  • Nancy officiated our Jersey Shore wedding and simply transformed it into the magical day that it became. From scheduling our pre-wedding meeting, to guiding us through all the steps and explaining the paperwork, to getting all set up on the day of alongside her lovely husband, Chris, she took care of the details and listened to our story to craft an absolutely beautifully written ceremony. We knew we were in good hands from the moment she began. She found and quoted literature we love that completely matched us as a couple, creatively placed the readings we chose, and inserted surprise personal touches we never saw coming. Nancy was also careful to hit just the tone we wanted: composed and momentous with a hint of humor and fun. She is also such a professional when it comes to public speaking and made us feel completely at ease. With all the outside stresses a wedding can bring, it's important to focus on the most significant moment of the day and Nancy completely created it and made ... Read more

    Dear Maeve, There were tears at your wedding and now tears in my eyes as I read your kind and gracious words. It truly was a magical day and in the end....meant to be. Your families were a delight to work with (they were enthusiastic participants in their ceremonial roles...so that was a plus!) and I was so happy to get even more insight into your and Aggie's love and lives from their perspective too. You are a beautiful couple in so many ways...some might even say in both 'body and soul." SL'AINTE!

  • We hired Nancy with only a month to go, after having to move our wedding from Virginia, but she made it work! We did a consultation over Zoom and answered a quick questionnaire and despite Nancy only knowing us for a month, one of our guests asked, "So is she a family friend? She really knew you guys." Our wedding ceremony was customized to us and felt like us, incorporating some of our favorites readings. My mom said she was so caught up in listening to everything Nancy said that she didn't even have a chance to cry! I can't recommend Nancy enough.

    I too feel like I've known you for ages, Alexa. Thank you (and your mom) for your kind words. Being able to 'marry' you and Sal was a distinct pleasure and honor and I was thrilled that I was able to assist you in your 'backup' wedding ceremony. Your secret garden was simply perfect and the weather...divine. Your steadfast love and commitment to one another is an inspiration and you both deserve the best life has to offer. May your marriage and your futures be as beautiful as the day you wed.

  • We wanted a personal and intimate ceremony that really reflected who we are. Nancy brought that and more. She has poise and kindness in her words. We're still talking about them even a week later! We couldn't be more pleased with how she really understood who we are and what we are about. Thank you so much Nancy for everything! You made our day a dream!!

    I have to say, Lisa...I myself felt like I was walking into a dream the day of your wedding. Everything was ethereal...the tablescape...the weather...your gorgeous veil! You and Wes and your families were the epitome of love and family on a stunning autumn afternoon. It was my honor and pleasure to be a part of your story; I certainly want to hear the upcoming chapters! Thank you for your kind words. All the best to you for years to come.

  • Nancy is absolutely amazing. She requested a face-to-face meeting with us to prepare for the wedding, which honestly, I didn't think was necessary at first. After meeting with her, I realized the method to her madness. In that discussion, she really got to know us as a couple. By the end of it, Nancy knew our love story front-to-back (high school sweethearts, so a lot to digest.) Having years of experience, she asked us questions that I would have never thought of (preferred tone of wedding, is bride taking grooms name, anything to not mention, etc.) After the ceremony, everyone was coming up to us and complimenting on how amazing the ceremony was, and also asking how we knew Nancy (assuming that we must be close friends, considering the number of close/personal details she spoke of.) Everyone was shocked to learn that she was able to deliver such a beautiful, magical, and personalized ceremony after having spoken to us only a handful of times. Nancy takes this very seriously, and righ... Read more

    Well Jacob, I am humbled by your review and so happy that you and Christina were pleased with your ceremony. It was a joy to learn about your love story put it all together for your 11//8 wedding. You're absolutely right...there is a method to my 'madness' ! You two are a delight and an inspiration; that is what makes me love what I do so much. May the magical feelings of your wedding day last your entire marriage!

  • Nancy, along with her husband took the time to talk to us and get to know us both as a couple and individually. She made sure that the ceremony fit us, just not cookie cutter. She was professional and experienced, making the process easy! Absolutely recommend! A week later and people are still complimenting Nancy and the ceremony! Thank you.

    It was such a delight to officiate your garden wedding Kim and Sean! I hope the love and laughter that dominated the day (along with the sunshine!) made any stresses of date and venue changes just melt away. For me, seeing the smiles on your faces and those of your guest was just a joy. Thank you for your kind words and a special thanks for Sean for kicking off the proceedings with his "Metallica" processional. You truly set the stage for some fun!

  • I highly, highly reccomend Nancy as your wedding officiant! She really feels passionately about making sure your wedding ceremony fits you personally as a couple. She meets with you beforehand and gets to you know you both and finds out what you are looking for out of your ceremony. When we read her sample vows that she sent us, they were perfect! We couldn't have written them better ourselves. She was always available via email or text, any time of the day, and always promptly responded to any of my concerns or questions. During the wedding ceremony, she included sweet stories and personal words that my husband said about me and vice versa. It was beyond beautiful. My husband was very emotional before I walked down the aisle (and after) and Nancy was so supportive. She was there for him and that meant so much. It was the sweetest and most thoughtful ceremony. I can't say enough good things about Nancy. Her prep, her ceremony, her presentation, her voice...it was all AMAZING! More perf... Read more

    Thank you for your incredibly kind words, Amanda. Your wedding date will forever be seared into my brain. Even knowing that 13 is Nick's lucky number, no one could have foreseen the kind of luck that came your way on Friday, March 13, 2020. Not only were you two able to actually proceed with your original plans on the very cusp of a global lockdown (whew!)...Mother Nature was on your sides as well offering up a little late winter sunshine to further brighten the occasion and warm our hearts. You and Nick make quite a team and I was beyond pleased to have a part in making your ceremony a success. May luck and love continue to be in abundance through the years.

  • We had the pleasure of having Nancy officiate our October 2019 wedding. From the start, Nancy was kind, supportive and accommodating. She was professional and offered the best and honest advice throughout our planning process. Nancy truly took the time to get to know us and asked the right questions, creating the most perfect speech for our big day. Our ceremony was perfect because of Nancy, where she made us laugh and cry tears of joy with her words. Even our guests raved about her, asking us how we knew her and calling her “fantastic”. Nancy, thank you for everything you’ve done for Tom and I. I couldn’t have asked for a better officiant. We truly appreciate you being a part of our special day!

    I truly loved officiating your wedding. There were emotional moments to be sure that were lightened by laughter and love and that gorgeous, filtered October sunshine. Your journey continues! I wish you only the best in your travels through life. You deserve it.

    Your kind words mean a great deal to me, Kimberly. It was a pleasure to get to know you and Matt and officiate your beautiful wedding. Gorgeous dresses and that Atlantic Ocean backdrop aside...the true beauty came from within a bride and groom whose love shone through like that October sunshine. I wish you a thousand years of happiness!

  • Nancy is AMAZING! She is the right woman for the job. I loved the fact that she took the time to meet with us in person to get to know us and somehow magically made the most personal, continental yet somewhat funny ceremony for us. She said all the right things and customized the ceremony to fit how we wanted it to feel and flow. My only regret is that I didn’t have a videographer to capture it on video!! I would highly recommend her she is professional, personal, and caring. Best experience I could have asked for.

    responded with the following comments.

    Thank you so very much for your enthusiastic review Kaitlyn. Your and Nico's wedding was truly a sublime evening in a stunning location. I understand your post-wedding desire for a video but I will say there are moments from your ceremony that are seared in my brain. I do believe there was magic in the air that night in Long Branch. I wish you and your families all the happiness in the world.

    Thank you Natalie and Jaxon for the honor and privilege of officiating your ceremony. You are a beautiful couple...inside and out as they say!! Your love and devotion to one another is so apparent it was actually easy to capture in words. (and photos...though I admit to not be quite sure as to what transpired in the moment the pic of Jaxon and me was snapped!) Enjoy your new roles of husband and wife (and best friends). It suits you well.

  • Nancy did such a beautiful job personalizing our ceremony that our family thought she knew us! She took the time to get to know us before the ceremony and personalized the wedding to fit our story and the things we care about. We were extremely happy with how the ceremony turned out, and we highly recommend Nuptials by Nancy. A week after the wedding, our family still can't stop talking about how amazing she was!

    How wonderful to hear, Erica! It was such a delight getting to know you and A.J. Your wedding was so lovely and your families were welcoming, warm and funny! You did more than just glow on your wedding day....you sparkled! It was a distinct pleasure officiating your ceremony. Love, laughter and poetry came together to make a bit of early Christmas magic. All the best in the new year....and ALL the years!
