  • Ruth officiated our wedding and we couldn't have been happier. We were looking for someone to officiate who had some Jewish background but was flexible with the traditions as we wanted to have our own unique ceremony. Ruth was able to provide that and more. She made the ceremony very personalized for my husband and I. Prior to the big day, she was also very helpful during the whole process and was super accommodating in our requests of what to include and not include. Thanks again Ruth for making our big day special!
