Simply the best. The attention to detail and professionalism is beyond all expectations. I cannot think any one factor that will make a wedding successful then having Jeanne and here team being involved in the planning and day of the most important day of a couples life the wedding! PS. What a pleasant person and a joy to deal with too.

Naomi Fay was a wonderful officiant! Also, we were happy with the way our invitation ordering process went, and HV Ceremonies gets you a great discount if you are already using them for the officiant!

Reverend Stuart B. Chernoff was our officiant on May 22, 2010. He took the time to get to know us as a couple as well as our parents. Once he had an idea of who we are and what we were looking for, he put together a beautiful, thoughtful ceremony. He asked many questions and allowed us to do the same. He was easy to speak to and he listened well. He was very flexible, answering our emails and phone calls promptly. Reverend Stu performed an elegant ceremony not only for us but also for my parents whom renewed their vows during the ceremony. We highly recommend Stu and Hudson Valley Ceremonies.

From the moment my wife and I met Jeanne, we loved her, she's such a doll and the BIGGEST help ever. From simple ideas, decorating, planning, she is the BEST hands down. She helped us plan our wedding and decorated our ceremony, and Rev. Stu married us. Stu and Jeanne will always have a special place in our heart, they are just great people, do anything to help anyone. It's neat too because since my wife and I are photographers in the area, we get to work with Jeanne often and will keep in touch over the years. If you have ANYTHING in question in regards to your wedding, just call Jeanne. She is very reasonable price wise and you will not find a kinder or more helpful person!

Hudson Valley Ceremonies was a wonderful solution for my wedding officiant. They were easy to work with and very professional, yet personal. Reverend Thomas Hickey was our officiant, and he was loved by one and all. Many young guests asked for his name. Reverend Hickey came to the rehearsal and the dinner. He gave a moving ceremony and stayed on to a part of the whole day. We loved him.Thank you so much for a perfect wedding.

To say that Jeanne Stark is a miracle woman is truly an understatement. Technically, she was our day-of-wedding coordinator for our July 10, 2010 wedding but she also helped us with invitations and kept in touch in the months leading up to the wedding. A month before our big day we did a walk-through with our caterer and Jeanne and we worked through a timeline for the day of the wedding, a to do list for things needed before the wedding and any other loose information. She followed up with all of this information and then helped us get in touch with all of our vendors, making sure everything was set... this was all PRE WEDDING. As far as the day of the wedding, she arrived at 10am and was there for us, non-stop, making sure everything was running on time, everything was set-up the way we wanted and was just there for any miscellaneous task we asked of her. For the actual wedding (ceremony and reception) she kept her eye on us the entire time, making sure everything was going okay, seeing if we needed anything etc. To say Jeanne is a miracle woman, is truly an understatement. She works harder than anyone to make your day memorable, special and exactly what you hoped it would be. Thank you for helping make our wedding a day that surpassed all of our wildest dreams!

I would absolutely recommend using Hudson Valley Ceremonies for any of their services. They are a joy to work with, they are professional with good communication. Having Jeanne Stark be the officiant at our wedding was the best decision we made. Not only did she assist us greatly with selecting our ceremony and vows but she added in one reading that absolutely fit us to a tee and ended up being our favorite part of the ceremony.

Hiring Jeanne was one of the most important decisions we made in planning our wedding. We could not have pulled it off without her!
— Loretta Chan
Rev Stu was the officiant that married us and we could not have chosen anyone better! The right person was truly sent our way! We are not religious, but are very spiritual people and Rev Stu came up with a service that was a beautiful reflection of exactly what we wanted. Plus he is a hip guy with a great style, and he fit in perfectly with the natural & unique wedding we wanted. What a great pick with Rev Stu!

It scares me to think what would have happened if we hadn't hired Jeanne from Hudson Valley Ceremonies. Even though she was technically only our "Day-of-Coordinator, " she really did so much more. Getting married at a private home was a lot of work, but Jeanne made is so much easier by being at the house when all of the rentals were delivered and coordinating their placement. She came to our rehearsal as well. And on the day of the wedding, she was the first one to arrive and the last one to leave... dealing with all the minor problems and making sure everyone was having a great time. For example, it wasn't until an hour into our reception that I discovered that our valet parkers just hadn't shown up - Jeanne took care of it without stressing me or the groom out. Hiring Jeanne was definitely the best decision we made during our whole wedding planning process!
