skype consultation.

  • Available to you "on call" via email. Frantic concerns welcome. 

VOW ASSISTANCE | $200

  • I've found that many couples feel more comfortable with a third party reading over their vows. Some times it's hard to get started, I can help with that. Some couples want their vows to "match" (i.e. make sure one isn't too silly while the other is seriously sappy and they seem to not sync up), but don't want to share them with each other until the ceremony, I can help with that. 

  • I will consult with you both separately for 1 hour each (phone or in person, whichever works). 

  • Unlimited email contact. 

ADDITIONAL TIME | $70/HOUR
