  • 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.

    It was such a pleasure getting to know you and Michael and an honor to officiant your wedding ceremony. Everything was so very charming...the chapel, the music, the candle-lighting AND the tying of the 'lover's knot'! Your happiness was abundant and flowed through your guests and family members. It was all perfection on a gorgeous September day. Thank you for the privilege and your kind words.

  • 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.

    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.

  • We couldn't have asked for a better officiant, she made our day so special and took into account our personal stories, shared memories and represented us perfectly. It was everything we could have ever imagined or asked for.

    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!

    responded with the following comments.

    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!

  • We met Nancy for about 2 hours over dinner and after that, she knew EVERYTHING about the dynamics of our relationship. She did this 'interview' to custom craft a beautiful ceremony for my now wife and I. We let her have free reign to describe our love story and it was pretty breathtaking. Give Nancy a call and her personality shines through and she is just genuinely interested in the couples love story. At the end of the day, that's what its about, capturing and explaining the love the couple shares for one another.

    Thank you Seth and Caroline. Your stories filled my heart and made me laugh too. There was so much joy... it was bound to shine through in your ceremony. May it be your guiding light forever and always. Hearty congratulations and Mazel tov to you and your delightful families.

  • our ceremony was exactly how we envisioned it - thanks to the hard work and effort put in by nancy, our day was absolutely perfect. after all, the actual marriage is the whole reason you have a wedding! our initial meeting was lovely. it was laid back and filled with laughter. my husband and i left feeling great about our choice to have nancy officiate. she listened to our stories about how we met and how we got engaged, and our ideas for how we wanted the ceremony to go. she took detailed notes and made suggestions where necessary. her communication was excellent - prompt, detailed, and clear. when i told her about my wish to have a traditional hawaiian lei exchange, she made it happen. (and it was perfect!) the beauty of it all was that she lets the couple do as much or as little as they want while the ceremony is happening. she takes what you want and makes it a reality. absolutely everything i asked for was there during our wedding. she is flexible, funny, and lighthearted. we are ...

    Mahalo Kailyn! Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure getting to know you and Nick and working to deliver the kind of wedding you truly desired. We aim to please and if we got close to 'perfection' ...I am thrilled. I LOVED your beautiful venue and your ceremony was a delight...from your processional 'surprise' with your parents...to the exchange of those gorgeous Hawaiian leis! Beauty, fun and love were all on display as you wed before the people who love you best. Best to you both! Aloha

  • Hiring Nuptials by Nancy was one of the best decisions we made! From the first moment of contact to wedding day, Nancy was extremely helpful and responsive in the planning process. She wants to get to know you as a couple and hear your love story. Nancy crafted a beautiful and personalized ceremony for us that our families and guests are still talking about over a month later!

    responded with the following comments.

    I am humbled by your kind words Amanda. I WILL say however, that I'm still talking about your wedding as well. The vision of you and Mark waving farewell to your guests at the ceremony to get whisked away to the reception in a vintage boat is seared in my brain....as is your love story. Your new life is just beginning. Ahoy!

  • I can’t give Nancy and Chris enough praise! Nancy is truly wonderful, empathic, and a talented writer and orator. Eric and I are so happy we chose Nancy, and she helped craft the ceremony of our dreams! We got so many compliments. Do not hesitate- choose Nancy as your officiant on your big day- she will make it memorable, personal, and beautiful! Thank you again ❤️

    I am humbled Sarah by your high praise. Being a part of your and Eric's wedding was just a joy. There was a kind of depth to your story that was inspiring to me, but I was delighted that bit of humor and lightness shone through too! Promise you'll let me know how the 'wine tasting' on your first anniversary goes. Salut to you both!

  • When my husband & I were planning our big day, we knew that we wanted a nondenominational ceremony that just captured who were were as individuals & as a couple. Nancy was the best decision we ever could have made! She's extremely friendly & easy to talk to. After meeting with her, I knew we made the right choice! She nailed our ceremony!! So many of our guests came up to me throughout the night talking about how much they loved what she said. I couldn't have asked for a better officiant for the start to our forever! I would highly recommend Nancy for your big day! You wont regret it!

    Thank you Melissa! You and Ryan make a beautiful couple and beauty was certainly a prevailing theme at your ceremony. My love of wineries, warm weather and sumptuous wedding attire aside...it was a delight to relate your love story to your loving and enthusiastic guests and even more delightful to officially get you on your married way. Cheers to you both!

  • So let's just begin by saying the concept of paying a stranger to marry you is a little silly and only gets sillier as you realize you're about to open up to a complete stranger about yourself, your relationship and everything inbetween - just so they can get to know you and write a proper statement to announce your marriage. With that being said, Nancy and her partner have a way of making you feel at ease and ultimately any initial awkwardness seems to disappear as they welcome you to discuss yourselves and relationship. They are true, genuine people and it was a real pleasure chatting with them and opening up. The ceremony that Nancy put together for my husband and I was beautiful. It's not often that guests comment about how wonderful the ceremony was and how they teared up and really enjoyed it. It was a true celebration of US and our love. And I think that's what so great about Nancy and her services. :)

    responded with the following comments.

    I think you said it all Liz when you describe your wedding ceremony as a true celebration of YOU and your and Joe's love. THAT is certainly how I viewed it....and felt it. I am so pleased that came through for you and your guests. I DO tend to get couples to open up; it's the most wonderful part of officiating for me. I get to meet some incredible people and tell 'their story'! Thank you for allowing that honor.
