My husband and I had asked a relative to perform our ceremony, but didn’t realize until about a month before the wedding that New York State would not legally allow for him to sign off on our marriage license/certificate! Despite our poor research and the last minute contact, Rev. Aviva from Church of Ancient Ways happened to be available on our date and was willing to take us on! She explained that she usually meets with couples months before the wedding to discuss the details and carefully craft the ceremony, but she was flexible enough to rush the process for us and, honestly, we wouldn’t have known the difference! It was smooth, easy, and we loved everything that Aviva wrote for our personalized ceremony, so we didn’t have to go back and forth with edits. Aviva captured our story wonderfully. She is professional, well spoken, warm, and threw in just the right amount of humor to break up all of the emotion and keep our guests interested. Hiring Aviva to marry us was one of the best decisions we made and it took a real weight off of our shoulders. Thank you, Aviva!
