  • When my wife and I were looking for a rabbi in a pinch, a friend recommended Rabbi Kunstadt. We were so glad he did. In the months leading up to the wedding, Rabbi Kunstadt was personable yet professional. He made an effort to get to know us, and to understand what was important to us in our marriage and in our wedding. And he led a ceremony that was simple yet meaningful. In fact, a lot of our guests later commented on how impressed they were with the rabbi's approach to the ceremony. Wouldn't hesitate to choose Rabbi Kunstadt again, and highly recommend him.

  • The ceremony was hands down our favorite part of the wedding. Rabbi Kunstadt was thoughtful, well spoken, and made everyone feel comfortable. Highly recommend for anyone else doing a reform or interfaith wedding!

  • Rabbi Kunstadt married us this past May in a beautiful ceremony in Montecito. From the moment we connected with the Rabbi, he was friendly, responsive, and flexible. He met with us a few times, wanted to get to know us on a personal level, sent us helpful reading material, engaged in pre-marital counseling, and comprehensively answered all of our questions. He also agreed to co-officiate our wedding with a judge who I used to work for, and was amenable to creating a service that would fit our needs. He worked with the judge to finalize that service. I highly recommend the Rabbi for future weddings -- he has a lot of experience with weddings and is just all around great!

  • Rabbi Donald Kunstadt was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. From the first introductory phone call, he made us feel comfortable and like we were in good hands. It was particularly important to us that we both felt comfortable because it was an interfaith wedding. It was also important to us that each Jewish tradition was explained so that it was accessible to the entire group - and he did this beautifully, even better than we expected. I had family come up to me afterwards and comment on this specifically. Rabbi Kunstadt was open and flexible to changes and additions we wanted to make to the ceremony and he even added his own thoughtful/personal touches to the ceremony including a few words about our story/journey as a couple. We couldn’t be happier with Rabbi Kunstadt and the beauty he added to our day! We highly recommend him without hesitation.

  • Rabbi Kunstadt was very easy to work with. We first had an introductory call with him, then an in-person meeting, and finally an additional planning call. He also provided a helpful pre-marriage counseling session. He was quite sincere and made a strong effort to get to know as a couple. He was punctual and performed a great ceremony. We're very thankful for his officiating and highly recommend him.

  • Finding Donald was one of our favorite parts of our wedding. Donald is a special person and we feel very lucky to have have him officiate our ceremony. We met with Donald a couple of times before the wedding and immediately felt comfortable and knew his practicality and demeanor was perfect for us. Donald was kind, attentive and truly interested in getting to know my wife and I as people and the foundations our relationship was developed, which was key to his development of a beautiful and personal ceremony. Donald was adaptive to our religious preferences and found a perfect mix of religion and culture while adding personal touches along the way. We have nothing but 5 stars for Donald and if you have come across this review you are lucky to have found him and I can absolutely guarantee that you will have made the right choice in utilizing his services.

  • We didn’t leave ourselves much time to select a Rabbi. In fact, we booked our venue a bit over a month away with no-one to officiate. Fortunately for us, we came across Donald. He was prompt in responding and very detailed in helping us tie up loose ends. The ceremony was distinctly more personalized than we were expecting and, for lack of a better word, fun! We’d highly recommend Rabbi Kundstadt and thank him for helping make our wedding such a memorable experience.

  • Rabbi Kunstadt performed our wedding on June 11, 2017 at the Santa Barbara Courthouse, and it was such a wonderful experience. My husband and I live in Irvine, so we met with Donald a few times beforehand to get to know one another. My husband is Jewish and I come from a family that didn't really focus on anything and Rabbi was great about making the ceremony interfaith and comfortable for both sides of our guests. He helped us stay relaxed and answered all of our questions along the way. He clearly cares about what he is doing and made the ceremony personalized and easy going - he had all our guests laughing. I would highly recommend Rabbi Kunstadt to anyone that is looking for an interfaith marriage ceremony and wants someone to help make it a little more personalized and fun!

  • My wife and I couldn't be more pleased with Rabbi Kunstadt enough! In the months preceding our wedding, he scheduled meetings with us, and took excellent notes on everything we wanted and didn't want for our special day. Being an interfaith marriage couple, he sprinkled in traditions for both of our families and limited our ceremony to leaning too much into one faith. His responsiveness, professionalism, and flexibility did not go unnoticed. Our ceremony went off without any problems, and we couldn't have been more pleased!

  • Open-minded and kind, Rabbi Donald officiated a ceremony that was tailored to our preferences yet still true to Jewish tradition. He earned rave reviews from our whole crowd, both Jewish and not. Prior to the day-of, we enjoyed his counseling. The exercises were fruitful and Donald's advice was relevant. We highly recommend him.
