  • A big thank you to Sheila for a magnificent job on our wedding ceremony, which isn't in fact a job. It's passion transformed into art, love transform into words, words transformed into genuineness. Sheila loves what she does and it shows. So thank you Sheila, for creating a ceremony so amazing, so unique, so lovely, that everyone is still saying "It's the best wedding I've ever attended!" You truly are the best! :)

  • Working with Sheila on our wedding ceremony was an amazing experience. We wanted something that was unique to us as a couple with slight nods to our backgrounds and Sheila guided us every step of the way. We met with her at her home a few times to get to know each other and to write the ceremony together and it always felt like visiting an old friend. Never before have I heard so many people talk about how much they loved the ceremony and it was the talk of our wedding. She helped take what was already such a special day and made it even better. Our wedding date was her own anniversary and she still spent the day with us. In short -- I wouldn't change anything about our ceremony or the process. It was an incredible experience and Sheila ensured that we were taken care of and felt comfortable every step of the way. I would reach out to her right away!

  • What can we say? Sheila was amazing... from the moment we met with her we knew our ceremony was going to be something unique, different and unforgettable. Sheila listened to our story and our requests and put together the most beautiful ceremony that told our story. The first thing almost all of our guests said to us when we arrived at cocktail hour was that our ceremony was the most beautiful and touching ceremonies they had ever been a part of. Sheila did an amazing job incorporating the guests into the ceremony and truly made it one of a kind. We cannot thank Sheila enough for her guidance and for being part of our special day. If you are looking for an officiant, look no further!!!

  • There are not enough positive words to describe Sheila and just how thankful we are to have found her. Sheila has become more than our officiant, she's someone we hold close to our hearts and plan to stay in touch with forever. When I first started looking for an officiant my biggest fear was not being able to find someone my husband and I connected with, but after meeting Sheila we were immediately put at ease. She welcomed us into her home and spent hours chatting with us. By the time we left we felt like we knew her our entire lives. Sheila went above and beyond what is required of an officiant. To give you an example of how much she cares, she invited us to her home a second time once we got closer to the wedding. She knew I'd been feeling stressed coordinating all the last minute details for the wedding and when we arrived she had my favorite flowers standing in a vase for me. I was so touched by her thoughtfulness. The actual ceremony was better than anything we could have... Read more

  • When my wife and I were getting set for our August 2017 wedding, we were eager to find the perfect officiant for our ceremony. Neither of us are religiously inclined, but both on the spiritual side - my wife moreso. It was a daunting task, as we were working from no experience, but when we met Sheila in December 2016, we knew she was the one. That first day with Sheila was like meeting a long, lost close friend for the first time. We spent hours in her home just getting to know each other and speaking at length about our backgrounds and respective spiritual views. We ran through a rough outline of how Sheila’s ceremonies go and went over some specifics that we wanted included and omitted. Sheila was of course incredibly understanding and comforting, and assured us that everything would be exactly to our liking. We kept in touch throughout the year and met for a second time at Sheila’s in late June 2017, where much to our pleasant surprise, she greeted us with my wife’s favor... Read more

  • We love Sheila! She is the best! Sheila gave us a lot of ideas to build off of to create a MAGICAL ceremony, one that not only we will remember as the couple getting married but one that our family and friends will remember and cherish because Sheila got the audience involved in "marrying" us too! That was fun. We can tell that Sheila has years of experience doing what she does. We met Sheila twice at her home to get to know one another and so she can get a feeling for what type of ceremony we wanted. As we are not religious, we did not really know what type of ceremony we wanted but Sheila knew once she got to know us and she was awesome in pulling it all off. From the first point of contact, Sheila was great in keeping in touch with us, whether it was by text, email or by phone. We kept in touch from the moment we met and up until the wedding day. She learned so much about us and we learned so much about her style, which we loved. Our wedding was at Red Maple Vineyard, an ... Read more

  • Where to start with Sheila... from beginning to end, everything about our experience was perfect! We first met with Sheila in her home to have a conversation and get to know each other. By the end, she felt more like a friend than a vendor. She truly got to know us as a couple and made our ceremony incredibly personal and special. Our guests laughed and cried and felt truly included. Months later, and we are still being told that our ceremony was the best any of our guests had ever seen! One of our friends even approached Sheila during cocktail hour to officiate her own wedding since she loved ours so much. It was the perfect blend of our personalities, our two religions, and our families. I really cannot say enough good things about Sheila--if you want a ceremony that is entertaining, heartfelt, and al about YOUR story, Sheila is the one for you!

  • Sheila is by far the most warming officiant we met, we knew the moment we sat down with her, that she would marry us! She is so accommodating and responsive to all of our needs. We were married on July 23rd, it was the most beautiful, emotional, touching ceremony. Both my husband & I & our guests just loved every minute of it! We still hear from our guests of how wonderful and personal our ceremont was. I'm so excited to watch our wedding video and keep this memory forever. We are so honored to have met Sheila, and will cherish the relationship with her. I hope to see her in the near future, and most definitely look forward to her blessing our future children

  • Hello my name is Jimmy and I Wanted to come on here and share how special Shelia Gross made myself and my wife feel on our wedding day and the months leading up to it. We sat with Shelia a few months before our wedding and right from the start we knew she was the one for us. She made us feel so warm inside and so welcome while we sat with her and went over everything. Never in my life have I ever been so impressed and emotionally charged but what Shelia was able to produce for us. My brother is currently serving in the Marines and is over in South Korea so not having him be at my wedding was one of the hardest things ever. Shelia who is just so special to me and my wife forever, went and reached out to my brother over seas and spoke directly with him so he could share some words with us at the wedding and make it feel like he was there even if it was for just a little bit. Needless to say 150 crying eyes later and 2 more with me and my wife Shelia was able to bring my brother T... Read more

  • We knew Sheila would be our officiant from the moment we met her. Sheila is a joyful, positive person, and you sense it from the first hello. Throughout the entire experience, Sheila got to know us, and we were lucky to get to know her as well. We quickly became friends - family even! You will not get a cookie-cutter type of experience with Sheila, as she makes certain that your wedding script is 100% personal to you, making it quite an intimate experience for all those present. Sheila was flawless in her delivery and we loved that she found her own way to incorporate all of our weddings guests in the most simple yet meaningful ways.

  • If you're looking for the PERFECT wedding officiant, look no further than Sheila! Unlike most other wedding officiants, Sheila spends time with you, gets to know you on a personal level, and even gets to know your closest loved ones to make your big day extra special. What my wife and I liked the most about her was that she made the wedding about us and our love, as it should be. My grandparents, my parents, my mom's seven brothers and sisters, and many of my cousins have been married by the same bishop in the same church for over 50 years! My wife and I were nervous going the less conventional route for a catholic family by being married outside by someone outside of the church, but it's what fits our beliefs and personalities. We are both so happy we did because we absolutely loved it and so did all of my relatives! Thank you, Sheila!

  • My husband and I were struggling trying to decide who should perform our ceremony. Both of our families are from a conservative Catholic tradition, and nobody in either family had ever been married outside the Catholic Church before. We are both much more spiritual than dogmatic in our beliefs, and wanted our ceremony to be a reflection of who we are as individuals and as a couple, and a wedding inside a Church simply could not provide that for us. I met Sheila at a bridal show, of all things, in Asbury Park. I immediately sensed a connection with her and quickly set up a meeting for her, my husband, and me to meet. We expected our first meeting with Sheila to be the typical 20 minute meeting in which she would tell us her pricing and what a typical ceremony looks like. We were so wrong! We ended up sitting in her home for over 2 hours as she got to know us and our values. She told us that she does not design the ceremony until she knows the couple first. That's how it should be!

  • Sheila just recently married my wife and I in New Jersey and from the very first meeting with her we knew we didn't want anyone else for the job. She went far above and beyond what we asked of her to make our day special for everyone, not just us. She really did her homework in getting to know us to make sure that our ceremony was perfect form us. Every time we had any questions leading up to the wedding she was right here with us. She has been in contact with us even after the wedding to ask about our honeymoon and how we are doing. She genuinely cares about her clients and builds a real relationship with the people that she shares these priceless moments with. If anyone can make your wedding day exactly how you want it to be and more, it would be Sheila. -Eric
