  • Dana is great! She made my day special! I had tons of questions before and she patiently answered one by one. It is easy to see that Dana loves what she does, and that love and happiness she brought in to the ceremony was contagious. She did above and beyond my expectations I absolutely would recommend her. Thank you for making our day even more special Dana!

  • We're so happy we chose Dana as our officiant. Every step of the way we felt guided and supported by her to create a beautiful ceremony that fit us perfectly. I loved that she had us fill out a questionnaire and then show each other. She wrote a draft which we then could review and make small edits too. She suggested readings too. All of it felt very smooth and made me feel confident going into the wedding. And on the actual day it was perfect, just the right amount of touching, emotional and joyful. Everyone loved it, especially us!

  • From our first phone call with Dana, my husband and I knew she would be the one to marry us. She was so upbeat and personable on the phone, genuinely interested in our love story. We spent about an hour on the phone talking with her, just going over how we met, how long we’ve been dating, what type of ceremony we wanted, how our lives are structured, our relationship with our families, etc. The truth is, the time just flew by because she genuinely cared, and it was like talking to an old friend. Prior to meeting Dana, we met with a few other officiants who were very nice and we easily could have went with one of them and been done with it, but I’m glad we kept looking and met Dana. Once we hung up the phone after our first conversation, we knew we were done. We emailed her the next day and met with Dana soon after at Panera to talk again and put a face to the voice. It was a great meeting and we quickly booked her that day. What set Dana apart was that we knew she would make sure t... Read more

  • There were people who came to our wedding who swore to me they would not cry. Dana proved them wrong. Dana worked with us extensively to create a wedding ceremony that captured what we were looking for: personal, intimate, and meaningful. We went back and forth with numerous drafts where Dana offered lots of suggestions and ideas to get us where we wanted to be. We saw Dana at someone else's wedding and knew we wanted her to marry us because of the feeling and environment she created, and she did exactly the same for us.

  • Dana handled everything with top professionalism and care. Was very responsive on email, wrote a beautiful ceremony that really captured us as a couple, and took my request to start and finish the ceremony at a specific time for my astronomy chart very seriously ;) and she hit the timing perfectly! Most importantly, she embued the ceremony with such warmth and love, I felt she actually married us with her spirit, not her words. That was unexpected, and special beyond words. I would recommend any couple that wants to married by the higher spirit should choose Dana. As a Catholic, I've never met a priest who could do better ;)

  • As soon as I met Dana, I knew I wanted her to officiate my wedding. When my now wife met her, she knew why - her beaming smile and glowing personality make Dana so pleasant to work with. From the start, she listened to how we met and what we envisioned for our wedding. She took in everything we said and incorporated in ways we couldn't even imagine. Dana exceeded any and all expectation we had. All of our guests have commented what a beautiful ceremony it was - and we owe that to Dana. Thank you so much!

  • My now husband and I were really struggling trying to decide who we wanted to marry us. We are both Jewish but did not necessarily want to get married by a rabbi. When we finally found Dana we were so relieved. She is so warm and friendly and by the end of our initial phone call we felt like we had known her forever and knew she was right for us. Dana truly understood what we wanted and made our ceremony completely about us. While Dana offered wonderful suggestions for vows, readings, etc., she gave us the final say which meant so much to us. When our wedding day came everything was perfect and our ceremony was absolutely beautiful (and one of our favorite parts of the day). Our guests, who had never heard of a celebrant, were stunned at how wonderful the ceremony was. Friends who were already married said they wished they had used her and friends who are planning weddings asked for her number. We would recommend that EVERYONE use Dana.

  • Dana officiated our wedding June 4, 2016 at the Oakeside Mansion in Bloomfield, NJ. From the first moment we met Dana we knew she was the right choice to officiate on our big day. Her process for writing the ceremony was great: we had an initial discussion where she got to know us and then we filled out a questionnaire discussing our relationship. Dana then took that and turned it into a beautiful ceremony. She gave us options for flow and what we could and could not include. After a couple of drafts we had a very personal and emotional ceremony. Our wedding guests had great things to say about the day (food, music, etc) but EVERY single person we spoke to commented on how amazing the ceremony was. Most people thought that we had known Dana for years because the ceremony was so “us”. Dana was the perfect choice for us and we would recommend her to any couple looking for an officiant.

  • Dana was the best wedding decision we made! As an interfaith couple, we struggled on deciding who would marry us. We wanted to be true to ourselves, but also respect our families different backgrounds. Dana helped us to create a beautiful ceremony. It was so special to take part in the process by providing feedback and reviewing the ceremony draft, something my husband and I really enjoyed working on together. I am so glad Dana's name was recommended to us and would highly recommend her to any other couples looking for a very personal ceremony!

  • My husband has known Dana since high school, so what better way to have a truly personal ceremony. From the day I met Dana, I knew she was perfect for our wedding! She is so incredibly kind, sweet, and genuine. She crafted our ceremony just for us, based on responses we had given her. She presented us with a few different options on how the ceremony could go. She also helped us pick some readings that we loved in our ceremony. She gave us the ideas and had us sculpt the final product, which made it truly memorable and personal. We wrote back and forth until we came up with a final copy. Our guests raved on how wonderful and beautiful our ceremony was! We truly thank Dana for everything she did for us! We could not of asked for a better ceremony, it was absolutely perfect!

  • I feel so lucky to have met Dana through this crazy wedding planning process. She is incredibly kind, genuine, and sweet. She met with us and crafted the most personalized, perfect ceremony for us. I've been to many weddings where the ceremony doesn't necessarily feel like the star of the evening in comparison to the other elements (cocktail hour, reception, etc). In our case, because of Dana, I really feel like the ceremony stole the show! It was heartfelt, loving, and a perfect representation of my husband and I. Thank you so much, Dana!

  • Dana was hands down the best officiant I've ever seen at a wedding! I know, I'm a little biased because it was MY wedding, but I've been to many weddings, and nothing has compared to what Dana did. I've gotten so many compliments from some of our 200 guests saying how wonderful our wedding ceremony was because of Dana. People enjoyed her enthusiasm as well as how she personalized the ceremony for us. We obviously loved it too. From the moment she came to our apartment to meet my husband and I, to the moment she said goodbye to us on our wedding day, she was nothing but exceptionally kind and professional. I feel so lucky that I came across Dana because I couldn't have imagined my wedding ceremony going any better. If you're getting married- you need to call her right now. You won't regret it!!!

  • I don't know that I could say enough about the wonderful job that Dana did with our ceremony. We, and our guests, felt that Dana set the tone for the entire day by allowing us input on our wedding ceremony and helping us to iron out details that we hadn't even thought of. Dana was encouraging and welcoming, warm and funny and we are so glad we chose her to help us begin our new life together. Thank you Dana!!!!

  • Dana was wonderful! When a friend asked me what I was most looking forward to regarding the wedding, I responded "the ceremony!" I was so excited to see how Dana had taken our words and used them to create a wonderful ceremony - and she did not dissapoint. I would highly recommed Dana - she helped to make our day a beautiful one!
