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. 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.

Rev. Stuart Chernoff was wonderful – he really allowed us to create a personal and special ceremony. Many people commented on what a beautiful ceremony it was, and we were so happy with the way it turned out.

We wanted to go non-traditional, humorous yet serious, custom for our Officiant. And Rev Stu was all that and more. He injected humor at the right time, walked us through the whole process, and most importantly, kept our ceremony perfectly short and to the point. Which lead to more time for the celebration! He is a really great laid back man and has a great sense of humor. You can’t go wrong with him!

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!
