Hello and congratulations on the next step in your journey. The wedding day is a celebration of your love with those closest to you. The ceremony while usually just a small portion of the day is the main reason for gathering - a chance to create a meaningful and important ritual of your union. As a Wedding Officiant, I instill an atmosphere of relaxation, humor, and honesty - including only what you want for your special day. I listen to your story and write a completely custom ceremony making it very "you," but a completely memorable experience.

I approach the ceremony from a secular/non-denominational place, but am happy to include anything from a religious tradition, if you have one. I also offer pre-marital counseling and a yoga practice designed for couples and/or their wedding parties.

Please contact me for a complimentary consultation to begin discussing the journey ahead. 917-504-4468 or hope@perfectunionNY.com Read less

Omg I love Hope! She was a blessing to my husband and I. She provided us with premarital counseling and was kind, interpersonal and made us feel as ease. We learned so much about each other and ourselves while meeting with Hope. I know she only provides premarital counseling but I would recommend her for any type of counseling! Thank you so much Hope, you are the absolute best!

We didn't use Hope as an officiant (we were married by a Rabbi), but we hired her to lead us in 4 pre-marital counseling sessions and are very happy we did. Any couple, no matter how strong, can benefit from the support of counseling. She helped us to talk through some challenges and gave us invaluable tools to make us better communicators and better partners. She was really thorough and great with follow-up to make sure that we were putting into practice the things we discussed and reflecting deeply. Counseling is not inexpensive, but it was worth every penny. In fact, I think it's probably one of the best wedding-related things you could spend your money on.

One important caveat is that Hope is not a psychologist or trained therapist, so if that is what you are looking for, she might not be right for you. But if you are looking for someone to help you talk through the big questions before the big day, Hope is amazing!

When my wife and I started our search for a wedding officiant, we didn’t know where to start. We didn’t want to put the burden of officiating our wedding on any of our guests or family members, but we wanted the ceremony to be personal and meaningful. Thankfully Hope was on our day of coordinator’s recommended list of officiants. My wife and I didn’t have a very clear picture of what we wanted our ceremony to look like, but we knew what we didn’t want it to look like. When we met with Hope, she shared the same views and really understood what we were trying to achieve. She sent us a questionnaire that required thoughtful responses to better understand my wife and me, and our relationship. We went through about seven drafts and the finished product was something special. It was a beautiful and personal speech that included humor and passion. Hope’s reading was clear and fluid, and her persona was calm and inviting. We highly recommend Hope!

My husband and I were thrilled with the ceremony that Hope Mirlis performed for us on 11/20/15. We met with her once in person, and then corresponded with her frequently over email right up to the day of our rehearsal. Hope did a wonderful job of listening to our various ideas for our ceremony and made recommendations, which helped us settle on something that represented us perfectly. She was articulate, passionate, expressive and humorous, which helped our ceremony come to life - it felt welcoming to our guests, deeply meaningful, and also light-hearted. More importantly, we had rave reviews from our guests! Some people even thought Hope must have been a close friend of ours, which speaks the most her passion for her work. We highly recommend her to all couples looking for a NYC wedding officiant!

Hope officiated our wedding earlier this month and we loved what she offered as options for our vows. It fit in well with our personalities and the feel we wanted for the wedding with personal touches as well. Several people commented on how much they liked her afterwards and I was so pleased with our choice. She is very friendly and easy to work with and I couldn't be happier with the way everything turned out!

We definitely made the right decision in choosing Hope as our ceremony officiant, pre-marital counselor, and yoga instructor! We had a great experience with Hope from our first email exchange to the quick follow-up post-wedding with our marriage certificate. We were looking for an officiant who would work with us on personalizing our ceremony and bring just the right amount of faith and spirituality into the ceremony. Hope fit this perfectly. Hope is very warm and personable and was also very responsive, offering her advice and feedback throughout the planning process. On the morning of the wedding, Hope led me and my three bridesmaids through a lovely yoga session that she customized to my preference, a perfect start to my special day! Our families all commented how eloquent and well-spoken Hope was during the ceremony. She was also very authentic and genuinely just as happy for us as our family and friends. We would recommend Hope to any couple!

If you are considering Hope for your ceremony, don't think another second. She is a true professional and made our day more than special. From our first meeting until our wedding day, she took care of every detail. There are things that come up that you don't even think of and Hope always had it covered. She created a ceremony that was authentic to us and very memorable for our guests. She can make the ceremony to whatever you dream it to be.
