  • We really lucked out when we found Yael to officiate our wedding! Meeting her felt like meeting an old friend - she made the conversation flow naturally and made us feel so comfortable. She seemed genuinely excited to get to know us and our story. We knew we wanted some Jewish traditions weaved throughout the ceremony which Yael was familiar with which was a plus. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect. She kept it short and sweet just like we wanted, but didn't leave anything out! She really nailed us and our story to a T! We couldn't be happier with our choice to have Yael officiate our wedding.
