  • Music, poems, readings, prayers and blessings
“We were looking for an officiant who could tell our story while incorporating earth-based and spiritual elements. Denise does it all and then some! This was a new process for us, she made us feel so special from day one and made time for all our inquiries from beginning to end. The final product was a masterpiece ceremony which we will hold in our hearts forever.”
Jennifer R., married at Larkfield Manor
“Tara officiated my wedding. My husband and I got so many compliments on our ceremony – everyone said it was such a standout among the other weddings they had been to recently. She brought a fresh take to what can sometimes feel like a formality or a precursor to the party and made it into its own main event. She was
endlessly kind, professional, respectful and listened carefully to our wishes.”
Krista E.
“It was a great experience to be able to collaborate with Denise to create the perfect ceremony for me and my husband. She incorporated our “jokes” perfectly, and had the crowd laughing and crying at all the right times. All of our guests complimented Denise’s abilities, delivery and beautiful words. I also loved how she was very open and made sure we felt comfortable with the whole ceremony, and that there were no surprises.”
Stephanie & Brennan, married at The Vineyards at Aquebogue
“I cannot over emphasize enough, how much Denise’s professionalism and expertise worked to create the most magical and personally meaningful wedding ceremony. We wanted a spiritual but non-denominational ceremony, one that honored what we see as a very sacred union, but one that also conveyed the lightness and joy; Denise had such an intuitive grasp of what energy and emotion we wanted to experience and created a ceremony that was everything we could have wished for.”
Catherine & George, married at their Private Residence
