Preparing for your wedding needs to be an enjoyable time. We work with you to design your ceremony with minimal stress and some guaranteed laughs and tears of joy. We provide sample ceremonies, you can choose parts of the ceremonies that you like to create a ceremony that expresses you as a couple, which becomes the base to the ceremony. Then our officiants personalize each ceremony to make it exactly what you like. Ultimately you have the final decision on the wording of the ceremony. Our couples always receive the draft of the ceremony and can choose to make any changes to the wording.
Along with performing the ceremony we specialize in being your ceremony coordinator. As the ceremony coordinator we arrive approximately 1 hour prior to ceremony, assist guests, help the wedding party participants with attire and flowers, coordinate with other ceremony vendors to create unity and assist with any needs of the couple. Suitable rituals can be incorporated, such as the unity candle, breaking the glass, Celtic tartan wrap or jumping the broom.

The first communication I had with the company is the personnel in their office. Their associates are very responsive, caring, and friendly. They sent friendly reminders of upcoming bills, and sent holiday and congratulatory emails. After working with their office, I communicated very frequently with my wedding officiant, Brother Mike Lopez. He was by far the most qualified person to officiate our wedding. He was very flexible and always arrived half hour before our meeting times so we would never have to wait on him. He sent us routine text messages in the weeks before the wedding just to check up on us and reassure us that everything would turn out perfect. We custom built our ceremony with Mike so that it was everything that we could every dream of. Whenever I was feeling nervous about our big day, I could just shoot Mike a text and he would put those feelings at east. At the reception, he fit right in with my family, and everyone loved him.
I definitely would recommend Hudson Valley Ceremonies to any other bride to be, and especially Brother Mike Lopez.
Oh, and by the way, for a wedding in New York City on New Year’s day, the price was a STEAL.

We booked Reverend Stuart Chernoff through Hudson Valley Ceremonies and are so glad we did! He met with us to discuss what we wanted for the ceremony and made us feel comfortable right away! After he got an idea of everything we wanted, he sent us so many different options that were specified to what we wanted and made our ceremony all about us. After the ceremony so many of our guests told us how amazing it was and how he did such a wonderful job. We would definitely recommend Rev. Stu and are so happy with our decision to have him as our officiant!

I could not be happier with the officiant that I hired through Hudson Valley Ceremonies. I was lucky enough to have worked with Debra Romano, who was wonderful. Due to a falling out with our original officiant, my husband and I went through HVC 2 months prior to our wedding to find a new officiant. Debra quickly set up meeting time and got to know us. She was always available by e-mail and phone whenever I had questions, concerns, or just had to talk about things going on. Because of her, our ceremony was what many of my guests described as the most wonderful, meaningful, spiritual ceremony they had every attended. It was not to long, but it was extremely personal and welcoming. I will never be able to thank Debra enough for making our ceremony absolutely unforgettable.
