My name is Larry Adler and I’m a wedding officiant. I’ve been asked what a wedding OFFICIANT is? To me it’s an over-arching term that encompasses minister, priest, rabbi, justice of the peace, celebrant and any other person that can officiate or solemnize a wedding according to New York State. A blog, or at least […]
- Hi Larry,
Andrew and I wanted to let you know how much we appreciated everything you did for us regarding our wedding. From the day we emailed you to the day we finally got married, you couldn't have been more helpful.
As we are from the UK we thought getting married in NY may have been tricky, it was so easy! You let us know all the things we needed to do and you made as feel confident in everything.
When we came out to NY 5 months before the wedding, you met up with us and gave us a few suggestions for the ceremony, we couldn't have been happier with the suggestions.
On the day you kept Andrew calm (almost) and made me feel special - it really was a fantastic ceremony, one I will remember forever!
We just wanted to say a big THANK YOU and if we know of anyone else who is thinking of jetting over the NY to get married we will definitely pass your details on
Thank you so much
Sarah and Andrew
I wanted to provide you with a testimonial for the great job you did on our New Year's Eve wedding. Even though this was a second marriage for each of us, you were able to assess and more importantly deliver on the just the right amount of formality we were looking for: Our pre-wedding planning session with you was very relaxed and helped to form the vision of our perfect day; We have received positive feedback on the ceremony and your reading of the "hands" poem; Your presentation and diligence really showed.
We also appreciate the relaxed and comfortable manner you helped to create in the room. Your help with addressing a last minute issue with the room (i.e. the exit doors under the archway) did not go unnoticed either. Due to your help, we adverted what could have been a potential distraction for our guests and our cherished pictures.
Thanks again for all your help!!!

- Dear Larry,
Thank you so much for officiating our wedding. We are so glad that our reverend never returned our calls or emails and you were there to help us out at the last minute. You made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. The ceremony that you put together for us was more than we could have asked for. It was absolutely perfect. I can not thank you enough for all that you did for us. Our family has all commented on what a beautiful ceremony it was.
I was nervous being up in front of everyone but you helped calm the nerves when we were up there. Thank you again for making our ceremony so beautiful and perfect.
- Hi Larry,
We truly enjoyed our ceremony you put together for us.
All our Family & Friends that attended our wedding really enjoyed the Sand Ceremony. A lot of people never saw that before and it really meant a lot to Kieran & I to have the children included in the ceremony. To us when the sand all became one, we merged our families and never can be separated again. Thank you for your patience with the extreme weather conditions but the sun was chasing us and here are some beautiful pictures for you to share on your website.
Hope all is well and Take care.
Jackie & Kieran
- Reverend Adler made our wedding ceremony so memorable. He was charming, personable and witty and made himself always available to discuss any important details regarding the ceremony from the very first telephone conversation up until our special day. He had great ideas on how to make our ceremony unique and was able to incorporate all of the special things we wanted at our ceremony. He made the ceremony fun and delightful for all. All of guests said that our ceremony was the best that they had ever been to. Our favorite memory was the lighting of the unity candle with our mothers by our sides, an idea presented to us by Reverend Adler. This fond memory of our mothers giving us away to start our new lives as husband and wife we know will forever be with us and we have Reverend Adler to thank for that.

- Dear Larry,
I wanted to say thank you for a wonderful ceremony we will never forget. Our families couldn't say enough about what a great ceremony you performed. Everyone thought we knew you or you were a friend of the family due to your great personality and ability to be so personable. No one believed I found you on the internet. Thank you again. We are both very happy to finally be married and you made our day perfect. The ceremony was the most important thing to me. Most people put all their effort into the crazy reception, but in my opinion that’s not what a wedding is about. I never really cared about what went on after the ceremony. The ceremony is the wedding, that’s where two people commit to one another making that the most important and special event. I couldn't have wished for a more perfect ceremony, THANK YOU!
Ryan and Jessica
