Hi Rev Studio Stu,Thanks again for officiating our ceremony on Nov 19th. It was perfect and exactly what we wanted.. which is quite remarkable because we started without knowing what we wanted. Your laid back style and insightful suggestions were a perfect fit for us.Thanks again!

Rev. Stuart is fantastic! He is very easy going and easy to talk to. My ceremony was perfect-short and sweet-just the way I wanted it. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone I know getting married!
Reverend Stu was perfect! He worked with us to create the perfect ceremony. Throughout the planning process I never had any trouble getting in contact with him if I had any questions or concerns. We could not have found a better officiant for our special day!!!!!

Stuart Chernoff was absolutely wonderful officiating our wedding!! He was a true professional and a tremendous help during the planning process. The ceremony he wrote was amazing. As a matter of fact, I had a couple of friends and family members that thought he had known us for years! We had many positive comments and would recommend him to anyone.
Thanks so much! Stacey and James
Rev Stu was the officiant that married us and we could not have chosen anyone better! The right person was truly sent our way! We are not religous, but are very spiritual people and Rev Stu came up with a service that was a beautiful reflection of exactly what we wanted. Plus he is a hip guy with a great style, and he fit in perfectly with the natural & unique wedding we wanted. What a great pick with Rev Stu!
Reverend Stuart B. Chernoff was our officiant on May 22. He took the time to get to know us as a couple as well as our parents. Once he had an idea of who we are and what we were looking for, he put together a beautiful, thoughtful ceremony. He asked many questions and allowed us to do the same. He was easy to speak to and he listened well. He was very flexible, answering our emails and phone calls promptly. Reverend Stu performed an elegant ceremony not only for us but also for my parents whom re-newed their vows during the ceremony. We highly recommend Stu and Hudson Valley Ceremonies.
Stu was Fantastic! Everyone commented on the ceremony and how wonderful it was. Thank You So Much for making my precious daughter and new son-in-law’s wedding a huge success.
