I specialize in creating unique, personalized Wedding, Commitment, Civil Union, Betrothal and Baby Welcoming ceremonies. I am certified by the Celebrant USA Foundation & Institute and I am an ordained interfaith minister, authorized to conduct weddings in New York and New Jersey. I've spent many years helping to lead education-based nonprofit organizations, participating in traditional American Indian ceremonies, and counseling survivors of domestic violence in my community. These experiences make me uniquely sensitive to the personal and cultural needs of others and enable me to create ceremonies for my clients that have tradtional elements but that are also contemporary, meaningful and personally satisfying for them. What makes your relationship unique? What would you like your family and friends to experience on the most important day of your lives? We can work together to make your wedding day truly special for everyone you love. Read less

Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
I will perform a ceremony at any site that you feel fits your values and vision for your celebration.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
I can wear a clerical robe, a business suit or anything that reflects the importance of the commitment you are about to make to your fiance(e).
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
I believe the words said during your ceremony should give voice to the emotions in your heart. I encourage you to contribute ideas for the words I speak during your ceremony.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Though I'm happy to provide you with sample vows, I encourage you to write your own vows. I can help you with this if you need guidance.

I can provide you with an extensive collection of readings and poetry but I also encourage you to tell me about your own favorite readings.

I prefer ceremonies that last between 15 and 20 minutes. That gives us ample time to personalize and commemorate your comittment without losing the interest of your guests -- especially the children among them.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
I encourage premarital counseling but I don't require it. When you decide you would like me to conduct your ceremony, I will send you a questionnaire containing questions that may help you and your fiance(e) to examine your future expectations of one another.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
I do conduct rehearsals. There will be an extra fee based on travel distance and the amount of time required.

It took me and my fiancé a while to find the right person and we are so pleased that we found someone who understood our culture being Hindu and Christian. Eve Young was such a special person who knows so much that God is pleased in the union of marriage and she was familiar with my Hindu culture and my husband's Christian culture. She prepares very well. Creates a script and she built a well planned rehearsal for our rituals. She read from the Bible as well as the Gita and we were able to be ourselves. She also has a great personality and sense of humor. We even received from her a copy of the ceremony and honorary license we can frame. She also filed the necessary document for the certified copy. Blessings to you Minister Eve Young for making our day! Namaste and Peace be with you!

Eve is fantastic. My husband and I live about an hour from our wedding venue and have complicated schedules, which made it difficult to meet Eve. Or so we thought. Eve set up a Gmail video chat with us and we were able to meet her in our living room! That set the stage for one of the best experiences in wedding planning. Eve sent us a timeline of the steps we needed to take, including *how* to take those steps. She sent us a questionnaire about our relationship and values and eloquently folded them into the ceremony. We wrote our own vows, and Eve took it upon herself to give us each printed index cards with our vows during the ceremony - no worries about having to hand them off to the bridal party or have them ourselves. She even added a last-minute request from the photographer as though it was a part of the plan all along. In short, I am so happy Eve married us. She made the experience not only easy, but personal as well. I can imagine a more perfect ceremony.

Eve Young was absolutely amazing. From the first moment my husband and I sat down with her, we knew she was the one to do our wedding. My husband and I are very spiritual, but not religious people. We wanted our wedding to be spiritual, acknowledge our various cultural elements, and include my daughter. Eve did all of these things and more. Many of our guests continue to tell my husband and me that our ceremony was the most beautiful they had ever seen. Even our very religious relatives who were at first shocked because we were not getting married in a church by a priest etc..
If you want to have a ceremony that will be meaningful and genuine to you and your spouse go with Eve, you will not be disappointed.

It has been hard to find the words to describe how wonderful Eve Young is! She helped us create a ceremony that was not only unique and meaningful to us, but had an emotional tenor and gravity that surpassed our expectations. Her presence is remarkable. She anchored the ceremony with her calm and distinguished demeanor, and speaks with warm, loving authority, which conveyed the significance of the event and our commitment to each other. Our guests have not stopped raving about her! She felt like a member of the family, seamlessly woven into the fabric of our event. Many, many thanks to Eve for helping make our dream wedding come true.

It was a pleasure and an honor to have had Eve perform our ceremony. Not once did my husband and I feel nervous or uncomfortable due to eves reassurance that would be just as I dreamed. True to her word, I felt relaxed. We found her professionalism and and the personalization she had given our vows. Everything was beautiful and memorable. We can't thank her enough.

Eve Young is fantastic. My wife and I are an interracial same-sex couple, and Eve wrote a beautiful ceremony that celebrated both our backgrounds and the significance of our day in a broader social context through personal anecdotes and readings she helped us to select. She has a wonderful demeanor – very steady and calm, with a dash of humor. My wife and I loved the ceremony, and it seemed to bring our guests together in a really meaningful way. One family member even requested a copy to read to some relatives who couldn't make it. On the administrative end, Eve was extremely organized. During those crucial minutes before the ceremony took place, she was completely calm and focused on getting everyone and everything in order – the paperwork, the microphone issues, our high-spirited friends and family. Because our wedding took place on a yacht docked at Chelsea Piers, we had to deal with some noise during the ceremony, but Eve handled it with exceptional poise, pausing until the foghorn stopped blasting, or the jet ski passed, then continuing on without batting an eyelash. Overall, we were extremely happy with Eve, and we're so glad we chose her.
