If you are looking for a Wedding Officiant in Westchester, the Hudson Valley or Northern, NJ who will cater to your requests, I would love to speak with you. My name is Rev. Lisa Zaro and my passion is in making YOUR ceremony reflect YOUR requests so that you have a memorable wedding.

TOP 5 REASONS YOU SHOULD HIRE PERSONALIZED CEREMONIES BY REV. ZARO FOR YOUR WEDDING CEREMONY:

- Personalized attention. This is YOUR WEDDING, YOUR WAY and I strive to make it a magical and meaningful experience for you.

- Experience. I have officiated several hundred weddings in the past few years. I absolutely love what I do and feel so lucky that I can truly connect with the couples I work with to make their day special.

- Connections. No, not mob or mafia, but Wedding Professionals! As the Founder of Wedding Vendors of the Hudson Valley, I run a networking group of over 700 Hudson Valley/Westchester wedding pros. If you need someone in a flash, or for next year, or the year after, feel free to reach out to me. I would be happy to assist you with recommendations for other areas of your big day.

- Professionalism, with humor. I love to laugh, but I also know that a wedding ceremony is a big deal and represents the incredible connection the two of you share. When talking with you, and constructing your wedding ceremony, I will treat it with respect and also with some levity. It doesn't have to be completely serious and traditional. You can have a good laugh during your nuptials if you like!

- No hidden fees. Everything will be laid out for you up front so you know exactly what your package includes and what your options are. The details will be in your contract, which you will have a chance to review before returning it with your retainer.

I'd love to connect with you and talk about your big day. Would you like a FREE CONSULTATION? CLICK HERE TO REQUEST A CONSULT NOW!!!

Lisa is most definitely the officiant you want to marry you. We received so many compliments by guests on her personalized ceremony; they said it was like no ceremony they had ever witnessed. She is bubbly, funny, positive, caring, sweet, genuine, and one of a kind. She is a great friend and we were so blessed to have her not only do our ceremony, but to also do a special dinner reading at the reception. It meant so much to have her there and we can not say enough wonderful things about her. Her passion is her job and it shows in all she does!

Diana and Doug, Thank you for choosing me! You are an incredible couple and it was my honor to be the Officiant for your wedding ceremony at The Clubhouse at Patriot Hills in Stony Point.

Rev. Zaro was a dream! She was the officiant for an elopement and my husband and I were both very happy with her style and services. We wanted a short, meaningful ceremony and she was amazing! Rev. Zaro has a warm and welcoming personality, that made us both feel right at home and very comfortable in her presence. I loved how she even provided me with information on how to change my name, and even when to be expecting our marriage certificate.

Reverend Lisa Zaro officiated our July 4th wedding, and our friends and family have not stopped commenting on our personalized, funny, sweet, and thoughtful ceremony! We've had so many guests tell us that it was the best ceremony they had every been to. Lisa was friendly, easy to work with, responsive, and thoughtful when it came to crafting our ceremony. She really took the time to get to know us, and it truly showed in our beautiful ceremony. We had a moment of panic when rain threatened our outdoor ceremony, but Lisa was a true professional and ready to make adjustments wherever necessary. She even wrote a beautiful poem for my husband and I comparing our love to wine-making (my husband's hobby). We are absolutely thrilled that Lisa was our officiant, and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a custom ceremony that will be talked bout for years to come.

Lisa made our wedding day so incredibly special with all of the personal, unique touches she put into our ceremony! Lisa was lovely to work with. My husband and I were so comfortable with her from the day that we met her. She is a warm, caring person, who makes you feel welcome and special. Lisa met with us a couple of times prior to our ceremony, in addition to answering questions by phone and email. She is very accessible. Lisa ensured that she got to know us in order to develop our perfect wedding ceremony. She helped us choose readings and decide on the order and "flow" of our wedding. Lisa provided a draft prior to our wedding so that we could work to make changes together. But honestly, it was Perfect! Lisa is someone whom will remain in our hearts as our marriage grows! Thank you Lisa!

Lisa was absolutely fabulous. I was a little worried about hiring someone who I didn't know to talk/officiate our wedding. However, after the first video chat I felt a lot more comfortable. She was a professional. The surveys were very comprehensive and as we talked to her we got so much more comfortable with her. She was very helpful with her emails and wise words. The survey got us to talk about our relationship and remind ourselves why we were doing all of this.

The day of the event was amazing. She was so professional and hilarious. She took everything we said and weaved it in in a touching, funny way. Everyone loved her. They kept coming up to us saying how wonderful they thought the ceremony was. She went above and beyond for us. My husband forgot the marriage license at the hotel and she went back for us! It was amazing! Something that could have ruined our event - she saved. We couldn't thank her enough for all of it!

I would absolutely recommend her to a friend.

When my husband and I got married, we were holding the event out of town and didn't have a specific person in mind to officiate our wedding. After searching for some time and given the great reviews, we asked Rev. Lisa Zaro to officiate our wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made during the planning process! We were looking for a more personal ceremony that incorporated color from our relationship, our feelings for each other, and a bit of religion as well (and didn't feel prepared to draft the entire thing from scratch). Rev. Zaro took time to get to know us and our story and crafted a truly beautiful and extremely personal ceremony based on what aspects were most important to us. After our ceremony, our friends and family could not stop raving about what a special and intimate service it was and we truly couldn't have been happier. Working with Lisa was enjoyable and very easy for a busy wedding planning couple. She reviewed the ceremony with us, provided sample readings, and even advised on the required steps for obtaining a marriage license. You can tell Lisa loves her job and is excellent at it! If you are looking for an officiant for your wedding and need help with planning your ceremony, look no further. Lisa was one in a million and we couldn't have been happier with the outcome.

My partner and I decided to get married (after 30 years!) as soon as possible after the NJ court decision. We were off Halloween week (our favorite holiday) and were hoping it could be accomplished on short notice. Rev. Lisa was very accommodating, very responsive (always answered promptly) and very professional. From planning to the actual ceremony took 10 days. Record time! Her follow up was also much appreciated, making sure all of our needs were met. I would highly recommend her for any type of ceremony.

Lisa was so great from start to finish! She ensures that she customizes the ceremony to be specific to what the couple is looking for! She provides advice and examples to help make the decision making process easier. Her communication is great, we loved the fact that she sent us the ceremony she would preform in email form a few days before our wedding for us to review. This was great to get to see to ensure every detail we wanted was incorporated. Overall, Lisa is super friendly and does a great job at officiating! We got exactly what we asked her for and it was loved by all!

Reverend Wanda was wonderful! She met with us at a diner nearby and discussed with us exactly what kind of ceremony we wanted. She allowed us to add as much of our personal style as we wanted and was just so easy to talk to. Weeks after our wedding friends and family are still telling us how our ceremony was the most beautiful cermony they have ever attended because it was so sincere and personal. I would recommend Rev. Wanda to anyone who is also from two very different religious backgrounds as my husband and I are. She took the time to make note of the different traditions that we wanted and helped us to add our personal touch to our cermony as well. I know that whatever your situation may be, she will make it personal and special for you on one of the most important days of your lives!

I knew Rev. Lisa Zaro was the right choice for us the first time we spoke. She is a genuinely friendly person who clearly loves what she does. That was clear throughout the whole process. She took the time to get to know us as a couple and as individuals. She is a great listener and wrote a ceremony that had a perfect balance of serious sentiment and humor- as we wanted. Many guests remarked how they enjoyed the ceremony or how it was the best ceremony that they had attended. I have to add, that is quite a feat considering the 100 degree temperatures that day! Rev. Lisa Zaro is a beautiful person and an outstanding professional. Highly recommended!

Lisa listened to every word we said and put together a fantastic ceremony that truly highlighted our love and our likes. Guests came to me after the ceremony and said they feel like they know the two of us so much better now just based on listening to her words. She was able to truly capture our romantic nature and everything we could ask for. She was on time, friendly, so sweet and amazing to work with. I would reccomend her to anyone looking for a truly unique ceremony experience.

Rev. Zaro was our officiant for our May 2013 wedding. We could not have picked a better officiant! Rev. Zaro spent the time to get to know us, allowed us to read a draft of the ceremony ahead of time to make changes or updates, and made great suggestions of items to incorporate (i.e. ring blessing, readings). In the end, our ceremony was exactly what we wanted - traditional with our vows, not overly religious, and about the love my husband and I have for each other. Our friends and family also loved the ceremony. We received so many compliments about how special Rev. Zaro's words were. Re.

Rev. Zaro performed our wedding ceremony at Greentree Country Club in New Rochelle. She was fantastic!

We got to know Rev. Zaro through a series of Skype chats, which was extremely convenient because my wife and I have unpredictable and narrow windows of availability due to our our work schedules. Our package would have also included an in-person planning session if our schedules had allowed. Rev. Zaro is very well organized and made sure we were on top of things through a comfortable planning schedule (including obtaining our marriage license). She was also a great help giving us ideas for our ceremony and tailoring our ceremony to our preferences. We filled out a questionnaire to help her prepare her ceremony remarks and based on our answers she even found us a reading from the Princess Bride that we loved and integrated into the ceremony.

At the ceremony she was professional without being stiff, which is exactly what we were looking for, and she kept everyone engaged with well-timed and appropriate humor.

We would recommend Rev. Zaro unequivocally and enthusiastically as a wedding officiant.

We were fortunate enough to have Reverend Lisa Zaro recommended to us by our wedding planner!
Rev. Zaro was a wealth of information and support to assist us in our journey in getting prepared for marriage.
The first phone call with her there was an instant connection. She is friendly, warm, professional and gave great advice on how to get started in planning our ceremony. Rev. Zaro was always available via phone, email and we also met her in person to discuss the final planning stages of our wedding.
We had fun answering her questionnaire and relived our journey on how we met and it also helped Rev. Zaro get to know us better and assisted in really personalizing our ceremony.
Rev. Zaro helped us put together a beautiful ceremony that told our family & friends of our journey in a fun and beautiful way. There wasn't a dry eye in the house. We cried, we laughed and rejoiced!

Lisa was great! She was attentive and very easy to work with. Lisa made this whole process very easy and provided manys ideas to us to help us decide what readings we would like for our ceremony, etc. We were looking for someone who could work with us on what we wanted for our ceremony and we found that in Lisa. We loved that she took our personal stories and wove it into our ceremony - Lisa also officiated with a cantor for our wedding, which was so helpful for us because we had so much trouble finding someone who would co-officiate. She was super professional and on top of her game and went above and beyond for us. We highly recommend!

We loved that she took our personal stories and wove it into our ceremony - Lisa also officiated with a cantor for our wedding, which was so helpful for us because we had so much trouble finding someone who would co-officiate. She was super professional and on top of her game and went above and beyond for us. We highly recommend! Read less

Lisa was fantastic! My husband reached out to her for our spontaneous elopement and she helped us pull it all together. She helped us find photographers in the area (which was outside of where we lived) and she guided us through the administrative process of getting our marriage license. She is professional and warm -- everything we wanted in an officiant. Even though we met her for the first time on our wedding day, it felt like having family with us!

We were so lucky to have found Lisa for our wedding. Not only was she a breath of fresh air in an otherwise chaotic planning process, but she really got a sense of who my fiancé and I were and customized a ceremony that was perfect for us. It was really re-assuring getting to sit with her in advance of the wedding and get to know her. She is extremely friendly, personable and down to earth. She gets people, and we being an unconventional, rock and roll type of couple, had no worries when it came time to discuss our beliefs and our own spiritual take on what we wanted to include and what we didn't want to include in our ceremony. Lisa provided us with many options and even suggested the best idea, a time capsule we nailed shut during the ceremony with notes and our vows to be opened in 10 years. From beginning to end, it was perfect. The readings, the vows, and the inclusion of our story as she learned from our initial meeting. Our guests all commented how beautiful, personal, and reflective of us our ceremony was. I would highly recommend choosing Rev. Zaro for your wedding if you want a stress free, personalized ceremony you'll never forget.

I had my wedding in New York and I live in Maryland. Lisa was outstanding about keeping in touch with me and was always available to talk. She was also very considerate about our wishes on having a ceremony with no religious content. There was no judgement and she was very helpful with ideas. She even gave us a terrific idea on doing a wedding time capsule that turned out fabulous. I would definitely recommend her to a friend or anyone for that matter!!

Reverend Lisa Zaro was more than we could imagine in an officiant. My groom and I went into this not knowing what we wanted or how to structure the ceremony. Lisa walked us through everything taking time to review how we met, what we like to do, and what we like about each other. All of these elements were used in a seamless fashion in her ceremony.

My groom and I were engaged for a short time, 4 months, and we only reserved Reverend Lisa a month before the wedding. This was not a problem for her. She tackled everything that was needed in the short amount of time we gave her. She is an amazing woman with a can-do attitude!

We have received numerous compliments on Reverend Lisa and her unique ceremony. I can’t wait for the video to arrive so we can relive it!

Rev. Lisa Zaro officiated our wedding last Saturday, Aug. 11, 2012. From the very beginning, she responded promptly to our inquiry via email. We then spoke to her on the phone to schedule our wedding. We needed to schedule our wedding as soon as possible and she was able to work around our schedule. Within the next few days, we worked out the necessary contract and she even gave us the chance to review and customize the script. During the day of the wedding, Rev. Lisa Zaro arrived earlier than our guests :-) which gave her the time to prepare and fill out the necessary paperwork. She is really nice and easy to work with. We would recommend her service for anyone looking for the perfect wedding officiant! Thank you, Rev. Lisa Zaro :-) -Mr. & Mrs. Matthew...

Lisa Zaro was a pleasure to work with and truly made our day very special. The personal touch that she puts on each ceremony makes her stand out from all the “typical” ceremonies we have been to. I lost count on how many guests complimented our ceremony because it was so different and personal. She described our relationship from the day we met to the day we stood before one another exchanging our vows. She added some humor which we loved, because that is us and we love to have fun. We were very pleased with our ceremony and working with Lisa altogether. Thanks so much Lisa!!!

I had found Rev. Lisa Zaro through Weddingwire and after reading the reviews and having one phone conversation I knew she was the perfect fit! She built a ceremony that reflected our personalities and she was always willing to make changes even last minute! My guests had even commented that it was the best ceremony they had ever witnessed because it was so personal and told our "story". Lisa was kind and efficient and knew how to keep us calm during our stressful morning!

Lisa, THANK YOU for helping make our day so special and we couldn't have imagined just how amazing our ceremony was!

Mike and I were married this past weekend, July 7, 2012. We began planning over 8 months ago and Lisa was one of a few officiants we reached out to. Our decision to go with Lisa was one we made quickly after speaking to her on the phone. She is extremely personable, easy to work with, and super friendly.

Her business manner is calm and relaxing during a time that could be stressful with all else you have to deal with. Lisa is set up so she can accept online payments and is really good at getting back to you quickly.

What Mike and I really loved about Lisa was the way she took the information we gave her and came up with our "story". The vows she put together were a perfect start to what we wanted to share with our guests and she was extremely open to the edits that Mike and I made.

In the end, what transpired at our wedding Saturday evening was an intimate, funny, and beautiful set of wedding vows which not only incorporated the two of us but also our children and our family in a way that was more than we could have asked for. Lisa knew our vows, read them like she really felt them, was willing to be part of the some of the humor we incorporated and really helped us enjoy the most amazing evening ever!

Overall - Lisa - you were fantastic! Thank you so very much for making our day so special.

Much love,

Deb & Mike

Her thoughtful, sincere words brought to light our relationship for everyone to understand. I couldnt have asked for a better, more intimate and sincere service. Even her speaking voice is full of love and kindness. I will always be thankful for Rev. Lisa's participation in our special day.

Lisa is amazing! My husband (Fiance at the time) met with Lisa and she put us at ease the second we meet her. I have anxiety and a fear of public speaking and i did not want to say my vows at our wedding but i wanted my grandparents marriage to be recognized. I told Lisa some details about them and she came up with a MASTERPIECE that had everyone in tears. I know planning a wedding is stressful and exciting and it's also nerve racking to find vendors especially via the internet. Trust me when i tell you, that your fears can be put to rest when you hire her. Lisa will make your day magical!

Reverend Lisa Zarro was a pleasure to work with. During a very stressful planning process she was always there to offer her support and if I needed someone to talk to she was easily accessible and more than willing to listen. She was very prompt and profesional. She offered her knowledge and experiences with us when we were confused and unsure of what to do. I would recommend her services because she not only made us feel comfortable but she made us feel as if our day was just as important to her as it was to us. We appreciate everything you did for us Rev Lisa. Thank you!!!

Rev. Lisa Zaro married my husband and I on May 26, 2012. We could not have asked for a better officiant! We had our first initial meet and greet at a diner in the middle of both of our locations. We were so excited we arrived a little early and poor Lisa was still eating her dinner!! She insisted we sat with her, and we talked over coffee and cheesecake. Immediately we felt comfortable with her, she is such a warm and sweet woman we knew right away she would be perfect for us. We expressed how nervous the two of us were about vows and the actual ceremony itself (me being a cry baby and my husband having stage freight!) She didn't make us feel like we had to do anything we didn't want to do and in fact recommended a simple ceremony with minor talking on our parts!! She came up with a beautiful ceremony that was both personal and classic. We also added a sand ceremony and everything went off without a hitch! We simply cannot reccomend Lisa Zaro enough!!

At the time we first spoke my now husband was stationed in another state and was unable to physically be part of our meetings and conversations. Rev Zaro did a phenominal job keeping him included in all the details of our ceremony... My husband and I have our own way of thinking and from the very start we knew we did not want the same "traditional " ceremony... we wanted our wedding guests to leave our ceremony with a huge smile on their faces and thats exactly what Rev Zaro did... She really took the time out to get to now us individually and as a couple and was able to come up with a personalized ceremony that fit our personalites to a tee!! Our guests have told us repeatedly how much they really enjoyed our ceremony (we have several pictures to prove it) how they have never laughed and had such a great time at a wedding ceremony.. From the bottom of our hearts Rev Zaro, thank you for making our day such a special memory :)

Rev. Lisa Zaro perfectly catered our very own and unique personalized sand ceremony, conveying a reading that described the characteristics of our personalities and of our relationship that this sand ceremony represented.

She told our story exactly as we experienced it and described all of the sentiments in our vows exactly as we feel them.

The ceremony was very heart touching and even included some laughter that had our guests and us giggling.

Lisa did an amazing job at putting this all together with just a few conversations she had with both my husband and I, where she asked us a few questions about our relationship, how we met, what it is we love about each other, etc... Very little time from our end was required and she was extremely flexible, attentive, and sensitive to our needs.

Not only did Lisa help to create a very warm, loving, and relaxed atmosphere for the ceremony, she provided us with comfort and guidance every step of the way, which is definitely something every nervous bride needs. Any questions or assistance we needed she was right there, before, during, and after the ceremony.

Lisa, thank you so much for helping to make our day absolutely perfect, and memorable!

The ceremony was very heart touching and even included some laughter that had our guests and us giggling.

Lisa did an amazing job at putting this all together with just a few conversations she had with both my husband and I, where she asked us a few questions about our relationship, how we met, what it is we love about each other, etc... Very little time from our end was required and she was extremely flexible, attentive, and sensitive to our needs.

Not only did Lisa help to create a very warm, loving, and relaxed atmosphere for the ceremony, she provided us with comfort and guidance every step of the way, which is definitely something every nervous bride needs. Any questions or assistance we needed she was right there, before, during, and after the ceremony.

Lisa, thank you so much for helping to make our day absolutely perfect, and memorable! Read less

Rev. Zaro personalized and performed our wedding ceremony 2 weeks ago. She was able to capture the essence of us and our relationship after only a few conversations. We have received compliments from so many people at the wedding who thought we wrote the ceremony, but we didn't even have any changes to suggest when we received the draft from Rev. Zaro. She really has a talent for understanding people and the ability to put into words what we could not. Everyone cried at our wedding and said the ceremony was beautiful. We would highly recommend Rev. Zaro to anyone!

They say you can’t tell a book by its cover but in the case of Rev. Lisa Zaro you indeed can.

We initially chose her to officiate our wedding ceremony from seeing her kind and gentle face on WeddingWire.com. We then read the complimentary reviews and decided that she was for us.

We weren’t wrong.

Upon meeting Rev. Lisa, we felt as though we were old friends. Her pleasant and open manner impressed us, as well as my parents and guests. She didn’t serve up some ‘canned’ service in a rushed, perfunctory way. Instead, she performed a peaceful, deliberate, heartfelt reading that reflected a familiarity with both of us.

We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone as an officiant for any ceremony.

We consider her a newfound friend.

Rev. Zaro was great to work with for our August 26th wedding. Despite the short notice, she responded to our initial email (and subsequent messages) very quickly--within in a few hours. She was very open to our designing the ceremony ourselves. On the day of, she arrived early and our ceremony went off perfectly.

Rev. Lisa Zaro was amazing! We had written our ceremony and had trouble finding an officiant, as each wanted to customize the ceremony to their liking; however, Rev. Zaro not only complimented us on how well-written it was, but she read it as if she had written it herself... just a flawless ceremony. We couldn't have been happier with her services.

I very much enjoyed having Reverend Zaro as the officiant at my wedding. She was flexible with what we wanted our ceremony to look like. She asked us a bunch of questions so she got to know us and the ceremony felt much more personal, unlike some ceremonies I have seen where the officiant does not even the name of the bride or groom! She helped us with writing our own vows and she came up with readings as well. She was very nice and I received a number of compliments on the ceremony!

Lisa did a wonderful job helping my wife and me plan a spontaneous elopement. We contacted her just days before and, having only spoken to me briefly on the telephone, she was able to craft a lovely ceremony at a somewhat unusual venue. Not only that, but she was able to help us find a witness as we were traveling alone! She is friendly and obviously loves what she does. Very recommended.

Me and my now husband had a really last minute at home wedding ceremony last month when he was on leave from the Navy. Lisa was able to be here last minute and perform the ceremony including the unity candle part that we wanted. She was really nice and great. :)
