  • We were overjoyed that Stephen was our officiant! He was very responsive, thoughtful, and professional from the very beginning. He gave us helpful tips on how to frame and personalize our ceremony. Being an intercultural marriage, we wanted to incorporate a Chinese tea ceremony into our wedding to honor the bride's heritage. We were thrilled when we found out that Stephen actually had experiences traveling to China and had a good understanding of the Chinese culture and language! He wrote a wonderful introduction for our tea ceremony, and was able to incorporate both western and Chinese traditions into our ceremony. It was a perfect day! Thank you, Stephen!

    It was a perfect day, indeed! The "Spirit of Ethan Allen" cruise was a wonderful setting for your intercultural celebration - I was so please at how both families were included, giving equal weight to both languages and both cultural traditions... this says quite a bit about the kind of people your are, and the kind of relationship you share. 百年好合!
