  • We are so lucky that we found Rev. Francesca for our ceremony. It was very important to us to find an officiant who spoke both English and Italian as my husbands family was coming from Italy for the wedding. During our initial meeting with Rev. Francesca, both my husband and I knew she would be perfect. She was so sweet and took the time to get to know us over (the most delicious) cups of espresso. She understood exactly what we were looking for in our ceremony and promptly sent an outlined script of the entire ceremony. We only made a few changes to the script as her words were so beautiful and genuine. On the night of our rehearsal dinner, Rev. Francesca managed to wrangle a room full of loud Italians in order to run through the ceremony once before the big day. Our ceremony could not have been more perfect and it's because of Rev. Francesca. She takes the time to get to know you as a couple and it will make your ceremony so much more special. We are so grateful to have found h... Read more

  • Rev Francesca, was such a pleasure to hire. She is trilingual, and we needed Spanish and English ceremony, and she delivered! We aren’t too religious, but wanted to include something from the Bible, and she added a love poem. Her translations were spot on, she was so professional, she had an outline ready when we met, and was so open to add what we’d like. Day of the wedding, she spoke clear and was so warm, I get emotional just thinking how she married us. She was a delight, I highly recommend this woman to any future betrothed couple.

  • Francesca's presence and help during the entire process of our ceremony in New York was one of the best parts of our wedding experience. She made sure that our ceremony was personalized for us and gave us her time and ideas whenever we had questions or concerns. In addition, her vast knowledge of what to do after the ceremony was invaluable for legalizing our marriage. We could not have had a better experience with Francesca and would highly recommend her services to anyone considering an officiant in NYC. Francesca è stata una presenza fondamentale per la nostra cerimonia a New York. La cerimonia che ha scritto per noi è stata perfetta sia in italiano che in inglese, permettendo anche a chi non parlava inglese di seguire ed emozionarsi insieme a noi. Ci ha dato consigli preziosissimi per vivere serenamente i giorni precedenti al matrimonio, ed indicazioni molto precise su come legalizzare il nostro matrimonio per la trascrizione in Italia. Non avremmo potuto chiedere di meglio... Read more

  • We can't ask for a better Reverent! She was so sweet, professional and definitely made our day unforgettable! She designed the perfect speech for us after we met twice before the wedding. Since I'm Italian, I was looking for a bilingual ceremony for our guests and Rev. Francesca switched from Italian to English making the moments understandable and understandable for all. I definitely recommend her!

    Dear Elisa and Danny, Thank you. I was honored to marry you. It was a great ceremony. Meeting both your families was fun. I am glad that they could all understand your vows for each other. All my best, Rev. Francesca

  • Francesca was fantastic. We met up with her in a coffeeshop months prior to our wedding to meet in person and got a good vibe from her. Her Italian language skills came in useful as she recited a couple of Italian love quotes during our ceremony, much to the delight of our older Italian-American guests! She emailed us suggested vows and we tailored these, and also wrote our own short promises to one another. The ceremony length was perfect and we've received compliments on how personal it was, and how touching. She has a great speaking voice and a calming manner. She was of great help to my husband immediately before the ceremony as she turned up a good hour before and so could offer advice on layout (we had a park wedding with just a few chairs for pregnant/older guests) from her experience. Recommended!
