What's included

As your officiant and rabbi, this is what you can expect from me. 

  • Three one hour meetings. If you are in Pittsburgh or Chicago, I would love to meet you in person. These meetings are for planning your special day and to talk about what to expect on the actual wedding day. If you are not in Pittsburgh or Chicago or are simply too busy to meet in person, the meetings will take place via Zoom. If three hours isn't sufficient, I am happy to spend more time with you. I want your wedding to be absolutely amazing. If this means spending more time together, let's do it. 

  • A document signing ceremony for the wedding party and immediate family. This is a ketubah and marriage license for Jewish ceremonies. For interfaith ceremonies, the document is a marriage license. 

  • A phone meeting approximately a week before the wedding to finalize details, ease any worries and reassure you that your wedding day is going to be absolutely wonderful. 

  • A custom tailored and authentic wedding ceremony of which both your beloved Bubby and your mother-in-law will be proud. And of course, a wedding ceremony that you'll fondly remember. 

If you would like the me to attend the rehearsal ceremony, an additional fee will be required. Please inquire.
