  • I cannot express my gratitude towards Dr. Gross. I emailed her with tricky situation and she went WELL above and beyond to make my dreams possible. Her kindness and willingness to help is truly amazing. I cant thank you enough. This review is based off the phone conversation we had today and I would recommend her to anyone based off this conversations alone. You can tell instantly she puts her heart into her work .

  • We hired Sheila just two weeks before our wedding and she went above and beyond for us in that short time. She really got to know our story and incorporated beautifully into our ceremony. Our family and friends were literally coming up to us afterward to ask where we found such a phenomenal person to marry us! We are beyond grateful for you and your pure loving energy Sheila. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING!

  • We were blessed to have Sheila be our officiant for our wedding (see review for 6/16/17 wedding). We had so many people come up to us and rave about the wonderful experience Sheila provided for our wedding and when we moved into our new home, we could not think of a better person than Sheila to provide such a special, thoughtful, uniquely-created home blessing for us on 9/20/19. Sheila put such great effort and love to ask us what we would like to have in a home blessing as well as continue to hear all about our lives after our wedding as she truly cares about each and every person she has met and/or worked with. The home blessing could not have been thought up any better with many tears of joy and emotion from our close family and friends that evening of our blessing and the absolute joy and gratitude all of our close family and friends felt for being a part of it! Sheila is second to none!

  • Words cannot describe how happy we are with Sheila. From our first conversations to meeting via skype because she worked around our busy schedule, to her helping us with every step of the ceremony she was unbelievable. Her words are beautiful and the way she incorporated our children into the ceremony was priceless. I can't tell you how many people came up to us during the reception raving about Sheila. There was not a dry eye in the place after she was done. She spoke about us and to us as if she'd known us for 30 years. I can't say enough good things about her. If you need an officiant, you don't have to look any further. If she's available grab her!

  • Sheila married my husband and I in 2017 and our ceremony was absolutely amazing. We have friends and family to this day that still tell us it was the most unique and beautiful wedding ceremony they had ever been to. Fast forward 2 years later and we asked Sheila if she did baby blessings as we are not “religious”. To our pleasant surprise, Sheila said yes! The little blessing ceremony that she put together with us was perfect and something we will treasure for the rest of our lives and our daughter’s life. What Sheila does is truly unique and one of a kind and we could not have asked for anything more. We cannot thank her enough for being part of such special events in our lives and for creating extremely memorable moments that we will never forget.

  • Sheila worked with us to create a beautiful personalized ceremony for my now husband and I, despite not being available on the day of to deliver it. Shelia went above and beyond to then set us up with another wonderful officiant (Jody Long) who delivered the ceremony Sheila had written. It was perfect and had all of the magic that Sheila promised. She was a joy to work with, flexible and nurturing — coaching us through the process of getting our marriage license, writing our vows and creating the flow of our wedding. A week later we are still getting calls from friends and family about how touched they were by the experience! If you have the opportunity to work with Sheila I would absolutely recommend it!

  • Sheila was an absolute pleasure to work with. From the moment we first talked to her, we could tell that she loves what she does. My fiancé (now husband!) and I met her at her home and spoke to her for two hours about our relationship and what we wanted for our ceremony. It honestly felt like talking to a long-time friend. We are not religious so we were a bit nervous about the ceremony considering we had never seen a non-religious ceremony before. Sheila immediately put us at ease and wrote an amazing and very personal ceremony. She made sure that both of felt included in the process and wrote the ceremony in a way to keep our guests involved and engaged. We got so many compliments about how the ceremony was beautiful and perfectly “us”. Another amazing thing about working with Sheila, is that she is really on top of things. She would text/email my fiancé and I to see how we were doing on our vows, if we got our license, etc. which is great when you are planning a wedding an... Read more

  • Only Rev. Sheila could have performed our marriage ceremony on August 11 with such care and genuine warmth. Since Monica and I meet with Sheila I person plus numerous calls, she was able to truly tell our story of how we met and fell in love while including “everyone” in the ceremony.

  • Sheila is an absolute joy to work with and a true professional. From the moment I first spoke with her, I knew she was our officiant. She’s the kind of person that you can talk to for hours (and we did!!) and completely lose track of time with. From our first meeting, we were put at ease, and felt that her effervescent and unique personality fit us to a T. My (now) husband and I are from different religious backgrounds and wanted to pay tribute to both in our ceremony. Sheila was seamlessly able to blend Jewish and Catholic traditions while still performing a beautiful, personal, nondenominational ceremony. We couldn’t be more pleased working with her and are sure to recommend her to everyone we know looking for a ceremony that’s as special and unique to them as Sheila is to us!

  • When it comes to having the wedding of your dreams, I would highly suggest you including Shelia in your special day. She could have not made our day any more memorable. From start to finish, working with Shelia was a delight. In all reality, we only met with Shelia a month or so before our wedding and I could not believe the ceremony she performed for us. The details were very in depth and we felt like we knew her forever and she knew our WHOLE story. The way she explained our story and our love for each other made it very intimate. Most importantly, she included our FIVE children in our ceremony, and that I have to say was very important to the both of us. Sheila, thank you so much for making our day unforgettable! I know other couples will be just as delighted and LUCKY as we were and to STILL have you in our lives.

  • If you want your wedding ceremony to be unforgettable, there is no one better than Sheila. She did our ceremony for our 6/14/19 wedding and it was definitely one for the books! My husband and I didn't want a religious ceremony, but we did want it to be personal and intimate - to tell the story of us. Sheila spent almost 6 hours with us collectively to get to know us - what we love about each other, how we met, etc. She took the time to get to really each of us on a personal level and it showed in the fantastic ceremony that she performed for us. She handled all the details and planning for the entire ceremony - I didn't have to worry about a thing. She was so kind, warm, caring, responsive, helpful, calming throughout the entire process and that day wouldn't have been the same without her. I wish I could have another wedding just so I could hire her to marry us again! I love that, with her, it wasn't a scripted day - it was unique and special and she involved all of our guests from sta... Read more

  • Sheila caught us all off guard! Of course we were confident that she would do a wonderful job of officiating, based off of her great reviews, but she far exceeded our expectations. We had 12 people attend our ceremony, and Sheila made sure that each one of them played a part in sending us off as husband and wife. She described our relationship perfectly, adding her own personality to our memories, creating a beautiful story for us all to share. We truly cannot thank Sheila enough for how perfect that day turned out. She even referred a wonderful photographer to us! Though our family may be biased, they said this was the best ceremony they ever attended. Thank you Sheila!!!!! xoxoxo

  • We hired Sheila after reading many great reviews on wedding wire and having our first phone call and in person meeting. She lived up to all of the great praise. Sheila dedicated as much time as we needed prior to our wedding and gave great advice. She really took the time to get to know us and was able to deliver a meaningful ceremony and to tell our story in a way that helped everyone in the room connect to it. We loved that she included our friends and family throughout the ceremony. People came up to us after and said it was one of the most heartfelt and loving ceremonies that they had experienced. We couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. Thank you Sheila!!
