How special is it that you were with us by our side for both children! Please know we are deeply grateful for all you have done! She was so warm and easy to work with, and was very receptive to the interfaith ceremony that my husband and I wanted.
She met with us about 6 months before the wedding to get our ideas for what we wanted from the ceremony.
The combination of theatre and writing serve as a natural fit for her to serve as a wedding officiant.
She finds deep satisfaction in using all those experiences to capture the voices and intentions of couples with whom she works.
She holds degrees from Stanford University and the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and is the author of the Independent Publisher’s Award-winning short story collection “Things That Pass for Love,” and the novels “A Nearly Perfect Copy” and “Stations West,” a finalist for the 2011 Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature and the Oklahoma Book Award.
She lives in New York City, where she teaches creative writing.
She then had us complete a questionnaire to get a better sense of us as a couple.
She had the outline of an interfaith ceremony (Jewish/Catholic) that we really liked, and she was open to every adaptation that we wanted to make.
Gabrielle was our officiant and she made our ceremony so personal and beautiful.
My husband is Jewish and I was raised Catholic and she found the perfect words to meld together our two religions beautifully. Thank you thank you thank you for giving us the most incredible ceremony we could have asked for. All of our guests were bowled over by it, and you in particular got many compliments through the night from friends and family.
