As a Wedding Celebrant, I am an expert in crafting customized ceremonies for Brides and Grooms. I offer the highest quality services for a fair fee. In short, I do not perform ordinary wedding services.

As a Certified Celebrant, I take great care to learn about you, your love story and your vision for the future. Your ceremony encompasses moments you will recall long after you have been pronounced “husband and wife”. Your ceremony will express the great expectations and intense emotions that characterize the love that has changed your life. Additionally, with my services every decision regarding your ceremony is completely up to you. I will collaborate with you to create and officiate a wedding ceremony which celebrates your rich culture and ethnicity, if you choose.

The words to your ceremony should be genuine and speak of the two of you in your own voice, ensuring a much more meaningful and personalized wedding ceremony. I will work with you to create and design a ceremony that represents your ideas, and desires for your special day. Many couples express to me how they feel spiritual rather than religious, and choose to communicate this through their wedding ceremony.

You have waited a significant amount of time to have a ceremony which celebrates your love. I promise you it will be a ceremony that authentically reflects the truth of your commitment to each other.

If you are getting married in the New Jersey / New York area and would like to learn more about how we can create that perfect ceremony, please contact me to arrange a no-obligation personal consultation. Read less

From the very first time I spoke with Tony, I knew he was going to do an amazing job. Considering the fact that my husband and I are not so religious, we didn't really know what to expect from a personalized ceremony. After filling out necessary documents for Tony to get to know my husband and I better, the day he emailed me our draft that he would read at our ceremony was the day that it made it all worth it that we trusted our instinct to choose Tony. I couldn't believe the amount of time, creativity, emotion, and humor that was put into our story. I knew that our friends and family would never forget this! To say that Tony is a man who is good with his words is an understatement. From the moment I started reading what he wrote, it brought a tear (ok many tears!) to my eyes. I talked to him on the phone, and I said, "Tony!! How am I supposed to keep myself together up there!!" He laughed and said, "That's what it's all about... I can't wait for you to hear it in person!" My husband and I will forever be grateful to the man who took the time to write our love story, who took the time to let all of our family and friends in on our lives together, who took the time to let me look into my husband's eyes and say , "I do", and who took the time to get to know us. We received MANY compliments on our ceremony abut how different it was (in a good way of course!) from any other ceremony they have been to and how special it was for them to get to know us better. Tony also took care of everything regarding our marriage license after our wedding. Let's face it...who wants to deal with mailing that out when you are about to hop on a plane after a crazy whirlwind of wedding fun!!?? This really took a load off of our shoulders that he took care of it for us! Trust and believe me that Tony was the absolute perfect match for my husband and I to be the officiant at our wedding! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Tony!!

I found Tony as I was searching for a videographer to hire for our wedding day. I was watching many video samples online and was awe struck by the officiant featured in one particular video - the ceremony was perfect and unlike anything else I had ever seen. Luckily, after a little digging around, I was able to get contact info for Tony and met with him the following week.
Our first meeting with Tony was great! He came with a lot of information about the marriage process and presented us with a folder to take home full of helpful tips and useful info. He genuinely seemed interested in getting to know us and it was obvious that he loves what he's does - so without hesitation, we hired him on the spot!

The year leading up to our wedding we continued to work with Tony as he got to know us even more over phone and email. The result of this was the most personalized ceremony I could've hoped for. It wasn't generic or cookie cutter, it was us! It was beautiful and lovingly told our love story from how we met, to our engagement, to how we feel about each other in general. The ceremony FAR exceeded my expectations and blew away our guests. There were happy tears, pride and laughter exuding from our guests as Tony spoke the beautiful words.

Almost every guest we talked to said the ceremony was their favorite part of our entire wedding! They asked things like, how many years have you known Tony? Is Tony a relative? Where did you find him?! Can you give me his contact info?

I am forever grateful for Tonys hard work and dedication to making our ceremony so unbelievably perfect!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the fantastic job Tony did with our wedding ceremony. Throughout the wedding planning process he was always there to answer any questions we had, check in with us, and offer suggestions and feedback. When we read the first draft of our ceremony, I cried, and I knew that we made the right decision. Tony told us at our first meeting that people would love our ceremony, and he was absolutely right. We are still receiving compliments about how moving, personal, and emotional it was. Even my husband (who never cries!), cried during the ceremony. You will not regret having Tony officiate your wedding.

Working with Tony was one of the best decisions we made about our wedding day. We initially were concerned about him being on the more expensive side, but in the end he was worth every penny. His overall approach is incredibly thoughtful and down to earth. We were able to share the "story of us" in such a tasteful and touching way. All of our guests were amazed at what a nice job he did - so were we!

My husband and I ABSOLUTELY recommend Tony Zecca!! We decided that we wanted to be married very soon after the engagement, very soon. With one month to plan a wedding I had to find the perfect person to marry us. I read some of Tonys reviews and quickly contacted him. I explained that I would be getting married in one month and would be interested in meeting him if he was available. To my luck and surprise, he was! We set up our first meeting with Tony where we immediately knew that he was exactly what we were looking for. He explained his ceremonies and how we can personalize every bit of it. Within the next couple of weeks Tony got to know my husband and I pretty well. Before we knew it the wedding day had arrived. Tonys beautiful ceremony filled the room with laughter, love, and happy tears. Even my husband, who was so nervous before the ceremony, felt comfortable and at ease. Tony had incorporated everything he learned about us into a true love story. We highly recommend!! Thanks Tony!
Happily Married,

Tony was one of the best choices made in wedding planning. He truly excels at what he does. He is warm, professional, organized and creates beautiful ceremonies. He was open to my revisions and allowed us to make the ceremony something that really reflected who we are. Although he was unable to attend our rehearsal he made sure to get in touch with our coordinators and make sure they were all on the same page. On the wedding day he was punctual and even though the microphone failed he proceeded as if nothing was wrong and projected his voice so our guests could hear him. Our ceremony was beautiful, memorable and personal all thanks to Tony and his passion for creating unique wedding ceremonies.

Tony created a ceremony that was unique, full of love and a true reflection of our relationship. Working with Tony to write our ceremony was wonderful and a memorable part of our wedding planning experience. He incorporated every special reading and ritual we wanted and worked with us to manage the many special people we wanted to honor during the ceremony. He truly created a ceremony that had everything we wanted in it and flowed beautifully. Sometimes, with all the planning you do for your wedding, you can forget about what is really is all about- the wedding ceremony. We are so happy that we used Tony because he made our ceremony meaningful. Not only was it meaningful, but he was able to balance some humor, emotion and sweet stories into the ceremony. Looking back at pictures and video from our wedding, our guests (and us) were laughing, smiling and crying at different pars of the ceremony. It was perfect, and we thank Tony for that.

All throughout the wedding and after it was over, we had guests commenting about how unique and beautiful our ceremony was. People said it truly was all about the two of us coming together as one, and it gave our guests a look inside of our relationship and the special moments that lead up to our wedding day. We could not have been happier with Tony and recommend him to everyone we know who is getting married.

WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS HOW WONDERFUL OF AN EXPERIENCE WE HAD WITH MR. ZECCA.
HE TOOK EVERY VISION WE HAD, EVERY STORY WE WANTED TO SHARE, AND EVERY FEELING WE WANTED OUR GUESTS TO FELL, AND MADE IT A BEAUTIFUL REALITY.

MY HUSBAND AND I WANTED TO HAVE A CUSTOM CEREMONY MADE FOR US, BECAUSE WE HAVE BEEN TO ALOT OF OTHER WEDDINGS AND THE CEREMONIES WERE ALWAYS SOMEWHAT BORING, DRAWN OUT AND JUST SEEMED TO GO ON FOREVER.
BUT WHEN WE SAT DOWN WITH TONY ZECCA, HE PROMISED US OUR CEREMONY WOULD BE ANYTHING BUT BORING AND DRAWN OUT.
AND HE CERTAINLY DELIVERED.

HE WROTE SUCH A BEAUTIFUL CEREMONY FOR MY HUSBAND AND I, AND HAD THE CROWD DRAWN IN, LAUGHING, AND IN TUNE WITH OUR RELATIONSHIP TIMELINE.
WE RECEIVED SO MANY COMPLIMENTS ON THE CEREMONY HE PREFORMED.

WE HAD A FEW GUESTS ON BOTH SIDES (DISTANT FAMILY) WHICH WE HAVE NEVER GOT A CHANCE TO FORMALLY MEET, AND THEY TOLD US THAT "THEY FELT LIKE THEY KNEW US FOREVER"..

TONY IS THE BEST AT WHAT HE DOES, HE CARES ABOUT THE COUPLES HE WORKS WITH, HE IS TRULY GIFTED AND TALENTED IN EVERYTHING HE DOES.

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WHO WILL MAKE YOUR CEREMONY MEANINGFUL, SPECIAL, AND REMEMBERED FOREVER, YOU NEED TO CHECK OUT MR. ZECCA.

I PROMISE YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.

THANK YOU SO MUCH TONY FOR TAKING THE TIME TO WRITE OUR BEAUTIFUL CEREMONY AND CREATING SUCH AN AMAZING STRESS FREE EXPERIENCE - MYSELF OR MY HUSBAND AND GUESTS WILL NEVER FORGET.

LOVE,

TOMMY AND VICKEY ROSELLI.
