You are engaged!
(Or you are looking at this site to help people who are recently engaged!)
Congratulations! Woot! Holla! Yippee! This is great!
I would love to be able to help craft a ceremony that is reflective of your love – unique, wonderful, beautiful.
I love weddings. I would be delighted in talking with you.
Rabbi Brian married my husband and I. (Neither of us are Jewish, by the way.) To this day our guests say it’s the best wedding they ever attended. He helped walk us through the wedding process with grace and little stress. We are forever grateful to Rabbi Brian for performing such a heartfelt ceremony filled with tears of joy and laughter!

Any genders, genderqueer, same or different religions, with a priest, still on the Sabbath… if you like it, I bet I’m good with it.
Rabbi Brian officiated at our wedding on June 18th & we still have guests comment to us about our “Rockstar Rabbi”. Simply put, Brian was amazing. Brian met with us several times in the months leading up to our wedding and with each meeting he made clear to us that the wedding is about us. Any preconceived notions about how a wedding was supposed to be were discarded, we were free to mold the ceremony and reception anyway we decided. He patently went over several options and scenarios with us based on his experiences and helped us create a ceremony that reflected our values. Brian thought of creative ways to bring several of our loved ones into the ceremony that allowed them to become involved in our special day but still managed to keep the focus on us. We are a multi-faith family and Brian masterfully blended our religions together in a beautiful, funny and very touching ceremony. We cannot say enough good things about him.

Want half the ceremony in Spanish? With some Japanese? In Jamaica?
I can do that.
Rabbi Brian performed the wedding ceremony for me and my husband. At that time, we didn’t know him well on a personal level but he came so highly recommended from family and friends that my mother insisted(!) we fly him from Oregon. My husband and I came from different religious backgrounds but I wanted to incorporate various Jewish traditions into the ceremony. Rabbi Brian followed our lead and even gave us a few ideas of “fun” traditions to add in that are now quite memorable components of our wedding. His style brought the usual smiles and tears of joy but also lots of laughter, which was so important to us. So many people, to this date, still randomly comment about how much they enjoyed our wedding ceremony specifically remarking about Rabbi Brian. Since our wedding, we’ve become true friends with Brian and we couldn’t imagine having anybody else play such an important role in the beginning of our lives together as husband and wife. The moral of the story: HIRE HIM!

It’s fine with me if any, none, both of you are Jewish.
I have done 100’s of weddings and incorporated every imaginable possibility. Before sunset, after midnight, on a boat, as a surprise… in a ski-lodge!
I do not do cookie cutter.
I do personalized with gravitas.
With Viking swords, in Vegas, in Hawaii, 7th day Adventist groom, pregnant Mormon bride, parts in Russian, in Japanese, with a priest, as a surprise, KawaCura Lolita bridesmaids, R2D2 ring bearer, septuagenarian couple… Let me help you to figure out what it is that will be perfect for you.
Please send me an email so we can talk. Or have your coordinator connect with me.
Modesty aside, I do a fantastic wedding. Really. I’m a rock-star of weddings. I can send you to coordinators to vouch that what I do is a “magic.”
I’m glad to talk to you to see if we might be a good fit.
