MY SERVICES AND FEES
Since I am a stand-up comedian, I specialize in creating wedding ceremonies with humor – but don’t worry, it won’t be a laugh a second…It’ll also be poignant and moving. I will happily send you passages from recent ceremonies I have done to see if my ceremony is what you’re looking for. I will also work with you to create a celebration that feels like it fits you.
I have performed and will continue to perform all kinds of ceremonies, ranging from 300+ attendee country club blowouts to ceremonies in Central Park or at the top of the Empire State Building with one attendee (to witness!).
I perform Jewish and Christian ceremonies (and Jews marrying Christians and Christians marrying Jews!) as well as same sex marriages (15% of my weddings are same sex!). I also do vow renewals, elopements, and second marriages (even third!).
The one common denominator is that no matter how big or small, what religion you are, or even how late you booked me, I will do my best to personalize the ceremony to the point that attendees will think we’ve been friends for years.
How I Work
Once you make the (genius) decision to use me as your wedding officiant, I start by emailing a questionnaire that asks about you (e.g. “What do you like to do together?”) and what kind of ceremony you’re looking for (e.g. “Are you writing your own vows?”). Based on your answers, I will probably have follow up questions.
We will also schedule a day to meet. That gives me an opportunity to learn more about you, see you interact, and get another cup of coffee. I also think it would be kinda weird if the first time we met was at the altar.
Finally, based on the questionnaire and our meeting, I will create a personalized ceremony. If you want to see the ceremony that I’ve written in advance, no problem! (Though most want to be surprised)
My rate depends on a variety of factors, like the time/day of the week of the ceremony, how far I am traveling and if I owe a payment for my kid’s pre-school tuition (joking!).
I will do my best to work within your budget.
