  • Jeff preformed our ceremony a few weekends ago, and was wonderful. He allowed us to personalize our ceremony, and really make it ours. We wanted a "civil ceremony", neither of us are religious, and Jeff's suggestions were exactly what we needed. He arrived on time to both the rehearsal and the ceremony, was assertive enough to corral all of our family members and friends during the rehearsal, which is not a small task. I would recommend Jeff to any couple who is really looking to make the ceremony their own. Thank you Jeff!

  • Reverend Maszal was amazing. We had a complex ceremony that involved the blending of two cultures. Reverend Maszal was really helpful in mapping out the ceremony with us. We were able to blend my family's Indian traditions with the traditions of my husband's family. Reverend Maszal made sure we were all very comfortable with ceremony and on the day of wedding really took charge in making sure everything was as it should be for the ceremony. We can't thank him enough for making our special day so wonderful!!

  • Jeff was the BEST!! The most talked about portion of our wedding was the ceremony and how well it was officiated. If you want one less item to stress about - I would highly recommend Jeff's services.

  • Jeff was absolutely fantastic when it came to every aspect of our wedding ceremony. We knew from the moment that we met him that he was perfect for us, he is a genuinely friendly person who made us feel incredibly comfortable throughout the process. Jeff was very knowledgable and offered us a huge variety of options and advice for our ceremony, from very traditional all the way to a Buddhist ceremony! He offered so much insight and help while I was designing our ceremony, I don't know that I could have done it without him. At the rehearsal, he was indispensible. He really made us feel that we were ready to go on with this show, giving us answers to questions we hadn't even asked or considered (how to put the ring on smoothly, etc) and keeping everything upbeat and FUN. Every single person in our familes/bridal party absolutely adored him. Jeff executed our ceremony on the day of so beautifully, creating a strong presence but never overshadowing us. I definitely reccommend working with ... Read more

  • Jeff was an absolute pleasure to work with. We felt comfortable within minutes of meeting him and knew that he would provide an unforgettable ceremony. Jeff provided many examples of different wedding ceremonies and then worked with us to create the most perfect ceremony to fit our style. During the actual ceremony, he combined humor and wit with sincerity and compassion. We would recommend him to all other couples without hesitation!

  • We can't say enough good things about Jeff! During our initial meeting, he really took the time to get to know us, and our story, and seemed genuinely interested. He kept in constant contact with us in the months leading up to the wedding, and worked with us to create a unique, beautiful ceremony. He is a wonderful speaker, and as a result, our ceremony was perfect. We got so many compliments from guests on the ceremony.....both because it wasn't so long that they started to fall asleep, and because it was like no other ceremony they had ever heard.

  • Jeff was a very caring man. From the first e-mail to our first phone conversation to finally meeting him the day of my big event he was very sweet, kind, caring and making my day special was very important to him. We have a private outdoor wedding at my parents house and he was able to do it on our special date of 10-10-10 at 10:10am. We even used him again in April with the Christening of our little girl. He made all of the nerves and emotions go away because he made us very comfortable. I would recommend him to anyone. He will make your special day very important and meaningful. Thank you Jeff.

  • We are so lucky to have found Jeff. Officiants can be a little odd, so we were struggling. But Jeff was so friendly and open to our ideas, that we knew we would hire him as soon as we left our first meeting. He is a very cool guy and has lots of experience. He provided us with templates to pick and choose from wedding traditions, blessings, reading, vows, etc. But he was also happy to incorporate our ideas into the ceremony. He is also is very quick to respond to emails which is great. I wasn't up there, but I heard he was cracking jokes and keeping the guest entertained while the bridal party took a little extra time to get to the ceremony. Everyone loved him and they loved our ceremony. Jeff is great and we highly recommend him!

  • Jeff was very professional and open to all my ideas. You can tell he is experienced and expert on what he does. Our families were moved during our ceremony and it is because of Jeff. If you come across his site, look no further, Jeff is the person for you and make your wedding day memorable!

  • Jeff was wonderful to work with. My husband and I were a little intimidated at first to meet with an officiant to go over things since this, of course, was our first time and also since we are Buddhists. Jeff made us feel very comfortable. He was very genuine and listened to our needs and took very good notes. Jeff is extremely experienced. He knew exactly what questions to ask and brought things up that my husband and I would never have even thought of. He was a true professional. He respected our Buddhist faith and made awesome recommendations. Although he made recommendations, we ultimately made the decision on what we wanted. He also conducted our rehearsal, which is for an additional cost, but totally should be booked. We were nervous enough on our wedding day, by rehearsing, it was one less thing to worry about. I can't say enough how wonderful the ceremony turned out. It was the exact length we wanted, conveyed the exact message we wanted and touched everyone in such a special w... Read more

  • I can't recommend Jeff enough. From the first time we met him, he provided us with fantastic advice on our ceremony, was professional, humorous and personable that we immediately knew he was perfect for us. Both my husband and I were so grateful that we found the right person. Neither one of us are from this area and couldn't afford to fly my minister in. We wanted the same personable and meaningful ceremony though. I had looked for nearly two weeks about 1-3 hours a day to find the perfect officiant that could accomodate both my husband and my views as well as give us a ceremony instantly meaningful, personable and memorable. Tall order to achieve for a discerning bride, but Jeff was absolutely fantastic every step of the way. I'll never forget how he discretely slipped me a handkerchief mid-ceremony (I didn't have one since I was convinced I wouldn't need it) and my husband forgot his. If you've been searching for an officiant - Jeff should be on your short list for interviews.

  • Jeff is professional and has a lot of experience so if anything doesn't go as planned, he'll go with the flow and make things work. He's also very responsive. We met with him prior to hiring him and he also officiated our rehearsal. Jeff provided us with various wording examples which we used along with other resources to put together our own wording. The ceremony was beautiful and we're very happy we hired Jeff. We definitely recommend him.

  • Jeff as great to work! He was very quick to answer questions we had leading up the wedding as well as ones we had on the wedding day. Jeff has a great sense of humor also that made us feel very comfortable with him and made our ceremony go smoothly. He was very flexible in working with us on our rehearsal day since our wedding was on a Sunday. His assistant that came out was fantastic and very organized and prepared us just as Jeff would have if he had been there. Jeff is very organized as well as well as professional about everything. He worked with us to create our own ceremony - we were able to add in or take out features of the traditional ceremony so we could make it our own. We were extremely happy with our ceremony and with Jeff. :)

His professionalism and ability to keep us in check/on track was greatly appreciated. We received lots of comments from our guests on how much they enjoyed it. Jeff was willing to work with us and incorporated all of our requests. He really made it feel like it was "our" ceremony.
