  • Our commitment ceremony was filled with joy, love and friendship all orchestrated by our wonderful Officiant Reverend Dr. Sheila Gross. On our first meeting, Sheila was able to capture our love for each other, as well as the love we wished to share with our family and friends. She was easy to speak with and advised how we could incorporate the ones we love, who were not among the wedding party. And like most couples in love and in disagreement, Sheila was able to counsel us on how we could celebrate those who had passed. Sheila is so warm and open she moved us to tears on our very first meeting. On the day of the ceremony, with her big heart and sincere tone, Sheila was able to envelope our family and friends with her words of kindness and inspiration, words meant not only for us, but also for everyone witnessing our union. From the ring warming to the seven Blessors, she took a piece of everyone’s emotion and transposed it into the most wonderful memory. And with that, she also s... Read more

  • My husband and I got married on August 16, 2009. It was the most amazing day of my life and largely due to Sheila. She made our ceremony so special, unique and personal. My husband is Catholic and I am Jewish and we both feel pretty strongly about our backgrounds and traditions. Sheila was able to creatively respect both of our traditions within the ceremony. Our guests raved about it. They loved how personal it was and how involved they were. One of my friends said she didn't want the ceremony to end! My favorite part of the whole day was when Sheila turned us to face our guests and had them pronounce us man and wife. I can chills thinking about it. Sheila is a special part of our lives and we will be seeing her in future for baby namings and other wonderful, exciting events in our lives!!!

  • Sheila was amazing! She personalized our ceremony beyond our wildest expectations, and left a lasting impression with all who attended. From our first phone conversation, I liked her, and after our face to face meeting, we knew she was a keeper. She has a vast knowledge of marriage rites from every culture and faith, so was able to make our ceremony reflective of our background and beliefs. She is also humorous and philosophical, so she had our guests laughing, thinking, and above all, engaged for the entire ceremony. We still have guests remarking on how our wedding was the best they'd ever attended, and many of our single guests "booked" her services for when their time comes. I'd 100% recommend Sheila Gross for your wedding.

  • First off, I have to say that my wife and I looked at other officiants and for the money they charged and what they offered it didn't compare to what Sheila was able to provide on our wedding day. When we first met her, she was very welcoming, asked very precise questions to really get to understand us as a couple, and we didn't feel like just another couple walking through the door; we felt like the only couple. We had some ideas of what we wanted to do and Sheila was very knowledgable about different cultural customs that could be done for a wedding. We knew we wanted to jump the broom and she knew about that. She even did further research and knew information that other officiants we spoke to had never even heard of! For example; tasting of the spices and the libation ceremony, which we including in our wedding. Therefore, we reached our goal of having a ceremony that reflected our African Ancestry. If you could speak to anyone from our wedding, they would say that Sheila was on... Read more

  • Our wedding day was June 13, 2009. Sheila deserve a gazillion stars! Our ceremony was more that we could have ever dreamed and hoped for. Our immaginations could never have conceived how Sheila made our ceremony so unique to us. I cannot say enough...she is simply the very best. It was personal and fun and exactly who we are as a couple. My best advise to anyone looking for an officiant...CALL HER! CALL HER! CALL HER! You will not be disappointed!!! Food for thought...6 months have past and our family and friends are still raving. I had to write a review.

  • I can't begin to recommend Sheila enough!!! When we met with her to discuss our plans, it was as if we'd all known each other for years. She really KNEW us. She is such a warm and engaging person, and we enjoyed meeting with her so much that we didn't want to leave that day! It was as if we were the most important people in the world to her. She went out of her way to tailor our ceremony to match our personalities and spiritual beliefs perfectly. It was the most beautiful part of our wedding day - the ceremony itself. Sheila really was one of the family on our special day, giving us a beautiful wedding gift with her ceremony, which was perfect!

  • We could not have been more pleased with Sheila and the beautiful, and touching ceremony she provided us. She not only gave us her time, and utmost attention, but also opened her home to us for the actual ceremony. We cannot say enough good things about Sheila and the wonderful service she provided us, a memory we will cherish forever. We absolutely LOVE her!

  • All Faiths is the perfect description for Sheila. She has studied wedding ceremonies and traditions from hundreds of different cultures and religions. And that knowledge was perfect for my wife and I. From the start we knew what we DIDN'T want a: traditional, cookie cutter ceremony. But we were also not sure what we wanted. No problem. Sheila had tons of ideas. She took the time to learn about us and made suggestions that were exactly what we didn't know we were looking for. I mean, how many officiants would be able to take me and my wife's love of Mountain Dew and turn it into a touching, fun and memorial part of our ceremony? And that's just one of the many ways Sheila made our ceremony special. One that could only be used for us. I can't recommend Sheila enough. She will find a way to make your special day feel even more special. If I had to do it all over again (and I pray I will NEVER have to plan a wedding again) I know my first call would be to Sheila. She was the pe... Read more

  • Sheila is a lovely soul who gets a tremendous joy out of helping couples make a life-long commitment to each other. She spent so much time with us at our first face to face meeting that I was surprised she wasn't charging more! She didn't just ask us about our vows, she asked about each other, our love for each other, our history together and more. She used this information to customize a wonderful ceremony for us and many of our friends and family said that ours was the most personal and funny wedding ceremony they had ever attended. Neither my husband or I are particularly religious people, but that doesn't mean Sheila can't do work with those who are. She took our faith into consideration when she wrote our ceremony. She must have spent hours on it. I have a few particularly lovely photos (by Laura Billingham, who is also on WeddingWire) of us standing in front of all our loved ones with Sheila, all three of us are laughing with mouths wide open and our heads thr...

  • If you are looking for an absolutely special ceremony filled with personal touches, tailered to your vision, that really speaks to the special bond of marriage...call Sheila. She is an amazing officiator. She will take your love story and make it come to life, including everyone in the room, so that the love you are celebrating will be felt by all. From our first meeing, we knew we had found the one with Sheila. She asked so many questions, got to know us in such a short period of time, then took our ideas and made a ceremony that was even better than we could have imagined. I can honestly say we had more people say ours was the best ceremony they'd ever been to because of the work Sheila did. She deserves so much praise.
