  • Laura was available to answer any questions we had prior to our Zoom ceremony and helped ease our worries about having a virtually-officiated ceremony. She had a great presence on the Zoom call with our family joining us from overseas, and the ceremony was just perfect under her guidance!

  • Despite having met only virtually and a year ago, it still feels like we have known Cantor Stein our whole lives. That is the easiest way to describe how personal of an approach Cantor Stein takes. She perfectly balanced professionalism, intimacy and spiritualism to make a uniquely special experience. She then went above and beyond, acting as our advisor and friend as the Pandemic complicated everything. She made our small Pandemic wedding as perfect as it could have been and will undoubtedly make our future party just as special :)

  • We hired Cantor Laura to officiant our Zoom wedding, as virtual weddings our now legal in New York. She did a fantastic job walking us through the process and making sure all of our paperwork was properly handled. She worked with us to make our ceremony feel special and our guests even commented on what a wonderful job she did. If you are having a virtual wedding in NY, I would not hesitate to hire Cantor Laura!

  • Cantor Stein went above and beyond for us when we contacted her 30 days before-hand to officiate an impromptu, quarantine-style Jewish wedding. Not only did she take the time to get to know us and learn our story, but she incorporated our uniqueness into the ceremony and made it feel wonderfully personal. Additionally, her singing voice is absolutely beautiful and it amplified the excitement of the moment. Bottom line - she will make you and your wedding feel special. If you are in need of an officiant for a Jewish wedding who is registered in both NYC and NYS, I highly recommend that you consider Cantor Laura Stein!

  • A wedding ceremony is a production - the bride and groom are the stars of the show, but having a great officiant makes the event even more memorable for all in attendance. And we are eternally grateful to have shared our special day with Cantor Stein. She acted as a wonderful spiritual advisor to help construct a meaningful ceremony and allowed us to introduce elements of Judaism and symbolism to make the ceremony "ours". If you are seeking spiritual guidance and a lovely singing voice, we highly recommend Cantor Stein for your big day.

  • Cantor Stein was an incredible partner throughout our interfaith ceremony planning process. She listened to our love story and ceremony wishes and then expertly crafted a beautiful narrative to share with our friends and family at the wedding. On the day of our event, she delivered a personalized, poignant ceremony that was one of the highlights of our day. Guests commented on our ceremony throughout the night and beyond to let us know how meaningful and memorable it was. Thank you so much to Cantor Stein for her collaboration and amazing work! We are thrilled to recommend her as an officiant.

  • Cantor Stein was professional and made us feel comfortable from start to finish. She came to our apartment to get to know as and walked us through everything we needed to know. We had an interfaith ceremony and she was flexible in working with out Monsignor to create the perfect ceremony that fit us as a couple while keeping with tradition. We were so happy to have her as part of our day.

  • Laura was great ! Due to the coronavirus we had to reschedule a lot of things for our wedding and that included getting an officiant. I found her online and at the beginning I was hesitant because other officiants did not give me much certainty specially because I did my marriage online through the NYC project Cupid. Laura responded very fast! She scheduled a call with me and my wife in which she was very clear and professional ! The wedding was great , Laura walked us through the process and had a lot of patience (that day we ran late to the ceremony). Laura provided a very intimate ceremony in Spanish ! It was great that she spoke English and Spanish ! Everyone loved how she managed the ceremony and she gave me and my wife her complete time and attention! She also walked us through the process of submitting the signed license online ! Laura was very professional, detail oriented , great making the online wedding happen , and she provided the certainty and knowledge we were looking fo... Read more

  • Cantor Laura was amazing! We were looking for someone who would be able to officiate our socially distanced, intimate ceremony on May 24th, and still incorporate Jewish traditions that we found meaningful. We immediately clicked with Laura, and were on the same page about what was important and most meaningful, especially during this time when everything we had originally planned was so very up in the air. After our initial call, we had a follow up conversation to go over the logistics and what elements were important to us (and what things we could leave out). It was a pleasant reassurance that we were all on the same page, and she didn't force anything on us that we were not comfortable with. She put together an amazing ceremony, including a meaningful poem we wanted read, and very clearly and warmly articulated what this life stage event is all about. She did all of this in a 1-2 week turnaround! We received so many compliments on how wonderful the ceremony was, and how great the Ca... Read more

  • Cantor Stein was a pleasure to work with and helped make our wedding day personal and special. My husband and I were originally supposed to get married in Peru but our plans changed because of the pandemic. Cantor Stein informed us about project Cupid so we were able to apply for an online marriage license promptly, and then helped us plan and execute a beautiful ceremony that included elements of my Jewish American upbringing and my husband's Latin upbringing. We loved the fact that Cantor Stein spoke Spanish and had lived in South America previously so she could relate to both of us. I highly recommend Cantor Stein for your upcoming in person or zoom wedding and plan to ask her to help us renew our vows whenever it is safe for us to travel to Peru for our reception.

  • Cantor Stein officiated at my son and daughter in laws wedding. The wedding was truly magical however the ceremony was the most meaningful. Cantor Stein is warm and welcoming to all under the chuppah and those who were in attendance. She spent time getting to know the bride and groom and her presence at the wedding was like she was one of the family. We loved having her be a part of our mitzvah.

  • If you’re reading these reviews, you know finding an officiant is no easy feat, especially when you’d call yourself Jew-ish, you’re not a part of any synagogue, and you haven’t made inroads in your local Jewish community. We were at a loss for where to turn, until we stumbled upon Cantor Stein, who stood out to us amongst the rest with her commitment to ceremony personalization, pre-marital get-to-know-yous and guidance, and overall welcoming demeanor. Her calming nature and sense of humor hooked us from the initial phone call and we knew we’d be in good hands with her by our side on our wedding day. The pre-marital sessions were a perfect blend of relationship building, information gathering, and detail planning. Cantor Stein did an AMAZING job getting to know us and it made all the difference when it came to the ceremony, which was beautifully personalized to us as a couple and our level of Jewish faith. By the time we reached the end of the aisle, it felt as though our che... Read more

  • Cantor Laura Stein was one of the best decisions we made for our New Year's Eve ceremony. Every single person raved about her ceremony (and voice) afterwards, including us. It did the perfect job blending what we needed. I'm Jew"ish" - culturally, yes, but not observant - and my husband's family is Catholic. Majority of our guests were not Jewish. Yet, everyone felt welcomed and were able to follow along with everything. We also really enjoyed working with Laura leading up to our wedding. She helped us have conversations we needed to have and talk about topics that were important to us.

  • Remote wedding during Corona-times. We asked for a very basic ceremony and Laura did an amazing job. She even provided us with some screenshots on her end without us thinking to ask her for it. She knows how the new system works and has been able to guide us through it expertly. Thank you Laura!
