  • So when it was time to find an officiant to marry me and my husband I didn’t know where to start until I found Hudson valley officiants and started to read reviews I came across Rev. Stuart and so many mentioned how he had a great sense of humor that automatically caught my attention we FaceTime a few times which was very convenient but the first time I spoke with him I already knew he was the one just thru his way of being his personality I couldn’t have made a better choice we loved our ceremony thank you Rev Stuart!

  • We hired reverend Stu for our wedding this past August and we could not have made a better choice. Reverend Stuart, my now husband and myself had a few FaceTime calls prior to the wedding for him to get to know us and our story a little better so he could write a ceremony that was truly catered to us individually. It had the standard, classic pieces we wanted, but he also added small bits and pieces that made it really special and unique. He sent it to us before hand to proofread and I had tears in my eyes. It was perfect. Everyone loved his ceremony, especially us! Reverend Stuart kept it interesting and kept us smiling and laughing as well as all of our guests, instead of putting them to sleep like at some ceremonies. I highly recommend reverend Stuart!

  • Where do I even begin?! Reverend Stuart was absolutely incredible at every level. He was personable, spiritual, professional and a wonderful human being. After marrying my younger sister and my brother in law, I knew he was special and I wanted him to perform my ceremony one day when I met my soulmate. The way he delivers the ceremony is absolutely perfect and magical After we talked to him the first time via FaceTime, we knew we wanted him to perform our ceremony and marry us. He made everything so easy and perfect. Anytime we wanted to talk to him he was available and was so personable and warm God bless Revered Stuart. When we renew our vows at 10 years we know who we will be calling. Thank you, thank you, thank you to Reverend Stuart.

  • When my husband and I were looking for a wedding officiant we didn’t know where to start to who to trust with this important task. We found Hudson Valley Ceremonies online. We read through some reviews and liked how responsive the company was with our inquires. We read several of the biographies of the officiants they provide and really liked Rev Stuarts. We facetimed with him a few times and we really liked his personality and his sense of humor. We discussed everything that was important to us as a couple and really wanted the ceremony to fit us. Rev Stuart did a fantastic job writing our ceremony. He really listened to what we wanted and it was perfect! My husband and I are not religious and we wanted the ceremony to be more about us as a couple and the love and friendship we share. The ceremony was sentimental, sweet, personal, and at times funny! It was exactly what we wanted. He even did a more unique Celtic ring ceremony that our guests loved! Reverend Stuart was pr... Read more

  • Rev Stu was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He knew exactly what we were looking for in our ceremony and was super helpful with his suggestions. He was able to personalize our ceremony so it came out perfectly. We wanted a short yet sentimental ceremony and Stu delivered! The day of he also provided a print of our vows which was so amazing! Definitely recommend to all future brides!

  • My husband and I knew Stu from growing up in the Woodstock area and always knew him as a fun, talented, and caring member of the local community. When we saw his name while looking for someone to officiate our Wedding at Onteora Mountain House, we recognized him immediately and knew he would just be the perfect fit. Neither my husband nor I are religious (although his mother's family is Jewish and I was raised in family of Italian catholics), so we knew we wanted a ceremony that respected all Faiths while remaining Agnostic. We had an initial meeting with Stu via Skype where we got to know him and learn about what he does -- he has a commitment to delivering a high-quality "show" that will pack an emotional punch while remaining light hearted and sweet. He has pages and pages of beautifully-worded, carefully-crafted ceremony ideas to help get you started in planning your ceremony. More than anything, his ceremony ideas showed us that he was able to create the perfect vibe for a cer... Read more

  • Rev. Stu was awesome! My brother used him and we loved him so much, we hired him too! We wanted a meaningful, yet simple and light ceremony and that's just what he gave us! He met with us before hand to get to know us a little and he put together the perfect ceremony!! We wouldn't have changed a thing! He kept it light, added some humor, but made our moment special! Everyone raved about how great he was! We would highly reccomend him to anyone!!! Thanks again, Rev. Stu!

  • Rev Stu was an absolutely wonderful part of our wedding day. He created a beautiful, intimate, and personalized ceremony and made sure that we were happy every step of the way. He'll work with you to make the exact type of ceremony you're looking for and make you feel comfortable and welcomed while doing so. We got so many compliments about our ceremony and Rev Stu specifically from our friends and family. You'll be so glad if you choose him!

  • Rev Stuart gave us the perfect short and intimate ceremony that we were looking for. My husband and I chose to the the Friend Officiates package through Hudson Valley Ceremonies - this allowed us to have a close friend of the family do a reading at our ceremony but we also had a small elopement style ceremony for just us and our parents to see. It may have been unconventional but it was what we really wanted. The ceremony he provided was meaningful but also upbeat and fun. Your wedding will fly by before you know it, so for us, it was important that we got to have a small moment together before the madness and Rev Stuart made this happen in the best way!

  • We had our wedding on October 8th, 2016 and we could not be happier with the outcome. Reverend Stuart worked with us every step of the way to customize every detail of our ceremony and then presented it to our family and friends with a mix of professionalism and levity that I doubt many could pull off. The Right Reverend (indeed!) helped us to not only celebrate our special day but he also helped to make it a memorable one. I recommend Rev. Stuart to anyone who is looking to make their wedding day memorable.

  • Reverend Stuart officiated our September wedding and we could not have been happier with our ceremony. He took time months before the wedding to speak with us, and really was able to get a sense of our values and what is important to us. He wrote us a beautiful and meaningful ceremony which spoke to who we are as individuals, and also as a couple. Our family and friends loved the ceremony are still talking about what a great ceremony we had. We highly recommend Reverend Stuart and were thrilled to have him officiate our wedding!!

  • We highly recommend Reverend Stu to be the officiant for your big day! Rev. Stu was professional while at the same time being down to earth, easy to talk to, and full of great ideas to make our vows personable and elegant. We met with Rev. Stu prior to the wedding and went over all the different options for how to customize our ceremony. Rev. Stu worked with us to incorporate all the details in the ceremony that were important to us and create a base that we could build from. We received a detailed document going over all aspects of the ceremony and a first draft of the vows. We then customized our vows and Stu worked all of our adjustments into the final draft. Rev. Stu performed the ceremony beautifully, spoke clearly, and added some cheerful humor to lighten the mood and make our wedding memorable. You will not be disappointed with Reverend Stu! Book him!!!

His lighthearted approach kept us smiling and laughing the whole time, and he helped us create a customized ceremony that involved our parents, and integrated the cultures from both sides of the family. Everyone felt included, and it was wonderful. Thank you!!
