I know exactly what it's like to wander from the beaten wedding aisle and I love helping other brides create their own unique traditions. I go out of my way to make the process fun and stress-free, and I am open to any ideas you're willing to throw at me. Because at the end of the day, *you* are what will make your wedding unique. So essentially, my job is to help you express you.

Now let me tell you a little bit about myself.

People become wedding officiants for a lot of different reasons. Some do it to fulfill a spiritual calling. Some do it so they can perform their sister's wedding. And some just do it for the money. Me, I did it out of sheer frustration.

Back when I first got engaged, I literally spent hours and hours typing words like "offbeat, gothic, punk, metal, sci-fi, gay and lesbian, Halloween, funny" and "rock and roll" combined with "NYC wedding officiant" into search engines in a futile attempt to find someone I could actually relate to. What I ended up slogging through were dozens of websites of officiants who all made the same generic promise to give me a "personalized, caring and memorable experience." Ugh. For the most part, they seemed a bit lacking in the offbeat category and a LOT lacking in the fun category. And for a DIY bride who was paying for her own wedding, it both offended and annoyed me that they all charged an awful lot of money for what would essentially boil down to 10-20 minutes of my life. It was maddening; I wanted to pull my hair out.

In defiance, I registered as a NYC Officiant, thinking I would just perform my own wedding. Sadly, I soon learned that there's only one state you can do that in (and it's not New York) so that idea got shot down. But I suddenly found myself sitting around with a perfectly legitimate Reverend status, a grudge against the wedding machine that had denied me the fun, offbeat, and affordable officiant that I had so desperately wanted, a sharp sense of humor and an idea: maybe, just maybe, if *I* was looking for all of those things, well then maybe someone else was too. And I thought: who better to fill that void than someone who's been through it herself?

And so I embarked upon my mission: to give all of you brides out there *exactly* the wedding that you want. You want to get married by a chick in full gothic regalia? Done. Want to get married by Slave Leia? Done. Want an Officiant who tells dirty jokes? Leads a pagan hand-fasting ritual? Incorporates your performance art into the service? Belts out a rock and roll love song for you and your significant other? Dresses like Elvira or a zombie for your Halloween wedding? Reads the entire service in Klingon? Or who FINALLY gets to perform legal, same-sex ceremonies with simple beauty and dignity? Or maybe you just want someone who understands your lifestyle and thinks it's awesome. You get the picture. No idea is too wild, too weird, or yes, even too normal. Your wedding can be anything you want it to be; my only goal is to help you achieve it.

Oh, and the best part? It's not gonna cost you an arm and a leg. Weddings are expensive enough without a total stranger demanding a ton of cash to perform a service pretending she's known you forever. I won't give my rate away here, but unlike most other officiants, I am honest and upfront about the price and post it right on my website. So trust me, I'm cheap. But I ain't easy.

Oh wait.

Yes I am. ;) Read less

If I had to bluntly sum up the experience of having The Reverend D as our wedding officiant, it would be "one of a kind". Everyone wants their wedding day to be meaningful, custom and just an overall fun and unforgettable event. The Reverend D made that happen.

First of all, she tailor writes her service speech in accordance with the questions she will send you and your to-be spouse before your big day. This survey may look daunting to complete in the beginning (my husband so lovingly referred to it as 'wedding homework') but it turns out to be an insightful and hilarious (in our case anyway) review of you and your beloved's relationship and memories! The Reverend D incorporates these into a well written and just AMAZING wedding service. Everyone had asked after the wedding where did we find this incredible woman to be our officiant! Good thing we had found her previously in action officiating another friend's wedding, in addition to googling "death metal wedding officiant" (LOL) which brings me to the next point of this raving review: no matter your style, religion or odd tastes, SHE DELIVERS.

My husband and I are both lifelong metal heads, and had our wedding ceremony in a heavy metal bar venue in Brooklyn NY (Lucky 13 Saloon), where we are long time patrons and consider this place our 'Cheers', since "everyone knows your name" lol. Both my husband and I have strong distaste for cliché, bourgeoisie and stuffy wedding ceremonies and planned everything far from it; including having a wedding officiant that understood our love of the unorthodox heavy metal world and our wish to incorporate that into our ceremony while maintaining some traditional wedding elements. The Reverend D was EXACTLY what we were looking for, with her knowledge of all eclectic, heavy metal, classic and traditional wedding ceremonies. HIRE HER for a unique and transcending experience!

DonnaMarie was the best vendor we could have ever asked for! I hired her not only to officiate but also as a day of coordinator and she exceeded ALL expectations! Not only was she extremely professional in everything she did, she felt like an awesome friend who was hanging out with us at the wedding. Her ceremony speech was so incredible it left all our guests laughing and crying at the same time. So many people thought she was a long time friend of ours to write such a personal ceremony. Throughout the wedding, guests kept coming up to us asking "where did you FIND HER? She's incredible!" All our guests loved her as much as we did! Not only did she kill it at the ceremony, she killed it at day of coordinating too! We went to the venue the morning of the wedding with all my decor and a blank venue, and handed her numbers of other vendors and all decorations. I left to get ready and came back for the wedding and everything was decorated BEAUTIFULLY and everything was so perfect. When I originally got to the venue I had decor that I wasn't sure where to place, or what to do with but she found space for everything. I also gave her a budget for flowers (since I originally was going to forgo floral, but decided, "what the hell!" at the last minute and kind of hired her as a florist too haha!) and she decked the place out better than I could ever imagine any florist do with the budget I gave her for it. I had small cages for the bridesmaids and at our harry potter themed wedding each girl was a Hogwarts house, and she coordinated each cage to match their dresses. It was incredible. The time leading up to the wedding she was incredibly responsive to emails, and skype meetings (I live in Atlanta, but my wedding was in NY so this was crucial) and kept me at ease during the whole process. Could not recommend her enough!! She was the BEST addition to our wedding! THANK YOU!!!!

So, do you want a wedding that is memorable and tailored to you? Then look no further, Rev D is your girl!

We didn't even meet Donna prior to our wedding, one Skype session was enough to win me over. I totally felt super comfortable with her and was seriously loving her from that moment on. Despite being dead set on booking her, Donna still insisted I checked out other officiants, suggested questions to ask others and things to take into consideration. While I appreciated that, I didn't give a crap. I emailed her within 24 hours that I wanted her to do our ceremony. I was so excited to find the RIGHT person for our wedding!! This was actually the component I was most psyched about for our day.

Donna sent a thorough questionnaire to both of us to fill out, which she then used to tailor the PERFECT words to accompany our wedding. I asked for it to be humorous as I was afraid of crying during our ceremony, instead I was laughing and grinning ear to ear just as I wanted to. She hit the major points of us while also getting little details only a few may get. It was just absolutely wonderful. Not only were we happy, but our guests RAVED about Donna's ceremony. They couldn't believe how much she captured us, several people even asked how long I was friends with her thinking that we had a history of knowing eachother! A few also asked me for her contact information so they can have her at their wedding! She's just a treasure hiding out in Forest Hills!

DON'T THINK, JUST E-MAIL DONNA! You will not regret it! May you be a little quirky or conservative, it doesn't matter. She will be the highlight of your wedding day for you and all your guests to remember.

I can sum up what we thought about Reverend D in 3 words: hire her immediately. She is amazing and crafted an absolutely perfect ceremony. It was hilarious and sincere without being corny or cliché. Our guests were cracking up in all the right spots and also tearing up in all the rights spots. Like every other review, all our guests wanted to know how long we had known her. She captured us and our relationship like she had known us from the beginning. The ceremony was definitely at the top of the list of things our guests raved about and my absolute favorite memory from our wedding. Since we were an out of town wedding for her, we Skyped with her before hiring her. We were pretty set on her after reading about her, and didn’t have many other questions, but she ensured we were asking the right questions and encouraged us to check out other officiants before deciding, since we had not met with anyone else. We reluctantly did so and they all paled in comparison. After hiring her, we made a NYC trip to meet her in person (and drink wine, of course). She is a genuinely hilarious and awesome person and clearly cares about what she does and values your vision for your wedding. When she heard we were having a dinosaur-themed wedding, she gleefully offered to dress up as a velociraptor, which I still wish my now-husband didn’t pass on. She sent us a long questionnaire that we were told to fill our separately while drinking (so totally our style!). The ceremony she wrote from our answers was so meaningful and funny and her delivery was amazing. She nailed it and I can’t imagine how how it could have been better. She showed up early and I think I even saw her at the reception helping out our coordinator. She and her husband were a blast at the reception. We are so thrilled to have met her, to have been the recipients of one of her killer ceremonies, and to now be able to call her a friend. She is a total rock star. Hire her now!

My husband and I decided to elope and have our wedding in New York. Planning a wedding can be stressful enough but throw in planning in another country where you have no vendor suggestions from anyone and it's all on you to find the perfect fit. After two hours of googling I stumbled on The Reverend D's page. Immediately I knew the search was over and was so happy at how easy and painless the process was. Which is also how I would describe every moment of dealing with The Rev. She is the friendliest, easiest person to get along with and just makes all the stress and worry of planning melt away. I 100% trusted her despite not meeting her until the day of the ceremony. As for the ceremony itself, perfect. I could not have wished for it to be any better. I have been to a lot of weddings where the officiants were just saying the same generic speech over and over with nothing to make it special. Our ceremony was so unique and perfect in every way. My husband and I both cried tears of happiness and laughter as we listened to the words so perfectly tailored to us it was as if a friend or family member had written it. Not only did she knock the ceremony out of the park but after it was done she went out of her way to help us find some excellent spots for photos around the city. Would I recommend The Reverend D for your special day? A MILLION TIMES YES. Just do it. I promise you will never regret it.

My husband and I decided to elope and have our wedding in New York. Planning a wedding can be stressful enough but throw in planning in another country where you have no vendor suggestions from anyone and it's all on you to find the perfect fit. After two hours of googling I stumbled on The Reverend D's page. Immediately I knew the search was over and was so happy at how easy and painless the process was. Which is also how I would describe every moment of dealing with The Rev. She is the friendliest, easiest person to get along with and just makes all the stress and worry of planning melt away. I 100% trusted her despite not meeting her until the day of the ceremony. As for the ceremony itself, perfect. I could not have wished for it to be any better.

D has been a friend of mine for years, so asking her to officiate my wedding was an absolute no-brainer. I knew that she would knock it out of the park, and boy, did she ever. As my husband had been living overseas for most of our relationship and engagement (minus some long visits) and our wedding here was really going to be comprised of my friends and family, It was so important to me that our ceremony was intimate, personal and reflected both of us, rather than just me. I wanted my guests to really get a feel for our story, our humor, and our experiences. D took that information and crafted a ceremony that was hilarious, beautiful, tear-jerking, you name it. She is so in-tune with us, she started the wedding with my favorite quote from my favorite episode of a television show without even knowing it was my favorite. My only regret is that I have no video of the ceremony, as I was so nervous up there, I only remember bits and pieces. That said, D blew my guests away. I still get comments and raves about how it was the best and most personalized wedding ceremony they have ever sat through, and where did I find this amazing officiant. I'm still blown away by what a special, absolutely perfect job she did for us...not surprised in the least though!

The Reverend D made our wedding so amazingly perfect. We knew we had to have her officiate our wedding as soon as we met her. She gave us genuine advice and took so much time to make sure she had the information she needed to write our incredible ceremony. Every interaction with her was such a pleasure... doesn't hurt that she's hilarious =). After we decided and the wedding was getting closer, we kept discussing how excited we were to hear what The Reverend D had written for us. We were SO insanely thrilled with our ceremony...we laughed and cried, just what we wanted! The guests at our wedding couldn't stop talking about how the ceremony was so us and what a fantastic job The Reverend D did. WE can't stop talking about it either. She included everything we wanted and made it the offbeat ceremony that we desired. We are so grateful we found The Reverend D and for all the time and consideration she put into our wedding. It truly made our day!

I can't say enough fantastic things about Rev. D. Our wedding was a bit unorthodox, very low key, just wanted a quick ceremony. She was able to deliver and then some, no judgement, incredibly professional, and an incredible wedding guest ta boot. We had a fantastic day all around!

RevD was absolutely amazing! We initially just booked her for her officiating services, but she also does day-of coordination so we ended up having her help us herd vendors on the wedding day itself.

The service itself was very funny and very much tailored to us. Struck the operfect balance between touching and lighthearted. What she has the couple do is fill out a questionnaire and then write the service based on what you tell her. Our guests were raving about the ceremony afterwards, all credit to D.

Having her coordinate our wedding was very smooth, she interfaced with all our vendors and I didn't hear anything at all about things that were going on in the background (or about anything that went wrong) throughout the day.

At our initial meeting, we could tell she loves what she does and is committed to giving her clients her best, which is why we went with her. Really happy that we had her.

I want to not be over enthusiastic and give a five star rating for everything above, but that's what I will HAVE to do because she was so great !!! She and Ricky (Her husband) made us feel happy and comfortable on the wedding day. They were cheerful and very very considerate ! Ricky even did a video for us and took almost 900 pictures - I didn't ask him to, but he graciously offered !!! (This was an elopement ceremony and it matters !) She will do just about everything to make it happen the way you want it and that's what it is all about with her. She gets it and loves what she does. She invited us to her home (We live near by and went to drop off the book) and was really great with personalizing the ceremony. She really put a lot of time and effort to understand our story and wrote it up beautifully ! We were both in tears at the end of it. She is a great human being and a delightful person. Ricky is amazing too ! If you are looking for someone thoughtful - look no further ! My small central park elopement ceremony was the best that I could ever hope for !
