“The perfect officiant for our wedding.”

Rabbi Sara Shonfeld was the perfect officiant for our wedding. We are Jewish though not super religious and it was the best balance of traditional and personal/non-traditional elements. She spent a LOT of time making our ceremony so beautifully personalized. Many of our guests raved that it was the best ceremony they’ve attended and some even thought Sara was our relative because it was so personal. You can just feel Sara’s warmth and kindness as she speaks. I couldn’t imagine anyone doing as good of a job. Even as the bees swarmed our heads the whole ceremony she kept her composure and executed flawlessly!! Thank you so much Sara for a wonderful Ketubah signing and flawless wedding ceremony that we will cherish along with our family and friends always.

“I felt it was an easy process.”

Rabbi Sara was so helpful throughout the process of planning my wedding. She always responded quickly with all my questions and requests. I felt it was an easy process. I had an Interfaith ceremony and it went so smoothly. She worked very well with the priest we had and he said he would work with her again. All my guests commented on the unique ceremony as a lot of them had not seen an Interfaith ceremony, and they were all positive! Would highly recommend using Rabbi Sara!

“She was perfect”

Sara officiated our non-religious wedding at a venue and she was perfect. She is very friendly easy going, and nice to work with. She’s a great listener. She responds to emails quickly. She was able to work with our changes and sent us a final draft quickly. She showed up early on wedding day. Straight to the point and had a good voice. Thanks Sara!

“We are so happy that she was such a big part of our special day!”

My wife and I were so lucky to find Rabbi Sara! She was recommended to us by our venue (Westbury Manor). She was warm and friendly and helped guide us through the process of creating our wedding ceremony. She made the ceremony very personal, while incorporating the traditional elements that were important to us as a Jewish same-sex couple. So many of our guests commented on how special and moving the ceremony was and what an amazing job Rabbi Sara did. We are so happy that she was such a big part of our special day!

“Sara helped to make our wedding day very special!”

Sara helped to make our wedding day very special! Very receptive to our wishes of what we wanted to include in the service and creative ways of making this happen. So many of our guests loved the service and Sara! One couple who are married over 50 years and have been to many weddings together said that ours was the best they had ever been to. Sara helped to contribute to that.

“It wouldn’t have been the same without her!”

Rabbi Sara helped make our wedding day extraordinary! She provided us with so much support and advice throughout the planning process. Rabbi Sara was sincerely interested in our story and getting to know us as people, and as a couple. Every meeting with Rabbi Sara felt like we were meeting with an old friend. She payed careful attention to detail, and when it came time for the ceremony, she delivered the service with genuine love and thoughtfulness. It truly reflected who we are and what we wanted our ceremony to represent. We received so many compliments on the uniqueness and sincerity of our ceremony. It wouldn’t have been the same without her!
