Welcome! I am an ordained, licensed interfaith minister who goes beyond traditional limits to help you create the most unique, loving, and personal wedding you have ever wanted or dreamed of. This ceremony is the cornerstone of your marriage, and it should reflect who you are, your unique relationship, and include those you love. You will be amazed and delighted by how creative you can be on this, your special day. I will work and be with you with great care and joy.


I feel that the best way to know if you and your officiant are a good match is to talk in person. Rather than give you an abundance of information that you don't need or want, I will happily share my life, history, education, experience, philosophy or anything else you want to know (except my weight--yes, I will reveal my age) if you ask.

What you should know about me is that I have a big warm heart, infinite creativity, and I care very much about helping you to have the most joyous and magical ceremony you can imagine. I am thoroughly capable and professional and will listen to your wishes. I can create any type of ceremony that you want, and include any spirituality, heritage, or aspect you wish to express. I am exceptionally intuitive, and I can offer many suggestions that might appeal or inspire you. My vision is expansive and all-inclusive. I see, listen, and care.

I serve all people--all faiths, traditions, orientations. I have always seen what unites us at the core, rather than what separates us. What is important is the love between you, and the people you are choosing to include in your day. Every couple has their own essence, and expressing this in their ceremony is an artistic and loving endeavor.

I would be honored to be your partner in creating your ceremony for your special day. Read less

My fiancé (now wife) and I are very particular people. We wanted a custom ceremony, that was delicate given some "unusualness" but at the same time, preserve the classic and authenticity of what a marriage was and is. Dr. Gross delivered "EXACTLY" - and we meant that very much, exactly as we asked for and described to her. She puts the couple first!

Look no further! Sheila is the ultimate wedding officiant if you are looking for a heartfelt emotional personal ceremony. There wasn't one single guest at our wedding who didn't comment on how amazing our ceremony was. Sheila met with us for four hours and delivered a ceremony as if she knew us a lifetime. Simply incredible. We not only found a beautiful soul to conduct our wedding ceremony - but a friend we now hold dear.

Thank you Sheila for making our wedding one that our guest will remember and a memory that will live in our hearts forever!

Sheila was the highlight of our wedding night. After having issues planning our wedding prior to finding her here on WeddingWire, we were thrilled and relieved the moment we first met with her. She does such a wonderful job of making you feel welcome, and personalizes your ceremony rather than reading from a script. She spent so much time talking with us and learning more about our story, and when she lead the ceremony her beautiful writing came together and made the night so magical. Sheila is extremely communicative, accommodating, professional, compassionate, and truly one of a kind. If you're getting married, my husband and I couldn't recommend Sheila any higher!

Where do i start when you have such great things to say all at once. Well Sheila was just amazing. From the moment we met her until our ceremony on our wedding day. We first met sheila at her home and we felt connected. She asked us very deep questions as she wrote everything down. After she went over our story from what we told her. She also helped us express certain feeling verbally. She brought our love from within our hearts and recited it back to us. Anytime we needed Sheila she was avalible to talk. She is very responsive from the moment we met her. My main focus was my wife and our love story as well as two fathers i have lost, it was hard planning a wedding while losing people that mean the world to me. She SURE brought there memories back to everyone. We cried and laughed but most of all we had a great experience doing so... (getting married! )I will forever thank Sheila for her amazing delivery. She is the person to contact when u want ur love story to really come to life and when u want many others to understand the root of ur love. You will not be disappointed working with Sheila.

My husband and I wanted a ceremony that would be different from the rest and Sheila definitely achieved that! From that moment we contacted Sheila, she was very accommodating, friendly, and helpful. Needless to say, her warm and friendly nature made us feel very comfortable with her from the beginning of our journey to our wedding day. She put a lot of time and effort into our ceremony and it definitely showed on our wedding day! She truly captured our journey as a couple and we are very grateful for all of her hard work. Sheila captured everything we envisioned and more! Thank you for making our special day a very memorable one!

Sheila is must. She was flexible, accommodating and understanding throughout the entire process. She made the process comfortable and engaging. Her ceremony included all elements and stories that we individually had shared with her while also making it light hearted and relaxed (which was a specific request by us). Our friends and family were also equally as impressed and touched by her ceremony.

Sheila is amazing, she puts in a lot of time and effort to create a special ceremony that captures the essence of the couple. We sat on her couch and she learned the story of how we met, what do we love about each other, who and what is important to us, all the while she was taking pages and pages of notes. She helped us with our vows and provided amazing feedback. When the ceremony was over and I looked at our guests, I KNOW that she had accomplished what we wanted to convey. One of my longtime friends didn't even know some of the things that Sheila was able to get out of us, which is why she is awesome. Just plain awesome.
We are also an interracial couple and wanted someone who was spiritual and not someone who was set in the ritual of a specific religion, again, she excelled at getting a perfect balance of spirituality and culture.

Thanks Sheila!

Sheila is a godsend and totally amazing. We knew right away that she was a good fit because of her hospitality, professionalism, and creative insight. Her previous career in therapy/counseling certainly came into play when we came across a subject for the vows that my wife and I didn't agree on. The best thing about Sheila is that her attention to a couple's ceremony is a hugely Creative endeavor. She has a natural knack for sussing out the two personalities and building an interactive story around them. Her people skills and intuitive sensibilities are right on. In the day of the wedding she was organized, calm, and attentive. A positive source to have in your life as you are planing a wedding! The perfect person for the couple who us personal, thoughtful, and explorative.
Thank you Sheila for your dillengence, follow up, and artful eye!

Shelia is the best. Such humor and compassion. The most accommodating person for our wedding by far. Shelia married us on May 21st 2016 and we had the pleasure of knowing her for almost 2 years while we were engaged. We met Shelia from my sister in law who used her.

When we told Shelia we wanted to use her, she schedule a meeting with us in Asbury Park. She did not have a "sales pitch", she was simply a human being. She asked my wife and I some deep questions which make you think. We spent almost 2 hours with Shelia and left in a great place.

From the time we had our 1st meeting to our wedding day, Shelia was ALWAYS available to talk. She would call, facetime, or meet us in person if we wanted to chat with her. She would randomly check in to see if we had any questions or concerns or wanted any help.

One of the best things Shelia did was to involve our siblings in the ceremony, and also encouraged us write our own vows. This was one of the best things ever, it was so us and made our day perfect.

Book Shelia, don't look anywhere else.
