  • We saw Yael officiate a friends wedding and knew we had to have her for ours! She spends so much time, thought, and effort into writing the ceremony. Everyone thought we had known her for years- which is exactly how we felt at our friends wedding. Yael has the most amazing ability to personalize ceremonies to make it feel truly unique and special. I also worked with Yael in writing vows. She spent hours with me to write the most beautiful vows ever! Could not recommend her enough. She is the best!
