Officiant

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Interfaith Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Jewish
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes! Since I perfom many interfaith wedding ceremonies a "non-religious" or "neutral site is often preferred for both families.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
I usually wear my vestments for the ceremony. It gives it an official air and important presence. :-)
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
There is certain format I need to follow but the wording is very open. I want to work with a couple to make the ceremony uniquely their own.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
I love when couples write their own vows! But they must be the same so that they will be the same in the eyes of God. However if they also want to make personal statements to each other during the ceremony they can do that as well. These can be personal and individual.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
I have many suggested readings to assist couples in finding one if they so choose. I am always open to new readings.
How long are your ceremonies?
My ceremonies are 20-25 minutes in length. However it is usually the processional and recessional that add time to the length of the ceremony. I encourage couples to tell their caterer to allow for 40 - 45 minutes for the ceremony to accommodate this.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
I think pre-marital counseling is a plus. I encourage it but do not require it.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
I usually do not do rehearsals the day or two before the ceremony. I do give couples an outline of the processional and recessional. I also do arrive at the ceremony early enough to do any last minute rehearsing and going over the final details.
Do you supply a sound system?
No.

From the moment we met Nancy, we knew that she'd be the perfect officiant for our wedding! My wife is Jewish and I was raised Christian, and Nancy was very accepting of our different backgrounds. She made us feel welcome and was genuinely interested in our lives. She was very responsive and answered all of our questions. She let us customize our ceremony to fit our unique personalities.

Nancy was amazing to work with! We met with her 3 times before the wedding just to get to know each other, and I really appreciated that time together. She provided us with support and guidence and worked with us to create a ceremony that fit our unique personalities. She was very responsive whenever we had questions, even during the crazy stressful planning moments right up until the day of the wedding. I am still getting compliments from our guests about what a beautiful ceremony we had and how wonderful Nancy was. She brought professionalism, yet stayed personable and added humor as well! And boy does she have a fabulous singing voice!

Nancy was the cantor at our wedding which took place at the Walters Art Museum. She had a beautiful voice, made the ceremony personal to the bride and groom, and did an excellent job making the ceremony easy and relaxing. We met with her several times before the wedding so we could get to know each other. We were thrilled when she displayed how well she knew us with her words during the ceremony. It was so wonderful having her lead our wedding and marry us in such a beautiful setting. Her voices carried beautifully in the Sculpture Garden! She was very informative when we first met her and really allowed for us to customize our ceremony. She performs all kinds of ceremonies, not just Jewish ceremonies, so she has an open mind! She was wonderful and I would highly recommend her to anyone. I wish we had been able to spend more time with her at the wedding, but she is one to keep in touch even after the wedding so I am sure we will see her again!

Nancy was a joy to work with. It was very difficult for my husband and me to find an officiant for an inter-religious marriage (my husband is Jewish and I am an agnostic), but Nancy was more than happy to work with us. We wanted a Jewish ceremony and she walked us through our ceremony, step by step. We had a couple of marriage counseling appointments with her, which were incredibly helpful and insightful, and then we got to planning the ceremony. She laid out all of our options, told us the "musts" of Jewish ceremonies, and then let us know what we could pick and choose from for the rest of the ceremony.

Nancy was consistently on time, responded to our emails in a prompt fashion, and was a pleasure to work with. We had numerous guests comment on how beautiful the ceremony was, from the readings to the Jewish traditions that we chose to have as a part of our ceremony. Nancy also got quite a bit of compliments, as she was lighthearted, fun, and serious at the right times.

I highly recommend Nancy. If we had to do it all over again, we wouldn't have it any other way.

We used Cantor Nancy Ginsberg for our ceremony and she did a FANTASTIC job!! Everybody in attendance loves how she mixed both seriousness of the occasion with some light hearted jokes. It was a truly beautiful ceremony and I cannot thank her enough for making it as special as she did.

Also make sure to give Shoshi a pet when you go for meetings at her house! I think she should recruit her pup to help out during the ceremony!

She also worked exceptionally well with our pastor and it was a joy to have them both doing the service together. We were honored by her presence at our wedding and would recommend her to anyone.

Cantor Nancy was amazing, and without her, our ceremony would have been a disaster. My husband is Catholic, and I am Jewish so we decided to have an interfaith wedding. Unfortunately, the priest we got did not know us at all and completely messed up his parts in the ceremony. Thanks to Cantor Nancy our ceremony was still beautiful and meaningful. She also has an amazing singing voice! We had met with her several times over the past number of months, and we felt really comfortable with her. You could tell during the ceremony she really knew us and our personalities. We got so many compliments from our friends and family at the wedding who absolutely loved her too.

Loved her, loved how personal the ceremony was (everyone was in tears) and loved the continuity of spirital leadership within our family. She took to my now-husband right away, which was important to me.

Perfect officiant for my wedding day and couldn't have imagined it being officiated by anyone else!

Cantor Nancy R. Ginsberg was the best officiant we could dream about. She made our wedding ceremony a wonderful, personal, warm and unforgettable experience. I think most of our guests had tears in their eyes after the ceremony so touching it was. Nancy also conducted a pre-marriage counseling which proved to be very interesting and useful for our relationship. We would like to thank Nancy for her professionalism and warmth. We were very luck to have her as our officiant and would most definitely recommend her to our friends who might want to have a Huppa.

Cantor Nancy was a pleasure to deal with. She was very warm and friendly. She had a lot of great materials to start building a ceremony that fit our specific needs (inter-faith same-sex couple). She was very flexible in terms of putting the ceremony together, but had certain elements she insisted on, which was valuable. She was a great presence at the ceremony, funny, warm, dramatic, and engaging. She went "off-script" for one portion of the ceremony, but it was beautifully done and added a lot to the experience. We were very happy we chose to work with her and strongly recommend her.

Nancy Ginsberg was the cantor at my wedding this past weekend. She made our ceremony personal by getting to know my husband and I prior to the wedding, which we really appreciated. She has a good sense of humor, as well as a beautiful singing voice. My guests and family are still talking about how nice the ceremony was.

Cantor Nancy was the great officiant for our jewish/catholic wedding. So much so that wedding attendees asked for her contact information for vow renewal ceremonies. She was great at explaining what was going on so evryone felt included even in teh parts that were not familiar to some.

My husband and I used this company, and Cantor Nancy Ginsberg for our wedding this summer. At first, Cantor Ginsberg appeared very eager and excited to co-officiate our wedding and meet with us to plan our ceremony, prepare as a couple, and provide us with support. After signing the contract she set up three appointments for us to meet at her home. She stood us up for two out of three appointments and was not at her home when we arrived. She had forgotten about both appointments. During the year of planning, Cantor Ginsberg helped us to design our ceremony and reassured us that the ceremony would run without a glitch. We had asked her to meet with the other officiant to touch base, but neither of them felt it was necessary, as she was the leader of the ceremony, and they had worked together before. She also refused to attend our rehearsal because she did not want to take away from her family time. Following numerous times of her reassuring us that all details were in order, and making me feel overly concerned, on our wedding day, she forgot about our unity candle lighting and a reading that was in our ceremony notes, and also in our program. My husband and I had to stop her twice during our wedding ceremony to remind her about her mistakes. It was a very choppy ceremony because of this. She also sang a Broadway showtune in the middle of our ceremony that was never discussed with us beforehand. For a six o'clock ceremony we asked that she arrive at our venue at 5 for the ketubah signing and to meet with the other officiant. She responded that she would try her best, but that she had recently gotten a new job and wasn't sure if she could sneak out early. We had signed a contract a year prior. If you are looking for someone flexible and unbiased, please look somewhere else. Often times she was unprofessional in her conversations and was condescending. She has a very strong personality and at times can come across very rude. For example, having never met my parents before, she entered into my bridal suite on the wedding day and without introducing herself began arguing with my mom about how the table in the suite was not up to her standards for signing the ketubah. We called her the day after our wedding to discuss our concerns and disappointment with her services. She didn't take responsibility for her mistakes, was unapologetic, and did not right the situation with a refund. Her only explanation for her poor performance was "I'm human, and it's been a tough year for me." Please, please look somewhere else for an officant for your wedding. This choice was our only regret for our special day.

In spite of everything you think, I loved being part of your wedding. I enjoyed meeting the two of you and sharing your day. Everything was beautiful and you both were stunning. There was some miscommunication along the way. I have apologized many times. I am human and things happen. None of what happened was done intentionally, or to hurt or ruin your special day. So many of your guests came up to me at the cocktail hour and told me it was the most beautiful, meaningful wedding they had ever been to. I feel terrible that you were not satisfied. I wish you both only the best. I hope you have a beautiful life together with much happiness and joy. Life is short, enjoy it and each other. Blessings.
