Christopher was absolutely incredible!!!! Our ceremony exceeded our expectations. Even with our toddler son was running around the venue during the ceremony he kept it about us and didn’t veer away from making it about us. 100000/10 recommend!

Chris was absolutely amazing. Great officiant, loved the light humor he brought to the ceremony, especially since we didn’t want to make it so serious. We did the fisherman’s knot as part of the ceremony and Chris’s speech was beautiful. This was not the average boring ceremony, he truly made it a unique one. Thanks again Chris.

Chris was amazing to work with! He was always quick to respond whenever I needed to speak with him! At our first meeting, he was super informative and really helped me become familiar with the entire process and how things were going to work on the big day. On my wedding day, Chris came to see me in the bridal suite and made sure I was good to go! He walked me through what to expect and was so kind. I have received so many compliments on how beautiful my ceremony was. Chris kept it light and fun and made my husband and I feel so special. If I had to do it all again, I would book with Chris without any hesitation!

If you are looking for an officiant who truly cares to create a ceremony that is thoughtful & meaningful, who can grab the attention of your guests, is responsible, and punctual, ask for Chris at NY Officiants. Chris is absolutely amazing and worked with my husband and I to create a super personalized ceremony. Although our requests were a little out of the ordinary, Chris didn't blink an eye and made it all happen for us. A ton of our guests complimented Chris on how he drew everyone in and left everyone wanting to hear more. As founder of Brides of New York @bridesofny , I'm happy to say NY Officiants is now a "Personally Used Vendor" and ONLY "Preferred Vendor" in the Wedding Officiant category. You will not be disappointed if you go with Chris!! Thank you, Chris. You exceeded all of our expectations. New York Brides are lucky to have you.

Christopher officiated mine and my husbands wedding. He was amazing, he walked us through the whole thing before hand, made it fun, and kept everyone engaged the whole time. He made himself available if I had any questions along the way during wedding planning and he truly lives up to the 5 star reviews and great reputation that he has! If he has your date available do not hesitate to book him!

Christopher did an AMAZING job at our ceremony. We had a 300 person black tie wedding in Manhattan. We were very nervous and he kept us calm throughout the entire process. Not only did he make the ceremony intimate but he also kept the audience engaged. After the ceremony all of our guest complimented how great the ceremony went. We also had countless guests ask for his contact for their own weddings. I highly recommend him!!

Thank you! Chris was amazing on our special day. He told our love story effortlessly. I could visualize the moments he described as he went in to details on our journey together. Chris had a great sense of humor. I was so anxious and afraid I would freeze at the alter, but he told me exactly what to expect. He did an awesome job at leading us during our ceremony. Chris reminded us to look in to the cameras for awesome photography shots. We are forever grateful. Highly recommended!!!

NY Officiants was able to accommodate our wedding on a very short notice. They were very thorough and easy to work with. They asked us what type of ceremony we were looking for in order to tailor their script to our desires. Chris’ words throughout the ceremony were so personable, kind, and lighthearted that our guests thought that we were friends with him prior to the wedding! We received so many compliments about NY Officiants and our guests kept asking where we found this company. I saw all of their wonderful reviews online which was one of the many reasons I decided to go with this company. I hope that someone will find mine and do the same!

Christopher was the officiant for my wedding on 9/22/22. He did such a stellar job that I had many friends and family members commenting about it. They said it was so emotional that they were nearly in tears and they actually thought he must know us or be a personal friend. The love story he wrote was incredible, moving, and just the right amount of humorous. I give Chris my absolute highest recommendation since he literally made it perfect! Thank you so much Chris!

When we were looking for an officiant Chris spent an hour on the phone with us walking us through everything and answering all our questions. The way he spoke over the phone was very professional but had a sense of humor which is what we were looking for in our officiant. At the ceremony Chris made sure we knew exactly what to do and when to do it. During our ceremony when Chris was speaking you could tell how passionate he is and that the words came from the heart

Andrew was my officiator on our special day and we were running late on our schedule but he knew exactly how to get us back on track. The ceremony was lovely and had the right amount of humor that we wanted. Our guests were engaged and he did a great job of sharing our love story. Would highly recommend if anyone is looking for something different. The team is very organized, showed up on time and has a great level of professionalism.

My husband and I got married yesterday. It was a hot sunny Friday early evening outside. Let me tell you- Minister Christopher at NY Officiants was amazing!We stepped aside just before the ceremony and he made my husband and I feel calm in the midst of all the excitement!The Personalized Love Story was so beautiful, fun, and light hearted! He wasn’t just reading answers that we wrote down- Christopher really made a story out of how my husband and I met, how he proposed and fun facts about us. Christopher made us laugh and kept a smile on everyone’s face. Our friends and family were talking about it throughout the night!Just as my husband and I were being announced for the first time Mr. and Mrs. it started drizzling as if our loved ones in heaven were celebrating with us! I am so thankful to have had such a perfect, memorable ceremony! I can’t wait to watch back the video!!!!Thank you, minister Christopher!!!

Exactly what we were looking for, Amazing!!! Easy to talk to, professional and funny……I never write a review but I need to tell you about my experience because it was perfect. My wife and I just got married yesterday 8/26/22 by Minister Christopher of NY Officiants at Villa Lombardis. I truly want to thank him for taking the time in getting to know us as a couple and to be able to deliver such a memorable ceremony. He took all of what we spoke about and used it in “our love story” portion of the ceremony and throughout. It was so personalized and special. I could tell he took the time in learning about us and everything was polished and comfortable. I was a bit nervous about what to do before the start and the time was taken to go over everything we were to do and say. We were originally worried because sometimes wedding ceremonies can be a bit on the boring side, this wasn’t the case at all. So many of our guests came up to us to let us know how great it was. It was the perfect time for everyone to learn more about us. Christopher spoke of how we met, what we love about each other and the many reasons why we decided to get married. He also had the crowd and us laughing at the right times during the ceremony. What a great experience and a great person to deal with. We truly were lucky to have such a beautiful experience with Christopher and NY Officiants. I hope everyone’s wedding day could be as special as the memories we have because of him. Thank you a million times!

Christopher was the perfect officiant for our wedding. We got so many compliments after about how sweet and personal the ceremony was. Christopher kept the audience engaged and was funny at all the right moments without taking away from seriousness of the ceremony. I would highly recommend the Love Story package. His Love Story for us was perfectly written and captured who we are, how we met, and the love we share. He is also quick to respond and was always super helpful. Hire him today!

Thank you Chris for being so flexible with your schedule, kind, early, reasonably priced (always a plus for me!) and knowledgeable. We had a meet and greet marriage signing, literally married in front of our home and it was a great moment. Highly reccomend, if we decide to have a full wedding, he's definitely first on our list to call!

We made the best decision ever when we decided to hire Christopher as our officiant!!! He exceeded all of our expectations both in the time leading up to the wedding and during the wedding. He personalized our vows for us as well as our unique candle lighting ceremony (in which we included our parents). He made us (and our guests) laugh, cry and smile. Our guests are still talking about him! I’m so happy and forever grateful. I would gladly recommend NY Officiants to everyone! Thank you so much!!

Chris was our MC and officiant, and he tailored our ceremony and made it extremely personal. His retelling of our love story was touching and showed attention to details. As our MC during the dinner / reception, he was able to keep the crowd engaged throughout the night by inserting jokes and games between our first dance and speeches. His time management was excellent, and he was able to react and adjust the timing of different segments accordingly when we ran over time on a few items. Overall we had a great experience with Chris and we are extremely grateful to him for being our MC and officiant on our special day!

Christopher was responsive and so helpful and was quickly able to reach out to Susanne who was available to hold our ceremony. She was kind and so sweet and the ceremony was beautiful.

As my partner minister I couldn’t ask for a better guy than Chris at NYofficiants. Not only does the guy know the business, he delivers every single time he takes the mic. His rapport with couples, vendors, guests is truly remarkable and that’s why he continues to see such sustained success. If you’re looking for an officiant, Chris is the best in the biz.

The original officiant that we got 3 months prior our wedding cancelled on us just 2 days before the big day and we had to find a new one asap. Luckily we saw NY officiants online and messaged them right away. Christopher from NY officiants responded quickly and was able to book as a new officiant, also named Kristoffer, despite the last minute arrangement. They were very professional and had us go through all the details very well. So then came the big day and my make up artist was 2 hours late! Kris had to wait at our wedding location for almost 2 hours too for us. When we finally arrived, Kris' face showed no distress from all the waiting. He was very pleasant and very nice. Oh and we also forgot to bring the copy of our licence due to all the stress we encounterd. Kris was kind enough to drop by our house to get the document from us. They handles everything great! I definetely would recommend NY Officiants. If we could give them 10 stars for this review, we would!

My friend married us and I learned (thru this page) that it may not be considered legal on LI a little over 2 weeks before the wedding. I reached out to Christopher at NY Officiants and he was so insanely sweet! He called me the day after I sent a request online and spoke to me for some time. I got married at GIorgio’s at 4:30 and he had a wedding in the Rockaways at 2 that day. He knew my husband and I weren’t doing our first look until 1 so he FaceTimed him while he was sitting with me! He was so sweet and insanely helpful that day. After I hired him, I told my friend who’s getting married in October to hire him, since we have the same friend marrying us!! ♥️

Christopher helped with all of this, we knew we wanted a more relaxed ceramony something personal but Not so serious, and this is exactly what we got. The love story was amazing it captured our story just how we wanted and it was all made so easy. The day was perfect. Thank you so much! 🙂

We had everything set for our big day May 14th, 2022. Christopher was so helpful in walking us through the steps to plan the wedding ceremony to occur at the venue before our reception. Last minute our wedding was thrown a bit off track due to several guests falling ill to covid. We decided to postpone the reception but still wanted to get married (new location) so we contacted Christopher at NY Officiants and AGAIN he was so helpful and accommodating (so stress free) he helped us switch our plan for the ceremony. I have to be honest, I did not know what to expect for our new plan (Hotel room ceremony planned in less than a week) BUT I have to say, Christopher's vibe and approach to marrying us (in the new environment) was AMAZING! My Fiancé and I were both completely happy with having the ability to still get married, with our families watching via zoom. Christopher's personality and style throughout the planning process and ceremony, exceeded our expectations! NY Officiants is a top of the line company to use and Christopher is just simply the Best! Cant wait to do this again in August 🙂 Thank you So Much!The New Mr & Mrs Serrano

Chris was absolutely wonderful and a lifesaver. Highly recommend him as an officiant for your wedding!My (now) wife and I had received our marriage license and we were originally planning to have a ceremony at our new house. However, due to unforeseen circumstances and delays, we were not going to be able to have the formal ceremony before our marriage license expired. To make matters worse, the delay to get a new appointment for a marriage license was another 2-3 month wait and we’d likely miss the summer window we were looking to have a formal ceremony during.I called a bunch of officiants and tried to leave messages asking for the impossible (seeing if they would be able to marry us the next day)! I was about to give up when I came across Chris’s website. I gave him a ring and he picked up on the 1st ring. He had just finished up from another wedding and stepped aside to chat with me. He was already booked for 3 weddings the next day, but he was totally willing to make accommodations and the impossible happen!He offered what I believe was the “greet and sign” private ceremony, where he stopped by my house to officially marry my wife and I, exchanging vows and signing our marriage license. I had my parents there to serve as witnesses, and he even added in a ring exchange as well.He made it way more personable and memorable than I ever expected, and even more, completely saved the day for us and went above and beyond to get us married within such a tight timeframe.Thanks to Chris we’re now officially married and able to plan the formal ceremony on our terms and hold it when it works for us without the pressures of needing to fit it within the 60 day marriage license window.Thanks again so much Chris!

Christopher, from NY Officiants, has officiated our wedding on Sunday, May 1, 2022. He was amazing, a perfect mix of funny and serious. Our family and friends all commented on his perfect delivery of the vows and were surprised to find out Christopher had almost no direction from us. We selected the package that included photography, and are so grateful for it. The photos were amazing and the photo session was a joy, even though neither of us enjoys posing for photos. We highly recommend Christopher and NY Officiants!

I had originally reached out to Chris on a Monday night looking for an officiant for the Friday only a few days in advance. He responded immediately and everything was set up within the hour. We decided to do the meet and greet signing, but it was much more than that. It was the perfect intimate ceremony that we wanted. Chris was extremely professional throughout the whole process and made us feel comfortable during the ceremony. Highly recommended for all types of weddings.

From the moment we met Chris, we felt like we had known each other for years. A zoom meeting that was supposed to be 30 minutes, turned into almost 2 hours! LOL Chris was so personable, informative, patient and honest. He knows this field extremely well. He was able to suggest venues to decor. Certainly knows his bells and whistles. I would trust Chris with my wedding dress decisions! Haha There was no doubt that when we had our meet & greet signing, our friends & family would feel the same about Chris.We were expecting a quick signing but Chris surprised us with a memorable, intimate mini ceremony-like moment. We were full of emotions and gratitude. We will forever remember our signing day 2/22/22 & are honored to have experienced it with such a humble man.We are all looking forward to our BIG wedding day next year with, of course, Chris as our officiant again (AND as our MC!)

Christopher officiated our wedding ceremony in December 2021 in the midst of the Omricon chaos. Although originally planned to use city hall, the process forced us to find alternative solution. We reached out to Christopher last minute via Thumbtack and within minutes he replied and guided us through the process. He was professional, courteous and efficient. We met him on video call first then in Central Park where he showed us a few options and made suggestions where to officiate ceremony and taken a sincere interest in our requirements. We chose a perfect and romantic spot. On the day of the wedding, Christopher delivered an intimate, romantic, charming, spontaneous and humorous service in which it felt as if he had known us for longer than the few days leading up to the wedding and better than we could’ve ever hoped for. We recommend Christopher wholeheartedly!!! Thank you Christopher for being a part of our special day. All the best.

After speaking to over a dozen Wedding Officiants we came across Ny Officiants and spoke with Christopher. We knew right away he was the officiant we wanted. He called us back immediately and was very friendly and comforting. He explained the whole process to us and walked us through the wedding ceremony so we knew what to expect. He wrote us a personalized “Love Story” and our family and guests loved it! If I could get remarried again and do it all over I would choose NY Officiants hands down.

Chris was fantastic!! He made our day feel personable and got to know us within a tight window of the wedding. I actually had two other meeting scheduled with officiants after speaking with Chris and cancel them immediately after we finished talking because he was the superior choice and we got along so well.

Christopher is the perfect wedding officiant for your ceremony. He is responsive to all planning communication. He treated our wedding with the same attention to detail as if it was his own. Moreover, his ceremony presentation is warm, friendly and confident - but avoids drawing focus from the ceremony and couple. I have genuine difficulty coming up with one single thing he could have possibly done differently or better.

Chris is the best officiant there is. Words can’t explain his level of professionalism and how committed he is to this work. My fiancé and I experienced many challenges right before wedding day and Chris was right behind us every step of the way. There was nothing or anyone to stop our special day! He really puts a lot of heart and thought into his words and my guests loved his ceremony, so did my now husband and I. Thank you Chris for making our wedding day so memorable. Absolutely recommend!

My fiancée and I chose to do a very low key, simple ceremony to make our marriage official: we actually went to a Starbucks and had the barista as our witness as Chris said our vows! It was official by the time our lattes were made. Stress-free is the way to be! We were so pleased with how quick and easy it was to book with Chris, he is so responsive, professional, and knowledgeable on the process that it made us feel comfortable and made the experience an extremely positive one. Chris is so friendly and easy to talk to-it’s as if you have been friends with him for years and he listens to what you want your day to be like. Chris definitely cares about the couples he officiates and is married himself so he understands what an exciting time this is. If we do a vow renewal years later, I’d pick Chris again!
He did renewed our vows and he was the best I could’ve ever asked for thank you so much for making our day so beautiful

Christopher officiated our wedding on 7/11/21, our ceremony was better than we could’ve ever imagined! He was very responsive throughout the process and made us feel comfortable walking through all the details of our ceremony beforehand. He made sure our requests on a spiritual ceremony were included, but also kept it very fun! We highly recommend Christopher!

I highly recommend Chris as your officiant! He made the process SO easy from our first interaction. Not only was he on time, charismatic, communicative, and professional, he made our ceremony so unique, creating a personalized love story that painted such a beautiful picture of our relationship. I loved that he encouraged our guests to stay involved, making everyone laugh (but not overly so-the perfect balance of humor and sentiment which is exactly what we were looking for). All of our guests commented on how wonderful the ceremony was, so thank you Chris for making our day that much more special and filled with love 🙂

I highly recommend Christopher if you are in need of an officiant. He made the trip out to Montauk to marry us. The entire process went smoothly and efficiently. Christopher took the time to ensure we had everything needed from the marriage license to the days leading up to the ceremony and most importantly the day of. His charisma and ability to tell our love story felt as if he knew us all along. He truly loves what he does and is a true professional! Thank you Chris!

There aren’t enough words to describe how amazing the experience was! Christopher was very detail oriented. He performed a wonderful ceremony. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house (zoom). His Love Story ceremony was so impactful, numerous members at our reception kept bringing up how incredible he was and how smooth everything went. It was as if a close friend officiated our wedding because his aura and vibe made it seem as if we’d known him forever. We will never EVER forget how magical our day was thanks to you Christopher! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Chris was wonderful! He was professional, fun, entertaining and thoughtful. We had a small ceremony on the beach and he took the time to help us prepare, arrived an hour early and stayed to mingle with the group after. He made all of the guests (and us) laugh, cry and cheer us on. My wife and I would highly recommend using him. You won't be disappointed.
Chris was very detailed in letting pick and choose what we wanted to do for the ceremony but he threw out good ideas and even with the information given felt like he was reading chapters in our lives. Honestly felt like a best friend was officiating the wedding instead of a random stranger. He was polite and nice to all the guests and legit the funniest Officiant I have ever witnessed. He made us laugh, smile and cry. As the Groom he eased my worries and made sure I wasn't a nervous wreck. Top Notch and Triple A Plus. Highly Recommend ! Thanks Chris😁

Chris is an incredible officiant! So easy to work with, quick responses, and very well spoken. I highly recommend him. Thank you again Chris for everything!!
I highly recommend anyone to use Chris to use for their wedding ceremony. With less than 24 hours to my wedding day officiant tested positive for COVID and had to back out from marrying my husband and I. I am beyond grateful that I was able to find Chris and hire him for our ceremony. With such a short turn around he was able to work both quickly and professionally. I honestly could not be happier with how everything went after meeting him and I would highly recommend him to anyone getting married!

Me and my fiancé have been engaged for 3 years. A series of events, including Covid have delayed our marriage. We decided last minute that we were not going to let anything stop us any more and I remembered an old friend from high school who is now marrying people. I called Chris and he not only answered immediately but married us that weekend. He was very professional and accommodating during these tough times. We would recommend Chris’ services to anyone! Thanks again Chris!

Chris far exceeded our expectations. We saw copious positive reviews, but what we got was even better than we'd hoped. My husband and I are very playful, and Chris was able to capture both the seriousness of a marital union as well as the humorous, more silly side of a loving couple. Without knowing us closely, he took every ounce of our phone conversation and created a love story for our ceremony that had our families both laughing and tearing up. We are grateful for the experience that he created. The ceremony was special, and everyone was full of compliments about Chris. One guest even asked how long we'd been friends with him. We highly recommend Chris for a meaningful memory of a very important day.

Husband:
Christopher you are the man!!! A review is not enough to justify the professionalism, energy, attentiveness, knowledge, friendliness, and joy Christopher dedicates to his craft. Christopher you are God sent thank you for all you did to help myself and my wife become one. Christopher is exceptional at what he does, I truly believe he was born/called to be an officiant. I reached out to a few officiants on Thumbtack before connecting with Chris they all never got back to me. His responsiveness was exceptional from the first contact we exchanged numbers and began speaking as though we knew each other for years. I loved the way he guided myself and my wife throughout this process as we had no idea the way things were supposed to go. This process of officiating a wedding virtually is new due to the pandemic but, it seems like he's been doing it for years. We had a last minute virtual on Aug 31 after setting things up for Sept 12. Christopher still followed through on our ceremony on the 12th even though we were already married thanks for being thoughtful. He took time to know our story probably 1hr 30mins speaking to us on the phone. This story was the highlight of the wedding talking about how we met etc it was beautiful. Thanks again Chris you're super super awesome.

Wife:
I truly enjoyed working with Chris for this special day we will always remember. He was kind, helpful and available to all our questions. He is also very flexible because ceremonies don't always go as planned but he was very courteous about it . I especially cherished the time he took to learn about us and our love story; that made the ceremony a thousand times more personal and filled with love. His energy and background made him the perfect person to officiate our union. Thank you again!

From the moment we spoke to Christoper we knew he was going to be our officiant.

Christopher made the most important part of our day UNFORGETTABLE.

He took the time to get to know us and created a beautiful story about us .
He made us feel COMFORTABLE , made us laugh and cry all at once .

Chris was professional , super punctual and available for us before the wedding at any given time.
Most importantly Chris is truly PASSIONATE about his work and his ENERGY is infectious .
I’m not even joking we didn’t want him to leave !

And to top it off he took the time out to help us figure out how we were going to play our music for the ceremony, and helped us coordinate with our bridal party when to play the music. This is just the icing on the cake.

**And for whoever is trying to decide on a wedding officiant just remember MEMORIES are the only thing we have to look back at , and My husband and I are soo GRATEFUL Christopher is now part of our memories forever , and hope he is part of yours to.**
