  • One of the hardest parts of planning our wedding was choosing an officiant that would fit our young, goofy yet loving personalities, and be able to blend our unique story with Jewish traditions. When we met Yael, we knew she was exactly what we were looking for. Yael does her homework. We met for dinner one night and she interviewed us for over an hour. She put together a beautiful ceremony, which explained all the Jewish traditions, included her own commentary on our love story, and she told it all in a beautiful, soothing voice that had the entire crowd both in tears and fits of laughter. Many people have remarked it was the most beautiful ceremony they ever witnessed.
