Memorable, Meaningful & Magical Ceremonies by Professional Wedding Officiants
Say "Goodbye" to the Same Old Cookie Cutter Wedding Ceremonies and "Hello!" to Love, Laughter & Celebration with Your Wedding Officiant!

If you are looking for an Officiant in the Hudson Valley, Westchester or Northern New Jersey area who will create a ceremony that is reflective of your beliefs, traditions and personalities as a couple, 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 that your guests will talk about for many years to come!

TOP 5 REASONS YOU SHOULD HIRE PERSONALIZED CEREMONIES BY REV. ZARO & OFFICIANTS FOR YOUR HUDSON VALLEY, WESTCHESTER OR NORTHERN NJ WEDDING CEREMONY:

- Personalized attention. This is YOUR WEDDING, YOUR WAY and we strive to make it a magical and meaningful experience for you. We will ask you questions and truly LISTEN TO BOTH OF YOU to ensure that your ceremony represents your wishes, traditions and personalities.

- Experience. I have officiated several hundred weddings in the past few years, and the Officiants that work with me when my calendar is full are dedicated to providing quality, professional services as well. I absolutely love what I do, and the Officiants that work with me have that same passion. We all feel so lucky that we can truly connect with the couples Iwe 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. The Officiants that work with me are members as well. If you need someone in a flash, or for next year, or the year after, feel free to reach out to us. We would be happy to assist you with recommendations for other areas of your big day.

- Flexibility & Humor. We are very in tune with our couples and want to make sure you are comfortable with everything. So, guess what?! You get to PREVIEW YOUR CEREMONY so the two of YOU have the final say on what is included. We encourage you to tell us of ANY changes you want. If you aren't comfortable, then we are not comfortable. This is the most important day of your life, and our job as your Wedding Officiant is to give you the best possible experience! You can even have some humor in your ceremony if you like! We will create a ceremony for you that reflects your personalities, including your sense of humor. We want you to feel relaxed and at ease during your wedding, so we can encorporate some levity and laughter that is NOT CHEESY, don't worry! Again, you get to preview everything, so nothing is said in front of your guests without your OK. After all, you know each other, your family and friends best, so you get to be the judge of how much you love your ceremony. Once you send us your changes, we make any adjustments you request and you have YOUR ceremony that is tailored to the two of YOU! (Can you tell we are all about our couples yet?)

- 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. We do NOT charge for you to have readings or special elements (candle, sand, flower, time capsule, unity canvas, breaking of the glass, etc.). We will suggest readings for you so that you don't have to search the web or library for them. For special elements, all you have to provide is the items for the ceremony, such as the candles, holders, sand, vase or shadowbox, flowers, etc. We will NEVER nickle and dime our couples. Stress is something we never, ever want to impose on you. So, we make our packages very clear! Would you like a preview of our package pricing and inclusions?

We could not have asked for a better officiant! We have received so many compliments from our guests on what a great ceremony and reverend we had. Lisa was so laid back and easy to work with. We met with her one time and from that she was able to create a ceremony that was a unique and personal reflection of us. She was extremely helpful and made it very clear that her priority was ensuring that we would be happy with the ceremony - it could not have been more perfect.

Rev. Lisa is truly remarkable! She met with my then-fiance and I prior to booking. She wanted to get to know us and allowed us to ask questions as well. We felt very at ease while speaking with her and we just knew she'd be perfect to marry us. She told us from the start, we would get out of our personalized ceremony what we gave her, so we decided we were an open book.

Throughout the process, Lisa was very understanding to my OCD tendencies and my desire to get things done early so I'd feel less stressed. She accommodated me by sending things to me early so I'd feel more comfortable. With all of the other weddings she had going on, she still made me feel like I was so important. It was a very nice feeling to know she was there for me.

Our story was beautifully reflected in the ceremony Lisa put together. All night our guests were commenting on the story saying "you get to know the couple, but you never really hear their story." That meant a lot to me because I wanted people to feel the love that my husband and I feel for each other. That message was definitely conveyed. Also, everyone is so accustomed to the traditional wedding and vows, ours was definitely a completely different spin. It seemed to be appreciated by our guests, and it made me happy to know that they saw all of the effort that went into it, not just by us, but by Lisa. She truly made our ceremony one-of-a-kind and completely memorable for me.

Many of our guests complimented her and said it was so amazing how well she knew both of us and the ceremony was personalized to perfection! She kept the humor in it as we wanted and we had a blast!

Lisa was the best officiant we could have possibly imagined for our special day. The overwhelming amount of compliments we still continue to receive about our ceremony proves how perfect everything was. Lisa spoke as though she has knows us for years, she made everyone feel a part of the ceremony and kept everyone's attention for the entire ceremony with her words. She set a ceremony tone like no other. People were laughing, crying, gazing and just enjoying every single moment, as were myself and my husband. So often times a wedding ceremony is very standardn, very cliché and tend to go unnoticed. Ours was the total opposite. People were ranting and raving about the love and romance our ceremony presented the entire night. Lisa was a joy to work with and made our day even more special than we dreamed it ever could be. We will remember it always.

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. It was extra special on my end as that is where my husband and I had our own wedding. I also enjoyed writing your ceremony so much. I can't begin to tell you how inspriing the two of you were. Thank you for the amazing review! See you soon! Rev. Lisa Zaro, Hudson Valley & Westchester Wedding Officiant

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.
