Judy Howard was amazing – helpful before the wedding and fabulous during the wedding. She delivered a marvelous service and she was complimented by many of our guests – a mix of Jewish and non-Jewish. She was terrific.

Judy Howard was terrific in every respect regarding our Big Day. She was very helpful beforehand in the planning process and made excellent suggestions to ensure a nice flow for the ceremony. When the day came, she arrived right on time and blended in with our guests immediately. Pleasant, Professional and a big calming influence. We couldn’t be happier to recommend her to anyone who’s looking for a wonderful nuptial experience.

Thank you so much for officiating our wedding. It was an absolute pleasure, and I have to tell you both families received soo many compliments on how lovely the ceremony was, how inclusive it was of both faiths, and how it was conducted.

Judy Howard officiated our wedding and she was absolutely fantastic. She found the absolute perfect balance of “steering the ship” without “taking over the show”. By far the most consistent compliment we received from our guests on and after our wedding day was that our ceremony was the most beautiful one they’d ever seen. This was a testament to Judy’s full willingness and encouragement to incorporate the traditions of both of our heritages. Finding an officiant who would perform a very inclusive interfaith marriage ceremony had some challenging moments and we are thrilled to have found Judy and wholeheartedly recommend her. Thanks again Judy for helping to make both of our families feel included and for ensuring our ceremony became a memory we will treasure for the rest of our lives!
